  1. I would love to say, that training was the best I've seen EVER!!! I would love to say that Angus Young from ACDC TRAINED THE HOUSE DOWN and could be added to our list! I would love to say that the weather was perfect BUT ALAS NONE OF IT WOULD BE TRUE Point number 1 the only players training were the core defence unit. More on that in a minute🤨 Point number 2 Sorry for misleading you, but if Jayden Hunt resplendent with long hair under a school type hat ain't a dead ringer for Angus Young of ACDC Then he's darn close enough to be his twin🤩 Piont 3 Typical Casey we

  2. Picket wasn't the only Demonlander there this morning. Mrs DW , myself and a friend and avid Demons watcher (who doesn't post on here), also attended. I will get the most important news out of the way first. Our friend arrived just after 9am and Maxy was walking the boundary with Langdon . Max spoke to him saying we were there on the wrong day that there was no combined training today. They would be doing only short stints and it was a skills and weights session and that we should have come tomorrow. That being the case I think that indicates there will be some kind of practice match later in

  7. Leon Davis' story is in many ways even more uncomfortable reading. I'm surprised we haven't heard more about it. So his team mates filled out his player profile for him did they? That sounds familiar. When Leon's parents called a meeting with the club about it, Leon, the victim of the racism, was ostracized by the playing group for daring to speak up. No wonder young Indigenous players felt they couldn't say anything or complain about their treatment. There was no support at all, only the possibility of more harm directed towards them. Shameful.

  15. Suddenly I feel like Goodwin's position is safe. Just to clarify the suggestion: As our ruck, we're going to play a 195cm key position defender and occasional forward who has only had four games in his career with more than 20 hitouts, has only played more than 10 games in a season once, and (while giving full credit to his recovery effort) has serious injury history in parts of the body that are particularly vulnerable when playing in ruck. So that a multiple-All-Australian ruckman with super fitness and field positioning awareness for around-the-ground marking that is frequen

I really hope with the guidance of Wrecker and Jetta there are better support networks for indigenous players and staff and our players are better educated.

  20. Gawn is more valuable back as the intercept tall. He also commands the ball from the kick in. I wouldn't have him ruck forward of centre. Daw could add some flexibility in a role with max and dogga.

  21. I'm pretty certain that Saty (I assume that's who you are referring to), doesn't drive a car, but apart from that, given the amount of flack he cops from others on this site, I can't say I'd blame him if he had retired his keyboard... I noticed in another topic on this board today, that he even comes under fire from certain posters for his non-footy related tweets. People really should give it a rest!

  22. Cheers for the reports guys! Am starting to get excited as the season edges closer! Keen to see Rosman play. Sounds like he has some real X factor. Obviously he will take time but looks an athlete! Bring on the season!!

  30. Q: Why is Melksham valued? A: 8th highest goal assists at MFC since 1965 Top 20 marks inside 50 for MFC since 1965 4th highest goal kicker on current list This from 71 games in R&B to date.

  33. I'm starting to get a bad feeling about this season. We've had Viney, Brayshaw and Oliver all missing large chunks of the pre season. Then unfortunate injuries to Weid and Brown and then poor Kozzie losing his Mum. I'm usually pretty optimistic, but have a feeling it will be another season outside the 8.

  38. Born in the same month as RDB, and were great protagonists. I remember journo Michael Horan writing that as an 11yo the Weid took him to a game when he was captain. Parked the FJ in Johnston St, went into the Yarra Hotel and they both had a steak counter lunch; and 2 pots for the Weid. Then carry the Gladstone bag over to the changing rooms, preliminary to leading the Pies to another stirring home game win. Different days!

  39. Nup...if you want to know why it took Max so long to develop it wasn't only his attitude and injuries. It was the attitude of a dumb coach and footy department that persisted with Spencer in the ruck at Casey whilst trying to make the far better prospect, Max...into a key forward. I remember watching him in the ruck for Casey one day when Spencer was out injured and couldn't for the life of me figure why he wasn't the number one choice ...he blitzed, would we leave him there? no they put him back forward again. It took some serious changes at the club before this changed. Max fl

  42. The AFL has warned in briefings to clubs that even the slightest movement to the left or right from the man on the park will incur an immediate 50m penalty. Umpires now warning that this absurd change will be incredibly difficult to police and the effects either way will have a big influence as 50m penalty may be awarded or missed. Remember when they introduced the pritected zone how over zealous the umps were ? This is likely to be a lot worse.... The Rule 1. Players on the mark will be told to “stand” by the umpires. They can jump straight up but have to la

  45. Salem will never move to the wing. It’s a gut running position that doesn’t suit his game which is elite distribution out of traffic. The aim should be to move him on ball but we need 2 more additions to the half back kicking ranks before we move him not 1. And we need to clear some of the mids out. In the meantime we can hopefully get Salem and some combination of Bowey, Lockhart, Rivers and even Hunt providing rebound. Richmond use the trio of Houli, Short and Baker to constantly countering with pace and skill.

  47. Unfortunately a false dawn. We were beaten by Freo the next week and complete rubbish for the next 10 years before a revival of sorts in 2016-2018. An often missed game 1998 at Princes Park V Carlton round 4 , first game for Nathan Brown who was insanely brave for a skinny 17 year old that day, great comeback and first proof we were a real chance of making finals after the disaster of 97.
