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

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. 

English will be a RFA

Possibly the steak knives from another deal perhaps  ? 

That's probably unlikely, as then it would all have just happened, rather than him coming out and asking for a trade.

It isn't a trade rumour but does fit the broad topic of 'pre-draft shenanigans' 

Looks like Riak Andrew will be falling outside the pick 40 range and eligible as an NGA selection for us.

Skinny, 192cm. I've seen him listed as both forward and defender. Does anyone have more info? Does this mean we'll want to keep a pick 80 in reserve to grab him?

Speaking of NGA, is there any possibility that Gold Coast will decide they've done enough with Walter and Rogers, and might not match a bit for Ethan Read, this drafts designated 'ruck who competes at ground level' type?

I was thinking ...what we will possibly offer Lions.. as probably wont be bucket loads might be something we acquire after an other trade.( not with Bris )

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.

Its the ol club needs x, link said club to every player in taht category you can.

I was thinking of doing the same, for example Dees are in talks with OOC forward or player with one year left for a massive deal..... It really isn't rocket science.

You can spot the fake ones pretty quickly, like Larkey (who has just signed a massive contract with Norf, was never moving) or Allen (who is the next big thing at the Eagles and wont move for less than two high first rounders which no club has).

Really like this move. Exactly the right fit for us. Cheap, young, developing forward/ruck.

No expectations of him being a world beater, but can't be any worse than both Jackson and Grundy have been as forwards for us over the past 2 seasons.

Thankfully there'll be no fan or media scrutiny if he's playing at Casey.

We've obviously been talking with him...has the hallmarks of JT and his band of spies 😉

Wonder who else is on the radar ??

Well..  that's  a need filled ( possibly)

Himself, potentially Adams and Dow moving over to an already pretty deep

Thats an interesting point.

I wonder if the Swans will move on some excess....

Hats off to @goodwindees for dropping the rumor first....

 

 

The guy is a beast. Dropped two legit rumours/facts well before even the best journos caught wind of it.

was thinking the same.  they have decent wingers too.  Hope he's on the sub again, poor bloke.

Although not too late to change his mind?

Sounds like JUH is about to be signed on a 4-5 year deal too. Would be interesting to see if English now sticks around. He would have to take significant unders for the Dogs to remain in the salary cap. It is also probably a sign that they are not going to try solve their defensive KP woes anytime soon.

Wonder if Josh Sinn could be on the move to help Port facilitate their moves? Speedy half back and goof left foot kick. Could release Rivers to the midfield.

Thoughts on Bonner instead as a delisted FA?

Apparently Rhys "Beastmode" Mathieson is leaving the Brisbane Lions due to lack of opportunities.

Is he worth a punt?

I know he is quite an annoying and obnoxious bugger when he has played against the Demons. But he could be ideal midfield depth perhaps?

Here is a link regarding the news story: https://www.foxsports.com.au/afl/teams/brisbane-lions/afl-trade-news-rumours-whispers-brisbane-lions-confirm-rhys-mathieson-seeking-new-home-dayne-zorko-future-deven-robertson-resigned-tom-doedee-will-ashcroft-levi-latest/news-story/c879298a741f3108d362772c99b21843

I totally agree! 😎👍

Would love the Demons to try and have a crack at Josh Sinn!

He would be the ideal replacement for Michael Hibberd too!

Does anyone have an update on list spots?

By my calcs so far it is probable that:

Out - D Smith, M Hibberd, B Grundy, J Jordon, L Dunstan & J Harmes

In - S McAdam, T Fullarton

Leaves 4 spots with the potential to upgrade Daniel Turner from the rookie list?

    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.

    TRAINING: Sunday 7th April 2024

    Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin ventured down in the rain to Gosch's Paddock for the Demon Family Series April School Holiday Open Training session. Not such a good morning, weather wise. As I arrived, it starting raining, settled into watching some Victory players have a kick around. The MFC squad come out as the rain abated, they had wide smiles as the walked down the roped corridor. Plenty of joy from the supporters towards them, kids everywhere, maybe about 500 to a 1000 of us.
