Welcome to Demonland Lachie Hunter


Recommended Posts

Didn't want him at the start purely because of his serious off field matters. Really hope we've done our due diligence here which I trust we have.

On a playing perspective, he was easily one one the best wingers in the club only a few years.

He was one player that would worry me the most because he was such a big accumulator and would punish us with his outside run. 

His inclusion means James Jordon goes back into his natural position of inside mid. He's far better valued there then Tom Sparrow imo with his inside and outside work.

Didn’t Stengel have issues before going to Geelong and look how that turned out. 

Let’s hope we get the same result with Hunter. 

I said that about 2 weeks ago when Lachie's name came up. Has something to prove to plenty of new people now.

Angus is just now putting the stamp on Lachie's invitation envelope to the Wingers Club next meeting at Lingers Bohemian Pad in Fitzroy!

Also To the outdated D/Lers NO Tmac is not getting any Wingers Club invites. His time has run out and he never was a true winger, cameos don't count.

Jeezuz he can run all day, take a mark and is an excellent kick to boot, Tim might have done alright with this one. Just need to get him in with the boys and get his head straight and look out in 2023. I trust our FD to get Lachie firmly into the fold.🙏💕

He will respect Gawn and our culture, he's seen how dominate our best looks like up close and personal, he's here to win premierships.

All false bravado down at the dogs, he's obviously had some issues with Bevo, he comes under no false pretences.

Stating the obviously he is a hard working skillful, damaging left footer, the perfect compliment to Langers on the other wing 

He'll be playing for a coach that has his respect and I'm sure Lachie will reciprocate with performances, head down, bum up proving the doubters wrong.

Here's some highlights of Lachie Hunter.

As long as he is over his personal issues, I think he will be a valuable contributor to the Demons.

I'm sure he'll look a lot better and in a Melbourne Demons jumper too! 😉



Our forwards will be licking their lips after watching his highlights. Beautiful, accurate, left foot weapon.

Lachie Hunter had a few good highlights from his 2021 season with the Bulldogs as well.

He is definitely a goal kicking wingman who is pretty good kick inside the forward 50.

We can easily play him on the opposite wing to Ed Langdon or even on a half forward flank.

That was mainly him kicking goals from a pocket. We don’t kick goals from a pocket, we kick to a pocket in an attempt to not kick goals.

Would have been better to see some kicks along the wing from him but you watch what your given.

Alright I've gotten over the shock of Lachie being a Demon

He was a gun back in 2018, seemed to play more midfield.  Does anyone know his positional changes over the years?  moved to full time wing later?

Obviously the major risk with him is the issues since 2020 and where is head is at. But we risk almost nothing.

Excellent trading by the demons

He didn't play many games this year but last year he played heaps more up forward due to Treloar coming in, they seemed to rotate Treloar and Smith on the wings a fair bit which took Hunter out of his permanent wing role

We are following the Melbourne tradition of going for left footers. Schache is a lefty too!

    RESILIENCE by Whispering Jack

    If the Demons are to win their Round 3 encounter with the Sydney Swans this week, then the frustration of last Friday night’s uncharacteristic performance against the Brisbane Lions cannot be allowed to live in the collective heads of the players.   What made the mediocrity of the first three and a half quarters of the encounter with the Lions so uncharacteristic was that it defied every aspect of the impressive months of preparation for the season the players underwent along with the

    FLAG DEFENCE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons unfurled their 2022 premiership flag early on Saturday afternoon at Casey Fields and commenced their campaign to earn the honour of back to back champions in 2023. They did so emphatically beating Footscray by 37 points in a contest they dominated throughout and, but for some wayward kicking for goal early in the piece, they could have determined the issue a lot earlier in the day than during the final term when the Dogs finally hit the wall. The Demons were forced to make

    DARK NIGHT by George On The Outer

    A pleasant, balmy Brisbane evening with perfect conditions for football turned into a bleak, dark night in more ways than one for the Demons on Friday night at the Gabba. Coming up against a Lions outfit which had been truly cut to shreds by Port Adelaide the previous week, with the Demons having accounted for the Dogs emphatically, it was reasonable for the droves of Melbourne supporters to expect to witness more pain being inflicted as payback for their loss to the same team in the previo
