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.

As the consensus seems to be #3 and a player if Hogan was to leave. What would we do with #3 ?

This is the problem. Going by recent phantom drafts, would be Weller and ainsworth for Hogan

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.

Gold (and Brown ) :)

As  to Hogans no show on paraphernalia, might just be sensible caution. No money wasted if goes, none if stays.

I'd take this years first round pick and Apeness and next years first round pick from Fremantle. Weller and Neale won't be traded, both re-signed recently.

I think Weller signed an extension late last year. He also got a rising star nomination this season. Freo would be loathed to give him up considering their aging midfield. Perhaps Hogan has decided to go back home and the clubs cannot work out a suitable deal, hence the silence. They may be trying to give us someone like Barlow and second/third round pick. Apeness is another injury worry.

I would say it's far more likely that Hogan just hasn't made up his mind, if Hogan had told Freo he wants to go there it would be all over the press, Freo are desperate for something to sell to their members after this year.

Good, as I don't want him anyway.  Not part of our best 25 going forward.

If for genuine family reasons it may be in the best interest to keep it low key. Freo may be desperate but they also have to pay big for Hogan. Two edged sword for them. And if there is a stalemate as I said previously there may be a chance of another club swooping in.

Any of;

Straight swap for Fyfe.

Pick 3 & Weller or

Pick 12 & Gaff

I'd prefer to keep Hogan but ...

How about 12 + Darling from West Coast and turn 12 into Tom Mitchell (might have to include a swap of next year's 1st rounders with Sydney) or Hamish Hartlett.

Darling has had his issues but he can play and Hogan would be a serious upgrade for him at WC and he'd be redundant there.

Hogan for Darling + Mitchell or Darling + Hartlett

I think if we added Darling, Mitchell, Hibberd and Melksham with Hogan out we'd mean serious business next year.

Darling is a squib. He's ok as a second or third tall.

For some perverse reason I've read much of this thread.

Kind of embarrassing the comments that come from grown men probably in their 50s or 60s. Many seem to have the emotional maturity of 10 year olds.

They post so often I wonder if there is anything else going on in their lives.

This site will probably go the same way as Demonology if the current situation continues.

Excellent post.

Only problem is that most great full forwards tend to have 'me me' personalities, and we desperately need the services of one.

 

Most of those me me type personalities are more suited to strong clubs with rock solid cultures. They can keep them in line.

If Darling is a squib then so is Cam Pedersen.  

I don't think one poor effort at a contest should shape opinion on the player.  If there was any prevailing view that Darling was a squib prior to the Bulldogs game, I'd not heard it.

Not just the one contest, he often plays for frees, throwing his head back when tackled.  If the suggestion was to recruit him as a replacement for Hogan, I don't think it's a good one.

Recruiting almost anyone to replace Hogan is a bad idea. Need to keep him.

Isn't that just a standard issue requirement for West Coast players?

After Darling's last 2 finals, I'd steer clear.

One could make the same accusation for Hogan. Plays for frees more often than not. Darling copped a lot of flak in last seasons GF. There were a couple of squibbish moments there.

During the game vs Bulldogs when the game was on the line he was playing for frees, mostly by throwing his head back when tackled and falling to the ground. It stopped any chance he had of a second effort and Bulldogs would run away with the ball. Not interested in players like this at all. He would struggle playing as the main forward.

Darling, Weideman and Watts - there is no "main" forward.  He's had some issues like I acknowledged but they could be addressed.  He wouldn't be a possible trade option if he was perfect.  I'm not suggesting he's a direct replacement for Hogan, pick 12 is in the deal.

Personally I'd rather pick 3 and Apeness and next years first round pick. If Fremantle want Hogan, he won't be cheap. One pick and a player isn't enough.

    OOZEE by The Oracle

    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

    TRAINING: Friday 19th April 2024

    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

    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.
