    Hell NO... blues and the priority draft pick

    Yep, I agree. Bring back John Elliott!
  2. Ron Burgundy


    Yep - he still adds a lot of value to the club. He might be spending a bit more time at Casey than he may like though.

    Gerard Whately is a Moron

    I quite like him. I do get absolutely sick of his horse commentary though.

    Is Brayshaw more rounded than the Trac?

    Is Brayshaw more rounded than the Trac?

    I reckon Brayshaw would be one of the least likely ‘required’ players to entertain leaving this club. He’ll be a Demon forever. Do I know anyone who’s said this? Nope. No one. But I’ve followed this club for far too long, and I have a fair bit of life experience - so yep, I reckon he’ll stick around. I want to see T Mac’s signature first though. He’s beyond important.

    Is Brayshaw more rounded than the Trac?

    They complement each other. Much like Selwood and Dangerfield. And Cotchin and Martin. In the years to come, that is.

    Lever Quits Social Media

    Rest assured Jumbo, those brave guys who self assuredly sit in their dimly lit home offices, all safe and secure and anonymous, and who draw inspiration from their favourite characters from Full Metal Jacket, would not even say ‘boo’ to Jack Watts in person. Most of us know this to be the case, and I expect most of the players know this as well.

    Which Team can we beat on current Form?

    Nope - I reckon we’ve got them.

    Carlton. And the Bye.

    Charlie Spargo

    He’ll be my favourite player one day.

    The Jack Watts in 2018 Thread

    I wish he was still on the list. I like the narrative around these things, even though I can see why he was traded and those with Aspergers here don’t get the human bits to this stuff. That said, I love Bailey Fritsch.

    Match preview and team selection - Round 3

    Bugg does a lot of gut running, team first, things that unfortunately seem to go unnoticed by many here. If you look at many of the Demons goals from the highlights package, Bugg is either in or near the goal square, or running into space to create another option. Even though it won’t reflect in his stats at the end of the game, I’m sure this doesn’t go unnoticed by the coaches and his team-mates. I personally really like what he brings to the team.

    Pedersen v Weideman this weekend

    Pedo. To be honest, Curnow (but his loyalty now lies elsewhere). We must’ve been close. Surely.

    We might be in trouble this season.

    I think it’s fairly clear that it was a game that we absolutely should’ve won, and, had it lasted another 60 seconds, would’ve won. We were all over them, for very long periods. In this context, I really hate that we dropped the 4 points because, to my mind at least, we actually won that game. In substance, though not form obviously. My view remains that we are still eminently capable of being a top team this year. The Geelong game didn’t change this. To Webber’s initial point though, the curious selections going into the game caused me to raise an eyebrow at the time - and the rumours that have since emerged for some of those omissions eg, Goodwin allegedly omitting Tyson for this game because of his involvement in Training-gate - now actually concern me. I hope this concern, like our non-existent defence in the first half of the game, will be allayed by quarter time against the Lions, and I will merely bemoan the lost opportunity against the Cats having had my confidence restored that we remain a top 4 candidate this year.

    Post Match Discussion - Round 1

    Seriously. Gawn as a senior player and leader of the club cannot be missing simple set shots as important as that. I cannot bloody believe it.

    My 3 word player analysis V Geelong

    Interchange bench - wrong players selected

    Sam Weideman

    Curnow seemed a more obvious choice, but Weidemann seems to be a completely different type of tall forward. I expect his selection was very deliberate. And considered. I absolutely trust our recruitment and development these days, so I reckon he’ll make it. Perhaps not this year though, in the years to come. It’d be interesting to know what they are saying about him internally though.

    Goodwin says Viney & TMac out for 6-8 Weeks

    Bloody hell.

    Kane Cornes tips us to Top the Ladder

    Injuries permitting, we're top 4 this year. We have a really well balanced list with depth. From a top 4 position in September, anything can happen. It's all about momentum. Good onya Kane. Possibly a sensationalist prediction but I'm happy to wear that - it's infinitely better than reading that we'll finish 9th, or last, as has been the case in virtually every other season in living memory.

    Roosy says "It's a good time to be a Dees supporter"

    I love Paul Roos. The turnaround he pulled off is genuinely impressive. This club was on its knees. It was last breath territory. I regard him as one of the most important figures in this club’s history. If we win a flag in the next five or so years, he is immortal.

    The 5 who didn’t pick us, and the 12 (or so) of the other 15 who had us finishing 7th or 8th.

    Herald Sun 2018 Predictions

    We’ll surprise a few of those bozos.
  24. As a debt demolition member, I gave the club a fair bit of dough when they were very poorly managed and (at the time) I thought in danger of extinction. I don’t believe that’s any longer the case. So I feel I have contributed. Financially at least. PJ and Paul Roos should be knighted.
