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.

Josh Kelly anyone?

Oliver wasn't expected to be a high pick either. GWS must have rated Curtin so high that they literally traded out to get away from him.

Windsor was best player available, If we went needs we would've gone a key forward or key back.

GWS would've taken Windsor after us. He was highly rated.

From the outside its impossible to tell who is a reach or not. 

A lot of people had Curtain as a top 5 pick, Leake as a top 10 pick, Darcy WIlson as a borderline top 10 pick.  No one had Gothard as low as 10.  Tholstrop similarly was considered in the mid teens.  

It looks like Windsor, Gothard and Tholstrop were higher up clubs' draft boards than expected. And not just by Melbourne - sounds like if we hadn't picked Windsor, GWS would have at 8, or somone in that 9-12 range.  Same with Tholstrop - was apparently in the mix at Essendon's pick and would have been taken by St Kilda after us.  Gothard too had interest from St Kilda, Sydney and GWS.

Is it just me or is there a hint of the great man himself R Flower.

Obviously, a big call but the way he handballs and moves reminds me of a young Robbie. We can only dream.

In his highlights the two left-handed handballs in traffic are almost exactly the way Robbie handballed - we can dream

We have gone totally for needs. We have some talls and Jefferson to add in time.

Windsor brings us a total outside running machine on the Lingers style up and back but is more highly skilled and will kick more goals.

Kolt is an X factor half forward and potential mid who will excite fans and annoy and embarrass the opposition. Total fan favourite with a swagger and style. Let the MCC members get out of their seats once this dynamo gets among the big boys on the G. 

Both are 185cm plus but seem taller in their highlights. Neither will take a backward step it looks like from their tapes either. 

Bring them on as excitement machines to end our mundane forward thrusts. 

Well done again JT.

Thought exactly the same thing. Both hold the ball well in front of them when handballing with their left. And both seem to glide across the ground.

Looks to have a nice turn of speed and smart delivery but I don't think he's got enough class to warrant being selected in the top 10. 

Depends what you call class and Caleb’s got it. Smooth running long kick goal scoring and great link man on the wing. 
I’ll back JT’s judgement against yours Danny any day or night at the G!

At the end of the day when you have someone like JT calling the shots you back him in with any 'reach' picks. 

Exactly Oliver and Jackson where reaches at the time. We have one of the best in the business leading a team following these kids from around 14 for 3 years . They know way more about them than any pundit on the radio or tv or forum

I would say every poster on here would back JT over any other poster. 
We can still all have opinions and be civil about it. No need to be shoot down other posters for the sake of it. 
By the way every form guide that was published during the season agreed with Danny.

So would I! He's a gun recruiter.

I just saw the new highlights package on melbournefc.com.au in which he looked stronger in the contest than the reel I saw prior on AFL.com.au.

I hope he really pushes our wings next year. I felt Hunter in particular was too comfortable in his role and lacked intensity in many games last year.

Its interesting not since maybe 2017 have we drafted proper inside mids. The last few years we have looked to improve our outside players with a bit more class. Rivers (2019). Bowey (2020), McVee (2021) Windsor (2023).

As its been stated often here, our midfielders lack consistency with their affective disposal by foot so adding these types and building them into the best 22 can only help.

As always, very excited by new recruits coming to the club.  Hope is one of the secrets to a happy life.

I'm not sure how likely it is that these new kids will be playing next year, I dare say they are more likely in the coming years when Langers & Hunter may not be on the wings anymore, or Tracc is spending more time up forward than in the middle.

After years of MFCSS, the one thing I have been cured of is distrust in the recruiters.  They have done a fantastic job the last 5+ years and the club seems to have the right culture for success.  I'm sure these kids can get the most out of themselves in the MFC environment and with the right approach.

Even though I was hoping for Curtin I am very happy with Caleb Windsor, has speed, endurance and great foot skills and will provide that outside class that we were crying out for this year. Really looking forward to seeing Caleb force his way into our best 23.!!

    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.
