Ok, so getting back to footy... This is second hand info, passed onto me by someone who has spoken to family of players. Harmes has been chased by North this trade period. Roosy has been mak

Updated info for those interested :) if not please ignore.  A few clubs have come knocking about Angus Brayshaw again, nothing doing at this stage, but watch this space. they've also asked abo

For those interested I am hearing that we’d be very keen to have a chat to Adam treloar. If the pies are willing to pay a decent chunk of his salary we’d see him as a fit on the opposite wing to Langd

Yes, Luke 'Flighty' Jackson

Not saying he's gone of course, but its not totally safe

Nearly everyone from Perf wants to go back there.

It's Alan Bond Syndrome.

You should probably move on mate. Not healthy to be so obsessive over people on the internet you've never met.

It's a footy forum, perhaps time to remember that.

One of the most entertaining things this off season so far is to see you take the bait and carry on like a pork chop.

Thanks for the rumours and the entertainment

Petracca's just had a birds eye view of how the Pies promise the world then do a runner. Let's hope his manager is also Treloar's or Stephenson's.

 

Surely Colliewobbles are going to have a massive challenge attracting elite players after the way they treated Treloar. I’ve never seen anything like it. 
Entice an elite player away from their team with a massive salary offer. As soon as he arrives pressure him  to defer his salary, then keep doing that for a number of years. Then when it’s due effectively sack him. Then start spreading malicious untrue  rumours that the senior players don’t want you at the club. Wow. Good luck getting players there after that performance. 
mind you 72 million Americans just voted to re-elect Trump so anything’s possible.

Cats have beaten us and other clubs to an exciting young 202cm basketball talent Paul Tsapatolis.

Fair month for the Cats, play in GF, get best forward in the competition and a couple of other players, sign the most chased young ruck prospect around and get a bucketload of extra cash from the State, to improve their massive home ground advantage stadium.

It is easy to support some clubs.

I was about to hit like on your post until I read the final sentence.

Have a pop at Trump by all means but can we please leave the voters out of it. You’ll never unite if you disparage the other side. They had very good reasons for not voting Biden. And there's zero relevance/comparison between Treloar and Collingwood and Trump voters as if half of America voting republican is some sort of big surprise!

Plus I thought the footy forums were supposed to be apolitical anyways?

Every. Single. Time.

No, I don't reply every time. But I get sick of the baiting tbh. I'm here to talk footy and there's a group of posters here who do it rarely.

If you wish to keep politics off the forum then I suggest you simply note that a post you consider political is inappropriate.  Presenting your own view as you did is simply doing more of what you complain of.

Personally I have no problem with throw-away lines like in ItsTime's post that you complained about whether 'left' or 'right' -   they'd be too hard for the mods to deal with anyway.  Detailed arguments are another matter.

What bait? Seriously this is ridiculous.

I thought a young player with a giant leap might be given a nickname that suits. IMO Flighty is the perfect nickname for Jackson. We regularly apply nicknames to players that aren't necessarily the ones they get called by team mates. Many on here have profile names that illustrate this point, such as Lord Nev, DazzleDavey, petraccattack, etc

Lets move on, stop misreading the tea leaves and get some rumours happening!

Demonland IS life, dazzle.

Without it, I'd be using my time far more effectively, and frankly I can't have that.

I've heard a rumour that Max is shavings his beard for good, Oliver will be sporting a comb over and Trump orange tan from now on, Spargo has grown 15cm, and Steven May has changed his name to Steven Will

You can believe it, Nasher!

 

Oh, that is almost brilliant! Lots to look forward to - now to work with words on Brown's steel wool scalp.

Fair enough. I’ll take your point on board. From this post onwards no more politics from me.

I do wonder though. There have been numerous comments about Trump supporters on the footy forum that are allowed to pass without comment. Would posts about Biden supporters be let slide in the same way?

Trump fans are too busy working on their super dooopppeerrr “trucks”, adding more flags to them so they can get on “trains” to be worried about spending hours on Internet forums commenting on non-Trump voters surely?

    MOGGIES MASTERED by George on the Outer

    They say that herding cats is an impossible task but not for the Melbourne Demons who through relentless pressure, scored a commanding 25 point victory in Round 4 over Geelong at the MCG. The team that missed the AFL finals only once in the past dozen years were shown up by the new Demons of 2021 who have recorded their first 4-0 opening to the season in 21 years! Melbourne knew what was coming, and it was Geelong who were shown up for their inability to adapt to the 2021 style of foot

    UNDER MY SKIN by The Oracle

    The story goes that there’s a certain player from Geelong who has been seen in Moorabool Street crooning the old Sinatra classic, “I’ve got you under my skin.” His name is O’Connor and he’s been tasked to achieve one thing on Sunday by his coach, Chris Scott: to get under the skin of a Demon midfielder on Sunday and thereby tag him out of the big contest at the G. The idea behind the tactic is to not only blunt one of the team’s most destructive weapons but to distract them all from producing th

    MAX IN SPACE

    Demon skipper Max Gawn is one big unit at 208cm and lately he’s been standing even taller. We already know that he’s unstoppable in the air when going for a mark but with three consecutive victories to open the season, you might say that he has his head in the clouds.  And that is literally true thanks to a fan at Demonland.com who recently arranged for our big ruckman to go even further than the clouds but way beyond to the edge of space and into the stratosphere.

