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.

We are playing poorly but FMD this is a massive prime time game and this is the best 4 clowns the AFL could find to umpire? 

Embarrassing performance from them. Especially umpire #20. Really woeful and killed any momentum we had.

Should be playing Tmac next to JVR

Tmac is cooked. Should never pull on the jumper again unless we get decimated eith injuries.

Did you not see him spud it up in the VFL yesterday?

Yea the umps can't keep this pace up.

Yep. Rarely blame umps decisions, but I counted at least 3 goals that were based on poor calls against us. That said, we need to be cleaner around the ball and improve the forward connection

Don’t worry about JVR. The usage into f50 wouldn’t have Tmac or BBB playing any better. Not like Petty is doing well.

 

Might be time to face it, we are overrated as things stand. Our game plan is 💩, our execution is 💩 💩 💩 and our positional awareness and set up is 💩 💩 💩💩 💩 💩 💩 💩 💩 💩 💩 💩💩 💩 💩 💩 💩 💩💩 💩 💩💩 💩 💩 💩 💩 💩💩 💩 💩💩 💩 💩 💩 💩 💩💩 💩 💩💩 💩 💩 💩 💩 💩💩 💩 💩💩 💩 💩 💩 💩 💩

Give Richmond credit, probably the most pressure they've brought all year, and understandably so

How can you expect him to show anything when his forward partner in crime is a CHB.

Another game where selection was woeful. Should have brought in the natural forward target in Schache as the extra tall target.

JVR is playing on Richmond's best Defender.

This is on Goody.

Mate seriously Petty has managed a couple of contested marks and kicked a goal despite pathetic structure and entries 

Who would you have picked that played in a pitiful Casey forward line performance?

Still confident that we will get up and win this game but by hell these umpires are absolutely terrible

I love your optimism.

I felt the same against the bombers last week and we never showed up.

Worried we’re not going to turn up today either but happy to jump on board your positive sentiment!

Umps will not reward our tackling.

It's shocking.

It’s my pet hate for non calls - reward the tackler. Otherwise, the tackling team sacrifices a player while the other team gets the overlap. It’s not good enough. Reward the tackler. 
 

In other news, we’re looking very ordinary. No magic any more.

Granted he has been slow and clumsy so far tonight but he's still a youngster on a steep learning curve. Hasn't worked out yet how to time a run to provide a lead or find space like Fritsch does. Far too early to just write him off.

Doesnt have the break away pace Deemon.

Nor the strength to push off a big defender and take a contested.

From behind he might take a few if it sits nicely.

Heaps of physical gym & track work ahead to get himself up to this level.

Does anybody notice how, just like last year, every team we play against knows they have a chance of winning if they just work hard. We were average against the WAFL Eagles, destroyed by the bombers and getting shown up again today. 

 

Yep, last decent game was against the Swans.

Still confident we get up. But senior players in Petracca, Lever, Oliver, Gawn all need to seriously pull their finger out.

Only 13 points down. First goal is crucial this quarter.

We've been playing poorly and only looked to have a bit of flow about us towards the end. But jeez the umpires are killing us. How that ANB 50 isn't paid given EVERYTHING we've seen this year and the soft ones that do get paid is completely beyond me.

A bin average half of football from us. Second to most balls, not working the extra 5% to help each other out. 50+ opposition points in the board by half time again, yay.

I don't care if they umpiring has been bad, there was no point in that 2nd quarter where I thought we'd get a run on. Every little ricochet, soccer kick, flick on favoured Richmond and they sliced us through the middle. We suck right now and are not playing the correct football to win.

Something is not working in the middle, get Gus in there, change it up a bit. We need to win some god damn ball out of the middle, get more inside 50s.

The one redeeming factor is there is 14 points in it. But if we don't come out absolutely striking fear into their hearts then it will be a long night. Find your Demon spirit and apply it. 

It's going to be hard work, Richmond have a head of steam up now and are running much harder than us, impossible your physicality and unlock the Demon within. One more time, FORGET about the umpiring and win the ball.

    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
