No, but they have hippogriff's.

I'm getting the feeling you're out of your depth!!

A Hippogriff (also spelled Hippogryph and Hippogryphe, Italian: Ippogrifo) is a legendary creature, supposedly the offspring of a griffin and a mare.

Does it look a bit like this?

My life is more fullfilled now that THE thread has gone.

Any chance of similar for pro Malthouse threads?

Or is it all about The Lord Of The Wings?

Noble Game at 12.45. Probably a bit short this one at 2000m but will run again at Caulfield on 30th over 2400m and that will be his day.

Disappointing night for us, Aussie appears to have ended his AFL career and the Bombers come from 6 goals down to win,after Johncock who was starring, went off, Then the Crows lost another player and played one short for the rest of the game.

Our favourite female TV reporter on 10 news said that Aussie wasn't returning to Melbourne this year and wanted to play for a local Darwin team, the Thunder, next year. He will be delisted if that happens.

Can't believe it, we are 172 posts ahead of the new TS thread. That should last about 30 minutes.

Thanks...I've only just caught up on the Aussie thread.

Prior to this I thought we're a bit thin on the small forward role. Even more now given this news. Maric will need some competition me thinks.

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.

Says something about me perhaps!

i did too the first time i read it - i spent the whole time working out who was who and what was what etc etc etc.

by the end of the 2nd read and the 3rd (yeah ive read it more than 3 times) it was an absolute joy and i could see what a masterpiece it was.

HP is teenager stuff... not that i mind that, i just finished smashing the last of matthew reilys books. they are flat out!

Bit unfair. Before Johncock got injured they were 6 goals up and he was their best player. Then they lost another player and played 1 short. You can't win playing short these days.

It was, but if you lose 2 players , like the Crows,did, you are then short 1 player. The rule helps clubs that lose 1 player as only 21 players on rotation are available to play.

I am a little embarrassed to raise this here as it originates on the other thread, but I won't post there, though I think it is an interesting point.

Robbie F raised the issue that if you know who doesn't sign with GWS this year, then GWS, as they have offered him a contract can't take another uncontracted player this year.He said that if we signed up everyone we wanted to keep while you know who is deciding whether to leave, they couldn't make an offer to anyone else, until the decision was made. If we secure our boys then no one is available to them to grab this year.

I don't think that is correct. I don't think they are limited in how many offers they can make, but only in how many they can actually take under this uncontracted player poaching rule. They are limited to getting 1 player but I don't know of any limit on offers that can be made. What Robbie is saying is that if we sign up everyone we want to keep and then you know who stays, we will not lose anyone to them that we want to retain and that the club may be using the next few weeks to do this. Can someone clarify this.

As the posts rise on that other thread they are back to fighting each other again. I wonder how long it will take till it is locked, that will make 3 so far.

Looks like the anti-Scully thread has sprung a leak - the skipper appears to have put an axe through the hull.

Bruce's call during the Adelaide game Friday night suggesting that the reason Graham Johnsock was nicknamed "Stiffy" was due to his unusual running style. Made me giggle a little.

    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

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    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. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    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? As a consequence, the person re

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    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

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    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. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    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. That should never have happ
