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.

Can I make a double entendre joke involving Petty’s name and the behaviour of being petty?

Too obvious?

Too obvious and I shouldn’t bother?

And I should be [censored] up the [censored] until my [censored] is [censored]?

Jesus, it’s just a joke…

He's obviously having serious consideration of going home. There's enough smoke there.

Do we cash in now with one of Adelaide's early picks or do we wait until free agency.

There is also the consideration with his foot injury. From what I heard it was a pretty significant injury to the point where there is some ongoing concerns whether it'll hold up to the rigours of AFL level in years to come.

I wouldn't be surprised if eventually Petty does go back home to SA whether that's this period or free agency.

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. 

I love Petty but he is not worth 800k a year, we can’t be held to ransom

Jesus. Did you have a ‘petty’ joke all lined up? Tell it to your probation officer then, it’s fine.

On the assumption we're chips in on next year's flag rather than taking a potential step back:

Petty should only be traded if Harry McKay or an equivalent proven key forward is coming through the doors. And even McKay won't solve our atrocious conversion for goal under pressure (although he once kicked 58.33 in a season)

I cannot fathom how the list management and coaching team will be confident of winning next year's flag with T Mac, BBB and JVR as our 3 best key forwards, while losing Petty and not recruiting another established KPF. The fact that they (probably) called T Hawkins shows you how the club feels about their tall forward depth chart, and how life would look like without Petty.

Unless we get a proven 35-40 goal a year tall forward which is what Petty is highly likely to kick next year off a 20+ game season, then we'll hold Petty to his contract.

if the Crows want Petty they need to trade us (puts on flax jacket) Tex Walker! He looked awesome this year and looks like he has another couple of years left in him.

$1m is a huge offer. His footy career is short. gotta make the best of it while you can. And he has had a couple of injuries so durability an issue. If I'm Petty I'm taking that offer. Few people wouldn't

Why would we consider trading him when we're short on forwards and he has 2 years left on his contract. Next year at the earliest,

Also why does the AFL tolerate clubs trying to entice players to break contracts. Ramshackle organisation.

Agree, it's called (draft) tampering in the NBA massive fines. I loathe the AFL as an organisation just so compromised in every facet of the game

I heard it was only $1M year one and that over four years worked out to be more like $600K per year 

That news item said 'around $800k' a year after the first-year $1m...

    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
