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.

Sounds to me like Petty and his manager got thrown an opportunity and took it as a chance to bring stuff to the table with Melbourne. 

We might need to pander to him a little to try and convince him to stay longer term. 

I took from what lamb said was that the MFC will get his family from sa more involved and over more during next season. 

Imo This may go along way to appeasing Pettys desire to go home.

The main target for us should be to move his partner to Melbourne. I don’t know what she studies or does for work, but surely someone on D’land can get this girl a job in Melbourne.

Ha.. spoken like a true ex copper here Lamby.

No [censored] and doesn't feed into what the media want to create headlines.

What does the reporter ask when Lamb just glares and says “No”.

I just can’t hear it. Why can’t they give the journos microphones?!

Is he actually an ex cop?  Explains a lot if true!

Wish coaches spoke like this more often and just don't feed media [censored].

The Petty stuff still worries me, hope we can get him to settle in Melb.  I Travel weekly to SA so happy to transport his mum's cooking every week.

... any other non legitimate drug operations? 

Based on the posting history of some Demonlanders, reckon we could have a few candidates! Then there are our Amsterdam-based posters and their international network!

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


You must be thinking of a different Russell Robertson!

I suppose it makes for a welcome break from Essendon ‘winning trade week’.

 

I take it back.

Essendon won trade week again…

Port needed rucks and key defenders and got 2 of each and lost Duursma who has been disappointing recently.

Think they did really well.

Bit ridiculous rating trade week in isolation of the upcoming kids draft.

West Coast did very little over the trade week and have an average draft hand.  They are in for quite a few more years of pain.

(not that that’s a particularly bad thing)

 

They could turn 1 into Curtin and 2 more high pick players, so that’s not bad and added a ruckman to replace the non playing Nic Nat and a talented forward in Brockman. 

That’s a good start.

But also worth remembering that Petty is contracted for 2 more years, '24 and '25. No one forced him to sign the contract. Adelaide will be asked to cough up next year if they want a contracted player that we've invested heavily in

On todays Gettable episode they described an early pick swap scenario involving us Gold Coast and North.

Wasnt fully detailed but essentially would have seen North with picks 2, 5 and 6 with Melbourne getting 3 and North's 2024 end of first round pick after giving up 6, 14 and future 1st.

    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

    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. Main Group: Gawn, Viney, May, JVR, Lever, Petracca, McVee, Windsor, Billings, Langdon, Bowey, Schache, Rivers, ANB, Fritsch, Sparrow, Chandler, Kozzy,

    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
