AKA old55 and Spunjy

I remember you started as old on here with the bunny in the snow profile pic. Spunjy makes sense for Bob given the current profile pic.

I took the same username on Land and probably stopped posting on ology about 3 years ago, maybe more. A pity, there was some fun banter - including the non-footy stuff.

Does anyone remember the thread started by Robbie F  called "Are we in , or about into enter a recession?". It was started soon after the election of Rudd in 2007 or early 2008 but before everyone knew of the impending Global Financial Crisis. It was so passionate that 'ology had to split the boards between footy and non-footy after that.

That reminds me - markc was another passionate Melbourne man that frequented both sites. I hope I’ve got my wires crossed here but did I read recently that he had passed away?

That was me Nasher. There’s a nice thread on here mid January where I broke the news and Mark got a lot of love that he thoroughly deserved.

Im gutted he’s not here to see us playing the way we have been. He loved our club.

Another ex-ology here! I left when it fell in a hole. I had already joined land but posted rarely.

Sheesh that was a while ago.

Yep me too. I still remember when @TGR
used to refer to Demonland as "strawberry fields" ?

I often wondered if Dr Who ended up here in some guise. Maybe multiple ones. Would get sniffed out pretty quick though I would suspect with their views.

He definitely has been on here - he's also on Big Footy and is a GWS supporter can't remember his username though.

Edit - you'll know his posts when you see them, he's the one who always blamed the supporters for the club's failure over the last 50+ years

I have been thinking of Mark C and Two Sheds Jackson (Magnificent name, that one) both of whom i hope are watching The Demons somewhere. 
A mate of mine died in early 2016, he was a mad Bulldog Supporter 

GF day in a Manila Sports Bar i got smashed on whiskey’s in his honour. 
Was really sad he didn’t see it

How's this for a bump?!?

 

I came from demonology originally, can remember thinking this joint was wack and the 7 active posters on demonology were way smarter than you bunch of lunatics. From memory it was around the time Ricky Petterd was running around, always liked that guy.

 

Anyone else from/remember demonology?

 

 

Sure was Josh! Circa 2001 or 2002 was when I joined. So many great memories and the server going into Meltdown the day Woewodin was traded. 

Joined DL shortly after that on the old site. Really is a credit to the guys here for not only keeping it running this long but turning into the machine it is today with the podcast etc

Yeah I remember being shocked by news on TSJ. He posted not long before he passed and correct me if I’m wrong but I think he said he was doing some stand up comedy at the time!?

He was a young man :(

I couldn't remember if he was on ology or land, such is my memory.  He was a riot and cringworthy at the same time. Loved the stuff about him going to be drafted, as well as outlandish statements and commentary on his fights on Big Footy.

Knackers (later Philthy Knackers) was a funny and knowledgeable poster.

This thread made me think of Knackers. A long time ago I was up very late at night (wife was in labour) and he posted that he had two copies of a book and the first confirmed MFC member could have a copy. Sure enough I was the first and sure enough he sent the book. He was @ol' Grimey Knackers by that stage...doesn't look like he's been active for a while though. 

I think stakka from 'ology became @Curry & Beer here...hasn't logged in for a while either though.

I’d forgotten about two sheds jackson - that was a gut wrenching moment too. These forums do certainly offer a bunch of strangers a sense of connectedness.

I was originally an ologist sometime around early to mid 2000's. Went on here around the same time. My memory was different to others. I remember it being more civil over there and this place had a reputation for too much  juvenile infighting. But I came over at the time of that split around 2008. Thankfully mods have done a great job cleaning things up on here and a few people who needed to be have been moved on. Quality just keeps getting better. Mind you we all have a bit more positive things to say for the first time since '64. Nowadays look here before I look at any of the press. Way better informed and intelligent researched content than any of the fourth estate rags nowadays.

Yes it was a serious message that hit hard. 
i had grown up with all the Python Records, so i knew who “Arthur” 2 sheds jackson was, so i knew this guy had a good sense of humour. 
I should search it out again.

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2021 by Whispering Jack

    MUCH ADO ABOUT NOT MUCH The 2021 Free Agency and Trade Periods were billed by Fox Footy as promising a “period like no other and that certainly proved correct but not for the reasons that Network spin suggested when promoting its daily program of news from the trade desk. The truth is that the football public has endured an uneventful and forgettable fortnight unless you perhaps, happen to be a Carlton or a Hawthorn fan. The Blues managed to pick up the biggest name of the trade peri

    CHANGES 2021 by The Oracle

    Part 1: Moving right along … For the first time in aeons, the end of the football season hasn’t felt as if it passed so swiftly. We’re still living the dream of 25 September, 2021 and rightfully so — we were patient, long-suffering and we’ve earned the right to party hard (as long as we’re not infecting the rest of the state as some health authorities contend). But we’ve also come into October which in football terms means that for one segment of the Melbourne Football Club — the recru

    THE APPRENTICE by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne Next Generation Academy prospect Mac Andrew has had a meteoric rise in the eyes of many track watchers who follow the fortunes of football talent at the elite level. So much so that under the AFL's new rules which prohibit clubs from matching bids on their NGA players within the first 20 selections, there’s a widely held perception that Andrew is falling out of the club’s grasp.   Despite being buoyed by the Demons’ drought-breaking premiership, some fans are showing their a

    OUR GRAND OLD FLAG by George On The Outer

    When an AFL Grand Final approaches, supporters look for omens to help them foresee how their team will fare in the contest.   Melbourne supporters were, until just before Saturday’s opening bounce, the best in the business at looking for positives to give them hope and direction - a natural feeling after 57 years in the wilderness. So when the Bulldogs’ streamers kept slipping from the handle of the Premiership Cup as Glen Jackovich delivered it to Optus Stadium, they wondered whether it

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition th

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s
