Can't believe the negative nonsense written about Marty Hore by posters. 

He is a very handy signing. He has good skills & can fill in wing, or in defence & only injury prevented him becoming a permanent player last time round.

He'll also be an ideal player at Casey.

I agree, don't understand why people think he should be the last choice if his form warrants it he should play in the seniors but it will be hard for him because teams usually promote youngsters ahead of older players.

He is no wingman and would be behind Ed and Hunter, Woey, Howes, Billings, Chandler, Spargo, Gus, Bowey, Rivers, Laurie, McVee  and possibly even Windsor at least, to be tried there.

He certainly could play anywhere in the back half though, if needed.

I have already given Hunter’s wing to Windsor Redleg.

For good reason 

Thsts why Hore should be last selected . Also why Disco should be ahead of Tommo except ageist a monster forward,

Hope you are right, Hunter’s disposal is very ordinary.

But BT would really miss his “wow, Richo, another Hunter special, underground handpass, JB”.   
PS : BT, all of Hunter’s low handpasses remain above the ground.

There's a reason Marty Hore was delisted two years ago (several of them actually), and nothing that he has done since in that joke of a VFL competition, will convince me that he fills any of the gaping holes in our list.

It's a really poor list management decision, unless we are trying to lift Casey back into finals contention.

Yes and the reason was injury. That's why we let him go.

Its actually a very smart list management decision.

We need experienced players at Casey mentoring the kids & keeping the seconds team competitive.

I suspect the real reason he is back is as insurance for May and Lever, if Turner and Adams are injured, or are not thought good enough at this stage. Turner is obviously well ahead of Adams at this stage.

Ha had a very good year this year at Williamstown and it is not a shocking move, but rather a surprising one, to some extent, from the view of fans, obviously not the FD though.

To that end I can see us draft/trading for a couple of key position players next year.

  • Demonland changed the title to Welcome Back to Demonland Marty Hore

You’ve really got to applaud his professionalism and work ethic. Didn’t get his shot until 23, looked good at the level, gets a season ending injury, delisted, does absolutely everything he can to keep at it, and gets another shot.

I’ll be cheering extra hard for Marty this year. I love these kinds of stories. It’s good for footy.

I don’t mind Marty Ho and good luck to Oscar, incredibly determined hard work workers to climb back on to AFL lists.

If they don’t turn out as good as Sashy and Laurie, I will eat my hat

Add him to the list of Melbourne players who left and subsequently returned some time later. Carl Ditterich and Gary Hardeman are on that list. Who else? (I'm ignoring WW2 which impacted on players like Bluey Truscott and maybe Jack Mueller).

Crackers.

100% and full credit to him (and others like Oscar and Corey Wagner).

That never say die attitude and personal resilience not to drop your bundle when the chips are down post being delisted is the sort of attitude and culture that we want at the club.

I think this is also sensible in respects to getting a bit thin for mid - key back depth with Hibbo gone, Petty poised to play mainly key forward and some question marks over the availability of Joel Smith.

Smart move by the club in my book and good luck to Marty second time around in the mighty red and blue.

Is Marty your brother ? Seriously gushing over a 28 yo defender who played 14 average games in a modest year. 
I hope Disco gets a fair go ahead of Marty and can only see him as a break glass if broken 8th, 9th or 10th defender, 

Also believe Disco  is a really nice young man as well and can play a bit. 

Agreed, Disco def ahead of MH 💯 but Marty offers depth, kicking, decision making & helps sure up stocks well. We’re extremely thin down back esp in that mid-range size so he fits A need & we don’t give away list spots for fun so again, I defer to JT & his team above ANY of you fine specimens, which is why — for me — I’m wrapped cus if we’ve added him it means he’s up to it & for a guy that hasn’t had a lot of luck, I rkn that’s a great thing! 
 

So no, not my brother — but he’s a demon I like due to his assets, they offer something different we don’t have a surplus of! So relax a little & lighten the hell up, such a group of grumpy sods on here. Bloody hell it’s exhausting

    GAMEDAY: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    It's Game Day and it very well could be the last roll of the dice for the Demon's finals aspirations in 2024. A loss to the bottom side would be another embarrassing moment in a cursed year for the Dees whilst a win could be the spark they need to reignite the fire in the belly.

    THE HUNTER by The Oracle

    Something struck me as I sat on the couch watching the tragedy of North Melbourne’s attempt to beat Collingwood unfold on Sunday afternoon at the MCG.    It was three quarter time, the scoreboard had the Pies on 12.7.79, a respectable 63.16% in terms of goal kicking ratio. Meanwhile, the Roos’ 18.2.110 was off the charts at 90.00% shooting accuracy. I was thinking at the same time of Melbourne’s final score only six days before, a woeful 6.15.51 or 28.57% against Collingwood’s 14.5.89

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    After two disappointing back to back losses the Demons have the bye in Round 14 and then face perennial cellar dweller North Melbourne at the MCG on Saturday night in Round 15. Who comes in and who goes out?
