Posting Unsubstantiated Rumours on this Website is Strictly Forbidden
  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    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 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

    SCRUTINY & RESILIENCE by Whispering Jack

    If the week when preseason training melds into scratch matches with other clubs, is the first marker for the beginning of a new season, then this has certainly been a torrid opener for the Melbourne Football Club in its campaign to remain a leading AFL premiership contender in 2024. The Demons were already under enormous scrutiny from the media and football’s fan base (including their own) after consecutive straight-sets finals exits, with Clayton Oliver’s well documented woes, the Joel Smi
