  • 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.

I reckon picks will get it done if we want it to. We have a top 5-7 pick, another late first rounder, two seconds and a future first, that's enough capital, along with what North already have to revitalise their list.

Larkey is 26, a long term deal with us gives him the chance to play finals.

North are having 9 first round picks over a 3 year stretch and Larkey is happy there. He’s not going to move. They’ll improve next year, win at least 10 games if not play finals in 2025 and be a finals lock from then on.

Plus what are North going to do? Draft Nate Caddy and hope in 3-5 years he’s good? They’d be mad to get rid of a key forward just for more picks when they’ve had a stack and got more coming.

The talk of Larkey is fantasy. If we land a coup, it’ll be Ben King or Aaron Naughton. Both will cost us plenty.

Would be a small drop in the ocean if it leads us to another flag though. We are in contention now, strike while the irons still hot. Go all in and bring in talent that will help us for the now

Even fake accounts can strike gold sometimes. ;) What if we offered more than 6 years? We have draft capital to offer North and cap space to offer Larkey. We're in a rare position. Who knows.

And didn't even realise it was a fake account. At least I'll acknowledge a fake rumour compared to old wink wink over there who'll claim it as is own.

On Larkey, you don't sign a huge 6 year contract only to then turn around and speak to other clubs 5 minutes. He'd be nearly on a million a year so money wise he's set at North.

C'mon mate, even you're smart enough to think that's absolutely absurd. 

If this was Petracca or Oliver doing this you'd shut it down as nonsense.

You might find this interesting because at this stage I don’t believe the media even know about it.

As strange as it seems, Taylor Adams from the Pies has contacted the Swans himself to discuss their interest in him moving there. Wants to play more midfield and clearly feels he’s not getting the love from the Pies. 
 

Totally separate to this, my sources tell me that Callum Mills has badly damaged his shoulder/collarbone in a mad Monday wrestling match and will miss a major part of preseason. Apparently Longmire was as angry as he’s ever been after hearing about it. 

@goodwindees strikes again

Brody Grundy. Not equivalent, but not too dissimilar

Stranger things have happened Dazzle!

Barry Prendergast.  He drafted guys who were rated at the time.  The development was horrendous. And a few had injuries like Blease who badly broke his leg before he started and Strauss who took a little while and just as he was beginning to look like the standard he busted his leg too. And then there were a few big misses.  A very forgettable time.

I have forgotten alot of things from that time period but never the name Barry Prendergast.

Etched into my brain for all the wrong tormenting reasons.

Entice Taylor walker to cross on a 2-year deal. better chance of a flag before he retires (although i tip the Crows to play finals next year)

We already went after Walker and Fogarty 2 years ago especially Walker and were politely declined.

Online article on the Herald Sun website purporting to have the "latest" on Petty. Can't access it.

No SA homecoming for Dees

Melbourne will rebuff Adelaide’s attempts to secure star duo Harry Petty or Tom Sparrow in the Shane McAdam deal.

The Crows are keen on a ready-made quality player in return for McAdam, who turned his back on a fresh deal at Adelaide to join Melbourne in the exchange period.

But the Demons will likely offer the Crows a third-round pick or low-round pick swap in the McAdam deal.

Melbourne’s top priority is to secure adequate compensation in the trade for Brodie Grundy to Sydney, such as a second-round pick.

Article on sen in regards to suns pick 4.

“It will be changing hands. Whether North can compete with the Bulldogs remains to be seen, or whether North pivot and go for Melbourne’s first pick.”

Swear afl journalists have such a poor understanding of the trade and draft period. In what world would we accept pick 14 and 19 for a top 5 pick. We don't need points and 14 and 19 will become compromised by at least 4 academy and f/s selections. Would roughly look more like pick 7 for 18 and 23.

It was quoting Sammy Edmund.  I listened to the segment and thought he meant to say West Coast, but said Melbourne.  He might have just had Melbourne on his mind, because he also suggested Dees could still have a go at Pick 1.

That said, if Roos would still like to take Sanders, they could probably split pick 2 (or a band 1 compensation pick for McKay) with us and still be pretty certain of getting him with our pick from Freo (would be independent of whether they land pick 4).

Maybe they are looking to split their 2nd pick? NM Pick 3 (McKay comp) for 5 and 15. They can then use their first rounders and chase GCS and end up with 2, 4 and 5.

They're just generating clicks, there is little to no real news ATM.

I mean props to Adelaide for trying but they’re wasting their time if they thought they were getting Petty or Sparrow for McAdam.

    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
