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.

Oh right, I didn’t realise. I watched him play once and he was marking everything but ended up with 5 behinds or something similar. Knows how to find the ball for sure

He recently signed for 2 years with Freo last week. This thread  should be closed.

You'd have to feel for Lobb - requesting a trade 2 years in a row... must be difficult to work hard for your employer week in week out as a by-product.

I don't he signed a contract honor it. I am tired of these players who want to leave contracts early. Same applies to clubs like Collingwood.

Tarryn Thomas  

His back half of 2021 was elite once he was moved into the midfield. As classy as they come.

Really fell away in 2022 form-wise and was also dealing with some personal issues.

Hope we’re having discussions with his management as I think with a fresh start he would be a great fit for the Dees.

This came up on my FB page. We are dealing with the club that has the lowest to offer us for LJ. Where as WC have so much more in draft capital.

Freo will get picks from the trade out of Acres, Logue, Lobb and Tucker. Dees should demand a top 10 pick from Freo (which they need to trade up using the Logue trade packaged with pick 13) and their 2023 1st round pick.

So:

OUT: Mitch Brown / Majak / Rosman / Hunt / Bedford

IN: Gundy  / Freo Picks x 1 ( 1 will be future first) so unless others.. rest will be draft haul not trade haul? 

Disappointed if that's it.

Absolutely [censored] poor. These kids all want to be pick one but play for successful club. Well that’s not how the system works. Where is the resilience? 
This guy won’t make it unless he grows up. 

Exactly what they said about Einstein, Jagger and Zuckerburg. So the kid is obviously no chance.

All the people sooking we aren't linked to 700 players like Essendon are every year need to get a grip. Our club does things quietly and diligently. I have no doubt there are other players we are looking at but not telling the media about.

High quality user by foot. Likes the physical stuff and was right up there in f50 tackles last year and good at winning the ball at stoppages. He and Tracc rotating between mid/fwd would be terrific.

Alternatively could play out of defence for us too.

Thomas and Langdon could practice their contact drills on the same side.

It's a no from me on Thomas. He hits targets. Will take years to teach him to kick it over the head of BBB. 

Can anyone remember if Thomas and BBB played together at 🦘and if so did they “click”?

As long as we dont stand still for another year. We Won a flag and added Luke Dunstan. We need to keep getting better players in. But i hope and think you are probably right about the club not leaking which is a very good sign.

Hi All,

We are currently courting a contracted and uncontracted player both "A Grade" Key Forwards. 

The uncontracted player is Jack Gunston

Was the contracted player McKay?

Yes but strictly talking traded in players ad proven talent.

It's hard to go to the trade and draft at the the same time unless there's a FA you want.  Look at Richmond, they're going to wipe out two drafts for Taranto and Hopper.

Go and look at his draft profile and his strengths and weaknesses and the reason he went as high as he did. 

He has smarts in spades, he just needs a defined role. 

If ANB can play half forward, Jordan and Brayshaw on a wing then I'm sure a previous number 3 draft pick can learn to play a position.

I'd have him in our midfield rotation as is anyway. He can compete with Sparrow and Harmes for that spot over summer. 

More competition for spots and lifts the standards of those he'd be competing with. 

His exposed form at AFL/VFL level is more relevant than his draft position. Just has not shown much at AFL level.

Random question, can't find the trade tracker on the afl website. Are they not doing one this year? Was, generally speaking, a pretty good way to easily keep track of movements but can only see links to the trade articles as they happen.

Yeahbdont think they're doing it this year. I'm pretty sure that's the same as thr national draft as well on draft night.

Can't see it either. The AFL site seems to have gotten rid of anything useful this year.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 07 vs Richmond

    It's Game Day and the Demons once again open the round of football with their annual clash against Richmond on ANZAC Eve. The Tigers, coached by former Dees champion and Premiership assistant coach Adem Yze have a plethora of stars missing due to injury but beware the wounded Tiger. The Dees will have to be switched on tonight. A win will keep them in the hunt for the Top 4 whilst a loss could see them fall out of the 8 for the first time since 2020.

    Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin ventured down to Gosch's Paddock to bring you his observations from this morning's Captain's Run including some hints at the changes for our ANZAC Eve clash against the Tigers. Sunny, though a touch windy, this morning, 23 of them no emergencies.  Forwards out first. Harrison Petty, JvR, Jack Billings, Kade Chandler, Kozzy, Bayley Fritsch, and coach Stafford.  The backs join them, Steven May, Jake Lever, Woey, Judd McVee, Blake Howes, Tom McDonald

    OOZEE by The Oracle

    There’s a touch of irony in the fact that Adem Yze played his first game for Melbourne in Round 13, 1995 against the club he now coaches. For that game, he wore the number 44 guernsey and got six touches in a game the team won by 11 points.  The man whose first name was often misspelled, soon changed to the number 13 and it turned out lucky for him. He became a highly revered Demon with a record of 271 games during which his presence was acknowledged by the fans with the chant of “Oozee” wh

    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.
