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.

There are no milestones for our Round One match vs Dogs. This means we have the entire front of the banner just for Gus.

We welcome any and all suggestions for banner content.

Note: one of the AFL’s rules is no insulting opposition players/clubs on banners, regardless of whether or not a player’s career has been cruelly cut short due to the deliberate action of a filthy thug… of course, that’s just an example.

We’ve had the suggestion of a minute’s applause (standing ovation) at the 10-minute mark of the first quarter.
We’ve also had the suggestion of as many as possible cheer squad members behind the goals wearing a Gussy-style helmet.

These are just two examples of ideas that are welcome and that I’ll put to our esteemed DA leaders, along with banner content suggestions.

Let’s show Gussy how much we love and respect him!

A standing ovation at the 10 minute mark sounds good WCW.
Maybe we can all light a cigar at the same time like Gus did in the middle of Optus. They won’t be able to kick all of us out for smoking.

I hope that at least one of the players (Gawn or Trac my picks) will do a golf swing celebration after a goal in tribute to Gus.

As for Dees fans I think the 10min mark 1min applause is a good idea.

Just a red and blue helmet, with black where the face would be, and two eyes peering out of the darkness.

While I believe any of the suggested examples would/could be good suggest the DA work in with the Vlub about its intentions on that day to honour him.  I would think he would be offered a motorcade or walk around the ground at half time. 

At sometime Gus highlights  on the scoreboard should be shown if he is honoured with the half time respects. 

Certainly the 10 minute clap is a popular one and banner tributes both sides perhaps if possible. 

Club  should also promote It as a Gus Day and some item be chosen as a tribute or T shirt for fans all ages. 

no pressure but it’s only 3/4 weeks away!

Great idea WCW, like other posters have commented, is it possible to include on a banner?

We are certainly working with the Club to make this a Gus Day.

The T-shirt idea has been put forth and (time permitting) seems like it could be a thing 🤞🏼 

Unfortunately, unless the Club can work something out with our partners, there’ll be an ad on the other side of the banner. Regardless, and weather permitting, we hope do a ‘show’ - raising the banner, lowering it, turning it, then raising it again so as everyone gets to see it.

Thanks for the ideas, 58er

    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.
