Oh god, it's incredible isn't it. i guess the difference is my information doesn't come from facebook and bigfooty for whatever difference that makes. 

I've said here multiple times where my information comes from, how about you tell us about your source?

Brodie Smith signed yet btw?

Serious question - is that what you’ve heard?

I rate Mahoney - I’d be disappointed if this is the case.

 

He's applied for the Essendon Head of Football job

Updated info for those interested :) if not please ignore. 

  1. A few clubs have come knocking about Angus Brayshaw again, nothing doing at this stage, but watch this space. they've also asked about Christian Salem and been told a flat no. 
  2. there will be a few players in brand new roles in 2020, one in particular is James harmes who will have a role imv much more suited to him
  3. I still believe Tom McDonald will end up at Essendon for 2021 as a key defender. 
  4. several clubs in addition to those reported are interested in Neville Jetta. 
  5. as mentioned by others there are several mature age players that are being shopped around to other clubs, there is a clearing of the decks going on. 
  6. Brayden Ham is a player of interest for us and has been for a while
  7. Nathan Jones has been told there is a real possibility he won't play a game in 2021. he's essentially been retained as an assistant coach, and to also provide some depth in case of an injury. my information is he won't play unless required to play as a midfielder.

Ham would be a very interesting get with upside. Very slight, but has a bit of dash and low dart left foot.  I'm surprised the bombers aren't offering him a contract. In a good side, he could be a bit of an x factor. Then again, the bombers probably arent a good side next year.

They should reduced free agency period and trade week period to just be a week. Stop drawing the [censored] out and just get it done. If they want to drive excitement, then that's how to do it. When it's dragged out, we all tune out.

They do all the maneuvering in the previous weeks anyway. Make everything a single week, so that clubs have time for dominoes to fall for deals 2 and 3.

I reckon they drag it so that fox footy and sen get 2 weeks of clicks on rubbish articles.

Hypothetical: Clubs may have more of an idea of what's happening than what has been reported in the media. Mahoney, for all his faults, is quite often ahead of the curve with trading/drafting changes. What if we're finding a way to get ourselves 2 higher picks because the AFL will reduce the 3 draftees minimum rule?

We don't need picks this year we need some good ready to go players 

Are we not in the premiership window?

Get a winger a  small smart forward and maybe a small defender

Picks in a S$%t draft is just wasting time in my opinion

Pretty rough on all fronts. 30K - 50K new cases a day, and it's no longer abstract. 2 of the 3 in our household have had a week's isolation waiting for test results after being in prolonged contact with Covid cases. Scary and unsettling. Now all locked down again, all work cancelled, smallish govt $$ handout, but not the same. People generally struggling (mentally), and heading into winter isn't helping. Sorry to be so gloomy. As for riding, limited to 1 km radius/1 hour. But still better than last time where there was no riding at all, so I'm managing to knock myself around riding up and down suburban streets.

Where in France?

Not gloomy.  While our case load has been minuscule in comparison, here in Melbourne we understand some of what you describe with the lockdown conditions. Best wishes to you and yours, bing.

That's exactly why they extended it - to keep AFL in the media spotlight for longer into the off-season. The irony is, by dragging it out, they make it more dull and kill the interest. For me personally, I was hyped for off-season, but with free agency running for a while and now trade week, I've already stopped tuning in and will just check here next week for news and opinions.

Same thing goes for draft night. Having it split across two nights is ridiculous. These are kids that 99% of people have never even heard of. This isn't a US sport like NBA where college sports are popular and the kids are older etc. It's just stupid. I think I read they were changing it back to one night this year? If so, good.

I've not heard much inside goss since before off-season this year. All I know is we are trying to get up the draft order a bit this year and want TMac off the books.

    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. Binman will do his regular stats files segment for the game against the Bombers and will also preview the upcoming match against the Dockers. He will not be taking any questions. 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.
