I wonder if the price of bananas will drop before you know who does you know what

I hope so as I really miss my bananas on my muesli for breakfast

They will definately drop before we win at KP.

Had some in Indonesia last week.

After four serves guess what?

they are only bananas.

Absence makes the heart grow fonder!

I hear you. This season is so dead to me.

I'm going to go to the games (not going to Geelong this week), but the interest and motivation is non existent.

Also I can't eat bananas so I'm a cheap date :lol:

It is heading that way for me too Jaded.

By Monday 15/8 I will be thinking of the coming NBL season.

Wonder how the Tigers are going to perform with their new player list?

Looks a little more hope there for me!

I hope not Redleg if we do it really says to me that all hope is gone.

If we prefer a player who has been out for eight weeks with a leg injury

to other fit players then we are truely desperate and have little confidence in our list.

I have a niggling feeling. Don't know why but sometimes I think we wont see much more of Flash in red and blue.

I can answer it even simpler for you, " that thread is full of sh-t" and basically consists of personal attacks on other demonlanders and a player. None of us need to waste our time adding to or being part of it.

Very honourable ... but watch your actions, they could be interpreted a different way.

Edit thank-you daisycutter for picking up my error.

I agree

A few weeks back I suggested we should trade him while he still has some currency.

Nothing has happened to change my mind.

Coach wants our player payments evenly spread.

Now if I had posted this on the other thread, you can imagine all hell breaking loose.

Hmmn, I've wondered the same since about 2 weeks after the Edishat game.

No problems. I wasn't suggesting you were simple. But I accept I have a communication problem around here.

Maybe we just come from different worlds ... ah well ... bit like life really. If we were all exactly the same ... it would be so boring.

Interesting that he was sure that Brisbane was losing one of Rich, Leuenberger or Clark... until Brisbane announced that both Rich and Leuenberger had signed on.

The bloke has NFI.

He knows as much as the bog standard BigFooty poster.

Good gig, getting on the Footy Show as the newsbreaker and then getting a fair amount of it wrong.

Add a few crumbs, everybody's leftovers, the best young players in a weak draft pool and coaches who peaked before or around the turn of the century in a heartland where nobody really cares about the game and you have the makings of the next three wooden spoons right there. The GWS Giants loom as the AFL's next failed club after University, South Melbourne and Fitzroy.

Strong words Jack I would agree with only one problem.

The AFL will pour money into this for 20+ years

At the expense of Melbourne based teams like North, Tigers. Dees etc.

It will get up even if they have to lose a couple of Victorian teams in the process.

It will be interesting to see of the 5000 average attendance they will get, how many are free tickets.

    QUEENS BIRTHDAY BLOCKBUSTER by Bananabender

    A little known fact for Victorians is that Queenslanders don’t celebrate the Queen's Birthday in June but rather in October. The scheduled date on this year’s calendar is 5 October, 2020. However, I have a suggestion for Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and that is to move the date forward a month and a half to this Saturday so that the coming clash of traditional rivals, Melbourne and Collingwood, continues a longstanding tradition of our game — the Queen’s Birthday Blockbuster.

    THE TORRENS THUMPING 2.0 by George on the Outer

    Once again the banks of Adelaide’s Torrens River witnessed the Melbourne Football Club handing out another on-field thumping to its opponent. This time the hapless victim was North Melbourne and given it was only the club’s second win against them since 2007, it was a very satisfying outcome. The Demons got off to a slow start once again, looking listless from their four day break, a situation that wasn’t helped by Sam Weideman and Christian Petracca missing easy set shots. At the first bre

    THE 2020 EQUATION by Whispering Jack

    The 2020 equation is simple for the Melbourne Football Club – it must keep winning and it must take some big scalps during the second half of the season without dropping games against the lesser lights. The Demons have gone down this season to the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th teams on the ladder including twice by less than a goal in games that could easily have gone the other way. Against that, they have beaten 11th, 13th, 14th and 18th and though they thumped the Crows during the week, the

