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.

Way, way back in the day, it was only match reports to be found online. Whispering Jack was doing it way back then too, plus Hoju had his own going, with the Melbourne Chronicle along with Demonology.

I was a co-founder of Demonology around 1997-8 for hazy memory, though I was a passenger and hardly a driving force. It was originally a merger of three small fan sites. Demon Chronicles, Hoju’s

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?

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.

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!?

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.

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane.

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
