Demon (2/10)



  1. As a few have mentioned, you could hear the sound from the crowd and it was sickening. Bomber said something along the lines of 'King could've broken his leg' which was just so out of touch given the seriousness of the injury. Would love to see the actual quote, I've looked for it but haven't found it.
  2. Of the 5 games we’ve played against the bottom 4 teams, tonight was the first time we’ve been in front at half time. Defensively we look horrible against poor sides when they don’t go down the line. They simply employ a game plan to counter our strengths and we have no answer but to just keep doing the same thing.
  3. Isn't that her job though? She openly admits her role is not that of a match report writer. If footballers/administrators/boards are doing the wrong thing, you'd prefer it be swept under the carpet and not have them be held accountable? That's a big part of the role of journalists in all sectors.
  4. It's an interesting point and one that would definitely have been true before 2020. However with the pandemic there seems to be a shift towards people not needing to live as centrally as in the past. Whether that lasts is the question. We've already seen Gawny and Lever move down to the coast which is the same or similar distance to Casey as the inner city. Is it possible we could create an option for players to live on the east coast in a similar way Geelong has on the west? They have attracted superstar players like Danger and Cameron who would only play for Geelong because of geographical/lifestyle reasons. I'm sure cashed up footballers can afford to live in Sorrento, Mount Martha etc. which take a similar amount fo time to get to Casey as their traffic congested trip to Goschs. The real key would be a Social Club. We need a viable SC within walking distance to the G for members/supporters.
  5. Episode 2 been dropped. How are we feeling now? People still hate it? Agreeing with Kane?
  6. You are wrong and have absolutely no idea what you’re talking about.
  7. Yeah, fair enough. I guess we’ll find out.
  8. Have I missed something? The doco looks like it’s about the 2019/20 preseason. How is that ‘reminding people we’ve been garbage for 50 years’? It doesn’t seem to indicate they’ve dug up footage from the 80s.
  9. Cornes is paid to stir the pot, not too fussed if he wants to get a headline. But the whingers on here are hilarious. You people want minute by minute updates from the club, in depth injury reports, communication on how players are going. Then the club release a behind the scenes doco and you tell them to shut up. Do you think this was Max Gawn’s idea? Do you think Jack Viney is behind the camera? It will likely just be vision of stuff that was happening anyway and we’re all just being given an insight. 95% of the whingers will still watch it. Don’t take the easy negative path that everyone in this country seems to take. Cheer up, stop whinging and enjoy the ride!
  10. The code is Australian Rules Football. There is a Hall of Fame and there are coaches that have been inducted into it. Clarkson will be inducted. My reply was to a poster suggesting Mahoney should have convinced Clarkson or Simpson over to become a coaching director. Nice try on the condescending ‘young un’ too. Didn’t mind it.
  11. Supporter gets angry because Mahoney doesn’t convince Hall of Fame coach to break contract, retire from coaching to take up lesser role on less money at different club. There’s a lot of ‘old man yells at cloud’ about this.
  12. My SISTER just TEXTED me to say the FACEBOOK PAGES ARE SAYING Petracca and Salem have ASKED TO BE TRADED. Everyone have a think about that chain of information. It’s almost as good as ‘someone told me they heard on radio’. Definition of Chinese whispers anyone...
  13. Commenting on performance is all fair game. Stooping to taking personal swipes always says a whole lot more about the person doing the swiping. No one thinks you’re tough. No one thinks you’re funny. Everyone knows you would only do it from the safety of being behind a keyboard. Keep it to discussing performance and we’re all happy to engage.
  14. I always find this stance interesting. Not having a go at you as I’m just generally interested, but what would you like him to say?
  15. What is narcissistic personality disorder? Narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) involves a pattern of self-centered, arrogant thinking and behavior, a lack of empathy and consideration for other people, and an excessive need for admiration. Others often describe people with NPD as cocky, manipulative, selfish, patronizing, and demanding. Signs and symptoms of narcissistic personality disorder: Grandiose sense of self-importance Grandiosity is the defining characteristic of narcissism. More than just arrogance or vanity, grandiosity is an unrealistic sense of superiority. Narcissists believe they are unique or “special” and can only be understood by other special people. What’s more, they are too good for anything average or ordinary. They only want to associate and be associated with other high-status people, places, and things. Narcissists also believe that they’re better than everyone else and expect recognition as such—even when they’ve done nothing to earn it. Frequently demeans, intimidates, bullies, or belittles others Narcissists feel threatened whenever they encounter someone who appears to have something they lack—especially those who are confident and popular. They’re also threatened by people who don’t bow down to them or who challenge them in any way. Their defense mechanism is contempt. The only way to neutralize the threat and prop up their own sagging ego is to put those people down. They may do it in a patronizing or dismissive way as if to demonstrate how little the other person means to them. Or they may go on the attack with insults, name-calling, bullying, and threats to force the other person back into line. Sense of entitlement Because they consider themselves special, narcissists expect favorable treatment as their due. They truly believe that whatever they want, they should get. They also expect the people around them to automatically comply with their every wish and whim. That is their only value. If you don’t anticipate and meet their every need, then you’re useless. And if you have the nerve to defy their will or “selfishly” ask for something in return, prepare yourself for aggression, outrage, or the cold shoulder.
