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.

They got Scully and Patton for nothing though

That's true, but they were still taking up list spots that Hawthorn desperately needed to be utilised by developing the next batch young kids, not some injury prone has beens.  I can see the attraction to Patton, but to have both him and Scully was daft.

Ah SWYL - The Hanging Judge - predictable comments.

Can you provide evidence that his offences deserved jail. No doubt you would have given Liam Jurrah 10 years in the slammer for his indiscretions.

I happen to believe in redemption & 2nd chances. I have no reason to doubt his sincerity & am sorry he retired.

I guess you never stuffed up in your 20's.

I never ended up in a divvy van in the 70’s or 80’s if that’s what you mean 

And I certainly didn’t sexually stalk women

But i was no angel either

If he is truly sorry and recognises the error of his ways then yes it would be worthwhile him speaking to other young men. He has seen both sides of the story so could speak with more authority. He does need to be genuinely remorseful though. It can't be part of some PR rehabilitation exercise.

really? has he?

of course he says he's sorry, i'd be sorry and remorseful if i'd got caught out too

what makes you think he has any idea of how women should be treated

he's the one who first needs some education, not "teaching" others just because he's some sort of celebrity

? % agree

The only reason he stopped doing it, is because he got caught.

Ex crims who have realised the error of their ways often spend time trying to educate younger folk who are susceptible to crime to follow a different path. there is nothing unusual or remarkable about that.

As i said he has to be genuinely remorseful not for being caught but for what he did. i have no idea whether he is or isn't sorry about that and neither do you.

If he has spent the past few months educating himself then perhaps he does know now how women should be treated. Again i don't know.

And i don't remember saying anything about his celebrity making him any more or less wise or knowledgeable. It's neither here nor there. An unknown bloke in the same position could speak to this issue just as well, better perhaps.

Plus the salary cap space, which would not have been insignificant

A shame for mine.  He claims to have genuine regret for his actions. I would have liked to see him become a spokesman & educate young players coming into the system on how to relate to women properly.

Good to see that he's remorseful. On the other hand you can't put him up as an example of someone who could demonstrate to others how to relate to women properly. On exposed form this seems like something he couldn't possibly be capable of doing.

All men can learn from his ill considered actions and women would be better off as a result

    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
