    Hey Guzzie, Do Hobart Demon supporters hang out at any pubs to watch the MFC games? I am in Hobart Saturday night with work and wondered where I could go? As a back up I will have the trusty bottle of red in my bag so I have company as I scream at the TV in my hotel room! PS - Sorry to alarm demonlanders with the heading of the post but was not sure how to contact a member directly!

    Post Match Discussion - Round 14

    Compared to Queens birthday we were not disgraced yesterday. It took the first 3 games to get a cohesive style going. It just so happened to that we lost Lever just as we came up against top 8 teams. Once Lever went down so did our top 4 chances. He is a massive out. That’s why we gave so much away to get him. We don’t have the player to cover for him. Hence I doubt we can kick those big scores now because we will leek goals out back. That is the reality. Look at West Coast without their 2 key forwards. As supporters we need to deal with it. As the coaches have opportunities to learn other ways to win. Keep learning more opportunities. The positive is that we can adapt & practise new setups that we can use mid game later on The TMac revelation occurred through adversity. Go Dees! PS IMHGHFO - (In My Humble Glass Half Full Opinion)

    Run home to Finals - 2018

    The wrist slashing is amazing and unfortunately predictable on Demonlogy. Lost Lever = massive team balance issues. Our hardness yesterday especially the first Qtr I have not seen in a MFC team for long time if not ever. Viney getting back to his best, Melksham working through being tagged, Tyson in didn’t work so let’s now try Garlett in? Other opportunities? Port will not have so many things fall there way at the MCG.

    Changes v Port

    Agree with the consensus on Pedo. Weeds and Tim Smith share that role now depending on form. Time to see how Garlett & Tyson fit into this new structure. Petty in for taller Forward line like West Coast The hope was fantastic while it lasted but we still need a Gaff or similar and are still building as a team so get more time and games into our youth.

    Post Match Discussion - Round 12

    Agree, but better to learn now than in the finals. Although the backline needs to settle we need to bring in a week by week 'horses for courses' defender. Pedersen could play back and give us versatility but I am sure Petty could have done something down back today. 6 good wins but also time for other teams to work us out (Bulldogs & Tigers so lucky to have timed their runs at finals time). Against these faster teams with better outside run do we include an extra Mid(Tyson) for small forward(Hannan)?

    GAMEDAY - Round 10

    We only have had our real game going since the Bombers match. Once TMac arrived our true game style was cemented. The so called 'easy' opponents of the past 3 weeks has been invaluable & greatly assisted us in further fine tuning the way we play and what each role required. Fabulous test today, full of opportunities for all to continue this journey up the ladder, Go Dee's!

    Demons on Masterchef (16/5/18)

    In addition, a large percentage of those 910k viewers would be from a non footy demographic. Hence exposing the club to new potential members & sponsors especially if/when they looked at the ladder and observed we were ‘up there’.

    Casey Demons v Box Hill Hawks - Round 6

    Thank you Druken’, Demonland and Vogon. Your balanced and informative summaries of the Casey Demons match is social media at its best and one of the main reason many of us log in. This current batch of players in our AFL squad has for the last 10 quarters truly played the game style that was practiced all summer. Once the team actually plays this way further ongoing tweaks can to made to game style, player behavior & strengths suitability etc Jade Rawlings’ move to Casey Coach has been one of the many masterstrokes and calculated gambles that need to go your way on the road to ultimate success. Being on the Senior coaching panel for a few years he has been able to replicate the AFL team game plan, as challenging as that it considering the player movement in & out of the Casey team week by week. The Casey Demons yesterday continued the true game style exhibited from the ‘seniors’. The win gets further buy in from all players (not only the top 22 potentials) as they can see in practice both what & how to play in this style = easier to coach, show examples/outcomes for all involved. Now we are truly building!

    Changes vs Gold Coast

    No not the same unit. I know Dr. David Bolzonello from Alphington sports medicine clinic joined the MFC this year. The crew at Alphington have been working with elite athletes/olympians for the 25 years I have been going. He takes no [censored] and will not be forced into anything. IMHO he was the one that said Viney/Tmac would not play for 6-8 weeks!

    Post Match Discussion - Round 7

    One of the many positives of the past few weeks included the fact that 4 guys(Hannan, Fritsch, Spargo Melks) who collectively kicked 10 goals last week, all up only kicked 1 this week but we still won by more than 6 goals! The Return of Tommy Mac and the experiment/experiencing with Weeds is obviously working. Together with the rtn of the old Gus & natural footballers in Spargo & Fritsch adding new found depth, the Group is evolving into a new beast! Go Dees

    So true! This also gives us the flexibility to ease Viney back in without unrealistic expectations for someone returning from a career threatening injury.

Always keeping me composed and helped me if I ever needed anything today," he said (Charlie Spargo) Also great Leadership from Jake. The defensive forward role suits him big time!
