Discussion on recent allegations about the use of illicit drugs in football is forbidden
  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    Posting unsubstantiated rumours on this website is strictly forbidden.

    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 issue of illicit drugs in footy, 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.

Not sure if this has been mentioned but Max had his foot stomped on and is in a moon boot. Apparently it is cautionary and he has had scans.🙏🏻

Its friday, its already on sportsbet.

Also means the prelim will be friday as itll be interstate. 

The reason is that you cant give port v saints/gws (whichll be saturday) a 6 day break into a prelim - so the pies will play their prelim on the Saturday. 

Collingwood will be playing the Friday night prelim as the number 1 ranked side, if the last 11 finals series are anything to go by.

And in 2018, Collingwood played a Friday night prelim of a 6 day break, after playing GWS in a Saturday night semi final.

If we kick straight, we'll win.

If we don't, we won't. I think it's that simple.

We'll win all the other stats just like we did against the pies.

I don't see Grundy helping our goal kicking. Stick with TMac rusty and all as he is. IF we can get it into his hands he's a much better set-shot.

I think spargo should come back in. I'm a big fan of his because he can deliver a pass. He might be able to find Tmac and Fritsch on the lead. He has lost his form badly this year, i acknowledge that, and has rightly dropped but jeez we need his kicking skills and I50 delivery. Worth a punt, i think.

? We lost most key stats to the blues when we lost to them. They play a similiar profile to us. Kicking straight is a start but won't be enough. 

Kick straight, stop Curnow, win clearance, and negate Weitering. That would do the job.

Yep, they're definitely bringing in Grundy.

At home games when the team runs out we play the opening bars on Eminem's Lose Yourself:

Look, if you had one shot or one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted in one moment
Would you capture it or just let it slip?

We let it slip against Collingwood in that first quarter of the QF and have paid the price.  It all comes down to that in this SF and beyond.

Petracca needs to play midfield with Brayshaw out.

The Casey player who has been "good" up forward over the last 6 odd weeks is AMW. It's him Woey or Spargo.

Spargo's form at Casey has been middling at best but he has finals experience.

Can't see Jordon or Laurie performing meaningful roles.

BTW... Time for Sparrow to play a blinder !!

Petracca has to play more time forward with JJ replacing Brayshaw

We need to get creative. No point going with TNac and Grundy as forwards. Roll the dice with May forward and possibly Turner. Tomlinson to Curnow, sole job just stop him pack marking. Jordan your time to shine is now, show us that you are a keeper. Petracca back to the middle, all night. The first 30 minutes I want to see someCarlton players on their backsides. Play with some mongrel, don't worry about the consequences should a tackle slip a bit high. Tackle to hurt.

Waffle, we’re not playing May forward and I’m almost certain Tomlinson won’t play. We play tough, hard football every week. If you haven’t seen that already I can’t help you.

    TRAINING: Friday 19th April 2024

    They are out for a run just as it starts raining. It didn't last long, ended up a reasonable session weather wise.  Light duties, BBB, rehab Farris-White, Melky, Salem and Spargo, all with private trainers. They are all playing soccer, huge amount of noise. 36-40 (difficult to get a count) in the main squad, biggest I've seen it in ages. Choco is barking out the orders. Goody has intense body language as he observes. Bowey in a lime green cap (no contact), and in the sim

    ICEBREAKER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons have broken the ice for season 2024 with a pulsating come-from-behind victory over Port Melbourne in which it took the lead for the first time at the halfway mark of the final quarter. The game played in mild Autumn conditions in neutral territory at Kinetic Park, Frankston, never reached great heights in standard but it proved gripping in character at the end at the Casey Demons overcame the Borough to win by 15 points after trailing badly early in the second half.  P

    MAULED by Whispering Jack

    The writing was on the wall from the very first bounce of the football. The big men went up, Max Gawn more often than not, decisively won the ruck hit out and invariably a Brisbane Lions onballer either won the battle on the ground or halved the contest and they went at it repeatedly until they finally won out. Melbourne managed the first goal from Alex Neal-Bullen but after that the visitors shut out every area of Demon presence around the ground except in the ruck duels. It was a mauling.
