  • 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?

Didn't even think about the hoodoo until I was leaving the ground. I'm really happy about this win for quit a few reasons. Hoping it provides a solid springboard into next season.

No doubt it's embarrassing, but it doesn't help when we're playing against a team nobody gives a rats about.

And actually the noise from the crowd and the atmosphere was brilliant

I was particularly fond of the deadly silence every time GWS kicked a goal, or the booing. It was a nice touch.

We also created a new one for the lowest crowd at Etihad, but that one is on us, not the players

I'm kind of thrilled with this record. It's the fans telling the AFL in no uncertain terms what they think of being given such a rubbish time against a rubbish team at the wrong stadium. If they want us to turn up they can let us play our home games at our home ground at a decent time. Playing the Spice Girls less would help as well.

Yep - there was a moment when a GWS player (do they have names?) kicked a goal from nowhere, and all that could be heard was the sound of crickets, and the weak groan of the gears in Derwayne's brain trying to work out what had happened. It was eerie seeing GWS players tussling each others hair with no crowd noise.

We also sounded very vocal on TV.

Most important records to break next year:

1. Winning 2 games in a row.

Until we break this embarrassing record we will never go anywhere

2. Beating North Melbourne

Because I hate their guts

After today, if we win round 1 in 2016 I'm calling it back-to-back and ticking off no. 1.

I worked out why we never got the points there up until today.

It thought it was to do with the wings and the size of the ground originally but now I know it is because we have been a bunch of weak spirited ,useless retardos for the past 10 years.

And GWS tanked.

That was also our first win the final round of a season since the Kreuzer Cup in 2007.

Was that at Doglands? Was that the last win there? We're any of our current list playing in our last win at Doglands?

Nope. It was at the 'G and Travis Johnstone ran around by himself for 46 or 47 possessions.

In a timeslot nobody gives a rats about (1.10pm sucks at the best of times), and on Father's Day.

I'm consigned to us being given more Etihad home games given Carlton wants to move more home games from Etihad to the G (and hey, why not right, they're Carlton so they get what they want), but hopefully the AFL will stop and consider whether there's any point.

Was that at Doglands? Was that the last win there? We're any of our current list playing in our last win at Doglands?

I think just Jones and Dunn.

We all know our embarrassing record against the Shinboners over the last decade but the boot used to be on the other foot . When they knocked us off on the G in 1969 , it was their first win there since 1952 !

That's the only thing I love about playing the expansion sides. The small crowd is amplified because everyone's on the same side

I'm not counting a Round 1 win as 2 in a row. It needs to be within the same season. Let's not get selective and desperate. We all know consistent foitball over a season is key.

Have we ever beaten a team by 39 and then lost to them by 98 in the same year?

In 1996, we lost to Collingwood by 94 points in Round 2, and then 8 weeks later in Round 10 we beat them by 38.

    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
