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.


TRAINING GALLERY: Thursday 11th January 2024

Six and his Camera travelled down the highway in the hope that it might be open session. Alas not, until the back gate was opened for Gawny, Gus and a few others to head over to one of the other ovals for some special training. I took the opportunity to meander on in for a closer look but was swiftly told to stop taking pictures, go figure. So, I headed back out behind the fence a took a few more.

  • Six6Six changed the title to Today's Training Gallery 11/1/24 @ Casey, Go Away

Six another ripper production. This time with an infectious and (very apt) south of the border dance beat. Fortunately Fidel is passé, as a basement ‘debrief’ at Casey is not an enticing prospect.

Thanks Six that is brilliant footage and I also enjoyed the upbeat background music. I am going to have to brush up on the player numbers as we have a lot of changes. Petty is way ahead of my expectations.

The lack of a welcoming environment re enticing supporters down to watch training at Casey is both mesmerising and a total disgrace! I am growing tired of venturing down there, ( and navigating slithera city) trying to see behind the fence and the mesmerising  view of players wearing wrong numbers almost does my head in!. A Closed training session FFS. I pride myself on accurate reports with banter and candour and dialogue to boot. WHAT IS THE CLUB TRYING TO PROTECT?? Top secret training form and rocket science that no other club is aware of of our style of play?? Crikey give me a break! Every club knows how we play, this lack of support for us hard core supporters that venture out to support and watch training pionts to a ........ Culture problem of cold war significance. OH I FORGOT WE DONT HAVE A CULTURE PROBLEM🤯

Devils advocate. This is the time of the year to practice new game plans and tactics.

We obviously don't want to share that in the wrong hands early and it would be pretty easy for an opposition club to have someone wear a dees cap on the premise of taking photos yet they could get heaps of cracking vid of plans,  payers, training techniques etc Heaps of stuff.

Or is your will to share more important? Just saying.

Fantastic shots 66 cant believe the club cant provide better cover. They should just let you in and use selected shots.

You do display the different muscle definition of the younger players which is great but may be valuable to opposition if they get on the field. Its been an issue with me for years that we seem slightly built but i am delighted that we have so many solidly built players. In saying that Lever has and still seems to show little muscle depth and yet he I enjoy every shot you have of him .

Read an interesting article in the age about how ballet dancing has improved physical performance. It aint all about muscles  and strength but how you use what you've got.

Super job by six.  Poor effort by the club.  Thx to those who venture out.  I was going to do a tour on Monday, but it is no longer at Gosch’s.

A thought= maybe we will see a shift to more elite ball users to get out contested + transition concept going.  Would mean the likes of Laurie, Sestan, McAdam etc will be more prized.  With Clarry on a break it opens the path for sparrow and Gus in the guts.

Also, BBB, TMAc and Tommo almost look like new recruits!  Certainly moving better than last year!

I suppose the Premiers inevitably get copied when it comes to tactics and players. Who's the Nick Daicos lookalike?

It is Noah Yze. He has been traing with the club this preseason.

The only reason the club lets us see training at Goschs is because they have no choice. The AfL clubs that can look fans out do 90% of the time. They allow fans in for promotional events. Try getting into training at Geelong. Get used to it because come Caufield it will be lock out.

I wouldn't hold your breath re Caulfield. It's Casey or the paddock for the foreseeable future and Caulfield is supposed to be public space so cant see a big fence being part of the deal. Collingwood has no way of locking out supporters and with their attitude towards their fans I'm not sure the would.

Love seeing Gus without the fluro vest!!!

There should be no pressure or expectations on Gus after what happened last year. But if he can manage to get his mind and body right he might just be the most important piece for us as full-time midfielder this year.

I know this is a discussion that will be had on this forum in future weeks and months, but I really liked Gus' impact through the period Clayton was out last year. It was a small sample size but I thought the change in dynamic in the midfield was refreshing and gave us a different look with more versatility. In no way am I saying our midfield will be better without Clayton (potentially) but provides different opportunities and dynamics to be really effective IMO.

I have met many VFL/AFL coaches over the years. Most would take 2 hours to watch 60 minutes.

Supporters are locked out of training sessions so that the coaching group can pretend that they have something special.

In my opinion.

Caulfield will be a massive blunder, throwing good money after bad.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 07 vs Richmond

    It's Game Day and the Demons once again open the round of football with their annual clash against Richmond on ANZAC Eve. The Tigers, coached by former Dees champion and Premiership assistant coach Adem Yze have a plethora of stars missing due to injury but beware the wounded Tiger. The Dees will have to be switched on tonight. A win will keep them in the hunt for the Top 4 whilst a loss could see them fall out of the 8 for the first time since 2020.

    Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin ventured down to Gosch's Paddock to bring you his observations from this morning's Captain's Run including some hints at the changes for our ANZAC Eve clash against the Tigers. Sunny, though a touch windy, this morning, 23 of them no emergencies.  Forwards out first. Harrison Petty, JvR, Jack Billings, Kade Chandler, Kozzy, Bayley Fritsch, and coach Stafford.  The backs join them, Steven May, Jake Lever, Woey, Judd McVee, Blake Howes, Tom McDonald

    There’s a touch of irony in the fact that Adem Yze played his first game for Melbourne in Round 13, 1995 against the club he now coaches. For that game, he wore the number 44 guernsey and got six touches in a game the team won by 11 points.  The man whose first name was often misspelled, soon changed to the number 13 and it turned out lucky for him. He became a highly revered Demon with a record of 271 games during which his presence was acknowledged by the fans with the chant of “Oozee” wh

    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.
