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.


GAMEDAY: Rd 07 vs North Melbourne


Demonland

Recommended Posts

The cards are all stacked in Melbourne’s favour for tonight’s clash against Al Clarkson’s North Melbourne. They are out of form, young, inexperienced, have lost their gun player in LDU and haven’t won a game at the G since 2016. They desperately need to fix their defensive system because they’ve been leaking goals of late while the Demons have been trying to right their forward line for the past 12 months. Melbourne are favourites and rightly so but need the fans to come out and support them tonight!

A big win tonight and a Collingwood loss tomorrow could see us on top of the ladder.

Question is whether we want to be there at this early stage of the season?

IMO it shouldn’t be a question. You try to get the wins on the board early to set up your season and finish in the top four after round 24. I know that football’s all about taking things one week at a time but looking ahead at our next few weeks I would be very disappointed if we weren’t in first or second spot before the break for the bye.

As for tonight, I think it’s time to lift ourselves back to the form we showed at the start of the season when we overran the Bulldogs in Round 1.

North won't be pushovers tonight. You can absolutely bet Clarkson will get them up for a game at the MCG on free to air against a flag contender. He did it multiple times at Hawthorn between 2004-2006 and he'll get it done a few more times this year. Hopefully not against us. There are a few players at North playing for their careers atm. Everyone is playing for a spot in Clarkson's North. At the very least, they'll start strong and give us a scare early.

Perfect weather. Sunny and crisp all day according to BOM.

Should be a good game. Hopefully a crowd lf 40k-ish.

They must have updated the forecast.  It now reads:

It will be dark and cold (13 d) by the time the game starts and 10 d by the time it ends.  Add some wind chill factor for the slight breeze and it won't be pleasant sitting at the G.  Sadly that will put people off going and we will be lucky to get 30K

From round 7, all parking at the G will have to be purchased on line from Ticktec.

This is on the MCC website Once again if you dont have a mobile phone you just dont park at the G.

First refusing to axcept Australian money, then having to use credit cards now that isnt good enough, having to prepurchase parking tickets online from of all people.... TICKETEC.

This will be a slog. Roos under the pump after poor month. Clarkson will make our life hell.

So for the game thread. Before we single out players, and [censored] and moan, let's remember that AFL is a tough caper. Go Dees!

For you and I perhaps but not likely for the 'fair weather sailors' when it comes to attending games.

And I'm not sure how many North supporters will pay for seats, all things considered.

Every game is important, every game difficult if not switched on. Last night game and example of how tight the comp can be.

is top up for grabs ?

just get the points. Go Dees

A little danger feeling on this. We should have a decent win on ladder positions, but they were very physical and served it up to us at Metricon last year.

Enjoy the game.

I’m not proud of it, but I’ve used the Jam Donuts at the G to motivate young family members to keep going to the footy until they’ve fallen in love with the Dees. It works for 49 year olds too.

Whatever it takes.

I’ve been invited by a friend who is a North insider. He has stressed no opposition colours as we’ll be going into the North rooms. 🤐

Just go and make a beeline for Todd Viney. At least you'll get your Melbourne fix

    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.
