  • 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.

Grand Finals aren't the same without MFC in it.

Hmm 3 appearances in 56 years means you haven't enjoyed many. In that 56 years I have been to a lot that I have enjoyed immensely. Especially 1970.

This is a new attitude OD, as of this year!

I've enjoyed many Grand Finals all jokes aside. 2018 was magnificient, also really enjoyed the 2012 one with the Malceski snap to seal it. As for 1970, wasn't around at the time but I specially bought it on DVD when I was younger because I liked the idea of wartching Collingwood choke over and over again. One of the true Grand Finals.

Went to my first game of live league football since my stroke yesterday. The game was held at Leederville Oval, which was our former home ground of 75 years. It was a strange feeling moving around the ground in my electronic wheelchair but I had a good view of the game from the fence line. Luckily I had help from my niece and her boyfriend as moving over sloped grass areas was interesting 🤔 

I have a very mixed view of the 2022 football season as I am so disappointed 😞 by how Melbourne finished it's final campaign. But our favourite teams cannot win all the Premierships they deserve 😤 😪 🤧 

May 2023 be more successful 🙏 🙌 😌 ☺ GO THE DEES!

The decade of debacles continues at Essendrug!  You have to wonder “what were they thinking” in this last episode. 
I am wondering what they can possible do to top the last couple of days.

I have confidence they will come up with something.

Spot on OD!

 I could be having the sh*ttiest day ever where everything seems to go wrong but I know I’ll sleep well that night safe and happy in the knowledge that Essendon is a basket case. And likely will be for quite some time. 🤞🏼

The president should resign now and a former President seems to be arguing for it to happen.

There doesn’t appear to be a single intelligent being among the ranks.

Sheedy began to lose his marbles many years ago and now he’s a big ol’ bursting at the seams bag of crazy ready to explode  

It’s a sheer joy to behold.

Long may it continue!

Hey Frog, how's it going?

I read your recent post about your electric wheelchair. You know if I was in Westralia , I'd let the tyres down!

I heard your maid was sniffing around Froggy’s lily pond.

Maybe just distributing some of your Romsey wine casks to the less affluent, or is that effluent.

    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
