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.

Great report DM. Funny you mention about Oscar Mac because pretty sure i read somewhere that he is actually 198cm tall now and had a bit of a growth spurt when he arrived at the club. Next time if anyone can get a chance of oscar standing next to his brother he actually towers him a bit lol.

I noticed the height difference in a photo that appeared on Instagram just after TMac returned from overseas. Oscar looked a lot taller (certainly more than 2cm taller) but I couldn't be sure because it could easily have been explained by the camera angle or the way the two were standing.

If he has indeed grown to the 198cm mark and given he was recruited as a forward who can also play ruck (noted he's training with both backs and forwards), I wonder whether the fact that we have Oscar and Max King coming through the ranks would mean we are less likely to be looking at Sam Weideman or Harry McKay in the draft?

[That's not to say that I'm necessarily comparing these players on ability or potential]

I'm told they started this cricket game at 10am, Hogan won the toss and elected to bat. Much to the frustration of the others, he was still there at stumps.

There's NOTHING he's not good at.

Declaring?

Re-watched our last game of this year against GWS and the commentary team suggested Hogan's run up approach to goal was 'setup like he was going to kick on his left' - which could explain the stuttering approach as he walks in to manipulate himself to kick on his right.

kick left footed

throw left armed

bowl left handed

tennis left handed

write left handed

golf right handed

bat right handed

2 hands - right

1 hand/leg - left

Dad - Right handed in everything

Brother - Right handed - cricket & golf, handball and boucing ball - left handed

Me - Right handed - cricket and golf - left handed - handball and bouncing ball - right handed.

Have no idea how that came about!

Any word on how Trengove is traveling?

Apparently a right footer, but throws left handed, bats right handed with an average of 42 and plays golf as a leftie with a handicap of a sore ankle. Cuts the Christmas cake with both hands on the knife. That should just about cover it.

Not sure about training but good to see a few of the boys getting together to play some backyard cricket once the serious stuff finished.

Oscar behind the stumps, Jesse batting, vanders, JKH and Salem all fielding and I think Petracca bowling (out of shot). Pic by Gus Brayshaw.

OMG Is Jesse wearing a West Coast jumper?????

Was he smiling???

when one bats one uses both hands, so it is neither left or right handed

rather it is more a case of left sided or right sided

interesting note. ambidextrous literally means both sides right handed (dexter being the right hand, with sinister being the left)

ambilevous means both sides left handed and is generally meant in a demeaning manner such as clumsy. there is also the term ambisinistrous

Get your hand off it.

    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
