Posting Unsubstantiated Rumours on this Website is Strictly Forbidden
  • 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.

WCW, can you advise why the banner is never turned both ways so people in the Southern stand can see the message.

 

We’d love to be able to do this (a “showing”) every week but for various reasons we can’t. Sometimes it’s because we haven’t enough time. We follow a strict timeline out in the middle; every single minute is accounted for. This is usually the reason at away games.

The elements also dictate whether we can do a showing. If it’s raining or windy it’s a no-go. (Say what you want about Marvel, but it’s banner crew’s best friend 😁).

We did one on Friday night. This is only the second time we’ve been able to do it this season. Two in 12 rounds is about what’s to be expected given the above reasons.

Realised there’s been 12 rounds, not 11. My how time flies!

I remember in the good-old, bad-old days we had Melbourne - Masters of the MCG and Melbourne Greatest Ever Exponents of Perfection Football displayed across the northern and southern stands in perpetuity. There was a third one l have forgotten.

A friend of mine who is now on the committee of Coterie was in the cheer squad in the 60s and 70s, he said he has one of those large banners at his house, and he said it went half way around the old southern stand.  I'd love to see it!

I recall the first one BD.

The second.... see below

Don't recall the third.

I remember a very long one that always amazed me how they could make a banner with that many words but didnt recall the words.  I suspect the one you are referring to is the second mentioned by BD here.

I always recall at Richmond home games they would have their own running.  The one i recall was at the Punt Road end.  Can't recall if it was along the boundary or along the edge of the 1st tier.

After checking with my older bro, Crusty Demon who's been following since about 65, he stated the following...

..."Masters of the MCG was a famous one I remember very well.  It was always placed on the boundary fence on the northern wing in the early 70s.

I don't remember the other one though.

I do remember a cheer squad banner at Vic Park in the mid seventies that actually said   '[censored] on Crappy Collingwog'   😂 True!  "  .....

Was involved in those as well. Try lugging a very wet 50my long banner home on the train.

Jake Melksham 100+1 MFC games this week on the banner?

Apparently it was his 100th game against St. Kilda.

But we all forgot! 😔

 

That was Jake’s 214th game in total, his 100th as a Demon.

We don’t acknowledge a player’s Melbourne-only games tally. We acknowledge their total AFL games, which we did for his 200th last year.

Besides, we’d never forget a milestone. 🙂

All good. 😎👍🏻

I greatly appreciate the explanation.

I wasn't familiar with the process of acknowledging milestone games.

Nice pic @WalkingCivilWar!

Yes it is a great pic. But I prefer Demonland’s photo of the week, and not just because I’m in it, except totally coz I’m in it. 😁

You can’t see me but I’m holding up the #41 jumper pic. I thought I was holding it up showing the other side which is #37, but it’s not upside-down so for me it’s a win. I don’t do giant heads anymore because it’s not a good look for them to be upside-down. 🤭

Who are the most sought for players when it comes to holding their Giant heads?

    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
