  • 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.

Was laughing at the Daicos missed votes earlier but I’m [censored] now. Tracc should have got atleast 2 vs North

North game 2 and Sydney game 2 also.

Robbed.

They sure had that medal ready to go quickly in Brisbane.

This award has lost its magic, but well done to Tracc and Vines.

Does anyone expect a fair count? The umps cannot get the basic decisions right, how can they adjudge the best player.. 

I hate the Brownlow these days. The wrong midfielder won it, again. Change the voting system. Why don't the clubs all make it an issue and get it done?

Far out! That was frustrating!

Jack Viney 3 votes against Sydney was a mystery.

Angus Brayshaw 3 votes against North Melbourne was also bizarre.

But oh well.

Lachie Neale from the Lions is a well deserved winner.

Pretty confident Christian Petracca will win the Demons' Best & Fairest this year though at least.

Gus had 37 versus North. He deserved 3. But Hunter and Fritta over Trac against North and Sydney is a joke.

Trac fkking robbed in the last 7 rounds 

the umps count touches not influence. they shouldn’t be allowed to check stats. If we had a fwd line and Trac played 70% midfield he’d have 34 votes easy

Yes agreed, Trac's vote-getting drop-off coincided with him spending more time forward with the petty and melky injuries. Pretty rough because he showed extraordinary power in several games to turn things our way.

So many cheap votes for Neale and so many votes robbed from Trac 

Bont robbed. That 3 for Neale for a 20 possie game, when Kelly 42 and Coniglio 38 no votes is pathetic.

2nd year in a row that 2 Dees the highest 2 from any club.

Have said it for some time, the Brownlow is increasingly becoming a mediocre award to win. It no longer goes to the ‘best’ player in the league anymore.

Melbourne players aside, the Bont had a much better year than Neale, as did Butters, Gulden and even Daicos.

May as well call it the best midfielders award too btw.

Until they stop the umps picking the votes this will continue to decline into an irrelevant award

anyone honestly think they can be aware of who is playing well when there are 100 new rules and tweaks and coping abuse over the fence. and now with 4 you only see half the ground

Agree.

Hunter.  Lots of nothing possessions.

Fritsch played 5 minutes in the last quarter.  

Trac carried us over the line in BOTH games

    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. 😢
