  • 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

"Ihle (Pies) says Maynard's hands go to the right, but his centre of mass does not move to the right. He says at this point a collision is "not inevitable" and "not even likely". It is Brayshaw's movement inward that changes this, he says."

That's going a bit far.

No collision, WOW. From the enforcer,  LOL.

If he followed the ball, and Gus falling a bit right, he wouldn't have done his job (to hurt).

Chook, it's funny how cricketers only have less than half a second when facing fast bowling, to play or let it go, to go forward or to go back, to defend or to attack the ball. There are 3 decisions at least to be made in that time and then to execute that decision all in less than half a second. Maynard had about the same time to make one decision - do I evade him or do i hurt him? And he doesn't have time to do that? What BS.

I was actually going to say that recently. We praise cricketers for this skill, having someone running down and bowling a million miles an hour with a split second to decide what you're going to do. It can be done.

Watch the side angle again.
 

I’d love the biomechanics expert to explain how Maynard is tucked up with his shoulder leaning in as the ball is kicked, but Brayshaw has time to pull both arms in front and try and push off.

If there’s not enough time for one, there seems to be for another. This is hot garbage.

So yep, roughly .25 of a second to not only react but play the shot from a fast bowler.

Why get the biomechanics bloke in if you’re effing lawyer is trying to justify Maynard’s body movement?

I’m not wasting anymore time on this cluster-[censored]. I should’ve known better than to cling on to a little sliver of hope that justice would prevail. So disappointed and angry… but not surprised.

learned deliberations about patent lying.  What a farce.  The guy is a thug, said he'd do it in the week before, and they end up blaming Gus.  Splitting the second and pontificating clearly drivel assertions.  And oh, retire to deliberate! 

This is just pretence.  A bit of AFL theatre, for ratings.  Nothing to do with sport, or proper skills, or duty of care, or any other valuable possibility..  

A lifetime of caring; and MFC has worked and worked to build culture, to develop players, all this - and all our believing - and it doesn't mean jacksheeyit when the Grand Final build-up threatens to displease the biggest stakeholders.  What utter trash this all is.  Is anything going to matter, from here?  The price of entry is pretending the Emperor looks fine.

Hang on half a sec.  400 millisecs is nearly 1/2 a sec.  Any decent footballer can do things in that time.

Agree Sue, that is ample time. A cricket fast bowler can bowl at 150km/hr that's more than 40m/sec. The cricket pitch is half that long so the ball travels the distance in less than half a second and expert athletes are able to play the ball. Even most tail enders can.

Ihle (Pies) has requested more straws. All of their current supply has been clutched.

Sorry, PD, but they have set up the Appeal really well. I keep asking people on here to read the Toby Bedford decision. Nobody on here has taken me up on that. Now I get criticism for repeating myself. Why would I not when nobody listens? Read the Bedford decision FCS. Football action, fractions of seconds, live footage. Maynard will be exonerated on Appeal.

"Gleeson: The duty of care is informed by what is reasonable, not the expectation of the remarkable. Maynard won't be found careless if we find he simply failed to do the remarkable."

Wow, if he acted reasonable before he could do the remarkable, then he wouldn't be a concussion causing projectile. 

Duty of care before he launched.

If so I'd argue we smother at every turn but it's good we don't roll that way.

    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
