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.

Obviously we'd have little to no chance of landing him, but I reckon Mark Blicavs is the player we need.

He'd be perfect.

 

Need to get GNF onto it. He was all over Hogans extension...

Dodoro Essendons list manager said on trade radio that Hibberd for 26 seems like a fair trade. Hopefully it gets done day 1 of trade week :)

Unfortunately they just had the Essendon FM on SEN (his name escapes me) and he said that there was still a bit of work to do regarding the Hibberd trade. :(

Of course! Essendon couldn't simply act like normal human beings and take the deal on offer, there will be at least a week of them making unreasonable requests before they accept pick 26. 

i fully expect them to ask for Brayshaw, Hogan, Petracca, Tyson, Salem, Weideman, Gawn, McDonald and Watts before they even consider pick 26. it's just how they roll

It grates on me giving up our best pick to Essendon (for a player who wants to come) & leaving ourselves with nowhere to move in targeting other players (such as a forward/ruck). Maybe he should call them on 'breach of duty of care' or 'breach of contract '?

Have no idea what was actually said, so this is likely COMPLETELY wrong but is there a chance that it is us that would delay the Hibberd trade?

Knowing that we are virtually giving up our only semi decent pick leaving us pretty much done at the trade table this year, perhaps we have asked to wait and see if we can work some magic in order to gather other picks etc?

Use our pick 26 elsewhere but ultimately we end up with a similar pick after trades and only then use the new similar pick for Hibberd?

I reckon that's all talk.  Dodoro said that our second rounder is pretty much spot on, so you would think the Hibberd deal will get done within the first 48 hours of trade week.

It will get done.  Essendon ar just flogs to deal with. Be surprised if its not done by tuesday arvo

Agree, on both counts. We have considerable leverage in this deal. Whilst it would be up to Hibberd to go down the breach of duty of care path surely he might be tempted to if EFC play hard ball and make it difficult to get to the club he has nominated.

EFC have done well to get so many of their banned players back and Wooosha has helped repair the damage to their brand. The optics of making things difficult for Hibberd would not be good and would threaten the gains they have made in terms of their reputation, particualry becasue pick 26  looks more than fair given it lines up with the price we paid for melksahm (though perhaps Micha is correct and we don't to give them the 26 and that is s sticking point - though i thought mahoney had flagged 26 was about right)

I think if we are trying to offload Dunn to Brizzy, we can package him with pick 44 and get 20 or 28 back

Swan basically said that Brisbane would only be taking one experienced defender, Frost.

Looks like Dunn stays with us unless there is interest elsewhere...

Is that what he expects, or what he hopes for?

Maybe the FM's comments in the post below indicate that Melbourne have offered a 3rd round not a 2nd round, hence a bit more work to be done.

Frost is 24 and has played 54 games. Also can't get a game at Collingwood. Hardly experienced. Dunn was VC last year

Makes me happy, I would keep him anyway. He offers a lot more cover and versatility to us than the paltry return we would get for him.

And lets not forget how well he plays in a contract renewal year. Why waste that :).

I have the best news. The biggest. No one has trade news like I do. Other sites have the worst news. The worst. My news is much better than their news. They're liars. It's outrageous. It's hard to believe other sites lie about trades, it's dishonest. Other sites have said that my news is incorrect. WRONG! My news is the truth, and I'll always tell you like it is.

Make trade news great again.

Ask him when we will sign Hogan?

I think part of our deal with Hogan was to help him get his bus liscense so he can drive Contiki buses through Europe from the end of the 2019 season. That and paying for Spanish lessons.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 07 vs Richmond

    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

    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
