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.


Free Agency Targets - Dan Hannebery


jurrahknife

Recommended Posts

Looking at future free agency targets.

We still for sure need another group of players to complete a solid best 22.

We have money in the cap, What targets and how much money would you throw at your targets?

For Mine, Dan Hannebery is the player we need.

One of the best two way runners in the comp.

One of the toughest in the comp.

Skills certainly improved and are now elite.

What would be people worries/concerns?

Thoughts/comments??

i thought a rumour was out there that he wanted to come back to Victoria?

Just a rumour,

it started because he's selling his house up there and naturally people thought maybe that's because he wanted to move back to VIC, which he has since cleared up

however Sydney won't have cap room to offer him the sort of money he's worth, he's got a good connection with Roosy and Sydney may be tempted by a high pick rather than losing him as a free agent if they can't match the offers so it's worth making an offer i think.

There is a rumour every three months he wants back to vic.

In truth it is (insert various vic club) supporter dreaming this and waking up with soggy pants.

Not sure how much credibility it has but Mark Stevens reported it on AFL Game Day a couple of weeks ago

Let's just hope we can grab one of these 2016 FA's a year early, if the clubs fear losing them as for less compo the following year. Even band 1 compo to Sydney "if" they lost Hannebery wouldnt compare to trades this year, cant see them dropping out of the 4 anytime soon. Go hard Dees

We have the salary cap to make a play for a gun like Hannebery. Wouldn't mind Tom Mitchell either if we could work out a good trade.

I'm reasonably well connected when it comes to Hannebery...

My mail is that he will probably end up in Melbourne, but will sign one more contract with Sydney.

He didn't have much to do with Roos when Roos was Sydney coach. Roos delegated and didn't really have a lot to do with the young players at Sydney, which Hannebery was when Roos was coach. So the "connection" angle is thin, although he no doubt respects him.

And I can tell you for a fact, Hannebery doesn't rate Melbourne - at all. He may end up in the city, but it won't be at the club. That said, he really rates Hogan.

This is the problem and why it is laughable when these true A Grade players keep getting put forward. The fact is we have to get to being a genuine finals contender before genuine A graders will consider us.

We have to do it via the Draft and trying to secure some good B graders eg Bernie Vince before we can even hope to get a Dangerfield or Shiel or Hannaberry.

Why would his guy or anyone of note come to MFC?

Maybe in 2 years time if we start making the 8, otherwise is it over paying for B graders and players who have not had a shot at other clubs.

Same reason Ablett went to Gold Coast, or Judd to Carlton,

they've won a flag and are now looking for a new challenge...

Oh, and lots of...

That came out because he was selling his house in Sydney.

1 + 1 = 3.

Who would have thought you can sell a house in Sydney and buy another one in Sydney?

Apparently not Mark Stevens.

Wowee, controversial username.

RE Hannebery, would love to have him. It might just be the rise of Parker though, but has he dropped off a little in the last couple of years?

He has been killing it this year

Then I hope we have a good crack at him!

Having overlooked him for Blease & Strauss back in 2008, I wonder whether we would have also taken Bennell in front of Hannebery if he was still available at pick 35. Given Barry's appalling record, probably so.

He probably would have been half the player he is now if we did pick him

Us Demons were quite keen on Jack Redden for pick 35 before Brisbane swooped in at pick 25 (see link below). With all the stories about us assuring Rory Sloane that he would be picked here (which I believe from all that has been said on these forums) just makes you scratch your head in bemusement.

Warning: the following link contains a story about our 2008 drafting with "insight" from Barry Prendergast. Read at your own risk!

the demons most pivotal draft day

(sorry for opening old wounds)

Maybe he may think differently in the knowledge that both Brayshaw and Petracca have committed to extensions!

    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

    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.
