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.


Dees win $1million McClelland Trophy

There's certainly suggestions they're key reasons why Chloe Molloy, Steph Chiocci, and Jamie Lambert left their AFLW program.  Their entire team went to the football department last year after DeGropey's Bali incident and basically stated that unless the club does something to address apparently misogyny in the club, they'll have a serious problem retaining several of their women players.  Those three walked.  I can't say I blame them.

Was Collingwood's "Do Better" report solely about indigenous issues or did it address other matters such as misogyny?

Just Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples related issues.

Their report on misogyny is still being worked on.

Epic report - current draft has 3,232 chapters.

250k divided equally between 44 AFLM players = $5,681.00 ea

250k divided equally between 31 AFLW players = $8,064.00 ea

500k to the club but effects the soft-cap.

A good breakdown I reckon

Assume the recently departed players still get paid, a nice little exit bonus for them.

How does it affect the soft cap? I thought the soft cap related to expenditure, not revenue. Do you mean that depending on where we spend it, it could affect the soft cap? If so, surely there are ways to make use of it without the soft cap being affected?

The original article I read said that it did affect the soft cap but the article today is on the afl.com.au side said that it is exempt from it.  Huzzah!

DEE fence is bang on, the silence is deafening. MFC wins the trophy and 1mil for being the most consistent club across AFL and AFLW and radio silence from AFL.com. Instead an article about how important top ten picks are (duh!). MFC has been the benchmark across all three competitions AFL, AFLW, VFL for three years now. We’ve won 3 premierships (and counting with AFLW23 still to play) 4 GFs, finished in the top 4 8 times, made 9 final series and easily been the best club over this period. 
 

But what are they reporting on? A smear campaign against our coach and his family from 2020-21.

What are our real issues?Joel Smith is an [censored] who did coke in season. Clayton Oliver is immature and has some issues, Stephen May is confident and has a big mouth, leading to one stupid fight with his teammates and a statement about CFC that annoyed them (despite being true!). That’s it.
 

Compare that to CFC:

The “do better report”: https://amp.theguardian.com/sport/2021/feb/01/collingwood-afl-clubs-culture-of-structural-racism-condemned-in-scathing-report

Wow what an incredible “culture” led to this years flag, it’s almost like winning premierships is possible even with a team of misbehaving DH’s as long as they are good at football. But no, it’s probably Darcy Moore’s ability to deliver a year 10 level debate speech and Craig MacRae and the Daicos’s being nice guys, I’m sure that’s an impeccable “culcha”. 

It’s nice to confirm the bias against us in the AFL media, which was largely under the surface until now. They hate us and will never praise us as a “big club” (within 10k and 16k of Hawthorn and Essendon with a higher average home attendance but never acknowledge that). Time for us to start calling them out often and loudly, or stop listening to and watching their rubbish as Robbo, Warner at the Hun are out for us as are Damo, Cornes and others at AFL.com. Stuff em.

My unwavering sentiments are precisely the same as yours. You pointed out so many things there that mean so much to teams that seem to go out of their way to be clean and yet the process and the system prevents them.

You know i think that is what the problem is. We are the Club that other teams aspire to be like and that annoys them.

My understanding is that it was on race in general, given Heretia Lumumba is not indigenous, but did lodge a complaint about racism.

1 million in prize money for the McClelland trophy compared to the profits of merchandise sales after winning the premiership, more members and potentially more sponsors. Obviously we’ll take it but for me it doesn’t take away from the disappointment of this years final series. This year was a massive fail from the men’s team, even with our injuries we should have beaten the Pies easily in week 1.

Come on, BA. Do we really need to be reminded yet again of our finals losses? And in this thread? Let’s celebrate the winning of the McClelland by our outstanding Club, especially in this dedicated thread.

It’s a recognition of both teams for the season excluding finals… unfortunately other supporters in particular pies ones will always reference the straight sets exit and water down this.. they continue to call our premiership the covid cup , yet our dominance across the 3 finals & playing on neutral grounds & zero home ground advantage is passed over vs them who didn’t leave Melbourne sill for the last 5 games of the season, one can only imagine if the lions win the flag and had the same fixture

By your very own reasoning we don’t need to discuss finals when talking about the McClelland. And you’re right, we don’t, which is why I don’t think this thread is a place to bring up the men’s finals. In particular, bemoaning the losses of such.

I've never heard a single comment like that, nor any denigration of our premiership from any supporters of other clubs at any time.  If anything, they were blown away at just how dominant we were in that 2021 finals series.

Delighted to add the $1m to the kitty but there's something hollow about this given the way both teams went out in straight sets.

Better to go out in straight sets with a million dollars than in straight sets without any money

    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.
