The NBA and NFL players never have to go home, because they are grown adults who understand its part of their career.

The "Go Home" factor shows how immature these players really are.

Geelong didn't need Ablett and Hawks didn't need Buddy ??

Right... Ever heard of a bloke called LeBron?

I've come to the point now that I don't have a fav player anymore as they come and go when ever it suites them. 

If he stays great if he goes which I think he will then get a good trade for him and get someone in who wants to be at the club. 

I am starting to feel the same way OX. I was devastated when The Wizard left, this will be worse if it eventuates.

Horrible example to use if you're trying to prove me wrong!

The absolute vast majority of players play for cities that are not their home town, and they make that city their home town. They do pay acknowledgement to their origins, but that's where it ends for most.

The lucky ones will finish their career in their town of origin, but it's mostly in their twilight years, ala dWade

Lets be honest.. Jesse ain't home sick. He wants to get out of Melbourne after having to deal with Saty everyday!

That would just be enough to make me fly back home!

I think we can have a bit of sympathy for poor Jesse..

The difference with the NBA example is that those players are older and have usually been away interstate at a college for a few years so they're more adjusted to it.

Also, getting paid more than 10x as much probably softens the blow.

Of course, unless Saty has been told something by the players, it isn't true.

Cos they're all such good mates. It's not like they tolerate the weirdo & his creepy come-ons.

I think it's time we stop the poster attacking.

Both sides need to accept we all have different views and as many have said, it is only a fan forum and accuracy of posting is not a requirement.

We have gossip, rumours, allegations, inuendo, fantasy, etc.

I find it tiresome wading through posts of people attacking each other on here.

I have met Saty at training and he is a nice bloke, as I am sure are most of the rest of the posters.

Saty is unusual in his posting style, but he is not Robinson Crusoe.

Everyone needs to be a little less precious and not attack everything said, because you may not like the poster or their style.

Lets all move on.

We are all Dees fans.

Yeah, then moved back for the sole reason that it was his home, nothing else.

yeah maybe, but one swallow doesn't make a summer.

the op's point that US professional athletes are much older and therefore more mature when drafted is a valid point. By the time they have established themselves they are likely around 23-24 years old at least

No I qualified it, no player will discuss their contract, you get a straight bat always have always will, a player to say that is surely a joke, I am actually joining in by questioning it instead of assuming it is a gact and hand wringing

I put the 'soft' comments and conversations I have with the players on here, don't share a lot coz Demonland doesn't deserve it

 

 

Your last sentence is egotistical and arrogant. Most of us don't share a lot of information with others for a variety of reasons, but to say you don't share a lot because Demonland doesn't deserve it, really!  You really don't do yourself any favours, or perversely, despite what you write you enjoy stirring up reaction. You may think that's fun, but really most people will just think your a turkey.

Indeed. In addition the players in the NFL and NBA (not sure about baseball) have almost always come via the college system and i would hazard a guess that in the overwhelming majority of cases they had to move away from their home city or state to attend the college that recruited them. So not only are they older and more mature they've had 2 or 3 years of getting used to living far from home.

Ken Griffey Jr (baseball) was drafted straight out of high school.

We all know how it worked out for him...

saty, i think you crossed the line telling jesse there was this huge thread on demonland discussing his contract negotiations. knowing there was a mix of positive and negative comment and robust debate. it was just an invitation for him to read and then not be in a position to really respond to anything he might disagree with

not a very smart thing to do, chap

I imagine Saty sees it along these lines:

Always has despised Demonland. Has already admitted recently that most times he posts to bait others and get a reaction.

While i enjoy what the Mods do around here i get disappointed when he is given the soft pillow and allowed to continue to derail threads, shout at others for having a opinion on players and the constant bad mouthing of Demonland.

Who's to say he isn't posting in this very thread, trolling us and laughing is arse off?

He does love a good smile, our Jesse.

Still one of my favourite posters, Ernest. As Jurgen Klopp said, "Boom".

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had
