Max Gawn has revealed sledging each other has been a problem for the Demons since 2020 in comments unearthed just after Jake Melksham punched teammate Steven May because the defender allegedly hit him with a devastating insult.

The Melbourne skipper said former Demon Aaron vandenBerg hit out at hurtful banter between players in a meeting two years ago, forcing the team to confront a lack of respect between footballers. 

Melksham has had surgery on his infected hand after punching May at an exclusive French restaurant on Sunday after the fullback allegedly told him, 'If you had played in the granny [grand final] we would have lost.'

Gawn confessed he has also been guilty of putting his teammates down and said the Demons made an effort to make their banter less pointed, especially when it came to performance on the field - which is the opposite of what May is alleged to have done.
