Just to be clear. I have never asked for that nor do I necessarily want that. I have a full time job. That being said I have alot of ideas and advice that I would happily give. I would love to have the access that the club has to their own talent. I'm not saying I could do a better job but I have a lot of ideas about what the club could do better with their own resources. When I say I would do things for free it is more to just emphasize my love for the club and wanting them to be the best in all aspects. I already support them financially in the form of many premium memberships as well as the 2 player sponsorships not to mention merchandise etc. I'm also happy to give my time and knowledge to help improve certain aspects that I believe the club is lacking in.

It’s okay to be modest Andy but you would absolutely do better and be far better than what gets provided from the current social media team 😂

Seems like BBB might play tonight

Why do you say that? He wasn't named in the 1s on the extended bench or emergencies and although we don't know if he was named at Casey it is unlikely as he didn't train with the Casey group of Demon players at training yesterday.

We don't know what areas the club has cut resources and funding from but it seems that social media and comms likely has taken a hit. Losing Ben Gibson was huge and I don't believe they have adequately replaced him. In this day and age club comms and social media is huge in order to engage the whole supporter base. I think they are trying to engage the youth market and I don't know how successful they are with that as that content is not my cup of tea. Perhaps the kids love that stuff and it is important to engage that area of the market but in terms of real information about the footy side of things other clubs are far superior in that regard.

This is edited above - wrong Brown, reasonable whoopsie. 
BBB away for a while yet it seems.

Nearly 2 decades running Demonland and over 30k posts is a fair CV Andy. If they don't know where your head and heart is by now, they are negligent.  Where do I sign the petition to get you in as at least a consultant. 😉

Goals to Sestan and AMW.  Tholstrup, AMW and Clarrie our best.  I'll see if I can get a score.

All aforementioned doing their chances no harm.

Score: 12.5 to 4.7 Casey winning

 

Saves me wanting the Blues to kick a goal so I can get a score update.

So Casey has kicked 5.1 to 0.3 in the 3rd so far.

As a young(er) demon in his mid 20s, I can say that the content the club puts up on Tik Tok and other socials doesn’t for it for me at all

GWS is easily the best in that space - entertaining content that lets their fans laugh with their favourite players while also providing insight into the day to day of their club life

They also post great banter with other clubs - although I recognise with our older supporter base that isn’t going to be everyone’s cup of tea

Our content just seems like we’re always trying to manufacture an entertaining clip, rather than just capturing our players in their element 

GWS - among other clubs - also does a far better job with their more serious content. Their training, match sim and interview content goes far beyond ours in terms of length and insight 

If I was a Giants fan I’d feel so connected to the individual players at my club, as well as really in tune with the culture and day to day operations 

It’s clear we’ve got a long way to go unfortunately

The beauty of the understatement;

Must have flown these guys in from Canberra AM.

My 21 year old son says exactly the same thing about GWS.  Their socials have a huge following.  Melbourne needs to do so much better.

My read is that the club's TikTok stuff is aimed at a much younger audience than people in their 20s.

And that's my point. The socials need to cater to the whole spectrum and not just try, whether successful or not, to capture the Gen Alpha market.

Agree re: GWS.

But it has to be more than just that. People want genuine information about the footy side of stuff and not just what the players do in the off time (which I agree has place too). There is a way to provide the footy stuff without giving away tactics.

    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

    POSTGAME: Rd 09 vs Carlton

    The Demons were blown out of the water in the first quarter and clawed their way back into the contest but it was a case of too little too late as they lost another close one to Carlton losing by 1 point at the MCG.
