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.

Going to leave the AFL community in mass confusion if Maynard gets cleared.

I get that it was a football incident rather an off the ball act of thuggery, but he could be held accountable for a severe impact.

 

 

It is parameter setting if he gets off

next week viney can smother 21 blokes into concussion in legitimate footy acts

and then so on

A good KC will defend that

”er sorry these are your rules established via the Maynard act.”

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.

Not correct. Players are required to foreshadow the results of their action. Intention or not.

Maynard did not do this. Just went for an outlandish attempt. He didn't mean to hurt Angus but the minute he chose to leave the ground as Goody referred to in presser he's responsible for outcome.

3 weeks will stand. Angus may not play again for some time.

Do you have any contacts within the Brayshaw family WCW? How's the guy and the family doing?

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. 
 

2nd best post of the year!😁

If that is true - 2 things 

huge kudos to Kane to overrule an obviously compromised christian. That is very very telling if she stepped in and I sense christian May well be shown the door as he well should . 

maynard will be put out for 2+
 

the CTE stuff is an insurance and liability nightmare for the afl

Here is gus, with helmet, indiscriminately mown down. They will want to set an example

you stand by your principles (and your enterprise risk management framework of which liability is a part) or you do not

Only found out where the word thug came from the other day. Really can call Brayden a thug, thugs had way more going on in their heads than him

 

Thugs, in India, were a gang of professional thieves and assassins who operated from the 14th century and into the 19th. They worked, in general, by joining travelers, gaining their trust … and then murdering them—strangulation was their preferred method—and stealing their valuables.

Massive respect for her. She’s wonderfully articulate and as smart as they come.

I would not be surprised if Laura Kaine does this for all decisions for finals…. Makes sense that all tribunal decisions get  announced through her, but also allows her to make a commonsense ruling to override where Christian can’t make a call.

Sorry to butt in here but I know someone close to the family and I was told today this may be career ending for Gus. There is apparently some clause in his contract re head knocks. I don’t know much more but this is from a reliable source who is very close to the family.

What Absolute Rubbish 

Maynard could have just as easily swung his body to the left to avoid a problem. He didn’t

The more I watch the replay of this act the more it shows how guilty he is and dishonest. 

He ran at full tilt at Gus without ever deviating and then launched.

How did he think he would stop or avoid a collision?

The moment he ran and jumped sealed poor Gus' s fate.

Maynard knew he would crash into Gus and is100% guilty.

I maintain four weeks.

Some of these commentators acting tough that there's nothing in it sound like they've copped too many hits themselves.

Bloody disgraceful to defend it.

Maynard should come clean and accept a punishment if he's really remorseful.  It's a disingenuous attempt to avoid suspension.

Chook, watch it again. Maynard at the last moment moves to the right after a small shuffle step. Bradshaw doesn’t deviate his direction, he leans left as the shoulder comes right at him. Not sure how you see it as the opposite? The angle brings him right into Brayshaws path.

The fact that the thug tried to use his supposed friendship with Gus to manipulate the public perception is disgraceful.

This can’t surely be it. He’s had a really good run with injuries and is playing some of the best football of his career. Can take a whole pre season and rest and get better. 
I truly hope this is not the outcome.

    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
