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.

The club tried the key position premiership defender out twice as a forward only to be thwarted by injuries. His six goals against the Tigers signaled a promising career there if he can recover and stay on the ground in 2024.

HP is a great quandary to have, he has shown that he is an excellent backman and now also has the makings of a VG forward. We are all hoping that Harrison can get out on the park more Consistently in ‘24 and help hold the forward line together for us. Good luck HP.

Harrison will play a vital role in premiership calculations.  

If fully fit he has so much to offer as a forward - strong marking, leading, kicking set shots, yet also a serious option as a (Premiership) defender if needed.

Great hands and can kick straight. Not a bad defender either!

Injury profile a big concern. He misses a lot of games. A fit and firing Petty will be a huge boost to our chances.

The elephant in the room is the crows. they'll come after him again next trade period. And I reckon he'll go.

He also spend long minutes on the bench lots of games getting assessed.

Agree he will most likely go end next season hence we need to get, and keep him fit this coming season and it will certainly put us in line for another flag.

Gone...

Preparing myself for the Jackson like platitudes.... "We can only get what they are prepared to give etc"

At the very least by staying he's stuffed up the long term salary cap planning. Bit like TMac when he went forward and we had to give him a big salary hike.

With TMac, BBB and Thommo off contract at the end of this year, the club has plenty of money to throw elsewhere. If Petts comes back with a bang, the club will offer up a good amount of money. I think I heard someone within the club saying they will be spending more time and effort in keeping Petts more connected with his family in 2024.

Harry is already a super defender, and he looks capable of becoming a very good forward as well. That is potentially a great problem for the club to have if (a) he can get his body right and (b) he is prepared to sign a long term contract to stay here.

Seems to me Petty was a bit inconsistent with his slight frame injured and he got pushed around  bit when originally in defence.

He became a bit stronger and was just developing as a solid addition to the defence, then moved to forward as an almost emergency option.

He flourished and added some accuracy to the forward line and was a great fixture when our options were limited.

He is now a very valuable component of any team, of course this does make him more attractive to Adelaide. They seem prepared to pay a premium for him.

I would be saying to him this season is significant for him but more importantly the club and the team. We dont want to lose him and see him as a valuable long term Demon premiership player. But his value will be determined by his performance. If we win the flag this year and he contributes to that he will be even more attractive to Adelaide and will be able to command a healthy salary. We would then consider if we continue our progress to further flags with or without him. His ($$) value would be at maximum.

If he plays poorly and doesnt contribute his value ($$$) would decrease and we would likely retain him to realise his full potential.

I see his season as a great portent of the teams season. This discussion should be held privately and then transparently to his teammates, who would be given a similar message, Value is based on success, you will be given every opportunity for success at this club.

Other clubs (Adelaide) will know that we value our players and they will have to make premium offers to entice them away from us.

To be fair, Loges didn’t immediately answer himself, a whole two minutes elapsed. @forever demons on the other hand… a textbook sermocinator if ever I saw one. 🙃

I sat in the Ponsford and saw close up most of his bag against Richmond this season. That convinced me that this guy is one of the answers to our forward problems. He made the Tiger backline look inept with his reading of the ball coming in and his ability to lose his designated defender and run at the ball, mark it with clean hands and then actually convert!

If he can stay fit he could be one of the best KPF in the game, hopefully for us.

I wonder if we requested Adel + Port in consecutive weeks for gather round, for that reason. To get our turn out of the way early and still gain something from it: A happier Harrison. It would give him plenty of time with family in that 3 week or so bookended period while the club potentially stays in Adelaide during games.

Dunno. You’re the textbook spermocinator… you should know 😉 

Now I’m picturing Arnie menacingly strolling through the city streets brandishing a giant sex toy in each hand…

    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.
