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.

Where is KC from Casey have we barred the Maynard's from setting foot in the Clubhouse?

Any names on honour boards and the like, if his old man is on the committee there is no way he survives this.

His son has torched their roots.

Wow, could never have guessed it would be wasted inside 50's and forward efficiency that would be our undoing, who could have seen that coming.

We need a Curnow type gun who might be able to mark one or two of those dumb bombs into the 50, since we are intent on dumping the ball forward without bothering to look. 

Hopefully we think about this when we go shopping for players this year.

Trying my best to hate him but there was nothing in it. He will be free to play.

You have got to be kidding me?!?! MRO have been about three things all season- the outcome ie what happen to the player he hit and whether he hit the head. Also how could he avoided the situation- he was front on and  decided to turn side on and collect Gus with his shoulder. Should get 4 weeks.

Geez if Collingwood win the flag something is wrong with the AFL, bog ordinary team. They were just lucky we brought out seasons worst tonight

Another way of looking at is that Collingwood withstood massive territory dominance by the MFC by bringing  elite pressure for most of the game and winning countless defensive 50 intercepts.

I can’t see their prelim opponent dominating territory like we did, and accordingly they will account for their prelim opponent quite easily.

So why do you want Cox to do his ACL?

Because he lined Gawn up from literally the first bounce. He kneed him at every chance. He also kneed Trac. 
He is another hack thug who plays with one purpose and one purpose only, to injure his opponent.

Our game is so much better than these truly awful footballers who run around like some pseudo thug heroes. 
I note Maynard didn’t line up Viney. Because he’s a coward. Likewise Cox. Go for players when they’re open and vulnerable. 
Gawn again proved that Cox is nothing but a hack. He destroyed him.

We kept them to 2 behinds in that final term. We had chances. Friita, sparrow and Pickett all kicking it out on the full. 

Max botching his pass and his shot for goal earlier, Langdon selfishly taking the advantage when he didn't have to in the 3rd quarter. Pickett missing some easy ones.

Trac went missing. Oliver's kicks went nowhere & van Rooyen realised finals is a whole new level 

Think it was Fritta, Riv and Kozzie with out on the fulls in the last - Sparrow had the HTB in the pocket.

There's no way he will get suspended for that, will be a joke if he does.

The love for Maynard on this site make me puke. He jumped off the ground. Brayshaw had no serious forward momentum and was wide open. Maynard could easily have used his hands to block but turned his shoulder and smashed him in the head. It was at worst intentional at best careless. He then get a chance to plead his case. In the meantime we lose a key player possibly costing us the game. Spare me the bs it a footy incident.

Yeah I don’t like either of them as players but I don’t wish them to do career threatening injuries…I guess we are all different though. 
Agree that Gawn dominated Cox. He played a great game.

This one will take a while to digest. I’m incredibly disappointed by our forward structure in the first half. Things looked better later, but you can’t give them such a head start. This is comes down to coaching and is bordering on hubris.

Same. I feel flat. I'd rather lose my 8 goals then get that close.

I hope they look at that terrible first half and how we just kept bombing it in

Did Bailey Laurie do anything in that final quarter?

Did nothing the whole game except fumble. Needs to come out for Spargo next week. Hopefully the kid makes it, but not ready currently.

He made the decision to turn and hit Gus with his shoulder. We are protecting the head and very serious injury no?!

The expected score is going to be ugly.

 

But if we take the British view of the game, we won the moral victory! See you in the moral Prelim, ya losers

    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
