I believe his challenge will be dealing with some sledging

I'd be surprised...

In most cases these days personal stuff would be a no go zone unless you're a certain Brisbaner.

Viney, but I think they have told him to curtail his whack-'em mold

For sure Big kev.He's well spoken with wonderful hair but he will certainly give you something to remember the game by. And probably smile while he does it. All round class is our Jack. Love his work.

On the subject of agro, was it just me but did Maxy look like he'd taken one of his get annoyed pills in the practice game?

Yes seemed he had a point to prove. I hope they remember it's a marathon of a season though and don't blow their load before September again.

He left the FC

Would you rather Viney tap him on the backside every time he gets a kick?

Has to be one of the silliest comments on demonland. Nothing but respect to JJ, he busted his balls for us.

Not sure why we are the underdogs in this one, Sydney aren't that great a side and are missing a lot of first choice mids especially if Adams is out as well now....the SCG doesnt hold any fears for us we should be able to come away with the W

We're coming in on the betting market, it's nearly now even odds for both teams, have a feeling well be slight favourites by Wednesday.

Oliver to play per Sam Edmund on SEN this morning. The club has apparently been impressed with his attitude, training standards, investment in his teammates etc...

I think there is now enough noise to suggest that he'll be playing.

I reckon this bloke would have sorted him out nicely (and a reminder about how many sleeps to go to the start of the season).

Loved Jacko, followed him from end to end every quarter, possibly the most offbeat and entertaining Dee of all time.

That said… his bark was infinitely more frightening than his bite

That is, his bite as an enforcer/thug. His bite as a forward was consistently underrated.

Have had opposition supporters saying they have inside info he won’t play all year.

I have been replying all summer without any inside info, that he will play first round if his fitness is ok and Medical people have no issue.

Hopefully he plays and has a great season and sticks it up the whole AFL media and opposition.

Well we had dancing with your sister game against Richmond and then dancing with your aunt against the blues, now the season starts and I will be interested in watching how the forward lines works this year get this right and the season will look after itself.

All big ticks for clarry.

But also a massive tick for the club, how it has handled this situation, and yes its culture.

And a massive cross for the media and the media model.

Slam us for months with all the preseason from hell and salacious innuendo bulltish. Drive a narrative not supported by the facts. All's fair in clicks and war.

And then don't balance that with any retractions or contrary stories and information.

Sure, when clarry gets back and we are travellimg ok there will be a few token redemption stories, good for clicks.

But they won't come close to balancing out all the slanderous, false narrative rubbish the media has thrown at the club for the last five months.

By the by, Sammy is one of the few footy journalists I respect. He has been a lone voice of balance and non hyperbole. Good on him.

So Clarry comes in for Pickett and no doubt pushes Tracc and Sparrow forward more. Nice little 5 man rotation with Salem and Viney.

I still think Woey’s versatility makes him the right choice for sub.

Only selection decisions left might be what to do with the struggling talls at each end but I’m guessing status quo unless Fullarton or T Mc really look the goods at training and in the invisible vfl game last week.

Love to see it. Sounds like it'll be the first 22 from the Carlton game with Oliver replacing Kozzie?

Melky weighted and change of angles work. Salem has his individual program. White cap (no contact), Howes, Woewodin and Sparrow

    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

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.
