  • 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

I've been more than happy to hear sensible arguments the condemn Maynard but comments like this are pure hyperbole and are making it harder to sift through the hysteria on here. Gus had the ball in his hands, how on earth can you tell he wasn't looking at the ball?

 

 

He jumped when the ball was kicked his head didnt turn to follow the ball or body turn to reach with his right hand which would be a normal reaction if watching the ball

If this was the other way around we would be carrying on.  Nothing to answer for he actually missed the footy by a couple of cms.  Footy is in a bad spot if these incidents become suspendable.

Next it will be a knee to the head in a marking contest

Nah, can’t have that. 
 

Attempted spoils that miss the ball and that end up in front-on contact are frequent and rarely end up with a player knocked out. 

Maynard knew exactly what he was doing. They will grade it careless but that turning of the shoulder was meant to impact Angus. If was a body shirtfront and Gus got up and played on there would be no case to answer. 
The fact he copped it right in the face and got taken out and was KO’d has to result in a suspension.

I was particularly [censored] off that Patrick Dangerfield seemed to be more concerned with asserting Maynard's innocence at length rather than showing any concern for Brayshaw's wellbeing.

And as president of his peers no less. Then again, what do expect from someone who also did a "footy act" in a final and got away with it:

Wow that is damning. Why is maynard “protecting himself” here? The only person that was ever going to get hurt here was Gus. 

Exactly. No one gives a dam about Angus in the Media. It is disgusting 

Maynard could have swung to the left and the game goes on…

He didn’t, thus Brayshaw’s career must be in some jeopardy

Straight to the tribunal. Good

He'll get off

I think it was a consequence of C'wood coming out to hurt Dees, the hit every consequence hard, I think we all know deep down that Maynard attacked that smother, over committed, and shaped to make the collission hurt...

But, such a short time, and in the process of a football act... They'll let him off

And now the media now pushing a narrative of 'it's an optics thing' and will be overturned at the tribunal. This has included footage of a knee to Brayshaw's head some time prior with the inference that it was also partly a cause of him being knocked out.

Remind me why some things go straight to the tribunal.

Please

It usually spells trouble for the perpetrator.  They are saying 3+ with all the criteria (severe impact etc)

That's according to Tom Browne so don't quote me (haha)

We all know key players get taken out in big games a . It's the VFL/AFLs big loophole. Has been for years. Maybe I'll watch the NRL finals instead this year. They attempt to do something to take out the advantage for the aggressor on the day.

well said. Can you imagine the different focus if that was Daicos. Disgust is what I feel as well . I think sometimes the media give pro collingwood coverage just to make sure their supporter base  engage.

Michael Christian is horribly compromised. Why, as a former Collingwood player, is he even allowed to be involved in the process? Sounds like he wanted to argue 'no case to answer' to keep sweet with his mates and it's been leaked. Perfect outcome for him really.

Watched it a few times. He could have put his hands out to Brayshaws shoulders/ upper chest to absorb the impact with his arms, but instead he chose to put his shoulder out to transfer all the impact to Brayshaws head!!

The Match Review Officer and executive general manager of football Laura Kane graded the incident as careless conduct, severe impact and high contact, drawing a minimum three-match ban and means Maynard's season could be over.

so they bypassed the ex collingwood mro officer ... good

tribunal will uphold as it is afl dominated and they are scared [censored] of concussion litigation

then will go to appeal and all the kings men

I hope for once our club sent in a scathing medical report as opposed to being the nice guys. 
Photos of Gus’ shiner, documents about his previous condition, impact to his and his family’s well being following this nasty collision.  


Bury this thug and bury his club. Hope he misses finals and it burns in his guts forever. Payback for all the cowardly thug acts he’s committed over the years, including this one that could end the career of an actually BRAVE player who plays the ball. Not the man.

The side vision is telling and brutal with Maynard travelling at full speed toward Brayshaw. If Brayshaw had fumbled and not got the kick away, I am sure Maynard would have just continued on, colliding with Angus. We know what the intention was. The days of white line fever play are over. It was careless conduct so must wear the consequences. For some reason it has taken all day for the MRO to handball it to the tribunal where I am sure the lawyers will get him off.

    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

    Angus Brayshaw Forced into Retirement

    After 167 games including the drought breaking Premiership Angus Brayshaw has made the heart breaking decision to medically retire from football as a result of a series of serious head knocks over his nearly decade of footy. We wish Gus all the best and he'll always be a hero at Demonland. 😢
