  • 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.


Maynard must get at least four weeks

That is not true, they have an AFL hub up at Cavanbah.

Perhaps you feel that way because of the Gold Coast link and area,  

Byron wear magpie jumpers so I made the decision not to support them when I found that out earlier this year.

Gerard Whateley interviewing Toby Greene tonight on 360:

Whateley: So Toby, let’s start with the Maynard case. Did you have empathy for him throughout the week, with all the scrutiny he had to put up with.

Greene: No.

Toby Greene has just gone up a Millenium in my opinion!😁

Get over guys…I am angered, but we have a game of football to win. MFC, if they are fair dinkum, will channel the aggression on Friday night and win. I’d be happy to win and get a few suspensions, just to make a point. Practice the flying smother bumps this week

You know what always works? Telling people to calm down or get over it. 10 times out of 10 everyone does just that.

However frustrated you and I feel, wishing physical harm on a player is not called for. 
 

Reverse the roles an imagine what you would say if other teams wished harm on one of our players. 

How about letting people vent ffs?!?!

Wishing ill on an opposition player is quite natural when you’re a passionate af supporter and your team’s just been screwed over in such a way. I’m wishing ill on the whole [censored] Collingwood team right now. I’m sure I’m not alone.

Suspect we'll see some rule changes next season.

 

I wonder...

To do so would be to admit error.

Might open a very big can of worms.

AFL might have tripped up.

There will be many a party  gobsmacked and seething.

My true wish is that these Turkies get sued in later years for failing to stop acts like this with non decisions. 

Where is the deterrent?

Talk about precedence. 

The sad thing is, most of expected this. Shows how flawed it all is.

Thanks for the insights guys.

Let's just dream of winning 8 more quarters and then.....

Good night. Kiss your loved ones.

Not to mention that since Friday all I’ve read is Collingwood fans wishing injury to Gus and his entire family. 
But hey Collingwood can do whatever they want.

And Michael long for 2000 grand final l do not forgive or forget

Yeah that was the biggest dog act. I will never forgive or forget that one either. If I ever see Michael Long in the street I will remind him that he is and always will be a gutless sniper.

Are you fair dinkum? Did he say that?

"I make absolutely no apologies for the fact that this has taken nearly three hours.

A footballer was concussed and stretchered from the MCG in a final, another footballer has got a couple of pretty important games he’ll either play in or miss depending in part on what we decide tonight."

There are plenty of teams to play for in the adapted game, of 9 on 9.

I understand your sentiment, I found the area to have a very diverse cultural mix. Get stuck in one group and it is like the others don't exist.

That area has it all, up to you to look.

    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
