    Let the Yawn Fest Begin

    I feel you Old Dee. I was a passionate S.E. Melbourne Magic fan as a kid. I lost all interest as soon as they merged with North Melbourne. That team (albeit it too came from a merger) had an identity that was just irreplaceable. It was like the rep the Tigers had albeit they were our fierce rivals. The Titans were just soulless which is probably how you feel about United.

    Let the Yawn Fest Begin

    As a mug basketballer (and a fair spud in the realms of mug basketballers at that), my interest in the NBA was piqued by admiration of guys like Charles Barkley, Patrick Ewing and Shaquille O'Neal and my yearning to be able to do what they could. Being a stiff and uncoordinated put paid to those plans pretty quickly but the interest never died.

    2018 Demonland Banner 2.0

    One must always keep up appearances!

    2018 Demonland Banner 2.0

    I wasn't aware that I was worthy of getting onto the Demonland banner (as that's what I look like in real life). Thanks chaps!

    Where does that leave Trump? Does the analogy involve a Russian hotel room in his case?

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Whether or not it is an indicator of future on field form (the only thing that matters) is a different matter but something that was very reassuring in Jesse leaving was the response of his manager. Matt Bain said that they couldn't commend the MFC highly enough in their support of Jesse and that this wouldn't even be happening if we were based in Perth. Compare that to the departures of Scully, Junior, Greeny, Frosty Miller, Beamer and Riv (with both Riv and Beamer taking potshots at people in the club after leaving).

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    I believe Scully was planning on saying that at his presser announcing his arrival at GWS. Rumor is that Josh Mahoney was talked out of releasing a revised version of this statement upon the trade going down

    Delisting, Trade and FA discussion 2018

    If there were a Mario from Doncaster of Demonland, surely it would be Picket.

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Sad, but understandable. I won't hold anything against Jesse for wanting to go home. He has had a pretty [censored] couple of years. It wouldn't have been much fun for him to sit out the finals after working so hard to get there. There are a lot of variables on the table now. The trade works for us so long as the Weed continues to develop and Preuss can drop into the hole that Maxy worked so well.

    The man doesn't eat biscuits. He eats cement direct from the mixer.

    Would we take $cully back?

    In other news, Hawthorn have been rumoured to drop their lucrative Tassie deal to sign sponsorship deals with Chiko Rolls (front of jumper), Big M (back of jumper) and Four n' Twenty pies (shorts). This also comes alongside the rumor of Phat Phil getting the job as Chief Commercial Officer at the Hawks.

    If that does, do big Max proud and direct it at some unsuspecting punter.

    Would we take $cully back?

    I believe JFK took a slug which made him slow. It would be highly doubtful he will get up for next season considering the scope of his injury. Very few have come back from that.

    Would we take $cully back?

    The Saints are now expressing interest in Voldemort. If he was upset at the party atmosphere at Melbourne, I wonder if he has heard of a little thing called the Saints Disco?

    Demonland Podcast Featuring Peter Jackson (17/10)

    Or his cigarettes? And what about any of his movies? I can actually picture his answer and the exact look on his face upon being asked said inane questions. My actual question would be about what would be the best way for us to maintain our upward momentum? Too often we as a club have gotten very self satisfied at this point and proceed to shag everything up.

    Still won't stop me making jokes about him being on the pizz most of the time.

    Did you inherit CS's very expensive desk upon getting the job? What about the whiteboard?

    Farewell Dom Tyson

    Preuss for Tyson isn't even speculative about who wins that. North get a 20 plus possession midfielder and we get a bloke who has barely played. You do the math. If they want that deal to go ahead, shuffling of draft picks will need to come into it (or another club potentially). This isn't Essendon style over rating of our players but simply not wanting to get pantsed.

    The Harley Bennell Thread

    There was a policy that Roosy famously bought to the Swans and tried to implement at Melbourne (due to lack of tenure and players it was hard to implement it fully) that has been credited with bringing a level of success to both. What was it called again? The no doodleheads policy?

    Maybe they could make them Maccas take away bags to increase the appeal to Phat Phil?

    Dylan Shiel

    I wonder if Judy still holds his 'environmental ambassador' role for VISY? Could be a vacancy open for Shiel should he arrive?

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    Maybe it was named after this lady?

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    One semi reassuring thing is that unlike Voldemort, he didn't rock up in an opposition polo 5 minutes after 'touring the facilities'. Though that may be because trade week hasn't officially started.
