If we gave Smith a three year contract, he contributed strongly for a flag push for two seasons and had one season of pension padding, that is money extremely well spent in my eyes.

I concur with Nasher. I must be one of the few Demonlanders that think we can salute in 2021.  And I genuinely do. I see shades of Geelong 2006 and Richmond 2016 in this Melbourne side.  Not

Mate, i totally understand people pointing out i got this one wrong. but surely you understand things change in silly season. as of 3 days ago when i last posted this my source of information was very

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.

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

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

    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.

    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
