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.

Wouldn't have thought a small forward would be high on their priority list given they had Bobby Hill, Jack Ginnivan, Jamie Elliott & Beau McCreery all playing in their GF team.

He's an upgrade on Ginnivan, Elliot is aging.

Makes complete sense.

Elliot is 31, Ginnivan is looking like he is not 1st choice , McCreery is avearge and a bad kick at goal. Bobby Hill had a great finals series but inconsistent.

I'd take schulze over all of the above @ the Dee's . He is a tough smart forward and just what we need, bummer he will end up at the filth

It’s not done yet, if I’m Freo I’m asking for 2 first round picks.

North would surely offer one of their end of first rounders if they could get him.

No reason for Freo to give him away a year early for anything but massive overs.

Once you put on that jumper you close the door to the Dees!

Is Jackson regretting his decision to leave us?.... wait a minute he's got 900k one dollar bills to wipe off his tears.

Honestly I don't think he even cares that much. He's just happy to be with his family

Schulz a free agent next year, due to delisted free agency. What a mess that covid inspired exception is.

If I’m Freo I’m still holding him and expecting someone to pay end of first round money based on Doedee.

Interesting that 30mins ago Goldstein has been confirmed to make his way to the bombers but no confirmation on McKay. Think they were submitted at the same time. 

Roos have 3 days to match on Mckay and are not matching on Goldstein.

If it's pick 3 though they are taking that and running no? Adelaide didn't match doedee and got pick 19 straight away today. 

Maybe wishfully thinking but perhaps it's not band 1 like they hoped?

the problem with this is that players demand trades and pretty much always get their way

if clubs had the ability to trade players under contract where they so chose, he would - as you said earlier - probably be exchanged for one of north's end of first round compo-for-being-[censored] picks and he'd be there for a year before being able to sign wherever he wants as a free agent

the trade and free agency system in afl is garbage

It's borderline tampering with fair competition, just look at the JHF situation.

Trading players without their consent is terrible, they don’t make enough money for that disruption.

It’s a terrible system. There’s lots of better changes possible.

But clubs do hold players to contracts. There’s plenty who want to leave and don’t make it to trade week.

Freo can hold him or open up bids to everyone else if the Pies don’t come to the party. The nature of the family issues and the Pies keenness to pay up will probably determine if Freo budge.

I think it would be perfectly reasonable to allow a player to nominate a state, but then the team is free to negotiate with all teams of that state for the best deal as long as they meet contractual requirements.

    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
