  • 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.

We won this against all odds, really. Nothing was in our favour. Nothing was going our way. It almost seemed like a concerted effort by all to stymie everything we did. We were given no help, no advantage and were going into today as massive underdogs, not because of the footy we’re playing but because everything was stacked against us. So this win is even bigger and better than it appears.

So bloody proud of this team. They’re most deserving of a Flag. And… they’ve got one!!!! Awesome rewards for awesome efforts. ❤️💙

First para nails it for me WCW.  Blind-sided frees guesses by umps in first 1/4 had me worried about their standard.

We got nothing.

But.... we had Daisy ( apologies to others)  7 disposals, 6 contested. How lucky as a club to have a Gawn/Pearce leadership combo.

Someone should Have told Lions skipper and the BoG player that the Dees won, not them and the skipper was clearly reading what was meant to be her victory speeeh. Weird and unclassy on their behalf.

Thoroughly deserved by the Dees though.

Adelaide had 4 players in the All Australian side including the vice captain. 

They had the leading goal kicker of the year

4 players in the AFLW U22 team

Starcevich was the coach of the year. 
Ally Anderson won the League B & F. (Or as I like to cal it, the Daisy Pearce medal) 

Emily Bates won the same award 6 months ago

They got to play at home today and bought their their own umpires

But we proved the old adage that a champion team will beat a team of champions. 
And we are the CHAMPION TEAM!!!

They had 5 in the 22 under 22 to our 2 as well.

Tahlia Gillard didn’t even make the squad. 

Today, she shut Wardlaw completely out of the game.

I thought that was Gillard’s best game.

Agreed. She’s been very good with the occasional stuff up all home and away season. Probably found the pressure a little hot the first 2 finals but came in to the games. Today she was on from the start.

Awesome win in probably the highest pressure game I've seen from this comp. We stood up after Brisbane threw everything they had at us in the first quarter. So proud of this group and happy we could do it for Daisy and Paxman, who I hope will go around again next year.

I get that it’s hard delivering a speech after losing but surely you just keep it straight to the point: congrats to the winners, acknowledge your teammates and staff, quick thanks to the sponsors, and thanks to the fans. Should be no longer than 2-3min.

It dragged to the point I switched off and only came back for Daisy’s speech (which went only as long as it needed to). 

I still can’t believe I’ve seen Demons teams with 3 premierships in the last 16 months. Bloody proud.

16 games played for 15 wins including a flag. That’s Boweyesque! She must be thinking this footy caper is pretty good.

Ive said it previously but I reckon she will be in the All Australian squad by the end of next season and then entrenched in the team after that. If she could become better overhead she could anything.

I was working today so had to rely on SEN’s coverage of the game😱

Whomever  thought Zorko could pass as an eloquent expert comment’s man was obviously high on pickle juice or some other concoction.. he was embarrassingly inept and inappropriate, and seemingly unable to string 2 sensible words together.

From what we've witnessed of him on field, I'm not surprised. Not a captains Ahole.

In hindsight the build-up suited us perfectly. All the talk was about the Lions. Took the pressure off us and heaped it onto them. They were not at their best today at all. We shut them down and they had no response. I think they got complacent. Delighted we beat them after all the carry on with the venue (which looked pretty good  i have to say. Just not enough capacity for a granny)

We've been winning premierships for fun recently but none at the G. Really want us to rectify that situation next season

    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
