  • 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.

Now if 'Kiss' isn't incentive enough to get to big dance, I don't know what is. 🤟

I saw Kiss last year (got a free ticket and only went to honour the memory of me when I was six). 

I can tell you from experience that this band really needs a lot of explosions and a very dark arena to pull the whole thing off. 

Going by the weather trends this year, I have a feeling the GF will be a warm one. Get ready for lots of high-definition  close-ups of some 70+ year-old dudes with black and white streaks melting down their faces, and with nary an explosion to hide behind. Could be “Meatloaf:The Sequel”. 

(Mind you, I get a real thrill out of watching disastrous live performances, and thoroughly enjoyed Meatloaf’s set that year)

This is the most bizarre stat…

collingwood haven’t played in the rain in any of their 23 games this year.  

Melbourne have played 6 games in the wet.

How can a side go all year and avoid the rain? 

in any case, Thursday night might be the first time all year collingwood have played with a greasy football.

Definitely due a warm GF this year.

2017, 2018, 2019 and 2022 were all either 14 or 15 degrees in Melbourne. (Even the 2021 GF day was a cool day in Melbourne if memory serves...)

We only had one wet game last year, Vs Freo at Optus.

Yeah nah, can’t see the Club signing off on that. Waaaay too inflammatory for the delicate sensibilities of your average Dees supporter. “Be afraid, be very afraid”  (last week’s banner) is about as menacing as we’d get. Cut to 8pm tonight and I’m posting sneak peeks of this week’s banner which says “And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead” 🤣

*That’s the name of a band so there’d be copyright issues, for one. 

Shame, it's got a nice ring to it.

Absolutely hammered down in Halls Gap in the morning ... not that has a baring on the climate at the MCG, but it is west, I suppose.

So are you less worried now if it rains? Surely our vast experience counts for something.

I have seen kiss 31 times all round Australia    never disappointed   It will be a fun 4 song celebration         Now about Thursday  already nervous and very disappointed in the weather expected.    Max (whom I love is not much in the wet and he has alot of mates too)    Would have loved to see our real talent on show with a dry game.   Please just pull off a win in the slog.   !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I read with interest in this morning's Age that Pendelbury was sprucing that the Collingwood unwashed faithful will make the MCG their Colosseum, presumably with the noise they make. We matched them on Kings Birthday for noise so lets make sure the boys hear us and make the MCG the Collywobbles "living hell".

They have also been used to playing cox and Cameron and this will hurt them.

 

Really good point.

Maxy has less impacting the wet because he cant clunk his marks, and his ability to take contested marks around the ground is what makes him such a difference maker. 

But taking thta strength away just means he has less impact - he still remains a brilliant athlete who can win his own ball and of course ruck brilliantly. 

Cox and Cameron and average players in comparison to maxy. Neither have maxy's athleticism or ruck craft.

And they won't be able to mark either - and without clunking marks both are bog ordinary players.

Are you sure? I think their win against Port in Adelaide it rained or at least seemed like a slippery game.

Kiss singing is just above Guns and Roses now the AFL has this need to be wanted in the world community plenty of Australian artists to do a daytime gig.

Similarly, Darcey Moore said during an interview on the weekend that he thinks their 19th man will get them over the line on Thursday, their 19th man being the Magpie Army. Pfft, their 19th man’s got nothin’ on ours. Did he not hear our 19th man drowning out their 19th man on KB???

The person who gave you the free ticket… I would’ve paid them to take it back.

    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
