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.


POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs North Melbourne


Demonland

Recommended Posts

No team should ever win a game of AFL by a 100 points. Only happens if a team throws in the towel. North did not do that this evening. A 50 point win in the circumstances is a fair reflection of our superiority

The real test for us is Freo next week. I'm sure our performance level will lift and we'll win that game.

So, when did the rule change?  Back in the day, if a player was tackled and failed to correctly dispose of the ball (kick or handball), he was penalised.  Lost count of the times tonight where that went unrewarded.  (Yeah.  I know.  What's new?)

Some of you just don’t know how long a footy season is to play. The fact that we won so convincingly when they obviously steeled themselves for this, is testament to the great group we have.

Also, we are in better form than last year. That doesn’t mean anything for the end of the year but we are in another great spot.

The hit/tackle similar to the one Chandler got 2 weeks for??

yes he lifted him off the ground and slammed him in to the turf

.

Great tackle but if compared he should be rubbed out in my opinion

I actually rate it as a really good win. North were very, very good - tough at the ball, brutally physical (a bit too much at times) and ripped through us with a short passing game they could not sustain. We stood up, although we were horribly unclean for the first half.

Clarry - superstar

Well done Tmac, Spargo, May, Sparrow in the 2nd half, Lever in patches.

Lots of handball practice this week at training please.

Jeez mate, the facepalm brigade will be all over you.

I think it is not a patch one last years epic effort but my missus just asked me to buy one for her so I guess its 50/50 in my household.

A shout out to the arrogant North fan next to me who, when North got 2 points up said “we have a young list… it’s all downhill for you now” 

Enjoy that shiny spoon  

 

They were really sour today all day. I was a bit surprised at how often they whinged and had tantrums about obvious free kicks.

They seemed very unlikeable - and I’d know.

That ground is a nightmare for the players like a skating rink…injuries seem to happen a lot more often there too glad we aren’t running out on it too often.

Was worried when Clarry took out a clump of turf on the wing & looked to have injured himself. Fortunately not the case.

I like it and so did my 9yo. Different people have different opinions. We live in Australia and different opinions are allowed as far as I’m aware

She loved it at first sight. Although for a relatively recent arrival to the country (she does her citizenship ceremony on Tuesday) she really has developed a mental disorder when cheering for the Dees. I swear she would physically harm anyone in our house who spoke negatively against the Dees on game day.

.......aaaand so I will do the right thing just as soon as it is listed in her size on the Demon shop. Cos, you know, i don't want to die just yet.

 

oh, and my own mother has been telling her she has questionable taste since day 1.

A few supporters are hard to please. 
Early 80s at the G you would only go to watch Robbie! 1st year of Roos and pre Roos there were some horrible losses and we didn’t win to often.

We have a great team, who play fantastic team football, with some generational players, who have delivered a flag and taken us to 10-0!

So for crying out loud…….Enjoy Every Win!

Keep going Demons!!!!

Pros:

- We got the 4pts (and makes it 10-0 to start the year, one better than last season)

- TMac continues to hit the scoreboard 

- Fritta got 3

- Oliver continued his bloody good year

Cons:

- seems likely a costly day medically speaking; Lingers, TMac, Gus, even Trac at one point all looked very sore/injured

- our goal kicking failed to put a team away earlier again

- our inside 50 efficiency continues to be sub-par

I’ll also put a question to Demonland: are we playing arrogant and will it come back to bite us? 

I just feel watching us the last couple of weeks we almost don’t care against lesser opposition. They seem to go hard for a period and then leave it at that, the hunger hasn’t there recently. 

Next week is a massive game, we play like we’ve been playing the last two weeks and we will fall to Freo. 

Happy to bank the 4 points and move on, but I hope there boys will be switching on through the week. Oh, and how Brown managed to miss that soda in his 150th is beyond me. One of his worst games for the club, shame it had to come against his old side. 

EDIT one other thought: Luke Jackson hasn’t been on for a while. Not suggesting he get dropped but any thoughts on why this could be?

    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.

    TRAINING: Sunday 7th April 2024

    Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin ventured down in the rain to Gosch's Paddock for the Demon Family Series April School Holiday Open Training session. Not such a good morning, weather wise. As I arrived, it starting raining, settled into watching some Victory players have a kick around. The MFC squad come out as the rain abated, they had wide smiles as the walked down the roped corridor. Plenty of joy from the supporters towards them, kids everywhere, maybe about 500 to a 1000 of us.
