Former Brownlow medallist Jim Stynes is set to become the new president of the Melbourne Demons. The Footywrap caught up with him in an exclusive interview before the Queens Birthday clash.
The Demons were caught short despite a spirited performance against Collingwood. It’s been a big week for the Demons who celebrated their 150th birthday on the weekend. They have some claim to being the oldest sporting club in the world- 20 years older than Manchester United and 44 years older than the New York Yankees.
Also on the agenda is the standout performances of Baby Ablett and Buddy who amassed 39 touches and 9 goals respectively. Can’t wait for their showdown in round 17 when the Hawks and the Cats finally meet at the MCG. And check out the difference between Paul Roos and Dean Laidley’s coaching styles. Roos whistles whilst rearranging the three quarter time magnetic board while Laidley destroyed a phone in the Kangaroos loss to Geelong.
