  • 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.

Watching the dogs v north game and Seeing th Bont made me ask did we have the chance to draft him. 

Evidently we did if we had not have done the Dom and Salem thing.

With benefit of hindsight, what would we do now? What we did? Take Kelly? Take the Bont?

For mine, we do what we did. I say this in the hope that Christian gets over his poor run of luck and is that classy player we need, Yze style!

108 point lead to the Crows at 3/4 time.

Leppa's farewell tour of Australia continues on.

Voss, Leppa......

For sure their next coach will be Akermanis, Simon Black or Matthew Lappin.

A few rubbish low scores this week, the week after Roos said teams are getting tired and the footy gets a bit uglier. 

Meanwhile the youngest team we've put out beat the reigning premier and posted the 2nd highest score of the round thius far. 

Getting too easy this caper.

Poor sportsmanship on his part I thought, especially when he said 'they were off a little and we were on a little'. 

Anyone else would say they were beaten by a better side, on the day.

Can't barrack for the them but hope Carlton wins so we can stay ahead of Saints on the ladder! 

Would be great to finish above them at 9th or 10th...a real springboard for 2017.

Why aren't the Drug Cheats playing down at Geelong? This should be their 186, instead they're playing in Melbourne.

When the fixture was done the CAS result hadn't been handed down.

However, this was the year to send Carlton down the highway, after their disaster last year. I'd be sending them there next year. It's only fair. Instead, Carlton get saved whilst the Dogs, finalists last year, have to go down there.

I'd love to see Carlton and/or Richmond playing in Geelong next year. It's time, and it's fair.

Nigel ? Both from Chiltern, but Matthew played for the Blues and Saints.

Was just reading this: http://www.afl.com.au/news/2016-08-06/forget-fourthorn-swans-set-to-soar and 15 of 18 coaches thought that Ess can make the finals next year.

The media view is that the returning 12 will automatically lift them back into contention in  2017 and it seems most coaches share that view.  But they don't have a decent ruckman, their key forward is a youngster, no forward line to speak of, Hurley is a swingman but can't play both ends of the ground, they have only a handful of on-ballers etc.

Even when some or all the12 come back they will need to settle into the team, get their touch back, learn game plan etc.  I think teams can cope with one or two players coming back after a year out but not with 6-12!

I see them being several years away from playing finals but obviously I'm missing something the coaches can see.

    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
