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.

Result is probably not going to change much about where we are at as a team. The lack of intensity perfectly encapsulated in Brayshaw taking 17 seconds to try and dispose of the ball while deep in defence. 29 tackles to 44. It might be that we are simply an overrated team, but our lack of real fight is the bigger blight.

Damn frustrating game to watch with the performance of the umps and our dreadful disposal.

backs look better with Lever there but they are suffering from the same as the rest of the team because of the Tiger's pressure their disposals are off. 

No forward line to speak of. Very dysfunctional. let's try playing an experienced forward sometimes soon.

Mids.... so many superstars and so very little results at the center bounces. Who is our midfield coach?? 

Work harder at the basics, bring pressure and  look to secure and keep the ball.

 

We can win this.

Mate they ain't superstars even if they are very good.

Superstars always give you the goods

An absolute bin diesel of a performance. I cannot for the life of me believe we are 2 points down, we are not playing at the level required to win this football game. Richmond are still the better side tonight and we need a champion effort in the last quarter. Champion teams have 3 bad quarters then do what needs to be done to win the game.

The challenge is set Demons, rise to it.

Worst umpiring I have seen  so one way against us

It's not just the soft ones paid to tigers, it's the myriad to us totally ignored.

But we are still in it and seem faster than tigers now.

Umpire #20 needs to go and get absolutely [censored]

I have never wanted to punch a [censored] umpire so much in my life. I wish him the spiciest diarrhea. 

Didn't he also umpire us last week? Wikipedia tells me his name is Brian Hay and he's umpired 79 games.  Don't know how to find details of previous week's umpiring but it all feels a bit familiar...

Umpiring aside...

I have not been up off my chair yelling at the screen since the 2021 GF, but this time it incredulous fury. It is simply not possible for a squad with this talent to make so many fundamental football errors, both in decision making AND skill. It looks like 2012/2013 /2014 team. 

And as for those pathetic, "get-rid-of-the-ball-quickly" handballs that go 50 cms, or the loopy one over the top so 2 Richmond players can cause physical pressure or damage, can't the on-field leadership correct that?

Something not right with May I feel. So far off his normal self. Lever rusty but better that term.

Petty not really a forward, doesn't have the craft, and with JVR outpointed by someone bigger/stronger/more experienced, forward line is only just functioning.

    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
