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.

Thanks George_o_t_o it is great to see the file up and running for 2024 even if the numbers are down quite a bit, two failed finals series have had their impact. We need some wins to rekindle belief.!!

What did Kate say BDA?

“Collingwood members set the benchmark when it comes to achieving huge – and let’s be honest – noisy crowd attendances; and that is a benchmark we want to chase,” Roffey told this masthead.

 

“I believe Melbourne can and should be a big club on and off the field. We have seen our membership grow to record numbers over the last few years and are on our way to reaching 75-80 thousand members, and I want to see that number keep growing. We have always had a great rivalry with the Pies on the field. Let’s add the membership-number challenge to that great rivalry off the field.”

Roffey went on to explain that her remarks should be interpreted as a call to arms for Melbourne supporters. In 2023, the Demons had 70,785 members to Collingwood’s 106,470, while the two clubs’ average crowds, including finals, were 43,860 for Melbourne and 64,429 for Collingwood.

“The crowd at a game makes a huge difference - especially a noisy crowd giving their team 100 per cent support. I’m not sure supporters realise how much difference it does make to players on the field - but it matters a lot to them. When the MCG is full and our members are making lots of noise it gives the players a massive lift out on the field.

“I will keep encouraging every Melbourne supporter to play their part by getting to games, by being louder in the stands - and getting behind their players whether the team is five goals up or five goals down - because it does matter.

Roffey admitted, “I may well go down in history as the only Melbourne president who has ever said anything positive about Collingwood - but in the context of the conversation I was having around the size of the club and crowd attendances I don’t think there is any confusion for supporters.

“We love playing at the MCG - our spiritual home; and we want to see the ’G full of red and blue every time we play there. Our supporters are the ones who will make our club big - and I would like to see them filling the stands at every one of our games and being a part of our incredible journey.”

Thanks BDA Kate always makes sense, it is definitely more enjoyable watching the Dees play when we are surrounded by like minded supporters making a lot of noise.😁

Good

As long as the Club continues to think of itself as Big and Growing. Last year we got shafted badly, we have to stand up and play hard ball on and off the ground. 
Years ago we merely made up the numbers. 
Not anymore…

You have to think BIG to aim there. Same with Perty. 75,000 members nearly there Flags from all teams in 4 years. 

Some fans don’t know how hard it is in the AFL, it is extraordinarily competitive, I hate it when some cans say we don’t get crowds. We are usually in the first half dozen each season now. MCG is a bonus for us we deserve as our home ground for money making. 50,000 plus average was a dream a decade ago.

Yes we are on a good track. I worry a little about The Gamestyle, we simply have to kick better scores 

9 Goals a game simply won’t cut it long term. We have to trade hard next summer for KPF’s. We may have to trade some midfielders to do it. 
But we simply have to score more efficiently

Nearly 7k down on this time last year is a fair chunk to make up.

Not sure our marketing's been very inspiring or prominent enough since the flag TBH.

The off field stuff might have impacted somewhat also.

Giving up players we need is not the answer. Getting more out of the ones we have is the contract if we wish to be in the flag hunt.

I wonder whether Kate Roffey's comment re being more like Collingwood is to do with their memberships increasing due to off field discretions while ours seem to have dropped. I'm not too concerned as the numbers will bounce back if our on field form warrants it.

I don't understand how we can't repeat last year's feat of 70,000. This is the best place our club has ever been in. You're insane to not be on board!

I'm always bemused by those that don't just automatically renew year-to-year. A successful club only becomes so through dedication, not by jumping on the bandwagon should we be in shape by midyear.

Wasn't sure where to put this, but my son came home from pre school today singing the [censored] Carlton song. He said one of his friends was singing it. It also came up on the kids algorithm on Spotify when my wife was driving him home. 

I suppose it's possible to push the theme song out on Spotify. It's actually a very clever way of potentially getting new supporters. 

We should do this.

Push Grand Old Flag on socials and Spotify.

My wife was quite surprised with my reaction, which was something like that's a terrible song, we don't sing that in this house. 🤣

I'm like you do realise you're married to a nuffy that lives the MFC, so much so that I went to the footy the day after our wedding, and planned the date around the footy.

    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.
