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.

Need to avoid being the first team in the current finals system to go out in straight sets two years in a row.

Wild to think we haven’t won a final since 2021.

We will. The media can go and get .....

Seems to be a Carlton intra club going by the media.

Also we have umpire #22 so #freekickcarlton will be in full effect. 

Faaaark why is this umpire doing finals?!

I'll be heading in quite early today to enjoy a couple pf pre game coldies. Perhaps I should call it a pre game celebration as I'm extremely , highly, fully confident of a win!

There has been a lot of criticism of selection but to this I say 'bah" - we could play the drovers dog at CHF and still beat these pretenders.

Prediction - All over at 3/4 time.

Trac, Viney, Lever and a few other senior players disappointed last day out. They won't be as poor again.

Dry deck so no excuses for poor goal kicking. TMac and Fritsch will be better tonight

Carlton faded badly against the Swans and should have lost. We'll run over the top of them.

Max to lead the way as usual. He's a champion.

Dees by 25 points

Just cannot see how Smith and Tmac as our two main talls are going to kick a winning score. Chandler and Pickett have barely fired a shot the last couple of weeks as well.

The brunt of it all will be left to Fritsch unfortunately. 

Carlton have all the momentum and emotion wave going with them where as I question if the the mental and emotional toll from all the Brayshaw fallout will have an effect. 

Prove me wrong otherwise Melbourne. 

Pretty sure your not alone in thinking this. Throw in Spargo whose been out of this team for a while and yea, it's a nervous wait.

And Tom McDonald you have been given quite a few chances. 

But Im hoping Fritta will excel in these dry conditions and Kozzie and Chandler to put on the proverbial clinic.

Let's move the ball into our fwd line with speed and precision. 

No way Viney will have another quiet one. He will dominate tonight.

The big factor in this game is motivation. I imagine this close knit bunch are still fuming over poor Gus.

Not just the dog act itself but over all  the pundits who supported it.

The same ones who are delighting in hoping we lose four finals in a row.

Aint gunna happen.

If Gus does the pregame talk, we will win this on pure adrenaline.  This will not be a slow start.

The blues caught us napping a few times last game we met, but things have changed. 

If I can quote that strange orange man, I think this will be a game of "fire and fury" from us. 

I'm still so pi33ed off, I just want us to play a gf now so we can have some old fashioned justice. And I know it's wrong to advocate violence but I just really don't care. The Afl certainly doesn't.

We'll be fine tonight...  with our finals experience....
Yep all good ...oh wait...lost our last 3 finals... going well..hmm 

We'll  need to be ON from the first bounce... that'd be novel !!

Goodwin is backing his system  ( there is NO fwd system )..  he is expecting the goals to come from ???   Our kicking has been [censored]..  Petty was ok.. oh wait..  Milky was great....oh wait again..  Rooyen can kick...  oh oh...   Fritch got the yips... hasnt been too crash hot back from injury..   no one can hit a barn.
My advice to self ....get on the beers !! ;) Go Dees ( just not out the door....again ) lol

I agree BBO, I feel pretty good about the game today. Reckon we'll be fired up in the 1st quarter and likely have 3-4 goals on them early.

It's Game Day and the Demons take on the Blues in a sudden death final at the MCG. A win for the Dees will see them face the Lions at their fortress at the Gabba in Brisbane and a loss will see them bundled out of the finals in straight sets for the second season in a row.

    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
