Discussion on recent allegations about the use of illicit drugs in football is forbidden
  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    Posting unsubstantiated rumours on this website is strictly forbidden.

    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 issue of illicit drugs in footy, 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.

We weren’t great. They were worse (flat?).

if anyone doesnt think we are in this up to our our eyeballs you are never going to let your mfcss look at football objectively. 
 

thanks binman

  • Brayshaw's & ANBs first quarters would have had Goodwin searching for two sub vests, our field kicking woes continue
  • McVee sees the game in slow mo
  • Tomlinson fantastic game
  • Admirable effort from Smith but really need Petty in
  • Don't think we're able to play Pickett, ANB, Spargo, Chandler all in the same side, especially given none of them play midfield minutes - Oliver in for one last three
  • Would like to clone Salem and put one in the midfield

I reckon we should ask for a please explain from the AFL for Lever being paid a 50m against in the Anzac Eve game for carrying on behind the mark, and the Collingwood player at half time for Trac’s kick after the siren doing the exact same thing for no resultant 50. Really poor.

Yes, it is unfair to brand him with that when there is such a wondrous variety of annoying American types to choose from.

Hmmm, all Pie supporters are toothless bogans with low intellect and poor hygiene. That’s a given….

 

All Texans are inbreed red flag gun lobbyists who wear white pointy hats/face masks. 
 

That’s all  the proof I need
 

Cox is a tool….

The kick by Viney to JVR in Q4 was awesome. JVR was surrounded by 3 filth people.

As good as the famous Harmes kick to Fritsch.

Pendlebury was caught HTB with a few minutes to go. Nothing to see here? And the free kicks to the filth at the end? FFS!!!

Enjoy the win mate. Great game of footy…. 

I thought ANB stopped many run-ons for The Filth, thus giving (when needed) his teammates those necessary moments to catch and beat their Filth opponents; and, he did this, once again, crushed with the ball under at least six Filth players.

Pls Binno.

His fumbles and indecisiveness going i50 are killers. If we lost everyone else would be asking for his head too.

Perhaps he's just in the middle of a loading phase & he'll come good....? 

Then he'll get dropped then won't he.

Not.

Coz a premiership coach understands footy and knows just how hard he works and the incredible amount of ground he covers.

Were you at the game?

if you were you would have seen a player push himself to the limit and beyond.

He is almost always completely spent.

But sure let's knock his skilll errors under intense fatigue.

How many other dees players would have had the aerobic capacity and speed late in the game to mark that high kick from kozzie.

Not one.

He won us the game and you want him droppe.

I edited my comment because it was unnecessarily snarky.

Snarky, maybe.

Accurate, absolutely.

If this was about any other country there would be outrage about racism. Can't you just say you don't like the bloke and leave the anti USA out.

Personally, stuff him.

No it wouldn't. People say similar about a whole bunch of countries (whinging Pom, etc).

I'm in no way denigrating him because of his race.

Great result, so proud of the boys ticka, but the goal kicking is becoming a cause for concern.

And Mason Cox is a massive [censored].

Loved that Salem is back. His contested work is phenomenal.

McVee just gets better and better. He is becoming a weapon off half back.

Hunter cracked in hard today which was great to see.

Viney is having a career best season.

Apart from one shocking set shot, Joel Smith was terrific. Maybe he could be the missing link?

The small forwards were abysmal. Kozzie, ANB, Spargo and Chandler really have to make an impact on the scoreboard. ANB's fumbling will be costly in the heat of finals.  Don't know what to do with Kozzie.

Grundy improved in the second half, but needed to.

Tomlinson was back to 2021 pre-knee form. Kudos.

By the end of the year I expect JvR will be a major handful for defences.

Fritta slaughtered Darcy Moore.

All duck and no dinner…

 

Our structure is so much stronger with a second tall to free up Lever and Salem back in the side.

Clarry, Bowey and Petty are salivating inclusions after the bye.

Just now, Bates Mate said:

After conceding the first 3 goals , we switched on and strangled them. Really worked ourselves in every contest. Bring that to every game and we'll be right in it at the business end this year

Yep.

And all three goals were as a result of poor skill errors by us and resulting turnovers.

More nervy errors than pies pressure I reckon.

I think they scored 5 goals from turnovers - three in the first q. So we sorted that issue well.

Joel Smith has changed this forward line.

One shocking kick at goal but otherwise he added a much needed spark, if only some people (entire MFC coaching department) could have seen this earlier.

Viney lives for the big stage, Salem was back to his Grand Final best.

Today was his warm-up; some of us at DL have known for some time that this ability would surface as a consequence of him playing way-back-when as a backman. He learnt some tricks; reversed these, used these today. Soon, he won't miss his shots...today he was a 4-goal man with a lack of gametime practice. Got excellent reach, hasn't he? Mobile as a forward and finds space.

100% agree. Daicos simply couldn’t go with him and kossie made it bloody tough for him. Watching him at the game is the only way you can appreciate his value. He’s an absolute workhorse and zero chance he gets dropped.

    TRAINING: Friday 19th April 2024

    They are out for a run just as it starts raining. It didn't last long, ended up a reasonable session weather wise.  Light duties, BBB, rehab Farris-White, Melky, Salem and Spargo, all with private trainers. They are all playing soccer, huge amount of noise. 36-40 (difficult to get a count) in the main squad, biggest I've seen it in ages. Choco is barking out the orders. Goody has intense body language as he observes. Bowey in a lime green cap (no contact), and in the sim

    ICEBREAKER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons have broken the ice for season 2024 with a pulsating come-from-behind victory over Port Melbourne in which it took the lead for the first time at the halfway mark of the final quarter. The game played in mild Autumn conditions in neutral territory at Kinetic Park, Frankston, never reached great heights in standard but it proved gripping in character at the end at the Casey Demons overcame the Borough to win by 15 points after trailing badly early in the second half.  P

    MAULED by Whispering Jack

    The writing was on the wall from the very first bounce of the football. The big men went up, Max Gawn more often than not, decisively won the ruck hit out and invariably a Brisbane Lions onballer either won the battle on the ground or halved the contest and they went at it repeatedly until they finally won out. Melbourne managed the first goal from Alex Neal-Bullen but after that the visitors shut out every area of Demon presence around the ground except in the ruck duels. It was a mauling.
