  • 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.


Hatred for Collingwood!

It's not a flaw, it's a strength.  I don't hate therefore I don't suffer.

Hatred is a normal part of human emotions. If you drop your vegemite toast onto the floor in the morning you can always blame a collingwood supporter.

I am in the minority but I like Collingwood. Always have. I don't care about their supporters...sport for me is about one thing...watching the best athletes battling it out desperately for the win

Thank you for bringing some decency to this thread and not contributing to the hate

I’m blaming the Collingwood ferals at the game last Friday for my positive Covid test today.  I’m sure it’s their fault.

Might also be advisable to get a rabies shot  as there has been an outbreak of some sort this week at training.

I had a 'fun' walk over William Barrack Bridge and down into Birrarung after the game.

For most of the walk there was an old codger on his motorised scooter weaving his way around the çrowd until he found a Melbourne supporter. He then rolled up beside them, hit them with a zinger that he obviously thought was hilarious, then scootered off to the next guy in non-Filth colours and did it again.

I was tempted to point out that he was a bit hard to understand cause his falsies weren't in and that he'd be better served focusing on breathing from the oxygen tank he was hooked up to rather than mouthing off to people, but I probably woulda got bashed for picking on an old guy.

There is a reason they are called the Filth.

For me, old synapses are starting to rewire on both sides of the fence.

For most of my footballing life, we and Collingwood have never been good at the same time.

I like the rest of my family were Collingwood until the 1988 Qualifying Final. We definitely had the wood on the bar stards and as a naive 8 year old, I thought this would always be the case. I swapped to the Demons and have never looked back since.

Now that we are both competing for a premiership cup, I definitely understand why George Harris said what he did. When they beat us in the early '00's, they almost did so with a sense of condescenison which in reality wasn't hard to understand.

We were horrible. We knew it. They knew it. 

Now, the hatred they have towards us is palpable. I am starting to feel it towards them as well.

See my family seems to have a tradition of spite running through it. My dad was from a family of Carlton fans and being the youngest he bucked the trend and went Pies. Fast forward to the young me and he would have been hoping for me to follow but I bucked it and went Dees. So yeah the only way in my family is to turncoat each other!

Something I resent in my inwardly focussed Melbourne way is how the public always builds up Collingwood being some kind of underdog against us like the last 3 times we've played each other and when they win it's like this feeling of scoring one for the little guy, which is total BS.

For as long as I can remember barring some triumphs in between, the black and white team has always taken the honours over the red and blue team. That's the narrative, the public should now want to see us knock them off their perch.

How’s this…

Basically my entire family barrack for Collingwood. Both parents, and three of my five siblings. 

I’m the youngest of six, and the next up from me is my sister. She’s the only girl in the family and wanted to set herself apart from the boys, so she chose the Demons, then got the word into me when I was a kid. 

One of my other brothers supports a different team though...

Geelong. 
 

Every time the Pies beat us I can feel all the ties that bind unravel. I see my lovely parents suddenly as toothless and my brothers all look like Joffa. 

 

Thankfully it doesn’t last too long.

Don't get me started on my hatred of the filth. Twice I have nearly had an altercation with filth supporters. Once at Victoria park and another at the MCG. On both occasions they had won. When I was younger ( teens) I had a couple of filth supporting friends who had reserved seats in the stand behind the goals at Filth Park. Twice they got me to go with them using another friends card who wasn't going. Why I let it happen twice i will never understand but it was a lesson in life. They were playing South Melbourne and I could clearly see the players entrance at half time where the filth supporters were spitting at the south coach. All fun and games at filth park. I questioned my mates about after the match and they thaught it was just ordinary behaviour.

I also think there is a generational gap in the hatred of the filth. Those of us that are over 50 to 55 years of age seem to have a more inbuilt disgust at the filth. Probably a stem from the rivalry of the 50s and 60s which war drummed into us.

I was taught two things love Melbourne and hate Collingwood - my hate for then has waned over the years mainly due to the pity for losing so many GFs and our lack of playing them in big games. Essendon, Hawthorn and West Coast were more hated.

After this year and especially last week they are back to the top of the hate lost, cannot stand them and hate the thought of losing to them.

Anyone who wants an understanding of the psychology of the club should read the book, Kill For Collingwood. It is a history of the club written in the early 80s and really delves into the early history of not just the club but the suburb it grew from. It is understandable why they have such a vile culture.

The worst part is their arrogance when they have only won 4 flags since the 1930s! 4!

    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
