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.


Farewell Luke Jackson

😡😡😡

This is the ridiculous small town scrutiny that Luke will be exposed to if he decided to leave particularly if it involves a mega deal - no idea why anyone would want to carry that gorilla around on your back

Of course players take time to reach peak fitness, but that doesn't mean they can't contribute from year 1.

 GOOD..........Jackson will see this Perth newspaper spread of him walking through the airport. He will realise this a red light warning of what he can expect if he signs with Freo or WC. Every game he plays will be under scrutiny.

He'll be photographed in restaurants and pubs.  A living hell.

Still confident LJ stays with dees.

Cringe WA newspaper thing .....

That's genuinely funny. Everything about it is so incredibly embarrassing.

All the other articles on the page actually make the whole thing even better .... WAFL oval conditions, Rory Lobb yawning, 1 year extension for peripheral veteran ..... and even managed to get their contractually obliged mention of Naitanui into the paper. Chef's kiss. 😘

I find this legit funny the 'Boo Ban' and the fact they use a photo of Gus

I hope the “Boo Ban” is enforced and abided by. Moreover, I hope they applaud and cheer for Dogga. 

Then 9am Monday morning he signs with us.

I kind of hope Jesse Hogan reaches out to him and tells him how hard it is. Not because I want Jackson to stay (although I do) but because of how it hampered Hogans development and his career - you dont want to see a unique talent like Jackson squashed because of the media in an two team footy state, or because of jerks just wanting their 5mins of fame.

Not knowing the kid, he may actually relish the spotlight and adoration.

Will be interesting to see how he performs tonight as he's been no better than "good" over the past few weeks.

Turn it on Jacko. We need a huge game from you tonight.

Kane Cornes writing in the Western Australian believes Freo are taking a huge gamble on Jackson. He believes the deal is done but questions his value as he is only a ruckman and not much of a forward in his opinion.

13 hours ago, whatwhat say what said:

my guess? because sean darcy comes out as contract as a free agent as a 24 year old in two years time

geelong will come HARD for him

Good point.  Solid insurance against that scenario?

Full of waffle but suggests we want one draft pick in the single digits.

What is it that the media don't get. We paid draft pick 3 three years ago and he's now better

😡😡😡

I actually like this. Gives him a taste of what is to come if/when he joins Freo. He may salivate at the prospect of being in the limelight all the time, but all indications thus far is that he probably doesn't.

If he does go to Freo on the big coin that has been reported and has a year like he has this year, I would expect some journo's to start the questioning on whether it was the right move for Freo. I suppose it can also play out the 'otherway'.

Can you imagine how awkward that photo would be for LJ today? It’s hard to imagine any scenario where he’s actually happy to see something like that in the paper, and extremely likely he’s quite p’d off by it.

Its a big game for Luke tonight, given the situation he's set up re-his contract negotiations and the rumours of Freo being in the box seat should he leave.

A big game by Luke tonight will ensure Freo cough up whats required to get him (i.e. a pick 3+), a poor game and that cough up will become a bit harder for the powers that be at Freo to justify.

Melbourne will win or lose tonight, irrespective of Lukes form, but due to our ability to recapture our team first footy. Luke having a blinder will be the icing.

Go Demons

Are we hoping he plays a blinder and helps us win or has a stinker which gives Freo cold feet? 

Us winning is all that matters.

PS: Without any injuries of course.

    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.

    DEMONLAND: Good evening, Demon fans and welcome to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast … It’s been a beautiful last day of September and how sweet it is to bring you our coverage of all things that matter about the great Demon resurgence which we’ve seen over the past six or seven months. How our team overcame a turbulent off season and a disappointing start to 2024 on a humid night in Sydney, turned our detractors into believers and then ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    TRAINING: Sunday 7th April 2024

    Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin ventured down in the rain to Gosch's Paddock for the Demon Family Series April School Holiday Open Training session. Not such a good morning, weather wise. As I arrived, it starting raining, settled into watching some Victory players have a kick around. The MFC squad come out as the rain abated, they had wide smiles as the walked down the roped corridor. Plenty of joy from the supporters towards them, kids everywhere, maybe about 500 to a 1000 of us.
