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.

Petty no doubt has massive intrigue of moving back to SA and playing with his childhood team

Add the fact Adelaide went hard to lure him back would have given him butterfly's 

He will be a Crow come 2025

Jackson put his cue in the rack for season 22 very early on. Despite his total lack of enthusiasm and energy he was selected for most games. If he'd played like he should have and how he played in his first season for Fremantle we may have progressed further in the finals than what we did.

I hope they don't reward Petty with games next year. The writings on the wall. In my view he should rent a house out in Cranbourne to save on his travel expenses. Perhaps the Crows can buy him one in Berwick.

Punishing Petty for Jackson's attitude. Mm-hmm.

Cornes said yesterday Petty is 'desperate' to return home. How would he know and what does desperate mean?

Desperate to do what? ffs

I dont get any of this. Is there someone on this forum close to MFC who knows whats really going on.

If the rumours are true and hes gone then stop recruiting interstate players unless were 100% sure they wont take flight. May and Lever were not interstate players . Lever is from Vic and May has a history in Melbourne.

Probably be better to not take any notice of what Cornes is saying.

Good grief! I forecast months of cringeworthy Cornes substituting Petty for Kozzie in his next made-up story.

Spot on with this comparison.

I think I’m in the minority of people who doesn’t mind listening to Kane Cornes. But you have to do it through the lens of him being a ‘conversation starter’.  He is paid to dial things up and get a reaction.

Petty is open to a return to Adelaide.  That’s fine, so would I for 900k.  He is contracted to Melbourne and we have so far had no right of reply in regards to a contract renewal.  Let this play out.

Pickett never went public with his want to return “home”. Nor did Ports list manager. The deal offered to Pickett never became public knowledge neither did what Port offered. 
Kossie didn’t go playing golf and giving interviews with Ports players during trade week. 
Cornes is a tool but the two situations are very different.

If it hasn't been said already, Corn was saying this exact thing with Kozzie, slightly different circumstances but look at what happened there.

The guy is full of manure.

Absolute garbage. I know for a fact this is not the case. He is more than happy in Melbourne.

Adelaide were absolutely desperate to get him, that's the extent of it....for now.

He's not desperate to move home. If he was, he would of requested a trade and pushed harder for it.

I've said it quite a few times - He listened to their offer, his head was turned by an extra 200K per season, he spoke to Goody & Lamb who said his commitment was required for 2024 in any circumstance. He loves his teammates and he's a good club man. He was happy to return. 

We know we have a job on our hands to keep him. He's been told if he can have a break out season as a forward, he will probably become a $1M per season player for the MFC.

i'd personally want to see two years of forward dominance to justify that sort of $$s

reckon it's well within his capability, injury allowing

The grass is not always greener on the other side with anything in life.

If we match the offer or on par with our other top earners and he stays and our players keep themselves out of the headlines.

I don't like being patronised Goffy. I'm entitled to my opinion and I didn't appreciate your dismissive comment. I was steaming last year about Jackson. Everyone knew he was leaving yet we continued to play him when he was playing single digit games. The club was at fault not Jackson. I don't want this to happen again.

    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.
