VFL - Round 2 vs Casey @ Casey, 3PM Saturday 2 April 2022

That next level of talent is playing AFL or injured.

Tex, Martin, Perkins, Durham, Cox, Jones.

Reid has just come back. Hobbs is getting better each week and Bryan is going really well for a ruckman of his age.

I’d say Bryan’s doing well for a ruckman of his age. Luke Jackson is doing really well for a ruckman of their age.

I feel a big part of that is the absolute clusterfuckery that is our current VFL program.

DJ had the seconds in good shape in 18/19 when we made it to the prelims. It’s been all downhill from there

Sorry, been working on the VFLW since then. Took a while but I reckon I’m doing alright.

Yeah, he’s doing well, but at the same age Draper was absolutely DOMINATING the VFL, and he’s got a fair way to go.

That’s kind of what I meant - if guys are going to have long and successful AFL careers they need to be significantly better than their VFL peers.

Good point, I’ll give him till round 5 to take 15 contested marks and kick 8 goals, otherwise I’m calling it!

We’re talking McDonagh.

I think the worst part was that he was happy to do this fake tough guy nonsense, but refused to do the real tough stuff during the game. Let’s hope he learns to reverse that asap.

I was there…he defs steps back from the footy when bigger contact is coming

When they put the group together in March its not going anywhere. Hopefully they can hold these guys together for awhile

Geez, you VFL fans are slackers (and hate your captain).

Mind you, with pearlers below like "Casey Demons defeated Essendon for the eighth time in a row” and the top three VFL goal-kickers being ex-Essendon players… yikes.

At least in the past year our women are 3-0 over the currently-top-of-the-ladder Casey women!

Casey Demons 13.13 (91) def Essendon 13.10 (88)
10 Joe Atley (Ess)
= 5+5
6 Oskar Baker (Cas) = 4+2
4 Kade Chandler (Cas) = 4+0
3 Ben Hobbs (Ess) = 3+0 or 2+1
3 Alec Waterman (Ess) = 3+0 or 2+1
3 Mitch White (Cas) = 3+0 or 2+1
1 Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti (Ess) = 1+0
