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 would never delist Bugg - he's exactly what we need. And I'd never trade Watts. Vince is still very handy. 

 

 

How do we need a spud that's only a thug? Watts has run out chances he must be put on the table. Vince should retire.

One last time. Watts. Is. Contracted.

Trade can only happen if he wants it to happen. So he 'cant be put on the table'.

The only leverage the club has is threatening to play him in the vfl. This might work with say spencer who is likely to play vfl anyway and might want more opportunity. But with a player of watts' talent it is a bit cutting off your nose to spite your faceish.

A player on the other hand - if contracted and wanting out - can threaten not to try. Which no club wants.

Papers stamped.

Liam Hulett: He had four disposals, four tackles and two inside 50s. Liam didn’t have any impact on the game and went missing for long periods. He didn’t give us a real threat forward of the ball, so it was a disappointing performance from Liam.

I think they were stamped long before this game.  They even tried him down back and that didn't work either.

Oh Mandee...

 

Moonie, coming from Man sfield  my 1st choice for a name on DLand was DeeMan obviously,  unfortunately it was taken. So without really thinking I tried ManDee, it was available so that will do. Now I have Barry Manilow nightmares, yes more than before. Thanks for reminding me. At least "I came and I gave without taking"

PS: I will not kiss you and stop you from shaking.

You can trade a player that's under contract as long as it's not the first year of his contract like JKH, Stretch and Frost can't be traded.

If all parties agree, surely a trade can happen in first year of contract, otherwise it's restraint of trade, eg.Boyd to WB

After today, Trengove and Spencer are gone. Spencer showed nothing. Rather persist with King and bring in Meese as Gawns backup. 

king did nothing either, looks like Pederson will continue to be our second Rickman for a few more years

Think you'll find 2018 might be close to Pedo's last.

If he had to play 20 games next season then I'd agree.  But if he ends up just being a handy depth player, filling a few gaps throughout the season when needed, then we might be able to squeeze an extra year out of him.  He hasn't played as much footy to this point as others have, so he has a little more mileage left in the legs.

Pedo will play most games next year if fit, especially if Spencil leaves. Weid will need to come on suddenly for Pedo to be usurped. Still, stranger things have happened.

If we get Lever that should allow T.McDonald to go forward we probably won't need Pedersen.

Pretty harsh comment on Pedo. 

He has a had a great year! Showed alot of ticker! He gives a consistent contest and holds his own. Would be a coaches favourite. He is only 30 and durable. Great work ethic and versatile!

Pedo is my first picked at the selection table. You know what you are going to get from him.

Just like Daniel Ward and Nathan 'Doggy' Brown when they were playing...

Watching todays game I was impressed with Stretch's game. He has developed his inside game well over the second half of the year at VFL level. He can still make it. JKH and Spencer were woeful unfortunately. I will be surprised if JKH gets another senior game. Magner has had a good year too and if he keeps developing as he should will get his chance next year. Bugg can still offer something but will probably only ever be about top 26, not top 22. Still you need a top 33 to have genuine depth.

I was surprised by Richmonds depth. It's always hard to beat a VFL side that is still alive in the AFL as all the seconds players still hold hope to get a game in the seniors.

They had Conca, Lloyd, Griffiths, Miles and a couple of others. That Morris is a dog. His only skill is smashing into blokes trying to injure them. Sheedy would recall him to his Grand Final side just to go head-hunting.

If you look back you'll see that I've been a big fan of Pedo on here. Got into many a stoush with stuie defending the big fella. 

Cam will be 31 when the 2018 season starts. I'd love him to play for 5 more years, but I don't think longevity is his bag. That was my point.

    TRAINING: Saturday 2nd March 2024

    On the eve of the 2024 Season I ventured down to Gosch's Paddock for one of the final preseason training session before we head up to Sydney to take on the Swans. Here are my observations from the training session. The session was light and despite it being a Saturday was akin to a Monday/Tuesday session following a regular season weekend match as we played on Wednesday night and the boys had a couple of days off after the Practice Match prior to the season proper. Main Squad: May,

    ROUND ZERO by Whispering Jack

    The Coodabeen Champions have called it a day after more than forty years on various radio stations across Melbourne. When the lads chose the theme from the spaghetti western "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" as their signature tune, the game was uncomplicated with little time for scientific strategy. Summertime was for easy living and games of cricket, footy teams assembled in February, played practice matches in March and the season opened in mid-April. In their time, the Coodabeens saw changes

    TRAINING: Tuesday 27th February 2024

    I headed down to Gosch’s Paddock this morning for the Captain’s Run in the lead up to tomorrow night’s practice match against the Blues.  The squad that took the field was indicative of the lineup for that match at Ikon Park.  Likely Selections based on the groupings of players at the Captain's Run today at Gosch's Paddock. Main Group: Gawn, Viney, May, JVR, Lever, Petracca, McVee, Windsor, Billings, Langdon, Bowey, Schache, Rivers, ANB, Fritsch, Sparrow, Chandler, Kozzy,

    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
