Wasn't Bluey one of the main protagonists over at Demonology? 

Nah, Bluey was a Legend.
He'd chime in with some biting wit about the club that was usually on the money that the snowflakes would lose their minds over.
Never bothered arguing over any of his posts.
He'd lob a grenade and watch the carnage.
Always amused me.

Demonology was great in its day.

I remember doing a write-up for the site on one of those Member Forums they used to have at the Bentleigh Club. This was back when Paul Gardner and Bev O'Connor were on the Board.

There may have been some crossover with Demonland, but I also have memories of another board member Peter Dohrmann actually posting on Demonology, and I'm pretty sure even recruiting guru Craig Cameron did at one stage as well.

And there was even the chance to meet people on the forum in 'real life' when posters volunteered at the club, and went to their offices and called up lapsed members.

Of course before Demonology, there was a Melbourne Demons e-mail mailing list thing which I joined. If only I still had my Ozemail account.

All true and I was in that mailing list too ...

The Demonology personalities sound like they were far more abrasive than on here.

There were some doozies for sure. But it was good in its day. I was asked on Kevin Bartlett's radio show which one is best (surprised he knew there were two, let alone one) and I boosted ology! Before it degraded, obviously. (Shout out to 'land mods.)

Bluey was a character. 

Used to enjoy Craig Cameron's contributions as CaC63 if I remember correctly.

What a trip, I was just wondering about GSmith (Graeme) a couple of days ago and thought about posting, enquiring about what he’s up to. Glad to hear he’s enjoying retirement. We had a good rapport. 
 

I remember Rono (TGR) calling this place Strawberry Fields, because it was all positivity and niceties. Yeah nah, add that to the list of [censored] he got wrong. Haven’t seen him around for a while. 
 

What about Rollo? Is he still around?

Rollo popped on here out of nowhere about a month ago and had stated that I think he's in an old folks home. I tried to start up further conversation just to see how he was tracking but didn't get a response.

Rollo was a highly respected member years ago. He alongside @Whispering_Jack were big organisers in the Forum Footy against other internet club forums.

Rollo use to live in wangaratta where I also lived and we had many great discussion about footy and life I general.  I hope he is going well still.

Used to read it back in the day but I can't recall if I ever posted there...unless that was the site where we used to go to war with other clubs supporters I remember a particularly vicious battle with members of Dockerland where I felt I had to get involved to protect our club's honour...I doubt they infiltrated here...

Another 'Ology member here from the early days. Many fond memories of the argy-bargy that occurred on a regular basis. Some great, and provocative, posters there back in the day. My moniker was on_the_bench.

How's this for a bump?!?

 

I came from demonology originally, can remember thinking this joint was wack and the 7 active posters on demonology were way smarter than you bunch of lunatics. From memory it was around the time Ricky Petterd was running around, always liked that guy.

 

Anyone else from/remember demonology?

 

 

Wow, this thread and all the old demonology usernames is a bit of a blast from the past!

He was such a character. I’ve never met him but we had some top banter on ol ‘ology.

Is Range Rover still there? I know he retreated to 'Land during the constant aggro on this board concerning whether Neeld and CS should stay or go.

His legendary (if slightly self aggrandizing and delusional) resignation letter still makes me chuckle.

I found Range Rover highly entertaining 

He could see the imminent Train Wreck of 2013 happening 

A lot of people just didn’t want to believe it

Fully agree on the point that he was correct on what was to come. However, his sign off was a bit much!

Absolutely agree. But it was a shame

He sent me loads of PM’s back in the day, as we agreed on a lot about what was going down. 
Sadly his exuberance got the better of him on here

But i do miss reading some of his rants, and he would write 3-4 in quick succession!!

Definitely.

Though it must be said he wasn't Robinson Crusoe there. At that time, sometimes the hyperbole of the message overshadowed some basic truths about their content. I include myself in that category. 

I tend to be less negative today than I was then. But bloody hell, you couldn't say that the vitriol wasn't deserved at times.

Kudos to the mods of that time who were able to read the play and not be as officious with censoring some of the furiously incandescent posts of the day.

I didn't mind Range Rover at 'Ology.
He often kept threads rolling which was often needed at times of quiet.
Couldn't handle TGR.
Was sure he typed with one hand while pleasuring himself with the other.

Totally agree. The Club was a total wreck at that time, and Members and Supporters were hurting bad. 
i left the Essendrug 148 game at 3/4 time. I never did that before. It was my tipping point. Players were running away from the ball

I posted on demonology 8 or 9 years ago simply because it was the first fan site I found.  It was just after the brothers tried to take over the site.  There was a chap by the name of Jarrad who was running it then.  I think he hoped to generate enough income from the site to cover hosting and license costs but there was never enough traffic.  Then Radar? took over the management.

I organised the Grinter? votes per round for a number of seasons, which was ok when we won, but a dead loss when we lost (Me myself and I plus number one son had to vote to make up the numbers).

Whether it was Demonology or Demonland it was always passionate (sometimes crazed) supporters of the MFC.

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t
