  1. Will Jack Watts make us pay thread?

    We are. A small part of his salary. anything else, I don’t give a stuff about. He is no longer a Melbourne player, he is a past player.
  2. Nathan Jones calf injury

    Photos beg to differ. Seemed to be running well, and not yet even due back! pic by Demonpk
  3. Preseason Training - Week commencing 13/11/17

    When guys like Watts TMac and others are considered reasonable alternatives in the ruck, and teams like the Doggies hardly fielded a real one, I think this is a great move by the club and max. If he can be even more mobile, take really solid grabs and act as the cutout for kick ins etc, swing forward and kick a few, and generally be fitter and more agile, I think it really adds to the team. The slow, lumbering ruck is almost being made redundant. This is also where King and Flippers come in.

    I don’t want them to come back early so a few sycophants can say ‘wow, these guys are committed’. The club has agreed leave for 1-4 year players, and longer break for older players. I don’t want kool aid drinkers. I would suggest that if they don’t come back when they are due, we have a problem. Until then, nothing to see here...

    There is also a workplace EBA. There can be no pressure on any of them to come back early. I’m sure they have plans for the off season for what they should do, and it is not reasonable to ask people to come back from their leave early for how it looks. They should take their appropriate leave, just as you would expect your boss to offer you. Then come back and get to work, as they are paid for.

    Time in season cannot be dedicated to building size. Playing, recovering, maintaining, etc is different to spending significant time and energy working on developing size and bulk. Would expect the off season to be when these guys can accelerate their mass building

    Doesn't want to get ahead of himself...
  8. Great for Jack, can’t see the sense for Port. Is he back up for Rocky? Do they want him for leadership? we know he is a great bloke and a smart footballer, but he was off the pace of AFL in the games he played this year for Melb. I think he will dominate the SANFL, but will be found out if selected for Port. Ports strategy is difficult to understand, with their outs and ins. Have brought in 4 players with specific question marks- they must believe that Kochie’s Kool Aid fixes all. 2018 will be an interesting year for this team.
  9. Jeffy and Dion training and boxing

    Dion's new nickname then - Warwick. Had a few hits...
  10. The 2018 Fixture Thread

    Now you have spoiled it for me. (I will be at most of them, anyway, so no biggie for me)
  11. The 2018 Fixture Thread

    Better than only being on Foxtel, at least we gete some FTA numbers for the sponsors...
  12. The 2018 Fixture Thread

    Sunday afternoons at 3:20 are usually the televised Sunday game on 7. We may get more coverage than many here expect.
  13. Max Gawn Contract Extension

    Such big news, didn’t make the Age...
  14. Viney's Foot

    Soon enough he will be 'training the house down'..... We have had no news out of the club except that he and TMac will have a delayed start. It is a great question - do we know anything more? Nate Jones is out running - are there any instagram posts or anything about what Viney is up to? BTW, I reckon a few posters should sign off from Demonland for a few weeks. Honestly, every thread is full of how bad everything is, how poorly we manage the players, how underwhelming our coaching staff is, how player X is a spud, how we mishandled Watts exit, how we paid too much for Lever... Did I miss anything?? Fhark me! Sure we had a crap end to the year. But time for some of you to let go of your little hobby horses and engage in the damned conversation at hand. (I suppose this is my hobby horse!)

    I [censored] love this bloke.
