Demon Forever

Farewell Sam Frost

Recommended Posts

Some say we should have kept Frosty because he's a fan favourite, but that's only because he kept kicking the footy to them.

I had a Strange Fantastic Dream last night!!

FROSTY WON THE NORM SMITH MEDAL IN 2020 In yet another inspiring display for the Hawks.

Just remind me again Why we did this?? which will come back a bite us Hard on the rrrse!

Love this album 'picket', but there are a fair few drug references on it.

It would indeed be a strange fantastic drug induced (Too much Chicken S...) dream for Frost to win a Norm, not a chance in real life...

I suggest we all bid him a Jamaican Farewell, get over it and get on with season 2020.

What team in their right mind trades their fastest speedster?. It'll finally click for Frost within a couple of years, and he's going to embarrass us when we meet Hawthorn. Honestly, all the best Frosty.

Yeah, wonder if the Hawks will give him another 8 years for things to "finally click". Laughable. If it hasn't clicked by now, it won't.

I feel like we have given up Dustin Martin with the way some of these campaigners on here are carrying on.

quite the opposite really, I don't think they have panicked at all. if they had they would of made some of the dumb decisions poster's on this site have been ranting about.

You probably said the same when a few posters thought that the Neeld appointments was a mistake.

Didn't read demonland then and the neeld appointment was always a mistake made by a dud board.

If this thread is going to continue can we please refer to Frost by his full name - “Future Brownlow Medalist Sam Frost”.

I cannot think of any other player on our list who improved to the same extent in 2019 that Frosty did. Many in fact went backwards IMHO.

To say that there is no role for him with Lever and May having an injury-free preseason (which hasn’t happened yet) is ingenious and defies  the role that he played this year in a ramshackle back half.

I'll Put my hand up.

i was disappointed we let Watts go and disappointed we let Hogan go.

But I didn't know the full story and supported the club. I think we missed both but have also moved forward with a better list.

Also disappointed that Frosty's gone but think we have improved the list. 

Watts and Hogan haven't gone on yet to be unqualified stars of the like of Burgoyne, Jarman, Ablett Wanganeen, who can singlehanded affect a clubs fortunes. I am sure Frosty's not in their league and I reckon we have enough stars to step upthat we will not miss him.

im looking for our current list with the new additions to really step up and surprise many other clubs.

This is the first year of the Demons. We can win and continue for another 4 years as the kids hit their straps.

That is unlikely DP.  If you can reference anywhere (other than game day mascots) where we are "the Demons" pls i would be astounded.

That aspect of the club commenced back in the day, courtesy of the great Checker Hughes as you no doubt know, and began a slow dearh starting with Cam's attempt to change our colours to maroon and blue years back (working under cover on a covert Vlad operation to destroy any remnant of the Demon spirit...a la Fitzroy ... the only reasonable explanantion of course!) whilst gradually removing any reference to the 'scary' Demons in all marketing material and clothing etc.  The nail in the coffin the "we are Melbourne" vomit dished up a few years back.

Hmmm yeah you got me.

I refer to Demonland and support the Dees. Wear my old Melbourne Demons branded hats scarves shirts and jackets.

Perhaps this schizophrenic support is the root of our problems.

I have always argued that we are Melbourne ever since the aborted Hawthorn takeover. I continue to maintain the Melbourne name is our strongest ally in avoiding relocation etc. Also Melbourne should be more definitively used as marketing an promotion identity, leveraging off every other "Melbourne" campaign.

Still don't want to dilute the passion of my statement. We, Melbourne Football Club, must retain our rightful place as the premiere club.

We must win a premiership!

It's not  sycophancy, some don't just need to quote the bleeding obvious in every thread

If we have a poor year again of course Goodwin's job will be under the microscope

Not sure where you get the desperate from

This is amazing on Frost, liked him as a bloke, loved the fun of watching him take off on one of his runs, head in hands at some of his decision making and ball skills

This constant reference to speed, Richmond won the flag, and apart from a couple of small forwards, they had no real speeders, just good decision makers and ball users

No wonder Goody is going all in on Bennell and Murray.

We have negligently overlooked speed and outside run for years; and the penny finally dropped for the so-called brains trust.

 

Now the over-reach and massive gambling.

1. Strong Bennell > Murray consideration.

Surely you can do your own maths.

    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

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    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? As a consequence, the person re

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    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

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    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

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    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
