Posting Unsubstantiated Rumours on this Website is Strictly Forbidden
  • 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.

Posted the below on the game day thread and it’s directed towards a few who have already posted on here

 

 

Been saying it forever some of you so called supporters are a disgrace and need to have a good look at yourself 

Maxy take a bow

Trac likewise

Melk good defensive forward effort

Boys showed a lot of courage tonight

Took the game on and yes at times they got burned on the rebound but it is a coaching (yes coached) directive we really stood up in the last quarter thought we may have blown it with those early last quarter misses, but a fantastic win

Do we take Jack Viney for granted ?

There's a thread about media bias.

Could care less about media bias.

But the ridiculous bias against us by some posters, who supposedly 'support' the dees, and just parrot the medias weekly talking points, does my head in.

 

I love my Dees and I’m not totally biased to our flaws, but even if we lost tonight I loved that we stuck at it and kept within striking distance. JVR and Brown weren’t great but they continued to compete. May had some horrific moments but was important late.

Most people learn from their mistakes but the usual suspects will again next week be posting garbage on the game day thread vs Adelaide

They are keeping Clarry out so that Trac can get the Brownlow votes every week. 😁

Surely Joel Smith gets picked in the starting lineup next week.  Another frindge type that tries his guts out, plays in the right spirit and just keeps preserving and putting himself forward.

I think he still prefer him up forward.

But when he came on he made our backline much more assured then Petry did.

Petty needs a few weeks spell.

He’s just a born leader and warrior, never gives up. That goal was purely wanting it more than his opponents

Cant be dropped now! 2 wins on the trot on the way to a premiership!

What round did Jake Bowey come in during 2021?   Woey Bowey has a rhythm to it.

Joel Smith the perfect sub. 

Certainly very versatile substitute option but may have earned a full game next week.

The last quarter ball movement was inspired and what we need to encourage.

Jake M was huge defensively and then was huge when we needed to compete.

Gawn was amazing and as much as he thinks he ‘wants to make it work’ - this performance will stick with MC… 

Goodwin and co. are infuriatingly stubborn but they have done a number of things to get us out of our slumber; CP5 forward, Grundy out to allow Gawn to recover form, Rivers into the middle with a licence to kill or be killed through the middle, etc

With Brown back and Petracca and Melksham we look better IF we move it quickly. 

Now spend the next 6 weeks doing that and we are back in business.

Please let it be Petracca and not N Daicos, sick of the media dribble with that kid.

I don't think Whateley was far wrong. Defeat tonight would have been a big psychological blow and could have left us in a potential logjam of teams battling to make finals.

Wasn't it Whately who memorably extolled Petracca's dribbler in the '21 GF as being "TRULY from the top shelf". He still has credits for that...

I love our ‘never say die’ Demons.  What a magnificent exhibition of character, guts and determination.  I feel so proud of our boys!  Max and Tracc sensational all night!  Every other player had great moments. Jees this Cognac is good!

The strategy of replacing Grundy with an additional Max Gawn worked wonders.

Another two Brownlow votes for Petracca.

We saw a Full Melksham tonight. The ultimate football compliment is when you out-body your opponent so well the umpire just assumes you've pushed illegally and pays a free.

Also, a full evening of Joe Daniher doing Joe Daniher things is always entertaining in a 'never again, please' way.

And I swear, if they ever put Jake Lever into one of those kids football ads, they won't need to get a kid in, they can just use tonight's footage of him bouncing around yelling 'Did you see me, Mum?' after the siren. 😁

It is not a small coincidence that when Rivers was up we were up and when Rivers was stagnant we were stagnant.

As good as Smith was when he came on, I think Tomlinson is a better matchup for Tex.

    TRAINING: Saturday 2nd March 2024

    On the eve of the 2024 Season I ventured down to Gosch's Paddock for one of the final preseason training session before we head up to Sydney to take on the Swans. Here are my observations from the training session. The session was light and despite it being a Saturday was akin to a Monday/Tuesday session following a regular season weekend match as we played on Wednesday night and the boys had a couple of days off after the Practice Match prior to the season proper. Main Squad: May,

    ROUND ZERO by Whispering Jack

    The Coodabeen Champions have called it a day after more than forty years on various radio stations across Melbourne. When the lads chose the theme from the spaghetti western "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" as their signature tune, the game was uncomplicated with little time for scientific strategy. Summertime was for easy living and games of cricket, footy teams assembled in February, played practice matches in March and the season opened in mid-April. In their time, the Coodabeens saw changes

    TRAINING: Tuesday 27th February 2024

    I headed down to Gosch’s Paddock this morning for the Captain’s Run in the lead up to tomorrow night’s practice match against the Blues.  The squad that took the field was indicative of the lineup for that match at Ikon Park.  Likely Selections based on the groupings of players at the Captain's Run today at Gosch's Paddock. Main Group: Gawn, Viney, May, JVR, Lever, Petracca, McVee, Windsor, Billings, Langdon, Bowey, Schache, Rivers, ANB, Fritsch, Sparrow, Chandler, Kozzy,

    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
