  • 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 Demons have made their yearly trek down the Princes Highway to GMHBA Stadium to take on Geelong in a match where we have the opportunity to solidify our position in the Top 4 in addition to putting a dent in the Cat's finals aspirations for season 2023.

Confident about this one. Kat Park doesnt worry us, although we have been worse on the road this year.

If Tomlinson was any stiffer, hed be dead.

Good opportunity today to bank another win against a struggling cats outfit and make our charge for top 2. 

Pretty confident we will get it done but it will be a slog, especially if it rains. Let's hope we don't put together another wet weather performance like we did against the bombers.

Dees by 22 point, come on!

I thought we buried the Geelong era in that prelim in 2021. Surely tonight is the chance to truly end it. 

You can't bury a club like Geelong in a preliminary final - they'll only get stronger.

The only way to truly get the job done is to kill 'em on a cold winter night on their home deck, far from the spotlight of September, when there are no witnesses and nothing on the line but their own pride and dreams - crushed at last.

Never easy at taxpayer funded park as their home record attests.

They are undermanned and vulnerable. If we're about our business we should win. But it'll be tough. Always is down there.

Yea, Finally game day has arrived. 

As Bruce would say...A mouth watering feast tonight.

Can't say I'm happy about Tommo but must move on.

This will be tough at their fortress. They always are.

But we have their measure.

Go you good Demons.

Kings Birthday game I was super confident but tonight I'm just nervous. The Cats are a five goal better team at home even when playing poorly. We have not played well in the wet for a while. But as long as we stop Cameron we should get the win.

The last time I went there it was a cold wet night like tonight and they smashed us,kicking something like 20-3, kicking them from everywhere.  We were our usual inaccurate selves, missing from straight in front, 20-30 metres out.

I am confused by the confidence.

Yes on paper we are a better side. They are missing some key players, but playing in Geelong always means they have the upper hand, especially in terrible conditions.

We SHOULD win, but when you play them it's never more than a 50/50 proposition.

Their season is one loss away from death. They know that and will come out super hungry.

This is one game in which I have no hesitation admitting that viewing from the comfort of The Manor is far preferable to live attendance.

However, I must also pass on my admiration to those hardy Demonlanders who are making the trek.

I'm feeling very upbeat about this game and foresee a comfortable win. The ****ty weather won't help their key forwards and May, Petty , Lever etc will finish the job.

I'm predicting a tense first half and then the Dees to runaway by 4 or 5 goals. The Manorial staff will be busy refilling my shiraz.

Thomo is so stiff to miss.When he first arrived I thought when he played back we had a ripper of a player.He missed a GF and many games with his ACL and has slowly taken his time to get confidence ,fitness and form back,it takes some longer than others.He hits form so they kick him in the nuts again,hope he knows why because we sure dont

I was explaining to Frau Nekkid that she is welcome to join me on the couch for the TV coverage (including any half time jollies), on elf the rare games I will watch from home.  I was explaining to her that GMHBA stadium is unfit to hold cattle, let alone an AFL game.  Basically chop a third off one side of the ground because there is a road there, and pretend it is up to standard.  Frau N will barrack for Maxxi (her favourite) and will sing the song if we win.  Otherwise she will take off to less touchy freely parts of the chateau.

It's very refreshing to hear all the confidence in this thread and for a game against Geelong in Geelong.

People keep saying they're undermanned but the only line they're undermanned in is the midfield. Sure that could be enough but they have 2 Coleman medalists and a talented backline.

They will also no doubt have the umpires on their side egged on my their supporters.

why are we confident? Cats are 1-3 in the last 4. lost to giants at alphabet stadium, lost to tigers and freo. 

Duncan is their only decent inside mid. Cameron out of form (touch wood)

We will smash them in the middle. bring the pressure should be an easy win
