  • 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.

Not sure his contract was anywhere near what McKays would be.  Frawley went for success not dollars 

Also, if you compare their body of work at same stage, Frawley is streets ahead of McKay.

Was an AA defender and 130+ games under his belt. Roos played him out of position in his last season and he still was one of our better players up forward (a few games of 10+ marks in a pretty moribund fwd line).

Went on to play 100 games for Hawks including premierships. Bizarre that people say Dees were given overgenerous compensation.

He went for $2.2m over 4 years at $550k per year in 2014, which is worth $750k per year in today’s dollar purchase equivalent.

Pretty similar to McKay’s rumoured contract of $800k from Hawks, which he knocked back for less from Bombers, except that Frawley was a far superior footballer.

Exactly the same money and I assume less years for Frawley.  I am very much one eyed but if anyone thinks that the AFL didn’t over compensate us for Frawley than they are delusional

They probably did, but we were garbage too.

However, I don't remember any additional pick, like the 11 that is being rumoured as an extra sweetener and still another sweetener, like Sanders being added late to North's NGA.

Frawley had played 139 games in 8 years when he left us. Average 17.5 games a year.

MvKay has played 71 in 7 years. Average 10.1 games per year.

We lost a lot more for pick 3, than they will lose for pick 3 and 11.

I agree on that point, we didn’t get anything else on top of it

If the AFL do give North 3 and 11 they have gone mad, or are madder than I thought they were.

North have the basis of a good side and after this off season will be even stronger.

8 seasons. Drafted end of 2015. Makes it even more damning that a player has only just made it to 70 games after 8 seasons on a list as he’s constantly injured. He’s also below average when he does get on the park, and at one stage mid year had lost more one on one contests than any other defender in the league. He’s not athletically gifted either. He’s worth a third rounder. He’s basically a less durable and worse version of Tomlinson. It’s mind blowing he could get them first round compo or that any team is willing to pay him more than 200-300k. 

Right you are. I was counting seasons where he got on the park. But considering he’s getting a salary and a list spot, 8 seasons it is.

Love a good trade rumour Nudge but these days claims of knowing someone ‘AT’ the club can be very tenuous. There are posters said to be from the Dees cheersquad in other threads claiming to basically have a direct line to Goody and Richo, so hard not to take a lot of ‘inside’ info on Demonland with a grain of salt. 

Keep the rumours coming though. They’re fun and who knows you might just hit paydirt! 

Gooday Bali, just wondering if you are into the readings of the Japanese poet Matsuo Basho.

North seeking pick 3 compo for Mckay

North seeking pick 11 mid first round charity

North seeking access to Sanders via NGA with a special charitable exception to match any bid 

North has pick 2 

North already has LDU, Simpkin, Wardlaw, Larkey, Sheezel , Thomas and Phillips. 
 

Msybe give them 12 bonus points at the start of next year   
 

ps  AFL response to Dees in 2014 after asking for assistance 

AFL concluded that while Melbourne has a poor on field record in recent times, this does not of itself constitute “exceptional circumstances” or a justification for awarding priority draft selections.

Sick of being the good corporate citizen - Maynard debacle, umpires , heading to kardinia year after year

Anyway, I feel like player compo has gotten very very frothy like 2000 dot com stocks or AI stocks now or marketing company Vals of 5 years ago

Guys, I can let you know that the lifestyle story around Grundy to Sydney is not quite correct. More accurately is that Longmire impressed far more than Hinkley and the two 23 year olds Ken brought to the meeting. 

It is also looking likely that JJ will also select the Swans. 

So, how about we pay 200k of Grundy’s salary for 3-4 years and in return the Swans pay JJ another 200k per year and boost his compo.

It was bizarre for Port to roll out Butters and Rozee. Like does Grundy really care? So strange.

Love Butters as a player, but reckon his chat would be horrendous. It'd be like us bringing Oliver to a meeting.

I’d imagine a ruck would care that he’s joining 2 All Aus 23 year old mids who will be the future leaders of a club.

Could also see the question of where Wines and Jonas are 

Personally I imagine lifestyle is a factor but also the Swans game plan suits Grundy better, as does the SCG

Personally i think West Coast will get getting Daniel Curtin as well, so one way or another i suspect North will end up with Harley Reid 

Over here in WA Adrian Barich who is the Perth Demons President and good friends with the Curtins has said Curtin to North is basically done as the Eagles have all but confirmed they will take Reid with 1 (they've had no offers for pick 1 from anyone, not even North).

Jack Darling to the Dees. Two big years.  He’d be a huge addition whilst we’re in the window. With 50+ inside 50s every week, he’d kick 3-4 goals regularly each week.  Cost ? a future 2nd round?????

So even though JJ is a FA, I wonder if there is some deal if he goes there, that gives us 11.

    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
