Discussion on recent allegations about the use of illicit drugs in football is forbidden
  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    Posting unsubstantiated rumours on this website is strictly forbidden.

    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 issue of illicit drugs in footy, 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.

Im going out on a limb here but maybe consider Thommo as a defensive fwd on Weitering

He's a good kick. can run in straight lines. And good one on one.

Cannot see it happening. Thommo is too slow.

We would be better off playing Petracca forward more and getting Sparrow and Jordon to play more in the midfield.

Oliver, Viney, Sparrow and Jordon can win enough ball. Rivers can also go inside for a stint.

Fritsch, Pickett, Petracca, TMac, Smith and Chandler can provide enough chances to kick a winning score. Our average score against has been only 59 in the last four matches.

I think we need to bring in two talls. I just felt we looked short on Thursday night. Carlton will bring in JSOS for Mckay

In: Tomlinson (defence), Turner/Schache (as a forward), Jordan

Out: Hibbo (I just don't think we have an ideal matchup), Brayshaw, JVR

Sub: Woewodin

Slower and less effective than TMac? Tommo isn't the fastest nor the slowest but he always competes and he puts in a good shift in the vast majority of appearances. Would be a good,safe and reliable in at either end of the park for mine....

I really think we need to play Tommo this week with Carlton's tall players, I just don't know who for. 

My current changes are

Out: Gus (inj), JVR (sus), Lauri (sub)
In: JJ, Grundy, Woewoden (sub)

As for Tommo coming in I wonder if we can have him as the sub as a flexible tall in case they are getting on top of us. I just don't see him as an "impact" player. Whereas Woey has speed and a little bit of skill and flare. His youthful exuberance could be a real asset. I also wonder whether an option to throw around is to play Salem more in the forward half of the ground just to try something new. 

I'm expecting with Grundy playing we will revert back to Max and Grundy splitting ruck duties and resting forward. A totally crazy idea would be to START the centre bounce with Grundy and play Max forward.

I reckon Gawn’s toe injury is a non-story. Probably something he’s managed for a while now. 

However, if it’s at risk of worsening, we may need to bite the bullet and play Grundy. Given we need to replace JVR anyway, and the other options are an uninspiring Schache, an untried Turner/Tomlinson, or a possibly not fully fit Brown, I’m not against it.

This thread is getting crazy complicated … to simplify:

JJ for Brayshaw

Big Benny for Roo (reckon Benny has been in cotton wool for 3 weeks as insurance)

Grundy as backup for TMac (love TMac but too slow and may start Grundy in the centre bounce with Max up forward.

Disco 23rd man can go forward or back

Had to do a mountain more work in the middle against the pies than what they would have planned for. Can't help. 

I'm surprised they didn't use Laurie on ball at all. Even 5 or 10 minutes would have given tracc a chop out and chance to play forward. Laurie played as a mid at casey all season after all.

Or Kozzie....

Let's talk proper footy now.

What's done is done and all supporters can do now is move on and cheer the lads on Friday night.

Still not confident at all we win and don't know how we kick a winning score but hopefully the guys have a read hot crack.

You said it dazzle. I'm incredulous and stunned and gobsmacked 

But we have a game to play and an important one at that.

    TRAINING: Friday 19th April 2024

    They are out for a run just as it starts raining. It didn't last long, ended up a reasonable session weather wise.  Light duties, BBB, rehab Farris-White, Melky, Salem and Spargo, all with private trainers. They are all playing soccer, huge amount of noise. 36-40 (difficult to get a count) in the main squad, biggest I've seen it in ages. Choco is barking out the orders. Goody has intense body language as he observes. Bowey in a lime green cap (no contact), and in the sim

    ICEBREAKER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons have broken the ice for season 2024 with a pulsating come-from-behind victory over Port Melbourne in which it took the lead for the first time at the halfway mark of the final quarter. The game played in mild Autumn conditions in neutral territory at Kinetic Park, Frankston, never reached great heights in standard but it proved gripping in character at the end at the Casey Demons overcame the Borough to win by 15 points after trailing badly early in the second half.  P

    MAULED by Whispering Jack

    The writing was on the wall from the very first bounce of the football. The big men went up, Max Gawn more often than not, decisively won the ruck hit out and invariably a Brisbane Lions onballer either won the battle on the ground or halved the contest and they went at it repeatedly until they finally won out. Melbourne managed the first goal from Alex Neal-Bullen but after that the visitors shut out every area of Demon presence around the ground except in the ruck duels. It was a mauling.
