Dead buried cremated?

Well you'll never post there again if it continues to track the way it's going?

Looks to me like the formation of an oligarchy which will be as relevant as that of Hutt River Province.

It's a community that means something to some people. Doesn't mean anything personally to you - fine. I for one would be pretty pissed if Andy and Jack were tricked in to handing over the keys to De

I dont think people who cared and invested time in the site give a toss what your point is Stuie. Do you even have to ruin this thread with your non stop rubbish, please spare us

Stuie why do you have so much interest in this, I've posted a few times but that's maybe because I was, up until 4 or so years ago, a regular poster. Let me assure you if I hadn't posted on there I wouldn't even be bothered opening this thread more than once.

What's you problem, these guys have lost their home, the place they go to all the time to speak to their mates about the Dees so perhaps a little bit of understanding might be in order. Ology is not everyone's cup of tea but it means a lot to those that regularly post/read there.

Button up.

Still no answers. That's all I want. I've said how bad I feel for the regulars that it's shut down, but I'm still yet to hear how this evil guy that's taken over is going to ruin MFC and make heaps of cash. That is what I don't get and why I don't understand the panic about it.

No its alive Ronnie. But if you think this place is Strawberry Fields, then those clowns are about to turn Ology into Willy Wonkas Chocolate Factory.

It will be dripping in saccharine. Your brand of caustically holding the club to account will not be welcome.

Give this place a chance. Its not the starry eyed teenage retreat we thought it once was.

LOL... How much do you think that site is actually worth? Double of nothing is nothing.

You asked the question, fanta pants.

If someone is willing to pay for it, there is money to be had.

Now run off and die somewhere like a good boy, will you?

We know you dont get it or understand it as you have not been involved in the site at all, if you managed to read the many threads over there before they were deleted by the Molnars you might have more of an idea of why people are so angry. The Molnars who took over that site are nothing but parasites trying to profit of others hard work

Right, so in other words, you have no idea.

Thought so.

If there's going to be any upside to this it would be having more CIP posts here. One of the good ones from what I remember of your posts.

Yeah look I DO get that. I've said all along I understand why people are devastated about what's happened to the place, I'm a member there myself, (was the first place I found actually), but I just don't understand why people are saying it's going to effect MFC and they're going to make money off it.

You might as well just rename this thread Demonology.

The boys club is ripping into anyone who expresses a differing opinion the same way it did over there.

No, this is classic Demonland. One person with an agenda to be a pain in the r's takes over a thread, unintelligently engages others and it soon ends up 50+ pages long with little discussion of the actual issue at hand.

All I've done is ask questions. What happens in response is I get shouted down and called a troll, but no one actually answers the question with any factual information.

THAT'S classic Demonland.

There has been a lot of statistical and historical input in to Ology, in particular work done by Graeme Smith, and this work was supposed to be available to all concerned when they had re written the site.

it was all about the history of the club and the history of the players; this work will now, not be available unless the new owners allow it and it really doesn't belong to them or in fact the previous owner.

That's my understanding of the situation unless someone wants to correct me.

Now you've had your fun so zip it.

Unless you really have a valid point to raise or something of interest to contribute?

Just a reminder folks that this is not the time and place to become embroiled in the relative merits of either site or for posters to abuse each other.

We're happy for this thread to run to help repair what's been done to Demonology but it's really up to the membership, the new owners and hopefully the old to sort this out and we hope that it does get sorted out to the satisfaction of those people who have posted on Demonlogy, some for more than a decade.

Please don't force us to close this thread down because it's become a place for people to conduct their own irrelevant and trivial bunfights.

Thanks.

No one can answer 'factually' because the people who have taken over the site have not come clean about it. If you are a member over there and feel this issue is critical to your thinking then perhaps go over and ask?

Thats quite ironic considering the crap you post

i thought this forum was to discuss the Melbourne football club

not for a bunch of grown men to cry like babies and attack each other over issues on some other website

    UNDER MY SKIN by The Oracle

    The story goes that there’s a certain player from Geelong who has been seen in Moorabool Street crooning the old Sinatra classic, “I’ve got you under my skin.” His name is O’Connor and he’s been tasked to achieve one thing on Sunday by his coach, Chris Scott: to get under the skin of a Demon midfielder on Sunday and thereby tag him out of the big contest at the G. The idea behind the tactic is to not only blunt one of the team’s most destructive weapons but to distract them all from producing th

    CAPITAL PUNISHMENT by George on the Outer

    A 34-point win in the nation’s capital has seen the Demons kill the Giants hopes early in the 2021 season. It wasn’t only the scoreboard, but a succession of injuries to major players for GWS that has put paid to their aspirations. The winning result wasn’t just due to the opposition losing players, but also to the relentless pressure from this 2021 Melbourne side that put them in the winners circle. In past years, a 16 point deficit at the first change combined with a rampant Toby Greene w

