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.

I think we'll be able to find a spot for him in our forward half just quietly.

McVee May Lever

Salem Tomlinson Rivers

Langdon Oliver Hunter 

Petracca Petty Fritsch 

Pickett JVR Reid

Gawn Viney Sparrow

Brayshaw Neal-Bullen McAdam Bowey

Smith or Howes for sub.

Chandler misses out.

2 drafts since the 21 flag, which trade deals have improved our list?

2021- Dunstan x 5 games retired 

2022-  Grundy gone,  Schache x 2 games , Hunter only player getting a regular game…

How has our list improved comparing  this to Collingwood & Brisbane??

Spargo, Chandler, ANB, Hunter and Smith for starters.

Hibbo and JJ who have gone.

What do these players all have in common?

None finished in the top 10 of the bluey.

Hold on that's not the case.

Having finished 9th last season, Nibbla finished 6th this season.

Schache and Dunstan were never more than depth. Look at the price paid.

Grundy rucked alone, while Max was injured and it was more Max who failed than Grundy. Grundy was meant to ruck more with Max forward and because Max couldn’t play forward, they wanted Grundy to. That wasn’t the intent of getting him. We got back what we paid, it was 1 year and we move on.

Plenty of clubs bring in players who don’t consistently make their side. Often they are depth players.

We certainly have had recent success trading which led to a flag, getting Langdon, May, Lever, BBB, Hibberd and Melksham as examples.

Likewise not every draftee will be successful.

It is par for the course, hits and misses. The big hope is that the misses aren’t expensive.

    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
