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.

Dominated most of that game but our forward half entries were shocking.

Why we went with 4 medium talls in JvR, T-Mac, Fritsch and Smith when we haven't done it all year and then leave a key defender out I'll never know.

Agree. Smith and McDonald should never get another game. But there again who do we replace them with. ?

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

 

who is sick of McRae  smily silly fool      I am going for Brisbane

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 trice over.

Line in the MCG turf. Not doing straight sets.

Played like we were at Casey training for the first quarter and a bit. 

 

Had we played with the intensity and aggression of the last quarter from the beginning... well perhaps it would be a different story.

Three finals losses, all significant wins on expected score. It's wasted chances versus luck from the opposition. 
should have won that by 30+

All three lost by a sub standard performance from our fwd line.

I don't want to hear about entries being poor.

Where were tge leads or pack marks?

I het Fritta being quiet. He's played two games in half a season.

Jvrs not ready yet.

Tmacs cooked.

Kozzie panicked. 

Chandler  mia.

Smith ok.

It's last years finals all over again.

Ridiculous amount of inside 50s but struggle to score.

Unfortunately we're just not making the most of our opportunities with the list we have. 

This will be the one we look back hard and cost ourselves big time.

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.

Too late, why can't he prep them to have that intensity from the start?

Selection this week has been proven wrong, specially Laurie and TMac.

Double the inside 50s Collingwood didn’t win that game we lost it, I hope that really burns in the players guts, if we can somehow make it to the grand final we will smoke them that I have no doubt, if we don’t Brisbane will and wouldn’t surprise me if pies lose a prelim the most overrated team that the media will pump up like there is no tomorrow, absolutely ropeable with that loss

Goodwin has gone from 5 - 1 in finals, and now on the brink to be 5 - 5.

    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
