  • 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.

Yeah,  I was hearing Foles to Tate a fair bit but must have been on the earlier drives.  Speaking of drives,  good teams seem able to have long drives as part of who they are. 

The Saints being no exception with that 90+ yard,  22 play drive that seemed to go on forever ... proved the difference as the Eagles just couldn't get hold of the ball and then keep it. Yet,  a couple more completions on that last drive and you possibly/probably win the game.

I have to say, as good as Brees is and Peyton with his amazing playcalling... Saints D were incredible after 1/4 time. Shut out Nicky Franchise.

What I would give to have Kupp available this weekend.

He was pretty good vs the saints and I just read Goff averages less on passing without Kupp.

 

Kupp is super. I'd recruit Reynolds though, personally. Think he goes well.

Eagles are going with Wentz over Foles, not surprisingly. But I found these Interesting stats on bleachers report

When we lost, I breathed a sigh of relief. There was genuinely going to be a QB controversy if he went all the way and won another one. Wentz is the better player no doubt, and I'm not ready to see him go, not for a 1 and a player like people were suggesting.

Yeah Reynolds is good, but Kupp is our slot receiver, meaning Woods plays slot which in turns means a less threat down the side as Reynolds isn’t as effective and means cooks cooks more attention.

For us to win, we need to run the ball down the throat of the saints and punch it out the other side.

I don't have the Eagles as high as Rams... and Eagles probably should have won in the end on that last drive. I'll take Rams this week. (not necessarily my tip though lol)

Yeah have to agree there, I think they win if it was in Philly.

And yet. Philly should have lost against Bears with the Parkey kick. Not only that but Lutz should have ended the Saints game with his 52 yarder.

most games in the NFL I find have a turning point, sometimes it’s a turn over or a 3 and out, etc etc

personally im hoping for a massive win by the Rams where the game is over by the end of the first ?

 

Momday is going to be painful, I should get to see the game at 2pm, such a long time to avoid everything!!!

Happens sometimes in aussie rules too. Max Gawn goes to bench, oppo clears the ball and it's game on.

Eagles game it was the cheeky 4th down fake punt they did.

Rams 28 @ Saints 31

KC should win at home. But BB...................... I just reckon he'll find a way. Again

Yes GtB ... I have picked KC but if I wouldn't be betting against the Pats. So heart rules the head on that pick.  I like Andy Reid too and would like to see him win a SB. 

The Rams for Gorg as well but I picked the Saints only because they're at home and that is a big advantage for New Orleans.

Agree on the home field adv. 

For me for the Rams to win, Gurley and CJ need to get 180+ yards running and Donald and Suh need to be so far into Brees face all game.

And realistically our D will be the difference between win and loss.

Heart says we win, head cries...

    THAT WAS THE YEAR THAT WAS: 2023

    When the dust settled on 2023, the Melbourne Football Club coach Simon Goodwin lamented that the club knew it needed to score more to land a second premiership in the current era. He opined that an average of one more goal per game would have had his charges in football’s stratosphere.  Goodwin was right and, based on his team’s scoring opportunities, that extra goal (and more) was well within its grasp if only they had better converted their shots at goal. Take the side’s last six defeats
