Posting Unsubstantiated Rumours on this Website is Strictly Forbidden
  • 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.

I understand the excitement of watching new recruits at this time of the year it infects us all to some extent especially after the crap Dees supporters have been through over the last decade.

However it is that dancing with your sister time of the year.

Lets see how Maynard and others look when the real stuff starts.

Lols at the Fyfe/Parker comparisons.

Srsly guys.

Agree, lets see how he goes at Casey first....not sure he's even played a senior game of footy at any level.

Yes he looks a good prospect but lets not get too carried away.

...baby steps.

That's probably what Geelong supporters said about Mark Blicavs in the 2012 pre-season.

There's 28 in the JLT R1 squad plus Watts, Tyson, Hibberd, Kent, Frost, Pedersen, T.Smith, Jetta ahead of him at least.  That makes 36.  He may become a good player but he has an apprenticeship to serve and there are others like J.Smith who have done that and are more advanced that I want to see.

My wife took the bet fir you  and you owe her $100.

Sorry Red. I bet YOU $100. 

If she did have the bet I would like to wait a few decades to see when you start again. What about $1?

One of the reasons I stopped betting was to avoid disputes over the bet when others lost.?

He's a long way off. He won't get a look in for the first half of the season and if we go as well as we all hope (with some justification) he won't get a look in all year. He needs to look towards putting in a really solid year at Casey and maybe next year. In my humble opinion.

I really like the look of Johnstone from the latest set of recruits.

Maynard should play first 10-12 games in Casey development and then see about slotting into Casey 1sts.

At least 12-24 of development ahead but Yes he is an athlete.

Joel Smith is ready to rock in 2017 and will be knocking on the door for selection by June.

Interesting to see that Maynard is already on the coaches radar from his presser quotes today.
For a player, as a Category B rookie, to have not even played an official VFL game yet, he must've seriously impressed the
hierarchy with his improvement.
For the track watchers, or those that have seen the VFL practice matches, can anyone tell me where he's being primarily playing?

Watched him since day one, like a sponge asking questions,  coaches reckon another who is really coachable

His development on par with Joel Smith, it's not as if he has never played footy, he did TAC cup

Big bodied inside mid, had a good chat to him last Sunday, he said he had gone ok, Plapp agreed so it seems

" Corey Maynard, I keep telling you, he is the one. He is powerful and had a ripping VFL finals. He will be there." - a quote from Dollars... can anyone shed some light on him for me, midfielder? forward? has he got talent? has he got weapons?

He was stiff to get dropped after the GWS game. From memory I think he got 18 touches and a goal on debut which is pretty bloody good.

I think as far as blokes 'having it between the ears' in order to succeed go, Maynard seems to be leaving nothing to chance.

I'm with you, Steve.  I have no idea why he was dropped after that GWS game.  His figures for that game stacked up pretty bloody well I thought.

Will put it down to "development".  The coaches know what they are doing.  I personally have NFI.

I remember watching a VFL game earlier his year, and specifically remember number 48 being a class above, without knowing who 48 was!  Was pleasantly surprised when I found out it was Maynard.  Just hope he can be more than that "too good for VFL, not good enough for AFL" player.  If he can take the required steps to ensure that happens, he's been an astute pick up.

    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
