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.

Cerra was coming if they could get it done. There was much confidence they could. They couldn't. So he isn't.

Thanks for the intel

do you mean we couldn’t agree personal terms with him or compensation with Freo?

I would’ve deeply enjoyed giving Peter Bell the Dodoro treatment. Especially after his nonsense with Hogan. But it would’ve been really unfair for Cerra knowing he might end up in the draft, and it would’ve opened up our list for poaching.

The Hawks going all in on Wingard and forcing out a good young player in Burton was the best case result and hardly guaranteed

We need Casey players.

We had a blessed run with injury this year and are cutting a lot of depth.

Jones, Jetta, Vanders, Lockhart and potentially Melksham. All of them got a bit of game time this year and were ready if needed.

I was happy that all these players were there for depth this year and likewise happy that we are moving them on now.

The weird thing is that with Brayshaw, Harmes, Jordon and Sparrow all being best 22 (or 23) we are actually light on for inside bulls at Casey!

We will also want to draft a young kpf and young ruck at some point soon.

Agree. And allows us to go for inside mids down the order who might be a little bit of smokey. Like Howes and Knevitts who are bigger bodies and have no real exposed form and see what happens. If they dont come on, so be it.

Carlton looms as one potential candidate for Lewis Young as it searches for key position depth. 

The Blues have also been linked to a possible play for West Coast's Jarrod Brander.

With Cerra and Hewitt, it looks like Carlton will get every player changing clubs in the AFL.

The Brown paper visy bags must be working overtime!

all in the same year as they re-sign Cripps and McKay long term and with Walsh due to be signed on again. 

they're either doing something very very dodgey, or noone else is getting more than rookie wage.

A decade of rebuilding has meant that I'm programmed to check this forum every day for news at this time of year.

We all know that we are going to do sweet f&$# all this year but are all still here.

I hate being a creature of habit.

How ordinary are the delisted senior players across the competition? I'm glad we won the flag and don't require a lot of pieces to go again. There's not a great deal on the market.

Apologies ‘Chook’, I initially thought this was a joke post in vein of “make no mistake, he was going to play for us if he signed a contract with us, but he didn’t so he won’t (play for us).” Keep the rumours and riddles coming!

Don't know if already mentioned, but Gold Coast are in a world of hurt. Rumour is they have severe salary cap issues, despite their poor list. Look for them to potentially trade out some of this year's picks. Not sure if we can get in on the action, but will be something to keep an eye on.

If that is true then our competition has some problems.

Yep.

Even if we wanted to potentially add a depth player there's literally nothing that sticks out in the current market.

I suppose they are delisted for a reason.

was reading about a salary dump trade GC/North were looking at which would be roughly be as follows;

North Melbourne acquire Daniel Macpherson (paying majority of the wage) and Pick 19

Gold Coast Get either late 3rd of 4th round.

Would the AFL approve this trade?

    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.
