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.

Our cleaner ball movement and generally ‘on song’ goal kicking, should have them well covered.  Add our power mids to the mix, and I can’t see them getting enough ball to trouble us.  Oh, and even without Rick Lever and Hibbo, our defence will be too strong in the air and on the ground.  That all adds up to a fairly comprehensive 5 or 6 goal win imo, even in the forecast wet conditions.

What is ruling on late changes?

It would be beyond our control if it's still raining cats and hounds and poor Ben Brown suffers a mild hammy strain during the warm-up and would need to be replaced in the starting 22.

Nutritious breakfast WCW.

Breakfast?! We left at 4:59am. This is almost lunch. Incidentally, the woman who served us was easily 80yo, not even 5ft tall, white-haired and bent over and as we left the servo she yelled out, “enjoy yourselves now ladies coz you’ll be crying all the [censored] way home tonight, go the mighty bombers!”

For that reason alone we HAVE TO SMASH THIS PACK OF [censored]!

Shutting down Stringer will go a long way to us winning this game. Essendon don't have a wealth of tall forwards at the moment with both Wright and Weid on the sidelines, meaning Stringer will likely be their main avenue to goal. I'd almost be tempted in giving May the job if he starts forward.

Have a look at last nights game and play the  way Sydney did, especially in the last. Usually a better skilled and experienced side gets it done in the wet. However my MFCSS is banging away at my posterior muscles as is usual on gameday.

Agree.

One of the biggest myths in footy is wet weather is an equaliser.

Teams with good skills, like we have shown this season, are advantaged in the wet over teams with poor skills because generally good skill is a function of good technique and good technique stands up better in wet condtions (and when windy too for that matter, not to mention pressure).

I'd add we are a contested ball team, which is another advantage we bring into this match as wet weather usually means lots of ground balls.

All that said, we could luck out and miss any heavy rain. radar look ok and the heavy rain and thunderstorms are not forecast to hit until the evening

Well it would be an extremely long fart since she was permanently bent over, as in, looking at her own feet but not by choice.

Are you sure you didn't enter the wrong building, and found yourself in Gringott's bank? Most Bummer supporters are trolls or goblins.

 I did tell her we’d be stopping there on the way home and she said she won’t be working at that time but is willing to come in just to see me. 😳

Not gonna lie… she scared me a little.

Yes I know the type, she's probably 25yo but bitter and twisted from following that evil side! I hope you sanitised thoroughly on departure and at the very least improved the average IQ of the place by leaving a large [censored] in the restroom.

    ICEBREAKER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons have broken the ice for season 2024 with a pulsating come-from-behind victory over Port Melbourne in which it took the lead for the first time at the halfway mark of the final quarter. The game played in mild Autumn conditions in neutral territory at Kinetic Park, Frankston, never reached great heights in standard but it proved gripping in character at the end at the Casey Demons overcame the Borough to win by 15 points after trailing badly early in the second half.  P

    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.
