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.

We really need to poach a decent forward/ruck are there any rumours in this regard, Grundy not working out leave us very vulnerable in that department 

There are basically no obvious decent choices of either forwards or rucks in the free market this year. Makes it a difficult task!

I can see Norf getting pick 3 for the ridiculous contract for McKay, but they surely won't get pick 11 and Sanders. Hard to see why we wouldn't go for pick 4 unless the player we need is going to be there at pick 5. Hope it's not Naughton he can't kick. Rather Petty and Ryan is no way near a top 5 pick 20 to 25 at best.

I wouldn't mind us grabbing the former first rounder Jackson Hately from the Crows. He's now a DFA so we could pick him up for nothing, so he can cover one of our now vacant mid positions with JJ and Dunstan leaving. He's still very young so has the ability to improve exponentially.

@goodwindees Hey mate, any word on Fischer McAsey who retired at the start of the year? Do you know if he's considering making a come back to AFL? a former top 6 draftee in 2019 key forward/defender @ 197cm's and still only 22. I'd love Melbourne to rookie him and see if he can perform better living in his home state of Victoria .

Dante Visentini.... 202cm 98kg forward/ruck at Port Adelaide originally from Brighton Vic. 

20years old contracted till 25 but I would ask the question

I know a lot don't rate him, but i'd be going for Chol, i don't mind what he brings in the ruck and i think he'll offer more as a forward than Tmac and Brown are capable of at this stage. 

if we could somehow work that pick 4 into the deal by including points and future picks that'd be the dream outcome, but unless we offer overs that's going to the Doggies or North

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).

I suggest the 3 year contracts for top 20 picks make both parties more comfortable with these decisions.

To me it doesn’t sound like we are as keen on pick 4 as I would’ve thought? Usually extremely aggressive with this sort of stuff and we’ve been out of the limelight with it, only hearing Dogs and North when it’s obvious we have the picks to do it as well. Wonder why

Surely the rumour about St Kilda trading Pick 12 for Shiel and then get Pick 13 compo for letting Gresham walk to Essendon as a free agent can't be correct. AFL just can't allow it. No one in their right mind believes Pick 12 for Shiel is market value!

We don't know that W.

The AFL appear to be setting it up so they can, beginning with the NGA nonsense.

Not much is allowed to just 'happen'  with the AFL.  So much of it is carefully orchestrated.

Would not surprise me to see the AFL change the goal posts again this week and Norf get all of the above!

Not seeing something splashed on the front page, doesn’t mean it isn’t in the pipeline.

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! 

I don’t know someone, interact with many in the industry as part of my work, as I’ve reported copious times… 

Most of what I hear is from people at other or no specific club at all! There’s a few I know as an acquaintence, sure m! But you’ll find my history succinct on this — feel free to peruse anyone 👌🏻

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. 

Maybe Brodie should just consider which club is the best fit for him to prolong his career, rather than who presented the best. He was similarly impressed with our presentation, and look how that turned out for him.

JJ to the Swans is a good fit and makes sense.

Our future first is on the table, probably with pick 13 or whatever it is and a 2nd rounder maybe for something back. 

The Dogs have a stronger hand and North be even stronger than that.

It’s a lot for what might end up picks 6 or 7 and drafting back to back in that range of this draft makes me nervous.

Interesting insights goodwindees.

Would Grundy and JJ for Swans pick 11 be on the table? Maybe a swap of later picks to even things up.

Yes, maybe the Swans will get confused and not realise they get JJ for free as UFA.

I doubt the Saints will trade pick 12, more likely a 2nd rounder and pay all of Shiel’s contract.

When Shiel’s true value is a 3rd rounder and the bombers chipping in 200k

Essendon will still getting be overs and using that to pay Gresham overs. 

2 teams working together to use salary cap space to create draft a high draft pick. Gross.

He’s like Tomlinson if he played midfield. Hard pass

I don’t know Fisher but if he is, he’ll have to nominate for the Draft between 10 Oct & 13 Nov.  Just because they were an early selection, you have to be a cautious in your expectations.

Riley Beveridge reporting on SEN Crunch Time that the AFL are going to recommend an assistance package to North Melbourne of:

- End of first round pick in 2023

- End of first round pick in 2024

- End of second round pick in 2024

- No priority access to Riley Sanders 

** Pick 3 compensation for McKay is a separate issue. Will “likely happen” but won’t have anything to do with assistance package.

    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
