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.

Just watched the Bailey press conference on line. He looks like a man who's out of ideas. These last 2 games have clearly effected Bailey and his demeanour is really starting to resemble what you'd expect from a coach with a 4-30 record overall.

He got a bit upset with one journo who asked him whether or not he singled out the leadership group for last nights debacle. Bailey replied "all players share the responsibility".

He thought our tackling was more or less half assed. He was also very upset we gave away the early free kick goals.

-----------------

Has our list gotten to the point where it's uncoachable and unwinnable?

Last November I was thinking that Rich was the safe bet, as you can't beat a class midfielder. Watts and Naita came with a risk I thought. At the moment Rich looks the pick of the draft and good luck to Brisbane.

Very early days though, and I haven't seen Watts's game last night.

Morton seems more of a concern at the moment.

You also can't touch the senior coach either.

We're 4-30 since rd 1 2008 and they'll tell you that things are going rosy under Bailey.

The club is all talk at the moment. I think the MFC website should ban player interviews during the week outlining how they're going to make amends and are sick of honourable losses - it's all fluff.

I've been noticing a new phenomenon from generation Y and it's prevalent in the OP. And it's not that they think they're "versing" everyone, it's their incorrect use of the word "his". Often they really mean "he's" as in "he is", but they type "his". Staggering really.

But I digress. Watts will be a gem of a footballer. If you can't see it now that's ok, but the player you witness today you won't recognise in 3-5 years time.

I'm more concerned by our skill level and woeful midfield. More than ever I think we need 2 mids with whatever top 4 picks we receive at year's end. I've got no problem with Butcher if 'he's' (or should I say "his" so that some understand me) a clear standout, as top quality kpps are as rare as hen's teeth, but if there's any doubt I'd go with a mid to compliment Scully. I think we have the worst midfield I've ever seen.

You're right. Lets all panic.

It amazes me that so many can't see the forest for the trees.

If we just look at the Hawks and Blues of a few years ago who everybody would thrash and look at them today. It obviously takes time at the bottom with several draft picks to rebuild. We are doing that and will rise again with a strong list.

How in hell can you expect a young Watts etc to make the difference in his first year as a skinny kid.

I know this is probably wasted on those who just want to win a couple of games now and bugger the future, but be patient the Demons will rise again and hopefully stay up there for a long time.

H, watching tonight's game led me to the same point. We don't need another KPF. Bater will be fine as 2nd or 3rd tall. BUT if we cannot get the ball through the midfield we are dead. And just getting one is not enough. I found Morton unconvincing last night. Being reliant on Davey for any zip or line-breaking is an ineffective strategy but it is the only one we have. Blease better be good, and he well might be. BUT in case he is not, then we'd get two this year. I went last night with ehe hope of a cheeky win - now I'm (feeling sick again) just looking for player development and for weekly losses.

I thought Moloney was great, Sylvia was good, and the rest, including ruck, were NQR.

Just wondering if the scores of 'supporters' that advocate losing who seemed to have swamped Demonland are satisfied with the way we lost last night? Did it fulfill your request for a loss in the appropriate way? Were you comforted by the fact that the figures are looking good? Because to me it feels awful and Picks One and Two aren't going to fix what we saw last night.

If your satisfied by our club losing games then don't complain how they lose them.

We are not setting up for the future right now. We are tearing the hearts out of our young fellas and I feel empty.

If you advocate tanking, you are a tanker.

Anyone who loves the club would feel sick by such an insipid performance. That said, I'm going to be patient this year. What other choices are there ? We need stars and we need them quickly. Our best chance of procuring stars is through the pointy end of the draft. The expectation of getting a couple of top 3 picks helps keep morale up. It's not the issue of tanking, it's the issue of getting better. And we know what will help us get better.

So patience is required in 09. But it will be a different story in 2010. I will be out of patience next year if we don't see some measurable improvement.

Yes, how dare he pick up a spelling error

How come I know what you're going to post before you do ?

You're predictably boring these days. Why don't you surprise me and share some really good footy insight ?

If it's so obvious then you really need to think before you post. By the way, you never did answer my question in the other thread.

So how does it taste?

    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.
