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.

You're implying the other argument is wrong because the MFC will do what's right by Grundy. Fact is they don't need to, they can keep him in the VFL for 4 years.

Im not speaking for the MFC and what they will do, but the argument keep him in the VFL has merrit becuase if that's where the MFC sees teh best value for him so be it.

you're correct in your point though the highlighted point is a small detail. I would argue the contract holds the most weight in this argument.

 

If you’re going to fix the ‘grammer’ you might want to do the spell check too…

And, no, the ‘keep him in the VFL’ argument does not have merrit.

Unless ‘merrit’ is a small woodland creature or something.

The club have always tried to do its best by its players. It’s called being a club of choice. Long term reward for treating players well, and creating a culture within and outside the club. 
 

Keeping Grundy is a lose/lose situation for all involved. 

At the end of teh day the club will do what it thinks is best for both. Don't lose any sleep over it.

Doesen't mean the other side of the argument is wrong.

It begs the question, why did he sign in the first place? It's probably safe to say we don't know what's going on and listening to the media holds as much weight as everyone elses opinions.

Well that would be plain stupid and unprofessional. 

We have always acted professional in the way we've accommodate past players in either looking for a fresh start or seeking a trade.

It's why past players leave good terms with the club.

You’re right CS. The club will do what is best for all parties. 
 

Recent history says the punitive route will not be part of anyone’s thinking.

I have said my bit, you’re the one with only nonsense to add. 

I agree your argument is weak, I didn't lose any sleep over it.

I have no issues with that argument, and I agree it's good leadership.

My point was in relation to others saying it's wrong to keep him in the VFL.

I'm not communicating about the actions the MFC might or should take. Fact is if the MFC decides Grundys best value to the club is in the VFL there isn't much apart from bitching publically he can do.

Argue the right or wrong of the decision all you like but clubs in the past have kept players against their will. It's not an unrealistic option.

If he seeks a trade i think Melbourne will happily accommodate that for him.

Lobb's a spud, I'd happily take Lynch for $700K for 2 years

Had had more injuries than most in his last 2 years and lucky not to be outed by the MRO a few times. Would put him on a games played base contest with bonuses for 3 years and tske a chance. Or pay $800 per year for 3 and upset all and sundry.

Cheap Seats does remind me of those woodland creatures. 
 

And yes, I have seen that episode…

Haha yes, sorry you're a victim. It's not personal.

I assume we're done here so I'll let you kids go back to imagination land.

[censored] they should have played Grundy tonight. Tmac offered zero. Grundy would have at least pinched hit in the ruck.

Agree, I thought the McDonald move was correct but he was even less mobile than I thought he would be.

Also, I prefer him taking centre bounces over Gawn.

Grundy is going to get a chance to show how valuable he is. JVR will get at least a week and maybe more. JJ is now a must to come in as well.

I said it in the pre game, the podcast, everywhere. I did not want this afterthought on whether we could have used Grundy or not.

Don't think it would have been a massive difference but geez.

I'm not sure it would have been a big factor either, although being able to throw Grundy into the ruck in the first quarter, when Cox won the first 9 hit outs of the game, could have shifted the momentum and kept us closer at quarter time.

Whoever lost tonight were always going to look at selection and say what might have been.

    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
