  • 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.


Welcome to Demonland: Shane McAdam

Redleg, if Melksham wants to play on next year I reckon we would be mad to not keep him on the list. He is exactly the sort of bloke to have driving his team mates in rehab, is a strong leader both on and off the field, and will create competition for spots in our 22 in the second half of the season. If word re McAdam's willingness to work hard are true then I cannot think of someone better than Melksham to encourage him to make the most if his short career is ideal - the bloke who missed years in his prime due to the Essendon doping program, didn't play in our premiership and did his ACL on the eve of this years finals campaign.

We can have that by making him an assistant coach, developing youngsters at Casey and maybe even playing for them, if he is able towards the end of the season.

Go walk through the streets of Adelaide and do the same.  

Is everyone on the streets of Adelaide talking about the McAdam trade?  I knew it was a bit boring there but that is a surprise!

What's the difference between doing that and big footy??  Just people and their opinions.

Well I guess the big difference is that you’re NOT actually walking around the streets of Adelaide asking random people their opinions on Shane McAdam, and the other thing is a collated list of actual opinions from a large amount of random Crows fans.

Crows fans that don't care about McAdem going won't be on there.  So all you are getting is one side.  The people I talk to which comes up almost everyday at work or social events are not prompted by a forum. 

And some do rate him, but most don't and couldn't care less if he goes

Trav, unless you are a state politician, kissing babies your sample size is small. Even if you are a politician, your sample size is small. 
 

Does SA have a social scene? 😳

And big footy is a bunch of Crows nuffies who think a 50 game player is worth Petty.

Weidemen had played 50 games and kicked over 60 goals at the end of last yr, but not too many Dees supporters saying he is a gun and will make a top 4 fwd line

A bit like Grundy being worth pick 11. Even if Sydney are given a pick back…

And now, see 'Melksham set to play on in 2024' thread. McAdam to be one of his projects: 'C'mon, son; make it hard for me to get back in the team!'

McAdam for a future 3rd round is the right deal. He’s not in Crows plans and wants out. Not in their view of a best 22 player.  

Nor in our B22

    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
