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.

Choked in front of goal 

Choked when the heat was on 

I wish Cox and Maynard both do their ACL next week. Trash thug hack footballers. 

Oh that's very decent of you

Ordinary performance!

Made the filth look good!

Disagreed Bitter, except for the first quarter and patches of the third, Collingwood looked very ordinary

Even a Jefferson would be a better option than most of our forwards at this stage.

Melksham going down was a much bigger disaster than we could have imagined.

T-mac normally kicks those and kozzie panicked twice when he had plenty of time and space to drill those snaps. Poor kicking is poor football.

Make no mistake though we outplayed them everywhere except where it mattered most. If we don't win next week I'll be surprised. And angry.

And we'll go into the next match without Brayshaw and probably JVR. 

Nice while it lasted, but we are not winning it from here even if we do win next week.

Brayshaw may not play again given his concussion history. 

Edit: this season

Slow start killed us,we won the game after quarter time.

3 more scoring shots

Tmac nowhere near this level ATM,i'd drop him for Brodie next week,Maxy forward is a better option than Tmac

Losing a final with + 32 inside 50’s.

How is that possible?

Pies will easily cruise into a GF with a laugher of a home prelim final against Port or GWS. Neither of those sides are going to dominate the obscene amount of territory we did.

Two things:

- We went with the 2 tall backline which hasn't worked this year.

- We went with the stagnant, crowded forward line with long balls which hasn't worked this year.

We reverted to these two things at the worst possible time.

It hasn't worked and continuously gets out coached in big games. Goodwin is still learning but we are being coached to put ourselves in games to win. McRae could see how they were going to win and that's exactly how they did it. We were lucky to be so close, really. We fought back when it was still open for us but we lost it early

Lost brought to you by Goodwin, unfortunately.

What absolute rubbish! We were all over them for probably 70% of that game. They were just cleaner going inside forward 50 on three occasions in the third quarter, that was the game right there. If you cant see that spirit of that last quarter, then hand your membership back pal. A game of moments, that is all it was. They just took theirs we didn’t. Absolutely nothing to do with the coach.

Well those two players are very low class. I don't want to wish injuries but probably Maynard will be suspended.

Yes I would expect so.

As you say it best not to wish injuries

Beyond frustrating, played like merde yet the game was so tantalising close. Two decent kicks for goal was all that was needed, had enough opportunities last quarter to sink a ship thrice over.

Line in the MCG turf. Not doing straight sets.

    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
