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.


2023 Best and Fairest

For the people in the room they did skip the Collingwood final or go back to it? 

Gee Clint got a bit salty with some people at the end when they came back from that extra long break.

Maybe he wanted to get home early as he probably has to get up for weekend today.

Did anyone go up to Grundy & have a chat?

I watched the live stream. Which was mainly pretty good.

As expected, Christian Petracca wins his 2nd Keith "Bluey" Truscott Memorial Trophy. Thought it would be a lot closer with Jack Viney though.

Heard the word "Culture" a dozen or more times which is good. I am assuming that some of that is a subtle reminder to Clayton Oliver. But I am sure he got lots of love and well wishes this evening. We all love and support Clarrie and obviously want him to do well.

Steven May, absolutely brilliant speech! He said exactly what we were all thinking! We are better than [censored] Collingwood! Let's beat them next year!

Hopefully Clarrie and the rest of team is inspired by the classic Ron Barassi quote repeated by Simon Goodwin which is "if it is to be, it is up to me!" Let's win that Premiership on the MCG next year Demons!

Looks like he wasn't there according to earlier comments. I didn't watch it.

Why a big loss? I'm sure we'll have a very competent and capable sports medicine doctor joins the ranks next season.

Goody said she’s the best doctor he’s ever worked with.

easy to critique Binman. how did you go with your predictions?

I wasn't having a shot at you dd.

And many wouldn't have picked him to finish top 10 - chronically under rated player. Well, not by the coaches and players, just fans.

How did I go with my predictions? 

Picked the top 10 in order.

Edit: picking the top 10 in order was meant to be a joke.

That’s because you genuinely don’t know what role he’s being asked to play every week. 
Half this site thinks ANB is a liability but he came 6th. Go figure. 

The one set of awards you can’t complain about is the B&F. Our coaches give very specific votes for very nuanced things that we have no idea about. 

Thanks

 How does the misspelling of a player’s name get through?!?! Where’s the proofreader? Inexcusable!

I congratulated him afterwards on his speech, he replied “I only said what we were all thinking, I f%^#ing  hate Collingwood”.  Love him! 

Watch the media have a ball with this. Well, who gives a CENSORED.

It's TRUE! 

A great night, the players must have felt the love in the room. Well done MFC and the supporters there.

Nibla 6th.

🥳 so happy that despite the endless [censored]-canning he cops on here, the people whose assessment  matters the most gave him the credit he deserves. Onya Nibs!

And just quietly… HOW GOOD IS KNUCKLES MCVEE?! The kid’s a ️ 

Loved seeing an event where some of the “lesser lights” got to shine.

Spaz a deserving winner of the True Player award (again). 👏

if Flower only won one i reckon the format might need to change the format. Is N Jones 3 times a better player?

Ah Nooooooo !

Has Goody done his speech yet?

He usually sounds pretty refreshed at these nights.

Surely Goody is going to have a tonne of 'learnings' to impart to the gathered masses?

But is someone really the best player for the season when they miss almost half the year? Where should the line be drawn? Get 60 possessions and kick 10 in round 1 then miss the rest of the season with injury? Maybe a team's best player on paper, but not the best player for the team over that season I'd suggest.

That said, regarding the Flower winning only 1 matter I'd agree there's scope maybe to tweak the scoring system. 

Somewhere on Grevile Street.

Despite coming second in the BnF surely this was Viney's best ever year for us.

Some players do well when the team lifts.

Some players lift the team when the team's not doing well.

Jack kept us in games when we were struggling.

    TRAINING: Saturday 2nd March 2024

    On the eve of the 2024 Season I ventured down to Gosch's Paddock for one of the final preseason training session before we head up to Sydney to take on the Swans. Here are my observations from the training session. The session was light and despite it being a Saturday was akin to a Monday/Tuesday session following a regular season weekend match as we played on Wednesday night and the boys had a couple of days off after the Practice Match prior to the season proper. Main Squad: May,

    ROUND ZERO by Whispering Jack

    The Coodabeen Champions have called it a day after more than forty years on various radio stations across Melbourne. When the lads chose the theme from the spaghetti western "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" as their signature tune, the game was uncomplicated with little time for scientific strategy. Summertime was for easy living and games of cricket, footy teams assembled in February, played practice matches in March and the season opened in mid-April. In their time, the Coodabeens saw changes

    I headed down to Gosch’s Paddock this morning for the Captain’s Run in the lead up to tomorrow night’s practice match against the Blues.  The squad that took the field was indicative of the lineup for that match at Ikon Park.  Likely Selections based on the groupings of players at the Captain's Run today at Gosch's Paddock. Main Group: Gawn, Viney, May, JVR, Lever, Petracca, McVee, Windsor, Billings, Langdon, Bowey, Schache, Rivers, ANB, Fritsch, Sparrow, Chandler, Kozzy,

    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
