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.

If ever you visit Harrison's home town of Wudinna,  I can highly recommend Wudinna Farm View as a place to stay. Beautifully presented and great value. 

The town has terrible inflation, if the pub is any indicator, however.  I had 3 glasses of wine one night, the cost of which rose by $1 each visit to the Bar. A fellow patron brought a 40 pack of smokes - $100. This was over 2years ago.

The simplicity of toxicity creating price inelasticity.

It was clear from the moment we drafted him. Anybody with a double letter in their surname or nickname is at great risk of leaving early. What other evidence did we need?

(It was probably not quite so obvious when we drafted Jordon. Did we know his nickname was JJ?) 

Rivers, Nev Jetta, Stephen/Matthew Febey, Woewodin (was moved on), Petracca, Neale-Bullen and I could go on but basically we can throw anything in to provide an alternative view

I think we need to be careful with what’s in the media on this as as we saw with Kozzie, Oliver, Petty and numerous others Cornes, the old Rendell gang (RIP), Barrett etc have much more positive relations with Port and Adelaide than they do with our club. Especially after a number of those people went our club and particularly our coach, so hard in the off-season, to the point apologies were required. 
The Kozzie trade talk was all engineered by Port, attempting to give them an advantage, also the Oliver to Adelaide story and most of what we are hearing with regards to Petty is coming from Adelaide as well. Our club isn’t perfect but it would appear we don’t leak unintentionally (Oliver was clearly intentional and made Adelaide and their media look very silly!). 
The Petty situation is unique. Conventional wisdom would say if he’s thinking of going after the contract is over, conventionally we would trade him at the end of this year so we get something for him. However, he may be worth more to us for two years where he puts us in premiership contention and allows our young KPFs to develop than the extra picks we may get at this years end. And ultimately he’s contracted and it’s our call. All the other noise is Adelaide types trying to get him earlier, buyer beware.

I'm not sure what that means.

We did the Nullarbor crossing (which I loved) in '22 and the accommodation was varied to say the least. The Farm View was easily the best value for money on the trip. I don't know the proprietors from a bar of soap. I deliberately chose Wudinna knowing Harrison is from there and was curious. 

I was initially going to say I couldn't understand the pull back home,  but ours was a one night stopover with no time for exploring, so that would have been unfair. Especially with family, friends and memories there. 

All that said, it's a long way from Adelaide and like many, I suspect $$$ is the main attraction.  And tbh, if the figures quoted are correct,  I won't begrudge him.

Censorship algorithm needs to be refined for context.  [censored] for tat, the pretty little bird the blue [censored],  OK, unlike those seen in a topless bar.

Same goes for the common nickname for anyone called Richard, and the commonly used word for a cat.

Adelaide's Father and son Tyler Welsh prospect will most likely be a first round pick. His highlights package was impressive to watch. Callum Twomey indicated he will leave Woodville-West Torrens his SANFL club to play with the Crows SANFL Team. My question does Adelaide have enough draft capital to get Welsh and have another crack at Petty.

They'll aim to offload their 1st round pick, maybe as part of a Petty deal, rather than waste it in points for Welsh

The AFL has indicated it intends to change the process for using points for father-son and Academy picks. If I understand the speculation correctly (and it is still just speculation) the AFL is looking at making clubs use earlier round picks instead of multiple later round picks. The thinking is that the current process where a club can bundle up (say) picks 42, 45, 46 and 50 to accumulate the same points as a first round draft pick, makes a mockery of the system. Whether any changes come into effect in 2024 also remain to be seen. Nevertheless, if there's to be a change of this type AND if it comes into effect in 2024, it might make deals like this one more difficult to achieve.

it's going to come into effect in 2025, right when we need to jettison our first round pick for kalani white

Half time reporters tonight stating the Crows confident he'll be in their colours next year.

While not giving up hope on retaining him, I might just have to add them to the 2.0 deathride.

He is contracted next year isn’t he ?  
 

Then they will need to come up with some very very good draft picks - not sure how that happens

We'll see. He needs to get fit and back on the field first.

great season in 21 but has been patchy since mainly due to injury interruptions. no doubt he's a quality player but his injury profile is the big concern.

Due for a return against the Hawks.  Fingers crossed.

if he goes, he goes - we'll get something for him and the crom will make him a very highly paid young man

he's not out of contract and he's not a free agent

He would be a big loss and put a massive hole in our list

We must extract the maximum trade here.

That moment has passed.

Maximum trade value was last yr when he was still in contract. Mid-ish first rounder is what the offer will be otherwise they’ll threaten to take him to pre-season draft where everyone will baulk at his heavily front-ended deal and desire to be back home.

Goodwin gambled on him being a critical piece in a premiership tilt this year. I don’t blame Goodwin, but it isn’t looking great for us at the moment.

He’s contracted in 25. They have to pay up for a mid range tall. Cut him, time to reboot with some top class youth. The last thing we need to do is start topping up with ageing NQR’s like Billing’s. Gets you nowhere.

Worth noting that;

- half time reporter was Theodore Doropolous 

- Theo has just scored the job of his lifetime with ch7 in Melbourne

- Theo is from Adelaide

- if I were Theo I’d be leveraging my network back home to score early points in my new plush gig 

- Theo has 6 O’s n his name. Can’t be trusted.

    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.
