  • 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

JVR gets a week and disgraceful tribunal lets Maynard off. Tells you all you need to know about the thugs  running the AFL, not to mention their goons and cheer squad in the media. Bring on class actions and get these glass box execs into a courtroom where they can  defend their  "footy actions" in a public forum.

I'm glad I moved to Byron Bay where no one gives a [censored] about AFL and I can forget about football for a while. 

Oh that reminds me of Uncle Byron Pickett. And I thought we had moved on but we haven’t.

Melbourne player suspended.

Collingwood?  No worries.

100% corruption in all major sports around the world but for different reasons.

We all new this was the likely outcome.

The media will back the AFL 100%.

Theyre all corporate people .

This marathon tribunal will be forgotten very quickly.

Finals start again in 4 days.

Brace for impact.

I’m the same (and nearby, just past Bangalow en route to Lismore). There’s a few of us Dees around.

This makes familial relations hard given in laws are all Pies as is wife

 I’m done with this sport. So disheartening. Emailing Pert.

Really starting to question whether I can be bothered following this competition any more. So disillusioned with the double standards to the point of corruption where the power brokers in the AFL manipulate everything from the draw to the tribunal outcomes to maximise profits. This is a prime example.

Feel sorry for the 12,000+ schoolkids who will get poleaxed next season 

I just cant fathom this.

Weve been beaten up on again by a bunch of thugs and fully sanctioned by the AFL including several other incidents in that game.

Incompetent or else they were drawing out all their arguments against which to appeal 

What would Occam say?

It was a stunningly poor prosecution.  Gleeson is often like a ferret after a rabbit ... but not tonight.  Soft as butter

If you were trying to lose you couldn't have done a better job of it

They should appeal but judging by tonight's effort, is that going to happen?

Suspect we'll see some rule changes next season.

 

For me this was the point of the joint referral by Kane and Christiansen. Under the current rules a player does not owe a duty of care to another player, which was tested in the Van Rooyen / Ballard report. I think the AFL knew the report would not be upheld but needed to put it through the process and will change the rules going into next season.

ZERO respect for the AFL now. They were losing all credibility before this but this is last straw for me. No integrity whatsoever. Players welfare, integrity of the comp matters zero to them. As long as the media and cash machine keeps chugging along. Go and get stuffed

[censored] off Howe. You feel sorry for that thug??? Oh my god. You’re a bigger piece of [censored] than I thought you were. How about feeling sorry for Gus? What a despicable person you are.

It’s done. Laws will be changed in the off season to ensure this act is penalised going forward.

I disagree with the verdict but we need to move on. The team have a huge game and can’t afford to dwell on this.

I really hope Gus is ok. My thoughts are with him.

And I hope Maynard gets his comeuppance someday. Can't stand the bloke.

May as well have brought JVR to the tribunal seeing the tribunal will be throwing cases out like hard rubbish.

Nothing surer than Martin being free to play.

Your right, it's pardons a plenty.

I'm am piss3d off. Imagine how Gus's family and mates and he feels.

However frustrated you and I feel, wishing physical harm on a player is not called for. 
 

Reverse the roles an imagine what you would say if other teams wished harm on one of our players

They did. They cheered and chanted at him whilst being carried off. 
I know where you’re coming from but the outcome isn’t just.

    Angus Brayshaw Forced into Retirement

    After 167 games including the drought breaking Premiership Angus Brayshaw has made the heart breaking decision to medically retire from football as a result of a series of serious head knocks over his nearly decade of footy. We wish Gus all the best and he'll always be a hero at Demonland. 😢
