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 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.


    Thank you for your continued support & understanding. Go Dees.

I'm just too emotionally invested in this club that games like this absolutely suck every ounce of happiness out of me.
This ridiculousness of handballing to teammates when they are in no position to receive it just has to stop. It cost us the game today - particularly in that first qtr.
Just gut wrenching. Another opportunity lost.

Geez that stings! 

Can't expect to win many games when we bring the intensity we did in the first quarter. 

We are a 3/4 team at the minute. 

I think the Kennedy Harris and bugg careers at the mfc might be just about over. 

Seriously even jack Trengove with his speed issues would offer far more than either of those two

Another wasted year, another year with no finals.

Seriously over this club. We have not learn't a thing from last year and continue to just drop close games. 

Pretenders is all we are.

Just so frustrated. All the momentum killed off by horrible decision making, a dangerous addiction to unnecessary handball, and being annihilated in the air.

I usually leave my first review of the seaeon until round 8 but that loss has got under my skin. 

I agree with many others that JKH and Hannan are not AFL standard. We must leave behind a reliance on fill-in VFL standard players. That era must end now. 

I don't understand OMac. 1st half he cost us goals, 2nd half almost saved the game. I don't understand Frost - all the dare and dash in the world but his kicking is ..... I don't know how to describe it. 

Oliver - you are a gun but you are allowed to kick. 

Viney - very well done.

Handballing to a stationary target remains a deeply entrenched problem. It emerged late in the Daniher era and we haave never shaken it off. Today was the worst it has been for a while. 

St. Kilda are winning these games, we continue to lose them. 

I hate being a Melbourne supporter.

Can't see us competing for the 8 now. You've got to be able to win games where you're expected to get the job done.

I like our competitiveness but we just have zero leaders when we need them. Recruiting them hasn't really helped - which I suspect is the reason Viney was made co-captain. We need that next generation to come on as leaders and they just haven't at the start of the season. They will, but it's frustrating to watch.

Big mental challenge for the group coming up. Could go either way. I hope some leaders emerge.

Were were not good enough today; simple as that really.  Our 1st half was a disgrace and you cant win at this level playing one good qtr.

Sick of these bastards. I hate the fact that we need to wait for their good players to retire before we will get the best of them.

When the line ups appeared on the screen before the game started I thought that we would be in trouble.

Fkn Burgoyne and Roughead put on a clinc.

Also sick of game day thread d!ckheads writing us off early. Go [censored] off and support a [censored] bandwagon club like Richmond, you will find like minded souls there.

Just now, Dr. Gonzo said:

Another one we "should" have won

What was with the [censored] farting around at the end? Get it in there ffs

Yeah Lewis took a while to kick, + farting around with it could have been in the 50 with a lot more time instead we enter with 10 seconds on the clock!

    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
