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.

Playing on a dry ground against a defence-orientated low-scoring team and having selected an extra runner, I’m wondering if we are planning to take the game on more this week (like pre-season, rounds 1-2). 
 

Saints will struggle to score 60 points. I think we’ll win.

Which makes me think/hope we're  going in with lowered eyes 

I really don't understand Melksham instead of Jvr. Yes Milk may be a closer fit to Fritta but Jvr in the dry would be better.

Love that we are contenders.

C'mon Dees, keep our season rolling along. Lose, back with the pack and the pressure that comes with having to win.

Viney, Rivers, McVee, Tracc, Salem, have been great. Backline are a beautiful unit, the role players give us the style we want, need marking and turnovers to lead to goals.

Great chance for Woewodin to cement a spot.

A bit of media pressure and hopefully the team responds.

Go Dees.

With that forward line I can't see us scoring more than 50 points. They are not much better so get ready for the most constipated game of the year.

With our insistence on flooding our own forward line coupled with Ross the Boss and his plan of flooding opposition defences, this is gonna look more like a mosh pit than a footy game. Not expecting this match to be one for the ages

This might not be the only flooding we have to contend with, just to fuel everyones MFCSS  if the stadium goes under water:

When I look at the weather forecasts, it doesn't seem that dramatic.

My guess is it has blown itself out and away.

Why would you pick a side with only one tall forward, and a slow, cooked one at that.  Wilke will have BBB for breakfast (or being a night game that should be for dinner)  JVR should've been in the side.  Goodwin has lost this game for us at the selection table.

As some have mentioned, hopefully we lower our eyes and try to hit up a leading forward but I'm not holding my breath.

Hoping the smalls hit their straps and have a respectful spread of goals. One outstanding quarter, either the first or last, I dont care. Both rucks to stand up and mark strongly. Hyper-awareness of teammates and sniper deliveries by hand and foot. Overhead handballs should be outlawed. How did that get in there??

Dees by 22pts.

Watching this game with no expectations whatsoever 

Right now, before the game, it seems as though the imagination is stifled by ongoing needs in our forward line and the additional loss (once again) of Clarry. I just hope some innovation occurs to assist Tracca carry the weight of the entire half of the ground - midfield to deep forward line. I have no expectations of a win but it would be reasonable mortar for a fourth brick placing on the ladder. Let's hope Badloss has had a deeply strategic week and received a knock on the back of the head from some errant six year old on how to have players make space and play like a team in a continuous chain of mobile opportunity. Kicking straight would help, too but one step at a time, I guess. 'Carna Dees (once again).

    OOZEE by The Oracle

    There’s a touch of irony in the fact that Adem Yze played his first game for Melbourne in Round 13, 1995 against the club he now coaches. For that game, he wore the number 44 guernsey and got six touches in a game the team won by 11 points.  The man whose first name was often misspelled, soon changed to the number 13 and it turned out lucky for him. He became a highly revered Demon with a record of 271 games during which his presence was acknowledged by the fans with the chant of “Oozee” wh

    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.
