  • 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.

6.  Kozzie - super clean all night, pressure 1st class all night.  4 snags for a small forward... noice!

5.  Gawn - just everywhere, sticking hands in everywhere to spoil/flick ball around etc.  Desperation off the charts.

4.  Tracc - Bit of a coin toss between him & Gawn.  When Tracc decides to take it up a notch look out.  Not many can go with him.

3.  Gus - a few fumbles in the 1st half.  Made ammends and then some in the second.

2.  Rivers - Great run and drive off HB.  Solid all night

1.  Ben Brown - got to plenty of contests.  Took some nice clunks including a couple on the lead.  Some clutch goals.  4 is a decent haul!

Apologies... Bowser, Lever, Tomo, Petty & Spargoat

Gawn really played a complete game. He was a threat offensively and defensively to the Bulldogs all night.  His capacity to push back and either fill a hole or play genuine one-on- one meant that we could cover May's absence. Watching him live at the ground is a real lesson in what it takes to be a genuinely elite big man at this level.  English is a good ruckman who played a solid game but he got schooled by Max in work rate and effort, as well as craft.

The votes are in and mine wouldn’t impact the final standings. As far as I can see there are no votes for Bowser and only one mention of him and perhaps rightly so given the others in front of him but there is no player in the team I feel more comfortable with when ball is in hand and he is so clean. This kid is a jet. 
 

Shout out to Kade Chandler. He’s now a good AFL player and not a perhaps player. When he settles in front of goal we’ve got another beauty. Judd McVee is also going to be very hard to drop when Salo comes back. Jason Taylor, you’re a genius!

Good summary Joeboy, don’t always agree but love the thread.

Sorry, this started out to be a comment on Bowser and no votes but mushroomed!

A final word on Max. Best ruckman I have seen ....... ever.  Can do it all. A great captain.

No wonder he is filling a wardrobe with AA jackets.

Gawn, epic, Hawthorn 2017, / Prelim 2021 like

Trac, Beast, so strong and made others better the way he draws and rides a tackle.

Lever, Totally on, one of his best red and blue performances 

Pickett, Mr 1%, Was a Javelin missile, scared the Dogs like a tank full of Russians.

Oliver, Still amongst the best. 

Rivers, Is a serious player.

Sorry to many.

    SCRUTINY & RESILIENCE by Whispering Jack

    If the week when preseason training melds into scratch matches with other clubs, is the first marker for the beginning of a new season, then this has certainly been a torrid opener for the Melbourne Football Club in its campaign to remain a leading AFL premiership contender in 2024. The Demons were already under enormous scrutiny from the media and football’s fan base (including their own) after consecutive straight-sets finals exits, with Clayton Oliver’s well documented woes, the Joel Smi
