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.

I played at the Anzac Day game this year. Was all live. 

The grand finals are all mimed. The vocals are live with some extra in the mix to fill it up. I think powderfinger played one live many years ago but that’s about it.

Nah, Meatloaf also mimed his. Was just a poor mix. Wasn't Meaty's fault.

True.  Paul Kelly played live too apparently. That’s why you don’t play live. You end up sounding like poor old meatloaf.  The afl doesn’t spend anywhere near enough on production to give the music a chance.

The absolute state of Collingwood supporters whenever someone dare suggest that Melbourne might win. My god they are a fragile bunch. 

It has come to my attention that apparently plenty of Collingwood supporters hate Melbourne. I’ve had quite a few comments along the lines of “especially against Melbourne”. I never noticed this before. Perhaps it’s just cause we are playing them this week and that’s how they operate. Some serious arrogance amongst them.

I legitimately hope it's just us fans that read into the 1st vs 4th stuff and how 4th place never wins a flag. 

With everything that these players go through they hopefully don't get caught up in all the superstitions and would just be stoked to get this final on the G. Win and all bets are off. 

Plus in my mind we finished second. 4th spot due marchbank point . And poor umpiring.

We're a bona fide 2nd in quality.

Good call Tommy in, I reckon Spargo will be the Sub.  Start with 3 tall forwards, Smith can go back if Turner struggles.

Wouldn't surprise me if Hibberd took Turners spot

Spargo is a bad sub. No versatility and he’s a low possession player at the best of times. 
My guess is Hibbo will be sub if he isn’t in the team. Or Laurie again.

I think after a H&A season of the media telling them and they thinking they are 2023 premiers it has finally dawned on them that they actually have to win Tomorrow , are in average form and play against a really tough opponent  and that it could all go [censored] up for them.

Tmac staring down a possible second premiership medal. At his age and with the state of his body, he would be silly not to relish this chance and leave nothing out there.

He has absolutely nobody pushing for his role either, unless Ben Brown can get a knee replacement done in a week. So no fear of messing up and losing his spot. 

Just needs to stop Moore. If he scores goals then all well and good. Thats a bonus

Spargo more if it does rain and we are struggling to mark the footy up forward.  He is clean and skilful the type of player you need in the wet

Or maybe it's because in the seven grand finals where Melbourne has played Collingwood, we've won six of them. 

And even if this isn't the reason, it's always nice to read this statement of fact in any context.

I was joking haha. Not a very good joke. Meatloaf's voice was shot.

Apologies if posted elsewhere. This might make some breathe a little easier when it comes to our forward line.

Melbourne can be just as effective no matter which seven players are ahead of the ball.

Hooray. Someone finally looked at the figures, not the injury list.  🔵🔴🔵

Tonight channels 7 and 9 are sending cameras to banner. I’d recommend watching channel 9 on this occasion since Nick McCallum will be there. He’s not just doing his thing then leaving, he’s gonna hang with us for an hour and a half.

[censored] got real when we knew tonight’s banner was upon us. We had banner on Monday as well, made the women’s and the backing for the men’s. That night it was all lighthearted and fun as it usually is. But today, as we left the sausage sizzle we were all very solemn and quietly saying “see you tonight.” It’s like we’ve all conspired to commit a murder and it’s happening tonight. 😁

    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
