Discussion on recent allegations about the use of illicit drugs in football is forbidden
  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    Posting unsubstantiated rumours on this website is strictly forbidden.

    Demonland has made the difficult decision to not permit this platform to be used to discuss & debate the off-field issues relating to the Melbourne Football Club including matters currently being litigated between the Club & former Board members, board elections, the issue of illicit drugs in footy, the culture at the club & the personal issues & allegations against some of our players & officials ...

    We do not take these issues & this decision lightly & of course we believe that these serious matters affecting the club we love & are so passionate about are worthy of discussion & debate & I wish we could provide a place where these matters can be discussed in a civil & respectful manner.

    However these discussions unfortunately invariably devolve into areas that may be defamatory, libelous, spread unsubstantiated rumours & can effect the mental health of those involved. Even discussion & debate of known facts or media reports can lead to finger pointing, blame & personal attacks.

    The repercussion is that these discussions can open this website, it’s owners & it’s users to legal action & may result in this website being forced to shutdown.

    Our moderating team are all volunteers & cannot moderate the forum 24/7 & as a consequence problematic content that contravenes our rules & standards may go unnoticed for some time before it can be removed.

    We reserve the right to delete posts that offend against our above policy & indeed, to ban posters who are repeat offenders or who breach our code of conduct.

    WE HAVE BUILT A FANTASTIC ONLINE COMMUNITY AT DEMONLAND OVER THE PAST 23 YEARS & WE WOULD LIKE TO CONTINUE TO BE ABLE TO DISCUSS THE CLUB WE LOVE & ARE SO PASSIONATE ABOUT.

    Thank you for your continued support & understanding. Go Dees.

........ And another sub-major sponsor on the way. The combined total will be greater than the revenue gained from the Primus deal. Also, I think you will find a another former player from the 90's was heavily involved in brokering the deal.

Can't wait to hear what the ardent critics of Jimmy and Schwabby have to say now.

Hrm.

Yes this is a concern, I wasn't aware of this. (2m contingent on us staying in Olympic park deal)

I am fuzzy on the details but wasn't this deal going to be far too expensive for us which is why we were keen to get out of it?

I am excited about the new stadium (it's looking great from the train) but a little concerned about the cost.

Happy, happy days!

I believe Lawrie De La Rue (a long tome Demons supporter) was heavily behind this sponsorship.

Might be worth congratulating and pledging support:

Yes, Mr De La Rue was integral in securing this deal (Caro's article says so).

I heard on SEN that there's going to be a press conference sometime today where the Hankook (and possibly the other co-sponsor) deals will be formally announced by the club.

My understanding was that we'd still partly house our operations at MRS (or 'The Missus' as I've heard it called recently) at Olympic Park, but less-so than originally intended.

This would mean a reduced cost in rent, to around $200K-$300K... I think. I thought I read that in an article a few months back.

... or I may have heard it elsewhere. I have a contact involved in the management of that facility, but even she's unsure at this stage. Obviously negotiations are ongoing.

Yeah u would think they would not hold out much longer announcing the second sponsor as they would be keen to start making jerseys with the new sponsor logos on them. I know i am waiting till thats sorted to buy a new jersey

Very good news at last and is timely to see all the efforts have achived a positive outcome!! Will be great if both sponsors are announced and on board this week! Will give us an opportunity to support the sponsors! and the whole club can then concerntrate on footy in the 2 weeks before Round 1.

Bit late for the family day on Sunday but will need to let supporters know about merchandise with sponsors logos - maybe in 3 or 4 weeks time. That way we can thank sponsors for coming on board!

The league has been advancing the Demons money to deal with cash-flow issues and is understood to be helping the club secure its second major sponsor, which is understood not to be linked with gambling agencies

I think given the direction the club is trying to take, this is quite good news

"Well done Schwabby and Jimmy who have worked tyrelessly to get this deal over the line. The Demon supporters will be pumped"

Courtesy of a SMS to SEN this morning. I wish I was that witty at 6:30am!!

SEN also mentioned the combined sponsorship deal of Hankook and ???? will be worth $1.5mil a year which indicates the next sponsorship is worth $2.4mil over 3 years (bigger than Hankook). Announcing Hankook early will give them some spotlight before the bigger and more prominent sponsor is announced?

