INV. Taj might be a chance in a couple of years ( games perhaps)  not a star but very solid, just needs a couple of pre seasons and more game time. 
He will be a lock for the 22. 
 

why do we play guys who have been injured and rush them straight back in.

Moniz, Jefferson, Sestan, Adams, Verral, Kynan Brown, get them in.

Moniz - yes, forward or back he’s worth a go soon. Personally now we have defensive options with Salem, Bowey and Woey we should chuck Moniz forward at Casey and see if he can produce some 20 touches, 5 tackle, 2 goal games 

Jefferson, Adams, Verrall - no way, not physically ready and losing their match up most weeks at vfl. They’d get smoked at afl level. 

Kolt and Kynan Brown - maybe soon, but absolutely no rush with either, they are working on their craft as mid/forwards at Casey.

Sestan - no for now. He can earn a debut in the back end of the year if he’s consistent at vfl level but I don’t think he’s a medium forward at afl level, he’s a high half forward/mid and that means building that tank, a lot!

Who for?

Drop the kids to play the kids?

This was always going to happen - a completely inert performance from a bunch of blokes playing a new way off defensive transition.

Progress isn’t linear.

Hopefully picking half Casey's squad will help us match their fine achievements this year.

Like when Port reunited the Mark Neeld All Stars of Barry, Toumpas, Trengove and Watts.

None of those players listed are much good and none are physically ready, otherwise they would be playing already.

The fact that Howes and Billings are regular selections despite being consistently ordinary proves this. 

I'm hopeful on Brown, not confident on Tholstrup and resigned to the rest not making it.

Because when we lose some people get very angry and want to sack everyone 

Thats what the Gameday thread appears to be for.

    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.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    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
