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.

Jeezuz he can run all day, take a mark and is an excellent kick to boot, Tim might have done alright with this one. Just need to get him in with the boys and get his head straight and look out in 2023. I trust our FD to get Lachie firmly into the fold.🙏💕

I simply don't get it. He is an accumulator, but I have rarely seen him have a big impact, and I don't rate him much at all. Feels so much like the Dunstan trade of last year. I suppose on the + side, he is a left footer and has experience on the wing.

He seems like a small improvement when we have a heap of talent stuck at Casey, who can already provide what he provides (experience aside).

It’s really simple - he is a top shelf kick & classy outside player. Something we are badly missing. Both in the AFL + VFL teams.

Dunstan is a poor kick, and we have heaps of players that have similar strengths to Dunstan - hence why he is just depth. 

If Hunter’s attitude / off-field improves (as it sounds like it will need to) - then the opposite wing to Langdon’s is his every week. With flexibility of moving him to hbf or hff when we want.

Oskar Baker?
Chandler who’s just a guy and not a wing
4 touches in the grand final Howes 
8 touch Laurie 
The honest but young and limited Woey
 

Who are these talented players we have at Casey who can provide what Hunter can?

He cost us a future third pick, why wouldn’t they?

Most Demonlanders have lamented our forward 50 entries. If Hunter plays wing or high half forward you'd expect those entries to improve. He's also a very good mark. He's been one of the best wingmen in the comp for a long time although since his drink driving incident and his broken hand he's been a bit on the outer at the Dogs.

I think the comparison with Dunstan is a bit unfair. Far more highly credentialed footballer.

I rate him highly as a footballer and especially as that outside winger we need, but I’ve heard some horror stories about his off field behavior , which I’m hoping are all behind him.

Hunter and Langdon would actually be too small and outside for a wing rotation for my likings.

I’d use at least one of JJ, Harmes and Gus on the wing and have Hunter play half forward and 3rd winger if he was super fit and defensively switched on. Would even consider some on ball time, possibly post centre clearance with Tracc. We need skilled kickers on the inside not just the outside.

But it does let us shuffle players forward, back and on ball 

"Too small and outside" are not your likings DS but that's not true. 

Value  of Lingers and Hunter is the outside run maximising the ground  space and both are about 185 cm ie 6ft 2" and can run all day.

Hunter is very good disposer also advantage of lethal left foot. He can play in HB and HF as well. He is a slightly more polished Mitch White. 

Schace the steak knives !!

Brodie the hero ! 

Good recruiting Tim.

    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
