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.

Is that because he said it once and you heard it once @WalkingCivilWar?

I don’t but the Sydney win is now tainted because of what Geelong did. Swans were effectively at full strength that night coming of two good wins all be it against lower placed sides. This weeks games have reminded us again of what can happen when you don’t turn up with the Hawks nearly upsetting the Crows. In rd 3 the Suns defeated the Cats.

The dropping of TMac confirmed the win tonight for me, what worked in 2021 won’t be enough this year. We’re still the most talented team overall in the competition, our best lineup is a work in progress.

Dees by 12+ goals.

I'm assuming with a 9 day break fatigue won't be an issue.

If we bring our elite pressure from minute one, which I am very confident we will, we will steam roll them.

They can move petty forward because without lynch they have a very weak forward line. And can't do what the bomber's did and worry us with talls.

Riewodlt might kick a couple of goals, but he's adding little otherwise in terms of impact.

And much the same could be said about dusty. 

Max and brodie will monster Ryan. 

And their midfield is levels below ours.

Their utilities are ok, but missing targets. 

They look much better down back.

Bring the pressure, win contested ball, force and score from turnovers and win time in forward half.  And take our chances.

If that all happens, we win by 6 goals plus.

If we don't bring the pressure, and they do, we lose.

Dees by 54 points.

This seems like a longer than normal day thread.

There's excitement in the air. Maybe most are fired up about going tonight. It certainly makes Monday more interesting. 

But I think there is a quiet confidence and despite last week's embarrassing loss, a sense that we will win.

Will Kozzie turn it on under the big lights?

Will Tmac prove many wrong?

Will Lever marshall his troops in defence and fix the backline?

Will Jvr kick a bag?

Will Mr whippy return?

All these burning issues will soon be answered.

I hope our losses are due to being a home ground (MCG fortress) team now (struggling as away team), and we get the best out of our players on the MCG. Would love us to unbeatable on the hallowed turf. That will set us up for a great finals series, so long as as we make them and get the home ground matches. 

Spot on.

I'd rather be dominant at the MCG and lose a few interstate games rather than be dominant interstate and be patchy at the home of football, as per 2022.

On the matter of the crowd tonight, there are some level 2 seats available in the AFL members which is unheard for marquee games. So maybe the crowd won't be as high as everyone was hoping.

Bring the hot stuff right from the get-go. I'd rather bring it early and have a 2nd quarter dip than turn up lifeless like last week. 

Our back 6 needs to be in sync as Jack can always get off the chain. Win contested footy the way we know how and move it quickly in transition. 

No need to go fancy, pick the best option first time and it's a beautiful night for some skills so let's kick some goals. 

Will be great to have #11 back so protect him and watch out for any funny business.

Do all these things and we should get the W.

Tonight looking for ....

> Switched on from get go

> Hard over the pill

> Clarry's early form given illness...hopefully not partially cooked.

> Forwards to separate and create space for others

> Some contested marks inside 50 (one of the lowest ranked here till now) 

> A few contesteds around the ground (as above... no doubt due to Max's absence but he cant do it all)

> Maysie to get back to 21/22 form

> Injury free games from Big M and Rick

> Chandler & Kozzie to step things up defensively, coming inside with the last kick and at the sticks with Spargo out

Let's hope the warm weather helps Clarry to overcome any illness symptoms

Also guys my husband is coming tonight for the first time this season.

I happened to be sitting behind @Jaded No More and hubby the last time he attended a Melbourne game.

At one point, I heard him tell her that he thought she had drawn her eyebrows on too high.

She looked surprised.

    TRAINING: Friday 19th April 2024

    They are out for a run just as it starts raining. It didn't last long, ended up a reasonable session weather wise.  Light duties, BBB, rehab Farris-White, Melky, Salem and Spargo, all with private trainers. They are all playing soccer, huge amount of noise. 36-40 (difficult to get a count) in the main squad, biggest I've seen it in ages. Choco is barking out the orders. Goody has intense body language as he observes. Bowey in a lime green cap (no contact), and in the sim

    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.
