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.

Tsatas highlights.

Few turnovers here and there and seems to rush it when he has time.

My preference in no particular order is Sheezel, Cadman, Wardlaw and Jhye Clark

I spoke with Harry last week and asked him what he thought about being drafted by Melbourne in light of the fact that we might potentially get an early draft pick in the Freo trade. He was a bit wary because he felt it was a tough team to break into but I think he was being modest. He’s a Hawks fan and would be thrilled to end up there.

Think Mattaes Phillipou could be a good fit and potentially in our range 

strong bodied mid/forward 192cm apparently a lot of similarities to bontempelli 

Yep, he's the one I like Edm. Bottom ager. We're all experts at this stage and as an expert, I like the look of this guy.

He even moves like Bont. I believe he has the highest ceiling out of anyone in the draft with his combination of contested ball, kicking, decision making, and overhead marking.

 

I find it interesting that the article last week mentioned that we are looking for a top 7 pick, I heard Jason Taylor recently say that he thinks there’s an even group at the top of elite talents and then there’s quite a drop off to an even pool of players. Makes me wonder who those 7 players are if the purpose of a top 7 pick is to guarantee one of those players.

the obvious concern on phillipou is that we currently don't have a pick high enough to get him and i'm always wary of drafting south oztrayans due to go home factor and the majority playing outside running games at local level that don't suit the modern afl game

If we don’t get the early young key forwards like Cadman and Gruzewski, Fletcher Hart might be worth a rookie opportunity.

Fletcher Hart
Club: Murray Bushrangers/Albury
Height: 200cm
Weight: 97kg
DOB: 01/07/03

A tall forward who is an imposing athlete, Hart is a mobile big man who presents strongly as a marking target up forward. He showed a thin slice of his potential when he took 10 marks and kicked six goals in a NAB League game against the Northern Territory earlier this year.

I like the look of Phillipou a lot. Reminds me more of GWS Kelly than Bont. Excellent vision and creates time and space. Bottom ager too boot

Let's do the Poo!

He's a smooth mover for sure and yep he just qualifies for this draft by about a week I think.

Chris Doerre’s October Power Rankings have landed.

In them you’ll find some new names emerging in the first-round calculations.

Voss as a 1st rounder???

Doerre likes to mix em up!

Edit. If 22yo Voss has been overlooked in a couple of drafts already, doesn't that make him a free hit to any club? Or have I got the draft rules mixed up?

This draft a very midfielder heavy draft, and I feel we’re currently served fairly well in that regard.

I think we should be targeting explosive pace to replace Hunt, and project key forwards & rucks.

But I like that we’re currently loaded for next year’s draft that has a deep top end.

South Australians aren’t anywhere near as much of a flight risk as those from Western Australia. The real concern on Phillipou is his disposal which is one of the reasons that he could slide below no. 10 in this draft.

Would the club not entertain trading pick 13 and future 2nd or 1st? Seeing as though we have two future firsts (2023) and two future 2nds (2023)...we could get higher up the order this year - given there's some F/S picks.

I know next year's draft is being touted as stronger, yet I'd like to see a better return on investment for losing Jackson this year.

We've got a good record of trading up/picks.

Oliver Hollands is the one for me - likely to be around about when we make our first selection at pick 14.

Reckon he'll get snapped up pretty quickly by either Geelong or Carlton before our pick unfortunately.

    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.
