  1. Taking a moment to confirm Redleg's background is law, not medicine. I mean, obviously you're thinking of the remarkably similar treatment for tinnitus.
  2. Hmm, I wonder. Daniel Wells (pick 2), Lynden Dunn (15), James Aish (7), Varcoe (15), Treloar (GWS concession pick, de facto 2), Hoskin-Elliot (4), Adams (13), Grundy (18), Scharenberg (Pick 6), Freeman (10), De Goey (5), Moore (F/S 9), Sidebottom (11), and Pendlebury (5). Top 6 picks - 6. First round picks total - 14 vs Lewis (7), Jones (12), Watts (1), Melksham (10), Trengove (2), Tyson (3), Hogan (mini 2), Salem (9), Brayshaw (3), Petracca (2) Weidemann (9), Oliver (4). Top 6 picks - 7. First Round picks total - 12. HAAA HA HA HA HA. Hey look, it's another way Collingwood can go and eat ---- .
  3. All this, and Carlton in two weeks... Here it comes... heeeere it coooooomes....
  4. Ha. Rohan Connolly may or may not think the Demons can win a premiership, but what is for sure is that he thinks a bit of hype aboutt he Demons right now will get some click-throughs.
  5. Bwa ha, I played with the ladder predictor and had us finishing second on % only, playing the other top 4 teams, Geelong, then Adelaide and finally GWS, to claim the premiership. Obviously. I may have forgotten that sometimes there are losses even if you're going well. It's just been so long since we lost a game, I can't remember.
  6. Now is not the time to externalise our locus of control. We'll play in Darwin, we'll win, and we'll sit solidly in the top 4. Then a few weeks later we'll play in Canberra, to claim top spot. With a quick visit to Tasmania first, for conditioning to the climate, of course.
  7. Anyone else quietly sending good vibes to all three underdogs today? Fremantle beating Geelong puts us in the top 4 instead of the Cats. Carlton beating Richmond puts the Tigers a full game and solid percentage behind us. Gold Coast knocking off St Kilda puts the Saints that little bit further behind in the chase. And to be clear, this is just for amusement and satisfaction. After the last three rounds of proverbial '8 point games' it is quite clear the Demons hold their destiny in their own hands and have a notion of what to do with it. We are, after all, the form team of the competition! HA!
  8. Not since another game against the Eagles, one week and 12 years ago, have I felt this positive about the Demons. The poetry of these last three games, each one against an opponent at the same spot on the ladder, each time winning and moving on one more step. It is all very beautiful.
  9. Less than 100 behind Junior for total tackles, too. Ha! Found a bonus note for those still enjoying the fact that Collingwood have gone backwards every year since 2010. Melbourne have improved their result by at least two wins, in every season since Jones was made acting co-captain. The captain that took a club from 2 wins and 54% to... to where? His worthiness for glory is beyond debate.
  10. Following your example of Dogs defeating North probably ending it for North, I'd reckon there are three other games this round which, combined, pretty much end finals hopes for the four losers. Essendon over Sydney Port over Collingwood Geelong over Fremantle Richmond defeating Carlton would provide the formality of ending the Blues theoretical hopes. Buuuut Carlton's one virtuous tradition is making Richmond fans cry, so we'll wait and see. And if those five games all go against the favourites, we're back in a ridiculous jam, with Collingwood, Sydney, Fremantle, Essendon and Cartlon all on six wins. St Kilda slipping up against Gold Coast would put both of them on 6 wins, too. Ha! In theory, we could have 10 teams sitting on 6 or 7 wins at the end of this round, with just 8 wins pushing a team into top 4, and 5 wins making you bottom 4.
  11. Would we get a player of Brayshaw's potential, with the pick we might get in exchange for him. No. Obviously. His concussion issues would be 'priced' just as harshly by any other club as we might. The best value is in keeping him. Particularly if you're looking for speedy players - speed is one of the few things you can evaluate clearly prior to drafting, and there's no harm in throwing around a few more late picks in search of the next Jayden Hunt. And let's be honest, you can never have too many tough, smart inside midfielders with good vision going inside 50.
  12. AFLx. Or, as we mortals know it, 'having a bit of a kick and a laugh down at the park'. The long-term plan for the AFL is clearly to introduce merchandising and ticketing for every casual kick of the ball. There will a law passed kind of like the free assembly restrictions under martial law. "Nobody is allowed to gather in groups larger than three persons unless first booked through ticketmaster and while wearing appropriate branded products".
  13. Doing it tough, them footballers.
  14. Hibberd notched up 8 clangers and 10 coaches votes.
  15. "Poor old Richmond, again." I think it is the only official club name with punctuation.
