Guest hangon007

Welcome to this thread. Feel free to post here 100 times but try and change the topics.

PS. Obviously no one on the other thread has seen the Age article today on you know who's knee.

Thanks I will read it with much interest ... but will I believe it? ... just depends on who wrote it and why ... & do I trust their "source" ....

Thanks again for the tip.

PS I heard that Dale Thomas has chronic OP ... that only thing that can fix it is a Collingwood jumper ... :)

45 Is it me or the computer. I follow all your steps and then press the "insert link" and then "add reply" on Demonland. It comes up but you can't click on it. Do you know what is wrong.

This is how it looks when you insert a webpage. Use what's written above, but change www.google.com to whatever webpage you're linking to, keep the parentheses et al. And change "my link" to whatever you want to appear as the link.

(To make it a link, you just get rid of that space before the u in url)

Thanks 45, finally got there. Pity about today.

I would like to know what the Demonland record is (in milliseconds) for the "Changes for Next Week' thread to appear after the finish of a game.

Also, what is the betting (time in minutes after 2:15 Monday) for a 'Should we get Andrew Lovett' thread to appear, and who will start it.

I would like to know what the Demonland record is (in milliseconds) for the "Changes for Next Week' thread to appear after the finish of a game.

Pretty sure in a game earlier this year, a thread started early in the third quarter...I could be wrong, but it was definitely well before the end of the match.

Also, what is the betting (time in minutes after 2:15 Monday) for a 'Should we get Andrew Lovett' thread to appear, and who will start it.

$2.20 first time poster

$4.00 ADC

$6.00 Range Rover

$20.00 Any other rookie poster

Asking for time in minutes after 2:15 Monday is a bit much maurie.

But I can tell you it won't be long after the 'We should get Brendan Fevola' thread, but before the 'Install the Reverend as coach' thread.

Is that before or after the "Should we get Neil Craig" thread?

Before. But after the "FCS just get Mick" thread.

edit: Choko just started the Neil Craig thread..that didn't take long.

I'm getting really [censored]. That other thread has got to 24 pages and here we are languishing on only 6. Start posting people, this is a real challenge. There must be so much more to life than discussing "you know who".

A mate of mine did the art-work (the wall not the bodies) in a new film clip by Gotye called "Somebody that I used to know"

. It is a fantastic song but now I can't get it out of my head. The same thing happened when I heard Paul Kelly sing How to make gravy. I love the song but it is driving me nuts!!

Lately I have been enjoying Baby I Love Your Way by Big Mountain and dare I say it, Valerie by Amy Winehouse.

Funny how it seems to happen to us regularly. Last week Rioli, Sewell and Lewis came back for Hawks and won them the game while we lost Jurrah and you know who. This week Ottens, Ling, Stevie J and maybe Mooney are back for the Cats, not that they wouldn't beat us without them. Stars come back against us and are best on ground and we seem to lose a player or two from the selected lineup on the day.

Pods and some other senior player are 50/50 for this week. Pods could be rested and out for Mooney.

Being partial to the odd banana smoothie, I was aware of the hike in prices, as I have been told often by the cafe's that they are not doing them as they are too expensive to buy. Suppose the good thing is that my diet won't suffer as they must be quite fattening.

Hurricanes and banana plantations don't co-exist well...

That's the issue.

    WASH, RINSE, SPIN, REPEAT! by George On The Outer

    Although the Demons got over the line in their must win final round game against the hapless Bombers, they ensured it was Groundhog Day for their supporters who well remember what happened three years ago (although, this time they at least enjoyed the success of victory). Melbourne had its customary start dominating play and having plenty of chances in front of goal, only to find itself down on the scoreboard at the first change. Inaccurate kicking, particularly from set shots would have pu

    THE LUCK OF THE DRAW by Whispering Jack

    The long awaited clash between Melbourne and Essendon is almost upon us. Thirty-seven rounds of AFL football have passed by since the two clubs met on a balmy early April night last year in a game that produced a high scoring shootout at the MCG with the Bombers prevailing by 18 points. It was their only meeting for 2019 and happened at a time when the pandemic was something on the far distant horizon. Several months later when the 2019 season ended, the AFL issued the first of its fixtures

