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.


Potential club president candidates?



Recommended Posts

I believe the Dees are in need of a change of president, someone in possession of a lot more charisma and influence being my preference for the job. It's obvious the club president has an important role and is an essential part of a good team (Koch's takeover of port and their subsequent re-vitalization being an example of this).

So my question is, Who's an ideal club president? Matt Damon is apparently a dee's fan, as is Ana Ivanovich, could they be the right people for the job? (Since they'd definitely be interested in the position).

Let you into a secret, Redleg is the man for the job. He would get everyone working together and build an inclusive, successful, football club. He would also get rid of the carbon tax and make MFC memberships cheaper.

Well if you become President then Julia Gillard should be the CEO.

Redleg and the Redhead - another mentor/pupil situation and based on the way the country's running at the moment it sounds like a truly Melbournesque combination.

Sorry 'redleg' and 'Jack' but isn't Bob Hawke mister charisma, just what we need to get the factions together. Keating as CEO of the banana republic that is the MFC, get rid of the ridiculous KPI's at the FD and bring in the "J" curve and we're on our way. Will need a succession plan, Eddies has worked as well as Bob's and John's.

Politics of any kind, isn't it a wonderful thing.

A drovers dog could run this club.

We've got double digit failure, and double digit coach replacement.

Next President, Tim Wilson.

Robbie Flower by the length of the straight. However, If wishes were horses & he won't, can we at least have someone who's pleasant to look at.....no offence to Don. My candidate (for our first lady president) is Candice Swanepoel !!!

As you can see she's also a fully fledged Demon already.....

This whole replace the president, replace the CEO, replace the coach, replace the <insert target>, thing has become an absolute YAWN fest! All we see is countless repetition of the same arguments on both sides of the fence and the same agenda driven destabilisation proponents!

Mods, I beg you, please shut this thread down!

Ok, I'll nominate Range Rover and his minions for the board, just so that we can start a whole new raft of threads just like this, calling for their sacking and calling for nominations for their potential replacements.

My vote for club Prez is Barack Hussein Obama as he often likes to quote MLK's rathe famous line 'The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice'. After 6 of the most miserable seasons imaginable we sure know about the long, slow wait.

Maybe Neeldy should pull that one at the Presser this week? Could make for something different for the press to write about, and with Watts out they'll be struggling for a story.

But with what would you replace this thread?

It's time for Garry Lyon to step-up!!!! Seriously!!!

If 'what's his name' can do it for Norf, then Garry can do it for us. He has all the required attributes; football savvy, speaking ability, respect of the football public, connections, a well paid job outside of football and most importantly, BALLS.

If he doesn't step out of the shadows soon, like his mate Jim did when the club was in desperate need, I personally will be signing him off as a downhill skier for ever. (a great player and leader on the football field for the MFC.....but off it....hmmmm.)

Personally I feel he owes the MFC because he has 'talked-it-up' over the years but has baulked at every opportunity to coach or get permanently involved but still claims to know what we need.

When we need a new President, Garry should be it.

Go Dees

    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.
