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 hate Thursday nights. If we’re playing it’s tough enough to watch it on TV, let alone get there if it’s in Melbourne. I’m sure ratings were solid, there’s nothing else to watch, but the question IMO is whether fans like it when their own club plays on a Thursday. 

Yeah absolutely agree, I hate it for when we play.

But it's great for tv in the background at home. I am more likely to consume more football games when they are on tv Monday and Thursday nights, compared to say Sat or Sunday arvos.

My thoughts are, if the AFL is going to use Monday and Thursday then it needs to be consistent. Not selected weeks only.

Dees in the NT

The Demons will play Fremantle at TIO Traeger Park on the Sunday afternoon of round 12 (June 2).

Don't mind this as an on going fixture.

The Alice game will give us a week or so to recover for an "away" game against the pies on QB which falls on June 10 next year. I'm guessing our bye will follow that so will be interesting to see if we get screwed again by playing on the Thursday night after it.

Last I heard was that we would play our first game against the Dogs on Sat, Mar 16 and therefore we were not involved with Round Zero....

Every second day it's been reported in the media that we're playing Sydney in Sydney for round "zero" on Labor day weekend and it's being billed as the Brodie Grundy rematch. 

I'd be surprised if we're now not involved.

MFCSS actually

They could screw is more by deeming our gather round v Adelaide to be our home game 🙄😮

Technically we could play Adelaide twice at Adelaide Oval next year. One in Gather Round and one later in the year.

Richmond and GWS both "hosted" Sydney and Hawthorn respectively two times. One in Gather Round and one later in the year.

Geelong one of the teams playing the Suns in Darwin.

nice... looking forward to Collingwood making the trip in the near future.

Cannot see the older brigade of Geelong handling that trip very well.

Bulldogs lost that match last year and their follow up match in Melbourne. Together with playing an SA in Gather Round the three losses ended their season.

In a season where most games are decided by under 20 points every little bit counts

I have no problem with 1 game a year in Alice. Quite like it in fact. We have a longish history there now and a growing fan base as well. We have done some good work there of which I'm proud of the club for.

Sometimes you have to look at the bigger picture and applaud the club for instigating projects like the Santa Teresa Oval Project as well other positive community work. 

Absolutely. You often see a lot of locals wearing Melbourne gear during non-Melbourne NT games. Plus the club and players like to engage with the community whilst they are there, it means a lot to them Melbourne coming back year after year.

Couldn't agree more. 

Most people I know like Thurs night footy for the TV aspect and something to do but very few of them are prepared to go to the G on a Thurs night and do the whole nine yards with transport, crowds, expenses etc.

I'm sure there are people here that are happy to go on Thurs night and the TV ratings are great but I personally don't like it. 

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.

Where did you hear that? There has not been any news item in the press and our Swans game in Round zero is I believe all but confirmed on Thursday.

How any one could believe a D/Ler with a fake looking Demon Hawk motive is beyond me. 

It was a very emotional time for loyal and passionate Dees fans in 1996 and for this to be thrusted at us on this forum is particularly bad form. 

Oh and the fact that you say we are still playing the Dogs on Mar 16 has no bearing on the game a week earlier as the bye I believe is factored in for all the “ground zero teams” in early in the season say Round 5 or 7 perhaps. It won’t be our Anzac Eve game vs Tigers though.

i would like this to become a feature round. Melbourne versus Sydney is a constant comparison. Marketers gold.

According to the Age we will feature in round zero, and then get an early season bye, as well as a mid year bye.

All round zero teams get a bye in the first month or so of the season apparently. 

It'll be really interesting to see how we use that, from a fitness and fatigue management perspective.

Perhaps we have a bye the weekend before Gather Round given we have a Thursday night game on Gather Round weekend.

Round zero - @ Sydney

Round 1 - V Dogs

Round 2 - V someone.

Round 3 - Bye

Round 4  - Gather Round @ Adelaide (Thu night)

Why are you always so angry?

There’s no reason for you to be so antagonistic when speaking with fellow-posters, especially when they’ve not said anything particularly inflammatory. Your belligerence is puzzling on a Dees forum. Save that sh!tt for oppo fans if you really feel the need to square up with someone.

So dees play back to back H&A games at the SCG vSwans. Wouldnt surprise me. We recently played 2 H&A games at the Gabba in 3 rounds .

Any confirmation yet on what round we get flicked down to the Cattery?

 

Why are you complaining about the Gabba and SCG? The fixture has never been about playing every interstate team at their ground in alternating years. Sydney have played us at the G every year since 2011 except 2016.

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.

    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.

    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.
