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.

I think it will be someone who can play backup ruck so my thought will be Jackson Trengove..... unsure of how to work that in with the riddle though.

Sounds like my inability to fit Westhoff into the riddle.

Maybe of course the riddle is even too difficult for the riddler?

Yep, your right, he will be a free agent next year.  He just doesn't seem like he's been around long enough to be a free agent...

It's not Fyfe. The Riddler replied to a post with Fyfe in it. Pay attention to The Riddler or his traps will [censored] you up. 

your not the riddler are you?

There are only 2 free agents worthwhile next year, imo.  NFyfe & Martin?  So can't see it being a free agent then?

All I've learned from these riddles is that the single biggest industry in the world is knife manufacturing.

lol

I'm not sure what the fixation with knives contributes anyway. You can spread butter with a stick or a piece of cardboard, or just leaving it in the sun ... sun ... Suns ... 

Nah, that won't work either.

don't think anyone was fooled, just a bit of a fun diversion. at least i thought so.

I loved it. Quite enjoy a brainteaser every now and then. I wouldn't be opposed to a who am I riddle of a past player throughout the off season. Could be a fun regular thread whilst waiting for the season to come around

How many RFAs have had their offers matched? if Freo have a similar year, and choose not to match,  they'll get another top 5 pick as compo in a high quality draft year. Not bad for a guy that's had 2 broken legs.

Danger immediately comes to mind

There is zero chancr Freo wont match any offer for fyfe.

Repeating yourself does not make it so.

Some beg to differ. 

Should he have hamstring issues in 2017 and not play many games, or knee soreness or something else related to his leg breaks his best value to Freo may be in FA compo. IF they finish bottom 4 and get round one compo, that gives them, say, pick 4 & 5 (or maybe pick 1 & 2 if they win the spoon) in a strong draft year, not to mention substantial SC relief. Not a bad result, I'd say. Suddenly your zero chance becomes a reasonable possibility. All hypothetical, of course.

Cool

Beg to differ all u want, i dont care. Freo will not let Fyfe walk.

Plus it dosent change the fact that clubs do occasionly have to trade for free agents when they are restricted.

Compelling case... for the third time.

You said Freo would match a RFA offer on Fyfe. How many RFAs have had offers matched?

There's every chance they'd let him go if they got pick 2 or 3 as compo in a strong draft.

The bigger question is 'would he leave for us?'

Danger for a start is an excellent comparison 

No they wont his value (assuming no further major injuries) is still quite high,  even with injuries you'd imagine freo would still offer him a massive contract - see JOM

And probably not - depends on salary cap and what we'd offer. Eg pick and player but i wouldn't think so. Our cap space will be tight moving forwaed youd imagine with our young talent.... but who knows i dont know what our tpp is like. There is a chance but i wouldn't think so... but hey u never know

Either way my point remains Freo wont let Fyfe walk

    MAULED by Whispering Jack

    The writing was on the wall from the very first bounce of the football. The big men went up, Max Gawn more often than not, decisively won the ruck hit out and invariably a Brisbane Lions onballer either won the battle on the ground or halved the contest and they went at it repeatedly until they finally won out. Melbourne managed the first goal from Alex Neal-Bullen but after that the visitors shut out every area of Demon presence around the ground except in the ruck duels. It was a mauling.

    TRAINING: Sunday 7th April 2024

    Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin ventured down in the rain to Gosch's Paddock for the Demon Family Series April School Holiday Open Training session. Not such a good morning, weather wise. As I arrived, it starting raining, settled into watching some Victory players have a kick around. The MFC squad come out as the rain abated, they had wide smiles as the walked down the roped corridor. Plenty of joy from the supporters towards them, kids everywhere, maybe about 500 to a 1000 of us.
