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.

How in earth does McKay get off on that late hit. It is ridiculous, farcical and a completely inconsistent with what we have seen in the past.

But are we surprised…. not  one bit. Protected club. 

He wears old dark navy blue. Just pathetic.

The AFL tribunal is a joke. Carlton argued that McKay was trying to ‘push’ - but with 2 elbows up that hit him clear in the head.

It’s like the tribunal is so at pains to declare its independence from the AFL that it deliberately flies in the face of what the league claims it’s trying to do.

Protect the head - but run at a guy with both elbows up and hit him in the face, that’s fine.

Rohan gets 1 week and Day gets 2 weeks for dangerous tackles. I thought Rohan’s looked worse. 

agree. maybe it was because the hawk just bounced back up straight away

still the potential for serious damage looked worse in rohan's case

so what is it afl?, the lucky outcome or the potential for head injury - no consistency

I rewatched the incident. McKay wasn't even trying to smother. The ball is kicked very low, why did he immediately go to the head?? Makes no sense at all the decision of the MRO.

fair enough 

the way i see the potential rule (trying to apply logic) is there must be sufficient speed or impact involved that there is potential for a worse outcome. like the kozzi incident. i don’t see that in the mackay incident 

Looks like you were right.

Beat me to it Gtg. And whilst we’re at it, how did Will Day get two weeks and the other bloke (forget name) got one. Looked identical

the impact was clearly low imo. the MRO should have judged it as such and given a fine to avoid the circus

hope the AFL get sued out of business with the concussion issue then we can go back to the beginning and start again.

A football league by the people, for the people

i love how the AFL outsource accountability to the tribunal 

have some balls and make the call initially

And the legal wording in the arrangement will make sure no individual can be held accountable.

Slightly off topic but reported today that Dillon, favourite for McLaughlin's position, has Demetriou as a mentor

The game is in the hands of people who want to make money above everything else

In my opinion

About the 3rd time they have spent  millions on consultants who nominate the 2nd in charge for the top job. Farcical.

No way, we had Terlich and Matt Jones up the top of our best and fairest.

  Player Votes
1 Nathan Jones 365
2 Colin Garland 360
3 Dean Terlich 306
4 Matt Jones 303
5 Colin Sylvia 288
6 Lynden Dunn

270

 

Top 6 in 2013 Best and Fairest. Good honest triers, but a far cry from our current list which is stacked with A graders.

Whately summed up the McKay finding as follows: I have never heard such mumbo jumbo in my life.

I have, in the Cripps Appeal last year.

A Carlton fan tried to tell me last night that the MRO is too busy protecting themselves against future CTE cases..

    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.

    DEMONLAND: Good evening, Demon fans and welcome to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast … It’s been a beautiful last day of September and how sweet it is to bring you our coverage of all things that matter about the great Demon resurgence which we’ve seen over the past six or seven months. How our team overcame a turbulent off season and a disappointing start to 2024 on a humid night in Sydney, turned our detractors into believers and then ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    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.
