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

good to see brown was doing good off field.

A remarkable human being and one of the best people you could ever hope to have at your club. He brings so much to our club and we should be incredibly proud that he plays for us.

Even if he doesn’t play another game, his contribution next year will be immeasurable. If every young player at our club models themselves on Ben, they’ll be better for it.

I think we underestimate how hard being a key forward is at that age and doing it basically alone for so many games because everyone else is falling over injured. And then being thrown in the ruck as well. 

McVee had a phenomenal year, but he was also incredibly well supported by stars like May and Lever. 
Roo was often a lone hand and did remarkably well under very difficult circumstances. 
 

Both are very worthy winners. 

I Don't underestimate the fwd role at all nor what JvR did.  Happy for the kid but that he got himself suspended when we needed him most devalues his year somewhat.

That McVee is ahead of other defenders says he more than held his own without depending on May, Lever etc

There's a guy in my town (Warragul) l think he works in Woolies, has a hot Cooper S mini with BBB demon number plates.

His suspension was very disappointing. Ironic too given what Maynard did and got off *don’t mention the war*
 

He plays on the edge and he will learn from it. 
I rather that than someone lacking hardness.

Highlights of our last 5 rounds is brutal for what could have been.

Petty and Melksham winning us games, then didn't feature.

Pain.

Literally every game is like “this player was great up forward”… and then they got injured 😭

    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
