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.

yeah i wasnt watching the game...

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

I have the diver down there doing repairs. The thread is still ship shape though.

It's very tough to resist the Siren's Scully call and not steer the ship to the rocks.

Redouble the crews bees wax and have them tighten those knots.

THE AFL will press ahead with plans to set up its own player agent system, despite admitting it will be a conflict of interest.

The AFL wants to establish a separate body to act on behalf of young players before they are drafted and can be approached by accredited agents.

The move is likely to set the league on a collision course with the current player agents.

AFL boss Andrew Demetriou said there would be no issue with the league managing young players and trying to develop the game at the same time, even if there was some conflict.

"Of course it's a conflict but I think people have got to be aware that there are legitimate times where conflicts of interest can occur, as long as they're managed properly, in accordance with good corporate governance," Demetriou said

"Of course it's a conflict but I think people have got to be aware that there are legitimate times where conflicts of interest can occur, as long as they're managed properly, in accordance with good corporate governance," Demetriou said

In other words Demetriou is saying "who cares, it's our competition, we'll see to it to do things the way we want it to be done to achieve a competitive competition.

We'll nurture the right talent with our own internal player managers and therefore ensure that new clubs succeed where applicable to ensure maximum tv rights, more money and a stronger competition against rival codes. Therefore ensure superiority of sport in Australia.

But don't worry about the established clubs, they'll survive. They'll just have to be more prudent in their recruiting and spending now that we've made this decision"

How is that for transparency, ok ?

Strangely Vlads running with the notion that it's not just a case of it not being a conflict but that's it's actually IN the interest of the AFL and therefore all concerned ( after all Vlad knows best )

All hale Vlad , Vlad is good (god?)

I think the Fat Controller has finally gone too far here.....his Dynasty is now somewhat transparent.....I certainly hope the Players stand up and totally disregard this absurd idea.

This is NOT about a Junior Clubman who may become a Superstar - I'll call him Brian

Jounalist: Hail Messiah!

BRIAN: I'm not the Messiah!

Jounalist: I say You are, Lord, and I should know. I've followed a few.

Everyone else: Hail Messiah!

BRIAN: I'm not the Messiah! Will you please listen? I am not the Messiah, do you understand?! Honestly!

Football Commentator: Only the true Messiah denies His divinity.

BRIAN: What?! Well, what sort of chance does that give me? All right! I am the Messiah!

Can you believe it, that other bloody thread is up to nearly 900 posts, the 3rd time around. Full of conjecture and speculation with one poster nearly at 100 posts. I can see a total meltdown of the board when the decision is announced.

For those with other interests, Melbourne may give up the Grand Prix and Cadel Evans is set for the ride of his life. Go Aussie, win the bloody thing.

Can someone tell me step by step how you link an article.

When you're on the page you would like to link (in this case, the article) click the address bar so that the website name goes blue.

Hold down control and press C (which copies the text) or alternatively you can click edit up the top of the page and select copy.

In a post on D'Land, click the button next to the smiley face that says insert link (it looks like a chain with a plus?).

Where it says URL, hold control and press v (which pastes what you've already copied) or alternatively click the right mouse button and select paste. You can also go into edit up the top and click paste.

Link text means whatever you write will be what appears in your post for people to click on. In this case, Tom Scully's knee.

    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
