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.

Richmond a genuine shot at this.

Yup. Sydney are nowhere near their skill level by foot or hardness around the ball thus far this year. I think they have quite a few players out of form as they’ve lost their ruthlessness or something? They should be a much better team than Richmond.

We're really getting robbed of having a decent crowd at our game by virtue of it being a double header and the Port fans most likely not being there for the majority of our game.

Yeah, the crowds at the two double-header’s are going to be very interesting.  Looking forward to hear from those at the ground what it’s like because I don’t think the broadcasters will be very honest with the crowd size, especially during the first half of our game.

Now that you say that, Because Freo and Suns played at a capacity of less than 10,000, would they get any compensation from the AFL considering they don’t have the ability to pull 20,000+ at a larger ground?

What I think people are missing  is the fact that this round doesn’t dig into a Port home game. The AFL has said that all tickets to the double header tomorrow have been sold.
If the majority of sales have gone to Port fans then yes, we could be playing in a not so filled stadium until Port fans arrive.

I’m guessing each teams’ supporters had an even chance of getting tickets. I’m hoping to see at least a half full stadium for our game from the start.

Were membership numbers required to purchase tickets?

Melbourne members got an email with a barcode back in December from memory about grabbing free tickets for Gather Round Viper. After that offer I’m not sure mate.

If he was a demon, I'd still thinks he's a #%@!!

Agreed. I'm always conflicted when it comes to Papley. I have a soft spot as I saw him play half a dozen games with Casey as the 23rd man top up in his draft year. And he's obviously a really good player.

But he's also a complete goal hungry team mate who burns the others and he carries on like a total fl*g!

    MAULED by Whispering Jack

    The writing was on the wall from the very first bounce of the football. The big men went up, Max Gawn more often than not, decisively won the ruck hit out and invariably a Brisbane Lions onballer either won the battle on the ground or halved the contest and they went at it repeatedly until they finally won out. Melbourne managed the first goal from Alex Neal-Bullen but after that the visitors shut out every area of Demon presence around the ground except in the ruck duels. It was a mauling.

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    DEMONLAND: Good evening, Demon fans and welcome to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast … It’s been a beautiful last day of September and how sweet it is to bring you our coverage of all things that matter about the great Demon resurgence which we’ve seen over the past six or seven months. How our team overcame a turbulent off season and a disappointing start to 2024 on a humid night in Sydney, turned our detractors into believers and then ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    TRAINING: Sunday 7th April 2024

    Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin ventured down in the rain to Gosch's Paddock for the Demon Family Series April School Holiday Open Training session. Not such a good morning, weather wise. As I arrived, it starting raining, settled into watching some Victory players have a kick around. The MFC squad come out as the rain abated, they had wide smiles as the walked down the roped corridor. Plenty of joy from the supporters towards them, kids everywhere, maybe about 500 to a 1000 of us.
