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.


Media Bias - What can we do?

What can we do?  SFA!

I try not let it worry me too much. However, it did seem that the commentary box was on the verge of starting up the chant St.Kilda 👏👏👏 St.Kilda 👏👏👏

Take no notice of them is my advice. I think the quality of the AFL media has never been worse. It's full of gossip mongering, click bait headlines ect. We are not a media darling . The tv coverage of the sport is diabolical. No tactical analysis or position changes ever get mentioned. All you ever hear in our games is, "don't kick the ball long down the line against Melbourne" That's as deep as it gets. There is a severe lack of decent callers on tv and radio. Tune them out. The game is more enjoyable that way. Or go to the game if you can. It would be great if we could press a button on the remote and mute the callers, but keep the crowd noise.

The media has always disliked MFC for the stupid perception that we drive Range Rovers with skis on the roof in Febuary. They love blue collar clubs because of the huge supporter base and leftist lowest common denominator ideology.

They threw a skiing on Buller line at Goodwin earlier this season. He ignored it.

This morning on SEN, Nathan Buckley was saying that the Dees are not a real premiership contender this season and Kane Cornes pulled him up on that and did point out they beat Collingwood recently and he said he is tired of the media disparaging the Demons 😮 

Kane thinks the Dees are definitely in contention and can iron out some of their issues in the next 7 rounds ...

Luke Darcy's blatant bias towards St. Kilda on Saturday night was odious. Even though he is a Bulldogs man.

But in the end, I don't care too much as Melbourne got the win.

I think the issue is besides Garry Lyon, we don't really have many TV commentators who are Melbourne aligned.

I have faith in the new online generation of commentators though.

Particularly this guy (shown below) by the name of Caden MacDonald who is a passionate Demons supporter and is starting to develop a bit of a following on YouTube.

Good luck to the young fella! 😎👍🏻

Precious little anyway. Daisy Pearce being the exception; a Thursday night specialist.

Matt Lloyd does the same, anytime we are the topic. I just don't bother listening to 3AW anymore when he's on.

Until this, I wouldn't have given Kane the time of day. This has changed my view of him. 

It's 10.54 a.m. Kane

Some of the cricket commentary has been excellent, particularly when they shut up!

Last night the work experience kid had a shot at directing the footy, could they please show what is going on on the ground at all times. If they insist on showing a close-up of someone's ear or ankle or Ross Lyon ordering pizza use a little box at the bottom of the screen! Surely they must know by now that we all have massive TV'S. I can happily watch two sports at once! (not when it's raining in England - NB Sunny in France)

And another rant, STOP PLAYING WITH THE LIGHT SWITCH! What moron thinks that improves the experience?

Oh, great win, go deees!

Don't forget the long shots. And the mistaken goal kickers.

Turn the sound off!

Watched the Scottish FA cup between Celtic and whoever a month or so ago. They had problems with the sound for the first half on kayo so I only got crowd noise.

Magnificent way to watch a game

Unfortunately the commentary came back in the second half but even so they were far less intrusive than channel 7

Wouldn't it be amusing if all the commentators had to sit an exam on the rules before being allowed to commentate.

Maybe the umpires also.

Didn't BT say he wouldn't believe Melbourne would win the flag until he saw us holding the cup in 2021. Probably still doesn't believe we won it.

I wish, wish, wish we had this option. It's the only reason I don't mute when I'm watching us on TV.

One thing I find interesting is the media claim every gun player potentially up for trade or free agency wants to go to Collingwood, Geelong or Essendon. Amazingly a fair chunk of the media support these teams. Nothing like self interest hey?

Failed coach Buckley has gone down several cogs in my book.

Its the worse lot of miserable naysayers I’ve ever seen in my football supporting life.

Its not footy classified it’s Funeral classified.

I can’t stomach most of them , and only really watch the front bar and a bit of the Sunday footy show these days as anything else is just click bait and unbearable doom and gloom.

Can’t remember but did they say the same about PREMIERSHIP defenders May and Lever and PREMIERSHIP winger Langdon or PREMIERSHIP FF BBB?  Or Brundy for that matter?

    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.

    TRAINING: Sunday 7th April 2024

    Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin ventured down in the rain to Gosch's Paddock for the Demon Family Series April School Holiday Open Training session. Not such a good morning, weather wise. As I arrived, it starting raining, settled into watching some Victory players have a kick around. The MFC squad come out as the rain abated, they had wide smiles as the walked down the roped corridor. Plenty of joy from the supporters towards them, kids everywhere, maybe about 500 to a 1000 of us.
