  • 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.

Have a soft spot for Jesse. He has some unfinished business with us

but he's getting quite injury prone. worth a second rounder maybe. Could be a stop gap while JVR develops

can't see it happening mind

I reckon HE would be keen to come back if we were interested, but the question would be if the club would have him. 

when he left it was as much about us wanting him to go as him wanting to leave

A lot of water has passed under that bridge from what one hears. Due diligence can confirm if correct

Or Jeremy Howe. I think his heart still beats true for the red and the blue. At the very least, part of him does… 
I know for a fact he was wearing red and blue jocks last night. 😁❤️💙

For someone whose heart supposedly beats true for the red and the blue, he sure does love to pot us when he gets the chance.

No, don't get Hogan back and please stick with these ridiculous knee jerk threads seriously enough is enough.

We are desperate for a KPF. I’d be prepared to give him another chance to prove himself. 

Without LJ, a forward line of BBB, hogan and TMac is very enticing. JVR will get his opp as we manage BBB through out the year. 
 

Three talls with proper leading patterns will suit our game style and give us high contested marks in the forward line.

The tigers had similar issues before they got Lynch.

I tend to agree with you but it won’t happen. He went to Freo was poor and they could not wait to off load him. Hasn’t exactly been a dynamo at GWS. Sadly I think his time has past.

CYB he gets on the park like 15 times a year at best. Back issues he'll be managing for the rest of his career and all sorts of other stuff. On top of all that he walked out on us, I do like your thinking but it's just such a reach back into the past for the answer we think we need.

Yep won’t happen. Blood JVR and try for another similar type at draft time. If the reward we get for Jackson is good enough we might be able to pry loose a decent forward from another club.

Nup.

I fear for next year. 

Brown - knee is cooked

TMac -  will be 30

Weid - potentially had his last chance

JVR - will take a couple of years to develop

Jacko - Out the door

 

We are going to have to get creative and pluck a KF from somewhere

Naughto, come on down! (Cue eponymous music !)

Not ridiculous - we are one big bodied marking forward away from being a dominant contender, and from having only lost a match or two this season.

I know Lobb looked pretty soft /ordinary last week but is at least worth a bid, especially if Jackson heads

Leading patterns, simultaneously, good move.

We got BBB with arthritis in the knee and can manage him good enough. I don’t know all the circumstances behind him going to Freo, but it was a bad time for him and he probably didn’t have the right people around him that had his best interest at heart.
 

He has openly regretted it so maybe that’s enough to have a conversation. At worst it’s a massive upgrade on Weid. I couldn’t imagine him demanding more than 400K/yr so would be a bargain.

28 this coming February

Late second rounder and a highly conditional contract with KPI's

Bottom line is whether he will put the work in

Not as silly as it sounds

Took the words right outa my mouth. Not the worst idea at all!

On a serious note, Chris Aitken also worth another look at. Can take a contested mark and has excellent previous form with the Dees, kicking five in the last round of 1967.

David Mc Glashan also who kicked 5 once says hi! Also Tom Flower ditto vs Filth one game in 77 another 5, dead eye goalkicker

    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
