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.

Look at those names.

They were all voted into the leadership group ahead of Green.

No wonder our club is a laughing stock.

I reckon he'd go missing if he was left to rot in the forward pocket all year long. He's a very dangerous secondary forward, but I think he would be wasted playing there all match.

Leave him in the midfield rotation, but instead of rotating him off like the rest of them, rotate him forward. If he's not fresh enough, rotate him off every second rotation, so you get a rotation that goes like midfield-forward-midfield-bench-midfield-forward.

Im with ya on that Nasher. gets me why they dont do things like that. Also it would disrupt the rotations of the opposition.. Bit harder to do a [censored] for tat rotation when one is still on the field.

edit

as a thought.. why wouldnt you swap Davey for green in that manner

I like the idea of him being a forward, rotated through the midfield if he isn't getting his hands on the pill or the midfield is struggling.

Generally I think exclusive forwardline roles should be left for those who are either genuine KPP players, or whose engines are too small to play regular midfield roles. Green is an asset in the middle when his form is good. I think if he was stuffed in the FP with only infrequent runs through the middle it would be a waste of a fit and capable midfielder, which in my opinion is much more important than a secondary forward.

Yesteday's game was about the most pressureless game of football I have seen in a long time. The only sustained pressure was the pressure a player put on himself.

This was the sort of game that many people tried and true players should perform well like Bruce, Green and Robbo.

Green had a good game but I was disappointed he hit the post and the shanked a set shot when both were gettable. He should have been talking of six goals not 4.

Green is a trier and not a world beater. He will never consistently dominate either the midfield of a KFP. It codswallop any one person wrecked Green's career up forward beyond Green. He was not good enough and Nasher's observation about Green disappearing was a consistent act when played up forward earlier in the year.

I disagree.

Green was played out of position by Daniher because we had no genuine midfielders and he and others like Bruce were forced to assume a role not suited to their style of play.

You lot underrate the value of a small or crumbing forward. By all means give him a run in the middle every now and then but Brad Green can have half the number of possessions in the forward line as opposed to the backline/midfield and yet be twice as damaging.

I would love to see this as well. Similar in some ways to Ryan O'Keefe.

I agree that Brad Green is a better forward than defender and worth keeping

His best position might be on a wing as he seems to excel better with less traffic

have always liked players who break the lines especially with todays fast paced style of game

Brad Green is 184 cm and is not a small or crumbing forward and lacks the pace and nous to play that role. We have Davey, Maric and Wonaemirri as those players.

Its a pity that your assessment of Green is not backed up by his performances. Green does not have the wits and skills to be a permanent forward.

Rhino, we may have those players but they are not doing the job, just chasing other players around, with reference to Green who I have bagged as soft in the past was surprised and enjoyed his game on Sunday I believe he can play forward and do a better job than Robbo or Neitz at the moment, there is one way to find this out who is right or wrong and that is to play him there at the start, until then everyone will keep on having a say.

He played his early years up forward and he struggled in a FP and will be cut to pieces as KPF given the questionable supply down forward.

He can pinch hit as 3rd/4th up forward from time to time. But where this side is at present and will be this year a "soft" :rolleyes: footballer like Green will struggle.

In all honesty from a pressure perspective it wont come much easier this year than Carlton. I would be hesitant to benchmark any performance just on that game

I am a bit hesitant about Green backing up this week, but I am hoping that DB might have got through to him, at least it is a start, now if only Chook can look interested and stop missing tackles chase hard instead of ooppssss I missed him again.

    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.
