I doubt Ben Brown will do much training this season, let alone between short breaks. 
 

Does Trac have any visible bandages or strapping? 

No, maybe just general soreness.

Trac looks fine, no strapping, just not his normal self. The only people with noticeable strapping are Chin and Tom Mc

As training progresses (very casually) and the boys start handing out little footys, BBB and Chin are alternating on the bike. Clarry is in seemingly no discomfort, May still seems sore, Tom Mc did stuff all, Trac was VERY limited and had a long chat with Goody, Chin was very down, shaking his head, BBB walking ok, but not trying to do anything intense. Everybody else seemed ok, BUT, I am 58 and I could have completed that training no problem!!

I have a feeling Trac and Clarry are both playing with one hand tied behind their back(s).

In the Hawthorn game Trac was in visible discomfort with one of his hands and it was the one he ran 100m to punch the ball through for aa point with

I wouldn’t take much out of today, they’ve only had one day of rest after what was a pretty physical encounter.
Our main session would be in two days if we had a full week between games.

There was one point in the 3rd that Trac pulled up sore in a contest.

I remember this, he looked proppy on a left knee/ankle maybe on the outer wing, took his kick but didn’t look comfortable at the time. Channel 7, in their usual way, didn’t follow it up (despite having two boundary riders!).

That was the one. The camera did pan back to him at the next stoppage and he looked to be walking ok. I think he was off the ground for a little bit after that but they never did any follow up with the boundary riders to get an update.

Tholstrop is also training with the main group. 

Had a good game at Casey.

If Chandler doesn't get up he could be in.

PS Given that the sub is no longer a "medical" sub I wonder if we will relax the policy of debutants not being named as the sub

There is of course Laurie who would come into consideration if Chandler is not available

Smacca (McAdam) said he'll be right to play by next Monday (roughly).*

Whether that's via Casey or straight in... who knows.

The 5 day break came at the worst possible time.

I personally don’t think there’s ever a good time for a 5 day break. 

They only exist to satisfy Channel 7 and their insatiable desire for Thursday night footy. Which, when we’re involved, I hate.

We really should have been scheduled to play Port on the Friday night giving us a 6 day break. The AFL should try to avoid 5 day breaks as much as possible if not at all.

crows won't have got too much of an advantage.  one more day for them, but they had the long flight before and after their game which would have cut into that extra day

plus crows got 2 injuries to mllera and  murphy - both knee injuries

Crows played Friday in Perth.

It's fair

Look on the bright side. We are playing Adelaide when they are in a slump and the same with the Lions. Win those two and we are setting up a solid launchpad for top 4.

Five weeks ago few if any would have thought we could win all three

It looked to me like he jarred his knee. Very frustrating they never followed up. But he seemed to run it out by the next contest and played out the game. If he did jar it he would be mighty sore today. Fingers crossed he gets up.

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    POSTGAME: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    Once again inaccuracy and inefficiency going inside 50 rears it's ugly head as the Demons suffered their second loss on the trot and their fourth loss in five games as they go down to the Pies by 38 points on Kings Birthday at the MCG.

    It's Game Day and the Demons are once again faced with a classic 8 point game against a traditional rival on King's Birthday at the MCG. A famous victory will see them reclaim a place in the Top 8 whereas a loss will be another blow for their finals credentials.

    BOILED LOLLIES by The Oracle

    In the space of a month Melbourne has gone from chocolates to boiled lollies in terms of its standing as a candidate for the AFL premiership.  The club faces its moment of truth against a badly bruised up Collingwood at the MCG. A win will give it some respite but even then, it won’t be regarded particularly well being against an opponent carrying the burden of an injured playing list. A loss would be a disaster. The Demons have gone from a six/two win/loss ratio and a strong percentag

    CLEAN HANDS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons headed into town and up Sydney Road to take on the lowly Coburg Lions who have been perennial VFL easy beats and sitting on one win for the season. Last year, Casey beat them in a practice match when resting their AFL listed players. That’s how bad they were. Nobody respected them on Saturday and clearly not the Demons who came to the game with 22 players (ten MFC), but whether they came out to play is another matter because for the most part, their intensity was lacking an
