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.

No way he will leave. He is a WA boy through and through, and Freo's next captain. As a professional footballer, his manager would be remiss in his duties if he didn't explore options, but in the interviews I have seen with him he  doesn't seem motivated by money. Perhaps the current status of the Freo list may pose questions for him but not enough to leave.

Freo is an average club with a superiority complex. Unlike the Eagles, they think they are relevant because they get decent crowds and play in Perth (a city that also tries to compensate for its inadequacy). They will go nowhere next year. 

That said, he won't leave.

Heard part of his interview this morning and he said he will explore every opportunity and option, that appears to me as if he is over it ar Freo and is prepared to move. Bernie is a died in the wool SA boy and has said he will go back there when he's finished football, but it didn't stop him from coming to Melbourne.

He's what, 25, enough time to come here play a few years then go home, he seems like a fairly intelligent guy so I'm sure he won't be home sick and probably wouldn't want to play for the Eagles, that might be a bit difficult in a 2 team town.

I think he will leave. To me he does seem the type that wants ultimate success over money. The amount of work he's done to make himself one of the best in the comp. I don't think he's "putting it out there" for the money, he's got heaps, he's already set for life.

Freo better get their act into gear if they want to keep him but I'd say he's a strong chance to leave.

As much as i would love to have him in our team, the amount of $$$ we would have to pay would put too much pressure on the cap for our own future stars.  No harm in inquiring.

 

I don't have insight into how we divvy up our salaries but my inkling is what you have said. Fyfe would get a contract making him in the top 10 paid footballers in the AFL. We will be paying a big sum to Hogan - then we have Jones on a big sum and then with all the rising stars we have  - we assume they will continue their progression and we have to pay to retain. 

Would love him - don't see how we can fit him in..

We should offer up our 2017 picks and see what happens

the problem is not what we offer Freo - its what we have to offer Fyfe in terms of dollars and our cap.

He was their last captain too, until there was a player revolt and they gave it to Mundy.

A revolt against him?  Why?  Not a team man?  Should a prospective suitor be concerned?

Not sure if there is a thread about this so sorry if there is.

Exploring his free agency options and wants to see what Lyon has planned for the future.

Can't see him leaving but success and money talk. Should we go hard for this guy? After Tom and Oscar have signed on the addition of Hurley would be such a bonus but now it's not desperate because Tmac is still at the club...

 

Thoughts??

We are obliged to try for this player. We will be increasingly considered an option for players like this and if the deal suits, who knows ??? Go for it !!!!!!

Have a quick Google - he was pencilled in as the next captain right across the footy world, but I thought there had been some internal stuff which meant that he didn't get it. I could be remembering incorrectly!

Care to elaborate on Perth's 'inadequacies'?

Next Captain? I don't think that'll be the case at all. Everyone thought he was a shoe-in for it last year but Mundy took it on.

I think Fyfe passed on it for a reason. He's not as heavily invested in Fremantle as people may think.

    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
