  • 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.

Are there any racehorses in the Harry Potter stories.

No, but they have hippogriff's.

I'm getting the feeling you're out of your depth!!

A Hippogriff (also spelled Hippogryph and Hippogryphe, Italian: Ippogrifo) is a legendary creature, supposedly the offspring of a griffin and a mare.

I think I may have backed a few that ran like the one outlined in the Hippogriff photo. Congratulations on your win Redleg.

Write it real quietly Redleg.....(the name of the horsey) SHHHHHH.

Noble Game at 12.45. Probably a bit short this one at 2000m but will run again at Caulfield on 30th over 2400m and that will be his day.

Disappointing night for us, Aussie appears to have ended his AFL career and the Bombers come from 6 goals down to win,after Johncock who was starring, went off, Then the Crows lost another player and played one short for the rest of the game.

Our favourite female TV reporter on 10 news said that Aussie wasn't returning to Melbourne this year and wanted to play for a local Darwin team, the Thunder, next year. He will be delisted if that happens.

Thanks...I've only just caught up on the Aussie thread.

Prior to this I thought we're a bit thin on the small forward role. Even more now given this news. Maric will need some competition me thinks.

Benno I have not read it for 30 years but back then I found it very heavy going.

Now that might just mean that HP is aimed at kids.

Says something about me perhaps!

i did too the first time i read it - i spent the whole time working out who was who and what was what etc etc etc.

by the end of the 2nd read and the 3rd (yeah ive read it more than 3 times) it was an absolute joy and i could see what a masterpiece it was.

HP is teenager stuff... not that i mind that, i just finished smashing the last of matthew reilys books. they are flat out!

Bit unfair. Before Johncock got injured they were 6 goals up and he was their best player. Then they lost another player and played 1 short. You can't win playing short these days.

I thought that was why the rule was brought in...

It was, but if you lose 2 players , like the Crows,did, you are then short 1 player. The rule helps clubs that lose 1 player as only 21 players on rotation are available to play.

I am a little embarrassed to raise this here as it originates on the other thread, but I won't post there, though I think it is an interesting point.

Robbie F raised the issue that if you know who doesn't sign with GWS this year, then GWS, as they have offered him a contract can't take another uncontracted player this year.He said that if we signed up everyone we wanted to keep while you know who is deciding whether to leave, they couldn't make an offer to anyone else, until the decision was made. If we secure our boys then no one is available to them to grab this year.

I don't think that is correct. I don't think they are limited in how many offers they can make, but only in how many they can actually take under this uncontracted player poaching rule. They are limited to getting 1 player but I don't know of any limit on offers that can be made. What Robbie is saying is that if we sign up everyone we want to keep and then you know who stays, we will not lose anyone to them that we want to retain and that the club may be using the next few weeks to do this. Can someone clarify this.

Looks like the anti-Scully thread has sprung a leak - the skipper appears to have put an axe through the hull.

Bruce's call during the Adelaide game Friday night suggesting that the reason Graham Johnsock was nicknamed "Stiffy" was due to his unusual running style. Made me giggle a little.

    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
