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.

Such a 50/50 game for mine.

Jeffy will have is work cut out with Docherty who is in sublime form. I see this as the most important match up today because I reckon Garlett will need to put at least 3 goals on the scoreboard for us to be a chance. I think it was the Rd 2 game that Jeffy chased down Docherty in the F50 and kicked a snag with the resulting HTB decision - more of that please.

Gibbs also concerns me. Accumulates ball, uses it well and hits the scoreboard... Need a tag on Gibbs but not sure who gets that job.

Trying to pick winners this season has completely done my head in, so I'm going with my heart today.  Dees by a skinny margin and sitting 4th spot at the end of the weekend.  How nice would that be?

Would be nice to pot Tigres out of 4th spot wouldnt it...

I suspect Melksham will go to Docherty and Vince to Gibbs.

Gees there's some anxiety on here today. I'm sorry. I thought this was a SUPPORTERS forum ?

Grow a sack some of you naysayers.

Go The Dees! 

Without varying opinions I would find this site very boring.

I know, I'm just teasing. I just feel like the purveying mood around here is fear.

We've been really competitive for 95% of the season. I've got no reason to suspect we won't today.

Carlton traditionally play a very defensive game.

I went to the Docklands and watched their upset win against GWS. Their defence sits back and just picked off the run and carry of the Giants. This then allowed them to quickly counter attack through unmarked men and then take a mark in the forward line.

Our normal game plan does not work well against this style so I trust that Goodwin has some tricks up his sleeve. One obvious ploy is to leave a quick mobile tall near the forward line to counter balance the defensive line. I'm sure there are others.

Not how I would look at it. GWS are hopeless at putting pressure on the counter attack from their forward 50. We are one of the best at that so Carlton shouldn't find it anywhere near as easy as they did against the Giants.

Go Dees.

The cards are unsettled today, my friends. The minor arcana hint at difficulties with opposing forces, and the revealing of the Chariot was perplexing, to say the least. The adjacency of the Hanged Man and The World could suggest a fast, open game but, then again, when The Magician appeared, could it imply a slog, with too many defensive roles for an attractive game.

Dees by 13 points.

Big game today...Really it is

prepare them right Simon, it's what a good coach does. 

Smack them hard in the first quarter, then dictate the game. 

Carlscum are well coached kids, we have no excuse now that Garlett Gawn and Jesse are out there

I think you should sit out the next pass around of any spliff.

    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

    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
