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.

Bulldogs by 12 goals on the rebound after the poor performance against the Saints.They will think they are a chance against us will expect us to run out of fuel tickets in the 2nd half like we have done for the past 3 weeks.......Going to go for the Stynes memorial and will take a good book to avoid the pain once the ball is bounced.

Dogs will smash us.

The game that's got me trembling is the Hawks at the G. I still wake up in a cold sweat from the memory of that 3rd quarter in round 1 or 2 was it last year. Scarring it was.

RR that will be nothing compared to this year, start thinking 186 or 196 or 206

Anyone who thinks we will get within 10 goals is utterly delusional. Going to be such an embarrassment especially due to the fact it's the big fellas tribute game. Not even the memory of his incredible spirit and determination will be enough to inspire us. I say dogs by 80 odd. Can only see us beating GWS this year and only marginally.

I found a substitute for Bex, it's called ice cream with hot fudge and lots of cream, chased down with a bottle of Jack Daniels and a lie down

I respect that.

Call me crazy but I reckon we are a good chance to beat the dogs.

I would absolutely love some of what you're smoking.... what is it? Must be good sh**

When was the last time we played the Dogs at the G?

The last I remember is the game where we came back from being about 40 points down, and White got us in front with a goal from the 50m line.

Edit: 2010. When the umpires wore pink, clashing with us. Lost by 4 points. I was holidaying in the USA at the time - almost thankfully.

Relax, we've got this

Nice, Sloonie. I did have a chuckle at that. I knew that statement would bite me in the ass. I think Bex and a couch should come with a melbourne membership.

when the dogs were up and about, they were one of the better kicking teams in the league. Sure they have dropped off a bit since then, but they still have much of the same cattle that will play on SUnday. They will no doubt find it when they play us, given we like to provide our opposition with at least 5 metres space.

Why is it so hard for us to man up? We continually give the opposition 1 to 2 metres head start and they murder us every time.

Dogs in a canter.

A bottle of Jim Beam and a blindfold mightn't hurt either. Can someone wake me up when we've uncovered or recruited a gun midfielder or two please. The losses might not be quite as painful if we aren't gettin smacked there pretty much every week, especially against mediocre opposition. I think they refer to it as 'hope' or somethin

Hmm i think we will smash the bulldogs

Its what we have done for the last 4 years (fire when everyone thought we had no bullets left)

then lament for the next month which is also what we do

too many players in our list are NOT up to AFL standard

Neeld will want to keep his job and get a broom , a very big one

Bailey failed miserably to acknowledge we even had a broom

Bailey looked at age and not on impact gong forward (Junior)

We should have picked up Dylan Grimes when we had the chance

At least the kid has a red hot go

The most embarrassing will come in Geelong.

I'm not so sure NSC

Kardinia Park (Simonds Stadium or whatever they call it now) is one of the narrowest grounds in the AFL if my memory serves me right. So at least the boys wont have to run as far around the boundaries. Might last 2 and a half quarters or even 3 on this ground!!

Yeah that and the Carlton game are gonna get real ugly real fast. 186 could be in trouble.

Dogs won't smash us. They'll win, but they're about on par with the Tigers so...

Oh, right.

I reckon Neeld was right to be worried at his press conference about supporter morale. GWS showed more in a couple of quarters than we have this year.

The Dogs will thrash us. In fact, GWS and Gold Coast are going to really put us under pressure (GC almost beat us late last year if I recall rightly).

Just ugly.

Cheer up Boys. Sunday night the mood of this forum will be a little better. Melbourne will definitely beat Bulldogs. This is a statement game for Neeld and his team (our team). A flogging is not acceptable.

it sure is ugly Ned! will turn around though. Dees have enough youth to pull us through this one in the second half of the season. In the past when we've been in similar situation the players were reaching the end of careers but this new batch it's the start.

    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.

    DEMONLAND: Good evening, Demon fans and welcome to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast … It’s been a beautiful last day of September and how sweet it is to bring you our coverage of all things that matter about the great Demon resurgence which we’ve seen over the past six or seven months. How our team overcame a turbulent off season and a disappointing start to 2024 on a humid night in Sydney, turned our detractors into believers and then ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    TRAINING: Sunday 7th April 2024

    Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin ventured down in the rain to Gosch's Paddock for the Demon Family Series April School Holiday Open Training session. Not such a good morning, weather wise. As I arrived, it starting raining, settled into watching some Victory players have a kick around. The MFC squad come out as the rain abated, they had wide smiles as the walked down the roped corridor. Plenty of joy from the supporters towards them, kids everywhere, maybe about 500 to a 1000 of us.
