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.

I’m sort of hoping that our forward game plan will involve very quick sharp kicking in (breaking the lines, lowering the eyes) , not slow congested long bombs.

If and when it is bombed in (say from a centre clearance) again , speed is the essence.

And…. keep it locked in…. and kick accurately, and….

So a complete 180 from last week.

Not asking for much Wod.... seems reasonable.

At least from where i'm sitting! 😂

Has to be , I'd back him anywhere in the ground to make a contest. Even in the forward 50

Is hibbo being saved for next week as the best chance against Charlie Cameron.?

Bold move but goody may believe is worth the risk to keep him intact. Let the boys take care of the blues while he's kept healthy.

People here tend to have a negative attitude about JJ but a lot of that comes from him trying to play wing; as a proper running mid he is underrated.

not at all.  lower that to 188cm and you'd add a few.  Clarry missed that list by hair

Tall mids have been a priority and we have several talls injured

188cms is not a tall player in the modern game. In face the average height of an AFL player is 188.2 cms. 
 

In terms of tall forwards over 195 we have a cooked TMac/Brown, spud Schache and a few kids.

Agreed

The non Hibberd section is mind boggling, he played a great game last week & you’d think his retirement could’ve given his teammates a little bit more motivation for a club favourite 

Perfect opportunity for Grundy with Max a bit sore & Carltons two rucks

Spargo l can cop, at least he can spot up a target inside 50

And some people want Schahce as the sub

Ive lost all confidence now, it’s been lost at the selection table

Oh come on Billy, don’t lose your number

JJ is also a victim of competing with Trac, Viney and Oliver. He is serviceable as a midfielder.

I thought Grundy was valued at our club??? Those words will haunt Goodwin & could go down as the biggest flop of a trade & only Melbourne could manufacture this! Can’t help injuries but if Gawn is on one leg who will be out back up ruck???

It was clear from Brisbane game we excepted the dual ruck failed; since then it’s been all single Max. Gawn was BOG last week, perhaps on one leg, let’s back him to go again, he’s a genuine great who regularly performs when needed. I’m happy to back Max in.

 

if he gets injured that’s as [censored] as Trac or May getting injured. We can’t cover any of them regardless who the sub is.

So ... Chaps...Chapettes..  ( anything in between  )....

How do we feel about the looks of the team ?

Take all brouhaha and mock excitement away...   are we booking tix for Brissy... or checking out the Specials Board at Kooroora ?? 

I'm disappointed as to where we sit.

I fear another wasted year...

Cheers 

Gut feel on seeing the names I wasn’t thrilled. I was hoping we’d go for Grundy in with Gawn 30% or more forward to drag in some marks. Was disappointed for Hibberd. 

With more time to think about it Tomlinson makes sense, takes TDK or Pittonet and frees up Lever to play on a smaller fwd and take intercept marks. If Jack Martin was playing Hibbo probably stays in.

Spargo at least shows they know our delivery i50 was bad and someone needs to hit targets. Marks i50 are desperately needed. Whether he can do anything about that given his time out of the side is another matter but let’s hope.

Jordan was the obvious one, no other option really, he’s not brilliant but he’s consistent. 

I think we win, half a game and 30-odd wasted i50s last week and we got close to the pies. Play 4 quarters and hit some i50 targets and we’ll have the blues covered.

Tbh I don't think they gave the gawndy combo a real chance. How many games did they play together in the dry?

They played a game at Marvel together and got belted by Marshall.

    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.
