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.

Are they really going to call it Round Zero? 

The AFL needs to start acting their age. 

It’s actually called “Opening Round” and the following round will be called “Round One”

Fair point. But we've been shoved to the Sunday wasteland for decades when only 13000 people bothered to turn up to home games.

I'll take some commercial success and relevance in the competition now which will only strengthen the club.

I do hope there's enough family friendly games throughout the year so everyone can have a chance to attend half a dozen+ games.

The Pies fixture last year had a run of prime time exposure early followed by the biggest gift of day games through the back end of winter. Allowed them to do big training blocks and rest players. 

Obviously we won’t get that same gift but with the creation of another prime time game in round 0 I hope we aren‘t shafted out of another day game. The Swans were one team we played twice in the day last year.

Full fixture tomorrow Thursday?

Definitely tomorrow. Whether it’s the fixture in its entirety is another matter. 🙄

Thanks. Floating last 7 rounds or so?

I want to make the Perth trip this year so I'm keen to see where that falls.

I think our bye will be associated with our ANZAC Eve match, I believe that will be in  R6.

Not sure about these posts. Are they unofficial or guesses or confirmed facts from a reliable source?

My response is and this is just my gut feel common sense and footy facts chipping in. 

(1) Anzac Eve match is a given vs Tigers. If you are alluding to a bye before then Round 5 ( probably same for Tigers as well) it’s a Wed night so that might be the Bye before Round 6 as (if) Anzac Eve is considered as a Round 6 fixture. 
(2) Clint who do we play in Round 4 on Thursday night? Pre Easter Lions host Pies normally as a stand alone. Are you guessing or fantasising ?

Fisted by the AFL yet again - Swans and Crows away.

Good for exposure and playing prime time but at the cost of being the ones to travel and be at a disadvantage as per usual.

Here’s hoping we get a crack at both clubs at the G…

This is a take I don’t agree with. 

What if we avoid trips to Brisbane and GWS? They were the two strongest interstate sides this year. We have to play interstate games so we can’t just get West Coast 5 times.

How do Pies rest players because of Day games in blocks? 
Seriously don’t remember much Resting other than last Round and we all had a bye  afterwards.

If you are  talking of handling players conservatively we did that that’s not resting.

Please name the blocks of day games after winter and Pies also finished season with 3 successive Friday night games at G and Marvel if I am correct.

I can’t imagine they’d gift us the whole fixture at once. My guess is that they’ll release it in ‘blocks’ again, same as this year. Definitely makes booking flights a pain in the neck.

Will have to be a West Coast game as we play Freo in the Alice in Round 10.  As haven’t played WC at G for ages you might be unlucky with no Optus game in WA in ‘24.

Yes. But I'm genuinely surprised they didnt send essendon instead of Carlton as it would have given them much more flexibility around anzac day

Disagree 

Can work in Bye for both Tigers  and us around our tricky Wed night Anzac Eve fixture.

Tiges play Suns in opening round on Coast so easier to match up I presume for 2 teams to have same bye dates around their fixture.

It's possible we get double ups with WC or Freo.

Feels like since the flag we’ve barely played in the day time. My niece and nephew went to two games last year. I’m sure parents had similar issues.
 

Spot on. Since the flag we've played with the red ball just twice at the G. Once against St Kilda in 2022 and once against Freo in 2023.

I'd like to see more Saturday afternoon and early Sunday afternoon games at he G to add variety to the schedule. However Saturday afternoon footy seems to be reserved for the also rans if the second half of last season was a guide.

I'd also like to see us play at Marvel more than once, at the expense of 1 or 2 less interstate trips. I figure we won't get more than 13 MCG games like last year.

    ICEBREAKER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons have broken the ice for season 2024 with a pulsating come-from-behind victory over Port Melbourne in which it took the lead for the first time at the halfway mark of the final quarter. The game played in mild Autumn conditions in neutral territory at Kinetic Park, Frankston, never reached great heights in standard but it proved gripping in character at the end at the Casey Demons overcame the Borough to win by 15 points after trailing badly early in the second half.  P

    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.
