Thanks Jeffy

Recommended Posts

Great early on in his career, but is an ability to do the simple things in matches this year was disappointing. Developed a bad habit of kicking the ball, rather dribbling the ball, along the ground and missing basic shots on goal. His tackling pressure became non existent.

 

had some great moments. Wish him all the best.the Gold Coast might pick him up.

Oooooh nice one, personal attack. It hurts bro. Well done *Golf Clap*

Don’t need a golf club but the dribble you spit out is laughable. 

So do you think we should have kept Garlett?

Leads us this for both average goals and average tackles inside 50.

Tells you how bad we have been in both -areas. AN indictment. Were you not annoyed by his inability finish this year. ? Remember the adelaide game?

Not saying he's been great, and clearly we've struggled in those areas, but wouldn't you think that would mean you wouldn't get rid of him so quickly? Surely delisting players who have strengths in your areas of weakness isn't a solid strategy for improvement?

I'm not surprised he's gone, I thought he may have actually retired, but I just disagree with people who try to paint him as something he's not.

Well boys, we knew this day was coming a long time ago and we've come to terms with it. Truth is Dec was a bit over football anyway, to be putting in all that blood, sweat and tears to not be playing regular senior footy isn't easy.

That being said, the family and I will be forever grateful to the Melbourne Football Club for giving Dec the chance to live out his life long dream, and he got that chance on a sunny afternoon at the MCG. Not only that, but they won a close game, and himself having an impact on that result (his centre clearance for those who remember) He and us will never forget it.

To everyone at Demonland, since I first started posting here 5 years ago when Dec started playing some decent footy at Casey, thank you for all your kind words. I have had a great time being able to share this experience with super passionate supporters which are sometimes hard to find. I have sincerely enjoyed the conversations and experiences I've had over the years and I'll be sure to pop back in ever now and again as I now and will always bleed Red and Blue.

Dec's career wasn't the most glamorous by any stretch but only a very small percentage of people who ever play our beloved game get to say they played in the AFL.

Cheers everyone, and have a drink on me!

Lol keep it coming mate, must be proud of yourself shooting off personal insults on the internet. Good one.

Do you go up to randoms in the street and insult them for pointing out facts or do you only do it on the internet?

Jones is our highest goal scorer on our list now, not sure why you need to go down the path of personal insults over me highlighting this but ok mate.

Settle down buddy.  Telling you, your commentary is dribble is hardly a personal insult.  

Stick to your Jones bashing, it seems to be your sweet spot and I’m sure if he reads it he won’t take it personally.

I think it was  Redleg who commented on the Garlett Carlton highlights at the time he was recruited and he posted how impressive they were.  I then watched the them too and totally agreed.  Jeffy when ‘on’ was electric and every time there was the fast break you knew he’d end up out-sprinting their backman.  Ha brilliant.  Loved his sneaky tackles out of nowhere,  he won that game up in Brisbane for us single handedly and we got him for such a low pick, a treasured gift from Uncle Mick...Jeffy you entertained us, we loved you.  

Enjoy  your next adventure, bonne chance 👍🏻

I loved seeing Jeffy in the red and the blue.

One of my favourite players during the Roos years.

Good luck to him - will always have very fond memories of his contributions to the club.

Nice memories - and a forward line!

Watts

Hogan

Kent

Gee, they were shocking. Glad they're no longer with us!

Yes noted those skilful players in the Jeffy highlights package! Traded out Watts and Kent for more grunt oh well. Gee we could use a 2015 Jeffy now with his speed and goal sense. But as I have said in the past did our game plan of 2017/18 kill him? High forward press, congested forward line, multiple forward entries but  no space to run. Looking at his highlights package he worked best when he had space and was one on one.

Agree

Unbeatable one on one when the ball hit the ground

Worked hard when Roos coached him, but the club's 'contested footy at all costs' manifesto killed him

Was legit my favourite player for a while there. Will always have a soft spot for him.

I’ve said a few times, he brought a swagger to our side when we were completely devoid of it. He got in opposition faces. He did the mercurial when no one else was even remotely capable.

He was more than just a footnote. He will be remembered. By me at least.

Cheers Jeffy. And thanks.

I’m sad we’re delisting him, not because I disagree (I think it’s the right call), but because I wish he was still part of our best 22. 

I loved it when he joined and when he was playing well he was a reason to go watch us play.

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September?

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up. That should never have happ
