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.


AFLW: Rd 07 vs Western Bulldogs

Perfect from our girls, wonderful performance, great win. 
Umpiring woefully biased. I’d be putting a please explain in on the constant calling of Goldrick’s handballs as throws, there may have been one or two but they haven’t called it on anyone else when they’ve been clearer and worse, clear bias.

Excellent performance. Moved the ball really well, forward connection and taking marks

Good percentage boost. Left a little on the table but no matter

Suns, Eagles and bombers to round out the season. Nice soft run into finals and hopefully we can finish top with some clinical performances

Great to see Bannan finding some form

Hoping for a draw next week between the Crows and Lions

Go Dees

I reckon this is our year. We have made great changes in the off season to our game plan.  Stinnear etc should be commended.  We have real attacking strength now.  new guns in the midfield, great run off HB and willingness to make mistakes taking the game on

Adelaide and Lions are bloody good teams but I reckon we get it done for Daise

Lil seems to have developed some real strength over the ball. Now she's starting to break tackles, and her kicking is as good as any of our mids.

The holy trinity of Hanks, West and Purcell is a joy to watch. And Goldy is just amazing; that tackle on Blackburn. Oof.

Is Harris the best ruck in the comp? I think so - some of the things she does in the ruck remind me a lot of Luke Jackson's follow up work. And she'd probably beat him in a one-on-one in the forward line. What a string to add to her bow.

The Pearce Harris ruck duo is the best in the comp by a mile

2 bounces from Mackin. Missed the kick into the corridor earlier but not afraid to take it on. I think she's going to a good player for us

Mackin burnt a couple of times by teammates when she was out in the clear and in best position.

Need to fix this up, I hope Mick is on top of it.

I feel like she has been progressively getting better throughout the season. Maybe reading the party better, improving positioning, getting a bit of confidence. It wouldn't surprise me if she has a bit of a break out game later this season, just puts it all together and gets a lot of it.

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!!!!

Hate to tell you this but Cranbourne is close to the worst suburb on the east/south/south east of Melbourne.

Where on earth do you live that Cranbourne looks 'good'?  I know it is 'west' but...

    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.

    DEMONLAND: Good evening, Demon fans and welcome to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast … It’s been a beautiful last day of September and how sweet it is to bring you our coverage of all things that matter about the great Demon resurgence which we’ve seen over the past six or seven months. How our team overcame a turbulent off season and a disappointing start to 2024 on a humid night in Sydney, turned our detractors into believers and then ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    TRAINING: Sunday 7th April 2024

    Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin ventured down in the rain to Gosch's Paddock for the Demon Family Series April School Holiday Open Training session. Not such a good morning, weather wise. As I arrived, it starting raining, settled into watching some Victory players have a kick around. The MFC squad come out as the rain abated, they had wide smiles as the walked down the roped corridor. Plenty of joy from the supporters towards them, kids everywhere, maybe about 500 to a 1000 of us.
