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.

Cheers Jack,

There's already some information about most of those players in their profiles already, but anything else would be a bonus.

Also looking for old reserves and under 19's teamsheets to fill in more names of people who didn't play seniors.

This is one of my favourites from that era - the original overseas invasion

According to his facebook,Trent Zomer plays basketball now for a team called Ringwood Hawks in the big League

At one point he was playing for Northern State University in the US :blink:

And even though that sounds like the most generic, made up name for a university ever it was in fact true http://www.nsuwolvesathletics.com/news/2010/5/20/MBB_0520100650.aspx?path=mbball

That's actually now, by the sounds of it. Looking at the first paragraph:

Northern State University head men’s basketball coach Paul Sather has announced his first wave of signees for the 2010-11 season. The group includes South Dakota native Dustin Tetzlaff, Tom Parks of Cheyenne, Wyo., and Australian import Trent Zomer. The three – along with Aberdeen Central High School product Jared Hannigan, who signed during the early period – will enroll in classes and join the Wolves on the court for the 2010-11 campaign.

Sounds as if he's having a serious crack at a professional Basketball career?

Hello,

Dugald Aitken played for Mt Pleasant in the Heathcote and District football league first year was 1990 I think he came to us from Balwyn. He won the clubs B and F in 1990 and 1991 he was BOG in the 1990 premiership. He also played in a losing GF in 1992 breaking his wrist early in the game. He played in the 1993/94 premierships. He then left Mounts we have tried to contact him for reunions. We believe he became a recluse and may have changed his name. If you happen to locate him we would appreciate a notification. He was a very popular player at Mounts. Regards Jim

    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.
