  1. I don’t believe stats tell the whole story either. You were the one who posted the link as evidence for your point. I just don’t agree with people using cherry-picked stats that “prove” their assertions.
  2. I am not a great fan o f ANB but Cherry-picking stats from a year in which a team came near to last as against the premiers is a bit disingenuous Try comparing their 2018 stats or their career stats which you can find from the site you have sourced. You maybe surprised.
  3. That’s because Essendon are everyone’s second favourite team. Even the umpires.
  4. In future all team selections should have to be ratified by a commitee made up of Demonland contributors. Chaired by ( insert most qualified) What could possibly go wrong?
  5. Tim Smith has been picked because he was the tall forward in the best form. Goodwin has shown his hand that if you are performing at VFL level you will get a game. On last weeks form at Casey the next tall option would be Keilty. Pedo is not in form at the moment and it would have been an injustice if he had been given a game this weekend. I am sure he will be considered again when his fitness and form warrant it.
  6. Played last weekend. Was very ordinary. Would prefer they gave Frost, Smith or Keilty a shot on the form shown on Sunday
  7. Thought he was as bad as Tyson today for causing turnovers early on. Both players played better as the game went on. Both will definitely be there next week barring injury. As will O Mac who I thought was solid today.
  8. Thanks for the tip Jesse.
  9. My advice - take your lead from Game of Thrones. Don't get too attached to anybody even if they are a star, next season they could be gone.
  10. A much more worthy derailment than most on here mark. Hope things turn out for the best for you and your family.
  11. It wasn't my intention to take sympathy away from markc. Just trying to give support to someone with similar situation. But yes it is hard especially for the kids.
  12. I know exactly what you are going through. I wish you all the best. The Life of special people is sometimes way too short. 12 years ago today I lost the best wife and mother anyone could wish for.
  13. We must be improving. It was over 12 hours before changes to next weeks team appeared.
  14. Don't have an answer for this but could you stay out of the country till 2nd October.
  15. It's no surprise the posters on here who don't get it. Try looking at the problem through the eyes of a sections of the community who have been abused and vilified for decades (sometimes centuries) instead of through the eyes of the white middle class male. You may find you see things in a different light.
  16. Not an expert like some on here. But watched both games on the weekend and think OMac is the length of the straight ahead of Frost at the moment.
  17. I thought it was funny. Then again maybe that's just me.
  18. Went out and had a look tonight. Not usually a reporter but here's some of my observations. He hasn't been mentioned much on here but thought Smith showed some good signs tonight, got better as the night went on. Took some nice marks and kicks well Hunt was also outstanding with his pace, started out being a bit erratic with his kicking but by nights end was hitting targets at will. Petracca looks a class above, we should just bite the bullet and start him next week. Brayshaw was also in everything and isn't far off. Weideman still a bit off but shows promise. Needs to lead more till his body grows enough to match it with the maturer bodies.
  19. Received mine today too. Looks great. Very impressed.
  20. Sorry old dee too many bad memories, I can't quite believe the nightmare is over.
  21. You almost have me believing old dee. I pray you're as right with your optimism as you have been with your pessimism. Hopefully you are the barometer of the demons fortunes.
