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.

Carlscum won't make finals next year.

Top 4 next season I would say. Voss has actually shown himself to be a better coach than most gave him credit for (me included). The Carlton list is the right age/experience/quality profile to make the next step.

It's like the square root of a million. No-one will ever know.

Seen this a couple of times lately, you know it's a thousand right?

A 3 is easily converted into an 8 😊

That's a pretty long wait for a team that just made a prelim. Unless you're planning on a few in-between, which is unwise cos I think we all know the Dees have got the next three sewn up.... 🥴

But bad luck No. 31, you guys gave it a good shake for your first finals series in a decade. Lots to look forward to.

2028 for the Blues Quintuple ... 5-peat Flag 😝 😁

The Blues window is definitely open now, just need to keep working to improve and evolve, but all the right ingredients are there which hasn't been the case for a long time. I am pretty happy how the season panned out after the horror 6 losses in a row. 

I am still bullish on the Dees as well, just need to look at the foward line set up and perhaps adjust some tactical things. Tinkering rather than wholesale refurbishment that some understandably dejected souls here think.

Would be happy to split some silverware with the Dees up to 2028 😊

Those couple of times were both from me and it's a Simpsons joke. 

So long as Math is being butchered for the sake of comedy then carry on. I won't torque of it again..

If any MCC PEEPS have tix to the big dance and don’t want to go let me know. Mrs Super is a long long time Pies person and I want her to go (despite her protestations she wants to stay home with her Demon boys ) - her fam all pies and I have to say generally have a brain and are reasonable. 

Sorry , can't help. Do have tickets to academy awards, Wimbledon men's final, Skylab, birdcage on cup day. Let me know if she's at all interested . Will shout her a frock as well.

These sort of comments are uninformed. Look at Essendon after 2000. Look at Geelong and Fremantle this year. There’s absolutely no guarantees in this game.

    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
