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.

Good shout.

We’ve played at MCG or Marvel in the final round just twice between 2016-2023. The rest have either been interstate or in Geelong.

To be fair this is balanced out by playing at home most years in round 1. I think we've only ever played interstate twice in round 1.

Absolutely fair call.

Between 1999 and 2023 we’ve been scheduled to play interstate once and that only game was in 2020 against West Coast in an empty stadium, which is very fortunate.

Although in 2022 and 2023 no Victorian club was fixtured interstate for round 1.

Oh, it’s real. Last year I went there and we were ushered to a parking spot whereat the attendant asked if we were Geelong members (despite being head to toe red n blue with flags n banners in the back seat). We said no and he said that’ll be $15. Curious, I asked him why he needed to know if we were Geelong members to which he replied, “it’s only $10 for Geelong members.” Walking towards the entrance I asked a few Geelong fans what they’d paid and they all said $10. 

Thanks. I can' brleive this is allowed.

First question to Attendant:  " By what authority?"  He / she will have no idea.  Then turn off the engine till they offer $10 entry.

Dangerfield going for Olympic gold in the high dive. He attempted a reverse triple somersault with a forward pike after the merest suggestion of contact, but only managed a belly wacker.  The umpires were suitably impressed and awarded him a free kick. 

 

 

 

Plus Dangerfield appealing for a free kick every single time he doesn’t win the ball….

I just assumed it was allowed. No one else who’d paid $15 had an issue but that may’ve been because they didn’t know Geelong members were only paying $10.

Exactly. I suspect this is the same legal context as the G. A Crown land reserve run by the MCGTrust. No way can the dees and tiges vary entry fees to that precinct.

 It only happens because its gone unchallenged. What we do is coordinate all entry points on game day to have a car load of dees supporters at each entry point simultaneously and call the bluff. 

And have the Herald sun on stand by.

Anyway, In the first instance I plan to write a formal complaint to the Kardinia Park Trust and seek the authority and/or justification for this approach.

Were you parking just in the general grassy areas surrounding the stadium and from which road did you enter? Moorabool st or Latrobe Terrace?

This club has always  been elitist now the new stadia have been built and good luck affording the seat prices for ordinary geelong folk.

the army should let the club know, who could raise it with geelong.  shocking behaviour

it doesn't seem to be a member benefit either, just who you support and with no proof

Not sure, Daise. I’m guessing had we said yes to the question of are we Geelong members, we might’ve then been asked for proof of membership. But it might be like at the Sporting Globe. We get the members’ discount but don’t get asked to show proof of membership. The same for the Demon Shop.

Further to my outrage the following is the relevant clause under the Act which empowers the Trust to charge fees to a major event.  (The Kardinia Park Trust Act 2016:

"....KARDINIA PARK STADIUM ACT 2016 - SECT 38

Powers in relation to agreements and arrangements

The power conferred on the Trust by an event management declaration to enter into agreements or arrangements with an event organiser may include agreements or arrangements relating to—

        (a)     the organisation or conduct of the Kardinia Park event; or

        (b)     the occupation and use by the event organiser of any part of the area to which the declaration applies; or

        (c)     the fees to be charged by the event organiser for entry into the area to which the declaration applies and the payment of fees by the event organiser to the Trust...."

Thus the fees are set with no necessary power by the event organiser (AFL in this case - and would they discriminate against Away members. I don't think so)  to vary.    I suspect the reply will be that the parking fee is set at $15.00 and cats fans receive a discount.  If so, then the discounted amount MUST be paid to the Trust by the club, or its a true dicriminatory process for Away team members by the Trust for which they are not empowered. Their opening headline on their Trust website is:...... .

 

WE PROUDLY RUN THIS STATE ASSET ON BEHALF OF THE PEOPLE OF VICTORIA.

The people of Victoria is a key Crown land principle in the State.

I'll seek a repsonse on behalf of the members and fans  of 17 other AFL clubs.

We were parked on the grassy surrounds. I wasn’t the driver but since I paid for parking it was me who interacted with the parking guy. I asked the driver which road we used to enter the hellhole and she sent me this…

    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.
