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 really don’t rate him. I watched a lot of the Hawks this year, both at VFL and AFL level Koschitzke is just that little bit off. NQR. I don’t think we’ve missed out there.

Mitchell Lewis on the other hand is a dead set gun…

Ah well there you go. Not too bummed we got Fullerton then, who will at least have some upside in the ruck.

Haha damn straight! Is he available!? 🤣

He has never really done anything.  He reminds me of Weed.  Looks like a footballer but doesn’t play like one

If we can go into the draft with pick 6, 11, McAdam, Fullarton, Billings and a backup ruck like Lycett we’ll have done incredibly well.
Billings as wing depth, two potential ruck options should Gawny get sore or need a rest and some x-factor for the forwardline. That ticks all our boxes.
Not to mention some potential gun mids or a move for one exceptional talent. Go Dees!

Indeed.

We used a 2nd and two 3rds to bring in Fullerton, Billings and McAdam. 

Lost Jordan, Harmes and Grundy: depth or surplus to needs. Hibberd, Dunstan retired.

And we have 6 and 11 to use in the draft

I think that's a good outcome

Essentially we've swapped Grundy for Fullarton/McAdam and Harmes for Billings. If we finish higher on the ladder than Sydney and Bulldogs then we've also upgraded our future 2nd and 3rd round picks in the process.

 

+ 500k I'd say overall

Did we win the trade period?

I mean it’s a tough sell to say we did.  We have lost an AA ruck who if nothing else was brilliant cover when Max went down and probably contributed to Max finishing the season in better shape(even with his toe) than the year before. 
JJ & Harmes out for McAdam and Billing’s. Time will tell on those I suppose  but saints aren’t as good as us and they were willing to pay part of his wages to get him out the door. 
Improved pick 14 to pick 11 and paid a hefty price to do so but given JT sees merit in doing so you’d have to back him. 
Put it another way- do you think our list is better or worse than this time last year?

Lycett and other delisted rucks and State league rucks, will be around if we want to Rookie one, as further backup for a year or so for Max.

I suppose it depends on where Verall is at and if he, Fullarton and Schache are sufficient, if Max is injured.

Appreciate the response but wasn't ment to be a serious question. We've done ok but who knows how the future will pan out.

 

We're definitely going to win the draft though :cool:

First time I've really listened to trade talk, and yes I think Lamb did a very good job this year improving our position. Maybe we could of done better, maybe not.  Hopefully there is still more talk to be had before we go to the draft, but if things stay as is I'm pretty happy with #6, and #11.

i don’t mind it. we desperate needed a ruck /fwd and Fullarton could surprise a few

we needed fwd pressure, class and marking in fwd 50. McAdam. Russell Robbo mk II?

And we needed some outside run and midfield depth in Billings

The high draft picks can provide the spark and the traded 3 can play their role

    TRAINING: Saturday 2nd March 2024

    On the eve of the 2024 Season I ventured down to Gosch's Paddock for one of the final preseason training session before we head up to Sydney to take on the Swans. Here are my observations from the training session. The session was light and despite it being a Saturday was akin to a Monday/Tuesday session following a regular season weekend match as we played on Wednesday night and the boys had a couple of days off after the Practice Match prior to the season proper. Main Squad: May,

    ROUND ZERO by Whispering Jack

    The Coodabeen Champions have called it a day after more than forty years on various radio stations across Melbourne. When the lads chose the theme from the spaghetti western "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" as their signature tune, the game was uncomplicated with little time for scientific strategy. Summertime was for easy living and games of cricket, footy teams assembled in February, played practice matches in March and the season opened in mid-April. In their time, the Coodabeens saw changes

    TRAINING: Tuesday 27th February 2024

    I headed down to Gosch’s Paddock this morning for the Captain’s Run in the lead up to tomorrow night’s practice match against the Blues.  The squad that took the field was indicative of the lineup for that match at Ikon Park.  Likely Selections based on the groupings of players at the Captain's Run today at Gosch's Paddock.

    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
