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.

Wouldn't mind De Boer to play across half forward, at the moment we have Kent, Petracca and nobody else.

Plus Brayshaw, Vanders, Kennedy, Harmes, JKH and if there are other options at half back Salem can go forward. De Boer would be the last player I'd recruit. Had a nice career at Freo as a role player but the game has gone passed him and he'd be a list clogger.

Admire De Boer for making the most of his ability but at AFL level he is most definitely Jack Dyer Good Ordinary Footballer ilk.

Mids will rotate through half forward with reduced rotations.

Heard that where into Cameron O'Shea from port Adelaide with saints and the blues in the hunt. Hearing what Mahoney said about our backline today not surprised where into him. Thoughts??

Port supporters can't stand O'Shea. Even more of a whipping boy than Toumpas.

No doubt the biggest missing piece on the list is a 2nd ruck/forward. 

It is a very difficult position to fill, and one Boyd nailed on GF day.

The rest of our list is looking pretty strong, with potentially another half forward to be added, which you can always snare later on from another club.

I think O'Shea was shopped around last year as well, with no interest.

Frustrating player that has brain fades and poor disposal similar to Grimes & Garland.

dont need Tippett. Need something in the middle.

After Hibberd  I cant see us doing much but maybe targeting someone to better our mids stocks. Player mightnt be that A grader everyone wants just someone who betters the overall mix.

Weideman's grandfather was a mean bugger on the ball later on in his career, wonder if it could rub off?

Do you want Weed to be mean, or play on the ball?

He won't play on the ball, but he does attack the contest.

Personally, i would harden him, (although thinking weed might need a year or two under his belt) and Hogan up in the middle if we are going well next year about half way through. The sky is the limit with both these big and mean blokes.

Perish the thought of Perth having good players on their list. They might actually challenge for a change..

Tropiano may be on the move to Subi. Be nice to see them up there for a change. Tigers will get back Kane Mitchell Alec Waterman & De Boer to with their already developing young mids and be pushing for top 4

 Can't find context   Who?

Which is exactly why I question Footscray's interest in Choke. Ubfoftunately he also lacks agility and pace, the hallmark of Beveridge's game. 

Was talking about Todd Marshall.

Reportedly Frost of the Jack variety has agreed to terms with Brisbane pending a deal being done during trade week. 

I know there was a little discussion on him fitting with our needs, no more discussion needed it seems.

Might impact on Dunn depending on if they want a 2nd mature option or not.

It could do, although with the retirement of Merrett they are very light on for decent tall backmen.  They might even want Dunny to play forward as support for Schache and Hipwood.

    TRAINING: Saturday 2nd March 2024

    On the eve of the 2024 Season I ventured down to Gosch's Paddock for one of the final preseason training session before we head up to Sydney to take on the Swans. Here are my observations from the training session. The session was light and despite it being a Saturday was akin to a Monday/Tuesday session following a regular season weekend match as we played on Wednesday night and the boys had a couple of days off after the Practice Match prior to the season proper. Main Squad: May,

    ROUND ZERO by Whispering Jack

    The Coodabeen Champions have called it a day after more than forty years on various radio stations across Melbourne. When the lads chose the theme from the spaghetti western "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" as their signature tune, the game was uncomplicated with little time for scientific strategy. Summertime was for easy living and games of cricket, footy teams assembled in February, played practice matches in March and the season opened in mid-April. In their time, the Coodabeens saw changes

    TRAINING: Tuesday 27th February 2024

    I headed down to Gosch’s Paddock this morning for the Captain’s Run in the lead up to tomorrow night’s practice match against the Blues.  The squad that took the field was indicative of the lineup for that match at Ikon Park.  Likely Selections based on the groupings of players at the Captain's Run today at Gosch's Paddock. Main Group: Gawn, Viney, May, JVR, Lever, Petracca, McVee, Windsor, Billings, Langdon, Bowey, Schache, Rivers, ANB, Fritsch, Sparrow, Chandler, Kozzy,

    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
