  • 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.

I hope to see a lot more of the swashbuckling, fun-loving Demons that we saw last year.

I wanna see ANGRY Demons. I wanna see Tracc snorting like a bull just like during the GF. I wanna see Jack lift up Maxy in delight. I wanna sing our song on the final siren. I wanna have to make a banner next Thursday. I wanna have to work at the DA BBQ again next week. 

I’m not ready to let it all end tonight. 

WE CAN DO THIS!!!

❤️💙❤️💙❤️💙

Couple of Geelong supporting friends absolutely [censored] themselves at the thought of playing us in the Prelim. HQ would love last year's game happening again. They would prefer a different result though.

Pretty confident about tonight. 30 points or so.

So they should Clint..  Cats hold no fears for me (sort of).  They have Cameron/Hawkins - we have May/Lever.

We have Gawn/Jackson,  they have ....??????????

We have Oliver,  they have........???

Game over!.

You do get the feeling that if we do get through it will be Geelong's Grand Final.

I've got this dream at the moment that Geelong show their age at the worst possible time. It can happen.

So if we lose tonight do we finish sixth for the year. 

It's a moot point as we'll win, but should the unthinkable happen I think we'd officially finish fifth as we finished the H & A season higher than the other team that will be eliminated (Fremantle or Collingwood).

Confident tonight - 18 points. Keep alive the dream of a Collingwood v Melbourne Grand Final! 

Probably get put in a spliff next week by the Cats but anything other than a top 4 finish is a fail this year.

Definitely a dream and no premiership victory would be sweeter but I just wonder if I'd make it through the whole pulse raising ordeal!

Sell a kidney if you must. I hear it’s a seller’s (black) market. You’ve got two so it’s all G. 
Also, look around you and ask yourself “do I really need all my furniture?” FB marketplace is probs responsible for getting many a fan to interstate games. 😁
Just get here!

  • Demonland changed the title to GAMEDAY: SF vs Brisbane

David King has said on SEN this morning that our strategy of kicking to the pocket inside 50 has destroyed our campaign. Said we have got caught up with “the percentage play” and he hates it. 

Partly defended Spargo, ANB, & Melksham in saying that if we had a better method, they would be able to get more involved.

Yeah I'd rather play Collingwood in a GF rather than a prelim.

This is where dynasties start. It is bloody hard to go back to back that's why even the Cats have never done it. Remember the hawks when they lost and had to go to Perth and beat WC? Sometimes you have to do it the hard way. We are carrying injuries but we can do it.  Win 3 games. we have the stars that can stand up and make it happen

Cmon you DEMONS!

Yeah I've heard people swear by it. With anything you probably get a few extra emails from numpties but that's no biggie. I used to sell a bit on Ebay but find it a lot harder now, seems like more of an Amazon/Kogan/Catch business these days.

    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. 😢
