  • 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.

Lost at selection, lost in game, lost when it mattered.

Totally agree, lost it at selection….Grundy should have played, also Jordon. Laurie and Chandler to be dropped

JVR will be suspended, Hibberd, Oliver, TMac better for the runBrayshaw out for at least a week.Many to select though

Maynard better get 3 weeks.

It was bad enough losing Melksham  but we probably  would have won with Gus not going down.

Yep, I would've sent Angus to the wing. Langdon was being murdered by Sidebottom, zero physicality from Langdon.

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 

How can it burn in the guts?

We were apparently out to avenge a straight set finals exit last year and we came out like that? If that didn’t bring us fire in the belly, nothing won’t. We’re a decent chance for another straight sets exit.

Laurie has to go.

Moniz-Wakefield or Spargo bring him in

Chandler get rid of.

Bring Grundy in Fugg em play him Fwd.

Tmac love you didn't do enough have to nail your shots .

Kozzie so much time panicked when you didn't need to.

Langdon, Smithy why play on why?

Shots touched on the line.

This really hurts.

Your comments about wishing players do their ACL next week was what I was referring to

I would do it again. Maynard is a serial thug. He lines up players. Same with Cox. Bog ordinary footballers who deserve some of their own medicine back.

Defending Maynard still.

Get real. He ko ed poor Gus.

If he gets off anyone can go the smother and do the same.

He smothered and then put a shoulder into Gus' head.

Can't wait for the AFL to rule it as him 'protecting himself'.

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

They didn't dominate at all until the end.

They hung on and scrambled to keep in the game at best

We're you there ?

Can't blame the defence --- only 60 points conceded.

Midfield --- dominant in final quarter after usual sluggish start.

Forwards --- appalling conversion rate cost us the game. Even the normally reliable Fritsch put a straight-forward shot at goal out on the full.

If (or when) JVR is suspended, a return for Grundy is the only option next week, unless we gamble on a hobbling BBB.

Jordon probably to replace Brayshaw. A definite downgrade.

I hope we play Sydney rather than Carlton.

Bitter pill to swallow. 

Shoulda woulda coulda. 

Still think we can make a prelim, and then who knows what happens. Certainly feel like we can/could beat them if we were to play them again

I though Smith was our only forwards who constantly put in. He definitely plays next week. TMac was [censored], so agree there. His one wood has been his kicking for goal - and when that goes, you know he’s shot.

Yep, there was a potential goal for Kozzy in the 2nd. Fritsch didn't Shepard the defender, touched.

A goal to.put us back to 10 pts and with momentum change in the 2nd.

Straight sets to Pies and blues is utter nightmare fuel. Roo presumably will be rubbed out, so we'll be threadbare forward.

Damn I wish we showed better composure there with a bunch of our shots on goal. 

Van Rooyen did nothing tonight, so will be no loss. Smith forward, Tomlinson or Turner back. TMac should get another run

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

I don't think our list is as hot as we think it is dazzledavey36. 

Why does Trac only get going in the 2nd half?.

What's happened to Salo?. Langers and Hunter not far behind.

Lever egging everyone on but didn't dominate himself.

Chandler  and Laurie not very good.

Tmac...I've said my peace.

Jvr still learning.

Credit to the fightback but we've all seen this movie before with these slow starts and misses opportunities.

Pleased with the fightback. 

Bad kicking loses games every time

Tmac wasn't a good selection 

But we can still do this

Pies looked bog ordinary when the heat is applied Cox and Mayonnaise are sniping dogs

Who's next?

TMac was no surprise but really they had to pick him .

I would have gone with Grundy but then that's not going to  happen is it

It's a guess DD, it might be [censored]. All I know is that he was out cold and he's had longish periods out of the game with concussion related injury. 

My point is that no one has confirmed it was a concussion yet.

Give me a f..kin spell you Goodwin haters.  They lost it with to many missed opportunities.  The coach can’t kick it for them FFS 

Two talls in the backline. We don’t win with two talls.

    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
