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

I don't think it's about being seduced by picks this time mate. It's about maintaining the culture that the club has tried so hard to foster, and maximising what is a dreadfully sorry and sad situation. 

Clarry is my favourite player, I'm devastated. But we've got the picks this year to work a deal that could rejuvenate our list.

The other thing not being talked about is the potential dramatic impact not having Clarry in our midfield will have on our game style. 

Collingwood have shown you don't need an elite midfield to win a flag. They've bucked the trend in that regard.

I trust JT, Lamb and the broader club to do what's right for the MFC here.

As gut wrenching as that is. I suspect many of us are so strongly bonded to Clarry because we waited so long for an elite midfielder and then we got him, he helped us win a flag and now here we are...

After experiencing success I now understand how hard it is to be constantly looking through the windshield as opposed to the rear view mirror as a footy club. It is not popular and sometimes it hurts like hell, however you need to do it if you want continued success. 

I have no idea right now if keeping or trading Oliver is the right move in the long run, but I trust our FD 100% to do the right thing. No-one is bigger than the club and despite how players felt in the past it is a privilege to wear our jumper again.

Pretty concerning that we were happy to put a statement out saying Tonlinson was a required player but it's been 24 hours since this news broke and still nothing from the football club..

Perhaps no comment is an indication of our strategy?

Which I hope involves giving clarry a massive rocket and wake up call.

Like every dees fan I would be shattered if clarry left.

But there was plenty of publically available evidence of lack of professionalism on his part this year.

Applying the iceberg principle there was no doubt more stuff not in the public arena.

Another year of distractions could torpedo next season and beyond. For goody it is all about creating a team that is contention every year. Culture underpins that goal.

Crossroads for clarry me thinks.

I was absolutely against trading out Watts. But I acknowledged the club had all the info and respected the right of goody to make the call. And hard to argue it wasn't the right call.

I'll put my trust in the club to make the right call again.

Trade radio saying that a senario where pick 4 and a later pick might be enough for a trade with Clarry

Then 4 and 5 used towards pick1

We might have a few in tears on this board next week

Cal Twomey is saying multiple first round picks.

I hope Reid not only has what it takes to be a great player, but is also prepared to deal with the enormous pressure of coming into the club off the back of Oliver being traded. Those are some big shoes to overtake. 

 

Might as well give him the number 13 too just to make the link stronger 😂

Gold Coast? Would leave them in a tricky spot with draft points.

If he's out the door I'd take pick 4 and Ben King though.

The Pies don't win a flag without De Goey, who's had a dozen more off-field transgressions than Clarry. Instead of cutting him loose. they freed up salary cap space to re-sign him by trading a solid citizen in Grundy. 

If the alleged off-field issues with Clarry are true, then it's up to the club to deal with it. You don't trade away a proven generational talent for draft picks when you are still in a premiership window.

Oliver isnt DeGoey. I think DeGoey is more like Trac. The Pies don't really have a Clayton type player.

Their trading forecasts are mostly laughable. They’re just looking for a segment to fill time and to bait people for conversation (which again fills time).

His trade value will be determined by the perceived ‘severity’ of his issues (which the guys at trade radio don’t know yet) and how much of his salary Melbourne are prepared to pay (which they also don’t know yet).

I am not a list manager but my guess is if Melbourne’s plan is to snare top end talent in the draft they might be prepared to pay some of his salary for a fee years to maximise the trade return but if the plan is to go after a tier 1 KPF then we’ll be less willing to cover any of his salary and the return will be a fair bit lower

Is it? Unless we’re happy for it to be known we will listen to offers. There’s no obligation to make a decisive move, but I’ll now be very surprised if we don’t. 
It’s consistent with our approach, not being afraid to make bold changes. I’m sure it won’t be done without due consideration.

Wasn't necessarily Oliver to GCS for 4 plus, but a scenario that gets us pick 4. Could be multi club deal

Bailey Humphrey too and we give future first and later 23 picks to help them with points for academy players

Agree with this - club LOVES Humphrey. He did sign during the year though and appears happy. Would be an unexpected twist for him in his early career

Tom Morris is Saying clubs knew of Oliver situation days ago and senior players at those clubs knew.

Now saying the lure back to SA for Petty is big, maybe not yet but the lure home is real for him.

He’s not from Adelaide. He’s from a town like 500km away.

    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.

    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

    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
