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.


GAMEDAY: Rd 12 vs Carlton


Demonland

Recommended Posts

The Blues season is on the line and their captain and coach have been in the firing line all week. If the Dees cough this one up the media's crosshairs will do a 180 and will surely be directed at the Demons who have only won 13 games from their last 25 outings. This is a must win game for the Melbourne Football Club too.

Better to let Grundy and BB do the ruck, give Gawn a break, he's tried.

How Van Rooyen continues to get a game over BBB I find mystifying!?

Why BBB wasn't put straight back into the Ones instead of having to do Re-Accreditation 101 equally so.  He'd had a great start to the year... can surely  bolster our (against top sides) pop-gun attack.

It better not be close like last time.

Time for fritta to step up tonight. Van Rooyen needs to show something & have no idea how Smith will go. Kozzie also has to do his role and actually contribute on the scoreboard.

We need the win. Go boys

Can’t afford to lose if we want to make top 4. Carlton are a rabble but we look like we’re running through trickle lately. It won’t be high quality.

I think we’ll win but I ain’t confident.

I thought last week was a certain win but we kicked ourselves to a loss. 

This week I reckon Tommo back will add much improved structure down back. I just hope we can find some structure at the other end.

I have a feeling we'll kick away in the second half after a close start..

Sadly though, a well earned attack of gout will confine me to The Manor. I'll be an armchair expert tonight

Good morning gameday.

Think tonight will be a tight slugfest with us getting over the line.

How can that be, Layz? You’ve got every man and his dog kicking a hatful tonight! 🤣🤣🤣

A lot’s been made of Carlton’s extensive injury list but it’s more quantity than quality.

They still have their midfield class in Cripps, Walsh and Cerra which is better than our midfield that’s missing Oliver. Meanwhile Curnow and McKay can be dangerous on any given night.

The Pittonet injury is the most significant for them, but having said that  Gawn/Grundy couldn’t take advantage of Jackson on his own last week.

Carlton do not have a premiership player as a ruckman 

we should win the centre ruck.  Win the smaller guys as well.  We win !

Tells you where the Coach thinks BBB is at and he is probably not wrong.

Not sure how our fwd line is threatening expecting a 20yo JVR who still learning his craft as our main power fwd?? So we need Fritsch to fire incl goals from Pickett , spargo & rotating rucks of Gawn & Grundy. what’s J Smith role a fwd very unconvincing..  BBB want improve @ Casey as he’s past improving so need to roll the dice with him

    TRAINING: Saturday 2nd March 2024

    On the eve of the 2024 Season I ventured down to Gosch's Paddock for one of the final preseason training session before we head up to Sydney to take on the Swans. Here are my observations from the training session. The session was light and despite it being a Saturday was akin to a Monday/Tuesday session following a regular season weekend match as we played on Wednesday night and the boys had a couple of days off after the Practice Match prior to the season proper. Main Squad: May,

    ROUND ZERO by Whispering Jack

    The Coodabeen Champions have called it a day after more than forty years on various radio stations across Melbourne. When the lads chose the theme from the spaghetti western "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" as their signature tune, the game was uncomplicated with little time for scientific strategy. Summertime was for easy living and games of cricket, footy teams assembled in February, played practice matches in March and the season opened in mid-April. In their time, the Coodabeens saw changes

    I headed down to Gosch’s Paddock this morning for the Captain’s Run in the lead up to tomorrow night’s practice match against the Blues.  The squad that took the field was indicative of the lineup for that match at Ikon Park.  Likely Selections based on the groupings of players at the Captain's Run today at Gosch's Paddock. Main Group: Gawn, Viney, May, JVR, Lever, Petracca, McVee, Windsor, Billings, Langdon, Bowey, Schache, Rivers, ANB, Fritsch, Sparrow, Chandler, Kozzy,

    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
