Discussion on recent allegations about the use of illicit drugs in football is forbidden
  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    Posting unsubstantiated rumours on this website is strictly forbidden.

    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 issue of illicit drugs in footy, 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.

You sure it is that simple? I don’t think you can just lose a top 5 pick. Plus players will likely know what awaits newly formed clubs in terms of performance and ladder positions.

Unfortunately I don’t think he’ll be there at pick 4. Hawthorn / Norf will likely grab him before we do. 

Where are we getting pick 4 from?

I'm on record not wanting to draft McKercher and the better he is, the stronger my conviction.

If he lives up to expectations he'll be off to captain the inaugural Tasmanian team just when we need him to take the reins from an aging midfield. Yes we'll get good draft compensation but we won't be in the phase needing an 18yo mid.

Bookmark it.

That's some Nostradamus level foresight .I'll take 4 years of mcKercher while our current window and if he reaches the levels you suggest if being a walk up captain for a new Tasmanian team chances are he's helped us Jag another flag. Best available without crystal balling is Taylor's philosophy

McKercher looks pretty small for a midfielder and very left sided. 

That's ok you look for the half glass full FT well look for his other inumerable skills and the had full approach.

Looks the offensive option which we need dearly. More fast skilfully in our team the more positive our game plan will be.

We need to get Pick3 if we wish to land Duursma or this kid.

And North get Sanders as well, its beyond a joke.

Only if they select him at 2 or 3 or they trade up into the top 10 with their other picks. They can't match a bid within 40 like everyone else.

North are taking Mckercher and Duursma unless they get pick 1 then it’s Reid and Mckercher. They also are keeping an open mind on Curtin, but that may have just been Clarko playing mind games with West Coast

Interesting. 

Both Hawthorn and Bulldogs are said to be looking at mid types. If we don't move up it may look like..

Scenario 1

1. Eagles  - Reid

2. Gold Coast - Walter

3. North - McKercher

4. North - Duursma

5. Hawks - Watson/Sanders

6. Bulldogs - Watson/Sanders

7. Demons - Curtin, O'Sullivan

 

Scenario 2

1. North - Reid

2. Gold Coast - Walter

3. Eagles - Curtin

4. North - McKercher

5. Hawks - Duursma

6. Bulldogs - Watson/Sanders

7. Demons - Watson/Sanders/O'Sullivan

Reckon the Dogs will take Watson, think we will take Sanders

 Surely north would want O’Sullivan, take Ben McKays spot. They are desperate for more of a lockdown defender. Rather than curtin

They have a surplus of potential midfield stars

Could be perfect for them swapping 3 with our 6 plus our future first ??

Norf have to go tall, right?

Curtin has several strings to his bow and potential across all 3 lines. As said on another thread, North are into him and whilst that may be Clarkson playing mind games with West Coast, he has let it be known he sees Curtin as part of their future spine.

Whilst he has several attributes and could be anything don’t think for 1 minute he can’t play a lockdown 1 v 1 roll.

Watch his game for WA vs Allies when they moved him onto Walter. There’s also several WAFL seniors games to review him

So you'd still have Curtin ahead of O'Sullivan, mate?

Was very impressed with Curtin's performance on Walter.  The other one that stuck in my mind was how he played against Vic Country. Outstanding game.  Curtin and Reid going blow for blow to try and get their teams over the line. That high in the draft you look for players that can influence the game and help turn momentum in your favour. Curtin and Reid showed this in spades that night.

Would happily have Curtin if he's there at pick 6/7.

Curtin helped coach one of the development squads at Claremont this year , mate of mine worked with him and said he was fantastic with the players no ego and fully engaged with the program

Very hard thing to read, but does he come accross as a kid who could move to Melbourne and cope okay? if he's there at pick 6 he'd be the obvious choice, but i can only see him sliding because of go home concerns, he's too good to not go in the first few picks otherwsie i'd have thought

I think he’s been prepared for the last few years to move interstate and without being 100% certain I think he’s the type that will embrace the club which picks him and want to build something special. Very loyal person to his teammates

Well, if WC don't want to play ball with us so that we can get Reid, then more than happy for us to pick Curtin at 6.

    MAULED by Whispering Jack

    The writing was on the wall from the very first bounce of the football. The big men went up, Max Gawn more often than not, decisively won the ruck hit out and invariably a Brisbane Lions onballer either won the battle on the ground or halved the contest and they went at it repeatedly until they finally won out. Melbourne managed the first goal from Alex Neal-Bullen but after that the visitors shut out every area of Demon presence around the ground except in the ruck duels. It was a mauling.

    TRAINING: Sunday 7th April 2024

    Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin ventured down in the rain to Gosch's Paddock for the Demon Family Series April School Holiday Open Training session. Not such a good morning, weather wise. As I arrived, it starting raining, settled into watching some Victory players have a kick around. The MFC squad come out as the rain abated, they had wide smiles as the walked down the roped corridor. Plenty of joy from the supporters towards them, kids everywhere, maybe about 500 to a 1000 of us.
