  1. As long as the Demons just take it one quarter at a time and one game at a time we should hopefully see continued improvement. Winning is all that matters...and we haven't done much of that since 1964! Nevertheless, as long as the Demons don't look in the changeroom mirrors admiring ourselves too much (as Mick Malthouse said!) or drink our own bath water then we should go ok. Either way, I am just taking it one week at a time very slowly because there is no point getting ahead ourselves.
  2. Mark "Choco" Williams should be helping them here. Particularly when it comes to goal kicking execution. It is good to see the red or yellow tape on the footballs to help those players who need to improve their kicking skills. Adem Yze who was always a great kick for goal and should be helping those players who wish to get better at goal kicking too. AFL players get paid alot of money compared to us regular people with our regular jobs. If an AFL player can't volunteer an extra 30 minutes to 1 hour to practice their goal kicking before or after training then they will never improve t
  3. I would definitely ask Gary Pert about our home base in the MCG precinct. I am also curious to see if we could re-try the Jolimont station option? I understand the East Melbourne residents want to walk their dogs but you would think a nearby football oval and a community centre with health and fitness facilities close by would be to their benefit? I would also ask if further arrangements are being made to try and get more support from the MCC? We basically helped make the MCG not just a cricket hub but a sporting hub. The MCC has grown very wealthy from VFL and AFL football and the M
  4. Very excited to have Mark "Choco" Williams on board at the Demons as head of development. His brief interview was super impressive! You can tell he is incredibly passionate about football and loves teaching younger players. Looking forward to the impact he will begin to have on our younger players this year and beyond. A wonderful recruit for the Demons to obtain!
  5. For those who don't know, a "Creed" is something that can be a formal doctrine or set of beliefs or philosophy that an organisation can encapsulate what they stand for. The development of a "Creed" is something which can also help with driving the standards and culture of an organisation. A good example of a "Creed" is one that our new MFC Head of Development, Mark "Choco" Williams' Father, the late and great Fos Williams created for the Port Adelaide Football Club in 1962. Here is a link to it for those who haven't read it before: https://www.portadelaidefc.com.au/club/history/the-c
  6. As previously mentioned I am incredibly excited about the Demons recruiting Mark "Choco" Williams. He may be a bit eccentric but he is a brilliant coach and teacher. To have him as head of development will be fantastic. For those those who have some spare time over the Christmas holidays I highly recommend checking out Mark's "winning teams" YouTube channel found here: https://youtube.com/channel/UCdqLn6TslJwdR70ojbTXAUQ Having Mark teach players like Max Gawn, Angus Brayshaw, Clayton Oliver, Bayley Fritsch, and of course, Christian Petracca how to kick correctly in play
  7. I hope Kobe Farmer trains well and is doing extra skills and running during his Christmas holidays. If he does well enough he will earn a spot on our list. I definitely would like the son of "the wizard" Jeff Farmer running around playing for the Demons again. Jeff was an excitement machine and I always felt we missed our opportunity to win a Premiership when he left the Demons. Losing Jeff was a far bigger loss than we expected at the time. His son needs to be talented enough though.
  8. I am a bit late to this discussion but I thought I should give my 2 cents worth. This is something that needs to certainly be pursued by us as Demons supporters. We cannot let this fall down the memory hole of the AFL. It is vital that Melbourne Football Club Chairman Glen Bartlett follows up on this in relation to the Demons getting compensation for any loss of our NT Academy zone. Especially as this gives the Gold Coast Suns an unfair advantage obtaining the Darwin Indigenous zone. Outgoing Magpies President Eddie McGuire (love him or hate him) would be screaming b
  9. This is a great initiative to get Jonathan Brown who was a champion player at the Brisbane Lions to impart his wisdom and teach Sam Weideman how to play properly as an AFL forward for the Demons. I think one of Sam's biggest deficiencies has been lack of confidence. He needs to jump more for his marks no matter what is in his way and really focus on his goal kicking. Jonathan Brown will hopefully be a fine teacher for Sam and also teach him to toughen up a bit more.
  10. I unfortunately can't make it. Still super busy with work commitments. I have 2 questions and 1 statement. Question 1 - What is happening when the home training base? When will it be announced? Where will it exactly be? How much will it cost? Statement 1 - Congratulations on appointing Mark "Choco" Williams as Head of Development. We are over the moon about it and we are looking forward to him working closely with our Demons players and helping them develop. Question 2 - This is merely a suggestion but would it be possible to get the Demons players to look to creating a "Cr
  11. I am absolutely over the moon with this appointment of Mark "Choco" Williams as Head of Development! I was crying out for this for nearly 2 years! Finally! What a massive coup for the Demons to have someone of Mark's football IQ and calibre at the club! He was a great coach at Port Adelaide and also led them to their first AFL Premiership in 2004. I cannot wait for him to start at training with our Demons players and impart his wisdom, skills and knowledge upon them. This is a massive boost to our club! I am now genuinely excited about season 2021! Go Demons!
  12. Unfortunately, I have family commitments and cannot attend. I would definitely appreciate someone asking the Melbourne Football Club what is the status of our Home Base. I would like to know where it will exactly be, how much it will cost and when will building begin? Getting a Home Base should be our number one priority besides winning a Premiership.
  13. It's finals or bust. If we don't make the finals then Simon Goodwin will be sacked.
  14. I was pleasantly surprised with this pick swap. It puts us in a strong position as I was not expecting the Demons to have any picks in the first round of the 2020 AFL draft. There will still be plenty of talent around with picks #18 and #19 in the 2020 AFL draft. I know Archie Perkins has been spoken about, but not sure if he will slip down to us. However, you never know. Finlay McCrae would be very handy. Especially as he is supposed to be an excellent kick of the football and that is something that we are crying out for at the Demons. Personally, I am keen on Nik Cox who
  15. Quite pleased to be getting Ben Brown from the Kangaroos. He looks much better in a Demons jumper! 😁 Hope he has an excellent pre-season and gets nice and fit for the 2021! We just gotta make sure our midfielders lower their eyes and kick the ball to him on the lead. The next question will be if he will continue wearing the number 50 or choose a different number?
