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.

Miraculously only 4 points down at half time.

I hope Goody peels the paint off the walls at half time. 

Don’t think goody has it in him. Need a good old fashioned spray. Hope choco has a crack at em

Well we couldn't have played much worse, particularly in that first quarter, and we're only 4 points down.

Pressure still nowhere near the standard it needs to be and the amount of fumbles is concerning. Is it wet down there?

I've respected the way Harmes has fought to carve out a career but his time is up for us. Soem players need to figure out they're playing for a spot in our best 22 come finals. Oliver and Fritsch are automatic ins.

He sprayed Gawn at half time last week. He absolutely has it in him. Did you not watch him as a player?

Umpiring is embarrassing.  I’ve watched more footy this weekend than I have for a while and I had actually begun to hope the umpiring had turned the corner.  That was an illusion obviously.

It's been shocking all weekend.  Someone got the ball blatantly knocked out of his hands yesterday too and again no 50 to be seen.  Really poor.

Quite a few look a long way off it today. Kozi , Max, Chin , Viney keeping us in it. Geez Harmes looks a shadow of himself tho… it’s sad to see him like this. I think this is the last we’ll see of him. 

Agree. But I thought that last week, and here he is!!!

We don’t have the killer mongrel instinct in us . Goody and gawn leadership culture doesn’t give us the killer instinct 

Which team does? We beat North by 90 earlier in the year. Did we lose our "killer instinct" between then and now?

This has mostly been an issue with our bottom 8-10 players absolutely not showing up, and that's on them to fix.

Would love to know Viney’s TOG in the first half. I would say it’s low. We are managing the mids loads today and I expect he will play most of the last quarter and we will hopefully run over the top of them.

Always like this down there, that end has all the scores. Next qtr they just need to go defensive and counter punch them in the last with the wind

Little to no wind today, so should have zero impact

Hahahaha, I find I can remain calm in these games until the last quarter. If they get 30 up with 10 to play I’ll throw my dog off the verandah

While that was horribly frustrating and saddening, what it shows is that we can still find a foothold in games even when the game isn’t on our terms. Its a contrast to the Pies who only have one way back in to games.

It still bewilders me that Hibberd is onthe bench as a sub when he is one of our best defenders. Plus he’s coming off 31 possessions last week at Casey. We need his foot skills desperately.

    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
