  • 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.


Dusty ... Old Man to Be Deported?

Fathers should be role models for their sons. However having seen that inglorious photo one see that this is not always possible and can understand how difficult it would be for his son to ring him up and say "dad, can you give me any good advice as to how I can best conduct myself in public?"  

I think the problem is that he has taken his fathers advice!

This may come as a shock Ernest but I have not read  all of your books  as they are so depressing I have stopped trying.

The MFC of the last 50 years has provided me with all the depression I can handle.

Can you make a come back and write something cheerful?

That's interesting OD, I do not find them depressing but rather I find readers reaction very much imitates their own mood state. If you want to read something a little lighter then I recommend my 1926  work The Sun Also Rises, later published in England as Fiesta, a title that I did not like. If you do not like that one, then find another author as I am not your man. Remember when reading my work, it's not what I have written but what lies beneath. The words are just the tip of the iceberg so to speak, and that two thirds lie beneath the surface. So perhaps OD you need to tackle your own demons!                                         However I can recommend a good rum if you wish.

I note that the former incessant chatter on Demonland that we should have drafted, or at least interviewed, Dustin Martin seems to have stopped. I wonder why? 

I have no idea why LDC can you fill me in?

To be fair, the information I was told about Dusty's father before he was drafted was completely wrong. I was told he was with the Comancheros.

Now there is a lesson LDC never believe everything you are told.

"Well, son, first thing is, keep yer car in good nick. Don't give the coppers no excuse to pull yer over. if yer do get pulled over, don't say nuffink. Second thing, don't carry a knife or a gun on yer. Yer don't need 'em. We've got people to do that for yer. An' if they take yer down the station, try to get word to one of "our" coppers. An' get rid o' them chopsticks. They'll get yer inta trouble one day."

Dusty is a fine footballer.  Obviously he has some conflicting concepts in his mind,  but he looks to me like he is working his way thru those slowly.  To me he is a good person.  Maturing amongst peers healthier than he would have been exposed to when young.

If Dustin Martin was not a footballer he would be on a plane as well.  Happy to see Australia get rid of these scumbags and out of our way.  They add nothing to society and give others grief in life!!!

Anybody who has a tattoo above the shoulders is dead from the neck up...

good riddance.

Well, Martin is probably short for Martinez, and I don't know about you, but I for one am sick of illegal Mexican immigrants taking the place of homegrown Aussie players on AFL lists. 

Aussie rules for Aussies I say!

I heard a Richmond official on SEN this morning saying Dustin was at a low ebb over this and they were helping him through this period.

Is there ever a period that they are not helping him through?

He must consume more of their time than the over 39 on their list.

That's actually pretty funny old Dee. Could you imagine being another player on the list going through an off field drama? ''I know your wife's left you, it's just that our welfare team are all flying to Christchurch with Dustin to meet his Dad. You'll be right."

    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

    Clayton Oliver was integrated back into the main training group today for the first time in 2024 after completing a 2km time trial. FriendlyFellow, a new Demonland Trackwatcher hit Gosch's Paddock on a hot and windy morning to bring you his observations of the session.
