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.

By my reckoning we haven't won a game since he was announced as the new CEO.

Looks like he's lost the players before he's even started.

THIS .. We have lost all 3 games since he was made CEO. 

I have heard that internal people have serious issues with Gary Pert. 

Apparently Peter Jackson had no say in who was going to be our next CEO combined with Josh Mahoney being completely overlooked has seriously ruffled the feathers.  

I have a really uneasy feeling about how this might start to open up old wounds. 

I really hope I'm wrong and this isn't true – but time will tell.

announced 14th June, but the club knew about it prior to the Collingwood game. 

I guess its just coincidence too that since Essendon sacked Mark Neeld their form has completely done a backflip ? ..

Anyway.. like i said.. time will tell.

You can't be serious surely, blaming a bloke that will take over in 4 months as ceo. The players wouldn't give a s**t who the ceo was.

The jungle drums are beating about this...

I have some limited experience with Collingwood when Pert was there and its fair to say the view is he is an ordinary bloke and an even more ordinary administrator. I hope I am wrong but I don't feel good about this appointment.

Thanks for the insight Die Hard Demon. I've unfortunately heard the same things and has created a huge sense of tension and uneasiness internally. I don't care what anyone says, but the fish rots from the head. This has caused an indirect impact on the playing group whether we like it or not. Standby for further news about this which will come out in the media sooner or later.

Are the MFC factions at it again?  Those coteries who are famous for disunity!  If anyone has solid info about Perts appointment causing internal problems, put up or shut up.  The members are restless enough already.

Are there issues with Pert or the way it was handled? What could Pert do to destroy the club? Am just interested that's all as obviously I don't know him personally

I with you Soidee if Coteries anyone try to cause Friction the should all take a hike and take your money with them, we don’t need you, the club is trying to become a successful club overall and any Disunity from groups egos can get lost we don’t need you or your $$. 

Pert is proven to get brilliant commercial results which we desperately need. For a CEO to be in the one role for 11 years normally that brings overall success across the board. Time will tell though.

I'm not at all sure he did mishandle the coaching situation at EFC...subsequent events would say they should have kept with Knights.

Matty Knights wasn't necessarily a bad coach but he was always going to struggle to live up to expectation in the shadow of Sheedy. He just wasn't 'Essendon enough' for their supporters (similar to how we carried on pre PJ about people bleeding red and blue) not experienced enough to take the scrutiny on board that was to come his way.

I think PJ also put his foot in it by talking about only getting people from 'backgrounds of success' but then getting someone with the background I mentioned.

The best coach I reckon for them at the time would have been Neale Daniher. He knew the place, knew how to coach and especially knew how to weather criticism.

I think a few people are being spooked by Pert, because PJ has been so good and a few people are hearing gossip about some problems at Collingwood, which if true you would hope he has learned from. He was there for 11 years and oversaw their transformation, along with Eddie,  to a powerhouse club.

Hopefully he does a great job for us. If he is no good he can be moved on.

I wonder if we may hear anything from PJ or Pert in the near future, probs more so PJ as pert doesn’t take over until October??

Why not both? Surely with the power of 2 we could take down the tyranny that is the AFL!

Yarra Park training and admin base. Near Jolimont station. Lock it in, er, Perty

So putting this on the front page of the Hun killed it.

Taskforce coming back very soon with recommendations. One option building over the AAMI carpark on Gosch's side. 

Either way, likely to have a location for our future base soon.

Who put it on the front page before it needed to be/it was a done deal?

Many thanks for the 'heads-up' Chook. 

If Perty can pull this off in the current climate, he will be our best Secretary / CEO since Jimmy Cardwell.

    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.
