    Patton out is a huge bonus. Big pressure on an out of form Lobb, like Watts for us. we didn't seem to like the cold in Hobart last week.....and having arrived in Canberra today I can confirm at 3.10pm the BOM listed the "feels like" temp at -0.1!!!! Yep, bloody freezing up here, colder than Hobart. cmon Dees, time to lift and get some form and momentum back.
  2. GAMEDAY - Round 19

    We should win by 15. So hard to score against wind. It's blowing hard and cold here at ground level. Less handball and more 70m kicks from half back. go dees
  3. AFL Scandal: 2 senior executives resign

    I've worked with Richard Simkiss, pre him joining AFL, and then early days after. Spent a lot of time a time AFL house, but way back 2000-2005. It then was the most blokey environment ever. Literally a private school boys club. This happens across Australia, but when you're earning $300k+ you're held to a different standard, as a start you don't need warning to be sacked. Simply stupid thing to do. i also previously worked at one of the AFLs major sponsors, and we lost one of our Directors in similar fashion after testing his marriage with his secretary. In the end she reported him for use of workplace power, and he was gone. Having known him pretty well he was guilty as. not a good or clever thing to do, I'm just surprised the modern AFL didn't send them on a course and all is ok to continue.....but then knowing Richard Goyder from Coles time it's a different standard. He is very very professsional. In the Fitzpatrick era they'd still be there.

    I've never been a huge fan of JKH, always thought he was too slow for a dynamic forward and too soft for a mid. Then he was aweful earlier this year, I mean aweful. But, he then popped up with 2-3 of the best VFL games ever, huge possessions, tackles, clearances and goals. So I went to Port Melbourne a few weeks back and watched him close. We got smashed that day, but only ever looked likely when JKH went and got it. I was really impressed by his speed, lateral movement and hard ball gets. If he can be half as good he will do more than Stretch has in the last few weeks. like Nibbler last year, perhaps he needed really good VFL form to get some confidence, and confidence can take you a long way. A likely out when Viney and co are back, so for now, good luck young fella.
  5. Port Melbourne v Casey Demons

    A few of the boys, Frost, Nibbler, Stretch, Oliver, harmes and White watching. speed wise JKH, Kent and Smith were the only dangerous looking players today. Kennedy was in and under a bit.....but there was absolutely no outside run. JKH could win a hard ball, take on 3 and due be ready to release but no one streamed past. Disposal was aweful, Port played us like the Swans last night, shut down run. big Spence gave us nothing, frustrated himself by dropping a contested grab 10 metres out in the third, just should have held it. Weed looked ok, attacked the footy and rucked with good elevation late, but I'd leave him at Casey. I would be happy to see JKH and Smith if deemed ready. maybe Kent, at least he chased down a few players today.
  6. The Importance of Jordan Lewis

    I know someone who did quite a lot of leadership work at Melbourne this pre season. He does a lot of this work in sporting team, not just AFL. His advice was back in February if picking a Captain Lewis was miles in front of others and one of the best astute leadership candidates he had ever seen. happy to have him as a Demon.

    From training looks like IN Salem OuT Wagner gawn looks good
  8. Demon Injuries 2017 season

    Great to hear big Max say he is only 4 weeks away from full training as the usual hammy recovery now he has stared running. Could play in 5 weeks perhaps!
  9. Demon Injuries 2017 season

    I spoke with one of the staff behind the coaches box at three qtr time, he said they were waiting scan but could be 4-12 weeks.

    If we had been offered Lewis for Pick 30 odd 3 weeks ago I'd have signed on the spot! It'll get done, doesn't fuss me now which pick. Either way we win.
  11. FA & Trade Whispers

    If we get Lewis, Rockliff and Hibberd and Grimes, M Jones, Dunn depart it would be an unbelievable trade period and once again would be with no leaking from the Club. this occurs I honestly couldn't care if we only finish with picks above 40-50 this year, even next. It's classic successful team trading, win now, deal with the future then. And when the future comes round, do it well again because your successful. We would become odds on for finals, and players like VDB, Wagner, Kent or Salem may find getting a game much harder. seems low risk for huge reward

    Get him. imagine Rd 14 next year, we are 7-6 coming off a tight loss at the G and heading to Sydney to play the swans. It's raining. We must win to stay in the 8. who gets picked from our list for this game before Lewis?
  13. This smells like 1987

    We have momentum, the single greatest asset of any sporting team. Saturday night Port stood no chance because of it, the GC scrappy win coupled with the Hawks effort means we have it in spades. port had it in 2014, ours seems more sustainable, time will tell. Be great to make it, bugger off North.
  14. Max Gawn AA ruckman

    Max has become an icon, cult hero. My young boy made yesterday's Herald Sun picture running with Max with the beard on from an Auskick setup this week. 20 young bearded kids in Demons #11, sensational for the kids. Max was wonderful with them, he has 20 new fantastic fans, even the couple who weren't Dee's fans, plus parents!
  15. Changes vs. Port

    Pretty simple I reckon, we want to win next week. IN HOGAN OUT WEED Pederson was better than Weed, and as good as the kid looked I'd prefer Hogan vs Port, likewise Pederson. No other change unless injury. cheers to Omac for starting to look very good.
