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.


When will Melbourne break these embarrassing records?

Richmond game - early 90s we beat Pies and Dons in a row. Not sure that was their GF year, but both were flying like us. 
 

Nek minit   - Swans in Sydney, lost 22 straight. Game Osborne convulsed onfield. 
 

Don’t  disbelieve my MFCSS

Now I think of a Viney foot tap to Jackson  or a Harmes pass to Fritta or a TMac goal  

 

❤️💙🏆

11) Have never beaten North at Marvel

 

This one is crazy, but also has a lot to do with not playing Norf at Marvel in the last few years.

We went through a good decade where we couldn't buy a win there, and now we rarely lose in that hole of a ground.

Most of those are borderline ridiculous and beyond my caring.

You've obviously never been teased by a Sydney supporter over the fact that we haven't beaten them on a Sunday at the MCG since 2001.

My non-MFC  mates rib me about that one all the time, and they're not going to stop regardless of how many flags we win.

I cop it continually from my work colleagues that we’ve never beaten Hawthorn in the 4:35pm time slot.

Maybe this year might finally be that year.

Getting shunted yearly across the Tasman definitely has not helped that record.

I'm taking it one week at a time. 😜

In the past decade I think we've only had 2 home games against the bombers.

 

From 2006-2021 we’ve hosted Essendon twice. 2010 and 2019 were those years.

The reason doesn’t make sense but I recall about 5-10 years ago an MCC spokesman confirmed on radio that the MCC requested to the AFL that Melbourne plays away games to Essendon and Carlton at the MCG and therefore increasing the chances we’d miss out on home games against those 2 clubs.

That makes no sense considering we would want home games occasionally against those teams for the gate takings.

It's not as if it saves us from having to play 6 games interstate a year.

I always assume we played Essendon as the away team because they never (or rarely) forced Essendon to don their away guernsey and it was easier to shaft us and make us play in the Bali tops.

It was the Melbourne Cricket Club, not us as a club that requested that Melbourne plays Essendon as an away game at the MCG.

Apparently the MCC also compiles and lodges a fixture request list with the AFL.

I remember an AFL or MFC person also saying a number of years ago that we get Essendon away because we get Collingwood home each year. Now that we share the gate with Collingwood and Richmond it's more likely we'll get Carlton/Essendon home games every other year.

That's crazy talk, the only one that stands out that annoys the [censored] out of me is the North at Marvel.

Wouldn't mind beating Port twice in a row in Adelaide to really stick it right up em for the years of torment.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 07 vs Richmond

    It's Game Day and the Demons once again open the round of football with their annual clash against Richmond on ANZAC Eve. The Tigers, coached by former Dees champion and Premiership assistant coach Adem Yze have a plethora of stars missing due to injury but beware the wounded Tiger. The Dees will have to be switched on tonight. A win will keep them in the hunt for the Top 4 whilst a loss could see them fall out of the 8 for the first time since 2020.

    OOZEE by The Oracle

    There’s a touch of irony in the fact that Adem Yze played his first game for Melbourne in Round 13, 1995 against the club he now coaches. For that game, he wore the number 44 guernsey and got six touches in a game the team won by 11 points.  The man whose first name was often misspelled, soon changed to the number 13 and it turned out lucky for him. He became a highly revered Demon with a record of 271 games during which his presence was acknowledged by the fans with the chant of “Oozee” wh

    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
