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.

Jack Frost is out of contract. If we're trading out Dunn & Garland, then we would need depth upgrade? He would still be a strong defender in the 22 though, injury free. Continuing on with the sibling topic..

Reported yesterday on possible trade for Salem. Not sure if it has been reported elsewhere on Demonland. I hope there is nothing in this.

AFL Trade Rumours: Darling, Salem and Clarke

About as credible as the AFL Trade Whisperer. People create AFL Trade websites and twitter accounts and post some carp, knowing that there are many people out there that need their fix of trade rumours. I should know, I'm one of them.

I don't rate Salem as highly as others here, but if it's to get Todd Marshall I'll spew. Luckily this site is just making up crap.

Wouldn't like it to happen but if a club was to offer a first rounder for Christian I think the club would have to think very hard on it. I love his run and delivery, I guess I do have question marks on his ability to play out a full season and his hunger for the contest. Still, can't see this one happening

It may be the clubs ticket to getting back into the first round this season. Perhaps they see Salem as expendable with Hunt, Melksham, Hibbert and Wagner all capable half backs.

Salem has far more talent than those three, although Hunt offers a point of difference. How bout we trade Melksham instead.

Yeah, I don't see getting back into the first round as being as critical as some on this site seem to. We have our first rounder from this draft and we got him last year and put a year of development into him. Since he is a tall, that was a brilliant move as they typically need far more time to develop. I would rather not see us trading out potentially high end talent that we have put time into for a punt on something new, unless we don't think they will develop further. I don't think that is the case with Salem, I see all sorts of upside when he puts it all together. The thyroid issue is the only thing that bothers me and I'm sure our medical staff are all over that.

Not interested in trading Salem at all. His worth would probably be outside the first round due to the lack of continuity in his career so far, and he has already shown he will be a very good player if he stays on the park.

Exactly, however I would like to see salem play further up the ground and through the midfield. We have some really great half back options and you can even throw in Frosty in that list. But if we have the ability to snap up another potential key position player with this trade then this whole trade period could become interesting with the jesse movement etc. However I'm not interested on restarting with our key positions and putting another 2-3 years into them before they are AFL quality

Why are people surprised re salem? Ive expected him out this year since about round 20. We are lacking currency to make moves and here we have a top 10 pick with obvious quality but injury and occassional form concerns. 

If he was playing for GWS and we were chasing we'd be saying its a done deal.

I'd be surprised.  Salem is exactly the type of high skilled mid we need more of.

In fact, calling it now, will not happen.

My exact thoughts, we have a lot of grunt and developing pace but we lack in the highly skilled area. I think Salem is the right type of player to put development and faith in as I can see him changing games in years to come

We've also been linked to Tom Cutler, who seems a likely type and many Brisbane supporters rate in their best 22.  If we can orchestrate a trade of Dunn for Cutler we should make out like bandits.  Josh Watts and Tom Lamb are likely to come pretty cheaply/free.  

I think Goodwin's priority will be locking in Hogan and the rest of our young guns rather than trying to attract any other name players (Hibberd aside).

You are kidding ?? One man will not control our destiny!! Particularly one with a "Dodgy" kicking action!! 

Nup, trade up and ultra agressively!! No one but no one should be beyond trade!

If we get the mix right AKA Western Bulldogs , we too can win premierships! IMV

    TIGERS PUNT CASEY by KC from Casey

    The afternoon atmosphere at the Swinburne Centre was somewhat surreal as the game between Richmond VFL and the Casey Demons unfolded on what was really a normal work day for most Melburnians. The Yarra Park precinct marched to the rhythm of city life, the trains rolled by, pedestrians walked by with their dogs and the traffic on Punt Road and Brunton Avenue swirled past while inside the arena, a football battle ensued. And what a battle it was? The Tigers came in with a record of two wins f

    It's Game Day and the Demons once again open the round of football with their annual clash against Richmond on ANZAC Eve. The Tigers, coached by former Dees champion and Premiership assistant coach Adem Yze have a plethora of stars missing due to injury but beware the wounded Tiger. The Dees will have to be switched on tonight. A win will keep them in the hunt for the Top 4 whilst a loss could see them fall out of the 8 for the first time since 2020.

    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
