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.

What evidence do you have that Petty isn’t happy to stay and play for Melbourne? 

Channel 7 Adelaide, Kane Cornes and John Ralph.

The sad part is that these clowns will be running the same story next year, like the WA media with Jackson and will annoy the [censored] out of us.

I think we all know that when you strip away all of the [censored] and the red and blue glasses are taken off of our faces, it’s pretty clear that Petty is going to end up at Adelaide this trade period.

What a shame - I really don’t want to see him go

But…

There’s too much noise - simple.

Yeah, i tend to agree to be honest, I don't think this one is over. 

if he does go i wouldn't sign off on less than 10, 14 and McAdam. if we're losing Petty lets at least make sure we get Harley Reid out of it 

6,10,11 should get the deal done you'd imagine

To me it all just seems a little too contrived. 
 

I hope I’m wrong and @Dannyz is right.

If we can get the necessary picks to satisfy WCE for pick 1, reckon we trade him

Had a feeling this would be the case. Not a good sign if we are having breakfast with the enemy.

I just can't see us trading a young key position player without an adequate replacement.

Petty out means a backline of May, Lever and Tomlinson and a fwd line of JvR and hope that Brown or McDonald don't fall apart. Maybe fullarton.

We kiss any chance of a premiership success goodbye imo, he is that important.

We're only taking two picks to the draft anyway and I'm not sure pick 10 helps us get Reid.

Just because Adelaide want him doesn't mean we should bow to their wishes and shoot ourselves in the foot in the process.

I love Petty to bits, i want him to stay as do all us Demons, but I reckon Petty knows deep down he's one injury away from screwing his future up here.

Was the deal 5 years, 1m the first year then 800k the next four?

Will this offer be there for him in 1-2 years time? I don't reckon it will be. He's stated he wants to come back to Adelaide.

Im looking at this from a different lens here, I believe his Partner is from Adelaide? also if they want to start a family in the next 3-4 years his partners parents are going to be helping out part of the time would he get that help in Melbourne with no family? No way.

He is very injury prone, he was injured twice this year playing as a Forward, a significant history with injuries.

If he gets injured again his value will significantly drop from a draft point of view, if he's going to leave next year we won't see this deal again

If this offer from the Crows is Thilthorpe or Fogarty, Pick 10 and McAdam for Petty if it eventuates take it and run i say.

I'd even squeeze them for pick 14 aswell and throw in Neal Bullen or Chandler.

Problem is they won't give up either of those players. Both are from Adelaide and both are contracted. This is a massive free-kick to Adelaide if we let him walk.

Plus their original offer was pick 14 which was our pick. I don't even think we can legally receive that back. But if we can, they bought that from the Gold Coast Suns for two mid 20s picks. Petty is worth more than that. Particularly to us with limited key position depth.

I would only except on those terms.

If they want him that much they will come to the party.

We have tried for Fogarty before.

If we do this we will get Reid, plus a Forward Fogarty and McAdam.

Petty is 23, is already at elite level at either end of the field and has his best years ahead of him. I know his current lisfranc problem is worrying but every AFL player runs the ever-present risk of injury. I am sure the club will be doing its best to tie him to a long-term contract by the end of next season. And if he has an outstanding season in 2024 he can stay with us and still demand the big bucks. Like any other outsider, I have no inside knowledge of his personal thoughts but I really hope he decides to become a one-club player. We missed him badly in the finals.

If we lost Petty for picks and are playing Fullarton every game it’s rebuild time

mini rebuild. 4-5 top quality draft picks over two years then bang. or whimper. i dunno

No way do the deal for picks alone... must get a forward...

Fogarty and whatever picks give us pick 1 all tied up in the same deal..

So Crows get Petty

Dee's get Fogarty, Reid 

WCE get pick 6, 10,11

I agree with you here. I think there's a bit to play out with this.

There is enough smoke out there to suggest that Petty has strongly considered returning home.

If he doesn’t come out and ask for a trade then he’s clearly very comfortable and committed to stay. 

You don't need to be unhappy in wanting to go nor do you need to officially request a trade, Grundy never formally requested a trade from either Collingwood or Melbourne. Probably just simply wants to be closer to home which is a not an issue imo.

The fact that it still had to take Simon Goodwin to actually sit down with him and convince him otherwise suggest he's has had serious considerations.

I think this works from the club’s perspective as well as Harrison’s. They might never get this currency for Petts again.

For all the same reasons listed, it makes sense for both parties

I'd be very suprised if the offer was anything more than 10 + 20 + McAdam, which I don't think we accept. If fogarty or THRILLTHORPE are involved then you have to look at it, but I would be shocked if this is the case. That sort of trade just doesn't really happen. While we know how good Petty is, we are also likely undervaluing the potential of someone like thilthorpe in the same way other clubs and non-dees following media figures undervalue Petty.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 07 vs Richmond

    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.

    Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin ventured down to Gosch's Paddock to bring you his observations from this morning's Captain's Run including some hints at the changes for our ANZAC Eve clash against the Tigers. Sunny, though a touch windy, this morning, 23 of them no emergencies.  Forwards out first. Harrison Petty, JvR, Jack Billings, Kade Chandler, Kozzy, Bayley Fritsch, and coach Stafford.  The backs join them, Steven May, Jake Lever, Woey, Judd McVee, Blake Howes, Tom McDonald

    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

    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.
