  • 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?

Nah...I want them destroyed in the manner of Sydney in last year's GF plus some. Give them a belting that will damage them psychologically for seasons to come.

Exactly, like the 2003 Grand Final. That was one of my favourite non-Melbourne games. Collingwood thought they were the big thing, went into the GF favourites after beating the Lions in the soaking wet in the Qualifying Final. That first quarter was absolute gold. It definitely affected them for the next two years, although they probably exaggerated their lower ladder position for draft picks (Pendlebury and Thomas).

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.

 

Maybe not the Giants per se, but I'm thrilled for Hogan and Bedford to be playing finals and performing well.  I was super peeved when we let Bedford go without a fight, but I doubt he'd have been given the chance under Goodwin that he's had up there and he's absolutely killing it, so good on him.

Lynch and Aker were kicking them from everywhere! Great to see.

I'd pay money to witness a repeat of that this year!

GWS all the way, now that they play like a team and not entitled prats happy for yhem to salute, and bravo to their fans that made the trek to SA, they must be pretty happy.

But that said this season has an asterix, dodgy ARC, insipid MRO & tribunals, four umpire farce. Gill really stayed a year too long. So I don't care as long as it's not Pies or Carlton, but you can't say this year's finals were set up on merit.

If it is Carlton vs Collingwood I'm not watching it!! 

Neither. We normally have a bbq with friends and watch the grand final, but if it’s a Collingwood Carlton grand final I won’t even turn the tv on.

Unfortunately, Collingwood will be far too good for GWS. 

We’ll have to wait for the Grand Final and Chris Fagan’s Lions to bring peace on the AFL’s earth.

I don’t think they will be. They play a fast attacking contested footy that the Pies don’t like. Pies missing Adams as well, making them even more vulnerable in the contest. 
I am not saying GWS will definitely win, but they’re a strong chance IMO.

Me too, that Grand Final was bliss. Aker magic!

GWS are going to absolutely belt the Pies and most of their supporters don't even see it coming.

Can't wait to see their "oh [censored]" faces about half way through the second.

Commentary team sound a little rattled too  🤣

Desperately want a Lions v GWS grand final and wipe that smerk of disbelief off  Voss's face.

No  way Maynard goes after Mr Toby or any other player. They'd rip that dogs head off.

 Melbourne are still  considered soft in some aspects otherwise Maynard wouldnt have slaughtered Brayshaw. Why didnt Melbourne make his game hell?

MFC have to shutdown all this social work nonesense. Ben Brown spent most of the season hanging with children. Hes the highest paid social worker in Australia on 650k ?

Shutdown Alice Springs and all that feel good nonesense that goes with it.

We look soft. Its  just a fact so get over it. If we dont toughen up we'll go out in straight sets again.

 

 

 

Holy mackeral

    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

    Angus Brayshaw Forced into Retirement

    After 167 games including the drought breaking Premiership Angus Brayshaw has made the heart breaking decision to medically retire from football as a result of a series of serious head knocks over his nearly decade of footy. We wish Gus all the best and he'll always be a hero at Demonland. 😢
