Welcome to Demonland: Shane McAdam

Recommended Posts

Trust the club, but personally want Melksham to come back from his ACL, couldn't see McAdam being a 3year proposition, and he would have to buy into the defensive aspect of the role. Like others if he didn't get on with Burgess I'm wondering?

Do we really need more competition for half forwards, or more 28 year olds on the list? I can't see how this possibly improves the mix of our list.

Yep better than Charlie Spargo!

Agree. Dangerous as a goalkicking small-medium forward.  Good mark.  Loves a goal.  It’s a Yes if the right terms and trade deal works.  

AND clearly has been in meetings with us 

THUNDERBIRDS ARE GO!😇🤩😁

Other players wanting to come to the Dees is something I’ll never get tired of. For about 5 million years nobody looking for success would even look at us.

 Now look at us!!

We’re a DEESTINATION club! 

(I’ll show myself out)

I always find the perspective of fans from the player the club is from the most interesting, so for anyone wanting a quick read...

Love this…! Will make our forward line so much more dangerous and unpredictable. He has everything. Footy smarts. He can fly, crumb, pressure and tackle. And capable of 50+ goal season… 

Our current crop of small forwards haven’t been the greatest of pressure and tackling. McAdam definitely an improvement in this area and will bring the heat at training…! 

He does remind me of a Jeff Farmer and Peter Vardy combination.

Love to hear some thoughts on what he will bring us. Who's spot does he take? 

Melksham’s. Competes so well in air, recovers at ground level, exactly what we need in 3rd fwd option — massive get for club!

Reading that Big Footy thread, they’re saying that Rucci clarified that it’s a Melbourne based club, as opposed to the MFC.

Nope, it’s MFC 💯

    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

    POSTGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    After a very wasteful first half of footy the Demons ended up cruising to a clinical victory over the Saints by 38 points at the MCG and ultimately reclaimed a coveted spot in the Top 4.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.

    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
