  • 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.

“Uncle” Greg Stafford. The bloke at the pub or BBQ gathering that loves to tell funny stories. Yes I’d hope he had a few bevvies because … well he’s no comedian !!  Just a query … is Stafford our “in need for dramatic improvement” forwards coach. My god, no wonder we kick to the deep forward pocket versus Cats/Swans/Magpies kicks to the hotspot on the top of the goalsquare. Hmmm. 
 

Anyway, congrats Tom Sparrow.  Spargo and ANB equal coaches runners up award.

You must be the most negative poster on demonland. Nothing is ever good.

Did you enjoy our premiership last year or not perfect enough?

Hahahah. Well, let’s clear the elephant in the room on that one…absolutely loved the Grand Final victory last year. Made a lifetime of supporting the Dees worth it…however, like many here, sitting on the couch in the middle of a 2 year lockdown was hardly how ai imagined it. It was very bitter sweet, if I’m being completely honest! I suppose this is why we were all so eager to see B2B. 
 

I think the only negativity I’ve shown is in regards to list management. I do not believe the list is as complete as it needs to be, if we are to go back to the top of the mountain. 2021 was the result of superior and supreme fitness, our depth wasn’t really tested. If you stand still, you go nowhere. I’m very eager to see what the club has planned this trade period. I am hopeful it’s not like last year, where the only experience we added was Dunstan, who played almost the whole season in the ressies. I hope Grundy/Gawn work out and one can become a damaging forward of some sort.

Just wanted to ask people's opinions on who will win this year's Keith "Bluey" Truscott Trophy for 2022?

There's an article about it found here: https://www.melbournefc.com.au/news/1229898

Personally, I think it will be either Clayton Oliver or Christian Petracca with Steven May as a dark horse to win it. I definitely think it will be pretty close this year!

My top 5 for the Demons Best & Fairest would be:

1) Clayton Oliver

2) Christian Petracca

3) Steven May

4) Max Gawn

5) Jack Viney

 

Anyway, please let me know who you think will be your top 5 in the Melbourne Demons Best & Fairest for 2022 ok?

 

The musical performers. They’ve been able to play a full 2 hour gig in the ‘short’ breaks.

My belief is we are in good shape. Whilst I understand your desire to add talent, I am a half full believer in Grundy. His best is way better than Jackson’s

we just need a big forward

    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

    TRAINING: Monday 12th February 2024

    Clayton Oliver was integrated back into the main training group today for the first time in 2024 after completing a 2km time trial. FriendlyFellow, a new Demonland Trackwatcher hit Gosch's Paddock on a hot and windy morning to bring you his observations of the session. Disclaimer: Saw on the socials they were down at Gosch’s Paddock so headed down for a quick look. Little to no presence of other track watchers and no current live thread, so as a first time contributor, giving what the peopl
