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.

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?

    THE TASMANIAN TIGER by Whispering Jack

    I first saw Ben Brown on a cold Tuesday night in May, 2013 playing for the Werribee Tigers against Queanbeyan in a televised Foxtel Cup game before a sparse crowd at Etihad Stadium. His teammate and former Demon Jordan Gysberts was the star of the side’s 85-point belting of the hapless ACT club but the then 20 year old, 200cm Brown was also a stand out.  Earlier that year, the athletic big man had left his native Tasmania in an effort to make the grade after being overlooked in three drafts

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: The Cure It could be coincidental but since the AFL Free Agency and Trade Period began, the State of Victoria has recorded eight consecutive days of no new active cases and no deaths from Covid19. It might be a little early to announce that a cure for this dreaded virus has been discovered but one thing can be said with some certainty after following the ins and outs of the free agency and trading process — mankind is still a long way off finding a cure for boredom.

    CHANGES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: A very strange year Things might have been somewhat hairy when the 1919 football season opened up in the wake of the ending of a world war and in the middle of a pandemic that took millions of lives but it’s difficult to imagine a more unusual football season than the one that ended a week or so ago. For starters, the footy is supposed to finish on that one day in September on the MCG in mild spring weather; not deep into October at the Gabba amid warnings of tropical storms and h

Mental Health facility run by the inmates.   E- The grade you get when you don’t make F- F- Finals. What are they? G- Goals. Lack of them. Need a forward who can kick them….lots! H- Hub. Where players got to live with people you can’t stand. I- Injuries. Miracle cure provided by Dr. Burgess.

    WASH, RINSE, SPIN, REPEAT! by George On The Outer

    Although the Demons got over the line in their must win final round game against the hapless Bombers, they ensured it was Groundhog Day for their supporters who well remember what happened three years ago (although, this time they at least enjoyed the success of victory). Melbourne had its customary start dominating play and having plenty of chances in front of goal, only to find itself down on the scoreboard at the first change. Inaccurate kicking, particularly from set shots would have pu

    THE LUCK OF THE DRAW by Whispering Jack

    The long awaited clash between Melbourne and Essendon is almost upon us. Thirty-seven rounds of AFL football have passed by since the two clubs met on a balmy early April night last year in a game that produced a high scoring shootout at the MCG with the Bombers prevailing by 18 points. It was their only meeting for 2019 and happened at a time when the pandemic was something on the far distant horizon. Several months later when the 2019 season ended, the AFL issued the first of its fixtures

    THERE’S STILL A HEARTBEAT by George on the Outer

    When bottom side Adelaide scrapped together a win over the Giants last week, a tiny glimmer of hope opened up for the Demons’ finals chances. The patient was in intensive care but not quite finished — there was a faint pulse, a heart beating ever so slightly but was it enough when two more wins and other results were needed to fall their way? The first step was the resuscitation of a team that had lost its last two matches against sides then sitting fifteenth and sixteenth on the ladder. On

    THE FINAL HUMILIATION by The Oracle

    On Sunday, the Melbourne Football Club that won three consecutive games by in excess of 50 points last month returns to the Gabba, the scene of the last of those victories which was a 56 point drubbing of Collingwood. The Demons got off to a good start and won every quarter with a ruthless and powerful brand of football. They kicked 16 goals that day, their accuracy in front of goal a tribute to the skills the put on display throughout the afternoon and evening. In the four matches playe

    GIVEN THE OLD HEAVE HO’ by George on the Outer

    Fremantle gave Melbourne the old heave ho’ from playing finals in 2020, in conditions that the Demons yet again failed to handle.   With the whole season on the line and the need to win to stay in contention for finals, what the fans saw was much the same as they have been witnessing so many times before — a complete debacle and capitulation against a side that sat 15th on the ladder before the game.     Promises made after the loss to the 16th placed Sydney Swans were rendered h

    GETTING THE HEAVE HO by Bananabender

    The ute barely made it up to Cairns in time for us to check into the motel, fling a cane toad out the bathroom. and head over to Cazaly’s Stadium where we took up our position on the wing. There, we saw a completely different Melbourne to the one we watched on the screen only a few nights earlier from Alice Springs. This lot wore similar colours and Maxy dominated the ruck but the similarities ended there - the Demons were simply dreadful against the Swans. They started sluggishly, were spe

    A CLANGER IN CAIRNS by George on the Outer

    Having fought back into finals contention, the Demons had it all before them when facing a lowly Sydney in Cairns.  But in typical Melbourne fashion, they threw away the opportunity to cement their spot in the eight with a clanger of a game.  Right from the start, there was little to enthuse from the Melbourne players, who appeared to think that they only had to turn up, enjoy the North Queensland sun, and take away the four points.  Compared with the furious ground wide pressure of the

    TEN MINUTES LATE by Whispering Jack

    The late Norm Smith, who played in four Melbourne premierships and coached another six, was a strong disciplinarian. Known as the Red Fox for his auburn hair and his cunning, Smith was a man of a different age to the here and now. Born during the Great War, he survived the Spanish Flu Pandemic, grew up in depression times, played mostly through the Second World War and its aftermath and coached in a period of rebuilding and recovery to a time of prosperity. Smith’s success was built on team
