  • 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.

No Zanker hurts. Damn good thing we recruited Liv Purcell and she's coming good from the ACL to minimise this.

We need a solid win here for shot at top spot and for the saints to take it right up to Adelaide (knocking them off wod be even handier)

If last week’s form is anything to go by, we will have a strong win leading into finals.

We're a far better team than Carlton. Their form has been better but they've beaten nobody. We will win this game. 

The question is how big a factor the elements will be. Benign conditions and we will give the blue baggers a good touch up and perhaps even boost our percentage. If the Casey gale is blowing it'll even things up and make life harder for us. 

Making up percentage and trying to pinch top spot is a huge incentive so I think we'll carry on where we left off last week. 

Dees by 40 points

Any idea if coming first is any great motivation? If we smash carlton and somehow finish higher than the crows does it impact home finals? Maybe the GF should we get there?

crows will win easy so we’ll need to hit triple figures again I reckon

Does anyone else think it's strange, that to get to the sheilas football on the AFL web site, you have to go over to their "everything else" menu on the far right, and then go down down down, past "Toyota AFL club help", "Licensing queries", "Contact us", and only right at the very bottom is "AFL Womens" ??

Worst quarter I have seen from us for a very long time. They are showing no desperation for the ball. Sitting back and waiting for it fall in their hands. We could lose this and the year will be a waste. Bannan, Heath and Lampard have been our best players. It is now time for the ruckwoman Pearce to hit her straps. Give them a rev up Daisy.

Yep home ground advantage in the finals. Would much rather play Adelaide in Melbourne at either Casey or Marvel than at Adelaide Oval if we have to play them - would only be the GF against them

    THAT WAS THE YEAR THAT WAS: 2023

    When the dust settled on 2023, the Melbourne Football Club coach Simon Goodwin lamented that the club knew it needed to score more to land a second premiership in the current era. He opined that an average of one more goal per game would have had his charges in football’s stratosphere.  Goodwin was right and, based on his team’s scoring opportunities, that extra goal (and more) was well within its grasp if only they had better converted their shots at goal. Take the side’s last six defeats
