  • 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.

Tyranny of distance for me again this week. And no FTA. So, looking forward to reports, from those of you in another "very vocal Melbourne crowd".

Yes. It would seem that “health and safety protocols” will be a thing for the AFLW season and possibly going into the AFL season unless things with Omnicron can stabilize quickly. This could make 2022 a bit of a crap shoot.

And with its introduction it is going to cover all manner of sins that in the past were said to be....knee flu, soreness, groin, or just plain dropped....

Not on FTA.. crazy.

The Ashes is on ch. 7, fair enough. But they’ve got three other channels in 72, 73 and 76 on which to televise AFLW. I guess some people can’t go a night without Alaskan ice road trucking gold fever picking swamp junkyard overhauling oil digging storage wars and Down East Dickering 🙄

Shaky start but we found our rhythm in that quarter and were excellent. In control in the middle and shooting accurately. Our 2 youngsters McNamara and Bannon showing their class. Hore very good. Harris physicality monstering the Tiges defence

We're well on top and should win handily from here

McNamara is looking like a blonde Ed Langdon striding up and down the wing in peak physical shape and occasionally shanking it but also laying great tackles and providing a defensive and offensive number both ways.

Harris was great. Physical all game, got a couple too.

Paxy, really bounced back after a quiet week.

Was pleasantly surprised with West. Thought she did some good things. Also thought Goldy played well, given she missed last week. I know we were low on numbers but can't see Magee developing enough to become a regular player. Just doesn't have the footy IQ.

Harris might kill someone one week. Absolutely amazing to watch.

Really good game from the girls. All played pretty well. West was good and Caris was very good early. Tough at selection this week.

    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
