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.


Farewell Sam Weideman

 No one gets everything right all the time and JT has a great strike rate.

When drafted he was seen as an exciting talent. It just hasn’t happened for him.

Agree with other posters, that he is a lovely guy to meet, but of course we don’t want lovely guys, we want great footballers.

PS: did we ever try him down back?

I don't believe we did.Perhaps Essendon will but I guess they basically got him for junk pics so maybe they will just move on

Nothing you can do about hateful social media comments. Best thing is to stay away from Insta, twitter and all the rest of them until your career is finished.

Ignoring the socials is indeed a way to escape the disgusting bile and hatred. However, it’s difficult when the vile comments come from your own “fans.” For example (and on a much smaller scale), on DL I have a bitter, nasty poster on ignore yet I am still subjected to his vitriol whenever someone quotes him.

There’s no way to fully avoid the pathetic losers online.

I feel for the young man. its a brutal industry and the KPF is the toughest positions to play. Its also a tough process for recruitment teams.

However, I do wonder whether there were any concerns regarding his footy IQ and competitive nature. I don't know Sam and can only go by what we see on the field, but it does seem that he is lacking in these areas despite having all the required skills, technique and athleticism, which is what compelled the team to pick him in the first place. 

It is what it is and unfortunately he wont be the first or last player that 'nearly' turned the competition on its head.

Get serious, we are talking about  “better” than footy.

CHOOKS! Pet chooks are the solution to the world’s ills. Everyone needs a pet chook or 10. It’s a tough gig having pets so far down the food chain but totally worth it. Today my Melksy and Harmesy will be front and centre on the couch with me watching the replay. Feathered Melksy has already seen human Melksy’s amazing mark and winning goal many times on my phone but like me, she’ll gladly watch it again and again.

Saw some pretty horrible and personal comments last night from Bombers supporters on social media directed at Weideman.

That's really sad 'dazz'...

He might not be a great player but he's certainly a good one to have made AFL level.

I would guess that none of the supporters getting stuck into him have played an AFL game and probably haven't played at any reasonable level.

Haven't met Sam but he seems a good guy from all reports.

As everyone knows. I have always been a  doubter on Sam from very early on. I feel very sorrow for him. I hope he gives it away and finds other things in life. There are lots Sam  

Like doing Special Comments on Demonland, for example. No one knows l thought that.

It doesn’t matter if he’s a star or bog ordinary, nobody, and I mean nobody, deserves to be personally abused. 

It was awful when Melbourne supporters did it, and nothing has changed now that Essendon supporters are doing it.

People need to take a good hard look at themselves. If that was your kid copping this garbage, you’d be disgusted and heartbroken. Sam has always done his best. Football is a damn hard industry and not everyone succeeds. But most people don’t have the talent or the guts to even try. Those that do deserve the basic level of respect from the fat losers in the stands. 

Quite right Jaded and well said.

I actually know his Dad and I can tell you they are a super giving family (still help out the younger teams down at Vermont Eagles) and all round nice people. Sam is a very well mannered and humble young man and any of us would be proud of the person he is if he was our son.

Isn't it tempting to fry them when their namesakes let you down on occasion?

Oh come on, when the lockdown was on, you weren't really hungry at times.

Alright, I take it back. Sorry.

With respect, try telling that to the families and friends of ppl who couldn’t take it and did the unthinkable. Besides, a thick skin can’t just be magicked up outta nowhere. It’s innate so there’ll always be “thin-skinned” folks.

    TRAINING: Saturday 2nd March 2024

    On the eve of the 2024 Season I ventured down to Gosch's Paddock for one of the final preseason training session before we head up to Sydney to take on the Swans. Here are my observations from the training session. The session was light and despite it being a Saturday was akin to a Monday/Tuesday session following a regular season weekend match as we played on Wednesday night and the boys had a couple of days off after the Practice Match prior to the season proper. Main Squad: May,

    ROUND ZERO by Whispering Jack

    The Coodabeen Champions have called it a day after more than forty years on various radio stations across Melbourne. When the lads chose the theme from the spaghetti western "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" as their signature tune, the game was uncomplicated with little time for scientific strategy. Summertime was for easy living and games of cricket, footy teams assembled in February, played practice matches in March and the season opened in mid-April. In their time, the Coodabeens saw changes

    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
