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.

The Eagles did trade pick 2 last year. I wouldn't be surprised if they tried to convert pick 1 into a couple of top 10 picks. Their list is in shocking state and badly needs to be refreshed. Whether we would want to spend all out capital on one player i'm not sure. Reckon we would be better off taking our picks to the draft.

I think it’s highly likely we go for it and certainly possible West Coast agree to it. It’s almost an identical play to what we tried last year with Essendon’s pick and Humphrey. 

Something like:

pick 4, pick 15 and our future first 

For pick 1 and a future third 

Is mutually beneficial IMO. Eagles get to take Curtin and also get two bonus first rounders to strengthen their rebuild.

And we get to draft the heir apparent to Petracca and Oliver. He will be hitting his prime just as they are slowing down / retiring. 

Yes, there’s no guarantees of Reid becoming a star. But the inside bulls have a MUCH higher probability of making it than anyone else.

I'd like to thank Fremantle and Luke Jackson, but also GWS and Richmond. They really came to our aid in a trying circumstances when Freo were getting a run on mid season. Hoping they both make the 8 and lose in the semi's.

Alright getting a bit excited at the prospect of bringing him in, I do worry selling the farm for P1 and not addressing our glaring need for a KPF. Here’s how I’d attack the trade. 
 

1) Trade Harmes to Essendon for 3rd rounder (46) 

2) 46 and Tomlinson to the dogs for 35

3) Package 3 second rounders 23 (freo) 34 (ours) 35 (dogs) & 54 (third round compo for losing Jordan - 2059 draft points to GC for pick 6 - 1751 points, they need their points for their academy boy. 
 

4) 4 & 6 F2 to WCE for 1 & F3

 

that would leave us 1, our first & 89 as our first 3 picks.

As stated elsewhere Zane Duursma is sleeping in his Casey jumper tonight.

Forget Reid if we have pick 4 Duursma will be the name announced. Watched him on today's live stream from Coburg he is tall, moves well and oozes class. He has trained with us, played 2 Casey games that I can remember and stood out for Vic metro and knows how to kick goals.

Yes -  ZD could be Silk 2. Might be plan A, or plan B. Maybe FD will politely enquire with WC about pick 1 but not sell the farm. It’s great to have options…

With pick 4 looking more and more likely we will be one of probably only 2 teams that could trade with WC. If they want Curtain then there’s no point in them trading for picks lower than 4 as there would be a strong chance Curtain could be gone. 
With that in mind it will all depend how highly they rate Curtain- our first two first rounders might be enough to get the deal done. 
I'm not in favour of giving up 3 firsts as I think we have a few holes to fill.

No idea about talent (haven’t watched my usual 30 mins of YouTube highlights just yet) but getting Lamb and Taylor the capital to do something like this could be glorious.

That is why we deathride💀 🚴

That’s it. Good pick to have either way. Whether it’s flipped for this Reid kid, or kept and spent on its merits. The Freo pick looks like a good one.

i agree he is a great size and looks good.

I'm not sure we have enough for pick 1.  would 4 and 15 get it done? last couple of years there has been some big offers for the #1 pick.  3 first rounders for Horne-Francis.

If we can, go for it.  But very handy back up plan too.

Jason Taylor has an impeccable record with mids, not just the players we've drafted but the ones he has coveted e.g. Butters, Humphrey. I have total faith he'll have a definite view on Reid and other possibilities like Duursma.  We will actually be in a position to execute on his plan with the Freo pick.

It will be interesting to see where Curtin is expected to fall and that will influence WC. North have a lot of mids and he may appeal to them more than say McKercher, especially if they succeed in their bid for Sanders. They may have two picks before our Freo pick too via McKay.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 07 vs Richmond

    It's Game Day and the Demons once again open the round of football with their annual clash against Richmond on ANZAC Eve. The Tigers, coached by former Dees champion and Premiership assistant coach Adem Yze have a plethora of stars missing due to injury but beware the wounded Tiger. The Dees will have to be switched on tonight. A win will keep them in the hunt for the Top 4 whilst a loss could see them fall out of the 8 for the first time since 2020.

    Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin ventured down to Gosch's Paddock to bring you his observations from this morning's Captain's Run including some hints at the changes for our ANZAC Eve clash against the Tigers.

    There’s a touch of irony in the fact that Adem Yze played his first game for Melbourne in Round 13, 1995 against the club he now coaches. For that game, he wore the number 44 guernsey and got six touches in a game the team won by 11 points.  The man whose first name was often misspelled, soon changed to the number 13 and it turned out lucky for him. He became a highly revered Demon with a record of 271 games during which his presence was acknowledged by the fans with the chant of “Oozee” wh

    TRAINING: Friday 19th April 2024

    They are out for a run just as it starts raining. It didn't last long, ended up a reasonable session weather wise.  Light duties, BBB, rehab Farris-White, Melky, Salem and Spargo, all with private trainers. They are all playing soccer, huge amount of noise. 36-40 (difficult to get a count) in the main squad, biggest I've seen it in ages. Choco is barking out the orders. Goody has intense body language as he observes. Bowey in a lime green cap (no contact), and in the sim

    ICEBREAKER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons have broken the ice for season 2024 with a pulsating come-from-behind victory over Port Melbourne in which it took the lead for the first time at the halfway mark of the final quarter. The game played in mild Autumn conditions in neutral territory at Kinetic Park, Frankston, never reached great heights in standard but it proved gripping in character at the end at the Casey Demons overcame the Borough to win by 15 points after trailing badly early in the second half.  P

    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.
