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.

Genuine question, is the AFL (by threat of litigation) in 10 years time going to look more like a semi-contact Gaelic football? Is that where this is going?

I think it’s well and truly heading that way, and we will see it sooner than 10 years. We really are the biggest knee-jerk, spineless and feeble society in the western world.

Of all the contentious decisions of late, this maybe the silliest yet!!!

It's probably not, it's the Tribunal one last week.

This one was run on legal technicalities, not the legality of the incident.

What the Appeals Board said is that the Tribunal didn't get it wrong, on the Hawthorn legal arguments raised.

The Tribunal did get it wrong, when looking at it as an incident and finding it deserved 3 weeks.

If the Tribunal had given him a week, which was the worst he deserved, it would have ended there.

nothing in that tackle.

Other than he could have broken the kid's neck.

It was a very dangerous incident and he deserved a few weeks.

Carlton as usual get away with murder.

I don't think there is another body within the AFL system. 

Maybe a DL lawyer knows if the Courts are an option.

But I doubt the Hawks would take that option.

Yes, yes and yes.

Who knows where it's all going. Maybe in 50 years science and technology will have advanced to a point where you can wirelessly insert a layer of extra protection to sit between the brain and the skull and increasingly prevent concussion, you never know with the rate things move.

But until that time the semi-contact route looks likely.

The hypocrites, during the off season I think, said that gut punches were not to be tolerated - unless of course the assailant is named Dustin Martin in which case they will get a slap on the wrist with a wet lettuce.

And I couldn't believe John Longmire saying that the case involving his player was an accident - he charged him and concussed him.  FMD.

Rampe can concuss an opponent way off the ball - an accident.  
Bizarre. 
Swans still hoping for a finals place.

The Rampe justification of letting him off is so wild it’s actually unhinged 

Absolute circus

Not when taken in the right context which is that the Swans play the Dockers next up and allowing them an extra player is beneficial to the Freo death riding cause.

Exactly Chelly and we dropped the ball by not mentioning this in the Deathriding thread. 

Apologies if someone mentioned this in the Deathriding thread.

Freo play Eagles and Hawks and if they beat them and Swans, pick 4 is probably gone.

Lose to Swans and they need both wins to move up, but a win by sides above them in last 5 games will stop that.

Hope you are right though Luci.

    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
