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

Lol his disposals numbers and the amount of goals kicked at VFL level is identical to Josh Schache's year in his 2022 VFL season.

Having watched enough VFL of Brisbane this year and some of his previous AFL games it's no wonder Brisbane fans are happy to show pack his bags for him.

 

How about you put your personal gripes with Deespencer on hold for a while and stop using Tom as collateral damage in your petty feud.  We get you don’t like Tom as a player, for most of us you only need to say it once.

Welcome Tom, as a Demon you have our support (other than a few posters who don’t understand the concept of support) and best wishes and I wish you great success while you are with us.

I'll confess that I haven't seen much of Fullarton, but criticism of his selection is premature. 

Grundy and Jackson combined for 21 goals in 39 games over the past 2 years as ruck/forwards for us. That's pathetic.

We know that Max is at his best when he spends a majority of his playing time in the ruck. If Fullarton can pinch hit in the ruck and contribute 15-20 goals as a forward, then it's a win for us. And I'm sure JVR's goal output will improve without the ruck duties.

I can't see anything negative with this trade. If it doesn't work, we are no worse off.

Jesus.. you're dead set the king of taking things out of context in this joint.

Reading that he’s a tall forward who was a basketball guard instantly reminds me of jack watts. Does anyone know what his range is like? Can he hit shots from beyond the arc? 
 

Very happy with the addition. Fits the list profile well. Hope he grows into his niche and amasses a good career at the dees. 
 

As an aside, if Tom does present well enough, does JVR go higher up the ground in ‘24 and beyond? I like him closer to goal and pack marking/splitting but maybe having that presence will improve our forward connection.

Welcome aboard Tom.  He’s got the profile that the Dees need as a forward with ability to pinch hit for 6-7 minutes in the ruck (Gawn relief).
Kind of a free hit for a pick we weren’t going to use, though  I thought Lions would like a future 3rd round to help with points for Levi Ashcroft next year.

Tom is 97kg, so about the same weight as LJ, hopefully TMac will get him onto some great steaks in the pre-season and get him up to 100kg’s.

A very warm welcome, Tom Fullarton, to MFC ☺️

With summer just around the corner, I’m sure you’ll feel right at home here. I’m aware of your impressive basketball background, and I can’t wait to see you in action for the Dees on the footy field. As a talented young man, I have no doubt you have a bright future ahead of you!

Relative information:

Tom Fullarton   24yo, 2.00m tall, 92 kg. A shooting guard. He was the captain of the Australia 2016 under-17 basketball world cup squad.

Luke Jeckson   22yo, 2.00m tall, 100 kg. A center or a power forward. He was a member of the Australia 2018 under-17 basketball world cup squad.

Christian Petracca   27yo, 1.86m tall, 96 kg. A small forward(?). He was a member of the Australia 2012 under-17 basketball world cup squad.

 

So, when whoever  that guy is from Collingwood retires, BT will be able to find another to say every few minutes "and he has a basketball background"

TMcD and BBB can open an omnivore restaurant together - may need seperate kitchens though.

We shall soon find out d3165, however you would expect that an athlete who has played in a high performance environment would have a fair degree of grit, determination and will to win that other ingredient isn’t evenly shared around but hopefully he has some in him.!!

Schache Fullarton Tmac and Brown.

Looks like a pretty awesome and tall Casey fwd line in 2024.

Do you seriously consider all 4 would ever be on the park at the same time? there will always be one or two with mummy like strapping riding bikes on the boundary at training.

1A, 1F, 2Ls, 1M, 1N, 2Os, 1R, 2Ts and a U, but no C.

And even if he deed-polls 'James' into his apparently vacant middle name spot (see above), still none.

As a 2-metre midget, he played guard, I believe. That's a position needing a bit of the third letter?

p.s. Welcome, Tom!

I agree that we should pursue someone like Hayes or Lycett. I doubt that the club sees Fullarton as a successor to Max. hence the 2 year deal.

Maybe 2 and not 1 or 3 will let us asses his true value.  
Would love it if dazzle and other naysayers had egg on their faces. 
He is one of our now - support him.

    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.
