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


Ouch!

Not really when you're already paying another elite ruck north of that amount. $1.5m+ out of a $13m salary cap (11.5%) to two ruckman who can't really play elsewhere is lopsided list management.

True bargain is a strong word. However I think having two ruckman in a team is becoming a bit of a trend and makes the team a lot stronger, especially when you have a powerful contested mark in Gawn who can drift all over the ground. We are essentially paying the same as we would for another KPP so I think it will be quite rewarding

How does Collingwoods no deal on Grundy compare to ours regarding LJ? 
 

It is clear they have no leverage and risk busting their cap, but I believe them whereas we could afford to lose LJ and potentially get him to WC but looked like a deer in headlights. 

Did Meth Coke make us a deal for LJ?

I don’t think they did, apart from Pick 2 is not on the table

Looking forward to 2023. Of the $$$ is what is mooted this is great value.

Gawn won’t ever be AA ruckman again and that’s ok. If he can kick 30+ goals and allow us to kick to the top of the square then great. Let’s fashion a fwd line around that.

Are you expecting Max to have 120 attempts at goal next year?

Seem to recall a story of Mark Neeld giving him [censored] in his predraft interview in 2012 and Brodie gave it right back to him. Was just a rumour I think but I’m choosing to believe it and say Brodie is a great guy for that alone.

I'm a bit concerned because since he signed that mega deal with Collingwood he's been poor

Not really. In 2020 when he signed, his form dropped a bit (although not to a ridiculous degree), then in 2021 he had his 4th best possession stat for his career and 3rd best hit outs, and then he only played 6 games this year, so it’s a bit harsh to include this year’s stats.

Max Gawn and Goody wanted this to happen, so i will be fascinated to see, how it all pans out. 
Pick 27 is a steal if Reg Grundy is ready to go Round 1

Filth Supporters are frothing at the mouth, so i am happy about that

They don't have a great record with their champion ruckman do they?  Len Thompson, Peter Moore and now Grundy all left the club in somewhat acrimonious circumstances.  Monkhorst and Manson (not quite in the same league but both premiership players) also finished their careers at other clubs.

    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
