  • 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.

Pretty sad that they need to post this. But at least they have a banner for their girls, many of the clubs don’t. 😔 

The culture that our women’s team have going is made up of many components. One part of that is the passion the Demon Army have for this team. If your team has a banner and the other doesn’t, you are already ahead of the opposition before the game even starts. 
Good on you WCW and your Demon Army companions

Nice to have a gameday to look forward to after all the off-field nonsense we've been dealing with lately.

Reckon our superior fire power will get us across the line but it will be a tough contest. 

Dees by 10 points

In the other big game hoping the Lions can do us a favour against the crows.

Are we a very good team, or a very, very good team?  We will find out this evening.

I think we are the latter!  Dees by 10 points.

Thanks, FND. We do what we do purely out of love for our team. But it’s always nice to know we’re appreciated. I know some might think it’s just a banner, no biggie. But the girls tell us all the time how much it means to them. Katie and Tyla mentioned it yet again at the AFLW function on Thursday in their speeches. They also love the guard of honour every week. We sometimes have such a long G.O.H. it’s quite the spectacle. There’s no limit to the number of people allowed on the ground at suburban venues and boy, do we go all out. 😁

We actually feel bad for oppo cheer squads who can’t muster enough people to make and/or get a banner up. North are genuine contenders yet they have to ask for helpers. If I wasn’t on our banner crew I’d help them tonight. Even in the men’s at our match vs North in Hobart they asked for our assistance. We ended up taking over 🤭 such is our enthusiasm and the camaraderie of cheer squads.

Anyways, tonight’s match is a true test for us. I’m confident we’ll win.

The mighty Dees by 16 points. Zanks to kick a hatful (as my mate @layzie would say 😁).

Not gloating (except so gloating it’s nuts) but I’ll be on my usual cheer squad duties tonight, that is, after I’m done hobnobbing in the Pavilion Function Room at Ikon thanks to @Katrina Dee Fan who kindly offered me a ticket in her place as she can’t attend tonight (enjoy Paul McCartney, Kat!). I’ll deign to chat to any Demonlanders who might be at the match, so long as my posh (new) friends don’t see me doing so. 😁

LOL the folks at the function won’t know what hit ‘em. 😂

Jeez. Watched some of the Western Bulldogs game. they have fallen hard. No wins from 7. Belted by an expansion team and conceding 96 points in the process. I have a soft spot for them given they flew the flag for women's footy with the Dees for a long time but those in charge of the women's program at Whitten Oval have run it into the ground. Big changes needed.

Lions playing very well but poor goal kicking letting them down. Hopefully won't come back to bite them in the second half. 

That seems to be happening

So do we need adelaide to win to get closer to the mill or bris to win so get closer to top?

 

 assuming we win

Great question. For mine the McClelland is of the utmost importance at this stage. If we’re not minor premiers, while interstate finals suck, it doesn’t mean too much. The million dollars on the other hand…

 

edit: scratch that. Go Lions!!!

 

edit (again): I’ve decided I want the McClelland AND a premiership. Is that too much to ask?

Brisbane should be gifted a couple of goals just as compensation for having to wear those hideous jumpers.

I just saw the result of the Lions game!! That makes tonight's game massive. A chance to go top of the ladder in a comp where the top team gets home advantage for the grand final is HUGE

What an incredible welcome to country that was.

I've only had a little bit of time with elders, that fella covered so much from what I've learnt from them.

Mentioning children born on their land are considered part of their country and from their country is beautiful.

Loved it.

    THAT WAS THE YEAR THAT WAS: 2023

    When the dust settled on 2023, the Melbourne Football Club coach Simon Goodwin lamented that the club knew it needed to score more to land a second premiership in the current era. He opined that an average of one more goal per game would have had his charges in football’s stratosphere.  Goodwin was right and, based on his team’s scoring opportunities, that extra goal (and more) was well within its grasp if only they had better converted their shots at goal. Take the side’s last six defeats