    THE TORRENS THUMPING by George on the Outer

    THE TORRENS THUMPING - LEAVING THE DEMONS BEHIND That headline might lead a reader to think that Melbourne had lost badly in Adelaide but no!  It was actually the MFC which left it’s demons from the previous week behind as it applied the blowtorch to the Crows in the final quarter of their match at the Adelaide Oval and went on their merry way to record a 51 point win before their biggest crowd of the year (even if they were mainly hostile). Much had been made in the media about t

    STATE OF DEESASTER by the Oracle

    Melbourne’s circus caravan rolls into Adelaide on Wednesday night, an event that will put shivers up the spine of every Crows’ supporter as they look directly into the face of disaster. The flakey Demons left their home town a month ago and proceeded to rough up the Gold Coast Suns and Hawthorn in Sydney before moving on to the sunny Queensland where they missed by a bee’s diaphragm against the more or less local second-on-ladder Brisbane Lions. Then, they had to butter up against the top t

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    In a dismal display against Port Adelaide, Melbourne showed it had learnt nothing from their previous week’s loss to Brisbane. Port, in contrast, after losing to St.Kilda, addressed their failings, and as a result made the Demons look like a second-rate side.  Melbourne failed to score a goal in the first quarter, and the first time it seriously troubled the goal umpire was saved until a minute before half-time.  Did it get any better?  No with their meagre three goals for the sec

    DESPERATION OF THE MOMENT by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s recent win against Hawthorn highlighted how important Max Gawn’s ruck domination is for the team. A week later however, that domination continued but its effect was totally blunted by the Brisbane Lions midfield and, as a consequence, what could have been an easy win over a leading AFL contender turned into a disappointing but close loss and a sense of desperation now looms over the club as the halfway mark of the season approaches. This week’s opponent in Port Adelaide also und

    THE FOUR POINT FAIL by George on the Outer

    Melbourne went down by 4 points in a thrilling finish against Brisbane, but they failed by more than the 4 points.     They also failed to score the 4 points necessary to keep them in the race for the finals, and now find themselves sitting 6 points outside the top 8, but effectively 2 games outside (even though they have a game in hand).   The Demons had more than enough opportunities to win.  Six very easy shots on goal failed to bother the goal umpire with a major and ultimate

    NORTH OF THE BORDER PART 2 by The Oracle

    The travelling COVID circus moves north of the border yet again and, unless at some time in the near future, Papua New Guinea opens its borders, this could be the last time this phenomenon happens. And as fortune would dictate, the resurgent Demons are walking directly into the sights of the locals from the bright lights of Brizvegas to Carrara - the scene of some long-forgotten (and deservedly so) battles with one of the Lions’ former incarnations, namely, the Brisbane Bears. But unli

    ON THE NOSE by George on the Outer

    One of the Hawthorn Football Club’s valued sponsors is Azep® Nasal Spray and given the thrashing handed out to the Hawks in today’s game, it would appear that they need a huge supply of the sponsor’s product because they are simply on the nose. This condition was caused by the sheer dominance of the Demons, led magnificently by skipper Max Gawn with 27 hitouts and 22 disposals including two clearances. Around him in the middle were Christian Petracca with 29 touches, Clayton Oliver (also on

    THE PREMIER LEAGUE by Whispering Jack

    So the new man under the pump is Clarko, which demonstrates how sad but predictable the football media is these days. In an age where each AFL team’s form can be topsy turvy and unpredictability is the order of the day, the coach of a team that has played five out of the top six teams from the previous season and sits with a 3/3 win loss record is this week’s whipping boy.   This comes admittedly on the back of a bad fortnight from the Hawks who in recent years have exhibited an enormous

    SUNSMART by George on the Outer

    If you don’t want to get sunburnt, you follow the Sunsmart rules.  Melbourne took the advice and with their season on the line, avoided getting burnt by the Gold Coast Suns, with a gripping 17 point win. It was a match that could have gone either way, with the sides within a kick of each other for all but the final minutes of the final quarter. Melbourne had stretched the lead earlier in the game to 18 points, but that quickly evaporated to a neck and neck race to the finish.  Finally,
