  1. Preseason Training - Week commencing 20/11/17

    Remember when Harry asked if he could sew his number 8 on sideways so that it became the 'infinity' symbol?
  2. The Scrapping of the Bounce is Imminent

    Yes, there will be multiple serious injuries if the ball is thrown up. FFS. Won't somebody please think of the childen.
  3. Demonstone's Dirty Dozen

    We used to have a bit of fun with these a few years ago on the old Demonology. The answer to each cryptic clue is a Demons player from this century. Please limit yourself to TWO answers so as to give others a chance. The judge (ie. me) has the final say. Have at it cryptic fans.... 1. He was on a standard with Roger. Darren Jolly 2. More suited to another sport. Rohan Bail 3. Classic and/or type of player. David Rodan 4. Second rate Collingwood hack. Angus Brayshaw 5. Smack a head coach or another one? Luke Tapscott 6. Given stern directions to finish up. Jack Grimes 7. Our favourite umpire? Ricky Petterd 8. Weights program proved helpful. Steven Armstrong 9. Matches? Danger! Jack Fitzpatrick 10. Could have been another Rivers? Shannon Byrnes 11. Sounds like he was cool ... deep down. James Sellar 12. It was surprising to hear he was good. Michael Evans
  4. The Scrapping of the Bounce is Imminent

    I think it's a terrible reason if it keeps potentially good umpires out of the game.
  5. The Scrapping of the Bounce is Imminent

    Ours is the only game in the world that requires a match official to execute a difficult skill to begin proceedings. Get rid of it and nobody will even notice the difference.
  6. Demonstone's Dirty Dozen

    No can do, the software won't let me. Have to wait until GOTO has time.
  7. Demonstone's Dirty Dozen

    12. Good 'Evans! That's correct. Thank you linesmen, thank you ballboys and I hope you've had a bit of fun.
  8. Demonstone's Dirty Dozen

    Not Godders ... I've practically given you the answer!
  9. Demonstone's Dirty Dozen

    Good heavens above! Only Q12 to go and we can put this folly to rest and I can get back to what passes for a life.
  10. Demonstone's Dirty Dozen

    6. Jack Grimes correct. Stern = Grim plus directions (East and South) = Grimes. I thought this was a gimme!
  11. Demonstone's Dirty Dozen

    No, no and no again.
  12. Demonstone's Dirty Dozen

    He's done it again! Matches = Fitz (fits) + Patrick (Danger/field). The punctuation is a classic cryptic misdirection. Two left thrillseekers, namely 6 (easy) and 12 (tougher).
  13. Demonstone's Dirty Dozen

    No to both.
  14. Demonstone's Dirty Dozen

    Not Blease. Nothing to do with readheads/matches at all.
  15. Demonstone's Dirty Dozen

    In case you're wondering about Q4, second rate = B (b-grade, b-list, b-movie) + Collingwood hack = Ray Shaw.
  16. Demonstone's Dirty Dozen

    Good get azazael ... 4. Angus Brayshaw
  17. Demonstone's Dirty Dozen

    Still four to go ...
  18. Demonstone's Dirty Dozen

    ET, the clues relate to players' names, not to the type of player they were.
  19. Demonstone's Dirty Dozen

    Numbers 4, 6, 9 and 12.
  20. Demonstone's Dirty Dozen

    Shannon Byrnes (Burns) it is. Four left ... all played within past five years, one of them still on the list.
  21. Demonstone's Dirty Dozen

    Getting a little warmer
  22. Demonstone's Dirty Dozen

    Not Hunter. Think less of the name OF a river, more about another name FOR a river.
  23. Demonstone's Dirty Dozen

    Both incorrect.
  24. Demonstone's Dirty Dozen

    No to both.
  25. Demonstone's Dirty Dozen

    Not Byron.
