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.


THE MOST AWESOME POST MATCH THREAD EVER!!!

With Dad in hospital and looking the worse for wear I decided to take mum in and get around the old fella. So glad I did as we got him out of bed for first time in a few weeks, sat him up and we listened to most of the match together while I got some decent sustenance into him.

 He's a Blues fan but also loosely followed the Demons through the Barrasi years and then when he went over to the Dark (navy blue) side! Even said he carried Ron's bag into Princess Park on his first day, Ron changing into full Carlton regalia to address the charges as fully fledged Blues captain/coach.

I couldn't wipe the smile off Dad's face when we hit the front in the last and went on with it and he even shed a tear of joy as we sung the song at the end.

To Mr Roos and the boys thank you for making today a special day for my dad. I wish I could have been there but it's still a day I will never forget. I salute you.

One small but very important step for the boys.... one meaningful leap for the Club and its long suffering supporters!

The Mighty Demons are back!!!

Also Jayden Hunt high fived me after the game. My life is now complete. 

Never wash that hand again. 

Well, that was the third game I've been to this year for three wins.  I'm pretty happy with that. 

Massive congratulations to King on his first 50 games, and to team Viney for their combined 300.  I don't think we could have asked for more from either of them today.

It was such  thrill to see the young guys dominating the midfield, and especially their kicking into the forward 50.  I don't remember the last time we had that many quality kicks delivered to our forwards.  It made such a difference from the usual high bomb to the square and obviously paid off as we kicked 17 goals 8 from 46 inside 50's.  That's as good a conversion rate as anyone in the league. 

I couldn't believe the blatant frees being missed by the umpires right from the beginning of the game.  Two of the Hawks' three first term goals were from clear umpiring blunders.  I'm waiting to see how Kennedy is going to try to spin those calls to make them seem legitimate, or indeed if he will just refuse to address them.  I was absolutely ropable at the game and so proud of the team for just sucking it up and beating the hell out of the Hawks anyway. 

Just an awesome win.

Hodge, Mitchell, Thug Lewis, cheat Rioli, and Third man up only Gibson...

...beaten by Oliver, Viney, Tyson, Jones, Gawn and Watts. 

The Rolling Stones were wrong - I can get satisfaction.

Surely Pederson has done enough now to hold his spot. He is that Leigh Brown type. Prefer seeing him pinch hit in the ruck instead of Watts. 

Would love to see Weid play a few more this season.

love that AVB, Brayshaw, Trac are all playing together. 

Max = man crush 

Viney = same as above

we are getting better, but still above the shoulders. Got to keep improving in the mind as much as physically during pre season.

Heard Clarko post match. I respect him, but no need to mention that Hawthorn "have dominated sides, including Melbourne for a long time".

i think he is trying to deflect attention from the side because they have probably been fortunate to be on top given so many close wins. This loss if analysed will show Hawks not unbeatable. The ladder is a lot closer now too. Regarding the Hawks....watch this space....

Nothin I'm just sic of hearing his dribble that he speaks about us and the demeaning and belittling way he talks. It really grates me tbh. 

He talks like we don't understand English!!!

We were probably a 7-8 goal, even more better side today. They never looked dangerous. And haven't really all year. They've normally won those games but we got on top and ran away. 

Those last 10 minutes, haven't seen something like that against a top 8 team let alone 1st since the Daniher years. I have fond memories of Trapper Johnston putting the final nail in the coffin against the Pies in 04 or 05. Today reminded me of that when Billy finished them off.  

Was a fun last quarter .

Mentioned during the match and also on Bigfooty,..... Afl number 1 Ruck/rover combination, Max Gawn/Tyson, number 2 Max Gawn/Viney, number 3 Gawn/Jones. Totally amazing if correct.

That would make Max the No 1 ruckman surely...

Great news - I had thought that I would have to listen to Deeerrrwayne when I gat to see the replay later, but you seem to be suggesting that I don't.

So Clarkson just used inexperience as an excuse for their loss today. The little person scrambling for excuses.

We need to get Pauline Hansen to give him her standard response: "Please explain"

Just saw replays on the 'incidents':

Don't think Rioli will go.  I don't know how they assess "high" - but I thought the contact with Oliver looked more like chest and the head throwback might have come from chin contact? I don't think there was a concussion risk with that shirtfront, I'd be happy with it if delivered by an MFC player.

The Mitchell one was piss poor and he should definitely get weeks.  Will probably be declared "low impact" which will probably reduce it unfortunately, but I can't see him avoiding a suspension.  He clearly, blatantly punched Watts in the face.

    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.
