TISM reference with a slight allusion to Colin Garland.

If you know the band members, you will know that one of the vocalists was Ron Hitler Barassi. I thought that that indirect reference to the MFC should be parlayed into my natural user name: Humphrey B. Flaubert. However, as Col's early nickname at the club was Humphrey as he never talked, I added the Colin bit.

I once got a private message on here once  (unironically I think, it's hard to tell on the internet sometimes) asking if I was the bloke from TISM. Alas, I'm not

Hold onto your hats, because it just so happens that my first name is Jack and I follow the Demons. It goes without saying that 16 year old me wasn't that inspired during the making of this account.

I've worked with explosives in the farms of Victoria, the coal mines of Qld, and gold mines of the Solomon Islands since 1999

Any time a blast doesn't fire as intended, you dont accept blame yourself, you blame a faulty detonator.

Does a preaedjactualtion count as a faulty detonator ?

I was in a ZZ Top phase and this song was playing when I signed up.  Liked the idea that to be a demon tragic often feels like you got no clothes on.  People stare and wonder aloud how small your stocks are.  Not any more, proud to have my membership out at every opportunity.

I visited Prague for the first time in 2007, and noticed "Praha" brandished everywhere, which, obviously, is Czech for "Prague". I always thought it would be a cool name for the bar I was going to open before I turned 30.

Anyway I never opened the bar so thought I'd change my username to this. Prior to that it was "Cudi_420" which was just a joke name (Kid Cudi, 420, blaze it... ya know?), and before that, calabreseboy, which was a username I used online, dating back to my teenage years when I was a fully sick wog boy.

Series 1 of “the Simpsons” used it as well. When the Family was ultra violent to each other. 

When the Simpson’s became PC i knew life as we knew it was over!! :)

Bart Simpson's horse Duncan had the racing name furious d. It seemed fitting as I often get furious while watching the demons.

In all honesty I picked my stage name before I realized that such direct reference to former players wasn't exactly the done thing on Demonland.

But that all said, this bloke was pretty much my favorite player as a kid and an absolute bloody legend of the MFC, so I'm sticking to it.

You chose well

‘McQueen’ was actullay inspired by my then 2 year old son who was obsessed with Lightning McQueen the racing car. That coupled with my deep regard for the ‘King of Cool’ is why I wear and cycle the Steve McQueen avatars.

Back in the early 90s I spent a bit of time in the Old Magistrates Court in Spring St. The part I loved was the breaks when the various legal teams would adjourn to the Central Courtyard and the debates would start. I was there as a subject matter expert and informant and the Legislation the proceedings where being brought under was very new.

I would get questions about what various things meant, from our team of Solicitors and the Barrister. It was a great education as the barrister in particular would ask my opinion and then proceed to argue against everything I said (sounding familiar?) Where I could point him towards supporting facts I was on much safer ground. There was more than one occasion when his interpretation of the Legislation  caused me to re-think my position or change how I was arguing it.

As a barrack room lawyer I love a debate (when I have time) but what really irks me is people who offer an opinion as fact and they haven't done the research or read the rules/legislation and essentially cannot provide any evidence to support their argument. If you ever have time, go sit in some open court sessions. You'll very quickly see what happens when opinion given on the basis of feelings is used to support an argument. I would love to see more people educated in this area instead of getting their opinions from "social" media or the "Media" in general, but I digress.

For a long time on this site I was a guest and didn't post. But I was always struck by the similarity with my Magistrate Court involvement.

When it came to choosing a name I thought it a nice homonym to use "worship", as a Magistrate was addressed as "Your Worship"

I know there are a number of members here who have a legal background and yes, I know Magistrates are now referred to as "Your Honour". Probably because the great unwashed never new the difference between a Magistrate and a Judge, (that's an "opinion").                

Unfortunately, DHonour just doesn't work and besides, I'd rather have the name shortened to DW than DH

Legend? Absolute champion, please! Great name to have, and well selected. I still have dreams about the accuracy of his clearances and his superb kicking to a teammate some 60 metres away....and his desire for the ball no matter what! Only the opposition 'stagers' got a kick off him - and that was gifted by some snot-gobbling umpire misreading the purity of his work ethic.

    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
