  • 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.


Mark Robinson in todays HUN

This has to be one of the worst peices of "journalism" i have ever read, although Robbo is a glorified Bogan.

Yesterday he got his exclusive story completely wrong, & now today i read "what if it were true?" i beg your pardon...when does a journalist ever right this sh!t??

Your job Robbo is to tell the facts as best you can.

Maybe it was Robbo who consumed all 3 bottles of wine that night in November last.

What a [censored] writer (sorry excuse for said)

Resignation required.

Fact remains that Demetriou and AFL honchos asked Cook would he be interested in taking on North Melbourne.

The AFL. Unbeknown to North Melbourne. Geelong would be p!55ed, despite Cook saying no. Nevermind the casual offer, it's sometimes how it's done to canvass interest.

What did he report that wasn't fact ?

Barrass i am on the mobile right now so it is hard to access links. If no one else can do it i shall try and download it for you tonight when i make it home.

Basically Mark Robinson wrote an article yesterday that was completely wrong concerning Brian Cook going to Nought Melb.

So today he writes...But what if it was right.

Extraodinary behavior. Never seen it before.

The AFL approached Cook. Twice.

It may not have been the secret meeting Demetriou laughed off as a boozy night, but Round Robbo is not a million miles from the truth.

The full story lies somewhere between Round Robbo's story yesterday in the Herald Sun, and Andrew Demetriou's blasé dismissal yesterday on SEN.

The Herald Sun has always been a piece of crap, never pay too much attention to it. Robbo is worse than Sheahan I'm guessing? Very annoying on AFL 360 (I think it is?).

Formality. It was an off the cuff joke made after numerous bottles. Not a back page headline.

Wrong.

Fact is, he was asked, twice. Cook supports it. Despite the casual approach over dinner then lunch 4-5 months later.

This is not wrong WYL. Not if Cook supports Robinsons report.

Whether you like it or not, the AFL are concerned for North, they know everything that's going on with that club, and they've done it on their own bat without North or Geelongs knowledge. That is a story.

Mark Robinson is an accurate reflection of his readers. Bogan for bogans. He cannot string sentences together, let alone debate anything deeply.

However, Caro's article this morning was equally revolting. What a piece of work she is.

Wrong.

Perhaps, but i heard the sen interview with AD. Those guys are so soft and sycophantic it defies belief. I was crying out for them to ask the dead obvious question, which they never did of course. If indeed it was a joke by jolly ([censored]) andy d why did he choose North as the club, why not any other club. Even in jest picking North surely indicates they were/are worried about how it is being run.

And please AD don't trot out the rubbish about private conversations, only jokes, can't we say anything when out in our free time etc etc. The AFL exec on the turps at a public function? Button your lip and be a bit discreet, of course it will get out otherwise. I can just picture it, a bunch of over weight middle age blokes who think they rule the world telling everyone in ear shot how they were going to fix all the problems.They'd soon take a club CEO to task if they were say, bagging the AFL in a similar public forum

Also they didn't ask the other obvious question which is was it ever raised on another occasion? Which the very next day Cook volunteers it was, in a more formal way it would seem

Yes, Robinson does chew the language up when on television. His written rubbish must be heavily edited.

Yes. She has really stuck the high heels in deep twice in 48 hrs this week.

David Cloke is merely looking to maximise his sons football value. Aint nothing wrong with that.

Yes THAT is a story, but what Robinson wrote yesterday & today is rubbish.

Ok so you agree then, he nailed the story, but you consider it rubbish? Yet, I thought you said he got it completely wrong ??

You're awfully confusing.

did he write that he was going -or that he was approached ? a big difference

Edit: your reporting on his reporting is a bit dodgy.

Not really. It's in the paper therefore it is a story. However it is also the type of lightweight rubbish that journos print when, presumably, they have to fill a column and have nothing else.

And you just like an arguement.

North Melbourne are a story that will further develop. What Robinson wrote was rubbish. He nailed nothing.

It is the same as Quoting a Politician in the house of Reps or in the members Dining room. Totally different place. What was said at Icebergs was said in jest after a few.

You may consider it lightweight material. That's ok.

I would have thought the League going behind the back of two of its clubs, particularly Geelong, when its happy to spruik integrity, honesty, and getting found out is rather non-lightweight. What does it say ?

Probably what we as Melbourne supporters already knew. Someone can't be trusted.

I dont care if it was a throw away line after a few drinks as WYL has alluded to . Totally inappropriate.

    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.
