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.

No problem with that, but do you think it should be forced on all people who want to watch the replay, especially those who don't support the Pies? All replays are listed as the Ed version.

Fox Footy are idiots.

I recorded the replay on Sunday morning at 10.30. I couldn't believe it when I got big head Ed and some other collingwood circus clowns doing the replay. I'm going to complain to foxtel, I don't pay all that money to listen to those biased clowns. Also i'm going to ring our club to see if they can influence foxtel and the AFL to stop it happening in the future.

Just watching the Fox replay now.

Absolutely disgusting commentary by Eddie, Shaw and that non-entity 'comedian' ?Strauney??

Just plain barracking - we, we ,we, they, they, they !!!!

Ruins any opportunity to fully enjoy the victory.

What a disgrace.

PS: still in first quarter - will maybe enjoy their grief at the end.

Yes and when Jetta took that wonderful mark early in the game they didn't even bother to name him. Thick edge of the wedge having those clowns on all the replays.

Imagine if we got MCC members to do the commentary. They wouldn't know any of the players names. "Number 10 kicks it to Number 1etcre painful.

What planet are you from sport? You are more biased than Ed, however your bias seems to stem from envy or insecurity. MCC members who go to home and away matches are as passionate and informed as any other members (and include many Demonlanders). There are few 'MCC members' who don't know Brayshaw or the Hulk, even the Collingwood supporters amongst them!

Anyone can start a podcast and put it live to air.

I will be happy to get one organised for 2016 .

We could have Melbourne centric commentators but we don't necessarily need a "big" name ,in fact it would be better if we didn't.

The one I envisage will be for adults only, of course,and actually be funny and informative.

Umpire abuse allowed,swearing allowed,insults allowed.i.e comedy allowed.

I will be drawing from Demonland for "talent" and yes,I use the word loosely.

The only reason I'm enjoying this disgusting, pathetic, unprofessional, bias, one-sided commentary is because I know we win this game

It is an absolute disgrace that they let Eddie commentate Collingwood games.

I pay so much money for Foxtel so I can listen to this jackass. It's sickening

I can't believe this is allowed, it's actually making a mockery of the game

Can't wait to hear him explode later when we win!

It was a "press red" option to listen to an intentionally biased all-Collingwood commentary (Ed, Shaw et al). The actual game was called by Hudson, with Derm and Roo adding their 2c.

For some stupid reason Fox are playing the novelty commentary instead of the proper one for all the replays.

Hudson, Derm and Co during the game were throwing jibes at the Collingwood commentary team with occasional camera crossovers at key negative points for Collingwood on Eddy and his other none too joyous lackies. Perhaps the producer switched commentary for the replay to rub it in further?

Talking about bias. It was evident in the official commentary that Dermott Brereton absolutely loves Max Gawn. Never heard him praise a player so much. Definitely in the McGuire loves Buckley mould.

I don't mind Derm. He does dribble a lot, but from time to time does have points of interest to raise. He knows the game I think, you just need to see through the waffle that intersperses it.

I think Derm's theory is that if you keep talking you're bound to get something right...eventually

I have emailed FOXTEL with my complaint.

The really sad thing is that I feel that the three clowns in the box actually thought that they were being funny !!

Derm prob knows that Gawn is signing with the Hawks next season!

I have just rang Foxtel to make a complaint about Ed commentating on the replays.

Got a charming young lad who sympathised with my plight.

Was told to Email Feedback@fox sport.com.au and all feedback will be replied to or

go to their facebook page....Foxsport/aus.....If many people complain...they will change it.

I to wanted to keep this taped game but will be ditching it if this afternoons replay is still the Eddie version

Thanks for that. I have just emailed them

The only reason I have Foxtel is for the footy. Amazingly rude of them to to put a Collingwood commentary over a Melbourne win.

I just went onto their Facebook page and there are a few people complaining. I will be watching at 5.00pm to see if the replay has changed. Foxfooty is the reason I have foxtel too. We shouldn't have to put up with this crap. How many Collingwood supporters would want to watch any replay of the game?....None I would think.

I also fell for that and the worst part was they should have had warnings like the hideous pictures on cigarette packages. It was terrible and the saddest part was that Eddies commentary wasn't much different to what he usual serves up during Collingwood games

Could not agree more - funny to see Ed and Co doing a game they no doubt thought was a certain win - but I, to, also want to record the game with the proper commentary - well as proper as we can get.

There is at least one more Foxtel replay of the game this week - we should lobby them to ensure that we get the non Eddie commentary - it might be a novelty for the execs at the network but it makes watching the replay a PITA.

Might not work this time, but hopefully will make an impact for next time.

Due to committments with my girlfirends family all weekend, I missed all my favourite sports.
The replay I got to watch until 12:30 sunday made the Family lunch all the more sour.
fuming at life. I need another weekend

I bet the W@nker Fox Footy execs think Fat Eddie is so funny so we'll replay him and his 3 loser idiots 4 times

I'm still keeping the replay to watch over summer and think back how we put those mongrels out of the finals race (barring a miracle)

I'll just watch it with the sound turned down and the bonus is you don't get Dermott either!!!

After all,it's all about SEEING how we beat them and who played well,not hearing what we're seeing.

I like Peter Helliar, and the Project has its moment of grandiose grandstanding but at least they attempt to discuss matters that matter. Most shows we watch don't bother, or those that should spend their time doing whatever it is that 60 Minutes are doing. I don't really know how to describe it - 'faux journalism'?

Different strokes, hey?

I watched the last quarter and a half of the Press Red replay on Foxtel yesterday and loved it. It was gold when all they could do each time we had a shot for goal was go 'miss...miss'.

I did also watch the full replay with the normal commentary on AFL TV last night. There's a lot of love for Jesse, Maxy and Angus Brayshaw from the commentators. Vanders gets the big tick too.

I get that but why the [censored] would they put that on the replay, given we won.

It's made watching the replay impossible.

Hope like hell this afternoon's replay that I'm recording is better!

    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.
