Compensation for the loss of Angus


Recommended Posts

In an ideal world we would get a top 5 AFL draft pick for the loss of Angus Brayshaw. It is what we rightfully deserve as compensation.

But sadly the real world and the AFL doesn't work like that. We get shafted and Collingwood win a Flag with an act of vile thuggery going unpunished.

Hopefully, with room in the salary cap we can lure a highly sort after Free Agent to the Demons? I am sure there's a few possibe star players we can enquire about.

We didn't have a train on player because we didn't have any list spots. Pretty simple. Juts because we didn't have a pick past round 1 doesn't mean we don't know what's out there.  Maybe that's exactly why we didn't have a pick past round 1.

Another logical reasoned answer  to another attempt to embarrass the FD and chief recruiting officers. Somewhere between an army vehicle and a sledgehammer approach is Poita’s approach. In between occasionally a balanced left  uppercut that grazes the chin for a point!!

Meanwhile not having a big bodied backup ruckman for Max this season and looking for another skinny 18 year old ruckman in the draft, who will take another 3 years to develop.

I am sure we would all rest a lot easier, having say a 24 year old, 204cm and 102 kg Brynn Teakle, on our list for 1-2 years, playing at Casey, just in case.

We are now 2 players down on the list for the year, or at least until mid season draft, which operates in same order at that time, as National draft does later.

Not sure if any other club is in that position.

If we had a pick now, we could take anyone we wanted who was available.

Anyway it's not happening, so we move on.



Or perhaps they looked at Teake and thought "even if Max goes down, we dont believe he has thebfitness/skills/attributes to play AFL" and noted that "drafting a Teakle means Verall and Fullerton would get significantly less experience and game time and therefote development at Casey" so chose not to waste a pick/money on him?

We where keen also, I believe he verbally agreed to move but had a change of heart

Looks like then we dodged not just a bullet but a bloody big raving lunatic.

Acting under no one's orders, i think not.

    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
