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.

Not overs. For every good pick 2 and 3, there are dozens very ordinary ones who will never come close to being as good as Clarry. 

This is all still very raw but at this point in time I’m just hoping this 2 and 3 know that homemade tattoo guns aren’t a great idea.

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

I remember when we were trading up for Reid cause we won't have many list spots...now we'd be lucky to field a side

No. The list spots was just what made me ask about what was happening, as clearly something didn’t add up, as in something else had to drop first, and now we know — it’s spots to use more picks. It’s not complex champ 🤦‍♂️

Yes, the Clarry drug rumours — are you saying they’re real? Hahaha wow talk about clutching at straws, someone’s getting desperate! So what was the big news then? And how did I know this morning at 8am it was gonna drop today at 8PM?!?! Ur such a fool, sorry u turned out to look like a muppet, but that’s what you get for constantly trying to maximise your own self-worth by minimising others. Enjoy 😉

Clarry out for Reid and the choice of McKercher/Duursma/Watson/O’Sullivan in would be a very spectacular trade period!

Ballsy AF from a club that’s been lamented for its lack of dare for 3 years

And given the ri-donk-ulousness of this forum these days, next time I’ll keep it all to myself — I Mean what’s the darn point when these giblets somehow remain carrying-on even AFTER today. I thought posting this morning what was gonna come today would help alleviate this mess (and cus I was told it’d be out by 2pm, oops 😠) but even still they carry-on like the sour, bitter, salty souks they are. So stuff you then!

No. And I hope not, I merely am repeating the narrative of others. But I like the fact where thinking left field and using where we have a surplus to try and full generational gaps as well as immediate ones. But unless it’s somehow Harley and Larkey, I’m a no. But the conundrum is, that it must also mean those issues re Clarry are real, as in the tattoo, the independent doc. The whinging bout the club etc and part of me says STUFF YOU THEN Clarry, but then I compose and remember it’s likely individuals he’s upset with, NOT the club.

I understand this is your point of view, but I’m asking if your information is that it’s likely that we will trade him if we are being offered pick 2+3 as you suggested?

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 🤣😂😇

So will this happen Nudge or is it unlikely?

All I know is that the current bounty inc getting picks 1, and another top 4, to either draft or use for a KF, be it this or next year. The NM piece was part supposition on another’s part, but it makes sense that’s for sure, and that third party is someone I know wouldn’t mention them if they hadnt been spoken too, but there’s plenty to play out yet. But if I hear anything further I’ll be keeping it to myself, maybe with an anonymous email I can then refer too later for dazzle-digging fun.

If I had to play bookie, I’d have it $2.80 — As the deal would need to be complex & to have MANY parties say yes. Hence why this time of year 90% of what gets discussed is never even heard out in open. But fact club was calling other clubs re Clarry, value, is BIG!

No, pls go back and re read the specific post, I certainly hoped it would and still do. But again, what other big news dripping today could I have been referring to? 
 

my post re the disc I had also when asked, had me respond I’d say it’s more to do with Harley Reid than anything else. But thanks for chipping in 🤣

Ur right, it must of been the other massive news announced today I was referring to! Hahaha you’re literally the most moronic individual I’ve heard in decades, and that’s a hefty field my friend, hefty personified! Anyone who read my original post about something big coming, and that then saw me post this morning — gets it. Sorry I didn’t inc you champ, but it’s because I don’t reveal to much, that enables me to keep hearing these things so if you think I’m gonna go too far and burn all those relationships, you’re wrong! Hoorah 👋🏻

Stepping this out a little, if we nabbed 2 & 3, we could probably still trade for Reid whilst retaining p3. Could a Reid/Duursma double be on the wish list?

How often have we been seduced by early picks and they’ve amounted to nothing more than good ordinary players. 
To trade the best contested midfielder in the game for speculative picks is a hard sell for me. 
Would need an established player involved.

Honestly if this club is now shopping semi-publically a once-in-a-generation talent because of 'attitude issues' twelve months after signing him for seven years our list management foresight is laughably bad.

In recent times we have been good at the draft but the decades before that were at best mixed in terms of drafting and at times appallingly bad. Why gamble what is for what might be?

    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.
