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.

Kupp on IR so first four games out. So… 2024/5… when does that start?

Can't seem to shake off the hamstring concerns (Clayton Oliver - like)

And we're up to 400 pages ... who'd have thought?  Dappa would be mighty proud of that milestone

Sure to have @Gorgoroth seeing red! 

That's great haha

And I especially like that you've kept up the J.E.T.S  typed out tradition (Gonzo will be well pleased)

Speaking of which, I'll be taking a keen interest in how Rodgers is faring this season

So in the NFL, are fans allowed to have a 2nd team to support located in another conference? 

I remember not minding at all when Favre played for the J.E.T.S (texting scandal and all) but when he went to the Vikings, I still wanted him to do well (kinda/sorta) but not for Minnesota! 

Would have been like Gawn switching to a team like Essendon or Collingwood

I've got a mate who supports the Steelers so I've always had a soft spot for Pittsburgh

I don't know about the other conference but I have a soft spot for the Jags and Bengals, would like to see them do well.

Actually NFC wise Panthers are my team, played for a "Panthers" team in junior footy and like the colours, hopefully they've hit gold with their young QB. I also don't mind the Saints, New Orleans is one of the few US cities I actually would like to visit.

Divisions winners
AFC
North: Bengals
East: Jets
South: Jaguars
West: Chargers

NFC:
North: Lions
East: Eagles
South: Falcons
West: Sea Hawks 

Super Bowl: Jets def SeaHawks 

Wow!

The J.E.T.S!! 

Agree on most of the rest but how do you see your Bears faring?  And the Niners? 

Falcons winning their division would be a real turnaround

The AFC is going to be a bloodbath, there’s maybe 10 really good teams and the 3 stand outs from previous years (Bills, Bengals, Chiefs) might take a step back. I just like the Jets defense and play makers even if Rodgers isn’t great. 

Probably got too clever in my nfc pick. Thought the SeaHawks defense would take a step forward and Geno could back up last year. Might be eagles, cowboys and niners still as the class of a weak conference.

Falcons nearly won the division last year didn’t they? Panthers with a rookie QB. Tampa with Baker. Saints going to the well again with an ageing team and Carr. All Ritter has to do is play point guard for a really good offensive play caller and surrounding talent and the Falcons will be right there if not winning the division.

The bears will be bad. Had a stack of camp injuries which ruined their ability to get continuity which they need with something like 11 new starters and new back ups. Defense should be better if they can stay healthy for a month but it’s a bad d line and they need that time together and some bad weather. O Line hasn’t had any practice time together and Fields just isn’t going to be an nfl qb unless he gets Ohio State like time to pick his throws and he’s still a mile off getting that. They got a reality check today.

"How 'bout them Cowboys!"

Saw the first half. Our defence was superb. Absolutely monstered the Giants O line. Jones was getting pummelled left and right. Came up with big play after big play. Good start but the opposition must be taken into account. The Giants were very poor.

Packers had their obligatory easy win v the Bears.

I think the fact the NFC South division is fairly weak opens it up for us. Rookie QB is always going to be a worry but the front office has turned the roster over massively & Arthur Smith bought he’s successful offensive game plan from Tennessee so will be interesting how they go!

Yeah watching the Dallas game on the NFL Network right now ... impressive opener.  McCarthy calling the plays again

Packers won well but the Bears were banged up according to DS.  Still, a win at Soldier Field is always to be savoured

The NFC North might be a tight race

Jordan Love had a good game too.  His numbers were Rodgers-like haha

Paku Nacua the new WR for the Rams went 10/119 on 15 targets and they were some tough catches and gains. Not bad for a first game in Seattle. Might have found our #2 to Kupp.

Atwell also stood up this game with 6/119 from 8 targets. 
Staffords arm looked good, hope he stays healthy.

Yeah I'd like to see Atlanta back in the playoffs ... a good solid win to start things off

Ha ha! 

And in my mind, falling 2 points behind feels catastrophic

I'll tell you one thing, JV7, I will never take 1 point for granted in this comp ... they are like hen's teeth!

    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
