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.

yep  cant trust the Saints. 

They will make the 8 though. Their fixture couldnt of been better if Lyon drafted it himself. Later on they cop a rough patch of travelling for a month then a huge run of Marvel games at the back end.  No cattery game either.

Essendon and Collingwood are going to be knackered after Tuesday.

Dees better be on their game tonight. No stuffing about. Grind out a decent win.

Tom Boyd was in the same situation:  pick 1, left his drafting club to return home on a mega contract.

He didn't get booed by other clubs but still left the game far too early, depressed and disillusioned.

I hope this doesn’t happen to Jackson. 
JHF is performing to the level we all expected him to. Boyd didn’t except for that Grand Final game. Very eerily similar to Jackson.

Um that was woke mate and rightly so. A complete oversight by myself, adult add and pre coffee post.  Apologies to all especially the great female posters . 

Thanks for pointing it out, and at the risk of sounding Woke, being woke isn't a negative thing, as ironic as this sentence is.

Which makes me scratch my head at Floridas governor ( the one vying for the Usa's top job) stating.."I declare a war on Woke".

 

God forbid Florida has people doing and saying what's right.

 

If you're going for full on inclusive flair, might I recommend 'guys, gals and non binary pals'!

Or as Daisy suggested, a simple y'all to reinstate the original you plural distinction we've lost in English by removing 'thou' as a singular you.  I started saying y'all ironically to mock the Yanks but over time I've conceded to its supreme linguistic usefulness.

So reading peoples comments online why the booing is justified this is what people say.

They reckon draft tampering was involved and port and Jason had this arranged

Because people are told not to boo 

It's a free country we can do what we want

Kane Cornes keeps talking him up

It's not Horne's Francis fault Kane talks him up.

As I've said I completely get why nth fans would absolutely do it

Is our Tio stadium game against the Giants worth it?

I've been a big supporter but they are making it hard with the rolling fixture and the absence of television promotion.

Done properly it's a TV promoter's dream but there's little interest.

If the Vic Gov't would pay I'd be happy to see the game in Mildura. (Not impossible Dogs are paid to play in Ballarat)

I don't condone the booing but slightly different circumstances to a regular trade.

Horne-Francis essentially Tom Scullied North while they were on their knees and only saw out half of his rookie contract. Fair spit in the face of North fans who should rightfully be [censored] (I'm aware there are probable issues at North that contributed to him leaving).

Why every other teams fans has joined the booing bandwagon is somewhat perplexing but probably relates to group-think/pack mentality.

Agree. I could understand Roos fans being upset, but not other clubs.

BTW, I don't know that player you named. Name means nothing to me.

I still couldn't believe it when Oskar baker got booed in r1. It did die out towards the end but that was embarrassing. We delisted the guy.

I almost thought that was a joke at the time.  A sort of ‘funny because it’s so wrong’ thing.

Glad it stopped.

 

The only time I remember Melbourne fans booing someone who hadn’t left the club was when we played Adelaide at the G in 2009 and Nathan Bock had recently been accused / charged with domestic violence.

That goal by Powell Pepper in the last was a ripper and then he gives it to the saints supporters.

What, all 10 that were there.

Seriously though, with a membership of 55k with the game at Docklands and being on top of the ladder, that’s a very poor showing from Saints supporters.

 

 

Now watch us draw not even 20k to the G tonight

I say keep it but I think they could have a 25 m penalty used in conjunction. Not all infractions deserve the same penalty. Just saying.

Maybe .... but a 50 m penalty varies from around 35 - 55 m, so if they can't get that measurement right how will they go with a 25?  15 - 45?  They are miked up and GPS tracked - it should be relatively easy for "upstairs" to tell then exactly where the mark should be.

Gee, 'woke' can mean so many things.  So often it is so negative it borders on being an insult.  

I wasn't trying to put a particular slant on the 'gents' comment more to make it more inclusive. 

No need to apologise, I certainly wasn't offended hence the p.s. footnote.

Lions v Freo is just boring to watch. Switched over to GWS v Swans. Not much better.

I know a lot of water has passed under this bridge, but Hogan with his body right, mind right, and in form is a great footballer.

If we play at the G instead of Alice we lose the MCG compensation 'home' game (vs Hawks most years).  So we would probably travel somewhere else instead or play more at Marvel.  At least this year we have only one trip to Perth; it is usually two.

Swings and roudabouts.

And it won't change!

p.s I am not a 'woke' but may I point out that 'Sorry gents its whinge time for me' is a bit out of date.

Quite right Luci.

Sorry gents and sheilas would have been a preferred form of address.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 07 vs Richmond

    It's Game Day and the Demons once again open the round of football with their annual clash against Richmond on ANZAC Eve. The Tigers, coached by former Dees champion and Premiership assistant coach Adem Yze have a plethora of stars missing due to injury but beware the wounded Tiger. The Dees will have to be switched on tonight. A win will keep them in the hunt for the Top 4 whilst a loss could see them fall out of the 8 for the first time since 2020.

    OOZEE by The Oracle

    There’s a touch of irony in the fact that Adem Yze played his first game for Melbourne in Round 13, 1995 against the club he now coaches. For that game, he wore the number 44 guernsey and got six touches in a game the team won by 11 points.  The man whose first name was often misspelled, soon changed to the number 13 and it turned out lucky for him. He became a highly revered Demon with a record of 271 games during which his presence was acknowledged by the fans with the chant of “Oozee” wh

    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
