Demonland

Bulldogs "Thor" Guernsey

Recommended Posts

Interesting, with Chris Hemsworth being a big doggies fan I do wonder if he had a hand in this decision somewhere along the line. 

Still not as bad as that Golden Logies Hawks jumper, that takes the cake for garbage jumpers.

I’d like to see some kind of protest by Dogs’ supporters, either by flooding the club with emails or simply not turning up at Marvel Rd 1.

We are starting to cross lines that shouldn’t be crossed, when a club starts to lose part of its identity for garbage jumpers and portrayal of players as superheroes, we are getting awfully close. 

I find it a bit sad actually if they have to resort  to this for extra dollars.

What's the chance our new corporate overlords have either kicked in funds to make this happen, or (more likely) ordered the AFL to put the frighteners on and make it happen under an obscure clause in the sponsorship contract?

The post above about dressing up as Spiderman is probably more than a figment of some marketing apparatchik's imagination. They're probably measuring up Nathan and Max for sizes right now.

Many of us were joking at the time it was announced (the unholy marriage of the AFL and the comic book company) but it was always highly likely that they weren't going to be spending all those $$$$ without infiltrating our game with their toys and cosplay.

Why do you imagine the Dogs are the first cab off the rank and not Collingwood or Hawthorn?

This is only the start of it.

The Adelaide Crows have also announced that the team will be running out in full corpse paint to emulate Eric Draven. 

If we are going corpse paint let’s do it properly. Gorgoroth style!!!

Not having a direct dig at you D from Syd, but I reckon that if putting your head in a bucket of water 3 times and taking it out twice was considered a success in the USA, they'd be people saying it was a good idea here too.

Asked and answered.

Are they playing under AFLX rules in this game?

AFLX, Thorful jumpers...seems like the AFL executive has identified 10-year olds as their key target market.

Okay I suppose its for the younger members of the audience but it's getting very close to cringeworthy.

Almost Meat Loafesque one could say.

Could it be coming from the same marketing area that gave us the AFLX? If so I think they need a little guidance from elsewhere.

Stadium entertainment is hard but if you are smart it can be done. I hear the pre game act at the new Perth stadium is a good as it involves the stadium itself coming to life.

Trouble with this being 'about the young fans' is that it isn't an optinoal extra special outfit for the kids, it is the required, compulsory, team uniform.

"We are trying to increase our reach to kids, so all patrons at the MCG will be required to only consume Happy Meals and Kinder Surprises (except Jack Watts who will be given Wizz Fizz and then pilloried for it)"

I don't know how to react to this news except with the traditional remedy of mockery and ridicule.

We could play along and point out that (according to Marvel) Thor's homeworld was completely destroyed by a giant red Demon... Or... that the Bulldogs better watch out because if Gil snaps his fingers, half the clubs in Victoria will disappear and you can bet the Bulldogs will be found to be surplus... Or... that when the Avengers want to look serious they wear Melbourne guernseys... Or... a bunch of Demon supporters can turn up to our first game there wearing X-Men outfits...

But really, a deafening, disinterested silence is probably the way to go.

F' it. I dunno. The single instance itself is just too stupid to care more than being momentarily irritated.

Theyre kinda ok, cause its related to the sport and promoting culture etcetera. This other stuff is just blatant Americanism that is not even remotely related to aussie rules.

I can picture a future conversation with my son:

once upon a time there was this great game called Aussie Rules. Then a [censored]-end by the name of Gill took control and sold the game for some magic beans.  so to answer your question, that is why the Demons are wearing capes on this jernseys

    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 two ruckmen on the field is an essential for this season.  It was a lesson that should

    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
