You think I get Youtube access at work? Come on now.

I barely get Demonland access :rolleyes:

They decided to block internet shopping sites too, until they realised we work at a fashion company and they were facing an employee strike. Good times.

Well don't forget to check it when you leave the Prison (I mean Work) The Video i think is exactly what you need to see!!

Range Rover are you skiing?

I'd like to commend the AFL on their fixturing this year. Giving Melbourne a bye, then an interstate 'home' game at the height of the ski season is most welcome. We can head to Buller for 2-3 weeks and catch our 'home' game on tv from our chalets.

Rumour has it once we win 6 flags in a row, and Gary Lyon is the CEO of the NINE network, the AFL will in 2020 move the "traditional Anzac day" clash between The Dees and Gold Coast to the newly constructed Hotham stadium. Vlad will say: "Sure its cold there but our latest expansion team plays in Singapore and its bloody hot there."

I like the idea that we could be a power club in the filth mould and start dictating to the AFL.

Surely ,when Kaspersky and Melbourne want to "grow the brand" we could do a few home games in Moscow .

If we have the right people in place then we would literally never lose -our Mafia friends would simply not allow it .

The chains are on the car ready to go and hopefully our maid has given our Hotham chalet a clean-up prior to our arrival tomorrow.

Our son Ben is bringing up a few of his Xavier College mates. Next week it's Becky and her group from Lauriston.

I missed the season here last year as we decided to head over to Banff in Canada. Just couldn't stand to be in town while the Dees were losing.

My three year old son just scared the living sheet out of me by secretly lurking in the (very dark) bathroom playing with the glow stick he got at a birthday party today. Jesus effing Christ. I'm not certain which of us was more surprised when he came wandering out as I wandered in, but I'm pretty sure it was me.

Spot on DC I just had to slap myself.

I was about to look at the thread.

But the moment of stupidy passed.

With no game this weekend I get to continue the brain washing of my Grand daughter.

She is only 6 months old but you have to start early otherwise her Grand mother might win the battle.

I think my best chance is a MFC dynasty starting about 2013 for 10 years.

Do I have a snow flake chance in Hell?

I hear the 2012 draft is a ripper. 30+ 'sure hit' players.

I'm so excited that the Demons will be well placed to mine that draft with numerous end-of-first-round picks.

Poor GWS gets a frayed dishrag of a draft to work with. Bwa HA HA HA HA HAAAAA

Scoop Junior wants to and if Mrs. Redleg has no objections I will be there. You can tell who runs my home. Will probably bring KC from Casey if I come and then also WJ will most likely tag along.

Yeah, I'll come but only if, on the way in to the ground (after swinging past you know who's place to pay appropriate homage), we have a nice legal discussion on this subject matter.

Humberto Leal Garcia is a cause celebre in Mexico today.

In 1994, he kidnapped 16-year-old Adria Sauceda, raped her with a large stick, and bludgeoned her to death with a piece of asphalt.

Leal's brother has stated that Leal came home with blood on him saying he had killed a girl. Two of the trial witnesses were present when Leal's brother made these statements.

The police searched Leal's house. They seized a blouse which contained several blood stains, hair and fibres. This blouse was later identified as belonging to Adria.

Other DNA evidence was found on the underwear Leal was wearing that night. That evidence consisted of blood as well as bodily fluid. The DNA test did not preclude Adria's blood type from the evidence tested.

Leal was found guilty of the murder and executed overnight after President Obama sought to intervene and prevent the execution. Read about it here -

Texas executes death row Mexican national despite US government call for reprieve

Even the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay has entered the fray by saying the US breached international law by executing Leal.

UN human rights, get it?

In the past decade, human rights violators have murdered millions of people on the face of this earth and the worst of them have been represented by nations like Sudan, North Korea, Cuba and Libya. Recently, Syria came within a bee's diaphragm of getting on the United Nations Human Rights Commission.

If you commit murder and rape in the US you have a better chance of getting help from the UN than if you're a starving Darfurian.

And we worry about whether a 20 year old kid is going to leave his home in Berwick and move to Rooty Hill?

Fair dinkum!

You are treading on thin ice with that line in this thread WJ.

I won't be in a better mood tomorrow as my favourite horse Briefed, who was running 2nd at Flemington today and was probably going to win the sprint final, bled, then was eased out of the race and will be banned from racing for 3 months.

My understanding is that the only business they ever do is horsetrading so I reckon there's a good chance they'll deal with your case.

And if you ask nicely and contribute some hard currency, they might get you that horse back that you didn't want to sell and is now winning major races interstate.

    ORWELLIAN by Whispering Jack

    Please permit me to begin this rather tragic pathetic preview of Melbourne’s forthcoming game against Fremantle with some personal reflections.   Two years ago, we had visitors staying with us who are all sports fans so we arranged tickets for the entire family for the Melbourne vs Fremantle game at the MCG. The Dockers were struggling at the time while the Demons were on the up and up so I was fairly confident about the outcome. Naturally, we all left the ground bitterly disappointed.

