  • 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.


Welcome to Demonland Koltyn Tholstrup

Rookie central profile has him at 186cm, 86kgs and above average for endurance. That sounds pretty good for a draftee?

He is closer to 189cm atm apparently, with a lift in his tank, through 2-3 pre-season's worth of work, he could genuinely be ANYTHING! But before then, he will be a pressure fwd that can finish, yes pls!!!

I get the Windsor pick but this one has me scratching my head 

Not sure with the existing small forwards and the addition of those two above this was a pressing need

Maybe they think he can evolve into a midfielder 

100% what we are thinking. PLUS, you really can't have too many pressure fwds these days, will put pressure on Chandler/Spargo pretty quickly i'd rkn.

Ran 6.17 for the 2km time trial which was 10th at the Draft Combine. I think he’s actually a decent runner.

Got an opinion from a mate involved with West Perth coaching dept. Said he's a very good player and compares him to Daniel Rich.

Watching his highlights he seems to kick the ball like Rich, low hard with real power in the kick.

Hopefully both will turn out champions but I thought we needed a few ahead.Curtin for one could have become a tall back.I also think a young ruck was  the go.Will Green would have suited us nicely as well.

The same thing was said about Grundy. Every list spot is valuable, and we already have a bunch of experienced players who'll struggle to be best 22.

Billings hasn't played well for 2 years. What makes you think he'll return to his best?

What makes you think he won't?

Strangely he's a Saints supporter?! His friend Lance Collard was drafted to the Saints, so he'll have someone he knows well moving over to Victoria also.

One side of his family is diehard Saints, the other side is diehard Dees but he’s the black (and white) sheep of the family; he’s mad Collingwood.

edit: sorry, wrong person. I was thinking this was Caleb’s thread.

Thanks Nudge that is even better, 189cm is a good height for a hard nut forward/mid with a bit of X factor about him.🔥

Koltyn reminds me of the great Allen Jakovich. Full of confidence, plays a tough brand, quick decision making, kicks goals.

Allen is shorter at 187cm. Koltyn needs another 15 kgs.

I agree he could be anything after a couple of pre-seasons

This is critical.

Says two things - one he is a natural athlete. And two he must be a hard worker.

I suspect nibbla's 2km draft trial was similarly impressive and i'm guessing the role they have in mind for Koltyn is, like Nibla, the high half forward role.

As i have banged on about that role has become critical in footy and was a clear need we had to fill (ie another elite high half forward to compliment Nibbla).  

Appears to have good foot skills too, which is important

Nibbla has really improved his field kicking and was our best kick inside 50 last season (as defined by kick to score ratio - our three worst were Tracc, Oliver and Gawn).

Having a player on both flanks who can hit a target inside 50 will be a big positive. 

Good get.
