  • 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.


Farewell Luke Jackson

Jackson will be a star. He has rare attributes and with time will become more polished. The only thing I can see stopping him is potential concussion issues, as he wants to be an inside mid, and coupled with his height, aggression, and stooping posture when hunting the ball I just think it’s an accident waiting to happen. I predict he will develop into a fwd/ruck, and one of the better ones in recent times. He has the attributes to be a very very good forward. I can’t see the midfielder experiment working though.

Not sour grapes at all hey...

  Remind me which poster made the following comments:

"Then there is Jackson, who is also super important to our future success."

"Luke Jackson may be the answer in the ruck.  He is like another midfielder when the ball hits the ground and we look more dynamic with him in there"

Helped us win a premiership and was a popular teammate, so I don't really get the angst some seem to have, and certainly think references to his mother are childish at best.

Don't get me wrong, i appreciate all he did in our Premiership season.  Last season though he seemed to have very little impact....in fact he went backwards imo.  Personally i rated some of the things he did on the field as exciting, but his consistency may be years away, in fact it may never come.  Is he a ruck/a forward/a midfielder?  I would say he falls way below expectations on any of those roles currently.

As for being childish with the mum insults, it was said tongue in cheek...i could care less what happens to Luke or his mum now he is not one of ours.  Just making a prediction that he won't live up to Freo's expectations.  He is getting paid like an elite player now, with this comes much greater responsibility....Not sure he is ready for all that entails.

Fremantle supporters will expect great things from him on a weekly basis.  Apart from being a great athlete i don't think he has the skills/craft to be an elite player wherever placed on the field.  Contributing will not be enough given his pay packet

If i actually posted any of what you quoted it would have been from 2021....2022 he was super disappointing...His contract discussion was a constant distraction, his form tapered off, by end of year i thought he barely warranted a place in the seniors.

After reading 315 pages on him, rightly or wrongly i am entitled to an opinion on him.   I do actually watch every match and have an idea on his actual strengths and weaknesses.

Yeah, how dare she thank the club and the supporters and be happy to have her son back in the same state as her.

Saying a players Mum is "fair game" says more about you than her tbh.

Quit clutching your pearls.

When you say something publicly, as she did, you open yourself up to the conversation.

I wouldn’t say anything about Weed’s mum. Why? Because she didn’t put herself in the conversation by commenting publicly. See how it works?

Can anyone offer up a reason as to why his early season games where so much better than his finals performances this year?

He was Melbourne'd.

AH yes, I see how it works in your world - Keep your mouth shut, even if you're saying absolutely nothing negative, otherwise you're fair game for anonymous people on the internet. Sounds cool mate.

He's only just turned 21, I think we sometimes forget that given how quickly he burst onto the scene, and it seemed clear this year he was battling injury/soreness as the year went on.

Fair enough, but you've probably noticed many others are seemingly still carrying the intense hurt at Luke's Mum daring to thank the club on the internet and have said she's "fair game".

 Pre-season this year to be fair, but you definitely held a different opinion of him before it became clear he would leave.

revisionism is alive and well - and most of us are guilty of it.

Jackson's most exciting trait is that he doesn't know how good is he

His biggest weakness is he doesn't know how good is he

Not sure he has the swagger (as the kids say) to be as good as he could potentially be

Time will tell

Nothing burns more than being called ‘an anonymous person on the internet’ by an anonymous person on the internet.

I’m not sure I’ll ever recover.

What a random thing to say he has never had concussion issues before and there are plenty of tall mids that never have an issue I’d say there’s more of a chance of the Perth party life getting to him

Well he has history.

I'm sure it was reported he got involved in a Perth night club dust up just after the GF (separate to the one that the Dees and Dogs reportedly got into)

Got a source for this kind of stuff? Only thing I remember being reported was that he was denied entry (along with a group of mates) to a club and then police came along and they all had a chat. No mention of a 'dust up'. Happy to see your info, but would probably think twice about making up stuff like this if it isn't factual.

Correct.

There was no dust up, there was a photograph of him talking to the security guard and that's it.

Honestly, what 20 year old ratbag kid hasn't been refused into a club before.

Saying he has "history" of behaviour is now just laughable.

Whenever I get a new smartphone, without fail the screen gets scratched inside the first year of having it.

It might be the light in this waiting room but I can clearly see it while trying to read this thread.

If anyone has any fixes PM me. It's not a deep scratch but is noticeable.

    THAT WAS THE YEAR THAT WAS: 2023

    When the dust settled on 2023, the Melbourne Football Club coach Simon Goodwin lamented that the club knew it needed to score more to land a second premiership in the current era. He opined that an average of one more goal per game would have had his charges in football’s stratosphere.  Goodwin was right and, based on his team’s scoring opportunities, that extra goal (and more) was well within its grasp if only they had better converted their shots at goal. Take the side’s last six defeats
