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.

Long time lurker. First time poster. Fan since I was in nappies. 

In which case you don't pay enough attention. There is nothing like having an exchange with Mazer to educate about the personalities on Dland.

I'm happy enough it's not season ending.

If we are good enough to be in the top 4 or 6 when he returns then get him cherry ripe for the second half of the season. I know we have too many back-men out at the moment but I think Hunt, Tomlinson, Joel Smith get a chance to play and prove themselves and Brayshaw and Tom McD were great in defence on Wednesday night meaning Bedford gets his chance up the field.

In a sense theres no use having great depth unless you get to use it and develop it.

Having said all that does anyone know the timeframe for Petty, Rivers and Lever to return?

Expect 6-8 weeks 

Yep Id say probably back in 8 just to be safe but you never know it could be earlier. Had the same thing done a couple of times and your usually walking about quite easily in a week . Club may play it safe.

He  is a huge loss.

But J. Smith was good and Bowey continues his great career.

Lever back soon.

Hunt and Tmac options.

Young Bedford looked promising.

pS Would be great if the club updated its website injury report......still has Marty Hore out for the season as injured.

3 to 4 weeks only ! BANK ON IT 

Cheers PF

Sorry PF, I think it’s 4-6

i don’t know what is going on but despite the fact that Salem is absolutely one of our most important players, I am completely unworried (just in case that is not a real word- don’t hate me dworship).

Does this mean my MFCSS is cured?!

The walking is one thing, I had a severe hip fracture last June and was walking again two days later. I am nowhere near 100 after 9 months. Ofcourse Chris has about 40 years and elite fitness on me! 😉

T Mac tore his meniscus that day.

Funny (not funny) that he finally played a ripping game that year and then his season was over.

As for Salem, 6 weeks or under is a good result here. Rather he out at the start of the year than the business end. 

Correct BBP I am glad you clarified that injury as I believed it was an ankle type injury not his knee.  Indeed Tmac has had ankle problems rather than knees.

Oh and back once or twice. But he is a great team member and forward it back is valuable eith his height and strength. Often dies far more than the average supporter gives him credit for. Just like Kossie and ANB and Harmesy to a lesser extent.

Yes he is… but he’ll be bk for the pointy end of the season when it really matters. I’m sure hunt or smith  will appreciate the extra spot opening down back too.  

Petty still 3-4 weeks away? I thought he was almost ready?

Despite all the pre season chatter, we haven’t had to actually choose between Tommo and Petty yet!

I’m wondering if we keep Tmac down back until Petty is ready to return and this opens up the door for Weideman to try and prove he belongs at senior level. 

I suspect TMac will stay back if Lever is not ready to come back. Once Lever is fit, I think TMac returns forward.

If we want another tall in the interim, Weideman gets that spot. Personally, I think we should be going in with Brown, TMac/Weid, Gawn/Jackson and Fritsch, so I'd be bringing Weideman in if TMac has to play defence.

Petty can also play forward.

I'm not sure he will, though.

Like, are we really going to bring Petty in to play forward whilst keeping TMac down back? 

No but do we need Lever, Tomlinson, May and Petty in the same backline?

If Tomlinson is playing good footy and Tmac struggles up forward as he did second half of last season and Weideman is giving us nothing, why wouldn’t you try Petty?

He is too good to play VFL.

No, I don't think we're going to go into any game this year with all four of them in the backline.

But swinging Petty forward would IMO be a move of pretty much last resort.

I think Tomlinson will have to play pretty strong football prior to Petty's return to hold him out of the side. But if TMac/Weid are playing well in the forward line the discussion will be moot as there won't be a forward spot anyway.

Lots of ifs - Tomo going well AND TM struggling AND Weed not up to it.  Mmmm, if all the ifs line up, maybe. Not highly likely though.

You wouldn't play Lever, Tomlinson, May and Petty together in the backline in  the same match if it means you omit one of Rivers or Bowey, unless it was about team balance or match ups.

As  much as we want our best six defenders each week, this injury affected start enables us to trial peripheral or second tier defenders to see what they bring. The thing is we already know what their expected to do and they usually do it in our system.

    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.
