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.

If you want to help your mood, why would you come onto Demonland.

 I don’t think you’d find a bigger collection of wrist slashers on any other page

It’s ridiculous!! Too many extreme views riding the week to week emotional wave (=wrist slashers). 

For example;

Petty is not a forward, to drop him, he is out of form as a backman, to he is our most important Fwd and with him would playing in a Prelim. 

Smith is useless, always injured, to our most important swing man. 
 
Milkshake is past it, too old, to our second most important Fwd. 

Jefferson showing good signs with Casey (on the back of kicking a couple to a few goals), to his a twig, not going to make and a wasted 1 st round pick. 
 

I could go on.

Then again the same people could say they are tired of the overly optimistic. We were going to beat the pies with no quality KPF's

Time for a kip then Old. We lost the game rather than the Pies beating us, IMO. We had our chance and stuffed it up. 
 

I hope that’s not being too optimistic??

Despite our forward issues I actually think our leaders will be laser focussed this week to ensure we don't go out in straight sets again. 

I think we’ll throw everything at Carlton and put in a really spirited performance  (just like in round 22) but ultimately fall short because of the lack of forward talent and mix.

Sorry ~ I didn’t mean to cause any angst. Just thought I would give everyone a heads up. Pretty easy to guess who the culprit was. Another reason to deport him.

I actually think we'll do enough to get over the line. Just. The following week is another matter though. Cheering on the Power tonight.

I’m normally very positive but still feeling pretty deflated about Thursday. So I like reading stuff like this, even if my gut is telling me, or maybe just preparing me, for a loss. A lot of the game is in the head, I think 0-3 in recent finals will either inspire or put doubt in our group. Honestly I felt if there was motivation to avenge it should have been on show on Thursday, not via a spirited 4th qtr effort, but fire from the first bounce, which is what the pies did. They started the game like they had a point to prove.

Anyway, I hope you’re right. Even with a cobbled together makeshift forward being serviced by dumb repeat bombing into the 50 we are a much better side. But they have their tails up after a first finals win. Let’s see. Our group certainly has a point to prove, let’s hope they make it and we don’t hear about more learnings for next year’s ‘point to prove’.

If you're gut is giving you bad thoughts it's probably to do with it's lack of good microbiome and the effect that's having on your brain. I'd try adding some fermented foods to your diet this week like blue cheese, kimchi and a variety of green vegetables washed down with copious amounts of black coffee, guinness and quality red wine that are all rich in polyphenols.

Interesting in the Max interview, comparing it to last year and saying that they're much more focused on the next match already.

(badly paraphrased ...)

I thought he'd only get 1. But yeah the magic lawyer will appeal and he'll get off

No.

If it gets reduced it would be for 1 match.

I am confident the Demons can beat the Blues.

However, my biggest concern is rectifying our forwardline woes.

Unfortunately our first half was foreshadowed by our pre-game warmup. I have never seen our players fumble, drop marks or stuff up as many kicks in that warm up in my time watching us, even when we were really rubbish! I get that it was still fairly greasy/wet at that stage but to me they just didn't seem switched on or thought it was 23c and sunny!

Don't worry about our forward line issues. Goodwin and the team will take many learnings and work on their forward line connection. As I have heard the players say on multiple occasions, if we bring the contest and defence, the forward line will take care of itself. It's just a shame that Goodwin must have such a complicated forward line gameplan that it is taking the players the best part of 3 years now to try to understand it. Either that or his plan is to kick high to the pockets inside 50 so that we can get a stoppage. We then play 2 men back so we are undermanned in the forward line stoppage and wonder why the opposition gets it out so easy but then we get it back to do the same thing all over again. Unfortunately, we could have a forward line of Leigh Matthews, John Coleman and Tony Lockett, there is no way that plan would even let them kick goals, but hey, Goody knows best so get off his

    TIGERS PUNT CASEY by KC from Casey

    The afternoon atmosphere at the Swinburne Centre was somewhat surreal as the game between Richmond VFL and the Casey Demons unfolded on what was really a normal work day for most Melburnians. The Yarra Park precinct marched to the rhythm of city life, the trains rolled by, pedestrians walked by with their dogs and the traffic on Punt Road and Brunton Avenue swirled past while inside the arena, a football battle ensued. And what a battle it was? The Tigers came in with a record of two wins f

    GAMEDAY: Rd 07 vs Richmond

    It's Game Day and the Demons once again open the round of football with their annual clash against Richmond on ANZAC Eve. The Tigers, coached by former Dees champion and Premiership assistant coach Adem Yze have a plethora of stars missing due to injury but beware the wounded Tiger. The Dees will have to be switched on tonight. A win will keep them in the hunt for the Top 4 whilst a loss could see them fall out of the 8 for the first time since 2020.

    Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin ventured down to Gosch's Paddock to bring you his observations from this morning's Captain's Run including some hints at the changes for our ANZAC Eve clash against the Tigers.

    There’s a touch of irony in the fact that Adem Yze played his first game for Melbourne in Round 13, 1995 against the club he now coaches. For that game, he wore the number 44 guernsey and got six touches in a game the team won by 11 points.  The man whose first name was often misspelled, soon changed to the number 13 and it turned out lucky for him. He became a highly revered Demon with a record of 271 games during which his presence was acknowledged by the fans with the chant of “Oozee” wh

    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
