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.

If he's had asthma then it's almost impossible for anyone to comment on his aerobic fitness. It's no wonder he was off the pace according to some on here, if you've ever suffered from it you will know why.

This is true, but reports of him struggling in some running sessions were made before last Monday.

Actually yes.

As those who attended training would attest, Hogan actually smiled ( many times ) and they weren't grimaces. 

I'd also imagine that the fact he has made his contract decision has eased his mind a bit.

Standout observations:

Hogan looks amazingly fit and content.

Petracca has slimmed down remarkably.

Tim Smith regularly outmarked anyone he was up against.

Tyson, Jones, and Watts were standouts.

Ox said on SEN this morning that Trac had shed 6-7 kg. Said he'd be amazed if he didn't win the Brownlow.

Who's role does Smith play?

Are he and Weideman fighting for the same spot? (assuming Hogan and Watts are walk-ups to forward line).

It is not taking a role as such, I reckon Goody wants every player ready to go, so he can pick the 22 fit and in form each week, and fierce competition for spots in that 22, we have coverage everywhere now

Last year Hogan was noticeably heavy, not running as well as he had previously and spent a lot of the time scowling. Saty told me he was fine but I think it's now clear he wasn't. I wouldn't be making comments about his overall happiness but hardly a shock that being fitter and running on top of the ground would have you enjoying training more.

I can recall people saying he was made heavier last year by Misson et al in an effort to combat the heavier defenders.

Obviously this was not of benefit.

Found out what was wrong with Clarry, one of the victims of the asthma/hay fever storm a couple of weeks ago, on medication, trained strongly, highlight his one on one battles with Jonesy

......

Well thank goodness he has survived - truly tragic for those who didn't or who were so severely affected.

Should he be on Clarrytine?

Never seen Hogan smile so much

Further - has he shown any signs of having seen a (set shot) kicking coach?

Goody had them doing a lot of contact work today, most came off complaining of sore forearms, obviously the first serious hitting in a while

Paraphrasing

Me "Goody, they are all whinging anout sore arms"

Goody "Good, it won't do them any harm"

Interesting innovation in tackling drill, they have to hold tennis ball in each hand, so they have to use arms and body and not grab

Agree Hogan is in a really good place.

So is Watts, had a handball drill where player has back turned and has to spin and handball  to one player out of three who isn't holding a ball, with his basketball skills, Watts turned this into comedy routine, particularly when Gus Brayshaw was the 'piggy' resulting in a quick headlock on Watts by Brayshaw

Mitch King is not far off had him rucking against Greg Stafford

I have to work now, got some good pics Including newbies will put them on Instagram and Twitter tonight, any questions feel free

 

Give us a clue about how to find you on Instagram/Twitter please.

How did Trenners go? Has he made it to the main group yet 

I know you don't rate Trenners 'olisik' but maybe you could save it until the season gets going.

Here's hoping some humble pie might be on the table.

I rate him, just disappointed he hasn't come back ready to join the main group when he wasn't coming off an injury at the end of last year

Thanks for the training reports, much appreciated!

Did we ever find out what Oliver's punishment was from the club for his drink driving offence?

you do realise the amount of work that goes into the legs in preseason ?

It would surprise me with what Trengove has gone through over the last 2-3 seasons if he wasn't handled gently.

Different players are loaded differently and I sure that there is a special roadmap for Trengove.

Also  - for the record - Being in the rehab group, running laps, being in the gym only does not necessarily indicate injury. The sports scientists have individually mapped out programs for each player and being in the rehab group could mean nothing more than a light load session.

    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

    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.
