Melbourne Demons To Start ‘Rebuilding’ For 2014 Season

Sports satireMark Neeld, coach of AFL team Melbourne, said his sights are now firmly focused on 2014, declaring his team’s chances for 2013 “well and truly over”.

“With only 21 games left this season, we’re going to use the opportunity to blood some younger kids and try out some new things,” Neeld said.

Neeld, who took over the reins at the club last year, said experimenting with untested players may come at the cost of winning games, but it was a price worth paying.

“At the Melbourne Footy Club we’re always looking a season ahead and we’ve never let winning games get in the way of that vision.  This as a great opportunity to get things right for next year and that’s why I’ve told the boys that 2014 starts now. They’re totally focused on that. Our fans have a lot to look forward to”.
