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

Gee, all this stuff from posters that we are going to get tough and hurt players because Maynard got off is laughable. Who in the hell from our team other than Viney will show any aggression. Fritta maybe ? Your joking. He doesn't even spoil Quaynor or block a player in the goal line when a goal was imminent. We haven't a hard nosed player in this team other than Viney and even he can't come up against the likes of Maynard. Maybe we can turn to Langdon, Chandler, Laurie, Spargo, BBB and the likes. Wouldn't worry me and I'm 70 odd.

Let's all just get back to reality and hope in hell we can bring our A game on Friday and live another day. Just maybe a win then another against the Lions and get the Pies in the GF and the just play the ball and win. Wouldn't that be nice!. Firstly we have the Blues to get over.

 

There were about 6 players who were more concerned about helping their knocked out mate, then flying the flag. They had their priorities right.

Viney, May, Oliver, Petracca, Pickett, Sparrow, are all hard nuts

It actually won't at all 'Earl', if anything it makes matters worse for them.

Any legal action will make the point that the AFL rules weren't strong enough to protect the ball player.

This decision will come back and bite hard.

I don't think they have any option but to appeal.

Agreed.

They had their opportunity to stand up for their club and their mate and with the exception of Viney were meek as pussycats. 

100%.  Bar Viney the response was shizen.  There's no other enforcers unfortunately

Clearly you forgot about Steven May. 
I can name as many Pies players as you listed Melbourne players who wouldn’t go the man either. Or do you think Will Hoskin Elliot is a tough guy? 😂

Plenty of guys in our side who could hurt an opponent. But wouldn’t because they are focused on playing the ball not the man. Shame the same can’t be said for pieces of scum like Maynard, Cox and De Goey 

When we played Collingwood on QB we physically bullied them all over the ground. No doubt their first quarter in the QF was a statement and we got caught out. We need to focus one week at a time and then smash GWS in the GF.  How good was it to see Gus running laps today?

I have been angry since Friday night 

Another 48 hours will make no difference. 
We were a man down, 1 minute into a Final and it’s all Angus’ fault 

It’s “on”

Ok cool.

The next Collingwood elbow that lands on a Melbourne player’s chin, it’s cool because it’s ‘ON’ yes?

JVR did it so it’s now open slather. 
 

Love the zero logic and complete lack of awareness that’s going on. 

Remember, my point is based upon Jaded wishing Howe injury.
 

So, if Collingwood fans were to wish JVR or any other Melbourne player injury based upon what JVR did, then it’s all fair yes? Because it’s ‘on’?

Has anyone on here read the findings. This line.

Brayshaw could’ve executed his kick in a different direction or in a different manner, landed in a different manner or in a slightly different location.

Y'know if Brayshaw just called in sick on Thursday this whole sorry mess could've been avoided.

They'll close the loophole now ... even if a player was able to reproduce Maynard's planned assault, the next player up will almost certainly cop a suspension

The punters would then point at the Maynard incident but because the AFL are a law unto themselves, they'll put some spin on it and Bob's your Uncle

Yes that is also true but would depend on the club/player in question.

Regardless no one knows who will be favoured and who wouldn’t so again, the act is now legal in the eyes of the AFL.

It isn’t even close to common assault 😂 steady on mate 

Actually that's an interesting observation. It got me wondering and thankfully it didn't come to this but if Gus had died because of this incident would Maynard be charged with manslaughter? Never mind class actions, scum like Maynard might need to look at what the ultimate ramifications could be.

@WalkingCivilWar @gregdemon

 

The next time we play the pies and some Collingwood player ‘tests’ out JVR’s jaw with their elbow, then I trust you’ll be all there saying whatever injury that happens is fair retribution and supporting Collingwood supporters pointing to his suspension is as why he deserves it. 
 

I don’t agree with this call, I don’t like that Cox did that to Maxy, but maintain a bit of dignity and be better than dog Collingwood supporters? 

 

Jadeds post was wishing (its implicit in the statement ‘test out that mangled arm’) Howe physical harm, that’s not on. 

Nah stuff that, it's fair game. It's always been fair game.

If we play the Pies in the GF I want to see Viney's elbow in Sidebottom's jaw at the first bounce. Collingwood are cowards, only fight when they have strength of numbers - see Maynard/Sidebottom on Langdon last year, Maxwell et al on Watts in 2008. They've always been like that, it's their culture. Their supporters are no different, they act like hoons because they have numbers, one on one they are just another nuffie.

Gotta brace for the fact the Collingwood Army is worth 3 goals and the club is 2 wins from the flag. 

Never underestimate the power of the Colliwobbles.

If we don't get through, Brisbane will maul them. Already done it twice this year.

They have been wishing Gus and his entire family ill all week. Clearly you’ve missed it.

When Sean Abbott unfortunately bowled that delivery that hit Phillip Hughes it was just seen as an unfortunate freak accident

Gee how disappointing is that. He absolutely deserved weeks.

There’s no point throwing the toys out of the cot as a club.

The players role is to play 4 quarters Friday, our role as fans is to turn up and be louder than we’ve ever been. Control what we can control.

Any updates from @KC from Casey on the Maynard's legacy eg. names removed from honour boards and the like or resignation from Maynard Snr GM role at Casey?

Would never expect him or any Maynard back at Casey ever after this 💩 storm.

On that day I was 15 metres from where it happened and I was ready to run onto the ground. I thought he could be paralysed.

I met Long years later at a horse sale and was introduced to him.

I told him I liked him as a player but that it was the worst act I had ever seen on a footy field and he agreed.

@Redleg I'd be super interested in your impressions of remorse or otherwise, and any other details you'd care to share either here or DM, the veneration of Long has always rung hollow to me and am interested in genuine interactions. I am passionately pro-reconciliation but don't want Long near the process because I see him as tainted. The act that day was shocking and have burnt about it.

It is but it isn't ... do you trust anything coming out of AFL HQ?  I don't and tonight's my final lesson in thinking that the right thing will be done in a consistent manner

I've long felt that to get the same sort of favouritism that the big clubs get we need to become one of those big clubs.  You can't fight City hall

The same thing happens in big sport all around the world.  The big clubs have got the clout

But it's a long haul for us because we lost generations of possible supporters because we were down for so long

But hey, we've got a good team now that should get better (we're good recruiters now) and we've now got 70k members.  So we're not far off.  In 2017 I believe we only had 40k members

Another 5-7 years of constant finals and our membership will sky-rocket

We just need to keep contending and the flags will come

    It's Game Day and the Demons once again open the round of football with their annual clash against Richmond on ANZAC Eve. The Tigers, coached by former Dees champion and Premiership assistant coach Adem Yze have a plethora of stars missing due to injury but beware the wounded Tiger. The Dees will have to be switched on tonight. A win will keep them in the hunt for the Top 4 whilst a loss could see them fall out of the 8 for the first time since 2020.

    There’s a touch of irony in the fact that Adem Yze played his first game for Melbourne in Round 13, 1995 against the club he now coaches. For that game, he wore the number 44 guernsey and got six touches in a game the team won by 11 points.  The man whose first name was often misspelled, soon changed to the number 13 and it turned out lucky for him. He became a highly revered Demon with a record of 271 games during which his presence was acknowledged by the fans with the chant of “Oozee” wh

    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.

    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
