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.


If not us, then..?

GWS midfield:

Kelly - Whitfield - Taranto - Green - Hopper - Ward - Coniglio

If their talls stand up - Himmelberg, Hogan and Ricardo - they should be top 4 easy and my tip to lose the Granny against us

I'm of a different opinion. We're not the only club with talented players, but what was our point of difference in 2021? I think it was the selfless approach which the players talked about. Given the follow the leader mentality in the AFL, I expect to see those teams that get the selflessness approach right to be the ones who challenge us.

A club that has just made Toby Greene its co-captain hasn't understood anything about selflessness. Greene is the poster boy for selfish behaviour.

What a hideous decision to make. 
Soft spot for the Aints…No way. let them suffer in the wilderness for a few more decades. 
they were a Nightclub back in the 80’s 

I really have no one else I want to win the Flag

Live is too short. I want to see at least 4 in a row 

At least!

I just want to say to those people saying negative and mean spirited things about Essendon…

I completely agree.

The funniest thing I've experienced recently is Carlton and Essendon supporters having a go at Melbourne supporters on BigFooty for being arrogant! Obviously born this century, I had to let them know about the reputation of Blues and Bombers in the 80s and 90s and even into the 2000s which really only got wiped away after salary breach penalties/two decades of being crap and drug cheating penalties/a decade plus of being crap.

If not us then I think then Port will win.

If not us I would like to see the Saints win. I know there are plenty that laugh at them having only the one premiership and now the longest drought, but we showed that they're made to be broken and I'd like to see them win it before the likes of GWS, Freo, and (lol) GC win their first.

I thought Brisbane were the second best side last year, so if not us, I think they'll win it.

GWS and GC would be the easiest teams to watch win it though.  Does anyone know someone who seriously supports (not vague, nominal support) either of them?  And winning the whole thing is probably the only way the AFL will see any return for the huge investment that has been put into those teams, which begrudgingly benefits us all.  Apart from Greene, they don't have any players I dislike.

I'd like for the saints to pinch one... however not this year. This is ours again.

I'd also like to see the $uns get one before GW$. Theres been far too much arrogance from that western Sydney team for the last few years despite their newness and lack of clout and lack of supporters ... I also hate the Sun's the least out of any other club

Don’t you get enjoyment out of their suffering? I know I do. The thought of anyone winning the GF other than us makes me feel ill. 

Yes I do fill ill but if we're knocked out it has to be someone else. My preference is Saints, would feell a little less ill.

Worked with a bunch of them back in the day. Didn't know so until Sheedy came and they started to win, boy did they come out of the woodwork and so cocky with it.

That’s me but with Essendon’s final winning drought. It’s just so funny. Long may it continue.

    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.
