  • 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.

This is exactly what I want to see, but would be starting Laurie and have Woewodin as sub.

That is still a very strong side and at full strength I could see Pickett in for Chandler, Oliver in for Laurie (moves to sub) and Petty in for Schache. So really 3 players off our best 23. McAdam is also another who might find his way in, just not sure who goes out for him. Hunter for Windsor is another, but I have a feeling he may surpass him quickly.

From memory it was mentioned that Shane McAdam was on light duties walking the boundary line in the last training report.

Salem's still injured right? I don't know if he would be available opening round.

Yes D/action my bet is that Clayton plays round 0.

Sorry WSW mentioned all availables and listed injiries but not McAdam. 

All the players that were not mentioned in the 46 were injured. Clarry and Salo will be mentioned next Monday as long as they don't get injured in the Richmond game.

McAdam won't be available opening round. T.Mac Oliver and B. Brown should be available.

You never watched the practice game. Tomlinson and Schache were awful and should never play a game in the seniors again.

Just realized that Hunter is available for the Carlton game. Think he'll be pushing it to get in the side by opening round but if he can play well against Carlton he'll have a chance.

I hope they move him to the wing, or somewhere out of defense.

Unfortunately he will be competing with Hunter, Langdon, Windsor, and possibly Billings, Brayshaw or Woewodin. Hard to see where he fits in. Foot skills aren't very notable, good athelete and runner but contest wasn't exceptional in defence. Tall-ish, but is he good overhead? Fingers crossed he shows something.

If Kynan can kick goals and play like he did last week if he does that and Kade does not get involved then he deserves a half forward role in the opening zero game in Sydney.

    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
