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.

Sloppy first half but Hawks pressure was high. 

Happy to secure the second chance. 😮‍💨

I only got to see the last half due to other commitments, but the game went fairly much to script I would have thought. The Hawks are no easy beats, and they took it right up to us.

Our stoppage and clearnace work looked a but shaky (this is an opinion, I haven't looked at the stats) 

Lever, Melksham, Rivers and Viney looked like standouts. 

I think all but one of Bowey's disposals were turnovers or goals - he is a bit of a worry. 

Our ability to defend from anywhere on the ground is a thing of beauty. Brayshaw, Hunter, ANB getting back to help out time and time again keeps us in every game we play. 

JVR - chills.

Top 4, and looking as strong or better than the other 3.

Why was trac handballing, does he have a sore foot?

Oliver looked like someone who hasn't played alot of footy this year. Laurie showed enough. Tmac needs to return. Kozzie looks disinterested, needs a week at Casey to wake him up. Viney is a beast... McVee looks good, Rivers is a potential captain.  Hope Fritch is ready for finals. Van rooyen = a long year for a debut season.

I’m just glad we got the win and no injuries. Hawks were always going to be hard to beat. Double chance secured so let’s go to Sydney and play with a little more freedom and fluency.

anb was excellent. Lever Gus jvr Viney also impressive.

looking forward to finals.

Kozzie is never playing at Casey.

Port will know at h/f break that Melbourne won. Be interesting to see how they perform in 2nd half.

They want to finish 3rd????. and play at the Gabba.   BS

I dont . Ive said all along lock in 4th.

If by some miracle Essendone win we'll know beforehand and then rethink the Buddy Circus.

Pies will finish 1 and we'll be waiting.

Apologies to Jake Bowey but he made some rank mistakes the last 2 weeks. Needs to be better than that. Schache a strange sub. 

To me it looks like Bowey has been told to be more offensive? I reckon McVee is still the more defensive HB, with both of Salem and Bowey trying to hurt the opposition with their ball use, however it hasn't worked as of late.

So he is a worry for giving up a goal...every player makes mistakes.

Terrific win but the second chance is a priority asset as you mention. We will need it - just for injuries, most likely; perhaps, a drop in form over a gruelling finals season might cause a hiccup, regretfully. Good call, McQueen.

Credit to the club and players for securing top four for the 3rd successive season. Something completely unprecedented in my time following the Demons, and something to be very grateful for. I actually felt we were getting a bit shaky for finals before the last win streak so top four is a massive result. 

Do they have it in them to find a way to 3 more wins this year? I'm not sure but they have given themselves a chance to fight for it...if we can't take home the ultimate prize I hope we make another team really earn it on the way out...

    OOZEE by The Oracle

    There’s a touch of irony in the fact that Adem Yze played his first game for Melbourne in Round 13, 1995 against the club he now coaches. For that game, he wore the number 44 guernsey and got six touches in a game the team won by 11 points.  The man whose first name was often misspelled, soon changed to the number 13 and it turned out lucky for him. He became a highly revered Demon with a record of 271 games during which his presence was acknowledged by the fans with the chant of “Oozee” wh

    TRAINING: Friday 19th April 2024

    They are out for a run just as it starts raining. It didn't last long, ended up a reasonable session weather wise.  Light duties, BBB, rehab Farris-White, Melky, Salem and Spargo, all with private trainers. They are all playing soccer, huge amount of noise. 36-40 (difficult to get a count) in the main squad, biggest I've seen it in ages. Choco is barking out the orders. Goody has intense body language as he observes. Bowey in a lime green cap (no contact), and in the sim

    ICEBREAKER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons have broken the ice for season 2024 with a pulsating come-from-behind victory over Port Melbourne in which it took the lead for the first time at the halfway mark of the final quarter. The game played in mild Autumn conditions in neutral territory at Kinetic Park, Frankston, never reached great heights in standard but it proved gripping in character at the end at the Casey Demons overcame the Borough to win by 15 points after trailing badly early in the second half.  P

    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.
