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.

Umpires ruined this game. Totally favouring essendon.

Personally I could give a stuff who won out of these two but my god the umpiring was lopsided and terrible …as it consistently is these days. Bombers def got the fairy take ride with the umps. I just don’t like seeing the umpires have that big of an impact.

Make that 50. 50 frees in a single game. 
That’s 30 too many. 
 

Imagine the Game Day thread if Demonland was around in 1993. In round 10 of that season Carlton 44 free kicks Melbourne 18.

Blues have no recognisable system.

And despite having stars like Curnow, McKay, Weitering, Walsh, Cripps, etc. they have little else. 

I haven't seen this game tonight but they are seriously underperforming.

I fear for Vossy, don't know whether the board can hold their nerve...

Other than AFL employees is there anyone who thinks the four umpires per game has improved the standard?

It’s gotten worse because now you have an umpire further away paying an incorrect free

2018 we made a PF.

2023 for Carlton is looking more like our 2019.

Yeah but 2017 we just missed the finals. Thanks to the Eagles V crows game and percentages.

I was at Princess Park that game.  Must have been a brown paper bag left by the late John Elliott in the umpires room pre game. Was not one word in the papers the following day about that disgusting display of umpiring either.

Was that the game Greg Williams got 44 touches and failed to get a Brownlow vote?

I’m concerned Essendon will finish top 4 with a weak as water fixture to come home with.

Can someone allay my fears? 

You really are scared of a lot of other teams.

    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
