  1. Sponsorship Problem?

    Never in doubt. Well done to PJ and co. for getting it done. No, but you might get 50% off a trip to Switzerland instead!
  2. Revenge is a dish best served cold ....Wish list for season 2018

    I know. As if we'll beat Norf.
  3. Revenge is a dish best served cold ....Wish list for season 2018

    I'd back us in to beat the Cats. Norf, though? They could field a team of 10 year old's and they would still be a chance to roll us.

    Hopefully 2 outta 3 won't be bad then my friend.
  5. Fenceology Predicts the ladder

    Picket's glass has been empty for a long time.
  6. Family Day 2018 Returns to the 'G (Sunday 4/3)

    Great move by the club. We were outgrowing Luna Park and being able to have it back at the 'G can only be a good thing!

    It's now or never, really. The way our list has been built and developed over the last 4 years suggests that finals is the next step. Granted, it should have been what happened last year but we missed the boat and I'm in no doubt that the players will be using that as a driving force for this year - they won't want to go through that ever again. I know some will demand more than just finals, and that's okay too, but I think breaking our finals drought and putting to bed further demons (pardon the pun) from our past (that some of our supporter base still can't let go of) will play a massive role in the success we can enjoy in the years to come.

    You're kidding yourself DA. We could be 10 goals up and the usuals will still find something to complain about. My wishlist is simple - finals. Anything less and it's a failed season.
  9. Preseason Training Week commencing - 15/01/18

    This is a 'negative for negative's sake' sort of post. George didn't say he was going to be a superstar. He simple passed on his opinion from training that he was impressed with Spargo's ability to kick off both feet and that, in the future, this could make him a viable option in the midfield and we need to see how he develops. There's nothing over the top about that, nor did he say he looked like a star. Some people on here can't see anything in a positive light anymore. It's such a shame.
  10. Great post @dazzledavey36! The thing that excites me the most about the club moving forward is the quality of people we are getting in. Of course football talent and ability comes first, but we seem to have not only drafted players who have that in spades, but also guys who bring so much leadership and maturity to the table as well. They are level headed blokes who will train professionally and uphold the high standards that we expect of our playing group. It's exciting to see!

    Oh no! They'll be sledged! Whatever will they do? Give me a break.
  12. Preseason Training Week commencing - 15/01/18

    Stating that your opinion is an obvious one is not saying you can't have it.
  13. Preseason Training Week commencing - 15/01/18

    You're stating the bleeding obvious, OD. If he is a player of average ability then he'll struggle, even more so if he's short. That's not news to anyone. However, from all reports (not just training, reports on him coming up to the draft) he is the complete opposite to a Ben Kennedy which is why I think he may end up being a shrewd choice. We want competitors and players with ability and he seems to have it in spades, even if that's going on limited exposure.
  14. Preseason Training Week commencing - 15/01/18

    While I don't think he'll get much opportunity this year due to our improved depth, I feel as though Spargo is going to be a very shrewd selection by our recruiting team. What he lacks in height he makes up for in skills and intent and that can take him a long way.
  15. Gawn on SEN 16/11

    You're the first person in Demonland history to say that. It's not a good thing.
  16. Gawn on SEN 16/11

    I don't know why you support the club anymore. You seem to hate everything about it and have done for a long time.
  17. Gawn on SEN 16/11

    I'm convinced you're a troll now. No supporter of a sound mind would post something like that. You see even a smidge of negativity and you do everything you can to make it as big as possible. It's pathetic.
  18. 2018's 'breakout' player

    Just a beer with dinner my friend! Went down rather well, too. Seriously though, while I see the merit in what you're saying, there can still be players who can surprise us. Oliver is one who showed remarkable improvement from '16 to '17. ANB is another who showed terrific improvement as well. Players still have it in them, even if we don't see it all the time.
  19. 2018's 'breakout' player

    Turn that frown upside down, OD. I see OMac having an AA year, Weid to kick 60 goals by Queen's Birthday and for Clarry to hit Joel Selwood in a tackle in Round 1 so hard that his head is buried in the MCG turf.
  20. Ah, the old 'don't read it' answer. Always a popular choice. I'm not forgiving, I'm just sane. I was filthy for weeks, but what's the point of hanging on to it? The players will need to use it as motivation to ensure it doesn't happen again, but they won't be hung on up on it like you are.
  21. If I had a dollar for every time you bring this up, whether it's on topic of not, I'd have close to a million dollars now WYL. We get it, pal. We didn't get the job done at the end of last year when we should've. I've never seen someone hold on to the past like you do.
  22. Nathan Jones...

    Very true! I'd forgotten about that. He doesn't show any ill effects of it, though. He hasn't had any other major injuries to my knowledge (unless it fails me again!) and I think that holds him in good stead.
  23. Nathan Jones...

    I think he'll make it to 300. He prepares diligently and professionally and, touch wood, he hasn't had any major injuries during his career so his body should still be in pretty good nick. If he can add another string to his bow (eg. a half back flank role) then he can potentially prolong his career even further.
  24. Sponsorship Problem?

    You guys need to get out more.
  25. Jack Viney will Return to the Track in January.

    No need to be so positive, poita. It's only January.
