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 had this one typed up but forgot to submit. If you can’t squeeze it in @Demonland I understand. Can ask it next week:

Schache kicked 2.1, had 9 disposals and 4 marks. As @binman touched on last week, because he’s a great shot for goal he doesn’t need a lot of chances to impact the scoreboard. Would you be satisfied if he had 4 marks and kicked 2 goals every week?

I'll allow it because we already have a Schache question and I can slot it in with that one without mucking up my run sheet flow.

Sure, which former Dees player could we most liken Caleb Windsor to, even though it's early days?

 

If you are old enough and watch how he handballs left handed the answer should be rather obvious

How did you rate Blake Howes game? 
 

My sense is he will learn reasonably quickly what his strengths and weaknesses are and adjust his game accordingly at the top level - can he make it at AFL level (I’d say probably yes) 

In the meantime we may see some goals leak if he stays in the starting 22 

Just my opinion be interested in your thoughts

Nup, not TJ.

TJ is an all time fav of mine, and funnily enough would probably suit footy cira 2024 better than when he played with the importance of wingers. And i can see the comparison. 

But whilst a smooth mover, Windsor strikes me as less, how should i put this - urgent? (was going to stay stoner like) and perhaps more hard it than TJ. And not as fast as Windsor.

Also, admittedly from a very limited sample size i'm not sure if Windsor is as good a kick as TJ, perhaps with Wattsy, the best kick i have seen at the dees.    

I can’t agree that Caleb is less urgent that TJ who I remember as about as lackadaisical as JW4.  Caleb seemed to have a lot of urgency.

Surely the devil incarnate would support Demons, unless he perceived them as a rival or a threat, in which case he would quickly dispatch them to Pyongyang central slaughterhouse.

Weird typo by me. 

I meant more urgent. 

Tj was the anthisis of urgent.

You really turned me on the bump issue.

I guess footy for me has always had an element of blood lust about it.

I started following in the dirty days of the 70s so I've seen a bit of biffo.

But lately and hopefully older and wiser.... ( my young 19  yo son plays basketball) ..I would hate to see him in trouble.

And since it's not my head on the  "chopping block" who am I to expect others to do so.

But when you call it out for what it is as brain trauma it really makes you think.

A dear family friend of ours in her early 20s who played aflw with a history of concussions can now no longer play. She has been devastated by this loss of livelihood and passion.

Will we miss the bump. Maybe . But footy will survive and will still be a wonderful sport to watch.

Well called.

Hot to trot; big future at our Club, unsettles experienced opposition and prepared to play on for better options upfield.

Hot to trot ? 
Didn’t seem to unsettle experienced opposition last week ? 
 

Not saying he won’t make it but I think you’re getting just a little bit ahead of yourself with this one

Good points Deever.....what we are used to doing and seeing is no longer acceptable, as we now know the damage concussions cause.

I was chatting to a fellow Demon supporter who was also a boxing coach.  I am no fan of that sport, but he pointed out the disparity of rules in boxing around KO/concussion, and that of the AFL.

KO with loss of consciousness for less than 1 minute = 90 days no sparring or fighting

More than 1 minute = 180 days

2nd loss of consciousness after return from previous = 360 days

1 KO  no loss of consciousness=  30 days

2 KO no loss of consciousness = 90 days

3 KO no loss of consciousness = 360 days

For such a brutal "sport" they actually take proscribe more care than the AFL with its lousy 12 day respite. 

We may not like it, because players won't be allowed to play, but better that than more Brayshaw, Barnes, Smith, Frawley situations....

Thanks for the unsolicited advice. I still reckon he performed well; I still reckon that he will go further, improve and be better than most opponents. Kind regards.

Thanks Andy, Binman, George On The Outer and all posters some great questions and responses, we are definitely champing at the bit to get this season going and wow 9 players under 23 possibly in the starting 23. Sad to hear that Woey is a bit banged up, still a couple of weeks before Casey start their year.!!

Changed chanting to champing. Lol.

Is it  chomping?( from horses) I

Your right....Im betting autocorrect here as champing is also used. Not sure if I spelt that correct though.

And yes Deezone, I'm so excited footy is back.

Seems like eons ago, last season.

Neither chompimg nor chanting.  Champing is the word, as you say from horses. (Though I see chomping is gaining currency.)

    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.
