  • 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.

Fitness tests this week for Gay, Duffy & Ivey. It would be great to get a game into Maddy Gay before the finals.

The team will know exactly what is required when they take the field on Saturday afternoon. With a 50 point differential going into the final round, I'm assuming we'll need to win by close to 15 goals to get top spot. Difficult, but not completely impossible if we take our chances and get some favourable conditions.

As much as it hurts to say it.......Go Pies!

A draw would be better as that means the filth don't win but we can still grab top spot.

I don’t think that is quite the case Poita.

The pies have quite a strong back half. If they can keep the Lions to 35 points while scoring 27 points themselves the Lions will end up with a percentage of exactly 250%

If we then can keep the Eagles to 9 points (which is what we have done the last 3 weeks) and score 41 ourselves we end up with a percentage of 250.5

In the above scenario if we score 1 point less both teams end up exactly on 250%. No idea what happens here but maybe the Lions get top spot because they beat us during the year??

I'm sorry that I got suspended. It was meant to be a joke I'll choose my words more carefully next time. Like the team. Gay is a huge in. Don't give up on top spot yet a 100 point margin could be on the cards if they play to there best. West Coast aren't much chop.

We need a 5 goal first quarter to get us going and keep the foot down from there

Looking like soggy conditions so it's a big big ask but you never know

The Eagles are terrible so we'll win big but I just can't see us winning by the 90 odd points required.

Dees by 60 points I reckon

Tough conditions with that wind. Doing well with us controlling the game, we hunt the ball and the opposition. Plenty of ball movement by hand, the women can trust each other as there is always an outside runner. We are wrestling in our forward 50 where the game has been played. Need to create a bit more space in there.

Paxman, Lampard, Hanks, West, Goldy, Lauren and Purcell leading the way.

    THAT WAS THE YEAR THAT WAS: 2023

    When the dust settled on 2023, the Melbourne Football Club coach Simon Goodwin lamented that the club knew it needed to score more to land a second premiership in the current era. He opined that an average of one more goal per game would have had his charges in football’s stratosphere.  Goodwin was right and, based on his team’s scoring opportunities, that extra goal (and more) was well within its grasp if only they had better converted their shots at goal. Take the side’s last six defeats
