    Oliver doesn't care if you don't like him

    Throughout the match you could hear the umpires repeatedly warning Hawthorn players about making contact with Oliver off the ball. They chose to ignore the warnings and got pinged.

    The SANFL Preliminary Final fiasco

    I cannot for the life of me think of an easier 'open-and-shut case'... but they've completely botched it.

    Finals Tickets

    Not sure if this has been covered yet... Just received my Grand Final barcode int he mail today (Hong Kong). I am Priority 3 for the ballot, however my father and sister are Priority 2. The form says that if people want to sit together, you have to enter the ballot together. Does this mean that people with different priority level cannot sit together, or can we put our barcodes on the same booking and let the computer sort it all out..?

    If we beat the Eagles in the prelim I will ...

    I’ll be having the Qantas app open and my finger hovering over the ‘book flight’ button the whole match.

    Finals Tickets

    It's a great stadium (though the inhabitant aren't ideal). Optus, along with the new Adelaide Oval seem to be great places for football and spectators. Puts the Docklands Stadium to absolute shame and shows what a bit of creativity can do.

    Very slim I think. I believe Silver gets a go at them if the Golds don’t sell out first.

    The Wizard is on board.

    Hopefully he can do an Open Mike or, even better, a Demonland podcast... would love to hear some of the stories and his thoughts on the club.

    Sam Weideman

    I like that it’s ambiguous enough for us to anoint whoever played better each weekend.

    Sam Weideman

    Weid has finally justified his inclusion at the center of the Demonland banner!

    Sam Weideman

    A standout performance like that in a final is worth ten home and away matches. We could have a pretty special player on our hands here...

    Cut our losses and trade him.

    Nic article about Nev Jetta making his finals debut... only, that’s not Neville Jetta.

    Open Mike with Mark Neeld on Fox Footy (4/9)

    That was just so underwhelming. There was just no substance or depth to any of the questions or answers and I don’t think there was anything there that wasn’t already public knowledge. Something that surprised me was that when asked what he’d do differently, he replied he’d investigate, question and challenge the club’s decision to move on senior player at the end of 2011. He often referred to how young the list was that he inherited and lay the blame at the feet of the admin. At the end of 2011, we delisted or traded out: Matthew Warnock Addam Maric McNamara (rookie) and Cameron Johnston (rookie) Where is this mass culling of senior players that he referred to numerous times throughout the interview??? He then claimed that we brought in a significant number of young players for his first year, but in fact we brought in: Mitch Clark (mature) James Magner (mature) James Sellar (mature) Leigh Williams (mature) He claimed that he went for all out youth and knew it would be a long, slow rebuild as a consequence, but that does nothing to explain the following preseason bringing in: Rodan Byrnes Dawes Pedersen Gillies.

    The Braydon Preuss Thread

    I simply cannot get my head around this one. I thought, in the limited times I've seen him play, that he has a lot of potential as a full time ruckman. This makes me wonder why he's not being hotly pursued by many clubs, why Nth is letting him slip away with Goldy in his twilight years, and why a ruck, who could be playing consistent AFL games next year, would come to a club where he is guaranteed to be second fiddle to the best ruck in the league... The only answer I can come up with is that I, and many other fans, have significantly overestimated his ability and potential output.

    McLardy: Dee-surgence started with Stynes

    I think there’s nothing to gain from looking back at this and definitely nothing to be gained from trying to rewrite history or putting on too thick a shade of rose-coloured-glasses. 2008-13 was two steps forward, seven steps back. We were a broken shell is a club inside and out when PJ and Roos came in.

    Don't Believe In Never

    Loved it! Today the nerves started kicking in thinking about Friday... not sure I could watch a grand final...

    The Cory Machaya thread

    Haven't heard a lot about him this season... Was today a huge surprise or is it something that he's been showing/building towards through the year?

    The Michael Barlow Thread

    I think we’re at a stage in our list build that we can look towards developing young / untried players as our depth. We’re past needing to bring in experienced older player who would not immediately improve our best 22.

    Open Training - Saturday, 1st September, 2018

    Hopefully his son inherits his fathers determination and his mother’s skills.
