Welcome to Demonland Caleb Windsor

Recommended Posts

Imagine Caleb's face if he read this and saw people comparing him to Robbie Flower...reckon he'd like that a bit!

Outside of Harley Reid (who is a very different player) I reckon we got the best pick of the draft with him.

He has more pace than Robbie and is taller but he has a long way to go to be as good, maybe when he has played over 200 games we can then say Caleb Windsor was a great player in the mould of Robbie Flower.

He plays a lot shorter than Flower though. Flowers’s marking prowess looks to have been underrated based on what I’ve seen (too young to have seen him live).

Been trying to keep the lid on, but this kid is a freak, simply going to be an enormous star, and he DOES remind me of Robbie more than anyone. (There, I’ve said it). 

Exciting young player. It’s like seeing Oliver and Petracca in their first year and realising that they are special players. 
Windsor is a lightly built player who will take a lot of physical punishment from opponents. He is going to be physically tested every game. He might be tough but it will take its toll as the season progresses. So I hope that he can be rested and managed from a long term perspective because we don’t want to see his progress impeded by serious injury or simply wear and tear. 
Let’s hope we can look after him because at this rate he is going to attract the attention of all the big cashed up Victorian Clubs. He will be another Oliver and Petracca.

A question for the Demonland brains trust, as Caleb develops does he have the tools to play in the middle, aka Butters or Rozee? or is he too slight...

I think he does. He is actually quite similar in size to what Rozee was in his first season.

Robbie was a great mark, Chook. He could take a ride for a screamer, and dive to take marks or one-handers that nobody else would. Knew to never get involved in a body contest, cos didn’t have the body-work skills of say, Fritta (similar build). I’m resuming my judgment on Caleb’s overhead skills just yet, only cos hasn’t been presented yet. Would complete the picture, no doubt.

Definitely has the hands and decision making in tight, so he will be a centre bounce player when he gets enough muscle.

What makes you think we are not a cashed up big Bic Club at the end of 2024. ? Enough to hold Caleb for his first 5/6 years.

Caleb was born 18 years after Robbie retired! 

He is more likely to say "Who the hell is Robbie Flower?" 😅

Early days but you could be right! The 2023 Draft class is starting to look like a promising bunch. 

Read and Walter are future guns for GC/the team they head to after there contract runs out. 

Wilson, Sanders, Reid, And Watson are all having impact already! 

Duursma and Mckercher look very promising too. The difference is Caleb gets to slot into a very consistent and high preforming 22. The poor Roos kids are stuck in an absolute rabble. Reminds me of what we did to Scully & Trenners.

Having said all that, Caleb at pick 7 is looking like an absolute steal! Now bring on the Kolt!

I was not suggesting anything mate. Only that he will attract  attention from other clubs. Hopefully we will be able to look after him financially. What do you think?

Caleb has been really good and I really like him as a player, but the hype on here (and elsewhere) is astronomical IMO.

Should get the rising star nom this week.  There is a bit of Sam Walsh about this kid. He’s going to be the inside outside player we have been waiting for. Might take him another 1-2 years of weights but he’ll be another gun.

We’ve been blessed to see Clayton Oliver come through as a phenom. But this kid excites me even more. He simply has it all, and I cannot see a weakness in his game.

That is high praise and will hopefully turn out to be spot on.

He is hitting the scoreboard, should have had 2 tonight, possibly 3, give the 3 points. He also beat (was it?) Cameron on the wing in a 1v1 at one point.

A very good game again.

    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

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak

    MELBOURNE BUSINESS by The Oracle

    In days of old, this week’s Thursday night AFL match up between the Demons and the Blues would be framed on the basis of the need to redress the fact that Carlton “stole” last year’s semi final away from Melbourne and with it, their hopes for the premiership.  A hot gospelling coach might point out to his charges that they were the better team on the night in all facets and that poor kicking for goal and a couple of lapses at the death cost them what was rightfully theirs. Moreover, now was
