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.


Max Gawn AA ruckman

Not sure if this one slipped through to the keeper. Max was on TFS recently and based on this reception, there will be many more appearances to come. Fantastic to have a player with his personality and escalating profile at the club.

Maxy must be almost a lock for the AA team now.  Goldstein has dropped away, and even if he hits form again I can see them naming two ruckmen.

But right now Max is the lone AA ruckman.

Do they usually name two rucks?

Not sure how common it is, but our very own Mark Jamar made the AA team on the interchange... I think Sandilands was the ruck from memory

Often, on the basis that the team would be in trouble if the #1 went down during the notional game against Mars, which incidentally is where too many of the footy scribes live.

The club should push Max's cult status, he will ba a fan favourite with the kids and not just Melbourne supporters.

Maybe they should think of handing out "Max Beards" that the kids can attach to their faces during the games.

Great player, great guy and loves the club, what more could you ask for?

Yeah, they should take something that is organically funny and commercialise it to the point that it becomes a cliche and everyone is sick of it..

Yeah you're right, why would we want to commercialise anything about the club just, to try and increase supporters and our financial base, my mistake.

If Max went down this year where would we be?

The media worry about Jesse Hogan.

In Matthew Lloyds rolling All Australian team as the number 1 ruckman.

Lloyd is a sniper and I'm pretty sure I know how he got a commentator's job. He can't do anything else! I'm disappointed to read anyone on here actually quotes him, unless it is himself in disguise!

 

He is clearly AA and it is a disservice to the award if he doesn't get it.

Viney should be there as well.

Unless of course it a Hawks Free

I got to thinking on reading this that Gawn in 2016 is reminding me of Shwartz in 1994. Absolutely and almost ridiculously dominant. I hope we're talking big about Maxxy in 17, 18, 19 , 20 and beyond and not endlessly watching clips of him this season. I will pray for both his knees. 

Im sorry to sound anxious but hey...Im a demon supporter and Im not sure how to handle positive press.

And I love how much he prides wearing the number 11 for big Jimmy.

Gawn is a player of such fitting character to follow in Jimmy's footsteps. ...not like the hoax of a bloke who wore it before big Maxy.

Wow, only 15 times since 1991 have we had a player selected as an AA.

25 years with with approx 550 positions up for grabs, we have netted 15 of them (2.72%). That just makes me sad.

Matthew Pavlich has received almost as many AA slots as the entire Melbourne Football Club during his time in the AFL.

Scott Lucas on SEN went through some stats for this season for the best Ruck and midfielder combo 

1 Max & N Jones 50 clearances

2 Max & Viney 49

3 Max & Tyson 47

next best

Nic Nat & Priddis 42 

seems to point to dominance in the primary function for a ruckman

I know his next milestone game isn't for a couple of seasons but they should definitely have a guard of honour with kids all boarding big beards!

2 things from this year above all else has given me so much enjoyment from football (didn't think I'd be saying those words 3 years ago). First is Jack Watts having a sensational year, the second is Maxy Gawn fulfilling his own prophecy and becoming the number 1 ruckman in the game. Great to have a fantastic player and great character at our club!

    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.

    TRAINING: Sunday 7th April 2024

    Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin ventured down in the rain to Gosch's Paddock for the Demon Family Series April School Holiday Open Training session. Not such a good morning, weather wise. As I arrived, it starting raining, settled into watching some Victory players have a kick around. The MFC squad come out as the rain abated, they had wide smiles as the walked down the roped corridor. Plenty of joy from the supporters towards them, kids everywhere, maybe about 500 to a 1000 of us.
