Recommended Posts

Hi, I thought this would be good for everyone on the forum to tell us a bit about themselves, whether your a new poster, or an 'old' one.

As for me.

I'm 18, doing VCE exams at the moment. Begun volunteering at the MFC late last year with the Demonology/Demonland volunteer group, and from there I begun doing some full days at the club, including the chance to go on the Footy Show Membership Drive on the clubs table.

My most memorable MFC moment was round 2, 2004, when I went into the rooms, met some players, and ex-players as it was the 'Unficiation March'. Ron Barrassi told me to 'get some porridge' into me. I then donned the playing gear, ran through the banner, and tossed the coin.

Amazing experience.

Ok, over to you.

I might as well have a go,

Well my name is Dale, im 19 and live near Pakenham. Right now I should be studying for exams for uni, where I study Medical, Forensic and Analytical Chemistry (impressive name hey :P ). Outside following the demons and uni, I'd say my main interest is music, punk and hardcore mainly.

My most memorable MFC moment is still to come in a few years, when we win a flag!!!!! :D

Anyway thats all I can think of for now so...cheers!

I'm 19, having finished my VCE exams last year (don't listen to what they tell you, my high ENTER score means nothing these days).

I decided to take a year off, and now I work in child-care and nanny on the side. I'm going to study nursing next year, well if I get in that is.

Apart from my work and footy, my other real passions in life are shopping, reading and music. But I will happily give up all my shoes, books and my iPod if it means seeing a Melbourne premiership.

:)

Why would we hurt you?

Anyone whose ditched the Bombers to come over to the Dees is a great friend of ours!

We respect your obviously phenominal judgement!

i agree to an extent, but it damn hard to believe that when you are actually doing VCE, but once you finish you look back and can see where people are coming from

Don't get me wrong, your ENTER is important if you know straight away what you want to do. But I got into a course with limited places, decided I hated it and dropped out.

One year later, and I may not get into a nursing course, although my ENTER was almost 30 points higher than the required ENTER for year 12 students.

You should always strive to achieve your best, but don't beat yourself up too much if you don't finish with 99.95. Even if you don't get into the course you want, there are always ways to work around it.

Just enjoy year 12, because you will miss school when it's finished.

Howdy, I am 18 (and a half!!!) and am still in the middle of exams-If any of you know what the IB is you can identify with my position at the moment!!! Finished in 8 days though so that's exciting!

I live in Balwyn, drive a clapped out jag but at least it looks good

My passions are cars, playing sport and also being an armchair expert on every sport. I am rapt the racing carnival is over though.

Supported the dees since I was born, I was captured by my uncles and 'It's a Grand old flag' was the first song i EVER heard!

Favourite moment would have to be the 2000 qualifying final against Carlton, we were sitting down the end where Green, Bruce and Yze put on a show in the last quarter. Two weeks after that was pretty special too, with Farmer kicking 8.

Like everyone, I'm waiting for a premiership. Now that would be exciting

Fave players are Bruce and Yze

Before that I had followed my family and for the first 8 and 1/2 years of my life considered myself a Collingwood fan, I shudder to think what I would have been like if I hadn't seen the light and become a Demon.

G'day. I'm Dion. 25 years old and just finished uni after 7 long and excruciatingly painful years of study (as stated on another thread). Been a supporter of the dees all my life and go to the games every week with my brothers. Apparently I annoy the crap out of them. I can't help it. It's not in my nature to sit down quietly whilst watching football.

I did some work experience with the Demons medical staff earlier this year. This was an amazing experience and gave me some good insights into some of the injuries players carry through a season as well as how these niggles may affect their performances. And just so that people know, we have a top notch medical team looking after our boys.

Favourite Demons moment: Though I was only 8, I still have vivid memories of the 1988 preliminary final against Carlton at Waverley. After crying my way home following the '87 Jim Stynes debacle, the next year's win was sweet (even if we did end up embarrassing ourselves the next week).

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell
