CASEY: Rd 05 vs Richmond


KC from Casey

Recommended Posts

Thought Dunstan deserves a go espcially if Sparrow is underperforming. Brown and McDonald looked average, is a problem we need to get sorted going forward as both look a bit old. Tomlinson needs to see a psychologist, he is shocking out there at the moment.

he got his hands on the footy 

BBB had difficulty causing defensive pressure. His best efforts would be spreading his arms out and kind of zoning an area making the opponent with the ball have only 180 ° of exit. He looked a lot taller than any of the Tigers backs. Should have dominated and missing set shots without much angle is bad footy. Didn't appear to be much wind out at Casey given that a kite was flying above the field. Need to want to win and not just be satisfied if they want to be AFL. Competitiveness is a must. Best players don't even like losing at tiddlywinks.

No White, Moose Munro or Baldi leaves us short in the middle at this level. I, too, worry about our midfield depth. We must use those 4 x top 36 draft picks this year to compliment our current on-ball brigade and look towards the future beyond Clarrie, Trac and Vines.

Not big on stats myself it's what you do with them that counts, unfortunately a lot of his disposals were wasted.

BBB, TMac & Tommo all struggled & at times their fumbles were embarrassing.

Given all 3 have struggled to hold down a spot in the last year or so you would think all 3 are at the crossroads.

Dunstan missed some quite simple hit ups. Those turnovers will kill us at AFL level. Sparrow has a good kick, and is getting better the more his confidence rises. Agree, that he appears to be struggling, but he may be playing his team role well. At the captain's run today, they were using Tom as an outside runner/ball receiver (unusual, as he is usually in and under/around). 

 Dunstan is good for the development of young players, like Woey and AMW, at those stoppages.

3165 needs a bit of support and he will give positive feedback as well as his honest opinions. Certainly dislikes personal hits.

He reads and knows the game well, I like his opinions and he is brave enough to put alternative perspectives out there.

This was a big problem today...with BBB and Tommy, the Tiges just walked the ball out with ease.

There wasn't much forward pressure at all and it needed to start with the senior players.

All well and good, Kev. But it’s THE WAY in which he expresses his opinions, regardless of how valuable they might be. His belligerence is unproductive and unnecessary. It’s tiresome and irritating and serves no purpose.

He dislikes personal hits? Who doesn’t? I wonder if he knows why he cops personal hits. Common denominator etc.

He likes biting back, if we treat him kindly then the discussion is unlikely to be about the personal. As he said a few times, "debate his opinion" not his scathing remarks, and I think you will find a reasonable intelligence.

I don't sugar coat it, and will refuse to, if someone writes something that can be debated, well that's good and I like that and the same goes for me, but when you answer with rubbish and you are just negative then that's not a debate or point of view, all you need to do is explain where you think i am wrong and go from there, that's the problem here, I have explained my view of some players but people complain without explaining why or are willing to accept players flaws because they like them.

Went along today and all I'll say is that as disappointing a loss as today was for Casey, it was as equally an impressive win for Richmond. Winning at Casey Fields is not easy, and they ran and spread really well from contest to contest while nullifying our run. They were also very accurate in front of goal, at one stage being 14.4 while at one point we were 2.10. That there was the game.

My take outs from this week.

1. James Harmes has given himself every chance of a recall. He was clearly our best and competed all day.

2. Casey's senior players are very important. No Munro, no White and no Buntine today and Casey lost. There should have been enough AFL experience out there to cover, however you could tell that senior core was still missed. Especially Munro.

3. Top heavy Casey. Today Casey went in with Bell in the ruck, Farris-White 2nd ruck, Brown, McDonald, Jefferson and Sestan forward. As a result Richmond ran the ball out of the back line with ease and got to 28 points in front. Casey started to get back into it once McDonald moved into the ruck  and Casey ensured they always had at least 2 of Bell, Farris-White, Brown, Jefferson or McDonald on the bench and improved their run across the ground. This could mean we won't see Bell with Casey for a while.

4. Bad kicking = Bad football. Casey had more scoring shots and could have easily won had they converted better. Mean while Richmond converted most opportunities and deserved their victory.

Until next time.

I think you might find that I only fire back when posters have a crack first after I post an opinion, but I will take what you have said on board.

Early days but I'm not seeing much to enthuse from Jefferson.

Just doesn't really get involved.

 

early season he showed a bit but I was surprised he didn't do better today as he would have been up against the third defender. The forward delivery though was very bad... high and wayward

For his development he needs a quarter each week as the main target

Didn’t he kick a goal from the boundary line?

It would not have been easy with BBB and Tmac, as it seemed they wanted to play through them a majority of the time and as a young player he might have been a bit intimidating in not wanting to get in the way, so to speak.

I've only read your "fire back", as a challenge to debate. Haven't read a word where you do personal attacks.

Some are very defensive/protective of our players, and know many players families read demonland. 

My advice would be to do twice as many positive opinions as honest negative one's. WCW is a sweet person, if you also show the positive, I think she would be more supportive. Her feedback showed that, when you were positive about one of my posts.

Here’s an idea… how about him NOT making scathing remarks in the first place. If he doesn’t want them to be debated, why include them at all?

Any chance you’d consider also taking what I said onboard? Even some of it?

Incidentally, I won’t put you on ignore as you suggested since I actually learn from your posts. It’s just that the nasty delivery is making it really difficult to tolerate.

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had
