  • 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.


Andrew Dillon is the Next AFL CEO

More info please.  Don't recognise the reference to 'Bogan 1'.

I think OD is referring to Virgin Airlines a lot of a shemozzlw.

I stopped going some years ago. Sadly an influx of poor behaving Aussies and Russians have ruined a paradise some years ago.

Are you speaking from  experience or just not spoiling a good story with a mistruth OD. 

I can only say in over 20 years of domestic travel I have never been redirected or had to stay over because of a fault with Jetstar. 

I have I believe heard of some Jetstar International maybe two/three times  leaving air passengers in Asia over that period. But nothing like you are asserting. 

As with most Airlines there has been a very small instance since Covid return of cancelled flights mainly due to lack of staff and Jetstar has experienced that which I was effected. Would be about once/ twice in 12 mths.

But once again  your penchant for a completely negative tone seems to have overridden  and exaggerated the real truth again.

I have over the same period travelled majorly with Tiger ( and Virgin) and it was never even what you assert Jetstar to be. Saved about $5000 with Tiger compared to Qantas prices also. 

Cheaper Airlines flights are always more liable to have slip ups and whatever class of passenger mostly recognise  this when booking. 

Maybe you expect Qantas pre Covid standards and service with Jetstar's lower prices.

Then you are very lucky, I have had flights delayed 9 hours, flights cancelled. Numerous flights run 4-5 hours late. My daughter stuck in Bali for 3 days. No I don't expect the same as Qantas. I have had numerous flights on cheap airlines e.g. southwest and Scoot. The flights left on time and did not land half way through the flight. Why can't you accept that Jetstar is an airline that quite often cannot get the basics right. The only think they have done right in recent times is to not buy 737 max planes. Thank god the Irishman is leaving.

Yep flights getting cancelled on way to Cairns airport after driving 100ks from Daintree with two other people is not funny.

You must be a very lucky traveller.  

I was going to say Jetstar not so much Bogan as Agricultural .... much of a muchness.  I would put Virgin as the better of the Cheap lot.

That you've experienced enchanted services with little delays, cancellation and other frustrations ... I'm envious, truly

All in all I concur with some, Joyce's departure is a good thing.

Maybe the incoming might concentrate on running an airline... not a wine-selling,mortgage-broking insurance peddler.

 

Oh yeah Go Dees

Mentors, @Mincho Mania and @DeeZone?

I'm imagining something nearer parents: he's arrived at his apparent destiny, has ANDREW D(emetriou/G)ILLON(McLachlan)!

And speaking of Dill'n'Gill, the 'Front Bar' lads had them on for a grill last night. Bit of fun.

In Thailand the Russians and Ukrainians are a hot mess. Theyre everywhere nowdays. Crime, mafia  numpties. Australians are mostly well behaved with the occassional bogan smashing up his room or vomiting on bargirls.

British are in a league of their own. Young, old ,male female. Cant handle alcohol.

Things can and do go terribly wrong if you screw up here.  Bali is probably more laid back..

As for Dillon . Wait and see the 2024 fixture. If we get flicked to the Cattery and Norf in Tasmania then he's just another AFL exec who gives F all about MFC.

Goody,

Lets hope under Dillon the fixture stays compromised, drafting stays compromised, umpiring stays compromised like in the last 5 mins of a premil we won't pay obvious free kicks becuse we wouldn't want to ruin the game aka we won't X team to win, stays, and oh how could i forget the tribunal and the boys clubs cluture so we can continue to milk the $$$

My personal fav though is, lets change the time the GF is played so we can sell teh product more readily internationally, $$$$ for all [censored] the actual game.

Go AFL.

*** You might have guessed im a bit of a pessimist on the AFL and it's integrity. For example, lets preach popular social causes, but profit from gambling activities.... What a great bunch of leaders we have at the AFL, preach to the blind and hope no one asks questions.

    Angus Brayshaw Forced into Retirement