    CAPITAL PUNISHMENT by George on the Outer

    A 34-point win in the nation’s capital has seen the Demons kill the Giants hopes early in the 2021 season. It wasn’t only the scoreboard, but a succession of injuries to major players for GWS that has put paid to their aspirations. The winning result wasn’t just due to the opposition losing players, but also to the relentless pressure from this 2021 Melbourne side that put them in the winners circle. In past years, a 16 point deficit at the first change combined with a rampant Toby Greene w

    POWER AND THE PASSION by Whispering Jack

    The Demons ran out for their Qualifying Final match against the Fremantle Dockers at Casey Fields as the sounds of Midnight Oils’ “Power and the Passion cascaded over the mainly friendly pro-Melbourne crowd. It was a far cry from the season opener at Carrara in late January where few of their fans were in attendance in high 20’s heat and humidity and silence greeted every score from the slow-starting Demons. They ran away from the lowly Suns, won comfortably in the end and followed that with ano

    BREAK OUT by Whispering Jack

    Despite the chaotic events occurring in Canberra over the past few weeks, one thing is for certain. This weekend’s game at Manuka Oval in the nation’s capital between the GWS Giants and Melbourne will decide which of Scott Morrison or Leon Cameron is the most under the pump at this point in time.  This time twelve months ago, the Giants were coming off a season in which they had played off in a grand final. They opened up their 2020 campaign with a resounding 32-point victory in round 1 aga

    MARVELOUS PRESSURE by George on the Outer

    Is this a new form of Melbourne which has suddenly emerged in 2021?  In the past, whenever the pressure was applied, the team would falter early and as a consequence, it would more often than not, be forced to confront its own self-inflicted failure. But perhaps not so this year. The match at Marvel Stadium against the Saints provided an insight into how creating pressure, actually relieves it on the club, players and coach. Right from the start, Melbourne was there to make a stat

    STUCK IN THE MIDDLE by The Oracle

    Throughout the off season, St Kilda was touted as an improver and a possible challenger for a top four position mainly off the back of another good trade and draft period at the end of last year. Then in Round 1, the undermanned Saints made a shaky start and almost succumbed to the Giants but they managed to come home from a wet and woolly Sydney with the four points intact. For Round 2, they have a couple of handy players returning so they come into the the game at Marvel Stadium choc

    A SCRAPPY, SLOPPY SUCCESS by George on the Outer

    After what seemed like an eternity without Footy in Melbourne, the Demons and their fans produced a scrappy, sloppy yet successful return to the MCG. Yet is was against an interstate team from the furthest reaches of the country, but the 21K fans who made it through the gates, was way below expectations for numbers.  Sure it can’t have helped with all the difficulty that Ticketek imposed just to get a ticket, and since you just couldn’t walk up, perhaps the number wasn’t that surprising.

    UNFINISHED BUSINESS by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has unfinished business with Fremantle after that unexpected loss in their previous clash at Cazaly’s Stadium in Cairns cost it a place in last year’s finals campaign.   Back then, the tired Demons spluttered listlessly through the humid conditions in tropical far North Queensland playing in and losing two games in the space of four days and against two lowly clubs. The end result was much more than an embarrassment for the club given what was at stake at th

    PRACTICE PUMMELLING by George on the Outer

    Was this a practice for what lay ahead for the Demons in 2021 or was it an outcome to expect because it was used as a true practice game? Those of us on the outside will never know, but a 39 point loss to the Western Bulldogs was a pummelling in anyone’s language. We can draw some consolation from the players that Melbourne put on the field, with Toby Bedford, Jake Bowey, Kade Chandler, James Jordon and Tom Sparrow each getting a guernsey whereas they probably would not normally be in the f

    A WALK IN THE PAST by Whispering Jack

    On Monday night, the Melbourne Football Club handed out four life memberships. Two of those awards went to men who are long gone. Charles ‘Chubby’ Forrester and James ‘Jas’ Byrne played for the club in the 1870s, even before the Victorian Football Association was formed. The other two are current skipper Max Gawn and swingman Tom McDonald, who almost left the club at the end of the pandemic-affected 2020 season. Some fans might have raised their eyebrows and wondered whether the emphasis on hist
