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.

The players have a song of choice when they kick a goal. For Charlie Cameron it’s Take Me Home… 

I think the ‘suits in ‘marketing’ call it fan engagement. Whilst I don’t relate to it, having watched the Dees a few times now at The Gabba, the young kids love it.

The choice of goal celebration songs pales into insignificance when you see on the big screen a clip of the goal-kicking player’s celebratory dance. Painfully cringe. 
Especially old mate Zorko who does a gangnam style move. 🤮

I wonder what the Bris fans think about it.

Can’t speak for all Brisbane fans but those at the ground go nuts for it. Especially Country Road and Sweet Caroline. They sing those songs louder than they do their own theme song.

Hashtag don’t forget, there’s actually a footy match on. 🙄

Did the Lions come up with the blueprint for how to beat Collingwood? Or was it just a bloopie?

In the second quarter they did what no one had done and that was regarding the Dacios boys it was not what they did with their first possession, but did not allow them free possession after that and that's the trick to it all.  When McCray said I would tag them he knew these boys could run all day so going after them by tagging is a waste of time it's how you set up to stop them getting to the next contest to create the lose man.

The move he's doing is the floss (viral from tik tok like 5 years ago).  He looks so smug whilst doing it, really kills the footy experience 🤮

I found watching a couple of the brisbane players singing along cringy myself.

Yes that's the one Kent...

I literally take ear plugs now and use them at half time because of her.

Not sure what happened to Robbo.  Wish he would come back.

Voice training needed urgently, breathing lessons - the works - or, as you say, Robbo makes a comeback.

Demon3165 spot on. Nick especially is always given the chance to chase his kicks and get contest to contest. You need to limit his follow up ability because that's where the real damage happens.

Speaking of theme songs I'm a little surprised that the French Government haven't made noises about the use of their national anthem as a footy club tune. The French are usually a little touchy over such things... Camembert anyone ??

You’re right, DP. Zorko does the floss. I’m getting him mixed up with another player who does the riding a horse and circling a lasso above his head thing. Anyways, they’re all terrible, especially on the giant screen where it’s hard to avoid seeing them. And especially when we’re getting done. That’s the last thing you wanna see.

I don't want to be reminded of any dance moves 😂  it's a good thing the Dee Army bay is sober, as otherwise in that Gabba game I think I would have had a shot for every time the Lions were dancing on the big screen!

I was going to write about Joe Daniher as well but couldn’t quite recall the song title. It’s totally about the youth engagement and good on him for sticking his hand up for the female under 10’s.

Evidently according to my Brisbane friends, Joe chose "Let it go" from frozen because he sings it as Let it Joe.

I find the songs and clips of the footballers doing a little dance to their song all a bit cringeworthy. But hey, I'm just not into crowd activation I guess. I'd rather have a conversation with the people I'm with rather than having to shout at them after a goal.

    TIGERS PUNT CASEY by KC from Casey

    The afternoon atmosphere at the Swinburne Centre was somewhat surreal as the game between Richmond VFL and the Casey Demons unfolded on what was really a normal work day for most Melburnians. The Yarra Park precinct marched to the rhythm of city life, the trains rolled by, pedestrians walked by with their dogs and the traffic on Punt Road and Brunton Avenue swirled past while inside the arena, a football battle ensued. And what a battle it was? The Tigers came in with a record of two wins f

    GAMEDAY: Rd 07 vs Richmond

    It's Game Day and the Demons once again open the round of football with their annual clash against Richmond on ANZAC Eve. The Tigers, coached by former Dees champion and Premiership assistant coach Adem Yze have a plethora of stars missing due to injury but beware the wounded Tiger. The Dees will have to be switched on tonight. A win will keep them in the hunt for the Top 4 whilst a loss could see them fall out of the 8 for the first time since 2020.

    Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin ventured down to Gosch's Paddock to bring you his observations from this morning's Captain's Run including some hints at the changes for our ANZAC Eve clash against the Tigers.

    OOZEE by The Oracle

    There’s a touch of irony in the fact that Adem Yze played his first game for Melbourne in Round 13, 1995 against the club he now coaches. For that game, he wore the number 44 guernsey and got six touches in a game the team won by 11 points.  The man whose first name was often misspelled, soon changed to the number 13 and it turned out lucky for him. He became a highly revered Demon with a record of 271 games during which his presence was acknowledged by the fans with the chant of “Oozee” wh

    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
