In 2004 his career took a step forward, playing all 25 games and enjoying good form whilst also playing a major role in the club's 2004 premiership win.

In 2006 Cassisi missed seven games due to injury, but found just enough form in his limited game time to uphold his reputation as one of the most important players at the club. However, at season's end he lost his spot as vice captainn.

Leadership (2007–2008)

After another excellent season in 2007, Cassisi accepted a three-year deal with the club, ensuring that he would stay with Port until 2010. He also was reinstated as Vice Captain. In 2008 he undoubtedly played his best season, averaging 22.7 possessions and 6.3 tackles per game and finishing second in the club best and fairest (career best). He also found himself being handed the club captaincy from Warren Tredrea, who stepped down.

Captaincy (2009–2012)

In 2009, Cassisi was named captain of the club succeeding Warren Tredrea and replacing the #25 guernsey he had worn since debut. He finished fourth in the John Cahill Medal in 2009.

2013-2014

Before the 2013 season, Cassisi handed the captaincy to Travis Boak and returned to the number #25 guernsey.

Cassisi officially retired from the AFL on July 17, 2014 and played his final game in a three-point win against Melbourne in round 18.
