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.

From a long way out I thought this was our year. 

I was so confident we would be in the GF I booked a city hotel for this weekend.  To enjoy the festivities, see the city awash with red and blue and make up for missing the fanfare in 2021. 

I'm still in disbelief that we aren't at the G today. 

I truly believe we should be there and my confidence wasn't misplaced; there was no way to predict the impact of thuggery and our appalling goal kicking.

As it is now not a Coll vs Carl game I will watch it cosseted as it were at the home of Dees supporting friends.

Having to barrack for Daniher and Zorko is rather sickening but there is no other way.

Go Roy boys!!!!

I should be on my fifth coffee, third Red Bull and tenth cigarette by now, having not slept a wink last night.

This should be a GameDay thread.

Dane Zorko- all will be forgiven and forgotten (for making Harry cry) if you do two things: take Maynard down, and get your team on the podium.

I’LL GET YOUR FACE TATTOOED ON MY PERSON IF YOU CAN DO THIS!

Really could have been us playing today. An in form Melksham was a huge loss. Not playing Grundy for whatever reason didn't help. Tmac was a poor compromise and I won't talk about the incident here.

Pies are an average side that were very lucky to beat us and just scraped in against the Giants who played their third interstate final in a row. After a six day break. Hmmmm.

Like so many others my interest is to see pies get smashed and a certain player get a taste of his own irresponsible and very dangerous footy acts so as to stop them happening to others again. Because the afl won't stop them, someone else should.

We were not the best side this year. We finished 4th for a reason. KPF injuries the biggest factor no question about that. Bad luck but there you go.

Could still have one either of those finals but if you can't kick the ball between the big sticks and score more than the opposition, then you are not the better team. We do not deserve to be in today's final because our goal kicking was putrid.

Beautiful day. Off to the park with the kids and the dog for a while. Hosting a BBQ to watch the game. All set and ready to go.

Lions will win. 2 relatively straight forward finals (reminds me of us in 21). Forwards humming. Pies have not been in particularly good form for a couple of months. McStay out a big loss for them.

Lions by 35 points I reckon. I'll enjoy the looks of anguish on the pies supporters faces.

The only way I see Brisbane losing is if they do a Melbourne and sheet the bed on the big stage at the "G".

I’m actually worried that Andrew’s goes to Mihocek, and Cox has a field day on Gardner.  It would be my worst nightmare.  But Macrae is astute and will be working out how to exploit Brisbanes lack of a second fit tall defender.

Never been more uninterested in a GF before.

The thought of either Cox and Maynard or Daniher and Hipwood being premiership players just doesn’t sit well with me, sadly it’s only a matter of time. 

This year we’ve been constantly reminded that Nick Daicos is the best player in the game and Harris Andrews is the games best defender. 
 

A Brownlow medal count where 14 average touches gets you 3 votes and 42 touches and 2 goals gets you none.

The umpiring / goal review system at an all time low.

The tribunal system clearly broken. 

Two of my best mates, both Collingwood supporters (one at the game today) telling me telling me this week that we (the Dees) were the better team in both our finals and should of win them both does little to comfort me.

Throughout the year I have as many on here have invested so much time & money into watching our club, betting, SC and being on here only to be left so disappointed not only by our club but the game as a whole.

Having said all of that, [censored] you Maynard, Carn the Lions.

Any DL posters heading to the game today?

Can’t wait for the game and hoping the karma bus pays Maynard a visit, one way or another. I don’t hope he gets hurt, I just hope he has a stinker of a game and is one of the main reasons they lose.

Hopefully next year I’ll be cheering on the red and the blue rather than being a neutral in the crowd.

The media's orgasmic response to the filth in a granny is strange. One would think it was 57 years since their last and not a paltry 13.

Watch the filth fans boo Neale today. Like it was his fault.

Dirty club. Dishonest players. Filthy fans.

One can only hope they lose today.

A small degree of joy in that at least.

Watch the umps try and spoil it though.

    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
