Is it just me or is Tracc looking a little flabby? Maybe he overindulged while overseas. 

Yeah it is just you. 

Joel Smith is awaiting instruction from the AFL for his hearing. 

He is in contact with Gary Pert, Alan Richardson and Reece Conca. He has also spoken to Goody.

Just on players who are not at training, what's the situation with Joel Smith? Is he still "provisionally suspended"? And what does that even mean? 

When training officially starts he is not allowed to commence training at the footy club on official duties. 

Has to train away from the club full stop.

Training this Monday, is it at Goshes or snakey Casey?

I'm just reading on the AFL website that Collingwood will start their preseason at Gosches due to resurfacing works:

What the actual [censored]? Please don't tell me we're stepping aside to accommodate those [censored]. I don't give a toss that we have Casey to train at. They can [censored] off somewhere else.... preferably Bairnsdale

What have you got against Bairnsdale? 😀

Absolutely nothing! It was the first place that popped into my head that was an adequate distance from Melbourne. How about the sewage treatment plant at Werribee? A bit too close but it seems to fit the bill?

When did sides 9 to 18 start their preseason?  Its been almost 3 months since R24.

If MFC start next Monday then within a few weeks they'll be packing up for another long Christmas/ NY break.

When they finally get around to training, how many days a week are they out on the track?  2 or 3?

I hope they find the time to get some goal kicking practice . We couldnt hit the side of a ship in 2023.

Why can’t they train at Victoria Park, it hosts AFLW games.

Collingwood will train away from Olympic Park across the first block of the pre-season due to resurfacing works, with the group set to start on Gosch's Paddock before spending most of the next month training at Victoria Park.

Wayne - if you could refrain from interrupting my tantrum, that would be appreciated. Any entry onto Gosch's cannot be considered anything other than an official turf war, however brief. We are, after all, talking about the Filth.

Thank you, I rest my case

Training wouldn't be of a high standard out there.  Players would just be going through the motions.

And they’d be bog ordinary anyways.

What's wrong with Werribee GODS COUNTRY! They finished second you know, better than Casey.

Fair point.  There's a little bit of all of us in Werribee.

Huh! Many of us in rural areas are on septic!

    PREGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    The Demons return to the MCG to take on the Saints in Round 11 on the back of two straight losses in a row. With Jake Lever out with concussion who comes in and who goes out?

    VOTES: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Last week Captain Max Gawn consolidated his lead over reigning champion Christian Petracca in the Demonland Player of the Year Award. Steven May, Alex Neal-Bullen & Jake Lever make up the Top 5. Your votes for the loss against the Blues. 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    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

    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
