  • 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.

I wonder how many other commentators beside Dennis C think along similar lines but are too scared for their jobs and access to say anything.  Maybe this may open the floodgates. (OK, a trickle)

Dunno what's happened to you this year but Santa must have stuck a better brand of port in your stocking than you're accustomed too. Go Santa!

Cue Slobbo and one or two others slamming Dennis and trotting out the usual arguments about how it's against Man and God and the Easter bunny to have anything other than EFC and CFC on Anzac Day.

I hope it's an embarrassment this year. Over by 1/4 time and the ground mostly empty by 3/4 time, EFC fans having left at half time and CFC supporters shortly afterwards out of boredom.

Well as it happens Slobbo wrote a rather bizarre ( even by his efforts ) in Sat Jun.Tis sitting at bottom of the bunny hutch just presently so I won't retrieve it but there were a few backhanders there for Gil and Co.

Strange times.

Difference between afl And the extremely corrupt organization that is fifa.

When 5 north Korean women's players tested positive they booted the whole country from the womens world cup.

The afl gave their team 10 top ups, prime time, refused to strip individuals of honours and no doubt will allow them a high pick.

 

only the AFL could make fifa look good

Don't forget the inevitable first band compo for every free agent that abandons their sinking ship, despite being artificially lowered to the ladder floor due to drug cheating sanctions. Laughable.

Corrections:

Not sad because he knows he is right

Not human being because true humans have consciences 

He is just trying to bring others down with him

Maybe he and Dank will go on the footy club speaking circuit and be able to exonerate the players whilst doing so.

Takes full responsibility James and Bomber players!!!

Nice to see her in sombre black for the occasion.

Good on her and I actually hope WADA view it rationally.    I actually dont think she was trying to be cute about taking a supplement at the edge... in actuality the list changed on her.  But, shes taken it on board and puts her hand up.  WOW.. Im really impressed to tell the truth. Shes everything essendon  ISNT

I appreciate the point you've made but I can't help wondering whether FIFA would have been so bold if it had been a major European country rather than a medieval friendless fiefdom.

Yes she did admit her fault, albeit, sugar coated and made excuses. I don't believe for one second she has been taking meldonium for an illness for the last 10 years. 

Pushing the limits, sounds too familiar. A drug cheat is a drug cheat and I have no sympathy.

    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
