When will Demonland finally be consulted on match day strategy, team selection and general strategy?    

We will be interviewing Melbourne Football Club President Glen Bartlett on the next Demonland Podcast on Wednesday 1/7 @ 8:30pm If you have a question you would like us to ask let us know. L

Thank you. Happy with the outcome. We asked all the questions we wanted. If people aren't happy that we didn't dig hard enough well all I can say is they can start their own podcast.

Sadly I cannot tonight tU about to be locked up and with my Grand daughters tonight for the last time in 4 weeks and believe it or not they are more important to me than the MFC. I will listen later tonight or tomorrow. Yes I know what tonight is and I will be keen to see if hard questions are asked. I still stay with my statement that MFC members are too polite.

Good luck OD - enjoy your evening with the family. By the way - did you call in to SEN today? Breakfast Show?

Is learning it's lessons, a lesson or a learning?

Hi John. As far as I'm aware the word learning is a single noun and can't be used in a plural sense. To me it sounds as silly as someone offering their thinkings on a subject instead of their thoughts.

This interview was prerecorded as is my preference with guests. the second part of the podcast where @Grapeviney , @george_on_the_outer & I will discuss the Geelong match.

Its been 3 weeks in a row now the MFC have kept teams under 10 goals.

is this now a trend?

Is this one obvious place we've improved from 2020?

Fantastic interview

I agree serious depth Club is in good hands - I was surprised how much detail he gave and he didn’t hide from the targets or make any excuses.

Might be I missed my five minutes of fame 3183 Dee. Just home from the visit, they don’t live far from me but might well be 50 km now.

Still getting over all the crying when it was leaving time. They spent a lot of time with us and both sides are not happy but would rather be alive for them in the future.

Very tough mate - my parents in England live next door to my sister and her 4 kids - they haven’t been able to give the kids a hug for about 3 months now. Crazy times - I wish you and your family all the very best.

Do we know how many listeners the interview had.

Live is hard judge exact numbers because people obviously filter in and out. There were anywhere between 50 & 70 at a time. 

 Most of our listeners end up coming from Apple Podcasts and Android Podcasting apps as well as those that stream from SoundCloud on the site. After a week or two I’ll have clearer numbers.

Fairly clear it will not be an MCG sized oval if and when the Development near the G gets up.

Goodwin has a free pass for his contract term.

We need to be patient on all fronts .

Oh, yes, and that is a very good question, did I say I like being involved with the big end of town and chose the Dees as my vehicle to do just that, um, um, could you give us some money.

Very good interview well done to all involved. Sounds like Bartlett is committed to delivering us our 13th flag, and sounds like our home base is also a main objective which is brilliant. Go Dees

 Certainly exciting news about our HQ with social club within walking distance of the G, Bartlett sounded confident. Any guesses which areas?

Glad you raised this Rab, a jargon or buzzword whose repeated use has irritated listeners here. Annoyingly it appears to be spreading. According to discussion on English Language and Usage ,  "Actually, learnings sounds terrible to native English speakers. I never heard of it being used at all until I worked with people from India."  Perhaps propagators of its usage should be called Guru Bob or similar.

Its etymology, grammatically correct or otherwise, can be traced in print at least to Shakespeare. In  Cymbeline (1623) i. i. 43 The king..Puts to him all the Learnings that his time... as coach allows

I’m sorry that you are so cynical.

Excellent interview Guys. Thankyou

Glen answered most of what i wanted to hear and that is fine, he is a little bit more confident in the current gamestyle than i, so i will wait to see what transpires 

I just dont want to watch 60 i50’s for 6-7 goals each week. It’s rubbish, and that gamestyle has been with us for quite a while. 
 

but once again Great Interview

That's great detective work TC. My guess as the culprit would have been the USA and it's sports codes. However quite a few words that we consider to have been misspelt, mispronounced or bastardised by our american friends have actually been traced back to old english so I shouldn't be surprised really.

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane. Were th

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
