Does a Demons Perth Supporter Base Exist?



Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Ive just moved to Perth, I sat and watched the collywobbles games in a sports bar with not one other AFL fan in the prescinct.

Does anyone know if theres a group of Melbourne supporters here that go and watch the games somewhere on a regular basis?

Im sick of walking into pubs and asking if the AFLs on and these imbreds just reply "sorry we dont play GAYFL"

Cheers

There is Joan and Rod LAWSON run the Western Demons and I know they meet regularly to watch matches at The Melbourne Hotle in town and also the Mighty Quinn in Tuart Hill, if you go on the website and join up you will get regular updates on functions etc www.westerndemons.com

When was the last time we won a game in Perth?

Is it as damming as our South Australian record?

My crystal ball says round 2, this year.

Can you gaze deeply into it and see if get close the Hawks next weekend?

It's seeing a similar result to the Collingwood game with Jack Watts having the pill on a string.

Geelong was 2006 i think. I know ND cracked the win & a draw.

Before that we were coached by Swooper.

I think we have won 2 games at Geelong in the last 25 years plus a 30 goal loss now that takes some tossing

You had me up to the last 8 words.

Are you sure you did not have a long lunch today!

Sh!t it is a decade! No wonder sides line up to smash us sideways.

Neeld is going to be another Swooper Northey. Tough.

Enjoy the game. Give Wet Coke heaps.

I'm thinking the whole sentence suggests a long lunch.

My 13 year old daughter has been a member for 8 years she has yet to see the MFC win at Subi. :mad:

I hope they improve this year My daughter bailed out when she was 12 got tired of going to games that we never won.

Took up with Essendon ( still there ) and got a couple of Premierships for her troubles.

She is now a rusted on Bomber

Probably a good decision.

Hope you have more luck.

It is all about winning when you are 12.

Hopefully we will turn the corner for her this year.

Hey - I'm about to move to Perth for 3 months for work. Unfortunately I'm going a few days before Rnd 1 (I've been hanging out for it since September) but I did get a fix on Saturday night.

One consolation is that I can go to Rnd 2 v the Weagles. I'm planning to buy tickets through the club to sit with the other Dees supporters- do many people do that?

I was in Europe for the West Coast Game in 2002 but remember the win against Freo it was pouring down and they should have beaten s but let us off the hook and I remember thinking during the 3/4 if they dont put us away, in the final quarter we will be kicking to the city end with a howling westerly an driving rain we can win this. Thats what happened Vardy starred for us, I also think it was two or 3 years ago on fathers day we lost to West Coast by about 8 or 9 points but should have taken them, Crystal ball says Round 23 win against the Dockers to finish off the year.

Yeah mate. They poke us up behind the goals at Subi. Not the best seats but at least you can talk with other normal people.

I too am also making the move west in the coming weeks, and would love to find some fellow Dees to watch games with.

PM me with details of where is good to watch the footy, grab a pint and a good meal.

On a side note, anyone know of any jobs for an Environmental Planner out west?

    TRAINING: Tuesday 28th May 2024

    Veteran Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin returned to the training track to bring you the following observations from Gosch's Paddock this morning. Beautiful morning for training. The dew has dried, out from AAMI, quiet chatting. Maysie does his heart symbol. 7 in rehab, Turner, Hore, Sestan, BBB, Petty, Spargo and Schache. All in runners. Melky weighted and change of angles work. Salem has his individual program. White cap (no contact), Howes, Woewodin and Sparrow

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th
