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

Luke who? 
 

Dogga the man when he has finished his career and we look back at his efforts in 2021 and that 3rd 1/4 in Sept. 
 

akuna Matata 

I think the legend of LJ and the 3rd qtr of the grand final is well and truly overstated 

I’m not suggesting he isn’t a talent - he is but the 3rd qtr was all about our midfield he did handball to Clarry for one goal but having watched it several times it was all about Trac , Clarry and Viney imo

may the tales and reputations-made in that 9 minute burst grow wildly as we age. There is no place in this world for pragmatic debate about that small period of wondery.

Weeds two biggest highlights at the dees - the three goals in the third quarter of the 2021 GF and the fifteen goals he kicked in the 2018 finals.

Hang on, myself @Bring-Back-Powella few others have been quite vocal about this several times throughout the year but have been blasted by others for saying so.

People only now realising this because he's in opposition colours?

Some just cannot pick and choose when they want to wear their rosy red and blue glasses..

Maybe but it highlights his strength and why he’s valued so highly. His ability at ground level for a player that size is rare. We have only seen glimpses of it at this stage

No doubt he hit a hot streak in the 3rd even Gawn acknowledged this.

It was not dissimilar to Stewy Dee’s 5 minute burst in the 3rd quarter of the 2008 Grand Final

A certain prolific poster around here even went to the point of putting me on ignore because he wouldn't accept my view that Luke Jackson was NOT the sole reason we won the 2021 grand final.

He was instrumental in that magical minute before 3 quarter time no doubt. However there were a few players who were more influential throughout that third quarter.

Someone like a Bailey Fritsch should've been getting more of the credit than LJ. He was the one that kicked the two goals when we looked dead and buried.

Correct.

That third quarter was won because of 4 players. Trac, Clarry, Viney and Fritta.

The first three went beast mode and the last nailed the goals. 

We would have won that game even without Jackson, but we don't win it without the above 4. They were the real heroes.

Viney was involved in each goal in that short period.

Maybe not "buried", but I had basically conceded in my mind, after the Bont goal, that put them 3 goals up half way through the third. Another goal to them then and who knows.

we all see it differently. i never got worried. at the time dogs had biggest lead we still had more scoring shots and had missed some gimmes. we had a record in '21 of finishing strong and we never got out of touch in the gf

too many nervous nellies.

Certain people on here neglect to see that it was Jackson who got first use of the ball, so Jack viney and Co had room to do their work  during the 3rd Quarter and refuse to give credit.

History has primary sources and secondary sources. As time disappears into the rear view mirror the perspectives alter. As Chancey Gardener observed you can’t beat being there.

Before Luke Jackson went into the ruck late in the third quarter. We could not get our hands on the ball enough to do anything effective to respond to the Bullies hold on momentum.

Jackson was the spark that lit the fuse, the pendulum began to swing our way the rest is history.

Post doesn't have enough Angus Brayshaw - without his 3rd quarter there is no flag.

Watched those 7 goals that turned the game from mid 3rd quarter to end of 3rd q and Jackson would be 5th most important, and several of the centre goals Luke was ineffective, but our mids still got it back... 

I recommend watching it again. Just for pure enjoyment of it.

Jackson had 1 hitout and 1 goal assist for the entire 3rd quarter.

Again, a very overstated performance by some on here regarding him being that important link..

    GAMEDAY: Rd 07 vs Richmond

    It's Game Day and the Demons once again open the round of football with their annual clash against Richmond on ANZAC Eve. The Tigers, coached by former Dees champion and Premiership assistant coach Adem Yze have a plethora of stars missing due to injury but beware the wounded Tiger. The Dees will have to be switched on tonight. A win will keep them in the hunt for the Top 4 whilst a loss could see them fall out of the 8 for the first time since 2020.

    Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin ventured down to Gosch's Paddock to bring you his observations from this morning's Captain's Run including some hints at the changes for our ANZAC Eve clash against the Tigers. Sunny, though a touch windy, this morning, 23 of them no emergencies.  Forwards out first. Harrison Petty, JvR, Jack Billings, Kade Chandler, Kozzy, Bayley Fritsch, and coach Stafford.  The backs join them, Steven May, Jake Lever, Woey, Judd McVee, Blake Howes, Tom McDonald

    OOZEE by The Oracle

    There’s a touch of irony in the fact that Adem Yze played his first game for Melbourne in Round 13, 1995 against the club he now coaches. For that game, he wore the number 44 guernsey and got six touches in a game the team won by 11 points.  The man whose first name was often misspelled, soon changed to the number 13 and it turned out lucky for him. He became a highly revered Demon with a record of 271 games during which his presence was acknowledged by the fans with the chant of “Oozee” wh

    They are out for a run just as it starts raining. It didn't last long, ended up a reasonable session weather wise.  Light duties, BBB, rehab Farris-White, Melky, Salem and Spargo, all with private trainers. They are all playing soccer, huge amount of noise. 36-40 (difficult to get a count) in the main squad, biggest I've seen it in ages. Choco is barking out the orders. Goody has intense body language as he observes. Bowey in a lime green cap (no contact), and in the sim

    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.
