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.

Few moves happening.

Unfortunately we've lost George Grey who's been a solid contributor for the last number of years. He's off to Frankston.

Talented junior prospect who was incredibly unlucky to miss out in last year's AFL draft is joining Casey from Frankston. Was in the AFL Academy and played at Dandenong Stingrays as a big bodied midfielder.

Casey have also recruited ex St Kilda Leo Connelly who was delisted this year. 

Played 7 games at elite level all back in 2021.

Played all year in the VFL for Sandy and averaged 19 disposals playing as a half back/midfield.

Thanks @dazzledavey36 

Grey is a huge loss. Had an excellent 2022 in premiership year and even better 2023. He’s a smokey to get a rookie spot but might again miss out.  

I think Leo Connolly is an excellent addition.  Good pace and run through half back or on the wing.   

I don’t think Riak Andrew will get drafted or rookied but has real upside potential so would be good to continue his development in a system like Casey (whilst also getting some MFC development).

@Whispering_Jack  @KC from Casey

tell someone at Casey to get a pen and a contract 

Local boy who imv was very very unlucky not to get drafted.  His unavailability for the combine was a disappointment.  

Kade De La Rue
State: Victoria Country
State League Club: Dandenong Stingrays
Community Club: Beaconsfield
Date of Birth: 19/11/05
Height: 183cm

A medium midfielder/forward whose strength is accumulating the ball and then making good decisions with his neat disposal. Had an excellent season with the Dandenong Stingrays in the Coates Talent League where he averaged 20.5 disposals, 4.4 tackles and 2.8 clearances across 11 matches. Represented Victoria Country in all four of its matches at the National Championships including being among his team’s best with 22 disposals and five marks in the victory against Western Australia. Was unable to test at the Draft Combine due to injury.

Really nice kick of the footy, probably too plain for AFL but happy to have a close look at him at Casey to see if he can go to another level. I like the idea that he can play mid, wing or half back so he can be used to bolster the young demons rather than hog a role.

Does anyone actually care? As I have been saying for YEARS desolve this Basket Case of a competition and replace it with AFL reserves! George who ? Who cares? BRING BACK AN ALIGNED AFL RESERVES with no Frankston, Southport or anyone else non aligned to an AFL team!

@KC from Casey

surely Kobe is going to be in Casey list for 2024  

father-son connection and he’s shown great form this year

he deserves to keep his potential AFL dream alive 

20 metre sprint at state combine of 3.0 seconds as good as any with good burst through half back 

Kobe Shipp

Defender/Winger

187cm – 80kg

Played plenty of football as a bottom-aged player for Dandenong and made a name for himself on AFL Grand Final day last year with an intercept-marking masterclass in the under-17s all-stars clash.

Shipp is good one-on-one and distributes well out of the back half, but played on a wing throughout the national championships given Vic Country’s talent-laden halfback line. He has had excellent year for Dandenong and holds his width to get possessions in space.

AS REPORTED

 

VFL: top signing for North Melbourne VFL squad. The Kangas have locked in ex-Demon Deakyn Smith, who won the Casey Demons' best and fairest this year, polling votes in every round.

Deakyn deserves another go at Arden Street. Clarko, Todd and Co may sit up and take notice. Kids got talent!

If we’re putting in requests then I thought Tarkyn O’Leary was unlucky to not be drafted and would be worth a look as an outside runner.

As well as Sammy van Rooyen, who probably just stays at Claremont and goes through the grades but it would be nice to have him over here.

Agree totally,In an area, I deem weak on our list, being small backs,I feel we should have retained him.At least for another year.Best of luck Deakin, hope you make it.With regards Shipp andO’leaty both should be given a trading run with the hope of making our last pick via SPP.

In retrospect probably a victim of our increasingly gentrified or is it geriatricfried(?) list. Not naming names but there are a few gents nearing the superannuated end of their tethers. Trust Goody has the Tardis tuned up for a career defining retrospective.

Tarkyn O’Leary should be at Sandringham VFL in 2024. Outstanding runner. Elite skills. Excellent GF performance.  Very unlucky. He played 3 games for Sandy VFL team last year and impressed. Thoughts Saints were his option but they went Schoenmaker with final pickup.

I'd love Casey to sign delisted Gold Coast forward, Brodie McLaughlin. Still has something to offer an AFL list, in my opinion.

Yes I agree but Casey already is a logjam of tall forwards - Schache, Jefferson, BBB, Tmcd -plus alternative of Fullerton/Verrell. McLaughlin should go to Frankston as their number 1 forward.

As mentioned, would love to see Kade Delarue and Kobe Shipp join Casey. Both have plenty to offer aside from being locals. 

Have a feeling Shipp will be a late developer just like his father.

Great signing. Definitely hope he gets game time at Casey next year.  He has the run and skills to be an AFL player in the future 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

    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.
