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.

That wouldn’t suffice. They brought out the big guns last night at about 11pm. They *each had a go at that god-awful Celine Dion Titanic song. If I didn’t already hate that song with a passion, I do now.

Your best bet is to make yourself known to them socially and then work on the actual issue. Vietnamese culture generally shows very little consideration for people unless there is a personal connection.

You don't have to marry their eldest son, though. The very next step down from that is to grab a box of in-season cherries from a proper grocer and knock on the door. This time of year cherries even overtake vitamins as the preferred checked baggage for Australia to Vietnam flights. 100% not kidding. Premium fruit is a Vietnamese social activity and they'll even be sharing on social media how great their neighbour is. You will be officially inducted into the circle of people to be considerate of.

From there eventually you'll be able to set some boundaries. As long as you don't marry their eldest son. Then you'll be expected to bring more cherries every time they karaoke.

Only because society won't allow the kind of savagery that I would prefer to unleash upon people who don't respect basic boundaries.

Curses upon the inventors of things like CCTV and forensics. I could have been such a great serial killer.

Back to the cricket. I’m so sick of seeing a petulant Steve Smith performance when he is given out. He blames everyone or everything but himself. And to stand in the middle of the pitch and stare after he was given out is just plain disrespectful and bad sportsmanship. He was a very good player- he no longer is. As for holding up play while a ball of sticky tape is removed from the sight screen area, was just a joke. Time for the selectors to look toward the future. Hopefully he can join Warner on the sidelines. He’s lost my respect as a player.

I will say I'm glad Warner is stepping down. Not for any behavior issues but simply because he has been out of form for a very long time. Also I didn't get what divine right he had to some sort of send off. Maybe he deserves one but he didn't deserve in form anyway the right to keep playing until he could have a send off in Sydney.

I'd bet it's just another rip off from the big food engineering corporations with no flavor and a boat load of chemical colouring. Not that I'm cynical about these things 

Rest assured Mr Leg the world is safe with people like you and I addressing these big issues.

Having lived in both Sydney and Melbourne, I've never understood the schedule of test matches in Oz.

Sydney's weather is reliably rainy and should be the first cab of the rank in late November.

Melbourne is reliably unreliable and should be the last in late Jan. But too much tradition too change now.

Did Summers on Melbourne seem hotter when you were a kid?

I remember water restrictions with buckets to fill up our clark pool and swimming Christmas day. 

Visiting Melbourne...St kilda East where I grew up I was reminiscing about taking up street leaves from Great trees and burning them in the gutter. No such fun these days. Oh yes and the fireworks I could get at my local Milk Bar .

Fireworks were the best entertainment money could buy.

I'm seriously considering driving to the Territory to get some.

I also noticed there aren't kids playing cricket in the street with bins like I did until the sun went down.

Probably kids are all on the Internet buying laptops and phones.

 

Sheesh.

It's true. I think my parents were very negligent letting me and my siblings play outside as kids to all hours. It didn't seem to be on the radaar of most parents forty years ago.

A pedophiles happy days were the seventies.

Thanks for that sound advice! Cherries fix everything 🍒 😊

I live in a small circular court, only eight houses, and the occupants of the other seven houses are Vietnamese. I have never in my life lived in such harmonious environs. They’re all so nice to me (I’m relatively new to the court) they’re super quiet (apart from that Karaoke do they held the other night, hopefully not a regular calendar fixture) and their little kids are polite and well-behaved, not a single little sch!tt amongst them. Nonetheless, I’m thinking of doing the cherry thing, maybe in a couple of weeks when it’s New Year.

As for me marrying the oldest son of any of the families… yeah nah not gonna happen. But my 18yo son has noticed one of them has a beautiful daughter about his age so ya never know 🥰

Couldn’t agree more! I’m reluctant to ever say as much though since you can’t touch the golden boy. His otherworldly talent is undeniable, but personally I have never warmed to him. More so with Warner… can’t stand him. I’m on Team Mitch Johnson all the way.

The fruit giving tradition is common in other parts of Asia as well. Koreans love to gift pears, apples and strawberries. Mmm Korean pears ... 🤤

    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.
