  • 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.

The Richmond banner crew were great. Kinda felt sorry for them as they seemed resigned to an inevitable loss and were quiet and let us lead the way. I imagine this would’ve been us in years gone by. ☹️

Some mentions on here about Shaz and the grog squad and yes, Shaz is still front and centre of the Tiger Army. I met her on Thursday at banner making and we hit it off immediately but didn’t know her name. Chatted with her in the race yesterday and straight up asked if she was the infamous Shaz from days of old. She (rather proudly) said she is indeed. She’s been in the Tiger Army for 45 years!

PS: see that yellow and black crepe? Yeah well that was all my doing. It’s a dirty job but someone had to do it.

Y’all are welcome. 😁

No pics this week, for two reasons: firstly, it was a relatively routine banner so the wording should suffice…

… and secondly, I’ll need enough pic allowance for banners such as this week’s which is a milestone one… MAYSIE’S 200TH GAME!!!!

@WalkingCivilWarThe first quote feels pretty apt where we sit in the Media Landscape... just doing our thing quietly...

Right? It’s perfect for us.

Speaking of perfect, I love that we bastardised Queensland’s own slogan on the back. It’s a little bit cheeky but a big bit funny. 😂

Those of us who made this banner got to sign a card for Maysie’s 200th which was stuck on the banner and carefully removed afterwards and given to him. ❤️💙

I said what I say to him pretty much every week as he runs through the banner… “Loveya Maysie!” With a black heart. Black because that’s the only texta we had.

Another outsanding banner WCW. 

Love the snapshots of Mayzy top right.

Roughly how many hours and how many are involved in putting one together?

Thank you, DD. We’re particularly proud of this banner. The time it takes to make one depends on whether or not there’s a graphic (as in Maysie’s above) or just lettering. Also depends on how many people rock up on the night. I’ve been there when there’s only six of us and I’ve been there when there’s 54 of us (eg: banner making for QB and ANZAC eve). The average time it takes would be 4 hours.

I brought a friend from the UK who had never been to the footy before. I made sure we were there before the team ran out so he could experience the banners. He thought they were incredible and couldn't believe how big they were.
He'd never seen anything like it. 

Thank you @WalkingCivilWar for all your hard work that contributes to the great culture of our game.

    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

    Angus Brayshaw Forced into Retirement

    After 167 games including the drought breaking Premiership Angus Brayshaw has made the heart breaking decision to medically retire from football as a result of a series of serious head knocks over his nearly decade of footy. We wish Gus all the best and he'll always be a hero at Demonland. 😢
