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.

Is the tyranny of distance keeping our track watchers away?

Wow 

Reckon Turner has put in size and weight to his frame pre season  which is great news.

Also how much has RIV developed in size and bulk in 2 seasons ? A big lad developing before our eyes !! 

A big tick to our development programs of the last few years ! 

PS bet Bowser  has put on weight and size just can't see it yet!!

Disco Turner looks like he could play key position.

I bumped into Daniel Turner at our local gym during the off season and had a good chat to him about his stint so far in the AFL system and the September experience. 

I was also blown away by how incredibly fit he was. He'd already lost all his puppy fat and looked as lean as I had seen. He said he got a reality check with just how professional you have to be off field including your diet. Stark different compared to his 'tradie diet' as an apprentice plumber prior to being drafted.

He was doing his running program up here with Charlie Spargo who is an absolute pro when it comes to off field training standards. 

His older brother has recently signed at our footy club. Looking forward to getting some good updates off him.

I hope he gets a game next year.

Recruit him to Dland ala Drunkn.

It looks like the group has come back in extra good shape and Hibberd has fined down a little from last year.

Hibbo was his fittest since he joined us in 2017 last year and carried no extra weight at all and very good season by the end of year when the cards fell for him and not Hunty. 
Will still be handy this season to mind Martin snd Johanissen!!

Went back and had another look at toddy's Training photos.
What I should have said was he ( Daniel Turner) looks more muscly and fitter and as indicated by DD lost his puppy fat.But overall he looks a bigger unit ready for some serious footy. 
Love  the story how he has done extra work running etc. with Spargs. That's the great thing about our Club there is always a mate to help you go the extra mile.

also Joel  Smith looks by far the fittest he has been ever. The test will come when the real body work and match practice to see if his body can survive and give him a belated chance for a career in the defence in 2022. There are no vacancies now but it's amazing how they can in a full season esp. with Covid capers going on! He deserves a change of luck and this  Year is his last chance.

Another  who looks much fitter is Rosman with a full first preseason under his body. May be the key to his form also with this base giving him confidence. Might also be the fact that one Blake Howes  will be fighting like hell to challenge for a senior spot if one arises at any stage in our centreline.

Wonder how much weights work JVR Howes Taj Juddy AMW are doing at this stage. If much at all. 

These players are really along with Dunstan starting their career but so much excitement as we look for more  gems from the JT factory.

Bring on a full Casey season so we can give these future players a decent chance of adjusting to an AFL Club already on its way to potentially its greatest modern period of sustained success.

There was very little known of Turner when he was drafted late in last year’s mid-season draft. One unconfirmed report said that he started last year at 191cm but was closer to 194cm when selected in June. 

@dazzledavey36- could you please follow up his height and the all-important nickname “Disco”? Do they have discos in your neck of the woods?

I have a technical question. When I open the gallery in my Chrome browser, the tops and bottoms of the photos are "chopped off" so I basically see a lot of headless players. Any suggestions as to how to fix this gratefully received. (Note: Any answers need to be understood by someone with the technical knowledge equivalent of someone under ten years old...or over 60).

Also, that's a nasty swollen joint on Joel Smith's left hand ring finger. I wonder whether that's permanent damage or just some temporary swelling?

    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.
