    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.


    Thank you for your continued support & understanding. Go Dees.

VOTES: SF vs Carlton


Recommended Posts

  • Demonland changed the title to VOTES: SF vs Carlton

6 May - kept Curnow quiet all night.

5 Gawn - another top effort.

4 Petracca - powerful bursts but he still can't kick straight.

3 Lever - some key intercepts early.

2 Smith - better than Fritsch on the night.

1 Oliver - but nowhere near his best.

Please say goodbye: McDonald and Jordon.

6 May - Had Curnow's measure on all but one play. It was almost like watching him blitz Buddy last year. This time he almost got us over the line.

5 Kozzie - A couple of moments of madness but just a spark all night.

4 Hunter - From the word go realised his role was to negate Acres and just was so smart. Voss had to switch Acres wing  late.

3 Viney - Always working his butt off, although not quite as damaging as previous weeks.

2 Petracca - A couple of errant shots at goal, but gave our forward line some real spunk and won a few clearances in the second half when moved back into the middle after halftime to try and curb Carlton's centre square dominance.

1 Salem - Hard to believe after his insipid form of late, but Sallo was back to being clever with his chip kicks and went back to providing us with run out of defence.

4 J Smith - Why does this guy get NO love on demonland? competed all night, 4 goals basically, given Kozzie stole one off him with his undisciplined selfish reversal free kick

-1 viney (undid great work with shockingly predictable last kick)

-2 Fritsch (needed more)

-3 Chandler (great early season but faded)

-4 Pickett (so costly undisciplined acts)

-5 TMac (sadly not physically able)

-6 JJ (saw him maybe twice and did f-all)

Other than Gawn, the rest of the mids get nothing.  Totally eclipsed by Walsh who completely dominated all night.

6. May - just an outstanding defensive effort and more proof that a good key defender will always beat a good key forward.

5.Spargo - I really liked his game and his commitment to the cause.

4. Smith - our best forward on the night 

3. Gawn - the best ruck on the ground.  One very costly miss, one miss that would have been a great goal but was never likely.

2. Sparrow - a very good game from Tom - showed better skill than some bigger names.

1. Lever - started like a house on fire. Was in the right spot most of the time.

Special mention - ANB - loved his last few weeks.

6 - May

5 - Max

4 - Lever

3 - Spargypants

2 - Tracc

1 - Joel Smith

Sparrow, McVee, Hunter, ANB, Riv, Clarry, JV tried their hearts out to no avail. Kozzie had flashes of brilliance but cancelled himself out in the end. What was Schache’s all about.

    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

    Clayton Oliver was integrated back into the main training group today for the first time in 2024 after completing a 2km time trial. FriendlyFellow, a new Demonland Trackwatcher hit Gosch's Paddock on a hot and windy morning to bring you his observations of the session.
