    I noted the lad was among best players in a Sydney final last week. Is he a chance to be drafted by the Dees?

    Sober Reflection

    Fellow Demonland lunatics, let us now go quietly into the next few nights, let us cogitate and hope, let us not get carried away with despair or prem rejoicing, let us take what comes with calm and sober equanimity. We have been here before, to have our pulses ruptured in 1987, our guts ripped out in 1988 and 2000. There were false dawns in between - I recall an Anzac Day game against Essendon in 1991 or so, 49 points ahead at three quarter time and getting dumped down the gurgler - and I recall an infamous final against the Crows where we were 50 points behind, then 50 points in front and still got dumped down the trash can. Che sera, sera. If we beat the West Coast let us hold our breath because then we will have to beat either the E Colli Wobblers or Riche Monde and always the umpires. We cannot rely on miracles. We can only rely on the fortitude and nous of our front line troops. Ora Nobis.

    Couldn't agree more. Let's not get too serious, chaps, it is ONLY a game called Australian Rules....

    There is nothing south of my stomach worth seeing.

    I owe it all to Demonland

    I'm 68, man. Fell in love while watching the demons get belted by Collingwood in the 1958 Grand Final at my grandmother's house in North Sunshine. I always barrack for the under dogs. I was at cricket practice in 1964 when Ray Gabelich wobbled into goal and thought we'd succumbed. Big Nellie saved us. Has bin a lonely road ever since.

    GAMEDAY - Semi Final

    I can not bear to watch it live. I've died too many hundreds of times. Just watched the 1990 semi wine. Those Demons were also molto tuffo. Let's go, Demons, give it to them.

    Vanders- What a Gun, Tough Story

    Secret weapon: simple, he emphatically makes his presence felt. His opponents are aware there's danger lurking.

    Vanders- What a Gun, Tough Story

    I regard him as a secret weapon in this campaign. I've always rated him. 100% all the time, no excuses, just endeavour and effort.

    Different players, different size etc. Guys like Weidemann will always take longer...

    Why we hate the Hawks

    I hate Hawthorn for the following reasons: Leigh Matthews, Don Scott, Robert Dipierdomenico. I've always hated brutal thugs. I don''t care how talented they were, the bottom line is they maimed people and in any other sport their actions would be rightfully classified as Assault.

    Are you sure your cucumber sangers aren't tinged with the dreaded Botu's?

    The Luke Dahlhaus Thread

    I could be right, I could be wrong, but it just may be a lunatic you're looking for. Anyway, if Dallhouse was a true German he'd be the size of Nietz, Schwartz and Mueller. Obst, even. I put it to you he's a fraud.
