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.

Raheem Morris has interviews with Seattle, chargers, panthers, commanders.

Interesting.  There's certainly a few vacancies

All the more reason why Belichick is now saying that he is "Targeting talented but underachieving teams"

Bill gets to call the shots with his fantastic record.  He might only have 3 or 4 prime years left but teams can rise quickly in the NFL

 And there's a lot of teams that would like to taste SB success (Some for the first time)

I agree with what Marcus and Dan were saying on NFL live, Chargers seem the best for for him.

It was initially hard to tell what was going to happen with Jim Harbaugh, he's really been great for College Football but I think it's time for another crack at the NFL. Another one who would perfectly suit the Chargers situation, though it sounds like Atlanta will speak with him too.

Looks as though Bill will be the new Falcons HC by all reports... Not sure it is the best decision long term, but BB will certainly sweep clean the place top to bottom which is most definitely needed!

Nobody can Jerry doesn't back in his head coaches. Stuck with Garrett for far too long and I reckon he should have bit the bullet with McCarthy. He has not addressed the mental fragility issue with this group and if he hasn't sorted by now, he never will. Hope I'm wrong but I don't have much faith in McCarthy breaking the drought.

McCarthy is too QB-centric.  He was the same at GB but because Rodgers was so good, it always looked like it might work

And it did work early (SB win) and then we'd get close but ultimately our all-round game (lack of) got found out

And I'm not sure that Prescott is as good as Rodgers so it is a flawed strategy

To me it's when it gets to crunch time or the big moments.  McCarthy leans on the QB but here lies the problem, the opposition know it so the bluff is taken out

Dallas passing yards was 3rd in the league and they were 14th for rushing

Run defence was 16th and passing defence was 5th

So not too shabby but do SB winning teams lie mid table on rushing & run defence?  You'd maybe expect at least top 10 for both categories in order to win big

By contrast, the 49ers are 3rd in rushing and 3rd best on run defence.  Passing yards 6th & pass defence 14th

Also the irony of Bill coming in to fix up the franchise as we've never been same after 28-3!

I still reckon that SB was more about the incredible comeback by New England more so than Atlanta losing control of the match.  Still, hard to cop even 7 years hence, JV

They (NE) played lights out and everything went right for them. It took a champion team to do it and enormous self-belief.  No other team could have done it

So if you get Belichick, that's what he will bring.  It will be an exciting time for the Falcons.  He's still got it 

To me, he's the best coach I've seen across all sports.  Better than Alex Ferguson or Jose Mourinho or anyone else

But he does need a talented roster, any coach does

Thats all true. 

but the manner of the defeat, the lack of belief, the collapse of confidence speaks to a deep rooted phycological problem. The Cowboys have no mental fortitude. McCarthy will not solve this next season. I hate to say it but they will flop again.

Both of us can be right but these days, I tend to focus more on the technical aspects of sport

For instance, I reckon GB's only chance is if Love can complete a large amount of passes and with it, gain lots of yards.  Plus, we'll need the 49ers to make a few errors

I'd be most surprised if Jones is allowed to run into the backfield frequently... but you never know!  And how do the Packers stop the Niners run?

Jackson excellent on that TD scoring drive. He's in the groove.

Houston can't get their run game going at all. 

Early days but looking like it will be a comfortable day for the Ravens.

    ICEBREAKER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons have broken the ice for season 2024 with a pulsating come-from-behind victory over Port Melbourne in which it took the lead for the first time at the halfway mark of the final quarter. The game played in mild Autumn conditions in neutral territory at Kinetic Park, Frankston, never reached great heights in standard but it proved gripping in character at the end at the Casey Demons overcame the Borough to win by 15 points after trailing badly early in the second half.  P

    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.
