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 performance was that bad last week that this is the first time I have been on DL since the middle of the third quarter.

Upgraded my ga ticket and will be sitting in M4 level 1 does anyone know when the ceremony stuff starts as I'll be coming from work in South Melbourne and don't want to be late or too early

...I feel better with Lever back in defence. 

Big time. He's our onfield general. Even when he's not in the best form, he's organising the troops and filling space that stifles oppositions ball movement. He usually winds up with a horse voice by the end of the match from barking orders!

From a leadership and onfield coaching perspective, he's our most important player. Our next captain IMO. 

It's a shame he got injured. Hopefully it doesn't impact his form too much, as he was in All Australian form to start the year.

It sounded like Lever ended up with a horse voice just from the captain's run yesterday!

Remember to wear a fig of rosemary instead of a poppy and as you've been told by others already to wear your ancestors medals on the right breast pocket.

 

Thanks very much Cc

I knew the significance and traditions of the poppy but didn't know that rosemary grew wild at Gallipoli and hence to wear some. Oh the knowledge of Mfc supporters.  A cut above others.

Hence why she thanked Mr Jaded. He has no real name. His whole identity is tied up in mine 😂

As it damn well should be! 😂

He might tell people he wears the pants in your house. But we all know it’s you who picks which ones he wears. 😁

For anyone looking for a gameday distraction this is a nice piece on Trac:

Just read it. Trac seems like such an authentic guy. I loved how he said he over thinks everything and Clarry doesn’t think about anything at all. Hilarious.

Also guys my husband is coming tonight for the first time this season. He’s only seen us lose live twice. Lock in a win. 

On the flip side, my wife, who moved to Australia in 2008 and met me in 2010, came to games religiously with me in the dark years of 2012-2014. Across 2015-2018 were really fun for her because she'd not seen many wins so seeing more wins were great even though for me it was frustrating because we still weren't THAT good. But to her, 5+ wins was great.

Our first was born in 2019 so she never came to the footy although she didn't miss much that year, and we were in lockdown in 2020 and 2021.

She came to ONE game last year... the Freo game at the MCG.

Our second was born two weeks ago so she won't be coming this year, and couldn't anyway because we've paused her membership lol

Probably for the best -- seems she's bad luck for the team.

Be there for 6:50. Honestly it’s the most beautifully poignant moment. You don’t want to miss it.

Club email suggests:

  • Seated by 6.40
  • Torches on at 6.55 when MCG lights go out
  • Ceremony from 6.55 to 7.10
  • Game starts at 7.25

Don't think you can be 'too early'.  Expect long queues at entry gates.

Twice on the weekend I heard Dermott Brereton say that for his our pre-match ceremony is more poignant than the ANZAC Day match pregame ceremony since it’s at nighttime, thus the spectacle is way more effective. I fully agree with him.

Heard it twice? Is that because he said it twice in very different ways in the one breath?

Yes and both utterances were delivered as though they’re the most profound observations ever you will hear in your entire life. Just like everything else he says.

Absolutely.  I predict i( profoundly) it will take over the round including the traditional Tuesday clash. The night time atmosphere and the imitation phone candles bring a whole new feel that elicits goose bumps during the last post. Just need the crowd to grow which I'm sure it will. I'd wager those going tonight usually pencil it in each year as a must. Have we won most of them.?The first and only one I saw was when we were leading up to the last q but got down to about only 18 players  due to injury and sone dubious rough play and the toigs stormed home.

Spot on, Luci. Gates open at 5pm and for sure there’ll already be many people there not long after that. Queues will be very long and since the gates are shut during the ceremony, it’d be a shame to be stuck outside during this time.

In particular, according to the master of profundity aka Dermie, the lap of the ‘G by the lone Light Horse Troop in complete darkness is the most poignant part.

    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.

    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.
