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.

Super keen to see this kid play at this level. Hope he brings his competitive spirit, air or land. 

 

Good to see the number 2 back on the ground

 

Hopefully I hear "go number 2" from someone in the members

I assume you mean the MCC.  If so...

"Hey old chap, who's that no.2 ?  Like the cut of his jib"

"Von Royalstein, old bean. From the Continent, or one of the Dominions, I believe. Funny, though; he's put on an inch or two. And looks dapper with that head of hair now. Glad he's dropped the anonymity: 'Jones'; so obvious!"

Ooh Steven Armstrong would be a nice surprise with the WA connection!

I reckon No 2 holds more meaning to MFC supporters than even the No 31. It's a heavy number to carry on your back

It really is.

And it is a massive honour to wear it. I hope Jonesy hands him his jumper. If he can give our club half as much as Jonesy did, he'd be doing extremely well!

Major League Baseball in the US now gives players a special patch to add to their uniform when they debut. It's all about the collectibles market. I expect the AFL will eventually follow suit.

 ....just wait for the commentators to stuff up his name

Of course they'll stuff up his name.  Commentators put no effort in learning the correct pronunciation.

While we're at it. 

It's not Jacob Weetering it's Veetering

It's not Jayger O'Meara it's Yayger

It's not Jake Collar-jazz-knee it's Collar-darsh-knee

It's not Jason Johannisen it's Yoharnisen

You forgot Jefferson.

The glimpses I saw of him in the Casey game were very promising…looks a pure big forward

Agree TSD

MJ will be the star FF I reckon

Rooey will play all over the forward line and on the ball for short spells and kick plenty to ensure he gets us over the line in the future.

Add maybe Sestan in 12 mths with his goalkicking and skilled forward work plus Kossie hopefully. Sounds very dangerous for goalkicking goals!!!

I'm never sure with Jager. I once worked with a Javier and the first day I met him called him 'Haviere'. He immediately corrected me and said it was just plain old  'Jayvier'.

Lot of people waxing lyrical about this guy playing in the magoos, let's see how he goes in the big league

You could have wished him well or congratulated him. You can only do your best and be promoted. 

It's great for the fans to get excited and he will know he has support from them. They will thank goodness be more positive than you and be parting the excitement. 

Oh sorry AFL isn't to get excited about one must be solemn in case he under performs.

Sometimes people deliberately mispronounce their name because they get tired of correcting people so they just adopt the mispronunciation.   I have family members and work colleagues who do that.

I think TMac's foot is still an issue - wouldn't be surprised if he misses this week, so the JVR call is a no-brainer with Max out - the bonus being that JVR will have the second ruck duties. He'll be right in the thick of it! Big test.

Inside info ? Brain fade ? Or just guessing?

 Tmac should be before dropped placed in defence and HP given a few games up forward to take the pressure off himself end free him up.

JVR is the ideal 2nd ruck spot sharing about 25/33% with Brody and resting up forward. His performance last week at Casey was very strong ( BTW Dee Spencer  your stats from last week were incorrect)  From 11 marks and 19 disposals he deserves finally to debut in the team and be let loose using his marking and competitive skills to our advantage. If he kicks some goals as well they will be a bonus at this stage. 
Never spoil the truth with your opinion Dee to try and make a good story. Or something like that. 

Wonder  how good JVR will be in 2 years?

They only got Oo-zay right because their tiny minds locked up when they saw Y and Z next to each other, and so they fell back on copying the crowd going OOZE.

Van Rooey, the famous number two-ee on debut-ee. Finally broke into-ee the senior crew-ee.

Run through-ee, number two-ee! Put it through-ee the big sticks, Bluey! Now a lock in the twenty-two-ee!

Your success will help with our gross revenue-ee. Glad you do not play for the team with the mascot of kangaroo-ee. Get ready for the Monday morning telephone interview-ee. The pundits will make an analytical review-ee. This has nothing to do with the university of Waterloo-ee. (Someone slap me please.)

    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.
