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.

Does anyone have an update on list spots?

By my calcs so far it is probable that:

Out - D Smith, M Hibberd, B Grundy, J Jordon, L Dunstan & J Harmes

In - S McAdam, T Fullarton

Leaves 4 spots with the potential to upgrade Daniel Turner from the rookie list?

 

Harmes is still a 50/50 to stay/go

Ben Brown - can’t see him playing next year unless he gets elephant painkilling injections each quarter

@Lucifers Hero has a pinned contract thread on one of the boards that has a good summary.

I believe D Turner has a contract that gaurentees promotion to the senior list for next season. The other question mark is if Melksham stays on the senior list or moved to the Rookie list. Either way he can be placed on the inactive list and free up another list spot I believe.

Think we really need to work on retiring BBB, unless his knee is magically healed and Tom Mac who at best will be at Casey all year, in a real sour end to his AFL career.

It would be more respectful to retire them gracefully and go out as senior players with an agreement on contract payout.

Would this give us any cap relief?

Yep been saying this for a whiles.

Tommy can at least get on a park...just a bit slower these days. If he's happy to mentor some kids...great...as he does understand footy quite well.

Benny Benny Benny...  lets get ya fixed up and into the coaching path as i hear thats an interest...  when you're shot...you're shot...look after yaself 😉

If you paid them out 50% of their contracts as an example it would probably be a $.5m saving or $500k.

Imo it is more about 2 extra list spots.

We will hopefully have some good picks  and would want to use them. Melk will probably go on Rookie list or inactive long term injury list too.

I think we will have enough list spots. And why would TMac or Brown not want the $500k?

Darcy Wilson is a chance to go in our range.

Our girls are in yr 12 with him

Son of a gun footballer and mum was champion netballer

Good skills and cross country runner.

Endurance ++ could be used in the high half forward role?

Mid sized midfielder from memory

Any intel Dazzle?

Well there are many reasons why players retire with time left on their contracts.

They may be happy to receive some money and walk away.

They may be happy to end their careers as senior players not has beens. Pride.

They may be in pain with injury.

They may be frustrated at not being able to perform at their best.

They may wish to earn extra money in a lesser competition, with less commitment required.

They may wish to transition to coaching.

They may have business reasons or family reasons.

Etc.

I don't think we will have enough list spots unless one or both retire.

We have Fullarton, McAdam and K. Brown coming, Turner being uplifted, plus our draft picks, surely at least 3 and any other player we trade for.

I think we definitely need more list spots.

PS: BBB, Tom Mac, Schache, Verall and Jefferson makes for a very crowded  Casey forward line, with maybe Fullarton and Faris-White as well..

The real benefit of them retiring would be any cap relief.

I believe the number of players expected to be drafted this year is only around 50-55 and I thought there was some flexibility in the number of players on the Senior List or Rookie List.

We can push our picks into 2024 or consolidate them to go up the draft board with the Suns or Dogs.

Kynan Brown may be one of our draftees or rookies if good enough.

Harmes could leave.

I expect that Melksham will go to the Rookie List.

    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.
