  4. Let’s not get into semantics here. You know exactly what I mean. Goodwin is delivering his message by talking, in response to a question he’s been asked verbally. When people say ‘less talking, more action’ or words to that affect, in response to a player or coach who’s holding a mandatory press conference, you have to shake your head in disbelief, or maybe laugh and shake your head at the same time.

  7. Since coming into this season seemingly underbaked, we’ve improved each week. Our forwards started to gell last week, and our ability to connect across the ground took another step toward the levels we hit late last year. Continue on this improvement trajectory and we should have the saints covered.

  9. I was there for 1 hr. Very windy conditions. Pruess - not convinced he will play this week, trained away from main group and left track early, taking 1 handed chest marks as to not favour his crook shoulder. May, Lever, Bradkte, Maynard - trained away from main group. AVB, Hannan, KK - not sighted. Lewis, Lockhart, Jetta - all trained fully and are available for selection, Lewis looked good. Sparrow stood out to me in match simulation, was in everything... ANB was training hard also.

  10. Stretch is not fast, not sure why so many think he offers pace. He is aerobically fit, so he can run long distances. But he is not fast and is not powerful in his running movement. Oscar is slow and is stinking it up generally and St Kilda have a small forward line so Lewis and Jetta make sense as ins. Lewis offers some composure with ball in hand also. Jetta can lock down on Gresham hopefully. St Kilda's hard running will only hurt us if we're poor with our ball use. Anything like the first three rounds and we lose. I'm not confident because of our form but if we can link up well through all areas and if we're efficient inside 50, we should have a comfortable win. Their back six is sketchy.

  12. Bigger BS. Re writing history is an art form for some. I have never to my memory denigrated a player, other than this bloke, who has left us for greater financial reward and there have been plenty over the years. This bloke is a scumbag. His lying is there for all to see. To our dying President, to the members when he said I am staying and want to be a one club player, to his team mates, even to the public at large. when he was interviewed at Sydney Airport with his family and said he was just having a look around and then the next day a video was being sold at outlets with him in his GWS gear. We know the video wasn’t made that night. I suspect he even lied to GWS about his injury to get to Hawthorn just like he did with that terrible knee injury he had, which disappeared when he left us for GWS. To me this bloke is scum.

  13. I dunno - do guys who are pre-peak with (say) 500k on the table ever really go “pff, I’m worth 550-600 easy, I’m outta here”? Young players leave if they’re pissed off or get a massively better offer. The club rates Weideman, so I can’t see any realistic scenario where he doesn’t sign on.

  14. F$#k Leigh Matthews is tough to listen to. First he says "that's efficiency with a capital "I". Then says the game flows better with more free kicks... STFU & retire you dumbass

  16. Maybe he won't make it at another club, and is better off and content with being handy depth when the coach requires it. Why can't players make a career of providing 5-10 games of injury cover per year while making the VFL side strong with consistent performances? Every club needs their Brendan Whitecrosses of this world

  17. Great to see Omac finally dropped. He needs to work on his game but needs to do it in the seconds not the senior side. Hopefully he gets into form and comes back but only when he is well and truely in form.

  18. Good to see OMAC back at Casey. Glad we didn't bring in a tallish defender as the saints are not that tall. I would have kept Stretch and probably dropped Spargo. Stretch needs a decent run in the senior side.

  21. Future Demons The club had 15 potential future stars come along for the day, including: Kynan and Ryder Brown – sons of Nathan Brown (146 games, 1998-2007) Jemma and Paige Rigoni – daughters of Guy Rigoni (107 games, 1998-2005) Noah and Jasmine Yze – son and daughter of Adem Yze (271 games. 1995-2008) Tex Robertson – son of Russell Robertson (228 games, 1997-2009) Logan and Jade Wheatley – son and daughter of Paul Wheatley (135 games, 2000-2009) Tegan Williams - daughter of David Williams (67 games, 1983-1988) Tigga Johnstone – son of Travis Johnstone (160 games, 1998-2007) Tom and Max McDonald – sons of Anthony McDonald (104 games, 1997-2002) Kate O’Dwyer – daughter of Steven O’Dwyer (84 games, 1987-1991) Rylee and Autumn Ward – daughters of Daniel Ward (136 games, 1998-2007) How proud for the mums and dads!

  23. Yep. A big part of that improvement is related to increased fitness. The 9 day break could not have come at a better time. A combination of being able to recover from the last game, having a block of time to build some fitness post recovery, and lewis and jets back a bit fresh means we will be in our best shape fitness wise this year. They are coming of a six day break from what was a taxing, physical game. Huge disadvantage. I'd be jacked off if I was a saints fan. Poor scheduling by the AFL but for once it helps us.

  24. I put this one together a couple seasons back - with several players still current it needs an update if anyone can be bothered. Cripps may have entered the list by now as well. A fair few Brownlows among this crop. The most contested possession across two games (career): Patrick Dangerfield - 48 (2017; in career games 190/191) Clayton Oliver - 46 (2017; in career games 30/31) Josh Kennedy/Nat Fyfe - 46 Chris Judd - 44 Gary Ablett Jr. - 41 Dustin Martin/Jobe Watson - 40 Joel Selwood - 39 Dane Swan - 37 Trent Cotchin - 36

  29. Really think he should have been given another chance. We need some leg speed, instead we bring in 2 slower types. I have no issue with Jetta and Lewis, it is more about who gives way.

