  • The catastrophisation, neurotic codependency and trauma triggering reactions by the rest of us

Right now I’m at Acceptance and Hope, having just sped through Anger, Bargaining and Depression while on the plane (which is the norm win or lose, amirite).

I’ll begin processing the grief once I’m home because that’s when I’ll know exactly how much grief I’m looking at. I’m not sure but I think a banana Big M has leaked in my suitcase. Good times.

Why would you put a Big M or any liquid for that matter in your suitcase?

More importantly, how did your scans go? (If you’re wanting to share of course)

The injured ppl at the clinic max goes to wont be happy when they get pushed back in the queue

Max can sign autographs on their moon boots or crutches and take selfies comparing dickie knees for compensation. A medical visit to remember.

MRI results are instant. You get the films straight after the scan. It’s about having someone to interpret them. Which I assume we can find a doctor or two keen to look at them today. 

Jaded if they can't find a real doctor immediately then surely the club could post the images here for a Demonland non-medical opinion.

It was mentioned, we are not inferring. 

Let's stop this speculative discussion in respect for Max. Our thoughts are with him, whatever the the short and longer term outcomes may be - he will feel our concern anyway and the many thousands of good wishes that cannot be fully expressed. Overt speculation does not help, not one iota. So, shaddup and get on the bandwagon to support and further encourage those of His team that he is leaving behind for a while.

I just found out that a very old Mate has Cancer.

Max’s knee will be repaired.
The rest of our list and coaches all have to look each other in the eye and say “How hard are you prepared to work”

Smash adversity and Keep Fighting…

and Yes, He is a Demon Supporter…

As I understand it, if it’s an ACL you hear or feel a pop. Perhaps this is a positive sign but even that’s not conclusive.

Wish that was always the case but of the 3 ACL ruptures I had playing footy I didn’t hear a thing for 2 of them and only had mild discomfort and a feeling that something wasn’t right.  First one was also a similar action to Max with a player crashing in.

I’m so nervous for Max!!  Fingers crossed.

    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

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had
