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.


Kozzy Pickett Re-Signs for 4 Years



Recommended Posts

Will NOT get a scrap of work done today. Nothing productive, all day, nothing. Soz, clients, but KOZZY HAS RE-SIGNED! Everything else will just have to wait until tomorrow.

I’m whooping and crying like a crazy person and my son just asked me why I was so happy and did I just win Tattslotto. I said, “Better than that.. KOZZY’S RE-SIGNED!!!” He said “What’s a ‘Kozzie’.” 😂😂😂 Bless his ignorant lil heart!

Great news... his development physically (Look at him now)  and experiences is really clicking this year.  He has become such a dangerous player over the whole field, not jus in the fwd half.

Given how young is still is and talented, the future is bright as he makes such a difference to the dynamic nature of our side.

I didn’t realise it was King's Birthday round coming up already!

I can't begin to say how wrapped i am about this. I just love watching him play footy so, so much.

Already one of my all-time favourite dee's player, only one demon player is ahead of him for me in terms of just loving watching him play, and that's the Wiz - and now he is dee moving forward i'm sure in time i won't be able to split them

Big, big tick to the footy club for how they have managed this situation - and all the other recent big contract negotiations, including Jackson’s - which by the by is increasingly looking like pure genius.

They have locked away not only our best players, but heart and soul players.

Salem, Maxy, Trac, Oliver, Gus, Lever, Petty, Nibbler, Viney, May, Fritter and now Kozzie all locked in (not sure where langers is at contract wise).

Add Rivers, Mcvee and Sparrow all recently resigning and Grundy and Hunter being in the first year of multiyear contracts and we are in fantastic shape list wise.

That is all down to the off field team and is yet another reminder that sustainable on field success is not possible without quality governance and management systems.

Going off the statement it seems like the club involved his family a fair bit in this process which is very professional from the footy club. So kudos to them!

 

And also, culturally appropriate to involve Aboriginal player's families in such discussions and processes (assuming that is ok with said player).

The importance of involving family when negotiation with Aboriginal players (again, with their permission) is reflected in this quote from Kossie:

“The club has embraced me and my family, and I can’t thank them enough for their support. Everything I do is to make my family proud and the respect and understanding my teammates and coaches have shown us means a lot."

Great news. Wouldnt be surprised if his game picks up too now he has no distractions.

Cornes will swing his attention onto the coaches and who will get sacked  first.

He'll stick his fork into someone for sure.

I've never been prouder of this footy club, keeping a list together let alone a successful list is no mean feat. 

In the past there was always that one or two that had to be sacrificed when we thought we had something building. For the first time ever we have literally lined up all our crucial ducks in a row and got them locked away for years to come. This is an extremely rare position to be in and I can't thank Lamb and co enough for the brilliant work they do behind the scenes to make it happen. Drink it all in people!

    TRAINING: Friday 19th April 2024

    They are out for a run just as it starts raining. It didn't last long, ended up a reasonable session weather wise.  Light duties, BBB, rehab Farris-White, Melky, Salem and Spargo, all with private trainers. They are all playing soccer, huge amount of noise. 36-40 (difficult to get a count) in the main squad, biggest I've seen it in ages. Choco is barking out the orders. Goody has intense body language as he observes. Bowey in a lime green cap (no contact), and in the sim

    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.
