i can see your logic here redleg

i wouldn't be disappointed to see aaron get a run (if fit enough)

he's too good a player not to be given a chance and he might have been carrying an injury earlier in the year

he's one of the few genuine game breakers we have and saturday's conditions should suit him fine

Sorry DC I do not agree with you.

I think this is a problem that has been with the Dees for too long.

Guys like AD have to learn to earn their spot.

IMO he has not done that all year before the injury.

It is not as though he has only been out of a week or two.

Again IMO we have been let done all year by our more senior players.

Don't drop a kid for him.

Let him play at Casey this weekend and get some fitness and touch back.

I think the poor guy is addicted to that thread.

Try as he might he cannot kick it!

I know how he feels I have a similar problem with single malt.

but I am not really trying to kick that one!

come on rpfc grit your teeth and don't click on you know what.

I just can't do it.

I'm not strong enough.

I post, OD. So posters like you, DC, and Redleg don't have to.

I agree, let him find his feet at Casey, same as all other injuries coming back.

I really don't have much to contribute here but I thought I would just add to the thread......

and I can see your logic too old dee

however we need to get Aaron back in form and I thought Darwin being his home town might provide the right spark

yeah I know he probably doesn't deserve it and we need to send messages to senior players etc

Not sure but I think I started getting bored at about 8-10 episodes and stopped watching. Hopefully you will hang in there longer.

Don't want to shock anyone but I haven't seen a Harry Potter movie or read one of the books. Tonight I taped two HP movies on foxtel but note that they are pretty recent. Will I ruin it if I watch the later movies without seeing the earlier ones?

PS. I believe that in one of the books, Harry is made a huge offer by a new school to enrol with them and leave his schoolmates of the last 2 years. No one knows if Harry will leave as he said he will leave it until the end of the school year to decide. His current school has made an offer to keep him, which includes a new desk and bigger food serves in the school tuck shop, but that is way below the offer made by the new school, which includes a chauffeur driven ride to school each day and an exemption from Maths and Physics for the whole year. Apparently the education department is doing everything they can to get Harry to move and it is really pissing off his schoolmates. They have started a blog and are up to 60 pages of posts. The suspense is driving everyone mad. Some people think they know what he is doing while others are insisting they don't. Even the local paper, radio and TV have got in on the act. Can't wait until we find out at the end of the book.

PPS. Apparently the new school is in a crap neighbourhood where no one would know Harry and it is far from his family. Now the education department has said they will compensate Harry's old school if he goes with a new library book but the school will no doubt want at least 2 books.

I suggest mowing with the grain it makes for a nice look.

Great advice. Also its best to pick up the dog droppings before mowing - especially in Winter.

More news in Harry Potter land. The education department has now said that Harry can't receive the gifts even though another school is giving their star pupil the same sort of gifts. Even someone outside the school is banned from giving him the gifts. Latest news is that a headmaster at another school is being replaced by his deputy headmaster but he still wants to be headmaster and may change schools. The president of his school council is running around trying to stir up trouble with all of the other schools so that people don't concentrate on his school. The education department is really stuffing up the education system.

Went for a walk this morning and it was foggy and cold and I was freezing. By the time I was coming back home the sun was out and I was boiling. You have got to love that Melbourne weather, it's so much nicer than the weather they have in Blacktown.

Benno I have not read it for 30 years but back then I found it very heavy going.

Now that might just mean that HP is aimed at kids.

I'm slightly embarrassed to admit that I've read all the books and some twice. I think the advice to see the first film before watching the others is good, you'll understand some of the infrastructure behind what your watching, but much better to watch them in sequence. If you watched the 6th film in the series "cold" you'd have no idea of what's going on. Get a copy of the first book, it's short and you'll read it in 3 hours or so. That's the best introduction.

If you don't like fantasy you won't like Harry, but having said that you've told me that you think MFC will win a flag in our lifetime so perhaps you do (believe in fantasy).

Your PS is actually brilliant and could so easily be built into the characters and things in the book. Harry is a brilliant "seeker " in a sport called quididich and would be sort by many other teams but his loyalty to his friends and headmaster would mean he'd never leave.

If you've not read the Hobbit or LOTR's they are both great reads but again, you've got to like fantasy.

Quidditch is a fictional Wizarding sport played in the Harry Potter book series. It is described as an extremely rough, but very popular, semi-contact sport, played by wizards and witches around the world. Matches are played between two teams of seven players riding flying broomsticks, using four balls and six elevated ring-shaped goals. In the Harry Potter universe, Quidditch holds a fervent following similar to the position that association football holds as a globally popular sport.

The sport is featured in every Harry Potter book except for the seventh, when Harry Potter is preoccupied in fighting Voldemort. Harry plays an important position for his house team at Hogwarts as the seeker. Regional and international competitions are mentioned throughout the series. In Goblet of Fire, Quidditch at Hogwarts is cancelled for the Tri-Wizard Tournament, but Harry and the Weasleys attend the Quidditch World Cup. In addition, Harry uses his Quidditch skills to capture a golden egg from a dragon (in the Tri-Wizard Tournament), to capture a flying key in Philosopher's Stone, and on two key occasions in Deathly Hallows—getting hold of Ravenclaw's Diadem, and during the final fight with Voldemort—the "unerring skill of the Seeker" is vitally useful to him in snatching an object out of the air.

The sport has been adapted under the name of "Muggle Quidditch" (or simply "Quidditch") to the real world. Since at least 2003, Harry Potter fans have played ball games resembling the Harry Potter sport. In the United States, teams from more than 200 colleges are affiliated with the International Quidditch Association and play tournaments. Furthermore, high-level Quidditch tournaments are a mainstay of Harry Potter Conventions, such as Nimbus 2003, The Witching Hour, and, most recently, Infinitus 2010.

    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

    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.

    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?

    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

    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.

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up.
