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.


Trade Rumours 2023

4 minutes ago, whatwhat say what said:

dow apparently toured sydney hq today

if i had a choice of there of the aints, i know which one i'd go to 

Sydney have a far deeper midfield than the Saints, so it is strange for a player who has not been able to get a regular game and is probably leaving for more opportunities. I could say the same for JJ.

Maybe the contract is fatter.

Part trade rumour/ part trade anxiety: I worry about Petty’s name coming up during the period.

Some murmurings of Adel throwing his name in the mix for McAdam trade (which we all scoffed at) but if you think about it, as a rare, flexible tall who is on the up, I’m pretty sure his market value would be much much higher than his current pay packet… 

Also you’d expect our plan is to groom him a forward to suit our needs… who’s to say that doesn’t suit him?

They can throw the name in all day long - wouldn’t be doing their job if they didn’t, he’s going NOWHERE!

I’m presuming the rumour you heard that had you grinning wasn’t in regards to a key forward then, Nudge? 

That’s the thing, I literally can’t say m, other than fact I was assured we had a clear strategy & that it was still on, I personally took it to mean we knew the player we wanted to draft & that he was exactly what we need or that we’d get another high pick but not #4 as I was told we were cooked on that front even before then!

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.

Agree R(B)G Adams, he represented us in the GF sprint final on Saturday, tall 196cm, lean and has some pace about him. Really hope he puts in the hard yards pre-season and gets a run in 2024.!!

Sydney have some talented midfielders but have struggled with contest & clearance since Kennedy went out of their centre square rotation. Parker can’t do it all by himself (and he’s getting on), Dow would make a lot of sense. He’s a fairly one dimensional midfielder, but just happens to be strong in the area Sydney’s midfield is lacking.

JJ has probably been told he’ll get a good crack at CBA’s as well.

What Dee Spencer said. He played his role and didn't really seek to do anything else. He was solid without imposing himself on the game. He has an unusual kicking style but has no problem hitting targets. I wouldn't say there is any application problem. He doesn't seem to make many mistakes. IMO He's just finding his feet off the back of no preseason and doesn't yet back himself to take the game on yet. We might see a more confident and assertive player next year.

Well hopefully we are a chance.

At least with us he would be 2nd in line, but would certainly get games.

At Giants he is 3rd in line and with WC I am unsure of their rucks without Nic Nat, but know they have Williams, who is more of a fill in. If he is a WA, then I would imagine WC would have appeal.

As long as Fogarty is part of the deal, no problem 

Bit old now. His best, playing for CCR, was some time ago now - though he was good in centrefield.

So, don't put him in coach, he's not ready to play.

Yeah he’s only just turned 16 

In order to be eligible for the NAB AFL Draft, players must have attained, or will attain the age of 18 years, on or before December 31, in the year of draft.

Kalani turned 16 on 5th May so he'll turn 18 in his draft year in 2 years (2025) and he'll go F/S and be a great addition to the Dees.

    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
