Posting Unsubstantiated Rumours on this Website is Strictly Forbidden
  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    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 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

The report said Pedersen fractured AND broke his wrist. Don't think I've heard that happening before.

I reckon he has done enough to earn another season on the list too.

Obviously this means we have two forced changes, with Dawes the likely in for Pedersen but not sure who they swap for Grimes. Could Harmes possibly get promoted at some stage?

Not trying to be clever Wiseblood, but fractured and broken are exactly the same. Bad luck for Cam.

Considering he'll be out for about 6 weeks and will then have to return via Casey, i wonder if Grimes has played his last match for Melbourne?

Apparently your not allowed to say that. I suggested as much after not being selected for the QB game. Not sure how he's considered a first choice player. How much is left on his contract could go a long way to determining his future. Feel free to hang on.

Of course you're allowed to say that, but you'll just get shouted down by the sensible people who actually have watched his progress this year and noted how much more value he is providing.

It isn't that hard to see, and there is absolutely no way he is being delisted this year (and I don't even know if he is out of contract).

Strewth are we cursed? Play a game loose 2, play a game loose 2 more. At this rate we won't be able to field a side. What shytes me is this not a one off, it happens year on year. We don't have depth so we seem to be always playing at around 60% of our potential. No wonder we struggle to get off the bottom rungs.

And what has Hunt done? The kid has been injured for two years.

I feel really bad for Grimes. I've rated his performances since he came back into the side (didn't deserve to be dropped IMO). I also feel bad for Pedersen, although he was poor on the weekend I've liked his endeavour and his work in conjunction with Hogan.

As has been said, the continued growing of the injury list has multiple negative effects - we don't get to have the players consistently playing together, which for us is hugely important (also why it doesn't hurt Geelong as much, as they've still got their core players who know each other back to front). Roos made the point on the weekend that we still don't function as a team 100% of the game, and that's not going to improve if we keep having key players get into form and then disappear from the side due to injury. We also have to swap players around into different positions to cover for the gaps, which doesn't help their personal development.

Hes contracted until next year. The problem for mine is people are saying things like "starting to show something".....what...now? He was drafted in 2007. I don't need to hear the excuses I've heard them all before.

Well Watts and Toumpas are "starting to show something" aren't they? You are clearly a fan of instant pudding and two minute noodles.

Stkilda at 3 makes me feel a whole lot better about last weekends game, they must be pretty [censored] if that's close to the best they've got

they are average mate and if we had a full team in we'd [censored] 'em!!

Hate to say this, but Grimes' injury sounds similar to Dawes' injury, which still doesn't seem to have healed properly as it's probably what messes up his marking.

And Pedersen's injury sounds like a Galeazzi fracture dislocation, which is a nasty injury.

It's absolutely essential to get the right treatment from the start for both these injuries. They've both had surgery already and it sounds like they're in very good hands.

(these are just guesses from the information we've got so far, I don't have any inside knowledge)

It sucks but the injury list could be worse in terms of who is injured. I won't jinx it by giving examples, but it could be a LOT worse. The Giants just lost their first choice ruckman, FB and CHB in one hit. Gold Coast barely have enough players to field a side.

Grimes is a real shame though as he was building into some decent form.

Also, we brought Cross & Lumumba in to be part of the midfield, and because of injuries we're having to play them as full-time defenders.

    SCRUTINY & RESILIENCE by Whispering Jack

    If the week when preseason training melds into scratch matches with other clubs, is the first marker for the beginning of a new season, then this has certainly been a torrid opener for the Melbourne Football Club in its campaign to remain a leading AFL premiership contender in 2024. The Demons were already under enormous scrutiny from the media and football’s fan base (including their own) after consecutive straight-sets finals exits, with Clayton Oliver’s well documented woes, the Joel Smi
