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.

If Harry Petty is being offered money like that i'd expect a formal trade request very soon

Why? We would be able to match that deal. In fact I would be shocked if we don’t have an extension on the table for him if he’s willing to commit beyond the next 2 years.

Would you pay Harry Petty who is currently recovering from a very serious foot injury 800-900k a year? 

I rate the kid, but no way in the world i'd be spending that sort of money on him

I don’t think the Crows would either if they worried his foot was a bust. 

Bottom line is, he is contracted. We need to back ourselves to keep him. If he has a great season and he still wants to go home we can trade him for even more. If this was his last year of contract I’d consider it. But with two years it’s pointless to trade him now.

Sadly I have to agree with you, there’s too much smoke to be nothing….

when playing, he’s one of my favourites.  Will be a massive loss.

Melbourne have said they won’t trade him, he’s contracted, the salary cap is going up, he puts together a good year next year he’ll get offered plenty to stay.

And we have now freed up so much cap space and we have already signed on our key stars for long term contracts. In my completely uneducated opinion this feels to me like a manager trying to get more $$$ for their client from their current club

The day Tom Morris doesn’t post negative news about Melbourne or one of its players, is the day pigs will fly 

Looking forward to Tom breaking the story about a specific instance of our poor culture.👌

Except we don't need to pay anymore for him now. He's already contracted for a further two years. The next contract will be the big one, Jonathan.

They've got 10, 14, 20 - though then nothing after that. 

Unless that turns in to pick 1, would we do it?

We can get out pick back... haha

Or he might get the sack again, we can only hope.

IF things progress on this front, Melbourne should use McKay compensation as guide for Perry’s worth. 

The sheer optics of Petty going in the same window as McKay a lesser return would be shocking for the fan base.

No worries - but Gil or Dill would find some deceitful way of justifying it.

    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
