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 thought about that a lot over the years too. I’ve been on Demonland for a really long time, but the only members I’ve ever personally spoken to are Andy and WJ, @Grapeviney@Jaded No More, @old55 and @Slartibartfast, and all only fairly anecdotally, and a really long time ago in the case of the latter three. Nevertheless many of the usernames here feel familiar to me and I feel like I know the personality attached, even if it’s a mostly imagined one based on what they write. It’s a community here. We all know each other, even if it’s a very curated version of ourselves. Every now and again I’ll see an old thread where a name I haven’t seen in ages comes up, and I see they haven’t visited in years and I wonder what happened?

Occasionally I also morbidly wonder if anyone on Demonland would know or care if I did die. Given I have no personal connection to anyone on here the news may never filter through. How depressing!

I'd definitely care. Along with @Whispering_Jack and @Demonland you're the engine of the site Nasher.

I've made some very valuable lifelong friendships from Demonology/Demonland and the community has enhanced my life.

The problem with mine is that there’s also @Heart Beats True who posts quite a bit, and often makes well considered points.

It’s really annoying. I’m trying to build a reputation as the town [censored], and it’s killing my brand recognition.

Question: when I click on people’s profile, there’s a little circular arrow that shows their name history. Does everyone see that, or do I only see that as admin? I used to have a non-admin account to check this stuff, but haven’t used it in too many years now.

Walked through it on your profile with this guidance. Worked.

I had beers with you back in 2009 after a NAB game in Launceston. Roughead kicked to last goal of the game for us to lose by 3 points. I was with Lukey26 from Demonology.

Same goes for me in having enhanced my life. I’d say it’s also amplified my love and fanaticism for the club.

A little off-topic I know, but since when has that ever stopped me, amirite?! 

One day I got to thinking about how if someone dies suddenly their online contacts may never know. To this end I had a convo with my middle son. I said, “if I was to die suddenly, don’t worry about FB, nor Insta, nor any of the band forums I’ve ever been on, there’s just one thing I want you to do online. I want you to tell my friends on Demonland that I’m dead. You don’t have to create an account, just log in under my account and let them know.”

He said, “so, to be clear… if you die you want me to log into your fan forum, as you, to tell them you’re dead. Okaaay” 😳

So I said “ok then, create your own account for the purpose. You could call yourself SOWCW as in Son Of WCW.” He said, “nah, I’d be Walking Civil Unrest, and he (points to his younger brother) can be Walking Minor Spat.”  😂

Yep, we put the FUN in dysFUNctional!

Not my area, but I learnt through a friend of mine (not due to a death thankfully)  that there is a sizable (and growing) "social media after death" industry, helping families reclaim passwords/ownership of accounts, post tributes/convert profiles into inactive accounts, advise online communities and friends of the situation.

It definitely isn't something we really think about or plan for, but with many of us having increasing online presence, and communities, it is probably something we need to think about with respect to "having our affairs in order" and probably from a younger age than for other things.

Yes, I recall! Didn’t realise you were still about on here.

I sat with Lukey26 at that game. I’m still (just) in touch with her. She was @WhateverItTakeson here, don’t think she’s active though.

This frivolous thread went sideways with emotions and stuff. Original guess as to what I was before I became Skort: 

A skirt and suit fashion ensemble, pronounced as a .portmanteau?

A small Namibian boat, pronounced something like ‘skoyt’ [censored] Elon Musk. 

A deliberately bad transliteration of the word for crazy in Khmer: sh-goot?

A play on the words ‘skew-it?

Some or all of the above?

Whoa, way to bring a [censored] n giggles thread to a screeching halt, Nash. 😳

JK. 😁You bring up really good points. I’ve met a lot of ‘Landers in person, mainly since joining the DA. Putting faces to usernames or avatars is pretty cool. Sometimes a little unsettling *cough* @binman looks exactly like his avi, only way more 1970s if that’s even possible *cough*

PS: I for one would care very much if you died. I probs wouldn’t know, though. But I’d care all the same should you ever just disappear. 😊

Yep read quite a lot. Fantastic site.

Lukey was terrific. Loved the Dees.

I still talk with Demonology people. Things were pretty active last September.

    ICEBREAKER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons have broken the ice for season 2024 with a pulsating come-from-behind victory over Port Melbourne in which it took the lead for the first time at the halfway mark of the final quarter. The game played in mild Autumn conditions in neutral territory at Kinetic Park, Frankston, never reached great heights in standard but it proved gripping in character at the end at the Casey Demons overcame the Borough to win by 15 points after trailing badly early in the second half.  P

    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.
