Discussion on recent allegations about the use of illicit drugs in football is forbidden
  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    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 issue of illicit drugs in footy, 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.

They also interviewed that sex pest DeGoey, who for some reason decided to awkwardly hug her and invade her space. Others lose their jobs for similar behavior. Was bizarre and no one bats an eyelid because it’s Collingwood. I hate what this country is becoming.

Yep, the idolization of sex offenders, thugs and cheats under the guise of being good blokes who can kick a footy is nauseating. 
 

If you hate what this country (and world) is becoming,  spare a thought for us women.

The last few weeks I’ve realised I like Aussie Rules the game, can’t stand the AFL as an industry, but love the Demons. The manufacturing of storyline’s and outcomes is so obvious.

Watching the AFLW is a revelation. It feels fun and real.

Hate to say it, but i don't think we beat either team last night (pies beat us already in a QF as we know). We don't have the corridor game to win it. Badly need some new thinking in this regard. any chance we could poach Leppitsch?

Sorry @BDA  to disagree.  We could have beaten either team last night. I wouldn’t be afraid of playing either.  We have to ability to beat anyone and win it. Put us against anyone and we’re a big chance.  
 

Just for the record.  Pies and Blues didn’t beat us.  Dees lost it. Both times. What hurts is we only have ourselves to blame in both games.  So so so so (etc ) chances to win both games.  (And ps. we were minus Gus,Petty,Melksham)

I thought the Ch 7 commentary was deplorable.  I have accepted that BTs brain is always at another game but the others commentated not on what they saw but who they saw

Daicos - what a champ; (had just slipped and fallen over)

Sidebottom - ever reliable (coughed up 2 goals)

I noticed that too. Went the hug and the kiss. Was real creepy and weird. Maybe a little history there, who knows. She looked uncomfortable

Good post.

We simply couldn't win because of our fwd line being depleted. Also had Gus unfairly removed from the whole game.

We bombed it against the pies without a strong Hogan type player who could make a contest. 

If a tired gws side that had a six day break after three interstate games had another tall in their fwd line and not rely just on Hogan they would be in a Gf now.

Pies are bog ordinary and  should be smashed by the lions if the Mcg hoodoo isn't a factor.

Lions fwd line should overwhelm  the pies defenders .

As for Carlton, we were another fwd down in a young Jvr suspended and blew a lot of chances in a very poorly umpired game with 50m penalties handed out like snickers bars and a lot of frees just simply not paid.

We also made some poor selection choices with Laurie in the QF and not Grundy in the other. 

A sad ending with injuries, the Maynard incident and some really poor skills saw us removed in straight sets in a series where a flag was very much there for the taking.

I think his season has been slightly over hyped.

12.17 for the season. If he did that at Melbourne he’d be lynched by all and sundry.

Agree, people have been suckers for the highlight reel and quick to boot our list management.

Like the rest of you I’ve woken to a lovely Melbourne Spring day, revoltingly ruined by the infiltration of Collingwood propaganda. Listening to 774 and Matt Preston is about to turn away 60% of his audience, by assuming we are all interested in listening to his nauseating sycophantic slobbering on about Collingwood. 
Its just the arrogance that pizzes me off, this would happen with no other team, except perhaps Carlton 🤮🤮🤮

If Collingwood were playing the Taliban in the Grand Final next week I would be wholeheartedly supporting the Taliban.

If Carlton wins tonight it will be like choosing a favourite from Al Qaeda and Islamic State.

When Hogan kicked that goal to get the Giants within 1 a Richmond friend asked how Melbourne must feel seeing that.

If anyone should be feeling bad about Jesse playing this kind of footy it's Freo. They couldn't make it work in the perfect hometown environment and they are crying out for a forward as well right now.

    ICEBREAKER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons have broken the ice for season 2024 with a pulsating come-from-behind victory over Port Melbourne in which it took the lead for the first time at the halfway mark of the final quarter. The game played in mild Autumn conditions in neutral territory at Kinetic Park, Frankston, never reached great heights in standard but it proved gripping in character at the end at the Casey Demons overcame the Borough to win by 15 points after trailing badly early in the second half.  P

    MAULED by Whispering Jack

    The writing was on the wall from the very first bounce of the football. The big men went up, Max Gawn more often than not, decisively won the ruck hit out and invariably a Brisbane Lions onballer either won the battle on the ground or halved the contest and they went at it repeatedly until they finally won out. Melbourne managed the first goal from Alex Neal-Bullen but after that the visitors shut out every area of Demon presence around the ground except in the ruck duels. It was a mauling.
