Demonblog's mid-season review and depression session

Well, it's still in the 'midst' of the season isn't it? Realistically this would have made more sense to do during the split round but I was busy freezing to death at Vi$y Park watching Casey. Now, let's look back at the horror that has been our season.

Following format stolen from the Big Footy Melbourne board, who stole it from somewhere else.

Our best winWell duh. You guess.

Our worst loss
Queen's Birthday or the Essendon game.

The single most exciting moment of the season so far
a) Finding out there was only 8 seconds to go in the Richmond game
b) Liam Jurrah's first goal
c) Signing two major sponsors when we weren't even going to get one.

The single worst moment of the season so far
a) The entire first quarter against the Pies.
b) Stynes' illness
c) John Meesen appears briefly and then disappears. Just like Jebus he will rise again.

a) Davey
b) Green
c) Sylvia

Could do more
a) McLean
b) Jones
c) Johnson

Mr Consistent
a) Moloney
b) Davey
c) Green

Can’t cement a spot
a) Dunn
b) Dunn
c) Dunn - wtf does the man have to do?

The player who I'm always ready to forgive for a mistake
a) Moloney
b) Martin
c) Green

The player who I'm always ready to knock for a mistake
a) Jamar (though on the strength of his two
b) Robertson
c) Johnson

Who do we want
a) Tom Scully
b) A mature aged KPF
c) SOMEBODY GOOD

The opposition player I'd pay money to see
a) Cyril
b) Pavlich
c) B. Harvey

The opposition player I’d pay money to see decked

Before the season, I thought we'd finish 15th
As of now, I reckon we'll end up lucky to make 16th.

Procedural announcement - From next week demonblog.com will redirect to a new site hosted by Blogspot. Both Mr. Big Footy himself and I have forgotten how to edit the links or display of this page, and I'm not sure the tiny readership of this site is making him enough money to bother. So, we move on. If you want to look into the future visit the new site before the redirection. Keep hitting up demonblog.com and you'll automatically be redirected when the change is made.

  1. Once again, a brilliant post.

    Can I double the money for the opposition player I'd pay money to see decked. (in any order). is it just me, or is Judd starting to look like the evil guy from Harry Potter.
