TRAINING: Wednesday 10th April 2024



Recommended Posts

Our recruiters must again be lauded if we have our two top picks playing regular minutes for the year. Fingers crossed Kolt gets his debut.

 MFC Casey players are out now.

All rehabbers have joined them, Marty, McAdam, Melky, Bowey, Sestan.

Sestan has some left shoulder strapping.

McAdam doing well. Accelerating with power and some beautiful shimmies and cutting lines in a handball comp/drill.

No, not Marty. Trainers call him out, he wanted to be in the drills, but no. Also, not Bowey. Though they both play in the structural sims.

White caps are Sestan and Turner, (no tackling).

Hunter doing some instructions when the sims breaks.

The squad is looking classy, rarely any errors.

McAdam is looking the goods, (in the sim), running hard defensively and when attacking. 

Schache is playing well.

Jefferson gets lost at times, needs more work on his decisions and intention. When he has space, he kills it with skills.

Andy Moniz-Wakefield is in the backline.

Wonder if Kolt debut as a sub is on the cards, with Woewodin coming into the 22.

That seems logical given the need for Woewodin to get some much needed game time. He's averaged 14% of game time this year in the seniors.

Unlike others, I'm not against a debutant starting as sub. Whatever works best for the team and I'd imagine Kolt would rather start as the sub on the big Thursday night stage as opposed to playing a full game at Port Melbourne on the weekend.

Hmmmm. Weren’t you right next to me when I asked Chocco to blink once if Kolt’s in this week? Remember? He squeezed his eyes shut so tightly… and only once. 🥳

Haha ...for your eyes only!  It certainly looked like Choco to me if that was him blinking 😅

Oh, he was blinking… he was definitely blinking. And my eyesight may leave a lot to be desired but that was definitely Chocco. 😅

I don’t think we’ve ever done that with a debutant. I hope it stays that way.

A group of kids from Herman’s Bay, west of Alice Springs were at training. They got to meet the players for pics etc. First time out of NT for them, and tomorrow night they’ll be at the game. They were extremely shy. I made them feel welcome (and a little scared maybe) and their guide translated for us, mostly smack talk since not one of them barracks for the Dees. 😅 Diehard Crows, Freo, WCE fans and a couple of Lions fans(!)

Anyways, this is me with Nicholas (their guide), Joel, Byron, and Leo (the tall boy) who gets to toss the coin tomorrow night. I told him I’ll be watching from the front row and if Maxy doesn’t win the toss, he’ll have me to answer to. 😠 He knew I was kidding… I hope.

Note cheeky bugger Byron isn’t wearing the scarf the Club gave him. It was in his hoodie pocket. He’s a passionate Lions fan so that’s where the scarf stayed, even during pic-taking. Gotta love the dedication 😊

If Kolt is in you would presume he would know early to give his family time to come over to watch his debut game.

l like it. Tough on Bailey Laurie who has been in and out and hasn’t had a settled run at it. Was good in the game against the swans last year but hasn’t really grasped his limited opportunities when presented. Time for someone else to get a chance.

Would be cruel to get his family over from Esperance last minute only to run him for 5 mins at the end of the 4th quarter

    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

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th
