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.

Demon fans traveling in Turkiye. Me and my die hard son. Managed to find a bar in Istanbul to watch the Dees and Maggies. But now heading into more rural areas. Can anyone suggest a way to watch the Carlton dees game on our phone? Would appreciate any help. Go red legs!

 

Watch AFL App. Used it while I was travelling OS this year. It costs. I hope you can find a good internet connection there.

I enjoyed Istanbul heaps, but quickly got tired of everyone and their dog trying to rip me off. 
 
Have a great vacation.

I think I'm gonna tune in to the SEN fanatic channel to listen to the MFC biased call. I can't stomach listening to Brian or any of the others after last week.  Robbo, Tom Morris and Lily Mithen will be a better experience!

I really do believe we will win this. Not so confident about the Pf.

But it feels like the whole world is against us. Not just the Maynard  Incident. 

But we will coming out breathing fire and jump this mob. Their campaign is finished. They are in for a very rude awakening .

Here we go, the football supporters week

Post Loss....We're doomed, our flag was a fluke, Blues will smash us

Tuesday.....Tomlinson in, Jordan in, Goodwin presser felt upbeat

Thursday....Back in town Baby, Blues are doomed, we are clearly the better side

Well at least that's how my week has gone so far :)

Exactly! We finally found the game through TNT English broadcaster.  A very excited Aussie couple barracking for Melbourne joined us half way through. Just fly in from Egypt.

We look a lot better when Tommo plays, and think we have a high Win% with him this year.....

I reckon there is a bit of a myth in that.  He has played just 8 games this year.  Subbed out in two (winning games) and we lost two.

If he plays this week it will because we have no better option but his performance this year (KB aside) hasn't been convincing or finals worthy.

6w, 2l with Tomlinson in the team. I like him and hope he plays, although it might depend on how we feel about Carlton's decision to go small with their forward line.

We're 1-2 this year when Tommo plays and either May or Lever is injured.

We're 5-0 this year when Tommo/Lever/May all play.

I'm sure we'll eventually lose a game when all these 3 play, but the facts are we haven't lost a game when these three are in the same side since 2020.

In actual fact, our defence was brilliant in the early rounds of 2021 with Tomlinson taking a key forward each week before his knee reco. Petty took over his role successfully.

Just to clarify what I read in the last minute regarding Tomlinson & Hibberd:

We had a team that was winning and playing well with Tomlinson alongside Lever & May.

We dumped Tomlinson after Richmond, brought him back against Hawthorn, then dumped him again for no reason to play Turner against Sydney. Turner wasn't great, but the team still won.

We then dumped Turner to play Hibberd against Collingwood. After a slow start Hibberd was okay, but the team lost.

We are now bringing back Tomlinson to play against Carlton without McKay, even though he didn't play when McKay did play in round 22. 

The question is why, oh why, would you keep stuffing around with the competition's best defence at this stage of the season?

Look I think it's mainly to gaslight you - and it's working, you've never posted anything remotely positive.

Yep, I've done the full swing in mood. Feeling like if we can take out Carlton we're better than 50/50 for the flag.

That's partly because I think Carlton are actually in the very top level at this stage of their momentum, and partly because if we manage to get our forward issues worked out enough to get past Carlton, then we'll have a plan in place for dealing with the rest.

False alarm I just found out. His source was having a joke with him to lighten up the mood in their group chat. Seems they are nervous at Ikon.

I love Hibberd but it's clear to me we are just better overhead and even at ground level with Tomlinson. Hibberd is the smarter player and better run-with player but if we're to win on Friday then Tomlinson will be better for the run ahead of battling Elsa and Porpois Spit in the Lions forward line.

    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
