Hogan's Heroes wasn't around then. I'm guessing WYL and his constant crusade against mediocrity. ;)

Really enjoyed listening to this. Well done to those involved. Demonland obviously left a scar on Daniel Ward and whilst i must admit I never frequented Demonland in those days it is good to know that not much has changed.

There was an incident a few years ago about a senior player's father cornering a 'senior' member of Demonland at the MCG to have a crack at him over comments on here about his son.

This is why I always keep my comments respectful. It's okay to be angry or grumpy or not rate a player, but if you wouldn't say it to the player or the player's mother, don't say it on Demonland.

Ive never bagged our players really, i admit i get frustrated in some Gameday threads but they are just passing comments.

Having said that, if a player or a players family get rattled by football related comments on here they need a thicker skin.

H_H the new villain since Range Rover fled, and Stuie started lurking in the shadows only popping out every now and then.

That's interesting, I seem to have seen that somewhere before, can't place where Nasher

As I have said before, a senior player told me that the team are told not to read Demonland because 'it is full of negativity', the mud sticks

It's easy to say that from the comfortable position of never having had every man and his dog having an opinion on your work when they have no idea of the details of it (playing injured, doing as instructed by coach etc). I imagine it's water off a duck's back for most players, but as each individual is different, you can't always predict how people are going to react when the criticism is relentless, excessive and unreasonable.

Don't know about you Nasher, but I usually end up falling about laughing

I dont know if you've realised but following MFC over the last decade or so has been a pretty negative experience.

Anyway good job on the podcast guys, fills in some time on the ride to work.

That's funny. I've been told not to watch Melbourne games because their they're full of negativity too.

EDIT: Just committed the cardinal spelling sin.

I like the podcast, but reading out posts calling spencer a spud and calling a past player a hack is poor form, especially on a podcast where you interview past players.

Did he play enough games to qualify for Father Son? I loved Obst as a kid was a very skilled and creative player, was a great addition to our 1990 side.

EDIT - just checked he played 149 games so definitely qualifies.
