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.

What an outrage!  *shakes fist*
 

Don't mind it personally.  Now I can book my parking and turn up whenever I like, knowing I'll have a spot, rather than going as close to gate opening time as possible and then needing to kill a couple of hours.

Plus, other than pre-booked parking in the city (which yes, you book online), it's the cheapest and most convenient footy parking in town.

 

Edit - for anyone intending to drive in that doesnt know about the change:

What a complete bunfight this will be when 25000 turn up to park without pre-booked tickets.

 

PLus the fact that Ticketek will completely stuff up every aspect of this.

Just be sure pants are one of the two pieces. 🤭

This new jacket I got from the Scarborough Surf Club in Jan is seriously one of the most comfortable and warm jackets ever. Will be bringing that along for sure!

JVR 5, Schache and Kozzy 3 each.  Not sure who kicks the other 15 goals.

North were witches hats the last two weeks and whatever resistance they muster won’t last long.  And as I’m a supporter, it doesn’t matter if I’m taking them lightly. MFC by 60+ 😁😁

2. poor umpiring against us. Predicting at least 3-4 gifted goals

Well Donlon hates us, Razor love Gus (bodes well for his 150th) and umpires 37 & 38 have umpired less than 5 games each. So who knows.

Matching daks?

I’m sure apart from being warm you’ll look a million bucks!

I bought a new DA beanie before round one and am rapt to be finally getting the opportunity to wear it. The other 25 beanies at home are now meh.

Speaking of beanies, the bloke sitting next to me on the train right now is wearing a beanie and a really thick coat and either he’s fat or he’s a proponent of many layers (like I am, only not 30+ layers at one time), but methinks he doesn’t need it. If I get to Flinders without passing out due to his pungent gut-churning body odour it’ll be a minor miracle. DL is the only thing keeping me upright atm 🤢

Remember the OX

I've heard that Schwarter played at over 115 on occasions. Hoping Jvr won't get that big. I think DS was taller too.

North were as physical against us as any team was last season. They are a better team now, and I expect they'll hit us very hard. I hope our guys aren't expecting an easy game. I'd like to see us hit them physically hard early and not give them the upper hand. This one makes me nervous.

Doctors told him to put on wait to help stabilise his knee. Despite 3 knee recos, we haven’t had a better CHF since Ox.

Wish we were going in with another key back tonight. 
We were exposed in defence v Essendon and Nth will look to do the same.

Gawn dropping back is great but Grundy is a liability in the marking contest.

I guess Schache can go back but that would throw all fwd structure out.

I wish the weather was cool here in BKK. Youre lucky in Melb.. 35c often rising to 40 by early evening. Cool change wont come till after midnight every night. F##%#k terrible.

I dont feel the humidity though. Im acclimatized. Tourists should never come here in the hot season. Nightmare.

Going to the game with 13 people from work.

10 of them are Collingwood supporters.

    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
