  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    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 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.

According to Cal T. :

”Unless Roos come with a last huge offer, Eagles set to hold at 1. Could dangle a future first if Dan Curtin is still on the board”.

Wonder if he is talking about the Dees.

WC could offer their F1 progressively to Hawthorn, the Dogs, MFC, GWS, Geelong until Curtin is taken. It will become progressively more attractive.

The stupidest justification for selecting a player, yet it just keeps popping up...

It is not the justification, as no one would take a dud in the hope you could swap him.

Curtin was suggested to be as good as  Reid by some pundits.

It’s more an insurance bonus if homesickness leads him to want to return to WA.

If he is available at our pick I would think we probably take him and swapping him later with Reid would not enter into the drafting discussion.

The Eagles will offer it for every spot that Curtin is available, but I’m not convinced we take it. Especially not straight up.

That said, if there’s no one left that we rate in the elite crop we have a choice to make between:

1. Moving back the prized part of the Jackson trade back one year further 

2. Taking Curtin who seems to be increasing his flight risk level to a fairly high level, which means he could be gone inside 3 years. Could all be rubbish, but the player manager played his cards strongly. 

Im always of the belief you draft interstate talent unless you think it’s inevitable. Curtin could be flirting with it. Only those with inside knowledge would know.

I’m hoping JT and Co have someone else in the top bracket they want instead and take the pick.

Curtin’s manager said he has talked to the Dees, and that they said they would take him at 6, if he’s still there.

Skip ahead to about 10.30 in.

That's potentially pick 1 and 2 in next year's draft. You'd have to look at it

WC 2024 first rounder is 95% to be either pick 1 or 2. most likely 1.

Suns, Freo, Hawks, bombers will all improve

You may well turn out to be right. The wildcard is what Free Agency compo picks get dealt out by AFL House.

    THAT WAS THE YEAR THAT WAS: 2023

    When the dust settled on 2023, the Melbourne Football Club coach Simon Goodwin lamented that the club knew it needed to score more to land a second premiership in the current era. He opined that an average of one more goal per game would have had his charges in football’s stratosphere.  Goodwin was right and, based on his team’s scoring opportunities, that extra goal (and more) was well within its grasp if only they had better converted their shots at goal. Take the side’s last six defeats
