Posting Unsubstantiated Rumours on this Website is Strictly Forbidden
  • 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.

Niners sign McCaffrey, cheap this year, 12mil next year.

Surprised a bit by this as it takes away the role Deebo plays very very well. 

I don't think it will hurt Deebo, they don't want him in the backfield too much especially until the playoffs. What they can do is line up McCaffrey and Deebo both in the backfield or motioning to the backfield and come up with a heap of route combinations.

I'm more surprised they were willing to give up so much draft capital for this last desperate Jimmy G year when you have to think they need picks to support Lance in future years.

Lions look like they have scored, get a really bad spot the 1yrd when it at worst should be inches, then fumble on the very next play. Why the [censored] with three time outs down by 4 do you not challenge it or at least take the time to ensure it’s not a score.

Great fit, but if they think they are one RB piece away from a Superbowl team they are kidding themselves.

For me the niners are a funny team, they have most of the parts, except for the QB, they hope that is Lance, but he is injured and Jimmy G is solid without being spectacular. The problem is when they run into the better Defensive teams ie chiefs, bills etc they have to score enough to match their opponents offence. Even with a great defence teams like the chiefs, Bills are going to put 20+ points on you min.

Niners can get better as they get some players back, don’t think they can beat the bills or chiefs who I think win the SB this year.

the most interesting thing for me is hitting that window when you have the young players on the rookie contracts to compliment the established stars. Next two years they will have some players looking for a payday.

Dolphins, Pats, Titans

Just when the Jets were becoming fun we lose our #1 offensive weapon Hall and AVT - Davis injured too but not sure whether he's ok to suit up this week or not.

Zach looked terrible against the Broncos but they do have a formidable defence - I'm expecting similar this week against Belichick on the rebound after losing to the Bears at home (great game!) Belichick has made an art form of making young QBs (and young Jets QBs) look stupid and I expect this to continue on Monday

Has anyone ever gone pointless in the tipping comp? I think I'm giving it a big shake this season.

I once only had 1 point after 11 weeks but ended up having the 3rd most points by seasons end

From memory a couple went 10 weeks without scoring points and both had won the comp the previous year (the winners curse?)

Well another game where our D give up lots of big broken plays, miss a billion tackles and give up dumb penalties.

Stafford in the second half is 3/11.

Still no run game, McVay has no idea how to win when he can’t pass heavy. 
We are on the verge of missing playoffs.

Ive somehow missed half a season of tips! Ill jump back in next week...

Amazing triple crown of TDs for Christian McCaffrey this morning, rushing, receiving AND passing TD. First time anyone's done it since LaDainian Tomlinson all the way back in 2005. If he can stay fit, and given he's only been learning the playbook for just over a week, will be well worth the investment.

    SCRUTINY & RESILIENCE by Whispering Jack

    If the week when preseason training melds into scratch matches with other clubs, is the first marker for the beginning of a new season, then this has certainly been a torrid opener for the Melbourne Football Club in its campaign to remain a leading AFL premiership contender in 2024. The Demons were already under enormous scrutiny from the media and football’s fan base (including their own) after consecutive straight-sets finals exits, with Clayton Oliver’s well documented woes, the Joel Smi
