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!!!

A bloke here at Daintree Pub said he heard on the radio up here that Frawley wanted a transfer back to Melbourne after being dropped for today's game, but I said we didn't want him and we didn't need him.

Eventually got home. Well done to all those who managed the magical mystery tour on the Lilydale and Belgrave lines.

Probably cost quite a few extra patrons.

Was initially happy to be there to see the Weeds first goal, but Big Max was in a world of his own.

Just got better and better, the combined midfield effort was relentless.

Viney. Jonesy,Tyson  and Oliver fantastic.

Reckon we should have won by more as we had a couple of real clangers.

Just a great day at the footy.

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....

I agree he did enough but so did the Weed and Hogan has to come in.  So Pedo out for mine

Hawthorn posters on BigFooty are incensed about the umpiring bias in Melbourne's favour.

This is why I try to avoid commenting on umpiring, or let it affect me too much either during games or after.  We watch everything through biased eyes, it causes us to only see the poor decisions that go against us.

Sam Mitchell spends the whole game sooking to the umpires so it's no surprise that the supporters pick up his bad habits.

There is a simple answer to this Nasher.

Winners  are griners and Hawks can winge all night.

They got done ha ha.

It's still frustrating to look back on matches that we should have could have won and how we could be in the 8. Losing to essendon, wc and if that kick from bugg went straight to stretch against nth and if we could have beaten the saints. Anyway at least this season has provided some enjoyable wins. I guess you want to earn your spot int he 8 and not just fallin to be thrashed. 

It's great people are now noticing Maxy. People are saying he has to be the All Australian ruckman. Looking at the highlights Dwayne said he wants to grow a beard. But at the start of the yr Max stated he wanted to be up with the top ruckman in the comp. But I loved how after he kicked his goal he grabbed his jumper and looked to the crowd. He just loves the dees. 

Also I enjoyed Frost's dont argue on Hodge.

For those who had a read of the "what I will do it we beat the horks" thread.

Ding said he would "buy a membership" if we won.

Just received  a call from our life giver, to advise that Ding would like everyone to know that he has purchased a membership tonight. 

The win that keeps on giving.

What a win. 

It's not just beating the ladder-leaders who were undefeated for the last two months. It's the way we played. We played four quarters of exceptional quality, high intensity football that made us look like a proper, established team.

A full, 22-man effort today, with unbelievable performances from Gawn, Tyson, Viney, Jones, Watts.

I hope those who questioned, before today, whether we have improved in 2016 can now see it. For praha, surely this is the turning of the corner.

Was enough force to rock Watts' head back and he might get a week for it hopefully. He's been dishing out cheap shots his whole career and is one of the most cowardly gutless cheats to play the game in my lifetime. Nut punch to Daniel Kerr, repeated corkies against players who he knew who just couldn't beat fairly. Sam Mitchell is undeniably a sh*t bloke.

I want to like this but have apparently met my quota for the day so will have time quote instead :P

    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.
