  • 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 staggering thing about the Essendon saga is that the AFl wants us to believe what happened at Essendon was confined to Essendon. What we know for sure is that Mr Danks had previous associations with AFl clubs, and I am led to believe that the ex Geelong Coach, Bomber Thompson, not only used Danks' services at Geelong, but also brought him over to Essendon.

I am not implying Danks and Geelong and Thompson did anything untoward at Geelong, I am implying, however, that Mr Danks did not invent the wheel.

All in all, the AFL has been very keen to not only bury its head in the sand, but very keen to promulgate a culture that encourages this ostrich-like behaviour in the media, hence encouraging fans of AFL to believe the unbelievable,I.E. that there are no drug cheats in the AFL.

Well, speaking about icebergs, it's also unbelievable that what has now been confirmed as a solid drug culture in the Ben Cousins days at West Coast was isolated to West Coast.

It's about time the AFl came clean and stopped this dangerous notion that what happened at Essendon was/is confined to Essendon.

# its about time that every AFL listed player,  & also all payed officials have their hair samples taken, tested & stored for future tests,,, on a monthly basis.

This will keep the footy code clean, from the top down.

The beauty of the decision is I actually believe it is a win for the little guys.

How often when there is a whiff of wrong-doing do the people paid to derail these things, to sweep it under the carpet and keep it away from public consumption win the day and "bad" people get away with their acts of low moral, disgusting practices.

 

Even now Hird is suggesting it was a miscarriage of justice, and journo's that were / are compromised by their false and slanted reporting are wringing their hands and bemoaning how this could have played out the way it did. 

And you're right, dieter the stink over the game is worse than a hot day down at Altona when the seaweed goes off.

 

But me I'm happy. One of my pet "hates" is people in high positions of responsibility shi##ing all over the people they are meant to be taking care of. Thinking they are beyond reproach. I reckon it's a win for the people, even Essendon supporters, who at least now can be rid of that disgusting human being and understand what he did to the club.

With the amount of money at stake within the AFL and its clubs,you can be sure greed and corruption are rife.Essendon is just the tip of the iceberg.If you hooked up Gil and Demetriou to a polygraph and started asking questions,you would have the plot for the next Underbelly series.

Fair enough. I was going from reports on what may have been used and the stuff mentioned wasn't on the banned list until 2012.

What happened at Essendon with supplements is similar to what happened at Melbourne with tanking. To whit, every club was doing it, but eventually one club overdid it and made it impossible for the authorities to pretend "nothing happening here".

This is a very poor analogy.

Melbourne did what many had done before, and what was not and is not against any law or regulation of the AFL.

What EssUndone did was and is contrary to the clearly oft stated rules of the AFL and virtually every sporting body.

Mono, you redefined my comparison so that you could invent a flaw in an analogy I did not make. I made no mention of the comparative legality. My comparison holds up just fine - it is clearly between two entities which were eventually pinged for doing what others had been doing, only more flagrantly.
