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.

I can highly recommend the "Ignore" option WCW. I knew it existed, but only just found it yesterday. Only one person needed actioning, but it has made visiting Demonland so much less frustrating. 

Yes but sometimes I like what the poster has to say, it’s his aggressive nature I dislike. Besides, you still see posts from your ignored poster when somebody quotes them.

Agree, but the 10% of worthwhile content is not worth the pain of the rest IMO.

You may have seen my similar post re him a few days ago. There is enough sh*t happening in this world without voluntarily reading it on a fan forum.

I don't understand this round zero thing. When do we get our extra bye?

According to the article on AFL site the 8 teams that play in the ‘Opening’ round will have a bye at some point between rounds 2-6.

Are they really calling it ‘round zero’ to not offend Carlton and Richmond fans, who always play Round One? The AFL has jumped the shark here. It’s embarrassing.

its the first round of football for premiership points - it’s Round One.

Another [censored] Thursday night match. I was hoping to go away for this one and take my girls to their first interstate trip.

Just do it. Take em out of school for 2 days. Theyll get more out of travelling to sydney than they will at school those days.

Ha ha,I hear you. Believe me my youngest would love to have 2 days out of school. Makes it tough for me when you run your own business that means one and a half days off. Was hoping for a Friday night or Saturday/ Sunday game. I’ve seen enough already Dillon Out!!!!!!!

It’s part of the season so the usual transport crowds and expenses are not “extra”. Mostly it’s a home game like any other and you get a few months notice of it happening. 

Sorry that the AFL puts your life out on such a special night of the week. That dastardly Andrew Dillon he is as bad as that Gill bloke. 

They should be sorry, it's extremely inconsiderate of them.

But honestly it does put your life out if you are faffing around with public transport at near midnight and have an early start the next day. Not everyone's footy going days/nights are created equal like yours.

As for having a few months notice, when has anyone ever planned ahead for a cold winter night that might deter them from going that day, the funds they will have available or the cruddy feeling of taking an hour to get home from the MCG late on a Thurs night? By that logic if you're going out for dinner in a few months you should have a much better chance of knowing what you're going to order because you have plenty of notice.

Was hoping the Sydney game would be on the weekend to make it easier to travel up. 

Was earlier rumoured to be Sunday 3:20pm.

Yep this sucks. I want to go but a Thurs night makes it so much harder for Melbourne fans. 

I accept the same argument applies for all four games but therein lies the rub of Thursday night games - they fail the game’s most important stakeholder, the fans.

For everyone bemoaning the fact that an interstate game means that they are unable to attend, welcome to my world which is spent bemoaning the fact that we can’t easily get to attend most games for the entire season!

Living in Sydney, this will be the first time in memory, that I may be able to attend a Dees game as a season opener! It’s fantastic!!

Sydney in Sydney to open the season will be tough considering the respective off seasons. 

Grundy v Max again like the old days.

Rather play them up there than down here. 

I reckon playing them first up, before they've had a chance to gel as a team is probably as good an option as we'll get.

By round seven we’ll all be on the same number of games played.

    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.

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    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.
