Posting Unsubstantiated Rumours on this Website is Strictly Forbidden
  • 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.


JvR is the Round 12 Rising Star …

And to all the previous posters who said he was no hope …maybe you can understand why more “positive “ posters get so sick of the negativity. Well deserved JVR ..

And it's the same posters with their Eeyore stuff in every thread. Must be fun at parties.

Much more pleasing than Rising Star this week was Roo's up the ground movement. Lot to like about his solid play yesterday moving in and out of congestion..

Being mobile upfield makes a forward a target, maximises opportunities, draws out defenders and hopefully leads them for dead, exploits space or double-back-across, particularly if they are quick, agile, strong, can mark, can kick a mile and is accurate over 55m out. JVR has got all of these attributes. Plus, he's a team player and man. He can only improve. Congratulations JVR, rising star is a very good marque to reach, so early.

Magnificent recruitment and development from the club. Pick 19 is a steal.

Jacob looks a great prospect. And critically he has that insane will to compete and win. That celebration after his goal was so good.  He wants this bad and he is as tough as nails.

Watch Collingwood try to "ginger up" the new boy. I think he has a bit of the Neil Balmes about him...

Well done young man, so glad we didn’t rush him last year it has paid off in spades. Looking forward to a long career in the Red and Blue.!!!!

Well done to the young bloke!

Showed real maturity in the game last Friday evening.  Cool and calculated and is really coming on

Would love to see him play CHF and further afield (when applicable) as he has play-making attributes

He's not just a goal kicking KPF

These clowns are the only bad thing about the site in reality. We have a club that won a flag 2 years ago, has the best 3 players of the last 30 years in the team, and has a crack every week. I enjoy this footy parallel universe to the previous 50 years and the incessant negativity / baiting is moronic, low brow and juvenile. Always the same posters and I have neither the will nor inclination to engage but it is almost always a frustration.

Maybe you should practice what you preach then. Greatest hypocrisy I have read on this site.

Rising Star indeed! Where others struggled for accuracy, young fella stepped up to the mark and showed how it is done. Beyond which was an impressive four quarter performance.

Well Done Rooey! Another feather in JTs cap.

McVee is silky smooth, but it’s hard for him to to impose himself on the game playing shut down roles in the back pocket.

 

McVee would do well running through the midfield l feel

Going early but I think we might have one this week.

Just can’t decide if it’s going to be Judd McVee or Jacob van Rooyen.

One of them will win Best First Year Player at our AGM, but which one?

Right now, my money is on Judd. Less spectacular and less noticeable but consistently effective and brings a line breaking attribute we lack.

What do they get for a nomination these days? 

 

It used to be a big telly.  

Remember on the Sunday Footy Show when participants in Lou's Handball used to get a Telefunken DVD recorder? I remember thinking how much I'd have loved one of those. 

Needless to say all these machines are probably laying in a tip somewhere..

    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
