  1. Millionaire Ex-Demon

    Nice success story for one of our ex-players. Joel McDonald. http://www.news.com.au/sport/sports-life/footy-star-turns-booze-business-into-200m-giant/news-story/ee601d48ad4a4708b70af3b2412c86ce
  2. Does anyone know if they will have a meet the players session? Taking the family on Sunday and it wold be great for my daughters to meet our players?
  3. AFLW: Rd 3 Vs Fremantle in Perth

    Just got home from the match. 1. Kicking goals or lack there of cost us the game. Ladies didn't allow for the wind when having set shots. Lots of wasted opportunities. 2. Our ruckman doesn't tap to players but tot he same spot, Free clued on and just started sharking every tap, esp. that blonde free midfielder. 3.Umpiring was shocking and always at the worst time. They early paid a kicking in danger or head high contact and there was lots with demon's lying ing the ground after the ball departed holding their heads. 4. Overall we were a far better side over the field in terms of skill, but goals is where it counts. Basically if we kicked straight we would have won, but we didn't. Otherwise it was a good day out with my kids to see a demon team play live.

    It reminds of everything of why i can't watch basketball games. end to end scoring with little competition. To play it socially would be okay, thats where the market is overseas. To watch good awful boring. Nothing more than the training drills we do at amateur footy. Lastly how do they make money with advertising to support it, there are no ads during the game time. T20 cricket still get an ad in-between each over to make them tv commercially viable.
  5. Leaked AFL email "asking" the women teams to score more after some low scores in the first round. www.theage.com.au/afl/womens-afl/aflw-clubs-asked-to-use-zones-to-open-up-play-20180207-h0vk6j.html Some of the things were to restrict forwards/backs to their respective zones etc.
  6. Women told to score more

    Isn't it $2 to attend this year, but the money goes to charity?
  7. AFLW: Round 1 vs. GWS

    Good win.
  8. AFLW: Round 1 vs. GWS

    Damn Daisy is good!
  9. AFLW: Round 1 vs. GWS

    Some very average decisions there
  10. AFLW: Round 1 vs. GWS

    Nice, got a breather gap
  11. AFLW: Round 1 vs. GWS

    2 in a row Looking much better in our ball movement
  12. AFLW: Round 1 vs. GWS

    Much better goal, switch and run.
  13. AFLW: Round 1 vs. GWS

    Some horrible kicking giving the Giants an advantage for rebounds. Don't get me started on the 2nd qtr set shots for goals.
  14. Demonland Supercoach 2018 Comp

    I'll go again, "Darkhorse". though hopefully far better than last year as it was a shocker.
  15. Harley Balic is settling in nicely.

    I just remember years back the mummy boy Anthony Rocca, he turned out okay as a footy player. He's home in Melbourne so hopefully those issues are behind him. He was good for my dream team for the 2 games he played last year, he has talent.
  16. David Schwarz

    I remember a comment from when they were deciding to select our next captain between the Oz and Nietz. We know nit got the honour. The comment later was they would follow Nietz (Which they did) but they would die for the Ox on the field. I wonder what that would have done for our culture and how we played in that period?
  17. Millionaire Ex-Demon

    All business need luck or "fluke" to in the right place at the right time, and this does happen to many people, but the success comes from the hard work to build that opportunity into wealth.
  18. Lee poached by Doggies

    Cowan didn't do very well at Free, maybe she wasn't the gun coach once she had real football cubs developing teams? One more game we would have played in the finals, just a crap rd1 game put us behind the 8 ball, rest of the season was continual improvement.
  19. Richmond 2018...are they the Bullogs of 2016

    There is always luck in a premiership...but great sides make their own.
  20. Farewell Jack Watts

    Ilvoe Jack of a clubman and his talent, but he hasn't shown he commitment required of him according to the club. We need players with strong work ethic to go with their talent. I will be interesting what happens with him. Ideally his finally realised how much he needs to commit and knuckles down (Like Dusty), but i doubt it. So he'll be gone.
  21. Jack Trengove wins Casey B & F

    Pointless article as if was fit that preseason and everyone since his journey at our club may also have been far better? or he may have been passed by the current first choice players such as Conca has been done at the tigers.
  22. Jack Trengove wins Casey B & F

    As a young up coming player thats great. But as a 25/26 yr old after being drafted as a teenager its not good for your career.
  23. Tiger flag lessons

    If you look at our successful games this year the intensity the tigers played, we also also played in our best matches. We just need to sustain it for 4 qtrs and the majority of the season. The tigers success is easier draw, lots of luck and right place right opponents in the finals that didn't do their homework on the tiger game plan. Crows did it for a qtr then stopped for some reason? Hopefully we have lots of luck next year...
  24. The Big Dance - Grand Final Day, 2017

    But still a premiership side....
  25. Jack Trengove wins Casey B & F

    Generally any established player that wins your reserves B&F is normally delisted. Simply they are starring in the reserves but not getting a game in the 1st's. Which was Jack's situation. But congratulations to Jack on the parting award.
