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.


The Hird Interviews


rjay

Recommended Posts

If Hird really wanted the truth to come out then he would submit himself to being interviewed by an impartial person.

Of course we never expected this to happen and he has gone to a couple of his greatest apologists.

I get the Robbo connection but can anyone tell me where Holmes comes into the mix? Is she an EFC supporter? Is she close to Hird?

And not in a court of law where the defence can cross-examine and point out his blatant lies and contradictions. He's very considerate, that Jimmy!

In any event,  I've got as much interest in this interview as I have in contracting chlamydia.

So Hird's approach, according to the hun is apparently that "they" (his coaching team -never solely himself, of course) had a "sliding doors" moment in picking the team team to conduct the supplements programme. Their team-of-choice was not available until May, and so they went on to select Mark Robinson and Dank to run it. 

Seems all framed to once again take the responsibility off him and place it at the feet of others. He put the right "process in place", it was others who abused the process.

This guy is an absolute joke. It's just such a shame. Even if he had done the hounorable thing, he sure isn't doing it now. 

The AFL is also a disgrace. It's response to this has shown that it is the puppet of corporate agendas and not, as it once was, the expression of supporter passion and symbol of what positive role sport can play in a society. Thank you, A. Demetriou, for throwing our game into the flames. You [censored] arse hole. 

I would support taking the game back off these pricks. [censored] them.

I want to see this....

Jim & Tracey to sing a duet at the end. They take turns singing verses. Towards the end of the song a  third voice can be heard joining in. Who is it? Jobe walks on with a mic. It's him. Arm in arm, the three sing together. But more voices are heard too. Heppel comes on, Hurley ... all the 34. They finish the song together with a group hug and a rousing chorus.

The song dies away into sudden silence. At one end of the stage is Ben McDevitt. Staring at Hird. No one moves. Great Jim says nothing but holds one hand aloft calling for calm. Then extends the hand to McDevitt. McDevitt rushes forward, seizes it, shakes it, and falls to his knees sobbing.

Jim then calls forward a very special guest. Climbing out of the audience is Dank. Tears are streaming down his cheeks. Hird puts his hand on Dank's forehead and says "begone evil!". Dank falls backwards on to the ground shouting "I'm -- I'm cured! I'm ... good again!"

Then proceed a series of bows and ovations like at the end of a stage show. Tracey presents Jim with a huge bouquet. Everyone's clapping and crying. All looking up at the peaceful benign face of Jim. The haters have lost.

Typical Hird.  It was Robinson & Dank's fault and it was Bomber & Maccas fault that we hired them.

Don't blame me!  Gee, how hard is it to say, 'Yeah I fu)ked up!' .  I say it on a daily basis.  If it weren't for that I don't know how I'd get through my day at work! :)

Macca wasn't even there in 2012!!  He was coach of the Bulldogs.

Hird seems so obsessed by his own imaginings he has lost sight of even the most basic facts!

I'm not going to waste my time either reading the HUN or watching that interview.  But from the above accounts of Hird blaming everyone but himself  I'd say he is paying with fire.  If he alienates someone in the know, that person may blow the whistle and reveal all just to get back at him. Here's hoping.

Agree Sue and once cracks start to appear within the 34 which they inevitably will, we will start to get the details of what really happened.

Maybe when he agrees to be interviewed by a real interviewer and not some orchestrated fluff piece with prearranged soft questions , people might listen.

 

Until then, shut the [censored] up James, you are a parasite and dont belong anywhere near any sport.

James Hird 28th Aug 2013  "There were things that went on that shouldn't have happened last year. As senior coach I have to take some responsibility for what happened and not doing more to stop it."

 

Hird the hypocrite.

is there any one at Essendon he didn't just push under the bus?

That is why he is now friendless (except with lawyers!)

Tim Watson said this week he no longer has contact with Hird.  If Tim has jumped off the band wagon there could hardly be anyone of note left on it.

It would be a diabolical slap in the face to Essendon stalwarts/greats (David Evans, Tim Watson, Jobe Watson, Bomber Thompson et al) if Tanner repeats his invitation to Hird to come back into the fold.

It was Dean Robinson, not Mark Robinson, not that it mattered.

I can't wait to hear Hird speak about the ethical position of coaches who refuse to accept responsibility and are constantly passing the buck.

Do you expect that question to asked WJ?

I have not read it ( I have refuse to now listen or read anything he puts out ) so I guess asking the next question then makes me a hypocrite but does he mention anything about "the Records"

    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