    THERE’S STILL A HEARTBEAT by George on the Outer

    When bottom side Adelaide scrapped together a win over the Giants last week, a tiny glimmer of hope opened up for the Demons’ finals chances. The patient was in intensive care but not quite finished — there was a faint pulse, a heart beating ever so slightly but was it enough when two more wins and other results were needed to fall their way? The first step was the resuscitation of a team that had lost its last two matches against sides then sitting fifteenth and sixteenth on the ladder. On

    THE FINAL HUMILIATION by The Oracle

    On Sunday, the Melbourne Football Club that won three consecutive games by in excess of 50 points last month returns to the Gabba, the scene of the last of those victories which was a 56 point drubbing of Collingwood. The Demons got off to a good start and won every quarter with a ruthless and powerful brand of football. They kicked 16 goals that day, their accuracy in front of goal a tribute to the skills the put on display throughout the afternoon and evening. In the four matches playe

    GIVEN THE OLD HEAVE HO’ by George on the Outer

    Fremantle gave Melbourne the old heave ho’ from playing finals in 2020, in conditions that the Demons yet again failed to handle.   With the whole season on the line and the need to win to stay in contention for finals, what the fans saw was much the same as they have been witnessing so many times before — a complete debacle and capitulation against a side that sat 15th on the ladder before the game.     Promises made after the loss to the 16th placed Sydney Swans were rendered h

    GETTING THE HEAVE HO by Bananabender

    The ute barely made it up to Cairns in time for us to check into the motel, fling a cane toad out the bathroom. and head over to Cazaly’s Stadium where we took up our position on the wing. There, we saw a completely different Melbourne to the one we watched on the screen only a few nights earlier from Alice Springs. This lot wore similar colours and Maxy dominated the ruck but the similarities ended there - the Demons were simply dreadful against the Swans. They started sluggishly, were spe

    A CLANGER IN CAIRNS by George on the Outer

    Having fought back into finals contention, the Demons had it all before them when facing a lowly Sydney in Cairns.  But in typical Melbourne fashion, they threw away the opportunity to cement their spot in the eight with a clanger of a game.  Right from the start, there was little to enthuse from the Melbourne players, who appeared to think that they only had to turn up, enjoy the North Queensland sun, and take away the four points.  Compared with the furious ground wide pressure of the

    TEN MINUTES LATE by Whispering Jack

    The late Norm Smith, who played in four Melbourne premierships and coached another six, was a strong disciplinarian. Known as the Red Fox for his auburn hair and his cunning, Smith was a man of a different age to the here and now. Born during the Great War, he survived the Spanish Flu Pandemic, grew up in depression times, played mostly through the Second World War and its aftermath and coached in a period of rebuilding and recovery to a time of prosperity. Smith’s success was built on team

    SAINTS HELL IN DEES HEAVEN by GOTO

    The last of this year’s indigenous games was played in the red heart of the country and could well have determined Melbourne’s finals aspirations but it was St Kilda that had its top four hopes dashed after a nail-biting finish in Alice Springs which saw them unceremoniously marched out of the position in football heaven occupied by them for much of this season. It all came down in the end to a goal-line decision as to whether a freakish shot by Christian Petracca was touched and the goal u

    DO OR DIE by The Oracle

    Melbourne is, not for the first time, paying for lapses in matches whereby the club leaks multiple goals without answer and which usually cost the club in those all-important eight point games as it did last week against the Western Bulldogs which replaced the Demons in the AFL top eight. And this week, they come up against a team that reputedly plays in the same mode as the Bulldogs but has been able to prevail over better opponents than Melbourne. It’s not that the Demons are out of form

    GIVE THE DOGS A BONE by George on the Outer

    The winner of the game is in the top eight and the loser out. Had Melbourne won, it would have consigned the Bulldogs season to the scrapheap given their remaining fixture which still includes a bye. The Demons led at half-time but they gave the Dogs a bone which was willingly accepted — they notched 6 goals in the third quarter and dumped the Demons out of the eight. This game simply saw all the bad habits return for Melbourne players.  When they serve up dinky kicks, dinky handballs, litt

    FRENZY by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club should hand out an award to the person who came up with the concept of the 20 day football frenzy the football world experienced from Round 9 to the completion of Round 12 on Monday. When the AFL fixture was moved into a state of perpetual motion, things changed so quickly that it was difficult to fathom exactly what was happening to the competition but the Demons have been one of the beneficiaries to date. The flogging the team received at the hands of Port Adel
