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.

Date: Wednesday 29th November 2023

Time: 9:30am

Place: Gosch's Paddock

I've had confirmation from the club that training will take place on Wednesday and Friday and Gosch's Paddock at 9:30am. I'm going to try to make it down for at least one of those sessions. We'd love it if any Demonland Trackwatchers in attendance can provide us with any information and their observations.

I have to stay home with one of my kiddos tomorrow, tempted to go down for a gander but the weather looks iffy. Is there public parking at Gosch's?

There's usually parking along Alexandra Ave and a short walk over Morrell pedestrian Bridge straight to Goshes paddock

I’m on my way there, but if you wanna know more than just whose hair looks good, I’m not yer man. 😅

 

I hadn’t planned on going but a friend who loves the Dees but hates going anywhere on her own insisted we meet up there same as we did Monday. She just called me to bail. 🙄 Looks like I’ll have to annoy the coaches a little more than usual. 😜

Thanks Layz, but I had trouble telling *Jed and Petts apart the other day so my report mightn’t be worth reading  😭

* still not sure which one it was. I hope it was Petts because if it was Jed he might wonder why I called him Harry… and we’ve met before… several times  🤦‍♀️

Your red and blue face will turn purple in this rain WCW. Better wear a hat so they don't think you are a Freo spy trying to pinch another of our young guns. 😉

Ok but I ain’t no Pickett Fence.

So, they’re all out in the middle skipping. It’s pretty cute. They look like little kids.

Selwyn is working with Fritta who is running along the boundary about 20 metres then he stops, looks at his watch then runs again. Fritta stopped for a chat. He said his foot/leg is coming along well, and they’re happy with the progress 

Now they’re practicing short sharp kicks to each other.

Now they’ve split into two groups.

Meanwhile Fritta is running really well. He just told me he’s currently running at 40% I smiled and said that’s good but tbh I have nfi what that means.

The group up my end are doing running overlapping handball drills.

Ricky Lever is in this group. If he’s not our next captain there’s something terribly amiss.

A roll call of those present and those not present will suffice. Thank you for your service.

This weather kept me away today. Although Fridays forecast isn't looking much better.

He's always been my number 1 preference for our next captain by a long way.

Glad others are starting to realise what an incredibly influential leader he is.

Roll Call - apart from Clayton, ANB and Lachie Hunter were both there and training with the main group. Clayton just doing short runs with the physio. Fritta and Petty not involved with the group. Fritta doing stretches, Petty seems not ready yet. So 11 of the 44 not there, Chandler, May, Viney, Brayshaw, B Brown, Kosi, Langdon, Schache, Tomlinson, Melksham, Smith.

    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
