  • 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.


Are we all on the Giants bandwagon?

Can't help but be super impressed with the way they go about it. Putting Port to the sword and they genuinely look like a premiership contender in my opinion. 

They should absolutely dare to dream because they play a brand that is well equipped on the big stage.

I mean watching Jesse Hogan in itself makes me depressed but I'm bloody happy for him and hope he gets success.

Toby Green, Josh Kelly and Lachie Whitfield are genuine stars of the competition 

They're my go to team for the finals.

We coud have the return of the prodigal son 😅

100% i am. I feel like if they win, i won’t be as sad. I hate the other 3 clubs left in it all equally and would love for them to lose so yes.

Their big test is next week. Playing in front of 90K Collingwood fans is going to be a true test of resolve. Win that and I think they’ll knock of the Lions.

A GWS vs Lions final would be great for the game but secretly the AFL would be scathing given the role they played in trying to get Collingwood vs Carlton final.

100%

Just dreaming, but if we'd had Hogan and Bedford in our side last night, we win.

Apart from many other impressive aspects of their game, they seem to have put a huge amount of work into getting rid of the pill to advantage when tackled.

Loving their work. Love that they're tearing the 'never tear us apart' Port apart and that they perform so well with eff all supporters. Now that we're out of it, I hope they go all the way.

Cheering for the Orange franchise?

not in a million years

you want to encourage Gill and his cronies? 5 thousand fans at games. 

if your cheering purely based on not wanting someone else to win well that’s how Donald Trump got in power

Ha. No-one has mentioned that GWS beating Port, puts us at 6th, instead of 5th and improves our draft hand by one spot. That's enough to barack for the Giants (and my daughter likes their song)

 

Did we clear up whether draft order is determined by end of H&A position?

Definitely want them to lose the least out of Brisbane, Pies and Carlton.

Nothing would give me greater satisfaction than GWS rolling Collingwood in front of 90,000 stunned mullets, ruing another wasted home and away season for the Pies.

I thought we lost to a BOG ordinary team in Alice Springs at the time but it couldn’t be any further from the truth.

Includes finals.
eg Last year we had pick 15 (Jefferson) yet finished 2nd. 

EDIT: MY bad, pick #15 was part of the trade for jackson, but I know I'm right on this issue

I’m %100 on board.

I used to despise the expansion clubs, especially GWS, but now feel that they and their fans have served their time and deserve some success.

Wrapped for Jesse and Bedford.

    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
