Posting Unsubstantiated Rumours on this Website is Strictly Forbidden
  • 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.

a fair onboarding. 


Grigg already gone to GC AFAIK.

I’m also reliably told that he has character issues that would see some of the alleged behaviour by our coach pale in comparison. Happy for him to be elsewhere.

I know he's heavily involved in the media these days but I'd love to get Nathan Buckley. whenever he provides his analysis on football tactics and strategy I listen carefully. One of the smartest men in the room and he would have an immediate impact on our playing group. I also remember hearing he was a Melbourne supporter growing up even though he has been linked with Collingwood for most of his adult life.

Would love Bucks, also for the aura and respect he'd command. 

Names like his walking into a club would immediately make the players straighten up and want to impress. You can never have enough of those types of figures at clubs imv.

Making too much money in the media, to lose it for an assistant coaching job.

Sued for defamation by a person that by now you know @Demonland will not let anyone mention. A person whose own ego is driving a vendetta against your coach. And by extension your club. To drive home a point that humans are in fact human. That we are defined by the empathy we show or we don’t. 
 

And here you are pontificating and posturing with that person’s activities and proclivities as the damnation of the board. But memory and history are the same on this; that person was removed and then the club unified and galvanised. But those with little to say but plenty to whine about have to yell something don’t they?

Oh, and my god you’re an easy bite. I kiss you and throw you back - I have had my fun. Have a good swim.

My goodness, you are fired up, late on a Sunday night.

But your fundamental point is that the "Great and the Good" shall choose our Board, and those deplorable members should hand over their dosh; shout their lungs out, but otherwise stay well away. 

Not how a members' Club should work my friend.

HD 

I believe Harper Valley PTA are in strife. Could you please take an unlimited amount of your very available free hours to go over and check their Bona fixes etc. 

No need to report back till 2030 by then we will have 100,000 members  and 15 Flags and none of our current Board will be around. 

PS see yourself out. 
Oh not sure we will have the Admin. rooms by then to meet you so under a tree at Goschs at training sounds fine!

Should the replacement come from within and be Chaplin? Surely the next step for him would be a Senior Assistant role?

Yep, I think so. He's got his level 4 coaching, if he wants to become a senior coach, the next step is becoming essentially the senior assistant.

It's then about whether he keeps the defensive responsibility or takes mids or forwards, along with the game day strategy.

Can you please go back to your boring thread about board governance? This is a thread about coaching!

I think moving Chaplin would be a mistake; he is doing an outstanding job in defence.

 

 What about Richardson? Couldn't he be the game day strategist? He always did a good strategy job against us when he was at St Kilda....

Richo should stay as Head of footy IMO, but who really knows? We don't have a great insight as supporters.

Fair enough - I will also pass your message onto rpfc who posted on this thread:  Like with Board appointments, FMD I am glad fans have little say with appointing Yze’s replacement. 

By and large - NFI.

I wholeheartedly agree!

It would be great to get Nathan Buckley at the Demons.

Brenton Sanderson is another name mentioned that could be an option for us. He is currently coaching the Balwyn Tigers in the EFL, I think? He may be worthwhile giving another opportunity at AFL level?

Rodney Eade could also be a possible alternative choice too? Although, I don't know if he has retired from coaching or not? He was coach of the Balwyn Tigers in the EFL as well....but that was a few years ago.

Anyway, I am sure the Melbourne Football Club will have plenty of applicants for our vacant assistant coaching roles.

Im not your friend, pal.

I have said this before and you choose not to get it to move on with your life - ‘administrations’ should be just that. They should get who they want for what they want and then they can get turfed out when they get turfed out. Democracy needs that to function - your ideal of elections of ‘diverse opinions’ of mates of yours just destabilise the board and cause issues. So you can stay in your naive little fairyland if you want to but there is no flag, no 70k members, and no stable club without this admin being able to be a unified group - and yes, unified enough to knife a bad egg trying to ruin a coach and deal with the consequences in court that you love to hang them with.

Ollie fan won't be happy - you're on the wrong thread.

He was actually alright. An 'in and under' player we lacked in that era. Had niggling injuries with us. We should have kept him.

He didn't want to play for us...

    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
