  • 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.


Port Player Smash and Dash

Jarman Impey, and he crashed into 4 cars including teammate Angus Monfries', after they were having an all-day booze up at Gus's house.

Supposedly, his defence will argue Impey is having a hard time dealing with his father's death. I have sympathy for the guy, but it's no excuse for getting behind the wheel when you're blind drunk, crashing into 4 cars, then escaping the scene of a crime by driving erratically and doing burnouts while witnesses pursue you.

Thomas said Impey was one of a few players to have spent the afternoon at Monfries' house, drinking by the pool after training on Saturday morning.

His white Commodore sedan was seen crossing onto the wrong side of the road and crashing into a parked ute, pushing the ute into a Toyota sedan.

The vehicle then continued driving, smashing into a parked Audi sedan and pushing it into a BMW. Monfries' car, the Audi, bore the brunt of the damage.

"They were drinking during the afternoon but it's impossible for me to comment on to what extent that was a factor at seven o'clock," Thomas said. "Given the extent of the damage to the car that he hit, it looked reckless. There was a fair impact as he was leaving. I can only assume he was not driving appropriately.

Geez, real bunch of Einsteins they have down there at the Port Adelaide FC.

And LOL at teammates getting together for a [censored] up after training, and at the house of Angus Monfries of all players!

You'd think after screwing over your new club by missing an entire year of footy due to being a convicted drug cheat might help you learn a thing or two about decision making? What a way to reward the club who gave you another chance to prove yourself.

Culture!

Unlike the Melbourne players who all were sober at Riva on Saturday night at Jack Watts' board shorts company? Come off it.

Going round to a team mates house for a BBQ post training is good culture. I'm sure most players had no more than a few drinks on a Saturday afternoon/evening, pretty standard across all AFL clubs and all of Australia.

That Impey had a few too many and did a bad thing seems far more reflective of him than Port Adelaide.

A few too many!

How many cars did he wipe out?

He must have been right off his box, with a passenger...

"A few drinks," seriously? At an 8 hour party starting at 11am immediately after training? Yeah, his teammates must have been really sober when they let Impey stumble out front with his car keys blind drunk.

As for comparing this to a few players attending a teammate's media launch party? What codswallop.

What does seems increasingly obvious is that Monfries is neither particularly bright nor dedicated to resurrecting his AFL career. Party-boy behaviour like this is an indictment on him after his last few years in the wilderness.

The party – one of several Monfries has recently hosted after a one-year suspension over the Essendon supplements scandal – began on Saturday morning.

As the day wore on, the drinks flowed, music blared and the conversation became increasingly louder.

“It was loud but that is not surprising given the noise that has come from there recently.” Micki Telfer, 31, described hearing a “lot of noise” from the gathering. “It was definitely getting raucous. It started about 11am and continued until about 7pm.

A distressed Monfries was seen on the street inspecting his car with an unidentified friend, who is said to have told a young female neighbour to “get back inside”.

Monfries, who turns 30 in January, was reluctant to explain what happened, ordering The Advertiser away from his property.

Some of Monfries’ neighbours had called police over loud music late at night. One neighbour said he was “absolutely sick of it, as we all live close together. I have called the cops a few times before,” he said. “There have been loads of parties.”

Another neighbour said there had been frequent gatherings at Monfries’ home in the football off-season.

Sounds like a Top Bloke is Mr Monfries...

A $5000 fine and a one match suspension is a very light penalty. 

Anyone who takes out 4 cars in a street and then Bolts the scene is way over any blood alcohol level.

Yet he conveniently reappeared just after the expiry of the legal time window police are allowed to take a blood alcohol sample from a suspect. Stunning coincidence, that one.

a small fine and one week is bugger all if he was as smashed as I would assume he was.

and who does Monfries think he is, P Diddy? might wanna get a kick first (and I don't mean from an in-the-back dive free-kick)

Or did Port squirrel him away?  Maybe it wasn't the alcohol sample that had them all worried?

The accident happened around 7.30 pm.  The club 'located him' after midnight:  http://www.foxsports.com.au/afl/port-adelaide-suspends-jarman-impey-aidyn-johnson-after-crashing-into-four-cars/news-story/533edfd79e3f832d16e8a5512be9ddd1

Extract:  "Impey was drinking with teammates at an afternoon pool party and after the incident didn’t tell police but did contact club officials...Port Adelaide didn’t report Impey to a police station until Sunday morning..."

Shades of Whitfield/GWS.

Port officials have some explaining to do - sounds fishy to me...!

Why is it that this club seems to be in free fall?

If we put all the stories from 2016 about Port together it appears they have some substantial problems.

The good times are well and truly over Kochie lets see how you fix your club.

The amazing coincidences just keep on coming. I never realised how much luck AFL players seem to have when it comes to breaking the law, as if they're constantly being informed on loopholes to weasel out of trouble.

In any event, shouldn't he be done for fleeing the scene of a crime? Would've thought police have long-since closed loopholes relating to this tactic by making the minimum sentence for fleeing a crime as bad as the maximum sentence allowable for drink driving (like Charlie Curnow copping a 4 year driving suspension for refusing a breath test)?

Players must really hate the idea of going to China!

But yeah, there's definitely cultural problems at Port with everything you hear going on. There was clearly something to the Boak/Hartlett rumours, especially when they tried to trade the latter out.

Great news for 17 other clubs vying for Wines' signature at the end of the year. Might be an opportune time for the Vineys to invite the Wines over for Christmas. ;)

    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
