Probably in the minority, but I still love the Schwab-designed "shield" logo the most of all the above.

I agree with you. Oozes class.

This goes off topic a bit, but I wouldn't mind seeing retro heroes being put on tee-shirt lines. The gawn and Jones nerd tees were a hot commodity last season. Would love a flower, stynes, barassi and Lyon tee to be created.

 

I saw one of these at Family Day, asked the guy where he got it from and ordered the next day!

Both of my daughters (and my sister) got Demons pjs a couple of Christmases ago. Not retro but they love them

Mine were from the 80’s they were awesome, even though I don’t wear pjs anymore. I bet they look real cute.

The recipients liked them so that's the main thing. The Demon shop is a blessing for the unimaginative father

Don’t be modest. I loved mine as a child. Wish I still had them, but gave away to St Vinnies a few years ago. I spent many a pocket money in the stands buying Demons gear. The things we bought would make you laugh.

My kids all had Dees pjs

They had Schwab’s logo all over them at weird angles everywhere 

Mine were old school. Was hard throwing them out, but since I haven’t worn pjs in ages, they had to go. Hopefully some brainwashed kid is wearing them now ?

I like how they’ve resuscitated the black and white Demon from the 80’s on retro gear as I grew up with it. I would like to also see the Demon logo from 1989-1994 on some retro stuff they release this year. That was a superb logo and I don’t think we gave it enough chance. My brother had a flag of it and it was amazing flying it at games. I was never a fan of the ‘clean shaven’ demon logo from 1996-2007 and frankly I think we held on to it too long. The next was was ok, but not given a chance and soon discarded. What does everyone else think?

Hey Cassiew. 

 

If THEY want to make a retro jumper for fans to buy and wear.   Why not something along these lines.

Maybe some 'slight' adjustment, to the colours, but only slight.

 

So a lace up Jumper to wear to warm games,,, and also in a Vest form to wear over other clothing and under that plaid jacket.  ^_^

 

Reversible clothing, dress down on one side, & dress up a little on the other side with pull up collar.

Awesome, think my favourite is the 1995 version. Love that we're now back at something pretty minimal. 2008 was a stain on our existence.

The old man brought me this flag the year before I was born, bringing it Sun so my 5yr old can have a swing with it.

I remember taking it VFL Park with my grandad all the time (the mad old bugger would drive from Apollo Bay, pick me up in Geelong and drive to Waverley Park to watch games, I'd take my flag no matter who was playing), taking to Kardinia Park. The best and worst 2 were Western Oval last rnd in 87 and Waverley Prelim 87.....

This is one of my all time favs by Weg.

There's another i think where a similar Demon is running like this but he's stabbed the footy and it's on the end of his trident.

As to why we've abandoned the Demon as part of our marketing and general logo beggars belief.

We now have a Checker Hughes medal and Tracc wins the first of them yet the legend who came up with the Demon brand / name would probably be perplexed today if he went looking for any reference in our club material / jumpers / scarfs / website etc.

Sorry to bring this back, but did anyone notice the cuff links in the demon store today? It finally had the old 1989-1994 logo on it that I’ve wanted for so long (along with the others.) Of course being female, they’re completely useless to me, but they’ll make a nice Father’s Day gift. 
Hopefully to do some more retro gear from this era.

    DELTA DEMONS by KC from Casey

    There was an ill wind blowing for the home side at Casey Fields on  Saturday but you wouldn’t have noticed if you turned up seven or eight minutes into the second quarter with the scoreboard showing the Casey Demons holding a lead of 7.5.47 to Footscray’s solitary point. Up to that stage, the depleted Dees combination had taken full advantage of the windy conditions and headed by veterans Nathan Jones, Jimmy Munro and Mitch White had came out of the blocks and plundered the Bulldogs’ defence.

