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.

Abstemious… one of my favourite words since it contains all the vowels and they’re in order. Same as my friend whose surname is Alexiou. 

As for @Bitter but optimistic, methinks it’s more a case of bitter and less so optimistic.😜

It’s funny, when I read one of BBO’s posts, I always “hear” the voice of the eunuch in game of thrones.

You didn’t watch Warner Brothers Cartoons?

At least 40 years before Homer and Monty

Homer and Marge. Simpsons debuted in primetime in 1991. Minus 40 years, plus subtract a few for working memory: Calculate your age as 96? Of course I watched Warner Brothers cartoons. Sophie Lee alone is considered to have caused a $64 billion budget deficit due to workers rushing home.

Mine is a reflection of my very, one could even say extreme,  one eyed view of footy - but I do remain quite surprised that neither I when I set it up, nor any of the several other pedants on this site, have picked up on my misspelling.

Alexis Georgiou probably contains all the vowels you will ever need and in which way you choose to order them.

Your sense of humour is somewhat different 

Foghorn Leghorn would have fun with you on the farm

Simpsons actually debuted in 1989 and originated on The Tracey Ulman show as 5 minute shorts

One can never have too many vowels (looking at you, Polish language). I reckon Polish Scrabble must be the opposite to ours. Zs and Ys and Ks would be worth jack and the vowels would be worth the most.

You’re possibly of Polish descent Skort, so you should start to learn the language. This’ll give you an idea of how you’ll go…

@Slartibartfast Gotta know where this name comes from!

I used to be Baghdad Bob and before that Deefan.  I changed my name to Baghdad Bob when we were shocking, mainly under Neeld.  Many misinterpreted why I chose the name Baghdad Bob aka Muḥammad Saʿīd Al-Ṣaḥḥāf (comical ali, not chemical ali). He  was the information minister for Iraq during the invasion by the US led coalition and despite the terrible situation of Iraq at the time Baghdad was waveringly positive. I felt that we also needed to remain positive and hence the name. I kept it for a long time but when we won the GF last year the need for BB was past.

Slartibartfast, as has been pointed out, is probably my favourite character from The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy and he's famous for saying "I'd much rather be happy than right, any day". It seems a good philosophy to me.

A productivity deficit maybe mate? Not sure Sophie Lee would see government spending outstrip taxation. Strange metaphor, but I like it!

Hi Skort. Would that be the same Sophie Lee that played the sax in the band Freaked Out Flower Children? I saw them a couple of times on a Sunday night at the Cherry Tree in Cremorne back in the day. I think she was dating the lead singer, Gumpy, before she dated Mick Molloy.

You lost me at Psychopathic Cowpoke. And pray tell the censored word after “chicken” is not what I think it might be. 
Maybe I’ll revisit this album one day when I’m bound and gagged and can’t leave the dungeon, for example.

    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.
