Sorry all, I've been so busy with work and building a new house that Demonland has been a rare occurrence lately.... I'm keen to be involved (for the whole season this time) and also my little Demon is also keen to jump on board...

So there's TWO more for the league - We have signed up!

The draft night is not Wednesday is it?

I'm in Sydney on a work junket until Thursday so won't be in a position to be completing a draft... Next Sunday is a better option yeah?

Hey Krazy

Welcome back champ & welcome to your young bloke also.

Draft night is not Wednesday, hoping Poita updates details soon to Sunday 18th March......

If I get the time I'm also happy to do a write up of how each match up fared over the weekend.  I did this a few years back the last time I played and people seemed to enjoy it, so I'm happy to have another crack if I get the time once the season is underway!

@poita Hey Mate......

We need to change the Draft Date ASAP.

Hopefully the uneven number of teams don't let it proceed tonight otherwise this might get messy.

@Wiseblood Hey Wisey

Awesome offer for weekly wrap ups mate, Krazy was doing some good stuff early last season also..

Its going to be a big season, let's hope we get the Draft date sorted ASAP

If @Krazy Jaeger O'Smeara was doing them last season and wants to continue then I'm fine with that, I don't want to step on any toes.  If he's happy to pass on the baton then I'll be happy to do them.  Might even try and fit in a season preview as well. :)

Krazy has gone ...so wise blood continue....We need OMR to take over management if Poita cannot do it....this is becoming ridiculous.

if indeed, just a blooper....no issue...but we need to get act together.

I'd put my hand up to do more but I actually run a separate Ulitimate Footy League with 14 people from my work. I manually enter the draft picks after a 4 1/2 hour [censored] up draft at the pub and then prepare a season preview that of course predicts me to finish first and sledges the chances of all of my opposition. It's good fun and it would be great if we could replicate that vibe here. The weekly wrap ups were awesome last year.

I totally agree re: the vibe of it.  I think some previews, weekly wrap ups and a bit of banter makes things much more fun.  Not to mention everyone logging in regularly to check if their are trade offers on the table.  When I played a few years back I would offer a trade or two and find it sitting there three weeks later which was frustrating.

I've got my Sunday night free so hopefully we can organise the draft for then and get things underway!

All - I have contacted Ultimate Footy for assistance. Stay tuned I will update once they have responded ?

Good move, OMR.  As you say, we need to get things off the ground and make sure everyone is aware of the draft date etc so the season gets underway without too many problems.

Hi All

OK - Success the Draft is now officially Sunday 18th March 2018 @ 8.00pm.

We still need one more team to proceed & Im still working on getting Admin rights transferred to myself pending Poita's reappearance. 

Scoring is the same as last year, I'll put it out there once I get some visability.

If that doesn't come off I have another plan... Relax now mate I've got this.  We are going to have a huge interactive season.  And I'm going to kick your ass all the way ?

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster. Half an hour before this last game of the opening round was due to comme
