  • 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.

There's nothing you can't love about watching West Coast play awfully on their own home ground. It's a lot harder when the umpires don't gift you the game.

Amazing that the Dogs have done so well with Stringer having absolutely no impact (until that goal) and the Bont quiet for more than a half.

A very well-deserved win.

They're a slick outfit the Doggies ... and their teamwork is immense.

They'll trouble whoever they play next Friday night

Feels a lot like West Coast has done a Melbourne with this one (except we obviously never do this in finals). Just feels a bit like they thought they had the win before they started playing. Selection error (dropping Jetta for a tall and then being cut up by the Dogs' run), some of their stars playing selfish football (it feels like a team vs 22 individuals).

Yep i agree. Dogs took them on from the first bounce. 

Great to hear Basil's commentary...

I love watching the West Coast midfielders duck their heads into tackles and then, when the umpire correctly refuses to pay a free for a high tackle, the midfielder has no idea what to do next.

The crowd know what to do though.

BOO BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOBOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Well aren't the Meth Coke huge pretenders.

Can't wait to hear Tim Gosage on SEN tomorrow morning. He was on today raving about Eagles and how they were super confident of tonight and going deep into finals.. Ox was all over him and asked him if he would be in tomorrow if Eagles lost

Caleb Daniel is a gun. Is so composed and doesn't waste a possession. 

Well done to Luke Beveridge. Never heard him complain about their constant injuries or use youth as an excuse for lack of effort. Hopefully Goodwin takes a leaf out of his book.

Hate to sound like a broken record but to all those who excused our last two games on the basis that we were young or tired.... have a look at what a "TEAM" can do.

They had every right after their incredibly bad run with injuries  and then ending up with the almost impossible finals assignment to say... we are too young and too tired but they played to their strengths and won easily.

Yes ... I am very jealous !!!

So so happy for the Dogs. At least there is one team in the finals that don't make me sick to my stomach.

They were fantastic tonight, and credit to them for not giving up despite their mounting injury list. Here's hoping they knock out Whorethon next week!

Well done Doggies!!  Its great to see the Weagles bomb out on their own dunghill. Particularly pleasing for me as a Victorian living in Perth.

Kennedy has not fired tonight which doesn't surprise as he has always been a down hill skier. Most of his goals have been against the lowly teams where he kicked a few bags. Hope the Doggies can repeat the dose on Geelong or Hawthorn next week.

    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.
