  • 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.

Unfortunately I’m working so can’t go, should be a big crowd though, Trac will be happy. 😜
 

Fair to say I’m nervous about this one, the Pies match up well against us and we tend to let one or two of their players have a day out against us. It’s a huge game for us, if we back up our Freo win with another good win here it’s going to hopefully launch our finals run and, fingers crossed, we do what we did last year. When it comes down to it, if we play near our best we will win, I just hope our players turn up. 🤞🏻🔴🔵

I'm slowly getting a little nervous, if it was any other team I'd be fully confident but the pies seem to always hand it to us.

I also reckon their supporters are going to drown us out... and I'm dreading the "Coooollinnngwoooood"...

Their quick ball movement can be overwhelming when they get on a roll, hopefully with our settled defence we can somewhat take that out of their game. I feel like the dockers didn't challenge at all with their ball movement playing into our hands whereas I think the pies will go into the game with a "nothing to lose" attitude and take the game on with risk.

We'll be up for this. No doubt about that

Bring the same  heat and intensity that we did against the Freo and the pies have no chance

Time to put these upstarts in their place

On another note: does anyone have any clever tips for parking at the G? Normally, we train it in from Bala’ but want to make a quicker getaway tonight with the kids. Any ideas?

Park in a carpark on Flinders st. Tram or walk from there. That's the quickest way out. The car park is closed for 20 minutes after the game at the MCG. You'll be in your car and away before the MCG car park opens let alone get out of it

Methinks a quicker getaway would be to NOT park at the ‘G. Perhaps you could park at a train station (eg: North Melbourne) and from there it’s a relatively short train ride to the ground.

“Upstarts” -  Can’t  think of a more fitting description. Well I can, only every second word would be censored. 

We’ll get the job done tonight and we’ll revel in their misery. 🍻 

GO THE MIGHTY DEMONS!!!

I tend to park in a side street on the east side of Punt Road and north of Bridge Road. 20 minute walk to the ground. Plenty of alternative escape routes that avoid Punt Road traffic

Big day has arrived. I’m very confident today, probably more confident than I have been for any game this season. Think we will see big Max back to his pre injury form. 
Think our midfield will go to another level and we win by over 5 goals. 
Let’s smash these one trick ponies.

And hey, should we lose tonight (except we won’t), but if we do, let’s all NOT point the finger at Ed. To suggest that the outcome of a match can be even partly attributed to the pregame words of one player is foolish.

Hey Binnie .... are you confident? 

You are the person whose opinion* I respect the most. 

 

FWIW ... the day has started well for me. Got Wordle in 2/6!

Surely the pies at $3.12 would have the be the longest odds of any team on a 10 game winning streak. 
 

 

It’s funny that on Sportsbet now we’re shorter fave to beat Collingwood, 3rd on the ladder ($1.36) than Carltank next week ($1.39). There’s a lot of money very confident in the Dees tonight.

Forthwith, Ed will now be referred to as either "Colourful Melbourne Identity, Mr. Ed Langdon", or "Outspoken former Dockers player Langdon". After winning this years Norm Smith, references will be made to "F^&*ing Deez Legend, Langers".

Mihocek is a big in for them, as he always plays well against us.

He hardly had a touch last time until Turner got injured and we lost Petty for a large slab of time late in the second quarter. He should get more attention tonight.

    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

    Angus Brayshaw Forced into Retirement

    After 167 games including the drought breaking Premiership Angus Brayshaw has made the heart breaking decision to medically retire from football as a result of a series of serious head knocks over his nearly decade of footy. We wish Gus all the best and he'll always be a hero at Demonland. 😢
