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.

Well he’s admitted his mistake, I guess that’s better than some of his colleagues. But really, c’mon mate. Proof read your story and get a second pair of eyes over it.

Proof reading doesn’t exist anymore mate. 

Cut backs so the management and share holders get their dividends

ummm....when you have equal firsts, you don't have a second.....you have a third 

still waiting to see if he got 382 / 25 worked out yet

15.28

Maybe he’s telling porkies, there’s a clear 3 under the 2 next to Grundy.

Nic Nat was clearly a 2 before a 3.

Max now has a weekly column for the competition to the Fairfax rag?  That may explain his omission. His 2016 form from a limited sample from afar at the 'G'  v woods and tigers Anzac Eve in succeeding  weeks. Gawn absolutely monstered the opposing rucks and dominated the midfieldbattle like a colossus. Best individual ruck performance I can recall from an AFL ruckman. May his star status be re-ascendant 2018.

Moments before submitting the article. “Sorta feels like the article is missing something...hmmm...nope there’s Kreuzer, it’s not him. There’s Grundy and Martin as well. Hang on a minute...what is 382 divided by 25?”

Ben has assured me that his next article, 'AFL's best forwards' will not name Buddy Franklin in any capacity. It will be followed by 'Best Stadiums' in which Blundstone Arena gets the top gong ahead of Carrara Stadium.

The article on the Age website has been amended to say ...

"By my reckoning, there are currently nine A-grade ruckmen in the competition – Paddy Ryder (reigning All-Australian), Brodie Grundy (coming quickly), Nic Naitanui, Stefan Martin, Aaron Sandilands, Sam Jacobs, Matthew Kreuzer, Max Gawn and Ben McEvoy. "

Ha ha, so Max Gawn not in the top 8 ruckmen in AFL. Now you have got that published why not move onto other sports and see what other insights you can share.

Re-read the article.  Its not overly analytical  and doesnt' rate the ruckmen.  Discusses a few but very superficially and lists the best 9

Which includes Max.

 

Year 10 English Comprehension needed for this post. IMO

Made me laugh, bit like Chris Judd claiming Kreuzer is the third best ruckman in the league...

 

 

Kreuzer is the 3rd best ruckman in the league. He was the dominant ruckman of 2017. He has two bad games due to injury and limited prep and all the sudden Judd is out of line for calling him a top 3 ruck man. Matthew Kreuzer is no joke as a ruckman.

The author edited his original article after it was brought to his attention that Gawn was left out.

Don’t consider Kreuzer to be a joke, but I would not have him in the top 7

    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
