Demonstone's Alliterative Alleged All-Star Allusion

Recommended Posts

In response to @george_on_the_outer mentioning my quizzes in today's training thread, here is an additional one.

You thought I'd run out of ideas to torment you with, didn't you?   

On the plus side, this is the penultimate teaser in my arsenal.

As usual, your challenge is to work out how I came up with this team. 

You will notice that it is a very strong side indeed, consisting solely of past and present Demons.

In response to pleas for leniency, I would rate this one as reasonably simple.

Answers in a PM if you please!

 

B:        James Frawley     Steven May     Alan Johnson

H/B:    Jake Lever     David Neitz     Jake Bowey

C:        Robert Flower     Greg Wells     Adem Yze

H/F:    Christian Petracca     David Schwarz     Angus Brayshaw

F:        Max Gawn     Allen Jakovich     Russell Robertson

R:        Jeff White     Nathan Jones     Kozzy Pickett

I/C:    Bayley Fritsch     Jack Viney     Todd Viney     Ben Brown

It's a talented team that would also love to eat out together, I'm sure.  

However, they'd avoid places like Entrecote. 

You'd be more likely to find them enjoying some delicious dim sum at a local yum cha.

That now makes a total of FIVE hints!  Not all have been flagged as such, however.

Well done to @tilly18 and @youami and @Jumping Jack Clennett for identifying the answer.

I'll leave it open for a while longer in case others are looking for a way to kill some time on this Public Holiday.

If you read the OP carefully, you'll find a couple of hints seeded therein.  Also note that I didn't claim that these players all have something in common, unlike most of my previous teasers.

Who else can put two and two together and solve the puzzle?

Now that's a cryptic comment, David!  He wouldn't want to be next to May, perhaps?

We can add @Allus Monk to the list of those who have worked it out.

Below is the final clue.  My cunning plan is for the solution to be revealed later this morning.

Not if you posted it on an old PM, Tim.  I delete those as a matter of course.

PS:  @Dee Zephyr has cracked the code, as I suspect @Timothy Reddan-A'Blew has also done.

I did, cos of that messaging problem I had.

I'll try again, and I, too, suspect. In the end it certainly wasn't rocket science (although, curiously, very fundamental to it!)

Time to put you all out of your misery.  

The team has been selected on the basis that the jumper numbers of the first two players on each line add up to the jumper number of the third player.  eg Frawley (8) plus May (1) equals Johnson (9).

I have made numerous allusions to this throughout the thread, with hints such as ADDITIONAL, PLUS, SUMMER, (dim) SUM, NUMBER,  PUT TWO AND TWO TOGETHER, ADD UP and CALCULATED.

The photo clue is BlackADDER.

Simmonds and Baker were both nicknamed "Snake".  A type of snake is the ADDER.

Well done to all those who were able to FIGURE it out.

I give in... The answer is driving me nuts..  Help me before I go insane.... I reckon the answer is that they all played for Melbourne but I maybe wrong...

    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.
