  • 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

Corey Norris 9 news  - throwing Petty up as a swap is absolutely laughable. Is that guy actually serious? If I was his boss I’d sack him for stupidity. 

Yet another example of the media pile on of disrespect for the MFC. Regardless of what happens this finals series, I hope we absolutely nail this draft/trade period and have a Geelong like decade-long window of premiership contention.

Exactly. Why don’t they just go for broke and trade him to Collingwood for one of their premiership defenders?

Oh wait…

For a hack that can barely get a game in a bottom side.  And has left taking everyone down with him.  He screams of poor attitude to me.

Complaining about the fitness and medical program but wants to come to the club that has a system in place constructed by the same guy (burgess).

AVOID!!

AFAIK his "complaining" came about because he was instructed to run through hamstring awareness and tore it. I can see how that would be annoying.

I've noticed his marking and great leap.  Hopefully he can have a Tyson Stengle type impact for us

He equalled NicNats vertical jump record when he was at the combine.... so yeah, not a bad leap.

should go well in our forward line competing with Tmac Fritta Kozie and Gawn

After watching some highlights as a way to pass the time, besides the obvious great leap his ability to get the ball off the ground is nice and he seems to apply pressure and chase well, two things we desperately need as BBB and TMac have aged and Milk effectively out all of next year. I think this will be similar to the Lachie Hunter acquisition where he may not be an A grader but will play his role well and allow us to fill a hole for relatively cheap. He also has better upside than Hunter in a position we need.

A forward line JVR, Petty, Smith, McAdam, Fritsch plus smalls Kosi, Chandler, ANB, Spargo reads ok

Yes, but only if we can get all of those on the park consistently, esp for finals. 

Still think we are one tall, competative forward short, ie. not Schache or Grundy. Jefferson is a long way off, if at all

Zero Hanger reporting that Harrison Petty could be used in a trade deal! Adelaide into him evidently.

Not sure their reporting Petty could be part of the deal but Adelaide would like Petty as part of the deal. Given our shortage of key position players I think there is close to zero percent chance Petty is traded.

There is just no way we part with Petty unless he is telling us he wants out, and even then I reckon we will say no as he’s contracted. 
Crows have no choice but to come to the party. McAdams is uncontracted.

    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

    Clayton Oliver was integrated back into the main training group today for the first time in 2024 after completing a 2km time trial.
