PRACTICE MATCH: Sunday February 18th 2024 @ Casey Fields



Recommended Posts

This is now confirmed. Practice match on Sunday, February 18th vs Richmond at Casey Fields. Start time yet to be decided.

The Demon Army will be putting on a sausage sizzle and we’re thinking it will be a good turnout since this is one of a couple of events this preseason that are essentially in place of a traditional Family Day, and because Richmond fans will no doubt turn up. This will be an important opportunity for us to raise some much-needed funds, too. Those giant heads don’t grow on trees, y’ know. Well, they’re made of paper so I guess they actually do grow on trees but y’all know what I mean. 😁

We need to outnumber the Tigers fans, so please try to come and support our beloved Dees. Let’s make this a wonderful prelude to season 2024!

GO DEES!!!

❤️💙

Good work WCW

Do you know why there was no traditional family day this year? It was a great event last year i thought. I would definitely have brought the kids along this year again.

We attended the family day out at Casey fields last year and had a great day and it was well attended, should be huge with the Tiges supporters there as well.!!

Maybe because our preseason is effectively a week shorter ? 

That’s the reason. Our first match is two weeks earlier than in previous seasons, yet we still have two practice matches scheduled. Instead of a Family Day, we’re having a sausage sizzle, activities for kids etc. at both practice matches. The aspect of Family Day that appeals to many, ie. getting pics with and autographs from players, is something the Club will decide. And whereas we know the practice match vs Carlton at Ikon is a ticketed event, we’ve not yet been told if the same applies at the vs Richmond at Casey match.

Disappiontingly, will be in Apollo Bay at this time, and would have looked forward to two double snag delights with onions and that special recipe WCW Sauce! Made to a recipe, not just a price🤩

But never fear..... I should be out and about in slthera land this Monday, I hope!

The real question @WalkingCivilWar

Will there be Cupcakes in the DA tent?

I hope so!!! How good are those cupcakes?! I’m pretty sure they’ll be on offer at both practice matches. 😋

Also, @picket fence… I’m always “Till B!ttch” at our BBQs. I’ve only been on cooking duties once and never will be allowed again since it seems not many folks like their snags well-done, and by well-done I meant burnt beyond recognition. Go figure 🤷‍♀️

I did cooking duties at the original(?) Gosch's and QB Fed Sq barbies.

Pressure!

Interesting that it is against Richmond where they have Yze as Coach and we have McQualter in our den. Should make for an interesting fight.

[censored] I'd love to go and watch, sounds like a good way to spend a Sunday, but Casey Fields is such a pain in the backside to get too... hope we get to see plenty of our new names running around and get given some real game time.

I've never been out to Casey, but planning to go watch the practice match.

Keen to get people's thoughts on if it is better to train out there or drive and park?

Why so early? Is there a banner for practice games or will there be a BBQ?

A BBQ. It takes a while to set up and we wanna be ready for the first wave of people since this is an opportunity to raise funds (in the absence of an official Family Day).  But a banner for practice games would be funny 😆

I got super excited this weekend when I realised our first hit out is only two weeks away!

It’ll be here before we know it, Stu!

Seven quarters where we’ll get to see everyone in action.

Recent history says Richmond supporters will turn up in big numbers.

So we need as many of our supporters as possible to attend! Yes folks can watch it at home on Kayo, but our players can’t see/hear them. If you ask our boys (and girls), they’ll tell you it makes a world of difference when they know we’re there, and I know because I’ve asked them, of course I’ve asked them. 😅

    TROUBLE by The Oracle

    Situated roughly in Australia's geographic centre, Alice Springs has for many years been a troubled town suffering from intermittent crime waves, particularly among its younger residents. There was a time a little while ago when things were so bad that some even doubted the annual AFL game in the town would proceed.  Now, the hope is that this Sunday’s Melbourne vs Fremantle encounter will bring joy to the residents of the town and that through the sport and the example of the participants,

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w
