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.


POSTGAME: AFLW Rd 01 vs Adelaide

Purcell and West 47 touches between them playing in the middle.  Only in their 2nd seasons with us. 

With KP chipping in with 24 of her own, the mids just look awsome. 

BOG would have to be Libby Birch, who held everything together against the top line forward line in the competition.  Hope Goldy gets back soon, because Libby can't do it all on her own.  Gillard looks fantastic and can kick long as well.

Very quiet games from Bannan and Zanker, so plenty of upside to be found there.

Maddie G was good help for Libby tonight.

Considering the game is around half the Length of mens AFL that is pretty impressive!

~68 minutes tonight

One of my 2 favourites, unfortunately we won't get to see Eliza Mac playing this year but good to see her with the group singing the song at the end.

...Goldy is very important coming out of defence with her pace and physicality, apparently out for 3, so 2 more to go.

...and '@DeeSpencer', I reckon Blaith will be a beauty when she gets her chance.

 West has improved heaps since last year too

I was thinking the same thing.

Her kicking was coming of a really low base, but has improved heaps.

She had good hands last season, but looks to have taken her handballs to another level, helped by how strong she is.

Great win by the girls. I thaught our composure was the biggest factor in the win. 

100%. Adelaide brought finals like pressure, especially in the first half and we absorbed it and kept getting our hands on the ball first.  Amazing first up game really.

I’m very glad we got through seemingly unscathed as the ground condition was pretty bad.

Looking at the pix of the surface before the game I thought it was an accident waiting to happen.

That game was brutal. Adelaide are a tough side but we had their measure for much of the night. Eliza West has the build of Brian Wilson and plays a lot like him too. Liv Purcell and her were terrific in the middle.

Great to see Tayla used more aggressively up the ground, and getting more involved in ground-ball stuff too. ‘New’ midfield grunt looking good, should free up the better skilled players on the outside - Hanks, Mithen. This is the year?!

I think that was the best win in our history. And we’ve had some great wins. To beat the reigning premiers on their patch and to beat them at their own game is just phenomenal. I’m delighted with that performance.

Thoughts and prayers to Channel 7 Adelaide, who tried mightly but failed to punt their team home.

It was painful wasn’t it! There were periods in the game where they were so busy praising Adelaide they missed calling Melbourne marks, goals and transition. The final highlights package also featured 4 Adelaide goals and only one MFC goal even though we won the game! Get stuffed Adelaide!

And the sad ‘uurghs’ of disappointment from one of the commentators when Zanker marked at the top of the square in the last was broadcast neutrality at its finest.

Totally agree. Apparently we have won more games than any other side and I’d rank that pretty close to the top of them all.

Sophie Locke - debuting for the Hawks, and their first goal kicker - was more emotional than expected during the week when told she’d be playing tonight. Reason being: her mum, who was a great supporter of hers in her quest to play in the AFLW, sadly passed away only two weeks ago after a long battle with cancer. For that reason, I hope the Hawks win this match. Oh and because I hate Essendon with an unholy passion… men, women, doesn’t matter, [censored] hate ‘em all

Late to the party...but HELL YEAH HOW'S THAT FOR A ROUND 1 WIN!

Thoughts:

- Great team effort. Every single player super focused and aware of what was needed. A resilient mental game.

- Lucky on that goal review, but NEVER FORGET that obvious goal that Hanks was absolutely robbed of out at Casey Fields.

- Persistence in the stoppages was off the charts given the high level of pressure. Simply refused to concede clearances several times. Gritty stuff.

- Pretty sure I saw Blaithin Mackin taking a really active part in the strategy chat during one of the breaks. Love that.

- Great game by Birch but please put away the "tough" afters. There's a time to fly the flag and that wasn't it.

- Win was all the more impressive given little contribution from Bannan and Zanker, two major X-factors and the absence of another in Goldie.

- Debutants were fairly seamlessly integrated, no mean feat given the circumstances.

Looking forward to seeing lots of Dees fans at the double header on Friday.

Don't forget the pre-game gushing over how good it will be when Adelaide play Port.

    ICEBREAKER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons have broken the ice for season 2024 with a pulsating come-from-behind victory over Port Melbourne in which it took the lead for the first time at the halfway mark of the final quarter. The game played in mild Autumn conditions in neutral territory at Kinetic Park, Frankston, never reached great heights in standard but it proved gripping in character at the end at the Casey Demons overcame the Borough to win by 15 points after trailing badly early in the second half.  P

    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.
