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.

Too many Suns players refused to fight it out. Mabior Chol standing while his opponent ran away from him, after getting the ball while Chol watched,as an example.

Run that game out and they could have won it. Very disappointing. 

...and wouldn't hit up the ball. Continually wanted to get the easy one over the back.

They really are struggling to get a consistent effort.

As for Freo...unless something changes they look like a bottom 6 team.

He was very poor last night. Didn;t contest at all. No second effort. Poor body language waving his hands in the air ala Jesse Hogan. If he was a teammate of mine i would have given him some direct feedback post-game.

And i should have said, Ben King wasn't much better.

The fact is that Freo were 4 goals down late in the 3rd quarter against probably the unfittest team in the comp who couldn’t run the game out. I found it amusing they were carrying on when they got the win, they won’t win too many if they keep playing like that.

And isn’t the Norwood oval just as pretty as a postcard picture?

At least he has a bit of an excuse...but he really might as well not been there.

Apart from one mark I'm not sure he did anything else.

Enough of their players have been in the system for a while now.

I think the issue is the work is being left to too few.

A lot of lazy footballers.

The AFL need to get Hardwick to GC next year. He's done at Richmond and they're heading down the Hawthorn route under him, but he could make a difference at the Suns.  I don't like him but then I don't like Clarkson or Lyon either and they are improving their new clubs.

Longmire would be even better but why would he leave the young Swans who are on the rise?

I don't think Simpson and Hinkley have a hard enough edge to fix what's wrong up there.

I agree. Hardwick or Buckley are the only true options for Gold Coast in my opinion. If poor old Yze went there he'd be chewed up and spat out.

Not sure what GC saw in Mac Andrew to draft him so high.

I wonder if we would have taken him if he got through to our first pick.

You’re sitting at the draft table in 2021 and you have a choice at pick 19 -

Andrew or van Rooyen.

What’s your choice?

Buckley is too smart to get back into coaching I think.

Anyway sorry to all for derailing the deathride. May it roll again next week.

1 minute ago, whatwhat say what said:

after 5 rounds, i had flagmantle having a 4-1 record 

so to have them sitting 2-3 is a win imo

tough run upcoming

And they barely got those two wins.

Overall Freo's display has been underwhelming to say the least.

Agree. They were ordinary, just beating an ordinary team, with plenty of passengers.

Is it just me, or has Rowell gone backwards? I saw him have no effect at all on the game.

No, not just you. I was saying the same with regard to Rowell to someone this morning.

He's not a big mid (similar size to Viney I would guess but Vin has much more mongrel) and the shoulder injuries seem to have set him back.

Not sure whether he will realise the promise of his early games.

Both him and O'Meara came into the game with such a blaze of glory but have become so run of the mill.

I guess that's why it's dangerous to heap expectations on a young player...Hogan and Daniher also come to mind.

His bro comes up in this year's draft. I believe he's in our academy, but not sure. We have 4 picks in the first 2 rounds, so maybe!

Did you think Jackson spent much time on ball?

It appeared to me they wanted to use the advantage they had with Darcy.

Be interested in the stats for his time on ball and centre bounce appearances.

I think Darcy was more on the ball than LJ and you are probably right, that they saw it as an advantage against a 2nd gamer.

Richmond were always overrated.

Amazing how many media ‘experts’ were talking up a Richmond renaissance in the preseason. Even after we belted them in a practice game, you had Whately carding on about it being like racehorse training and that Richmond were holding back and letting their stable mate show their hand. Complete nonsense

Ah Gil Favor, Rowdy Yates, Wishbone and Mushy.

Good show.

Hardwick would be good for them and maybe getting away from Victoria, with his new partner, would be good for him as well.

    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.

    DEMONLAND: Good evening, Demon fans and welcome to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast … It’s been a beautiful last day of September and how sweet it is to bring you our coverage of all things that matter about the great Demon resurgence which we’ve seen over the past six or seven months. How our team overcame a turbulent off season and a disappointing start to 2024 on a humid night in Sydney, turned our detractors into believers and then ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    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.
