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.

OLD MAN ALERT:

The team sheet on the MFC site hurts my eyeballs.  Not the players on it - the font, the sizing and the spacing. Took me way longer to figure out who is playing (and where) than is necessary. 

Hopefully that is my only gripe with the MFC today.

Not an old man alert (or maybe it is and I’m now an old man). 

That team sheet graphic is terrible. There’s a great post in the now-closed pre-game thread explaining all the reasons why it’s awful.

 (and anyone else who was unable to get a ticket yesterday)...  it looks like things are ok now as I just tried again and got my ticket  👍


 

Thanks JTR, got my ticket.

Possibly would not have searched again without your prompt.

Addit, what was the 77 cents to secure the ticket about.

I had a ticket, they say to upgrade for $8.40 to guarantee entry, then say something about getting it secured (more than 100 did it).

Funny, I guess if they don't ask! Reminds me of the beggars in Kathmandu.

Not all that fussed about the result but I want to be walking out of Ikon Park tonight with confidence that we’re ready to hit the ground running against Sydney next Thursday and that we’ll manage ok with a weakened forward line.

Not only is our forward line not getting any better next week it’s actually getting worse without Kozzie.

Our forward line are missing a few but I'm still bullish about those we will put out on the paddock. Also reckon Swannies backs are not that good. All depends on the mids. We win the pill and at least deliver it into the forwards a bit better than in the past we will win this.

Yeah aside from McCartin and Rampey I can’t name another quality Sydney key/tall defender.

As you said, it will depend on our quality of inside 50 entries and what kind of angle we’re taking our shots from.

They signed Joel Hamling who will fill the void left by P McCartin and they also have Blakey.

From a buddy who just arrived at Ikon…

For those driving to the game, at 5:10pm (now) plenty of parking within metres of Gate 5 (south east corner) on Princes Park Pde (between cemetery and Princes Park).

35 and strong northerly winds... wonder what it has to be to call it off

It’s gonna be uncomfortable enough for us supporters, I really feel for the players, playing in this stifling heat and it’s just a practice match. Really should’ve been rescheduled.

Filling fast. 10:1 blues:Dee's ratio 😛. As a brunswegian I know this is hostile territory. 

Half the players having very chill warmup on royal parade end. Kolt is warming up. Spargs doing media. Player families lining up with the genpop to get in. Weird scenes but good to be here.

    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.
