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.

Gold coast are rightly arguing that if you rate a guy as being worth 750 k for 5 years you see him as a genuine A grader so pick 6 outright is a fair price, Tigers are weak so they will blink and give up pick 6

Love the new Avatar Abe.

I'll give naming the team a go.

 

B: Hibberd TMac Jetta

HB: Vince OMac Hunt

C: Stretch Jones Salem

HF: Petracca Hogan Watts

F: Garlett Pedo/Weed Kent

R: Gawn Viney Lewis

I: Brayshaw Tyson Frost Melksham

Oliver unlucky but we have plenty of depth with our mids. 

Harmes, Vanders, Bugg, Kennedy and Wagner would be battling it out to make up the next 5. Depends on positions required of course. 

Very similar to what I thought  I added VDB Oliver and Pederson(you put him with Weed)  I left out Stretch Brayshaw and Salem.  Not much in it.  People will have to perform to keep a spot.

What could possibly be holding up the Dunn trade? Token late-round swap shouldn't be too hard to sort out. Unless there's more to it?

Having to deal with Hawthorn, Essendon & Collingwood in the one trade period should be outlawed under the Geneva Convention.

The NAB Trade Radio round up has the Demons in the limelight:-

• Jordan Lewis says Jesse Hogan re-signing at the Demons was a key factor in him joining the club. Lewis today joined the Demons on a three-year deal.

• Pearce Hanley will be a Gold Coast Suns player next season after complicated three-way trade involving Brisbane and Port Adelaide saw him leave the Lions.

• Melbourne defender Lynden Dunn could be playing at the Pies next season with reports today he would officially request a trade to Collingwood.

• Sydney ruckman Toby Nankervis has today officially requested a trade to the Tigers.

• Western Bulldogs defender Joel Hamling is officially a Fremantle player after the two clubs agreed on a trade today.

I think it is all fresh, contracts etc need to be put together, probably tomorrow.

Don't like it at all.  His best is good but lacks something called consistency.

I cant find where but someone somewhere mentioned, once only that I saw, that Westhoff could be in play.  Has anyone else heard this one?

Personally, I would love Tippett. Fills a big hole in our side.

People forget he was having a very good year until he got injured and missed a big chunk of the second half of the season.

Solid player but the cost isn't worth it for us at this stage. Both in terms of his contract and cost at the trade table.

Something seems seriously amiss at the Swans - they are losing players left, right and centre. Has a Horse lost his touch? Whatever the reason I'm loving it.

I heard he and Hannebery had fisty cuffs on Grand Final day. Mitchell was already off before then and now it's simply trying to get Tippett off their books to lessen the squeeze on their cap and return to some sort of team harmony.

On another note, what is Robbo doing over at the Herald Sun with this:-

Bombers preparing O'Meara mega trade

"Essendon is plotting to undermine Hawthorn's pursuit of midfielder Jaeger O'Meara by offering Gold Coast a mega pick deal."

Really? O'Meara has nominated Hawthorn as his preferred destination. The Hawks are said to be close to reaching a deal with the Suns even if it's done through mediation. 

The article smacks of cheerleading by an Essendon supporter who happens to be the chief football writer at the newspaper. Strange indeed.

I'm not so sure. I think just being within 10 metres of Viney might give Tippett concussion.

Some interesting comments on some high profile yet to be finished deals:  http://www.theage.com.au/afl/afl-news/afl-trades-2016-tigers-poised-to-land-dion-prestia-20161018-gs51ll.html

"Negotiations between the Hawks and Suns have been tense throughout the trade period, with Hawthorn now insisting pick 10 is their final offer for O'Meara.  The clubs could go into mediation on Wednesday in an effort to break the deadlock".

Under the deal, Richmond would give the Suns their first pick, as well a future second-round pick...The Tigers would gain Prestia as well as a second-round selection this year, strengthening their position in the coming draft.  So Richmond will end up parting with pick #6!!

I really like that GCS are playing hardball and not get unders for their elite players.  On a smaller scale we did the same with Lewis and seemingly with Hibberd.  Its good that the so called 'power clubs' are not getting away with using their might to crap on smaller clubs.

    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
