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.

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.

He's got a good frame.
He'll be in there.

I hope that you are right picket, it appears that we have picked up a couple of A graders in The Duke and The Kolt. Caleb  has really stepped up big time and deserves an early call up. He really looks something special.

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.

Excellent signs are these not? I have some relaxing confidence in the team design across this year and further into the future with developing young players like these. Powerhouse stuff - now for the coaching team to maximise their ascension. That would be the only hesitancy one could hold, sadly.

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

Coll vs Melb 1968 Victoria Park

Great bit of footage, Macca. Thanks so much for putting it up on DL. Wonderful memories, Demon players, heritage thoughts invoked. Was there, that day - a game that I had forgotten, over the years. l think I got a smack over the head from a Filth fan during the last quarter, as fading memories recall.

If he's ready to go early, then that would be great, but I am happy waiting until the coaches decide that the time's right.
One thing that we have done particularly well over the last few years is blood the kids properly rather than have to rush them in as saviours before they're ready.
Having said that, from the limited vision I've seen, the kid reminds me of a young Lenny Hayes.

Yessss. One has to wonder though, with the likes of Parke and Hardeman up forward why we had such a long drought.

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!

Agree though Oliver and Pickett are hard to beat.

Duke is far better and goes so well with “Kolt”!

Kolt and Knot could be a bit too confusing …. and for many especially in the last decade or so when wearing a tie has become less common some may wonder what is the significance of Windsor and knot.

Agree Mono anyone under 50 wouldn’t identify Windsor knot for a tie, hell half of them wouldn’t know how to knot a tie. Lol.!!

Memory is fading but I know I was at Vic Park in '76 but probably a couple of times in the early 70's

It was great seeing Big Max Walker but he was up against a good player in Thommo

A number of Demon premiership players though and you could still see the Smith influence with the attack on the ball and the ability to get to the front position (Beckwith had taken over in '68)

As for the Duke (Windsor), he's got big wraps on him and we know how good Jason Taylor is in identifying talent.  Both he & the Kolt will debut early you'd imagine as there is often a flow-on effect when so many players are injured in one part of the ground (in our case, the forward line)

With Caleb, I like his first 2 or 3 steps and with the Kolt, it's his awareness and head over the ball

Both could be rippers!

He is also blessed with the gift of identifying said talent very quickly indeed.

I believe his nickname among the recruiting fraternity is Taylor Swift.

I reckon Jason Taylor has moved on from his Presidents of the United States (Adams, Jefferson, Jackson, Van Buren) meme and has moved on to cheese. Because not only is there a frightening looking Windsor Red, but guess what the Danish Tholstrup company is most famous for?

Pretty sure it was Colby we were trying to trade up the draft for, too.

EDIT: Can confirm the is such a thing as Brown cheese.

Would recommend reading Between the Flags, Mono. It makes for insiteful reading regarding our woes over that period.

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

What the &*$^ does that mean? An all time great of the club in an era when bashing blokes behind the play was de rigueur. I saw half the games Stan played and do not recall him jibbing it once. Stan was tough - don't worry about that. Single-handedly ensured Norf won the premiership in '77. And for 90 minutes, looked like becoming a premiership coach until his bestie bested him.

Windsor will debut round 0 BOOKMARK IT

Hopefully he is ready and picked on merit 

He will get his chance in the next couple of weeks to show what he can do against real opposition and not some glorified circle work at training - we all know there is a very big difference 

I’m bullish on Caleb and have likened him to the great Robbie in the way he runs, side steps, handballs and even kicks - is he ready to contribute meaningfully early this season I have no idea yet - if he can it will be a big bonus

Rods Dillon was another with a vice-like grip when it came to marking ... but not a great kick for goal

Parke kicked 63 goals in 1972 but his kicking action wasn't great.  But just like Dillon, he could take a great grab

Either would be more than handy right now!!

JVR reminds me of Hardeman a bit but Gary played his best footy as a CHB.  I reckon that JVR can be quite a versatile player so if he spends the year as a CHF, we might see that versatility in terms of him bringing other players into the game

    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.
