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.

Give him a few more games.

You get your chance after sitting out a few games, and you grab it and play your guts out......you don't stand around looking disinterested........he does not deserve a few more games he hasn't earned the right

.if Robbo comes back this weekend he will show Newton what to do.........expect him to give Geelong defence no peace at all.........

Absolute crap, he chased hard all day but his kicking let him down. It's obviously a confidence issue as he tried to banana it from about 10 meters out. He has the skill to be a decent forward but just needs to get his confidence up a bit.

So Michael Newton now leads Demonland's illustrious top 10 of whipping boys:

1) M Newton

2) T Johnstone

3) C Sylvia

4) A Yze

5) S Godfrey

6) J White

7) M Bate

8) C Bruce

9) L Williams (remember him :lol: )

10) B Miller

I'm fairly sure B Grgic was before demonland's time.

:D

Ahhh Lukey Williams. Those were the days.

Seriosuly though, I dont think we need another Newton thread.

At least Michael Newton tries, He is simply not blessed with ability. I feel sorry for Bailey who has no option but to play this guy. I implore all Melbourne supporters to watch Matthew Bate closely for just one game and take note how much of a pretend footballer he is, This guy does not chase, Consistently finds that spot on the ground called NO MANS LAND and on numerous occasions takes short steps to avoid contact. NOT GOOD ENOUGH !!!!

What Clint Bartram did i thought was incredible & i will never question his Loyalty to the Red & Blue. Good on ya Barts.

Could it not be argued that under such circumstances a player could not be 100% mentally focussed on the game at hand and therefore playing is to the detriment of the team and a selfish act?

With your "Wait & see " Philosophy maybe we should get the Cockatoo Collins Twins back in the side just in case they actually could play & just Happened to play a bunch of bad games with us.

Michael Newton does not Bust his Gut to play his Best, like a lot of guys are now doing further up the ground. He will not make it Long term.

"Has the Ability but not the application" Seen it all before.

Of course it could be & that would be different for every player. I am informed D.B had a long talk with him before the game. I thought Clint did a good Job.

Dear Michael,

I will keep this Brief as i know you have a limited attention span as shown by your game last sunday at twilight.

If you had played with the same amount of PASSION & COMMITMENT as Clint Bartram did the club could well have won a second game in 7 days.

What Clint Bartram did i thought was incredible & i will never question his Loyalty to the Red & Blue. Good on ya Barts.

Michael do you want to play AFL Football....Really....

[censored] Poor effort. As a Forward you are expected to kick goals within 10 metres. Otherwise you are not a forward or a footballer.

R.I.P. Mr Bartram Your son is a credit to us all

Do you honestly think he will see this

It's interesting to hear/read the differing opinions about Newton. What some people see as lack of effort, skill and work ethic, others (myself included) see as very low confidence. We know he can kick and yet he choked under the pressure he felt on Sunday. In many ways he reminds me of a young David Schwarz without the self confidence.

Some people take longer than others to make their mark, how many games has he played again? Why wouldn't you persist with him when hes the only full forward we have at the moment, he crashes the packs and gives a bit of structure to our forward line atleast. "does not bust his gut" is crap, he chases as hard as anyone else. I know hes not a long term option for us but he gives us something up there atleast

No i Don't but i haven't been near a PC since last week so i had to get it out of my Head. Newton's effort on Sunday caused me to be "in a world of Pain!" during that 3 hours, just letting off steam.

Your a softie with players Fitz. You obviously did not see players like Simon Eishold, Jim Tilbrook Todd McHardy or "Spud" Dullard. These are mere examples, the list goes on.....

Newtons efforts on Sunday Night are a big Factor as to why we get treated Badly by the AFL Community-why we get laughed at.

Sick of it. He has no real ticker. He will not make it at The Top Level.

you must be watching a game I haven't seen, Newton crash a pack????????.........he chases shadows and he was told twice by Miller at the game on Sunday that he was in the wrong place......so much for a bit of structure.............if you watch a team you can forgive skill errors as long as the player tries...........the majority of posters on this board think that Newton DOES NOT TRY.........he is not an 18yr old rookie in his first or second game.....he has had two years under DB so he knows what is required........he has to produce.......and to a standard that makes you a Key Forward....see the article on MFC website...Bailey barely hides his disappointment in him again........

Poor guy has suffered from everyone talking him up so much a few seasons ago

Its the same people that are saying he should be given a few more games when clearly his form does not warrant it.

Another Newton thread?

Dear lord.

You of all people making that complaint.

So Michael Newton now leads Demonland's illustrious top 10 of whipping boys:

1) M Newton

2) T Johnstone

3) C Sylvia

4) A Yze

5) S Godfrey

How did your bundle of class go against Geelong when the pressure was on? Awfully cold day at the Cattery but he still melted and was never seen :lol: .

Please Note:

As with the Sylvia thread, I have merged the other various Newton threads into this one.

Yes it makes this a massive topic to browse through, but it beats having to rename Demonland "The Michael Newton Circus".

Cheers

I don't wish the bloke any personal harm, but if I ever see him run out in the Melbourne guernsey again I will projectile vomit. The sooner he's off the list, the sooner we can all stop being frustrated by his complete lack of effort.

The juice is all we`ve got in tall forwards at the moment. Wether we like it or not we have to persist with him, at least till seasons end. The dees desperately need some sort of forward structure and some targets up front. Untill weve got other options juice newton will have to play a role

And that is perhaps the most realistic post on Newton thus far.

    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.
