  • 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.

Didn’t we learn anything from last year. Save this sort of stuff for GF week. Nothing to celebrate. Business as usual. 

Finals Training Sessions have always been big. 
They get bigger each week

Doubt if last year’s finals campaign ended in misery due to an open training session. 🤔

These sessions are always conducted on the Clubs terms. It's about reward for the fans and if you are a player this can be so uplifting. I will never forget the training runs before the '87 and then the '88 Grand Final especially.

Bring them on I say. Go Dees. 

PS Great photo autograph and merch opportunities for all.

Grand final week will they let us do an open session at the G?

I think both teams get a run on the G during GF week. Mostly for promotional purposes.

Collingwood is training on the G this Friday. They also have a lunch after. McCrae mentioned it last night on AFL360.

Love your optimism, Pf. Got us down for a spot in the granny already. 😁

Grand final week… not sure it’d be an open session. Although we’ve been told that after next Wednesday’s session there’s a couple more BBQs to be held at training sessions, we just don’t know when. Of course, this depends on how far we go into finals. Last year we did one before the second final and sadly didn’t need to do another (for the men’s anyways).

❤️💙 Open training at Gosch’s this morning ❤️💙

Those who are coming, make sure you visit the Demon Army tent for a snag in bread! Cheap, delicious and nutritionally sound (sort of). Last night Maysie messaged our incomparable grill-master extraordinaire saying, “save me a snag.” And if it’s good enough for Maysie, it’s good enough for everyone, amirite?!

    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
