  • 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.

I dunno, even if Brisbane got through it'd gonna be hard. Don't want to watch it and get let down again, the stress bank account has taken a hit lately.

Might go fishing and get drunk on grand final day. I usually love watching it no matter who is in it.

Totally soured this year.

Thanks Gil

Reading some of these comments... I am glad I have decided to ignore footy other than MFC games.

Wouldn't surprise me if tomorrow there are some weird things going around the Gabba.

Btw, I saw that they gave 15000 tickets to Carlton fans. How many did we get against WC back in 2018? I would be surprised if it was more than 5000.

Yeah you are

just every motorist trope everyone has heard before it’s boring and totally unecessary given what I said 

jog on Karen 

Would you mind proof reading before you post in future, not making a great deal of sense there... 

Too busy thinking about men in lycra perhaps.

Bedford’s been a bit overrated this year if you ask me. Kicked 12.17 for the year and missed a crucial goal early in the 3rd qtr tonight which would’ve given GWS some much needed confidence and ascendancy.

Massive blue. He only had to run straight at the goal and kick through the ball. Tried a too clever by half screw kick.

I will be attending the Grand Final as an AFL member and if Carlton beat Collingwood  then I’ll reluctantly take it.

I think you're speaking in riddles BBP.

If it ends up being a filth vs Carlton GF we all know where you'll be taking it!

The filth need a gps to help find them the airport, didn’t travel the last 5 rounds & McGuire complained about playing the lions @ marvel in rd 24! All other top 4 teams travelled twice, in a tight competition how can one team have an advantage???

The most infuriating thing about Collingwood making the Grand Final is that they’re not even that [censored] good.

Good enough to get there tho

We just weren’t (noting injuries and very poor kicking and cacking our dacks last 2 mins v Blues)

This really is the one that got away

GWS lost because of 2 bad mistakes in the third quarter, the turnover kick and then the player who didn't bodyline the ball. Both resulted in goals and gave Collingwood back the momentum

They also missed their first 4 shots at goal. 

Did Toby go up on the ball in those final minutes because he could have been the experienced one to wrestle it out

Yep, so peeved. Give us Melks and Petty back and we would have had it in the bag.

Don't know about that. Last night's game was seriously high quality. I felt at half time, given the Giant's aerial dominance that they would have the edge on us. They were very impressive.

Collingwood's chaotic style undid them in the third quarter. Giants could not slow the game down and reassert control which is all a bit sad really.

Very much hoping the Lions get it done for Chris Fagan.

That was Callum Brown. He was otherwise terrific and a few minutes later kicked a ripper goal, but that was a costly mistake that undid some of his good work.

Still treated as a minnow club

and we roll over and accept it (like getting sent to Kardinia Gulag every year since 2000)

If we take  away the crowds and close finishes i think the game is at sn all time low in standard. The amount of time players have to get rid of the ball is not as the game was intended to show of kicking and evasion skills.Again we have too many players around the ball and players are not tiring in the way anticipated at end of games for it to break open. I think thats with 23 including sub but more to do with game plans

what do other think please

Why is one team given a 6 day break in a 4 team competition?

Especially after the gws have flown interstate for three games in a row. 

Hard not to believe it's all about the filth.

    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
