    Demonland has made the difficult decision to not to 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, 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.

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.

So    for those that know

If we get this bloke does that mean we no longer look at Liam Henry or do we get LH to go to Casey ?

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.

    PODCAST: Jason Taylor Interview

    I'm interviewing the Melbourne Football Club Recruitment Manager Jason Taylor early next week on the Demonland Podcast. I'll be asking him about moving up the draft order, our new recruits (both Draftees and Trades), Daniel Curtin, our recent recruits who have yet to play a senior game, who he thinks will be the next Judd McVee and more. If you have any further questions let me know below and I'll see if I can squeeze them in. I will release the podcast either Monday or Tuesday.

    TOO LITTLE TOO LATE by Meggs

    It was a hot afternoon at IKON where the ferocious Cats came to play, had read the manual on how to beat us and the Demons were unable to match them for the first three quarters.     With physical pressure, they took the game on with relative ease and though our resistance seemed better than the previous two weeks it was still not good enough.     Within the opening minute, Kate Hore marks within range, but her shot was a miss-kick, like a fat iron, and it kinda set a flat tone f

    TURNAROUND by Meggs

    Following successive comprehensive defeats by fellow Top Four heavyweights the Demons play down a division this Sunday against the highly promising Cats.     Strangely, no games against the Cats for five seasons and now we play them twice in one season.     With the blueprint on how to defeat the Dees available on the dark web the real question is, will we crumble again under the finals pressure cooker or will we rediscover our #DemonSpirit and execute a turnaround?   Mak

    THE SECRET IS OUT by Meggs

    We were expecting that after last week’s comprehensive defeat by Brisbane, our coach Mick Stinear would have his charges coming out breathing finals fire. Instead, it was North who had the aggression, the numbers, who blocked our scoring avenues and rendered us impotent, unable to match the Kangas during any phase of the match.   Darren Crocker, the North coach, later highlighted that how to beat Melbourne is no secret following recent losses to Adelaide and Brisbane and now North.

    CATCH EM ON THE HOP by Meggs

    A sunny Sunday afternoon feast of finals footy awaits at our team’s favourite home ground, Ikon Park.  Great vibes at Princes Park where we remain undefeated from 7 matches and counting. Expect the Dees to come out strongly, sparring and outmuscling the Kangaroos in the middle.  With Paxy back firing and our gun forwards mesmerising, hopefully we catch ‘em on the hop. Melbourne, Adelaide and Brisbane have filled ten of the twelve Grand Final spots in AFLW history, and this dominance

    COLD AGGRESSION by Meggs

    “Cold aggression”, Lions star full forward Dakota Davidson called it. Brisbane outmuscled, outran, and ultimately overwhelmed us. They certainly came to play and exorcised their 2022 grand final grudge defeating the Demons in the rematch by 25 points. Stats count and Brisbane won the key ones. Inside 50s 42 to 24, centre clearances 8 to 6, uncontested possessions 133 to 75 and 51 marks to 27. The Lions’ sustained pressure is the kind we usually bring for other teams.   There

    HOME PRIZE by Meggs

    Big stakes this weekend. For the winner, will it be a Dees minor premiership and potential home grand final or will it be a Lion‘s Top Four finish and a double chance?    Huge interest circulates in the how the ladder unfolds over this weekend’s final round of the 2023 home and away season with some 10 teams vying for 8 places.     It’s AFLW Pride Week, a celebration of people from all walks of life coming together, being respected, loved and accepted. Women’s football continues

    WICKED WIND by Meggs

    Hang out to your hats. The strong blustery conditions made it extremely difficult for either team to execute footy skills but nonetheless an entertaining match ensured for those brave enough to venture down to Casey Fields on Saturday. Impressive Irish player Aine Tighe was a late withdrawal for Freo. Maddie Gay was also a late change, and she was replaced with 19 year-old Georgia Gall, the 6-foot ex Melbourne Stars BBL cricketer who has been impressing the coaches in scrimmage games.