    ON THE FLY by George On The Outer

    After spending most of the previous day in the air, flying between Queensland and Victoria, it was hard to imagine the Demons would be at their best.   But this team was on the fly on the field as well and produced a clinical display which saw them record a 98 point win to put aside any questions about the side being out of form.   Certainly, the Suns who have fallen away badly in the second half of the season were their opponents, but with the Demons looking for a confidence boo

    CITIUS, ALTIUS, FORTIUS by The Oracle

    This weekend, the Melbourne Football Club was supposed to embark on a tour that started with what looked like an innocent trip to the country’s sunny Gold Coast. However, the Covid19 pandemic intervened to bring them back home for this week at least. Next week, it’s off to the West Coast but conspiracy theorists are already suggesting that this interstate sojourn could take the team all the way across the country over the next month and indeed, there are cynics who even believe that it could bec

    THE YEAR THE SNOWFLAKES FELL by Whispering Jack

    The snow that fell on the slopes of Victoria’s mountain districts in the winter of 1965 was not considered good enough to satisfy the enthusiasts. The really heavy snow that season came in two waves further north in July and August. The first descended on the national capital where “Pig Iron Bob” still held sway. Snow flurries touched the landscape all the way across the Blue Mountains. The next big snow extended further north up to the hills around Mackay in Queensland. Snowflakes fell inside t

    DEES GIVE DOGS A BONE by George On The Outer

    First place versus second on the ladder promised to be a precursor to what can be expected in the coming finals race.  However, it was the Demons who faltered and gave the Bulldogs a bone to feed their hunger just weeks out from the end of the season. The win also sent the Dogs to the top of the ladder, a position they are unlikely to cede in the coming weeks, given their fixture. While Melbourne may now struggle to keep a spot in the top four with its draw and will likely depend on the res

    THE WORM WILL TURN by The Oracle

    When I was asked to preview this game, I wasn’t sure whether it was going to be played in Darwin, on the Gold Coast or the MCG. I had no idea as to the identity of Melbourne’s opponent. This would have made for one hell of an interesting match preview so I’m glad that the AFL managed to reorganize its fixture to enable a game … any game at all … to proceed in Round 19. We’ll worry about the Gold Coast Suns or whoever they put us up against when the weekend’s done and dusted and if and when

    DRAWN AND DEEFLATED by George on the Outer

    1st v 17th ... it would seem a sure one way contest between the Hawks and the Demons but it was not to be with the game finishing in a draw, the only positive being the Demons still retain their top spot on the ladder. Melbourne was taught a football lesson by Al Clarkson, who with limited resources, just instructed his players to scrap, fight and surge the ball forward.  It stifled the Melbourne free flowing style of play and denied them the opportunities they could normally expect.

    PINK RAIN by Whispering Jack

    There is no certainty about life under a pandemic. You wake up one morning without a care in the world; the sun’s shining and it’s a beautiful day. An hour later, everything’s up in the air, the entire state is on high alert and the apartment complex next door’s in lockdown. The simple decision you had to make about buying a ticket to the footy at the weekend suddenly might get put on the back burner. There are other things in life to prioritise and on top of that, they’re predicting rain for th

    COR BLIMEY by KC from Casey

    In years to come, the old timers will talk in wonderment about the “Avalon Avalanche” that hit Werribee’s Avalon Airport Oval on a mild winter’s afternoon at about ten minutes after the halfway mark of the game between the local Tigers and their cross town rivals, the Demons from Casey. At that moment in time, the game was poised as if on a knifepoint. Up until the main interval, it had been the visiting team which had maintained the lead from the start but it had struggled to entirely asse

    POWER FAILURE by George on the Outer

    South Australians should be well familiar with the damage that storms can do to the power supply.  But Port Power forgot those lessons on Thursday night football as they watched the Melbourne storm descend upon them from across the border and ruin their hopes of a top four placing. Just as equally, the win to the Demons cemented their spot in the top two and sent out the message that a team who had been going around in circles for the past couple of weeks, has in fact, turned into a cyclone

    CASEY SUFFER FIRST DEFEAT IN TWO YEARS

    The circumstances were a little unusual last Saturday night as KC from Casey was unavailable to report on the Casey Dees due to work commitments. On the ground things were somewhat unusual as well given that, although there was a game to be won on the night, preparations were also being made for the forthcoming Thursday night clash against Port Adelaide with Ben Brown rested for large slabs of the evening. It turned out perhaps, to be a stroke of genius for Melbourne with Brown making a strong c

    WEATHERING THE STORM by Mel Rundle

    The magic of Melbourne’s magnificent start to 2021 is beginning to wear off. In its past six matches it lost to three teams that were outside the eight, out of form —  teams which it had very little trouble bearing last year. This week, the temperature is turned up even higher with the hard fought spot in the top four at risk. The really ominous factor about the Demons’ upcoming Thursday night meeting with Port Adelaide this week is that it is due to take place at the very place where its dec
