  • 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.

Love your optimism,  We are as good as anyside in this finals race, Now I think whoever wins Thursday will win the last one.  So its all out there as I see it.  No holding back. And I think we have been hiding our ability a bit.

While I do not like the wet weather, we have time to prepare for it and the Colliwobbles have to play it it as well. So their  plans are stuffed.  just as much as ours might be,  Go Dees onto the flag..

Concur... winner of thursday wins.....it 😉

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. 

In that case can you put a giant pair of sunglasses on the reverse side?

It's 32 minutes can't bring myself to listen to it but wouldn't mind a summation

I haven't listened to it, but I'll have a go:

Everything we've done, we've done to qualify. We've achieved that and we start again.

Geez, you wouldn't want to be anywhere else than Melbourne in spring.

Nick was desperate to play, and might have if this was an elimination game

No, no,  no reason to be anything but positive.

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. 

I want to know, Collingwood, have you ever seen the rain?

I assume you're referring to Scotty's comment about being a pies crowd as in a home game.

If so Scott's degree in rocket science must still be in the mail.

From the University of Damoa I guess. Like Saul's law degree.

Every Collingwood fan I know or have seen write on bigfooty have been painful.
I don’t know if I should even turn up.. apparently there’s no way we beat them.

Also been reading post on bigfooty and Facebook by Collingwood fans trying to get the word out to start the collingwooooooood chant a minute before the game. God help me haha

Low key would love for them to do that and lose and we can all gracefully give it back

Rd’s 21-23 the Pies conceded over  100 points, the only other 2 teams to concede over 100 points three weeks in a row were North and the Eagles. 
 

Rd’s 22-24 we conceded 60, 60, 56.

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.

We beat Collingwood in the GF 1960 in the wet so this could be a good omen. 🙄.    They were credited with 2.2.14 but if there was score review back then, yes even the garbage they have today, it would have been 1.2.8.

this band really needs a lot of explosions and a very dark arena to pull the whole thing off.

Just wheel them on stage unplugged & play the 'Dynasty' album over the PA system.

Listening to Jono Brown and Buckley having a crack at Garry Lyon over whether the Melbourne fans will turn up on Thursday on Fox Footy makes me wanna throw up. What is with these morons. The game is a sellout! Have they any idea? This myth about us having small crowds has been dispelled by stats again this year. Pizz of Bucks and Brown. Then having Lyon bow to there jibes and urge Dees fans to show up, just get stuffed

KISS, bloody hell I was listening to them in the roller disco, Mornington in 1982, the world has turned. I am old, but it doesn't mean I need to see someone playing from my vintage. It needs to be Australian, however the best of our stadium rockers have gone past it, in terms of live performance (Oils try hard though).  Midnight Oil, AC/DC, Barnes, Crowded House, Nick Cave, would hate to see them have a go and just reflect faded glory.

So I reckon Hilltop hoods, while not rock, have a big sound and a couple of songs that would suit: (1955 is a favorite for a reason) but read to the lyrics from 'The Thirst'.

We have the thirst
We have the hunger
We dive head first into the wonder

Here are the AFL and Melb's average tackles and contested possessions per game for the past three H/A seasons:

2023    AFL Tackles  61.8     Melb  61.7        AFL Cont.poss  136       Melb  145.7

2022    AFL Tackles  58.3    Melb  56.5       AFL Cont.poss   136.9    Melb  148.4

2021    AFL Tackles  57.4     Melb  62.2        AFL Cont.poss  136       Melb  148.6

Over these three years, Melb consistently had the highest contested possessions. Our tackling was in the mid-range this year(better than last year), but we had two recent high numbers: 88 tackles against Carl in Round 22 (Carl 87), and 79 tackles against Syd in Round 24 (Syd 76). In the Sydney game, Viney, ANB and Mills(Syd) each made 12 tackles, the highest individual number among all the games in Round 24. I reckon ANB has never laid so many tackles in a single game before(his average tackles per game was 4.7 this year). He is in great form.

    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
