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.

The flag race really is right open. I reckon if you're GWS or even Carlton you definitely feel like you can steal a flag ala Bulldogs in 2016. 

A Port win would suddenly open it right up again. 

Except Port won’t win. It is going to take a major upset to not be a Collingwood Brisbane grand final. I cannot see either of GWS or Port beating Collingwood in the prelim, nor can I see Brisbane losing to Carlton.

I’m just offended by the pathetic wording. 
Sounds like they went to chat GPT and typed in “write me a banner for the Port vs Brisbane game” 

LOL I didn’t even read it! But you’re dead right. It’s hard to read it without yawning.

A question I’ve always had, is the banner more for the fans or the players? Do the players even ready the banner?

Preemptive congrats on your huge Pointsbet haul for next week (and the week after).

Surely Gil can arrange for his wet dream Collingwood v Carlton GF.   A few more "favourable goal reviews", a tribunal reprieve for Jack Martin.  Wouldn't trust him / them at all.

It’s for both. We make them for the players and we enjoy making them. I don’t know if every player reads them but I’ve seen many of them looking up at the banner as they run out. The banner is also where the players congregate until every one of them is on the field (my favourite part). They jump up and down and pump each other up and smile or otherwise acknowledge us as we’re screaming encouragement like crazy people. All this while our song is playing. Im sure the players appreciate it. I know our girls appreciate the banners because they’ve told us, many times.

I hope brissy win. If we can beat carlton then I think they are a better match up than port. 

I doubt we'll beat the Blues with Goodwins bomb it in territory gameplan,the Pies had 18 players inside our 50 waiting for the bombs all night and the Blues will do the same,We don't switch on until we are 4 goals down like against the Tigers and Swans,the Blues jumped the Swans in the first 10 minutes like the Pies did to us and the Blues will be on fire in the first quarter and it'll be all over.

 

I'd rather play Port in Adelaide if we get that far

No one could see GWS beating Collingwood in the 2019 prelim, after Collingwood had knocked off Geelong in the QF and GWS had finished 6th.

Who’s the commentator that keeps on saying “deadly”? 

Possibly the same one who described Horne-Francis as a "revelation". Yes, the #1 draft pick, who was never going to be anything other than a star.

Burgoyne ... listening to him is like scraping nails down a blackboard.

Hodge ... [insert your own comment]

Have you ever received any praise or feedback from the players about the banners?

    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
