Prove it...

I would like to see what this track record is, can you provide evidence and not just sweeping statements. I'm thinking this has become some kind of urban myth.

If you want proof use the search function like any other - rather than being so lazy and instead attacking the man before knowing or looking at his history.

If you don't know where it is it's in the top right hand corner of the screen. Search in forums with his name and scour through the posts.

As I recall the biggest one he had was the signing of Paul Roos well before it came out.

If we are playing at riddles, I've been told to keep mum as this is really really close, but try this....

Ronald who looks after the fries, is currently cooking us up a Mac-lin

Alex McDonald working on Ben McGlynn coming to Melbourne?

Ok my guess regarding one of the players from the riddles:

“As I said a massive game of chess. The end results are far certain.

Our likely trade partner comes in black and white but is not a little bird.” - GNF

As mentioned by some, a Swan which is a big bird that can come in either Black or White.

These three posts below were liked by GNF, suggesting a trade with Sydney (relates well the their COLA sactions and this players high level of pay).

“From BF, Devastating Boris (Melbourne supporter)

Quote

My mate works in the footy dept for GWS but as we all know Sydney is very small and he often gets swans news. He can't say anything more other than to strap myself in for a big week if everything goes well."

“I thought sydney could trade their players for draft picks, but could not trade players for other players, if so they maybe looking to get as many early draft picks as this their sole source of new blood this year.”

“Correct. Can only trade out their players for picks, not other picks”

With that in mind being Sydney and a Black and White swan I think one player is TOM MITCHELL.

Notice the Black Swan and White Swan,

Hi all, made a new account to join in the fun.

Most exciting demons related event I can think of for ages! Reminds me of the NBA style rumors and crazyness every year.

Anyway, regarding those 2 clues (not taking it seriously, but it is pretty funny)

"Tick, tock, the black mouse has run up the electric clock."

To the guy who thinks this is:

- Clock: SCG clock tower

- Mouse: John F Kennedy's wife called him "mouse".

Why would it specifically say "black mouse" and not "mouse" if it wasn't important to his crazy riddle? The only thing that came to my mind when I saw that was Mickey, as in Mickey Mouse.

As for the other it's nothing but a fun guess but here goes.

“Tick, tock, the black mouse has run up the electric clock.

Lancelot lurks with feathers or fur to the command of his sir.”

Black mouse being "Danger Mouse". His belt and colours are red and yellow, change the white to black/ dark it's Adelaide. The Tick Tock maybe the bomb. So I will go with the flow thinking it's Dangerfied. Electric clock, maybe some trade with Watts, or just electric pace, not sure.

As for the "Lancelot lurks with feathers or fur to the command of his sir." I have no idea and look forward to the answer.

I struggle to think of any Eagles players better than Nathan Jones.

inb4 someone says "that brownlow guy!"

Black and White equals Port to me, equals Wines. Get it done Demons, it should have been done three years ago when he and Todd Viney desperately want it to be.

G'day all, first time poster long time lurker.

I had no idea what Maclin meant so typed it in to google and Jeremy Maclin is the name that comes up in lights, a famous NFL player apparently.

Checked and Jeremy Cameron is indeed managed by Alex McDonald.

So apparently we're signing Cameron, Dangerfield and Kennedy, happy days!

Can't imagine it since he re-signed until end of 2016 this year!

“Tick, tock, the black mouse has run up the electric clock.... Black mouse = black sheep = holding out on contract talks @ Crows, time is ticking away..... electric clock = The Power, they want him... but How (picks)

"Lancelot lurks with feathers or fur to the command of his sir." ? Dangers manager holding offers ready for him to either wear Feathers or Fur next year.

if this is right, then who will help Port get the picks they require; is it us? & what do they give us to get the deal done.

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    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
