Discussion on recent allegations about the use of illicit drugs in football is forbidden
  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    Posting unsubstantiated rumours on this website is strictly forbidden.

    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 issue of illicit drugs in footy, 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


leave it to deever

Hope the players are not as invested in this as we are. We still have a game to win on Friday.

I sure hope they're paying it no attention. I'm on holidays, so I've got an excuse but no sane person should be giving this as much attention as we are.

If you believe in karma like I do, then the Collingwood football club will get theirs.

If not from us, then from someone else. What goes around comes around. 

There may be a few ‘smothers’ handed out in the first quarter of the prelim.  If I was coaching I’d advise players to ‘smother’ the Daicos boys early in the game.  
A football act…

Not in a corrupt AFL it doesn't Jaded.

It's a circus that's very massaged and controlled towards producing preferred outcomes and results as we are about to witness (again... Crippa brownlow, Barry Hall...Premiership!)

Hopefully the ones sitting on the tribunal do too, Macca. 

That's my concern

So Maynard knows that Brayshaw will veer slightly to his right as he was kicking on his right and lined him up accordingly

Basic footy 101 and as you said, Steve, the tribunal members need to know the natural movements

saying maynard had no time to react also says that gus had no time to act, when Maynard came at him like a launched missile or frisby. and that is clearly not the case. Maynard seemed to hunker down and turn his shoulder into gus, so he had time to take action. he had other options, he could have put his arms out and pushed him, tried to catch chest on to him but he did not. this bull about him not bumping, how many players have been found guilty of hitting someone, raising their arm, etc and hitting someone that were not deliberate actions. its the action that counts not the aledged intent that cannot be proven. to say it was not a bump is nonsense, what are they calling it a smother. you smother the ball not the other player.

It’s not in the afl interest that Maynard gets off.. it’s a bad look for the game and they will want to stamp it out and not encourage it. Plenty of parents are already concerned about concussion. They need to show an example of this 

 

25 minutes ago, bandicoot said:

Didn’t the afl just need to prove that Maynard had other options but to bump? 

You’re right… the AFL had many valid arguments that weren’t used. Why wouldn’t they use, for example, the one to which you refer (above)?

 

edit: and the post above this one! @Deecisive brings up yet another great point that should’ve formed part of the AFL’s argument. This thread is full of compelling evidence that just wasn’t presented. Why?!!

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. 

I saw a dark horse in GWS up-and-coming, they might be capable of knocking PA and the pies out of the finals series. Just be patient.

Perhaps explains why there are so many Pies supporters voting on the live blog.

I agree. I think they’re a huge chance especially if Hogan, Riccardi and Greene and Green get off the leash. Man I’d love to see Greene Maynard Maynard in a football act. Then Cox. Rest of their team, I don’t mind. If they could take out 90% of their supporters the world would be a better place.

Really hard to get a read on what the AFL would want here. They need to disincentivise such hits as chook said, plus there’s the litigation, and I’m sure they don’t want Viney conducting tactical Maynards next week and the week like some sort of Exocet Maynard but they’d want a CFC CFC GF. Their lawyer’s arguments weren’t as clinical or forensic in their examination of options, nor did they appear to draw on other options and the training Players must receive in avoiding big hits? Shouldn’t they retain someone or have a couple of go to’s to prosecute these? Woods is a commercial lawyer first and foremost right?

The filth showing the behind the goals vision might be to their own detriment if the Tribunal members are switched on in terms of knowing the natural movements of the player kicking the ball (on the run)

2 of them played footy yeah?  Has Gleeson played?

Ihle (Pies) says Maynard is Car A and Brayshaw is Car B. He notes if Car B veers into Car A’s lane and a collision occurs, it is not blamed on Car A.

 

This has given me unsettling Year 12 maths flashbacks.
 

wtf

Particularly if car A is airborne. 
 

What a ridiculous analogy.

WTF are you talking about, I even posted the Appeal decision in this thread!! 

Not that that decision has anything to do with this one, even though you keep rabbiting on about it. You've also failed to indicate what it is from the Bedford decision might be relevant here, even though you've been asked to do so on a number of occasions.

You have some serious issues.

Mate, tell us where you got your law degree.

You actually need to READ the Bedford decision and UNDERSTAND it. Your lawyer may be able to explain it to you in kindergarten terms. 

Explaining to non-lawyers how one legal decision affects another is just about impossible. Just think why it takes 4-5 years of study to become an apprentice lawyer. Do you think they just teach us how to twiddle our thumbs?

If you are really serious, I suggest we set up a separate thread - "Bedford Decision" - and I can educate you over the next 4 months or so. Other lawyers on here may well pitch in. 

I do have serious issues with the arrogant ignorant.

It's a good analogy but flawed in its premise. Car A was the one in the wrong lane.

    TRAINING: Friday 19th April 2024

    They are out for a run just as it starts raining. It didn't last long, ended up a reasonable session weather wise.  Light duties, BBB, rehab Farris-White, Melky, Salem and Spargo, all with private trainers. They are all playing soccer, huge amount of noise. 36-40 (difficult to get a count) in the main squad, biggest I've seen it in ages. Choco is barking out the orders. Goody has intense body language as he observes. Bowey in a lime green cap (no contact), and in the sim

    ICEBREAKER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons have broken the ice for season 2024 with a pulsating come-from-behind victory over Port Melbourne in which it took the lead for the first time at the halfway mark of the final quarter. The game played in mild Autumn conditions in neutral territory at Kinetic Park, Frankston, never reached great heights in standard but it proved gripping in character at the end at the Casey Demons overcame the Borough to win by 15 points after trailing badly early in the second half.  P

    MAULED by Whispering Jack

    The writing was on the wall from the very first bounce of the football. The big men went up, Max Gawn more often than not, decisively won the ruck hit out and invariably a Brisbane Lions onballer either won the battle on the ground or halved the contest and they went at it repeatedly until they finally won out. Melbourne managed the first goal from Alex Neal-Bullen but after that the visitors shut out every area of Demon presence around the ground except in the ruck duels. It was a mauling.
