Discussion on recent allegations about the use of illicit drugs in football is forbidden
  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    Posting unsubstantiated rumours on this website is strictly forbidden.

    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 issue of illicit drugs in footy, 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.

Lot of [censored] on here about Norf.

  • By and large, they have been a good corporate citizen compared to most other clubs in the comp for the last 50 years
  • They dragged the game kicking and screaming into the 20th Century in the 1970's via imaginative recruiting, terrific what we would now call 'list management', invented VFL grand final breakfasts; and then again in the 1980's with Friday Night Footy
  • In the 2000's pioneered 'selling' games to raise revenue - something the Deez have emulated.

Of course I want to win next week, but let's not loose sight of the fact that Norf are not in the despicable bucket of [censored] with a dozen unmentionables.

There is a name on their team sheet… 

Harvey. I hate his old man with so much passion. I hope we bury them for years to come and pay back some of the pain the father inflicted to us upon the son… and any future players of that blood line.

 

Clarko back, in Tassie. I’d tag Sheezel, sit him hard. We must go in with the perfect attitude or this will be a slog.

Blundstone Arena has not been a happy hunting ground for us, with our win loss record record being 1-3. 

North supporters may be down and out, but they are harder to beat in tassie and even harder to thrash in tassie.

Dees should win this given north have nothing much to play for, but I'm not confident we will give them a hiding at this venue.

All good though, I’m proud of my boganism and I only pay $1 for a coffee (at 7/11. It’s fine once you get it past the gag reflex) whereas they pay $6 for a skinny, soy, almond, whatever, whatever latte. Joke’s on them. 😁

The girl in their new ad must be a very good actress then

Better hurry back Luci or you might end up the permanent sub the way Uncle's going.

Imagine if had something to work with.

Active online Norf supporter coffers are pretty barren no doubt reflecting their poorly state over many years now.

Unfortunately, North have nobody else to blame but themselves.

They make their players unhappy.

They make their coaches unhappy.

They are crippled by an old boys network full of folksy wisdom about 'young people these days'.

I really feel for the fans and for the slice of genuine professionals inside the club who I'm sure are clinging on trying to do things the right way against constant pushback.

However, let's remember they they've still got four more years of misery to push through before their pain can be fairly compared to what we went through as a club.

On our timeline, we hadn't even started the Neeld era yet.

Yeah, just saw that his op has 32 +'ve reactions which i suppose is a reasonable tally; for a sub...

...i suspect he is feeling most pleased with himself...

LOL! Given last week's loud protests to volunteer for this gig, i was shocked, shocked to see it was @Bitter but optimisticwho started the thread!! 

Some negotiations may need to be had when i return...🙃

They had flags in the late 90s. They can wallow for 30 more years as far as I'm concerned. F 'em.

A few reasons why I want us to annihilate North with no mercy:

  1. Boomer Harvey running amok against us for 20 b****y years straight
  2. David King
  3. The brilliant but horrible Alistair Clarkson
  4. This rabble of a club having a dedicated home base and we don't

Despite all of this, they are undoubtedly the least appealing, most unmarketable team in Victoria. They had one of the best teams of all time in the 90s, were prime time every Friday, had Nike throwing money at them, and played in at least the Prelim for like 12 years straight. 

They sure have done a lot for the game. But that they are in the position they are is either an indictment on the club, or a reflection of the club's irrelevance.

that's a good discussion point and relevant to teams like MFC ever catching the big boys.

There is no doubt that North of old were an entertaining and successful team. Why did they not catch on whereas Hawthorn did ? Was it simply the weight of premiership numbers or was there something else

Well well Luci, I'm sure it's easy enough for you to talk about "negotiations " !

After all, you're enjoying an indolent jet setting lifestyle while your poor old Uncle Bitters labours away tirelessly and without reward.

At least tell us where you are so we poor Demonlanders confined to icy Melbourne can at least, vicariously, enjoy the privileges of the uber rich!

Haha.... that's no excuse LH!  Suggest you throw away that travel clock and hit the nearest bar.

I believe Uncle has just sent a very humble retort to your somewhat premature concerns.  No doubt very gracious & cordial as usual.  Betting that will tip the scales!  Then again...maybe not!

    MAULED by Whispering Jack

    The writing was on the wall from the very first bounce of the football. The big men went up, Max Gawn more often than not, decisively won the ruck hit out and invariably a Brisbane Lions onballer either won the battle on the ground or halved the contest and they went at it repeatedly until they finally won out. Melbourne managed the first goal from Alex Neal-Bullen but after that the visitors shut out every area of Demon presence around the ground except in the ruck duels. It was a mauling.

    DEMONLAND: Good evening, Demon fans and welcome to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast … It’s been a beautiful last day of September and how sweet it is to bring you our coverage of all things that matter about the great Demon resurgence which we’ve seen over the past six or seven months. How our team overcame a turbulent off season and a disappointing start to 2024 on a humid night in Sydney, turned our detractors into believers and then ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    TRAINING: Sunday 7th April 2024

    Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin ventured down in the rain to Gosch's Paddock for the Demon Family Series April School Holiday Open Training session. Not such a good morning, weather wise. As I arrived, it starting raining, settled into watching some Victory players have a kick around. The MFC squad come out as the rain abated, they had wide smiles as the walked down the roped corridor. Plenty of joy from the supporters towards them, kids everywhere, maybe about 500 to a 1000 of us.
