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.

It’s either that or our game is now more transparent… 🤷‍♂️😊

The dees must have missed that memo.

For example bb is simultaneously a chance if being selected and having his leg amputated.

I'm guessing Coll applied for an extension given the illness at the club. 

Not much point listing the team on a Friday or Saturday if there are lots of changes come Sunday/Monday.

Other than supporter interest it probably doesn't matter much when teams are published.

I can't stand tom Morris.

One, his voice shots me.

Two, he is clueless about football and can't separate gossip with an analysis of the game.

Constantly looking for the controversial take that create noise.

So that knocks out another media optioon- tbe Sunday footy preview or whatever it is called on sen, because it is now co hosted by Morris- in addition to him being on the Saturday crunch time.

Insufferable.

Makes Sam McClure look like Dennis commetti

If we can't get 'em Monday we'll never get 'em.
With half their best players missing a win for us will mean nothing more than the 4pts.
A loss would be humiliating.

Assuming Adam Tomlinson plays tomorrow - Hibberd for Bowey the change, he has a great opportunity to establish himself with May and Lever and put himself in the frame for an elusive flag.  He has the trial by fire with McKay, Cox/Mihocek then Hawkins/Cameron but if he can weather the storm then he can put MFC and himself in a great position.

100%
If he finds his early 2021 form, it not only gives him a chance to get the flag he is after, it solves many of our problems as it will allow Petty to play forward. 
It really makes us a better side if he can fill that second tall role and allow Lever to play third tall interceptor.

The potential outs for Collingwood are frustrating. Only because a win means…

”Demons get the wood over depleted Pies”

(despite us having four of our ‘21 GF players out through injury)

Or in the case of a loss..

”Classy Pies have the tools to dig deep”

I dont care how they sell it....  how they package it....

The scoreboard will show a win....and a win is 4pts.  

That's all we need to concern ourselves with.

Everything else is irrelevant. 

4pts to us is 4pts not to them.. Finito

Go Dees

Pies have De Goey, Sidebottom, Howe and possibly Elliott missing.

Who else is missing from them?

Yep and we have Oliver, Petty, Tom Mac, BBB and Bowey.

I would say we have more important players out, our best mid and all 3 experienced key forwards.

true… but let’s not forget we’re also missing Oliver, Petty, Bowie and you could add tmac and / or brown to that. yes they’re looking like missing more but we are not full rat power either.

Lipinski is said to be playing - his first game this year at any level so very much lacking match practice.

Mc Stay also said to be playing - hasn't played for two months.

8 minutes ago, Bring-Back-Powell said:

J Daicos, Cox, N Daicos and Maynard all have apparently trained this weekend.

So all the speculation about them missing games due to colds/COVID will probably be unfounded.

They may not miss this game but that is 8 players that will be missing or not in tip top shape.

 

It will be seriously depleted of talent, experience and form.  All this must affect their system and fast ball movement.  There should be lots of turnovers by them.

And too much will be left to too few.

When you put it like that, it’s fair to say that Collingwood will never be as gettable all year as they will be tomorrow.

Whether we can take full advantage of it is another matter.

We have not been the best club at beating sides that are supposed to be suffering from adversity

Collingwood have been average the last three weeks. They beat Carlton easily on the scoreboard but inaccurate kicking cost Carlton, should have been a lot lot closer. North got within 5 goals or thereabouts and West Coast were only two goals down at one stage in the third quarter. They’re just going along and are tired. I think they’ll drop a few games now, including tomorrow. There are no excuses from us.

    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
