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.


Changes for next week (v Brisbane)


Gouga

Recommended Posts

Tough to make changes after such a good performance but we have some good players that should be ready to come back in next week to take on Brisbane.

In: McDonald (if fit), Moloney (if fit)

Out: Bennell, Jones

Backs: MacDonald, Frawley, Rivers

Half backs: Bartram, Garland, Bruce

Centres: McDonald, Moloney, Scully

Half forwards: Bail, Jurrah, Green

Forwards: Sylvia, Watts, Wonaeamirri

Followers: Jamar, Davey, McKenzie

Interchange: Dunn, Johnson, Maric, Morton

Trengove is also a chance to come back in, but for who???

I understand McDonald and Moloney are automatic selections, but how do you drop anyone?

Jones plays an important role every week. 2 goals this week as well, played a pretty nice game playing on Kirk.

Bennel plays a really crucial role in our forward line with his forward line pressure. 14 goals or something from turnovers was purely due to our pressure in the forward line. Bennel sets that example. He stays for sure!

Agree, it is very tough to drop anyone, but as you said, McDonald and Moloney are automatics selections, or are they?

With the 6 days turnaround I'm sure they will consider resting some of the younger guys so I expect to see some 'general soreness' omissions this week if McDonald and/or Moloney are fit to come back in.

Is Scully a chance to be rested?

Its funny early in the year, was easy to decide who to drop and who to pick.

Now i give up lol.

Out: Maric, Johnson? Someone else?

In: McDonald, Moloney, Trengove?

My normal goal is to align my expectations with a likely reality, but this week I have absolutely no idea. It seems absurd that we can play a game like that and have three potential unforced changes. I don't want to drop anyone.

I call on my right to quit my armchair selector position for the week as it's too hard :)

Terrible problem to have, eh? I don't think I will play this game next year if we have Gysberts, Tapscott, Blease, Gawn, etc and whoever we draft pushing for spots. :)

IN: MOLONEY

OUT: SCULLY

Perhaps bring back Junior and only if he's cherry ripe

i know this is a mssive game, we will be going in favourites and brisbane will fancy themselves to notch their first win in a while- remember they only lost to the saints by a few goals the other week.

Strong feeling that Watts will be rested.

Would not surprise me. The body might be a little banged up and he might need a rest.

Considering Trengove was 'rested' for an interstate game, I expect the same to happen to Scully.

IN: Trengove

OUT: Scully

Would be very difficult to drop anyone on todays performance. Maybe Scully will be rested. I don't think Watts will miss, hes starting to put together some consistant performances and with Bate out is our link up man on the half forward line. Super happy with Bartram's effort today, im my first post on demonland i stated he's always the 1st name to come up on these threads, but today he showed how important he is. Sure he doesnt have the skills, but his endevour and defensive work is brilliant. Don't rest McKenzie, he's tackling pressure is paramount and the main reason Swans had little impact around stoppages today.

Possible ins : Moloney, McDonald and Trengove

Possible outs: ?????

Tend to agree. Just a rest though for Sculls, certainly not form. I saw Beamer limping badly today, be very surprised if he comes back in next week(How did we get away with naming him in the 22??, he was never a chance of playing). Perhaps a rest for J Watts would not be a bad idea? Warnock will also be considered for 1 of the gorillas.

Maybe Dunn.... saw him leave the rooms on crutches... not sure why though

Hardest decision all year... but if Moloney and Junior are fit and ready, you certainly put them straight back into the side.

IN: McDonald (if fit... again), Moloney, Trengove

OUT: Bail, McKenzie (general soreness), Scully (general soreness)

P.S. Has Dunny turned a corner or what??? Wowza! :)

    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.

    DEMONLAND: Good evening, Demon fans and welcome to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast … It’s been a beautiful last day of September and how sweet it is to bring you our coverage of all things that matter about the great Demon resurgence which we’ve seen over the past six or seven months. How our team overcame a turbulent off season and a disappointing start to 2024 on a humid night in Sydney, turned our detractors into believers and then ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    TRAINING: Sunday 7th April 2024

    Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin ventured down in the rain to Gosch's Paddock for the Demon Family Series April School Holiday Open Training session. Not such a good morning, weather wise. As I arrived, it starting raining, settled into watching some Victory players have a kick around. The MFC squad come out as the rain abated, they had wide smiles as the walked down the roped corridor. Plenty of joy from the supporters towards them, kids everywhere, maybe about 500 to a 1000 of us.
