  • 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.

If Kozzie stays with us, I wouldn’t think we would be chasing him, given our last list changes.

If Kozzie goes, I would think our Port targets would be Rozee and Butters, though they might be ungettable.

Good news would be a Kozzie multi year contract extension.

Dunno. Good tall forwards are tough to find

DD 

I amazes me we have JVR ready to debut and MJ starting on his training wheels plus Tmac BBB, the resting rucks Petty and Adams who has played forward and the Schache about to erupt at his new Club.

oh and Fritta best medium forward in the game. 50 goals plus every year. 

Why do we need another tall forward???

So for tall fwds we have 2 kids that have never played, 2 injury prone old blokes and Schache who couldn’t secure a fwd spot in 8 years at the dogs. Oh and 2 rucks who arent fwds

in 2022 lack of tall forwards was our biggest issue. 

im hopeful JVR will be a player but we can’t hang out hopes on a kid. And I’m hopeful T Mac can get his body right. But a quality fwd in his early 20’s wound be a good get

Fully agree DD. With JVR I suspect only one of BB and TMac will play consistently and with Schache back it provides the opportunity for Petty to permanently move forward. By the end of 2023 there may not be room for TMac and BB in the side, although both could go on for another couple of years if they are fit.

Another option, but not my preferred one is Petty forward and JVR back.

Can't imagine we would be able to afford him.

But really rate him,has all the attributes to be a very good player.  If we could somehow get him(trading kossie not an option) that would be great!

Rozee has a strong MFC family connection.... would have been good to get him from the start.

(Not that the family thing helped with landing Prestia... although we were a dogs breakfast then)

JVR does not need to go back IMO with Turner Jed Adams developing Tommo available and fitter this year after his first year following ACL  And Tmac could extend his career by going back IMO. Also Schache might grab the spot.

His extended family, who will remain anonymous here, have been long suffering Demon people. Sitting in the same seats on level 1 on the wing of the Olympic stand for as long as I can remember…. that’s all you’ll get from me on this one.

Currently toiling away from the SANFL after starting his career off well. Kicked 32 goals in just his second AFL season. Talls are he'll be assessing his options at years end with a few Vic clubs interested.

He's 191cm tall forward who plays more of 3rd option.

Everyone remembers our significant interest in the 2020 draft where we were hoping he'd slip to our second pick (Trent Rivers pick).

If our next three years are Gawn, Fritsch, and JVR in the forward line. I am trying to think what we need to compliment that. To me, Brown is perfect for this year because he is a lead up tall who can cause a contest. Move it quick and he will kick a few.

Georgiades is similar to that while not being that big body (9cms shorter than BBB). 

Keep an iron in the fire but our options open.

OOC this year.

If he leaves Port WCE would be the most likely.  He is from WA and WCE tried to get him as part of the first Rioli deal but was in contract and Port wouldn't trade him.

Great hands but set-shots very iffy. Working with chocco might help in that regard. Not entirely sure we need him given we have Fritsch and JVR and Jefferson showing early promise, but worth discussing for sure.

rpfc - still not sold on Max being included as a tall forward on a permanent / regular basis, but with TMc and BBB looking closer to the end we do have  Jefferson developing OK at Casey, and Shack in similar age demographics as Georgiades.  
I wouldn’t discard interest completely, but not to me a top priority.

Smalls. Kozzy, Chandler and a Papley/Weightman type that can hit the foot of the Gawn and JVR contests. We'll still need the ANBs and Spargos, but that's where we could really excel.

Unless of course, we landed someone like Ben King, leaving Max able to play forward or behind the ball, in tandem with Grundy.

JVR, Jefferson and Sestan developing, Brown and McDonald both contracted for another year plus Schache showing promising early VFL form.

I think Georgiades is talented, but don't see him as a priority.

It would have to be a cheap trade to bring in any player who wasn't going to replace someone in our best 23.

What would they ask for in trade? I'm guessing they would want Freos second rounder and we would offer our second round pick. I'm not sure I would do it and would rather load up on kids this year.

    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
