On the same topic I also spoke last week when in Melb to Christians Dad while  at their very popular North Rd. Cafe. 

Very encouraging report on Christians health and fitness. Let’s say he is winding back his  effort after a huge start to balance out the pre season. Is well above last 2 pre seasons and back in 2021 territory.

Let’s hope he can return to that as he was very instrumental in our success as part of that superbly tuned backline that kick started our attack. We need that back again to connect down field successfully in 2024.

Coincidentally that’s when my leave finally starts and I’ll start sinking cans like a madman.

was in North Point 2 weeks ago, and dint know

 

It was hard NOT to know in 2021. All through the finals series - and way beyond - the joint was decked out in red and blue.

One of Christian's brothers also has a cafe in Church Street Brighton towards the Nepean Highway end. The premiership cup turned up there one time. The family resemblance is unmistakeable.

This is when training officially starts.

Most of the players have chosen to train privately in the meantime. For example, Fritta caught up with Salo a couple of days ago and they went for an early morning run on the beach.

The players know what they can and can’t do in terms of training because they run everything by the Club beforehand.

They get plenty of holidays for professionals 

Except they don’t. It may seem that they do, but in reality they don’t get much “free” time at all. It just seems that way from the outside. Even in the off-season they’re very often attending charity events, visiting sick children in hospital etc. You’d be very surprised to know how much time is devoted to behind the scenes stuff that they do. Even during their downtime pretty much everything they do has to be approved by the Club. I’ve said it before, the Club owns them.

The other cafe is in Bay Street, North Brighton and is called Rock Salt. Very well run place too.

The Salems have sold Rock salt and have got the lease on a new restaurant opening up in the newly built Life saving club at Dendy St beach.Brighton.

Told by Christian’s dad Alex last week.

Opening in a couple of months.

Thanks for the correction. Clearly I don't know Brighton as well as I thought.

The Salem family have sold Rock Salt and it is now under new ownership. A mate went recently and wasn't impressed with the new setup.

Let's see how long it takes for that information to be available on the Clubs website.......perhaps the work experience kids aren't back in school yet?

You mean the SLSC with the temporary fencing that’s taking forever to build?

Yes - l think the initial builder went belly up and they had to find another one

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    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
