  1. Lucky we didn't get him...didn't we self report salary cap breaches between 1995-98!! Matera wouldn't have come cheap!
  2. "Despite having been given an unexpected week off by virtue of the West Coast/Collingwood draw, the Demons entered the match against the Eagles with troubles. Garry Lyon missed the match after being collected heavily by Steve O'Dwyer in a Thursday night training mishap." http://demonwiki.org/Semi+Final+1990 Oh Strawbs 🍓
  3. The Hawks also got lucky with Zoning and basically had a state team ...and it's never gone away!
  4. I dared to watch the a replay of the 1987 Prelim...Jim Stynes actually gives away at 15m penalty earlier in the game, and in the Final quarter John Kennedy of the hawks is awarded a goal when the ball seems to miss/hit the post (same one Ricky Jackson hits 1 year later interestingly enough)
  5. Yep, if you watch any of the highlights of 87 onward, you really come to admire what a smart footballer Brett Lovett was. Very underrated league-wide. I think Jeff White is completely underrated as a ruckman too, in my opinion a far more complete a footballer than Gawn or Stynes. Could kick, mark, brilliant tapouts. I'd argue he's almost the best ruckman of his era.
  6. That 1990 SF was definitely an opportunity lost, but the Eagles were also on their way up. This didn't help - according to Demon wiki: " Garry Lyon missed the match after being collected heavily by Steve O'Dwyer in a Thursday night training mishap." http://demonwiki.org/Semi+Final+1990
  7. Is there some controversy about the circumstances in which we let him go (to Fitzroy initially I believe)
  8. I remember him kicking some absolute monster goals from the centre square. He was better from the longer distances than the shorter ones I reckon! David Schwarz was an excellent kick for goal too. Adem Yze the best user of the football that I've seen in Demon colors (never saw robbie)
  9. I’m just disappointed that this wasn’t a haiku
  10. Is George on the Outer the old ABC Commentator Charles Slade? Sounds like him to me!
  11. I wouldn't begrudge anyone a beer, but sadly, Steven May comes across to me as a mug. What were the picks we gave up for May and Lever used for?

    Gary Pert

    Can't assess his performance for at least another 18 months.
  14. Adelaide still won 12 games though, we'd kill for that this year.
