There are no milestones for our Round One match vs Dogs. This means we have the entire front of the banner just for Gus.

We welcome any and all suggestions for banner content.

Note: one of the AFL’s rules is no insulting opposition players/clubs on banners, regardless of whether or not a player’s career has been cruelly cut short due to the deliberate action of a filthy thug… of course, that’s just an example.

We’ve had the suggestion of a minute’s applause (standing ovation) at the 10-minute mark of the first quarter.
We’ve also had the suggestion of as many as possible cheer squad members behind the goals wearing a Gussy-style helmet.

These are just two examples of ideas that are welcome and that I’ll put to our esteemed DA leaders, along with banner content suggestions.

Let’s show Gussy how much we love and respect him!

A standing ovation at the 10 minute mark sounds good WCW.
Maybe we can all light a cigar at the same time like Gus did in the middle of Optus. They won’t be able to kick all of us out for smoking.

I hope that at least one of the players (Gawn or Trac my picks) will do a golf swing celebration after a goal in tribute to Gus.

As for Dees fans I think the 10min mark 1min applause is a good idea.

Just a red and blue helmet, with black where the face would be, and two eyes peering out of the darkness.

“Words cannot describe our gratitude to Gus.

We’re coming for you Collingwood, like Jake the [censored] Muss”

Whilst I love the sentiment, I just can’t see the Club nor the AFL letting that one through. 😅

While I believe any of the suggested examples would/could be good suggest the DA work in with the Vlub about its intentions on that day to honour him.  I would think he would be offered a motorcade or walk around the ground at half time. 

At sometime Gus highlights  on the scoreboard should be shown if he is honoured with the half time respects. 

Certainly the 10 minute clap is a popular one and banner tributes both sides perhaps if possible. 

Club  should also promote It as a Gus Day and some item be chosen as a tribute or T shirt for fans all ages. 

no pressure but it’s only 3/4 weeks away!

Great idea WCW, like other posters have commented, is it possible to include on a banner?

Could it be... is this the time... to bring back the bugle?

Maybe a cavalry charge call at the moment in the third quarter when he took the gully catch in the grand final ;)

That bugle is to be never seen again

We are certainly working with the Club to make this a Gus Day.

The T-shirt idea has been put forth and (time permitting) seems like it could be a thing 🤞🏼 

Unfortunately, unless the Club can work something out with our partners, there’ll be an ad on the other side of the banner. Regardless, and weather permitting, we hope do a ‘show’ - raising the banner, lowering it, turning it, then raising it again so as everyone gets to see it.

Thanks for the ideas, 58er

    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

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    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
