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

Hunter was high in the voting then really dropped off. Bowey. Langdon. Salem. Spargo. All played majority of games so assume they were 11-15. Never know where they had Grundy.  

Very interesting. Thanks. you might be on the money

Dumb comments to make, but he was obviously pretty [censored] and had the red wine lips going!

Honestly, if the Pies and their supporters get triggered by this it actually shows how insecure they are.

You won, who gives a toss.

… except not dumb at all. Spoken from the heart. What more do you want?!

Just my view, which I'm entitled to as is Steven May.

Coulda, shoulda never won anything. Words mean nothing, got to go get the job done next year.

Tbf May is one of the only ones that can genuienly say he played his best in both finals.

Agreed. After 2 Straight Sets exits.

… unless they’re spoken from the heart, in which case they mean something. And in this case… a lot.

Of course you’re entitled to your opinion, I just think it’s a little childish to call his comments “dumb” as you did, without expanding on why you’d label them “dumb.”

Remember this video? ⬆️ 

In terms of us and Collingwood, we’re Dylan Shiel and Collingwood is Luke Parker. Is that what we want??? Because that’s what it’s starting to sound like.

Well to clarify, the reason I think they're dumb is that you can't say we are better than them when the outcome proves otherwise. We definitely could be better than them, but we weren't this season and they are holding the cup.

I love May's passion and also love him as a player.

And just on passion, I am as passionate a supporter as anyone and I am loud and get behind the players every game. Our club has too many mild mannered supporters and I agree with this.

It sounds great but need to keep this in house, as will cop the bs from them continuously if we lose 

Why keep it in house? May didn’t make any excuses, he was upfront and stated it [censored] hurt watching those [censored] win the flag. As for copping bs, there are a lot of Bali trips and surfing  between now and Round 1.

I agree with Maysie. We were better than Collingwood.

Steven Bradbury won an Olympic gold medal. Was he better than his competitors? Even he agrees he wasn’t. He had the luck of his competitors falling down around him, just like Collingwood had luck on their side and a rather large helping hand from the AFL. Therefore, winning the premiership doesn’t necessarily mean they were the best team, just as Steven Bradbury wasn’t the best speed skater.

Incidentally, I questioned your use of the word “dumb” when describing Maysie’s comments. You’ve answered. I don’t agree with your answer (for the reason outlined above). That’s it.

What I didn’t question was your level of passion for our team nor you getting behind our players. I took both as a given. 👍🏽❤️💙

Collingwood were Consistently the best team all year. Yep they won heaps of close games, and we all hated it. But they did it. It has nothing to do with Stephen Bradbury luck. 
We on the other hand, were exceedingly wasteful up forward all year and against Carlton in the Final, we choked it. 
So I would have preferred Maysie to say nothing on that front, but it’s done now.

Agree to disagree on that one.

 I’m fine with a player expressing his angst like this. Where’s the harm in it? If you say the harm is that it’ll spur Collingwood on, my response to that is who gives a F. If our success hinges on not saying anything provocative then we’re really not going to get far.

If we had lost a Preliminary Final to The Filth by 1 point at the 35 minute mark, then i have no problem with any comment. 
But that is not what happened, we were beaten twice on our own turf. 
It’s head down [censored] up time to work hard and get better.
We are not the best list in the game

how is the form of Mr Ed since he made his Duck remark about The Filth?

Would have been better for all if that hadn’t been said

Oh yes, Mr Ed is such a sensitive, new age guy, that he hasn't recovered from the angry response his comments elicited from Collingwood players and supporters... NOT! I fully expected that there would be some reference to the cutting of hair!

Fact is, several umpires chose to ignore a physical attack that was outside the rules and bordered on reportable (Maynard).

Kate Roffey called on dees fans to get louder and MORE obnoxious 'like Collngwood fans'.

To be honest, i'm not convinced we need more obnoxiousness at the footy, but i get  what she was saying.

Maysie was merely doing what the prez asked!

You’re actually attributing that comment Langers made to a form drop? That’s a ridiculous notion. Especially since the change in his form seemed to stem from the serious rib injury he sustained vs North.

Besides, it’s not like these are terribly inflammatory comments. Geez, a team’s a bit precious to take offence at such weak barbs, especially to the point of meting out on-field punishment, all the while leaving their fans’ collective knickers in a knot.

Anyways, the poster to whom I replied said Maysie’s comment about us being the better team was “dumb” - he didn’t say Maysie was dumb to have said it aloud. I agree with Maysie that we were the better team and since I know I’m not dumb, it’s safe to say nor is Maysie.

As for Bradbury, he was genuinely good enough to make the final. Luck saw him win the final. Imo, not totally dissimilar to Collingwood’s experience.

To say the team that wins the premiership is the best team because they won the premiership is nonsense. For example, had that botched advantage call not happened and Brisbane goaled thereby winning the premiership, would you still be saying Collingwood were the best team in it? Or would you deem Brisbane the best?

The Filth were a far better side than Brisvegas over the Season of ‘24. Vegas were average away from The Gabba. 
Smartarse comments get remembered, it’s not a huge big deal, but I would prefer to say nothing. 
We have been beaten in Straight Sets twice, best to shut up and get better

    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
