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.

Gees I love talking footy at the moment... I wear Dees hats most days or Dees socks and they generate fellow Dees fan interactions or other footy fans "You still talking footy after the Grand Final... time to move on?"... Uhm no, why no it is not time to move and and who do you support so I can talk chit about your club..

Gotta stay in the moment, ready for the interactions, when we parade thus, Cards (my 2021 member cap has been somewhat of a fixture 😀) Yesterday - anonymously cap-less this time - I saw a bloke with a Knight Premiers T-shirt and went across to him, pointed to his chest and gave a big thumbs up. Took him several seconds, and another point, to twig.

TR-A’B: a big thumbs up and two finger points to the guy’s chest.

As I posted near the time, waaaaaaay back, somewhere, the mannerism of the hand and the finger at the neck was a hint of a 'disability', and the other bloke a caring brother or some such. The 'age' of the reaction didn't seem to align with the 'age' of the person.

Regardless, it was an iconic moment, speaking volumes for us all, whatever our emotional or physical ages. Thank you, sir. 

I thought exactly the same thing as you.

Don’t watch me at the footy then. There’s age inappropriate reactions happening everywhere.

Anyone looking for some time to kill during during isolation or just wanting a general pick me up I highly recommend reading through the GF matchday threads on opposition boards on BigFooty. I read through the Bulldogs one the other night and it was heartwarming to see how quickly they went from "we've got this, Melbourne are [censored]" to "uh-oh I think we're in trouble" to "**** we've [censored] the bed here" to "no one could match them, Melbourne were unstoppable"

The Carlton and Richmond board threads were pretty funny in their own ways, it was a joy to read the Hawks supporters realising how far away their midfield was from competing with the best (IE OURS!!!) the St Kilda thread was just depressing I felt a kinship with them after reading through that misery (Petracca winning the Norm Smith just to rub it in) and really hope they can break their drought soon.

Looking forward to killing time reading through the Essendon and Collingwood threads, the Geelong one should be hilarious too.

Watching the GF so many times, I'm now appreciating some of the more overlooked moments, like this one attached. It's a little hard to see, but I think that Oliver basically flies along horizontally over the top of fallen and flailing Bulldogs, grabs the ball and handballs it mid-air in a breathtaking display of skill and focus. Amazing ninja level stuff.

I reckon we'll get one year of respect, and if we're good enough to go back to back then we'll cop it for the next 5 or so years.

I personally loved how my friends were giving it to me for going to one cup holding event and the main one on Dec 5, this was apparently over doing it.

Love how easy it was to forget we were in lock down around GF as well.

Yes, it's a terrible thing being premiers, and having all these celebratory events to go to.

Ask them why they didn't go to their club's 2021 premiership events.

Did you tell them Max sends his best?

I used to get worried about hawkins when we played them. They must have nightmares about Gawnie.

Make no mistake.
We were hunted throughout the whole of last year.
Every-one wants to take down the undefeated mob sitting on top of the ladder.
And with our reputation of choking when the pressure's applied they all thought they could be the ones to do it. 
This year we need to put that reputation to rest once and for all.
Put the foot on their throats early and keep it there.

    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.
