Posting Unsubstantiated Rumours on this Website is Strictly Forbidden

    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.

We’ll finish next year top 4 again and with any luck injury wise we’ll be a real chance again. Having no consistent forward structure is always going to be a big ask in September. We win everywhere else.  

I love following the Dee’s while we finish top 4 year after year, I’ll take this over the neeld era any day. Catch ya next year DL

May was massive. Sparrow in the last, very good. A wise man once told me never to email (but I’m going to apply to it posting in this case), when angry, upset or otherwise emotional, so I’m going to leave it at that. I’ll be back. 

💯 May and sparrow where massive in the last 10 minutes.

Just now, I think OF Demons said:

We were robbed, and we robbed ourselves with poor kicking. Too many Outs and a combined losing margin of 8 points across 2 finals games... we are a great side with bad luck this year.

What can you do?

Poor kicking isn't bad luck.

Letting blues waltz out every centre bounce was a disgrace.

Poor coaching with no subbing doesn't help.

Wasn't confident coming in and then was calm mid-way through the last quarter. Then we couldn't finish it. Almost predictable they would kick the last goal to win. Our leaders, MAy aside, couldn't show the way.

Four finals losses in a row. This year it was simply poor execution.

Our best were the unsung heroes. Spargo, Smith, Sparrow, etc

This Is why we’re not a big club and we’re not taken seriously and we don’t draw big crowds. 

We can’t be trusted. 

Bunch of chokers. 

Fancy handing a prelim to the blues on a freaking platter. 

 So 96,000 is not a big crowd?

Straight Sets Simon has wasted yet another year through poor list management and team selection.

Schache the sub and wasn’t even used, while we had ruck contests with no one going up and Grundy in the stands.

Gawn totally exposed their backline with his marking when he was forward, we could have had a lot more of that with Grundy in the team.

This is the least surprising result, lost at team selection yet again.

Yep, I have to agree

Wtf were they thinking?

That's the problem with AFL and most sports in general - the entire 24 round H&A season counts for nothing when you can't execute in big games. 7.11 (+7 total misses) and 9.17 just won't it. That's the dictionary definition of a choke. Twice.

We were never beating Geelong last year nor Brisbane this, but it still [censored] sucks not to even get a chance. 

The wins will be meaningless next year from March-August. Chokers tag well and truly on and we'll be a laughing stock over summer. Time to delete Twitter and stay away from footy talk as much as possible for six months I reckon. Last time I did that was 2017.

May was massive and probably has another hurrah or two left in him. But we're running out of time. He's nearly 32 and still our MVP.

In hindsight Petty going down injured can't be underestimated. TMac was beyond useless in both finals and Schache wasn't even trusted enough to go on the ground. 

[censored] [censored] [censored].

    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
