Demonology had a couple of passionate and erudite female posters called Judee and Allicat, neither of whom I have seen posting anywhere for ages, sadly. 

Allicat is, I believe, the daughter of legendary Melbourne runner, trainer and later water carrier the late and great Sam Allica who is a life  member of the MFC and was later inducted into our Hall of Fame.  Sam is renowned for being suspended for eight games in 1974 for abusing a boundary umpire!

Hope both ladies are enjoying our season and would be rapt if they resumed posting about the mighty Demons.

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?

I think Judee joined the Dr Who ticket for the attempted coup.

Fond memories of TGR, Rono, The Great Rono and whatever else he wanted to call himself taking on all comers re Jeff White who he just did not rate. Pretty sure he (TGR, not Jeff White) posted here for a while too after Demonology effectively went under.

Has anyone noticed the likes of @Moonshadow and Ethan Tremblay ( who's changed his name to @AdiósAdióswhich I'm guessing he's left) don't post anymore?

I too notice @Wiseblood hasn't been active since April, but see him on twitter a fair bit.

Great characters who added a lot over the journey.

Hatchman still posts here but isnt nearly as active as he was on "Ology. Didnt always agree with him but his posts were always worth reading.

Yep still around. I joined Ology in 2003 I think. Was very active on there as I loved the discussion and banter for about 5 or so years. Conversation was definitely better than here back then, but DL is a great site now

Looking back I probably went a bit too far at times, put it down to maturity and the petulance of youth, but it was fun and there were some great posters

Like a lot of things life got in the way, had kids, moved house, got better jobs that were more demanding etc... something had to give and our beloved team was hardly something to enjoy taking about for a long time so I faded away. Always kept my membership though even if I hardly ever went to a game.

I moved to California last year, got an amazing job opportunity that I couldn't say no to. The irony that the moment I moved away our team is doing better than it ever has in my lifetime doesn't escape me but I haven't missed a game and don't plan to!

I escaped from "Ology after the failed takeover. The Dr Who guy was a total weirdo who said he was only going to let "positive" posts stay up, and would delete anything that contained negativity. 

I had the same name there, and spent most of my time back and forth with a nutter called "HellhathNoFury", who said he worked as an "Operative" and was always intimating he had deep contacts but never came out with any worthwhile info. Super aggressive type he was.

Hatchman still posts here but isnt nearly as active as he was on "Ology. Didnt always agree with him but his posts were always worth reading.

I met @GSmith12 and @RobbieF and @Kumatomo_Ken... all terrific people. Robbie was/is a Foundation Hero who was a great read until he left.

 

Ahh, the old days....

Met RobbieF and one of his sons at a pre-season massacre of Adelaide many years ago. Wonderful people to be at the footy with.

@ding, did I meet GSmith with you at all? I feel I did but can't remember when.

Also said it before but @tilly was a cracker. Bloody hell he tore the Bulldogs supporters apart at a Casey game pre season (even though we got soundly beaten) He was actually so into them that I was convinced he was looking for a blue.

Funny guy, and again, great company at the footy.

 

As for Dr Who, I had no idea he took over the joint. He and his brother? drove me from the site before that happened.

I was the one that helped wrestle the site off the two brothers, can’t remember their names now.

but it was really bizarre as they were involved at the club somehow and I had the club call me about it. Can’t remember the ladies name but she said whatever you do don’t give access to them. They offered me $$ to sell it to them which I couldn’t do to Tim and Gsmith who helped me get it back.

 

I had to completely rebuild the forum and in the early days of the new ology it was a lot of work, we had some great times, I stopped running it full time around 2 years ago and let Radar run it, albeit still managing the back end up until last year 

it was fun, I really enjoyed it but I think it’s faded into the sunset.

’ land for me is so hard to navigate due to the amount of posters, but it’s got the most gossip that’s for sure! 
 

love going down memory lane seeing all the old posters, and seeing that some of them have come over here. I might start looking at this site more now instead of Facebook :)

I know their names, but ironically enough if you try to post them (not that I intend on doing so), it will be instantly censored like a swear word.

