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.

"The match also has long-term ramifications given GWS has promised to bid for Demons father-son candidate Jack Viney should it finish below Melbourne.

It would see the Demons giving up a top-three pick for Viney rather than a mid-20s national draft selection, adding salt to the wound opened when the Giants poached Scully."

When did this happen?

This worries me if it is true.

If true I would adopt the Eddie approach and make a quiet phone call to GWS reminding them that Patton was a MFC supporter and that as a family club, how concerned the MFC is that he is separated from his mother and sister and that it is incumbent on us to help him get back to his family. A huge pay packet would also help the family with any financial issues and of course, we would advise that there is a job open to his mother and sister at the MFC, as they are widely regarded as being among Australia's leading membership assistants and a salary of $100000.00 each could be available over say 6 years.

If he was not interested in coming home, we could advise that we would find out who is and offer them a suitable package for themselves and their family.

We really are the family club.

We have 6 pages on this topic, I wonder how many of the people who have posted will go on Sunday. I think we will be lucky to get 15,000, cold Sunday, 3.10 start live free to air, GWS have no supporters.

I told my family at the end of last season that even if I was on life support, I would want them to take me to this game. I am battling a head cold with no voice at present but pouring the honey and lemon drinks down now as I speak. My husband and daughter (Collingwood supporters) and BF (Essendon supporter) are coming with me and very interested to do so - I didnt have to twist anyones arm to come with me.

I hope we stick it to GWS.

Sheedy has never respected us and feels humiliated that we turned him down for the senior coaching position.

This burned into a hatred of us and need for revenge of some sort which blinded him to get Scully at whatever the cost causing GWS to pay massive overs for good ordinary.

The jokes on Sheedy.

Disagree on motive for Scully. I reckon they wanted the number one pick whoever it was for bragging rights up north...err and a bit west.

This is why people who say we should have gone for Jack T or Martin number one miss the point - Sheeds was after whoever went one.

Agree he's got a gripe with us and maybe the coaching thing stung. I didn't want him but in hindsight Bails did not exactly set us up for great things and maybe Sheeds sees that and it twists the knife.

Whatever! I'd rather we be talked about than not. Go for it you silly old geezer.

.....reminding them that Patton was a MFC supporter....

If there was ever a method for making sure a player never comes to or thrives at the club, then surely it is pointing out he was a MFC supporter as kid.

MFCSS lives.

Don't go to snow, get the best of both worlds MFC supporters!

For one week only, 2 of the worlds greatest downhill skiers will be putting on an exhibition, LIVE on the hallowed MCG turf.

Grab your thermoses, get out the crocheted blankets, jump into the new Rangy, and come and see Brent Moloney and Colin Sylvia carve up some snowflakes, for not one, not two, but maybe even THREE quarters of football!

BE THERRRRRE

Haha Sheedy trying hard to make his plastic club relevant.

Thinks he building a rivalry but forgets Melbourne has been around for 154 years and will pretty soon forget about a bloke who played 30 games.

I don't care who does it, I'd like him to be laid out on the turf at some stage in the game. Just as a reminder of where he came from.

Hoping we belt them.

Also hoping Scully is completely wiped out, even if it's unfairly and our player cops a suspension for it. I want him, and anyone else, to know that if you walk out on us, we will hurt you, and make sure you're never right again.

What I find interesting is the following comment:

The match also has long-term ramifications given GWS has promised to bid for Demons father-son candidate Jack Viney should it finish below Melbourne.

So if GWS finish bottom, they're effectively saying that they rate Jack Viney the number 1 player in the draft and would take him with pick 1.

Very interesting that they can already make this decision when the draft is 5 months away and we are in the middle of the National Championships. Viney must be so far ahead of every other player in the draft that GWS can confidently say in the middle of June that they will take Viney with pick 1 in the draft.

Gee, seems to me to be very early to make such an important decision.

I don't know whether GWS have made such a promise. But if they have it seems to me to be just about the clearest evidence of draft tampering as you could get.

Hope you get well enough to see a good win Jane!

.... is it just me or did other people think you were bringing your husband, daughter and your BF along to the game :blink: (had to read it twice to realise it was the Daughter's BF)

Scully came from the hallowed earth of the MCG? How primordial. Perhaps there's Wurundjeri story or myth that could be applicable. Something to do with Snakes, Suns, earth and karmic retribution

Are people reading a little more into this comment than is actually there? I think that comment is just Jon Ralph rehashing the comments made a couple of months ago where it was mooted that the GWS would make Melb pay the "correct" price for Viney by nominating him, thus making us pay pick 3. It's not a confirmation that it actually is happening I don't believe IMO

    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.

    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.
