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.

The Rory Sloane article in The Age gave me a moment of sympathy for Adelaide. But only a moment. Over the years we have been back-doored more than once losing top-line players when were in a high ladder position. We could have done with a Healey, a Thompson, a Farmer, even a Barassi  over many a suffering season. So who cares if Jake Lever comes our way and helps to break this decades long pattern of losing top players when it counts. Perhaps it is a sign of the smartness of our new administrators that this failure has finally been recognised and acted upon.

As they said at Villers Bretonneux, "Do not forget Australia" 

And at Melbourne we should say "Do not feel sorry for Adelaide."

I have a strange and disturbing feeling that he may eventually turn up at Collingwood.

Rory and Eddie of course will say that they did not have any discussions until after the end of the footy season and his contract with the Crows.

Arctin, the God of Player Movements, has looked upon us with benevolence in recent years. A few prayers might have him send Sloane our way.

As opposed to Stormbung, the evil God of the End of Season Draft (and of High Priced Chips), who afflicted us with curse after curse for a number of years.

This year we have sacrificed Jack Watts to Nar-bing, the God of Ladder Position, to see if we can rise up into the finals. Here's hoping!

Go Nar-bing!

Go Demons!

Don't think it's your iPad. I'm on a PC with Windows 10 and the ability to edit seems to have disappeared for me, too.

 

And now it's back...

Now that is strange it has disappeared from my PC and just checked it is back on my iPad.

Too hard for a mere Dees supporter to figure out.

I am still struggling with a 53 year drought!

It's kind of funny.  These days Collingwood is looking like one of the worst clubs in the league for player development.  Almost every quality player in their side was poached from another team.

They have been very quiet lately, which makes me suspicious. 

Eddie spends much of his time plotting and thinking of the next deal, so something is cooking!

And he and Buckley need to pull something out for the fire next season or good night nurse.

Tom Lynch (GCS) has been the go-to rumour for all things Collingwood, and Sloane for St Kilda.

Now that the Sun of God has arisen at Jeelong and is preaching his low paid reincarnation and thankfulness, its time that us mere mortals, atheists and doubters just stood back and behold the wonder of the all Australian Coach C Scott and his disciples Selwood and Dangerfield distribute the bread and fishes.

That they prey pray at their own home town citadel so often is almost unbelievable !

    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
