  • 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.

Just watching the replay of the Kings Birthday game. Worth watching.

Collingwood had won 23 of their last 25 H&A games

They were on fire and we smashed em. Just couldn't kick straight

We kicked 6g 10b from set shots including 4 posters and 3 that didn't make the distance

We had more scoring shots than them every qtr.

Coll kicked the first 3 g after horrendous First qtr turnovers from us. Only 6 for the rest of the game

They kicked two in the last min to close it down to 4pts but this was a mauling by us.

Gawn was blocked off the ball at every single contest. Not one free. They got two from the same

Viney was immense. Thommo played v well

Surely no one thinks they will be easy to beat. 

I certainly don't.

But i think we will beat them.

By the by, the Pies are currently 1.84 favorites and we are 2.00, with the line at 1.5

That is as good as even money, but i suspect we will in fact start close favorites.

A genuine 50 50 game.

That we will win. 

Odds not dissimilar to those in favour of the Sydney Swans in our game last weekend.

I just had a dream that Clayton Oliver kicked from the pocket to Ben Brown (?) standing right on the goal line who slotted it in to put us 35 points up halfway through the third quarter. MAKE OF THAT WHAT YOU WILL.

Did you have tacos to eat late at night before you went to bed?

I can see Smith playing a defensive roll on Moore he is perfect for it.

Smithy's role as a defensive forward (and as a taller, mobile, attacking forward) has really magnified; I see TMac coming in for a dual role other than his own - freeing Smith for leads against the Filth defenders (and those of Fritta if he plays) and firming the pack against Filth hindrances for JVR. Going to be a rip-snorter of a game, me thinks. Smalls are going to have to be non-static for the whole game, exploiting the opportunities.

One of many fascinating sub plots to come in this game.

I seriously cannot remember a more evenly poised QF.

Should be a cracker and hopefully reignites the rivalry that has become more driven by our side than theirs. We win and go on to win the flag and the rivalry is legit again.

First time we've both been legit contenders and have met in a final in for 59 years.

We met in 1989 it has been mentioned but it certainly was in a semi in 1988 at the G which we won.

I'm not taking any significance at all from the KB game. At 11-1 at the time, Collingwood would have been in a very demanding training phase, potentially even training harder than us who were 3 wins behind them (8-4).  This is now the real deal and it's got every chance of being an epic final.

I was in Sydney for the R24 match.

While I was there, I was attacked by a freakin magpie. Not sure if it was some sort of omen. In any event, I survived the attack. 

I'm trying to imagine the reverse omen, that is, what might have happened to a Collingwood supporter. Meeting a Demon at the gates of Hell, perhaps?

Yep,  dont forget the most annoying DL comment...."sure,we won today but if we play like that next week we'll get belted"  -  or thrashed or lose by 10 goals. just fill in the blanks.

note.  one poster used this comment in reference to an upcoming game against the bulldogs.   unbelievable.

Go to Srilanka and shake a large tree. Hundreds of huge black crows will come zooming out at you. Crows would shred a magpie.

    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
