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.


Dees win $1million McClelland Trophy

I think it’s Crows v Roos this week. Is it the Saints we’re barracking for against the Lions? 

If trophy is decided on percentage (rather than split amongst teams tied), a win for us & Lions loss virtually wraps it up. I suspect it’ll come down to that last game though.

Is there an updated ladder for this? It's not even on the AFL website from what I can see. There's a chance that the % difference between us and Brisbane may well be too great even if they beat us in Round 10.

The women's games are worth 8 points, so, presuming Dees and Lions win this week, the current 4-point difference means % will be irrelevant in that million dollar game.

There's still a very outside chance Pies could 'Bradbury'. Our good % would help there.

nah aflw is 8 points. if bris beat us in rd10 they go 4 points up

filth could draw even too, but we have them on %

if filth draw even with us it means we lost rd10 therefore bris win trophy by 4 points

Got take care of business against Freo first but geeze that final round will be a big game for a lot of reasons.

Would be nice to see the blokes get behind the girls, but one sign of the poor culture at the club has been how little our men seem to care about the girls.

I wouldn't discount the Saints against the Lions this week. Lions have coughed up games against pies and tiges so saints are a chance. That said i reckon it'll come down to our game v the Lions. We beat them in the granny on their home deck last year so we have nothing to fear. huge game.

True. I wouldn’t be putting my hard earned on the saints but they’re in with a chance of finals so they’ll have a go.

Sorry.
The Dr Mclelland Trophy has been around for Decades. 
long before the Women’s Comp. 
it was originally based on U19 Reserves and Seniors 

There should have been a Pot of Gold up for grabs a long time ago

It was around back in the day when it was based on the combined H&A results of the under 19s, the reserves and the seniors. Of course that wasn’t sustainable because you need equal number of teams for it to be fair. Fast forward to now where for the first time, we have 18 teams in both the AFL and the AFLW.

Back in the Day, each VFL Side had U19 Reserves and Seniors. Back in the Days when September had crowds of 115,000 jammed into The MCG 

The Good Doctor was awarded back in those days, and there should have been a Financial Prize for the winner

How do they split cash, everyone gets a cheque for $11,000 - $13,000 (1Mil/~75 m+f players?) Coaches get any splash?

From my understanding the money goes to the W only, split amongst players and coaching staff. That’s what I heard on Thursday at a W function. I could be wrong, but geez, I hope I’m right. Average W wage this year is $60,000, up from $42,000 last season. Methinks the M are sufficiently paid already.

Of course there should always have been a $ prize. It’s quite a feat.

Any Winnings should go to The MFC So we can stop selling Home Games during a Season, giving our opponents a direct advantage

I might be wrong but I think it then went to the AFL minor premiers until it's rejuvenation in the current format.

Seems I was wrong. The million dollars goes to the MFC to be divvied up as they see fit.

We no longer sell the Alice game just for the $. That used to be the reason but it’s not so anymore. For one, the NT govt is one of our larger sponsors. And I’m not gonna go into how much it means for the community there. I’ve done so before and have regretted it, suffice to say I’m not as thick-skinned as I need to be.

I thought it had to be allocated under the soft cap between both men and women? 

You’re probably right. I don’t know how it’s distributed. Up until 10 minutes ago I thought it went to the W only.

    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.
