  • 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.

Bittersweet.

Thank goodness for Viney.

Good to see Kozzie and Chandler back in the goals.

Bad to see Lever and May play like that.

 

Without Viney we lose that game. Hope his limping in the last is nothing serious.

Well those last five minutes were like a walking heart attack but thank god we won in the end.

The biggest positive of today's game was our small forwards. Pickett looked very threatening and it was great to see Chandler get his confidence back.

Agree but letting them kick 7:2 in that last quarter was abysmal

The second string midfield really struggled. Sparrow, Jordon, etc.

May a shocking second half. 

Viney is top two best and fairest.

Good stuff Kozzie and Chandler.

Langdon played a good contested game.

Tomlinson some good things.

Loved Kossie’s game. Smith has done too much in the last 2 weeks to be substitute, but he’s a shoe in for sub if he doesn’t play.

That was one of Maysies worst games ever.

Yeahmay started that come back with a dumb kick still love him and it’s easy watching from the stands.  Good to hang on and Adelaide run Coll wood to a few points earlier in year.

So many dumb decisions made in the last. 

Langdon bombing in the last minute, when you need to keep possession, wow.

Our disposal is still a real worry and the bombing into F 50 oh dear.

But, we won and still in top 4.

Viney just a bull. Gus was good and I thought Tommo was very steady.

Kozzie best game this year and with Kade kicked valuable goals.

Onto next week won’t be watching that game again. Awful, absolutely lucky crows couldn’t kick straight, they mainly refused to go down the line and took the short kick which we seemed unwilling or unable to stop, while we seemed content to just bomb it fwd

Adelaide were playing for their season, to say this was a disappointing win is absurd. We held off their surge and got it done. 

YES.     Every side throws the kitchen sink at us and their next game is usually a poor one. Ours isnt. Dees are used to this.

Now i need a drink. jeeesus.

Norff on top of Aints. Really hope they win. Go dees.

Fortunately, we know how to win. In terms of collective effort, will and hunger, we are as good as anyone. But there are some serious holes in our play which have been constant for most of the year. (brainless handballing, appalling kicking especially inside F50, and unpressured turnovers) We can get away with them against the Crows, but not against Pies, Power and Lions.

Today against the Crows, 2 other issues arose which are of great concern.

First - Crows players ran from behind the play to take a handball, and ran through our midfield like a hot knife through butter. They did it unabated all day. We stuck a few great tackles at times, but their run and carry tore us apart. Secondly, our decision making around contested ball or coming through half back. Wow. I have no idea what has happened to Stephen May but he was putrid.

Great to see Kozzie and Chandler play really well.

Loved the hard work of BBB and JVR. Not huge stats but they worked bl**dy hard. Likewise Sparrow.

Max and Jack Viney - I salute you.

Idiots will say we weren’t good. They’ll also say Pies are going to win the flag because twice they beat Adelaide by under a goal. 
 

Go Dees!

    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

    Clayton Oliver was integrated back into the main training group today for the first time in 2024 after completing a 2km time trial.
