  • 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.


AFLW GAMEDAY: Grand Final vs Adelaide



Recommended Posts

Go Dees.

The girls have seen what it takes to bring home the cup. This is the prefect chance to show the Mens team how things should be done. You don't really need to wait 57 years for a flag.

I think the Women can bring home the bacon if everything goes right. Become club legends girls. Don't allow room for regrets post game. 100% effort for 100% game time and you can hoist the cup.

The girls are very capable of getting the job done today, but up against an all time great side, it'll be a tough game. 

Seeing Daisy lift the cup would be almost as satisfying as seeing Max and Goody do it.

The pioneer club in women’s football is up against the modern day power house.

Let’s make it a double today!!!

More like vs SA state team.

Go girls, get the ball out of the packs and run like the wind & kick straight!

Would be a huge win against all odds!

Go Demons!!

This team have no shortage of heart and guts. I know they’ll leave nothing in the locker today

We have to go toe to toe on the inside and try to break even in this area. No easy task. The Crows inside midfielders are brutes.

Bannan is a match winner as she proved in the prelim. Nobody can match her speed so we have to get the ball to her in space

Tayla Harris has to be more involved today.

Will be absolutely rapt if Daisy lifts the cup. We’re going to have to play at our absolute best to win. It’ll take a mighty effort but I think we will do it.

In a repeat of last year’s GF experience, I’ll be on the couch with my two girls cheering loudly. After bangbangbang I excitedly busted open a packet of Tim Tams for the kids, which is their standout memory! 
I promised that if successful this GF, we would do Tim Tam Slams with a cup of Milo! 
But win, lose or draw, what a great thing it is that my kids have witnessed the Demon boys and girls playing off in grand finals within 6 months of each other. That girls can look up to heroes like Daisy, Karen, Tayla and know they can participate, compete and belong - just like the boys. What these AFLW pioneers have done for the next generation of girls cannot be understated and should be celebrated. 
CARNADEES, put in your best show today and we hope you can bring home the cup!! 
❤️💙

Our women's team have been one of the top sides of the competition pretty much the whole time it's been up and running and have got so close to GF appearances before that I sense they have well and truly earnt their place to take part in today's match.

Hopefully the experience of players like Dasiy (10) and Paxman (3) who have played in multiple premerships at state level has an influence on their team mates.

Looking forward to the game - GO THE MIGHTY DEMONS!!

We have to get off to a much better start than last time we played them. 

It would just be brilliant if we could win and make it the double.

Harris winning a flag after 2 failed goes would justify her recruiting and be a good story for her. 

I know we have players like Mithen and Paxman who have been there since the start but gee winning for Daisy should be the motivation. She has just been a pioneer of women's footy. Her holding up the cup would just be the icing on the cake.

We will not win playing our usual style. We got smashed there last time

hopefully Stinnear has some moves up his sleeve. Manic attack mode won’t work as they defend well and counter on us

TBH I can’t see us beating them there, but hopefully I am wrong. We won the PF with Harris, Hanks, Hore , Scott and a few others playing terrible games.

If these players play great footy and the rest lift, well who knows.

crows supporting mate of mine has used it for years; i thought it originated from mislabelled merch, but accoring to this, stolen from a bigfooty from april, 2021, it's a supporter-led thing that ended up making a fair whack of cash for fight mnd:

Basically 5 years ago some lady on Adelaide Crows Pride forum said 'Go the Crom' after the win or something. A few supporters tried to get it going on and off for the next 4 years.
When we were crap last year it took off being regularly used on Facebook.
Adelaide Crowject Podcast have sold beanies with Crom on them at $25 each. Proceeds have gone to MND. I think they've made at least 5 grand for the charity maybe more. With that increasing due to the high demand.

aunty made a vid about it too: https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=2500352820269500

    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
