  • 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.

Yes but we will have 3 x 10 day breaks in a row.

We will be the most rested, freshest team in the comp ready to take on the rest of the season.

Three consecutive 10-day breaks is great. But a 14- or even 13-day break is what we’re entitled to and is what the players (or at least some of them) would find way more beneficial.

How else can they go to Bali? Am I right??

I joke. They absolutely deserve a proper break.

Tempted to go to Carlton vs Gold Coast on Sunday just for the schadenfreude.  Suns a very good chance I think.

Carlton should win this but wouldn't you love the Suns to pump them.

Sydney a good chance to help us with a win against the Lions.

They have a very tough run home so if they make they deserve it. But they are not a lock to finish top four by a long way.

a few hard games.

they should win 6 from 9 easy. that’s 18 wins

My ladder predictor exercise after last night says that IF we can beat the cats next week, top of ladder finish is now a possibility on percentage from Pies and Power.  Power finishing top relies on a couple of tough wins needed for them. 

Lose to the cats and not possible.

Better chance of second, third more possible, at least allowing a minimum home final in week two.

Just saying having seen the Dees live last week.

Who do you have Port losing to?

They have Pies and Crows at home and funnily enough play Geelong again in a few weeks.

They won’t go undefeated for the rest of the season. They just won’t. Upsets happen all the time and their young small mids could easily get tired. Or injured. 
They could well lose to Pies, Adelaide, Geelong in Geelong. Hell Essendon might beat them. They beat us!

Maybe it’s because I don’t trust the Suns yet but I think Carlton are due to give their supporters hope for a second before they knife them in the back again.

Last night was strange. Probably should've been hoping Geelong won so we'd have two teams within close distance of us to aim for that top 2 position, but I think it's better this way. We can aim for a home 2v3 final v the Pies and send them off to a bruising Port prelim, who will be minor premiers and enough momentum to get themselves into a victorian grand final where their [censored] will fall out from under them, and we can have a 15 goal victory. 

And Geelong can continue on their way at the lower rungs of the 8 or missing out completely.

We are technically only one game away from second, as long as we keep winning. We have a game in hand of Port and they have to play the pies.

Carlton are a mess, they’re not playing as a team, they have no depth. If the Suns were to lose it would be a massive backwards step on the progress they’ve made this season. Harry McKay is a major worry, watching him last week, when he takes a mark 20-30 metres out with little angle he’s seriously at a loss on what to do. I feel as though when he does kick a goal it’s more by fluke than actual skill. He’s almost Travis Cloke all over again.

Curious as to why you think Carlton should win?

Not in the back against Berry???! Or is my perception warped because I can’t stand him.

A blatant push in the back to push his opponent out and goal.

Ump right there.

Brayshaw said he “nudged” his opponent out from under the ball. The commentators know what they saw but are reluctant to mention it. Or are told not to.

    Angus Brayshaw Forced into Retirement

    After 167 games including the drought breaking Premiership Angus Brayshaw has made the heart breaking decision to medically retire from football as a result of a series of serious head knocks over his nearly decade of footy. We wish Gus all the best and he'll always be a hero at Demonland. 😢
