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

Max Gawn wouldn’t agree with you there Daz, and you are a very astute Footy observer 

It's not just what we do it's what we stop the opposition doing and rightly " the team at the bounce " all get due credit in that best 17 minutes of rolled gold Demon magic footy " we will never forget. 

Someone mentioned Gus  in the third Qr and I had the great pleasure of him playing on my seating location wing  at deep in ground level at Optus that day. Yes he was pivotal but his form  in 2022 at half back was just as good but I just have the impression he has more team impact from the wing than half back as far as our forward line goes. 

I believe we should be maniac about getting Salem Bowey Hunter even Lingers and any good disposer JJ as long as he moves the ball quicker to our forwards in the team to make us a better link up with the "newish forward  line " hopefully with Petty JVR a fit Tmac and fitter BBB plus the smalls and Fritta whatever mix is selected. This is vital in our improvement.

Our dream has to be us winning the flag in 23, while Freo has a rogue season finishing  last or near the bottom.

Not holding my breath. 

Happily take the first of those but would love to see the Freoflogs sink like a big anchor

I dream of Freo having a Melbourne 2019 type season. That would be fun to watch

It's not out of the realm of possibility.

In - Jackson, O'Meara Out - Lobb, Mundy, Acres, Logue and Tucker is a net loss in terms of their list for next year. Unless Jackson takes a massive quantum leap from 2022 to 2023 and become a super star.

However I would expect them to finish 5th-8th and make it as far as semi final weekend if they have a good run with injury.

I think its very possible they regress and won't be surprised if they miss finals.

Many trying to rewrite history 

Fritta kicks one because Viney refuses an easy clearance to the Dogs who get first hand on the footy but it’s not clean and it spills to Harmes who kicks perfectly to space

Frittas second comes from clearance involving Oliver and Trac out the front, players fly Gawny going back actually gets a hand on it preventing a spoil and it goes over the back Fritta great reaction 

Brown’s goal -Martin jumps early looking to body Jackson and is not worried about the footy, Jackson stops as he’s about to jump off his foot pads the ball to Trac who spins and kicks to space for Brown to mark in front

Gus’s goal - for me he was our most influential player for the 3rd  quarter 

Tracs goal- class but don’t underestimate Kossie’s block on Dunkley which prevents pressure on Trac

Sparrow- again think it was English looks for body and goes early to negate the ruckman with the bigger leap, Jackson goes to ground and taps the ground ball to Viney and we break away

Clarrie - tell me you don’t see the special traits and potential Jackson has in this goal, think it was Viney who gets a boot to it but Jackson’s ground ball pick up for a player his size was exceptional, that doesn’t happen with any of the other 3 rucks on the ground and outside of Natanui it doesn’t happen with any other ruckman in the comp

Im not saying Jackson turned the game, the midfield group and the Dogs refusal to just go in level and play a stopper at the back of CBD’s all led to that mad minute.

I never felt dead and buried, we’d seen it throughout the season the team responded when challenged. After Bont put them 19 points up I turned to my oldest boy and said we just need a goal, we’re not playing bad we just need to convert from our forward entries. 1 minute later I said wow, wasn’t expecting such a quick turnaround when we were level.

There we’re points throughout that 3rd quarter where May and lever stood up, Tmac came into it a bit leading up the ground to assist with transition, Brown did the same. Really thought Gus was important as that defensive wingman and was the player who gave us the lead.

Your view point to think Jackson did nothing and base it on stats is poor, he was important but wasn’t alone.

The kid can play, hope he does well because he’s a nice kid and I like to see people do well. It’s footy and how he plays no longer effects me except when we play Freo. To many are tainting their opinion on him based on him deciding to leave

Picked up the Melbourne 2023 calendar and who is in it? LJ. 

Those calendars shouldn't be released until trade period finishes.  

If you were creating the 2023 calendar in January 2022 you wouldn't have included LJ as a just in case.

Or we can just lock this thread and move on instead of getting every little update on whatever he is doing in Perth...

Yes because providing a random picture walking alongside Andrew Brayshaw is exactly what all us Melbourne supporters want to see..

    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.
