    Origins/meanings of Display Names?

    Wanted to reinforce my past, present and future aspirations for the club, players and Dland . I was a slow contributor to Dland having followed for many years

    Merry Christmas Demonlanders

    Christmas seems to be a more extended event these days. The usual excesses no longer able to satisfy an insatiable desire to embrace demon success. And so I return to Demonland where dreams are manufactured and destroyed in every thread. Thanks for contributing to The enjoyment. May we all have the pleasures of our illusions converted into a more tangible result. May we have more training reports, accurate and inaccurate projections and just plain silliness to keep us appropriately diverted and allow us to enjoy the results. If the team is to take us on that successful journey we as supporters must also raise or standards. Coming from a low base I've already completed a PB

    Demons Grand Plan for Yarra Park Training HQ

    Although they may support an AFL plan or a local community plan or any other plan after they are elected

    Sole Captaincy?

    Jones has earned the respect for his position. He must be treated with respect. That includes not being selected if team balance or structure requires. No one should be gifted a game or expect automatic selection, we must have enough depth to allow competition every week. Jones has provided a fine example of dogged determination and resilience, he can continue as co captain and inspiration until he accepts his performance is not matching the requirements. He must be treated with dignity and gratitude and acknowledged for his total journey.

    Without google I am pleased you did the research that confirms the thoughts. Also that you landed in the same ambivalent spot I am trying to avoid. With the same basic premise I am prepared to still think that this might be the year it finally comes together for us.

    Best of 3 Grand Final

    Brilliant concept. IP it. Register the brands. Sit back and collect due rewards. Of course that approach may discourage Gil etc from acting.

    The No T$ No B$ Thread

    I'm busted. As a youthful peasant, with vulgar, loutish tendencies, veering into oafish boorish and ignorant behaviour, my scepticism leading me to atheism, I gathered together with a bunch of heathen brutes to form the Plebians and wrest the Traralgon basketball title from the reigning elites. One of my esteemed number was Bernie Quinlan. Aah those were the days, short term pleasures indeed. I still recount that I played with two browlowmedalists having also played tennis with Kelvin Templeton.

    Goody in the offseason

    Well it seems to me that he should just be offered a continuing contract based on success. If we win the [censored] next year a bonus following years based on continued success or failure. No need to put a time on it. The time will be dependent on review, by both sides. i would like to see it continued for six flags in the next ten years but realise this may be unrealistic.

    Casey Demons: 2019

    Thanks again KC. Hope the Casey have a squad that can go beyond the performance of last years. No disrespect to last years squad which set a pretty high benchmark but improvement is demanded and needed. Your own contribution has always been fantastic and much appreciated

    The No T$ No B$ Thread

    To diverge. On a research trip to WA Beer wine food and tourist infrastructure not Dockers Eagles or Hogans, have just experienced the Albany whaling station. Only recently abandoned and restored as tourist attraction. The harpoonist is the Skipper and was able to despatch the whale with an accurate delivery under what must have been quite arduous conditions. Just made me reflect on the same philosophical metaphor. Difficult to reflect on football draw related issues as the WA media cannot report on any issues outside the overwhelming significance of the Dockers and Eagles. Fascinating

    Must address in pre-season

    A couple of things I mentioned during the season and reinforced during finals. 1. Pressure and intensity must be recognised and countered. Kicking skill is affected by both. Second, third and even fourth efforts in a passage created pressure and must be established as a natural impulse. Shepherding and creating space for a teammate to get balanced when disposing must be developed. 2. Use of the total squad. Select teams to counter opposition and release players for resting when appropriate. Lewis and Jones can be rested to recover when younger bodies can be bought in to get exposure to top level when match up allows. Support and backup for Max seems pretty obvious to keep him at his best particularly against teams with similar ruck strengh or depth Hogan is a real star who has gone through intense personal issues that would divert focus. He is almost always double teamed which shows how opposition regard him. If he is double teamed someone should be free and someone should always be at his feet. Flying against him is wasted effort. Structure with Hogan should be different than when he is not on the field so wider use of the squad must be considered on selection.

    Demonland Thanks for Season 2018

    Fantastic site. I am pleased to recommend it to any supporters I meet as it is not only a great source of information but contains some of the best humour you will find anywhere. Professionally and tirelessly run. I have found it the most reliable system I have ever used. It has been a companion and vital information provider when I have been in remote and overseas locations. When I have attended marches or been able to get a full media cover of the Demons I often struggle to keep up with Demonland but always find it worthwhile. Don't have to contribute often as it is such a transparent array of emotions. Keep up the great work. Happy to maintain membership of the most cost effective communication I have seen.

    Burgo finishing up with the Dees

    Didn't know personally but saw the outcomes of his efforts. Thankless task always done professionally and with genuine emotion and interest of those that I saw. Displayed passion that I hope is real and he can continue his allegiance. Having endured the lows it would be great if he also enjoyed the future highs. wish him well and hope that the time at the Demons has added to his skills experience and helped him progress in work and life.
