  • 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.


AFLW 2023 countdown to Round 1 + Trivia



Recommended Posts

Not to long to go now!

In the lead-up, I've put together a couple of trivia questions for the devoted W crew here.

 

9 days til Round 1...

Emoji-react with your answer:

Q: Melbourne has scored two of the top three winning margins in AFLW so far (78 and 88 points). Which teams did these wins come against?

Was a bit of a trick question, in that it only refers to the three players listed!

Kate Hore leads the MFC goalkickers with 53 (also fourth on the league-wide list).

Tayla Harris leads the league with 58 (28 of which have been for Melbourne). Alyssa Bannan also has 28, then its former Dee Shelley Scott, Zanker and so on.

West Coast and Fremantle.  The West Coast game was at Casey in 2020, and the Fremantle game was Season 6 last year at Optus.  Daisy Pearce kicked 5 goals that day.

Apparently there’s a curtain raiser at 4pm. Our match starts at 7:20pm so I’d guess that the unfurling ceremony will take place between the two matches. I’ll find out, and confirm.

Confirmed: around/just after 6:45pm

Oops, previous trivia question was a fail. Let's try that again:

Club games, we presumed? It appears she has a game for Victoria as well (when did that happen?)

Just watched the Footy Classified Show, and they ended with, "enjoy the week off", as if there was no AFL being played.

They must know that the AFL women starts this week. 

I also did not hear any commentary about the games. If Wilson was on, I'm sure she would have at least mentioned the opening week.

Women's elite sports have such a difficult task to get real support.

If Collingwood was unfurling the flag on Friday night, would the Collingwood show (footy classified) and the mouth piece Eddy, have made a song and dance about it?

I don't get the lack of media support. There is a product there with AFLW, yes?

Yep, you were all onto it!

Lucky Demon number 64.

In '64, the MFC won a famous flag, and tomorrow night we raise our first AFLW premiership flag.

Yep club games. The Vic one would be AFLW State of Origin (AFL-sanctioned that is, women played plenty of state rep footy previous to that). I think the one referred to was either before or after the 2017 season. Vic smashed the Allies - might be a different story now with all the talent in SA and QLD.

    Angus Brayshaw Forced into Retirement

    After 167 games including the drought breaking Premiership Angus Brayshaw has made the heart breaking decision to medically retire from football as a result of a series of serious head knocks over his nearly decade of footy. We wish Gus all the best and he'll always be a hero at Demonland. 😢
