  1. Richmond used to own spot number nine every year... we have knocked them off their perch...
  2. Story goes this old dying dees supporter contacted the club and asked if some team members could act as his pall bearers at his funeral and burial. His son was upset and asked why not family? The old guy replied: "I just want them to let me down one last time."
  3. I was walking down the main street today, in my small Victorian country town, looking for some pub that would agree to switch on the dees game. I spied an old codger across the street wearing a demons scarf. I rushed across and told him we must be the only dees supporters in town. He said: "Sorry, mate. I bought this from the Op Shop to keep my neck warm." My small country town still boasts only one demonlander.
  4. old : well the team played fine in the year thirty-nine/ we're the demons that no-one can lick/ and you'll find us there at the final bell/ in the spirit of 1926... new: well the team played mean in the year seventeen we don't give up possession - no way and we don't need Max and we don't need Hoges they can play in the two's Saturday
  5. Sorry, mate. Just banter. It was you and the Tasmanian who used to wonder about the relationship between my drinking and some of my rambling posts back in the days of the demonology chatroom. Best wishes. Rollo
  6. Well,(expletive deleted), nothing changes. (Although I had lots of offers from well-endowered Young Russian girls while trying to get to this site. Hey, bush. I can think of 5 such wins since '64. Roger. Yep, demonology was a blast, but we are all serious demonlanders now and the thought police are monitoring our every word. Deestroy (!!). I would have thought you would have drunk yourself to death by now. Way to go, mate. I hope your liver makes it to the next dees finals campaign. Dazzle. You will pay for a Brown Brothers fine white wine, but give me a call. My number has not changed from the inter-forum days when we were [censored]-cared that dazzle had missed the train again. (m) 0408 698 328. Wise, we got beaten by Saintsational on a day you were not available. Captain Wise never played in a losing demonland/demonology forum team, but a Royal Commision has been announced into the goal umpy's call of our last gasp kick for goal in the very first saintsational match. Can't quite recall who that goal umpy was. :) I do recall the idiot demonlander who posted on site the next day that he thought his kick went the wrong side of the post !! Desciple, reading on here , I can't believe that 99% of people have not heard of the great TGR. It's like reality TV - you gotta have some bad guys. If we win a premirship, Rono will criticise the interchange decisions and call for the sacking of the coach. A poster on here once accused me of being TGR. I have never felt so insulted in my entire life. Finally, I don't think this site needs rollo when it has skuit. One intelligent and erudite person is surely too much?
  7. Dear All, I don't post these days, but am highly entertained by this site, and rumours of my death are somewhat exaggerated. I am pleased to see TGR has survived all the death threats over all the years. I did dispatch the Benalla bikies some years ago to end his career, but they got distracted by some good-looking women in Clonbinane. It may be fake news, but I have read that the Russians have paid Trump to send Special Forces personnel to protect TGR from harm, and Demonland gets a dollar for every TGR post from the Russian foreign aid budget. As a teenager in 1964 watching Hassa Mann miss from point-blank range, and the hulk Gabilich wander down the ground with no Demon in pursuit, I was crying too hard to see Crompton kick the winning goal to deliver our last premiership, but I watched it many times on the replay. His opponent (as back-pocket) would have been one of the Collingwood rovers, Norman or Bone, but they are nowhere in sight on the replay. The players all had day jobs back then, and match fitness and forward-line pressure had not been invented. Lots of the guys had a smoke at three-quarter time. My ticker did not skip a beat in '64, but I nearly had a heart attack today, and it was just a home-and-away game. Can we start a petition to the players? Win big or lose big, but no more close games please or the baby boomers might die. Regards to old friends and old enemies. Steely glare for TGR. Rollo
  8. Hey, youngsters... love reading on demonland these days... try not to post, but get provoked sometimes... if this kid stays injury free for 5 years and becomes a midfield general, comparisons with past superstars may be appropriate... at the top of the list has to be Ronald Dale Barassi...
  9. Youngsters, back in the day, we dees referred to Essendon as the "scum." Part of going to the footy (for most of us) is putting down the other teams and their feral supporters. The bulldogs guys are so annoying because they are so polite. But those of us who enjoyed the demonland forum footy against the dons in recent years met up with fellow footy tragics, who just happened to belong to the other tribe. I have a mate who handed back his Essendon membership when the scandal broke, but his reaction was not common. How would we have reacted (as individual supporters) if it had been our club? I don't think I could abandon my tribe, no matter what. My two cents says we should let them have their protest without our participation. But if a fight breaks out, I will way in with both crutches. Can people who join the fight wear the club colours please? Just in case you come within the arc of the crutches.
  10. Takes me back to '87, youngsters... northey as coach... stynes, viney senior, stretch, lyon, the febey boys, the late (great) robbie flower, and all the other guys... we had an enforcer in those days, name was (political correctness requires deletion)... when the top teams decide to take out the dees' match winners, who is our enforcer in 2016? I know the rules have changed, but the game has not as far as I can see... just asking...
  11. yep, agreed, but I already joined. any starting 18 that leaves Lynden out is wrong IMO, unless he is genuinely injured or not match fit. Lynden is Melbourne for me. How much more does he have to bleed for this club? Regards to all and, by the way, rumours of my death were somewhat exaggerated. I like to read these days, but do not often feel that I have anything to say that has not already been said better. The grammar on this site has not improved. Youngsters, the correct spelling is "definitely." 1987 memories stirring in these old bones... Regards, Rollo
  12. Hey, I can now die knowing that the tradition of song can continue, mate. Great effort, if I may say so. Regards, Rollo
  13. No takers ?? Guess we are a different group in 2015...
  14. It's a grand old flag It's a high-flying flag It's the emblem for me and for you It's the emblem of the team we love And credit to you who stood true Every heart beats true For the red and the blue Credit to me and to you'se And credit to a man we know A bloke that is known as Paul Roos Extra verses welcome. Time to celebrate in song. Regards to all, Rollo
