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.

You mean you don’t like the videos of players trying to roll a coin into a fork or stick a clothes peg on a singlet without getting caught? 🙄

Not even a mind as brilliant as yours would have been able to conjure up those two gems Rab!

Yes I meant off, not up.

I must have been thinking of the man shake.

Or maybe you just have better taste and were recalling a much better era of music Red.

We must excuse all swifties, for they know not what they're doing!

On both Saturday and Sunday I found myself on a train packed with Swifties. Sunday in particular was intense. I was given a schooling on all things Tay and ended up with three *friendship bracelets. Not a Tay fan, but couldn’t expect to meet so many delightful girls in one (confined) space ever again. 

For the uninitiated, the idea is to make friendship bracelets that are Tay-related using coloured beads and beads with letters for song titles etc. The bracelets are then swapped for other bracelets. Of course I didn’t have any bracelets so I swapped a Clarrie key ring (Tay’s fave number is 13), two ribbons (one red and one blue) and a chupa chup. 😁

Beside the point I know, but Fritta couldn’t care less about his name being misspelled. His mum, on the other hand… it’s her pet hate. Beware the wrath of Mrs Fritta, comms dept!  😅

Apparently she started the friendship bracelet thingy many moons ago when only 900 or so ppl attended her concert/s here.  Had a tiny bit of success since it seems!

I propose changing you're nic to WCS (S = Swifty)... or just Swifty!

Granted this is terrible, as is the misspelling of Bayley and the many other errors, but I don’t believe it warrants the level of scathing criticism it’s copping on here… and I’m a professional proofreader. I’ve been proofreading for over 20 years and believe me, my standard is very high. But you pick your battles.

While I agree our communications game needs lifting, I’d sooner all efforts are directed at winning a premiership, even at the expense of other aspects of the Club.

Someone on here compared us to West Coast in terms of comms. West Coast… the hot mess languishing at the bottom of the ladder apparently have a shmick livestream of open training sessions. Impressive, right?

I thought that Andrew Dillon endorsed our senior management and Leadership group quite strongly this afternoon. We have been let down but I would suggest it’s not by any of the club’s leaders.

I, my family and a lot of friends went absolutely bananas after our big win in ‘21 and I couldn’t speak more highly of the way we were able to order and receive our merchandise from MFC, our mob really stepped up and that was despite Covid, so I guess all clubs step up when the big bucks are concerned.😁

I too had no issues with dealing with the club when it came to the bounty of merchandise that I ordered. There was some items that were on back order or not available and they were very accommodating and helpful in a period that would have been very busy as a result of the flag and difficult as a result of COVID related issues.

That was likely due to COVID related supply chain issues.

Good interview with Max at Captains day at Marvel and a nice Gallery of all the new players with their families at the formal jumper presentations at Coterie function on the MFC website today. Max is looking very business like.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 07 vs Richmond

    It's Game Day and the Demons once again open the round of football with their annual clash against Richmond on ANZAC Eve. The Tigers, coached by former Dees champion and Premiership assistant coach Adem Yze have a plethora of stars missing due to injury but beware the wounded Tiger. The Dees will have to be switched on tonight. A win will keep them in the hunt for the Top 4 whilst a loss could see them fall out of the 8 for the first time since 2020.

    TRAINING: Tuesday 23rd April 2024

    Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin ventured down to Gosch's Paddock to bring you his observations from this morning's Captain's Run including some hints at the changes for our ANZAC Eve clash against the Tigers. Sunny, though a touch windy, this morning, 23 of them no emergencies.  Forwards out first. Harrison Petty, JvR, Jack Billings, Kade Chandler, Kozzy, Bayley Fritsch, and coach Stafford.  The backs join them, Steven May, Jake Lever, Woey, Judd McVee, Blake Howes, Tom McDonald

    OOZEE by The Oracle

    There’s a touch of irony in the fact that Adem Yze played his first game for Melbourne in Round 13, 1995 against the club he now coaches. For that game, he wore the number 44 guernsey and got six touches in a game the team won by 11 points.  The man whose first name was often misspelled, soon changed to the number 13 and it turned out lucky for him. He became a highly revered Demon with a record of 271 games during which his presence was acknowledged by the fans with the chant of “Oozee” wh

    TRAINING: Friday 19th April 2024

    They are out for a run just as it starts raining. It didn't last long, ended up a reasonable session weather wise.  Light duties, BBB, rehab Farris-White, Melky, Salem and Spargo, all with private trainers. They are all playing soccer, huge amount of noise. 36-40 (difficult to get a count) in the main squad, biggest I've seen it in ages. Choco is barking out the orders. Goody has intense body language as he observes. Bowey in a lime green cap (no contact), and in the sim

    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.
