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.

Interesting watching the swans. Game

rivers went behind the goal line hung on by a swans player, rushed behind , swans player dumped rivers to the ground well after the crossing . Swans got 50 m penalty. Also levers push was a joke , swans player did not correctly dispose of ball when tackled . Lever should have had the free

I keep saying ( to my fellow golfers who have reminded me about 186 for years )that we had 2 Practice Matches against Geelong :

1 To see how much of a start we could give them and still win.

2 : To show them how much we could win by when we play fair dinkum.

I wonder why nobody wants to play golf with me !!!

Another 👍everyone (except maybe a 🤔 on the Daniel Gawn-sling, I'll keep my own counsel there...)

About a million pages back I asked if RDB's reaction had been shown anywhere. Still silence? I hope he's OK. He was up to the sort of stuff the media craved pre-game but I wonder if that's the case for post-game...

Screen shot from part of an article in the HUN on Sept 26.

Underrated moment in the game:

In the second quarter after the Bulldogs kicked three and had all the momentum Jackson took an excellent contested mark on the wing.

But then he went back, used the new man on the mark rule to his advantage and ran clearly wide of the stationary player on the mark which allows him to execute a beautiful long kick to Brown who kicked a goal.

Great moment - awful rule.

Im thinking about great players that never won a  flag, Ablett, Plugger, Robert Harvey, Riewoldt, Skilton and our great players and I look at Bowey in his 7th game win one.

Then I chuckle to myself to look at everything Dangerfield has achieved and the only thing that alludes him is the one thing our players have got. He must look at Bowey and Sparrow and think how the hell did you get one. 

The youngest players in a premiership side are always going to get one early. And Marlion Pickett got a premiership in his first game in 2019 and by the time he'd played 20 games he had two.

haven't seen these posted yet. Unbelievable pictures from after the game in the rooms. 

bedford and Laurie etc being embraced like they were in the ground is heart warming. 

Can’t see Big Ben Brown in any of them. Perhaps he was with the drug testers. Imagine that, having to be kept separate from the celebration until you can produce the sample. Talk about Grand Final pressure.

Interesting comments from Cody Weightman here. Probably not what Doggies fans want to hear (which might be why it wasn't highlighted in the subsequent article on the doggies website).

'The Bulldogs had a much longer road to the Grand Final than eventual winners Melbourne, but Weightman doesn't believe it was the reason the Dogs lost so heavily.

"The way we approach this will be interesting. I think we've got the group to go one better next year and I hope this can carry us further," he said.

"It's hard to know. We've become so good at being resilient and copping whatever comes our way. It wasn't any different to what's happened in the past few years. I think Melbourne were just too good on the day, really, and whether we travelled or not, they probably still win that game, unfortunately."'

Great piece from the club, well cut. Would've loved the "It's Coming Home" line from Max in there though.

Gives me lot of respect for Cody actually. 

I watched the replay again last night and simply cannot believe he did not get a concussion test after smashing into the post and then hitting the the ground with such force in the first quarter.

He was running flat out and jumped in the air and his head hit the padded part of the post really hard.

When he fell his head didn't hit the ground but did whiplash really badly, and it my understanding that sort of movement is the cause of a lot of concussion (ie the brain moving inside the skull and hitting the skull).

Who knows if it was factor in his performance, as he was never in the game after that, but is no stretch to think it might have been . 

I was amazed at the time there was no concussion test and doubly so last night - particularly given he was returning from a concussion i would have thought.  I mean the double head impact was crystal clear and they have an obligation to check his health and keep him safe. 

And I was equally amazed that not one Channel 7 commentator questioned whether he should have been getting a concussion test. They showed the replay at least once and there was not a peep about why he was being tested.

Perhaps it is yet another example of the problem of having ex footballers dominate the coverage of the game. There was another example when Bont bumped Oliver's head - Podgy immediately and instinctively said there was no problem and that Oliver would be fine. Oliver was clearly hurt and was down for a while. When he did get up, Podgy says words to the effect of there you go he's fine. So much for the head being sacrosanct.

    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
