  • 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.

Especially when it comes to goal kicking and delivery into the forward line

Clean quick hands through traffic and fast ball movement.
I've been impressed.
Skills and confidence have jumped with last years flag.
Stay fit and they'll romp in another one I reckon.

Should swap their coaching dept with the mens.
Love the way they play.

Seems Trac and Bont are destined to never win one despite being the best players every year and influencing games more than their peers. Both got robbed of clear votes tonight. 

Trac getting no votes in the final game was stupid. Getting 1 vote for his game against the Saints was stupid.

The umpires are stupid. I’m [censored] sick of them. The umpires have determined the outcome of games this year and illegitimately shaped the entire finals series. It’s beyond pathetic and as someone who’s attending 100s of live games since the 1980s, I’m thiiiiiiis close to giving up on the sport because of their [censored] incompetence and the rules being so vague etc. Stuff this

I had to check that Bont actually hadn't won a Brownlow, because I'd sworn he had.

You can add Max and Clarry to that list that should have won one.

So the other anomalies here:

We have the best backline in the league and they only get 4 votes between them (8 at the very generous end if any of Gus's backline work counts).  Out of a total of around 90 votes.

Jake Lever gets 0 votes?

Jake Bowey 0 votes?

 

Seriously please take the voting off the umps.

You can understand one Ump getting it wrong but we have four talking together about the game.

That could have been Petraccas only real shot to win, Oliver missing, Daicos missed several games, Gulden and Butters will be a force next year.

The player that hid his Norm Smith looked embarrassed and didn't want to be there tonight.

I think he and everyone here would be much happier with another premiership medal around his neck.  Locky and Daicos can have all the Brownlows they want.

And for any-one who doesn't know.
The girls are flying and playing some ripping footy.
The men should watch them.

 

Off-topic I know, but honestly it would be so awesome and so appreciated if more Dees fans could come onboard for the girls. Even if you’ve never paid much attention to the W comp you should consider it. Now’s the best time, too. This team is an absolute joy to watch. They’re in scintillating form and the vibe at matches is always good. There’s six H&A rounds remaining, even if you just attend only one, that’d be great. And for those who don’t have W membership, a ticket is only $10.

Watch every week. The standard has improved out of sight this season.

We’re a biased lot, aren’t we? 😀

We criticise the votes on the one hand, saying umpires don’t know what they’re doing. Then we use the votes as evidence that Viney should have been AA and that he’s better than Parish. (Of course he is, but our arguments would fail year 11 critical thinking - if there’s still such a thing.)

Right???? Since its inception in 2017 the standard has improved with each and every season. But from last season to this current season the improvement is off the charts.

It’s great that people watch our matches on TV. Attending them (if possible) would be AMAZING! The girls truly appreciate the support.

Awesome! Every person who attends a W match is worth 50 people attending a men’s match. I think. Maths is not my forte, but you get my point. 😊

    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. 😢
