Watts for Aish

Pick 3 on aggressive utility

Aish, Brayshaw , Viney, Salem, Toumpas, Tyson, Petracca, Trengove

Midfield is looking ok..

Midfield is looking even better if you put N. Jones and Vanders in it (& maybe even Neal-Bullen).

I think you are a trifle heroic if you think Aish (a South Australian) would prefer to come here when both teams in his home state are more likely to provide him with a chance of playing in finals. Also what would motivate Brisbane to trade him for Watts?

I will wait for a few more weeks until I turn my attention to 2016, thankyouverymuch...

I get the feeling we will be seeing up and downs all year, like the GWS second half downer... screws with our emotions and expectations

still, I'll take ups and downs as opposed to just downs like recent years

Not sure if it's evidence of us being recognised as a genuine side or not, or just that we have at least one decent player, but I'm loving seeing Nate Jones everywhere lately.

He marketable and recognisable. Still only ranked 100 in the league. Has a face and demeanour that stands out, easy for people to remember. He needs to go up a level though. Edited by praha

If we finally have a good run of injuries in 2016, we could be chance. Hawks have one player unavailable at the moment, a kid yet to play a game. That's unheard of for us.

Anyway, without knowing who we may pick up/lose with FA/trade, my 2016 team is:

Garland McDonald Frost

Jetta Dunn Salem

Vince Viney Lumumba

Watts Hogan Kent

Howe Dawes Garlett

Gawn Jones Tyson

Vandenberg Cross Brayshaw Petracca

Unlucky or depth: JKH Toumpas Stretch ANB Trengove Pederson Spencer M Jones Grimes First round pick. Was speaking to BMac at training who said Mitch White could really come on as e rebounding defender.

If the youngsters continue to come on, we will finally have good footballers playing in the VFL.

Can't see Howe being here next year.

Let's not forget the quick rise and fall of Port Adelaide. A kick of the grand final to being an also ran a year later. Anything can happen. Basing next year on this year's form is fools gold. We could get much better, or we could stall.

Ask me midway into next season and I will give you an answer.

We're playing a very different style of game plan to Port, whose high-risk, high-reward falls down when key players lose form. We're playing a hard fought contested game, but we're also very pretty to watch when we are attacking, particularly coast-to-coast on the slingshot. Roos is building a game style that will succeed in September. We just need to get the personnel right.

    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.

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

    POSTGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    After a very wasteful first half of footy the Demons ended up cruising to a clinical victory over the Saints by 38 points at the MCG and ultimately reclaimed a coveted spot in the Top 4.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    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.
