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.

I am happy you are blessed with a body that is capable Dr. I am still passionate and pay my membership as  I have for most of the last 50 years. Does my inability to attend these night games when I will end up in level 4 which I cannot get to make me now redundant. I will have managed 3 games live this year. So on the basis of your comment I should not pay my membership for season 2023?

I’m pretty sure Dr. G’s comments weren’t directed at you, OD. He said, “if you can go to games like this and don’t…”.
It’s well understood that you and many others in your age group/state of health would love to attend but simply cannot
You are clearly a loyal and passionate supporter. And you’re by no means redundant. 💕

I hope you enjoy watching our boys make minced meat of the pies on TV!😁❤️💙

He said the club was hoping for that. There is no chance it will get to 85.

anything above 70 is a win.

Haha. 

Gotta love how people hear things so differently. One word is all it took. 

Expected Vs hoping. 

Changes everything.

It's strange that that is what you would take out of my comment. I said "if" you can go - obviously you are not in a circumstance which enables you to go. I know you'll be cheering us on on the tv though OD

There will definitely be fights during and  especially after the game if pies lose. I wouldnt be taking any  kids. Men only night or maybe a few Frankston girls with tatts.

Only Frankston? How about girls with tatts from St Albans? Asking for a friend. 😁

I think it would be good to remember that in Round 19 2018 Richmond and Collingwood got 88K to 1st v 3rd. First time that both teams had been in premiership contention for decades and it was a perfect day.

For us to draw anywhere near that would be a miracle and we have a covid world to deal with.

My apologies as I did miss the " if".

A top 4, round 21 clash against the hated pies. Next week Carlton with hopefully 3 finals at G soon after. This is what we've been waiting years for. Consecutive big in August/September games to look forward with hopefully a flag to celebrate at the end of it.

This is a great time to be alive. No excuses whatsoever for Melbourne based fans not getting along to G over this period

No one from St Albans goes to the footy. 

Actually, you’re right, OD. And it shall remain so unless and until nearby Ravenhall Correctional Facility grants day release on weekends/evenings. 😃

Think you were the last person Gonzo was referring to OD. Without putting words is his mouth we both probably know a heap of vibrant and energetic people who could easily go but choose to whiff it and watch on TV.

Ha ha, St Albans is now populated by mainly people of Asian and Indian origins. I sometimes catch the train on that line when going to the G see very few  fans of any club. On Broady line you see a lot of fans.

Random MCG Comment;

MCG fireworks to return after flammable cladding review

Wonder if we still have those fireworks that we were denied to use in Round 1.

Fire away lads!

Been a while since i lived in OZ.

Bacchus Marsh used to cut up pretty feral in the 80 and 90's. See no reason why things would change.

If we get 75k+ for both the Carlton and Collingwood games we will get our highest average home attendance ever, despite Anzac eve and QB big freeze both being away games.
The narrative that Melbourne fans haven’t turned up this year is a myth, we haven’t had the huge upturn in crowds many have hoped for, partly due to COVID, but it has still been one of our best years ever. Even if we only get 40-50k for the next two games, it will still be in our top 4 best attendances ever! Hardly a disaster.

oh and I’ll be there, always am.

Not partly due to COVID. Wholly due to COVID. Anyone that thinks people are staying away because it's cold are kidding themselves. COVID is stopping many from going.

Yep - Covid is peaking for the year.

but we’ll be coming down from the slopes (of Daylesford) to watch this one. Should be a cracker.

I like the "Friday weather forecast... FIRE- moderate chance   .... really?  At the game?   NWind is interesting. unusual for August. that means there could be a strong advantage kicking to the punt rd end first.Might get a little drizzle. I'd definitely be going if in town.

Why wont filth supporters turn up on account of it being a Melb home game?  So what!  They had theirs on Queen Lizzy Birthday . Theyre 10-0. ffs What else are they going to do. Can you visit relatives and mates at Barwon Prison on Friday night?  I doubt it.

Only problem is late start at almost 8pm. Half the crowd will have drunk a skin full  waiting for the  bounce.   There will definitely be fights during and  especially after the game if pies lose. I wouldnt be taking any  kids. Men only night or maybe a few Frankston girls with tatts.

Gil Mc Lachlan is a clown.

Don’t be too harsh on the Pies, there’ll probably be fights even they win

Bit the bullet and booked ADL-MEL-PER. Expensive little side trip in the end but it’s worth it considering it’s the only game I’ve been able to make so far this year.

Legend!

you won’t regret it

    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. How our team overcame a turbulent off season and a disappointing start to 2024 on a humid night in Sydney, turned our detractors into believers and then ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    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.
