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.


Trade and Free Agency rumours

The Dunkley trade:

  • Brisbane receives Josh Dunkley, a future third-round selection and a future fourth-round selection (tied to Melbourne)
  • Western Bulldogs receive a second-round pick (currently No.21), a future first-round selection, a future second-round selection and a future fourth-round selection (tied to Geelong)

Thought the F4 swap interesting.  One tied to Geelong, one tied to us.   It will probably be pick 60 something for pick 60 something and the advantage could go either way.

Hardly worth swapping.

Thanks. No, it wasn't just your post, I have seen it stated the same way in the media i.e. only the 2nd round pick being qualified as "tied to Freo".

Cheers

Freo only had the one future first. So no need to clarify.

They had a pair of 2nd rounders. They had  their own and they had North Melbourne’s special pick from the Logue trade.

So in the interest of some clarity they specify the second round pick is the one tied to Freo’s ladder position

Firstly, let me congratulate the Dees for another extraordinary trade period.   


For those wanting to know who the KPF Melbourne is after.  Its Mitch Georgiades.  We have super currency next year.  2 firsts and 3 second round draft picks when Mitch is out of contract.  We will continue to go hard for him.  As I said before, the club thinks they can get him.  They think he and JVR are the two-pronged KPF for the future.  No doubt if Mitch is unattainable, they will look elsewhere for the medium-term missing piece of the puzzle.

Again, congratulations to the recruiting team.

I noticed the same thing. I took it as a slight on our team. Brisbane think we are going to finish significantly lower than Geelong.

 I get that Richmond brought some decent talent in this trade period, as things currently stand do they have a draft pick before 2024? 

2022:  53 and 63

2023:  Rnd 2 (tied to Coll), Rnd 3 (tied to Freo)

Hmm, not sure how they managed to trade out rnd 4 and rnd 1 next year as technically that isn't allowed.  But the data on the AFL website may not have been updated for the flurry of late trades.

Oh well, slim pickings for them this year.  They will have to trade out players next year to avoid the same.

Both Hardwick and Dusty are out of contract in 2024.  Maybe he is going all out for another premiership in the next two years then perhaps move on?

Tim Lamb comments are spot on I reckon

“We don't get tied up in the minutiae of every little deal, which I think is an approach that we take, which allows us to get deals done generally in a timely fashion.

“If you look at Luke (Jackson) going out, Brodie’s come in. We've lost Jayden Hunt as a free agent and Lachie Hunter comes in. Kade Chandler will come up from the rookie list to replace Toby Bedford, who we lost. Sam Weideman goes out, Josh Schache comes in. Then we've got a much-improved draft hand.”

I love how the club place’s  higher value on the overall list vs the individual trade. 
 

Grundy is more value than Dogga in the next couple of years. 
 

Scache is like for like for Wiedeman. More upside IMO as the Weed did not suit our system and Shack can play back and is tall to compete as a ruck. 
 

Hunter provides a better midfield wing option we lacked with Jordan and Brayshaw Jordan and Brayshaw are better as other midfield options. 
 

Chandler is like for like with Bedford. 
 

We now have more variety and proven talent… and a better draft hand to play thid and next year

An overall improvement IMO

I wonder if he's hinting here that Hunter will play off half back if he's insinuating like for like with Hunt.

Hawks just giving away their midfield for nothing. Absolute shambles. 
 

Freo getting O’Meara pisses me off. We need them to suck next year. 

It's not like O'Meara is a particularly good player though. He's as slow as a wet week, not all that damaging and doesn't average anywhere near 25 possessions. Maybe he'll be alright alongside Freo's midfield, but he shouldn't be the difference in Freo's fortunes. I assume they view him as the mature age Mundy replacement, but nowhere near as smooth.

Agree, O'meara is no-where near the talent he was or could have been without the injuries.

He'll be 29 next year and has a degenerative knee issue.

He's basically cooked.

    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.
