Angus Brayshaw Forced into Retirement


Demonland

Recommended Posts

My all-time favourite player taken out of the game by condoned thuggery.

The sadness and anger is beyond words.

Brayshaw will be all right because he is a champion human being as well as footballer, but he deserved so much more luck than he had.

Heart break for Gus.

His teammates too.

Super brave decision - but obviously the right thing for him though.

CTE is a nightmare. Hard not think it will ultimately change the sport.

Fir one thing, I'd go with goody's take, and flat out ban the bump.

People will say it would change footy too much - but would it really?

I mean how often does a bump actually achieve something other than rattling someone's cage?

Tackling is almost always the better option than a bump in terms of say winning the ball back and/or preventing an opponent disposing of the ball.

Thanks Gus for all you've given the club and fans.

I hope the karma bus runs that thug Maynard over this year. I’m still beyond angry about what happened last season. I will never, ever forget what he did.😡😡

Best call for his long term health. But really sucks from a team perspective. In our top 5-6 must important and best players. 

Dark day for the the Dee's and the AFL in general. That Magyars Maynard hit had ended his career and the AFL ticked it off as ok.

In fairness Laura Kane stepped in and initially had Maynard suspended.

Too upset to comment properly at the moment. Had to remove myself from the office at work as was tearing up.

My favorite player just retired too soon and its heartbreaking.

Take care Angus, we all care about you so much and feeling for you at the moment.

Lets see if Collingwoods media team kicks another own goal and lets Maynard attempt to wish Brayshaw all the best. After the netball repurposing, it's certainly something that they are stupid enough to do.

..... Seriously though, if he comes out to say anything publicly, I'll do my nut.

I'll go bananas on KB game make no mistake 😡😡😡

Genuinely shocked.

His health is the most important thing. I'm sure being married to a Frawley helped him with this decision. Best of luck in retirement Gus.

Next time we play the pies i want to see Maynard get the treatment from our boys. special dispensation. What a scumbag that guy is.

Performative.

The AFL put on a woeful case and then didn't appeal a ridiculously flawed decision.

    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

    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
