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.

No surprises is a bit of a surprise...

May and Hibberd looked tender and Chandler ??

So much for managing the quick turnaround

Hi DJ. As much as that concerns me my response related to the inclusion of No.19 up front. I guess their best defender goes to JVR then?

That line up is a joke. Only a few named were in their real positions. 

That's the whole point - Goody's having a joke with us. He does this so 'Landers go insane. Laugh along I say. He's probably watching on laughing with the way he's #%&*!#@ with our brains. It's his secret weekly indulgence.

I was hoping that Daniel Turner would have got a run in the backline, really surprised that Hibbo got up he looked in a bit of trouble late in the game skying kicks. He is a tough customer.!!

I recon Hibbo perpetually looks in a state of trouble. Love him.

I was hoping some of the old codgers would be managed this week with the short turnaround - May and Hibberd. Similarly, I hope the mids are rotated out of the centre a little more for Kozzie, JJ and Sparrow.

Of course we won't take Norf lightly!

Didn't Rivers have a knock as well? Maybe just cramp 

Yeah, just cramp.  Was stretching it out for a while before he totally missed that kick and was subbed immediately after.

Maybe Fritter at centre half back is a thing.

A few posters have expressed doubts and concerns about the game against Norf.

I don't get it! 

We will [censored] on Norf from a great height!

I don’t agree. We are in very mediocre form and bottom sides come out with great intent against us while we often come out napping. 
5 day break on top of that and this could end in tears.

I’m not outraged. I just think it’s stupid. 

Less stupid or more stupid than telling the opposition exactly how we're going to line up?

Correct Jaded, I expect they will come out hard. They may well hang around until half time .... but after that ....

I just realised it. The Deez media division ^%&*@#-!p the media release. They reversed the lines. Should have read:

B: J Jordon, J.van Rooyen, J.McVee

HB: J.Viney, J.Schache, M.Hibberd

C: E.Langdon, C.Oliver, T.Sparrow

HF: A.Brayshaw, B.Fritsch, T.Rivers

F: J.Bowey, S.May, J.Lever

Makes much more sense this way.

    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
