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.

Can't see past the pay wall.

...sorry couldn't help myself.

All the best to Ben and really do hope he's turned the corner.  Drug addiction is a [censored] of a thing.

The Perth Demons story is very similar to the Melbourne Demons.  A once powerful club, that completely lost its way and has continue to do so since the mid 70s.

This is either going to go completely pear shaped or make the club half relevant again.

The club has always found a way to lose its way.  There board looks to be very strong now, a few ex players, would be worried about CEO though

Good luck to him in his rehabilitation but those Perth Demons are something else. Their colours are red and black, not red and blue.

Having gone out with an addict 20+ years ago (and being unaware of it for the first few months) i will watch this one closely. 
one doesn’t stop being an addict, the situation is managed 

Yep .... I'd wouldn't want him hangin' with the players after hrs.

Perth was a powerhouse in the 70s, but since they lost the potential-three-peat 1978 grand final in a major upset (in pouring rain, despite Bosustow starring for the Demons, and with Perth favourite son Barry Cable captain-coaching East Perth) they have been the league's underachiever.

Westside is Bestside, or so says the graffiti on the wall of a tunnel near mine. Clearly graffitied by an Eastern suburbs graffitist. 

I’m ok, Tim. (Thank you for asking 💕) Three weeks ago a fox got into my backyard and killed our beloved chooks. Every one of them, gone.

They say time heals all wounds, and who am I to argue? Only it seems time is taking the long way around, sometimes even standing still, or so it seems.

Thank you, Daisy. Absolutely heartbroken and still grieving. But I’ll bounce back. I always do. The whole healing thing is just taking its sweet time, is all.

I did wonder...

Maybe a new brood, in due course, will help the healing gently along?

'Landers all, I'm struck by the personal stories that surface here and, most particularly, by the preparedness of the storytellers to be vulnerable to strangers (though maybe we're not strangers here, so much?) Though one story might seem less, or more, momentous than another to we readers, we respect (I hope) that it is the teller's experience that sets the moment.

Defs not strangers. Demonland is like family to me. Dysfunctional, contradictory, nit-picky, loud and annoying. You know, just like any other family. 🙃

And yes, Tim. Planning on getting a new clutch of baby girls sooner rather than later. Just gotta implement fox-proof measures. I thought having them sleep in the house every night was enough but sadly someone forgot to tell this particular fox he’s nocturnal. I’m thinking with the next hatchlings I may have to keep them in the house 24/7. Then I really will be crazy chook lady. 😁 JK I’d let them out daily for 30 minutes under strict supervision, and in bespoke little suits of armour (stop laughing!).

Just so as not to stray too far from the subject at the heart of this site, that being the mighty Dees, three of my chooks were aptly named:  Febes 1, Febes 2 and JH (Hunty up until he left, then Harmesy 😊). With the next lot my son has gifted me naming rights for all. Watch this space. ❤️💙

Thank you so much, Jules. 💕 

Re names, my non-footy-loving son said how about NOT ALL Demons-related names? How about at least one non-Demons name? I said sure, I actually have one in mind. I told him the name. He said “Maisie, yeah I like that name!”
I’ll let him believe it’s Maisie until he ever sees it written and discovers it’s Maysie. 😁

    TRAINING: Friday 19th April 2024

    They are out for a run just as it starts raining. It didn't last long, ended up a reasonable session weather wise.  Light duties, BBB, rehab Farris-White, Melky, Salem and Spargo, all with private trainers. They are all playing soccer, huge amount of noise. 36-40 (difficult to get a count) in the main squad, biggest I've seen it in ages. Choco is barking out the orders. Goody has intense body language as he observes. Bowey in a lime green cap (no contact), and in the sim

    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.
