Brown Dog jr could be a better player than the Kolt. 

Or... they might both end up being VG players

Hunter’s been very professional late but he’s still fallen over when there’s any kind of contest and had penetration in the legs, couldn’t get near picking him on this performance 

I'll politely disagree.  I'd go as far to say he is a certainty to be in the 23 against the Tigers.  Match winning second half.

Interesting that Turner went forward and looked excellent until he then went behind the ball once we had the lead. He is too good for VFL, even after a stint off, is this the attempt to find him an AFL spot as the third tall forward if/when Brown wains?

A good comeback against mature bodies on a skinny ground. There is something to work with, with Verrall, Pup and possibly Sestan.

Whether it’s this year or next, we are going to need another tall forward be it to replace Brown or Petty or both.
Perhaps the club is confident that Adams will come good down back and will be able to replace Tmac/May in the longer term, and they see a more immediate need to find another fall forward. Also with Hore now on the list, there is probably a bit of overlap for that third intercept defensive role.

Some encouraging performances today Kynan Brown 3 goals, 8 tackles. Bailey Laurie 13 hand passes, 17 tackles! Will Verrall 31 hitouts, 4 tackles 20 disposals. Daniel Turner 9 marks, 3 tackles, 1 terrific last qt. goal. Oliver Sestan 20 disposals 3 goals. AMZ 6 tackles, 16 disposals. Tom Fullarton 2 goals 7 marks, 21 disposals. Josh Schache 3 goals, 7 marks, and Lachie Hunter 22 disposals, 4 tackles (mostly in the second half).

Mate of mine said Shack attack went of early with what looked like a broken collarbone, but came on and was very physical which is great!

Jeffo developing some  real forward craft.

Yes. I keep hearing he is a wonderful mark of the football. Except today he didn't take any. But on a positive note, his 4 disposals is 3 more than he had in the last final Casey played in.

I don't think I have ever seen a player with less presence, at any level.

Someone has to take this kid aside and tell him the facts of life.

What I like about Turner is he crashes packs with force when going for a pack mark, he is also a good reader of the play and a good kick and mark.

I couldn't of put it better myself. Here's a kid with as much chance of making the grade as me.

Just when these players need a game to display match day skills we get another bye.

There's possibly some life in Laurie.

Don't mind players being exposed to other positions especially the half forwards and pockets.

BBB should only play 3 out of every five games IMO. There's a spot which would probably have gone to Joel S in the off weeks but it's definitely up for grabs.

McAdam at the next Casey match could be worth the entry fee

Agree. He has some speed about him and decent ground ball skills for a tall as well. I would give it a go.

If you check today’s statistics l’ve probably got egg on my face. When the game result was being fiercely contested in the last quarter. Two team orientated interventions from young Jefferson contributed to the Casey win. A cool handball in the goal square melee to Pup Brown. Allowing him the minimal time and space to snap a goal to take the lead for Casey for the first time. Followed up by a goal face shepherd which helped extend the Casey lead. Very small steps in the big picture but there is a glint of light there.
 

I’m hopeful the old adage tall forwards take time applies. But l can understand why people make early calls. I’m sure the decision makers don’t want egg on their faces. There was a recent contract extension provided to young Jefferson, so they are keeping the faith. But the ball is in Jeffo’s court.

I dunno Roost, you showed plenty for the Chum Creek under 9s. Show a bit of patience. Some kids develop at different pace. Remember how some were calling for McVee to be delisted at the start of last season.

Wandered down today to sunny Franga, quickly inserting myself into the quarter time huddle and congratulating the Kolt on playing his first game. Max, JVR were there also.

Very small crowd and found myself standing next to Alan Richardson, McWalter? and Goody.

What I can say is that, through a little subtle eaves dropping, (I.e. reading a newspaper with two eye holes for visibility) the following definitely  impressed Goody and Richo:

Sestan

Lachie Hunter - particularly second half.

Verall

 

Choco Williams is a great clubman. Gets around players. A master of instilling belief.

I’ve watched about 15 Casey games with him in them. He has shown nothing to suggest he’s going to make it. Doesn’t take marks, doesn’t kick goals, doesn’t hit packs and is only an average kick.

You're making this up. As far as I remember nobody ever called for McVee to be delisted.  

Where's your proof  ??

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had
