  • 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.

I must admit I was sceptical on chasing him as he plays similar to Fritta, but if Fritta and Melk can play well together in the coming weeks it’s prob not a bad option for a Grundy trade, but I’d also be loathe to give port a better ruckman.

Melbourne were very keen on him in his Draft year but missed out. I would think this is the play if Grundy is going to Port.

He is a lesser version of Fritter in my view and we don't need him. My preference is for a power forward We can get a 4 mark 1 goal a game player anywhere

Averaging over a goal a game at this stage in his career is ntb but is inaccurate, and as said he aint tall.

Not saying he's a champion or anything but he is 1cm shorter than JVR and 6cm taller than Melksham who I see as the closest proxy in our current forward set up

2 Fritters would be totally fine with me

They're not the same anyway, as Georgiades is far more of a lead mark player, getting up on the wings while Fritter is closer to goal.

I'd rather us go Rozee or Butters, but I understand we're interested. Depends what we give up.

There is no way we acquire these players

I suspect the Eagles will offer overs. His non signing at Port is reportedly down to $$ and not being guaranteed a best 22 spot pre-injury.

Tread with care is my conclusion

Time to claim the so called premiership discount that the power clubs had in the past

I think this would be a great option.  This kid has shown plenty in his restricted career.  Port have not played him correctly either.

Straight swap for Grundy would be a fair trade IMO.

A whole thread about a very average player

So Demonland

Couldn't regularly make the Port side pre injury and wants good dollars plus 4 year deal.

As I said above... tread carefully

Upside is that he is 21 and being a first rounder suggests he had ability.

Has he had a 3 goal / high possession game. How did he go in the SANFL pre injury

He has never been the second tall,  has always played alongside 2 other talls and they all get in each others way.

He would be a great second tall for us with Fritter being that versatile 3rd

Maybe - is he better than either of Petty or Joel Smith?

Will Jefferson be better in 2 years?

If we were talking about Larkey, McKay, Lynch or Allen I can see the appeal and clear point of difference of the taller player but for Georgiades I'm not so sure. 

Ultimately, I suppose it comes down to cost - if he isn't costing the earth then maybe worth a punt. He does have good hands I will give him that.

Oh i agree with those other players but they aren't on the table.  If i Could choose one, Allen!! he is perfect, gun key forward and can to the ruck pinch hitting too.

That's the only issue, if we do go for a young key fwd and Jefferson does come on we will lose one.

In terms of Petty and Smith, yes!  Much better than Smith and Petty had been great hole filler but i do think he will settle in defence, especially once May retires

Good player. Great hands. iffy set shot. He was dropped at the start of the year. Not sure whether due to form or attitude. not good either way. then got a bad injury. 

I don't think he's quite what we want. I'm thinking another key to play alongside JVR. He plays more as the third which is Fritschs role now.

In theory, I love the idea of a very mobile and dangerous forward line of JVR, Fritta and Georgiades. Even better if we could get Watson in the draft to pair with Kozzie.

However, I don’t think the combination carries enough size for our defensive game plan. None are big enough to sit under high ball’s for an entire year, they’d be cooked before finals

I have maybe seen Georgiadis in 2 games so have never really noticed him if I'm honest, but if this is anything to go by, he's doing pretty well after 49 games?

After 49 games the following had: 

Gunstan - 86 goals

Hipwood - 73 goals

Jamie Elliot - 66 goals

Georgiadis - 65 goals

Jack Reiwoldt - 62 goals

Charlie Curnow -  60 goals

Fritsch -  41 goals

Only 21 years old, effectively same amount of goals as Jamie Elliot, more goals than Reiwoldt, Curnow and Fritsch at the same time. 

Seems to be more upsides than down?

    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
