joeboy great start to the season, agree with much of your pithy triplets. Reality is a dish best served up cold.  A trifle harsh on Judd McVee (Jekyll and Hyde). Some excellent moments with a few diabolical lapses. Ed Langdon on my viewing had a (blue colour performance).

Schace - never again please

I'm not one to bag players, and was more than happy to be open to the idea schache might be OK.

But as we saw with weed, if a player hasn't got instinctive grunt and fire they rarely can develop it.

Slippery night, so the talls get a pass on marking, but his lack of second efforts and inability to hold his ground are woeful.

Both were on display in a contest where Grundy marked on the wing, on his chest. Weak effort by schache. They got a goal as a result.

And those attributes means it hard to see him making it as a second ruck.

Let's dump on Schache

Yay!! A whipping boy!!

I just did/was.

But you make a fair point.

There were plenty of others who played worse.

Well I thought Shache was good vs Carlton, but a week is a long time in footy so here goes

Shache Only in emergency

Spargo 97 lucky games

Laurie Back to Casey

Chandler Back to Casey

Sadly we will see him again.

It's what happens when key fwds are out from serious injuries for several seasons and the club just sits around doing nothing about it.

Oh sorry we recruited Grundy for a season. My bad.

Really think we need more from Nibbler.

He seems to have lost a lot of his form.

As has Langdon, Lever and Rivers.

Time for Chandler to find himself at Casey and Laurie should never have left them.

I'm hearing you, but to be fair to Schache, Grundy cannonballed into him and he's much bigger and stronger

He's not a 2nd ruck

And while we're on it, Grundy ran into Gawn ALL night and Gawn did nothing to allay the tactic

Dumb play or dumb coaching?

I think this is the most glaring example of the club/coach/captain’s stubbornness I’ve ever seen.

Grundy rendered Gawn almost useless from the very first bounce and we had absolutely nothing up our sleeve to rectify it.

    TRAINING: Tuesday 28th May 2024

    Veteran Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin returned to the training track to bring you the following observations from Gosch's Paddock this morning. Beautiful morning for training. The dew has dried, out from AAMI, quiet chatting. Maysie does his heart symbol. 7 in rehab, Turner, Hore, Sestan, BBB, Petty, Spargo and Schache. All in runners. 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.
