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.

At this stage of the season the MFC has bigger fish to fry before they turn their attention to recuiting players from other clubs.

The recruiter would never mention player they wish to recruit because it may distract the playing group from the job at hand.

You do realise that a recruiters job is to spend the whole year dealing with other recruiters, players and managers to suss out potential trades? They won't pause simply because we made the finals, quite the opposite. We are a destination club and Freo are on holidays. 

I say go hard, keep it quiet, as you say, and let's see if Cerra really wants success.

Talk about destabilising a Club and list!!

Forget it snd let us build strength the way we have which is going to last!

 

I think you need to re-read my post. I get that most people skim over comments and draw their conclusions. But if you examine it closely, you will see that the only players where you may get some luck in trading for Cerra are those with a WA connection. I said Brayshaw is doubtful given his immediate family is here, do everything you can to keep LJ  (is he a rare commodity) and for Rivers only if he wanted to move. 

How is that destabilising?

Interesting this was mentioned by Tom Morris in the Jack Gunston article.

Melbourne also flirted with the possibility of going after Adam Cerra, but with limited draft capital the Demons would find it difficult to do a deal with Fremantle for the slick midfielder. Carlton remains the strong favourite to get Cerra.

Damn. I was picturing Rick Grimes from Walking Dead. Could see "Rick" being this upset when we leak goals.

Sounds good to me.

What other options available out there?

It's interesting. If rumours are to be believed a number of clubs from GWS, to Sydney, to Collingwood have cap issues. 

I think we'll look to be aggressive this off season, flag or no flag. We're in our window now and if we can add an elite user to our midfield that can play inside, but mostly outside and improve our ball use from stoppage, it'll add an extra dimension to our game and give us more options.

I'd be looking at one of the NSW clubs. Both are stacked with talented kids in the 21-25 age bracket.

The major thing is convincing them to come. If we get that bit sorted, we'll find the trade capital to make the rest work.

I've said it 50 times in other threads but I'll say it again. But wouldn't bringing in Maynard to then release a Rivers or Salem into the midfield mix strengthen two positions with one move? Cheaper than bringing in a Cerra type too.

I reckon Salem is too slow for the midfield and just too useful off HB with setting up play

River is obviously untried so far, but might be worth a look

Fair points. Just feel there's greater upside with what Maynard would allow us to do.

I reckon Rivers has great wing/midfield potential. Also wonder if we might see Brayshaw return to the midfield next year after being defensively educated on the wing.

I've been thinking the same thing myself with Brayshaw, he has proven himself a true team player this year on the wing and has probably done everything the coaching staff has asked of him despite what others may think.

Rivers yes, Salem no at this stage in his career.

And there is a good chance bowey will end up as a mid, given that’s where he played as a junior.

And we have captain Jack sparrow and Jordan in rhe mix too

@Pennant St Dee or other WA Demons heard anything on the Cerra front?

Nothing regarding a trade of late, heard earlier in the year he was Geelong bound, but doesn’t seem to be the case. 
 

Nothing to do with Freo just he and his partner wanting to return to Victoria by all accounts

    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.
