  • 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.

Rams lose rookie RB Wilkins until after the week 10 bye, just after they established a good run game.

Went out and signed Henderson to the practice squad and Myles Gaskin to the squad. He will have what, 2 days to learn the play book as we face the Steelers… not ideal at all.

Eagles build a side how it should be. 
build a strong offensive line then defensive line and then fill the gaps. 
 

Loved the throw back unis too!

Yeah, they're an extremely solid outfit playing very well.  And how do the other teams stop the tush-push?  Working a treat right now 

Eagles, Jags,  KC,  Lions, 49ers & the Ravens (?) are starting to create separation in their respective divisions

But it's a long season and there's probably still 20 teams in contention for the playoffs (remembering that 14 teams contest the playoffs now)

I'll have a go at the top 10

Eagles 

49ers 

Chiefs 

Miami

Jags 

Bills

Ravens

Lions

Atlanta

Dallas

Vikes matched the niners for toughness today. Did not see that and Cousins was huge!

I don’t think the niners played bad, Vikes just had their measure today and without Jefferson too, I actually thought with Jefferson they weren’t much of a chance.

Been teams like the bills that have dropped games badly, Cowboys the same. 
can the browns finally get things together? It’s a wide open season. And as well as the Eagles were, Miami has a lot of very good players to return from injury soon.

Just got to get to the playoffs and then anything can happen.  At this stage maybe the Chiefs/Eagles to get to the SB but there are any number of teams that can get on a roll.  Home field may or may not be an advantage 

And there's bound to be a couple of teams get hot at the business end

Trent Williams was a huge loss for the Niners. He gives them a lot in the run game, but also provides Purdy and Kyle confidence in the pass game that the backside is locked down.

So I wasn't totally shocked to see the Niners offense struggling. My guess is they kind of have some up and down weeks for the next stretch of the season whilst they contemplate how much they can ask of Purdy in the playoffs.

The Vikings offense surprised me, but Kevin O'Connell knows the Niners D from his time at the Rams and is a good coach, so I guess it shouldn't have been a total shock that they had some chances. The big surprise was Kirk didn't go full prime time Kirk and was making plays late in the game.

Rams cut their kicker. Not surprised, what’s annoying is we didn’t re sign Gay who was great over the last three seasons and would have cost sod all.

Watching Leonard Floyd smashing it also hurts since we are paying his wage, another dumb off season move.

Cheifs, Ravens, Eagles...

In all seriousness @Macca the pointless battlers, we must be getting into uncharted territory for longest start to the season without a point 🤣

2 participants went pointless for the entire season last season and 1 of the 2 participants still hasn't got off the mark this year!  Intolerable cruelty 

But said participant could get up and win it.  You never know!

And we had a 4 or 5 week stretch last season (around the same time frame as right now) where no one received a point

It's a tough comp that gets tougher

Still, everyone is within striking distance of leading the comp so there's that

As for the Falcons, your division is down to 3 who can win it.  Handy win against the Bucs on the weekend

    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
