Posting Unsubstantiated Rumours on this Website is Strictly Forbidden
  • 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

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.

Christian was reluctant to charge the thug but Laura Kane stepped in to effect the charge. Thank you, Laura!

Laura Kane already triggering Collingwood supporters lol

 

What a grub Tom Morris is though. Happy to set Laura Kane up for abuse. This is the same guy who was exposed as a homophobe and racist. Leopard and spots

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:

Dangerfield is pond scum. If I’m sticks or Angus I’m calling this POS up and letting him have both barrels

then making a formal complaint

and then, then, I start making moves to dethrone him

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

Don't agree. The afl release notes new gm football Laura Kane weighed with mro and endorsed grading giving Maynard 3 weeks.

Can't be downgraded due to severe impact. And she needs to see this done. I'm confident his 3 weeks stand.

Or we burn down the house and forget any serious discussion on concussion.

And fakes like dangerfield who has been disgraceful in this episodes commentary can sit quietly in the corner where he belongs.

The footage of Jack pushing Maynard after the incident sums up Maynard. Not until Hoskin-Elliott gets involved does Maynard push back. Then when Jack isn't looking, Maynard grabs Viney by the neck... Maynard is a coward and a thug.

seems that way from everything going around but as the appeals board can no longer up the sentence perhaps we go for it

A week for Jvr  seems soft.

I might be alone here but I don't think Maynard should be suspended. If you watch the footage from the behind the goals angle, Maynard jumps forward and towards the left to smother the kick while Brayshaw is stepping directly forward and while Maynard is in mid air Brayshaw completes his kick and changes direction into the path of Maynard who at this point braces for impact.  We were up in arms re the Van Rooyen spoil earlier this year and I think the Maynard case is similar in that he wasn't trying to make forceful contact it is simply a collision between two players who were focussing on the ball.  While the ball carrier needs to be protected I think Maynard did this by jumping at an angle during the attempted smother.

The millisecond that Brayshaws kick passed, Maynard should have grabbed Brayshaws shoulders to absorb the impact. 
Instead Maynard lowered his arms and pushed his right shoulder out to transfer the full impact to Brayshaws head!

Careless, high Impact, High Contact. Regardless of whatever was going through Maynard's mind at the moment.

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. 
 

This

i’m sick of being the good corporate citizen

victim impact statement, previous history, doctor. BURY HIM

Just as Adelaide and Dangerfield did in 2011 to bury our first time offender Jack Trengove. Only difference being Dangerfield played the following week and got BOG, even with the "horrific" concussion injury he suffered at the hands of Jack

    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
