    Prediction for Port. Jack Watts to be in top 5 in B&F this year.

    Sorry CF. I might be wrong but I can’t think of too many big men (194+) in our squad that are better than him “below their knees”.

    King: Oliver better than Cripps & Bont

    I was going to ask the question about Oliver and his shoulders last year and how they affected him. Don't remember hearing anything about him having shoulder problems at all (other than him always having them taped). Maybe i missed something. As for the article, i have always loathed these comparisons. They hopefully mean nothing to the player himself, and they are really just to fill out media quotas. Having said that, I've seen Oliver do things that I've never seen another do. I think we do have someone special here. But a special player without the backing and support of teammates doesn't mean a lot from a team performance basis. Look at Cripps and Carlton, the Bont and WB. We are a great side with Oliver in it. Without him we are still a great side, because we have the support. Carlton and WB's are not.

    Richmond membership banner ads on Demonland

    I just subscribed, and I asked Admin how many Demonlanders there were and how many were subscribers. I was surprised by the response: "There are over 5,000 registered members of Demonland. About 280 are subscribers. These numbers don't take into account guests who visit the site but have never signed up. More guests are reading the site at any one time than members reading the site." It would be nice for the percentage of subscribers to increase to support the running of this site. I mean we all enjoy it, but only about 5% are financially supporting it. With a lifetime membership of only $60, that, for some of the younger ones on here will work out to be about $1 a year. Where else can you get such great entertainment for just $1 a year?

    Remove the Ads with a Demonland Subscription

    Hi Andrew - this site is a great initiative, happy to help keep it going. By the way, how many Demonlanders are there, and how many are actually subscribers?

    Round 1 team 2019

    For someone who has come from a basketball background and who has only played 11 AFL games, i think Joel Smith is doing extremely well. Both his skill level and his "footy smarts" should come with more experience. If these elements come along to the same level as his defensive skills and his athleticism, I think he could end up a gun mid field player one day.

    Round 1 team 2019

    Nice piece of work ProDee. The only selection I'd question at this early stage is Hunt - as much as I'd like for him to be there, he may have to earn his spot again. Joel Smith i think will get a gig before him initially - not sure what position though.

    AFLX Revamped

    On the basis of an earlier post, I'd like to see the MFC make a stand and boycott this competition on the basis that one of the teams has been picked solely on the basis of race, while none of the other teams have. In this day and age of inclusion and racial tolerance, we should not be seen to be promoting race as a point of difference. I am really strongly opposed to this concept. If it had been a state of origin basis, as others have said, then ok - it would still be a [censored], but ok.

    AFLX Revamped

    In this enlightened day and age, where “inclusion” and racial tolerance is supposed to be the norm, why is the AFL engineering a competition where one team is solely based on race and none of the other teams are? Either all teams are based on ethnic background, or none are. How do the AFL expect to cut out racial taunts from spectators at games, when it’s the AFL who are promoting race as a point of difference with idiotic competitions like this? Just another example of how poorly run and how out of touch our AFL leaders are.

    Weids ready to grab opportunity with both hands

    While he has a long way to go, what I really admire about the Weid is his willingness to chase, tackle and be a giver rather than a receiver. Has a big big future I think.
