  • 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.

In January 2019, the then Adelaide player said in answer to the question which team she looks forward to playing against the most and why:-

“Melbourne, we haven’t beaten them yet and my best mate plays for them so we usually chat a little and the banter is always good”.

Look where she’s at now?

Sarah Could well be the icing on the cake and ensure that even on bad days (like the Saints) we will Not kick ONE  goal and many behinds to lose unexpectedly to a lesser skilled and more accurate opponent.

Kat Smith presented her jumper so maybe her?

Glad Sarah gets another go around this week, but as soon as someone else becomes fit, unfortunately that's it for her per the rules.

I’d get Sarah to stay at full forward in the next game... she’s a much better bet than Tegan Cunningham.
Tegan’s got the fumbles, and really is unlikely  to kick a goal from any more than 5m out.

Wasn’t it ridiculous when Sarah was called off the ground after her goal, ran 150m, then sent back.!?

She recovered quickly from this.

If I was a coach I would NEVER take a player off the ground straight after a goal. All clubs do it, and I think it could be worth 1-2 goals a game to a team gutsy enough to go against convention.

If the Dorks are to come into the AFLW next year (i'm already of the belief the expansion of the AFLW has been too rapid and spread the talent way too thin), i'd assume she'd be playing for them.

Hope we get to see her going around in the red+blue again.

no chance now that there will not be a VFL season this year.

I don't think the Hawks were going to be in until 2023 at the earliest anyway. I don't see how they could have added more teams while the current 3-year CBA was in place. All irrelevant now, as any more expansion is surely put off altogether. Which is what most fans/women's footy people wanted anyway, since 2017!

    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

    Clayton Oliver was integrated back into the main training group today for the first time in 2024 after completing a 2km time trial. FriendlyFellow, a new Demonland Trackwatcher hit Gosch's Paddock on a hot and windy morning to bring you his observations of the session.
