Sorry Daz..   You aren't the only one to pull on boots.  It's not that hard to have eyes on ball and know where not only your knee is but opponents back. Knees are for elevation and NOT for forward projection.

You do know you can walk and chew gum eh ??

not only that bub, but there are two ways to elevate your knees.

the best way is to raise the knee but tuck it sideways. this way you protect yourself but can still gain elevation without spearing someone.

the other way is the thug's way by raising your knee directly out and in front of you so it becomes a weapon. this is mason cox's speciality. it is obviously dangerous and should be free kicked, if not reported.

now in darcy moore's case i'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt. i might be wrong but that's my gut feel

What are you on about? 

When you jump into a contest to mark or spoil the ball you're literally using your knees for both elevation and forward projection. 

I'll give you a prime example.

Watch it in slow mo.. you think if Jurrah had connected to the head this would be deemed as deliberate, absolutely not. You're allowed to jump and use your knee as extra elevation and forward projection as Jurrah has done here.

I realise I’m missing the point but Liam *sigh* 🥹

Care to proffer some offerings ??  Not thinking I'm quite as excited as your good self, but I'm curious.

Round 23 at 'People First Stadium' (WTF is that?) against the Suns - they will already be in 'yay we're going to be in finals' mode and some kind of idiotic pre-game hype-stink will damage the turf and wreck someone's ankle for our finals campaign.

Or maybe just a firework fixture will topple and go off, launching a barrage of rockets directly down the race into our rooms. The game will not be delayed for us, but later we'll be fined for allowing players to take the field with smoke inhalation symptoms. A new rule will be introduced.

But that is essentially saying we can't trust the AFL but can trust the media.

We have to take it on face value that the assessment and review were within guidelines. Whether those guidelines change as a result of this specific incident is another matter.

I wouldn’t trust either the AFL or the media on anything much actually

Probably not the correct conversation that should be held about Trac.

29 year old, before next season, whom may have fallen out of love with the game.

Can’t keep everyone just because they are a good bloke.

Interesting that Gawny has admitted to giving Trac a big spray over his effort, despite him being near dead in the 2nd quarter.

I’d imagine that didn’t sit well in the immediate aftermath.

The whole episode has been a mess

The media pile-on to the MFC goes ahead regardless of facts.  Some are expressing dismay that the Club has not made a strong statement.   I wonder if doing that would have the same effect as feeding trolls in a forum like this.  And yes, I think a lot of footy 'journos' are effectively trolls in search of click-bait, relevance and fortune.

Yes. The media can have a huge effect. Last year the narrative, fuelled by Whateley et al was that the ‘Grundy experiment’ was over and he should be moved on. That’s what happened. But it was clearly the wrong thing to do. MFC should have used this great ruckman way better.

It’s exhilarating pondering what topic will arise as our next angst du jour this season.

 

As a keen punter, I offer the following market:

$1.22 - Goody's future

$1.80 - hopeless list 

$2.00 - hopeless recruiting team

$2.20 - Kate Roffey 

$2.50 - kulture

$2.80 - midfield 

$3.00 - Maxy: does his brilliance actually hurt us.

$3.20 - loading: should we do more?

$3.50 - Pert

$4.00 - time to trade tracc, maxy and Oliver for picks and go full rebuild mode

After reading this “ informative”  cough  thread there’s also Trac wanting to be traded to the pies.

Hope so ;) 

Learn from this, my word, much can be taken from it. The character of Tracca was fully tested and he shone for his team in a most unappealing way. He still shines in our recent assessment of his duty towards the Club - beyond the call. What a lesson for upcoming players: this is what it means to be a Demon. Self, has no place...

I wouldn't be surprised if he went to Collingwood, the family has strong ties.

He's contracted until 2029, why would we trade him?

His only family 'ties' is that he barracked for them as a kid

Anyone suggesting he goes to collingwood should ban themselves, it's just trolling obscenity. 

Its been the latest "fake" rumour. I've got a mate who hears them all and even he, as a Pies supporter, laughed at this one.

The whole KB “incident” was, as was the moon landing,  staged. Moore had a pad on his knee. Tracc could have played on and could have played tonight. The scan was a scam.  Anyone who calls me a conspiracy theorist is one themselves. 
He just wants play with Moore and 🐀💩4

    GAMEDAY: Rd 19 vs Fremantle

    It's Game Day and the Demons have a golden opportunity to stamp their 2024 finals credentials as well as make amends for their disastrous first meeting against the Dockers earlier in the season when they take on Fremantle at Optus Stadium.

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    EARLY BIRDS by KC from Casey

    Wet, slippery conditions and threatening rainfalls greeted the VFL Bombers at the end of their long journey southeast of the big city on Sunday. The threatening weather combined with the fact that neither side had realistic prospects of advancing to action in September, meant that spectators gathered at a cold Casey Fields weren’t expecting a classic exhibition of football. Nor did they get one. Instead they were presented with a dour struggle that never reached great heights. It was a

    HEAVENS ABOVE by Molly Melbourne

    Who said the football gods and scoreboard attendants at the MCG don’t have a sense of humour? The gods spent a whole week teasing Demon and Bomber fans alike about Saturday night’s game. About how the entire match would be dominated by the hulking, brooding figures of 205cm Sam Draper and his 2IC Peter Wright lapping it up in the absence of Melbourne skipper and the club's No.1, No 2, No 3 and No 4 ruckman Max Gawn in the wake of that ankle injury. They painted pictures of Simon Goodwin ne

I will post the show here once I receive Binman's stats files. You can also find it wherever you get your podcasts from. We will return in our regular format once I return after the Dockers match.
