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.

Joel Smith must be disappointed by the third man up rule. 

Whay sort of body work was he doing? To contest the ruck?

No,  think they see him as a half back, so needs to know how to defend, Max and Pencil worked him over big time, was getting the hang of body positioning by the end of the drill

There were players coming and going all session, Dom Tyson and Kent out early walking laps

JKH in main group along with Filipovic

3 in rehab ANB King and Hannan

Few on light day, Billy Stretch's seemed to consist of leaning on fence chatting to fitness and support staff after a few kicks and handballs   no issue

Interesting chat with Macca, mental side still needs work, Lewis driving this, camp was to test players

Yours or his Saty? I just wondered whether he suggested this to you over the fence.

I managed to get along and take some fairly average photographs that I will upload later tonight.

Overall, it was a fairly causal session with most players in small groups working on specific skills and drills under minimal pressure.

Succinct as always CB.

Any chance you can elaborate on your observations? I always appreciate your take on things

I think everybody's these days RTG, there is never any grey with Macca, no he comes over for a chat before the start of each session, always gives myself and a couple of the other regulars something, today was the mental side of the players, he quoted Lewis at a meeting saying as a playing group we were still 'too nice' when it came to driving each other and setting the bar consistently higher

God I love the Lewis trade. Demand success, every session, every game. If someone is falling short pull them up on it, the "right" way for that person of course. Brilliant! About [censored] time too.

Looking forward to seeing how the forgotten man goes. Hopefully injury free and he gets a good run at it.

Seems to be a pattern developing here with Clarry. Coincidence or are some of the leaders making sure he gets a hard time?

 

Agreed first Vince and now Nev.

Not surprised by this.

Mentally switched on teams dont check out in the final round with a 100+ point flogging. They fight every game to the end.

Pleased Lewis is involved.

Saty, by way of comparison, how did Max King look when he first arrived? Obviously for whatever reason King's career didn't progress, but is Filipovic starting from a similar position?

I hope we are not going to play unsociable football.

Weve taken years to build up an image of being absolute wimps.

Max looked a footballer, he was an accurate goal kicker and had a great leap, just lacked the application methinks, Filipove and Mitch King look to have the application and the skills

I like this - The "Hawthorns" don't allow their teammates any leeway - you want the players driving each other and not allowing each oher to put in half arsed efforts

Saty, think you're mitching & maxing here. One of these max's is a mitch but I can't work out which one.

It's important to match your max's & mitch's so they don't get mixed up.

    TRAINING: Friday 19th April 2024

    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

    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.
