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.

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 

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

Well there you go... That's the beauty of this tipping comp! 

Falcons ticking along okay, I'm still not sold on the rookie QB Ridder (had 3 red zone turn overs last week) with the NFC South probably the weakest division in the league it gives us an opportunity anyway. With a young family I haven't had a chance to watch them or the league as closely over the past couple of seasons, that'll be my excuse if I go pointless for the season haha! Although working from home on Mondays & Fridays does play well in the NFL season so try to see as much as I can!

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.

Can at least bin them from 40 yards? I'd look at anyone who can do that right now.

But then again, kickers are only ever sacked for repeatedly missing from this range or less haha. 

Floyd is just a stud pure and simple. Fits McDermott's scheme perfectly.

Missed two from over 50. The PAT you shouldn’t miss tho. 
But McVay called poorly at times and Stafford zoned on one read a lot through the game so if they played better his FG attempts might be closer and then miss less.

Highly doubt tomorrow will be a good day for me, Can’t see the Rams beating Dallas in Dallas. Our D isn’t great and I don’t think can hold Lamb or get to Dak enough whilst in the other side I think the Dallas D will make the olines life a living hell. 
The run game will be key, if we can t that going and slow the pass rush a second would be gold.

Well today started well in the first qtr, except their by the wording penalty and then the same not paid to us, theirs lead to a TD, ours a FG and that’s where the game stopped being good. Stafford smashed his thumb twice and looks likely to miss this week vs GB. Nakua has been an absolute revelation, it’s seriously like have two Kupps out there. This kid is special.

Ha! We're all getting caught out on trap games ... but trap games aren't easily identified! 

The good news is that this week is there aren't any trap games but if anyone can come up with 3 road winners, they'll probably pick up a well deserved bonus point

    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
