No food outlets at Goshs, although on Punt road there is servo (though with a young un you will probably need to cross the road at tge swan and putn road intersection)

Pretty sure there is a toilet in the park somewhere. 

Players seem to be fine with post season happy snaps and autographs after training, partic for little kids.

In Round 3 we play Port Adelaide on Saturday night 30th March and then play Adelaide the following week in Gather Round on the Thursday night (4th April) off a 5 day break to the Crows 6 day break with a trip back from Perth.

You'd have to think we will stay in Adelaide given the short turn around. We would be crazy not to with all that traveling back and forth especially with the 5 day break in between.

Our match the next week in Round 5 is also a Thursday night (11th April) against Brisbane before we get a bye leading into a Wednesday night ANZAC eve game on 24th April.

Maybe they will come home, Adelaide is only 45min flight, similar to a drive down to Geelong(and we've had plenty of practice at that)

There is Edwin's Cafe, located at AAMI Park. Not usually open Saturday and Sunday, unless a game day (I think 2 hrs before game).

There is a Cafe and kiosk in the Botanical gardens.

There is a pop us food place right next to the entrance to Richmond station on Swan street. 

There is a toilet ( one of the old cast iron versions from the 1800's) at the NW corner of the playing fields, right on Swan st.

Yeah but you don't have to travel for 30 minutes to get to your car on the way to Geelong and wait for 45 minutes before the car doors open and you can get inside, then wait 15 minutes getting out of the car at Geelong, 30 minutes to get your bag from the boot and 30 minutes to travel back home from your car.

That’s at least an extra 2+ hours each trip. IMHO they'd be mad not to stay in Adelaide.

not to mention the interminable delay of cancelled / postponed flights!

i'm sure i heard on a podcast that they are staying in adelaide this week, which would seem to be a sensible decision to make

If it is a family school holiday open training event at Gosch's, they often hire a few portable toilets and have a coffee van and food truck attend.  Demon Army might also be running a sausage sizzle.  I suggest emailing the club and asking.  I also suggest using the portable loos early, or wear gumboots.

    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.

    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
