    MFC Family Fun Night - 13/2/19 @ 4:30pm

    This is not necessarily a spruik for business, but I happen to have a picture framing business in Fountain Gate shopping centre ( t/a Hang Up) which is next to Bunjil Place, so if anyone wants to drop off framing before attending the pre season launch, I’d be pleased to offer a 25% discount to anyone who mentions ‘Demonland’. ( mods feel free to remove this offer if you deem it inappropriate)

    AFL lookalikes

    I’m not clever enough to be able to bring up the photos but David Neitz and former Victorian and Australian cricketer John Hastings ( pre hair removal )have an uncanny resemblance
  3. Brayshaw - break out season Bugg - papers signed early Fritsch - rose from obscurity Frost - became a lynchpin Garlett - went nowhere quickly Gawn - heart and soul Hannan - some impressive cameos Harmes - our most improved Hibberd - injuries curtailed performance Hogan - was outstanding early Hunt - never got going Jetta - tough and committed Jones - slowing but vital Kennedy Harris - not enough tricks Kent - injuries cruelled season Lever - sadly rarely seen Lewis - love hate relationship O.McDonald - showed impressive development T.McDonald - versatility proved vital Melksham - important forward ingredient Neal-Bullen - a quiet achiever Oliver - dynamic and important Pedersen - thanks for coming Petracca - exciting yet disappointing Petty - only limited opportunity Salem - skills were sublime J.Smith - showed some signs T.Smith - failed to impose Spargo - clever but limited Stretch - injury ruined year Tyson - was rarely valuable vandenBerg - tough but limited Vince - limited by age Viney - the bull returned Wagner - displayed limited skills Weideman - far from convincing
  4. Jones - career worst game Viney - couldn’t impose himself Melksham - the Essendon player Smith - showed some glimpses Hannan - played little part Oliver - always under pressure Weideman - looked a schoolboy Harmes - tried without effect Petracca - a major disappointment Brayshaw -fumbled and stumbled Gawn - had no impact Spargo - little to enthuse Frost - kept at task Hibberd - obviously played injured Jetta - loose and overwhelmed Lewis - nothing to commend O. McDonald - amateur 3 quarters T.McDoald - had no influence Neal- Bullen - was he playing? Salem - succumbed to pressure Tyson - last Demon game vandenBerg - tried but careless

    GAMEDAY - Preliminary Final vs Eagles

    Lewis showing all his finals experience 🤦‍♂️
  7. Viney - was just supreme Jones - great second half T.McDonald - a commanding target Melksham - quiet until last Brayshaw - rarely evaded tagger Spargo - quiet but clever Weideman - regularly provided contests Petracca - genius and villain Neal-Bullen - had limited influence Gawn - powerful second half Hannan - was well held vandenBerg - was quieter tonight Harmes - great three quarters Salem - reliable and safe Fritsch - versatility was vital Frost - an important ingredient Hibberd - dashing and inspirational Jetta - grunt and tough Lewis - creative and safe O.McDonald - imbues great confidence Oliver - great despite tag Tyson - excellent last quarter

    MFC - the original owner of the MCG

    In those days there was a massive banner affixed to the exterior edge of the ‘outer’ stand , now called the Southern Stand , and in the vivid colours of red and navy blue it read: FOREVER FORWARD DASHING DEMONS , THE GREATEST EVER EXPONENTS OF PERFECTION FOOTBALL. Then, from recollection ,there were some words about how the MCG was ours❤️ It was a huge and imposing banner that adorned OUR ground and we were proud and unforgiving landlords💪

    Dom Tyson - what's wrong?

    Yes he often IS prolific and racks up significant possession numbers, but the next part of the process leaves a lot to be desired

    Dom Tyson - what's wrong?

    Tyson - prolific but wasteful
  11. yours truly and some members of my family appear in a double page spread in the HeraldSun this morning...prolific but wasteful 😜

    YOU can talk👹

    I owe it all to Demonland

    So is that good or bad? it makes for an interesting sociological experiment

    I owe it all to Demonland

    Sorry to disappoint you.. that’s what a lifetime of AFL suffering does to you, but the photo that appeared in the paper was a little more complimentary , and I AM 65

    I owe it all to Demonland

    Just about my lifelong struggle following actively since 1965 and how my kids have named various pets after former players

    Training - Tuesday 11th September, 2018

    Just reported on SEN thatHibberd is doubtful for Friday’s game with a knee injury🤦‍♂️
  20. Jones - led by example Viney - made them cry Weideman - may have arrived Neal- Bullen - tough and uncompromising T.McDonald - great first half Harmes - loved his application Gawn - imposed when necessary Hannan - one important goal Melksham - great forward pressure Salem - was all class Petracca - had limited involvement Tyson - tried and failed Brayshaw - courageous and dynamic Fritsch - was rarely sighted Frost - made a difference Hibberd - dynamic when needed Jetta - limited by injury Lewis - experience was significant O.McDonald - reliable and safe Oliver - a dynamic presence Spargo - tired and overawed vandenBerg - keep it simple
  21. Jones - always in control Jetta - was rarely required Frost - confidence is everything Salem - precise and creative O. McDonald - looked a star Hibbert - loving his aggression Kennedy-Harris - tackling was impressive Oliver - classy and important Gawn - dominated all game Harmes - tough and dynamic Brayshaw - prolific and brave T. McDonald - great first quarter Petracca - always looked likely Kent - can’t take trick Tyson - will be missed Neal-Bullen - kept popping up vandenBerg - a total revelation Weidemann - was almost important Spargo - definitely showing signs Melksham - always looked dangerous Fritsch - was rarely sighted Lewis - perfect general’s game
  22. I’ve watched the replay 3 times and still can’t comprehend how we were awarded frees, or at least not penalized for many blatant errors, despite the howls of abuse throughout the game from an overwhelmingly anti Melbourne crowd. The non payment of a free kick against O.Mac ,when he took on the tackler by dropping his head into an oncoming chest, was just one of many mind boggling decisions surprisingly in our favour. In my conspiracy theory, the AFL contrived a feel good story ending

    Was the win against West Coast rigged?

    Wow, I’m glad there are mods and rules in place to control such personal vindictiveness

    Was the win against West Coast rigged?

    For all those who are outraged by my personal opinion, I hereby resign from this thread , and thank you for revealing the error of my ways, particularly drysdale demon who’s outed me as a closet Collingwood supporter
