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.


AFLW: Rd 6 vs Carlton



Recommended Posts

As much as I don't enjoy the injuries and mystery illnesses, it's great the Perko gets another go. As soon as we hit that 23 fit player threshold, she can't play, so this might be her last go unless they continue to drop like flies.

And the game? I can't pick it. Carlton are a good team, solid across every line and fast. It'll be a big test, especially for our defense, which has the lowest against score in the league (aided somewhat by the low-scoring poor weather games). Carlton are the 3rd best attack though, so who knows.

A win sets us up, a loss sets us back. All failing, barrack against Collingwood.

A win puts us a game and good percentage clear inside that conference B finals group, and the only way we'd drop out would be if BOTH Carlton and Collingwood have a resurgence in the remaining rounds while we fall in a heap.

We're in the old 'masters of our own destiny' situation again, and as such are obviously doomed. This week and next week against Fremantle.

Is this actually going ahead? Surely it is a bigger risk to have players at airports, on planes and in hotels than it is for them to train in front of 20 people at Goschs Paddock.

Our best football is good enough to beat Carlton, but whether it is displayed for four quarters is the big question.

Any idea why Downie and Pearce aren't back this week? I thought both had only minor issues last week.

I like what I'm seeing from this, we're using the ball well. Just need to finish better.

Blues get it back very quickly.

Perkins set shot from the Dees kicks truly from 35m out after some good forward pressure in the pocket. (She's a big one!)

This is the first AFLW game I've been able to sit and watch. Honestly I've found it very entertaining, they go in hard and there's no doubt that the higher skilled players stand out above the rest. Our ball use and pressure has been the difference.

Blues get the first goal of the second quarter.

Dees 2.3.15
Blues 2.1.13

I suspect this will be very tight.

We're following the mens teams lead at the moment, lots of inside 50s but not much result.

Scott finally finishes a set shot from the Dees.

Half time Dees easily the better team but not making the most of forward entries. 15 inside 50s compared to the Blues 8 i50s.

Carlton's turn to be doing the attacking but no result, we then had a great chance from Newman then to score a great running goal but misses at the end.

Lampard down for the Dees with what looks to be a knee injury, fingers crossed it's not serious. Too many bad knee injuries in AFLW. ?

    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
