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.

Jesus grow a hide, how soft is this world coming becoming if that throw away line offends you.

Soft  @demon3165? Maybe some people in this world are just sick of constantly being on the receiving end

of blatant untruths and prejudice because of where they live,  from people who should know better.

Refer the email signed by the Chairman dated 14 Jan 2021

You mean the email written by a past chair who is no longer on the board?  

I've had to look up that email, and I found it.  I agree,  this is one that could push the barrel as to what could be allowable.  Bartlett, though, is no longer on the board.

Now that's the way the minority want it, so the football world that says if want to be a pie supporter you have to have no teeth, bomber supporters all take drugs, demon supporters go to the snow after round two etc, so we should all stop that, the world has gone mad and people are losing their sense of humour, and humour is what this country was built on....

As WCW has said you know Kate Roffey and it's understandable that you defend her and the Board

Same could be said about you and Peter.

can't believe people seriously have a problem with the need for 20 members for nomination

other than to be just frivolous or vexatious

...and if I might ask. Why the need to raise nominations to 20 members?

There hasn't been a rush on members nominating for the board in recent times has there?

So why?

It just seemed to be pointless.

I have lived and taught in and around Moe for 50 years,   raising a large family,   among many other MCC and MFC members,

and I thoroughly resent and reject Ms Roffey's slur,  and lazy stereotyping of a wonderful community.

It was a play on words that rhyme - you might as well see it as a slur on everyone called Joe. Moe's misfortune here is that it's one of the very few place names that rhymes with personal names. Having said that, Ray from Yea or Margot from Dargo might have worked in the same context.

Oh OK

It was the last guy....

Therefore, no one will ever stretch the bounds again... Thank God for that!

I guess I'm fine then making it harder for individuals to nominate for the Board, and strengthening the Board powers through Nominations sub committee 🙄  (to solve a problem that doesn't exist)

I think your reaction of the face palm on this comment was childish.

Can you tell me why the needed to raise the nomination limit to 20 members?

It doesn't make any sense to me...but I guess you're happy to go along with whatever the board put up.

I mean it's not a big deal, but if not then why?

They can put it up even more , I don't care. As someone else said if you can't get 20 or more people to back your nomination it most likely is a waste of time. I have never just gone along with whatever the board put up, from 1983 until 2014, I have many heated talks with various board members, just because I don't bag the coaches or footy department on here do not make the mistake that I have happily accepted the plight of the club since 1964.

I get to the games a couple of hours before game time and seek out board members especially, to voice my concerns face to face.

Yep, I know you don't bag them on here and probably have mistaken that at times for going along with the status quo.

I also know you are a passionate supporter....

The noms I still don't get but anyway it is what it is and we move on to what should be a successful 2023...

Because under most constitutions you need a certain percentage of members of the membership to set these types of actions in motion.

Strange example you used of the training session roping off supporters at Gosche's Paddock.  Hello, COVID.

 

Roped off area for the directors was a feature of the “come on down, fans” training sessions before COVID. It’s something that I didn’t like, and has stuck in my memory.

As some have noted, this thread is devoid of humour and so I feel compelled to inject my own feeble contribution.

Do you own a pair of moccasins and are you likely to wear them in public?

Are you a MCC member?

Is the reason you are sick of being on the receiving end more associated with you being a teacher (sorry that wasn't funny).

Please, please tell me you're not thinking of becoming a postal worker?

have you rung or written to the club asking them why there was a roped off area for staff? If the reason doesn't sit well with you then you could submit a complaint

whining on here is probably not going to get you an answer or a resolution

I would say it is guaranteed not to DC.

    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.

    DEMONLAND: Good evening, Demon fans and welcome to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast … It’s been a beautiful last day of September and how sweet it is to bring you our coverage of all things that matter about the great Demon resurgence which we’ve seen over the past six or seven months.

    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.
