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 am fairly confident he will too.

All of ANB, Chandler, Kozzie, Spargo, Sparrow, Billings and McAdam will want to have very, very good preseasons.

Our forward half will be very dynamic if everyone is up and running

 

Totally agree, the competition for those spots will be immense.

Also thanks for playing along with my nickname project of 'Dirk', even if you didn't mean to. I'll be doing everything possible to make this one stick.

I’m sure this comparison has been made already but Sestan and Tholstrup are, on paper, remarkably similar 

Mid sized forward

X factor

Size (188cm V 186cm)

Powerful frame

Great kick/High footy IQ

Mullet

This dynamic duo could be a whole lot of fun for us to watch

Point being?

His pressure acts, 1%ers, effort, gut running, etc. border on elite, but you’re mad if you think he shows composure with the footy in hand. If he could consistently execute under pressure he’d be AA.

Point being?

His coaches, full time professionals working at the elite level, judged him to be our 6th best player.

He finished 9th in the bluey in 2022 and 6th this season. Back to back top 10s in the b&f of an AFL club that finished top 4 is an objective measure of excellence.

It's plain silly to think he finished 6th only because of his pressure acts, 1%ers, effort and gut running. 

I mean c'mon, it's elite level sport, not the local footy club handing out votes to the bloke who is a real trier and always does the barbie.

And without being facetious, the assessment of an AFL coaching staff holds more water than the vibe based assessment of random footy forum posters.

Mad if I think he shows composure with footy in hand?

Did you miss the part when I said he was our best kick inside 50 in terms of kick to score ratio?

Sure that probably says something about his teammates, but nonetheless hard to top that stat without showing composure with ball in hand.

I think Sestan is one of the most talented players we have. he also gets the ball the least unfortunately. hopefully his second year is the year for him.

Watch the Taylor interviews. He's a HFF now likely to become a mid. That's what they're projecting for him. 

 I would like another forward who can play mid, rather than mids playing half forward like we do.

When I first looked at Koltyn with the sunnies and hair I immediately thought of a young Brett Lovett, Brett was a lot shorter but he had that look about him. Koltyn has that look about him (eir of confidence) that will make people take him seriously. Lucky us.!!!

100% Agree.

Bailey from the Lions is the perfect example of the sort of player and role that the Colt could fill for us.

High half forward who can get up and down the ground, hits targets, wins his own ball, can kick goals and when required can also go into the middle. 

The alternative is players like Sparrow and Jordon who can play as pure mids when required (eg to give our starting mids a chop out) but don't look natural forwards when resting at half forward flank.

On the upside, Koltyn appears to be twice as fast as Brett, perhaps a better kick finding targets and just that little bit more likely to mark, not spoil and play on into the path of the ball; if he turns out to be half-three quarters as good he's going to be a champion. Welcome to the Club of clubs, young man.

He [Sestan] came from nowhere, has had one preseason at AFL level.

Really looking forward to seeing him develop after a year on our list and two preseasons.

This is a fallacy that keeps getting trotted out by many supporters. We have not finished in the top 4 this year or last. 2021, 22, 23 = 1st, 5th & 6th respectively.

    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.
