My Melbourne Demons evangelical preseason mission to Mozambique is now complete - including an absurd 2.30am start for the Richmond scratch - and I'm hoping I may have converted at least one or two of the locals for the real stuff's much more time-friendly opening fixture. My concern however is that while grasping the complexity of the rules is difficult enough, even for AFL natives according to our match-day threads, getting their heads around the concept of Round Zero may be a bridge too far. Go Dees! See you crazies on the other side.

It looks like your Boomer coffee plunger is lecturing your recalcitrant Gen-Y V's on the quality of caffeine/i50s over quantity.

In Sydney with 30 close mates from the Surfcoast. Unlike them I’m in the cheap seats - behind the Demon Army. Last time I sat with the cheer squad ‘Froggy’ Crompton kicked the winning goal. I’ve got a feeling Blake Howes could replicate the feat tonight.

Family road trip to see the game. But need to break the interstate trip curse... 2018 Prelim and Adelaide Oval against Crows 2020 when they deliberately OOB with no free kick, lost by a point. Wish me luck. Go Dees.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 19 vs Fremantle

    It's Game Day and the Demons have a golden opportunity to stamp their 2024 finals credentials as well as make amends for their disastrous first meeting against the Dockers earlier in the season when they take on Fremantle at Optus Stadium.

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    EARLY BIRDS by KC from Casey

    Wet, slippery conditions and threatening rainfalls greeted the VFL Bombers at the end of their long journey southeast of the big city on Sunday. The threatening weather combined with the fact that neither side had realistic prospects of advancing to action in September, meant that spectators gathered at a cold Casey Fields weren’t expecting a classic exhibition of football. Nor did they get one. Instead they were presented with a dour struggle that never reached great heights. It was a

    HEAVENS ABOVE by Molly Melbourne

    Who said the football gods and scoreboard attendants at the MCG don’t have a sense of humour? The gods spent a whole week teasing Demon and Bomber fans alike about Saturday night’s game. About how the entire match would be dominated by the hulking, brooding figures of 205cm Sam Draper and his 2IC Peter Wright lapping it up in the absence of Melbourne skipper and the club's No.1, No 2, No 3 and No 4 ruckman Max Gawn in the wake of that ankle injury. They painted pictures of Simon Goodwin ne

    PODCAST: Rd 18 vs Essendon

    The Demonland Podcast will not be LIVE again this week. Binman will do his regular stats files segment for the game against the Bombers and will also preview the upcoming match against the Dockers. He will not be taking any questions. I will post the show here once I receive Binman's stats files. You can also find it wherever you get your podcasts from. We will return in our regular format once I return after the Dockers match.

    For 3 quarters the Demons ground out a lead against the Bombers in tough wet conditions at the MCG before putting foot down early in the last quarter eventually winning by 17 points and putting them firmly back in the hunt for September action.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 18 vs Essendon

    It’s game day and the Demons face a massive test which may determine whether they have what it takes to play finals this season. The task has been made all the more difficult without their Premiership Captain Max Gawn.
