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.

Just been released - 2 weeks for striking (intentional), low impact. Down to 1 week with an early plea

Casboult got a fine for rough conduct (careless), low impact.

Not sure how these muppets operate

Like muppets, it seems

That's the way Bernie plays, agree with it or not, he won't change. He plays it hard and goes out side the lines but he lets the opposition know he's around.

 

He does play hard, but that particular "incident" was neither hard nor outside the lines.   It was a bicep to the back of the neck....would hardly draw a free for high contact, but the MRP just seem to continue to find new ways of proving their inconsistency and incompetence.  

And I agree that he does need to be very careful - he is being scrutinised.

The club must challenge this. We wont be pushed around.

Absolutely shameful decision

Shameful decision on Bernies behalf yes.

Hope the club does not challange one bit.

There were a few incidents on Saturday where he goes close (and over) the line. He was very lucky last year as they viewed vision but he wasn't cited. They're not accidental. He will hurt you if he can. Not injure but hurt. Make them earn it. I love it. I reckon he was fantastic on Saturday. He's genuine tough, and he's ours. 

And I'm sad he's missing but I wouldn't change him. He's great.

Silver lining: Bernie will come into the side round 3 after some rest.

His previous record cost him here. There was nothing in it, but once your card is marked there isn't anything you can do about it.

Not a leader's bootlace, Bernie. Stupid again. Why do it? You're not being tough. 

If this is all you base leadership criteria on you should probably start following another sport.

Forget about challenging it, how about pulling up the bloke that has a issue of doing it time after time.

Pull your head in Bernie!

mmmm, be careful who you say that to around here...some folks don't take kindly to that talk... effing irresponsible of him.

Is there the possibility that Vince is being instructed to go out and upset a few opposition players? Even at the risk of an occasional suspension

Got what it should have.  Silly from Bernie, but that's who he is.  Don't want him to change.  Take the good with the bad.  

Off the ball, high and intentional.  Don't really care about "impact", as it's not really a good look.  

I always remembered the Hawks during their reign pushing the boundaries.  I think this is one of those cases.  Just simply that Bernie went a little too far.  Take the medicine, move on.

Wright went off for a concussion test afterwards so your claim of ''There was bugger all in it'' just looks silky.

He is a leader FFS and is prone to sniping every now and then.

Copped what he deserved and now we move.

I keep seeing the vision of him giving Membrey a love tap in the back of the head with his bicep but in the reports it says the suspension is for hitting Webster, were there two incidents?

It isn't Membrey. I thought it was at first too because of the arm tatts, but it is actually Wright.

So it seems the 'bicep' incident is the one...

Ah ok now I know why I'm confused, was getting Wright mixed up with Webbster

Why, oh great wise one? What great teachings have you got for us poor, simple weak minded fools.

The only thing I could possibly learn from your post is that you think your better than others.

When you over react like Wright did, of course they're going to see if he was not concussed.

 

Did he return to the field? Yes. Concussed? No.

FMD.

    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
