Yes, indirectly.  Gave up pick 3 (Scully compo) and 14, and received MD pick #2 (Hogan), ND pick #20 (on-traded as part of Dawes deal) and Dom Barry.  

Thanks Nash. I'm going to run with that and say we did. Is there anything Maxy can't do?

'Bounce it properly then'

Max to the peanut umpire who had a sook when he'd done a pathetic sideways bounce that he was trying to recall when Max smashed it away.

Ump had given him a dirty look and whined, 'what'd you do that for?'.

Actually the commentator said that he should have said that, Max actually said "I was hitting it back to you".

Regardless of what he said verbally, his awesome fist away and body language certainly said " bounce it properly then ".  

Was a great bit of theatre in the midst of an enjoyable win against the filth.  Added some nice icing to the cake along with Max's other non verbal statements that day.

There was a great interview with Nev Jetta where he asked if having a gun ruxkman made his job as back pocket easier. Then asked Nev to answer some Twitter questions and started with one from gawndog11 "what's it like having the greatest ruxkman in the league in your team"

One about Max, not by him:

"He's all of seven foot tall and about ten kilos of beard"

Some special comments from Alastair Lynch during game comentary.

 

Long live the beard.  Perhaps a few more of our players should do some beard work in the gym and put some weight on there like Maxy.

2016 Brownlow count, Round 19. Gawn is 11 votes behind the leader and gets the 3 votes against Gold Coast.

(With some lip-reading) he can be seen confidently telling his teammates, "This is it, I'm coming!"

What a legend.

At 3:55 on Tommy Mac Donald

"Yeah, he got drafted as a forward - I didn't see the potential myself...if he does it two weeks in a row I'll give him credit.  Yeah if he kicks five again, I'll be the first to shake his hand"

Lol cracks me up does big Maxy.

On Lynden Dunn and Paul Roos

Lynden produced a beautiful torpedo down the middle of the ground from the kick out- Roosy was fairly disappointed that he neglected to tell any of us he was going to do that.

Nicholls was the ump and I am not sure he has given us a free since!

What I find hilarious is that he clearly has a lot of one-liners ready for these media conferences but because all of the journos are focused on their job (I guess that is what they are paid for) a lot of the times they are gawn unnoticed and Gawn just stands there waiting for someone to laugh. The comment above saying he was best on, nothing at all from the journos. His pre-surgery press conference was hilarious as well.

Around 2012 on a trip to China. The story goes Gawn walked into Scully's room after a dozen or so pints (I don't know how many he'd actually had) and spewed all over a sleeping Scully.

Around 2010 I think.

Here with you on this one Maxy and happy with the outcome against Port on Saturday:

 

 "We focused a little bit on our start this week especially because our starts have been - excuse my language - sh--house," Gawn told Fairfax Media.

I'm hoping the next version of the Demonland software will have artificial intelligence so if we preface a curse word with "excuse my language", the auto-censor doesn't kick into play.

Well, if it's good for Max.

But seriously, the Demonland auto-censor is seriously lacking in intelegence on occasions.  Admittedly, there are times when my intended curse words have been picked up as such, but there are also some pretty benign ones that seemed to get picked up, even in completely benign context.  Eg:

Was a good coin toss for Josey to win today;

Or

We gave Gold Coast an absolute flogging last year.

Excuse my language, but that umpire Nicholls is a [censored] [censored] camel [censored] [censored] stain

Been way too long since this thread was updated and I'm sure there are a few that have been missed in between, yesterday's effort deserves to be recorded.  The quote it's self wasn't so hilarious, but the context of the contemptuous way it was delivered to the offending umpire makes it worthy:

"That’s ruck craft, big boy"

    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

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
