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.

5 mins to go in the 3rd quarter replay. Kozzie stiff not to get a high tackle, Harmes equally stiff just prior. Also, I wouldn’t have paid the mark to JJ over Bowey, Bont clearly touches the ball first.

Do you reckon this thread will get more pages than a Jack Watts or Tomy Scully thread?

I hope I'll be coming back to this thread in 57 years. It will be the equivalent of smoke signals by then, but who cares.

Also, I don't think I've actually got over the R23 comeback and ending yet. That was a lot to take in. A bit's happened since then that's stopped me from fully processing it!

You’re clearly younger than most. I seriously doubt I’d be here in 57 years

I saw this too! A two-hour training session. And only 23 days after winning a Premiership. A PREMIERSHIP!!! Still not quite used to that yet. 😁

And Petty also was nearly strangled and no free kick. But basically, I thought umpires were OK.

Dear all… now that I’ve watched all of the Demons’ finals games multiple times (11 for the GF alone), I am very proud that the boys never resorted to rough play or arrogant grand-standing.  What an amazing bunch of young men we have! If only one of them could have married one of my three intelligent and beautiful daughters.

And JJ clearly put his hands on Bowey’s shoulders. Watch Bowey… he’s expecting to get a free kick.

There was clearly a second push whereas BBB's mark from Trac in the third, his hands touched the defenders back but there was no push. Someome on here days ago thought it was a free against BBB.

In the final Q, Petracca heavily tackles ? Hunter and wins a free in our D50. 
Games over,  CP runs by, gives Hunter consoling pat

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.

I felt pretty despondent …. left the room realizing that I wasn’t wearing my scarf ….. put it on and ….. bang, bang, bang (and repeat) …. so you can all thank me for the turnaround. 100 points to 7 with the said scarf on ❤️💙❤️❤️💙

You do realise that it’s your duty to wear said scarf every nanosecond of every single match next year, right?

Oh and during every single training session in which our boys partake. (To avoid any injuries.)

And it wouldn’t hurt for you to wear it while they’re on their post-season break (no drownings, rock climbing accidents etc.)

Maybe just never take the bloody thing off. 
Cheers!

I feel Jack Viney hasnt been appreciated enough.

He had struggled a bit this year with injuries.

Really stepped up in his last five games and while overshadowed by stellar mids in Trac and Oliver, he certainly played a big part in our success. Displayed some silky skills above his usual hard tackling and racked up a large number of possessions with much better disposal. With him playing like that more consistently gives us the best midfield ever.

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.

Gerard Healy was really awful in that call.

Anthony Hudson and Gerard Whateley are two of the best callers but hearing radio calls from people not at the game just isn’t the same.

    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
