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.

Every forecast I’ve looked at says rain will be in the morning. 
Also it’s Melbourne. Chances of this forecast being correct 6 days out is 0%. 

You may be able to trust the forecast on Thursday morning, and that's still a 50-50 proposition.

The app I use has five different forecast models that all show it’s going to rain at some stage during the day / early evening.

The one that tends to be more accurate indicates right now that there will be rain from 2pm to 6pm….. at this stage. 

I find that I have been stressing about the weather forecasts more than anything else at the moment, and there are still five sleeps to go!

Finals are all about execution on the day. I am grateful for the opportunity the club is giving me to make myself sick with anxiety and trepidation.

But I can live with being beaten by a team that can execute better on the day - but after last year - we are due to be on the winning side of that ‘execution battle’…

We look fit, our best players are at least fit with only two adjusting to long breaks out injured, and we are in form with what we are good at - contest and defence.

Cox like playing against us, and doesn't have the worst record. I could see him troubling us in the air. Pre Steven May, he certainly did. I hope they don't play him. I think they will though.

This is a major concern. Dees have pretty much lost every game this season when raining. Our back line pillars go to mush. I’m hoping that the meteorologists are off considering it’s still another few days away

My left leg has been playing up so all signs point to a dry spell.

Well now it says rain up to 4mm and to finish by 4pm 🤷‍♀️

I wouldn’t think about the weather until hours before the game as it’ll change 12 times until then

I wasn't really devastated missing out last year like I should have been. I think I was still high after the flag.

Agreed. Too far out for an accurate determination.

This post may be written in jest, but I really don't like it. Cox wears his glasses to stop him from going blind from another eye injury. It's OK not to like him, but let's not wish him a serious, life-changing injury.

Johnson hurt himself yesterday in the VFL. He is a depth player for them. Wasn’t playing very well, I thought.

I wouldn’t have thought anyone who played yesterday would be in consideration for Thursday, just an opinion

    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
