Such a click bait title from SEN.  It is just one of them (SOS I think) pontificating about whether North might want a player instead of a pick, and then he threw up Brayshaw as a suggestion (and a dumb one at that).  The title makes it sound like North are actually interested in one of our players when they aren't.

Sorry, sounds like such a small thing to be annoyed about, but I wasted 5 minutes of my life to find that info out.  And I want it back!!

When playing at North - hate his stupid run up, hate his flopping for frees, hate how straight of a kick he is for goal and I hate his stupid hair cut. Now that he is pretty much going to be a De

All looking good. Expect him to nominate  melbourne any time now. Both parties are seemingly very excited.     

Kick the ball to Ben Brown.

While this isn’t as show stopping as getting a Jeremy Cameron to the club, it’s going to be just as effective for us. I honestly think with Ben having more games on the weekend wide expanses of the G, the best is yet to come for him. Great pickup!

... I can't see that a midfielder of ours for Ben Brown would be commensurate... so yeah Clickbait.. but tasty clickbait I guess.. when we're worried that the midfield would get disbanded... when we are finally coming up to the goldlilocks zone...

Desperately need another small to compliment the talls. Brown, Weid, Jackson, Pickett are a few great pieces of the puzzle, Tracc resting forward with another Pickett type acquisition will make us a lot more dangerous. 

Jack Lonie  ( St Kilda) is the man and will be available!!

We have to develop 'mongrel' now. We have the personnel to win, we need 'mongrel' to get there comprehensively.

North fans reckon they'll get a minimum of a first round pick for him.

I love North fans.  They've got no idea.

Dress sense is a little shabby, too.

I think the fanbase forfeited any right to suggest nicknames after milkshake.  🤦🏻‍♂️

What’s wrong with Milkshake? Geeze. Next you’ll be telling me that Pedo and Fritzl aren’t good nicknames.

I still can’t believe Norf fans exist. Like I know they do, and each one of them is a [censored], but like why?

I think North fans better get ready for disappointment, they’ve basically made Brown staying at North impossible and they have only one piece of leverage, saying they’ll let him walk (which in their current situation they really don’t want). 

They’ve just moved on a lot of players, how are they stocked for defenders? Brown for pick 23 and Oscar perhaps?

LOL. If I were our no. 9 I'd also be taking out a court injunction to prevent the Deebrief from calling him Spargy Pants.

Melbourne is confident it can accommodate three talls in the same forward line next year as it attempts to clinch a deal for Ben Brown.

But the Demons must work hard to re-sign Western Australian Luke Jackson ahead of certain attempts from the two WA clubs to poach him.

Jackson, 19, is out of contract next year and will be in demand if the Demons cannot secure an extension over summer.

Coach Simon Goodwin will play Brown, Jackson and Sam Weideman together in the same forward half next season with the club facing a finals-or-bust season.

It means the Demons will explore Jackson’s versatility as a key-forward ruckman who will support captain Max Gawn in the ruck in 2021.

But the Demons also have high hopes the former Australian basketballer could play as a big midfielder or wingman in the same vein as Geelong utility Mark Blicavs in his second AFL season.

 

Oh ffs, they really know how to throw [censored] on a salad. I bet old floggsy Clark $100 that Jackson signs on again to the Dees.

Surely people get that some posters have their one trick pony schtick (a bit like Ben Brown allegedly) - and we all openly acknowledge this, without ever actually telling the person that we know that their schtick is boring as feck. 

And that's ok.

But then every now and again the schtick changes and you realise that said poster *ahem, cough* Ben Brown has more in his armoury than given credit for. And it's a lovely surprise.

Some posters however... drone on and on and on... best to mute methinks... even if the 'crowd' think they're amusing..... 

And so linking that back to Ben... it's ok to sledge Ben, over his hair, his run up... but when you're 8 can's deep  at the preliminary final next year, 4 goals up and Ben is managing momentum/time wasting with his run up, or his brush back of his voluptuous hair...(yes I know the clock has stopped)... we can all probably reflect on how, when for north melbourne, for the love of god, who is this [censored]...but now.. .my man, I always knew this would be a great trade so that I, and only I can finally reach the holy grail of a premiership and cry many many many many tears of joy... but then you come back to reality and the G, probably in the ponsford stand if you are from the country like myself... and give yourself a little fist pump and knowing smile, that hey... this Brown bloke, much like some posters on Demonland, can actually surprise you...even though they're as beige as feck.

 

 

My nipples got hard reading this part...

