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 know it doesn't work this way given the potential & hype surrounding Reid but it's a like for like points swap....

1 >  3000

6 & 11 > 3080

You should have stopped after “I know it doesn’t work this way”

Demons have something cooking… had one of the most heartwarming wry grins I’ve seen in a LONG time last night —- in response to a question about how we’re gonna fill these list spots & why were no longer in frame for pick 4 — suddenly I feel warm and fuzzy inside…

 

Lets hope it wasn’t just to perk me up a bit.. keep an eye on the headlines folks!

 

🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

So.... What was this about?

Oh well, if wishes were horses.  Just throwing it out there.

I still think Norf are a last minute chance to to attempt the swap. 

There's also talk of the Hawks attempting it as well but i haven't checked their hand.

The first round picks for a kid?

Pick 33 for a 2x AA ruckman

It's getting ridiculous now. 

Pick 33 for a 29 yo player who spent half the season in the VFL and is no longer required seems like overs.

Without mentioning sources etc, I have been told Shane McAdam and Fogarty has been suggested by the dees for a round 1 selection. No me tion of what pick was to be utilised or multiples

Wouldn’t mind recruiting Fogarty, even if it’s for only 1 game. The return game against Collingwood, get home to smother a Brayden Maynard kick.

If 6 and 11 and F1 doesn't interest WC maybe it might interest NM to trade P3. We can throw in a F2 instead of F1.

I don’t think they will. They want the quality players ant the top end and are probably competing for the same players we are eyeing off.
 

North have been vacuuming players  for the past couple of years and their list turnover is all but complete. For them it’s all about quality not quantity. 

WC however need more players and will need to be enticed to trade. I think 5,14 and F1 is overs but probably what it takes they also need to get over Curtin and do the trade with us 😂

You mean, like, the Jackson trade (pick 15, 6 and 25)? Or a measly 2nd rounder for Langdon. BBB cost us little, too

Cheer up Red!

I did say often, not always.

I seem to recall most were disappointed on DL when the LJ trade went through, with the result. We are lucky that Freo bombed this year, as it could have been 15 not 6, for example.

I think there has been an acknowledgment on DL generally, that we are just happy to get deals done, trying to have both sides happy, win/win. I am not knocking this, but simply stating the fact.

We know how the Bells and Dodoros operate on the other hand, but they also seem to get their deals done too.

I understand that a slightly better pick might not guarantee a better end result I was just making the point on the difference in method.

That is why the Reid swap makes more sense for North & WC imv.

WC would be crazy not to do some sort of deal.  They need a spread and some depth.  They have virtually zero of both at the moment and committing to Reid feels like a miss managed outcome (given where their list is at), even if he's the next Judd/Dusty.

North also get back a player that won't be interested in going home and may be the equivalent (or possibly better) than JHF.

Pretty sure it was about trading Oliver.... which makes me question how that would make you feel warm inside as when I heard I broke down into cold sweats and wrapped myself up in a little ball in the corner

That makes sense from an overs POV

Pick 3 > 2,234

Picks 6 & 11 (plus steak knives) > 3,080

However North would most likely have specific targets in mind with 2 & 3 already.

Also, from what i've read on here and from some scribes, 11 doesn't seem all that attractive in this draft yes?

apologies to RPFC in advance

What is Jarrod Witt’s or big o or similar player (top 5-10 ruck in comp worth)

grundy played vfl because Gawn is better, that doesn’t mean he isn’t worth anything. 

The difference is GC and Brisbane aren't trying to offload them. Required players obviously hold more value.

If we got creative, 10, 20 and McAdam for Petty could be a great investment for the future. Especially if we got a stop-gap player in the meantime.. 

Supporters always fear the worst and get super emotional over these sorts of deals. Only because there's no way of seeing the future outcome of the deal and fear of the unknown is a real thing lol.

But what it'd allow us to do as far as move up the draft again and/or take on a Haynes contract with GWS first pick or something of the like. (the possibilities are many). 

I don't mind it. 

In my mind, we've got to give something to get something to move forward. I rate Petty really highly. But not more than a serious rejig of our list in general. And sometimes these decisions need to be made in order to stay there-abouts over multiple campaigns. 

And if we want to see sustained success, these are the kind of list management decisions that need to happen. Hard one. But if what is reported is true, that's a seriously good offer for one player. 

I'd do it for sure.

I think we need Petty next year whether he plays forward or back - he’s too good to be letting go now.  We can’t afford to lose another key player like that in particular. If we are still challenging for premierships, it’s too early to let him go and upset the apple cart that much.

I'd have a throw at the stumps, but the momentum seems to have switched to WC taking Reid (unless North cough up picks 2 & 3 - I wouldn't pay that and wouldn't think Roos would either).

If WC hold on to 1, we could see if North want to split pick 2 or 3.  Who knows, if that happens maybe North then split pick 6 with Eagles (who would get Curtin) and get WC's future first and our 11 in that scenario, which could have some appeal. North have so many chips we might be able to get something else back in any potential split.

6&11 for 3 to get in front of Haw to select Duursma???

Good idea Jimmy, we could trade away Trac as well for NM picks to really reset ourselves with a bunch of kids who may or may not succeed. 

Im being facetious of course but in my view you don’t trade away really good players to punt on draft kids. That doesn’t improve you.

IMO Petty is untradable this year unless there is some really pressing family reason for him to go interstate.

    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.

    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

    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.
