 The one commentator who loves the Dees is Montagna.

Probably sees the defensive game plan similar to St.Kildas when he was playing under Ross Lyon.

Oliver: not sure which one:- 

• party time again

• couldn’t attempt spoil

• pulled up short

• very average game

• team carried him

• hand troubling him

Go watch the third quarter again. Instrumental.

This guy had barely no pre season, a mountain of personal issues to deal with, and is playing with a busted hand. The glaring lack of understanding and empathy is totally unnecessary. 

This guy has carried our side more than once and you can’t find me one player at Casey who could come in and be half as good as he is, even at his current lower output. 

10 pressure acts, equal second highest clearance, highest goal assists. And he did not pull up short, he avoided a suspension. To suggest Clarry is nothing but incredibly brave and tough is plain wrong. Try playing with a dislocated finger.

He had a great last quarter 

He was good in the first quarter as well. He busted his guts last night. My only criticism is he sometimes reverts to long bombs. We've been treated to how well he passes and, then again, many of his possessions are in the middle of scrimmages and guess who is always in the middle of them? I love the guy.

I think he long bombs so often because he is using so much strength to break free. 
He was well tagged early, but was still a huge contributor

Agree - he's been on us right from the start of the season.  Was calling out that he thought the of feild turmoil could have the effect of galvanizing the team when everyone else was writing us off and adding to the pile on.  It's been quite refreshing really.

 

Also makes me laugh how some of the networks have reported that we've had a purple patch of form to start the season 3W - 1L (now 4W - 1L).  Wouldn't so much call that a purple patch when we've done it practically the last 3 seasons in a row prior, I'd just say that we've been performing up to existing standards and expectations for the team.

Billings will not want to watch that game again.  Snatching at chances is one thing, but that attempt at a tackle on Rankin was not our brand.

Not Billings his best effort but the bloke hasn't played in 2 years, is learning a new system and was coming off a 5 day break. I think he's coming along ok. 

He will know there are competitors for his spot. Taj has had two small bites, probably not enought to stake a major claim though (tool us way to long to get Brown off and him on in the last qtr though). 

Hunter will need to prove himself at Casey.  

And eventually it will be impossble to ignore the Kolt.

Commentators are like the weather changes every minute each one has a different perspective on the game and quite frankly who cares, if people get upset over their calling I suggest they take a Bex and a good lie down because next week they say the opposite the following week.

    TROUBLE by The Oracle

    Situated roughly in Australia's geographic centre, Alice Springs has for many years been a troubled town suffering from intermittent crime waves, particularly among its younger residents. There was a time a little while ago when things were so bad that some even doubted the annual AFL game in the town would proceed.  Now, the hope is that this Sunday’s Melbourne vs Fremantle encounter will bring joy to the residents of the town and that through the sport and the example of the participants,

    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
