  • 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.

Maynard has a good relationship with Melbourne players. His brother played for us.

Also, he played for Vic Metro with Tracc and Gus in 2014. Those boys go way back.

Wouldn't mind him

Cox played OK. Disposal very good by hand and foot. Was probably 2nd best big man on ground behind Max. By my count he is only behind 3 Irishmen for best import. Maynard is a goer and showed some maturity. Was a ripping game and I loved our method and effort. Can’t wait to a rematch (anytime) in the finals. Players brought the heat and we made some noise!

Who are your three Irishmen? I've got four in mind: Jim Stynes, Sean Wight, Tadgh Kenneally and Zac Tuohy. For what it's worth, I like Mason Cox and believe his ability to get to 100 AFL games is a huge achievement. History has shown that it's been harder for Ameericans to learn our game than the Irish.

The definition of "import" perhaps needs clarification, too. There's bloke who was born in Austria who came to Australia as a 4 year old who played alright. Hint: Ukranian father and Russian mother. Played for Carlton (and St Kilda, although no-one cares about that bit.)

I have no idea what went on between Cox and Petracca, and, frankly don't care.

Not really sure Warne is a flawed hero? Legend i would say.

I thought he was a human being and a bloody good cricketer: he took over the mantle of the greatest German Cricketer from me. Most human beings are 'flawed', and I'm not sure what 'Legend' means. A legend is someone invented by historical mythology.

Ok, everyone stop now. I’m starting to really like Brayden Maynard and it’s making me feel uncomfortable.

Maynard is a bloody good defender. He can cross the line a few times and be a little macho but i like the mongrel in him. Its not the Melbourne players' [censored] don't stink (apologies for the crude analogy) as well and we probably have multiple players that opponent fans cannot stand. 

I recall the rumours of him coming to Melbourne as well - not sure how real they were - but May, Maynard, Lever would have been an awesome FB line.

Now he had a swagger and every right to have one. Second best player i have actually spoken to.

Just one comment on Cox. As i recollect he didn't have the same demeanour that he had at the start of his career, and for me, i'm a little disappointed that things have changed. There are celebrations and celebrations. There are signs and there are signs, and there are put downs and put downs.

And his father played for us as well. Likely grew up a Dees supporter.

‘Maxy’ Maynard is the GM at Casey. I chatted to him, Mark Weideman, Kelly O’Donnell and T-Macs old man in the bar near where I sit a year or so ago during a game. He played for us around 1980-81 I think?

Sean Wight was Scots. From Glasgow. Nickname at the club was Haggis.

Grundy was the best big man on the field.

Agreed, legend. Flawed in the sense that off-field indiscretions would often overshadow his performance.

Ultimately that had little bearing on people’s affection for him. It probably enhanced it.

The bit that I find funny, Cox said he did not know how it got out then talked about it? 

Like Prince Harry and his missus

“I don’t know how that leaked out - must have been illegally hacked by the evil press “

”No, H, it was actually in your book - or maybe your Oprah interview”.

That's the mighty Alex J, who I identify with because in some circles, his nationality is given as Austrian, as some looney tunes say about me. In other words, both of us were born to Dispossessed refugees who happened to be living in a refugee camp at the time. I said to one Priest who said, You're not German, you're Austrian. I replied, Hey, if my parents would have been refugees in Japan, would you call me Japanese? ( The White Supremacist priest in question understood what I was saying. He once told his class about the great, great benefits of living under British Colonial rule. He said, They left great infrastructure. I burst out laughing...)

And, with regard to the PetCox drama, I was just curious as to the real reason why two decent blokes might blather away after a game like that.

Yeah first 3 forgot Zac, so agree with your four. 
 

By import I mean growing up OS with no AFL background.

Yep, played a bit of Rugby and Soccer growing up in Canberra as well I believe. Footy didn't come along until his early teens.

Bumped into him at Richmond Dan Murphy one day. He looked immaculate in his suit, and I said, You are the famous Ukrainian/Russian footballer and your name is Alex... He ignored me and walked away...

Very unfriendly chap, I taut to meself....

Not my experience, I met him several times and he was very humble and gracious.

Saw him at a lunch in st Kilda 4-5 weeks ago along with big nick, tuddy etc. Aged but very nice bloke.

Not saying it was his attitude: he obviously misread my intentions. I thought he simply doesn't wanna be Jezza when he's buying his beer and tobacco, if you get my drift. I wasn't casting 'aspersions' or perversions, ok; more of a note about how I obviously came across...😂🤣😎I loved the guy, loved watching him play.

    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
