They have invited 10 year members down to Gosch's. Nothing on website training pages.

Apparently by email, crowd is building, no players yet, probably 11 am start.

I'll report when I get back home.

Addit:11.10 players still not out.

Dang it. I forgot about this. Looking forward to your report Kev.

Rehab group update would be appreciated as well as whether Max is back training in full.

Rehab, Verral, K.Turner, Viney, and Salem.

All the rest in full training.

Gawn, Hibbo, J. Smith, Farris-White, Lever, BBB.

Sorry have to leave.

Hopefully someone else here can give a full report.

Didn't stick around for training but was there for a few words from Kate Roffey and Alan Richardson, left after the squad had been warming up for 20 mins or so.

According to Richardson, at this stage it looks like Gawn will be playing this week (was very close last week) but they'll give him a few sessions this week and won't make the call until closer to game day.

Richardson sounded less positive about Lever's chances for this week, wasn't a definitive 'no' but basically suggested he's not in Gawn's position of being over the ankle concerns he's got. Sounds like he might need another week. (Keen to hear what training he does).

Salem still 4 weeks away at least.

Brown was close last week but just been experiencing back soreness. Looked pretty good to me in the warmups (Keen to also hear what training he does).

Roffey thanked all members and pushed for all those in attendance to get their Melbourne supporting non-member friends and acquaintances to sign up too, so get on board Demonlanders if you haven't already!

Just left what must have been the lowest intensity training I think I have been to anywhere anytime. Probably get more serious later in the week. Gawn was leading the field in run throughs from end to end. But didn't take part in much else from what I saw. Lever looked fine to me but it wasn't exactly a tough session. Brown looked 100% as did most others. In Summary don't take much from today. After being at the hanger on Sunday and the paddock today it is  like champagne and river water. Thank god it wasn't raining.

Look at the bright side, at least no Essendon supporters around you 😁

The previous trainings for the start of the week have that I have been to, have all been a kinda stretch and run through, without much else. They last about 40 minutes. 

Today's, the players appeared low key, not much joy, exuberance or talking. Which was unusual, but understandable given the weekends game.

Alan Richardson had a Q&A, plenty of questions about what happened in Adelaide. Couldn't hear his response.

First time at training since finals 1987.

It wasnt much harder than D Grade Ammo's in the mid 70's, missing the compulsory 2 laps jogging and kick to kick before start.

Seemed a good sized crowd there.

I didnt notice that much noise on the field.  Just appeared to be a professional group going about their business.

Spargo was not there that I could see.

The players are great with the fans, especially the kids.  I was too embarrased to ask for a selfie but hope greatness will rub off on me during the work week.

The highlight for me was Hunter kicking a couple of dropkick goals from near the boundary.

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    EARLY BIRDS by KC from Casey

    Wet, slippery conditions and threatening rainfalls greeted the VFL Bombers at the end of their long journey southeast of the big city on Sunday. The threatening weather combined with the fact that neither side had realistic prospects of advancing to action in September, meant that spectators gathered at a cold Casey Fields weren’t expecting a classic exhibition of football. Nor did they get one. Instead they were presented with a dour struggle that never reached great heights. It was a

    HEAVENS ABOVE by Molly Melbourne

    Who said the football gods and scoreboard attendants at the MCG don’t have a sense of humour? The gods spent a whole week teasing Demon and Bomber fans alike about Saturday night’s game. About how the entire match would be dominated by the hulking, brooding figures of 205cm Sam Draper and his 2IC Peter Wright lapping it up in the absence of Melbourne skipper and the club's No.1, No 2, No 3 and No 4 ruckman Max Gawn in the wake of that ankle injury. They painted pictures of Simon Goodwin ne
