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.

I take your point DC but Windsor will be introduced into the team in a similar way to Riv, Jacko, Kozzi and bowser. The coaches have managed the debutante’s extremely well so far.😁

riv, jacko, kosi - rd 1 from their debut season?

they were picked from the get go from memory

Kozzie debuted R1 2020 but Riv & Jacko debuted against Blues in June 2020.😁

Yes wwsw I must admit that I had forgotten that 3 mth break between R1 and R2 in 2020 and those three boys debuted in R1 & R2, how strange was that year? And just shows that we can’t place limitations on our new recruits.

I loved training today and i thought it was  lot more intense and more full on than it has been previously.   Wouldnt be surprised if theres one or two debutants in windsor and howes early in the season.  Very pleased that the gates are open to the public now, and it was lovely to meet you today Ros.

BUUP BUP BUP BUP BUP BUP BUP BARRRRRRRR DA DA ( Ritchie's Guitar wail at the end!!😁
 
NO SHOWS/ REHAB 

PETTY, MELKS, HUNTER, FULLARTON,JEFFERSON, Not sure I saw SALEM

CLARRY  and VERRELL both doing a POWER OF RUNNING and sheeeeit does CLARRY look mean, fit and PUMPED
 
MATCH SIMULATION NOTES
 
Full match simulation of 4 quarters I which I saw 3 quarters
 
WINDSOR ... an abslute LOCK for round one, really surprised me with his turn of speed, precision set ps and pin piont disposal, might become our best ball user and Wow has he got some X FACTOR
 
DISCO TURNER ... probably the best I have seen him in match sims, deft movements, a turn of speed and makes very sound decisions
 
JACK BILLINGS … 
another LOCK for ROUND 1 just uses it so well, makes excellent position and his decision making was fantastic
 
SHANE MC ADAM … took not 1 not 2 but 3 MARKS OF THE DAY, will complement Fritta magnificently, just knows where to position himself, very very dangerous arond goal and will be an absolute SURPRISE packet

ED LANGDON ... HAD IT ON A STRING , Elusive, quick, precise and typical Langdon run all day
 
ANDY MONIZ-WAKEFIELD ... Again I mention him and although quieter later was heavily involved of the back flank, wing and anywhere else, CAN PLAY
 
SPARGY PANTS ... The Salt and Pepper man was in everything, played very well and bobbed up all day
 
TAJ WOEWODIN … A lot to like, gets involved is fearless and sets up the play very very well. One to definately keep an eye on

KYNAN BROWN … Just NEVER GIVES IN, just gives and Gives with second and third efforts, good skill set and elusiveness
 
SHACHE ATTACKY … Did some very good things took some marks, was very competetive with Max and although overshadowed, I can ALMOST see him playing round 1 based on today
 
ONE WORD SUMMATIONS

MAX, Outstanding
KOSSY Freakish
TOMLINSON Belongs
VINES Beast
MAY Fearless
LEVER Methodical
TRACC Superstar
 
A lot going right, very high standard game and one which should give the selectors plenty to think about in the coming weeks.
 
Cheers PF 
 
P.S Saw one Slthera dead on the road , but still wisely went around it! 😱
 

Love your work Picket and a special mention to Brenno great stuff. A lot of talk about locks for the opening round would you be able to do a best 22 based on training? That would be great you know how much I love my best 22's.

Appreciate all the detailed reports here.  Thanks to PF, Brennon, WCW & anyone else i might have missed.

Just to confirm, Maysie left the track after 20 min or so yes?  If so that is a real concern.

Might be best to put him in cotton wool for a while, fully assess and go from there?

Last thing we need is May breaking down with a nagging niggle throughout the season.

No Petty, May and/or Clarry early would be a real bummer.

Gee No. 6 looks good. Had to look up the player numbers on the MFC website. Its Windsor.

He really moves well - reminds me so much of a young R Flower. No pressure on the young lad or unrealistic expectations this year but boy he looks to have great balance

Your training reports are getting more over the top by the session! At this rate we’ll win the flag and a first year player will own the members wing, Schache will win the Norm Smith and Nibbler will become the most loved Demon!

Some much better forward entries and some good pace on the footy in those highlights.

Playing on inside 50 too which might be an example just to get used to sharing the ball.

Windsor looking more comfortable than I’ve seen him the last 2 Wednesdays. That raw pace could really open things up 

I was excitied by some of the highlights i saw as well. As a trackwatcher DS are we getting a bit ahead of ourselves though, are teh match sims full on or just 13 v 13?

 

What i mean by that is, it looks pretty now in Feb but come July/August it's cold and the game is on the line the F50 isn't quite so open.

    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.
