That song with the families was fantastic.

It certainly was! It's really embracing everybody in the club and family. Loved it.

This is what a love about 2023.

The club has bought in new blood and experimented with the list. McVee, Chandler (as a regular), Woey Jnr and JVR. We have traded in proven talent to strengthen the list, Hunter and Grundy. 

After today the obvious!! Petty as a forward. I never agreed with the nay sayers saying he ain’t a forward. He is out best option. If not kicking goals, he is agile, good aerially, competes defensively and on the ground. Today the opposition will take notice. He will now get in the head of opposition coaches and players as a forward. Throw in JVR, who is also multi dimensional, we are less predictable in our weakness. KPF’s. My Caveat to this is BBB and TMac were instrumental in a Premiership and should be celebrated in our history. Injury and age have caught up with their great careers. 
 

Our midfield has more options. JJ, Sparrow, Brayshaw (playing more in recent times), Pickett, Rivers are there to provide a contest and contribute to our intercept game, and we still have Viney, Trac and Oliver…… 
 

Big tick to our coaching staff for all of the above and recognising our contest style of game was outdated, focusing on an intercept game (the new trend), whilst never giving up on our strength. Our defence. 
 

I’m enjoying this year so much more than last year. Let’s hope it’s as good as 2021.

An intense high pressure cracking game !!!

The toiges did us for pressure and intensity early and had our measure.

But .... along came Max ... big bad Max the mountain!!!

You will NEVER see a better performance in the ruck - EVER !!!!

A number of other top performances but I must single out Petty. He played more like  a forward than any other forward ( bar Fitta ) than we have played this year.

A very tough game - fortunate to have Norf next week.

There is a feeling in the Bitter nethers that says, " this is our year" !

GO DEES !!!!!

Agree with everything Uncle, however his 5 goals against Geelong in the 2021 prelim was also up there.

It can't be understated how impressive Jake Melksham has been in the absence of Bayley Fritsch.

He's gone from a surefire delist at seasons end to warranting another contract for 2024.

I was wrong.

Richmond really brought the heat and got out to 20pts three times. But we withstood and Max drove us home. That was a truly great win in an epic contest.

Petty and the Tiger breakers.

I’m glad the match committee and selectors thought Petty can play as a forward. Where’s Picket Fence?

So much for my stupid nightmares. That was a very impressive win against a fairly decent side. If Max is not the best ruckman I have seen then you can tinkle me pinkles.

What a weird game!

Hated the ball pinging around early and likes of Dusty getting on the end of three.

Second half was excellent and the last quarter thanks to Max and others the ball just stayed in our half.

Less mistakes by our backline this week.

Petty's contested marks brilliant.

Viney is such a warrior.

JVR great kicking at goal.

Some of McVee's running out of the backline was spectacular.

Salem came good in the second half.

Woey and Harmes were a huge worry.

    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.
