Discussion on recent allegations about the use of illicit drugs in football is forbidden
  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    Posting unsubstantiated rumours on this website is strictly forbidden.

    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 issue of illicit drugs in footy, 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.

CONCLUSION: I think we need a CHB, a half back, a wingman and midfielder and pray we don't get injuries to our best 22.

With May getting into his 30s and Petty being pushed forward, I agree we need a new KPP back.

What about this bloke we currently have Jed Adams?

https://www.melbournefc.com.au/players/7416/jed-adams

Has been a bit of discussion on here regarding the development of Jefferson, but realitively little on Adams.  Normally KPP backs can step up and play seniors earlier than forwards, due to them being lead to the ball and only needing to be the spoiler, not the play maker / need for them to take big contested marks.

Do any of the Casey watchers have much of a read on Adams?  He looked great in his draft highlights videos, but all reports seem to have flatlined since then.

3rd in the grand final sprint yesterday!

He had an ok first year. Didn’t get much of the ball and was safe but not all that amazing when he did get it. 

Seemed to stick to the task defensively but there were plenty of times when he was just at a contest but not owning it with decisive marks or spoils. Once or twice a game he would have an intercept mark or spoil that would make you take notice.

In the rehab group for most of last summer though so I expect we’ll know a lot more next year.

Already mentioned that Dunstan, JJ out and Harmes looking. I have serious worries that Gus will pull the pin or be rarely available next season, he is only one head knock away from serious trouble. There is a desperate need for more class midfielders. Rivers is the only one I can see stepping up or recruit a running outside mid as we have enough bulls.

I don't care who we take with our first pick,

So long as that player is an elite kick.

If we don't land a KPF, I'd be taking O'Sullivan. Not sure if he's considered an elite kick by recruiters, but he appears a nice kick.

I think we want better finishers forward centre. Let's see...

@ChaserJ, would you say Watson's kicking depth is much longer than a Charlie Spargo? Seems to struggle from over 35-40m. I was put off by his recent game. And yes, I know, no one should judge a player by one game.

But we love a goal,

And that's his main role.

 

We played a tall, who must have a stench,

As we kept the poor guy, stuck to the bench.

Casboult re-signed with GCS months ago. If you’re going to go to the effort of posting pictures of players you might want to first google their contract situation.

Lol that’s hilarious. Old mate HeartBeatsTrue can’t even get their information correct. Casboult is unsigned for 2024. Not only that he’s an unrestricted free agent. Doesn’t even affect my argument but you’ve got to chuckle at some of these mouthy posters who do nothing but take potshots from the sidelines. They can’t even get their basic facts straight.

VETERAN SUN TO PLAY ON

LEVI Casboult will go round again at Gold Coast in 2024, two years after his AFL career looked over.

 

Who couldn’t get their information straight????

Methinks an apology to “old mate The Heart Beats True” is in order.

JK. Like that’d ever happen.

Oh and there’s medication for people like you.

Hey mate, yeah, O’Sullivan’s a good user of the ball and a reasonably good decision maker, would be comfortable if we went that way. Much surer with ball in hand than Petty (as an example) and could either play key post or third tall/intercept defender.

Overall, Watson’s kicking depth is ok. What I’ve seen over the course of the year is that he can rush his kicks and can be inconsistent by foot.

He can do the brilliant (and does so quite often), but I’m not sure if he puts a bit of extra pressure on himself to do too much to make things happen, but that’s when he can get the timing wrong with his kicks. That’s how it looked in the GF. Eastern’s overall depth and scoring power wasn’t great this year, so understand why Watson might have felt that.

He plays a million miles an hour all the time, if he drops that just a little and picks his moments a bit better, I get the feeling that his field kicking and overall game will be the better for it.

I agree Watson's kicking seemed rushed and a bit erratic in that GF but his ball winning and handling at full pace (and his is fast) was very impressive.

    TIGERS PUNT CASEY by KC from Casey

    The afternoon atmosphere at the Swinburne Centre was somewhat surreal as the game between Richmond VFL and the Casey Demons unfolded on what was really a normal work day for most Melburnians. The Yarra Park precinct marched to the rhythm of city life, the trains rolled by, pedestrians walked by with their dogs and the traffic on Punt Road and Brunton Avenue swirled past while inside the arena, a football battle ensued. And what a battle it was? The Tigers came in with a record of two wins f

    It's Game Day and the Demons once again open the round of football with their annual clash against Richmond on ANZAC Eve. The Tigers, coached by former Dees champion and Premiership assistant coach Adem Yze have a plethora of stars missing due to injury but beware the wounded Tiger. The Dees will have to be switched on tonight. A win will keep them in the hunt for the Top 4 whilst a loss could see them fall out of the 8 for the first time since 2020.

    OOZEE by The Oracle

    There’s a touch of irony in the fact that Adem Yze played his first game for Melbourne in Round 13, 1995 against the club he now coaches. For that game, he wore the number 44 guernsey and got six touches in a game the team won by 11 points.  The man whose first name was often misspelled, soon changed to the number 13 and it turned out lucky for him. He became a highly revered Demon with a record of 271 games during which his presence was acknowledged by the fans with the chant of “Oozee” wh

    They are out for a run just as it starts raining. It didn't last long, ended up a reasonable session weather wise.  Light duties, BBB, rehab Farris-White, Melky, Salem and Spargo, all with private trainers. They are all playing soccer, huge amount of noise. 36-40 (difficult to get a count) in the main squad, biggest I've seen it in ages. Choco is barking out the orders. Goody has intense body language as he observes. Bowey in a lime green cap (no contact), and in the sim
