Posting Unsubstantiated Rumours on this Website is Strictly Forbidden
  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    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 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.

My comment and question for the panel - It's a good bet that Judd McVee will get a game early, if not named in Round 1. JVR will surely get a look in at some point in the season. Which other Rookie do you guys think will debut for the Demons in 2023?

Team to Rise: Gold Coast

Team to Fall: Collingwood

Rise - Adelaide

Fall - Tigers

Who will be our defender who takes the oppositions dangerous small forward? The Papleys, the Stengles, the Camerons etc. Judd McVee looks set to debut in Rd 1. Is Hibberd done? I don't think we should write him off just yet but I feel that a big statement was made not playing him in the praccy matches.

This is the greatest time of the year. MFCSS only sets in after a loss.

Teams to Rise: Unfortunately both Adelaide teams will rise. Port will make finals again. Adelaide will probably miss out but they're not far off.

Teams to Fall: Bulldogs, Collingwood & Tigers all in danger of dropping out of the 8. Saints will fall further down the ladder.

Obviously Fritsch comes back into the side when fit so who makes way from the forward line? Chandler?

How do you think we are going to use sub this year? Is it going to be a James Jordan type who can play multiple roles from midfield to up and down the flanks or will it be a tall/mobile type like JVR or even Joel Smith?

Rise - Brisbane (Top 2)

       - Carlton (Top 4)

        - Gold Coast (Top 8)

Fall - Tigers (Middle of the Road)

        - Saints (Bottom 4)

       - Hawks (Spoon)

What's our 'pass mark' for the first 5 rounds of the season?

I think 4 - 1 would be great but maybe 3 - 2 is not too bad considering the fixture?

Following on from the question; What is the pass mark for the season? Top 4? Top 2? Then Prelim Final?

My question would be, who of the young players are most likely to debut this year in season 2023 for the Demons?

 

1) Judd McVee #41

2) Jacob van Rooyen #2

3) Bailey Laurie #16

4) Blake Howes #22

5) Taj Woewodin #40

6) Andy Moniz-Wakefield #45

7) Matthew Jefferson #21

 

These are my 7 most likely (shown above) to possibly get a chance this year of playing in the senior Demons side in an AFL game.

    SCRUTINY & RESILIENCE by Whispering Jack

    If the week when preseason training melds into scratch matches with other clubs, is the first marker for the beginning of a new season, then this has certainly been a torrid opener for the Melbourne Football Club in its campaign to remain a leading AFL premiership contender in 2024. The Demons were already under enormous scrutiny from the media and football’s fan base (including their own) after consecutive straight-sets finals exits, with Clayton Oliver’s well documented woes, the Joel Smi