    PANTSED BY THE PIES by George on the Outer

    A 41 point loss to Collingwood, combined with yet another meagre output from the Melbourne forwards, saw the Demons pantsed by the Collingwood in the Queens Birthday match. For the nth week in a row, Melbourne failed to produce a score that would trouble most sides - it’s inaccuracy alone was again enough to seal the outcome. If that final score of 7.15 were 15.7, the game would have been very different. That sort of output was exactly a repeat of the previous week against Adelaide, when fo

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    It is truly amazing what a difference eight days can make in the life and times of a football club. It was a little over a week ago that the Casey Demons side were literally crushed into submission by the Werribee Tigers at Avalon Airport Oval. The losing margin in that game was not huge but the way they struggled to produce and cohesion in their play was obvious for all to see.  On Sunday at Casey Fields as part of heritage week, the team wore the Springvale FC jumper and made its own turn

    TEN YEARS AFTER by Whispering Jack

    There are many who would argue that Melbourne’s current woes go back a full decade to their Queens Birthday engagement of 2009 when the Demons selected a young VCE student Jack Watts to make his debut on the MCG in front of what was expected to be the club’s biggest crowd for a game described as the club’s “grand final in June”. That was the way of the world for the Dean Bailey coached Demons. The critics were skeptical of Melbourne’s decision to put a wet behind the ears schoolboy (albeit

    TOP END HEADING SOUTH by George on the Outer

    The Demons headed north for their annual game in Darwin, but the disappointing outcome could only mean they are heading south with the all too familiar failings happening again. A Sam Weideman mark and kick for goal with only 30 seconds remaining in the match could have won it for the Demons, but the kick slid sideways and the team went down by two points.  Sam may have been devastated, but the fact that the team could only kick 1 goal 8 behinds in the final quarter lays the blame at the fe

    MAYDAY by KC from Casey

    There’s not very much that can be said of the lacklustre performance of the Casey Demons at Avalon Airfield Oval against the Werribee Tigers on Saturday other than that it was woeful. There were however, a few small rays of hope for Demon fans, the main one being the display of defender Steven May from injury and to a lesser extent, Kade Kolodjashnij’s return after two months recovering from the effects of concussion. May was in stellar form down back, taking intercept marks, disposing of t

    POINT OF NO RETURN by the Oracle

    Conventional wisdom says that a club reaches the point of no return in the AFL competition if it has won less than four matches at the mid point of the season.  What this means for Melbourne is that in order for it to remain in the race for a top-eight position, it must start winning games now. Moreover, It's not enough to win the next game but it must also start stringing wins together to make up for its deficit in both wins and percentage.  With so much at stake there will be no excu

    A REAL DOWNER by KC from Casey

    When Sam Weideman kicked his third goal at the midpoint of the second quarter of Casey’s game at Downer Oval , Point Gellibrand on Sunday, he put his team 26 points ahead of the goalless Seagulls. Buoyed by the return from injury of Weideman and a number of other AFL-listed Melbourne players including Jordan Lewis, Mitch Hannan, and Jay Kennedy Harris and an impressive start to Jake Lever’s second game on return from his ACL surgery, the Demons were seemingly on top of the world. Lewis and

    ANOTHER GIANT PROBLEM by George on the Outer

    On top of its injury problems Melbourne ran into an “in-form” GWS Giants at the MCG in a game which, apart from a final quarter junk-time spree served to highlight the club’s current problems. There’s a virtually non-existent forward line; a plethora of VFL standard players, who might be getting plenty of game experience but most will simply not be up to AFL standard; an inability to kick straight and an ability to waste simple opportunities so that they mustered up only one goal in the fir

    GIANT HEADACHE by The Oracle

    It seems so long ago that Melbourne took an unchanged line up into a game on the MCG against the Greater Western Sydney Giants and cleaned them up to the tune of 45 points.  In truth, the event occurred literally half a season ago in the final home and away round of the 2018 season and marked the Demons’ return to the finals with more triumphs to come in the weeks ahead. Of course, back then, it was the Giants who were wracked with injuries as they stumbled into the finals series facing the

    LANDSLIDE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons enjoyed the better of their first half against Port Melbourne on Saturday but fell away badly after half time to lose by 43 points. The Borough enjoyed the early break with the game’s opening two goals but the Demons took control to go out to an 8 point lead at quarter time, an advantage that it held for most of the second term until a late goal to the visitors clawed the lead back to a point.  The Casey ruck of Braydon Preuss and Liam Wale-Buxton were on top for most

    SHOULD HAVE ... COULD HAVE by George on the Outer

    West Coast finally put the nail in the Demons 2019 season coffin with a 16 point win, but it was a game that Melbourne should have, could have, but didn’t win. Once again woeful, truly woeful work in the forward line, both kicking for goal and the lazy, cheap efforts of some let the side down. A solitary goal in the final quarter and only 9 goals from 24+ scoring opportunities was the costly difference in the game. The selectors, once again, made a critical error in not selecting
