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

If I was Jesse Hogan, I would NOT be signing any long term deal right now with Melbourne.  My last half of the year has reduced my currency.  My kicking has suddenly become unreliable, and horrible at 45m out.  I want to prove that I am worth the bucks they are paying Boyd etc...  If I am to play footy 4000Km from home long term, I want the big bucks.  Any club official or simple supporter who wants to force an answer now is kidding themselves.  This simple supporter, who signs a 10 year mortgage for instance, would accept that bank asking for total repayment in year 9????  FFS.

 

If I was Melbourne, I would be seeing what Freo and WC can offer right now.  Freo has high picks (thanks to GWS refusal for the 2015 McCarthy trade) and the best player in the comp who wants September action soon.

 

It aint that hard is it?  120 pages of BS and unproductive time.

5aa sports show had Caro on this arvo and as they were signing off the chat Stephen Rowe said "Caro, your mission this week is to dig around Nat Fyfe"

To which she replied "Hearing strong talk of him maybe moving to Victoria... In exchange for Hogan... It's seriously gaining momentum"

I can only report what I hear so there you go :cool:

But how do you know he hasn't been offered the contract that "yips free" Hogan would have been offered?

As sensible as your post is, we are all still guessing as to what is happening in the background.

this whole thing has me extremely conflicted.

he has had a bad year, but i am of the firm belief he will be one of the best forwards of the comp.

my first preference would be to keep him but if he needs to go home i want the kitchen sink for him without feeling ripped off.

 

fyfe? i just don't know... yes he was the best player in the league in 2015. but he has now had 2 broken legs. i I am just not confident you can come back from that and have the same athletic level.

 

even if fyfe comes back to his best will I be happy?     if hogan turns out to be carey-esque then the answer is probably no?

 

my biggest concern is the loss of forward power. with watts and weiderman (who needs another year at least) as our leading forwards, then pedo(assuming he is still there) I am not sure there will be enough goals there.

Is Hogan a multi-dimensional mobile tall?  No.  Unlike Boyd, he can't play ruck.  Lynch at the Suns is a better grab, more mobile, and more reliable kick.  Hogan is good for his age, and super strong; but can he be as mobile or multi-positional say as a Roughead?  I don' think so.

 

Pidgeon-holed as a big forward.  Would have done well in the days of Lockett and Dunstall.

 

Lost it with me finally when he told VDB to PO at 3/4 time recently.  A sook and one-dimensional unreliable goal-kicker that we can get dividends for now.

Wow, enlightening. I Hadn't heard that before. And not many have been brave enough to label him with those terms either.

Personally, I'm a huge fan, but see him as a CHF, not a F.F

Fyfe if fit again, would be what I would expect if he moves on. At least you have the nuts to put your rep on the line. Kudos.

Hogan is what I have wanted for decades. He has arrogance, presence, amazing marking and great work rate. He will tear the Comp apart in a few years. 

I would take Fyfe. But anything else we lose and lose big.

The only other place I've read about this is Bigfooty, who's posters are embarrassingly quoting Demonland as the source. 

A poster posting simply "weeks not months" alluding to the time his father has left is disgustingly poor form. 

ET out. 

A big Demonland congratulation on your leadership ET. I'm with you.

28:40 mark of the 3rd qtr replay

Had a terrible quarter with the boot and was probably more angry at himself than VDB... but still not a good look when the team is leading going into 3 qtr time...

Rono, did you consider Jono Brown to be a multi-dimensional tall ?

Mate, Fyfe won the Brownlow last year. He polled 31 votes.

He is the bst player in the country when up and running.  Yes the leg is a worry but if he is cleared and we get him....  oh boy.

Actually GTB, Hogan reminds me of Jono without the full-on intimidation, and reliable kick, ridiculous courage (mark v. Hawks) and fluctuating body-language.  Hogan is better to listen to, if you ignore his left hand.

 

Put Hogan into Brisbane circa 2001-2004, yes, he would have achieved most of what Brown achieved.  Put Luke Breust or Josh Caddy in the red and blue over the past 4 years, and they would have done nothing.

 

 

To answer your question, probably not.  But Brown made up for it with A+'s in other areas I reckon.

Having spent many years trying to build a team I'd personally rather the younger Jesse Hogan. 

Having said that Fyfe is a super player.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 07 vs Richmond

    It's Game Day and the Demons once again open the round of football with their annual clash against Richmond on ANZAC Eve. The Tigers, coached by former Dees champion and Premiership assistant coach Adem Yze have a plethora of stars missing due to injury but beware the wounded Tiger. The Dees will have to be switched on tonight. A win will keep them in the hunt for the Top 4 whilst a loss could see them fall out of the 8 for the first time since 2020.

    There’s a touch of irony in the fact that Adem Yze played his first game for Melbourne in Round 13, 1995 against the club he now coaches. For that game, he wore the number 44 guernsey and got six touches in a game the team won by 11 points.  The man whose first name was often misspelled, soon changed to the number 13 and it turned out lucky for him. He became a highly revered Demon with a record of 271 games during which his presence was acknowledged by the fans with the chant of “Oozee” wh

    They are out for a run just as it starts raining. It didn't last long, ended up a reasonable session weather wise.  Light duties, BBB, rehab Farris-White, Melky, Salem and Spargo, all with private trainers. They are all playing soccer, huge amount of noise. 36-40 (difficult to get a count) in the main squad, biggest I've seen it in ages. Choco is barking out the orders. Goody has intense body language as he observes. Bowey in a lime green cap (no contact), and in the sim

    ICEBREAKER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons have broken the ice for season 2024 with a pulsating come-from-behind victory over Port Melbourne in which it took the lead for the first time at the halfway mark of the final quarter. The game played in mild Autumn conditions in neutral territory at Kinetic Park, Frankston, never reached great heights in standard but it proved gripping in character at the end at the Casey Demons overcame the Borough to win by 15 points after trailing badly early in the second half.  P
