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.

Love bowser. Agree that it would be nice to see him perhaps rotate through a wing. Could use his skills delivering inside 50.

Should reach out to Banana Boat to see if their interested in a sponsorship deal, I'm sure clarry and bowser would appreciate it.

@Demonstone taking a nap?

Can't believe nascent typed that, what a dumbass

Good news. No regular players want to leave MFC only fringe players pack up their gear and seek greener pastures.

Maybe time to move Bowie up the ground because most slots down back are filled.

No harm in plonking him in  the forwardline during practice matches  if he shows something during the preseason in January.

Lucky break another two years. Needs to become more consistent, similar to Quanor at Collingwood.we need him to become the stopper of opposition top small forward continually.

we need him to excel onwards.

Doesn't have anything close to Quaynors athletic profile. 

I like what Bowser brings but his 1v1 losses in the d50 have been very costly and he is our weak link down back in that regard. 

I think he'd be a very handy half forward with his skills and nous around goal.

Well he's not a patch on IQ. Has quietly become just about the best mid sized defender in the comp 

You have totally contradicted yourself, Rivers is better with more upside with probably 20 others better than Bowey in the comp….but hopefully he’ll get there but be realistic, our friend.

Bowey is nowhere near Quaynor at the moment. 
 

IQ is good at defending, good at releasing players further up field, and good at setting up and getting on chain connections. Plus Quaynor’s physical pressure is vastly superior.

Think he is talking about Isaac Quaynor being the best mid sized defender, not Jake.

Still can't believe this legends start to AFL - seriously is it the best story of any AFL player ?

Marlion Pickett debut in the AFL grand final is for me considering his challenges in the past being in jail etc.

Really admire Quaynor as a player. Quickly establishing himself as one of the best lock down small defenders in the game.

His physical strength for such a young player is very impressive.

Won some crucial contests in the grand finald and throughout the finals series.

    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
