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.

Some PA guy on BigFooty who apparently knows family says Jurrah has been told he will start next Sunday at the G <_<

I would be very very very surprised and disappointed if this were true.

Jurrah just isnt up to it yet. We have a real talent on our hands with this one, and we cant bring an underdone player into an underdone side.

Maric MUST be called up.

The person shows their location as Alice Springs and claims that Liam advised his mother he'd be playing for Melbourne this week and in turn Liam's mother told him.

The poster seems genuine enough but it seems an improbable scenario.

How much more under done is he than Jetta and Bennell was?

If true i find it exciting.

He might just be a player who lifts under the "big lights"

There are a couple of people who do genuinely know Jurrah and his family, judging from reading previous threads about him there. But I wouldn't have thought they would have had match committee meeting yet, let alone decided a team so early in the week.

I would be surprised too. Also thought he was underdone. Who would he come in for? Bate ?

Could be possible mate regarding Bate.

But am i alone thinking Bate is not doing as bad as some are saying. Having a peep over at ology and you would think the kid is a piece of garbage.

For a player who has just hit over 50 games, and is being asked to be a main target up forward for his relatively small size i think he has been ok. Sure he did not get much touches on the week but i still believe he works hard and is a handy un orthodox player.

He looked pretty awesome on Saturday night at Casey.

He is so quick and so skillful, i reckon he would do alright.

He is still pretty slight, but a taste of the big time might do him the world of good.

He is just so naturally gifted and he just glides across the ground like a gazelle.

He is the sort of player that may only have a handful of touches, but they will all be special and they will most likely excite and ignite the side and supporters.

I say put him in the side. Start the learning process.

This guy is dead-set going to be an absolute favourite amongst the fans. I can't wait for him to put on another 5-10kg's, because he will be unstoppable once he is physically ready.

Don't know how anyone can say this sounds legit, the 2nd post in the thread describes a situation he fibbed about only a couple of weeks ago.

sense Bailey wants to blood Jurrah and Watts ..and maybe a few others in the back half of the season.. Allows more time for preparation as well as some sense of continuity into next season

I say bring him in so we can all see him play :P

It does make sense that his debut will be planned ahead of time so his family/friends can be there. His level of "readiness" is also interesting. Jetta and Bennell don't seem ready physically but are doing fine. Whenever it is though it will be very exciting, and will be another step in an very unique story.

erical is the guy on BF who has made this prediction, he does have some history with claiming to know Jurrah's family and having inside knowledge, let me explain...

At the start of the year he created a thread on the drafting board stating that Jurrah was not happy in Melbourne and had left the club and gone back home, obviously this with complete and utter crap. Another poster said that he knew who erical was, a bus driver based in Alice, so it's plausible that he may speak to Jurrah's family on the odd occasion.

Whatever the truth is, erical's first claims were bogus. His family may have said something like 'Liam is finding difficult in Melbourne' which is fair enough and plausible, perhaps the chinese whispers effect kicked in? Who knows, just take it with a grain of salt.

I'd be rapt to see him play, but I can wait a couple of more weeks for him to develop his game more.

I was at Casey on Saturday night. He is not even close to being ready and would be very suprised if he played.

really? Wy not ready you think? I reckon throw him in and see what he can do. You can see the magic within him i have a feeling he is going to produce something beyond brillant when he steps up, Got to be better than Newton and a few others

    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.
