Discussion on recent allegations about the use of illicit drugs in football is forbidden
  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    Posting unsubstantiated rumours on this website is strictly forbidden.

    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 issue of illicit drugs in footy, 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.

I can’t believe that. I didn’t notice it. It must have been just a few nuffies.

As you know I have openly admitted booing one ex player but that was because of his behaviour not just his leaving.

We all have to accept that in professional sport, players occasionally move teams.

That is not a reason for booing them.

I would be very upset to lose Kozzie, but I would never boo him, if he left. It is actually very childish.

I know you understand that it was a perfect storm with LJ, where he had family issues, was offered a massive contract to return home and play for the team he supported and it was just too good to knock back. I don’t blame him for that.

As it appears to be turning out, it may be the very reason for the Dockers poor start to the season and hopefully dreadful year, while maybe handing us a player or two, who will turn out  better than LJ and have long careers with the Dees.

We already have Jefferson and Grundy as a result of LJ leaving with more to come.

I hope Freo are having nightmares over a 7 year,  nearly million dollars a year contract and that they even possibly win the spoon.

Imagine we get say pick 3 and we want someone who will go outside of the first 3, we could be offered even more high picks, while still getting the boy we want.

Compared to Jackson circumstances and how he left, the boo's will be well and truly coming his way from Melbourne supporters.

I thought Baker was only boo’d sarcastically because the Dogs supporters had already boo’d Hunter several times, and at least where I was sitting, there was as much laughter at the pantomime as there was booing.

Time will tell re: Jackson and boos.

One can only hope that Freo are dumb enough to start tanking soon. 😄

Every reason not to.  Not the least of which is the wrath from fans and pile on from the media.

After Freo lose to the Lions next week they are 2-5.

Season 100% over. 

Could could we land with a high pick if we traded?

Yes!

At this stage bottom 4 appear to be:  North, Eagles, Hawks and GCS.  North and Eagles both traded down last year.  GCS might have an Academy player in the top 5 so may want to ditch their first pick.  GWS hold their own and Richmond's first pick.  At this stage both look like being top 10 picks.  GCS and GWS have shown willingness to be flexible in trading top picks, sometimes accepting 'unders'.

Plenty of scope to package our available 3 first round and 3 second round picks.

Too many machinations to guess how we might get to a player we want.

The train is coming into the station!

The only team below Freo that is likely to rise above them is Richmond.  The only team above them that is likely to fall below them is GWS.

Result:  pick 5, 6 or 7 for the Dees:cool:

We need an elite midfielder which we have tried to get in the last two seasons.  Plenty of currency to work with to climb further up the draft if need be. 

Do you think North could also be a chance? I need to check out their draw.

Guaranteed he's going to get boo'd...

It's all part of the theatre and you'll get nuffy supporters at every club who'll go out of their way to boo.

Jesse Hogan gave us much better service then Jacko and there were boos when he stepped foot on the MCG in 2019.

Me too.  At the time we couldn't understand the booing of Hunter as the Dogs let him go, he was happy to stay with them.  So why boo him doggies fans?

A bit of pantomine.  I'm very happy to see Baker having a good shot at the Dogs.  he did well last night.

Round 6: Prelimanry 'What they are saying at Freo'

Summed up by this post:

  • So...umm...where is this "list" that is supposedly good enough? Seems like we need another draft or two to set us up in the long run. Whoops, we spent it on a jack of all trades: Competent in none.
  • Oh but sure, we can trade forwards in from other clubs.....except we're not a destination and have to pay a premium tax as a non-destination club with no prime time slots and we have no [censored]ing capital to trade.
  • And who the [censored] thought Pearce was a captain?!? He's struggling to hold his spot in the side. F.R.O.
  • It's just an endless cycle of abuse.
  • /rant

Other Notable comments:

  • Just imagine the melts when Melbourne walk away with our #3 draft pick.
  • I stand by the Hogan trade ruined the rebuild.
  • Thank christ. After a 6 year rebuild I was really worried we would play finals 2 seasons in a row.
  • It’s ok we are the number one handball team in the league though. 🤯
  • …the players are ******* confused and doing whatever with no leadership
  • Everything was going swimmingly until we named our new Captain and it's been ******* nothing but s**t ever since!!!
  • You could realistically say every single player we brought in is worse than the 1 who left
  • I'm going to enjoy the ride. Another dockery story to tell my grandkids. The time we got ahead of ourselves and gave away all our draft picks for a unicorn.
  • Heading to Brissie next week, can’t wait ☹️
  • It’s confirmed. We’re just making up the numbers
  • Bring back Chris conoly .. at least we used to kick multiple goals in a row.
  • I cannot tell you how irrationally mad I am about giving away our first pick this year.
  • Why the * did we sell Lobb, Logue, Acres, Meek and ultimately replace them with an overage midfielder and a second ruckman. How the hell does that work?
  • Bell is gone. Dale Alcock is a crock and would gladly for him to go. Garlick. Meh.
  • List management will always be the kypronite of this club.

My Favourite:

  • 4ft no neck Bell who stands there with no friends but his ego, you are cancer: OUT

Seems some Dees fans didn’t get the ‘ironic boos just the once’ memo. They booed him more than once. Moreover, they booed him during the player introductions on the big screen, and that was before the match even started!

It was a little game and nothing else. Bulldogs fans had booed Lachie Hunter 10 seconds before so they did it as a square up. That's how I saw it anyway.

Yep, Jeff White got booed at Subiaco in his first game for Melbourne in 1998. It's been happening since day dot.

I get that certain ex players will get boos but the Baker one was genuine [censored] poor by Melbourne supporters regardless what people think of his ability.

In the end we will be better off.

More money to keep Kozzie, a top 10 pick and we have gained something special in a fit all Australian ruck with Reg Grundy.

Freo have stuffed it up big time and won't even have the solace of good draft picks. 

Or maybe we could offer to give the picks back to them in exchange for Caleb Serong. Young Vic lad perhaps looking to come home? He'd look great in the red and blue.

    ICEBREAKER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons have broken the ice for season 2024 with a pulsating come-from-behind victory over Port Melbourne in which it took the lead for the first time at the halfway mark of the final quarter. The game played in mild Autumn conditions in neutral territory at Kinetic Park, Frankston, never reached great heights in standard but it proved gripping in character at the end at the Casey Demons overcame the Borough to win by 15 points after trailing badly early in the second half.  P

    MAULED by Whispering Jack

    The writing was on the wall from the very first bounce of the football. The big men went up, Max Gawn more often than not, decisively won the ruck hit out and invariably a Brisbane Lions onballer either won the battle on the ground or halved the contest and they went at it repeatedly until they finally won out. Melbourne managed the first goal from Alex Neal-Bullen but after that the visitors shut out every area of Demon presence around the ground except in the ruck duels. It was a mauling.
