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.


The Jesse Hogan Panic Room - all contract talk here

Why doesnt the media just say his dad is ill and this is what Hogan has to weigh up about going home or not. Yes I know its a private family matter but when people like Damo on radio today say there is a private family matter or something along those lines people are going to speculate.

By the way how do people know on this forum his dad is ill? 

Anyway who knows whats going to happen. If there is this much speculation now about him imagine what it will be like during next season if we still have him.

The good aspect to this is that, if Hogan does decide to go back to WA, both WA sides are red hot into him.

As anyone knows with an auction, all you need is two potential purchasers that really want to win the auction and it's game on.

That said, I desperately hope he re-signs with the MFC. We need him.

You cannot be serious? The worst case scenario? That would be him leaving. 

If he chooses to exercise his right to honour the last year of his contract, as is his right, do you honestly believe the club will trade him this year to enure they get a primo deal? Of course they won't. Because it would be stupid and the current fd is not stupid.

The worst case scenario is him staying on un-contracted, and then leaving at the end of next year. We all know we've been burnt by players doing this before and just look at the media circus around it this year - that is going to get much, much worse if he sticks around un-contracted, and it's not something Goodwin would want to be dealing with in his first year as coach.

Do you remember what the general public reaction was when Dayne Beams went home because his dad had cancer? A lot of uninformed people giving certified references on the character of someone they've never met.

Jake Niall on the couch said he thought he would stay. I gathered they know about his father but respectfully didn't go into it. 

I think those stirring the trade pot ( weagles or whoever) in this case need to back off. He has enough pressure with his fathers situation.

All-Australian Jeremy McGovern? You've got some weird opinions on players Adam.

Would I rather a top midfielder or a top forward for Jesse Hogan or a gun backman? The former.

Would be a gun CHF 'AF', only went back because they had no one else at the time.

I remember his early games forward, strong hands (still) & long 50 metre + goals...

Watching footy classified. Both Caro and Barrett both of the opinion Jesse is all but gone. Can't stand either of them and they couldn't back it up with any substance. 

Lloyd was not sure  

Also spoke about the WA clubs being interested in Hill, McCarthy and Lobb. Not sure how they will be able to put trades together for all these blokes.

Classified pretty adamant he's off.

 

On the Couch sure he's staying.

 

Hutchy says take Lobb over Hogan. Ha! Ahaha ha. Ha.

 

"Lobb could be the best player in the competition".

 

Ahahahahahaha.

They're headline chasers on Channel 9. Always have been. They will always take the more drastic stance as it keeps fuelling the fire and ensuring they have a discussion point for next week. If the line is he's staying, there's nothing to talk about.

Missed the FYFE segment on Classlessness, anyone know what he said? Apparently he's still giving ambiguous answers to questions about his future from the lead in. If so, then we should headhunt him.

He's a free agent end of next season and has previously stated said he will explore his options in free agency before making a decision.

I didn't see the segment but I'm guessing he just reiterated something similar to this.

Did you actually read the article?  His point is rather more complex than telling rape victims to grow up as the headline implies.  It's also dead right.

Surely they could show more respect to his family matter than going on about it on every single TV show during a very difficult time for Jesse, 

If it were me i'd refuse to go to the WCE simply because they've shown so little respect in stirring this up at a really bad time for him.

After reading these 104 pages of speculation I'm no clearer if he is staying or going. To be honest i dont really care. Players come and go. Dont get me wrong, we need alot of compensation if indeed he does jump ship for whatever reason. I have faith in our list management dept.

When we get into big finals it's very useful to have match-winners who can turn the game by their own actions.  We've seen it already with Cameron and Bontempelli, and of course there's Franklin and Dangerfield.

They are rare beasts but Hogan can be one of them.  When I look at our list I see a lot of talent coming through but few game breakers.  In the right circumstance big Max could do it, maybe Petracca can grow into this, Jayden Hunt is another slim possibility.  That's why it's very desirable to retain Jesse.

He has yet to show me even a glimpse that he can be a game breaker has a lot of work to do and it starts by losing the attitude but then a lot of demons supporters just wish it to be.

    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.

    DEMONLAND: Good evening, Demon fans and welcome to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast … It’s been a beautiful last day of September and how sweet it is to bring you our coverage of all things that matter about the great Demon resurgence which we’ve seen over the past six or seven months.

    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.
