  • 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.


Any word on Angus?

Caro mentioned it was Gawn and Petracca at Brayshaws house when Maynard turned up.

Remember in the direct post siren flurry on King's Birthday it was Maynard breaking up Cox from Trac? I can therefore assume it was Max that left the room...?

It was Max who let Maynard into the house according to Caro.

You know [censored] is bad when Max Gawn is so angry he has to leave a room. This is a man who gets literally punched in the head and kneed in the ribs illegally 12 times a quarter and never ever retaliates back. 

He and Gus are extremely close. He must be incredibly upset about this situation.

Just watched the incident again and feel like punching a hole in the TV. Maynard carrying on first pumping his mates after that makes me sick. Can't wait to see him rubbed out and miss out on the rest of the season.

Well, Jack has his hand around Maynard's throat in response, so I'm not sure we want to be dredging that headbutt moment up too much.

Did you see the steam coming out of Jacks ears.  I’m incredibly proud of the restraint he showed, to not get rubbed out himself, that was true leadership by Jack.  If that was the grand final I can’t tell you what sort of carnage would have ensued….

The whole thing sounded so flimsy. As if you'd just rock up to someone's house unannounced after a situation like that. I know he tried calling Gus's mother but was apparently met with resistance. Without knowing everything it sounds like Brayden really needed to read the room better, even trying this stunt next week would have been better than in the days after.

Has anyone else read this on SEN?

Seems awfully desperate to make amends which to me seems like he’s feeling guilty more than anything. If it was a complete accident, I’m not sure he’d go to these lengths. Also, who doesn’t call ahead?

Fugging oath it was awkward!, that stain directly contributed to us playing with a man less i.e Laurie playing 95% game time. 

I thought he'd broken his neck the way he was laid out.

It keeps having the stink of the domestic violence perpetrator.

Maynard the routine thug with a long record of low acts and cheap shots that could have caused an injury like this at any time. He's got a crowd of 'mates' who cheer him on every time.

When it finally happens there is a moment where he and the mates actively celebrates the 'successful' hit, and then reality kicks in and he goes into high-speed excuse mode 'oh it was just one time and it was an accident and they also contributed to it I really love them and I'm really upset about it all please stop victimising me' and the mates all rally around him for his record of tough-but-fair because 'there hasn't been an injury like this before.

Followed up with the thoughtless and rote-learned sorry ritual, 'I brought choccies, luv, you can have them as soon as they've removed the wireframe from your jaw'. Seriously, bringing wine to someone with severe concussion is a special touch which just emphasizes how much the apology was about the look.

It'll be a very short space of time before we see anyone who is 'still hanging on to that past issue' being mocked and sidelined in the media.

The other analogy would be to the chronic dangerous driver being shocked that they killed a couple of children after spinning out of control, and begging for sympathy because it was a 'freak accident' that had no control over.

Put money it was Steven May or Jack Viney.

This reaction from May sums it up.

Geez that picture makes you feel sorry for Gus. He wasn't concussed he was totally old cold and for a while. Maynard was flying at Gus before he jumped for whatever reason. I now the blokes no genius but he's played enough footy to know he would have collided with Gus after making a beeline at him from ten metres away. Regardless of if it costs us a flag or what punishment does or doesn't transpire, I just hope Gus is ok. But I can't imagine he will be. Psychologically it's going to have scars and I wouldn't be at all surprised if he called it quits.

Gawn gave Maynard a mouthful when Maynard couched down to check on Brayshaw when the stretcher was coming. You can see him do it in the background, so not surprised if it was Gawn. Gawn and Gus are basically best mates.

Sometimes I tend to look at the simple things that matter in an incident. In this case which Melbourne player has a history of concussion issues and infact wears a helmut because of it. Angus Brayshaw. Which filth player is the dirtiest mongrel in their side. Maynard.  Add to the fact that Brayshaw is one of Melbournes prime ball movers and Maynard is nothing but a rabid september magpie. It is the start of a final. 2 + 2 = 4 not 78

Yep it looks like he tells him to get the [censored] away from him

Serious question, if we somehow made the Grand final and played Collingwood, and Brayshaw played, would the Collingwood supporters boo him? I honestly think they would. Some of the comments coming out has shown how classless Pies supporters are.

So good to see Gus back on the track. Wouldn't have thought he would be allowed to be running. But so great to see him back on the track.

Checked old mate Dr Google which said

In light of new and improved research, we now recommend light exercise as early as within 3-5 days post-injury.

I hope they boo him and I hope he kicks a goal, turns around and gives them the finger. 
And that Hibbo in his last game goes out with a bang smashing a few ribs and legs.

Brayshaw shouldn't and won't play this year.

Sadly he had a game to forget. I wonder whether he too affected by the damage to his mate...

    SCRUTINY & RESILIENCE by Whispering Jack

    If the week when preseason training melds into scratch matches with other clubs, is the first marker for the beginning of a new season, then this has certainly been a torrid opener for the Melbourne Football Club in its campaign to remain a leading AFL premiership contender in 2024. The Demons were already under enormous scrutiny from the media and football’s fan base (including their own) after consecutive straight-sets finals exits, with Clayton Oliver’s well documented woes, the Joel Smi

    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. 😢
