Premiership Window


Demonland
 Share


Recommended Posts


Considering the reigning premiers went into the grand final with an average age just shy of 29, and almost all of their best dozen on the day were older than that, I'm going to suggest that premiership windows are a little bit over-hyped.

Gawn to get his fourth premiership in his 300th game. You heard it here first.

It’s about time sports journos added some more realtor lingo to the football landscape.

Surely we are in more of a Bay window versus Geelong, who are clearly in a porthole by comparison.

As for Gold Coast, that’s not a window that’s an egress - the kind of window you only have in the hope you can escape from it during a home invasion.

Clickbait and Iv'e fallen for it.

Says Who about premiership windows.?  You can tell its racing season and footy news is in short supply.

Saying Premiership window and Gold Coast Suns in the same sentence is an oxymoron for example, as is quite a few others.

To be fair, we were excrement in 2013 and won a Premiership in 2021. Would anyone have said at any time before 2017 that we would win a premiership that soon?

Perhaps you could save me from having to read the article...but does it explain why the Bulldogs window is one year longer than ours?

Because  of their next superstars youth.

Naughton Bailey Smith Jamarra UH Sam Darcy Cody Weightman and their first ruck star! 

LDVC   You ought to read more widely.

Too much hit and miss. Requires all of them to fire at the same time.

Do you reckon giving away Hunter and Schache for next to nothing might impact on their window?

I do.

I've read quite a bit of Shakespeare, Conrad and Dickens over the years. Hasn't helped me understand footy much.

Good reply LVDC That  could well be your favoured topic on Hard Quiz  though!!

Give them a go Tiers Remenber when Trac was starting off ? Till 2020 there were many D/Lers who wanted to clear him. They have gone to ground like turtles never to be seen again! 

Key positions are there low point esp. in defence but they have lost too  many 2016 Flag  players and each season some others ie Schache  and Hunter are leaving for cultural reasons. Coaching an issue I wonder?? 

It's different from Weid Hunty and Toby who are seeking greater games and growth but not culture IMO.

Are you able to self-report yourself on Demonland?

Premiership depend on the cattle, luck and injuries.

If you have the players but are injured most of the year then you are yesterdays favourite.

Luck in the Grand Final and you kick points rather than goals but have more scoring shots al la Geelong 2008 then you lose.

Luck during the season where in clutch games you kick winning goals rather than losing point at the death getting you not enough wins to make the finals, look Collingwood 2022 if they lost all the close games 2 goals or less then they would have won 10 less games.

Cattle teams like North Melbourne, West Coast start the season knowing the team need to be at their best even to be competitive so their window is always in the future and depends on getting their picks right to become competitive in the future like the demons in 2008-2017 high draft picks either were duds or ordinary at the AFL level.

Players who look good at junior level maybe bigger and stronger then their opponents but fall by the wayside because of poor attitude or desire.

    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
