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.

This morning’s news makes me flat and (almost) disinterested.  It just doesn’t feel like Gameday.  
I need a spark.  I hope the Dees can ignite it with a thumping win!

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!

Hoping the battle hardened way will prevail over the easy way. I know we’re carrying injuries but I live in hope.

Not thinking ahead too much but by the time prelim day hits Geelong will have played 1 game in a month and 1 competitive game in 6 weeks.

The Lions will be fired up for this one, after the embarrassment of the past few years. And they will come out hard but I expect them to play the ball more than the man this time 

Demons by 9 points in a cracker

Gawn BOG

They have dropped two snipers.

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. 

Right, getting on board by emptying out the cupboards!

A doctor did tell me I have two healthy kidneys at the end of last year too... 🤑

We'll win. The Lions are total bottle jobs and will fold again tonight

Performance wise we need to lift. Get some sharpness and rhythm back into our game. No more fumbling

Forward pressure please. If i see the ball rebounding out of our forward 50 i'll lose my [censored]

ANB to find some kind of form. HE has not been good recently. Salem likewise. We need his accurate disposal off half back if we're to win a prelim or granny

I hope Trac's guardian angel let's nothing further happen to his injured leg

Need some real momentum before we take on the cats. That'll be a tough ask playing as we are 

Come on Dees. Produce your best in a final before the faithful. Remind the Cats and Swans what we're capable of

See you all at the G later

I've not heard the expression "total bottle jobs" before. I realise it's not intended to be complimentary, but what, exactly, does it mean? Is it a reference to being fakes (as in "bottle blonde") or something to do with having the qualities of a drunk person? Or something else?

Play like we did up here at the Gabba it will be a comfortable win and may give the coaches a chance to rest a couple in last quarter. Anything less it will be tight but we still win.

Tonight’s banner has a stunning pic of Lever, Maxy, Dogga and Tracc. It will look spectacular when raised. (I’m sure other teams’ cheer squads must be envious of our banners. We’re blessed to have in the DA a rusted-on Dees diehard who runs a printing company, and the quality of his work is next level.)

And to the left of the pic there’s written in huge letters: 

WE’RE NOT DONE YET!

I can’t remember exactly the wording on the flip side (even though I cut the letters out 🤭) but I do know it includes the words ‘unbeatable’ and ‘repeatable’ so one gets the gist of it. ❤️💙

Pretty sure it comes from english slang.  to 'bottle it', is to choke or lose your nerve. not only in sporting terms. ie. didn't have the nerve to ask a girl out

Not as confident as many, our recent form on the MCG is mediocre at best…hope we win but it will be close 

If you look at our mediocre MCG record since round 11, we've lost to Freo once, Sydney twice and Collingwood twice while beating Brisbane and Carlton once.

Meanwhile with regards to our interstate record of 7-0, 5 of those wins came against non finalists.

I think our average MCG record can be attributed to losing to high quality sides more so than the venue not suiting us as much. We had no issues winning our first 6 MCG against mostly mediocre clubs.

Why? The Queen lived a magnificent life. She achieved so much and died peacefully surrounded by family at age 96 in her favourite castle.

I can't think of a single one of us who wouldn't be happy with that ending. 

Death is an inevitable part of life, just like losing is in football. If you have a really successful period in football and it comes to an end, you make peace with it. The Queen's life and death is no different.

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. 
 

 

Hard to argue with that. I agree. Against Sydney we played boring, predictable football. Against Brisbane the game before we were more daring, moved the ball quicker, which leaves space for our smalls to get to ground balls and apply the pressure that won us a premiership.

Definitely. We would always do a show to both sides if we could. But even if it’s not raining or not too windy, if the grass is wet a show is not likely, which sucks because the pic side of it and/or the non-advertisement side is always facing the race. Therefore not everyone gets to appreciate how amazing it is.

Kozzie to go to ballistic

Hopefully, Kozzie will be able to stay goalside instead of being (almost) the sole forward running here, there and everywhere (out of range of his excellent kicking) playing the whole defensive pressure contributor across the forward line.

    TRAINING: Friday 19th April 2024

    They are out for a run just as it starts raining. It didn't last long, ended up a reasonable session weather wise.  Light duties, BBB, rehab Farris-White, Melky, Salem and Spargo, all with private trainers. They are all playing soccer, huge amount of noise. 36-40 (difficult to get a count) in the main squad, biggest I've seen it in ages. Choco is barking out the orders. Goody has intense body language as he observes. Bowey in a lime green cap (no contact), and in the sim

    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.
