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.

Glen [censored] Maxwell. How absolutely un- [censored] - believable!!!
It might be nearly 4am but I wouldn’t have missed this innings for the world.

They are calling it one of the best innings ever in cricket and I missed it.

There must be a replay on Fox to watch.

You can watch a good highlights package on YouTube. I tuned out when we were 7 down. Came here to post and read Neil Compton's post and then the highlights. 

Has to be the best innings ever.

I also gave up on the match. 😭Spewing I did because seeing it live would’ve been quite something else. Highlights and replays just aren’t the same.

First unbeaten double-century scored in the second innings of an ODI, not just a World Cup match, but in all ODIs. And first time ever by a batsman who wasn’t an opener. And it’s not like he came in at first drop… he was #6! 

The poor bugger was cramping so badly he could  barely walk. At one point, while cramping in both legs he had a sudden spasm in his back which dropped him. He was gonna have to retire hurt but he pushed through the pain and refused to quit. Inspirational stuff right there.

Not to mention his unbeaten 201 was off 128 balls! 10 sixes and 21 fours. What a phenomenal innings.

Maxi is absolutely incredible. So happy and proud he’s ours.

Arguably THE best innings in an ODI ever. I stopped watching when Marnus got out because at 5 for 69 who’d-a-thunk?!?!

His best shot was a reverse sweep, around the stumps rising into the air,  over first slip, over third man and went deep into the crowd for six.  It was at a critical time when he couldn't move, they hadn't scored much for a few overs and time appeared to be running out.

If he hadn't hit so many great shots it could be thought a fluke.  It was no fluke!!

About the same here. I think I lasted until Starc was out.

Came on here to vent and saw Ncs post about Maxwell. Wth.

 

Probably the Best knock in any format .

Great support from Captain Cummings.

But Maxwell on one leg just standing there and swatting  them over the fence was sublime.

The guy had bowled ten overs in 40 degree heat and then comes out and makes a double century. All after a week of concussion.

SA and India fans must be sweating now.

The less talked about part of the innings was that Cummins scored only 12 runs in a 202 partnership.  Now scoring only 12 takes some doing!! 

The way Maxwell was able to keep the strike was quite special.  Somehow the Afghanis set fields that left him time to stroll through for singles even tho towards the end he couldn't even walk. 

He was in The Zone and the AFghans seemed mesmerised.

I think the Indian crowd was mostly pro Afghanistan. But you could hear and see their allegiance change as Maxy went about his business. He was cheered on in the end. And why wouldn't they.

Sounds like you really enjoyed it as well LH.

Before anyone says it was only Afghanistan, it should be said they have some very good players. The fact that every other Aussie batsman failed is proof of their bowling prowess. It's true that Afghanistan's bowlers were loose at times but that was simply down to the pressure of Maxy smacking them all over the ground. Seeing him stand there on one leg was as #WcW mentioned , inspiring.

Forget Bazball.

Not sure their allegiance changed to the Aussies.  More that they knew they were witnessing a once in a lifetime cricket event and loved it.  It was the stuff they will grand kids about in years to come.

I saw just the last 45 minutes but it was great to see.

Agree, saying 'it was only Afghanistan' does not do justice to either side.  Maxwell took his chances, Afghanistan did not.  As Demon fans we know how quickly a game can slip away when that happens.

I bet you were on the way home during the comeback against Fremantle, too.

Wait... no, It's WCW I'm talking to. You were probably so close to the action Woneaemirri's sweat splashed on you when he did his celebration jump.

Nah, that was back when I attended matches on my own and was nowhere near the action. I admit that I did used to leave matches early when a loss was highly likely. Can’t do that anymore. Now I’m there long after a match, usually right up until security kicks us out. Especially after a close or unexpected win.

Bulldogs paying out $6mill to survivor of sexual abuse as a child whilst under duty of care of Footscray. Biggest payout of that type in Australia. 

Does that come from the Club or through insurance?

and that is only the beginning.

there were other boys(multiples) molested (one was even a witness)

dogs saying they will appeal.

    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.
