  1. Hi AJ, I've being doing the SC comp on here for the last 10 yrs. And time for someone else to take it over. More than happy for you to organise it. Good luck.
  2. I didn't want to start a new thread for this article in the Age. In case some of you that may have missed this. Remembering those that left us too early in life, but I'm sure they are with us in spirit. Their families are keeping their legacy going. https://www.theage.com.au/sport/afl/families-of-demons-who-died-too-young-say-their-hearts-still-beat-true-20210915-p58ry0.html#comments Greg Parke played in the Mid 60's passed on, the morning of the 2021 Grand final. With the sadness that we have endured over the long journey to add No 13 to the trophy cabinet, the families of some of our past greats now have a big smile on their faces. Lest we forget.
  3. The results for 2021 season. Congrats to Ruff Nuts who won the Division 1 Grand Final GF Final Score 2505 defeating Turnernators 2407 This years "Bluey Medal" is awarded to BAMF team Maximum Johnson with a total season score of 50588 He is the only one thus far to have 2 in the trophy cabinet. If there is still enough interest we can do it all again in 2022
  4. I just came across this on YouTube. I didn't know it existed. Perhaps give Robbo some love. It looks like he could use a few more Subs.
  5. er has to be "Froggy" Cromptons snap that turned out to be the match winner.
  6. If someone had said to me, before the season got under way that we would be sitting on top on the ladder with only 2 losses I would have had them committed, and calling in the men in white coats. I have to go back to the 60's when every game I expected us to win (against anyone at the time).Expecting them to smash lower teams was a given.Over the years I like most, if not nearly everyone ,those expectations went out the window. One turning point for me was round 6,1992. 51-52? points up at the start of the last quarter against the Bummers, we lost! by a point. I sat dumbfounded, that was nearly as bad as the '87 Prem Final (but that's another story). From about there, I am supporting a team that you just can't trust to win any game. Over the years that has pretty much been the norm. And people wonder why we don't trust them. The faith in the team gets shattered nearly every time we expect a win, only to see our hopes go down the gurgler. Skipping ahead to where we are today. I wouldn't go as far as to say I like the fact, when the game was looking another slack performance, we have dug deep and got out the other side with a win. This based on a strong 2nd half. If we ever manage to play 4 quarters like that, then the belief builds. I'll credit Darren Burgess for getting them to a level that not only can we run out 4 quarters,but in the back of your mind you expect them to come home strong. 'Choco' Williams, I credit as the guy doing the stuff in the background, improving skillset and mindset.(I had hoped we had him a few years prior to now,but it didn't happen). We have basically the same list as the past couple of years. The improvement to some has been noticable. Now hoping he sticks around for a few more years. Between Burgess and Williams the improvement is in the pudding. (would be a kick in guts to lose one or the other right now). Goodwin .... I'm still on the fence. From all reports, he gets along with the players (can't please everyone), but needs a good support team behind him. It's looking like he has got that now. When it all goes pear shaped the coach cops it.We are on top of the ladder,so he gets credit for that. Yze has been groomed to be a head coach,he has served his apprenticeship ,if he doesn't get poached,I would like him to take over when Goodwins' time is up. We had a change at the top. Barlett stepped aside.I didn't see that coming, and a big thanks to him in the time he was at the helm.Wish him well.He got us through a rocky road. Now a 1st female Pres, looks like enjoying her first year guiding us through the finals. *just a word of warning*, DON'T send out finals tickets to members before it's confirmed we are actually playing them in. Thankfully that transformation went by without a hitch.Unlike some past events.A stable board is a strong and stable club.I haven't seen anything to gloat about yet,if we ever win a Grand Final. enjoy, but keep the ego's in check. Big heads are the downfall of any club. Nathan Jones made to 300 games. What a legend! Must say though, not overly gifted as a player.but he deserved the 300 game milestone.Every club needs a "Chunk" in their team. Could have easy walked to another club, and may have been even better in a strong team.The crap he endured is a testament to the man himself. I get peeved off at umps like everyone else, very rarely do I blame an ump for us losing a game. If we are good enough to win then it shouldn't be because of a crap decision. But having watched yesterdays game (QB) that mark awarded to Cameron near goal,that clearly May had his hands on 1st.Was a howler!! Look I know umpires get the gig cause their eyesight isn't the best, and its handy to confirm when there is a reply. but jezzus. Here is something left field that might worth a discussion. That is having a appeal,the Capt (or player?) can appeal,perhaps only 1 allowed per quarter per team. It may hold up the play a bit, although I don't like unnecessary holdups (NFL - stop/starts) Goal reviews can be bad enough,but a dodgy ump call might cost a team a GF win. To offset that stoppage, do away with the stupid nominate your ruckman at boundary throwins,and just get on with throwing the ball back regardless. Keep the nomination in ballups in general play. I will leave it there , I could go on about my thoughts on the players that have improved this year,and some that have been a disappointment (Weideman comes to mind for some reason). Please feel free to discuss your thoughts on our season thus far --- players, coaches etc. Just keep the bickering down a notch or two, opinions matter.
