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.

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)

The things we do for the team we love!

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?

Its been reported by Code/HS that his little quip angered a few of our officials and some players

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.

He’s a Cavoodle thank you very much and he is angry. He hadn’t had breakfast and I was chasing him around trying to get him to wear the hat 😂

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.

    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
