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.

Not only is Max not included he, more or less, has Jarrod Witts as the one pushing to get in to the top 8.

Then he goes on to say that the reason Martin was so good was the absence of Ryder and the reason Nik Nat was so good was the fact he played mainly against Blicsavs who rarely plays in the ruck now.

Max had great figures on the weekend against a very good and former AA ruckman in Goldy, the others were playing against part timers and Max would have had 100 taps against that opposition, provided there were that many contests, of course.

It won't take our words to show the football World he is an idiot, his own words condemn him to that.

Seriously, I cannot understand why some get so outraged. It has no bearing on Max’s rucking ability and no bearing on how he is perceived by his teammates or opposition... so what’s the big deal?  An incompetent journalist? It’s not as if a new species has suddenly been discovered; it’s a part of the job description.

There are no words. Does he not have an editor that has to read and check the article? 

That is an embarrassing fail that should never have made print.

I'm not outraged. I find it funny.

I take nothing from the media as being particularly relevant to my well being ;)

HA HA ..... THE AGE!  which planet are you  from?  Herald Sun should buy the age and then sack all the sports journalist they have there.

Maybe Max could be the sports editor .

Yeah but the Robbo would be 'chief football writer' of 2 papers.

Not sure the Australian public is ready for the drunken one to have an even wider reach.

He admitred that it was a mistake and simply forgot to include him.

But how? It would be like forgetting Ben Simmons in NBA Rookie of the Year contention.

Wait... what!?

Is that the level of research and preparation that goes into these articles??

If my boss saw that, I'd be out on the streets by close of business.

 

However... even is he is that shoddy in his preparation, where was his editor in all of this?

So Max does not rate. Mmmmm. 

I guess this is what happens when the media scrum is so large, that it includes and publishes opinions with even LESS common sense than some we see here on Demonland.

He's admitted he made a 'mistake'  However I'm not sure how you could write the article and make that mistake.  

Although I did get a speeding fine at 1am the other day on a road I've driven a million times so I guess it does happen

    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
