Discussion on recent allegations about the use of illicit drugs in football is forbidden
  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    Posting unsubstantiated rumours on this website is strictly forbidden.

    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 issue of illicit drugs in footy, 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.

My grandmother passed away this morning so I’ll be a wreck win or lose tonight. Her favorite player was Kozzie Pickett, or as she called him ‘Aaron Davey’. Hoping he kicks a bag tonight for her!

I'm so sorry for your loss. Hope the Dees can win and Kozzy has a magnificent game.

I shall be heading off shortly and, as I estimate there will be approximately 40 -50 k additional car thieves in Melbourne this evening, I shall be entrusting myself to public transport.

Of course there is a downside. As @Wadda We Sing pointed out earlier this means sharing a carriage with filth supporters.

In addition to this, I am forced to pass through St. Albans, where the train is likely to be invaded by pickpockets and muggers. ( aka @WalkingCivilWar 's neighbours and besties)

Starting to think that the Pies form struggles are being exaggerated.

Smashed Essendon by 70 (sure, questionable opposition but if we'd done it we'd be confident), lost to Brisbane by 4 goals (it happens), beat Geelong with 29 scoring shots, lost to a red-hot Carlton but had more scoring shots (remember, we also lost to Carlton) when they arguably should have won. The only 'concerning' game was the Hawthorn one, but it appears at this time to have just been an aberration. They've been navigating some major injury concerns over that period too, which other than Naicos, are now resolved for them. 

Before that, they beat Port in Port and barely lost all year other than to us. 

It really isn't as unconvincing as everyone is saying?

Comparatively, we've had a far better scores against profile (with 3 tall defenders, which we have moved away from), but for long periods we struggled with Hawthorn, gave Sydney a significant run-on, struggled with North and barely beat Adelaide & Brisbane. I'm not sure we've been as convincing as people think either. Unlike the Pies, our injury issues have actually impacted us structurally at selection too, missing our best key forward and dangerous defensive forward too. 

The old "things are never as good or as bad as they seem" truism seems...true

Help, the MFCSS is taking over!

Shot of whiskey, 5 mins of shadow boxing, a high pitched yell of "Go Dee's" and you'll be fine. If it doesn't work simply rinse and repeat until it does or you pass out.

Did anyone hear Craig McRae say to the reporters “See you in a couple of weeks” at the end of his presser on Tuesday?

Didn't we slap this mob around last time we played them. Gave them a sense of being close to us by, missing lots of gettable goals and giving them the last 3 of the match.

The Woodens have to come up with a plan to beat us, as our way is superior. Be interesting to see how they adapt to our, see ball, get ball game. 

We play our way, they are forced into something different, otherwise we roll them.

There is a chance they go to ruffle us up. Vines, JVR, May and Sparrow say give me more of that.

We will miss Melky, though the forward roles should be the same same. 

Want them all to contribute when it is their time to impact.

Go Dees

We’ve been warned about this. We’re always told to not engage with opposition supporters during the match, especially Collingwood, Carlton and Richmond. We’re also told to refrain from even looking at them. They sit in the bays on either side of us and of course our noise revs them up. One of our member’s 9yo son wanted to bring a trident with an impaled fake magpie but has been told to absolutely not do so. It’s not worth the risk.

Nah the title’s ours. You see, most of our stabbings aren’t even reported to police. Only when they result in death or close to death do they make the news, and that’s pretty much a weekly occurrence anyways.

    ICEBREAKER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons have broken the ice for season 2024 with a pulsating come-from-behind victory over Port Melbourne in which it took the lead for the first time at the halfway mark of the final quarter. The game played in mild Autumn conditions in neutral territory at Kinetic Park, Frankston, never reached great heights in standard but it proved gripping in character at the end at the Casey Demons overcame the Borough to win by 15 points after trailing badly early in the second half.  P

    MAULED by Whispering Jack

    The writing was on the wall from the very first bounce of the football. The big men went up, Max Gawn more often than not, decisively won the ruck hit out and invariably a Brisbane Lions onballer either won the battle on the ground or halved the contest and they went at it repeatedly until they finally won out. Melbourne managed the first goal from Alex Neal-Bullen but after that the visitors shut out every area of Demon presence around the ground except in the ruck duels. It was a mauling.
