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.

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.

2. You say yourself that one more average year = essentially goodbye.

 

Surely you can do your own maths.

    SUNSMART by George on the Outer

    If you don’t want to get sunburnt, you follow the Sunsmart rules.  Melbourne took the advice and with their season on the line, avoided getting burnt by the Gold Coast Suns, with a gripping 17 point win. It was a match that could have gone either way, with the sides within a kick of each other for all but the final minutes of the final quarter. Melbourne had stretched the lead earlier in the game to 18 points, but that quickly evaporated to a neck and neck race to the finish.  Finally,

    NORTH OF THE BORDER by The Oracle

    The outcomes of Melbourne’s recent games against the Gold Coast Suns are a pretty good barometer of how the teams are faring. The Demons easily accounted for them twice in 2018, the last win being a 96-point cakewalk at the MCG in Round 20 when they scored a whopping 21.17.143 to 7.5.47. Ironically, Melbourne’s score of 9.3.57 at the first break that afternoon is leading its highest score for a full game to date this year by 3 points. In those days, they played fast, skillful football, moved th

    PACK YOUR BAGS by George on The Outer

    The scene was captured by the TV camera’s before the match with a view of the Melbourne side’s bags packed next to the team bus to facilitate their flight up north to the AFL hub where they will play their next matches. However, on the basis of the efforts against Richmond, unless things change, and change rapidly, there will be some who will be told to pack their bags on a more permanent basis. Once again, the supporters got much the same story from this match against Richmond, as

    Thankfully they moved this week’s game from Sydney where the sun shines and the virus breeds ever so slowly and almost nobody returns a positive test. The change of fixture comes at precisely the right time to allow everyone in town to head to the MCG on Sunday at around 3:30pm, not to catch up with what’s going on inside the ground but rather, to do what’s fashionable for woke folk in 2020 — pulling down statues. It’s time for Kevin Bartlett and Leigh Matthews to go but you can’t touch Norm Smi

    LESSONS IN LOSING by George on the Outer

    Turn up for the game and look like you want to win it.  Melbourne lost this game to Geelong, a game after a couple of extended breaks, looking like they were at the end of a 22 game season. Right from the start there was a lack of intensity across the board, as the Demons played exactly the type of game that the ageing Geelong list wanted. Geelong repeatedly played possession footy, to avoid having to run those ageing legs, something that Melbourne failed to exploit.  To use the oft quot

    QUARRANTINO by Whispering Jack

    At a little after 4.00pm last Saturday, the MCG ceased to be the centre of the AFL universe. That was when the AFL’s el supremo Gil McLaughlin announced that the Bombers’ Conor McKenna had returned a COVID-19 positive result and declared that the game set for the following day between Essendon and Melbourne was postponed.  What followed was truly the stuff of a pulp fiction novel. We witnessed a suitcase load of mental gymnastics and spin calculated to let McKenna (and the Essendon Football

    WHADDA WE SING? by Whispering Jack

    When the Melbourne team sang “The Grand Old Flag” last Saturday at Marvel Stadium in the absence of skipper Max Gawn, Ed Langford and Adam Tomlinson who were first time winners at their new club and Jayden Hunt, the leading goal kicker of the day it was passed off as an honest mistake. Taken in isolation, it most probably was accidental but the problem is that little accidents have been happening far too often in the club’s recent history and, in this case, it was symptomatic not only of a day t

    A POINT OF DIFFERENCE by George on the Outer

    It was Melbourne v Carlton at the comics stadium; a game between 16 and 17 in 2019. How could anyone pick a winner?  There had to be a point of difference, and so it would prove to be as the Demons literally fell over the line at the end, by a solitary point. In an almost complete replica of the Richmond v Collingwood game two nights previously, one of the sides (Melbourne in this case) rushed out to a five goal lead in the first quarter, while the Blues failed to bother the goal umpir

    EXPOSED FORM by The Oracle

    Carlton fancies itself to beat Melbourne at Marvel Stadium on Saturday and, based on exposed form, why not? The Blues took it right up to the reigning premiers in their last up start and the Demons were simply horrible against the Eagles at Optus Stadium. That opening game of the season revived all of the nightmares of 2019 for a team that went inside the 50 metre arc 45 times, an advantage of 10 times over the home side and yet lost by almost five goals. Such statistics sum it up for a gam

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan
