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.

I was mistaken, DD. So sorry for any confusion. We’ll be at the Punt Rd end in M3 where we sit for home games. This is a Collingwood home game but I forgot that they love their City end Bay (M33) regardless of whose home game it is. And we don’t wanna upset the Magpies cheer squad now, do we? 😁

No ....they'll have enough to cry,sook, whinge about ;)

Moore will come in for Frampton which then leaves JVR to take their next best defender and that's Jeremy Howe..

What a gold match up! Howe hates body contact and prefers to sit off and fly for a mark. I'd back JVR to easily put body Howe in a one on one contest.

But is Jeremy going to back...or stay forward ???

Could be Murphy

He knows what he's doing out there.

Fritta,Jvr,  Bbb, Milk and all TMac are all good kicks.

Even Sam Edmond is jumping on the Grundy bandwagon and suggesting he is as good as gone to Port or Swans.  Where do they get all these rumours or is it all click bait.

Surely Grundy is a required player. Gawn could get injured in the QF especially if that yank slams his knee into him.

Likely Collingwood line-up IMO:

B: Quaynor Moore Howe
HB: Maynard Murphy Noble
C: J.Daicos Pendlebury Sidebottom
R: Cameron DeGoey Mitchell
HF: McCreery McStay WHE/Lipinski
F: Hill Mihocek Elliott
I: Cox Crisp Adams Ginnivan
S: Markov

In: Moore Murphy McCreery
Out: Frampton Markov WHE/Lipinski

Hard to know if McCreery replaces WHE or Lipinski. Could even be Ginnivan.

Howe may play forward or swing.

Has there been enough conversation for the last month, both from the supporters here and in the media for you to be persuaded that Brodie may be leaving? It'd be weird for these things to be spoken about if there wasn't an element of deliberation...don't you think?

Unfortunately, the North VFL team were witches hats, so 5 goals isn't really a true reflection of where he's at. Hope I'm wrong though

Agree

The North game was unlike any MFC or Casey game you might see. It was played mainly in that area we generally abhore.. The corridor. North had innumerable turnovers (Casey had a few) leading to good forward 50 entries with players (wait for it)... dropping their eyes and delivering to the advantage of the forwards

Yes, these imaginary people are despicable. If it weren’t for the fact that they may, or may not, exist - I would be throwing haymakers down at Nick’s.

Been traumatised by horrible Collingwood supporters in the past.

They still give me nightmares! 😱

These journos are imbeciles.

For a start Port has no picks. They have 37 and 42. Last year they traded their 1st, 2nd and 3rd round for JHF.

He will go back just as he did last week with the pies after 2 weeks forward.

does he though ??  just asking..  Moore and Murphy to come back in  ( more than likely...npi )  possibly releases  Howe to go forward again ?  Collingwood will want as much aerial competency agaisnt the likes of Lever and May .....  it's just a line of thinking  :)

They will go back to way they started the season with Howe in the backline, they will go with pace on the forward line.

With Petty and Melk out who will they bring in probably Tmac and he ain't quick and that will leave 3 taller marking forwards which would suit Moore, Howe and co the smart play would be to get our forwards to take moore and howe away from the ball and allow the small forwards to impact the game, I would also have kossie and Tmac don't leave the 30 metre arc.

Tmac  COULD play out of the square...but we havent played a stay at home since....well..some whiles back now. My observations...  so take with a tiptruck of salt...  Tom plays well often when playing high up as a forward...  In a similar vein to what Milky did ...i.e become that link player...  ball off the HB...to a winger to a Half Forward...  Tom plays that Half forward role well as he is both a good kick and a faily smart judge of where to put it..  He can also play at the sharp end and CAN take a strong pack mark...Just depends on where the ball is and whos had it etc..

I havent watched him in the magoos so anyone who has what has been his forte there ??

Oops, thought the Grundy bandwagon might have been him playing in this game.

Yes you can do that but and play smith back but my concern is tmac is not quick anymore and Pies backline are fairly quick so keeping him closer to goal takes one pie link up player away from the action plus it allows him leading room with a small forward close, just like Elliot and ginnivan do.

I can see Smith playing a defensive roll on Moore he is perfect for it.

Smith and Fritta both played on Moore last time and Fritta had 6 scoring shots.

    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
