  • 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.

We need Dunn to play the defensive forward role. When we matched them a couple of years ago a big part of it was tagging their half backs. Garland and Dunn are ideal for that role, and would allow us to keep much the same back 6 as this week.

If Frawley does com in, it needs to be one of the backs who goes. Whoever that is will be desperately unlucky.

Hmmn, close down they're attack.

Heard on the radio that Pendlebury will be missing next week. Cracked Tibia. Likely to miss a few weeks. Swan back in likely though.

I'm sorry to have to disagree. But Watts was not a loose man in defence irrespective of what anyone in the media might have said. He played on Monfries, Jetta and Davey. He just made space when necessary.

Just to clarify, I probably worded it incorrectly, but it was not my intention to suggest that Watts was playing as a loose man, which is why i said he could pick up whoever is left and play that floater role. He did both on Saturday with great effect. Thanks to his ability to read the play, he floated off his man at times to cut off the entries into the forward 50. He had a number of fantastic defensive actions on Monfries and Watson, and it was great to say that his impact was such that they actually got Monfries to play a defensive role on Watts to reduce his impact

Out: Macdonald, Blease

In: Frawley, Bail

Like-for-like as fitness determines. No injuries equals no change.

Gee, I would love to see Blease available for this game !

Sometimes injuries suck and are cruel to some players. Blease has had his quota.

Time to call in Mr. Miagi ..

Pendles is out for them which is a massive bonus, especially for Jordie Mac

The key to Pies early season bad form was Heath Shaw getting tagged out of games - need to limit his ball and were in with a chance

But im sure Neeld knows exactly what needs to be done to beat them, its up to the players to implement it

Hopefully it rains ;)

Frawley as a forward?

Why not? Big body, stretch the Pies' back line.

Can take a mark and kicks okay.

Now that Sellar can look after Cloke? (gulp)

I agree JR. Did anyone see the interview where Frawley seemed very keen to have a go playing up forward?

Maybe putting him in for Green this week & trying him forward (unless a backline emergency calls) could be the best team we could field this week?

"Happy to report that Bartram is [censored] and has been since 2007. Don't bring him back."

---------------------- ____________________________________________________________________

I find it objectionable that a " supporter" could have such disdain for a guy who has given his guts , beyond the call of duty,to our club despite chronic injury.

Happy to report that Bartram is [censored] and has been since 2007. Don't bring him back.

Weak weak comment... the guy works hard and despite being lambasted for poor disposal or low possession rates, more often than not negates the oppositions' more dangerous players.

Yes get rid of Green easily our worst last week

Tapscott forward Frawley back is just fine by me

Hopefully Blease is ok if not maybe Bartram

Maybe I have missed some other thread, but what is the situation with Blease's injury (inflicted by that serial kicker / tripper / kneer Fletcher)?

EDIT: sorry, left out elbower

Agree hardtack

In the first six games he was one of about 5 who earned his spot every week.

Out- Green, Blease (if injured)

In- Frawley, Bail

Minimal changes to a winning team. Frawley must come in and if Blease is injured we need to bring in a runner. Can anyone confirm if Blease will miss?

In Misson's injury wrap he said he is reasonably confident of Blease coming up with the 8 day break - "a solid cork to pubic bone" - "should be available to play" assuming he gets through training according to one of the more serious dudes in footy

I dont doubt his effort.

His first five games were just OK.

He is/was never a star .

Be honest about Clint.

Even his tagging is a bit loose at times.

Clint has had many opportunities in this team and I hope he has to improve (a lot) to stay in it .

    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.
