  • 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.

FWLIW, Alison O'Connor on AFL.com.au is tipping us to win this by 7 points. Interesting...

https://www.afl.com.au/news/1024726/mega-preview-magpies-v-demons-the-stats-that-matter-who-wins-and-why

Yet the odds are still slightly favouring Collingwood. I suspect they might come in again (as they have today) with the announcement of the teams tomorrow night.

Squiggle has it bang on 50% with a slight tilt towards Collingwood. Not sure how that calculation works given most of the models are tipping Melbourne. Although the aggregate model that looks at the top 10 models has it at 50%, with Melbourne to win by...0 points.

The only people I've seen confident about thia game are Collingwood supporters. The level of disrespect and disregard for us as a team as staggering.

Is it just me or are others going through game scenarios in there head and how tomorrow night will pan out when they're either at work or just having a quiet moment on there own?

I'm feeling nervous as all hell and tomorrow will be a long day. I think because my biggest fear is sitting there having to hear the feral fans at the end of the game because they beat us.

That might just be Mr Squiggles inherent Collingwood bias ;)

It’s only week one of the finals and the media requests have already started to come in. Channels 7, 9 and the ABC have asked that cheer squad members (those who can) turn up at various locations this Thursday and Friday mornings for live crosses during their breakfast shows, beginning at 5:30am. We’ll have members turn up, just as we did last year. 

Our Collingwood counterparts were also approached for the Thursday morning outside the ‘G live cross at 6am but declined the request because it’s “too early for them.” True story. 

If Centrelink opened at 6am it wouldn’t be “too early for them.”

I had a dream we kicked the first 3 goals of the game and won by 45 points. 
My dreams are never right but take this one to the bank 😂

I had a similar dream where we came home with a wet sail and kicked the last 5 goals to win.

But my dreams are really weird in detail, the game was at Fawkner Park for some reason.

tmac in the mix

Melbourne key forward Tom McDonald is on track to play his first game in almost four months in the Demons’ blockbuster qualifying final against Collingwood on Thursday night.

McDonald was overlooked for selection in the Demons’ two finals last year due to a foot problem and underwent surgery mid-year due to a serious ankle injury.

But the premiership forward looms as the ideal replacement for ACL victim Jake Melksham after bagging five goals in the VFL last week to press his claims for AFL selection against Collingwood.

He is expected to partner Bayley Fritsch, who has received the all-clear from a foot complaint, and young colt goalkicker Jacob van Rooyen in attack for the clash against the Magpies.

If you can't get in and find your set in 35 minutes something is wrong.

Having said that it will be a bit of a logjam with digital tickets,bag checks and those fake metal detectors can really bog things up sometimes. On second thought get there at 6:30 if you can

They've got detectors for fake metal now? Who would have thought.

And they don’t even (pretend to) scan everyone entering the ground anyway.

It is a scam - but then it is AFL (“draw”, MRP, tribunal etc etc).

I really dont think it will rain much at all now, a shower or 2 maybe.

 

The forecast has definitely changed. The cold front they were expecting on Thursday night is coming in Friday now. There will still be a weaker front coming in the late afternoon, which will make the ground wet. However the wind is predicted to be up, which 1) could help dry the deck out more quickly 2) would add a different challenge to the game in goal kicking and general kicking accuracy.

Pity the AFL are so tight that, like the score review system, they won’t expend a few dollars to provide roaming mikes to the questioners at these press conferences.  I guess directors’ bonuses and overseas junkets are a higher priority.

    THAT WAS THE YEAR THAT WAS: 2023

    When the dust settled on 2023, the Melbourne Football Club coach Simon Goodwin lamented that the club knew it needed to score more to land a second premiership in the current era. He opined that an average of one more goal per game would have had his charges in football’s stratosphere.  Goodwin was right and, based on his team’s scoring opportunities, that extra goal (and more) was well within its grasp if only they had better converted their shots at goal. Take the side’s last six defeats
