Posting Unsubstantiated Rumours on this Website is Strictly Forbidden
  • 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 think Jordon injured his foot or ankle. 

Bowey is the really interesting one.  My theory is that in the Geelong game they rag dolled him and was dropped so that he could bulk up.  Will come back bigger and stronger next year.

Yes he got injured in the VFL up in Brisbane where he racked up 35 possessions in Casey’s only loss for the year. Someone stood on his foot late in the game unfortunately. He was the Medi sub the night before.😪

I watched some of the stream but it dragged on too long. I was also disappointed that they didn't show more of the audience as I was hoping to see @WalkingCivilWar.

I reckon she would have been easily identifiable . 

A deranged looking ranga with an autograph book the size of The Pink Pages and blinding  all with the constant flash of irritating  selfies.

Appears more like Mrs T-Rex to me.

A case of 'he who protests too much...' perhaps.😉

Maybe you and @WalkingCivilWar should get a room! 

Reckon she will de-friend me for that...😬

Top 5 comprised of a Pick 2, 3 and 4.
F/S that would have gone top 5 and a bloke traded in with pick 6

Would be nice to have a pick at the pointy end again this year

Yeah but how is Taylor going with picks in the 50s!! That’s where the real mettle grumble grumble fart!1!1

No doubt. Providing he doesn’t get injured he will win most years. Coming into his prime and already the best is I’ve seen behind Ablett jr.

His in close work at the stoppage is really like nothing I've ever seen.

You make tough decisions early so you don’t end up doing a Collingwood who will be paying around $700K next for players not on their list

its clear we don’t see Hunt as part of our plans and the coaches expect Bowie etc to replace him next year 

While that's probably correct the fact remains Bowie needs 10 kgs and an extra 10 % of pace if he's going to be a long term player.

Bowey has a high footy IQ and is an excellent kick remember what they said about Diesel Williams to short, too slow.. he showed them.!!!

I don't dispute his " weapons";Spargo has a high footy IQ as well,that's why I have them waxing up forward.

The Diesel I recall weighed 88 kgs,had a low centre of gravity so you couldn't ragdoll him and his handball is more like and actual accurate Trac kick into the forward line than Clarrie's extraordinary extractions from under a pack.

I just reckon Bowey needs 10 kg's and that's a lot

Aaaand… de-friended. 
 

JK Luci! I’d never de-friend you. For starters, we still have our plan to co-parent Jayden once the adoption papers are signed. Right? RIGHT???

You didn’t look hard enough you old letch. I was hard to miss for I was a “vision in white” according to my neighbour who’s 89yo and blind in one eye and has impaired vision in the other. But I’m taking it!!!

And no autograph book. That’s only for training sessions, and it’s a guernsey. Autograph books went the way of the dinosaur aeons ago. But guilty as charged re the unceasing selfie opps. At one point I got a selfie with Kozzy and his cuz Chase Burgoyne taken by Ricky Lever (!) such was the abundance of willing selfie participants. And when I say “willing” I mean “will do anything to get rid of her.”

You mean like Caleb Daniel 170cm and 71kg, 153 games so far at 26yo?

    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
