Anyone else feeling sick in the guts

Tigers and Dogs winning the flag is great for the AFL, means anyone who has few injuries, good draw, bit of luck and can put together a very good last 6-8 weeks is in with a chance for the flag.

Demons best players still seem better suited to 2019/2020 for a tilt at the flag, but finish top 4 this year and you never know! 

2018 shapes up as an exciting year, just a little luck and we are finals bound, and our best will get us in the top 4, go Dees!

Tongue in cheek mate. It’s defnitely a good trend.

I’m still bitter though. I’m yet to meet a Tigers supporter whose company I enjoyed. I’m sure they exist. I just haven’t met one yet.

Doc, interesting post in the light of a telephone conversation I just had with a fellow demon fanatic of 50 years. At the end I said something to the effect “how good are those demons”. Silence....when I explained it was the women, we both agreed in our lifetimes we are far more likely to see the girls win (possibly multi) premierships than the men.

Personally I am investing very little emotional energy this year in the men after being so disappointed in the last two years. I am predicting a 12-14th finish for them. As I have previously posted, I think we will very much regret our trading this year with Port Adelaide finishing in thr top four off the back of the demon players we have given to them in the last two years. 

It will be a tough year, but go girls - they are a star studded outfit!

After the debacle at the end of last year, I had a feeling of peace come over me and i guess it was from knowing that its done and dusted.I wouldn't be kicked in the guts any more.The pathetic finale to the end of the year had taken it all out of me and i dare say a lot of other supporters of long standing (in my case 53 years)It was like stuff this,i'm going fishing next year.But as the new season approaches,and I look at our list,with all our youngsters with another year under their belt,and hopefully not so rotten of luck with injuries the old spirit is coming back with what I started this thread with a nervous feeling in the guts.

I'M BACK IN.

GO YOU MIGHTY DEMONS.

Port will finish top four off the back of the players we have given them over the past two years? Crikey. I should stop following the Demons while I’m still young.

I really do wonder what the implications of missing the finals will be?

We'll all do a 180 on the "we dont need a big fish" talk. I think we'll be trading quite a few players to make cap room for a massive offer to Sloane or another player, if this group cant deliver finals.

We will have some epic wins and tragic losses. 

Hopefully more of the former.

I'll settle for a long sequence of comfortable, routine, unremarkable victories.

I'm quietly confident. I thought we should have finished top 4 last year. We knocked over one Grand Finalist on their home soil, and should have taken out the other but for injuries. Brain farts undid us. Not playing out 4 q's did us. I think, as our list matures, that will get less and less. We have the list and the support... the real question is if we have the cojones .

Just try to pick our best 22 and you can see our depth is much better and we have a lot of players who will hopefully be headed for breakout years. It looms as an exciting year. 

Petracca

Salem

Brayshaw

Hogan

Max

All seemingly had good preseasons, am feeling optimistic about 2018!

Ollie wines is out of contract at the end of the year.

I like all long suffering Dee supporters feel a bit crook in the guts at this time of year, 2017 gave us some great wins, un-explainable poor losses, a massive fade out against the lowly Lions and then a gut wrenching loss to the Pies. The Lions win set off alarm bells in my head once again, so I wasn't as surprised as some that we played so poorly in Round 23. This year I am not expecting it to be an easy road to the finals, there are 10 other teams that can make it, I want and expect this group of players to guts out wins that we would have lost and put teams to the sword that aren't 100% on or are injury depleted. No more mister nice guy's, I want mean hard, tough players that play for each other the Club and us supporters. Nothing else will be good enough in 2018.

Go Dee's....................!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Having been a Demons supporter since switching from Carlton under peer pressure from taunting school mates in 1964. I have been living with hope every year that the next year will be the one.

50+ years on and it hasn't changed, however this upcoming season has me feeling more than ever that we can take the next step and really give it a good shake, but I am torn between putting all my emotional energy into a team that has ripped my heart out,or giving it another shot. I guess it's nature's way of  warning my body.

Cassandra? Just teasing, but is there any chance there is no 'Norm Smith curse' but you swapping from the Blues...?