I think the press conference has been and gone, because there's a report on the MFC website: http://www.melbournefc.com.au/news/newsart...15/default.aspx

It clearly states that there will be another sponsor, but that sponsor has not been named yet.

Maybe the other major sponsor will be announced on the footy show tonight?

At least this gives me a good reason (for a change) to actually watch the Footy Show tonight. :)

While I am very, very happy that the Demons now have this new (co-) major sponsor in Hankook tyres I won't be totally satisfied until we have our 2nd major sponsor signed up before Round 1.

I wonder who the 2nd major sponsor could possibly be.....??? :blink:

Great stuff.

I think Hankook will be the only ones confirmed for a week at least as you may aswell give both sponsors time on stage to themselves.

The Primus deal was $1m a year, so this is really promising stuff. Here is hoping that we can turn a couple of the companies that miss out on the major sponsor slot to be second tier sponsors.

Also, in Caro's article she referred to the MCC taking us back (or us going back) and I was wondering whether that means we could share some space in their merchandise store which is much less hidden away at the G.

It's a small thing, I know, but just something I thought about when reading the article.

Just received a club email announcing the Hankook deal. In it there was a link to Red Mercury, which is a service offered by Vodaphone. Is this something new, or just a part of the ongoing Vodaphone gig?

I have never seen that promotion before. Good to see one of our other corporate partners doing deals for the members. I best give them a call to see what it'll take to switch from my Primus phone and internet connection.

Fantastic to see Hankook come on board too, i'll endeavour to support them like I have supported our other major sponsor's over the years.

Not sure about that.

Not sure either about the membership tally on the right, whether its new or not.

Either way, I've never noticed it, but I love it.

Hi Demon fans,

I'm with LD Wholesale Tyres, the Hankook distributors in Vic/Tas and new major sponsor for the MFC! Thought it might be a good idea to join the number 1 Demon forum in case any of you have any questions regarding Hankook or LD Wholesale - where to get them, which tyres to choose etc.

We are very excited about the opportunity to be officially involved with the Demons and look forward to a long and prosperous association.

Hope to se some of you at family day on Sunday and at the G throughout the year!

Go Dees!

    GAMEDAY: Rd 07 vs Richmond

    It's Game Day and the Demons once again open the round of football with their annual clash against Richmond on ANZAC Eve. The Tigers, coached by former Dees champion and Premiership assistant coach Adem Yze have a plethora of stars missing due to injury but beware the wounded Tiger. The Dees will have to be switched on tonight. A win will keep them in the hunt for the Top 4 whilst a loss could see them fall out of the 8 for the first time since 2020.

    OOZEE by The Oracle

    There’s a touch of irony in the fact that Adem Yze played his first game for Melbourne in Round 13, 1995 against the club he now coaches. For that game, he wore the number 44 guernsey and got six touches in a game the team won by 11 points.  The man whose first name was often misspelled, soon changed to the number 13 and it turned out lucky for him. He became a highly revered Demon with a record of 271 games during which his presence was acknowledged by the fans with the chant of “Oozee” wh

    TRAINING: Friday 19th April 2024

    They are out for a run just as it starts raining. It didn't last long, ended up a reasonable session weather wise.  Light duties, BBB, rehab Farris-White, Melky, Salem and Spargo, all with private trainers. They are all playing soccer, huge amount of noise. 36-40 (difficult to get a count) in the main squad, biggest I've seen it in ages. Choco is barking out the orders. Goody has intense body language as he observes. Bowey in a lime green cap (no contact), and in the sim

    ICEBREAKER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons have broken the ice for season 2024 with a pulsating come-from-behind victory over Port Melbourne in which it took the lead for the first time at the halfway mark of the final quarter. The game played in mild Autumn conditions in neutral territory at Kinetic Park, Frankston, never reached great heights in standard but it proved gripping in character at the end at the Casey Demons overcame the Borough to win by 15 points after trailing badly early in the second half.  P

    MAULED by Whispering Jack

    The writing was on the wall from the very first bounce of the football. The big men went up, Max Gawn more often than not, decisively won the ruck hit out and invariably a Brisbane Lions onballer either won the battle on the ground or halved the contest and they went at it repeatedly until they finally won out. Melbourne managed the first goal from Alex Neal-Bullen but after that the visitors shut out every area of Demon presence around the ground except in the ruck duels. It was a mauling.
