@Slartibartfast Gotta know where this name comes from!

Douglas Adams? Out of 'The Hitch-hikers Guide to the Galaxy? Great and very amusing writer...

Two Sheds Jackson left a long post on here before he departed, still remember reading it…

Cue diversion of thread to Monty Python references now. Endless Fun!

8-year-old me laughs at @titan_uranus 🤭

Current-day me laughs at @wobbleguts😂

My fave avi belong to the poster formerly known as The Jackson Six, now known as @The Jackson FIXcoz funny af pic.  Also @deanoxcoz love lil Alex. And @Return to Glorycoz love Alan Partridge.

Big LOLZ that @Skuithas folks believing his name is a portmanteau of skirt/suit. Who on god’s green earth would love a hybrid garment of clothing enough to adopt it as a username??? And even then, you’d go skorts, surely!

I knew you had taste WCW but this is next level

A couple of Jamesons into the evening, I admit, but here I am, LOL-ing entirely to myself. Thank you, good Sir!

And dear old 'Acme', mysterious 'Amazon' of my childhood (which, by the way, was in Warner Brothers 1.0, not the later Sophie Monk reboot!)

OLISIK

To be fair, Olisik was one of the first here to identify Clayton Oliver as a top prospect (before he was even heard of) If not the first

I remember him sticking his neck out and not long after, the chat about Oliver heightened

It's true he's more visible when the team doesn't do well but that reasoning can apply to a stack of others as well.  His harshest critics can often be just as miserable

I just sometimes can’t believe how f’ing long I’ve been posting here. I was in high school… now I am… the proud owner of back pain and mortgages.

 

Absolutely this, Jaded. It's a weird feeling knowing I've been posting and talking to some people here longer than most friends IRL, yet have only met a handful of people a handful of times.

The Season Review & Trade Wrap podcast RFI thread has flushed out a few shy goodies, along with the seasoned warriors. My favourite, for its alpha and numeric mind bends, is @NeveroddoreveN. Owner to elaborate?

Straight after winning our GF @Lucifers Herochanged username to Premiers 2021 or similar only to change it back to Lucifer’s Hero as soon as was allowed since many on here (me included) expressed how much we loved the original name. Probs coz many on here (again, me included) love Luci. 💕

LOL!  I felt like a lost soul when I changed my name and had to wait a whole month to become Lucifers Hero again, except that the 'new' name didn't have an apostrophe which needless to say was promptly picked up by @Demonstone.  I've been meaning to put the apostrophe back but I kind of like that it riles him😉

Lucifer's Hero was created at the time JImmy died.  For me he was a Hero not for any particular thing but for how he lived his life and gave his all to everything he did:  Demons, Reach, Family etc.  I toyed with preceding Hero with 'Dees', 'Devil', 'Demons' but 'Lucifer' sounded more fun and cheeky. 

I'm not sure when or who shortened it to 'Luci'.  I think it was one of these rascals😉@Bitter but optimistic@Demonstone@daisycutterwho would of course write 'luci' as he only uses lower case!  It is an endearing moniker and I really like that many DL's have adopted it.

On the subject of not knowing if we've lost a DL'er to the other side.

The day after we were eliminated from the finals I had a pm from @old deeto let me know that he wouldn't be on DL anymore, to not worry as he hadn't died.  I confess to shedding a tear as I would miss him on DL. 

Well folks, it was the fastest resurrection you have ever seen!  Within a mere 24 hours he was back posting🤩💕

Okay I loved your name as it was, but knowing it’s about Jimmy has just bumped it up to next level adoration. 💕

And despite revelling in the euphoric aftermath of our premiership, I was sad to see your name change, and equally as happy to see you go back to Lucifer’s Hero, sans apostrophe or otherwise. 

 I heard it was @Bitter but optimisticwho shortened it to Luci which is surprising as it’s probs the nicest thing he’s ever called anyone. 😂

Loveya Luci xxx

I wanna change mine but I gotta get to enough posts before the forum allows me to!

You’ve only got six posts to go. Carn fellah, let’s have a back n forth to get you there! Okay, I’ll start it: so, what’s it like to NOT feel you have to post every single thought you have or have ever had? Asking for a friend who likely clocked up 100 posts in the first 10 minutes of joining DL. 😁

I had beers with you back in 2009 after a NAB game in Launceston. Roughead kicked to last goal of the game for us to lose by 3 points. I was with Lukey26 from Demonology. 

I remember Lukey26 from Demonology. Wasn't afraid to speak her mind!

I’ve thought about that a lot over the years too. I’ve been on Demonland for a really long time, but the only members I’ve ever personally spoken to are Andy and WJ, @Grapeviney@Jaded No More, @old55 and @Slartibartfast, and all only fairly anecdotally, and a really long time ago in the case of the latter three. Nevertheless many of the usernames here feel familiar to me and I feel like I know the personality attached, even if it’s a mostly imagined one based on what they write. It’s a community here. We all know each other, even if it’s a very curated version of ourselves. Every now and again I’ll see an old thread where a name I haven’t seen in ages comes up, and I see they haven’t visited in years and I wonder what happened?

Occasionally I also morbidly wonder if anyone on Demonland would know or care if I did die. Given I have no personal connection to anyone on here the news may never filter through. How depressing!

I've always digitally had a soft spot for you Nasher. I said it on here years ago that Nasher was actually my nickname at a young age originating from my school Rugby team haha. Also really enjoyed your time on the podcast in its infant phase.

I'm very much the same though, I've been part of Demonland/Ology a very long time but I would have only met a handful of people in person. It's a different kind of connection but nonetheless a very meaningful one with everyone on here.

    BLINK OF AN EYE by The Oracle

    In the year 2022, we learned that the fine between ultimate success in sport and failure can be measured in the blink of an eye. The Melbourne Football Club began the year where it had left off in 2021 - as the powerhouse of the AFL men’s competition.  They steamed towards the halfway mark of the season taking all before them until their winning streak of ten in a row (17 overall since the latter part of the premiership season) came to a crushing end with consecutive losses at the hands of

    CHANGES 2022 Part 03 by The Oracle

    Part Three - Comparing apples with pomegranates by The Oracle One of the truly pointless exercises after each year’s draft is the game over which club “won” the period in question. The reality is that there is no winner or loser at the time and it’s only years further down the track when a full assessment of how the picks turn out can be made, that the winning hand is revealed. And the draft results cannot be considered in isolation; you need to look at where each club stood before the

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then