I know this as it also happens in private messages! 😯 

That said, it’s kind of understandable. The day of ‘ology’s hostile takeover is still the most surreal day since I’ve been here. We don’t need it relitigated by the Brothers Grimm through deliberate or unintentional doxxing.

Does anyone know how Tim Stanes who was a founder of Demonology is traveling? We used to see him at various combined Demonland/Demonology functions including the pre game get togethers at the Mountain View Hotel but it’s been a while and last time I heard he was unwell.

I used to post under a different name on 'ology and stuck a bit of money into it. There were some great characters over there in the day. Also some total ratbags. Fortunately there are none on 'land though. 

the former or the latter?  😄

hey, people...

things went sour on demonology when tim got sick...

we always thought that demonland was too straight-laced back then, but most of us migrated when there was no other choice and, I think, demonland improved (especially in grammar and spelling)... 😇

My favourite poster from demonology was Rono. Like Toby Green and Oscar Wilde, he was always controversial, larger than life, and made you keep coming back to view the latest outrage.

Regards to all,

One of the funniest things I've ever read!  Well done Biffinator and well found Rusty.

That is very nice of you to say that, Demonstone. Thank you. I have one other alter ego as well who does not wear red and blue - he  appears every so often on SEN . . . . Elsewhere, Tiger Fang on Punt Road End had a good run before he was evicted by Rosie.

Thanks for providing a great platform for all the years after Tim. I had a soft spot for ology because its where I started. Ology could get through the work system firewall, but Land could not. 

I stopped going there when there became too few posters and threads got dominated by a few. But in the early days the site really reinforced my love the Dees as an interstate fan. I have been lurking  around the boards since around 2002 or 3. I never really got time to post until I retired recently.

So thanks again, and also thanks to Andy. Damn good sites!!

As an aside, I got an email from the admin of 'Ology a week or so ago saying they were pulling the plug entirely. I set up an account recently, but seeing that it had the digital equivalent of tumbleweeds rolling down it's streets saw to it that I didn't make one post.

Very sad, as I started there as a lurker before becoming a fully fledged poster on 'Land. 

It never really recovered after the Brothers Grimm conned the admin into signing the ownership rights over to them. It's spluttered along ever since and was finally put out of it's misery.

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2021 by Whispering Jack

    MUCH ADO ABOUT NOT MUCH The 2021 Free Agency and Trade Periods were billed by Fox Footy as promising a “period like no other and that certainly proved correct but not for the reasons that Network spin suggested when promoting its daily program of news from the trade desk. The truth is that the football public has endured an uneventful and forgettable fortnight unless you perhaps, happen to be a Carlton or a Hawthorn fan. The Blues managed to pick up the biggest name of the trade peri

    CHANGES 2021 by The Oracle

    Part 1: Moving right along … For the first time in aeons, the end of the football season hasn’t felt as if it passed so swiftly. We’re still living the dream of 25 September, 2021 and rightfully so — we were patient, long-suffering and we’ve earned the right to party hard (as long as we’re not infecting the rest of the state as some health authorities contend). But we’ve also come into October which in football terms means that for one segment of the Melbourne Football Club — the recru

    THE APPRENTICE by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne Next Generation Academy prospect Mac Andrew has had a meteoric rise in the eyes of many track watchers who follow the fortunes of football talent at the elite level. So much so that under the AFL's new rules which prohibit clubs from matching bids on their NGA players within the first 20 selections, there’s a widely held perception that Andrew is falling out of the club’s grasp.   Despite being buoyed by the Demons’ drought-breaking premiership, some fans are showing their a

    OUR GRAND OLD FLAG by George On The Outer

    When an AFL Grand Final approaches, supporters look for omens to help them foresee how their team will fare in the contest.   Melbourne supporters were, until just before Saturday’s opening bounce, the best in the business at looking for positives to give them hope and direction - a natural feeling after 57 years in the wilderness. So when the Bulldogs’ streamers kept slipping from the handle of the Premiership Cup as Glen Jackovich delivered it to Optus Stadium, they wondered whether it

    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.

    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 th

    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

    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
