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.

A bewildering call to put Schache as sub in the first place.

Certainly wasn't based on last week's form at Casey.  Maybe they were looking at his block of form prior to that as he was horrible last week.

The only other take is they want a rucking option as back up for Max if needed and someone who can also play either end a la Smithy.

Grundy being the original back up ruck option and also a chop out fpr Max early in the season.  But of course most likely no longer an option so Schache was it (for Goody & the SC anyway).

Think Grundy might be right out of favour.Has a bad club attitude tipical collingwood player

Laurie improved after a poor start but he is the obvious one choice to make way for Fritsch.

I would like to see Hibberd in the side too, maybe for Bowey. Free up Rivers to do even more attacking work.

Pig copped a head knock in the VFL. reckon he won't play next week

Grundy is a Melbourne player deserving of our support. On what do you base this? Last I checked his attitude has been stirling throughout. Typical Collingwood player??? pot the nuphy supporters all you like but there are several Collingwood players who have shown class across the journey not all JDG's.

That was a good day at the footy. Hawks had a real crack, but our class won out after half time. G was in good form and once again we got a good crowd in.

Since Fritta went down we’ve gone 6-1, with the one loss by 4 points. I think if we were promised that after his injury we’d take it.

It was fine that he was sub. If we lose Gawn in the first quarter you can’t have JVR go alone in the ruck. Would be a disaster. 
I don’t know why we subbed him on in the last tho. 

Yes i understand the reasoning as stated... bewildering as in based on last week's 'form'.

Subbed him in the last to give him the opportunity to try and impact me thinks.

As in we don't just wNt you as back up for Max, we'd love to see you comtribute up forward too.  Show us what you got son!

8 goals from JVR, Smith & Melksham is more than reasonable especially with Fritsch to be added (sooner or later)

If 5 years ago someone told you we’d be a top 4 side three seasons in a row, with a flag under our belt, you’d tell them to go lie down.  

I would tell them to lie down because I would have murdered them

Dont give me hope like that

Used it well but defensively was poor. 
 

A bewildering call to sub Schache on for Tomlinson. I understand they didn’t wanna not use him, but FMD we are lucky it didn’t cost us. 

Tomlinson played well. Schache has no urgency. 

You watched a different game to me. It’ll be Tomo’s last game with us. Not surprised he got subbed.

So going by your logic fritta does not come back in?

Providing the Lions beat the Aints at the Gabba,we'll finish 4th regardless of a win/loss against the Swans,so it's a Dead Rubber but we can't rest players because of the pre-finals Bye the following week.

 

No team has won the flag from 4th in the last 20 years but

 

Bring on week 1 against the spluttering Pies

you had some kind of a breakdown during the week. i hope you've got a grip of yourself now.

It was a really tough week. I’m all in this year. I was literally shaking watching this and I’ve got the GF coming up. I’m going to take up drinking and pot again.

I didn’t love Tomo’s game - gave his opponent too much space - but I did love Lever’s.
Tomo’s presence facilitated Lever’s performance. I’d stick with him.

If we win and port loose we move to third so it’s not a dead rubber

Has anyone else noticed how much love Kossie has for Trac? I feel like Kossie sees himself as Trac's bodyguard or something, but if anyone niggles Trac, regardless of how minor, Kossie comes running in like you slapped his mum or something. To me it speaks to Trac's leadership and the relationship he built with a very shy kid(with oodles of talent and more than a tad lethal). Also can't help but wonder if that is part of the reason why he is still a Dee. Anyway don't worry about Kossie, some big games coming.

What I've liked this season is we've adjusted tactically to the likes of Hawthorn and Collingwood. The Hawks are hard to break down. Sure they had no Newcombe or Lewis but we were patient.

Fritsch > Lewis

    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.

    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.