  7. Welcome to all the new and existing coaches. The 1st league is now full. If you missed out in getting into the 1st league, a 2nd league is now available. The code for the 2nd league is 586640
  8. I have opened the league for those wanting to join so far. The Code = 156881 This code is valid until the league is filled. So it's first in. Good luck.
  9. Welcome to this years Comp. I think everyone knows the drill. Supercoach "Name" along with last years "Team" name (if you were in last years comp). I need that info to check what league you are in for 2021. If you have changed or want to change any of those details from last year , post the info I will update it for 2021. If you haven't interested in playing but haven't been in the comp before, post your team name and wait for a code to be sent via PM. There are always plenty of spots. Just don't leave it until the day before the season starts. As it is not worth starting a new league for 1 or 2 players as this does happen. Good luck to everyone and enjoy :)
  10. And another season passes us by .......... The 2020 "Bluey" goes to Stephen247 who coached Captain GawnBeard. Total season Pts scored was 39,739. Grinter FC20 tried in vain to hold onto his medal he won last year. Ended runner-up. Congrats to Stephen247, who had a terrific season (in his hub) He finished 82nd overall in SC (must have had some anxious weeks doing his trades). Captain GawnBeard defeated Ruff's Nuts in a tight Division 1 GF. 2368 to 2335 pts And to finish up Superbads coached by DTJ took out the GF in D2 - Robert Flower league (well done) If he plays next season will get promoted into D1. That's a wrap for 2020. Cya all next season. Hoping everyone enjoyed playing and stayed safe in trying times.
  11. That's about everyone sorted for this season. If anyone else is interested in joining s SC League, the code = 539566 (until Full)
  12. Not yet. Got a few MIA's. I will give it to mid week, then everyone that has posted in here with confirmation will be sent a league code. So if you have confirmed you want to play this year, a code for a league is not far away now.
  13. Just an Update : Ruffles + WIseblood have joined Div1. Stephen + Demon Spofforth have been sent their code to join D1. Everyone else that has confirmed in the thread so far, I have noted as starters. Will just have to bide their time until I get a better idea who returns from Div 1. (Keep checking this thread regularly, and your msg box) Just a side note : badly worded on my part. It SHOULD read Post your Old USERNAME (with name of your Team) If you have changed both from the previous year. I have then have problems figuring out who is who. (I dont require your Christian name.) If you only change your team name, just post it I will do an update. Thx.
  14. Welcome Back. I have you and Doc's Demons marked as confirmed.
  15. Welcome to 2020 Supercoach Demonlands Comp leagues. Free to join and play (just need a Demonland account, that is free as well) Coach "Name" along with last years "Team" name (if you were in last years comp). I need that info to check what league you will be in for 2020. If you have changed or want to change any of those details for 2020, post the info I will update it. For those 1st timers, the comp is free to play, normally we have 3 comp leagues playing. As above, post your team name that you will be using, if you decide to change it,let me know so I know what team you are. For those that qualified for Div 1 (Stynes League) you will receive your league code 1st, you will need to join quickly so I can move onto Div 2 etc etc. SC is open now, you can begin selecting your teams. Ok, go for it! Coach / Team name if you are playing this year.
