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.


Farewell Luke Jackson

He is full of [censored]…but no one can post the real story here, as admins will delete it

You were booted off here last time you posted rumour and innuendo.

Do it again and there'll be no coming back under a different name.

But I'm sure the 'real story' is fascinating.

Luke Jackson showing signs of his 2021 GF form according to The Age. Looks like that mystery knee niggle has been sorted out.

“Luke Jackson was everywhere for the Dockers in his debut, sharing ruck duties with Sean Darcy, kicking a goal, and spending time behind the play in defence. He won the ball off the ground after a centre bounce and handballed to fellow recruit Jaegar O’Meara who speared a kick onto the chest of Nat Fyfe on the lead”

So just like Chip, he mailed in his games knowing he was leaving. Say what you like about Danger, he played his heart out with the Crows knowing he was out the door.

I watched the first q of the freo crows game.

Jackson played pretty well. As wxpected Darcy was number one ruck, but Jackson probably played about 40% in the ruck.

Did some nice things when the ball hit the ground.

Played forward mostly when not rucking.

Marked on the chest leading out from full forward.

And from 30 kicked gun barrel straight for a goal.

Which was when the penny dropped he was no longer a Demon player!

and i bet he's:

  • training the house down
  • never been fitter
  • settling in well
  • helping the kids
  • bring his premiership experience
  • looking forward to having an impact
  • loving all the boys.

We played Frawley up forward and, I am told, we didn’t try very hard to keep him knowing we wanted to get ND3 as compensation. Much prefer to have had Brayshaw.

If you take off the spectacles of bitterness, it is not unusual that a player who was hampered with injury for a large part of 2022 has been able to return to full fitness over the offseason and perform well in the first practice match of 2023.

Some people just can't get used to the idea that a Melbourne player would wish to leave us, despite the fact that players leave every club every year.  We just  picked up three new faces in this very manner.

Points of order. He wasn't THAT amazing in the GF. And 'He was everywhere' may simply mean he was tried in lots of positions, so need to panic yet. On a brighter note, Freo lost.

Agreed on both points.

1) the legend of his third quarter artificially grows by the day. He got a couple of possession and maybe 1 or 2 clearances as well giving away 1 or 2 fees. I can think of a few players that had far more influence in the 3rd quarter of the Gf.

2) He was everywhere on Friday night because technically he played in various nominal positions.

    TRAINING: Saturday 2nd March 2024

    On the eve of the 2024 Season I ventured down to Gosch's Paddock for one of the final preseason training session before we head up to Sydney to take on the Swans. Here are my observations from the training session. The session was light and despite it being a Saturday was akin to a Monday/Tuesday session following a regular season weekend match as we played on Wednesday night and the boys had a couple of days off after the Practice Match prior to the season proper. Main Squad: May,

    ROUND ZERO by Whispering Jack

    The Coodabeen Champions have called it a day after more than forty years on various radio stations across Melbourne. When the lads chose the theme from the spaghetti western "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" as their signature tune, the game was uncomplicated with little time for scientific strategy. Summertime was for easy living and games of cricket, footy teams assembled in February, played practice matches in March and the season opened in mid-April. In their time, the Coodabeens saw changes

    I headed down to Gosch’s Paddock this morning for the Captain’s Run in the lead up to tomorrow night’s practice match against the Blues.  The squad that took the field was indicative of the lineup for that match at Ikon Park.  Likely Selections based on the groupings of players at the Captain's Run today at Gosch's Paddock.

    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
