  • 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.

Does anyone on here need to fess up that they cracked it after the Bonts goal and stormed out only to check the score at 3/4 time and think WTF.

Didn’t ‘crack it’ and leave, but definitely thought we were done.

I just wish someone could have told me that after that goal, they were only going to kick one more for the rest of the game.

When Bont kicked that goal I thought we were in trouble. 

 

The football gods took note of all the Bulldog prayers asking "just one more goal ... please ... just one more goal." Being cruel and capricious gods, they decided: WISH GRANTED

No.  After what I had drunk (to calm the nerves) storming was not an option.  I did let out my best plaintive Aw C'mon Dees.

I will confess to saying to the Mrs when Angus was having that shot on goal 'Get ready to catch this'.

Just watched the repay again.  Noticed a new thing, in that Sparrow was actually kind of amazing.  Had at least three direct goal assists that I noted and he seems to love crashing into bodies.  The kid can play. 

Also, how good was the whole team effort in the second half?  No passengers.  I don't think I've ever seen the team play better than that half. 

Totally agree about Sparrow. Before the finals, I was like how is he still getting a game, drop him and get Jones in. But in each final he contributed. That goal he kicked in the GF was amazing and came at a good time.

Yea hes a talent.

I thought he and Jordan were similar but Sparrow seems a lot stronger and has a great goal sense. Goody made the right choice in Sparrow over Jordan.

That 50 m goal off a step was Trac like. Not bad for a youngster.

His kick to Bbb was cm perfect and he was cool enough not to blaze away.

Watch this player I reckon.

I have it on good authority that Goody knew after Clarry kicked that last goal in the third we had it and his biggest problem was not letting the players know that at the break. He was unsure how to address them but whatever he said worked and they came out and finished the job.

Just watched the replay with the SEN commentary on youtube.

In the three quarter break on screen they posted that ..

Since 1984 only Geelong ( 2009 v saints) has won the flag when trailing at 3/4 time.

I wish i knew watching the game but i suppose after that last min goal spree at the end of the third i felt a little confident.

I watched that version of the game and had to turn it down, they were trying too hard to generate excitement and just succeed in yelling at each other. Even BT and Brayshaw were better.

In fact I love listening to BT squirm when he calls our winning games.

That comment of his when he says "Melbourne are drowning in goals" will have to go down as one of my all time favourites.

As is Brayshaws Bang, Bang Bang Bang.

Probably told them how hard they had worked and to win the next twenty mins.

I dont mind Bt. He goes early too often and calls points goals and makes a meal of players names but I love his genuine enthusiasm. Boy oh boy. I imagine I'd do the same calling a game. 

Brayshaw tries a little too hard but i enjoyed his bang bang bang bang.

How far do people think Fritta was to winning the medal?

Must have been close. He could have easily had seven.

A lot of hypotheticals but I could talk about it forever … 


Well he hit the post at the start of the 3rd , 3 goals that quarter would have seen him go damn close. 
Having said that Tracks Bomb from 60 that ironically bounced back over fritsch’s head could have easily bounced through for a goal and nobody was getting the norm from him then.

It was a sling tackle and the little [censored] should have been sighted and suspended. 

Absolutely. And I wonder what he said to Gawn, and whether he had the bottle to apologise after the game.

“This is a rivalry full of nastiness and there’s a few things that stem from it. There are senior players from both sides that don’t particularly get along”.

What’s he talking about? If there is bad blood it was not translated to the game. One of the cleanest GF’s I can remember.

I assume that is Kane Cornes, one of the most moronic commentators in the last 20 years. I’m so glad we don’t have him anywhere near our coaching staff. If we had followed his advice immediately after half time in the Gannie, we would have taken McDonald off, illegally substituted by the medical sub, and reduced Viney’s game time, all of which would have guaranteed a defeat. He is a sensationalist moron. Keep him away from our club at all cost. Our coaching staff are 1000% more astute than him

Pretty sure it was Sam MClure.
Decided the dogs were unhappy they saw Melbourne players on Twitter or some such sheet singing the same song the Dogs were singing in the rooms after they beat Port.

The height of disrespect apparently.

    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

    Angus Brayshaw Forced into Retirement

    After 167 games including the drought breaking Premiership Angus Brayshaw has made the heart breaking decision to medically retire from football as a result of a series of serious head knocks over his nearly decade of footy. We wish Gus all the best and he'll always be a hero at Demonland. 😢
