Is he even eligible to play? Havent been across it but isnt he a rookie?
Mid year you can (or could at least) elevate a rookie regardless of LTI.

Listed in bests for Casey v Geelong

Casey match review said:
James Harmes had a day to remember and was picking up the ball in wet conditions as though it were dry. He tried to conjure up some footage for Almost Footy Legends by stepping on the head of a Geelong defender but was stiff as the ball bounced out of his hands as he hit the deck and the umpire called play on.
Might as well give him a run, no travel lag at least.

Got 2 on the LTI (Trengove and Petracca) and could add Pedersen to that. He can be upgraded, we just have to pay $ to upgrade, so there's no point until they definitely want him to play.

Fair enough, may as well have a loot at him for one of Bail or Jones, is he playing better than say a Michie in the 2's

Come now, since when has having a valid opinion ever stopped anyone from giving their two cents worth??
Not only that but it's the bored supporter syndrome.

It wouldn't be the Dees board if we didn't nominate every player at Casey we haven't yet seen regardless of whether they warrant a call up or not.

Get King in there!

But seriously... get Harmes in there.

Hard to appreciate statistics in the VFL when Jordie McKenzie dominates possessions, marks, tackles, inside 50s, rebound 50s and even chips in with a goal or two now and again. How do you work out a frame of reference when a known quantity spud is regularly putting out those numbers?

He was completely underwhelming against North Ballarat but everyone is entitled to the odd shit match. Also some players can make the step up in class and not miss a beat, others can dominate at lower levels but not make the step up a la Jordie.
Might as well have a look, particularly given its against Essendon. He'll thinks he's still playing VFL. I'd much rather see someone who may have a future rather than Bail or Jones.

You mean a sleeve tattoo that's noticeably shitter than any other sleeve tattoo going around? This I have to see!
It's not that the tattoo is so bad, it's that it's totally incompatible with the fact that he looks like a 12-year-old Swedish boy.

I've never seen a Casey match, ever. It makes me feel I have no right to comment on who comes in or out of the team. I bow to the wisdom of the real footy maniacs on the board.
I agree. I am determined to put it right. Next time Casey show up in Port Melb, I am there (barring a couple of horrible family visit schedule issues)
