Danny Hughes

Now I know everyone will hate me for this but I was just watching highlights of the NAB cup game against the Doggies last year but from I saw first footage of Danny Hughes I was mighty impressed! Yhe guy reminded me of the young Cameron Bruce back in 2000. Very skilled and knows where the ball is and has a good leap. His skill level was still fantastic in the wet. I'm jumping on the Danny Hughes bandwagon this year! I'm tipping he will be the one promoted this year. I hope he can turn into a very good player like our Cam has.

PS Jace Bode looked rubbish.

Danny Hughes and Jace Bode both played 15-20 games each for Sandringham, so surely you can form an opinion on the evidence presented in these games more constructively than you can one Escort Cup game. Remember, Andre Gianfagna also looked like a 'superstar' in that game, and he barely played a Sandringham senior game after that.

Hughes reminds me somewhat of a more skilled and slightly bigger bodied Cam Hunter, he looks good for Sandringham, but would get slaughtered because of his body shape in the AFL. He'd have to have an absolutely stunning season for them to be promoted onto our senior list.

Danny Hughes & the Escort Cup.

Wasn't he the winning skipper in 1987

Hehe, he sure was! Me and a few mates are having a DVD night this Friday to relive that match

in its entirety now its available on DVD from the club. To think that was 20 years ago is staggering,

I remember it like it was yesterday! I think it was called the Panasonic Cup by that stage...

This is a big year for Danny. Bode, Neaves and he are all second year rookies and will need to be promoted onto the senior list to be retained. Neaves is a monty to be retained, and as AFL socialism requires at least three draftees, Danny will need MFC to delist five players, at least, for him to be retained.

As this means six for Bode and from what little I know of him, this means he is on very shaky ground.

Danny needs to kick on this year; It is now or never.

I think you can be rookied for 3 years now but I agree that would only be exercised in special circumstances.

The only thing Bode achieved last year was getting rubbed out for a week for Sandringham.

Looked like a fish out of water in that Darwin NAB Cup game and haven't heard any positive feedback about him at training or in the VFL.

Would have to turn it around something chronic to get elevated on the senior list you'd think.

I find Bode puzzling. He came to the club as rated to be picked in the draft (reasonably early...30s?) and with a rep as a state level 200m runner. He loooked hopeless in the NAB cup last year, making it understandable why he was overlooked. After a long season he makes a bit of progress and gets some gigs in the Sandy ones toward year's end (like Buckley). I then read he runs like a crab and later is in BB's project group along with Dunn et al to improve their running techniques and ultimately speed and mobility. It's quite odd.

Nevertheless he's got another year to develop and improve so good luck to him. The rookie list is giving him the time he obviously needs.... he's certainly got his work cut out for him.

That got me last year too because I've seen plenty of athletes and particularly 100 and 200m sprinters and Bode didn't look like one on the football field last year. I don't know if he had a problem like OP but if he did that might be the explanation.

Hughes can seriously play. He was the unluckiest bloke to dropped for the VFL grand final. Look out this year he will fire.

He would have to be favorite to be promoted to the senior list should it become available.

GO HUGHES GO!!!

Apparently he did pretty well. He hit Yze with a pass that had to be 100% spot on cos it was very risky, but he hit perfectly.

Demonlanders, i think we might find that the fellow writing these 2 posts is none other than Danny himself or a close friend. Look at the name of the fella, "Demon38". Isn't that funny how Danny Hughes also wears 38. SPOOKY!

I am not Danny Hughes, I follow Sandringham and I have been keeping an eye on the bloke from when he was kicking goals in the 2's. I rate the kid. There were a few in the 2's that had/have a load of potential.

No disrespect demon38. We're just taking the [censored]. And no disrespect for Danny either.

But geez that would be funny if a rookie came on here to pump himself up or alter supporter relations. Someone like Newton coming on trying to get everyone to call him Juice. Or Miller coming on to start a blue with Freak. Or chopper coming on to.... well... actually, I dunno that he'd have much to say.

I know a few months ago someone over at 'ology I think found out Colin Garland was a member of bigfooty, and bagged out the skipper!

    TRAINING: Tuesday 28th May 2024

    Veteran Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin returned to the training track to bring you the following observations from Gosch's Paddock this morning. Beautiful morning for training. The dew has dried, out from AAMI, quiet chatting. Maysie does his heart symbol. 7 in rehab, Turner, Hore, Sestan, BBB, Petty, Spargo and Schache. All in runners. Melky weighted and change of angles work. Salem has his individual program. White cap (no contact), Howes, Woewodin and Sparrow

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th
