Deebo’s problem is he doesn’t fit a mould so there is no real market value for him, and he wants top top dollars yet the style he plays doesn’t suit all teams. Going to be interesting.

And let's be honest, he's had 3 seasons and gets banged up a lot of the time. I know he's been amazing in big games but he's really still in the 'potential' category. 

I actually read Dez Bryant was calling for him to retract the trade request because he's probably not going to find a better offense fit than Kyle's scheme. Don't know, could be a week 4 trade for cut price the way it's going.

Guy at work reckons he will sit the season. I hope he doesn’t for the games sake, for the Rams sake I hope he retires 😂

Des Bryant speaks well there, niners are prob the best fit for him.

Rams/Cowboys set for a regular season game in Sydney in 2024

If they held the match on the same weekend as the Everest (mid October) that would be a decent weekend away!

The game starting at 12.30pm AEDT would be 8.30pm on the East Coast of the USA ... 5.30pm on the West Coast (once daylight saving time is operating here in Oz)

So Saturday Night Football beamed in from Australia ... or Sunday Night Football if they held the game on the Monday of the NSW Labour Day weekend (early October)

Maybe late December could fit ... they traditionally play a few NFL Saturday night games post the College Saturday schedule in late December

Whichever way they do it tickets to the game will be hard to get hold of!

And expensive. But I’m going to start saving now 😂

It will essentially be like having two Superbowl mornings in one year, more than happy with that!

@Gorgoroth@layzie@Dee Zephyr@Go the Biff@Clintosaurus  @JV7@DeeSpencer@Dappa Dan@titan_uranus@DemonDave@BDA

The practice games have started already!

Not that the result means much but the Jags went down to the Raiders on Friday

There's a full list of games next weekend including the Packers @ 49ers on Saturday ... 10.30am Oz time

If you've got the ESPN app, you'll find all the scheduled games

If I get a chance I'll try and find what the main talking points are going into the new season (apart from the latest installment of the Tom Brady show!)

Season proper kicks off on Friday Sept 9th (Bills @ Rams)

Happy to run with the tipping comp again.  We should get enough starters

Let's be honest, we could use a slight distraction right now.

No sweat layz, we'll beat the Blues next week and then our destiny will be in our own hands (which includes playing for a top 4 berth with a possible re-match against the Pies or Cats first up in the finals)

You've got to love a challenge and we'll be up for that challenge

The next win changes everything and we will bounce back ... the lads will be smarting about last night's result

You know what I want Macca? I want MFC to study the twist of fate manual of Gorg's Rams in 2021 eg Lose twice in the season to their bitter enemies,  then play them again in a final and beat them where it matters making Collingwood fans not eat, but choke on the biggest humble pie ever baked thus winning the war in the long run. I'm tired of black and white prevailing over red and blue. It's like Darth Vader always winning.

Looking forward to more TB12. Julio will work wonders.

Good outcomes don't come easy, layz

Might be just the wake up call we needed, losing last night.  We now know what's required to go deep in September.  It's crystal clear and there are no excuses.  If we were getting ahead of ourselves, that thinking will have disappeared

In an odd way, Ed's words have made sure that we now need to clam up and just get the job done.  I can see the team becoming totally focused now with no distractions

As for Collingwood, they are a dangrous opponent and it will be a challenge to beat them next time.  They are very efficient when they have the ball and they stifle the opposition when the opposition have the ball.  Eventually they win the ball back and they are off

They have close wins and they lose many of the stat categories but their efficiency wins out.  They don't waste their opportunities.  And they don't give up

Every time they win the ball back they've got a plan to score with that opportunity

A bit like when Tom Brady has the ball in his hands ... efficiency is the forte

Our coaching staff can learn from how the Pies play ... we need to be more efficient and not waste possessions

So we learn from the loss so it's not a total disaster (much like the Cats have learnt from their PF loss to us)

We're still in the game and we've still got the game to win big

    HORSING AROUND by George On The Outer

    Before the match it was claimed that Collingwood were a “one trick pony” side.  Well that one trick worked very well against Melbourne, as they extended their winning streak to 11 for the season. Meanwhile, the Demons continued to horse around with structures which simply haven’t been working. The one tall forward option with resting rucks failed yet again, in an almost identical manner to the game against the Bulldogs recently.  93 more possessions, 65 inside 50 entries 24 more than the op

    THE BUBBLE by The Oracle

    "I feel like we've got more than enough experience in close games. It'd be nice to win one by five or six goals and have that pulse lower a little bit late in games, but that's not our story." — Scott Pendlebury on the eve of his team’s forthcoming Round 21 game against Melbourne. When you read words such as these, you know it’s time for Melbourne fans to be humble. The old enemy is up and about while our mantle of invincibility has vanished into thin air. A Magpie win against the Demons wo

