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.

Vandenburg rookied?

We have to de-list VDB and then re-draft him in the Rookie Draft to achieve this.  Other clubs have 2 free swings at him as a De-listed FA and then ahead of us in the RD.   

The players that you consider this strategy for are players on the Senior List that have contracts that you should honour but that you don't really care one way or another about retaining.  You guarantee you'll rookie them if no-one else picks them up.

Many here were suggesting we do this with Hunt two years ago but we because we valued him we retained him on the list. If we value VDB then we should retain him.

Aren't Kennedy and Kent contracted to the end of 2018?

Apart from yesterday's delistings, the other players coming out of contract this year are vandenBerg, King, Vince and Weideman.

I'd expect a year (or two) extension for all four.

Weideman is contracted until the end of 2019.

Thought you had to have 10 years at the club?

Though thought these vet contracts were being phased out?

A 1 yr contract should get Vince to 100 MFC games barring injury.

We'll have the best looking father sons going around.....

Sad end to the career of Trengove. His first few years were great and showed such promise, to the point he was made the youngest AFL captain in AFL history. He was neck and neck with Dustin Martin for the first few years, but then injuries ruined him. Supremely talented player, cross between Jimmy Bartel and James Hird. A friend of mine who's currently an assistant coach of another AFL club said he was viewed by most clubs as one of the best young talents in decades, leadership, skill, bravery, he was the full panache. Shame to see his body let him down and prevent him from fulfilling his potential.

Thanks for all the hard work Trenners. 

Great post. Too easy to forget how damn good he was in 2010 & 2011.

What struck me about Trengove in his early days was his sheer footy intelligence for such a young player. He so often seemed to be in the right spot at the right time, or was able when in heavy traffic to hit up the teammate in space. This stood out in that game against Port in Darwin where he alone out of all the much more experienced players (& coaches) fully grasped the situation at the end of the game. At a stoppage near goal when scores were level, he went third man up to hit it through for a point (both of which you could do at the time) and got us an unlikely win. 

There was another game, I think it was against Essendon, where we had been several goals behind but came back in the third quarter and beginning of the last. Watts had the ball on the wing, kicking into a congested forward line and Trengove timed his lead into space perfectly, then drilled a difficult set shot to put our noses in front. I think Essendon seized back the initiative and won in the end, but just that characteristic of being in the right place at the right time and executing a difficult task at a critical point in the game was just so typical of Trengove in his first & second years.

I always hoped that maybe this level of footy smarts might overcome the constraints of his injury, but those constraints were too great in the end.

Would trengove be rookied?

I think this needs to be a clean break between us, he's not a part of our future. That is now a stone cold (sad) fact. I hope he gets another chance somewhere.

A bit hard to delist Lumumba when he's not even on the list anymore....

The sad thing is that he has been on our list all 2017 but threw in the towel after list closure and left us short.  And some wonder why he is so disliked by many here - I can assure you all it has nothing to do with race  

The definitive definition of list clogger.

Will Garland retire?

Depends entirely on how trades etc pan out.  If there's no categorical need for him to do so for 2018..then he remains. If a spot is required, I'm sure the powers that be will whisper...having padded out his new role of course :rolleyes:

No need to pull the trigger yet.

After the trade season is over he will be delisted. Just putting him on the trade table to see if someone bites.

I don't know why so many people want Vandenberg gone. If fit I think he is in our best 22.

Indeed. Despite being on the sidelines for 2 years, he's one of those project players you keep around for the extra year to see if they can show you again why you initially had faith and selected them above others 2 years earlier. It would be an absolute waste to delist a player who's struggled with injuries. Look at Alex Johnson, Daniel Menzel and Morabito, generously given many years to come good

No way we could get Lever for that. It will take pick 10 plus a very good player or two first round picks.

Re Garland...

Why are so may of the belief that a 29 yo, contracted, KPD would retire??  Has he given any indication that is anything other than committed to rehabbing and getting back to playing?

Those advocating for a us to delist him; I think delisting a contracted, long term servant of the club, after he's missed a season due to serious injury would be unconscionable.

Not delisted but retiring and receiving his full pay.

Colin played 6 games in 16 and obviously none this year due to injury and will be 30 at the start of the next season, coming off a knee reco.

If the club is of the opinion that even fully fit he is not in our best 22, then retiring and maybe playing a year or two at Casey,  combined with coaching, is not unconscionable at all.

It is actually helping him with a future career path.

You don't get full pay upon retirement though... and the career you've worked towards your entire life towards is over.

Yes you do if the parties agree and if not, you are not putting in as much either with less pressure on lifestyle.

All AFL careers end sometime and to get to 30 is pretty good in the AFL.

    It's Game Day and the Demons once again open the round of football with their annual clash against Richmond on ANZAC Eve. The Tigers, coached by former Dees champion and Premiership assistant coach Adem Yze have a plethora of stars missing due to injury but beware the wounded Tiger. The Dees will have to be switched on tonight. A win will keep them in the hunt for the Top 4 whilst a loss could see them fall out of the 8 for the first time since 2020.

    There’s a touch of irony in the fact that Adem Yze played his first game for Melbourne in Round 13, 1995 against the club he now coaches. For that game, he wore the number 44 guernsey and got six touches in a game the team won by 11 points.  The man whose first name was often misspelled, soon changed to the number 13 and it turned out lucky for him. He became a highly revered Demon with a record of 271 games during which his presence was acknowledged by the fans with the chant of “Oozee” wh

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.

    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
