Demonbracket 50 - Celebrating 50 Fruitless Years

Recommended Posts

Happy with the numbers considering it was held over 1 day rather than 2 (or more for the games that went across weekends).

Can you tell if there were similar unique votes though Adam?

Can you tell if there were similar unique votes though Adam?

Yes, but I don't bother looking as long as the vote total isn't massively increased. Not all that concerned by somebody voting once or twice but the peanut who tried to stack it by voting 150 times gave themselves away through lack of subtlety. Anyway, the quarter final votes are in and it's congratulations to the following winners:

Robert Flower 107 (65%) d. David Schwarz 57 (35%)

David Neitz 146 (89%) d. Jeff White 18 (11%)

Allen Jakovich 85 (52%) d. James McDonald 79 (48%)

Jim Stynes 128 (78%) d. Todd Viney 36 (22%)

Which leaves us with the following semi-finals, with all the bookies pre-tournament favourites still involved. Voting is open from now until 7pm Monday night, with the Grand Final to follow on Tuesday.

Robert Flower vs David Neitz

Allen Jakovich vs Jim Stynes

Agreed. I really miss those "Facebook Comment of the Week" videos. They were therapy for me at the time and truly the highlight of the Neeld era. They almost made the whole Neeld era worth it.

When's the DVD coming out Adam?

I miss the videos, what I don't miss is trawling the Facebook page for the comments that went along with them.

Brisbane Roar sack coach after 5 losses in 6 games this year on the back of two premiership A league cups in 12 and 13 plus coach of the year award. It's Norm Smith all over again! Maybe the curse will be transferred?

Brisbane teams can't help themselves, they love the bandwagon.

Friends, it is my pleasure to announce that the results have been certified by our government supervisor

B3RaF-TCMAADq2j.jpg

and that we have a winner... But first the preliminary matches:

In the Survivor Series the Brothers (James McDonald, Anthony McDonald, Gerard Healy and Greg Healy) d. The Unrelated (Glenn Lovett, Brett Lovett, David Williams and Luke Williams) by 120-43

In the Battle Royale your favourite ex-Demon at another club in 2015 was Jared Rivers with 31% of the vote from Stefan Martin (bless you all) with 25% and Scott Thompson with 17%.

The third place playoff was an absolute ball-burster, with the Plate Final almost shared as Allen Jakovich nudged David Neitz out by a score of 82-81

And the result you've all been waiting for. In the final, Robert Flower was voted your favourite Demon of the last 50 years after a narrow 83-80 victory over Jim Stynes.

Thanks everyone for your support of the tournament and your 2120 votes throughout. For the sake of probity the final results in all matchups can be seen here.

See you in January/February for a return to the fourth installment of the traditional Demonbracket format for current players only, and in November 2018 for our next 'all time' ballot #demonbracket54

    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
