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

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’?

 

Sorry i have read your post 3 times and have no idea what point you are trying to make.

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

Viney's response was somewhat revealing: he had a perfect view of the incident from 'about to happen' to 'it happened' and it was no prediction - 'was going to happen' due to Maynard's attitude was pre-determined (probably an instruction from their coach to one or two players). Viney went for him in response. Normal witnesses are called in most legal matters, was Viney?

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.

Did you read back what you wrote?

Seriously, did you read that comment and get to the end of it and think ‘yes, I’m happy with this sentiment, it accurately represents what I think and I’m happy to post it on the internet for other people to see.’

Is that the thought process that happened? Or will you read this in 24 hours and regret it do you think? 
 

If you don’t regret then that’s all good and I’ll just say these are the words of an absolute meat head.

"Maynard himself said in evidence that he didn’t see Brayshaw coming until the last moment.

“I turned my head to land thought ‘[censored], he is there’,” Maynard said."

 

Sorry if I make a mistake as I am laughing hysterically. Player runs forward and jumps up to smother nothing, as he actually didn't see anyone with the ball, until he was coming down to land.

FMD is this serious?

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

So you're in the camp that believes Maynard's act was an accident?

@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.

He actually admitted it was a disgraceful act to me. That could be remorse or not, but it was many years later.

But that’s sweet yeah? As you and others are doing the same thing,  so if they do it, you can do it.

Is any of the other AFL fans that are not MFC, upset about this outcome?

The sake of the game is in the balance, as duty of care has been relegated to, there are times when hits to the head are not sanctioned. 

I've seen a lot of Carlton and Essendon fans wishing he got suspended

This thread jumped the shark many pages ago. Sit back and enjoy it.  It's up there with match day threads!

Mate this thread is off it’s head. The things people are saying in here will haunt them for a very long time. 
 

I feel sympathetic embarrassment honestly.

    OOZEE by The Oracle

    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

    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.
