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.

Why is Bailey Laurie under uncertain future when he's contracted for another year...

DD36. I think after 3 years there may be some clubs asking the question and maybe some offers for him. Seemed to again not take opportunities but limited chances really. Agree it’s not likely but I’ll rate still as a possible.

Had a good look at Duursma in tonight’s game. Just no. I remember him being the best out of the lot of the youngsters they picked up in the 2019 draft. What happened to him.

Lack of continuity is really hampering him. Burst on to the scene playing some decent footy (probably got up to pace faster than the other 2) and pretty much playing the same level 4 years later. 

If you got his body right there’s still a combination of pace, endurance and contested ability (especially overhead) to make a good footballer. But with constant set backs his ball use and decision making is a mess.

Just can’t see how you’d be brave enough to offer Port the required trade capital to get him when contracted.

Seen some articles indicating Duursma at Port is gettable for the right price. Would be a great addition and we may be able to work something out with Grundy in play. Kind of player we sorely need. 

We're you watching Saturday night, Duursma is f'n hopeless.

Highly likely. Hibberd to retire. x ANNOUNCED 

Highly likely. BBB to retire  x

Almost certain. Dunstan - delisted x

Unrestricted free agent  James Jordon to go x .           I think he’ll look at offers and look to get more certainty and support like Bedford did.

Saddens me but ??? Gus… will have to reassess his health and well-being for his future ☹️ 

—————————————————————-

Probable. Harmesy to stay one more year. 🤔
Probable. Melksham. One year deal. 🤔
Possible   TMCD to obviously consider retirement though he’s internal determination means he’s likely to give it one more year   🤔

Unclear  Kye Turner   Last man added in February. He looked ok at Casey but not certain he could step up   Given Tomlinson likely to move on, he might stay as backup key defence  🤔

why? Signed Schache to one more year 🤯

—————————————————————— 

Trade options for Dees. 

1. Grundy  - obviously the talk is there and it will have to be explored   x

2. Tomlinson - not given chances by Goody so like Hunt/Bedford , he’ll likely select to look elsewhere x

3. picks to trade up. 5,15,24,34  

—————————————————————-

probably 6-7 players to add to the list. 

Shane McAdam trade in 

Kynan Brown father son 

3 other youngsters 

additional ready to start player - trade or free agent

This is what kills me, I think Gus hangs them up and I was on the fence about pursuing Harley Reid but I think if we lose a gun mid nose the time to grab one even though they aren’t like for like

Laurie in my view is a long way from AFL standard very poor choice

What rumour?

Got his opportunity in a big final. I'd be very surprised if he leaves.

ANB, Chandler, McAdam, Woey, Spargo, Harmes, Howes maybe, AMW and Laurie. Kynan Brown and maybe another coming in.

Seems a bit top heavy and Laurie is the one that might leave if a trade could be done. 

I still think Deakyn Smith could play HF or HB. I think he can make the step up. Would love to see him get a chance, maybe as sub against a weaker side next year.

latest rumour mill on sen:

  • grundy to swans with pear pulling out of the race
  • jj to aints as a free agent
  • harmes and tomlinson on the market
  • we're chasing early picks 

JJ to Saints makes sense for both parties I reckon.

agreed

do we get any compo? or none cos he's effectively dfa?

We'll get compo, he's now classified as an UFA due to being delisted previously.

Can't imagine it will be anymore than a 3rd rounder.

Having said that, I do wonder if there's compensation if saints offer him a base contract of like 2yrs x 100k. That may not trigger compensation.

    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
