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.

I’m not sure I can bear to watch us get slaughtered in front of 70,000 Pies fans. 

70k, to 20 with 10k who failed to show.

I purchased a 3 game membership for our daughter at the start of the month as part of the Kozzie promo.

While I  If I have to pay extra for a "Reserve Seat" ticket I'll be annoyed but as long as I can get the daughter on level 2, I will do whatever I need to do.

Need an allocated seat to get in. This is the problem I have at the moment as Guest Passes apply to a seating "area" not individual seats.

Not sure if you caught up with the latest on this.

With a GA membership and having purchased a 'guest pass' the club will send a link to acquire a complimentary 'ground entry pass'.

So your daughter can enjoy the game with you on level 2. 

If you haven't received the link in the coming days give the club a call.

The team have certainly popped the hype balloon that was building for this game given our last couple of performances.

God forbid if we lose to a completely out of touch and undermanned Carlton this week. The Melbourne supporter drop off will be significant going into the pies game if we do. 

The club needs a rocking win this Friday night. A game of string four quarter football and none of this picking and choosing nonsense.

A win or loss is worth 15,000 people going through the gates on KB.

If we stink the joint up on Friday night, then I can see a crowd of only 70-75k the following week.

Has any home and away game at the MCG ever been an actual sell out?  Even the record set in 1958 99K+ was not even close.

Just a few weeks back Coll v Carl was a 'sellout' yet barely 80K rolled up.

"sell out" simply means all available tickets for sale have been sold. it has nothing to do with how many people actually rock up and scan their ticket.

@FearTheBeard

Crowd esti? 

I tend to agree with the people saying that if we lose to Carlton there will be a large drop off which I think will only affect MCC walk up areas. People that have paid for reserved seats are still likely to go and I think our Reserved seat areas will be over 90% full regardless.

One thing that is forgotten is that Melbourne hasn't had a Queen/King's birthday home game at the MCG since 2018.

I think it will end up around 84,000 but could be as low as 75 and high as 88.

Thanks, no I hadn't caught up with that, very pleased if it has been sorted. I had a quick look at my emails and haven't received anything yet. How did you hear about it?

Is this a QB type sellout or an Adelaide Gather Round sellout (you know - the one where half the stadium is empty)?

Uninformed question as there has not been aQB sellout before.

A month go I bought two guest passes with the intention of using some spare GA memberships for their entry to the G.

When the email saying GA memberships will not provide entry to the G arrived, I contacted the club and they advised they were working with the AFL and MCC to sort it out.  I called the club this week and they explained that complimentary 'ground entry passes' will be provided on request. 

I haven't as yet received the email with a link to how to obtain the 'ground entry pass'.  Will let you know when I see it.

I am trying to convince my husband to attend this one, since we all know that when he is at the ground, we win.

So far, his response was "90,000 Collingwood fans? I'd rather not".

 

Just get him some musician ear plugs, I'll be taking mine just in case the end is unbearable 😉

Pies fans must be doing the heavy lifting here, we have been flat as a tack for a month plus now

A large number of the Dee supporters bought tickets before the rot set in, will they all turn up if we lose the next two?

    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.
