Qld Demons Social Game Days

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys

This is for all our Brisbane and Gold Coast fans

I plan for this year to be a lot more social for our members and for interstate visitors. I plan to have regular days of watching the games at a local pub/club and this is where you all come in.

I need to find a venue in both Brissie and down here on the coast that we can meet regularly to watch the Dees play. The venue needs to make AFL a prority and show all the AFL games as we dont want to get to the venue and find we cant see it due to it clashing with an NRL game.. urgghh!!

Ideally they will have affordable meals and snacks for those that wish to eat before/during or after our match.

Obviously I cant be at both places at once so will have to alternate between venues and I will need you guys to all try and make an effort and come along and support the team along with us. It's not much fun making the effort to get out of the comfort of your lounge on a cold wiinters day and go along only to find noone else there..

So put your suggestions for a venue in and the most popular ones will be the choices for 2012.

For those outside these areas if you know a great place but noone to watch with, let me know as perhaps there are others close by I can "hook" you up with to watch the games.

Ok start hunting down.. not long now till the first bounce and I would love to have Round 1 v Brissie as the first social event (after NAB cup of course!)

The Pineapple is always good for showing the footy and having decent meals. The Dees have their aftermatch functions there too. I reckon thats central enough for all Brisbane-based supporters!?

Yeah think the Piney will be the Brissie venue.. relatively easy to get to from most places I am told - please, however, let me know of other venues you think might be good options..

I went to watch a couple of matches at the Boundary Hotel in West End. Their sports-related gimmick is "a screen for every code," which means we'd be guaranteed a screen, at least. The screen they usually showed matches on wasn't the biggest in the pub (that screen was for League, of course), but it was a decent size, and there were tables and a bar in front of it. No sound, though... I'm sure we could ask them to turn it up. The food's decent, and pretty cheap. Should be central enough for people to get to, there's public transport close. Parking shouldn't be too much of a problem, provided you don't mind a short walk.

It's a 2 minute walk from the Gabba. Just a little bit further up the road from The Aussie Nash.

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    If there was ever a prime example of a team of players not ready for the new Football season it was Melbourne in the opening round of 2019.   Throughout the field there was just too much evidence of players who haven’t had sufficient pre-season or players who ordinarily wouldn’t have even graced the field at this early stage.  The Demons also got a lesson on selection with Port Adelaide showing that 2 ruckmen on the field is an essential for this season.  It was a lesson that should have be

    THE WELCOME GAME by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has moved forward in leaps and bounds since it last met Port Adelaide in a totally forgettable (for Demon fans) season opener on the MCG.  That game, played on Sunday, 31 March, 2013 before a crowd of 22,924, was supposed to be a close encounter between two of the competition’s lesser lights from the previous season when the Power had finished 14th and the Demons 16th (ahead only of AFL newbies Gold Coast and GWS). It turned into a slaughter with Port taking the

    THE WALKING WOUNDED by Paddy Gosch

    Forget the fact that Melbourne narrowly missed out on getting the four JLT points on offer for a second consecutive week and the blow to the ego of a supposed top four contender losing ... well almost at home ... to a team that has recently dwelt in the AFL cellar and won a mere five games in 2018. The things that emerged from the horror final JLT outing was that the Demons are a long way from being prepared to take on the rigours of a long tough season in which they have one of the hardest fixt

    PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons have named a star studded line up in it’s final practice match before the season proper. They take on the emerging Brisbane Lions out at Casey which is the second of three matches at the ground on Saturday. Many of the Dees best 22 have been recalled including Vice Captains Max Gawn and Neville Jetta whilst Captains Nathan Jones and Jack Viney will play restricted minutes in the VFL curtain raiser. Former Gold Coast co-captain Steven May will play his first official game for Melb

    HIT OUT by Paddy Gosch

    As far as preseason hit outs go, the Demons’ first JLT Community Series fixture against the Tigers in the blistering heat at Shepparton, was instructive of a number of things but not really conclusive as to how each team will fare in the regular season against the competition's big guns (which includes against each other). That’s the way these practice match hit outs go. Neither of the teams was at full strength, particularly Melbourne but if you were looking for the reason for the 12 point

    HOT OUT OF THE CITY by Paddy Gosch

    The Dees travel out of the city for game one of two JLT Community Series practice matches before the season proper. Our first match takes us to the floodplains of the Goldburn River in Northern Victoria to the city of Shepparton. We take on the Tigers for the first of at least 3 encounters with the 2017 Premiers this year. The game will be played in scorching temperatures so expect plenty of rotations, ice vests, fans running overtime and extra water carriers. The Demons are coming off a wi

    GAME, SET & SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    I always believe in starting off any report by accentuating the positive and in that regard, as at the time of writing, the Demons have not reported any injuries so that’s my major positive from today’s practice game v the Magpies (albeit that we know the club is somewhat lax in reporting these things so my best wishes go out if any of today’s participants are in intensive care at the Alfred).  Another positive was that Razor Ray performed his umpiring duties admirably which is more than I

    SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons are set to take on the old enemy Collingwood in a good old fashioned Scratch Match on Friday Morning. It is unknown what form the match will take, how many quarters there will be, their length, the amount of rotations or even whether they'll keep score. One thing we do know for sure is that both coaching staffs will be keeping their cards close to their chests to ensure neither will glean too much from their competition. The Dees will likely be without some of their stars as Tom

    IMAGINE by Whispering Jack

    The Demons made their official return to the training track for 2019 on a sunny Saturday morning at Goschs Paddock with most of the interest initially centred on a small patch of ground in one of the pockets where the rehab group was going through the paces. Some good pieces of news on that score. The  rehab group is considerably smaller than it was prior to the Christmas break with Christian Petracca (knee), James Harmes (shoulder), Jayden Hunt (shoulder), Neville Jetta (shoulder), Oscar M
