CASEY: Rd 16 vs Sandringham

Recommended Posts

Making a special effort to get along to this game. Hope to get a good crowd of Demons to celebrate James "Moose" Munro's 150 game for Casey. Mrs Dw has ordered a set of antlers and hopes they arrive in time. Seriously, Jimmy is one of the nicest blokes and deserves every accolade we can give him.

Brings back memories of the tensions when Juice Newton played with Saunders (?).

Sandy didn't do us many favours but IIRC we won a premiership with them in about 1996

Nick Sautner was the incumbent full forward at Sandringham in those days. 

Good player but a development road block from a Melbourne perspective. 

That said,  I don't think Juice did himself that many favours either.

Do Melbourne members have to pay for away VFL games, or are these covered in the AFL membership also?

I used to love getting down to TBO to watch Sandy play when we were aligned with them. That 3-peat of premierships from 2004-06 were fantastic to watch.

Have a lot of great memories of the Sandy alignment and went to a lot of games during that time. It's a great footy club and John Mennie was a great general manager. It a lot of ways they would still be my VFL club, nothing against Casey but I don't have the same connection with them other than seeing how our listed players are going there.

Pre pandemic away members got in for half price $5... not sure how it works these days

I can recall Goody borrowing a membership card so he could get in for $5 at Coburg one day.

Looking forward to a catering and ground report from Sandringham. Hopefully a big win on Saturday night will see a lot of happy AFL players among the spectators

Who is listed with J. Smith playing yesterday part of the last quarter (or does he get a run with both teams)?

very interested to see where they play joel smith - you'd think with all of jvr, jefferson, schache down forward we'd be top heavy with him there, and with turner out we might be a titch light on for talls down back

his versatility is so important as to why he remains on the fringes of afl level

hoping to see laurie move thru the midfield a bit more today

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    POSTGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    After a very wasteful first half of footy the Demons ended up cruising to a clinical victory over the Saints by 38 points at the MCG and ultimately reclaimed a coveted spot in the Top 4.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.
