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.

Tbh I think his arm is decent and he seems to make the right decision nearly each time within his limits. Helps with those QB’s that the run game is very good.

Well as the old saying goes, if you have two QBs, you have none 😛

Bengals and Dolphins today. 

It kind of infuritates me to see Mike Mcdaniel off to a great start in Miami. I feel like he and the Robert Salahs of the world really helped Kyle Shanahan get to where he is with the Niners.

I'm starting to see Kyle in a way similar to Goodwin in that he can be a bit stubborn and really needs to get some good people around him. The offense is very system based at the moment and there are no wrinkles in the play calling. End rant.

Well he did come from the same place as McVay who loves sticking to the same 11 personal, but in saying that, he has gone from 88% 11 personal to 78% 11 personal and is using a WR as a full back.

Listened in after half time but Miami without Tagovailoa couldn't score

Glad to hear that Tua was discharged from hospital so it sounds like he's out of danger

Bengals too good in the end

It was bad to watch, he was cooked the moment his head hit.

They can’t play him next week, even with the longer break, he was wobbly the week before.

It was a decent game but TBH if Bridgewater doesn’t make some really high throws they prob sneak the win. Bengals still look out of sorts. Burrow is feeling perceived pressure on every play.

@titan_uranus@DeeSpencer

Tips!

Really looking forward to SNF & MNF

Bills @ Ravens might have been better suited to a late arvo Sunday slot but a good match-up nonetheless

Vikings & Saints are playing in London with the Saints as the designated home team (12.30am start)

And the Sunday games start at 4.00am, 7.00am - 7.30am and 11.15am (approximately) until Nov 6th

3 mins to go in the first half in bills v Ravens and the bills are horrible, dropped catches, interceptions on bad throws, dropped balls resulting in turnovers. 
Ravens O has been good but the Ravens D especially in the secondary has been fantastic.

Ah sorry I missed this week!

Mind you, I'm pretty sure I'm on 0 so far so it probably won't have made too much difference...

Why not kick the FG and take the lead??? 
 

Baffling.

I've never seen anything like it, total brain fade moment. 

Packers and Pats locked at 24-24. Might have to sneak off to our showroom downstairs to watch the end on my phone!

Rex Ryan is describing the new QB at the Jets (Zach Wilson) to the great Joe Namath

He's certainly got a great arm and is very athletic ... taken at pick 2 overall, he might be able to turn this team around

Might have just taken a year (2021) to find his feet

Ah yes Mr QB whisperer himself Rex Ryan 😛

In fairness I really like the look of this guy and that was a super win for him. He looks like he doesn't get fazed by much in that pocket either which is a big thing to have.

@layzie packers pats game was good fun to watch but not as fun as the chiefs spanking the Buccs, the score line in the end flattered the buccs.  Chiefs have unleashed a good RB in that rookie (can’t spell his name)

Chiefs are seriously good as is Mahomes

Packers battled but we've changed our approach with a focus on the running game

WR's need loads more time with Rodgers ... a real work in progress.  Still, a win is a win

Got a rocket arm has Zach Wilson ... another gunslinger!! 

@Dr. Gonzomight even be getting excited for his J.E.T.S!!

@beelzebubas well if my nemory serves me correctly!!

As for today's game (Rams @ 49ers) may the better team win (as long as it's the 49ers for tipping comp purposes!)

Could be close, all the same

Game starts at 11.15am

I missed the Chiefs vs Bucs game, will try and Youtube that one shortly. 

Gonna have to blackout the game today and watch it later :(. Not super confident, offense is still a few weeks off from humming.

Great comeback yesterday but still not convinced. Would like to see it over half a season at least before declaring him a franchise QB.

2 INT yesterday and a couple of the completions in Q4 were down to great catches rather than great passes - would be nice if we had an O-line that wasn't crumbling at the seams though!

Really like the look of Garrett Wilson and Sauce Gardner so far though, finally some decent playmakers on both sides of the ball. Haven't seen that since Revis/Holmes circa 2010. Hall and Davis have been good on offense too.

Next few weeks will see whether we have improved or not though. Miami, at Green Bay, at Denver, New England and Buffalo before the bye. If we go any worse than 2-3 it will be disappointing.

Jets are my team but I also keep an eye on Tennessee, Carolina and Jacksonville. Panthers seem destined for a top 3 pick but Henry has regained his pre-knee injury form and Jags are looking good so far. Was hoping they would upset Philly yesterday and they got off to a sizzling start but unfortunately not to be. Lawrence looks far better this year with competent coaching but needs to work on that ball security.

Just as stupid as the Browns doing it at the start of the game. End up losing by 3. D'oh!!

And how about that double doing FG attempt in London! Poor Saints fans haha

    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.

    DEMONLAND: Good evening, Demon fans and welcome to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast … It’s been a beautiful last day of September and how sweet it is to bring you our coverage of all things that matter about the great Demon resurgence which we’ve seen over the past six or seven months. How our team overcame a turbulent off season and a disappointing start to 2024 on a humid night in Sydney, turned our detractors into believers and then ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    TRAINING: Sunday 7th April 2024

    Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin ventured down in the rain to Gosch's Paddock for the Demon Family Series April School Holiday Open Training session. Not such a good morning, weather wise. As I arrived, it starting raining, settled into watching some Victory players have a kick around. The MFC squad come out as the rain abated, they had wide smiles as the walked down the roped corridor. Plenty of joy from the supporters towards them, kids everywhere, maybe about 500 to a 1000 of us.
