  • 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.

The whole narrative about Fritta being greedy is a joke. No way could he get the ball to Chandler without it being spoiled or having to loop it giving Kemp time to tackle or take possession. He did the right thing.

Absolute rubbish. He has form and you come up with a ridiculous excuse like that. That's also rude about Fritta's skills or any AFL player being unable to do that effectively.

Its strange when on the defensive all the reasons for Frittas selfishness are a joke. 

Don't  get me wrong I think it was his best game for the year. He seemed freer in his movement and more importantly was jumping off the ground. Has he kicked straight he would have got4 or 5 goals. Look for a big game on Monday. Hope he is over that foot issue that seems to have derailed his foot up to now. 

I reallly think Bailey is vastly underrated in the AFL and by some Dees fans as well. An  A grader in  IMO.

No, the joke is the ridiculous beat-up/pile-on on Fritsch on this non-issue. He has form? I recall one situation last year where he failed to handball on to Petracca in the goal square and was run down from behind so a certain goal was missed. Even then he was about 5m out and clearly didn't feel the pressure from behind. And this [censored] about others being rude about Fritta's skills. Seriously? Is that what we are doing? No, what we are doing if anything is the opposite. Fritsch had a kick for goal to an unguarded goal sqare that was well within his capabilities, or an alternative under-pressure high-risk handball. If both Fritsch and Chandler had been unmarked I would probably concur with the criticism, but if that was the case it would still probably have been a better option to waltz into the goal square and kick the goal rather than handball it. It's not the Fritsch supporters who are making stuff up here. It seems to me that it's his detractors re-writing the facts to fit the existing (false) narrative!

Didn't catch the live show, was it an on-air filter as well or did we get the full glory? 

I have a bleep button on my mixer. I felt the expletive coming on and engaged it LIVE.

What mixer do you use? Rodecaster? 

Actually don't suppose we could get a list of your current gear?

Great podcast! Kudos also to all those who submitted interested and well-informed questions.

BUT SERIOUSLY! Mentioning "loading" without first issuing a trigger warning??!!

Read the room or you'll be cancelled!

Not loading - increased training loads. 

Or, if that is still too triggering - a heavy block of aerobic and power conditioning 

And in any case, fatigue is the new concept requiring a trigger warning - loading is so 2022

No exuses!

At one point Kozzie flew for a speccie in front of MG when he could have stayed down for the spoils. This has been a repeating pattern, with KP continually preferencing goal of the year/ mark of the year. We are going nowhere until Melbourne gets back to tem first.

Not a lot worse in footy than knowing you are going to be a step ladder if this bloke is around.... Refer a missing CHB from pies...

😀 Just as long as you remember the loading theory ought also to apply to other teams we play. Looking forward to tomorrow’s episode. Cheers, Binman

It will only apply to some other teams we play.  There is no way Carlton is in a loading phase right now.  Very slight chance Freo was when we played them.  Collingwood will be definitely loading, perhaps even harder than we are right now given our respective records.  I will be hoping for a win this week, but will take very little away from the result as far as a form line for what may occur later in the year.

Just listening to replay of podcast.

Love your work boys, but cant agree with binmans assessment of easy draw to finish ???

Look at ladder, we have only beaten 1 side in top 8 and all other wins are against 6 of the bottom 7 sides.

This would mean we have to play all sides inside 8 to finish.

Hope im wrong, but i can't see how  we beat pies on monday with the form we're in, and too think we can just flick a switch and play 2021 footy in the back end just doesn't sit well with me.

I was refering more to not having to travel as much, less short breaks between games and mutiple games at the G (six of our last eleven).

But on the difficulty of the run home, we have 11 more games and of teams currently in the top 8, we play the Pies, Lions , Cats away and Saints at Marvel.

The other seven games are against teams currently outside the 8, including games against the Crows (who can't win away) at the G, Roos, Hawks, Blues again and the Swans, who are paddling, away in the last round. 

The Pies are slight favorites with the bookies, the Cats will be favs but at home we will be close to even money against the lions, maybe favs and we'll be short odds against the Saints.

So of our last 11 games we will likely start favorite in 8, maybe 9 of them. And no longer than say 2.30 (against the cats)

That's not a hard run home, particularly if you compare it to last season.

It's very similar to the difficulty of the Cats' run in to the finals last season i reckon.

Carlton could be doing something to get the extra reps in. Either that or what they are doing in their fitness program is missing the mark completely. None of their mids move forward of the ball at the moment or with any overlap.

True I didn't even bleep out last week's for [censored] sake.

The one after the 2021 GF was the best though.

We have been having too much travel and short breaks in recent weeks to start loading before this week. The next three weeks seem well set up for some higher conditioning loads.

DeGoey will be loading extra HAARD for the next three weeks

Sounds like I was a bit off with the pressure according to the numbers you guys mentioned. It could have been pressure in certain areas and moments that I was impressed with. Forward half was very good I thought.

    THAT WAS THE YEAR THAT WAS: 2023

    When the dust settled on 2023, the Melbourne Football Club coach Simon Goodwin lamented that the club knew it needed to score more to land a second premiership in the current era. He opined that an average of one more goal per game would have had his charges in football’s stratosphere.  Goodwin was right and, based on his team’s scoring opportunities, that extra goal (and more) was well within its grasp if only they had better converted their shots at goal. Take the side’s last six defeats
