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.

Have wanted Tippa for a few years. He and Kossie in the forward line would be absolutely electric.

Wouldnt have so much of a need for a power forward if we had that setup. Our forward 50 options are a gaping chasm in our current list.

Fritta leading up the ground further and delivering into the 50 with Tippa on a lead and Kossie scooping up the crumbs.

Big Footy has a thread that Jordan Clarke is "out of favour" at Geelong. He's definitely been out of the team but that is probably temporary since those geriatrics were the oldest team average age EVER in AFL/VFL history last week at 28y 134d.

Anyway Clarke would go alright at wing/HB for us.  Maybe a trade for Preuss + pick.

walla - along with stringer in particular - started to look very fat in the second half of 2020

still more than capable of performing but he definitely looked portly

6 months under burgess should do the trick

Lachie Hunter - could be on the table, is he an outside/inside mid? if he has that outside skill i would be interested to see if we tried to pursue him (although obviously has some D head factor about him).

 

Were rumours about him being unhappy at Dogs earlier in the year. Can win his own ball , but has played the wing role for Dogs beautifully. Great runner and positions himself really smartly. Would be a really good get to fill our wing spot.

i'm not sure this will be well recieved but a player i think we could get for a good price who'd add to our side is Brodie Smith from the crows, good speed, a good kick and would add a new dimension to our half back line. as well as some experience. i doubt it'd cost us much to get him over and i'm sure he'd be keen to come to a club more likely to contend in finals in the back end of his career.

Huge if true. He did have time off this year for a few reasons, so perhaps he wants out. He'd cost a fortune, but he's elite. Would be perfect for the opposite wing to Langdon. We'd have to offer a future first rounder and hope for the best.

They are desperate for a big bodied ruckman.

Andy Maher spitballing to the former Bulldogs captain.

A little irresponsible for the SEN to misquote their own hosts.

No way Hunter goes anywhere unless the Dogs get at least 1 elite player back. He's probably their 2nd most important player behind Bont.

He was perhaps unhappy earlier in the season. A serious drink driving charge and suspension followed by person leave will do that to you.

True. English has struggled and seems years off having a proper AFL big man body.

Pruess and future first rounder? I'd do it in a heartbeat. Hunter is elite.

How about we stop giving up first rounders. surely we've learnt our lesson. we're nowhere near the premiership window. Especially with Goodwin at the helm.

Yeah but we have no pick this year in a season where there wasn't much to get excited about. So we have to go another season with an unproven pickett and a promising jackson and rivers as our only up and coming players under 20

Lord we know how important a forward is to us given our goals this yr and last so we SHOULD MAKE ROOM for a forward imo.

Time will tell.

All our coin is sunk in TMac. He needs to be moved on somehow but there are no takers. I fear we’re stuck with him.

Not worth a new thread, but Sam Edmund reporting Devon Smith and Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti are unhappy at the Bombers. Would we have a crack at either? Could Smith play on a wing for us? Tippa would be amazing IMO.

 

Tippa would be a great get. Not fussed about Devon Smith.

Is there actually any bombers player happy at the moment?

What lesson? We’ll end up giving up the same pick to get Pickett as the pick we used on Pickett. A similar situation occurred when we traded up a year for Weid.

Trading Hogan for May worked beautifully. If it was pick 10 not pick 6 it would’ve been seen as a huge win.

The only time we’ve truly given up first rounders was for Lever and they weren’t the true high picks. We covered that off with getting plenty of 2nd rounders. We should aim to have a nice 2nd rounder and other useful picks this year. 

If you aren’t excited for Sparrow, JJ, Spargo, Fritsch and Petty then we just haven’t recruited well enough. I’m thinking there’s a bit of talent there we might see shine next year

    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.
