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.

Inside word. Hatred rating - 7/10. Bullshyte. You wouldn't be posting here if that were true.

It beggars belief. Hatred rating - 6/10. Rings hollow when the person saying it can't spell Mlebuoner.

Bleeds Red and Blue. Hatred rating 10/10. Could you be any more melodramatic?

FGS - say what you want say and do it succinctly. I have absolutely and positively and unashamedly no time for people who use these ridiculous and overstated and boring and self-indulgent personal grand-standing rubbish cliches. I know a week's a long time in football, but the chickens always seem to come home to roost each week when we start taking a good hard look at ourselves in the mirror.

Probably could have done a better job at that, but CBF'd.

Which repeated, mindless cliches do you hate?

Elite ....skills! Sh1ts me to tears. Absolute rubbish, as it is usually so far from the truth as it can be.

Only one I can think of at the moment, oh, actually I came up with another

IMHO. It is my experience that the people who sprout this off ad nauseum have opinions which are far from humble (ho007, this is for you :lol: ), and it is usually said in a very un-humble, condescending way.

"Future Captain". Excluded under the Brad Miller rule.

"Will never be a premiership player / you'll never win a premiership with players like that". Excluded under the Steven Armstrong rule.

Personally, I also hate it when people refer to "xx thousand years without a premiership" as if this is in some way an indictement upon the current club board and leaders.

WINNER:

A player is "soft".

If you are playing AFL football, you are definitely not soft.

A definite cheap shot from posters who never played the game higher than a kick to kick in the school yard.

SECOND:

A player would be "good trade bait".

Typically this comes from a poster who regards players that have played 10 games in 5 years with a lowly club like MFC as being of some intrinsic value to a another club who will give over a 1st or 2nd round draft pick and have not discovered that the player cant think, kick, handball, mark or tackle or any of the aforementioned. The same poster will also think that if you package 2 or more of such players in a deal that Clubs will go into a lather to get an NQR showbag of mediocrity

THIRD:

"That was the worst exhibition of umpiring I have ever seen." This only lasts until the next week when the same dross is trotted out. Also used as a fake and ignnorant excuse that "it cost us the game" or its part of an "AFL conspiracy to destroy MFC"

SPECIAL MENTION:

Personally, I also hate it when people refer to "xx thousand years without a premiership" as if this is in some way an indictement upon the current club board and leaders.

Absolutely. Self serving mindless dross that does not establish anything.

OTHER MENTION:

"He wont be part of premiership side" - A truly dumb comment when there are examples ofordinary players being in the right place at the right time that get a guernsey in a flag. This issue is whether that person is critical to a flag pursuit and whether you pay over the odds to retain the player.

Exception:

The exhibition of umpiring by the three maggots who ran the show at the Adelaide Oval last Sunday because I really believe it was the worst exhibition of umpiring I've ever seen and the non mark to Jeremy Howe the most inexplicable marking decision I've ever witnessed. Also, because it was the last game of the season, the memory is going to last more than "until next week" and this one was so bad that the memory might linger until at least four weeks into next season when we might run into Schmitt again. :lol:

I don't think this exhibition was part of "an AFL conspiracy to destroy MFC" - that's a ridiculous suggestion. We all know it was part of a conspiracy to give Gold Coast draft pick 4 ahead of the idiots at Port Adelaide who refused to tank. This will now enable the Suns to use that pick to get the Jaeger bomb and GWS will score the first 5 selections in the upcoming draft.

So, would IMNSHO be ok then (even if reeking of insincerity)?

Haha, nice one daisy.

I've thought of another. Why on earth when talking about a player or coach we would like does everyone have to say "a" Malthouse, "a" Shuey etc, etc? Perhaps "someonse along the lines of" might be more what you were looking for!

    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.
