Does anyone know whether overseas members with WatchAFL can see it please?

The WatchAFL app only has the official Community Series practice matches listed and not the Scratch Matches so this Scratch Match against the Tigers might not be available but our next Practice Match against the Blues will be.

Went to put Kayo back on and it’s $35 per month so ended up buying an armchair membership for $250 so works out about $20 per month and I assume will go towards our membership tally, so anyone with Kayo who are paying the $35 cancel it and sign up through the club 

Will check this out. Tx

The statement on the club website says:

For those who can't make the trip to Casey Fields, the match will be be broadcast live on Fox Footy, available on Kayo Sports and Foxtel.

WatchAFL also gives you access to Fox Footy so am assuming you can watch it (although their TV Guide seems to be broken at the moment!!).

Hi 640md.   I live permanently os, so never used Kayo. I use WatchAFL on ipad, phone or laptop. Works fine. 
Part of WatchAFL is "Fox Footy" so hopefully the Richmond will show up there. 
Cheers

Kayo does not work overseas unless you are using a VPN to trick it into thinking you're in Australia. Even then it doesn't always work. If you are overseas I would recommend forking out for the month by month subscription for Watch AFL but don't do what I did and forget to cancel the month to month subscription and end up paying for an extra 3 months like I did for the pleasure of watching Melbourne vs GWS.

Side note: your viewing experience will depend on the quality of the internet that you have. In Fiji our hotel had crappy Wifi and I could not watch the last quarter at all. The scores in the AFL app wouldn't even update and I got a rude shock once it finally updated and I saw we lost.

Is that a 24/7 live stream of the Fox Footy channel on Foxtel or just On Demand standalone streams of their programs like On the Couch, AFL 360, First Crack etc?

If it's the former then you will be able to watch the Melb vs Rich scratch match. If it's the ladder then you will have to hope they make it available after the match as a standalone.

WatchAFL has 5 headings to choose from:

"Home", "Matches", "Shows" (which has on the couch, first crack etc.)  "Channel" which I guess is a stream of Fox Footy (having never watched it in Oz) where you can also replay some older ones such as RDB Memorial, trading days etc., and finally "Ladder".

For the literalists out there, I know 7 is an odd number. But, it seems odd as much figuratively as literally. I can't get my head around why there are going to be 7 periods of play.

Yes not enough red wine.  

I think we've got 35 fit listed players. If they all play 4 quarters that's 35 x 4 = 140 player-quarters.

A full team across 7 quarters requires 22 x 7 = 154 player-quarters.

We're short 14 player-quarters.  We're going to need at least 4 Casey extras to make up the difference, or 14 players play 5 quarters, or they reduce it to 6 quarters and we only need 132 player-quarters and 8 players only need to play 3 quarters.

I think the last solution makes most sense.

If Channel is a direct stream of the Fox Footy Channel 504 on Foxtel then you should be able to watch the Scratch Match LIVE.

This sounds like a fantastic initiative by the club. Just like a the family day but with a practice match as an added bonus. Will be a fantastic day and turnout I'm sure. 

Some others are talking up the pies effort. 4.30 midweek on a work/school day is never a good time. Followed by a "Jumper Presentation" which was the players walking onto a balcony 15m above the fans which I heard only a handful stayed around for as it took a considerable time to start after as the players warmed down and showered after the game. A lot of family/kids where seen leaving disappointed after not being able to wait around any longer having to get kids home for dinner and ready for school the next day.

I asked Chat GPT to write a match preview for our Scratch Match against the Tigers. Hilarity ensued.

Match Preview: Melbourne Demons vs. Richmond Tigers Practice Match

Date: Sunday, February 18th, 2024
Location: TBD

Introduction: As the AFL preseason gains momentum, the Melbourne Demons are gearing up to face the Richmond Tigers in what promises to be an electrifying practice match. Both teams are utilizing this opportunity to fine-tune their strategies, assess player form, and build cohesion ahead of the upcoming season.

Melbourne Demons: The Melbourne Demons enter this practice match with high hopes after an impressive showing last season, where they made it to the finals series. Led by their seasoned coach and bolstered by a talented roster, including key players such as Max Gawn, Christian Petracca, and Clayton Oliver, the Demons aim to set the tone for the season ahead. With a mix of experience and youthful exuberance, Melbourne will look to assert their dominance early and lay down a marker against a formidable opponent.

Richmond Tigers: On the other side of the field, the Richmond Tigers are no strangers to success, having secured multiple premierships in recent years. Despite facing some challenges last season, including injuries to key personnel, the Tigers remain a force to be reckoned with. Led by their astute coach and with stars like Dustin Martin, Jack Riewoldt, and Tom Lynch in their ranks, Richmond will be eager to demonstrate their championship pedigree even in a preseason encounter. Expect them to bring intensity and resilience as they test their combinations and tactics ahead of the grueling AFL campaign.

Key Matchups:

  • Max Gawn vs. Toby Nankervis: The battle in the ruck will be pivotal, with Gawn's height and athleticism matched against Nankervis' physicality and work rate.
  • Christian Petracca vs. Dustin Martin: A clash of two dynamic midfielders known for their explosiveness and ability to influence games single-handedly.
  • Melbourne's Forward Line vs. Richmond's Defense: Can Melbourne's forward line, spearheaded by Jack Viney and Ben Brown, break through Richmond's stout defensive unit?

Expectations: This practice match offers both teams an invaluable opportunity to assess their preseason preparations and experiment with different strategies. While the result is secondary to the performance and progress made, both the Melbourne Demons and the Richmond Tigers will be eager to showcase their strengths and identify areas for improvement. Fans can anticipate an enthralling contest filled with skill, intensity, and perhaps a glimpse of what's to come in the AFL season ahead.

Conclusion: As the Melbourne Demons square off against the Richmond Tigers in this preseason clash, football enthusiasts can look forward to a captivating display of Australian Rules football. With pride and momentum on the line, both teams will leave no stone unturned in their pursuit of victory. Whether you're a passionate supporter or a neutral observer, this match promises to deliver excitement and anticipation as the AFL season draws nearer.

    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

    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
