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 time I look, the weather forecast for Thursday gets crappier and crappier.  Not good.

Since I last looked the temp has gone up 2 degrees to 19 now. The 90% chance of rain might not be that cold.

Spargo is firming as a possible selection in place of TMac in my opinion. (assuming wet/greasy conditions) Looking windy as well. Not great for our high forward bombs

Pity that Schache hasn't come on.

 

I read this a lot about our high bombs. Are we still doing this? I don’t think so.

Good. Play players who are not 100% fit and see what happens.

AA TEAM   just now i bothered to have a look at it.

Hilarious. 2 St.kilda players in the backline.  I'd back in the  Dees backline ahead of that lot  in big games. WTF would Aints know.

The obssession with Bulldogs and Saints players over the years is mind boggllng. The Bont excluded.

Without Fritsch Melbourne FC could become the first team to win a flag without a  forward line.

It could happen.

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.

Well then tell him not to ride his knees into Gawn's back at every opportunity

They've added in a chance of hail on Thursday in the Bom forecast just issued

If the weather forecast doesn’t change I’m going to put money on the Pies. I just don’t think we have enough good ball users to take smart options and try and hit up targets in the wet. It’s a real risk that we’ll revert to bombing it in and get caught on the rebound with chaos ground ball that Elliott and the like will love.

The boys won’t care how wet it is. In the first 8 weeks of 2021 we played in the rain about 4-5 times and won them all.
This season we’ve lost a couple of close ones in the wet and some of our best footy came in the pouring rain during the third quarter of the Port game where we piled on 7 goals. 
Us being no good in the rain is a little overblown I think.

The Alice Spring game was the worst.

Predicted score had us wining by 5 goals that day.

Oh yeah, forgot about that one. A squillion 50 entries for 5 goals. Was thinking Port and Carlton only.

We’re 0-5 in the wet this year.

What’s that saying that if you throw a bunch of darts at the board… 

Weirdly, we only played 1 wet game last year and actually won it (Freo-rd 20)

This forecast is disastrous.. our whole game fab falls apart in the wet

I was about to post the same thing. How do you reckon the Pies run and carry goes on the wet? We’re about to grind out 3 wins and take home the Flag. Rain ain’t stopping that.

What’s the minimum amount of time it has to rain during a game to constitute a ‘wet’ match? It rained during the Richmond game later in the year and we won that. Are you counting gather round in your 0-5? 
That loss had nothing to do with the rain. It was obvious from the first ten minutes we weren’t covering the ground well at all.

    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
