Discussion on recent allegations about the use of illicit drugs in football is forbidden

    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.


    Thank you for your continued support & understanding. Go Dees.

Let's not get carried away. Yesterday was a good win and in the context of where we had been it was a tremendous, even team performance. It was very pleasing for Demon fans that we beat a team that we have only beaten once in 10 previous games.

However the effort was first rate and we beat the dogs one on one all over the ground. We out tackled them, beat them in contested possessions and played for four quarters despite the dogs surging back. This was absent against the Hawks and our effort was really poor. If it was a one off then great. Time will tell.

Last week we employed no different tactics against one of the more powerful teams in the comp than we had in the rpevious two weeks against the Swans and Freo. This was my original criticsim in the OP. We allowed the Dorks to dictate terms and got pummelled. Now if the narrative is that we effectively conceded that game to get players focused on the bigger picture - and this turns out to be the case - then that will likely be seen as a masterstroke. But until we win two in a row and we see consistent efforts from players then I won't be celebrating too hard. If they bring the effort against teh dogs to our next three games then yes we can get excited that we may finally have turned a corner.

I hope so.

very well said

A turn around of 144 points in a week was not solely to do with the quality of our opposition decreasing. We were a completely different unit yesterday than we were the week before and it's all above the neck. We have been a bit of a see-saw all year really, thinking back to the first 3 rounds we were great, horrific, and great again in defeat. It is all about whether Roos and co can get them to keep bringing it every week.

Watching the bulldogs and saints play the way they do reminds me of Bailey era of 2010 and early 2011.

Say what you want about him but on field he had us on the right track. We were playing some of the most exciting footy i had seen during my time supporting this club. Its no coincidence guys like Frawley Trengove Jurrah Gysberts Scully Grimez were developing really well and all looking like bona fide stars, we were all applauding what a young gun Jordie Mckenzie will be because he was tearing the competition apart with his tackle count. We were heading in the right direction on field.

But thanks to the board administration led by Chris Connelly Cameron Schwab they killed of all the soul and positivity of this club. Im not going to go right into it as i will probably get a couple of weeks if i write on here what i really thought of those two.

But if your board level doesn't support the coach and what he is trying to create you will have your hands tired behind your back which Bailey did unfortunately.

I think they call that revisionism

    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.

    TRAINING: Sunday 7th April 2024

    Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin ventured down in the rain to Gosch's Paddock for the Demon Family Series April School Holiday Open Training session. Not such a good morning, weather wise. As I arrived, it starting raining, settled into watching some Victory players have a kick around. The MFC squad come out as the rain abated, they had wide smiles as the walked down the roped corridor. Plenty of joy from the supporters towards them, kids everywhere, maybe about 500 to a 1000 of us.
