  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    Demonland has made the difficult decision to not permit this platform to be used to discuss & debate the off-field issues relating to the Melbourne Football Club including matters currently being litigated between the Club & former Board members, board elections, the culture at the club & the personal issues & allegations against some of our players & officials ...

    We do not take these issues & this decision lightly & of course we believe that these serious matters affecting the club we love & are so passionate about are worthy of discussion & debate & I wish we could provide a place where these matters can be discussed in a civil & respectful manner.

    However these discussions unfortunately invariably devolve into areas that may be defamatory, libelous, spread unsubstantiated rumours & can effect the mental health of those involved. Even discussion & debate of known facts or media reports can lead to finger pointing, blame & personal attacks.

    The repercussion is that these discussions can open this website, it’s owners & it’s users to legal action & may result in this website being forced to shutdown.

    Our moderating team are all volunteers & cannot moderate the forum 24/7 & as a consequence problematic content that contravenes our rules & standards may go unnoticed for some time before it can be removed.

    We reserve the right to delete posts that offend against our above policy & indeed, to ban posters who are repeat offenders or who breach our code of conduct.

    WE HAVE BUILT A FANTASTIC ONLINE COMMUNITY AT DEMONLAND OVER THE PAST 23 YEARS & WE WOULD LIKE TO CONTINUE TO BE ABLE TO DISCUSS THE CLUB WE LOVE & ARE SO PASSIONATE ABOUT.

    Thank you for your continued support & understanding. Go Dees.


Demonstone's Dastardly December Demonland Diabolical

Unless inspiration strikes, this is the last of my brainteasers for now as the arsenal is empty.

Anybody else interested in having a go?

Below is a team of currently listed AFL footballers, roughly in position.  

It's not a particularly strong side, but all the players have something in common.

I would rate this one as fairly straightforward but, then again, I already know the solution.

There are no prizes today.  Don't be greedy.  It's almost Christmas.

Answers in a PM only, thanks!

Hmmm ... three hours, almost 100 views and not a single response as yet.

Rest assured the answer is not as complicated as it initially appears.

As an added incentive, I shall now award appropriate seasonal prizes for the first three wise men/women/either/other who manage to crack the puzzle.

Before you hit the sack, DS… you know I love you, right? (And by love I mean tolerate), so it pains me to have to point out an error of yours, but ima go ahead and do it regardless. In your thread title you use the word ‘diabolical’ as a noun. Of course, ‘diabolical’ is an adjective.

To every other Demonlander: you’re welcome.

😁

Nothing to do with siblings, alas.  (Please PM me if you think you know the answer rather than posting here)

I've had suggestions that they were all Rising Star nominees and that they share a surname with singers, but those answers are also incorrect.

Another hint:

All clubs are represented in the team except Adelaide and Essendon.  There is a very good reason for this.

Congratulations to @Timothy Reddan-A'Blew who has nailed second place and earns himself second prize from the three wise men.  

I think the item has been misspelled all these years and was really a future nod to the creator of this bloke.

Puzzlers, please read whole post. This is not a photo of me... Well...

 

Thanks, 'Stone. Chuffed. And looking forward to your biblical rewrite for third!

In most of my teasers, the answer is based on members of my team sharing a surname with another group - eg. singers, cricketers, actors, jockeys etc.  This puzzle is not like that and does have a football connection.

No current coach qualifies for inclusion, although Luke Beveridge is almost eligible.

Third prize is still up for grabs.  Who will earn the gift from the Maggi?*

*  I believe that is the correct spelling.  Sauce?  Glad you asked.

For those still waiting for the answer, you will both be relieved to know that the surname of all the players in this team starts with the same initial as the club they play for. 

Hardwick/Hawthorn, May/Melbourne, Guthrie/Geelong and so on.

Wasn't really that difficult was it?  :cool:

Applause for @Roger Mellie who has solved the mystery and takes home third prize.

I must confess I'm not exactly sure what the last of the three wise men's gift actually is, but I think this is right.

    SCRUTINY & RESILIENCE by Whispering Jack

    If the week when preseason training melds into scratch matches with other clubs, is the first marker for the beginning of a new season, then this has certainly been a torrid opener for the Melbourne Football Club in its campaign to remain a leading AFL premiership contender in 2024. The Demons were already under enormous scrutiny from the media and football’s fan base (including their own) after consecutive straight-sets finals exits, with Clayton Oliver’s well documented woes, the Joel Smi
