Posting Unsubstantiated Rumours on this Website is Strictly Forbidden
  • 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 one player that gets me turning up each week to watch him develop.

Still gets beaten in a lot of contests, but that’s to be expected because of his age and development. Has a great attitude, gives it his all in each contest. Seems to have a pretty decent disposal, and knows how to kick a goal

In a season that has been pretty disappointing all round, its nice to have at least one thing go our way.

Second round of the rookie draft? What a steal!

Agree IWAP. "Aussie" is great to watch. Already my 5 year olds favourite player.

Its always satisfying to get a great catch late in the draft or even in the Rookie draft. Our early picks might not have the best record, but our late picks and rookies seem to go OK.

Agreed. Alastair Clarkson said exactly the same thing a few nights ago on On The Couch. He said there are heaps of little things that DB would be happy about that are not discussed in the Public Sphere. All we as supporters can see is the scoreboard at the end of the day. Clarko said stick with the game plan becasue its the only way forward.

One thing that that has also gone unnoticed about him is that his skill and disposal levels are sublime, i would argue better than probably anyone else in our team at the moment.

Love the kid, his goal was right in front of us which has solidified cult status, but why was his efficiency only 50% from his ten touches? Anyone watching on tv or notice at the ground why this would be so?

45 didn't notice his efficiency levels watching on TV, I thought he was better than that.

His foot passing looks awesome compared to most of the side and hopefully we will see w few more of those kind of players coming from SA and NT with Baileys connections over the next few years!

Not me, I couldn't give a damn about the scoreboard. Iv'e hated the teams we've been putting out on the field over the last 5 - 6 years & have never really been entertained by them nor felt overly optimistic about them. In that time I've got my football fix by admiring the Lions, & Leigh Matthews style of footy.

Now I finally feel that we can build off our youth that we've recruited since 2003 & put some steel into them through the coaching of Bailey, but we need the priority pick & some more hard assed footballers, a mid & a power forward to start with.

PS< Aussie's a beauty, I reckon he'll be better than Davey.

Dazzle Davey claimed this bloke early, and we can see why. Aussie is going to be great player in coming years for the DEES.

Ouch I claimed this guy too!!! Just check out my signature.

Loved him and was so happy we drafted, just knew he would break into the team somehow and thats why he was one of the first selected for my supercoach team.

Also argued why he was a better choice for promotion than Valenti. We needed a player like Wonaeamirri at that time and it's proved to be a top choice.

Already probably my fav player, just cause I love love love to say his name.

WONAEA-FUCKIN-MIRRI!!!!

Man, I love Aussie

Him and Morton have been two great debutants this year. And will both be stars.

Add in a little Natanui, R.,Warnock, Grimes, Cheney and Maric, and we have a lot to look forward to.

Seriously?What aspect of Bailey's coaching reminds you of Leigh Matthews?Brisbane have been a 2 kicks to 1 handball side--even higher ratio when they won their flags.
Our new ambition is to have equal numbers of kicks/handballs.That's what's frustrating the heck out of supporters and commentators alike.
I do agree however that Daniher's recruiting post 2003 was good and should give us a base. But who chose Meesen and what do they think now?

Yeah how good is it to see that? Really great that the guys are taking him in as he is so quiet.

I saw something that made me very happy last week, was in the city having some lunch at a cafe and a few boys came and had a coffee and sat right near me. Was great Wonaeamirri, Davey, Robbo and Neita. Made me quite pleased to see big guys like Neitz and Robbo including the young guy.

I think chris connolly said on SEN during the week that his body strength and fitness levels are still a long way off where they should be for an AFL footballer. And you can see it too he is a bit pudgy around the face and through the hips. Once this guy is super fit and with a couple of solid pre-seasons behind him we might really see how good he can be.

An exciting prospect

Some here are very easliy pleased.

That said, I suppose we need something to evoke any semblance of hope.

I am with you H.

I have not seen Aussie do enough for mine to suggest that he is more than a fringe player in a poor side.

I have not seen enough quality posts from you to justify you being a moderator.

Aussie has made a solid start to his football career. He is young, raw and has a truckload of fighting spirit.

Quality posting has nothing to do with that requirement. And if it were, you would be tailing off at the rear of the site on that measure.

I can name a number of players that have gone through MFC that have been young raw and truckloads of fighting spirit.

They just did not have the ability and skills to make it at the top level. Not that it would be important in your estimations. :wacko:

    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
