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.

If Freo can't find the picks to do the deal do we target one of their players?

Realistically, who might that be? 

Let's leave Brayshaw, Serong and Young out of the mix because that's not going to happen

The three or four good players they have are all contracted til around 2036

The others are Mundy (retired) & Fyfe (cooked)

Just checked and signed a deal till 2026 a couple months ago. If we target someone it would be someone like Henry or Meek or some other fringe player. I'd like Treacy but they've got no forwards so I can't see that happening. I honestly think Lobb would give us a better shot at a flag than Grundy too.

I had a look at their players and feels like they’ve signed most of their core.
Ever heard of this bloke? Me neither 

I don’t care who you are that’s one of the more impressive highlight reals I’ve seen in a while

21 year old and 199cm key forward..

Just looked at his wafl stats, seems like he played in reserves for most of the year, and wasn't particularly impressive. Was going at 3 goals a game in the WAFL before being picked up midseason so could be something there though.

Freo currently have 13, F1st, North F2nd, North F3rd.

If Lobb to Dogs, say 25.

Maybe Treacy as steak knives and we have another young key forward.

Deal done.

Would give us say 13, our pick 18, 20 and 38 next year, in a strong draft and with picks to draft or trade.

This year 13 and say 25 ( Lobb ) and say 35 for Bedford.

We could bundle 13, 25 and 35 to get 2 slightly better picks and use them this year. You might get say 10 and 20.

See how easy it is.

We haven't got those really high picks, but we have got enough for this year and next.

A motley collection of mid range picks for a generational pick 3.

I know we will be screwed but please let's not sugar coat it

Come on down Eagles !!!

Are you saying Jacko for all of that?? I assume this is a joke.

Melb In > 13, 25, F1st (Freo), F2nd (North), F3rd (North) and Treacy
Freo In > Jackson

There's no way Freo would do that.  I know the pick values can be misleading but that equates to Pick 1, Pick 8 and Treacy (when they have as many young key forward options as we do)

Agree that deal is absurd.
We must get in 13, their future 1st and north’s future 2nd. We could throw back a future 3rd (or future 2nd at a stretch)

How about...

Jackson and pick 44 to Freo for pick 13, Future 1st, and (North's) Future 2nd

Picks 13 and 27 to Geelong for pick 7 - Geelong use 13 for Bruhn

Grundy to Dees for Freo's (North's) future 2nd

Dees trade 7 and our future 2nd to GWS for 15 and 19

Dees end up with Grundy, 15, 19 and future 1st for Jackson, 27, 44 and a future 2nd

 

No you already traded 27

I still can’t see how Freo can give us an acceptable deal for LJ. This will drag right out into next week 

Agree Sir They are struggling and have nothing to trade

    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
