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.

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 

Will you feel the same if this group only deliver the 21 flag?

Honestly we need to expect better from this group, straight set exits don't cut it.

Disgraceful waste of a season. Pickett’s poor discipline has cost us big time - what a joke he gets 800k per year. I never want to see TMac play in the senior side ever again. Get a new forward line coach ASAP. We are mentally soft and deserve to be called chokers. 

Its definitely no where near 800k for Kozzy.

You could just see what was going to happen that whole last quarter, chance after chance, miss after miss.

Skills have digressed exponentially.

Key Forward our No.1 target in the off season.

Not going to point any fingers.

Need a coaching panel clearout.

Nothing went our way this year after Petty's injury.

The Dees are the Greg Norman of football , chokers .  We need to get rid of some players BB ,T.Mac, Harmes , Jordon ,Schache , Grundy the most expensive back up ruckman in afl history and Goody , the reserves coach ,Richardson,Pert that's for starters .I would include the fitness coach . This club makes me sick.

Don't forget the boot studder.

In hindsight Petty going down injured can't be underestimated.

Not to mention Melksham (the way he was playing) plus Brayshaw - compare Bayshaw's output to Jordan's. Then throw in the suspension to JVR.

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. 

I just had a rant, feel better getting it off my chest. I regret nothing :D.

Agree. Chuck in Hibberd or Grundy, schace or anyone in place of tmac in the last 25 mins and they would've offered something which is not than nothing we go from tmac

Did Tmac have a touch in the last? He was beyond disgusting tonight.

We said the same last year, bad luck... bad luck with I juries...

I am.afraid this can scar psychologically the group.

Lots of mental work to do in the offseason.

They play like they're already scarred.

Just put it in the context that while he had a poor finals series, Jack Viney carried us for a large portion of the season.

Gawn was best on field last week and played his heart out tonight.

There were a heap more reasons we lost tonight before you point the finger at the two hardest players in our club.

Pull your head in.

Vineys kick resulted in the winning goal for Carlton. Mind you he had time and space to kick better.

I’m bullish on next year actually 

I’m not at all unless Straight Sets Simon can get out of his own way and manage the list properly.

Also as has been said many times before a total refocus on skills needs to happen.

Too many slopppy players (Petracca and Hunter), poor kicking and just not doing the fundamentals well.

Not having any talk about us being overrated.. we are the best side in it, should have won last week.

This will be the flag we gave away.. mark my words, our biggest chance blown!

We are not the best side in it 

We have lost 4 Home Finals….

    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
