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.

This is great to hear, been mixed reviews so far. Hopefully it's a sign that he's a quick learner?

They have this part of training every session where the noobs (rookies and new to the Club) train together away from the main group. My mate is excited about Caleb… right now he’s NOT in the noobs group as he usually is… he’s with the main group!

Do we think Schache is a genuine chance for round 1 as ruck/forward?

I don't mind it personally if he's upped his physicality, as he is super mobile.

Yep. He’s a lock for the unused substitute role

Oh that’s so funny it hurts. And so original, too! 🙄 

Anyways, apparently he’s going toe to toe with Max today and definitely NOT disappointing. I’ve been noticing, like most of the boys, he’s really toned up and is looking pretty strong. Also, on Wednesday, he was receiving praise from the coaches and at one point out in the middle all the boys applauded him and some were patting him on the back.

Hey WCW, just a note that noob is a bit more of a put down term and mainly comes from online gaming.

Newbie might be a better term if you don’t want to offend!

No worries, thanks 👍🏽 I thought noob was just another word for newbie… I didn’t know it was a derogatory term. It’s especially important for me to know this since putting our players down is something I simply don’t do.

Not a problem at all and I know that wasn’t and would never be your intention!

Steven May came off late and didn't look comfortable. Tried a couple of run throughs and shook his head. He spoke to the trainer and went inside. What this space I reckon.

Contact injury? Or was he trying to avoid the running session?

I didn't actually see what happened or how the injury was caused. Yeah it was a very convenient time to pack it in 🤣. I'll be attending training on Monday so I'll report back then.

What did you find out Matt Demon.???

I found out that there was no training today and that I wasted my time and petrol driving to Casey. I'll head to Gosch's on Wednesday and report back.

Always check the MFC site before heading down: https://www.melbournefc.com.au/teams/training-times

Or the social media pages of the players who all appear to be on mini vacations.

They trained today, at Casey.

Training next week is: Tuesday and Thursday at CASEY 

Saturday at GOSCH’S

As is usual, that’s subject to change But at this point in time, they’re the sessions for next week

Angus Brayshaw on today’s performance would be top of the leader board or very close to it. Any number of the others would be still working on their ‘skills’ …

…swings, slices, drivers or irons? and put put

Also good signs for Fullarton not hampered with his swings, etc, also good to see Jonesey, Rigoni and Nicholson in the Coterie group.😁

I assume no one was able to get down to training today?

Someone on Bigfooty went to training and said it was a full match sim.

Gawn was BOG by that far it wasn't funny. Sparrow, Viney, Spargo, Bowey and Brayshaw were reportedly good.

May went off injured with a groin to continue our best pre season since 2018/2019 but he said it wasn't serious.

A friend told me Caleb Windsor was super impressive in the full match sim today. Just about BOG.

    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.

    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.
