Posting Unsubstantiated Rumours on this Website is Strictly Forbidden
  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    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 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.

Will be remembered for delivering one of the best and fairest hip and shoulders to Vines in the 2019 Anzac Eve game.

Absolutely knocked the stuffing out of him, the definition of a wasted talent.

I am going to throw out a left field idea for the club talk to Ryder and convince him to Join the MFC on the rookie list as backup ruck for 1 year.

If we weren't going for Grundy I would have considered this but not so much now.

I don’t get this. If you make a change to allow lopsided trades you have to expect them to happen. Similarly it’s unfair on the player getting traded to ban them from being able to extend their contact. That goes against their free will to negotiate. 

This is only an issue because gold coast put such a great pick with Bowes. If they offered up pick 20 he’d be at Essendon or Hawthorn and no one would be worried 

I’d propose 2 changes

1. Limit the amount any one player can be backloaded to stop players becoming expendable dumps to begin with. I’d say 20% loading at most

2. Sort the gold coast suns out and just ban them from being stupid

Third, I assume you forgot Cordy.

All 5 of their list changes so far are sons of former VFL/AFL players

I must be missing one: Wallis, Hunter, Cordy and Dunkley who is not a Dogs father/son. Who is the fifth one?

They have three left Libba, West and Darcy.

I don't think the issue is extending their contracts, it is more the offering of extra years to reduce it in the years currently held. The idea would be they have to pay the same amount as the current contract and then can re-negotiate the additional years.

Schache was the only other player who is no longer on their list. According to Wikipedia his late father Laurence played for the Bears in the early 90s.

He played 29 games and kicked 64 goals for Brisbane in 91 and 92.

So if they can renegotiate extra years then why make them carry the existing cap burden? Gold Coast could’ve done that with Bowes too. We’ve done that with players such as Tom McDonald, Gawn and Lever too I believe. Happened with Brodie and Peter Wright too.

It seems to me like the Suns priced Bowes at 800k and didn’t even factor the Cats extending him. 

And would it even solve the issue? If Geelong are forced to pay Bowes 1.6 over 2 and then do a deal with him to pay him 400k for the 2 years after that, what’s stopping them just back ending Cam Guthrie or Jack Henry or whoever else they have a long term deal? Take 100k per year from 2 players and move it to the back of their deals and you get the same smoothing.

Because the whole point of them getting the pick 7 was to take on the contract, so by making it that they would have to pay the $850k next year as part of the deal to get pick 7. Gold Coast probably didn't even want to keep Bowes, which is why they did it and didn't renegotiate.

The contract should stand for the new club, simple. If the team ie GC want to pay some of his contract fine, but the cats should not have been able to pay the amount across more years. 

i can't see that it matters much if the player agrees. it also means his total $ is bigger and he gets extra year(s)

GC could have done the same but didn't want to

    SCRUTINY & RESILIENCE by Whispering Jack

    If the week when preseason training melds into scratch matches with other clubs, is the first marker for the beginning of a new season, then this has certainly been a torrid opener for the Melbourne Football Club in its campaign to remain a leading AFL premiership contender in 2024. The Demons were already under enormous scrutiny from the media and football’s fan base (including their own) after consecutive straight-sets finals exits, with Clayton Oliver’s well documented woes, the Joel Smi
