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

Will Grundy attend? 
Will Clarry attend???
Is Gus ok??
 

It should be a night to celebrate a year but given a second straight sets exit in finals, there will be some tough talk in dispatches.  
Forward 50 connections.
Learnings. 
Goalkicking.

Hopefully we can celebrate the win by Trac or JV7.  

Mcvee breakout year.  

JVR arriving. 

Welcome to Andrew McQualter. 
Farewell Yze (and Stafford 🤔🤔). 

16 wins is not a failed year. Losing two finals was.

If he's in a reasonable place / state he should be attending and no reason why he wouldn't.

More circus material for the media nuffies if he doesn't imv

I am hopeful Clayton Oliver will attend. Although I am sure he will look to avoid the media jackals.

We as Melbourne supporters need to show him plenty of love. For anybody attending, and who gets a chance to do so, please let Clayton Oliver know that we love him and hope he stays a Demon for his entire football career!

WE LOVE YOU CLARRIE!!! GO DEMONS!!! 🔴🔵👹

Can you explain your comment I amNot in sync with what you are intimating. 

Is it that 9 of our players went missing each game ? 

Ok so in response to Adonski's clever (in jest) take that 12 players might be all that's left at the B&F ....

Some may not get the veiled reference if not a Seinfeld fan or haven't watched this particular episode.

If you are you're already aware of George's character and that he's a habitual cotastrophizer and panic merchant/drama king, this GIF a great example of that.

On one hand some D'landers do call "fire" when there is just some smouldering (nothing to see here) smoke in a basket.  That's one aspect.  I'm also guilty of that on occasions!

There's also some truth in what Adonski jokingly exaggerated in the sense that so many players (end of season this time around) are either looking to exit, have already retired or may be doing so due to potential career ending injuries. Probably also some Clarry no show 'spin off' take in there as well.

A bit of a scramble for the exit (overnight list 'Shrinkage') with a D'land (Costanza style) panicy twist added in for good measure.

It was also a great excuse to just post that GIF, an all time classic Seinfeld moment imv.  George taking no prisoners in pursuit of his own self preservation.

As you can see, my SOH is pretty warped.  And some of it is (sometimes) a reflection of my own flaws that i see when watching certain sitcom characters & episodes.

    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.

    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
