Posting Unsubstantiated Rumours on this Website is Strictly Forbidden
  • 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.

Eliza Reilly has reported we are showing interest in Roxy Roux from Fremantle. 

Interesting. Aside from having the best name in footy, probably hasn't reached the heights expected at Freo. I seem to recall there being rumours that she wanted out last season as well. EDIT: Just been traded to West Coast.

The truth comes out! Haha, just kidding. I suspect the DA may not be alone on this. It probably won't surprise anyone that Libby did not make my "top 10 players to please, please let us keep" list. There's always a bit of regret to see a premiership player go though, and no one would deny she had a her part in that flag, as did West and Sherriff.

Without knowing what the draft pool is like I reckon Pick 5 and 26 for sheriff and west is more than fair. Good business I reckon.

pick 19 for birch seems unders for an AA defender but she did have a poor season so maybe not.

Appreciate people's thoughts on if we've done well or not in what we've received. It's not something I have a good gauge on at all.

We gave the Hawks 16 in the deal roo

The big question is which of the top draft picks stay in the Vic only pool.

No doubt the afl will try to convince someone to go to GWS.

But if we effectively get the 2nd best Victorian that would be a great result.

I suspect we’ll ask North for 19 and 38 at a minimum.

Unlike last year’s… that was nothing but fun!

 

She's one player from afar that I don't warm to...but know nothing of her really.

Actually, same here. I’ve spoken to her a few times and she’s not nearly as friendly as the other girls. Also, I’ve never liked how invested she is in her media career, seems like it takes priority over her playing career. I kinda wasn’t surprised to hear she wants to leave us.

Media career? Jeepers.

Can barely string two words together and a voice like fingernails down a blackboard. 
 

Anyway….good luck to her.

Yeah at one of our BBQs at Gosch’s this year she was on the mic with Robbo. It didn’t help that our tent was close to a bank of speakers but holy cr4pp, she was insufferable. We literally couldn’t hear a thing other than her unlistenable voice. Robbo was just as loud but at least he was kind to our ears.

Libby was a star in season 7 and in the premiership.  She didn’t have the greatest season just gone but was serviceable imv.  One of our leaders and I think could be excused for a down year.  Would be sad to see her go.  Others also weren’t at their best this year by the way. It’s not all on Libby that the Dees fell away in straight sets.

We had to include a pick to get a first for Birch, yikes 

She must be on a salary that no longer befits her standing on the team - why else would you have to give back a draft pick for a 26 year old 2 x All Australian, 2 x premiership player?

Disappointing trade outcome however it is probably fair value given Birch’s best is behind her. If Wilson gets to the Suns, who is next in line for the 2nd tall? 

Colvin’s a good player but she’s old and injury prone.

Personally I’d try Bannan and see if she can develop as a player down back, and if that doesn’t work I’d go with Tay Harris.
 

We have forward options including using Loz Pearce forward and Campbell in the ruck.

Umm, we got  a first round pick for her, that's not too disappointing.

I'm loath to say it, but her goal kicking has probably proven to be not up to it.

    SCRUTINY & RESILIENCE by Whispering Jack

    If the week when preseason training melds into scratch matches with other clubs, is the first marker for the beginning of a new season, then this has certainly been a torrid opener for the Melbourne Football Club in its campaign to remain a leading AFL premiership contender in 2024. The Demons were already under enormous scrutiny from the media and football’s fan base (including their own) after consecutive straight-sets finals exits, with Clayton Oliver’s well documented woes, the Joel Smi
