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.

I can't believe that the Swans will let this bloke go, for a bit more money. Absolutely ridiculous.

They either delist or trade someone, or convince some players like Buddy , Tippett, McVeigh, Kennedy, Jack, Hanneberry etc, to take a small pay cut.

You don't lose a player like Mitchell.

And they won't.

 

These !st world problems were always going to occur after the great Buddy/Kirt swindle.

Agreed. And Sydney have got a much better premiership window in the next 2-3 years than Hawthorn.

Can you imagine the Swans win the flag, Mitchell wins the Norm Smith and then he leaves. 

Swans will find a way to keep him.

Maybe they don't rate him as highly as those outside the club.

They've got Mills ready to step into the midfield along with Heaney spending more mid time.

They have soooooo many quality mids and young gun mids that I'm FIIK how they can possibly keep them all under the cap along with Buddy and Kurt.

Parker, McVeigh, Jack, Hanners, Kennedy, McGlynn, Heeney, Mills, blah, blah.

McGlynn is 31 and will be gone soon for starters. Ted Richards is retiring.

They have others they can get rid of.

Heeney 2nd year

Mills 1st year 

Hewett, Richards, Papley, Aliir (injured) Marsh (omitted) plus I've missed someone. 

Many games this year they've played between 5 & 7 first year players, and they've stood up. Where as we overpay hacks to come to this club ie Dawes/Lamumba.....

I know it's not exactly the same thing but Ryan O'Keefe won the Norm Smith in 2012 and couldn't get a game in 2014. 

I think Mitchell is a really good player but with the Swans salary cap I'd rather not pay him 650-700k or whatever it will take to keep him and head to the draft for more outside class and maybe another young tall backman. If the Swans can replace McVeigh and Grundy then they'll just keep winning. Now if the Hawks only offer a late first round pick and a fringe player and pay he'll stay for 550k then the Swans should lock him in, but if the cash isn't enough and the Hawks offer a good deal it's a win win.

Are we doing these ridiculous 'hindsight' sort of posts?

Every club misses players. Get over it.

Thanks Nasher.

I'm so sick of people talking about this theme, it's pointless.

They're obviously offering him more than the Swans are.

 

Probably, and it's likely other teams are offering more than the Hawks, that's the point, it's not JUST money he's after.

Money + Wins + Playing Role + Personal Circumstances is the combination for any trade.

The Hawks will be selling him on slightly more cash, similar chance of winning, the chance to be the number 1 inside ball winner in 2018 not stuck in a line behind Kennedy, Parker etc and whatever value there is in living in Melbourne.

Yep, pretty clearly there's more to it than just money, otherwise he'd be off to Gold Coast or Brisbane.

16 disposals, 2 goals 83 af at half time. Next to kennedy granted, but this shows you can't have too many elite inside mids. Certainly would be a deadly combo with viney. If Kennedy isn't ripping the ball out and distrubuting, Mitchell is there to crumb any spill from Kennedy's effort.

    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.
