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.

Exclusive: The Crows will again open Gather Round next year with a blockbuster clash at Adelaide Oval, facing Melbourne on Thursday night. 
 

farrrrk !  Are we just the AFL punching bag again.  

As mentioned above, Carlton and Bulldogs drew the short straw in 2023.

Us and Essendon have drawn the short straw next year.

Two other clubs will draw the short straw in 2025.

I personally don’t see the issue.

Not sure its been mentioned but one of our major sponsor Jaguar will no longer be continuing in 2024.

I've just been told this from a contact who has input in the manufacturering of our guernseys.

Hertz will take on the back of the gurnsey major sponsorship.

Club looking for Short sponsorship to replace Hertz. I 

That will be a horrible looking logo.. big yellow patch on the back

rd 1 Opening game away v Sydney 

Anzac Eve away Wed24april v Tigers 

Kings Birthday away v Magpies Monday after

Geelong away on a Thursday night post mid season bye

North away in tassie on a Sunday 1.10 time slot 

Gold coast away in Darwin in July

Adelaide away in gather round 

Freo away in the final round 

Port home game in alice Springs (home game)

BUT surely as $$$ cash cows with 75,000 in the house we get these 3 games 

we get to have two Home big Friday nights:  v Pies (home) round 21/22 AND  v Bombers (home) pre Anzac game round 6/7

AND Saturday night two Home game v Tigers round 19/20  v Blues round 3/4

As a general rule, if your Round 1 game is at home, your final game will be away and vice versa. There are a few exceptions eg. North might have a home game at Marvel in Round 1 and a home game in Tassie in Round 24. Eg. 2 MCG tenants (excluding Melb) might have home and away games at the G in the first and final round - eg. Carlton, eg. Carlton eg. Carlton. When a team gets a home game at the start and end of the year (rare), it will be an interstate team and the following year they may have both as away games eg. Port.

In the pre COVID 2020 fixture we got stiffed.

Round 1 in Perth and round 23 in Hobart (although the fixture got torn up for obvious reasons.

Yes we drew the short straw next season but that is so predictable. I said on DL a few months back we will play Crows or Port next season in Gather Round. Its so predictable.

Last year Collingwood got 10 days break before Gather round. We got 6  and we lost.

Will lowly Hawthorn play at the Cattery. Theyre well overdue but will they?  We'll know soon enough.

Dees to the Gabba again and Norff in Tassie- our injury graveyard?

I think Crows will get  red carpet service next season due to AFL making amends for the Swans debacle.

Just eyeballed now. Gather Round,  Pies v Hawks  AO

Hilarious.

Too early to call a change of 💔 from the AFL fixture Tin men. But a premium position given the local interest and venue. Demons can Fly in and Fly out with the Grange Hermitage. Crows can warble 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow', as a lament, accompanied by ukulele from the Adelaide Oval dungeons. Blues can tip toe thru the dewdrops seeking a humility transplant.

Not that I particularly give a [censored] but Richmond v St. Kilda at Norwood. Would have had that game at Adelaide Oval and moved the Geelong Doggies game to Norwood. Or for [censored] and giggles have the Doggies play at Mt Barker………wherever that is

One day someone will be able to explain to me the point of the "gather" round.  Till then I'll continue to wonder why (surely it's not to make money?).  There is enought difficulty in arranging something even approaching a fair draw given all the constraints that exist already.

Whats the point of the Gather Round?

Its an additional 9 games of mostly dull non marquis games played in a small Aussie rules state. Whats it promoting? The Gather Round should be played in NSW and Qld  if at all.

Its a free lunch for Port and Crows getting an additional home game.

I expect the Crows to finish deep inside the eight next year.

MFC better have a big pre season.

Great. I’m flying to Melbourne from Alice the same weekend of gather round, hoping I could see the Dees play in Melbourne, something I haven’t done in about 10 years. Thanks AFL FFS. Even any game would have been good…

Hope we play at home the following weekend when I fly home.

    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
