Discussion on recent allegations about the use of illicit drugs in football is forbidden

    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.


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

We still missed 3 easy goals in this quarter at least that would have iced the game. Very poor kicking loses you games!

Agreed.  How good is that going to be if we kick better over 4 quarters?

No worries HB.

The first principle of leadership is to lead by example. The 2 highest rated Melbourne players on the AFL Player Ratings - and the two guys who put their bodies on the line for the club every weeek - are Jack Viney and Nathan Jones the co-captains. Hence my view that leadership is not an issue.

And I suspect the second principle (if there is one) is that when things start to go wrong, have someone who knows how to retrieve the situation take charge.  Not much need for leaders when it's all going well but when the chips are down, someone needs to take charge.  Leadership is a trainable skill but it's not obvious to me that there's much trainng taking place.  It is not sufficient to merely be an excellent practitioner of the game, leadership is something more.

It might also help when 'leading' that as a Captain you dont keep kicking it down the throat of the opposition.  I think  some others thought this was what you did afterwards !! :rolleyes:

Thought Salem could've done something special with his elite foot, in that final inside 50 entry.

Capped off a poor game from him.

Tough. He's been pretty good this year and would've had to deliver a precision pass amongst a plethora of brown and gold jumpers

I'm surprised you gave his post air time, Doc.

I'm a Salem fan, but he was terrible last week and as BBP said, capped off his terrible day in this play. On another day I would back Christian's left foot to find someone. He's a beautiful kick and very clever player.

Still, hoping he can bounce back this week. If Salem can reach A grade status (he has the tools), he will be that extra piece that elevates our midfield to something bloody special.

Just got back from SA and watched the replay. The bottom line is that apart from Quarter 1 the Demons were the better side.

So why did they lose?

As usual, multi turnovers. Especially in the first half. How do you cure this? Winning games, in the end....


Hibberd played his guts out.

The general positiveness of our game after the first quarter.

Mr Frost.



Demonland armchair critics.

I mention this because JKH was not the disaster case as portrayed by the sad sacks who fester on Demonland.

Hannan just needs a confidence boost.

Wagner was first game back. He will get much better.

The Demons are playing good football despite horrendous injuries.

Tom Mac D is obviously feeling the pinch of substituting as a ruckman.

What needs to happen:

Out Mr Buggah, in Clark Kent.

There's not much in reserve at the moment.

The best lineup:

Jetta  T.Macdonald Hibberd

Hunt Frost Lewis

Oliver Viney Stretch

Kent Watts Vandenberg

Garlett Hogan Petracca

Gawn Tyson Jones

Brayshaw, Pedersen,Vince, Salem

Emergencies: Oscar, both Smiths, Weidemann, Harmes, Wagner.

I put it to you that it's in that Emergency list that we'll find the real future.


As of 14 minutes into the last quarter against the number one team on their home ground much of what I wrote above sounds true to me. Let's revisit after the 32 minute mark.

    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.
