    GAMEDAY - Round 18

    This has shades of the West Coast game last year where we traveled to Perth without Jones, Watts, Hogan. We all know what happened that night. There's no reason we can't replicate the effort at the Cattery without Viney, Hibberd and Lever. Dees by 9 points.

    Its been mentioned on the Demonland socials, but congratulations on 50 games to Gus Brayshaw! All of Salem, Harmes, Petracca, OMac, Oliver, ANB and now Gussy have passed 50 games this year. Not a bad group. EDIT: On a similar note, Melksham plays his 150th game this weekend. Congrats Milkshake!

    Run home to Finals - 2018

    Just heard that Marcus Bontempelli won't play this weekend. Apparently had his appendix removed.

    2017 Player Reviews: # 22 Aaron vandenBerg

    Watched the second half of the Casey game yesterday. Honestly could not believe that this was Vanders' first hit out in nearly two years. He was fantastic to watch.

    254th this week. Played his 250th against the Dogs. We've since played Collingwood, Port and the Bulldogs.

    On a side, side note, congratulations to Clayton Oliver who lines up for his 50th game this weekend!

    On a side note, Nathan Jones plays his 254th game for the Demons this weekend and goes level with Brad Green on number six on the list of most games played for the club.

    Great changes. Amazing how much better the side looks with some pace! Petty seems like a great young player but seemed completely out of his depth last weekend. Frost should've been included straight after Lever tore his ACL. While his disposal leans more towards the 'tear your hair out' kind, he provides us with some much needed dash out of our defensive 50. Can take a mark as well. Garlett and Spargo in the same side is something I've wanted to see for a while. Hopefully Jeffy can re-consolidate his position in the 22. He may have the occasional stinker, but our forward line is far more dangerous when he's at the crumb of the ball. He's won a fair few games off his boot over the last few years. Also very pleased for Billy Stretch. I think he's unfairly judged by many supporters. He's still very young and I've seen him do some very clever things in the senior side. I'm hoping he's given a few weeks to show his ability.

    Open Training - Friday 8th June, 2018

    I believe Gus was in rehab when I arrived. Was participating in main group drills by the time I left. Don't remember him being too hindered by anything.

    Open Training - Friday 8th June, 2018

    Was still a great crowd considering the weather. Sausage sizzle and hot coffee easily best afield in these conditions - Cam Pederson looked in ripping touch. Beat TMac at least three times in some one on one drills. Looks a lock for Monday. - Joel Smith did some nice things although disposal was a tad ordinary at times. Don't mind the coaching group backing him in for the Lever role as I think he has more upside than Frost. - Mitch Hannan had his knee strapped and rotated between rehab and the main group. Didn't seemed too restricted by his injury. Obviously, expect Jeff Garlett to get the call up should he not feel 100% for QB. Speaking of Jeffy, seemed to be doing most things right aside from a bullet pass that landed directly in the hands of the opposition player (Charlie Spargo) during some match simulation. Sort of sums up Jeff's season so far - Kent looks very close to rejoining full training. Participated in a couple drills with the main group. - Jetta was Jetta. Good lord, he is a marvel to watch in one on one drills. Never gets beaten, even when he was matched up against the likes of Hogan and McDonald. Always broke even at the bare minimum. Happy to fill in any blanks if anyone has any questions.

    AFL.com.au Mid Season AA Team

    Pending on Darling's form/fitness in the second half of the season, I think TMac is a strong case to make the final side based on his current form. Hibberd made the AA squad last year after missing the first 4 or 5 games so McDonald is still every bit as likely. Also, Dusty getting the nod over a Cripps or Coniglio is laughable.

    Jesse's Goal Not Worthy?

    Speaking of Jesse, when was the last time a Demon kicked back to back bags of five? EDIT: Just had a look, best I could find was Russell Robertson back in 2005.

    We've won the same amount of games over the last six weeks than we did during the entirety of the 2012 and 2013 combined. Quite a way we've come.
