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.

I have been looking for a winger for the Dees, for years. Still looking and the points raised certainly form part of my dream wingman, alongside enormous poise and gutsy intercepts. I hope we have found someone close to the skills and playing style of the very great Stan Alves, just a bit taller. 

Hugely under-rated is Stan. He probably is under recognised by Demon fans because of the bitter manner of his departure but he was absolutely outstanding. The sight of his dashes along the northern wing was all that kept me going to the G during the early 70s.

The bloke on the southern wing wasn't bad either. 🌷

A number of years as loyal servant of MFC

excellent player.  Perhaps not as good as his opposite winger, but a delight to watch.

only left to get a chance at a premiership if I remember correctly.  Was Stan O’s from cheer squad favourite player so we all knew how good Alves was. Played with us for 10 (?) Only played another couple of years. So deserved to go.

was there a problem within the club and him, he never seems overtly positive towards the Dee’s. Or is that just my perception.  It’s gunna be a good year again.     Go Dee’s

Too right, but I reckon they only had maybe two seasons in the same side before Stan went off to win his flag with the Kangas who did very well out of rule changes around that time. It's funny how well served we were for wingers but not so much in key positions.

Back to Caleb Windsor, I know that it’s only hilights of an intra club hit out but, he looks very exciting. He appears to be exactly what we have been lacking for a long time. An outside, quick, pure skilled link player who can also hit the scoreboard.

I am as excited as I have been about a draftee for a long time!

Could be what they call a 100 metre player. Gets it and goes. With long, accurate kicks.

The speed is tantalising.

My golden days of going to the football. Lots of Grand Old Flag passion in the southern stand. No voice-over ground announcers. The Dees often played with desperation, just didn't have access to the top-flight players. The late 70s, by which time Wells had gone to Carrrton, that was a different matter.

My earliest melbourne memories are of Alves and Wells.

The 1st jumper I wore had #15, the 2nd was 11.

And Stan Alves was my very 1st autograph.

I was so nervous.

The kid is obviously going to play early. 

Need to know one thing.... what we calling him

'KNOT' 

Or

'DUKE'

Personally I think Duke. It's been a while since the Earl of Spalding. This name needs renewing

I thought Stanley was absolutely superb on the Southern Wing, as well. That raking long torp and the more steadied drop punt (closer in) scored us an enormous number of goals for a dedicated wingman. He still leaves me with the sense of absolute awe of his blind turns, dodges and run-arounds on every opposition player attempting to prevent his ball delivery or forward line penetration, let alone his accuracy with 'outside' goal-kicking. His accelerating speed could not be contested effectively, even by the alleged 'greats' assigned to stop him across many years. Definitely, Stan remains very close to the top of my list of outstanding Demons over the years, in the masterclass of the gifted clutch in red & blue.

Definitely a memory of Stan 

ran at his opponent threw the ball to his right, then spun clockwise around them and he was gone 5 or 6 metres clear

looking to pass the ball forwards

I'd rather name him after a piece of clothing than a Nazi sympathiser.

Most exciting first year player, according to training vision, since Clayton. 

 

Blake Howes is another who looks good. Throw in JVR, Judd and potentially Kolt and we have a gun baby Demon group coming through. Anything can happen.

Stan wasn’t the bravest player to pull on a Dees jumper.

That's unlike you to talk like that, Jack

It takes a good level of courage just to cross the white line

Stan features quite a bit in the clip below playing as first rover

And if Caleb ends up as good as Stan, we've got quite the player.  Stan won 2 B&F's and ran 2nd in the Brownlow on one occasion

And captained the club for 4 years.  He was quite a decorated footballer

Windsor's speed, balance and coordination makes you think we have something special here. He moves like Josh Kelly, Whitfield and Rozee. Hopefully he can get strong enough to play inside the centre square one day.

    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.
