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.

Game opened up when the Hawks stopped and we crushed them.

Take that last quarter momentum onto the Tigers.

Lever and Hibberd all game, with Rivers doing well.

Still need more pressure on the small forwards. 

The wings are working, as is our run off half-back. 

At stoppages we need more movement, they appeared static.

Really need the pressure game that disappeared today, so as to create more turnovers.

A few passengers (Jordon, Sparg's) and some who popped up at different times (Petty, Melksham).

Gawn can do everything, loved his ground balls gets and clearances, marks elite.

Not much flow for us in the first 3/4.

Some of our dinky handballs were cut off easily.

Our set shots for goal need work. We have to be able to make the most of our opportunities, especially against the best teams.

Tmac has been playing well, Oliver good again, Langdon our goal kicker off the wing.,Trac in the last quarter. 

We will own the G.

Great start to our season, now the big test. Tigers who may be a bit complacent thinking that they can get a role 9n so as to easily set up their season.

C'mon Dees get set for an outstanding, angry run at them.

A couple of quotes from Hawks bigfooty for everyone's enjoyment

Might need to dust off the 3-peat dvds. I need to feel good again.

The 3 Quarter Hawks.

We missed on the next Cyril in Kosi Pickett.. fantastic player.

 

I'd rather go to jail than play in our forward line.
 
Melbourne, umpires and AFL can GAGF. I am drunk.
 
We conceded 9 goals in 10 mins. How the [censored] is that even possible?? We were 4 points down 10 mins in. I'm speechless.

Always think the new in’s need a qrt to pick up the pace of the game & their place in the game. Thought all 3 ins and the team started to get a bit more cohesion in the 3rd qrt & broke them down in the fourth. Was Petty off inj in the last ?

We weren’t great, but the effort was always there, and allowed us to stay square before eventually bursting away.

You can’t play well every week, and we clearly have another level to go, both form those playing, as well as those yet to come back into the side.

Pickett is going to be a very, very, very, very, very, very, very good player.

2 goals, 18 touches (at 78%), 6 marks, and 10, count em, TEN score involvements.

Wasn’t that a typical Frost game? I mean that in a light-hearted banter way, not a bagging way. It had everything, his desperate best and... the rest. I actually felt a bit bad when he kicked the clanger straight to TMac, but I also 100% expected it. Completely to script.

Contrast that with Lever’s game. Just wow. Hard to fathom how far we’ve come in defence.

Some of the comment about Melksham on this site are ridiculous. He a class player. Also dropping Jones one game out from 300 would be a disgrace. Heart and soul of club.

That was the worst game of the year and the best win. I finally believe that we are serious contenders. Not because we played particularly well, but because we found a way to win and when we got on top we really put the foot down. 
The mark of a good team. Finally. 

Freo was our worst performance by a stretch. This one had the mark of maturity. A shocking first quarter. Steadied in the second. Got a sniff in the third. And crushed them in the last.

All without two key players from the first four rounds. It was genuinely impressive.

It also sets up next week beautifully.

That went how I feared it would, until it didn’t. 
 

Gawn and Lever were outstanding all day. I think we’d have been in a bit of trouble if Lever didn’t repel everything. 
 

Langdon is incredible. Not sure I even knew what a decent wingman was until he came. 
 

Jones is a problem. I love him, I hate our recent history of [censored] over captains, but he’s a class below what we’re trying to do, he’s off the pace, and I don’t think he deserves a spot. But he does deserve 300. Glad I’m not making that decision. 
 

How we’ve gone from no forward line to an embarrassment of riches is brilliant!

 

Kozzie ?

Jake Lever is the only reason we were still in the game at three quarter time. Our defensive structures were completely broken in the first half and petty looked like a serious liability. Jake was marking or spoiling everything.

 Things got sorted in the second half and Petty seemed to settle and did some really good things. Our biggest problem seemed to be centre clearances.

 When Max kicked that goal from fifty the stadium lit up! We never looked back from there. The hawks just couldn’t stay with us once we shifted gears. Great game but we really should have buried them in the third, we need to start kicking goals and not points

    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.
