  • 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.

Boys coming off the track now. A very light Captain’s Run. 

Major things to report:

Fritsch moving freely and well

TMac In. Moving well too. 

No Joel Smith on the track. hopefully just a cold and they’re keeping him away from the group. Otherwise he has to be one of the unluckiest player to play footy.

Based on your observations do we think it's only going to be the one change only with McDonald for Melksham?

If Smith is out then that complicate things. No exact replacement but weather probably opens the door for another small forward Spargo or Woey or Laurie. 

And yes McDonald for Melksham.

There's been a few instances where a player has not trained during the Captain's Run and played the next day. Hoping this is the case with Smith.

Could be a sniffle, a family emergency, food poisoning.

I believe his partner is pregnant, maybe she's in labour? 

Am I worried? No. I am not worried. I never worry

A few obvervations but it was a very short and light session so don't read too much into it:

The end to end no pressure drill suits Hunter but he really is a beautiful kick of the footy

Oliver had the fumbles

Kozzie was taking set shots at the end and wasn't setting the world on fire with either drop punts or across the body shots

Chandler gets some real penetration on his kicks with little effort

Smith was a no show. I've got no idea how our forward setup would look without him so I'm guessing Collingwood will be in the same boat. Hopefully he is fine

Genuinely curious why those young Casey players are still training and not having an early start to their pre-season to freshen up? It's not like any of them will play in finals.

What if the flu ravages the team similar to Geelong 2021??

Smith is in Pic 13 from Monday's training gallery. Let's hope it's a dentist appointment.

Gees what a good report. I've never been less confident of kicking a winning score!

    Angus Brayshaw Forced into Retirement

    After 167 games including the drought breaking Premiership Angus Brayshaw has made the heart breaking decision to medically retire from football as a result of a series of serious head knocks over his nearly decade of footy. We wish Gus all the best and he'll always be a hero at Demonland. 😢
