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?

We haven't won a final in consecutive years since 1990/91 - that would be a nice one to tick off this year.

Aside from Gold Coast who haven't even played in a final yet, we hold the longest drought in terms of not winning a final in consecutive years.

Next I think is Carlton - 2000/2001.

Win a final outside of Victoria

- Last win: Never (2 games, 2 losses)

I'm not sure if we can cross this one off the list.

Technically we were the home team in all our final wins so we essentially had equal if not more of the crowd support in all three finals.

I consider this drought still active until we win a final outside of VIC as the genuine away team.

None of these records embarrass me anymore, win flags and the rest is irrelevant. 

Well maybe the 190/186 point losses if we can eradicate that I'd be happy.

Eradicating the record 190 point loss can be done in one of two ways. Either somebody else loses by 191 points to another team or they lose to us by that amount. I'd take either, as it gets us out of the record books. However, I wouldn't object if we were the team inflicting the pain for a change.

Haven't been able to buy a Chico Roll at a Melbourne game since about 1979.

 

I was really upset when For’N Twenty discontinued their fantastic Cornish pasties. Always had one or two at a game. Disappeared about two decades ago I believe.

Do Chico rolls still exist? Or have they gone the way of other fine delicacies like the Polly Waffle?

Available n Coles, but I don't want to cook them.

Just buy and devour........ at the footy.

We need to win 4 in a row…. (At least..)

So that Tiger, Whorethorn and Jeelong persons can be silenced and told to “Sit Down”

And so that we get back to the top of the ‘number of premierships’ list, where we belong!

Not beating North Melbourne at least once at Marvel in the stadium's 21 year existence not raise your eyebrow?

We haven't played North Melbourne at Marvel since 2014. Not like we've had the opportunity lately.

And we've only played them there 8 times in total, six of them over a period of 5 years when we were hopeless (2009-2014).

We've just won a premiership. All those other piddly records are history and meaningless.

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. 

And Sydney haven't beaten us at the SCG since 2016. 😉

Slightly different, but still waiting for a Melbourne player to kick 100 goals in a season.

Maybe it will be Bbb. Tough effort to do in today's game though.

quite possible given we will kick 400+ goals over 25 games :)

Has there ever been a team with two players kicking 100 goals each in the same season? If so, I can't recall. I do remember when more than one player in different teams kicked 100 goals in a season. It's hard to believe now, but when we had full forwards like Hudson, Wade, McKenna and Jesaulenko (who wasn't always a full forward) and significantly less defensive pressure, I think it happened a few times.

Hawthorn had Hudson 105 in 1977 and Matthews was second on list with 91 for the season. 
 

Different footy those days - Tigers kicked 23 goals in GF  and lost

Yes that is quite possible 

early 90’s

ok, here we go (since 1968)

3 x 100 goal kickers: 

  • 1970 Hudson McKenna Jesaulenko
  • 1993 Modra Ablett Dunstal

2 x 100 goal Kickers:

  • 1969 Hudson Wade
  • 1971 Hudson McKenna
  • 1972 McKenna Blethyn
  • 1987 Lockett Capper
  • 1991 Lockett Sumich
  • 1992 Lockett Dunstal
  • 1994 Dunstall Ablett 
  • 1995 Lockett Ablett
  • 1996 Lockett Dunstall

as you can see there were 2 golden periods 1991 to 1996 (shown in green) and 1969 to 1972 (shown inred)

Quite ridiculous that 3(!!) players cracked the ton in 93 considering there were only 20 H&A games per team (2 byes each) - the same for 1969 as well.

In fact some of the earlier goalkickers like Coventry, Pratt etc would have been during an 18 game H&A season, Pratt kicking 150!

    TRAINING: Friday 19th April 2024

    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

    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.
