  • 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.

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

Hands down Kozzie. Tracc and Maxy close second. Some players have several heads, Gussy for example. We have one giant Langers but there’s permanent dibs on that. One of our gals has Ed the the entire match, every match. You’d have to prise him out of her cold dead hands for someone else to get their paws on him. And I know because I’ve tried. 😂

When a player retires or leaves us, we raffle off his giant head, happy in the knowledge that he’s gone to a good home where he’ll be loved forever.

Example:

In this case... My lounge room. 😝

TO DOMINATE THIS COMPETITION 

 

A smaller banner on this occasion since we have to adjust the size based on the length of the visitors’ poles at the various arenas.

Anyways, on Sunday, a group of us arrived at Blundstone at 9am. We were in the race ready to pole (attach the banner to the poles… a bigger task than it sounds) where we were greeted by North’s poling crew… all TWO of them. 🙁

Of course we jumped on in and helped them. Actually we pretty much took over, leaving them to attend to other pregame matters.

Their banner wasn’t even completed, the Mazda graphics weren’t attached, so we did that too.

Sadly, the North cheer squad didn’t travel to Hobart for this match.

The first pic shows the two North poling crew members in the foreground and two of our guys in the background getting their poles out…

Thank you, FD. We’d never leave another cheer squad in a bind. They would do the same for us if we needed help.

Clubs don’t pay for cheer squads to travel interstate. We pay for ourselves. It’s the North cheer squad’s choice to not travel. That’s even sadder imo.

If you want the rose, have to take the thorn.

I'm sure the DA was there during the dark years of 2010-2013.

They were always there. Every single match. There was less of them, but always enough to make and raise a banner and chant and cheer, even during 100-point beltings. They never left before the final siren, either. The current three leaders took the reins in 2011. So they’ve been there at the very best and the very worst of times.

Raising poles, beltings, taking the reins and not leaving other cheers squads in a bind (won't mention raffling giant head): this thread has some serious double-entendre S&MFC vibes going on WCW. The very best and worst of times?

That’s on GameDay. Every other day I eat gag-orders… on toast, or fried, or sometimes even raw. But eating gag-orders raw isn’t wise coz that can cause one to gag (see what I did there 🙃). Besides, the attendant drool would spoil the look of one’s red n blue guernsey.

Thank you! Now please convince my son. 😁 He cringes every time I add to it, and I’ve added to it a bunch since this pic was taken. That is, he used to cringe, but the addition of giant Jayden has made him realise he’s fighting a losing battle. 🤭

Nah, that’s where I keep Melksy and Harmesy and my new also-fave, Chinny Chin Chin Chandler. 😁

Before Sunday’s match the boys were doing warmups. There was only about 10 of us watching because this was long before the gates opened. Chin came over to say hello. A couple of our DA guys were up the back of the stand getting the aesthetics right (flag placement etc.) and they yelled out telling me to get a pic with him. While the pic was being taken one of the boys yelled out, “Hey WCW, keep your hands to yourself!” Chin and I both laughed, then resumed our pose, pics being taken all the while. So now I have a series of pics… in a third of them we’re both smiling, in the middle lot we’re both laughing and in the last lot I’m still laughing, but Chin is blushing. 🤭

    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. 😢
