My name is Dieter because it rhymes with Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater, a rhyme my second ex-wife turned into Lady Eater.

And because there is absolutely no Demon player ever called Dieter. Big Carl came close. And the Demon  Krauts could have been named more imaginatively: Obst, Schwartz, Neitz, Mueller, Fritsch, Ditterich, Mann.

Just imagine Dieter Ditterich, Dieter Schwartz, Dieter Nietz, ah the list is endless.

My name is from “Central Business District Demons” (Dees). It was the name adopted by a short-lived luncheon group of Demon supporters who belonged to one of the four CBD Clubs. 🍷🍽

I was actually knighted when Tony Abbott was in charge (Remember the Dark Ages) He was just throwing them about. So i grabbed one!!

Thanks for explaining that WYLB. I always imagined it was because of your proximity to Ripponlea and your distinguished service to the ABC !

Simple homage to those wonderful “MCC Match Day” officials - the “Blue Coats” in another time. No matter how hard you would argue at the gate that your dress was appropriate, the stock response was always “call them what you will sir, those shoes are ‘runners’ or those trousers are ‘jeans’.” The Cleese “Upper Class Twit” imagery goes without saying.

When I was younger, I was a fanatical sailboarder. We went every opportunity.  After years of trudging my trade along The Great Ocean Road, I announced I refuse to go until the top temperature was 17deg.

I chose my name during the period when there were more frequent October Grand Finals. Now I think of it as, if I'm still celebrating in October, it's a good year for the Dees.

My name sake seemed to typify the Melbourne I have followed for so long.

Promise but in the end nothing.

Nothing 'creative' from me.  I'm just you're average 'Joe in the street', who loves our Club with all his heart, is lucky enough to have witnessed quite a few Flags, and who wants to witness at least one more before the final siren sounds.  That's my Monika, and I'm proud of it!

Hunter S Thompson is one of my favourite writers and Dr Gonzo is an alias he uses for his friend/attorney Oscar Zeta Acosta in Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas.

As the originator of Gonzo journalism one of my favourite quotes of HST's is "buy the ticket, take the ride" which is what it's like to follow this club. In it to the death for better or worse. I love the way he communicates a seriousness/truth shrouded in nonsense/surrealism in his writings

On BigFooty my username is Demonic Ascent chosen in 2006 when I thought we were about to experience the Ascent of the Demons - I was a little off on that one....

I joined 'Ology and 'Land around the same time and, at the time the MFC were drying out for a CHF.

Fork 'em cause I hate every other club out there.
I think we were also getting screwed by the AFL in regards to tanking at the time.
Something half a dozen other clubs had done before us.

I could have thought it was a reference to that guy Martin that use to play for us back in the 90s.  Fairly handy player the old Pike and has a nice little collection of premiership medallions to prove it too.

Must have been a great group with some fantastic lunch options/memories. Had a similar one going years ago, in Melbourne, amongst a group of professional associates and boy, did we look forward to these little sojourns! We had a rule: The best lunches in Melb were south and east of the Yarra River, and the best beers were in Richmond.

Used to be an avid LAN session gamer and one day stuffing around with a mate I accidentally clocked him on the head with a Screwdriver, (Red handled, Flat Head,.... the screwdriver, not my friend!) and as a result of him saying 'Ouch....' I took on the moniker of Oucher. 

.....If I'm being truthful he swore at me, but I couldn't be known as the f**ker! 

Anyway, after a name reboot here a few years ago, I shortened it to Ouch! for the boards.

Avatar is Hot Stuff, old school comic character!

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.

News to me too - wasn't in the signing up instructions. Tony was my hero when I first attended the G in the 60's.

Wanted to reinforce my past, present and future aspirations for the club, players and Dland .

I was a slow contributor to Dland having followed for many years

Just a derivation from my initials. Was sadly lacking in imagination at the time. 

Avatar was from a gift shop in Beechworth. Although it looks like a homage to Freddie Mercury, it’s just a phrenology bust with lots of positive affirmations on it.

Coincidentally a double acronym:

  • This is Melbourne (in English)
  • Want a Flag (in Transylvanian).

Obvious, really. 

You're not a sorcerer? 

 

Mine began with The Greatest American Hero whose title character was named Ralph Hinkley.  Through many years of message boards, games and chats the name evolved due to other members having already claimed the name Ralph, until the current version came into existence.

I loved the way he played as well. Now there was a half back line: Anderson, Roet, Leahy.

Mine started of when I was rudely called a name by another poster, (started with the letters) 'de"...

So I started to think about avatar names and images, and thought I would mispell the word as an Avatar name.  And so started off the 'Dee' prefix on Demonland...

 

I was also the author of the "Dees"... back in the mid 90's against the Blues at the 'G'.    "Go Dees".  Schwarta tore the blues a new hole in that 2nd half,  to cut them up.

    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
