  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    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 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’ve only had 2 x 100 point victories this millennium. 
Both against Carlton. 

First in the naughties 

Second in the teens 

Get the twenties locked in. 

Telling stat. Really surprised.  And we have had some talented forwards in these years. With our fwd line depleted by injuries, form and experiments, it's remarkable the 100 plus ones this year. As much as I would love a ff kicking 4 a week, it's good we have such a spread of players hitting the board.

Have we ever played Port on a Friday night?

Yes, twice. 

Our first ever game against them was a Friday night. We lost at Football Park by 51. 

More recently we had a Friday night in 2018, in Adelaide. We lost by 10 despite leading at three quarter time.

We are the current league record-holders of the lowest percentage at the end of the season since 1966 (leaving aside the disintegrating shell of Fitzroy and the start of the GWS and GC franchises), with 54.1 in our reverse-stellar year of 2013.

I note that the Eagles currently are at 51.4 and will have the job in front of them to not take this particular unwanted crown from us.

They’ll be in the 40s by years end the way they’re going.

This is a record we have to wait for someone else to break, but we have the worst losing streak at any venue this century with 22 at Marvel stadium between 2008-2015. It's also the worst losing streak in the AFL era.

We'll be waiting a while for someone else to take the 21st century mantle, too. The contenders are Adelaide and Brisbane at Kardinia Park (13), Brisbane with 12 at the MCG, and St Kilda (11) also at Kardinia Park.

This seems a bit odd given they won their most recent game at the G prior to last week - obviously that was a final but why exclude it from the analysis?

We’ve slipped down a spot. 

 

The sub-record to this, which I suspect we'll never lose, is our #1 position, of the above top (bottom?) 7, in 'Degree Of Mercury' in the 'bookend' years: St Kilda bookended all its 3 years with spoons; Hawthorn almost did, with a spoon and a 2nd last (to us, 3 years after a premiership...); Fitzroy did even better, spooning then 'disappearing'; GWS spooned but scrabbled up to 3rd last; and WC, well...

We, on the other hand, bookended with an albeit very modest 14th but then a spectacular Prelim and 4th.

In two weeks West Coast play Brisbane at the Gabba. 186 could well fall 👌

The lions will have a training run. May even manage a few key players.  I cant see 190 & 186 points (Fitzroy)ever being passed.

Looks like we're stuck with it.

    SCRUTINY & RESILIENCE by Whispering Jack

    If the week when preseason training melds into scratch matches with other clubs, is the first marker for the beginning of a new season, then this has certainly been a torrid opener for the Melbourne Football Club in its campaign to remain a leading AFL premiership contender in 2024. The Demons were already under enormous scrutiny from the media and football’s fan base (including their own) after consecutive straight-sets finals exits, with Clayton Oliver’s well documented woes, the Joel Smi

    Angus Brayshaw Forced into Retirement

    After 167 games including the drought breaking Premiership Angus Brayshaw has made the heart breaking decision to medically retire from football as a result of a series of serious head knocks over his nearly decade of footy. We wish Gus all the best and he'll always be a hero at Demonland. 😢
