  • 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 excuses next week,  just get there Demonland. I’d like to hear crowd predictions, if Carl v Haw can get 67k  earlier in the season, this game can get a crowd close to 80k.

typically crowds tends to pick up towards the end of the year for finals conmtenders. 75k-80k definitely likely especially if Pies win this week. AFL members is pretty much already sold out. Same for vs Carlton in two weeks.

Be fantastic to have full house except for the fact that you may end up next to a Filth supporter....particularly in the AFL members.

I think we end up getting 75K which would be a fantastic effort.

The last time we played a home game against Collingwood that wasn't Queens Birthday was in 2019 and we got just 31,000.

I’m sure we all remember the Filth booing Oliver when he got BOG against the Pies (40 odd possessions, great many contested) and that little piece of excrement Ginnivan, mouthing off at Gawn when he got injured, not to mention how all he seems to try and do is drop his knees and milk the free kicks.  Business end of the season now, bring it on.
Our lads said they looked forward to try and get the job done in front of big crowds this year and are fulfilling their end of the bargain. We have one job to do, turn up and make some bloody noise GO DEES!!

Yes! We need as many Dees fans in attendance as possible. It’s gonna be quite the challenge to drown out their fans. But we can do it! We just need our fans to show up like never before.

If you're planning on stocking up on footy snacks before going to the game or looking to buy some waterproofs or winter woollies, avoid the supermarket in Collingwood whatever you do.

This is what happened to me when I popped in earlier this morning.

I got reserved seats for this and the Carlton game the day they released them. So annoyed at myself for not buying a reserved members seat for the year (and GF guarantee). Didn’t know if I’d be in Melbourne all year with work, and how covid would impact. 

Turns out I’ve been to almost every game in Melbourne, and paid $50 to reserve a seat at about 6 of them.

Agree, it’s OUR home game!  We really have no excuse.  We have been so proud of our growing membership numbers. We (I) bag out on teams like Collingwood, Carlton, Essendon etc.

But at the end of the day actions speak louder than words. Turn up and make some bloody noise.  I hate being out numbered and out noised at our home games.

You won't wanna miss this one.

Biggest Demons v Pies game since the 88 Semi Final.

2nd v 3rd. Friday night. Round 21. Should be a massive crowd. And we get to feed them some humble pie 😝

    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
