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.

Aimee Mackin is playing her 2nd ever game of AFL. Next year she will be our best player

 

I thought I was optimistic saying 2 years! 

But I suspect it will only be Hore and Hanks in competition.

This team is something special!

How they adapt to each oppositions strengths is just exceptional. Cats were super tough at the footy early and we just ramped it up around the footy and took away their strength whilst allowing the rest of our game to shine. Unbelievable! So rapt for them ❤️💙❤️💙

Very impressive again. Cats brought the heat early but we absorbed it, steadied and put them to the sword.

We’re a very well-oiled machine and a joy to watch. Ball movement and connection first rate.

Purcell, Heath, Mithen and West all cracked in. Pearce good in the ruck.

Paxy very good. She doesn’t seem to be aging at all. Zanker physical and a handful for the cats defence

Hore with the votes. Outstanding again.

Aimee Mackin with flashes of brilliance. Reckon she’ll be better than her sister. We’ve hit the jackpot with those 2

14 in a row. Fantastic consistency. Smashing all comers so far this season.

This team just don’t look like losing. What a pleasure it is to watch them play

Go Dees

Methodical.

Its so commanding - you get annoyed when players aren’t perfect. The connection they have with each other on the counter is pure gold and glory. 

The men’s team can learn something from this group when it comes to decision making and using hands and not panicking around the 50.

Decent crowd on the camera side and that Aimee Mackin move off the back flank toward centre wing was absolute dynamite.

How great to watch are these women!?!? Brilliant. Their end to end handball chains for goals are the standout. And the last quarters - wow.

But who was that commentator? Lots of ex-footballers and commentators show bias, but she was grumpy, ungracious and unable to even commentate about the Dees. She often just went silent when someone gave us a compliment.

On top of the ladder with a % of 306.9 after 5 games. Not too shabby at all. 
 

Can anyone do the math on that last quarters stat for this year? Must be something like 140 points for / 5 points against. 
 

Can’t wait to watch the game later!

Best win of the year. Geelong had a real go but just lack polish. 49 points against a side pushing top 4 is great. Imagine if we had Harris in rhe fwd line. Even bigger test next week. Hore, Paxman, Zanker and Pearce our best. Hanks was great as well. Love it when Goldie gets the ball as it is real heart in mouth stuff that.

No team has kicked a goal against Dees in 4th quarter this season! 🤯

...or the 9 games before that!

If my quick maths is correct, 4th quarters are 125 points for and 4 points against, the last 3 rounds the opposition in fact hasn't scored a point in the 4th. Incredible.

I thought the Hawks got fumbly last week because they're at that standard.

But tonight I realised it happens because that's what this Melbourne team makes the opposition. Real pressure becomes implied pressure, and, the real pressure still continues, unabated.

Crows and Suns game on Sunday evening will be a worth a watch. haven't seen the Crows play yet but the commentators reckon they're our nearest rival. Suns are decent so will hopefully test them. North and Lions aren't as good as us based on their game last week.

    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
