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.

    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

    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.
