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.


2024 List and Contract Details

Recommended Posts

 

The 2023 Table is updated for:

image.png.32fb827739162f2985c00e1babb94be6.png

  • Games played at start of 2024 season
  • New draftees
    • Caleb Windsor, a three year contract in line with new CBA
    • Koltyn Tholstrup a three year contract in line with the CBA
    • Kynan Brown as an A Rookie on a one year contract
  • Inclusions to be confirmed by the club:
    • Marty Hore as an A rookie (Supplementary List), assume a one year contract
    • Dan Turner on a two year contract
    • Andy Moniz-Wakefield rookie contract to be renewed

Therefore, there are no more list spots.  We have kept the 36/6/2 mix of senior/A rookie/ B rookie mix.

Potential milestones in the H & A season:

  • 50 games
    • Bowey
    • Chandler
  • 100 games
    • Rivers
    • Picket
    • Spargo
  • 200 games
    • Hunter
    • Petracca
    • Tomlinson
    • Viney

Key Senior Player signings for 2024 (imv):

Sparrow and Bowey are the major ones to sign up.  Langdon and Hunter will be re-signed.  Also Adams will likely get another contract as it is rare for recent draftees to not have at least one extension.   But a number of others may be encouraged to look elsewhere (eg Laurie, Schache, Smith and maybe Hunter) or retire (eg Brown, McDonald).

Other notes

I reckon Tholstrup will rapidly become a ‘cult hero’ especially among the young.  He has the swagger and the charisma to draw the crowds!!!  Looks like a fun loving kid.

For any contract changes from the club or posters during the off season I will update them all together in March.

Fritsch won’t be 31 at the end of his contract 

Thank you all and others for your for support, it is much appreciated.

In the Chart I've added the Dees 2024 draft picks and made the corrections suggested.

 

I welcome further corrections or new player contract info and I'll make the changes in March as after today, I am giving myself a holiday from D'land for the off-season.

Thanks LH greatly appreciated I assure you, just noticed McAdam think he will be 30 end of 2025. Have a great break and look forward to any changes in March.👍💕

We definitely have a premiership list. Just hope we have better luck with injuries and the players keep their heads screwed on tight.

Dees can beat any side in the comp.

We had a mangled VFL standard forward line in the 2023 finals yet lost by only 7 and 2 points to the eventual premiers and bluebaggers.

Sickening stuff.

Thanks Lucifer for all the work.  Don't know if its my system but all the previous pages appear to have disappeared.

Thanks stinga!

By previous pages I assume you mean the 2023 Contracts Thread?  To locate it go back to my first post of this thread.  At the bottom of that post is a link (in the form of an image) to the 2023 thread.  Just click on the image and it will take  you to the thread.

Just for you 😊I have updated McAdam before signing off!

He has a 3 year contract expiring in 2026 so I have changed his age to 31.

Totally agree Dannyz every player deserves their time in the sunshine and due recognition. Also supporters need to be informed, the club can’t assume that we are all as informed as us Demonlanders are or as my old boss used to say assume makes an [censored] of you and me.!!

This is my last demonland post. 

As we all know demonland can be wonderfully addictive!  But I've decide to reduce my use of on-line forums, social media and Apps. 

Can't tell you how much I've enjoyed my time on here over the years.  Thanks to everyone for your debate, support, laughs and banter, especially those I've got to know through messenger.

Wishing you all the very best.  Travel well, demonlanders.

To a 2024 Flag 🥂

Cheers,

Luci

 

Edit:  I've sent a copy of the Contracts Excel worksheet to Andy.  If anyone would like to volunteer to continue with it I'm sure he and demonlander's would apperciate it.  It is very easy to maintain; it is but a simple table.

Can’t you just take a break???? It doesn’t have to be forever. You KNOW you’ll miss us… eventually. And we’ll miss you - very much. 😢

edit: sorry M, that was spoilt brat me. Of course we should respect your decision to leave, as sad as that is. Thank you for your endlessly entertaining and informative posts. You’re one in a million. 💖

That is disappointing Luci as you have been a very good contributor to DL.

Hope you have a change of heart ,but in the meantime thanks for your posts and keep well.

    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.
