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.

Surely we get a first round pick from the Bombers with some picks back 

it’s perhaps something like 

Bombers get Gay and pick GCS 35 and 53

MFC get pick EFC 13 and Lily Johnson 

GCS get Charlotte Wilson and pick MFC 56 

Port get MFC pick 74 

like MFC to have 5,13,19&26 👏👏👏

So effectively we started with:

R1 (16), R2 (35), R3 (56), R4 (74), Birch, Gay, Sherriff, West, Wilson

and ended up at:

R1 (5), R2 (12), R2 (23), R2 (40), R4 (74), Johnson

 

Six spots left on the list as it stands, so presumably we'll pick up a DFA or two (or three if we pass in 74)... or some left-field cross coder. Thankful at least that we didn't lose a single player on my "keep at all costs" list but not sure that we've been adequately compensated for the outgoings. AFL will be happy to have finally weakened us in this regard; even still, I reckon they'd have wanted a few more big names out.

We also farewelled Ivy, Johnson and Fowler.

So I'm seeing that as 8 players out, 1 in for 7 list spots (assuming everyone else re-signs).

We've got 4 top 40 draft picks and pick 74.

Are we looking at adding a couple of delisted free agents?

Mick Stinnear mentioned at the fan forum the other night that we have a rookie spot that we will look to Ireland to fill.

70% of applicants for the draft have nominated nationally. So it's definitely heading more towards being a true national draft, which is exciting.

Yes this is interesting.  I would assume that the highly rated girls who know they are going to be drafted would be in a position to nominate the state in which they want to play, knowing they will be selected.  But for the girls who aren't so confident of being picked up going national definitely improves their chances.  For example the Eagles and Dockers only have seven picks between them, so if you nominate WA you'd need to be in at least the top seven selections for the entire state or you're going to miss out.  There is always the Supplemental Selection Period after the draft, but I'm sure they don't want to be left hanging and hoping.

Awesome, obviously we've had a fairly good success rate and have only become more knowledgeable in spotting players whose skills translate not just to footy but our game plan. Also would have a good reputation in terms of attracting and keeping quality players.

Assuming we get an Irish rookie, that would leave one spot if we use all our picks, so at least one. Wouldn't be surprised it we pass in our last pick if there's another DFA who suits our needs.

Noticed that Hannah Bowey (sister of Jake) was de-listed by North. Not sure of her playing ability and we probably shouldn't be signing players purely on genetics!

Also Sophie Casey de-listed by the Pies - another one in the experience, know what you get category, though on the older side.

Looks like Mikayla Williamson is a potential draftee.. AFL website write up

Position: Midfielder
Height: 174cm
State: Victoria, Dandenong Stingray/Pines
Nomination: Victoria

One of the very top athletes in the draft, Williamson set a new Combine record for the 2km time trial, taking five seconds off Nina Morrison and Tarni Evans' long-standing time of 7:14. She finished second in the agility test and fourth in the standing vertical jump. Wins the footy and can clear congestion with ease.

Dees will be boosted by the addition of Jemma Rigoni.  She’s got real pace and plays like a youngster who’s grown up with footy skills built up over many years.  
AFL website write up… 

Position: Winger
Height: 172cm
State: Victoria, Oakleigh Chargers/Ashburton
Nomination: Victoria

Slightly older at 19, Rigoni missed out on her draft year after suffering a torn ACL in 2021. She's returned to both under-18 and VFLW level (with Casey Demons) in fine style, providing plenty of pace and neat kicking skills on the wing. Can also play off the flanks if needed.

    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.
