    12 Long Painful Years Finals - At Last!!

    A very happy day. Not quite the emotion I felt in 1987 as a 17 year old at the Western Oval but I'm thrilled for all the true believers who have maintained the faith over a very long period. I'd like to thank Paul Roos, Bernie Vince and Daniel Cross who made the decision to be a part of the rebuild of this club 5 years ago. The foundations those guys built are the bedrock of what is about to unfold.

    James Harmes take a bow.

    fantastic second half of the season for Harmes.

    My 3 word player analysis V West Coast

    A lot of Tyson's touches today were very effective. He played a very good game despite a couple of stereotypical Dom floaters.

    Demonland Player of the Year - Round 22

    Gawn was wonderful today. By a significant margin was the most influential player on the ground. 6. Gawn 5. Harmes 4. Melksham 3.Brayshaw 2. Tyson 1. Oliver

    Trade HOGAN

    Hogan is a gun and the other 17 clubs would be lining up for him. Unfortunately our style of play is not suited to anyone playing deep forward. He is far from the problem - his dodgy kicking today not withstanding.

    Has Nicholls ever paid us a free?

    I actually thought they were ok today and I'm no Nicholls fan. Can only blame the blokes in pink and blue for todays result.

    POST MATCH DISCUSSION - Round 21

    The biggest disappointment for me is Jones. He continually fails in big games. His pace, decision making and skills were all net negatives for us today and sadly not for the first time. I've read somewhere on here that Vince was dropped because Sexton kicked 5 on him last week. Three of those goals were kicked when he was opposed to Jones on the wing in the first half. Hanneberry took Jones to the cleaners off the wing in the first half. He has been a loyal servant and I greatly admire his contribution to the club but time is rapidly passing him by.

    Demonland Player of the Year - Round 21

    Just got back. Interesting spread of votes. I thought Oliver was great in the second half, Frost had a great first half and did some good stuff in the second. Salem was good all day as was Harmes. Brayshaw solid enough and Tyson was good. I thought Jones was poor with both decision making and skill. Spargo will be good player but he isn't up to it yet; Hunt and Jeffy both pretty average. Gawn is just so dominant it's hard to believe our mids don't make more of it. 6. Harmes 5. Tyson 4. Oliver 3.

  9. Well done Bernie on your 100th for the Red and Blue v Gold Coast next Sunday. He has been a wonderful player since arriving at the club in 2014 with Roos and Crossy. We should all be grateful that he threw his lot in with us and as Roos has pointed out a number of times, he has played a significant role in increasing the professionalism around the club. 2015 B&F and now should he have kids good enough to play in the big league, they'll have a choice between the Crows and the mighty Demons!
