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.

Gee, didn't mean to make you cry.

Maybe I'm confused. Must be a different Andrew Gaff I'm thinking of.

I'm talking about the one who won the best and fairest of a grand final team last year, and was his team's best in that grand final. The one who is still only 24, and fills a line-breaking and attacking link role which we are deficient in. 

Which one do you have in mind?

Yes the same one who averages 1 tackle a game. 

He seems great when hes not playing for your team, but ask Eagles fans what they think of him.

I wonder why the non-casey players havn't had their exit interviews yet?

I saw that Viney was in Thailand, maybe a few of them have?

Do they normally do them all together?

I assume you mean end of season interviews?  Those players not in Casey finals would have been completed and we wouldn't expect any delistings there.  

If you asking why we haven't heard any news on exits/delistings, it would be fair to assume that any list changes will come from players currently in the Casey finals.

Not sure that is the case LF. Somewhere on DL I read a post that said the end of season interviews will be held after Casey finish.

I am pretty sure they would do the exit interviews of guys like Jesse right away, obviously he isn't going to play for Casey and his family is in Perth, so i reckon it's probably been done already or is in the next few days

North Melbourne would announce the delistings in the lead up to the next Casey final.

Knowing the form of Norf, they'll probably do a presser tomorrow welcoming the players they are going to draft later in the year and saying goodbye to their 2017 delistings.

Tyson, Petracca, Gawn, Jones and Viney are the five players used in the club's new membership package photos.

Hopefully means nothing but interesting follow-up to Hogan being replaced by Watts on the website's background (remember Howe being removed from the background at the same time last year?)

Just had a look at that pic, looks like Wattsy has had some ink done recently, showing his love for the city! Also didn't realize Jones had tatts of the MCG tower lights on his bicep either!

If he is removed from the membership packages he is gone. Ah well, at least we will be compensated well.

Hmmm, so tell me more about this Nat Fyfe fellow. Don't know much about him.

Hello,

President of the Hawthorn Football League here and I'd just like to clear up a couple of misconceptions you lot may have with regard to some of these trades etc.

Hogan, Fyfe, Fyffe, Gaff, yes, yes all good players I'm sure but I have to make it perfectly clear all trades must be ratified with our board. I repeat ALL trades.

Fyfe and Hogan will be coming across next year and Gaff as soon as he becomes a Hawthorn (sorry I mean free) agent.

We brought in that work experience kid this year O'Meara. Played the old Burgoyne bung knee card there ha,ha,ha.

Anyway back to your little games. I'm working with Fitzy and Gill (terrific chaps, very ameniable to our cause) to let you lot have a cameo appearance in 2018 or 19 in the top four. On the proviso of course that we never leave the top 4. 

Talked about a series of exhibition matches next year (you might call it the Home and Away) before our games start in September.

Anyway toodle pip.

Hrrmm, that is beginning to add up.

Could just be a 'risk' thing. But sad to see the club having to consider the risk in its 2017 marketing.

I'm doing a good job of looking for bright sides. Opens up a space for a forward who can also help in the ruck.

?d&cfs=1&sx=0&sy=0&sw=2048&sh=2048Hopefully it was just a Facebook thing not including them all. I scoured the official website and found packages with a few more players:

And finally, appearing only once under the Armchair membership:

An Armchair membership is the perfect membership for those who want to support the Club but cannot necessarily get to a game.

Gold.

It will be hard to get to a game if he is in Perf. One of our membership team having a laugh methinks.

Yep, hopefully meaningless but it's easy to read into the single use of Jesse's photo here (and the accompanying text).

Would be an almighty coincidence, considering most other player photos are used on 3-4 different memberships.

Realistically they don't know if he's staying or not. I imagine it would be standard operating procedure for membership depts to not use players whose future is in doubt. I don't think it means he's definitely going. But it probably does mean he's not definitely staying. Which I guess we already knew.

If it is to be, that Hogan goes home to Perth. What would be the likely scenario...

What would we reasonably be able to get from Freo in return? 

And how could we, in turn, use this to make us a better team?

ps I want Hogan to stay, but trust the FD to maximise our return should he choose to leave.

Pick 3, 1st round 2017 and a good player 

l would be shattered if we lose him as he is irreplaceable

Not sure we'd get all three, and how keen we'd be on 2017 pick.

Would pick 3 (McCluggage?) and Gaff Neale be a fair return that would improve us as a team?

Yep they probably don't want the situation of having Maloney on the calendar and then being traded before the years even begun.

This will be finished by the middle of October.

It's this black and white - either he signs the 6 years on the table, or he'll be traded.

Club will not not have this crap going on for another 12 months.

Try telling that to GNF.

    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
