Demonland

Bulldogs "Thor" Guernsey

Recommended Posts

Interesting, with Chris Hemsworth being a big doggies fan I do wonder if he had a hand in this decision somewhere along the line. 

Still not as bad as that Golden Logies Hawks jumper, that takes the cake for garbage jumpers.

I’d like to see some kind of protest by Dogs’ supporters, either by flooding the club with emails or simply not turning up at Marvel Rd 1.

We are starting to cross lines that shouldn’t be crossed, when a club starts to lose part of its identity for garbage jumpers and portrayal of players as superheroes, we are getting awfully close. 

I find it a bit sad actually if they have to resort  to this for extra dollars.

What's the chance our new corporate overlords have either kicked in funds to make this happen, or (more likely) ordered the AFL to put the frighteners on and make it happen under an obscure clause in the sponsorship contract?

The post above about dressing up as Spiderman is probably more than a figment of some marketing apparatchik's imagination. They're probably measuring up Nathan and Max for sizes right now.

Many of us were joking at the time it was announced (the unholy marriage of the AFL and the comic book company) but it was always highly likely that they weren't going to be spending all those $$$$ without infiltrating our game with their toys and cosplay.

Why do you imagine the Dogs are the first cab off the rank and not Collingwood or Hawthorn?

This is only the start of it.

The Adelaide Crows have also announced that the team will be running out in full corpse paint to emulate Eric Draven. 

If we are going corpse paint let’s do it properly. Gorgoroth style!!!

Not having a direct dig at you D from Syd, but I reckon that if putting your head in a bucket of water 3 times and taking it out twice was considered a success in the USA, they'd be people saying it was a good idea here too.

Are they playing under AFLX rules in this game?

Okay I suppose its for the younger members of the audience but it's getting very close to cringeworthy.

Almost Meat Loafesque one could say.

Could it be coming from the same marketing area that gave us the AFLX? If so I think they need a little guidance from elsewhere.

Stadium entertainment is hard but if you are smart it can be done. I hear the pre game act at the new Perth stadium is a good as it involves the stadium itself coming to life.

Trouble with this being 'about the young fans' is that it isn't an optinoal extra special outfit for the kids, it is the required, compulsory, team uniform.

"We are trying to increase our reach to kids, so all patrons at the MCG will be required to only consume Happy Meals and Kinder Surprises (except Jack Watts who will be given Wizz Fizz and then pilloried for it)"

I don't know how to react to this news except with the traditional remedy of mockery and ridicule.

We could play along and point out that (according to Marvel) Thor's homeworld was completely destroyed by a giant red Demon... Or... that the Bulldogs better watch out because if Gil snaps his fingers, half the clubs in Victoria will disappear and you can bet the Bulldogs will be found to be surplus... Or... that when the Avengers want to look serious they wear Melbourne guernseys... Or... a bunch of Demon supporters can turn up to our first game there wearing X-Men outfits...

But really, a deafening, disinterested silence is probably the way to go.

F' it. I dunno. The single instance itself is just too stupid to care more than being momentarily irritated.

Theyre kinda ok, cause its related to the sport and promoting culture etcetera. This other stuff is just blatant Americanism that is not even remotely related to aussie rules.

I can picture a future conversation with my son:

once upon a time there was this great game called Aussie Rules. Then a [censored]-end by the name of Gill took control and sold the game for some magic beans.  so to answer your question, that is why the Demons are wearing capes on this jernseys

    GIANT HEADACHE by The Oracle

    It seems so long ago that Melbourne took an unchanged line up into a game on the MCG against the Greater Western Sydney Giants and cleaned them up to the tune of 45 points.  In truth, the event occurred literally half a season ago in the final home and away round of the 2018 season and marked the Demons’ return to the finals with more triumphs to come in the weeks ahead. Of course, back then, it was the Giants who were wracked with injuries as they stumbled into the finals series facing the

    LANDSLIDE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons enjoyed the better of their first half against Port Melbourne on Saturday but fell away badly after half time to lose by 43 points. The Borough enjoyed the early break with the game’s opening two goals but the Demons took control to go out to an 8 point lead at quarter time, an advantage that it held for most of the second term until a late goal to the visitors clawed the lead back to a point.  The Casey ruck of Braydon Preuss and Liam Wale-Buxton were on top for most

