  • 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've been waiting for us to play Geelong in Geelong since Geelong came into the competetion.  Casey may as well be on the other side of the planet from here. I'll be there with my three girls, hoping for another impressive display.  

Hey VC, your daughters are welcome to come to us pregame to grab a flag or other prop to wave during the match. They don’t have to sit with us, as long as anything borrowed is returned postgame. You just need to approach any one of us in the first couple of rows of the cheer squad pregame. 👍🏽❤️💙🙂

Thanks for that.  Rapt that Gabby Colvin gets a run.

At the risk of pushing the friendship, do you know what the story is with young Georgia Campbell  ? Injured, managed, dropped  ? 

Georgia’s omission is not form-related, our guess is Mick is going smaller vs Geelong.

Also really happy for Gabby.

PS: friendship not even slightly nudged let alone pushed. 😁

Campbell stuff, she's been great. But I can understand Colvin ahead of her as a senior member of the team.

I would stick with Campbell at the moment. Form has been good and a big reason Pearce has been playing good footy...

Yes, this is true. Haven’t even played them in a practice match. And it’s not liked they’ve just joined the comp, they joined in 2019.

edit: this is the closest we’ve been to playing them…

Another AFL conspiracy on that tin. 

Why do the cats players have two footys in play? Unfair advantage for sure.

Is their a Melbourne Milo?

Has a better ring to it.

We like borrowing your flags etc for the Perth based games, really good. The query I have, is when are they going to get rid of the nets behind the goals during games, really makes us not want to sit with the cheer squad.  Maybe the cheer squad to locate to the pocket as a group when in Perth.  This years game is at mineral resources park for the first time, so not sure of the best sitting possies.  Fremantle oval sucks.

Love the DeeBrief AFLW, best in-depth look at AFLW Dees out there!

They mentioned that the Dees Army are looking for kids for the Guard of Honour on Thursday night, as an FYI for anyone heading down with kids who'd like to take part.

Thank for the inside word. Glad for Colvin - she was our best on in the S6 GF and I really hope she can recapture that form. It can be a tough injury to come back from. As for the outs, I've got a feeling that the 3-4 next cabs off the rank outside the starting line-up are going to prove crucial.

The nets at most grounds are only up during warmups for goal-kicking practice. But sometimes at the smaller grounds they’re left up for the match, and despite a much lower chance of being hit by a ball, we don’t like having to watch the game through them. As for moving to a pocket or a wing, at away games we don’t get to choose where we sit as a cheer squad.

When I find out the relevant info re Mineral Resources Park I’ll post it here on DL.

Have never seen the Demons play better, more fluid football and we are still as tough as around the ball.  No-one can stop Harris, Bannan, Hore and Zanker.

Why the season is not at least 14 games long is a disgrace. They hurried 18 teams in too quickly so there are too many one sided matches and 7 teams you dont even play each year!

For anyone who has children who’d like to participate in the Guard of Honour-

Where: GMHBA Stadium, meet at Gate 10 (Ambulance Race) – there will be a Melbourne staff member there.

When: Meet at 5:35pm
Head out onto the ground at 5:50pm, with the team running out onto the ground at 6:04pm.  

Guard of Honour will conclude at approx. 6:15pm, with the participants returned to the Gate 10 meeting spot.

Outfit: As much red and blue as possible!

 

Also, the Demon Army will be sitting in Bay A28 in the Charles Brownlow Stand.

    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
