  • 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.


AFLW: Rd 07 vs Western Bulldogs



Recommended Posts

This should be a tougher match against the Bulldogs 3:10 Sunday October 9 at Casey. The Bulldogs have just come off 2 losses after being undefeated in the first for weeks while Melbourne have lost 1 game for the year and that was to Brisbane. The Dees beat Fremantle by 30 points last week while the Bulldogs lost by a point to Geelong.

I expect Sherriff to be back this week and that should be the only change.

 

Possible team 

B: Birch, Gillard

HB: Goldrick, Gay, Heath

C: Mithen, Purcell, Paxman

HF: Hore, Zanker, Bannan

F: D.Pearce, Harris

FOLL: L.Pearce, West, Hanks

IC: Sherriff, Lampard, Mackin, Duffy, Fitzsimon

The doggies have had a soft run. they've beaten GWS, Freo, Port and the Hawks who are all siting in the bottom 6. They've been beaten by North and Geelong

We'll beat them handy I reckon.

  • Demonland changed the title to AFLW: Rd 07 vs Western Bulldogs

Hoping for a win to make Katie’s 50th memorable! 🤩

And not just a win, but a belting since our percentage needs to ⬆️
 

Fun fact: our 2022 Demon Army members caps were made by Graeme Yeats. 😃 Well not by him per se, although who knows he may loves him a bit of millinery from time to time, but by his company.

The sun’s shining and minimal chance of rain forecast for this arvo. It’s windy af but that’s better than raining.  

An observation…

I rarely have occasion to visit the eastern suburbs and haven’t in the longest time. The stark contrast between here and where I live is astounding! I mean, where are all your meth-heads at? And I’ve yet to see even one person walking around wrapped in a doona (dual purpose- warm bedding by night and warm cape by day). And y’all’s shoplifters selling their wares, where are they? Haven’t seen anyone sitting cross legged on the footpath selling 3-packs of Bonds jocks for $5 a pack. Do your ne’er-do-wells observe the Sabbath or something? I’m also having to adjust to walking around freely, not having to be mindful of avoiding treading on used syringes! I feel like I’m on another planet. 

LOL I just saw some other people here at Cranbourne station obvs also headed to today’s game. They’re in Bulldogs gear and have the exact same discombobulated look as I do. Fellow westies, for sure. 😁

 

GO DEES!!!!

    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
