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.


Welcome to Demonland: Tom Fullarton

PSV have always had a great scouting network and being owned by Philips used to trade for some of the best young overseas talent with electrical equipment and white goods. When the original Ronaldo ended up in Eindhoven (aka The City of Light) a set of floodlights went the other way to Brazilian side Cruzeiro. 

Your tracksuit story is better though.  

Tony Cascarino was the man. to Gillingham in 1982. Back when the irish team was made up of any bloke with an irish granny

The Gills? I never knew he played for the Pikey Army. I figured it had to have been a transfer between two LOI teams. People wear tracksuits to weddings and funerals in that part of west Kent (the term chav relates to the town of Chatham right next door) so they would hold a bit of currency there.

Cascarino ended up having quite a good career although he didn't have any impact at Celtic. Probably as it was slap bang in the middle of our 9 in a Row years.

So question to anyone who knows

is this guy a better fit for us than 

Matt Flynn. Who chose Weagles

 

Flynn is an established ruck who would have been a good get but is more suited to the first ruck role

Fullarton hasn’t had as much exposure at AFL level but is more suited to the second ruck / ruck-forward role that we need 

So overall I’d say he’s a better fit and has a lot of scope for development

Well, that seems a little bit inconsistent with him requesting a trade to us. 

Give him 2 brutal Melbourne winters and we'll see.

I like your username.. Thats should be the official name not Sydney.

Tom Fullarton would help fill one of the glaring holes in our current list and he has nominated MFC as his destination club. No doubt JT and TL have been keeping an eye on him and have convinced him that we have a role for him at the Dee’s.!!

Useless question you ask !!

We don't have Flynn any way so move on. TF is a Far better prospect and can play CHF and/or FF far better, ruck adequately and is 5 years younger. 

Did WC know how good Josh Kennedy was before they had him traded in the Judd deal ? No and TF is in his prime at 23/24 years to blossom in the big time on the big stage as a forward/ruck graduate in the Gawn school of footy.

But seriously he has much more cred than Schache and starts with a blank canvas. He hasn't been harmed up forward at Brisbane under JoeD  and Hippy yet so he can freewheel into town with no scars and a big open mind to show what he's got for us in the big time. 

I am genuinely pleased and well a bit excited at the prospect of a 200cm forward joining our ranks at the prime time of a career for a big KP/ ruck player perhaps for a second/third round ( possibly No 39 for JJ).

What's the story about candy and babies? Who cares he's our baby now for Chocco to finish off his apprenticeship and provide some candy that's far better than a Shacky out of ol' Brisbane town. 

Let the Olympic ( I mean AFL) games begin in 2024 and hopefully go thru to 2032 for TF.  Well he won't outlast Dan's career but surely Anastasia's by a decent way!

PS we have a new Tommy in town to replace our old and worn out Tmac tractor and BBB machine with a bit of ruck craft to boot. 

Cheers Dees!! ( Hope these words don't raise false hopes ) Oh and TF please don't let me down!
No pressure!!

Judging on those highlights posted earlier in this thread he is exactly what we need. Hope he can translate those talents from VFL to AFL and with a full Demons pre-season ahead at age 23/24 (or whatever) he could be a huge acquisition with massive upside.

Or not, who knows! It’s up to the Dees to bring it out of him

I think he will be a complete miss.Plays with even less aggression than Schache and lacks his forward nous . His only significant asset is his height , Would have most likely been  delisted by Brisbane .A future fourth round at best.

Based on some brisbane forum posts, they are not upset to lose this guy. He is a 'tall who plays small' type, gets goals out the front of the pack instead of clutching big marks.

wow - sounds like one that we can all get very excited about in 2024 😲

I for one think you might be being a touch harsh - but if he does join us let's all get behind him and hope he surprises you

Fullerton is a free hit imv. He should be cheap $ and has some ability to relieve Gawn when needed. I think we give up a future 3rd round (or 4th) to the Lions who  want points next year to pickup Levi Ashcroft.  

From the words of the great man himself 

“Cal Twomey expects a future-third round selection to be enough to satisfy Brisbane in the Tom Fullarton deal”

Unless both Tomo and Brown are retiring, the Schache 1 year extension looks necessary. Better option than an NQR like Shaq, Chol or Lobb as this guy still has a chance of turning the corner at 24. 

Asking for a friend - how old was Max in his breakout game at KP??  I would have thought 24 +/- 1

Pretty much.  I'd put it at that 2015 Vs Geelong at Kadinia Park win, where he dominated that he really started to stamp himself on the comp, which probably didn't really consistently get going until the following years 2016 / 2017 so that puts him precisely 23 - 25

Agree that it's probably a good age range to recruit a ready made ruck that still has some years ahead of them.  Probably also allows our 19/20yo developing rucks some time to develop their bodies and as players without being thrown in out of their depth.

Yep that's the one, round 12. 19 disposals, 44 hitouts, 1 goal 1 behind

    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

    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.
