Discussion on recent allegations about the use of illicit drugs in football is forbidden
  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    Posting unsubstantiated rumours on this website is strictly forbidden.

    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 issue of illicit drugs in footy, 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.

SNF this week is Chicago @ Green Bay

Oldest rivalry in the sport with 203 meetings.  Packers hold a slight advantage with 103 wins vs Bears 96 wins (along with 6 ties)

MNF has 2 games this week and both could be keenly contested ... Titans @ Bills along with Vikings @ Eagles

The two 7Mate games on Monday morning are decent too

3.00am Bucs @ Saints

6.25am Arizona @ Las Vegas Raiders

 

Yep, one of the oldest and fierce rivalries around. You could make an argument for Cowboys and Eagles being the biggest divisional rivalry but there's something about games with the conerstone NFL franchises and I love the history with this one. Some great stories about how Lombardi was always paranoid about Hallas having spies at Packers practices!

Chargers v Chiefs was a cracker, it was all about the D taking the chances, KC pick Herbert on the 1yrd line and run it back 99, chargers drop 2 very good int and missed a few others. 
cracking game tho.

Herberts ribs are either broken or bad,t bruised and he still threw a dart down field.

That was a classic football game. Hope Herbert isn't too bad that was a hell of a performance.

Micah Parsons is a star.

Bengals look super poor up front, Rams tried to blow a big lead, Ramsey came up big at the end. Browns, Ravens and Raiders did blow big leads!!!

Rodgers still owns Chicago but they looked better running the ball well.

Miami look strong. But still need to maintain it.

 I would not be paying Lamar Jackson what he thinks he deserves. I don’t think he will ever deliver a SB to the Ravens.

There is steam coming out of my ears.

For the 3rd time in 4 years one of our marquee players has succumb to a season ending injury: Trey Lance has broken a fibula and had possible ligament damage.

Yes you do these plays when the game is there to be won but this was 2nd and 8 in the second quarter with a running game that was already buzzing! We'd run him in a series of QB draw plays but this one was more of a zone read and the inuwas horrific.

As a Niners fan it is hard not to be angry at Kyle Shanahan right now. Last week and this week calling plays that invloved Lance running between the tackles through the middle and potentially getting hurt. Well he did and Shanahan took no responsiblity whatsoever in his presser. We traded 3 picks to get this guy and decided to use him as a FB, nice job! Couldn't help but think of RG3 in Washington where both Mike and Kyle were involved in calling that play 10 years ago. 

Plus side is the Jimmy G comes in and we know he can win you games. Don't think he's quite good enough to win or even get us to a Superbowl this year but playoffs are not a lost cause. Still damn frustrating, Lance missed so much football in College from Covid, hardly played last year and now loses another season.

Bills smash the Titans and the Eagles dominate the Vikings (Where's Dappa?)

Packers win but we've got holes to fill.  Jones was good but he needs to shine against a team like Tampa (good luck!) Dillon ok as well so the running game looks better a year on

Run defence still wobbly (allowed 180 yards) Pass defence better but we're at the Bucs next Sunday (late game) Brady vs Rodgers

Don't know what to make of the Bears.  Their D just allowed too many yards but the passing game wasn't there.  Still, Fields can get better with more games under his belt

Bucs win well at the Saints (held them to 10 points) ... Tampa look the team to beat in the NFC

Jags shut out the Colts!  Clint can tell us what happened as I've only seen brief highlights

Rams win against a fast finishing Atlanta

Former Ram, Jared Goff threw 4 TD's to get Detroit up over the Washington Commanders!

49ers get it done against the Seahawks.  The NFC West could be a 3 horse race although the Rams still favs

Bills look the team to beat in the AFC although KC will be thereabouts

Giants win again but the Eagles loom large in the NFC East.  Dallas win an important game with the QB (Cooper Rush) having a big game.  Cowboys aren't out of it

Miami win a barnburner at the Ravens.  Dolphins are 2 & 0 and only 6 of the 32 teams are undefeated after week 2

As for the tipping comp ... we are all still in the barriers!!

Rams lose another lineman for the season, and CB Troy Hill is now on IR, so misses at least 4. Our oline is worst in the league and now has lost three from it. This is not good, we couldn’t run it well prior to these injuries. 
we did have success using Skrownek (sp) as a full back… I mean a WR as a full back… and it worked… weird.

Some good games this week - especially the evening matches & the late Sunday games

Tipping a bit easier this week but be aware of a trap game or 2

2 points up for grabs this week plus a bonus point on offer if you go it alone

    GAMEDAY: Rd 07 vs Richmond

    It's Game Day and the Demons once again open the round of football with their annual clash against Richmond on ANZAC Eve. The Tigers, coached by former Dees champion and Premiership assistant coach Adem Yze have a plethora of stars missing due to injury but beware the wounded Tiger. The Dees will have to be switched on tonight. A win will keep them in the hunt for the Top 4 whilst a loss could see them fall out of the 8 for the first time since 2020.

    Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin ventured down to Gosch's Paddock to bring you his observations from this morning's Captain's Run including some hints at the changes for our ANZAC Eve clash against the Tigers. Sunny, though a touch windy, this morning, 23 of them no emergencies.  Forwards out first. Harrison Petty, JvR, Jack Billings, Kade Chandler, Kozzy, Bayley Fritsch, and coach Stafford.  The backs join them, Steven May, Jake Lever, Woey, Judd McVee, Blake Howes, Tom McDonald

    There’s a touch of irony in the fact that Adem Yze played his first game for Melbourne in Round 13, 1995 against the club he now coaches. For that game, he wore the number 44 guernsey and got six touches in a game the team won by 11 points.  The man whose first name was often misspelled, soon changed to the number 13 and it turned out lucky for him. He became a highly revered Demon with a record of 271 games during which his presence was acknowledged by the fans with the chant of “Oozee” wh

    TRAINING: Friday 19th April 2024

    They are out for a run just as it starts raining. It didn't last long, ended up a reasonable session weather wise.  Light duties, BBB, rehab Farris-White, Melky, Salem and Spargo, all with private trainers. They are all playing soccer, huge amount of noise. 36-40 (difficult to get a count) in the main squad, biggest I've seen it in ages. Choco is barking out the orders. Goody has intense body language as he observes. Bowey in a lime green cap (no contact), and in the sim

    ICEBREAKER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons have broken the ice for season 2024 with a pulsating come-from-behind victory over Port Melbourne in which it took the lead for the first time at the halfway mark of the final quarter. The game played in mild Autumn conditions in neutral territory at Kinetic Park, Frankston, never reached great heights in standard but it proved gripping in character at the end at the Casey Demons overcame the Borough to win by 15 points after trailing badly early in the second half.  P

    MAULED by Whispering Jack

    The writing was on the wall from the very first bounce of the football. The big men went up, Max Gawn more often than not, decisively won the ruck hit out and invariably a Brisbane Lions onballer either won the battle on the ground or halved the contest and they went at it repeatedly until they finally won out. Melbourne managed the first goal from Alex Neal-Bullen but after that the visitors shut out every area of Demon presence around the ground except in the ruck duels. It was a mauling.
