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.


Farewell Brodie Grundy

They will need two 2nd round picks, so maybe something like:

Grundy and pick 27 to swans for Roos future 2nd round + pick 46

I'd do that personally

 

I was hoping we can get a 2nd Rounder this year and package this to GC for Pick 10, otherwise I dont mind it.

No, that is overs by a long way.

Future picks don't need to come into this.

14 and Grundy for McLean is a very good deal and a win win for both teams  as they both get something they really need.

They treated him like [censored] why would he stay for  more of the same?

I am waiting to hear his story when  he wins a flag  with the Swans or maybe what May says about him next year

I am even more looking forward to what folks on here say about Tom Hawkins if he kicks 5 in the G/F to seal  the flag for the Dee's next season.

I season at $600 000.!

Can someone remind me of the usual number of players taken in a draft. IIRC it's between 50 and 60 but I could be wrong.

Pick 44 if so is at the wrong end of the barrel especially when it's around 49 allowing for concessions

actually 44 probably becomes <44 because of all the multi picks for f/s and academy players beforehand

Rubbish source I know but on SEN this morning there was talk of the AFL agenda items and that the 5 man interchange was in the mix again. 

If this comes to pass, I'm keeping Grundy. That gives us the flexibility to effectively run with 2 first rucks.

Club needs to get a look at the AFL crystal ball before we shunt him off

Is holding on to Brodie a realistic option? Can whatever was broken be mended? 

Great question.  Answer TBA

MFCSS tells me that the AFL will wait to see what we do before announcing anything.   If we part ways they will extend the interchange: if he stays they will change the rule that no ruckman can ever be named on the interchange. 🙄😱MFCSS +

 

PS straight swap for Guerdion (?spelling) would be ok 🤗🤗

If you want someone that badly do you offer pick 46?

They know we want to offload

Could just be poor negotiating on their behalf. Softening us up in the hope we accept pick 33 later

Grundy done for 46 and future Sydney 2nd rnd pick 

 

Haven’t done the maths but probably similar value to the pick 27 we paid for him? 

Currently leaves us with 6, 11, 41 and 46 for this year, with our own future picks, Sydney’s future second and Dogs future third 

A bit to play out yet…

A future 2nd is in the 20s, if Sydney struggle next year, or the 30s if they do well. 

I’m comfortable with it given we clearly didn’t consider him part of our future.

And so ends one of the more interesting player trades we’ve engaged in. I reckon Grundy will do really well at Sydney, and I actually hope he does.

  • Demonland changed the title to Farewell Brodie Grundy

He’ll do very well at Sydney, they again will be right up there in the mix to win a flag.

What debacle it has been since he arrived at the club, getting him was not the issue (replacement for Jackson) but what we did (and didn’t do more importantly) with him while the team yet again went out in straight sets was a disgrace.

We had Petracca in the ruck while Grundy sat in the stands.

    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
