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'

Number 3:

“Footy sucks sometimes” 

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

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k
