Due to scheduling conflicts we have a change of date for the Podcast.

We will now air LIVE on Monday 11th December @ 8:30pm.

Please post any questions on the following topics.

The 2023 season, the trade and draft period, the 2024 fixture and the AFLW Season.

We won't delve too specifically into the 2024 season as we will leave that to the 2024 Preview Podcast in the new year.

I think we are still top 4 material, hopefully not going to waste the double chance again.

if you were rating players , and then coaches, I would be interested to get your scorecards for them in 2023:

biggest contributors

biggest improvers

biggest let-down

most surprising match by a player (good or bad).

and how did you view the coaching panel in terms of performance?

Great to have you fellas back. It's been a long few months and the season didn't pan out the way we all hope. Looking back at another disastrous straight sets finals exit what do you think ultimately went wrong for us? Not so sure we can blame it on injuries like 2022. For me it was our poor delivery into our forward line and poor execution in front of the big sticks. If we don't fix these two things in 2024 we will not be making another preliminary final let alone a Grand Final or Flag.

Just wanted to thank you guys for another stellar season of podcasting. You took the show to another level and I really love that you open the discussion up to the audience via the questions and comments and I'm happy to have contributed to the conversation over the year. It's great to have you back even if it's just a little taste before the new season.

What did you guys make of our acquisitions over the trade period in terms of personnel. All seem to fill a certain role. Do you think any or all are a lock to play Round 1 or be a regular fixture in the side? Are we still a destination club?

thanks for all of your efforts this season boys . i only found this podcast midway through the year but it became a staple for me each and every week .

i'm a little bit concerned about our straight sets exits over the past two seasons and i'm a little bit worried if we are still genuine contenders for the flag and i just hope we don't drop away from the pack .

are we still in the premiership window and are we in any danger of dropping out of finals contention in 2024 ?

Welcome back guys, albeit briefly. Really appreciate the podcasts during the season. It's evident that a lot of hard work and preparation goes into it so thanks for that.

In regards to our draft picks; What did you make of our selections in particular passing on Daniel Curtin and what are the panels thoughts on drafting for needs vs drafting for best available? Andy I know you asked Jason Taylor this exact question in your excellent interview with him but I'd love to hear what you guys think.

I'll echo some others on here in thanking Andy, Binman and George for a great season for the podcast. Thanks for giving the listeners the chance to ask questions and contribute to the podcast. The interaction with the audience makes the podcast a really great companion piece to the Demonland website and community.

For my question - In the preseason at training and in the practice matches and then into the early season proper we saw a shift in the way the Dees moved the ball from defence and into attack. We saw the team take more risks in moving the ball through the middle as opposed to the around the wings/down the line strategy that worked well in the Premiership year but was perhaps becoming predictable. We also saw our kickout strategy change a little and rather than always kicking out to Max on the half back line we were first kicking short to a Hibberd or Salem and then going long or every now and again we'd telegraph a long kick into the guts.

As the year wore on though we stopped doing any of those new strategies and reverted back to the good old down the line and to a lead into the pocket.

Two questions; why did we revert back to that strategy and what changes do you think we need to do in regards to a strategy in 2024 in order to maintain success?

Good luck tonight boys, for some reason knowing this is on tonight brings back all the pain & angst I had from knowing that last goal was coming… but I remain optimistic about 2024 despite being crushed about that crazy 90s costing us a flag, likely will never get that one out of my head. 
 

What changes are you most excited about? The Mcadam is flying talk, the Kolt39 hype? Fullarton looking sharp, Briwn fitness?

 

for me, it’s the Billings i50 entry work we’re already seeing. Might call in with my youngest, she’s 10 but already a bigger demon-maniac than dad. She’s LOVE to chat to you guys.
 

Either way, can’t wait to hear each of your voices & it warms the cockles knowing you’re back for a night!

 

CMON DEEEMONS 🔥🔥🔥

I've missed the podcast!  Hope you've enjoyed the well earned break and will continue to do so over the holiday period!

We've seen our recruitment aim to bring in some more speed (eg with our draftees, Windsor, Kolt, Brown) and foot skills / goal sense (eg with our trades, Billings, McAdam).  Do you think this will be reflected in our game plan (to become faster moving / enable some riskier conversions in our F50)? Or is this to supplement our team and assist with executing our current game plan (from 2023 later half of the season, not the 2023 preseason or earlier iterations in 2021 / 2022) better?

Great work again guys - so much appreciated.  
How do you feel that our incoming players NB McAdam, Fullerton and maybe Billlings and Tholstrup will impact our forward transition and connection?   It has appeared to have been our biggest weakness 2022 & 2023.

Thank you Andy George and Bin for a great listen. Actually listened to the first half last week and finished it off last night. I agree 2023 was one that got away and that is why it burnt so much but as Goody said no good getting bitter and twisted, we must continue to get better than our opposition. I am now ready to move onto 2024.

    PREGAME: Rd 16 vs Brisbane

    The Demons head back on the road for their fifth interstate trip this season when they head up to Brisbane to take on the Lions under lights on Friday night at the Gabba. Who comes in and who goes out?

    VOTES: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    Captain Max Gawn has a considerable lead over the injured reigning champion Christian Petracca in the Demonland Player of the Year Award. Alex Neal-Bullen, Steven May, & Jack Viney make up the Top 5. Your votes for the loss against the Kangaroos. 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

    The Demons almost blew a six goal lead and ultimately hung on to win by three points over the North Melbourne Kangaroos at the MCG and have temporarily jumped back into the Top 8.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    It's Game Day and it very well could be the last roll of the dice for the Demon's finals aspirations in 2024. A loss to the bottom side would be another embarrassing moment in a cursed year for the Dees whilst a win could be the spark they need to reignite the fire in the belly.

    THE HUNTER by The Oracle

    Something struck me as I sat on the couch watching the tragedy of North Melbourne’s attempt to beat Collingwood unfold on Sunday afternoon at the MCG.    It was three quarter time, the scoreboard had the Pies on 12.7.79, a respectable 63.16% in terms of goal kicking ratio. Meanwhile, the Roos’ 18.2.110 was off the charts at 90.00% shooting accuracy. I was thinking at the same time of Melbourne’s final score only six days before, a woeful 6.15.51 or 28.57% against Collingwood’s 14.5.89

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    After two disappointing back to back losses the Demons have the bye in Round 14 and then face perennial cellar dweller North Melbourne at the MCG on Saturday night in Round 15. Who comes in and who goes out?
