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.

If we trade 6 etc for 1 how do WC get Curtain? I thought he was a nominal pick 3


Don’t believe everything you read... although if you read my posts you’d notice I’ve said he’s rated about pick 6 all along.

I can’t imagine we are making these moves if we haven’t had it made very clear to us what it will take to get a deal done.

Sweet Garbo. 

You're not understanding. 

This is not about 'rushing' into a trade. I know as much or as little as you!!!! 

Here's what we've heard from the media: Petty has a desire to get back to SA at some point. And Adelaide are hell bent on getting him this trade period and have offered what myself and many believe to be overs in pick 10, 20 and McAdam. 

Now. 

If that is true, we'd be a poorly run club not to entertain this offer given the options it gives us going forward. 

What are those options, (everyone keeps asking me). I don't [censored] know!!!! 

BUT!! 

What I do know is that we already have a strong draft hand. We have a fantastic list manager and recruiter and have an enormously positive track record in this space. 

What people on demonland need to get in their heads is what our future looks like post Gawn and May. Where will our list be? What kind of pain needs to be inflicted now to give us a positive looking future? 

It honestly seems like nobody is thinking that way. 

I don't care if we don't make finals next year or the year after if it means we can have another four cracks at it in three-four years time. 

You also have to look at what that kind of thing does for the growth of the club as far as new supporter and membership goes...

I don't get why people don't think of this? 

You want flags now and only now?!

We just missed out on two golden opportunities. Time to look forward with this list and entertain any and all offers that could benefit our club going forward.

Sometimes I think of this place as being a cult. And Saty runs it. 

Saty would still have Jordie McKenzie, Rohan Bail and Matthew Bate as our leadership group promising that they're improving every pre-season. 

(all the while we'd be bottom of the ladder losing games by 100 points). 

Unless you think Petty has peaked as a player why sell now when we can extract even more value in future years and continue to have a best 22 player on our list, it only stands to reason if Petty continues to improve which is more likely that not we will get even better offers next year and the year after. Crows trying to get him now before his value goes up even further.

Should we get 7 + Haynes as a salary dump, it will be interesting to see what happens with Petty.

Could we realistically end up with 5, 7, 10 and 11? To be partially mixed into a bid for 1?

If petty doesn’t go but we got pick 7 and Haynes

would we offer pick 5 (or is it pick 6?) and 11 for pick 1? Or would pick 5(pick6)and 7 be more realistic you reckon?

Haynes only has the 1 year on his contract to go, so he wouldn't get in the way of a bigger target for next year, if that's what our plans are. Makes sense if they want him off the books. Don't think Petty has to come into the thoughts on this deal

Can somebody explain how we can get GWS 7 and Heynes. I have no idea how that can be played out after our trades today.

The deal for pick 11 looks incredibly one-sided.

So there are 2 potential outcomes we are aiming for from this (potentially either would satisfy us):

1. We orchestrated the move with a deal in mind that will require pick 11 and make the lopsided nature of the initial trade seem irrelevant (see Hogan for picks that acquired May, Steven); OR

2. There is a player we think is very likely to be available at pick 11 that is unlikely to be available at 14 and worth the price we paid.

I think the first option is more likely, but hopefully both are true in case the first does not come to fruition. Chances are that that players we have our eyes on that would have been taken with the 2 later picks that went for pick 11, will still be available with the late picks we hold (e.g. Brown & Andrew)

Funny that I’ve been calling him “Heyne” thinking others were getting it wrong, but I had Haynes confused with a St Kilda reject from 12 years ago.

Salary cap dump by GWS. Haynes is owed close to $1 million next year, whereas we could absorb that but get the good pick doing so. We might have to trade a future 2nd but get pick 7 and Haynes. GWS get a token pick and salary space.

    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

    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.
