In all honesty, I stumbled onto the answer. It was one of Demonstone’s clues alone that did the trick. I never would’ve got it just by the players’ names. Even now I can’t see why certain names are there.

Less confused now? Probs more confused, amirite?

It will all make sense when the solution is revealed in full.

1. And Tilly and Mazer didn't?!

2. As you can see, yes.

Without giving too much away, DS: I’m not entirely knowledgeable about the thing that links these players. One of your clues alone is what prompted me to have not so much a stab in the dark; rather, a stab in the half-light.

edit: @Timothy Reddan-A'Blew, there’s no clue in the above. But gimme a little time, and with Demonstone’s permission, I’ll come up with one.

@Allus Monk has identified the key, but is still looking for the correct lock.

I'll be away from Demonland until lunchtime and shall reveal the answer then (probably).

I would rather that others not provide their own clues, but I can't stop them doing that.

Don't forget that I have no more of these teasers up my sleeve, so this may be the last time you can participate.

After submitting 2 wrong answers, I'm gun shy from having another crack at this one.

But would Steve Waugh, Mark Waugh and Evelyn Waugh be a suitable line for this quiz?

Demonstone says he’d prefer we don’t give clues. But I’m sure it’s ok for me to say no, those names wouldn’t be suitable.

PS: not gonna lie, hella proud that I solved one of DS’s quizzes before you, Mo. 😘

No room for Auberon Waugh? (That's not in any way a clue. At least, it's not intended to be one. I have no idea of the connection.)

Please don’t, it’s still 4 weeks until rd 1.

I was going that 'geopolitical' path (as represented by the twins), too - through some PM-ing, I now at least feel like I'm dealing with a few less 'locks', but I can't find my keys anywhere!

Meanwhile, paradoxically, as readers may have been hearing in my posts, it has been a case of 'This means Waugh!'

Nooooooooo!!!!

I need more time. I might have to screenshot the team and the clues then not revisit the thread until I too have cracked it.

OK, fair enough, BA; that's one of the (lesser!) strategic options I was foolishly considering as an alternative to craven surrender. @Demonstone, please note: BA and I would like more time...

 

...and another clue?

I can confirm that the team has nothing to do with matters Waugh.

@reynolds46 has supplied the correct answer, but no other responses to date.

By popular demand, I'll leave this open.

Another clue, you say?  In addition to the one I slipped in this morning?

OK.  Demonstone.

Hey DS, idk if you’ve read the entire thread but I took the liberty of slipping in a little clue as well.

 I kinda feel sorry for the likes of Tim and Bombay Aircon. I know only too well how frustrating it is when you can’t crack it while others around you can.

I hope that’s ok.

Maybe I should’ve PM-ed this.

@Timothy Reddan-A'Blew can relax now, having finally become one of the Famous Five teaser-crackers.

Sorry, @Bombay Airconditioning. I was hardly more confident of this answer than the handful I'd already tried!

    TRAINING: Tuesday 28th May 2024

    Veteran Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin returned to the training track to bring you the following observations from Gosch's Paddock this morning. Beautiful morning for training. The dew has dried, out from AAMI, quiet chatting. Maysie does his heart symbol. 7 in rehab, Turner, Hore, Sestan, BBB, Petty, Spargo and Schache. All in runners. Melky weighted and change of angles work. Salem has his individual program. White cap (no contact), Howes, Woewodin and Sparrow

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    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
