  • 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.


Maynard must get at least four weeks


leave it to deever

Why not?  Lions have beaten Pies last  6 times apparently.  Will hold no fears for them and the Pies have come in to the finals in average form and losses.

Don't ne sucked in by the Melbourne hype surrounding Pies.

 

Definitely not sucked in by Melbourne hype. Im in Bangkok.  lol

Its a huge ask for Lions to get up on Saturday. Not the same team 20 years back under Mathews.

Pies will get alot of love from the umpires at crucial moments. Everything will have go right backs and fwd for Lions to get up. Lachie Neale might rip a new one to justify his Brownlow. 

Of course theyre a chance. Pies have been lucky in Sept but not last year. Maybe its their time.

URGGGGHHH!

let's just hope the lions win by a late goal after maynard is illegally blocked but no free paid. just like in the 2018 gf.

that would give him a few more sleepless nights

Reasonable alternative, though I would prefer to see him stretchered off in the first minute after Zorko takes him and Cox 😎out at the opening bounce.

Is this thread still going? Suggest it probably should be locked or renamed to focus on Angus's health and whether he decides to play on next year.

There's already another thread for Gus updates.

This thread will be triumphantly closed tomorrow Arvo.

Dunno about triumphantly. There is no karma in footy. Maynard could well have a medal this time tomorrow. 

 

Edit: moreover, there is nothing to stop him repeating himself tomorrow to enhance his chances of winning.

If karma was real then that vile piece of [censored] Brayden "the Thug" Maynard would be accidentally hit by the Brisbane Lions team bus on his way to the MCG for the Grand Final tomorrow!

I am going to BOO that [censored] for as long as he [censored] plays his AFL career! 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬

Quite the dichotomy this…

Head injuries are generally bad, concussions end careers and affect the long term quality of life of some players.

However, on this occasion, it would be  cathartic to see that bozo knocked the [censored] out in the first quarter - if not the first five minutes. 

Two points;

1. It is important to try to keep the idea of protecting the head alive.

2. It is a higher priority to ensure that Maynard doesn't breed.

So there are other higher (lower?) priorities than knocking him out.

The guy needs a non-lethal Darwin Award.

I don't like his haircut, either.

Perhaps Moore does it for him?

I think Moore has an identity crisis.....no elaboration.

Key to this game is the Big O must dominate that yank from the get go, sink his knee right into his ribs.

This is where he got Gawny early.

Must fight fire with fire straight from the first bounce, we didn't do this, we were very reactive.

I hope our lads have learnt lessons from the first 7 minutes of the 1st QF, have to set the tone early not physical enough at all.

Watching the 2021 GF again. Before the game Fox had a segment on Bulldogs smothering. Not one looked like Maynard's uncontrolled leap forward into a player...

Football Act !!!!

Let's face it, if it happened in round 2 he would have got 3-4.

They came up with the smothering angle and then said the hit was accidental, as he wasn't bumping and then poorly prosecuted the case.

Nudge, nudge, wink, wink.

We all know how this works with the AFL favourites.

Cripps last year another pathetic example and like Gus, Ah Chee, Cripp's victim, missed the finals.

Newman last year got off with a punch to the throat, because they said the charge sheet had the wrong hand named as the striking one, even though they said those technicalities are irrelevant.

I think back to Barry Hall the Swans Captain, punching a Saint pretty hard in the guts, 150 meters off the ball, in a PF.

Tribunal then found that a Swans player was about to grab the ball 150 meters away and he would would have kicked it forward and then that Hall was in the play and it was deemed not off the ball. Hall was cleared and was one of the best in the Swan's flag.

AFL happy.

Integrity is a swear word at the AFL.

The world is full of injustices. Bad things happen to good people and good things happen to people who should rot in hell. 
The AFL is no different. 
 

Maynard won a flag while Gus still doesn’t know if he’ll be allowed to play ever again, and De Goey has also won a flag while women are watching on wishing he was in jail for what he did to them.

    THAT WAS THE YEAR THAT WAS: 2023

    When the dust settled on 2023, the Melbourne Football Club coach Simon Goodwin lamented that the club knew it needed to score more to land a second premiership in the current era. He opined that an average of one more goal per game would have had his charges in football’s stratosphere.  Goodwin was right and, based on his team’s scoring opportunities, that extra goal (and more) was well within its grasp if only they had better converted their shots at goal. Take the side’s last six defeats
