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.


Kings Birthday Sold Out

Well you can at least guarantee the mcc will be full. If the AFL members show and it's a nice day we could get over 90,000 easily. 

It's also because both sides are up there but the Neale daniher factor and the mnd slide gets more people through the gate. 

If we were bottom on the ladder I'd still go just for the pre game stuff

Melbourne long range weather forecast

June 12th top 14 degrees and wet. Not what we want to see. 

Not for our chances of winning no

Not for the atmosphere.

But it won't matter to our financial bottom line if it has sold out already.

How many home members will miss out to Pies fans? It’s great for them that they have a huge fan base and are in ripping form. But it means that most of their away games are actual home games as any other team outside of Bombers and Blues. 

Couple the above with a lower interstate fixture and then talk about efforts to create equilibrium. The continued inequity in this game is driving me mad. Especially as Collingwood get to continually benefit.

Exactly. Next to us are two guys from SA who have reserved seats but don’t turn up often as you expect. 
 

I wouldn't expect them to turn up very often??

The AFL members will absolutely show up. It's essentially the Collingwood reserve these days and they almost packed it out against Sydney a few weeks back. It's already a sell out in the AFL members.

I think there is more of a chance of the AFL members being full than the MCC.

I'm a nuff at these things. So as full MCC if I want to get there early for walk up seats do I just purchase General Admission?

The bureau can't even get tomorrow morning correct, so I'm sure that forecast is subject to change.

I don't think it's rained on a Dees V Pies Queens/Kings Birthday game for years. It's often a mild 15/16 degree day.

As a full MCC you can walk up on the day and access the walkup areas on level 1, 2 and 3 just make sure you get there early. I would go as the gates open at 11:30 and get you seat and then have lunch on Swan street.

I feel for anyone that doesn’t have a reserved seat in an MFC only area for this game as being surrounded by their manky mob last year was unbearable. 

Agreed but we do have the extra three bays of reserved seats for our members which catered to an extra 2.5K of our GA members.

Is it an MCC/MCG call to charge members for an upgraded seat? The club should have the power to allocate a seat to GA members at no cost since they’re paid up members already. I think it’s bulls**t they (not the club) have to suck every dollar out of you.

I bang on about their unfair advantage every year. Less travel …more MCG games ..more prime time games ..the bottom line is the AFL is all about the $. It’s hard for teams to get more exposure & attract more members when the AFL favours the “big 4”

@DubDee - you should check with the club as, if you have a GA membership you should be able to get into every home game. There may be less choice of seats, but your membership should be counted as a ticket already sold. There’s no way you should have to pay extra just to get in.

I know - they get in everywhere. Last year, we had Demon Seats memberships, yet there they were, spilling beer over everyone, sitting where they wanted. Stewards just shrugged.

No, you cannot scan in on the day with a normal GA membership for Kings Birthday, that is the whole point of a fully ticketed event. The only tickets already counted as already sold for this game are reserved seat members. This was a decision not made by the club and there is not much that they can do about it.

They were even in our Tridents area on L2 in the Northern Stand baiting people when they hit the front. They truly are the lowest form of life. The scum de la scum of supporter bases, if you will.

They can't even get the weather right a few hours out. At this stage, they're just as likely to get it completely wrong this far out.

    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

    TRAINING: Friday 19th April 2024

    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

    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.