    SOUNDS OF SILENCE by Whispering Jack

    This was my first game for points involving the Demons in more than a year and a half and the long march to Carrara turned out to be worthwhile. The game was won in a single withering quarter that was dominated by Melbourne on the back of an outstanding display from Karen Paxman. The four-time All Australian picked up 13 touches for the stanza to set up a five goal to nothing second term after a lacklustre start in which the cleaner, sharper Gold Coast notched up the first two goals of the game

    BRIDESMAIDS AGAIN by Whispering Jack

    Historians of the future will have little difficulty in finding words to define the year 2020. “Covid-19”, “pandemic” and “plague” come readily to mind. The Covid-19 pandemic dominated the year in every aspect of life and it certainly didn’t spare AFL football or the Melbourne Football Club. In the circumstances however, it didn’t treat it as badly as the Spanish Flu epidemic which raged a century earlier from February 1918, through 1919 and into 1920 when it finally petered out in April of

    THE TASMANIAN TIGER by Whispering Jack

    I first saw Ben Brown on a cold Tuesday night in May, 2013 playing for the Werribee Tigers against Queanbeyan in a televised Foxtel Cup game before a sparse crowd at Etihad Stadium. His teammate and former Demon Jordan Gysberts was the star of the side’s 85-point belting of the hapless ACT club but the then 20 year old, 200cm Brown was also a stand out.  Earlier that year, the athletic big man had left his native Tasmania in an effort to make the grade after being overlooked in three drafts

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: The Cure It could be coincidental but since the AFL Free Agency and Trade Period began, the State of Victoria has recorded eight consecutive days of no new active cases and no deaths from Covid19. It might be a little early to announce that a cure for this dreaded virus has been discovered but one thing can be said with some certainty after following the ins and outs of the free agency and trading process — mankind is still a long way off finding a cure for boredom.

    CHANGES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: A very strange year Things might have been somewhat hairy when the 1919 football season opened up in the wake of the ending of a world war and in the middle of a pandemic that took millions of lives but it’s difficult to imagine a more unusual football season than the one that ended a week or so ago. For starters, the footy is supposed to finish on that one day in September on the MCG in mild spring weather; not deep into October at the Gabba amid warnings of tropical storms and h

    A- Alice Springs. Happy hunting ground.     B- Backline. Finally found the non-leaking version.   C- Cairns & Covid. How a season was ruined.    D- Demonland. Mental Health facility run by the inmates.   E- The grade you get when you don’t make F- F- Finals. What are they? G- Goals. Lack of them. Need a forward who can kick them….lots! H- Hub. Where players got to live with people you can’t stand. I- Injuries. Miracle cure provided by Dr. Burgess.

    WASH, RINSE, SPIN, REPEAT! by George On The Outer

    Although the Demons got over the line in their must win final round game against the hapless Bombers, they ensured it was Groundhog Day for their supporters who well remember what happened three years ago (although, this time they at least enjoyed the success of victory). Melbourne had its customary start dominating play and having plenty of chances in front of goal, only to find itself down on the scoreboard at the first change. Inaccurate kicking, particularly from set shots would have pu

    THE LUCK OF THE DRAW by Whispering Jack

    The long awaited clash between Melbourne and Essendon is almost upon us. Thirty-seven rounds of AFL football have passed by since the two clubs met on a balmy early April night last year in a game that produced a high scoring shootout at the MCG with the Bombers prevailing by 18 points. It was their only meeting for 2019 and happened at a time when the pandemic was something on the far distant horizon. Several months later when the 2019 season ended, the AFL issued the first of its fixtures

    THERE’S STILL A HEARTBEAT by George on the Outer

    When bottom side Adelaide scrapped together a win over the Giants last week, a tiny glimmer of hope opened up for the Demons’ finals chances. The patient was in intensive care but not quite finished — there was a faint pulse, a heart beating ever so slightly but was it enough when two more wins and other results were needed to fall their way? The first step was the resuscitation of a team that had lost its last two matches against sides then sitting fifteenth and sixteenth on the ladder. On

    THE FINAL HUMILIATION by The Oracle

    On Sunday, the Melbourne Football Club that won three consecutive games by in excess of 50 points last month returns to the Gabba, the scene of the last of those victories which was a 56 point drubbing of Collingwood. The Demons got off to a good start and won every quarter with a ruthless and powerful brand of football. They kicked 16 goals that day, their accuracy in front of goal a tribute to the skills the put on display throughout the afternoon and evening. In the four matches playe

    GIVEN THE OLD HEAVE HO’ by George on the Outer

    Fremantle gave Melbourne the old heave ho’ from playing finals in 2020, in conditions that the Demons yet again failed to handle.   With the whole season on the line and the need to win to stay in contention for finals, what the fans saw was much the same as they have been witnessing so many times before — a complete debacle and capitulation against a side that sat 15th on the ladder before the game.     Promises made after the loss to the 16th placed Sydney Swans were rendered h

    GETTING THE HEAVE HO by Bananabender

    The ute barely made it up to Cairns in time for us to check into the motel, fling a cane toad out the bathroom. and head over to Cazaly’s Stadium where we took up our position on the wing. There, we saw a completely different Melbourne to the one we watched on the screen only a few nights earlier from Alice Springs. This lot wore similar colours and Maxy dominated the ruck but the similarities ended there - the Demons were simply dreadful against the Swans. They started sluggishly, were spe
