Demonstone's Dirty Dozen

Recommended Posts

We used to have a bit of fun with these a few years ago on the old Demonology. 

The answer to each cryptic clue is a Demons player from this century.

Please limit yourself to TWO answers so as to give others a chance.

The judge (ie. me) has the final say.  Have at it cryptic fans....

 

1.  He was on a standard with Roger. 

Darren Jolly

2.  More suited to another sport.

Rohan Bail

3.  Classic and/or type of player.

David Rodan

4.  Second rate Collingwood hack.

Angus Brayshaw

5.  Smack a head coach or another one?

Luke Tapscott

6.  Given stern directions to finish up.

Jack Grimes

7.  Our favourite umpire?

Ricky Petterd

8.  Weights program proved helpful.

Steven Armstrong

9.  Matches?  Danger!

Jack Fitzpatrick

10.  Could have been another Rivers?

Shannon Byrnes

11.  Sounds like he was cool ... deep down.

James Sellar

12.  It was surprising to hear he was good.

Michael Evans

I presume you mean Q1, in which case you are correct. 

For some reason I can't edit my original post to include each correct answer.

Not the correct answer I know, but on reading Q4 I immediately thought of Heritier Lumumba.

Q2.   Rohan Bail (cricket).  Could just as easily be Brad Green (lawn bowls)

What, no vacuum cleaner joke? No 'only popular at Christmas'? I guess you can't do everyone in one sitting.

I'm a bit confused though - are the clues just to the name only, or about the player's characteristics? Anyway here's one answer of each type.

7 - David Rodan

8 - Steven Armstrong

Only a few of these are actually cryptic. Most are what are called "posers". But a great idea. Might give me something to do over the summer months to add to the entertainment.

At a stretch, Q3 could be James Strauss.

Thanks for filling in the answers GOTO.   Four down, eight to go.

I won't be able to get back to this until tomorrow morning, but for the sake of getting through it, disregard the two question limit if you'd like to have a go at some others.

    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

    THAT WAS THE YEAR THAT WAS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne atoned for the heartbreak of its frustrating finish to the 2017 season by, at long last, making the finals and then disposed of two highly credentialed and experienced teams in Geelong and Hawthorn before it capitulated meekly to eventual premier West Coast in the Preliminary Final in Perth. The club’s progression has been forward and upward since it finished 2013 with two wins and appointed Paul Roos as coach. The number has increased to four, seven, 10, 12, and now 14 games. The
