Not much to talk about at the moment......so let's delve back into our recent and long past history and ask the question:

WHO SAID THAT?

As each one is correctly identified, another will be posted.


 

 

OK no correct answers yet, but am impressed with a couple of options put forward...Remember these are only MFC icons......

So I'll give you a couple more to see if anyone can get the answers....

1    1.       “I would have 100 shots a week at training….”

A          A:  Brad Green, Demonland Podcast 20/6/18

 

2.    “I train day on, day off.  Day on.  Day off….Todays’s day off”

A:  Allen Jakovich   in Garry Lyons book “The Demon Within”

 

3.      “ If blokes got in my way, I knocked them over…and sometimes it was a little too high..”

A: Rod Grinter.....correctly identified by  Left Foot Snap

 

4.     "The old Melbourne’s gone….done and dusted.  Finished….and that will never reappear again"

A:  Paul Roos.  Demonland Podcast 13 June 2018  37.55  correctly identified by Roger Mellie

 

5.     “Healy off,  Ellingworth on….bloody weak as [censored]…”

A: R.D. Barassi:  correctly identified by  Roger Mellie

 

6.     “Any game against Collingwood, you had to get up…it’s a long week in football and every 2nd bastard you run into is a Collingwood    supporter..”

A:  Allen Jakovich     Demonland podcast 21 October 2017.       37.25

Another one:

7. 

The voice became more agitated.  “Open the door – it’s Norm Smith”

I said: “Hell is that you, Red Fox?”

Norm put his shoulder to the door and it nearly came off its hinges.  He burst in and wrestled all 3 of us, and it bloody hurt too; we were bruised.  ….” None of you will ever refer to me as The Red Fox ever again!”

Who said “ Hell is that you , Red Fox?” thereby giving Norm Smith his nickname ?

A:    Ian Thorogood.  From “The Red Fox” by Ben Collins

Could be Matthew Lloyd.  Could be Cameron Mooney.  Could be any of a number of our esteemed and pickled Demonland posters, too, depending on the kind of shots.

'Tonight was unacceptable & probably a reflection of where we've been for the year'......'but we are going to work really hard at getting ourselves out of it'

'We've got a lot of work to do, but I've got full confidence in the players & the club'.......'We are in a poor position right now'

'We need to take responsibility as coaches, as players, as a whole club & how we build our program & make it better'.....'But what I am going to say is that we have the people here in terms of the players'

“Footy sucks sometimes” 

Someone said it after a loss to North to start the season 0-9 in the mid-late 2000’s.

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    POSTGAME: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    Once again inaccuracy and inefficiency going inside 50 rears it's ugly head as the Demons suffered their second loss on the trot and their fourth loss in five games as they go down to the Pies by 38 points on Kings Birthday at the MCG.

    It's Game Day and the Demons are once again faced with a classic 8 point game against a traditional rival on King's Birthday at the MCG. A famous victory will see them reclaim a place in the Top 8 whereas a loss will be another blow for their finals credentials.

    BOILED LOLLIES by The Oracle

    In the space of a month Melbourne has gone from chocolates to boiled lollies in terms of its standing as a candidate for the AFL premiership.  The club faces its moment of truth against a badly bruised up Collingwood at the MCG. A win will give it some respite but even then, it won’t be regarded particularly well being against an opponent carrying the burden of an injured playing list. A loss would be a disaster. The Demons have gone from a six/two win/loss ratio and a strong percentag

    CLEAN HANDS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons headed into town and up Sydney Road to take on the lowly Coburg Lions who have been perennial VFL easy beats and sitting on one win for the season. Last year, Casey beat them in a practice match when resting their AFL listed players. That’s how bad they were. Nobody respected them on Saturday and clearly not the Demons who came to the game with 22 players (ten MFC), but whether they came out to play is another matter because for the most part, their intensity was lacking an
