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.

Poor Schache.  He's been a Demon for five minutes and has already assumed the mantle of whipping boy.

Let's reserve judgement until we see how he goes next year.

Rubbish!

It started when the proposal was first raised. No one gets 5 minutes start here.  😁

1. Getting more possessions than the Weid could ever imagine without half-heartedness and preservation imperatives.

2. Usefully leading for the ball in multiple directions - his kicking is terrific from all angles.

3. Taking the odd mark in the danger zone with 'thinking' teammates doing their best to block/occupy/negate opponents.

4. Scoring a few more than Weid could ever accomplish.

5. Staying in the critical zone for effective responses - not running out of the way of potential harm, nor standing still to keep 'safe'.

6. Bringing the ball to ground for the smalls' skillsets.

and when did Schache do any of the above examples?

Status quo maybe. 
 

Maybe the change to our forward half game could result in a dramatic improvement?

Weids certainly couldn’t benefit from our high balls. 

Not many blokes do benefit from high balls. Lower the eyes, lower the passing, I say.

I lean towards SWYL's thinking on this bloke.  At least I won't have to worry about him living up to my expectations as I have none. 

Would rather have kept the Weed. At least he knows the game plan 

It's changing so Josh can learn the brand new 2023 fast paced and quick running with ball movement so a busy Xmas for Josh.

For an MFC career that has lasted 5 minutes he's still done better than most!

pick 37 is okay but Schache is not. The recruiters must have dropped some mean acid this morning for brekky. Bizarre beyond belief.

Where is Cale Morton ?

No he is a F4th , we still have 37 up our sleeve, he has cost us nothing and we picked up 37 for Weid.

    TRAINING: Saturday 2nd March 2024

    On the eve of the 2024 Season I ventured down to Gosch's Paddock for one of the final preseason training session before we head up to Sydney to take on the Swans. Here are my observations from the training session. The session was light and despite it being a Saturday was akin to a Monday/Tuesday session following a regular season weekend match as we played on Wednesday night and the boys had a couple of days off after the Practice Match prior to the season proper. Main Squad: May,

    ROUND ZERO by Whispering Jack

    The Coodabeen Champions have called it a day after more than forty years on various radio stations across Melbourne. When the lads chose the theme from the spaghetti western "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" as their signature tune, the game was uncomplicated with little time for scientific strategy. Summertime was for easy living and games of cricket, footy teams assembled in February, played practice matches in March and the season opened in mid-April. In their time, the Coodabeens saw changes

    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
