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.


MFC injury list - 2015

My father told me a long time ago AAC that thoroughbreds get injured donkeys run around all there lives with no problems.

Not all donkeys run around all their lives with no problems, this poor lass got hit by a car last week in Addis Ababa (apparently sitting and waiting in vain for first aid to arrive):

How the Fark does a player returning from one hammy go and do his other hammy? Wtf is Misson doing.

he's experiencing failure that's what

we've had half a side out for the whole effing year

there HAS to be something more to it than bad luck

Salem disappointment aside, how long does it take to return from a broken toe?

Frost has been out for nearly 2 months now, throw in Kent (who's hammy was a big one i know), many of our injured players' are not recovering within the appropriate time-frame. This should not be acceptable.

Misson is definitely one who has escaped the blow torch with his performance. If it was Bodhan 'whatever his name' is, demonland would be calling for his head..

Maybe it's time we started looking for a new performance manager.

This is one item that is absolutely impossible to assess from outside the club. Injuries and recovery are such a dynamic thing, there are so many factors that influence them and one of them is just pot luck. Don't know how you could ever say from the outside who was to blame, if anyone. The evidence is only ever circumstantial.

Hell, I'm not even really sure how you'd do it from inside the club unless you were a fitness expert yourself, or obvious gross negligence was at play (which I highly doubt). By hiring another external expert to review it all, I suppose.

Maybe it is impossible to assess Nasher, and maybe it's extremely simplistic of me. Is it too much to expect 'elite' results from our 'elite performance manager'?

No, of course the club should expect elite results from its elite performance manager. But who's to say we're not seeing elite results, and that it's just been bad luck, or other unidentified (from the outside) influences? That's my point.

A small injury list might be indicative of good performance, but a large injury list isn't necessarily indicative of a poor performance.

Our players never tend to return on time.

There's clearly incompetence on some level - whether that's performance management, communication or otherwise remains to be seen.

Our injury list has been fairly average though tbf, though that may be because our true a-graders have so far remained fit.

Everyone was praising Mission for our healthy list in the pre-season, only Petracca and Trengove were on it.

Now we're blaming him for the injuries that our players are getting which every team gets. Before comparing our injury list with St Kilda's one, how about we compare our's to Brisbane or Gold Coasts!

Demonland, where one day you're elite, 150 gamer, gun, saviour of the club and the next you're a list clogger, spud, not a part of the future.

We have first year players missing whole seasons. Players getting repeat injuries which ruin careers (Tapscott, Blease, let's hope not Salem).

How on earth is a player allowed to go so hard on a hamstring injury that they go and injure the other hamstring?

How many of our players have done hamstrings? VandenBerg, Kent, Salem * 2. It's adding up.

Don't get me started on Dawes 4 year old calf injury.

Misson has does a [censored] job for years. I can't remember one season since he has been employed that we have had a good injury run.

The relatively poor injury situation goes back beyond Misson. Maybe 2000 was the last time we had near zero injuries?

I think some blowtorch should go into Mission. This year we seem to have guys who are having repeated hamstring injuries. Not forgetting also Benie Vince and Jeremy Howe who both re injured their hamstrings during the pre season aswell and missed a huge chunk of it.

Well done, now take a deep breath

Errrr....ok?.....random person I have never spoken to before.

Any more hamstring issues this year and Misson will have explaining to do. 6 and counting is a big number

How do people suggest we stop our hamstring injuries?

And what is Mission doing/not doing that is affecting this positively or negatively?

This is a genuine question.

I kind of feel that it is kinda just bad luck, but happy to be proven otherwise. I'm a teacher, not a physiotherapist, sports scientist etc.

Song. Tend to agree but we need some genuine expert input here (not the usual Demonland I know, he said etc stuff)

Could it be that under the new regime the players are pushing themselves harder?

I don't think it's just hammies, to be honest. I think people are more starting to get concerned about the fact that we repeatedly have an extensive injury list full of players with mystery injuries that don't seem to get better in any reasonable period of time.

A timely article by Garry Lyon on injuries:

http://www.theage.com.au/afl/afl-news/afl-injuries-the-hurt-factor-that-no-one-wants-to-talk-about-20150612-ghmghg.html

According to AFL injury list (a few minor changes since publishing):

Brisb 18, Cats 16, Suns 14, Saints 1, Dees 7 (list adjusted for Dawes/JKH in and Garland out), Others 4 to 9

Ours are Garland, Vandenberg, Trengrove, Salem, Petracca, Kent, Frost

I see every reason to be very conservative with their recovery.

If we rush them back players breakdown again sometimes with dire results (Trengrove/Clarke).

Player welfare is also an issue...a quote from Judd this week: "... he recently literally felt nauseous at the thought of having to play sore."

I like that we are looking after our players especially the young guys.

Misson and medics are doing fine!

On the positive side it gives experienced players a chance to show why they should stay on the list and new recruits a chance to get a taste of AFL.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 07 vs Richmond

    It's Game Day and the Demons once again open the round of football with their annual clash against Richmond on ANZAC Eve. The Tigers, coached by former Dees champion and Premiership assistant coach Adem Yze have a plethora of stars missing due to injury but beware the wounded Tiger. The Dees will have to be switched on tonight. A win will keep them in the hunt for the Top 4 whilst a loss could see them fall out of the 8 for the first time since 2020.

    There’s a touch of irony in the fact that Adem Yze played his first game for Melbourne in Round 13, 1995 against the club he now coaches. For that game, he wore the number 44 guernsey and got six touches in a game the team won by 11 points.  The man whose first name was often misspelled, soon changed to the number 13 and it turned out lucky for him. He became a highly revered Demon with a record of 271 games during which his presence was acknowledged by the fans with the chant of “Oozee” wh

    They are out for a run just as it starts raining. It didn't last long, ended up a reasonable session weather wise.  Light duties, BBB, rehab Farris-White, Melky, Salem and Spargo, all with private trainers. They are all playing soccer, huge amount of noise. 36-40 (difficult to get a count) in the main squad, biggest I've seen it in ages. Choco is barking out the orders. Goody has intense body language as he observes. Bowey in a lime green cap (no contact), and in the sim

    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
