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.

That is one of the worst generalisations I've ever heard on here. That's saying something. I'll presume that you have chosen your words poorly as opposed to that being your attitude towards every supporter who isn't in reserved seats but insinuating everyone not in said seating requires in your eloquent terms 'a barrel of [censored]' is incredibly poor and likely a good example of why Melbourne supporters in general are seen as arrogant rich flogs amongst the other 

No I have not chosen my words poorly, I have an opinion, doesn't mean you have to agree or like

These days there seems more interest at games in drinking and watching the odds than actually watching the footy

Reason we went with reserved seats this year, got sick of supporters continually getting up to refill at the bar, no matter which area we were in

Saty your comment, "There must have bee reasons for them to act at the G " clearly assumes that crowd members were at fault and security personnel  were acting correctly. I don't know the details of the incident but my assumptions would be the opposite.

The training of  security personal is currently a joke. Essentially if you turn up everyday  to a course which you pay for through a private provider you get your ticket.

Have a look at the number of bashings, assaults and over the top responses from security people that have been reported in the media over the last year or two.

And what about that clown who was parading around the Bourke Street Mall with a handgun on his hip. He was unlicensed yet employed by a security company.

In general ( and I will admit that) they are cardboard cops and wannabes - disgraceful.

It is not that crowd members were at fault but obviously security were reacting or overreacting to something

I have worked in the Hospitality industry and know that some of the 'security' leaves a lot to be desired, but also there are some who think it 'humorous' to see how far they can push them

As far as the Metro etc, don't fare evade

Slightly off topic, but seriously what use are those "security officers" at the entrance gates?

At the Carlton game it meant a 10-15 minute wait in a queue, and then and on Saturday a cursory wave with a wand, not caring that I had pockets full of keys, money, radio, and who knows what - they certainly wouldn't have the slightest clue had i taken in a small nuke!!

A total tokenistic waste of time unless they are going to do it properly, like at an airport, which would lead to interminable lineups.

It's not the size of the nuke that matters, but what you do with it.

Fair dinkum Saty that is dead set funny! The reason I enjoy my reserved seat is because I can get up and go to the boozer whenever I like and know my seat is safe.

The lady who has been sitting next to me for several years may disagree because I have spilt beer over her and her kids a few times.

May I suggest you sit in the Muslim prayer room.It is usually unoccupied unless I have just been in there to pull a cone.

Alcohol is forbidden there for some reason.

About a decade ago my mates and i bought a few cans into kardinia park in our pockets. When i sat down a can got pearced on the seat and squirted out like a super soaker on the poor kid in front of me. Direct spray all over his face.

I felt terrible about it. The kids old man handlded it as best you could hope for.

Luckily for me no meat head security around. I deserved to be thrown out.

Don't feel too bad Wrecker,

most kids in Geelong are baptised with a can of beer or a UDL if they are upper class.

I grew up in the 60's 70's and was in the military, so I had my fair share of manly drinking , but I grew out of needing a beer or twelve to actually enjoy something

Although I still enjoy 2 or 3 ASAHI with a meal

Just feel it seems to be taken too far these days

I think there should be a safe space for people who don't want to hear swears or jokes.

Also ,the general football public would be much more attractive if some of the uglier patrons were forced to wear hijabs.

On this basis the Anzac Day match would look like an Arab convention. lol

But in your day it was OK.

Asahi is such a metrosexual beer- I'm going to ask Max to run through you at training .

I expect our army to be drinking xxxx or something tougher than that.

Just back from the Barcelona V Juventus game and I don't think we have anything on the security here. How would we react if we had policemen ready with riot gear protecting the players race. 

Just a few comparisons to some of our games this year:

Barca and Juventus players must have gone to the Cripps acting school

Barca and Juventus have been watching replays of our Geelong game for goal kicking tips (score 0-0 after numerous attempts

I was warned to stay clear of the Juventus supporters if they lost. I would have known who they were -they were in black and white. Highlight of the night was 85,000 Barca supporters singing " Su la mafia" to the 10,000 Juventus supporters. 

I did miss Robbos Haymes paints speckies at half time. Absolutely nothing at half time but some very good music.

These days with alcohol there seems to be a lack of control or the need to over indulge

Example we had the chance to have a beer at Xmas whilst we were working

Of course a couple of young idiots took it too far, can't see it happening again any time soon

We drank but didn't feel the need to attack anyone or be boorish, we had a good time

Drink of choice during military was XXXX and Gilbey's Gin

Nothing wrong with ASAHI or Tiger better than some of the so called boutique beers these days, although don't mind McCracken if it is on tap

The security inside in the g is a joke. Young, clueless guys, with no social skills who don't have a clue how to manage any sort of interaction with a patron. Which is unfortunate seeing that is their role. 

I'm loud and expressive but NEVER swear, abuse players or umpires and don't have any conflict with other fans (i won't say NEVER on that last point but I honestly i can't remember the last time i had any real argument at the footy, aprt from with my mates - no doubt some opposition fans are occasionally irked by my enthusiasm for the dees, but not once in 40 odd years of going to the footy has anyone complained to security about me ).  

I sit at the top of the Ponsford on and for some games there are bugger all people. I hate it when that is the case because i sit near the stairs and invariably there are several 'security guards' milling around me. One, because they are lazy and congregate in one area, two because there are bugger all people to bother with (why not redeploy them to an areas that does have fans in it) and three because of my vociferousness. Because i never cross any lines even they know they there is no need for them to do anything so they they often just stand around me. Sometimes i will ask them if there is a problem and they say no, no problem.

It irks me. ift feels as i f they are waiting for me to do something they can jump on me for. Which never happens. It doesn't happen when i sit in the same spot and there is any sort of crowd - even though i am just as loud, perhaps even louder.

You can't toke a cone Moon.

Please don't embarrass me online as well as in public.

The are about 1000  Melbourne FC teenagers across suburbia with bongs  next to the computer who are disgusted at your middle class attempt to appropriate stoner culture with your inner city trendy attempts to connect with the real people.

You pull a cone ,you toke a joint.

If we end up with Asahi as a BOJ sponsor I'll be forced to conclude that Saty is in fact Peter Jackson in highly elaborate disguise. Saty said he was looking for work around the time PJ came on board right?

Saty was initially employed as PJs   Hairdresser.

It was a bald move but it kept him busy .

From there he went on to handing out scarves ,which seems a natural progression in the absence of hair on our head,or colllective head,as he still is.

Saty then progressed to training reports and scooter detail.

Now he is moral compass and ex serviceman exemplar of sophistication.

And raconteur par excellence .

I don't discourage anyone to drink at the footy but I always encourage yoof to be cool and MFC yoof are all very sensible in my experience .I've never seen a rowdy mfc fan in my life.

The younger generation handle alcohol more sensibly now than ever before in my experience ,but then again,none of them can keep up with me so my judgement is somewhat  clouded.

    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
