  • 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.

I've been watching through the last 45 minutes with different radio commentaries.  The SEN was a good as I expected it to be (Whateley and Huddo are the best going around imo).  The 3AW one was actually better than I expected. Looking forward to watching more (ABC call up next).

One thing I've come to realise is just how good the Sparrow goal was (2nd last one of the third term).  In the ecstasy of the moment and the focus on the centre breaks, I hadn't grasped how good that kick was.  Off a step from 50m out.  Wonderful kick and great work by TMac on the line.  He will become a great weapon going forward.

It was a brilliant goal he had to receive the handball and kick off one step 50m+ m whilst 4 Bulldogs were trying to get him from all sides.

Also, Gerard Whately's call seconds later when the ball sailed through - "it was up at Sparrow's and just kept going".

 

Great theatre.

Nah, just trying to find 'somewhere' to wedge in a $hite reference to his name from the run sheet.

I’d really enjoy reading this forum more if there weren’t ads in between telling me where I can find my “Asian sweetheart.” 😏

Understandably after 63 pages, we're beginning to repeat ourselves.

 

But hell, why not?!

It’s great isn’t it? Sometimes I don’t even watch the play anymore during the replay, I’ll look at the background for players reactions to certain plays. Spargo is my fav, always on his own somewhere back there clapping, cheering, fist pumping. A bit of a funny moment is when he spots up Fritsch for his 5th he does this little hop in the air shortly before Fritta marks almost like he’s urging the ball to land in his arms.

I always got a smile on my dial watching Spargo during Hannans goal in 2018 during the elim against Geelong.
He's running parallel to Hannan and goes through the action of kicking the ball when he wants Hannan to kick it 😂❤️

They're not interested in that stuff.
You'd be better off cutting to the chase and stating your financial status.

Just the thought of dating dating purely on race seems almost racist. Isn’t it inside what counts? 😉

Umm, that sub money helps Andy keep the place going. I don’t think the ad revenue is that much really.

And ads these days - unless you have a VPN - is you get ads for things that reflect what you google or search for in FB and the like…

Just sayin’

that third quarter, I just can't get enough. 3 goals inside a minute, not once but twice. holy [censored], put the game away. I love the look on the dogs players after Oliver kicks his goal, they are totally gobsmacked

“they are totally gobsmacked” That was the beginning of junk time. When we scored 2 goals in the first two minutes of the last quarter it was already an anti climax. 5 goals scored in 3 minutes of actual game time. The bulldogs were broken and no fight left.

I love the vision of Charlie just as the final siren sounds. It’s like it caught him unawares. 💕❤️💙

    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
