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 the opposite.

Just give them the flag now and everyone else can take their holidays early. They will beat Brisbane or Port by 50+ points in a GF.

They are scary good and they’d be delighted that Geelong are nearly out of the race. They were the one club that could’ve troubled them.

Hah ! I was raised on Collingwood dominating home and away seasons only to [censored] it up in grand finals.  It's a long established tradition and I hope its due  for a return

I'm not a hater. I hate Mason Cox.

Not sure if anybody here has watched “Veep”, but Mason Cox gives off strong Jonah Ryan vibes. 
 

if you’re going to be up up yourself, maybe try not to also be an un-co dork wearing safety googles.

Pies must be [censored]. Only 34 in front of Norf.

Not [censored] mate, they’re reducing risk of injury, mind you that’s only appropriate for other teams… not for the Dees.

If this was Melbourne playing, Demonland would be in meltdown with whingers wanting a bigger winning margin and sprouting doomsday scenarios

I wonder if the Pies going into KB after two easy kills will work against them. 
I’m probably dreaming

Yep you are dreaming

Not taking anything away from Collingwood because they are a good team, but I am more confident against them than I was against Freo and against Carlton.

You probably need to embellish a little here. 

Genuinely can’t find the logic in saying the form team of the competition is less of a threat than Carlton.

can you imagine Larkey in a decent team?

he is the most accurate set shot i’ve seen. 30.8 this year. and he plays games in windy Tassie. 

imagine home abs JVR and Fritsch next season?

also wouldn’t mind Lukocius

The stuff of dreams Dub!

I watched us miss 4 or 5 set shots that I reckon I could have kicked ( despite my fat guts).

It cost us the game!

Sidebottom massive out for them. All being well they cop a few more injuries against the Eagles. 

Agree with you Jaded. Soft kills of North and Eagles not great prep for the Pies. 

Just hope we have Oliver back for the KB game and we rise to the occasion. Anything can happen.

I’m just worried that if we lose to the Blues we go 7-5 and then a loss to the Pies is 7-6. Top 4 let alone top 8 looking dicey from 7-6 at the Bye.

Timing has a lot to do with it. We're in a slump and spent literally half the season to date interstate. We've gone periods without Gawn, May, now Oliver, Salem, Hunter, Pickett, Petracca played hurt for a few weeks... atm we look like a middle of the road team. Which we might be. But we're losing games we probably kind of sort of expected could result in a loss. Some seem genuinely surprised by Freo, I was frustrated during the game but in the pre-match thread I said it smelt like a loss was coming. Form means something, some of the time. 

Carlton just seems like the kind of team that could push us on current form. They have the talent up forward and some pace. We really struggled against them last year and probably stole the win. We should win but won't be surprised if we lose. They are also due for a win. They aren't anywhere near as bad as form line suggests. Evidently neither are we.

Collingwood will be coming off a trip to Perth albeit against Wet Toast, and on a day less break, with a six day break from today through to next week. We stay in Melbourne and lead into KB's with a 10 day break, potentially Oliver back, Grundy and Max with another game together, Salem with more fitness, Hunter back.

I just think the game is primed for us to kickstart our season leading into the bye.

    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.

    DEMONLAND: Good evening, Demon fans and welcome to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast … It’s been a beautiful last day of September and how sweet it is to bring you our coverage of all things that matter about the great Demon resurgence which we’ve seen over the past six or seven months. How our team overcame a turbulent off season and a disappointing start to 2024 on a humid night in Sydney, turned our detractors into believers and then ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    TRAINING: Sunday 7th April 2024

    Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin ventured down in the rain to Gosch's Paddock for the Demon Family Series April School Holiday Open Training session. Not such a good morning, weather wise. As I arrived, it starting raining, settled into watching some Victory players have a kick around. The MFC squad come out as the rain abated, they had wide smiles as the walked down the roped corridor. Plenty of joy from the supporters towards them, kids everywhere, maybe about 500 to a 1000 of us.
