“Uncle” Greg Stafford. The bloke at the pub or BBQ gathering that loves to tell funny stories. Yes I’d hope he had a few bevvies because … well he’s no comedian !!  Just a query … is Stafford our “in need for dramatic improvement” forwards coach. My god, no wonder we kick to the deep forward pocket versus Cats/Swans/Magpies kicks to the hotspot on the top of the goalsquare. Hmmm. 
 

Anyway, congrats Tom Sparrow.  Spargo and ANB equal coaches runners up award.

You must be the most negative poster on demonland. Nothing is ever good.

Did you enjoy our premiership last year or not perfect enough?

Hahahah. Well, let’s clear the elephant in the room on that one…absolutely loved the Grand Final victory last year. Made a lifetime of supporting the Dees worth it…however, like many here, sitting on the couch in the middle of a 2 year lockdown was hardly how ai imagined it. It was very bitter sweet, if I’m being completely honest! I suppose this is why we were all so eager to see B2B. 
 

I think the only negativity I’ve shown is in regards to list management. I do not believe the list is as complete as it needs to be, if we are to go back to the top of the mountain. 2021 was the result of superior and supreme fitness, our depth wasn’t really tested. If you stand still, you go nowhere. I’m very eager to see what the club has planned this trade period. I am hopeful it’s not like last year, where the only experience we added was Dunstan, who played almost the whole season in the ressies. I hope Grundy/Gawn work out and one can become a damaging forward of some sort.

Just wanted to ask people's opinions on who will win this year's Keith "Bluey" Truscott Trophy for 2022?

There's an article about it found here: https://www.melbournefc.com.au/news/1229898

Personally, I think it will be either Clayton Oliver or Christian Petracca with Steven May as a dark horse to win it. I definitely think it will be pretty close this year!

My top 5 for the Demons Best & Fairest would be:

1) Clayton Oliver

2) Christian Petracca

3) Steven May

4) Max Gawn

5) Jack Viney

 

Anyway, please let me know who you think will be your top 5 in the Melbourne Demons Best & Fairest for 2022 ok?

 

The musical performers. They’ve been able to play a full 2 hour gig in the ‘short’ breaks.

My belief is we are in good shape. Whilst I understand your desire to add talent, I am a half full believer in Grundy. His best is way better than Jackson’s

we just need a big forward

    TRAINING: Wednesday 1st February 2023

    PICKET FENCE'S TRAINING REPORT REHAB  Clarry, Max, Farris-White, Melky, Matt Jefferson, Jakey Lever, Joel Smith & 1 Other I couldn't place. Glad to see the Club being ultra cautious with Clarry's thumb BUT the fact he is still troubled with it is worrying (God I hate Selwood) Got there at 10.50 to see Full match Simulation Game between the Blues and the Whites. Quite clearly the Blues were the A Team and the Whites were the possibles. Some interesting faces in the white Team h

    WIZARD333'S TRAINING REPORT I went down and it was locked out for first hour but could see through fence then allowed in. Max Gawn ran laps — it looks like a 3 to 4 week injury. Andy Moniz-Wakefield ran laps. Blake Howes was taken off late as was on restricted minutes. Adam Tomlinson loudest on track and a leader - surprised me but won't be in best 25. Jake Lever on bike and walking up n down stairs, yelling out as he does. Melky copped a niggle so ran laps but

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.

    DEE ZEPHYR'S TRAINING REPORT Morning all. First time at Goschs for a while, there’s a scoreboard set up which I’ve never seen here before. Possible match sim? Williams yelling out to players to get their hands off hips during drills. Gus looks fine to me. Absolutely., first two mins of match sim and his kicking is exquisite on both sides. He’s moving incredibly well.  Some observations from a match sim drill that lasted about 15-20 mins. The purpose se
