DemonOX

Recommended Posts

I just want to wish Zak Jones all the best in this weekends GF. 

He is the first of the Jones boys to make to a GF. 

in saying that I am tipping the Bulldogs. 

Would like to see them win it after such a long drought. 

Next on the list to win it would be the Demons.

All the hype about the Bulldogs this week has been insane, it could all end in tears very quickly.

Agreed, they may [play the game before it starts, bit like us in 2000, we looked so good up to the GF and then we just went to pieces.

Hope the Bulies win and then we win the next three like we did in 55, 56 and 57.

Great to see young Jones an important part of the Swans defence. He is a different cat that way he goes about it.

I want the Dogs to win. No question.

I think the Dogs are paving a way for our own set of youngsters. Effort is superior to top draft picks such as the Giants received.

If the Dee's can develop a similar desire to 'do it for their mates' I reckon We'll be in for a few solid years.

I should be happy for the Doggies supporters after their massive drought but I'm not. It's kind of like seeing your mate win tattslotto. Whilst it's fantastic for your mate, what benefit do you actually get out of it? 

I hope Buddy kicks a goal after the siren to win the game as a result of a dubious free kick.

I could've sworn they won the flag last week.

I've never seen such elation and excitement after a game that wasn't a grand final.

Great article on the Jones brothers on the Fox Footy page:

Captain Courageous, Nathan you are a class act and hopefully your day will come soon too.

BA,  I vaguely recall you having a wager on the dogs to be premiers. Is that correct/still on? 

It was correct mate but not it's not still on, I had :

Coleman : Kennedy @ $2.75

RS : Oliver @ $10

Brownlow : Danger @ $9

Flag : Dogs @ $12.50

x $10 outlay = $30,937

 

Would of been nice.

Hindsight is a wonderful thing....

Next year I will take a few each way and mix it up. Need to have at least 3 options for the flag.

BA, I think all clubs have the same salary cap next year. Lions, Suns, Swans and Giants are just left with the academy zones in which is just as much and if not more of an unfair advantage. 

Ok great, was thinking Swans COLA was just about wrapped up but was under the impression Suns and Giants has a couple of years left to run on theirs. Hopefully Brisbane's doesn't go back up.

I think Sydney's is gone (there's probably still contracts in there that use it) but a few years to go for Suns and GWS.

I recon the doggies played their grand final last week.

Be so hard to muster up that kind of desire again.

That said,who knows what their coach has put into their heads.

I really hope they win and it is a game that equals that of last week.

That game showed me how far our team has got to go to rival that kind of determination.

I don't think you can compare this GF with 2000. That Bombers side was absolutely unstoppable and had the greatest season in history.

The difference between the Dogs and Swans quality is a lot smaller than the Dees and Bombers of 2000.

I thought the dogs played their GF, 3 weeks ago, then 2 weeks ago, then last week....

    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
