  • 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.

You know the drill. If someone gets this quicker than the time it took me to put together, I just might lie about it.

Funnily enough, these players have something in common. My apologies if this (theme) has been done before!

PM the answers (this means you Lampers). The prizes are phenomenal.............. and fictitious!

On ya bike and bring on season 2023:

Mitch Hahn     Stef Martin     Jay Lockhart

Chris Scott     Henry Playfair   Ted Richards

Adrian Battiston.   Jacob van Rooyan    Ed Lower

Tyson Stengle    Tim Membrey   Jayden Hunt

Aaron Naughton.   Brendon Favola    Billy Brownless

R: Michael Gardiner   Cam Pedersen   Cam O'Shea

!/C Callam Sinclair   Liam Jurrah   Jarrod Berry   Kayne Pettifer

 

PS - There's no clue in any of the above, hence the name 'clueless quiz'

Welcome to the Setters Club, Roger!

Though I'm wary of a double bluff in your 'no clue' spiel...

Thanks TRAB! I'm honoured to be part of the club, but there are definitely no single or double-bluffing clues. I can even confess, the bench is nothing more than a typo - should be I/C not !/C.

Go Dees

A clue, perhaps?

I'm thinking it's something 'straightforward' given Roger's concern that it might have been done before?

Not all previous quizzes have been straightforward though. Anyways, I think I might have it. Just gotta make sure before I PM Roger. The podium beckons!

Time for a big clue or the big reveal, @Roger Mellie?

Thanks for keeping these alive, Mr Stone 🙂. I'm tempted to clue, but @Roger Mellie should have first (and last?) go at that, I think...

Alrighty then.

Sam Gravenall coached Essendon for only 12 games in 2022. Albeit from a small sample size, Sam's win/loss record is behind only Craig McCrae's, Chris Scott's and John Longmire's, of the current crop of coaches. But it is another, unique, aspect he brings that qualifies him to front @Roger Mellie's team.

He made a comeback 100 years after his first coaching stint?

Oopsies!

(Though might Bombers fans be looking over their shoulders for a similar 'Second Coming' in 2115?👼...)

Every time I come back to this I give up within 2.5 seconds. 

My first reaction to this, layzie, was, 'Funny you should say seconds!'

Meanwhile, though, let the world know your quizophilic persistence has just paid off in that other still-live conundrum 👏

But a bit more 'clueing':

Four ' @Roger Mellie ' emergencies were named at this club's selection table on the Thursday night: Jason Johannisen, Jeremy Howe, Jarrod Molloy and Kyle Cheney. As noted, Johannisen became the medi-sub.

In this expanded squad, Roger's selection of Jayden Hunt becomes unique.

And in another way, I've just noticed, Roger's selection of Ed Lower is unique.

    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

    Clayton Oliver was integrated back into the main training group today for the first time in 2024 after completing a 2km time trial. FriendlyFellow, a new Demonland Trackwatcher hit Gosch's Paddock on a hot and windy morning to bring you his observations of the session. Disclaimer: Saw on the socials they were down at Gosch’s Paddock so headed down for a quick look.
