  • 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.

Oh No!

Give your vintage, old dee, I knew you'd struggle the most widely with this apparition.

Convinced myself that Toumpas could play.

Said nice things about Mitch Clark.

Argued that Sylvia would come good.

Said Stefan Martin would never be a footballers' bootlace.

Believed Schwabby's whiteboard Wednesdays.

Convinced myself that Liam Jurrah was a clean-cut tribal elder that would be AFL's greatest story.

Sounds like you were very much a victim of Demonland group think at the time.

I was convinced Austin Wonnamirri was going to be the second coming of the wizard....

The much touted Schwabian Era Melbourne Brotherhood turned out to be a great fraud. Nev Jetta the one most least likely out of that lot is the only one to make it.

I was once convinced Roos was going to deliver us a premiership like he did the Swans, Jackson was going to take us permanently out of debt and transform us into a power club and that Hogan and Petracca would become top ten players of the competition and play in multiple Demon premierships.

Seriously delusional.

i confess i have never attempted karaoke (or hari kiri for that matter)

It's hara kiri (腹切り= literally stomach cutting).

It's kind of redundant to say that really. If you had attempted it, you wouldn't be here to report about the experience.

Move outside of Borewood and you too will learn about these things.

Towards the end of his first season, I told my mates Cale Morton would win a brownlow one day.

Beat that!!

needless to say i had to find new mates

I also keep believing the many re-builds we have had will work

also, im still cut about Scully leaving even though he is an average player

man, its good to get all that off my chest!

You could argue you were close with Morton. His best mate and fellow skinny kid who lived next door got the Brownlow. Edited by america de cali

I moved from Victoria to Queensland in 2006, it was the last time the MFC played finals. I take full responsibility for the club becoming a mess after my departure.

To make amends, I've decided to move back to Victoria at the start of 2016. History will show that when my postcode starts with a "3", we generally make finals. You're welcome.

Ugh, how about this thread I created in 2013 about how I felt hopeful after watching a Mark Neeld press conference.

A MARK NEELD press conference.

http://demonland.com/forums/index.php?/topic/34173-hope-i-got-it-back/

It's like waking up in the middle of the night with an embarrassing memory from high school. You still cringe.

I still think we can win the '87 Premiership, every-time, prior to re-watching the Preliminary final match.

I just watched that game, too....

Wow, footy's changed! No accountability, no system, no structure...

We were damned good that day, but the Swans' players had zero accountability for their opponent.

Where do you need to move for us to win the flag? I'll get on realestate dot com for you.

    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. 😢
