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 know what grinds my gears. HOw much the media was going to town on Oliver when he was in the pits, going through god knows what. Now that he has gotten through his 2nd game and is hopefully on the way back to the best version of himself, not a peep. No good story. Perhaps it is a little premature, but what about a little positive reinforcement from the industry to let him know that we are all happy to see him on the mend. 

It's a cesspool

I’m delighted for Matty. He’s such a sweet kid, I love him. I know I say that about all the young kids but I have a soft spot for Matty since he helped me at the KB BBQ last year - and because we share the same birthday, a few years apart of course. Don’t anyone say a word! 😡

thats so nice even though you were born in different centuries

It is embarrassing to find nothing about the Casey v Carlton practice game today on the MFC website.

In contrast on the CFC website there is a report and a video of the Carlton highlights including all 9 of their goals.

File under sad, but i'm about to watch the blues highlights. 

It might knock some of my natural optimism out of me.

The blues smashed us. We barely got a touch. Took one mark in 4 mins of highlights - and it was taken of us!

Problem is the way the game is now being played, and where I see it going with concussion issues, bulls won't be as important.

It's now more about speed and kicking skills than anything else. Contested possessions aren't as important as they once were.

Hoping someone has a better memory than me, but in recent years, in our last practice match, did we only play a four-man interchange plus sub, regardless of the extended bench allowed by the AFL? I vaguely recall the three extra players (or however many it was, never got on the ground and were only there in case of injury. If so, I hope that's not the case tonight with the temperature 🥵. Can anyone enlighten?

If the Kolt only played a half, he may get a run!

Loving the overall positivity from the DL’ers today… very very nice to see! Some really positive signs, thanks Andy for helping get us info and pics etc — love your work as always!

— Love that Kolt was up and about, pulled at HT so we’ll see him tonight!
 

— I think Fullarton rucking all game is a HUGE footnote personally… terrific signs! Could be a R1 Smoky now for sure given fwd woes and McAdam 80% likely to miss.. 

 

— SURELY Clarry plays now, it’d be counterproductive to hold him back now and likely a slight kick in guts. I’d have him 85% likely at present since he says he’s pulled-up well.
 

— Seston dobbing 3 is another lovely song, kid can finish & I think he might be a player if he can cont to build an AFL tank & physique, he is def closing in on both!!! We need all the natural kickers & finishers we can get…

— Wrapped for Jeffo, have been a keen observer of his since pre-draft and think with Petty (if he stays), JVR & MJ we’re building a really unique, dynamic set of Key Fwds to them have mids and smalls play off of. Each brings something very different, JVR the leading, aerobic, natural talent, Petty the crafty strong hands with high IQ & Jeffo the mark at highest-point, Bean-pole with some panache & flair!!!

 

— TMAC an important depth defender 

— Hore a natural fitting smart defender who adds something different & plays tall/small

 

— AMW cont to grow that 1-3% a week towards being an AFL player. Confident he’ll get there  and AGAIN is something different in his skill set, style & make-up to what we have in the smalls dept

    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.

    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.
