THE LAST HURRAH - Demon Literature

Anything that Supermercado writes is worth a read. After his debut book, I’m certain this will make it to the top book sellers list if not a Nobel Prize for Literature. All Demon fans should buy this - you can order your copy here - THE LAST HURRAH

By “top book sellers list” you do mean New York Times Bestseller List, right? ?

I just pre-ordered my copy ❤️?

Wonder how much he had to cut out for brevity. Even Supermercado's blog posts are war and peace.

I still have the Great Deepression on my shelf ready to read after that marvellous Premiership I hear all the other teams' supporters talking about.

I couldn't bear revisiting it until we've definitively put it all behind us however.

Big ups to Supermercado. Love that Mike Sheahan has contributed a foreword. 

Uncanny timing. As I was overseas at the time, Adam sent a Great Deepression to my mother's shoebox in Cairns in maybe late 2016, the misery-tome taking up a third of her available living space. She recently signed up to the Marie Kondo cult and has been putting the hard word on me about the book over the past couple months.

Next week, I go to Cairns for the first time since it arrived, and looked forward to a) relieving my poor mother's newly-provoked clutter-stress, and b) catching up on my MFC reading. Now I'm probably an extra 800 pages behind, and will have to get The Last Hurrah sent to my mum's tiny apartment because I'm generally a [censored] nomadic son.

Thank you @Whispering_Jack and all, also to Slattery Publishing/Hardie Grant for giving me the chance to turn pro. If you'd like to contribute to Jeff Bezos' next divorce settlement you can also pre-order at Amazon.

And yes, I am very much hoping that by the end of September the title is rendered irrelevant. Should come with a free texta so you can alter it in the event of another flag.

Hello all, apologies for dragging this thread up for another plug, but the book is scheduled to be in bookstores tomorrow. Make a scene if yours doesn't carry it. I spoke to Radio TAB about it this morning. Fortunately they didn't ask for my views on the Globe Derby quaddie.

In the photo above I’ve got most of them, but who is the Whately lookalike next to Hassa in the front row, and the bearded one 2nd from left at back? 

Is it Ken Emselle in the front?

We had the first two three-peats in VFL/AFL history! This is a pic from The Last Hurrah. I love the three wiggling fingers. 

Edit: I know Collingwood won four in a row but that doesn’t count because that’s four and not three, and because they’re Collingwood

I forgot about Collingwood, which is easily done.

Their "4-peat" was in an era where you could win a flag by your captain challenging and defeating the opposition captain in a mule wrestling contest.

If not for them we could boast a six-peat. ?

Thank you! For anybody who's keen the audio is here. Nice to be on SEN for the first time not answering a quiz or whinging on the talkback line.

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    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