    POWER AND THE PASSION by Whispering Jack

    The Demons ran out for their Qualifying Final match against the Fremantle Dockers at Casey Fields as the sounds of Midnight Oils’ “Power and the Passion cascaded over the mainly friendly pro-Melbourne crowd. It was a far cry from the season opener at Carrara in late January where few of their fans were in attendance in high 20’s heat and humidity and silence greeted every score from the slow-starting Demons. They ran away from the lowly Suns, won comfortably in the end and followed that with ano

    BREAK OUT by Whispering Jack

    Despite the chaotic events occurring in Canberra over the past few weeks, one thing is for certain. This weekend’s game at Manuka Oval in the nation’s capital between the GWS Giants and Melbourne will decide which of Scott Morrison or Leon Cameron is the most under the pump at this point in time.  This time twelve months ago, the Giants were coming off a season in which they had played off in a grand final. They opened up their 2020 campaign with a resounding 32-point victory in round 1 aga

    MARVELOUS PRESSURE by George on the Outer

    Is this a new form of Melbourne which has suddenly emerged in 2021?  In the past, whenever the pressure was applied, the team would falter early and as a consequence, it would more often than not, be forced to confront its own self-inflicted failure. But perhaps not so this year. The match at Marvel Stadium against the Saints provided an insight into how creating pressure, actually relieves it on the club, players and coach. Right from the start, Melbourne was there to make a stat

    STUCK IN THE MIDDLE by The Oracle

    Throughout the off season, St Kilda was touted as an improver and a possible challenger for a top four position mainly off the back of another good trade and draft period at the end of last year. Then in Round 1, the undermanned Saints made a shaky start and almost succumbed to the Giants but they managed to come home from a wet and woolly Sydney with the four points intact. For Round 2, they have a couple of handy players returning so they come into the the game at Marvel Stadium choc

    A SCRAPPY, SLOPPY SUCCESS by George on the Outer

    After what seemed like an eternity without Footy in Melbourne, the Demons and their fans produced a scrappy, sloppy yet successful return to the MCG. Yet is was against an interstate team from the furthest reaches of the country, but the 21K fans who made it through the gates, was way below expectations for numbers.  Sure it can’t have helped with all the difficulty that Ticketek imposed just to get a ticket, and since you just couldn’t walk up, perhaps the number wasn’t that surprising.

    UNFINISHED BUSINESS by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has unfinished business with Fremantle after that unexpected loss in their previous clash at Cazaly’s Stadium in Cairns cost it a place in last year’s finals campaign.   Back then, the tired Demons spluttered listlessly through the humid conditions in tropical far North Queensland playing in and losing two games in the space of four days and against two lowly clubs. The end result was much more than an embarrassment for the club given what was at stake at th

    PRACTICE PUMMELLING by George on the Outer

    Was this a practice for what lay ahead for the Demons in 2021 or was it an outcome to expect because it was used as a true practice game? Those of us on the outside will never know, but a 39 point loss to the Western Bulldogs was a pummelling in anyone’s language. We can draw some consolation from the players that Melbourne put on the field, with Toby Bedford, Jake Bowey, Kade Chandler, James Jordon and Tom Sparrow each getting a guernsey whereas they probably would not normally be in the f

    A WALK IN THE PAST by Whispering Jack

    On Monday night, the Melbourne Football Club handed out four life memberships. Two of those awards went to men who are long gone. Charles ‘Chubby’ Forrester and James ‘Jas’ Byrne played for the club in the 1870s, even before the Victorian Football Association was formed. The other two are current skipper Max Gawn and swingman Tom McDonald, who almost left the club at the end of the pandemic-affected 2020 season. Some fans might have raised their eyebrows and wondered whether the emphasis on hist

    SOUNDS OF SILENCE by Whispering Jack

    This was my first game for points involving the Demons in more than a year and a half and the long march to Carrara turned out to be worthwhile. The game was won in a single withering quarter that was dominated by Melbourne on the back of an outstanding display from Karen Paxman. The four-time All Australian picked up 13 touches for the stanza to set up a five goal to nothing second term after a lacklustre start in which the cleaner, sharper Gold Coast notched up the first two goals of the game

    BRIDESMAIDS AGAIN by Whispering Jack

    Historians of the future will have little difficulty in finding words to define the year 2020. “Covid-19”, “pandemic” and “plague” come readily to mind. The Covid-19 pandemic dominated the year in every aspect of life and it certainly didn’t spare AFL football or the Melbourne Football Club. In the circumstances however, it didn’t treat it as badly as the Spanish Flu epidemic which raged a century earlier from February 1918, through 1919 and into 1920 when it finally petered out in April of
