  2. THE BOOK OF MELBON by The Oracle Hello! This is the story about a bunch of nice guys who, at one stage, believed they were destined to do something incredible. When the Demons comfortably beat the Latter Day Saints in the opening round of the 2017 season it was a case of brimming wide toothy smiles from all of the Melbourne players and their supporters. We were in for a great season and it didn't matter that one team member was injured in the early stages of the first game or that one of the better players was reported as a result of a stupid indiscretion. The team was young, happy, healthy and most of all they BELIEVED ... and all was well and good. The Book of Melbon was about to be spread across every corner of the world. In the weeks to follow the team was taken to dark places. More of those smiling players were injured or suspended. The promise of paradise inspired by the historical figure of their long gone ancient coach Norman Smith evaporated into thin air. The team faced its own demons in the guise of an inability to cope with expectation that comes with a team on the rise. They had to find a way to address and overcome their inconsistencies, to find the courage to take control of the situation, to "Man Up". The AFL's Mission Control sent the Demons to Alice Springs in the red centre of the country to convert the locals and to make them love the game of Australian Rules but the population there already had problems of their own. Meanwhile, those smiling young boys from Melbon had to confront another enemy, one that had recently been on a sojourn to another continent where they were battered from pillar to post and were now on a mission of revenge. To their sheer amazement the Demons and their fans discovered the local bookies had installed them as outright favourite to win their forthcoming confrontation with the Gold Coast Suns. Panic immediately set in and the nightmare began once again in the form of the "Spooky Melbon Hell Dream". This incredible saga has a dramatic twist and I'll be back after interval (team selection) to tell the rest of the story ... THE GAME Melbourne v Gold Coast Suns at Traeger Park, Alice Springs Saturday 27 May, 2017 at 4.40pm HEAD TO HEAD Overall - Melbourne 6 wins Gold Coast Suns 3 wins At Traeger Park - Melbourne 0 wins Gold Coast Suns 0 wins Past five matches - Melbourne 3 wins Gold Coast Suns 2 wins The Coaches - Goodwin 0 wins Eade 0 wins MEDIA TV - Fox Footy Channel - Live at 4.30pm RADIO - Triple M SEN ABC ABC Grandstand THE BETTING Melbourne to win - $1.45 Gold Coast Suns to win - $2.75 THE LAST TIME THEY MET Melbourne 9.12.66 defeated Gold Coast Suns 9.10.64 at MCG Round 19, 2016 After handing out a thrashing to the Suns on their home turf earlier in the season, the Demons started as white hot favourite to repeat the dose on the MCG. Predictably, their inconsistency shone through and it was only the heroism of a smiling Jack Watts that saw the team home by a narrow two point margin at the end of the day.

  8. from the article: http://www.melbournefc.com.au/news/2017-05-24/vandenberg-mckenna-suffer-setbacks
  9. The article I linked to has Max 426. Having said that 628 is the new MFCSS 426. Try explaining that sentence to a non-Demonlander.
  10. http://www.melbournefc.com.au/news/2017-05-24/vandenberg-mckenna-suffer-setbacks MFC article talks about vandenBerg having another setback and being at least 8 weeks away.
  11. Reminder that the Demonland Podcast featuring Titus O'Reily airs LIVE Tonight at 8:30pm - http://demonland.com/Podcast
  12. Not well linked. Just polite when asking.
  13. Early in the game I was thinking that it was probably time that Mitch spent a few weeks at Casey but he justified his spot for another few weeks after that performance. His game was reminiscent of his first game against the Saints and I hope we see more of this and less of him going missing.
  14. Congratulations Mitch Hannan on his nomination to the AFL Team of the Week for Round 9. http://www.afl.com.au/news/2017-05-23/team-of-the-week-r9-did-we-get-it-right
  15. It was a close finish and a last gasp victory - remember them?
