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.

Their loss, it is the biggest, most posted, most read, longest lasting and best thread ever on DL, never causing a problem either and yet for some reason there is this desire to end it.

Football is discussed, yet it is put on a general discussion board.

It's the biggest load of bs, trivia and wasted time. 

Best thread ever.

Cleveland got a show.

Looked at the field and all the odds.

Shortest is $4.40 and the longest at around one fiffty$.

With a field of only 24, has any one worked out the permutations of backing every horse?

There's usually a long shot that gets a place.

Calling all DL math wizards.

Put simply, if you put a dollar to win on every horse, you need a winner at 24 to 1 or better, to make a profit. 

I know someone who says she has backed the winner every year. She backs every horse in it.

Funny!

You will have three wins if you back each one for a place.( First is also considered a place, I think). Hopefully altogether they pay more than 24 dollars.

Anyone else watching the cricket? Angelo Mathews was just given for “timed out.”  I’ve never seen that before. He was more surprised than anyone.

Yeah the commentators just said it’s the first time this has happened in International Cricket.

It’s just not cricket! 🧐

Looks weird on the scorecard…

Was that to do with the time it took to get out to the middle, after a wicket fell?

No Daise, a batsman only has two minutes starting from the fall of the previous wicket to him facing up. Of course, you see it all the time where a batsman takes a bit longer than two minutes but it isn’t an issue. It’s up to the captain of the fielding side to make an appeal to the umpire, which is something I’ve never seen happen. There’s some bad blood between these two sides which is probably why Shakib appealed. The umpire had no choice but to give him out.

It’s actually 3 minutes.

But what’s a minute between friends?

Whatever it is , it's worse than getting out than handled ball or hit wicket. 

How do you explain it to your teammates. Oh wait you probably did while you were playing poker with them at the time.

I'm looking forward to the finals but I really think India already have it won. They have an exceptional bowling line up.

Still probably better than the slop they serve up from the good people at Netflix. New releases read like a list of Hollywood classics from the forties. It's now become a collection of b grade movies from Mongolia and 500$ "doco series" about mass murderers. The only people who this defunct streaming service appeals to these days are executive Producers.

For authentic, vintage rubbish you need TubiTV, but I'm pretty sure it'll install a virus that makes your washing smell funny and pokes holes in your flyscreen. I ended up there after seeing 'Bad Movie Bible' on youtube, which appears to be hosted by the unacknowledged offspring of Margaret & Dave from the movie show.

Ironically, 'Mystery Science Theatre 3000' is on Netflix.

It was 2 minutes when I played club cricket back in the 70's and 80's and everyone was aware of the rule.

In those days, the club kit might only have allowed to have 2 batsmen padded up, so if a couple fell quickly it was a rush to get padded up.

I also can’t see anyone else winning it, Deeves. As you mention, their bowling stocks are chef’s kiss. Shami, Siraj and Bumrah are absolutely  formidable. Add that to their batting lineup (Shreyas, Shubman Gill and of course, King Kohli) and it’s easy to imagine they’ll take the championship out without dropping a single match.

 

I still believe we’re the only ones who can trouble them, though.

edit: Even without Hardik who was yesterday officially ruled out for the remainder of the tournament they’ll romp home.

Sometimes not dropping a game builds ironic pressure.

the punishment seems way out of whack with reason

there must be other penalties more appropriate, like x runs per minute late etc

I agree it’s a very harsh penalty. It was avoidable, too. I reckon it wouldn’t have happened had Mathews not been so cavalier. He should’ve talked to Shakib explaining the issue with his helmet, the strap on it was loose or whatever the reason, and in all likelihood Shakib wouldn’t have appealed to the umpire. That said, it is an unsavoury incident.

    TRAINING: Friday 19th April 2024

    They are out for a run just as it starts raining. It didn't last long, ended up a reasonable session weather wise.  Light duties, BBB, rehab Farris-White, Melky, Salem and Spargo, all with private trainers. They are all playing soccer, huge amount of noise. 36-40 (difficult to get a count) in the main squad, biggest I've seen it in ages. Choco is barking out the orders. Goody has intense body language as he observes. Bowey in a lime green cap (no contact), and in the sim

    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.
