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.

Misson's comments of interest:

* Frost to start running next week!

* Kent in full training next week! Ahead of Vanders and Salem, just needs to get fitness back.

* Petracca has started running fluently. Stated that most guys coming back from ACLs carry a significant limp.

The Gods have finally changed their tune!!

So Frost has actually gone out a week but Grimes has come in six weeks. Can only assume Jack is part gecko and has regenerated his thumb or perhaps it wasn't actually broken in the first place.

Out of all those still injured I think we are missing Salem the most. The kid is all class

Of those still injured I think we are missing the most,

1 Frost plays back - forward- 2nd ruck and can run

2 vandenBerg - run and hardness

3 Salem - class

4 Trengove

5 Petracca

6 Pedersen

7 Newton

Edit: I left out Kent I would have him above Trengrove - sorry

Colin Garland (hand) – test
Jack Grimes (thumb) – test
Jesse Hogan (hamstring) – test
Aaron vandenBerg (hamstring) – 2 weeks
Christian Salem (hamstring) – 3 weeks
Dean Kent (hamstring) – 4 weeks
Sam Frost (toe) – 6 weeks

Looks like we will be near full strength for about the last 7 matches. Unless more injuries happen. Which they will.

WTF Grimes, 9 days ago they said 6-8 weeks... does this mean he is on the cards for the WC game?

My thinking on who we need most (and will play this year)

In order my top 6 are:

1 Hogan - well duh

2 vandenBerg - run and hardness

3/4/5 Salem - class / Garland - as good but different to Salem / Kent - I need to see what others find obvious

6 Frost - Im a Gawn/Spencer 2 ruck kind of guy

+ also said Trengove will have another scan late July to decide when he starts running.

In all seriousness, when was the last time we had a player debut in a final?

Sometime in the roaring twenties would be my guess.

Think we haven't missed Frost all that much as we have good depth with Garland, Dunn, Mcdonald, H etc. Having said that I would have liked to see him getting games and developing.

Don't rate Kent?

Trengoves hard to rate because he is a bit of an unknown same with Petracca.

Interesting comment from the mid season review with Roos - talked really positively about Newton "no doubt he is going to improve a lot..."

1. VandemBerg

2. Salem

3. Frost

4. Kent

Sorry YD I missed Kent, so I do rate him at 4 above Trengove on my list. Nice pick up. I have edited by earlier post. Thanks

I'm pretty sure the roaring twenties was the last time we played finals... or so it feels

Grimes is superhuman. What the hell?

I still think that of all the injured players we miss Kent the most. His replacements up forward leave a lot to be desired.

According to Misson, "Grimesy broke that thumb and he had an operation. He had plates and screws put in, rather than wires, so thats going to dictate that hes able to come back earlier."

Much better than the one they had on the Age website a couple of days ago. On the basis of the latest list we should have a few putting their hands up for a place in the team with a couple more not too far away.

Kent?

vandenBerg?

Look I rate vandenBerg but he's the type of player that everyone praises in his first season saying geee we need more like him and then by his third season he's a list clogger that needs to be delisted. The obvious deficency in his game compared to other demonland whipping boy favourites is his displosal efficency.

vandenBerg 57.1%

Bail 66.7%

McKenzie 77.8%

M. Jones 82.1%

Grimes 88.5%

I think VandenBerg is the real deal.

His presence, pressure and poise at AFL level after an interrupted pre-season has been amazing. Give him a couple of pre-seasons refining his craft and engine under a good development regime (as opposed to Ainsley!) will have him flourish in a Barlow like way... an great find.

I understand what you are saying - we have seen these types before - but VDB for me thus far has shown some extreme influence on a number of occassions, what he has done is not 'flash in the pan' stuff. It might be a bit early but I reckon he's a bit of a goer. The main thing is that he plays with the hard-as-nails attitude that Jones, Vince, Brayshaw, Viney, Dawes, Dunn, McDonald, Hogan and Cross play with.. this is the attitude that takes us to the next level. We have had others in the past with the attitude but not the ability (eg Magner) but I'm thinking vandemon isn't one of these

IMO his kicking was fine during the NAB Cup and first couple of games. It then went pear-shaped.

This tells me he can kick but have no idea why this skill has suddenly (and fingers crossed, temporarily) deserted him

No, that stat doesn't tell you anything.

For one, it's disposal efficiency, not kicking efficiency. So theoretically the low value could be because his handpassing is appalling.

However, as has been done to death on this site, the DE statistic is a waste of space and says very little about a player's ability to dispose of the ball.

    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.

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    DEMONLAND: Good evening, Demon fans and welcome to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast … It’s been a beautiful last day of September and how sweet it is to bring you our coverage of all things that matter about the great Demon resurgence which we’ve seen over the past six or seven months. How our team overcame a turbulent off season and a disappointing start to 2024 on a humid night in Sydney, turned our detractors into believers and then ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    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.