  30. Spargo is still chasing Jeffys dust. Spargo is small, but he’s got poor-average pace and doesn’t hit the scoreboard. He’s more of a natural midfielder and isn’t suited to the small forward role. We need Jeff in the team. He’s the most proven goal kicker on our list and offers elite speed.

  31. It has been amazing that the 'professional' umpires so far this season do not 'see' Clarrie doing the best work a footballer could possibly do whilst simultaneously being interfered with and man-handled against the rules for an entire game - or two or three. The number of frees deserved and not awarded is quite staggering, watching the replays and concentrating on just one player - Clarrie. Another season of selective attention and selective inattention by the green snot goblins this year, to meet an AFL dictate?

  32. I hear the Umpires have been told that because St kilda are a run and carry side, they will be given the benefit of the doubt in this game on how far they can run, so be prepared for it. This was one of Max's straight arm games are a NO NO, so be prepared for those free kicks against the big fella as well. If Oliver is ever to get free kicks paid to him this should be the game, just going by the First Four Games that he was being interfered against. ie held, tripped and hit.

  34. Doesn't always happen with absolute standouts but this time it did and I reckon we got overs too Wadda Was going to throw Man City win & +2.5 goals as the 3rd banana but thought twice and was happy to take the 9-1 for the 2pick ... no regrets either mate. Monkey Business does it again ... nearly saluted last Sunday/Monday as well but Augsberg decided to put on a show to thwart our ongoing success!

  38. Wow what a morning of Champions League football! Best game I've seen in this tournament for a long time, almost going back to a 4-4 between Chelsea and Liverpool 10 years ago. As a Reds fan I'm slightly annoyed that City aren't still in the CL and that Spurs didn't 'save' their good result against City for the league but forget all that! It's a stellar performance from a team missing their main marksman and make no mistake this Spurs side plays with a heck of a lot of spirit. The manager is easily one of the best in the business now. Don't usually like other English sides winning the CL but if we can't I'll be backing Tottenham to go all the way for sure.

  43. As discussed in tonight's podcast, on demonwiki.org we've been compiling a list of all the MFC connected players who served in wars as well as the better known list of those who made the ultimate sacrifice. This stretches from the Boer War to the Korean War, and is very much a work in progress so if anyone can shed more light on the service of the players listed below please get in contact via the forum or [email protected] Fortunately the format copies perfectly from the page (http://demonwiki.org/Players+who+served+during+war) to this forum, so here's the list. The * denotes a non-senior player (e.g. from a lower grade or trained with us without playing a game). A particularly interesting story is the Couve brothers, who both trialled in the 1912 pre-season but didn't play a game and were struck down just 15 days apart during the Gallipoli landings.

  44. How do i know that? Because that is how book makers operate. And I have been punter all my adult life (and a chunk of my non adult life). They set a market. The punter with your million responds to that market. If the bet is on the mfc they become even shorter than the bookies opened them. If on the saints their odds shorten. How else could it operate? As an example barely a cent will have been bet on the tigers dees game. No serious punters would punt on tbat game. Way too many variables at this stage, not least injury, weather and how both teams perform this round. The bookies have Tigers as favorite at this stage. We are unlikely to start favorites but if we play well this round and the tigers don't punters will back us and our price will shorten.

  45. Goodwin has played games before although there are examples of other coaches that do it more than him ... I don't read into anything he says on the injury front. Also don't read into training reports from those with rose coloured glasses or deliberately trying to misinform. Doubt Preuss will play and suspect that they want to keep st.kilda guessing about our final team and whether they will need an extra tall in defence... all the smoke and mirrors is a waste of time and supporters get misinformed in the processes

I saw Hamnan, AVB and JKH in Edwins I thought Chandler shone today in the drills I thought the kicking in the windy conditions was really good One frightening bit was Petty, they were doing a defensive spoiling drill involving a couple of bags, McCartney shouted 'crash it' as Petty approached the second bag, he did, he spoiled but then did a complete 360 in the air over the bag, which collapsed underneath him He landed face down but bounced straight up, I think the accompanying laughter from everyone was more nervous relief than anything

  49. The level of intensity and application Essendon showed against us was at least double what they showed against St Kilda. That was little to do with St Kilda being better than us (which was also true), it was more about how Essendon attacked the contest or generally cared about the game. In the first half of their game, Essendon was non-existent. St Kilda were playing a below-VFL level side. They've beaten a developing young side in GC by 1 point, an Essendon side which played the worst half of footy anyone will play this year whilst struggling to hold them off, and they beat Hawthorn by a kick despite the Hawks having at least 6 injuries and only 2 on the bench for a half. If we're talking their 3-1 record alone, I'm not worried in the slightest. It's not their W-L record which is the thing we should be worried about. St Kilda play a style of game which, when they're on, is our achilles heel. They'll use the space on the G, they'll bring pace, and if we leave too much space behind our press then they'll find it easier to score than they have in the opening four rounds. This is not going to be easy for us, but St Kilda is not a good side.
