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.

What is it with all the Bedford revisionism in this thread. He did not show this kind of form when playing for us. And he had chances to do so.

No he didn't and in the short stints he did have, which were barely enough to show anything, he showed enough to re-sign for at least one more season.

Played a VN game/role in the Premiership win also.

We offered him a contract. FD wouldn't do that if they didn't think he could contribute.  Why didn't he stay with us and fight for his place like Chandler did?

Bedford played exactly as we thought we would.   Pace.  Pressure. Goalscoring. After being sub for 8-9 games and dropped , he wanted to be given a chance. Goodwin and others seriously got this one wrong imv.  He always looked like a player.  This is not hindsight.  We called it out over the past 3 years when he was on our list.  

100% NS.

I love how some on here make statements as if fact... that no one on here saw the upside in him and said nothing before his entre' efforts with  the Giants.

A number of Landers saw the potential well before he was let go and were dissapointed that he was let go.

GWS will be hoping the bears towel Port so they can play them next week. 
 

They will beat Port at Port and go into the prelims. 
 

From there, if they make the granny and the bears make the granny, GWS will win the flag. 
 

They have the talent, the game plan and the mongrel for finals footy.

A lot of hindsight Harry’s in this thread

You and Dub are arguing about hindsights and that he was given enough of a chance.

Now you're arguing contract negotiations and he shouldve just stayed.  That's a diff argument altogether and one that im pretty sure most on here would have no inside info as to how it played out.

He must have gotten a more lucrative  offer then BDA which we didnt want to match.

you said he was let go. he wasn't. he was offered a contract.

there are comments on here that the FD should have recognised his talent. They recognised something otherwise they wouldn't have offered him a contract.

Personally, I don't think that he showed enough. Thats a matter of opinion which we can disagree on

He's had a great year. Good luck to him. Many the change of environment was what he needed. A bit like Perter Wright who i didn't think could produce what he did.

you would think so. or maybe more years.

Correct.  No club is going to get every list choice correct but some Landers did see his potential prior to leaving and said so.

Not every comment on here is based on the benefit of 'Harry Hindsight'

I hate the so-called "expansion clubs". I don't want to see them win. Not many will be celebrating.

Fair enough. 
 

Im purely selfish about it from day to day. 
 

I would rather a corporate, soulless and vacuous entity like GWS find success than to have to endure the endless amount of entitled and arrogant verbal diarrhoea spewing from the mouths of Pies and Carlton supporters by one year of success.

 

If GWS play the pies and blues 5 times each in the next 10 grand finals, then I will be cheering GWS to their tenth flag in a row until my voice is destroyed. 
 

I cannot express how much disdain I have for those clubs. 
 

I wish them nothing but misery.

You make good points 😁. Port or Brisbane winning would be somewhere in the middle.

So who do we want to win tonight?

PORT! I can’t stand the Lions. Didn’t particularly like nor dislike them up until round 23 last year but since then I’ve been giving my Dane Zorko voodoo doll a hiding.  The crushed nuts incident (thanks Touk!) is only partly satisfying. Them going out in straight sets this year will go a ways to eventual appeasement.

    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
