In the 1930s, legendary coach Frank ‘Checker’ Hughes told his players ‘you are playing like a lot of flowers. Lift your heads and play like Demons.’ 70 years on we introduce Checker, a new mascot who Demon fans will also find very familiar. Checker loves to reflect on our club’s grand history, but is even more excited by the future. His number one goal is to help Demon fans raise the roof of the MCG at every game.
