I need too get the laundry done could you pick that up and do it.  You seem to have enough time to  do things that are important.  Both the training and the laundry are important.  
 

thanks in anticipation

Dragged my sad n sorry arze off the couch to come here. Really should be at home but I’m meeting my *Gosch’s girls here, didn’t wanna let ‘em down.

*three delightful teenage girls whom I met at Gosch’s in the off-season and who are too shy to ask the players for selfies/autographs therefore need someone with more front than Myer to do it for them and that’s where I come into the picture. 😁

Any comments about training very welcome 

Here’s my comment about training…they trained.

That’s pretty much all I’ve got because I saw Kev there and asked him to do a training report. 😁

I did watch a loooong session of some of the boys taking shots at goal. Two words: Chin Chandler. Nailing shots from the boundary on ridiculous angles, a joy to behold. You don’t need to watch Chin kicking for goal because as soon as it leaves his boot he knows if it’s going through in which case he’s silent. But if it’s not going through be lets loose with a very loud “OH [censored]!!!” 😂

Bear in mind I’m PT-ing it. Your laundry basket better be on wheels.

Back in the day we had some deelightful teenage girls in the CS wanting to meat players.  Non too shy if I remember 

maybe these girls are grand daughters of those same girls.   Do any of them resemble old melb players ?

I met a lovely couple from WA at Gosch’s. It’s their daughter’s eighth birthday and to celebrate they’ve come over for training today and the match tomorrow. Demonland readers but not posters. Just wanted to let you guys know it was awesome to meet you and I apologise for running off suddenly but there were players to annoy. 😝 Enjoy the match tomorrow!

Misty feel about the morning. 

Backs first out with Petty and TMac interacting with them.

Suggest Hunter the sub. Woey was doing plenty of plays.

Setting themselves with slings along the boundary connecting the backs to mids.

From the mid-stoppages to central corridor, the spread out the back.

Kossie is in his own zone.

All good MD. Hard to take a large screen TV on the train anyways.

Unrelated: Soz about leaving your undies drawer in a mess. And you really should open a bank account… it’s much safer.

I wouldn’t mention it since it seems some people believe it shouldn’t have happened. ☹️

Everyone left when the players finished up but I stayed and watched the Casey boys for a bit. Not because I’m a dedicated fan but because my Gosch’s girls are crushing hard on Kolt and wanted to stay and watch him. I thought a Rooey fix would’ve been enough for them, but clearly not. Oh, to be 17 again.

No one in their right mind.  You iron it before you hang it out ...

Have the leaves finished falling yet at GP?

Many thanks

PS Out of interest does the oval suffer from dog droppings or is someone on pre training pooper scooper duty

Oh if only you had been around when I was going to training and was 17 and too shy to talk to the players.  I spent hours not talking to Sean Wight whilst sitting on the picket fence at the G with him after he did his knee (wish I'd talked to him, he always waved to me if he saw me thereafter, think he remains my favourite ever player, even more than Robbie).  Then we moved to the Junction Oval from the G and that was the pits.  Russell Richards and the Febey twins would give me a lift up to the city since they were driving to Seymour and the walk back to St Kilda station was unpleasant.

These days I've got the guts go to talk to people, cos they are people, but I'm also old and married.  And in another country, which makes going to training difficult.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    It's Game Day and it very well could be the last roll of the dice for the Demon's finals aspirations in 2024. A loss to the bottom side would be another embarrassing moment in a cursed year for the Dees whilst a win could be the spark they need to reignite the fire in the belly.

    THE HUNTER by The Oracle

    Something struck me as I sat on the couch watching the tragedy of North Melbourne’s attempt to beat Collingwood unfold on Sunday afternoon at the MCG.    It was three quarter time, the scoreboard had the Pies on 12.7.79, a respectable 63.16% in terms of goal kicking ratio. Meanwhile, the Roos’ 18.2.110 was off the charts at 90.00% shooting accuracy. I was thinking at the same time of Melbourne’s final score only six days before, a woeful 6.15.51 or 28.57% against Collingwood’s 14.5.89

    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

    After two disappointing back to back losses the Demons have the bye in Round 14 and then face perennial cellar dweller North Melbourne at the MCG on Saturday night in Round 15. Who comes in and who goes out?
