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.


Angus Brayshaw Re-Signs Until 2028

That presser from Goody was bloody impressive.  A coach that does not speak BS!  quite remarkable

He is a different person to the 2019 version at pressers.

Genuine warmth and care for the players.

Yeah, but is he still the right guy?

I'd much prefer to lose Brayshaw than Jackson though. If we lost Jackson, are we going to be the next Geelong and spend the next 10 years trying to find a ruckman?

I've been following Melbourne since the late 80s and we've always had a decent ruckman (O'Dwyer, Stynes, White, Jamar, Gawn, Jackson). Hasn't been a weakness of ours.

Not really sticking his neck out there, is he.

Yep, biggest scoop of vanilla ice-cream ever.

This just in, Andrew Brayshaw (scratch that - Nat Fyfe) will play for either Melbourne or Fremantle in 2023.
 

See…………….I can do it too Tim 🤪

And neither was that a successful era.

Scott lycett/nathan vardy

Toby nankervis

Jordan Roughhead. 

These are premiership ruckman.  Much prefer to have 2 way running, smart, courageous hard midfielders. The ruckman is the cream, its not the substance. Overpaying to keep Jackson and losing Brayshaw would be a decent misstep imo.  Also, Collingwood says hi.

Just watched the videos of Angus and the press conference of Goody- I am now feeling that much more confident that he will re sign with us. 

As an aside I am so impressed also how Goodwin responded to a question on how he would feel if Yze wanted to pursue his coaching career elsewhere.  This club really does walk the talk when it comes to being respectful- I am a very proud demon fan

Hannan left cos he realised he would not make our GF side. Simple as that......

We wanted to see him improve his defensive game, we loved what he did on offense but he simply didn't work hard enough the other way and would fade out of games completely as a result. 

The dogs offered him job security and more consistent games in the seniors so pretty easy decision for all involved there

Fortunately for MH he got to be there on the day when the team that drafted him had the ultimate success

Just read that Carlton are now into Amon & Brayshaw....

Given the amount they have spent on blokes like Jack Martin, Adam Saad and Zac Williams it would amaze me if they have much salary cap.... 

Must be going back to the old brown paper bag days.

Was that from a reliable report?

IF Gus wants more midfield time he won't get it at Carlton with Cripps, Cerra, Walsh etc settled there. 

Wishful thinking by Carlton.

Who was teh last player we lost that we really wanted to keep? its been a while. Gus has been huge for 2 years and is obviously happy within himself and has matured to the point that becoming a fill in or in case of emergency player has not worried him. 

Id be surprised if he left to be honest but who knows. If its a case of Lose Brayshaw to keep Sparrow would you be ok with it?

He went missing when the team was under pressure and takes the wrong option on lots of occassions, I have the opinion he was and is an ordinary player who is just an opportunist and rarely creates goals from nothing.

I actually prefer Brayshaw in the backline than on the wing. I feel like he is much better in defence. But I don't blame him for wanting to be an inside mid somewhere. He could be a top 5 Brownlow finisher if given a full time inside mid role somewhere.

I would say Scully. Club wanted to keep him but he was never invested like Gus.

Possibly correct and his best was at the Demons. Hindsight probably suggests in the end we didn't really miss him that much.

    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.
