Discussion on recent allegations about the use of illicit drugs in football is forbidden
  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    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.

    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.

Not at all. I have never liked the sound of the deal

We are intruding on Horse land

So I guess you don't like footy being played at the G because it's the Melbourne Cricket Ground?

It's possible for a sporting facility to walk and chew gum at the same time

And i thought only Pies supporters thought in black and white...

No Stiff. I am looking at the big picture 

We should be pushing to get Training Facilities built into The New Great Southern Stand which will happen in about 10 years. Anything else on offer is just a tennant situation

I put it to you that if we wait 10 years for new facilities, you might find that by then we are:

A. Not in existence 

B. Relocated interstate (FNQ Crocs, anyone?)

C. Still in Melbourne city, but known at the Melbourne Kangaroos or the Melbourne Saints

CRC seems the best of the current options, if we can get the funds and the deal is long term. But I am just an average footy punter, like you 🤷

And I hate to tell you, but we are, and still would be "just a tennant" of the MCG, as much as we all hate to admit it

I understand we need a home 

i Just don’t think The CRC will be the answer long term, but it’s only an opinion. 
The real story is we blew it 20 years ago

hmmm ....   i'm trying to work out how we fit 2 full sized training grounds into the southern stand, along with all the other stuff.

then the first time a big function is being held there we get booted out for a week

sounds like a well thought out idea, but

So let's look forward to the next 5 years, rather than look back 20 years. We need to have roots down somewhere soon, because who knows what might happen once our current era of success wanes, as it does for all successful premiership clubs.

Run with me for a moment WYL... Imagine if mid year we announce a brand new facility at CRC with gym, pool, admin, large indoor space and 2 or 3 ovals AND we back that up with another flag in 2024. Another flag could help snare us a couple of gun FAs next year and extend our window.

Or, we wait, and wait, and wait, and continue with our current s***house set up and slowly drop back to the cellar as Max, Maysie, Viney, Trac and Salo retire, and Goody moves on to a big 4 club

Its horse land only on the track and for about 10 saturdays a year, most outside footy season. February and October being the big Caulfield months.

We can win a Flag right now. I am happy to have facilities, i just don’t think it’s a great idea sharing with CRC. Time will tell

You do realise we will never again have regular MFC training on the G? That's la-la thinking.

Which leaves Goshes and surrounding public grassed area 🤮

Nothing wrong with Gosch’s Park Surface. 
i often wonder how hard we push the MCC for 1-2 training runs a week, nobody has ever given me a definitive answer, that includes Phone calls to the MCC. 

As a Full MCC Member since 1981 it’s a shame my contribution doesn’t help the boys run on the ‘G midweek 

It is our ancestry

There's everything wrong with training on open parkland meters away from one of the busiest roads in Melb, regardless of it being resurfaced recently. FCS, even Arden Street now has a high fence of sorts around it!

That we (and Coll) won a flag training from Goshes is both a miracle in itself, and a disappointment as to how much better we could be during this rate period of success had we world class facilities. We lean heavily on Casey Fields because it's so much better than what we have in town

    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.
