  • 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


leave it to deever

if melbourne and collingwood play in the grandfinal you a likely to see a bloodbath AFL, is that what you want. you dont think melbourne players will not go after maynard, after what he did to one of them and got off, and you dont think collingwood will stop doing what they are doing, cox will go crazy with that knee and foot into everyone in range. god what a hopeless, gutless bunch the afl is.

One can only dream.

I think we need to start a poll. Did anyone here genuinely think there would be a different outcome tonight? I spoke to a number of Collingwood acquaintances during the week (I don't call any of the mates anymore) and said I was 100% sure he would get off. After all, the AFL and Collingwood have prior form. I just realized, was there a book being run on this? I don't think sports bet would have been up for it.

Collingwood (millions of supporters) and the Swans (millions of AFL investment) are untouchable at finals time. It's like Trump. They could kill an opponent and wouldn't get prosecuted.

I personally can’t wait for Steven May’s kung fu smother on Curnow on Friday night

*a note for all the precious souls: I love Curnow and am not advocating our players take out any Carlton player. This is a [censored] take. Thank you

That's exactly where my mind is at.

I know there's a lot of emotions right now but it's going to get a whole lot worse when there's a camera at Brayden Maynard potentially holding up a premiership medal by the way things are falling into place for the pies.

I can't think of a game where losing last week to the pies will be our 'what if' moment. A missed opportunity just gone begging and now it's the hard road to the top.

Meanwhile pies get an easy run straight to the granny.

Yes. I know we gotta play it week at a time but i cant see us beating Collingwood if we make it without Grundy now. If we dont they will bash, knee, punch Gawn out of the game with nothing to lose. I always hoped Preuss would have progressed with us and been the battering ran to compliment Gawns brillance. Now i would put it to Grundy to play the game/ games of his life and give Gawny a clear path in forward half to chb.

Done.  YOU AFL are a bunch of power hungry, self entitled crooks.  I will make it my life mission to ensure you get as little of my money as possible from now on.   I will continue to buy my demons membership, you have my money for Friday nights ticket, but that is it.  I will BYO everything to every game.  I will no longer buy a cent of AFL branded merchandise.  I  will make my own demons gear (my kids will freakin hate me more than they already do!).  I will make a cash donation to my club instead.  FAFF OFF!

The next time we play the pies and some Collingwood player ‘tests’ out JVR’s jaw with their elbow, then I trust you’ll be all there saying whatever injury that happens is fair retribution and supporting Collingwood supporters pointing to his suspension is as why he deserves it. 
 

I don’t agree with this call, I don’t like that Cox did that to Maxy, but maintain a bit of dignity and be better than dog Collingwood supporters? 

 

Jadeds post was wishing (its implicit in the statement ‘test out that mangled arm’) Howe physical harm, that’s not on. 

After the result of Tonight’s hearing, “everything is on”

We have a Player who was knocked out cold, in the first minute of the game, who may not play again. 
And the opponent is free to play on….

It is “on” now. This disgrace will not be forgotten

I've disagreed with you on many fronts @Superunknown but i reckon I'm done after this year also.

Better things to spend my $550 a year reserved seating membership on than watching absolutely thuggery in front of my eyes.

Soccer Australia and their hierarchy must be rubbing their hands with glee the amount of young kids that will be heading towards the world game via their parents after this decision.

Hamish Brayshaw hit the nail right on the head the AFL want Collingwood in the GF with Carlton.

This is only the first domino to fall, Martin will get off with a fine also.

Each to their own.

Id run through the bastards.

Im not sure you understand this game, what is involved...the tactics used, the instructions  given.

Are you naive enough to think a ridiculous event that took out a prima-player ...just happened  ??

You think Cox jumping into Max is just...footy-stuff ( well actually it is..ironically  ).

Its a a very physical game.. its not for the faint hearted.  It can get very argy bargy... but even with all that...there's a line.

They crossed it   Quite frankly [censored] them.

Let’s calm down. There won’t be a bloodbath. And I suspect the AFL is not necessarily that happy with this outcome. They prosecuted for a suspension and lost. Suspect the new Footy GM was keen on a sanction for a blatant head high hit but didn’t get her way. Further up at CEO/Board Level they may be just happy they could, via the Tribunal, wash their hands of any of the head trauma liability that is coming their way.

My 3 thoughts on a very disappointing day:

1. the rules read as if they were written by monkeys and are certainly administered by monkeys

2. this will have negative impacts ( no pun intended ) including participation

3. opening line of class action case "Your honour, this sport allows this ( play Maynard thuggery )". Game over.

They’ve literally done this to our players every time we play them. Not once have I seen our players retaliate. 

Maybe they should, because clearly the AFL says it’s all fair game. 

I believe in karma and I believe that they’ll get what they deserve. Will I cry about it? No I won’t. 

Ok no worries then, Carte Blanche on wishing players harm then. 
 

Glad it’s open season as every club has something to justify it so let’s gooooooo

Hope Brayshaw sues the AFL.

They’ve said they think it’s ok to KO players by running into them after a smother attempt.

AFL have failed their duty of care. 

Hope he goes for millions in compo, they made their bed the AFL.

I spoke to Troy Simmons about this 2 weeks ago. He said Long would get 12 weeks if he did that now. Most importantly he is in fine nick and looks fit enough to play for the Dees today. Troy goes to the same gym - nice bloke.

    THAT WAS THE YEAR THAT WAS: 2023

    When the dust settled on 2023, the Melbourne Football Club coach Simon Goodwin lamented that the club knew it needed to score more to land a second premiership in the current era. He opined that an average of one more goal per game would have had his charges in football’s stratosphere.  Goodwin was right and, based on his team’s scoring opportunities, that extra goal (and more) was well within its grasp if only they had better converted their shots at goal. Take the side’s last six defeats
