[censored] me Majak is an absolute monster of a specimen. Imagine that running at you at full pace - would definitely need new undies!

here’s hoping that he’s got it together mentally now.  We have had far too many looks like Tarzan, Plays like Jane’s over the years. Fingers crossed for a looks like he ate Tarzan and plays like that too. 
 

 

I think we've seen what he offers. He's no world-beater but he's going to give us some insurance for at least the first month or so.

It's quite possible he doesn't play a game for the Dees, even if he does sign on.

That said, I think it's just sensible short-term recruiting.

Can anyone explain why Angus Brayshaw is now permanently 23cm above the surface of the Earth?

Is this a product of new high altitude training or has he spent too much time on the low-G treadmill?

It's gonna mess with his GPS data for sure.

Because Majak is pushing the earth down behind him.

Really good to see Gus running in boots, maybe round one for him is a good chance. 

Majak really is something, makes every ripped player at the club look like they haven’t touched a weight. We have a good number over experienced coaches at the club now so perhaps with their help we can get something magical out of Majak. Ultimately if we take him on it’s a low risk move.

Does invitation to train offer us first dibs? Is there anything stopping someone offering them a contract, or us offering other club’s train on players one?

Pretty sure when HB was training with us last year we had first dibs.

I have no idea what the rules are but it would be poor form for another club to pinch him from under our nose.

Having said that didn't Freo draft a guy in the middle of a training session with us?

Yes but he proved not up to it. We lost but we won. I don't remember his name; that's how good he was.

I'm so sick of Angus Brayshaw and training reports. He hasn't put on much muscle tone in about 3 years and I don't know why he hasn't pushed harder to play as an inside mid. He seems very content with just being a so-so player on the outside. I sort of hope he secretly requests a trade to a club that gives him the opportunity.  Otherwise, what are we seriously doing here.

I agree with most of that except in the photos on the first page he looks as fit as he ever has, all whilst coming back from a serious injury.

i want to see him running from contest to contest

too often he sits in the space between; the amount of times i've seen him dawdling around the park drives me to distraction

that's what happens when you play an inside mid on the outside.

I'm sure this image of deelightful deeversity warrants some respectful humour but blewed if I can come up with it myself!

Ripped doesn't mean aerobic capacity, strength, footy smarts or natural footy ability. Let's see him play.

I can remember when Plugger Locklet decided one season to get "fitter",  lose weight and improve body shape. He became a dud because, although he more than his fair share of footy smarts and ability, it was his weight and strength, not his running, that got him results. Please, do not look at body shape as a marker for performance.

Point well illustrated. On the other end of the spectrum was one Gary William Buckenara. A hardly muscular, bespectacled, pasty nerdy looking bloke with a rather awkward and non athletic looking physique to say the least. But he could also play.

Not saying it does, and never said anything of the sort. I just made an observation of his physique. 

I’ll be honest when I’ve seen him play for North I’ve often felt he hasn’t had a great ability to read the play. Maybe some different minds and a change of location will help him, maybe the club won’t even go with selecting him in the end. Who knows what’s going to happen, but it’s in his hands to prove his worth.

The boots he’s wearing are made using the same technology as the new Maglev high speed trains in China. He should be capable of running at speeds of up to 600kph.

Given the available evidence that may be a valid scientific insight. According Newton’s Third Law of Motion ‘For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction’  As he bestrode Earth he has created space for others hence Angus Air. Which may explain the praise of almost mythic proportion some posters ascribe to Comet Noir’s appearance at Casey Fields.

Majak it appears is a force of nature to be reckoned with.

    PREGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    The Demons return to the MCG to take on the Saints in Round 11 on the back of two straight losses in a row. With Jake Lever out with concussion who comes in and who goes out?

    VOTES: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Last week Captain Max Gawn consolidated his lead over reigning champion Christian Petracca in the Demonland Player of the Year Award. Steven May, Alex Neal-Bullen & Jake Lever make up the Top 5. Your votes for the loss against the Blues. 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
