Angus Brayshaw Forced into Retirement


Demonland

Recommended Posts

The MFC curse leaves Tutenkahmen for dust. Has any club ever had such a shocking run of bad luck and disasters in 5 months.

The bad news just keeps on coming.

It never stops.

Maybe our plane will crash on the way to wet  Sidee.

Absolutely shattered.

With this, we have lost one of those spirit of the club sort of players. You always know what you're getting with Gus, wherever he was asked to play. Uncompromised work ethic, super consistent and reliable. And a gentleman to boot. It's so sad his last game was the one that ultimately brought this about, but he leaves an impressive legacy, the 3Q in the GF, and is a premiership hero. 

Not going to lie, the offseason drama, now this - we have a strong list and certainly some depth - and this creates an opportunity for somebody to step up - but gee with everything, the boys are either majorly distracted (which I worry about), or they use everything ton inspire/drive them to success and righting the wrongs of the last 2 years and making use of this list before it's gone.

We'll soon see which of the two it is...

I'm devastated by this news. Gus is fantastic as a player, a clubman and a person. He is an immense loss to the game. 😪

A Melbourne Football Club immortal. Premiership player and lead-wresting 3rd-qtr clutch goal kicker. 

I wish him every success and good health in life from here.

Devasted. Just Devasted.

 

BUT.

 

This is why we recruited Billings. And it gives us cap relief.

We should throw everything at Tim English.

I know this is frivolous, but does this also mean the end of Gus and Gawny? 
 

Today’s news is just a [censored] sandwich. He’s a heart & soul player.

Performative.

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

The AFL needs to get up to date with all major world sports and implement an order off rule for serious violations. The pseudo legalistic AFL tribunal is an anachronism and time and time again we have seen high profile players from influential clubs get away with murder facilitated by legalistic mumbo jumbo. The system is set up to be scammed. This can be done by umpire consultation on field and off field with supplemented video evidence. The cynic in me believes the AFL only prefer the current system because it generates media attention to keep the game on the sports front pages just about every week.

Best call for his health and that is the most important thing.

People blaming Maynard, Unfortunately this was the last hit, but this has been a concern for a long time.  There were doubts a few years back he would play again, to get back, win a premiership was fantastic for him and the club.  He has been 1 more concussion off this outcome for a while, the hit was bad no question but you can't put this retirement solely on that hit.

 

I'm sure Gus will be in the media, such a well spoken young man, we hope making this call now will limit any on going effects

What a brilliant heart and soul player Gus has been for us. Putting aside the impact this will have on the team on field, off field his presence will be irreplaceable. 

I don't think I will ever get over the Maynard incident. It still burns in my stomach, and my interest in football has not been the same since. I hope there is a special place waiting in hell for him. 

Washing Gus all the very best. He has a bright and long future ahead and he deserves to live out his life with a healthy body and mind. 

Thank you for always putting our club first. It's time you put your health first now.

We remain MFC, not a club who resorts to borderline tactics to win games.

shocking news that we lost a player with great ability, but great news for Angus future health. Hopefully now he can fully recover and go on to another chapter in life. I for one would have hated to see he playing well but always being one knock away from serious health concerns.

well done Angus, premiership player, serious fan favourite, players player and a player who lived up to his early draft pick placing.

Gus, thankyou for the dedication and efforts and well deserved rewards. You deserved far more than this and I can't imagine how gut wrenching that decision must have been.

You leave the field with aplomb. Wish you all the very best for wherever your path takes you. 

But....bugger bugger bugger

    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

    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