    ANCHORS AWEIGH! by George on the Outer

    So came the cry from the Dockers as the S.S. Fremantle set sail with the hopes of all of their supporters on board on the mighty ship. Their task was to do nothing more than to defeat the Melbourne side and a top four position on the ladder was assured. The problem for them was that their leaky boat came up against the mighty battleship - Team Demon and it didn’t take long after they left port for their vessel to develop a multitude of leaks. The first salvo was fired by First Officer

    SWEET SIXTEEN by KC from Casey

    The game was an uneven match up from the very beginning. The Casey Demons, representing an alignment between the reigning premiers Melbourne and the outer southeastern expansion area centred around a sprawling Cranbourne with its rapid population growth and the stand alone Northern Bullants from the inner north who sit at the foot of the VFL table. With 14 AFL listed players and a couple more having experience at the elite level opening with the breeze at their backs, the result was inevitable.

    THE HUNGER GAME by Whispering Jack

    The game may well have taken place a day short of ten weeks ago but the atmospherics surrounding Friday night’s match between Melbourne (then Narrm) and Fremantle are light years apart from those that prevailed when the teams last faced off the MCG in late autumn. On one hand, the Demons were in the midst of a 17 game winning spree that included a drought breaking premiership victory. On the other, the Dockers were coming off a six goal thrashing at Optus Stadium in teeming rain against a then s

    DOG-TIED by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons were extended early against rivals Footscray VFL in their matchup played in wet and greasy conditions at VU Whitten Oval on Saturday but, after establishing their authority in the second quarter, they were able to tie up their opponents at the end to maintain their undefeated run which now stands at 15.  The game began under grey threatening skies and the wet conditions turned the game into a tight slog with scoring kept down to a minimum. The Demons were held goalless agai

    DOG DAY by George On The Outer

    It is said that every dog has its day and that was certainly the case when the Western Bulldogs defeated Melbourne under the roof at the Docklands on Saturday night.   While the Dogs were certainly at the very top of their game, the same couldn’t be said of the Demons. All around the ground, dismal individual performances and dismal team performances were the order of the day.  Fans should have been worried right from the start as the game turned into a goal-fest. This is not their team’

    RAINING CATS & DOGS by Whispering Jack

    Despite winning their game in the Red Centre at the weekend, the consensus among the pundits is that Melbourne’s days in the sun are over. Ten rounds into the season, they were the competition’s top dogs and regarded virtually unbeatable but their recent form (three wins from the last seven games) has put them well below par, perilously clinging onto second spot on the ladder with storm clouds on the horizon. The air of invincibility that once surrounded them is gone and the Demons face a t

    THE KOZZY SHOW by George On The Outer

    Q: Melbourne is playing Port Adelaide at Traeger Park, Alice Springs and once again, it doesn’t have a properly functioning forward line — so from where were the goals going to come?   A: Kysaiah Pickett.     In a one man show in front of his adoring fans, he racked up six majors to give the Demons the edge in the game and to finally run out winners by 14 points.     The result could well have been very different without his efforts with Melbourne failing to score a major

    SWITCHING ON by The Oracle

    We can’t take anything for granted, can we? After all, the Melbourne that took Port Adelaide for a long ride around the Adelaide Oval in early April of this year and switched off late in the game is finding it difficult of late to switch back on. Apart from a stellar display against the Brisbane Lions a fortnight ago, the Demons have laboured during the middle part of the season and, with a tough draw ahead of them, have reached a critical stage of the season after their first flag in decad

    STORIES by KC from Casey

    There were more than a few stories about Friday night’s game between the Casey Demons and Geelong at GMHBA Stadium. The first was one of complete domination in the first quarter (six goals to nil), ascendency in the last (five to two) and the second was about the void in between (zero to seven). The third was about how, in the end, the Demons retained their unbeaten record despite the hell of a scare they had on the rainswept spaces of the Cattery. However, the story that folk might be

    NIPPED by George on the Outer

    Melbourne’s twenty eight point loss to Geelong down at Taxpayer Funded Park provided plenty of cat-nip for the Geelong fans and their team.  After all, the Cats go away thinking they have now got the Demons sorted after the embarrassments heaped upon them last season and their taste of this cat-nip will get even stronger in the coming weeks, courtesy of the AFL draw which gives them three more home games at the same venue in the six remaining rounds.  Yet Melbourne, despite this loss
