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.

I’ve only heard about McKay as a specific target. The leadership group was consulted and were a part of a pitch I believe.
Other than that, a KF was a priority but no names.

If we can use JVR et al as backup rucks and we have Schache in reserve as an early signing surely Lobb is totally off the radar?

Any interest in Haines at all? GWS are shopping hard.

Perhaps I’m in the minority, but I think he’d be a perfect fit.

With that said, Carlton and the Dees will both be fighting for the top four next year and they may be wary of possibly filling the only serious hole on our list.

Haynes is supposedly owed 1.5m next year.

I wonder if you could talk the Giants into a similar deal with bowes. 

If they upgrade our pick 13 to pick 6, and we take on his Salary given we're opening up some nice cap space

I think this could be a smart move given we're clearly not planning a big signing in the next 12 months, he would at the very least provide some experience and depth and we could take on the 1.2 million or whatever it is for next year which would appeal to the Giants 

we could then dangle 5, 6 and our future first under the Eagles nose and see if we can still prize Harley Reid out of the Eagles

Something says your desire to come up with a deal is overtaking realism  in this proposed trade. 

Why should Melb pay $1.2 to Giants who have overpaid some of their top players for years so they can keep them and now Haines is yesterday's fish and chips wrapper. Just because we want Harley Reid.  There are probably easier ways of getting hold of another top 10 pick and Suns and Cats might be a chance.

And how do you know Melb might not prefer and be ready to throw $1.1 mill at a Harry McKay or other key forward. 

JT and his crew would be all over this I reckon and we may find out any moves over the next few trade days.

You could probably cop $1m for 1 year and Giants have already said they would contribute and then give a much worse pick, say our 2nd rounder, for their 6. I wouldn’t give 13.

I also see us trading picks up and 13 is too valuable for what we might ultimately need to get done.

I am still hopeful of 11 from Swans for Grundy and spices.

With currently 5, 13, 23 and 31 plus picks to come, we could really get into a very good position, for something we had no chance of doing.

After all this we’ll likely lose Jordan, Harmes, Grundy, swap a few draft picks and go to the draft. Feels like we’ve missed Reid and surely McKay’s not going anywhere. Curnow for all his excellence was a complete bust when it really mattered. Carlton won’t ship McKay off unless it’s a godfather deal and we ain’t giving them that……or are we?

I heard yesterday that we weren't even talking with Naughton's management. So not sure where that rumor started. I believe the interested clubs that ultimately led to his extension were Collingwood, Geelong, West Coast and Sydney. Sydney reportedly put in an offer of $11M-$12M for 10 years for his services. That is crazy.

Couple of things mentioned on trade radio this am on the commute:

Concerns that with the deal to Naughton and then English that they might not be able to keep ammara Ugle-Hagan.

Beast Mode Angry Phil Read version 2 - Rhys Matheison may also be looking for new opportunities. I know he can attack people but is he fast? kick?

Amazing how quickly footy is changing.  10 years ago a 5 year deal was fairly rare and breaking a contract was uncommon

No teams just sign their guns up to 7-8 year deals to avoid losing them to FA

and players having 3 or more clubs is becoming not that unusual

Fullarton huh? 200cm fwd ex basketballer

played 19 games for 6 goals.  no games this year due to injury or Lions having too many talls? not sure

Long term prospect and hopefully not the last tall we grab

Can’t imagine it’s more than potato chips. Out of contract, is their 4th string ruck and their 4th string key forward.

With both Tim English and JUH coming out of contract next year and the huge cap squeeze they will undoubtedly had. Which one do you chase? I dont think either qualify for FA, so it will be a Jackson scenario. 

Who do the Doggies chose as i think they will need to make a choice. English is a versatile ruck/forward, who will probably take over the ruck domination when Gawn retires. I cant see many challenging for the AA ruck position for the next 3-4 years. 

JUH on the other hand has really been underwhelming. Perhaps he isn't suited to playing in the same forward line as Naughton ? Or he was just overrated. I think he is the better target to chase as the Doggies do have a excess of KPF stocks. 

So it'll be JUH, Ben King, Cadman all potentially uncontracted after 2024. We should be lining up to land one of these prospects.

If true it's not crazy, it's totally insane. He is not Buddy Franklin at his peak.

    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

    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.
