  • 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.


THE SAGA CONTINUES - WADA APPEALS

Essendon players chosen 'at random' for evidence.

Perhaps that's how the good stuff was administered?

Like everyone else I have watched interviews with the country kid, Clayton Oliver and all those other awe struck, innocent 18 year olds living the dream and had forgotten about the murky goings on in this thread.

Back now to the reality of Essendon injecting unknown substances into their players and the fact we have picked one of those players up. Does my head in

This article from Jake Niall discusses the random selection of the players asked to testify (@ CAS's request) http://www.theage.com.au/afl/afl-news/how-and-why-essendon-players-were-called-up-to-hearing-20151125-gl7t2e.html

It looks like the AFL's and player's submission have pushed really hard 'for the players to miss no games', if found guilty.

It would be really interesting to know what position WADA have taken on this.

If 'Dees2014' is reading this, could you shed some light on the WADA response to the AFL submission on penalties ie if they supported, modified or opposed it?

The article says as submissions on penalties have already been made any penalties will be announced at the time of the verdict and if imposed will be effective immediately.

EFC are hoping for verdict pre Xmas but CAS have said they don't know so could be Jan.

Reported in the Hun that Hal Hunter has had a win in getting a ruling sayingthe AFL must share their information pertaining to their investigation into the EFC debacle. The door to multiple players suing the club just opened a little further.

It is a transcript of a Hird ASADA interview I heard on ABC radio.

The report said the will get everything that mentions his name, enough to fill several folders. The one thing that was mentioned that the AFL may appeal to withhold for confidentiality and legal reasons was the transcript of the Hird interview. There is plenty more to come out, including the manifestly inadequate records!

And here's the proof that anyone needed as to how differently CAS operates.. These players were called before CAS...at CAS' bequest.. They simply want at the truth... This IS why Hird , Little and the whole EFC ought to be shltting themselves just at the moment.. The truth WILL out...and then as many others allude...dams bust....law suits by the truckload..

Fanboy media still pushing the no fault schtick !! :rolleyes:

There will be bans fanboys....just believe it !!

Turns out essendon already handed over all docs.

Lawyer cant believe there isn't an employment contract for Dank

Just to clarify, the article doesn't refer to an "employment contract" but "any contracts between Mr Dank and the club".

I'm not sure it's that unusual not to have a contract for these types of services, though. There may have been an exchange of emails or an oral agreement that Dank be paid on an hourly rate or per service (ie, per injection, for example).

I think James dealt in the SMS rather than contracts. This was cutting edge dodgy times.

James had to mask the fact that he was a bog ordinary coach because his followers thought otherwise...

I think its more likely a thought out, cynical effort to distance essedun from future law suits. They will agrue that,as he was not an employee or contractor, that the players should be suing Dank directly, and not the club.

I view every new detail, as being concocted by tbeir filthy lawyers.

"The court is told that within the 12 binders ... on a particular page there is reference to Hal Hunter and the administration of supplements in particular AOD-9604 and thymosin beta-4."

AFL: What did Hal Hunter get injected with?

Turd : No idea, but I can say for sure that it definitely WAS NOT tb4, or AOD

Of course it wasn't. It cures cancer don't you know.

The players should be thankful that Essendon put TB4 on that document and not the REAL name of the drug they used and now can't remember.

    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
