Yeah well, coz I greatly respect and love Clarry Choo Choo and the sauce, of info in hindsight better to keep my mouth shut, for a change! But nothing sinister I can say!🤐

Fair enough, mate. Hopefully it's on the positive side of the ledger.

Is Tholstrup training or injured? Haven’t seen / heard much about him? 

Back in W.A For some reason!

You see I bl@@dy told youse all. Don't recruit any Western Stralians. Even from the middle of nowhere. Go home factor has struck already. Makes Jackson look like a career Demon. 😎

Thanks for the report @picket fence.. certainly appreciated for the likes of myself who live in a different state and can't attend.

I'm interested around your comment with Josh Schache? Does he playing the roaming CHF role using his high endurance levels or is he poaitioned as as the stay at home forward? Then obviously playing as the 2nd ruck role as well which we'll need for Max. 

Also, how was Ollie Sestan during that session?

Thanks Dazz it appears that it is a combo of both BUT stay at home he is covering a lot of territory running up the ground even as far as almost CHB before sprinting back to forward line. If this is the plan, it might, just might Click!

Solid and relaible as always, also Bill Laurie showed a bit today as did Jake Bowey. Sheesh competition for places will be at an all time high with the quality we are assembling!

Thanks for the report PF, but you must have missed the Demonland community memo - apparently we have zero depth and 2024 is already a write-off.

"Christian Salem eyeing a midfield role (as doubt remains on [redacted]" 

Wot da

 

January footy media!

 

They made a story up about Salem (midfield push) as an excuse to a) bring Clayton into the story and b) show that salem has an injury (because they couldn’t  just say ‘he has an injury concern’ because the club would’ve said they have zero concern).

Many thanks again, Mr Fence.  🐍

From the glowing report I can see the only reason to place bets for 2024 would be as to who will be runners up in our GF slaughter. 🙄

I like the sounds of a team with Yze, Brown, Viney, White, Woey in it. Don’t suppose Gaz, Ox or Neita  had male footy progeny at all?

Given that these guys are all older (with the exception on Viney) I assume their kids would all be past draft age.

Lyon has 3 adult sons that couldn't or wouldn't make the grade.

Neita has 2 daughters probably both aged under 10.

Ox has a teenage son (and daughter I think). Does anybody know if he's jumping up the ranks or even plays footy?

Ox young boy Cooper, has gone down the basketball path and is not pursuing footy.

    PREGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    The Demons return to the MCG to take on the Saints in Round 11 on the back of two straight losses in a row. With Jake Lever out with concussion who comes in and who goes out?

    VOTES: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Last week Captain Max Gawn consolidated his lead over reigning champion Christian Petracca in the Demonland Player of the Year Award. Steven May, Alex Neal-Bullen & Jake Lever make up the Top 5. Your votes for the loss against the Blues. 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

    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

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
