  • 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

Why?

The biomechanist’s evidence is going to exclude any consideration of him deliberately turning to bump

this whole thing is going to turn on his decision making and his failure to take a safer path

I have a bad feeling about this

I hope we anticipated this and have someone to provide opposing position

This seems strange. It's a known human reflex to put out your arms and hands to break your fall. It's not a reflex to rotate your hip in the direction of the player you're hitting. That Maynard didn't put out his hands indicates some level of conscious reaction. In fact Maynard even admitted he saw Brayshaw and knew he was there.

it actually could bode well for us, if he had no concious time to reposition his body, then he conciously made the decision prior to jumping off the ground that he was going to make bumping contact with the player, whom he got head high

"Biomechanist: Based on the numbers and research, it's difficult to conclusively say Maynard would've been able to make any conscious decision to reposition his body."

So his unconscious decision was to turn his shoulder into Gus's head.

Should have premeditated it, and known that the collision would occur and be able to mitigate it based on duty of care requirements.

Because he just appeared there from the ether.

His body just flew in the air and turned its shoulder to bump by itself without any brain direction.

Wow, is this person serious?

I swear to god if this Neanderthal gets off I’m done with football. It’s as if he was born with a dropped cumquat for a brain.

My biggest questions are.

1. While deliberation has continued, have they provided Maynard with a colouring book and crayons?

2. Is it a Collingwood colouring book so he only needs one crayon and doesn't get confused having to choose different colours?

The Dutch referee, Charles Corver, was widely and rightly condemned world-wide at the time. His weak excuse was that he was watching the flight of the ball and didn't see the collision. No such excuse for an AFL player under the scrutiny of multiple umpires and TV cameras. The similarity between Schumacher's violent challenge and Maynard's is striking. 

This is typical of the Dutch who have always tried to ingratiate themselves with the Germans because they were never taught to speak German properly. ( That was a German joke, okay!.)

Difficult but it can’t be excluded

he didn’t need to put his hands out as he turned to bump

The AFL needs to make some strongly-worded statement about the utter bull****t dishonesty of Maynard's replies, and hand down a more severe penalty, because of the insult to the intelligence of everyone connected with the game. Otherwise, my prediction is that intelligent people will walk away in their droves.  AFL will be reduced - thanks Braydon and Collingwood's cynical bull****t-spinning lawyers - to the irrelevant and artless nonsense of the old TV wrestling. 

Want Collingwood to be on the TV, whatever it takes?  Ok, but unless we are as stupid as they suggest (when they dish up this drivel with a straight face), we won't give a rats.  I won't be back, for one. Enough is enough.  Thugs picnic, and a TV rating extravaganza?  Is that what we are passionate about?  Psss off.

Doesn’t that establish a pattern / intent for him? They’re trained to not do that, the fact that was his instinct speaks to a deeper inclination

Actually as much as I'd like to string up Tom Browne (who I thought had given up AFL journalism) It was Tom Morris who reported this initially.

So much complexity between the two teams on this incident.  Corey as a former player, Peter Maynard the GM (or CEO) of the Casey Demons FC, as someone else mentioned Kate Hore is dating Brayden's brother too.... Then there is the whole aspect of Brayshaws/Frawleys etc....  

Mea culpa: got my Toms cornfused.

    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
