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.

Yes they will have around 14 1st round picks if they add/hold the current selections (11 currently after removing Cunnington and Ziebell). That’s a huge group of talent to develop over the next 2-3 years.  AFL might have to say sorry to other clubs in a few years. They’re good at apologizing 🤯🤯🤯

With GC having:

18: Luko, King (Rankine)
19: Rowell, Anderson, Flanders
20: (Hollands?), *Davies, Jeffrey*
21: Andrew
22: Humphrey
23: Walter, Read, Rogers
24: Likely at least 3 more 

Its going to be fun watching North and GC grand finals in 5 years time.

Welcome to the NMFC Harley Reid 

All part of the plan.

The conspiracy theorist in me thinks back to the remarkable scenario with both the Roos and Eagles WINNING late season games that no-one would have begrudged them losing to secure pick one. In fact they both received some heat for WINNING and risking losing access to pick one and Harley Reid.

At the time felt like a back room deal between headquarters and both clubs to avoid the inevitable tanking fugazi.

Something like 'play games out, win if you can and we'll sort out a draft pick scenario, most likely involving pick three for McKay, where both clubs are happy. Roos you will get pick one and Harley Reid if you want him, but you will need to sweeten the Eagles draft hand so they can get who they want' 

Nothing that has happened since suggests the above scenario is fanciful.

Not a rumour, but would you look at Ginnivan?

With Schultz coming into Pies, could be offloaded.

I think he is a dangerous player, a bit divisive, but…..

I wouldn’t object if price was right.

If he is on the outer with CFC and their culture, then no. He is overrated anyway and played up by the media given the association with Collingwood. He's probably on par with Chandler.

As an aside, for those that think all AFL players are highly paid take note of the offer to Koschitzke!!

I'd gladly hire a make up artist and put a torso muscle suit on for a year LH if someone offered me that sorta coin!

I limit it to a year as i'd probably end up spending most of it in hospital recovering from various things or being conpletely rebuilt a la Steve Austin (actor not wrestler)

Nope he has the talent but not the commitment to be a professional sports person. We already have Spargo and Chandler who I much prefer over him

Tell me the AFL would bend over backwards for North in this matter if Clarkson wasn’t their coach. Laughable.

Look at the excuses they gave for turning us down in 13 and 14.

In fact in 14 we were right in line with North, and the afl said, you’re getting free agent compo, you’ve got young talent (we had stuff all), you’ve traded for veterans (which actually hurt our future) and you’ve got Roos and Goodwin coming.

Would be so easy for the afl to say ‘you’ve got Clarko, deal with it’.

The response is - ‘you’ve got Clarko…let’s help him so he doesn’t quit mid season again’

Exactly what i was thinking this morning.

Amazing what a diff a name (with connections/cred) can do

Trade radio stating Melbourne had "mild" interest in Billings.

Doesn't sound significant and was played down

Billings is the definition of an almost player, almost kicked the goal, almost won the game. If things clicked he would be a great pickup but would anything change if he played for us.

Given the amount of talent the Roos are bringing in, especially in the midfield I hope we are getting in the ear of someone like Will Phillips.

Hasn't quite come on early in his career and if they have so many high draft picks trying to get a game he may look to move.

Good mates with Bailey Laurie as well I think.

It's a good idea in theory but unfortunately he doesn't look very good

Did they stay further whether there was still interest?

Think I read that they mentioned that the interest was there last week, but they're unsure if we're still keen.

Harmesy. 😭😭😭we still love you. Best wishes. 
 

Billings. F&))& No.  
Ginnivan. Absolutely F&)&?!&n No. 

IMV they are not the type of players that we need.  

Ps. The famous Jack Ginnivan “No” gif will reappear if this type of mild interest in such players continues.

For balance, how about naming all the 1st round draftees that GC have lost over the years? Off the top of my head Lynch, Prestia, Caddy, May, Wright, Brodie, and I'm sure there's others.

They described our interest as both mild and bland. Bland referring to level of "spice" for a reference scale. Seem to downplay it as unlikely from my interpretation.

However when listening it did sort of give me Lachie Hunter vibes when his name first popped up last year. I'd still keep a watch for it.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 07 vs Richmond

    It's Game Day and the Demons once again open the round of football with their annual clash against Richmond on ANZAC Eve. The Tigers, coached by former Dees champion and Premiership assistant coach Adem Yze have a plethora of stars missing due to injury but beware the wounded Tiger. The Dees will have to be switched on tonight. A win will keep them in the hunt for the Top 4 whilst a loss could see them fall out of the 8 for the first time since 2020.

    Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin ventured down to Gosch's Paddock to bring you his observations from this morning's Captain's Run including some hints at the changes for our ANZAC Eve clash against the Tigers. Sunny, though a touch windy, this morning, 23 of them no emergencies.  Forwards out first. Harrison Petty, JvR, Jack Billings, Kade Chandler, Kozzy, Bayley Fritsch, and coach Stafford.  The backs join them, Steven May, Jake Lever, Woey, Judd McVee, Blake Howes, Tom McDonald

    OOZEE by The Oracle

    There’s a touch of irony in the fact that Adem Yze played his first game for Melbourne in Round 13, 1995 against the club he now coaches. For that game, he wore the number 44 guernsey and got six touches in a game the team won by 11 points.  The man whose first name was often misspelled, soon changed to the number 13 and it turned out lucky for him. He became a highly revered Demon with a record of 271 games during which his presence was acknowledged by the fans with the chant of “Oozee” wh

    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.
