  • 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.

Unfortunately I won't see the game - I'm still blinded by the sunset at Frankston on Friday night. 

That was shocking on TV to try and watch. Not a good time to schedule a game. And top it off the camera crew must have been the work experience kids that day, so often they were no where near where the ball was when filming the game.  it was off to the right or left of the frame out of sight so often.

Just read hamstring for Tay Tay on one of those news sites. Picked up at training this week - anyone know anything - do we need to freak out

 

She was fine at training on Tuesday till right at the end when she lay on the ground and one of the trainers started working on her leg, giving it a bit of a stretch and test.  Hopefully it's not too bad...... 🤞

Losing Tayla is bad news, hopefully it will be just the one week, we definitely want her back for the next game against Adelaide.

One concern I have for the Geelong game is that it is our third short week (six day break) in a row.  The men often say two short weeks is a problem.  It's not a question of fitness and running out of steam, but compounded short recovery time takes the edge off - you aren't as sharp, reflexes a bit slower, etc.

Geelong only have 5 days between games, so hopefully it is not a huge issue.

Game day! Looking forward to this one. Great way to kick off the long weekend.

The boys struggle in Mordor but I back the girls to get it done this evening. Geelong have improved as their results show but we’re a step up in class for them. They’ll challenge early but our quality will tell in the finish.

dees by 25 points.

As I understand it history has tended to show, at least with the men, that a single five day break is not usually a problem, but consecutive six day breaks can be.  Hopefully, though, all will be well.......

Im very pleased for you, Viper. You're in for a treat, even if the result doesn't go our way (wash my mouth out!) Do some barracking for me, then, you and the offspring, while I'm laid up here on the other side of the planet.

Why would you say even if the result doesn't go our way?  The treat  is our magnificent form and if we get beaten the treat most likely won't be a treat!!

Cos I like washing my mouth out 😄

Part of the same character trait that kept me being a Dees supporter for those 57 years!

Betting $1.14 to $5.50!

Crikey! Really? (not that I should be letting this tawdry aspect of modern sport into my appreciation of the still relatively pure experience of women's football and our glorious team in it...)

    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

    Clayton Oliver was integrated back into the main training group today for the first time in 2024 after completing a 2km time trial.
