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.

Thanks for your reply. 
I would also be interested to hear from anyone else on Demonland who is Tasmanian regarding the same question. 
Will you swap teams? Will you buy membership to one or both clubs?

Hi Jaded, I’m Irish, lived in Melbourne for 10 years and have lived south of Hobart.
so not Tasmanian at all 😂
Melbourne will remain my number one team I pretty sure but I will also go to the new teams games and hope they are a great success.
I do feel that the majority of people here that support a team on the mainland will have no problem just following the new Tassie team. By and large I don’t feel most people here are die hard fans of their chosen AFL team and will be keen to get behind a new completely Tassie team.

All of his points are very valid.

Huh what points? 

Media rights? That wasn't even a point, barely a sentence.... and eyeballs?  560k Tassie people, thats at least 2 million eyeballs we have (and Tasmanians can make that joke!)  

Go home factor?  seriously thats been something happening for years, it's not new, but more importantly it isn't valid in that he states Qld and WA players want to go home, hmm, so do Vic players and SA players. But apparently this is somehow more valid because of Tassie and his dislike of the state.  

The issue is more the tone of 'Imagine 20 year olds sent to Tassie wanting to stay past 2 years' Tasmania is no longer a convict settlement... that view is rude and pathetic and as I called out wrong.

Today is a hugely significant day for the AFL, for Tasmania, the people, the former players and it's just tiring listening to someone constantly troll and slag off Tasmania or the team that is coming.

Man I am glad our core guns will be towards the end of their career by 2028.

The big money to lure players to Tassie will be hard to resist.  Kozzi and JVR probably the ones that might get hit up

I favour the club being named Hobart to match cities or suburbs which applies to most clubs. 

I like the Hobart Islanders.

 if the AFL give them the GWS type draft concessions it will be hard to access top tier draft picks

Tasmania Devils theme song (to the tune of Little Peter Rabbit Had a Fly Upon his nose)

We're the Tassie Devils, we play with heart and pride.

We'll forge a great tradition that can never be denied.

We play it tough, we play to win, we are the premier side.

And we'll bring the flag back home!

Like Tassie players of old, we'll always represent you.

Our faith is in eachother, that's what will always see us through.

Don't you ever write us off, no matter what we do.

And we'll bring the flag back home!

Tassie Devils forever. Like brothers* we will stick together. We're never beaten, no not ever. And we'll bring the flag back home.

We'll bring the flag back home!

*Substitute with sister for AFLW team.

Here's the tune if you need to hear it. Casey Scorpions old song.

Appreciate all your thoughts on this Ouch. We've all got our own opinions on it and how it would work but it is good to hear points of view from people passionate about the Dees AND Tassie.

2027-2029 is when I expect our drop off to come... gotta be really clever with managing our list heading into this period, or we are looking at another decade in the wilderness. 

Might mean that we don't bundle up our early picks this year and get in as much talent as possible.

Not to mention how important it is that we win another flag or two in the next 2-3 years while our list is primed.

Yes we are in much better hands than when GWS and GC came in.

Plus everyone now has the benefit of hindsight with how they managed the list when those two came into the competition. So everyone will be better prepared I think. 

I would also think that the AFL will forced Tassie to on-trade at least some of their early picks for established players, rather than just go to the draft. Can't have a team full of 18 year olds.

Yes and No...

We have any number of Father Son  opportunities coming through  over coming years.  Granted not all fly as high as the parent.  In a fashion we might have them at a discount if any are promising.  We can only offer the picks we have... and everyones is effectively diluted and/or devalued because of the priority picks going to the Dishwashers.

We've made an art of finding talent.

Tbh...im not that concerned.. We'll still have a very good core to our list.

    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.
