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.


End of year delistings

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.

Is it just me or did anyone else think that Magner was particularly quiet yesterday?

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.

This does not sound like a rule to me.

The point of the contract is to give the player certainty. I don't think that there is any rule that says a contracted player can be traded without his consent unless it's the first year of the contract.

No player can be traded without their permission, full stop.

It's generally something that is not done, and would be terrible practice, but there is no specific rule against it.

What player would sign a contract immediately before going to another team? They would surely need or at least want to negotiate terms with the team they'll actually be on the list of.

It just doesn't work logically.

He was our top possession getter in the first qtr and kicked a goal from a stoppage.

Went missing with everyone else in the 2nd though. Still learning and will be better after another pre-season, only his second so far.

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.

Who is Magner?

Pardon my ignorance, and it's probably already been explained, but if Garland was to retire, or have his contract paid out via his AFLW role, I assume he is still a listed player, a la Chris Mayne?

Now that all of the MFC commitments for the year are finished we can get some clarity on who will be told they don't have a contract. With some players already posting holiday snaps it must have been difficult for MFC casey players yesterday against a full strength Tiger VFL unit.

In some ways this means the players have their break, return for the B&F and start preparation. Those uncontracted players not renewed will probably be public by Wednesday and the minimum delisting is 3, I think. I cannot help but think Spencers ordinary final series may cost him a 1 year extension and I am not sure he will have suitors unless he already knows his destination and didn't want to get injured.

The silly season is about to begin

No. If he retires, he goes off the list. His salary will probably still be counted in next year's cap though.

Thank you. Six games in the last two years. Personally I'd be hoping he pulls the pin.

Stretch turned 21 on Saturday. Has time on his side and should make it.

The penny has finally dropped. I didn't get what you were all going on about.

I might have meant Maynard, but I think you already know that. We did have a Magner on our list a few years ago I think, but really thats no excuse. I think I might just wander off into the off-season now.

Could Richmond have just saved Trenners from a delisting?

With the Tiges small forward success and following on from the Doggies last year, I reckon there' a chance that our list manager will be rethinking his quota of big men.

At present we have four dinosaur ruckman and only one worth playing - Gawny. Having three back-ups is way too excessive, especially when we showed mid-season that playing a more mobile tapman like Pedo or T-Mac was just as good because of their combativeness on the ground.

So by my reckoning, I can see two of our dinosaur back-ups being delisted - Spencer and Flipper. I know Filipovic has been injured for much of the year but I was more than a tad disappointed in him at training pre-season and just think we can afford only one project tall tapman to back up Gawny and even though King has done very little so far, he looks the part and deserves another year. 

It also leaves us with another spot on our list to go with Kennedy, White and Hulett (confirmed outs) and Lumumba on another planet.

Then we have Kent and Kennedy-Harris, who both could be part of the Gaff and Lever deals.

Even with Maynard and Joel Smith coming on board the true list, we'd still have two picks in the draft, two in the rookie draft and one or two Category B rookies to go.

And that's before a decision on Trenners and Garland - both of whom are fantastic, loyal clubmen who you want around and both make a huge difference at VFL level. If we are desperate for picks at draft, then both could easily be rookied.

    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.
