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.

Not sure about the blues defenders knocking the ball back into play on the goal line from a Crows set shot. Seen them give up 2 goals from this. Voss will be screaming "For god's sake, punch it through!!!"

Yeah, Carlton’s  defence near Adelaide’s goal line was a nightmare for them.  Hilarious for neutrals though 😁😁

Crows were very good and they look super fit.  Teamwork and backing up was first rate.  They look a different team with the Burgess effect

Carlton were dominated and had no answers.  An ordinary performance

Hopefully not, all tickets have been sold for our game and the Port game.

They are the same ticket though, right? So if I’m a Port supporter and want to watch the Port game I also get a seat at the Melbourne game (which I would imagine many wouldn’t bother rocking up for).

I hate Carlton with a passion but you really have to forget that game, there was no way the Crows were losing tonight. And I think the Dogs will have the same problem on Sat night. Gather round is fine but it had better be in a different state each year.

Logistics. There’s no way they can empty the stadium, pick up the rubbish, clean the restrooms, etc. then re-fill the stadium for the second match in that short period of time.

I’m guessing there’ll be many Port fans at our match since the one ticket covers both games and because the novelty factor is there. And they are a footy-mad state.

with another hour between games it's done easily

The other way is that you only use a section of the ground for game 1.. clear it and allow game 2 patrons in.   Other sections pay a slight premium for the two games

So many ways... the reality is that only the local teams are drawing and they knew it.

Olympic athletics have day and night sessions in bigger stadiums with relatively short breaks for example

The conversation around Cripps being better than Oliver just needs to end. You can count the games Clarry hasn't impacted on one hand. Cripps has half a dozen every season. That Brownlow last year was a total fraud. He can do special things when he wants, emphasis on 'He wants'.

I guess we will see, I was only trying to help you sleep by saying fans don’t have to vacate the stadium after our game.

I wonder when it will click for Carlton that the bottom 6 in your team is what wins you games. They load up on “super stars” and big names, over pay average B graders to appease their feral supporters during trade time, sell false hope and ignore the draft and youth. 
 

Their VFL team is [censored] as well, don’t have much coming through.

I can’t help but admire Ben Keays.  Brisbane discard, but he worked super hard, got himself incredibly fit and is now forging a great career for himself.  And ironically, he’s the type of personality that Brisbane seem to really be missing.

I enjoyed that, loathe Carlton, and looking forward to us vs Crows, just quietly I still think our deefence remains the best and Crows won't get as many freebies. Also happy for Nicks to enjoy some 'limited' success, 13 losses to start your career was pretty grim. But anyway, knew Carlton are pretenders their defence isn't whole team, we will cream them as well.

I expected Adelaide to belt someone soon but didn't think it would be Carlton. Carlton shouldn't be blown apart in the middle by any side, let alone Adelaide, and it was the midfield dominance which set up the first quarter and the win.

Not a bad year to get Adelaide only once and at the G.

Another hour wouldn’t be enough. If they did only use a section for the first match (as you suggested) they could do it, but who’s to say our match wouldn’t have been sold out without it being the first of a double-header? Every other match bar Rich vs Syd has sold out.

Adelaide smoked them in centre clearances. Really outsmarted them in that area too.

    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
