  • 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.

We didn’t capitalise but it’s pretty clear we should win this. Just need to come out composed and take our chances. 

Would love a win at kardinia to kick off the end of the week!!

 Let’s go Dees

Geelong flogging us in the tackle count.. most of their tackles don’t count however as they are off the ball. 

It's 70 to 51 Melbourne's way

Viney is carrying our midfield this past few weeks. Such a workhorse and getting back to his damaging best.

Gawny is really struggling. The balance with him and Grundy just isn’t working and it’s effected Gawns form badly now. Need to rethink how we use him and have a word to the umpires about how often he’s blocked or belted off the ball!

Why’s that not fifty against Hawkins? 
torp from the middle no one on the line defending the dribble……..

I was hoping for a 50, then because Hawkins would still be arguing we’d get a second 50 and a shot on goal

I cannot remember a worse team that the current Melbourne team, for giving up goals/opportunities for goals in the last minute of a quarter. I turned to my wife and said, "watch this, mindless turnover coming up followed by shot on goal..."

If we could kick, no-one would get anywhere near us. I know it is wet, but our kicking remains our biggest issue.

Brayshaw is no 1 turnover merchant atm

As a percentage of disposals i would like to wager Lingers is worse.

Gus yes but not as a ratio.  Gets alot more of it.

That last kick was a horror though.

Umpiring is embarrassing.

So Chandler gets taken high but continues to play on as no call.  Then as he's attempting to kick the goal the ump calls the free but then says he's taking advantage.

Geelong tossing it around like a rugby ball.... never called.  Viney attempts an overhead HB and according to the commentators he "may have got a fist to it" .... pinged straight away.

But to add insult to injury just prior to that the Geelong defender grabs the contested ball 20m out from our goal throws out a don’t argue but gets tackled to the ground holding the ball. Definite free kick but nup not from these Nuppties!

Gus Brayshaw. 

We had 30 second and he had the ball with zero pressure. On the wing. All it needed was a kick to the advantage to a forward (at the very least). What does he do? 

Kicks the ball out on the full. 

It is genuinely astonishing how often we do that sort of thing. And from him in particular.

Its just so lazy.

    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

    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. 😢
