  • 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.

Josh Jenkins believes the Demons should aggressively target Port Adelaide forward Mitch Georgiades.

“The best presenters in the AFL is what they tell me,” he said on AFL Trade Radio’s Trade Mornings.

“If you meet with the Dees as a player, you will be swept off your feet, I’ve heard that a few times.

“I’ve thrown up this guy before, and you have to sway him to leave his club, and the club aren’t going to be keen for him to leave.

“And you’re going to have to sway him from jumping on a plane from Adelaide to Perth and get him on one from Adelaide to Melbourne.

“Mitch Georgiades, go and present to him, convince him to take the meeting and say, ‘We’ve got big Max Gawn for first use, we’ve got ‘Clarry’ (Clayton Oliver) and we’ve got Christian (Petracca), we will get you that many opportunities to get your hands on the cherry it’s not funny’.

“Tom McDonald can go in and do the second rucking, Georgiades will still be a number two in terms of size next to (Ben) Brown or McDonald.

“I’ve got massive upside hopes for Georgiades, I think he can turn into one of not big marking forwards, but one of the better marking forwards in the game.

“He’s only 192cm, he’s not genuine key forward size, but he can jump on packs, in packs, over packs, he can stand on heads.

“What he can do, he can take a grab and he’s only going to get better and better, he generates a lot of shots on goal for a young forward.

“Melbourne, you don’t necessarily don’t have to spend the whole million on him, but first page, $750k. I have great faith that the young man will quickly be worth $750k.”

I didn't know not to open it until I opened it!   😉

Then saw the 'hypothetical' and who wrote it!  They are getting desperate at Trade Radio!

I think with Fritsch and JVR our priorities will be for a genuine 195cm+ tall with the reach for contested marks/deterring 200cm super athletic defenders rather than Georgiades. Or a forward/ruck to take over from Gawn.

Fritsch hadn't proven himself as one of the games better goal kickers and JVR was years away when we wanted Georgiades in the draft.

Not against the idea as he'd still be a good marking option that generates scoring opportunities. No actual evidence he's looking to move clubs though.
I don't think he's exactly the type of marking forward we need though. We need a King brother/Mckay/Cameron type 200cm target that won't get outmarked and can reliably hit the scoreboard. Ben Brown doesn't have long left and is already struggling. We don't have another one on the list unless god forbid they plan to play Gawn forward close to 100% and hope for the best with his kicking!

The $750 is ridiculous. No way we pay that for a bloke that kicked 23.24 this year.

Has potential. Could be good could be average

i imagine we are talking to any and all decent forwards

Who would you say is really gettable, this year or next? E.g. Naughton is not

You have a fake million dollars, what do you spend it on? Mitch Georgiadis? No.

Instead i’d spend the fake million on a time machine, go back to 1986, move the Hawkins family to Alice Springs, wait for Tom’s arrival in 1988, keep him away from everyone, and pick him up for nothing through our academy. Bang! 15 years of a gun forward.

If you’re going to get theoretical why not get weirdly, deeply theoretical?

Your time machine was warped. You needed to program it 20 years earlier before Tom's father Jack was zoned to Geelong. Jumping Jack Hawkins was a very good footballer.

Ok, so I need to set aside 10k for consulting fees for the dates on the time machine. Good note. 👍

    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
