  1. I agree that this article should be kept in perpetuity as the first page of the Demonland website. Demonstone, clearly, "you have the wisdom of ages". Well done and thankyou!
  2. I must admit that I am mystified that are rucks are so dominant and our do not take advantage at nearly every stoppage. I agree give it to Spargo and Jordan both can deliver the ball to a player on the lead. ANB is a good toiler however his delivery into the 50 is suspect and so has Jones. I think strategy and game plan will adapt with the new rule. I think every coach is still trying to identify how to safely get the ball out into the open. Richmond does it best at present. In a congested situation, it is clear that the players have been drilled to always hand ball forward no matter what. You
  3. I hope this not going to go on for the whole season. Seriously! Throw away lines from the media and people with self interest is one thing but the minute by minute, week on week, month on month and year on year assassination of our players is poor commentary and unhealthy.
  4. I still think the defence needs another tall. Meg Downie will be welcomed into this side in a couple of weeks. Maddie Gay is back next week. Well done ladies!
  5. Can we stop being soothsayers of doom. I have been tired of all the negative speak. Personally I have no problem with Simons coaching. There is no point in consistently talking down our people who are doing the best they can with the skills available in the playing group.
  6. I think Jackson may have something to say about this.
  7. Mahoney's professionalism through some of the worst periods of the MFC history has been outstanding. He and the recruiting team have been ahead of the game when it comes to obtaining the best possible draft position each year. He and his team have not gone about drafting the best available. They have chosen the best available for the Melbourne Football Club and the team. I believe he will be missed. Essendon have gained a very good strategist.
  8. I spent a week at Bleasdale one afternoon. We were asked to help ourselves. The result was not pretty. Great wine though, I still buy there Malbec.
  9. I am confused. Is this a thread for "trolls". Most of these comments are straight from the "Trump" twitter play book.
  10. Has been played out of position for a number of years. Leave him at half forward and replace Melksham.
  11. Decided I would have a Scotch before the last quarter and went to bed. Not much change from the Bullies game; other than they played more man on man football to stop the Saints run. This is why the Saints were held up so often in their attempt to move the ball quickly. Smashed in the centre again. Nothing new in that space. I would simply say to Gawn don't bother jumping mate and be the additional ground ball player. The midfield group have very little ability to move/release the ball to another player with and prefer to try and barge through (Viney) when it is in their best interes
  12. I went to the game last week. One of the floors to our set up once the we had kicked a behind (our own) was that the team or coaching panel could not stop the opposition full back from pin pointing a pass into the pocket to a loose doggies player. Who would then pass it on to another doggies player and then they were out. Sitting in the stands it was so obvious and yet rather than man up in forward line so as to stop this transition, they were happy to let it go and each time this was an easy exit with at least three goals coming from this play. It was horrible to watch. I am pretty sure the f
