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.

His highlights reel is impressive, but that's what highlight reels are for.

I see he wears number 23 at Adelaide.  If he's keen on that number, there's every possibility it may be vacant at Melbourne at the end of this season.

For a third-rounder as suggested?  I'm in.

McAdam's mooted move to Melbourne also opens up the possibility of a three-club trade between the two SA clubs and ourselves, involving Grundy to Port plus other players and draft picks being involved.

Do we need to trade, he is out of contract and want's to leave?  Crows have no bargaining power here

Unless he's a free agent, some sort of trade would need to take place I think.  (cf Luke Jackson)

Alternatively, he could nominate for the draft but then he would have no say where he ends up.

yeh, im not sure he is wanted like Jackson.  Let him walk like Marting did to Carlt back in 2019.  I just really don't like this, he isn't close to our best side.  And the way he is leaving Adel if true, is messy

Really great sign, on the back of koz resigning, an Aboriginal player wants to come to the dees.

Suggests they have really got the cultural safety stuff right.

Compare and contrast to the crows.

Their most popular player, tex, gets suspended for racist comments about an Aboriginal player and then there is the whole camp nightmare and a loved figure like Eddie betts leaving the club because it the cl7b is not cultural safe.

Again, he would have no control over which club chooses to draft him.  Risky business.

Yes, but that's not the actual case.  A 28 year old 50 game player that has burnt his old team.  Not many lining up for him i wouldn't think.  just hope dees play hard ball and give up nothing for him. he isn't worth anything

I'm far from excited but I guess with both Dunstan and Melksham doing ACLs 😭 there might be a need for the extra mature mid-sized body around. Rarely goes goalless.

It is always hit and miss with the top-up type players;

Dunstan, Grundy, Hunter, Tomlinson, Brown, and Langdon being our recent run, which you'd have to say has given us a great overall result for very little trade cost.

A side thought on this is, if we are already bringing in an additional depth player through trade, just how many list spots do we think we're going to have open? Who is on the retirement or trade out queue already?

    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
