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.

Speaking of which, did anyone get more than 5 hours sleep?

I combined three bourbans and binged on cheezals to get me some shut eye.

Woke at three with the worst indigestion.

I more nervous than Bbos maid.

All the pundits hoping for a tough, close and suspenseful game.

Not us. A five goal lead after q1..to be increased by the same ammount each qrt.

There's a lot of talk about targeting Max and ....... no doubt Beveridge will have a plan to curb his influence.

However, there's been little said about Jackson. I reckon he could be today's wildcard. The doggies ruck stocks aren't good enough to handle them both and concentrating on Max could backfire badly.

The young bloke is playing "at home" . He'll be fired up for a big one.

Yes agreed. Max pushing hard forward / back is going to cause major problems for Martin, then Jackson comes on. No respite. 
Go Dees!

Here is an excellent article explaining when and how the GF can be watched.

Foxtel/Kayo replay available at 11:15

Game can be streamed from 7plus app but only on certain devices (why I have no idea)

You can stream the Grand Final live on the 7plus App, but only on selected TV’s or set-top-boxes. Importantly, you cannot watch the game through the 7 App on your mobile phone or tablet, as is the case for all AFL matches and the Brownlow Medal, which caught many people out on Sunday night (see below for info on how you can watch it on your mobile). This is due to broadcast restrictions put in place by the AFL. You can watch the game through the app on the following devices: Telstra TV, Samsung Tizen (2016 and later), Fetch TV, Apple TV, PlayStation 4 & 5, Android TV, Google TV, LG TV. You cannot use Chromecast or AirPlay to watch the Grand Final and you cannot watch a replay of the game on the app.

Breaking news

you can watch it on a mobile through the AFL app

Some good news late Friday night by the AFL, with confirmation the AFL Grand Final will now be able to be streamed live on your mobile device through the AFL Live Official App

G' morning, fellow Demonlanders, welcome to IT! Congratulations to all those up just after midnight to start this thread. Was very close to also jumping onto the laptop and getting started then, but Billy Brownless' "little man in my head" spoke up, wisdom prevailed, and trundled to bed.  

Actually slept well. Having a late brekkie now with coffee in my Robbie Flower mug (reserved for VERY special occasions). Feeling OK until I realise I have to wait until 7 ($@%^&%$@$)  pm! So, activated my GF day emergency plan:

  • Coodabeen champions at 10am
  • Water some plants
  • Watch the U19's WA v SA final at 1pm.
  • Then annoy the carp out my entire family, pacing and whinging with some Canadian Club until the game starts. 

GO YOU MIGHTY REDLEGS!!

There is so much pressure on our captain due to his recent massive increase in form.

Hell handle it. I also think He may spend more time up fwd and ket Jackson run amok.

I have promised myself not to open the drinks fridge until at least 4pm, don't know how I'll go with that :(

I know we are all nervous, excited, calm, confident, pessimistic and full of fear at the same time, will be a long day !

We will win though !

Fellow Demonlanders … I know we’re all nervous today and there’s a lot at stake for us … but remember these occasions rarely come around for us long suffering demons, so try to soak it in , savour the moment and believe. Be willing to be vulnerable, I know that’s hard for us , but this is our time now !

I’m not scared about losing anymore , I’m excited and believe about the chance of winning!! 

Don’t have any regrets later on you didn’t enjoy the moment !

Go you mighty demons !!!! 🔴 🔵

I think I might have just squeezed in 5hrs, woke up at 4:30 and barely slept after that.

This thread matches my feelings and emotions perfectly.  One minute an air of confidence in the knowledge that at our best, we will win, and win well. The next minute the ‘what if’s’ and lingering doubts kick in, and erase the confidence of only moments earlier.  My nerves are like a bowl of spaghetti.  
I needed a sleeping pill to get me through last night, but if we win tonight, a short doze in my lounge chair will suffice.  If we lose, I might need two sleeping pills!

Go Dees!  We all love you to death, and we know you will be playing for each and every one of us!

    OOZEE by The Oracle

    There’s a touch of irony in the fact that Adem Yze played his first game for Melbourne in Round 13, 1995 against the club he now coaches. For that game, he wore the number 44 guernsey and got six touches in a game the team won by 11 points.  The man whose first name was often misspelled, soon changed to the number 13 and it turned out lucky for him. He became a highly revered Demon with a record of 271 games during which his presence was acknowledged by the fans with the chant of “Oozee” wh

    TRAINING: Friday 19th April 2024

    They are out for a run just as it starts raining. It didn't last long, ended up a reasonable session weather wise.  Light duties, BBB, rehab Farris-White, Melky, Salem and Spargo, all with private trainers. They are all playing soccer, huge amount of noise. 36-40 (difficult to get a count) in the main squad, biggest I've seen it in ages. Choco is barking out the orders. Goody has intense body language as he observes. Bowey in a lime green cap (no contact), and in the sim

    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.
