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.


Trade Rumours 2023

Not really hearing anything leaking out of the MFC. Hearing a couple of whispers but nothing really solid. 

Heard a couple of people say that they believe Flynn will get across the line to us. I think that would be a good result.

Mc Adam move might be in doubt. No idea why and I do not rate this whisper.

Have heard that the club has a few different strategies in play and that the direction they take will be dependent upon what trades fall early, and not just trades we are involved in.  

Harmes more than likely to stay along with Tomlinson.

I did hear that there may be a key positional switch coming up during the preseason. Will keep the name to myself until after the trade period.

Heard nothing re: Oliver except what has been on here. 

 

 

Rivers to the midfield… you beauty

swans picking up all the second rung mids - jj from us and dow from the blues

Maybe, but every so often one of those second strings turns into a solid best 22 performer at another club.

Still spewing we let go of Toby Bedford though.  He had potential best 22 written all over him, but I think we just needed him to be more patient with oppertities to get confident and prove it at the MFC.

Don’t think there was any ‘let go’ about it - he got a better offer

Clarry has the realistc opportunity to be the B & F record holder in the oldest football club (in the world?).  He also has claims to potentially be our greatest ever player and multiple premiership player.

That's a truly unique status that I find impossible to believe he would give up, even if he doesn't see eye to eye with a particular high performance manager.

Anything to say dazzle & co? What was it, 3wks ago? 
 

need to see final products, but could either be best thing ever and set us up for a decade OR be looked back on as the dumbest move of all time but seemingly Clarry has made his bed. Unfortunately

Picks 2+3 for Oliver & a later pick. 

So North is the club who wants him I assume Nudge given the picks on offer?

Im going to again offer a counter view.

If as you suggest Oliver is untouchable..  no one would have enquired. 

Somewhere... someone... has let a door crack open. 

No one asks about Max, Trac or Jack... but strangely there's a story surrounding Clarry.

Think about that.

Nope, we put word out amigo

I don't think he was a free agent was he?

And if I recall correctly may even have still been in contract.

This attitude we have at the MFC of helping players get to the club and trading low value 2nd / 3rd rd picks or worse for them has its drawbacks and sometimes I think we need to hold on harder to some of these types of players.

With Bedford we'd put multiple years of development into him and he was just starting to show the fruits of that investment and we let him go, what I would call cheaply.

Yep. That’s been the talk! I hope you’ll now understand, had I mentioned any sort of specifics, and it fell through - I’d of liked like a the biggest tool alive and been torn apart and had to higher a new name and I’ve been here since day dot basically so wasn’t gonna do that. Oh yeah, and I’d of clearly been the source and burned my real self HARD, that too 🤣😂😇

You absolutely did not predict this at all re Oliver.

God you speak some absolute [censored].

Throw a few arrows and hope they stick eventually.

Do you know what's the ultimate plans for these picks? Reid and a key forward? 

I remember you posted being very happy about what's to come, can't imagine many people would have thought Oliver leaving would be a part of that.

You're going to stop supporting the club for trading one player? Beyond pathetic. 

If this happens, the reasons will be valid. Based on information you don't have. 

Don’t appreciate being called pathetic l travel 8 hours in a day every second week to watch them play & have been a fully paid member for 35 years, so you can stick that where the sun dont shine

Not saying it’s going happen but if it does!!!!!

Good clubs don’t trade 4x best & fairest, premiership & a once in a generation player

He along with Robbie Flower is the best player I’ve seen at the club.

Good clubs don’t let this happen, they back their player to the hilt, which l expect we will do.

But if they don’t they won’t be getting anymore of my hard earned money or match attendance

The club thinks we are one of the big boys, let’s see if we are & support Clarrie through thick & thin

No I said I left with a grin.. cus I couldn’t blv the balls of it, but all I knew then was it was a key player and love it because it showed me we were prep to risk it all, which I love! But in cold light of day, unless it’s Harley & Walter (which it rly can’t be) even now it’s got my stomach in knots. Didn’t hear Clarry name till the following Monday. Maybe if we didn’t have as many donks as we do here. I’d of shared that it was a player, but I knew I’d it didn’t amount to anything I’d never hear end of it, so I guess ultimately the dazzle donks like adonski & Tremblay win!

    TRAINING: Friday 19th April 2024

    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

    ICEBREAKER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons have broken the ice for season 2024 with a pulsating come-from-behind victory over Port Melbourne in which it took the lead for the first time at the halfway mark of the final quarter. The game played in mild Autumn conditions in neutral territory at Kinetic Park, Frankston, never reached great heights in standard but it proved gripping in character at the end at the Casey Demons overcame the Borough to win by 15 points after trailing badly early in the second half.  P

    MAULED by Whispering Jack

    The writing was on the wall from the very first bounce of the football. The big men went up, Max Gawn more often than not, decisively won the ruck hit out and invariably a Brisbane Lions onballer either won the battle on the ground or halved the contest and they went at it repeatedly until they finally won out. Melbourne managed the first goal from Alex Neal-Bullen but after that the visitors shut out every area of Demon presence around the ground except in the ruck duels. It was a mauling.
