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.

[censored] me Majak is an absolute monster of a specimen. Imagine that running at you at full pace - would definitely need new undies!

here’s hoping that he’s got it together mentally now.  We have had far too many looks like Tarzan, Plays like Jane’s over the years. Fingers crossed for a looks like he ate Tarzan and plays like that too. 
 

 

I think we've seen what he offers. He's no world-beater but he's going to give us some insurance for at least the first month or so.

It's quite possible he doesn't play a game for the Dees, even if he does sign on.

That said, I think it's just sensible short-term recruiting.

Can anyone explain why Angus Brayshaw is now permanently 23cm above the surface of the Earth?

Is this a product of new high altitude training or has he spent too much time on the low-G treadmill?

It's gonna mess with his GPS data for sure.

Because Majak is pushing the earth down behind him.

Really good to see Gus running in boots, maybe round one for him is a good chance. 

Majak really is something, makes every ripped player at the club look like they haven’t touched a weight. We have a good number over experienced coaches at the club now so perhaps with their help we can get something magical out of Majak. Ultimately if we take him on it’s a low risk move.

Does invitation to train offer us first dibs? Is there anything stopping someone offering them a contract, or us offering other club’s train on players one?

Pretty sure when HB was training with us last year we had first dibs.

I have no idea what the rules are but it would be poor form for another club to pinch him from under our nose.

Having said that didn't Freo draft a guy in the middle of a training session with us?

Yes but he proved not up to it. We lost but we won. I don't remember his name; that's how good he was.

I'm so sick of Angus Brayshaw and training reports. He hasn't put on much muscle tone in about 3 years and I don't know why he hasn't pushed harder to play as an inside mid. He seems very content with just being a so-so player on the outside. I sort of hope he secretly requests a trade to a club that gives him the opportunity.  Otherwise, what are we seriously doing here.

I agree with most of that except in the photos on the first page he looks as fit as he ever has, all whilst coming back from a serious injury.

i want to see him running from contest to contest

too often he sits in the space between; the amount of times i've seen him dawdling around the park drives me to distraction

that's what happens when you play an inside mid on the outside.

Ripped doesn't mean aerobic capacity, strength, footy smarts or natural footy ability. Let's see him play.

I can remember when Plugger Locklet decided one season to get "fitter",  lose weight and improve body shape. He became a dud because, although he more than his fair share of footy smarts and ability, it was his weight and strength, not his running, that got him results. Please, do not look at body shape as a marker for performance.

Point well illustrated. On the other end of the spectrum was one Gary William Buckenara. A hardly muscular, bespectacled, pasty nerdy looking bloke with a rather awkward and non athletic looking physique to say the least. But he could also play.

Not saying it does, and never said anything of the sort. I just made an observation of his physique. 

I’ll be honest when I’ve seen him play for North I’ve often felt he hasn’t had a great ability to read the play. Maybe some different minds and a change of location will help him, maybe the club won’t even go with selecting him in the end. Who knows what’s going to happen, but it’s in his hands to prove his worth.

The boots he’s wearing are made using the same technology as the new Maglev high speed trains in China. He should be capable of running at speeds of up to 600kph.

Given the available evidence that may be a valid scientific insight. According Newton’s Third Law of Motion ‘For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction’  As he bestrode Earth he has created space for others hence Angus Air. Which may explain the praise of almost mythic proportion some posters ascribe to Comet Noir’s appearance at Casey Fields.

Majak it appears is a force of nature to be reckoned with.

    OOZEE by The Oracle

    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

    TRAINING: Friday 19th April 2024

    They are out for a run just as it starts raining. 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. Goody has intense body language as he observes. Bowey in a lime green cap (no contact), and in the sim

    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.
