  • 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.

Fisher is locked in for North.  They have offered him

5 years at stupid money . Fisher is soft as butter and hopefully we don’t go anywhere near him.

A bit like Larkey.

They should be. He's a gun. 71 goals in a bottom 2 side and an AA jacket puts him in rare air. Other than perhaps Curnow he's the best young FPF in the league in my view.

I think it's a bit of a myth that the likes of Larkey and Mitch Lewis are young.  They were drafted in 2016 and Larkey is turning 26 next year.  He is right in his prime in the next 3-4 years, then he will be nearly as old as Steven May who most are predicting to fall off a cliff soon.  North possibly get a tilt at a flag right at the back end of this period.

I think it just goes to show how long it takes some of these KPF to really find their feet in this league, and is also why JVR did such a great job this season.  I feel like he has a great chance to be just as good as these guys at even earlier age.

Why did they have to make a decision on next years picks this year? 

Ask yourself good squire...

By what ethos does the AFL abide ?

Upon arriving at your answer....you will have 'the'   answer  ;)

Makes sense but I’m not sure. It says those two picks can be “reviewed next year.” Makes me think they won’t be able to trade them this trade period. 

Of course not!

They’ll trade both of them and then there’s nothing to review!

Heard a few whispers but do not have a lot of faith in the veracity of said rumours. 

I do like that there is little or no leaks coming out of the club these days.

We know that Deakin Smith is gone...... Dunstan retired..... Hibberd retired...... Jordon 99% out the door as a RFA.... Grundy 80% out the door traded to Sydney? but I think the club would not mind if a deal cannot be done and he stays for another season.

For what it is worth unfounded whispers.....

Harmes is looking at options but I have heard that there is a deal available for him if he stays.

Chandler or Spargo may be on the table depending on the offer. 

Brown and Tmac I have heard that one of the two will retire with the other staying on the list. both have been mentioned as staying and both have been mentioned as retiring. No idea which way this will play out.

Tomlinson will be getting more games next year as the third leg of the main defensive tall trio.

As for drafting and trading...... More whispers.

No real news on possible forwards. We are talking to a few players with regard to this year and trade period next year. seems hard to get a clear idea of who they might be and the chances of getting them. I did hear that we might be going a little left field for a possible solution in looking at a kpp, not necessarily a recognized forward, to cover the position should JVR of Petty go down.

I heard that we will try for Reid but will not sell the house to get him. We have spent a good deal of time talking with him and his agent. I think we will be taking a longer term view of this situation.

Not really a lot out there from what I have heard.

It seems the done deal is Grundy to Swans.

Must be relatively simple if as agreed upon as it appears. Do we not even know what that trade is?

Demonland intel is broken.

I’ll pretend I know something…

Grundy +p24 for p11

Oh. And no chance Nth get p3 for McKay, sets unworkable precedent.

Would happily accept trading Brodie Grundy and draft pick #24 for the Sydney Swans draft pick #11.

If you're suggesting the AFL has integrity and may also be held accountable No.10 ... hmm maybe think again.

Aspects of business culture considered de rigueur for many don't apply here and haven't for decades...

We need to get rid of this irrelevant rubbish on Saturday, so that we can move on to Trade and then Draft periods.

There'll be a relevance spike if Collingwood loses tragically.

    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