    SHOULD HAVE ... COULD HAVE by George on the Outer

    West Coast finally put the nail in the Demons 2019 season coffin with a 16 point win, but it was a game that Melbourne should have, could have, but didn’t win. Once again woeful, truly woeful work in the forward line, both kicking for goal and the lazy, cheap efforts of some let the side down. A solitary goal in the final quarter and only 9 goals from 24+ scoring opportunities was the costly difference in the game. The selectors, once again, made a critical error in not selecting

    SCREAM by Whispering Jack

    The Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch painted a number of versions of his famous work “Scream” and, every time my mind goes back to last year’s Preliminary Final at Optus Stadium between Melbourne and the West Coast Eagles, each and every one of them reverberates through my mind as if my head is being pummeled by a sledgehammer.  When I think of that half time scoreboard from that match showing West Coast at 10.9.69 to Melbourne 0.6.6, I feel like the man standing by the railing,

    NOT GAWN IN 60 SECONDS by George on the Outer

    You might recall a regular segment that once featured on the MFC website entitled, “Gawn in 60 Seconds”, in which Maxy would ask the hard questions of his teammates. However, there was no harder question asked than the one asked collectively of the whole team in the last 60 seconds of Saturday’s game against the Gold Coast Suns.  It was either follow me and my example or the Demons’ season, already hanging flimsily by huuua thread, would be truly “Gorn”.  It was at that stage when thos

    BOILOVER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons caused the boilover of the season to date when they took on and beat the undefeated ladder leaders Essendon VFL by 41 points at Windy Hill.  The stunning result which was achieved with a season low of eight AFL-listed players, will surely kickstart the Demons’ ailing season after they lost their last two matches as a result of some poor third quarter fade outs against quality opposition. Casey got off to a great start with a mid-air soccer volley goal from Jimmy Munro

    LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by Whispering Jack

    There would be very few among us who would have thought realistically at the start of the season that by the time Melbourne’s Round 8 trip to the Gold Coast came around, the visitors would not only be languishing in 16th place on the ladder, but also be sitting a game behind their hosts. In fact, had the Suns managed to goal late in their opening game against the Saints which they lost by a mere point, the gap between the two sides would have been even wider. Such has been the humiliation o

    UNDERDOGS by KC from Casey

    Thanks to the large injury list at Melbourne, the Casey Demons went into their fifth round clash with Footscray VFL as the underdogs and despite a courageous showing up to half time after conceding the game’s first four goals, their third quarter fade out saw them fall short against quality opposition for the second time in a week. Casey went into the game with only 9 AFL listers after Declan Keilty was called up to make his debut when Tim Smith was forced to pull out of the Melbourne team

    IN THE PINK by George on The Outer

    A five point victory against the eternal nemesis in Hawthorn, didn’t put the Demons back in the black for the 2019 season ... but rather, it added a touch of pink to their fortunes, now showing some sign of life after an underwhelming start to the year. And pink was the most appropriate colour for the side and the supporters, given this game was the annual “Pink Ladies” match.  And none more so than this proud Demon fan who turned up to add his support to the cause and his team at the same

    EASIER SAID THAN DONE by The Oracle

    There is no way of getting around the fact that Melbourne is the disappointment team of the AFL competition and, because it came into the season as a big top four fancy and now sits stone motherless last with a 1-5 win-loss record, it is fast becoming a laughing stock.  The only way in which the Demons can restore any sense of pride, let alone its rapidly diminishing hopes of making the finals is for it to overcome Hawthorn on Saturday in the replay of last year’s preliminary final.

    POINT CRASH by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons went down by the narrowest of margins to a strong Richmond VFL combination in the Round 4 game at Casey Fields on Saturday after a rushed behind  to the Tigers in the game’s dying moments broke the deadlock. In a low scoring game, Casey took the early ascendency after conceding the first goal and held their lead for most of the first half going into the sheds at the main break with an 8 point lead. The Demons were led in defence by key position players, Oscar McDonald

    THE LAST POST by George on the Outer

    The Last Post sounded out in memory of the fallen around a packed MCG at the Anzac Eve match against Richmond. The silence of the crowd assembled was in tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. But the Last Post was also an appropriate symbol of the finals aspirations now gone for the Melbourne Football club, after a mere six rounds of the 2019 Season.   How far has this team fallen!  From a Preliminary final contestant barely six months ago, to cellar dwelle
