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.


Farewell Luke Jackson

Were we to win another flag this year 🤞, I’d bare no ill will if Jacko left.

Of course id much rather him stay, but if I were to see a flag in person, on top of finally see us raise the cup last year (all be it from here in Melbourne), then all would be right in the world.

we should be targeting sustained success and identifying key pillars in that vision. Players like Sparrow, ANB, Spargo, you love them and you're glad they're along for the ride but they are ultimately replaceable. Guys like Jackson and Brayshaw are part of a group of 5-6 players that are truly once in a generation types at their position. It's a bit like playing NBA 2K22 My Team and landing multiple diamond players for your squad. You don't trade them out for more card packs in the hope you'll land more diamond players. You keep them for as long as you can. Three years of Jackson ain't enough and anything less than him being a Demon For Life would really hurt.

I agree with what you are saying, but I think Tom Sparrow is going to get a lot better.

If the $$$ involved mean we keep Brayshaw and lose Dogga - I'm OK with that.  Brayshaw is far more important IMV

And we will get serious compensation for trading jackson at the $$$ involved - 2 top 10 and an emerging star would be going rate for a million dollar per year contract. Or top 10 and their Brayshaw. It's going to cost them plenty if they think he's worth the dollars reported 

I’d love to snag the other Brayshaw, but has anyone thought where we would actually play him?

Can we rename this thread? It’s a pain to open it up and there’s just endless speculation but nothing concrete. 
Maybe change the name of the thread to speculation about Luke Jackson.

Any news about house hunting or Mordialloc coffees today?

Haha, this thread read a lot better back in October. Some claimed it was a done deal back then and an announcement was just around the corner. We do get some great mail on here, was really hoping this one was on the money back then.

Just hope he nominates the Eagles now.

Cal Twomey on AFL exchange reckons there's a growing consensus around the league that Jackson is going to request a trade.

Probably based on the fact that he hasn’t re signed by now.

Interesting that other big names at other clubs, like Neale and English, already have.

If he does go need to play hardball. If it is go home factor west coast have to be in the mix . Prefer him to go into the draft and get nothing than get late first rounder and steak knives from freo. 
 

I think Gus will stay

A lot of water to go under before that happens. But if Dogga does in fact want to go to the Eagles, I think they will split pick 2 into a couple of 1st rounders in the teens. Then offer us one of those and a 2nd rounder (about 20). 

 

Yeah, no.

Luke is a former pick 3 whose value has only gone up.

I find it hard to reconcile his obvious joy and happy demeanour after the game last week with his desire to leave. Obviously he’s thinking about leaving otherwise he’d have signed by now but I don’t think he’s definitely gone by any means.


And if he does decide to go I’ll be pretty peeved he didn’t go last year when we had a chance to trade in cerra

it means buyer beware recruiting anyone from WA, especially if they are any good. 

I guess it depends which way you look it at.

If you take a short term view and we win back to back flags with LJ playing 2 good grand finals, then you'd say the recruitment was a roaring success, we shake his hand and get some good compensation.

If you take a long term view, it's an absolute disaster to lose a pick 3 that the club clearly had a 15 year view of that player being the number one ruck and franchise player of the club, irrespective of what state they're from.

I think Taylor and Co. will avoid WA (and even other states) if we ever get a prized pick again (i.e. - top 5)

    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.
