Discussion on recent allegations about the use of illicit drugs in football is forbidden
  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    Posting unsubstantiated rumours on this website is strictly forbidden.

    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 issue of illicit drugs in footy, 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

Looks like all the kefuffle this week has messed MFC communications up completely No B&F details coming through and Casey B&F totally ignored, not good enough MFC not by a long shot.!!!

What details to you want?

They have been on the website for weeks. Unless you are expecting a live coverage as per recent seasons. 
Not sure we didn't have to register our details for a zoom coverage.

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.

Thanks a lot for your trouble much appreciated. Even mentioning the characters didn't mean much at all.

If I watched more than ONE episode of Seinfeld for 5 minutes that's about how much I have watched and of about a dozen American " comedies" in my 75 years. Others for eg. are Fraser Don't Tell Your Mother, another  with an actor who was named Earle etc.

A friend made me watch the LAST episode of Seinfeld about 25/30 years ago and it was a waste of time really.

Even though I have had Foxtel for 15 years I have never watched repeats of the American comedies. 

I did watch "The Nanny" and liked that 

I was into British comedies ie Fawlty Towers, Are You Being Served and Yes Minister with IMO far superior if vastly different comedy lines and topics. Much the same with Crime Shows also.  

I thought there must have been a joke I didn't get or I would have taken umbrage with him.

Thanks again and Go Dees.

Thanks 58er I was hoping for something similar to last couple of years where we could click and watch. Disappointing end to the year.!!

I think DeeZone is mainly referring to the fact that nothing was said about the Casey B&F prior to it happening last night.

I'm going tonight and have been to many in the past.
To save me calling the club - I don't get a ticket from memory - just show up and I'm on the list?

Yep. You’ll be on the list if you’ve paid the money for your seat.

Make sure you post updates BEFORE you get hammered. Oh wait, that’s advice to myself, not you. 😂

 

Not going tonight, Kat. Gonna watch the livestream from a pub in Richmond while celebrating another Dees diehard’s birthday with a roomful of Dees Diehards.

Enjoy the night!!!

Not that I have a problem or nuthin, but can you bet on the BnF?

Not that I know of but they do have a 'raffle' tonight where you tip the top 10 in order.
All winning entries (there's usually quite a few), go in the draw for about 6 prizes.
$10 an entry from memory, so if you know anyone going tonight give them a call with your list and sling them a tenner at some stage.

Because this is voted by the Coaches JV will get his due volume as a team man and following coaches instructions.

    MAULED by Whispering Jack

    The writing was on the wall from the very first bounce of the football. The big men went up, Max Gawn more often than not, decisively won the ruck hit out and invariably a Brisbane Lions onballer either won the battle on the ground or halved the contest and they went at it repeatedly until they finally won out. Melbourne managed the first goal from Alex Neal-Bullen but after that the visitors shut out every area of Demon presence around the ground except in the ruck duels. It was a mauling.

    DEMONLAND: Good evening, Demon fans and welcome to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast … It’s been a beautiful last day of September and how sweet it is to bring you our coverage of all things that matter about the great Demon resurgence which we’ve seen over the past six or seven months. How our team overcame a turbulent off season and a disappointing start to 2024 on a humid night in Sydney, turned our detractors into believers and then ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    TRAINING: Sunday 7th April 2024

    Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin ventured down in the rain to Gosch's Paddock for the Demon Family Series April School Holiday Open Training session. Not such a good morning, weather wise. As I arrived, it starting raining, settled into watching some Victory players have a kick around. The MFC squad come out as the rain abated, they had wide smiles as the walked down the roped corridor. Plenty of joy from the supporters towards them, kids everywhere, maybe about 500 to a 1000 of us.
