Yes, will be on Kayo. I was planning to go to take my young son for a spot of live footy but having second thoughts now given the very hot day predicted for tomorrow ... 🤔

You won’t be able to attend anyways, 31. It’s now a closed event meaning no spectators. ☹️

That is for the VFL side, not the senior AFL side.

Ripper, WCW, I'm in Adelaide now, so I cannot miss this one - let's hope the game quietens those amongst us on DL who have early-season jitters, doubts and criticisms. I reckon we will knock a nervous Carlton into no-man's land.

I fully agree, Deemania!!! We’ll shut the naysayers up… until next week, anyways. 😅

GO THE MIGHTY DEES ❤️💙

Now you’ll just have to settle for seeing one of your Blues teams get smashed instead of both 🤭

Err That was my point TBC!!!!V There is no clear info on injuries missing players or time frames

No wonder there is speculation around here 

Not well done MFC Media

I am sick and tired of D/Lers blaming the MFC media ad nauseam. 

Some here had tasteless potshots over the last day. If they had looked at the Training schedule released today was the return after a break. So if no news exists no news is given especially no Club updates. 

On another level some D/Lers on here seem to reckon that they are privileged and entitled to extra news, inclusion,etc from the Club. As if for having the privilege to vent their feelings and opinions in this forum it gives the opportunity for extra Club to shower them with exclusive content etc. Others are “I have given $xxx and ….you know the lines. 

We are all passionate fans and of course are different but this forum is really for getting some things off your chests and also sharing in the highlights of our footy and gloating occasionally or being frustrated or angry on others. It provides a great opportunity but we are not owed any more than the other fans that choose to be more private. 

BTW Kent still don’t see the point in publishing a list of TBC, it served not one persons information in the least.  May as well put the iconic 4-6 weeks if you thought it funny or sending a message!

I thought that was in reference to the VFL game, not the AFL one?

I wonder how they’ll enforce it if the VFL game is after the AFL game? You’d have to imagine that they’ll have a hard time clearing the place out before the VFL game starts.

Guessing Salem will be getting some midfield minutes tomorrow night.

Hopefully he goes well given there's an opening now.

Midfield minutes will be a plus for him to expose his wares in a newer role; however, his role and chartered history is to play a dynamic 'midfielders function' in the backline to the rest of the field before him and in so doing, exposing pathways for others to creatively exploit in the passing of the ball to (and through) goal(s). Hope he is fit and unencumbered with illness/injury and if so, should have a rip-snorter game ahead of him and into the season. He certainly has the class to achieve once again this season.

Hehe, not too bothered by results in pre-season games, just hoping both teams have a good workout but with no injuries.

Big opportunities for Howes and Laurie to nail their spots.

T Mc, Fullarton, Woey all chances to push their case returning from injuries in the VFL game as well as Clarry obviously.

If Verral was serviceable both as a relief ruck and as a fwd vs Richmond why not try him vs Carlton?

he can rotate through ffw and ruck with schache

Did Fullerton grow a new leg? According to Tom Browne, didn’t it need to be amputated a few weeks ago?

Looked to be moving well as were all the other recently injured players that were on Casey Demons list.

I'm of the understanding that the VFL game starts at 10:30am and will be non-attendance. 

The AFL game starts at 5:40pm and will be open to attendance.

    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

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak

    The Demons were blown out of the water in the first quarter and clawed their way back into the contest but it was a case of too little too late as they lost another close one to Carlton losing by 1 point at the MCG.

    MELBOURNE BUSINESS by The Oracle

    In days of old, this week’s Thursday night AFL match up between the Demons and the Blues would be framed on the basis of the need to redress the fact that Carlton “stole” last year’s semi final away from Melbourne and with it, their hopes for the premiership.  A hot gospelling coach might point out to his charges that they were the better team on the night in all facets and that poor kicking for goal and a couple of lapses at the death cost them what was rightfully theirs. Moreover, now was
