  1. Hi all, i discovered Demonland over the weekend and immediately signed up. I live in South West France, near the beautiful Dordogne River. I've been a Melbourne supporter for more than 60 years. I attended the '64 Grand Final and still vividly remember the Gabelich and Crompton goals. I have been an overseas member for four years and watch every game on watchafl.

  2. I don't care about AFLX, but doing it as State of Origin could have been quite good and with only seven players per side even the smaller states like New South Wales and Queensland could have been competitive.

  4. Exactly. 2/3 of Demonland have this whacko on ignore and only see his posts when quoted. Thanks Dazzle ?

  6. Note to Gil & fellow nuffies: if I didn't have any interest in watching my own team play (and win) AFLX last year, why would I have any more interest in watching this ugly, red-headed bastard stepson of a concept? Wow, even more publicity for the already dangerously over-exposed Dangerfield and Betts! Broadly speaking I understand the idea behind having a version of the game that requires less space, less players and less physicality, but the execution of the idea has been so bad it has no chance of ever gaining acceptance. And only the AFL (and perhaps Cricket Australia) would cannibalise their own product by running it at the same time as they are trying to get publicity and sponsors for AFLW.

  8. No one else has mentioned but I thought I would... Lever, Brayshaw and Stretch were really good with the kids today. Signing autographs, taking photos and the like and just being polite, while the kids were nagging them through training. The club has come along way since I was a Redleg which was good to see.

  11. Not even watching Daicos could get me to attend any Collingwood games unless we were playing them. My detest of Collingwood was so strong from the 1960s through to approximately 15 January 2019, that I just couldn't watch them. However, your comment about Daicos is understood. It's hard to believe that the bouncing "round the corner" kicks at goal we now see performed regularly just didn't exist until Daicos showed how it could be done.

  13. This might of been brought up in another thread, Was thinking the other day, one way teams have been trying to stop max is smash into him early. You see them run into Max hard for the first 1-2 center ball ups of the match (and after half time). Do you think it is worth sending big Pruess into the center for the first bounce of the quarter and then let him drift forward and max to follow the ball? or let him take the first 5 min and let Maxy run out the quarter? Max will always be the number 1 but protecting him against a Nankervis who just wants to put some "hurt" onto Max might be a big upside of the man monster Pruess in the side. sorry if this has been covered, just bored at work.

  16. Flower is the greatest goal-kicking wingman of all time. Flower is the most brilliant Melbourne player I've ever seen. I have a feeling Oliver will be the most effective Melbourne player I'll see.

  18. WOW! Weeds is a big boy now. He's not a fast guy or a manic endurance athlete so he needs to rely on his excellent pack marking and strength in 1-on-1 contests. We saw a glimpse of that in September, with an extra few KGs and newfound confidence, and no Hogan, look out! Makes a mockery of those who wrote him off early. ME INCLUDED!

  19. R Flower was consistently the best footballer i saw for 14 years. Just sublime. That said Oliver is a full tilt jet who could go down as one of our club greats

  20. Fork the cherry pickers, and their arrogant forken supporters. I also hope Scullys forked and O'meara struggles for the rest of his career. I was at the 87' prelim, the '88 GF and work with several whorethorne supporting flogs. Yeah I've got issues.

  25. To answer the question re rules, the players have instruction of every facet, fitness, diet, health etc etc Any extra has been cleared with the club They all have individually tailored programs Tommy Mac has been 'instructed' whenever he can to walk barefoot, as it strengthens the foot and will help his toe

  29. It would be ironic if pursuing with this concept may mean that AFLX turns either Stephen Hocking or Gil McLachlan (or both) into EX-AFL

  30. According to this article none of our players are listed in the 20 players best suited to AFLX, which is good in a way, although Oliver should be a tad offended, he could bring snow to Darwin but he’s not AFLX material. http://m.afl.com.au/news/2019-01-13/uncanny-xmen-the-20-top-players-suited-to-aflx

  33. Hawk supporters need to reacquire the ability to lose gracefully. Until they do (and it’s a skill that will require decades of practice), they will get little sympathy from me, when the footy Gods do them ill.

  34. Austin, Texas. last year saw a guy wearing a demons cap crossing the main street before our finals clinching game vs west coast. said "go dees" and took it as a good omen. for once i was right. More friday night games is a struggle, 4am morning wakeups to watch the game!

  36. I wasn’t at training today but he was in the rehab group on Saturday and worked well in all of the drills he undertook. I’m no expert but, by the way he was moving, I don’t think he’s too far from joining the main group.

  37. Completely agreed. We have a very competitive team, our younger players are desperate to succeed, and guys like Jones surely know their chances of winning premierships are diminishing with each passing year. However this will be the first year in a decade where we will be the hunted, rather than the hunters. Teams will be out to get us, they will put significant time into planning their matches against us. Suddenly we will be one of "the teams to beat". With that comes a lot of pressure, a lot more expectations, and harder matches. If our boys can handle this pressure, then there is nothing to stop us from going all the way (injuries aside!). Last year the pressure was to make finals. We nearly failed under that pressure. However when finals came around, nobody expected much from us and we delivered. This year the expectations will be that we make a Grand Final, if not win one. That is a lot of pressure. We know how hard it is for teams to continuously stay successful. It's going to be a fascinating season I reckon!

  38. I mainly focused on the rehabbers today as the new draftees were at Marvel for induction. In that group were Brayshaw, Oliver, Petracca, AVB, Stretch, Hunt, Harmes, Baker, Jones, Melksham, Lever, Jetta, O.Mac and T.Smith. Melksham, Brayshaw, Oliver and Lever all running boundary laps with a few of them vomiting towards the end. Jonesy doing sprints and a lot of boxing. He's getting a lot of work done on his lower back from the Physio. Petracca also needed further work on his knee throughout the session telling the Physio "It hurts when I stop moving." But he looked to be fine movement wise. All the rehabbers were moving really well actually. Everyone just ticking off each session and building nicely for round 1. Standout for me today was AVB with his leadership, he was really vocal and serious and wasn't letting anyone slack off. He was also showing Stretch and Baker how to tackle. No Viney on the track today.

  40. Unfortunately I was too young to see much of Robert Flower, although he is the reason I barrack for our great club. Oliver though, is the potentially greatest talent I have ever seen play for our great club. The kid could be anything!

  41. They have that [censored] Sheilds that runs around there as well, but all he's good for is making stupid sledges that backfire. I'd really love for us to absolutely smash the Hawks next season and really stick it up those arogant aholes.

  43. For the Storm to keep performing year after year in what is a NRL backwater is a credit to them. You have to respect what Craig Bellamy has achieved. They have pretty much been the Lions of the early 2000s but maintained it Cam Smith is a star
