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. 

He was a pretty handy pinch hitter as a forward on his day too (mainly later in his career I seem to remember).  Probably struck a bit of Tony Lockett fear factor into anyone that got into his space, but was a dam good kick for goal as well and didn't waste many opertunities.

A skuit is a woman's suit worn with a skirt in place of pants. Pretty self-explanatory really.

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

I always thought you were a Clearance Diver or Ammunition tech for the Army. Those guy blow up bombs all day.

Had a few clearance divers work for me overseas in the Sollys.  Great blokes, but boy do they enjoy a beer.

We play with "bomb" almost every day. Sometimes firing over 1000 tonnes at a time.

The military guys are much more limited in their play time, due to funding.

 

Must have been a faulty det

One of my favourite bands is Demented Are Go!, a Welsh psychobilly band who started in the early 80s and are amazingly still going despite decades of debauchery. 

Featuring demonic hits such as: 

Satan’s rejects, House of Blood, Love seeps like a festering sore, Who put grandma under the stairs, Queen of disease, Brand new corpse, Cripple in the woods and Demon angel.

No brainer, really.

Plus the Thunderbirds reference in the band name, which I loved as a kid.

Still waiting for Jaded to respond and explain whether her real name is Jade with a surname starting with D or whether her user name is just a description about how she feels. Or both.

At the time I joined Demonland we were a joke on and off the field and if you didn't laugh you'd have to cry. Hence, a kind of comedy. 

Note: I'm not a fan of users changing their names without explanation. In the spirit of full disclosure, I changed my name once - but only because I couldn't spell Comedia correctly.

Great locals (Once you knew how to duck under a machete). The Govt withdrew my Visa when the Mine called Force majeure after a cyclone dumped 1000mm in 48hrs.

During a heavy day with the lads at a pub early 2000's I was watching one of Troy Broadbridge's early awkward games and after a surprising piece of play yelled at the TV "go you big red fire engine". I followed him with curiosity during his early time at Sandy and across his 40 games for the MFC. I joined this site the year after his passing and it just felt right at the time as a reminder that there is so much more than football. 

And Peter Walsh was the Little Red Fire Engine.

I am Big Kev because Stephen Tingay autographed one of my Demons Caps as To Big Kev, since then that cap has been signed by Robert Flower (RIP), Steven Armstrong and Nathan Jones.

A nice collection of No.2 greats signatures on thay hat Big Kev.  What an awsome bit of genuine supporter memorabilia.  These days the professional collector types etc would probably pay a mint for something that, but I'm tipping that to you it's a priceless keep sake you're not willing to part with for a price.

Correct, some of them are extremely hard to read now, but I know who signed it.

    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
