  • 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.

BBB is contesting and getting to where he needs to.

But the strength of his contests has been poor. No explosion and one arm contests do not make for good forward craft.

Melky is looking great. Remember a few years ago that he got the highest SuperCoach score recorded against Carlton? Good times.

Forget Grundy.

Do whatever it takes to buy a genuine key forward.

Our forward line is a mess.

100% bank the cash and make a huge play for one of these Blues boys

We would have to be the worst in the league at getting back of the man on the mark and being the slowest to move the ball from a mark. Not many players would get a pass mark at this stage but where in front and hopefully find something in the second half.

Commentators gloating over a "great tight contest". I reckon it has been horrible to watch. Tacklefest, followed by Dees bombing it into the forward line with BBB attempting to mark with 1 hand, followed by more tackling, Blues kick a horrible blind ball to half forward, Dees intercept... rinse and repeat.

Well done Melksham. Pittonet is a dill. We are a better team but need to CAPITALISE.

Why was that “a gift” for fritta, he marked it anyway… 

much happier about this game than the Collingwood and dogs games, blues without their stars are clearly playing as many tagging/negating roles as possible. 

They won’t be able to keep it up the whole game. I think we will break away and win by 40+ keeping the blues to under 50 points

    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. 😢

    Clayton Oliver was integrated back into the main training group today for the first time in 2024 after completing a 2km time trial.
