  • 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

As previously suggested.

Guilty. 2 years less voluntary suspensions. All bans from tomorrow.

I.e about 19 months 

Anyone who wants to put Melksham above decency and justice has a rather warped sense of values I have to admit.

If there are no rules and adherence to them you have anarchy.

Agree with this. The only fair outcome, considering the stalling/lying/cheating/covering up that has occurred.

Little has done a great job at hosing this down, by delaying he has been able to swap out some of the players to reduce the final impact that any penalty will have on the club. They have effectively diminished the punishment significantly.  Now if they get banned for 6-12 months there is a good chance they will finish down low or possibly even bottom of the ladder giving them valuable draft picks in this years draft. So next year with new draftees and new picks and their full list returned they should be in a very good position for next year. All in all I think a lot of essendon supports will be happy with that outcome considering how bad it could have been.

Not if they are found guilty.

The cost to the club from players taking legal action will be a big, big issue, not to mention cost for them.

If found guilty, I believe there should be seismic decisions made against this club.

I would be looking at being disbanded. Just from a role model perspective alone. Not even with a secondary consideration of the AFL.

I do not believe in another consideration.

They will be unbearable if not guilty

Self imposed ban of any media, social or otherwise, at least until the tennis finishes and the pre season starts.

Could care less about Melksham being embroiled with the ban. I want these cheats to pay for what they did and I want Hird nailed to the wall and disgraced.

A 12 month ban for a player we paid through the roof for this past trading period would be a garbage result for the MFC.

For the record:

Verdict: guilty

Sanction: 2 years, backdated to SCN ie Oct 2014.  Further backdating for delays (Fed Court) out of player control ie back to first round of SCN's in June 2014.  Therefore, suspension period expires June 2016 earlier if CAS find other mitigating circumstances.  Players miss 10 to 12 games.

CAS remove Watson's brownlow.

CAS take no action against coaches, management or other support staff.

They simply cannot get allowances for every delay.

Do people really think that a drug case like this would have been decided overnight, even if the records had been produced?

True, we could just add him to the list of others that are currently cashing in, I can think of at least 4.

Most of the delays have been caused by the club or its employees.

Coaches management and staff should be banned for life. Partic. the Doc

I don't think the delays should or will be taken into account given that it was the EFC and players who initiated them.

It would free up a spot for a rookie to be promoted.  Mitch White looked OK in his one game last year.

It's a cold cold night here in Helsinki but a guilty with bans would warm me up :)

    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
