Issac Smith will be a demon in 2021. 

I don't know 100% what the delay is about, but the dees do tend to wait for the window to make things public. 

I suspect before Sunday Issac will be rolled out in a red and blue polo. 

Well this is turning out to be a total load of crap isn't it! Mental note: When you word your initial post like this, you don't get to use the out of 'oh you know, it's silly season. Things change'. Criticism deserved.

Appreciate that dazzle. Apologies for the disappointment I’ve caused to any posters. its a strange time of the year 

Yeah I can't quite get all the disappointment! Things change at rapid pace, I'm confident your info was probably right at that point in the week but then the 11th hour bids out of no-where come in. Credits in the bank, keep on posting and don't worry about all the other stuff, you're Dr Evil! You should be focusing on taking over the world (or something like that) :p.

Criticism of Dr Evil is rightly deserved. It is the silly season and whispers and inside information is certainly appreciated but this guy continually doubled down and categorically stated that Smith would 100% be a Demon. 

Things most certainly are fluid at this time of the year but It will be almost impossible to take anything Dr Evil says seriously ever again.

Geelong's version of 'brown paper bags' at it again!

Glad we didn't keep throwing more money at him. 

Geelong will carry this handicap for some time - we will not. One less 'perhaps two years' on the table for the MFC, with another year at the respite home and medical guidance. I could not see Smith playing out a full season across four quarters each game with any likelihood. Handy, but not essential to our needs. Brown is another issue, a lock-step forward with potency. It is not a great problem that we missed out on Smith - it is a problem for the Cats, far sooner than later.

The way I see it @Dr evil MAY have been correct at a given point in time, and then Isaac Smith changed his mind. If that's what happened then perhaps then the good doctor was quasi-correct.

I have no problem with the mail that @Dr evil provided. It was the method by which that mail kept arriving.

He was completely  smug in his protestations that Smith would 100% be a Demon. He didn't endear himself with me and it seems many others on here with his assertions that ultimately proved 100% wrong.

You cannot be half pregnant. 

He may have good mail and good contacts and I would not have minded if he got this one wrong, as things can definitely change very quickly at this time of the year, if he hadn't been so arrogant with his declarations.

Arrogant? Pretty rough I reckon mate. Pretty sure 99% of posters could recognise I was having a bit of a laugh. I was confident in my info but things clearly changed but I certainly don’t think I was arrogant. Outside of a few posters I think most worked out I wasn’t taking things too seriously pretty quickly.

Don’t be so sure mate. I’m genuinely shocked at some of the reactions haha. Some legitimate cry babies on here. Toys out the cot completely 

Look mate, you're the one who looks like the grand goose on this forum and the joke is most clearly and certainly on you, not the posters overreacting. 

You say you "weren't taking things too seriously" but stated on several occasions in bold that Smith was 100% going to be a demon and not to worry. Think about how silly that is for a minute. Very silly. 

The irony is that YOU were the one that took things too seriously, so rather than deflect in all of this and make out as if you were just "having a laugh", swallow some of that pride and take the criticism that you, and only you, set yourself up for. 

Several posters on this forum have good intel but post when a deal is being finalised. Maybe take that approach next time eh?

??? Mate. A lot of my posts were jokes with other posters. I posted info I was very confident in and I’ll cop criticism for it and have been via this and via pm. I even went as far as apologising at one point. So definitely taking the criticism on board.
 

All people who have been having a crack at me have really achieved is made other posters who have information feel the need to be ultra cautious about posting it which is pretty horrible on a fan forum.

Dr Evil made a call and got it wrong - [censored] happens. 

On the other hand he created some humour and interesting discussion.

FFS get over it guys

BBO, are you suggesting that Demonland is being increasingly hijacked by overly angry, humourless and self - righteous twats?

    GAMEDAY: Rd 19 vs Fremantle

    It's Game Day and the Demons have a golden opportunity to stamp their 2024 finals credentials as well as make amends for their disastrous first meeting against the Dockers earlier in the season when they take on Fremantle at Optus Stadium.

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    EARLY BIRDS by KC from Casey

    Wet, slippery conditions and threatening rainfalls greeted the VFL Bombers at the end of their long journey southeast of the big city on Sunday. The threatening weather combined with the fact that neither side had realistic prospects of advancing to action in September, meant that spectators gathered at a cold Casey Fields weren’t expecting a classic exhibition of football. Nor did they get one. Instead they were presented with a dour struggle that never reached great heights. It was a

    HEAVENS ABOVE by Molly Melbourne

    Who said the football gods and scoreboard attendants at the MCG don’t have a sense of humour? The gods spent a whole week teasing Demon and Bomber fans alike about Saturday night’s game. About how the entire match would be dominated by the hulking, brooding figures of 205cm Sam Draper and his 2IC Peter Wright lapping it up in the absence of Melbourne skipper and the club's No.1, No 2, No 3 and No 4 ruckman Max Gawn in the wake of that ankle injury. They painted pictures of Simon Goodwin ne

    The Demonland Podcast will not be LIVE again this week.

I will post the show here once I receive Binman's stats files. You can also find it wherever you get your podcasts from. We will return in our regular format once I return after the Dockers match.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 18 vs Essendon

    It’s game day and the Demons face a massive test which may determine whether they have what it takes to play finals this season. The task has been made all the more difficult without their Premiership Captain Max Gawn.
