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.

Lucky to be in front at halftime. BBB's AFL career must be very close to the end on that showing.

Both Brown and TMac are at the end. Both contracted for next year. Expect both to finish up then or retire early. Their bodies are shot sadly. Both great servants of the club and will be fondly remembered premiership players once they hang up the boots.

At the game, and the lack of (defensive) pressure in the forward 50 is staggering! Ugly signs, and we’re going to get run over if we don’t improve our contest and pressure, Jack Viney excused, and assuming Crows have the legs. Can’t exit defensive with any conviction, can’t keep it in our own. Awful football, except for that bright 10 minutes.

He's been lacklustre. No doubt about it. I think Petty is a better option. But it won't happen. 

I think Bbb gets another half a quarter before Smith is subbed .

Good to see Chandler back in the goal scoring.

We need to biry this side in the third. Are we seriously competing for a cup this year. No more just scraping in fgs.

I think Max is tired from last week. Nice goal in the first but only three touches since. Lever not doing much. Anb needs to lift again.

Milk is continuing his good form thank goodness

All about starving supply, but they’re attacking much more than us, just have wasted shots.

I hate jumping on the bandwagon when it comes to our KPF’s, but BBB is not providing a contest. 
 

 

Has definitely been the case today: reckon he’s been better in the previous few weeks

M crouch hadnt been able to get an AFL game, we should be able to quell his influence but I agree keeping rankine quiet is a challenge

Maybe it is time for Petty to play forward and make Tommo a permanent fixture down back. I thought BBB was turning the corner a bit last week but he's off the boil today.

Adelaide desperately need the 4 points to stay in the finals race. They're not going to go down easily

Minding their pacy forward is proving to be testing and the hit up mark on the wing hasn’t been there. Need the forwards to rotate up to be that option. Brown, trac, melk and JVR.  Adelaide doing lots of block/grapple work to keep them quiet. Umps will chirp in if our forward go the ball in air (as they have a couple times already)

    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
