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.

I might be in the minority, but Motlop does absolutely nothing for me.  He is a downhill skier who only turns up once every few weeks, and he seems to consistently go missing in the big games or waste his opportunities when he does show up.

I'm not interested in Vardy due to his injury history.  I can see us getting him and he lasts a month of the pre-season before he does a calf injury that seems to last for 8 months.  If we got a first rounder as part of a Hogan trade then I'd like to see us do something a little better than that.

My 'unders' outlook is probably a bit too negative. I think Hogan might be a flop and getting in Gaff, Motlop/Hartlett might be making out like bandits if two players contribute meaningfully to our club for 5 years. I know we should trade him for his potential as a key forward for a decade, but I think he might turn into an average forward that gets too frustrated enough to meaningfully shape a clubs impact on a premiership. Other clubs probably have this view as a fear and might also be loathed to part with #3 and Weller.

Gaff, #12 & McKenzie?

You're not on your own re Motlop. He has the ability to bust a game open but he is wildly inconsistent and as any Cats fan will attest to, he can make the difficult look simple but he can also make the simple look very difficult. I don't think many would be crying into their cereal at the prospect of losing Motlop.

Im high school friends with a Collingwood player and every summer we catch up for beers too. He too will spill anything regarding off season moves and other issues. I could tell you whos currently on 2 strikes at Collingwood. 

Its human nature that players will spill anything especially when your close friends with them. Its just typical aussie mates that talk [censored]. Unfortunately Saty is so delusional that he thinks because players won't tell him anything that then has a net effect on everyone else. 

DD it's ok mate, we all know it's Nayfan Buckley.

Totally agree mate.

Not only that, his ability to do some freakish stuff means that it will encourage teams to pay overs for him, and the Cats walk away looking like winners while another club gets frustrated with his inconsistent performances.

If Fyfe is part of a deal I am extremely concerned about his leg. 

He rebroke it above where he had originally broken his leg and to me that is a massive risk. 

One  would idealy want to see Fyfe play at least a half dozen games before contemplating such a massive deal.

I doubt Freo would entertain either of Fyfe or Neale unless they said they wanted out

With Wise on Motlop, big fan of indigenous players but would need to be 'disciplined' that being said Scott keeps picking him and he is a stckler.

Methinks unless MFC demand an answer from Jesse, or he re signs, we won't see this resolved till next year, can't see Freo being able to offer something to satisfy

 Watched Shane Yarran last few games, He's a goer,goal kicker and tough too. Doubt if he would be interested but should be on our radar if the worst happens

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

Not at all. I awkwardly have a club official calendar for this year which the MFC sent me that has Jeremy Howe in it (can't remember which month). Anyways he left the club a week after I got it.

If we insist on Neale or Fyfe it may be a  reason why Hogan can't decide.  I doubt Freo would bend unless one of them wanted to leave for us.

If Hogan leaves us for a club in rebuild mode, he needs to accept he could be directly responsible for suffocating said club's ability to execute a successful rebuild. A bit like Carlton giving up Josh Kennedy to get Chris Judd. And WA clubs have notorious difficulty signing free agents, so they have to acquire most players via trade. In short, if he goes to Fremantle, it ain't for success and we'll make sure we dent their hopes of rebounding quickly.

Those get locked and printed like 3 months out from the trade period. Probably why Howe was still in it.

That calendar would be made by a company outside of the club and in order to get stock in time they would need to design it well in advance.

Oh, look, the troll is derailing the thread again and making everything about him. How utterly predictable.

Oh, but it's the "pack of bullies!" :rolleyes:

Thinking old mate Saty might need a little holiday.

Exactly my point. It doesn't matter if they are in or not in the club merchandise. The clubs includes them until they sign or leave!

    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.
