A text exchange with my triumvirate of Gosch’s girls…

I’ve taught them well 😂

I think I just witnessed them crossing Punt road to go the servo, you’ve got more teaching to do. Learnings as Goody would say

They went to the shops to buy a Mars Bar to give to Kozzie, apparently it’s his favourite chocolate bar (I have no idea how they know this). They came back with slurpies and chips and forgot to buy the Mars bar. So yes, I’ve got a ways to go with them.

I’m not worried about their food choices, more so their decisions to step out, retreat, run, stop half way, run back and eventually make it across one or Melbourne’s busiest roads. Using the traffic lights would be my suggestion.

I’m on my way to Gosch’s, as are a few other DL-ers, no doubt. It’s not raining so the wussier among us will turn up 😁

I’ll leave training reports up to the others since I’ll be otherwise engaged…

For my illustrious leader and me, today is ‘Wrangle The Dads Day.’ She knits little footy jumpers and puts them on teddy bears for new dads and dads-to-be and we have four to give out today, including this little one…

🥹❤️💙

Edit: she also does the same for mums and mums-to-be. 

Update: we successfully corralled the new dads, Tommo and Maxy and the two dads-to-be, Kozzie and Nibs. All very grateful recipients, especially Nibs coz Nibs. His baby is due in 10 days!

How cool, a  Bubba Nibs and Bubba Kozzie.
 

Mama Nibs’ tracker has Baby Nibs clicking up 22.3km of inside belly turning this week, 121 sucks of the thumb and 76 kicks with 100% efficiency. 
Good work WCW.

Monday's closed sessions? 

Yesterday I was told by one of the trainers that the Casey sessions (Mon and Weds) are open. Also, the fact that the Club has bothered to announce training sessions leads one to think they must be open.

I would assume that any of the sessions not listed would be considered "Closed" or at the very least unadvertised in order to not encourage attendance.

Some injury updates on our players here.

Petty having a planned 'down week' at training which will hopefully allay some fears.

that was a really great report. Both questions and answers, Thanks for those responsible.

good that Richo was able to confirm Dland training reports so congrats for all those posters who keep us up to date or indeed ahead of the game.

Some observations from my DA buddy who’s at Casey right now…

Maysie and Vines are training with the main group.👍🏽

Schache attack going really well up against Maxy.

Caleb Windsor will play in opening round (that’s a lock-in 😂)

Clarrie has been running all morning. Looking good but still has a ways to go.

The match sim is underway right now, after which the boys have a “HUGE running session” lined up, according to one of the training staff. (They’re gonna just luuuurve that! 😅 especially Maysie who recently told me he f*****g HATES running)

It seems it’s the ‘A’ team vs the ‘B’ team. B team actually holding their own. Caleb is in the A team. Kolt is in the B team. TMac in the A team.

BTW, where are our track-watchers this morning?

Apparently it’s a case of “Windsor… Wow. Just wow.” He and Tracc together = amazing

This is great to hear, been mixed reviews so far. Hopefully it's a sign that he's a quick learner?

Hey Kev, these Casey track-watchers aren’t as diligent as us Gosch’s track-watchers, huh? Not one report, thus far. Sheesh  😒

Just now, DistrACTION Jackson said:

Do we think Schache is a genuine chance for round 1 as ruck/forward?

I don't mind it personally if he's upped his physicality, as he is super mobile.

We've all wished that at some point. His papers were largely marked when he couldn't get near it against a second string North side.

They'll get there, be nice.

They need our support, it is not a competition.

Grateful for any input. 

Thanks for conveying your mates observations.

Maybe more a sign of poor judges 

Yep I definitely saw the positive side last week. He was touted as an outside player and yet his attack on the ball was just as good as any other player. He had the added bonus of being silky smooth, quick and accurate. If there is any knock on him I couldn’t see it.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    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.
