  1. Preseason Training Week commencing - 15/01/18

    G'day all! First post in a while but I was around the vicinity this morning before work and dropped into training for the first 40 minutes or so. It's the first time I've managed to get a session this pre-season, so I was excited to see how the new recruits look in red and blue. I arrived at Gosch's at the same time as the lads and was surprised with their first warm up exercise. It appeared to be a variation of musical chairs where the players would run in a circle and would be required to place themselves in groups of 5-6 at certain points. Those left out would then be required to do a series of push-ups. Plenty of laughter out there. Joel Smith running laps. It'll be interesting to see if he factors in our best 22 this season. Vaned berg, Weideman, McKenna and Smith were those who I noticed in rehab. Standard stretches, jogging, and some handball activities followed. A late Tom McDonald then arrives and joins the boys to the shouts of "Tommy!" Players then continue their warm up with a standard kicking drill. Nothing too flash, but I'm delighted to see that one of the players closest to me is Jake Lever. Like nearly every other player in the history of game, I'm stunned to observe how good he looks in the Demon colours. Although he lacks a bit of muscle when compared to Sam Frost (who looks like he could snap Bailey Fritsch in half with a snap of his fingers) who happened to be standing next to him, I've read plenty of encouraging reports that he's been quite vocal on the track. Some sprinting exercises then followed. Our 2km champions Bugg, ANB and T.Mac all leading the way. No surprises here. Also, just saw the number 4 guernsey being worn by James Harmes. That one is still taking some getting used to. Unfortunately, that was about all I was able to see before I had to leave. Hopefully someone was able to pick up a few more details I'll try and come down again of the boys are training later in the week.
  2. The 2018 Fixture Thread

    Thrilled with a home game against the Cats in round 1. Its a brilliant test for us and there's sure to be a massive crowd which will be fantastic exposure for the club. Hopefully there's also a couple Friday night games in store for us.
  3. 2017 Player Reviews: # 25 Tom McDonald

    Agreed. TMac played arguably the best football of his career this year while in that key forward role. I was stunned to find that Tom only just turned 25 last month. It honestly feels like he's been with us for a lot longer.
  4. Jack Petruccelle

    We're in real need of another new Jack following the great 'Jack purge' between 2015 and 2017. Grimes, Fitzpatrick, Trengove and now Watts We desperately lack depth in this area.
  5. I noticed how Jako mentioned he was a fan of the podcast and still a big fan of the Dees. Righto, time to confess: Which one of us Demonlanders is actually Jako?
  6. Was just on Jako's Wikipedia page to check some of his statistics. Kudos to the listener who has already edited his page to mention that he's appeared on the podcast.
  7. Brilliant interview guys. Like many other Demonlanders, I listened to the full interview and hung onto every word Jako had to say. Not that I was expecting him to be a dull individual, but it honestly surprised me how insightful, humble and articulate he was. In all serious guys, I don't know how you organised an interview with the player many established journalists and media personalities have been trying to secure for the better part of 20 years but you need to be commended for doing so. Still on a spiritual high from the whole experience. "Once a Demon, always a Demon" Goosebumps...
  8. Trade rumours

    I'm looking forward to that Victorian midfielder joining us in the next 40 minutes!
  9. Trade rumours

    Matthew Lobbe to Carlton for pick 95. Absolute bargain for Carlton if he can get back to his best.
  10. Sam Gibson

    Even though it wasn't with us, I'm happy Gibson was given another opportunity. I listened to an interview with him on Trade Radio and he came across as a very honest and intellectual person. I hope he plays 22 games with the Crows next year just to make North's 2018 even more miserable.
  11. Farewell Colin Garland

    Cheers Col! I'll never forget the night you turned into Wayne Carey and single handedly destroyed the Bombers back in 2012 to break Mark Neelds coaching duck. Wowzers. With Watts and Garland now gone, I believe the only homegrown Demons remaining on our list from pre 2010 are Jones and Jetta. What a list turnaround it's been since the Roos era.
  12. Hearing pick 66 should be what brings Balic to Melbourne.
  13. Crozier (who's been a handy player for Freo) was just traded to the Dogs for pick 40. Surely Fremantle can't justify demanding anything before that for Balic?
  14. Josh Schache

    I just watched some highlights of Schache on YouTube. The kid can play. He's a lovely mark and a very accurate set shot. I would not be upset if we made a few calls here, especially with the potential departure of Watts and Weideman still developing. Considering no one seems likely to give up a first round pick for him, an early second round pick could get it done.
