Demonstone's Zany Zesty Zealous Zinger

Recommended Posts

By my count, I've posted 25 of these brainteasers over the past couple of years.

This is the last of them and, fittingly, number 26 has the letter 'z' starring in the title.

Today's team is of varying quality with some very good footballers, some not so great players and others nobody's ever heard of.

What do they have in common?

Answers in a PM of course!

 

B:          Tony Free     Bradley Sparks     Albert Proud

H/B:     Jayden Short     Paul Dear     Conor Stone

C:         Michael Long     Simon Black     Jason Wild

H/F:     Jason Love     Jonathon Brown     Kieren Jack

F:         Kerry Good     Max King     James Cook

R:         Peter Street     Nathan Jones     Scott West

I/C:      Herbert Friend     Brad Shine     Jordan Sweet     Leo Little

It doesn't actually, a Jones is a compulsive desire to fix something.

Come to D'Land for an education; thanks, MD! 🙂

Though I do note from Samuel Johnson Google that it is 'informal', 'US', and arising from drug culture. So I'm not surprised it has escaped my attention! 😉

It's lucky for you that this is not the correct answer, Mr. Rackham.  Responses in a PM please!

Great God above.

I don't know how this appeared as a post and not a DM, which was what I was attempting. I'm playing Demonland the way the Aussies play spin. Just as well my answer was wrong.

My apologies for (nearly) wrecking the quiz.

As an aside (indeed, as an A(ustralian)side), Leo Little played on the winning side in this game:

https://www.google.com/search?q=remastered+1916+australian+football+match&oq=remastered+1916+australian+football+match&aqs=chrome..69i57j33i160.28351j1j4&client=ms-android-samsung-ss&sourceid=chrome-mobile&ie=UTF-8#fpstate=ive&vld=cid:15f6b4ec,vid:B88dBgC01YA

He's the second player from the right in the back row in the team shots of the blue, Australia-map team, and the white-shorts No.5 in the match footage.

Later wounded, he did make it back, joining the Fuchsias in 1919 after playing with University when he joined up.

What a time. Lest we forget.

...and this albeit fascinating and sobering rabbit hole got me no nearer to the answer @Demonstone!

Kudos to @WalkingCivilWar for nutting out the correct answer.

You must be SO tempted to drop some clever hints, @WalkingCivilWar🤓

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k
