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.

I’m very excited about today. Love watching footy at the G.

As promised in last weeks thread I will be happily slotting my $100 into the Salvos tin.

Although it is nice to be heading to a game with finals secured, the ramifications of this game are massive for our group. I'm sure we'd want to have another crack at Geelong at the G week 1 instead of travelling to Spotless.

Geelong is top-heavy with a vulnerable inexperienced underbelly. GWS will use the bye as an opportunity to bring in experienced top-end talent Greene, Deledio, and Zac Williams. Not to mention being bolstered in confidence after defeating us two weeks prior. 

Goodwin's mantra has always been the side in the best form at the end of the year gives themselves the best chance, I hope we hit an undermanned GWS hard and take winning form into the finals.

Alright pretty excited about today! Pressure valve released and now we know what we are capable of. Don’t want to get too stressed out about it but it would be very good to win.

Anyone else doing the members walk around the boundary? 

I’m afraid not. I’m 3 games short! Enjoy it though should be great!

Last year against Brissy we had to wait for ages and eventually did it like 10 minutes before the bounce! Hope it’s a bit more organised this time.

Well done Jane! Love your work :) 

GO THE MIGHTY DEES TODAY! 

I can tell you what, today is an important day to win. A home final for our return to finals after 12 years would set the G alight.

I would prefer to win today so that we can kick geelong out of the finals, having gone down to them twice by a couple of points I would hope we would be primed for such a contest. I also like the idea that most of the finalists may not see us as a low threat because we have only beaten one side in the top 8.  Thats fine with me, now is the time that counts we know we can mix it with the best. just need to finish it off better. now is great time of the year to do so.

I'm a late out, so will be part of the TV audience.

I have a feeling. It started in my nethers ( a sure sign of veracity) and is evolving. Because I can't be there, I reckon Melbourne will have a mighty win today. 

This momentum will then carry us into a glorious victory in the Elim final.

I will have to rejig the nethers before subsequent predictions.

Is your 'nethers system' like Oscar the World Cup football tipping octopus? Whichever direction they are pointing at or moving towards dictates your pick?

Good question Col. It will require rigorous self examination.

I'll get back to you.

And they’d be lucky to get 10K to it.

Plenty of free over the counter tickets given away at McDonalds for the locals to fatten up the crowd.

Its the same with the NRL.  When i lived in Sydney people would come into the pub and dump  a whole bunch of free rugby tickets to the 'big NRL night game"  Never saw anyone take any of the free tickets. They ended up beer sodden and tossed in the bin by the barman.Most people who go to NRL dont pay. Same as last years woeful GF. Dumping free NRL tickets at McDonalds wouldnt surprise me.

What does surprise me is Pedersen missing out today. Surely he should be on the i/c bench.

    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
