PRESEASON TRAINING: Tuesday 27th February 2024

Recommended Posts

Looks like the main group is winding down with forwards having shots for goal.

Couple of mids are doing one on ones from a tap down from the ruck.

Couple of the defenders lining up to either have the ball drilled into the from Chaplin from close in or kicked high in the air.

Great work Andy.  Thanks!  Is K. Brown with the forwards?  Is he involved and looking sharp?

Forwards. Have been very impressed with Brown all summer. Trains hard and plays hard as we saw the other week. Won’t die for lack of trying.

Most players have gone back to the rooms. Trac, Viney, Chandler, Windsor, Howes, Fritsch, K Brown, Kozzy & Bowser having shots for goal. 

Bowser.  That’s interesting.

Is there anything of significance in that observation that the Herald Sun can use to base another story about the club and its culture?

As @ANG13 mentioned it saves on sunscreen so theoretically the HS could run a story that we are in financial strife by skimping on sunblock.

Oliver forced to wear long sleeves as Demons face financial ruins. More to come.

Guessing Hunter and Spargo won't be playing tomorrow night and thus round zero?

Baring any hitches the 23 that trained today will be the starting 23 tomorrow night and with the exception of Kozzy (and fingers crossed no injuries) will likely be the 22 for Opening Round. With Kozzy out of OR there is a spot up for grabs so perhaps it could be Clarry. Also someone could impress in the 2s tomorrow and claim a spot.

Thanks Andy, was Ben Brown training? 

No. He was not amongst the 2s players training separately from the 1s. I named him in the list of players not training with either the 1s or the 2s.

Players not in either group: Melksham, McAdam, Hunter, Spargo, Petty, Smith, B Brown, Turner

Hmm. On paper that is not a forward line worthy of finals. Take Kozzy out for our opening game and it's bottom 6 stuff.

I would hope we're gonna see some Petracca forward early in the season like we did for periods last year, but with Angus gone and Clarry out for now, we aren't deep at centre bounce or stoppages either.

I'm trying to be positive, but there's definitely some worry for the first 5-10 rounds of the season.

Positively, there's huge room for us to improve up forward if we can get the likes of Petty and McAdam fit. I really hope Woewodin is ready to play soon too.

Just on McAdam and his injury.

I went to training over a month ago when McAdam was jogging along the boundary presumably after he first sustained this current injury and was just beginning his rehab. From my untrained eye he does not look that much further along in his recovery. Granted at that time he looked uncomfortable and today he didn't look uncomfortable but I have no idea how far away he is from returning to full training. That first training session I reported him running laps could have been a few days ago. Melksham looked fitter and more ready to return to training than McAdam in my uneducated opinion. To quote the Castle "It's just the Vibe". I have no medical training and I don't know if there has been a relapse or recurrence of the injury or perhaps that's just how he runs so make of that observation what you will.

Appreciate your reports, Andy.  Like most of us, I'm ready for footy again.

At this stage it looks like a close race between Verrall and Fullarton for the ignominy of having their surnames continually misspelled.  (The crown is vacant with the retirement of Bradshaw.)

    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

    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

    POSTGAME: Rd 09 vs Carlton

    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.
