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.

Fully fit Fritsch and McAdam could be a nightmare duo to matchup for opposition defences in 2024

I can't see them both in the same team, it's one or the other.  Unless we are planning to only play one Key forward

Shane may be just the jigsaw piece  needed to complete the forward puzzle. Enigma to some of course but a great western in the tradition of Stand off at the Corvid Corral.

Nice to have a Western Australian who wants to come here!

He's had an interesting career. I didn't realise he only started playing AFL in 2024. His SANFL form in limited games pushed him into AFL contention via mature aged pre draft by Carlton before Adelaide wanted him in the McGovern deal.

He certainly consistently hits the scoreboard. Has some serious athleticism.

I think he will be a great addition with his speed, ability to mark as a medium fwd (186cm) and seems to be clean with the ball.

Fritsch and McAdam will work well

Oh well, atleast we'll have a half decent Casey side in 24.

Please dont recruit Gunston as well. His career is all but done.

There are no readymade forwards out there coming to us. We can win it as long as our 4 main forwards stay healthy and we send Trac forward when necessary.

I'm bereft. That's a cumulative half hour a day I now have to find something else to do with!

But welcome, Shane, to you and to your fairly successful first name, MFC-wise. As to your surname, we'll endeavour to get it right by the time of your 30th goal in 2024.

 

Would Blake Howes swap his Shane Woewodin / Shane McGrath 22?

Closer to the NT and add the fact he had relocated to Adelaide for a few years before getting taken by Carl/Adel

Would be good to land his brother Ash Johnson also

reckon they both play round 1 personally. 

I can see us looking at a small fwd line with both playing.  You would hope with what we have paid he is playing round 1.

I"m sure he will be, but how long it lasts i dunno.  Hopefully I'm eating my words after 20+ games and 40 goals!

(😁 A typo no doubt, YB, but...)

To any who think his career so far hasn't been up to AFL standard, that'll be good news!

He will take Melksham's spot until at least well into the year when (hopefully) Melky is over his ACL. When they are all fit and in form will be an interesting selection query...

    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
