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.

Got to protect those endorsement $$$$'s

More spin that the gullible will fall for ... all done to get people thinking that Maria didn't get an unfair advantage. 

I'm not surprised though ... however, I am surprised that tennis actually caught one of their cheats ... more by default than by design, all things considered.

 

Edit: Nike have dropped off but they've had to jump off a few athletes in the more recent past (Armstrong included)

A cardiologist on SEN this morning described it as a dodgy drug that increases stamina. He stated it was performance enhancing.

The same cardiologist rubbised claims she would be using that drug due to her families history of diabetes and a magnesium deficiency. 

Russians and Eastern European athletes have a history of doping with the same drug.

well...there ya have it

With new found time on hands maybe she can pop over to Windy Hill and give a pep-talk !!

Yes she did admit her fault, albeit, sugar coated and made excuses. I don't believe for one second she has been taking meldonium for an illness for the last 10 years. 

Pushing the limits, sounds too familiar. A drug cheat is a drug cheat and I have no sympathy. 

I am with you Ethan. Maria has been taking a PED for years

WADA were to slow on this one

2 years min...

Tennis has been slow with  drug testing and gambling.

They are a classic example of why sporting organisations should not be supervising themselves.

They have a vested interest to find nothing wrong.

I lost interest in large international sport some years ago only to then find my loved AFL was as bad as the rest of them.

The more money involved the more corruption. The only reason I stay involved with AFL is the MFC but I take little notice of games that do not involve the MFC.

Gawd, imagine how much she'd get beaten by Serena if she didn't take it. ^_^

It's so hard to believe these claims about Sharapova. For a start...

The family doctor went rogue.

She was duped.

It was the good meldrumium.

It's not performance enhancing anyway.

She wouldn't take banned drugs ... she's a good Aussie sheila.

She's been set up by the WTA. They need a scalp and she's it.

She is so brave. #standbymaria

To paraphrase another demonlander who was talking about Tiger Woods, youse will know who, all they have to do is drug test Serena. If she's not on anything, it doesn't matter what the others are taking.

From wiki (so it has to be true!) ...

"meldonium “demonstrates an increase in endurance performance of athletes, improved rehabilitation after exercise, protection against stress, and enhanced activations of central nervous system (CNS) functions.”

There's no truth in the rumour that 'meldonium" increases ones ability to "screech" ... however, it is one of Latvia's largest exported products (apparently)

Like the Essendon players she was very careless and like them, she's gawn.

I don't know how careless she was ...

On the other hand, at least she put her hand up.

Good to see the sporting media the world over looking after there own.

"At a sensitive time for the sport, tennis may not be able to show shamed Sharapova much leniency after her failed drugs test."

    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
