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.

Obviously haven't had the best season this year, but similar things to your comments above were stated at the end of 2020 and the next year, they were both well deserved premiership players.

Write them off at your peril I say.

Both, but particularly T Mac have earnt their right to retire or play out his contract whenever they see fit.

Happy for them to go on if they believe they are up to it.

McDonald is fine to go on in my mind, as his issues stem from lack of fitness due to foot trouble. Brown's knee is never going to get better, so he needs to just manage it and play as much footy as his body lets him.

Cool beans Jayden. 

My guess is BBB would be the more likely of the two to pull up stumps early, but I think he still has pleanty to offer us on the list next season.  Even as a depth player at Casey he's got such great footy smarts and character that he'd be a great mentor to someone like Jefferson.

I'd also love to see BBB kick a big bag for the MFC and I recon it's still a possibility if he can get his body right for long enough.

Gawn Dog, can you please explain if we're getting pick 5 and splitting for 7 and 11 (which seems like a potentially good move for us), where does pick 4 come from?

GCS pick 4, which we take through a pick swap of our 2nd rounders and pick 15. Should give the GCS a net 400 minimum depending on what we put up. They’ll need to find at least 1000 pts somehow if they want all 3 academy players.

Problem with Mathieson is that he thinks he's beast mode as well, probably refers to himself in the 3rd person when he talks too.  
NQR AFL standard player, West Coast needs a rebuild, not a re-tool.  Go for Devon Robertson.

Mathieson has a bit too much of Angry Phil Read in him hahaha

Really don't want to lose Jordon. He is one player I hope we lock in. I hear Harmes may explore options and all good - love him and thank him for his service but better opportunities might be elsewhere.

Schache is a no risk tall extension imo.

there's also far more demand for a number 1 ruck now than 12 months ago, Swans ruck has retired, Port cleary don't have any idea who they like/don't like any of them and the cats have missed the 8 and have just lost one of their two 33yo rucks to retirement too.

If that was the case, he wouldn't have made it to FA and 8 years in the system

Anyone who has even managed a single AFL game is a significantly better footballer than me, but in the scheme of targeting who to recruit, Rhys's disposal is ordinary, he's managed an average of 9 games per seasons being in the AF, never playing more than 15 games in one season. So, he still fits in that NQR category as an AFL player. He's a solid VFL player...

West Coast won't improve by settling for players like Mathieson, oh and 'Beast mode' is a moniker that I'd attach to someone like Viney, Matt Rowell, Dangerfield (in his heyday)

I would prefer we blood another midfielder with Jordan’s minutes. I don’t see anything elite in his game.

We don't have one at VFL level unfortunately unless you regard TW, Laurie or AMW as midfielders

I think Taj and Laurie are mids, but they're smaller than JJ.

Laurie was a mid as junior and Woey a wing IIRC. Also we have ND4/5 coming our way - they need a spot to compete toward.

Has Flanders re signed yet?

Not yet. Would be happy to throw Freos second rounder their way if we don’t use it to trade up for another pick in the top ten. Flanders is AFL ready and performing well in the midfield now he’s got his chance. Can play inside or outside and form part of our rotation after our big guns.

John Ralph hinting to Gary On The Couch that the Dees were meeting with Reid.  With North getting pick one it seams unlikely now though

BBB getting his body right is a rather large 'if' given his chronic knee issue. Likely to retire for mine maybe with some payout for final year.

    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.
