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.

I’ve told this story here before but that doesn’t stop me from telling it again, amirite?!  Heads up, it’s a long one. 

 I chose the Dees as a 7yo within months of emigrating to Australia. And that was as one of eight siblings, the other seven of whom had adopted Carlton, the team for them to the death  (and still is).

The first time I saw Melbourne play was vs. Carlton, of course, and I don’t quite know why but I was instantly drawn to this team. They caught my eye, and before long, my heart. But I didn’t tell a soul. I especially couldn’t tell my brothers, in particular my eldest brother with whom I was extremely close. I knew it would break his old dark navy blue heart to discover that my heart was beating true for the red and the blue. So for a couple of decades I masqueraded as a Blues devotee. I only got to watch the Dees twice a year when they (we?) played the Blues. 

My older brothers took me to every single Carlton H&A match, countless finals and three grand finals (all Carlton). I wore a duffel coat with Bruce (11) Doull, I had Carlton posters on my bedroom wall, I went to training and met the players, all those things a proper diehard does.

This continued until August 2000 when my brother tragically died, at which time I “came out” as a Dees supporter. One of my brothers to this day doesn’t talk to me because of this. With hindsight I guess it was a bit insensitive that I adorned my house in red and blue leading up to the 2000 GF.  I came home one day and he’d left a note on my (red and blue) front door which said something to the effect of “His body isn’t even cold yet, and you’ve tarted up your house in those revolting colours like a circus tent.” 

Anyways that might explain why I’m so overtly (and loudly and proudly) passionate and devoted to our Club. The dam walls had burst and I could finally adore them with unbridled passion and now there’s no stopping it. 😁

PS: Told you it was a long story 😉 

PPS: I lied. We went to every H&A match EXCEPT for Windy Hill because feral Ess thugs + small child = potential bodily harm, or worse. 😬 

Quite the tale!  I am so sorry to hear about your brother, and then the subsequent family [censored].   Believe it or not I was 7 when I immigrated to australia (what can I say, I just had enough of my parents and needed a new start). I literally read a magazine on the 747 and there was an article on Jimmy and Sean Wight.  I figured there was only one team in Melbourne so obviously I would support them! First game I watched in full was the 88 GF. First game when i started to love footy was the 89 GF.  Sorry my tale is not quite as romantic

What is it about Dublin that sees 7yos bailing on their parents and making their way to Australia?! 😁

Your story is great Dub, if for no other reason than you were reading a magazine at the age of seven. 🤩

I remember now. I once chased down and tackled the hottest young property in our league.

Also took a spectacular one-handed grab not just once but twice. People said ooh-ahh. 

I also once kicked the ball into my former best friend's head and scored off the rebound. 

He was like Lenny Hayes. Once kicked and marked his own ball. Umps didn't what to do.

See this? We all should take note. You dig deep enough and the memories of the times you excelled rise to the top. Keep doing this and in time they’ll be at the forefront of your mind, obscuring the memories of the times you messed up. 

PS: “People said ooh ahh” ??!!  And you’re a writer. Okaaay.

Changed “y’all” to “we all” since I need to heed this advice as much as anyone else.

I need time to get used to Skort, I did like Skuit. 

Multiple choice question as to where the username skort comes from: 

When your team scores a goal, but in a really clumsy way, and you're still a little unhappy about it. Sure we skort, but . . .

A northern Swedish snack traditionally eaten at around at around 11am or sunrise which doesn't contain real meatballs.

A portmanteau of Scott and rort: we just skorted an extra car park in our wealthy, marginally held seat. Yay us.   

A shortening of escort, when it's not the fun ones. e.g. the bouncer who drags you out of a club by your collar.

All I can say is Jibroni is nothing to do with following the MFC. Maybe it is time for a change.

I reckon it's good to have a few non Dees related usernames to balance these out so you should keep Jibroni!

E.g mine has nothing to do with the Dees but was a throwaway line I overheard a posh guy say about him getting sunburnt.

Now that trade month is dusted and we need to wait us a few more weeks for some further hope cookies, I thought it might be the opportune time to start a new thread on something that has occupied my mind for the past six or so minutes. Usernames.

Q1: have you misinterpreted other posters' usernames without reflection?

(Follow up Q2: where and why and what and who did you derive your username from?)

I’ll get the ball gently rolling. (First easy question though: do any of the many ‘Dr.s’ on Demonland hold a PhD. or practice medicine?)

More specifically, on reflection.

Nasher: always thought it was something to do with being an admin and gnashing teeth, but probably just someone having the surname Nash.

Cassiew: read it as someone who considers themselves a nut, as in cashew. But likewise probably just a person named Cassandra, whose surname starts with ‘w’.

Pennant St Dee: always read in my head as Pennant ‘Saint’ Dee. Pretty obviously refers to a street though, somewhere in Perth likely. Google says such a thing exists.

mo64: A dude named Moe or referring to modus operandi 1964’?

DubDee/Sydee/Edm. Is it music related? Always picture you all in the different rooms of a rave.

binman: still can’t help but connect with the strident support of Oscar McDonald, as in Oscar the Grouch = bin-man. Name probably came about well before OMac ever walked into our club.

Demonstone? Is this Demon-stone like something out of Game of Thrones, or Demon’s tone where he or she forgot the apostrophe?

DeeSpencer: just assume is a huge fan of Jake Spencer like me.

My username is the same one I use for every website that requires one. Those with any botanical knowledge will recognise that it is a genus of Australian native plant in the heath family Ericaceae, reflecting one of my long held passions: native flora.

Incidentally, the Latin translation means "white beard", which has become quite appropriate as I near the half century in age.

    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.

    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.
