Posting Unsubstantiated Rumours on this Website is Strictly Forbidden
  • 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.

This was inevitable.   Manufactured garbage.  Ironic that that they are de-throning the COLA Swans.

You don't understand. This is good for us. Sure, we won't see a Premiership in my lifetime but I'm assured by Mike Fitzpatrick that it's all for the best. And if  or when they win the Premiership they will then get access to the best junior player in the land pre - draft. But again, that's all for the best. And in 2018 they will again have access to the best players in the land. It's only right.

I listened to Fitzpatrick for about 5 minutes on 774 pre game before I had to spew up. 

Just recovering. That guy I will hate for the rest of my days as a destroyer of the game. Started talking GDP and numbers etc.

What an arrogant piece of work. Get someone in there who cares about the fans not numbers.

Please Deespicable, he's the game's saviour. I won't let you blaspheme.

Once again though. No excuses for The MFC next year. 

No reason why young kids cannot play finals if they are prepared right. 

Hang on, WYL. GWS are approximately 2-3 seasons ahead of us in development. Most of their guys are approaching 100 games. They're in the perfect age bracket. Most of our guys are approaching 40 games. It's okay to demand high standards, but it's also important to be realistic.

wow that was some win. The young players weren't overawed at all by the occasion. Now Sydney have to host tonight winner. Geez I hope its the crows and they get through. 

Never seen so much orange, guess all there fans showed up. But they now get to play at spotless that holds 24,000. Geez feel for the away team trying to go. 

I know GWS are in a home prelim but I just feel that a hawthorn or the doggies could knock them off. Yes I know they thrashed the hawks previously but I think they could win. Maybe im just hoping. Geez wouldnt a gws/cats GF be interesting. With Stevie J and all. But a GF I wouldn't really want to see. 

Anyway come on crows tonight. Make us see Brad Scott get angry and send those kangas off with a loss.

Mate our development has to get better otherwise we will fall again. 

That is the harsh reality. 

We have to make the jump the Bulldogs made last year, when we all thought they would be bottom 4.

I would agree up until the point that the umpires stepped in to make sure GWS kicked away. 

Oh man the swans didn't stand a chance after halftime. I don't necessarily think it was solely due to the umpires, but they just couldn't hit the scoreboard. I don't actually think they were that much worse otherwise

Whatever the Blues received for Betts, they were robbed blind. Kudos Malthouse.

Funnily enough, they didn't receive compensation....because they already signed Dale Thomas as a free agent.

Again, kudos Malthouse

Bartlett was the best goal kicking rover I have seen but Betts is right up there next to him. Watching him read the play is a pure delight. 

And Lindsay Thomas gets a free kick from a deliberate free kick. Oh, the irony!

How good is Eddie? We LOL at Malthouse for giving us Garlett for free, but that's got nothing on what Adelaide got.  Apparently Betts didn't really want to go but the difference in salaries being offered made it a no-brainer.  Gee you'd be angry if you were a Carlton fan.

If Adelaide continue to get it done then all results have gone the way I wanted this in finals week 1.  So far so good.

    TRAINING: Saturday 2nd March 2024

    On the eve of the 2024 Season I ventured down to Gosch's Paddock for one of the final preseason training session before we head up to Sydney to take on the Swans. Here are my observations from the training session. The session was light and despite it being a Saturday was akin to a Monday/Tuesday session following a regular season weekend match as we played on Wednesday night and the boys had a couple of days off after the Practice Match prior to the season proper. Main Squad: May,

    ROUND ZERO by Whispering Jack

    The Coodabeen Champions have called it a day after more than forty years on various radio stations across Melbourne. When the lads chose the theme from the spaghetti western "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" as their signature tune, the game was uncomplicated with little time for scientific strategy. Summertime was for easy living and games of cricket, footy teams assembled in February, played practice matches in March and the season opened in mid-April. In their time, the Coodabeens saw changes

    TRAINING: Tuesday 27th February 2024

    I headed down to Gosch’s Paddock this morning for the Captain’s Run in the lead up to tomorrow night’s practice match against the Blues.  The squad that took the field was indicative of the lineup for that match at Ikon Park.  Likely Selections based on the groupings of players at the Captain's Run today at Gosch's Paddock.

    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
