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.

should be a very good game

I’d be happy to leave with the four points, not wet to the bone and not crying and not copping abuse from the feral Port fans. Not a big ask. 🤷‍♀️

GO THE MIGHTY DEMONS!!!!

We've won two against no one special .

Today ( and next week )will give us a real clue as to where we stand this season.

Are we any good?  [censored] yes we are !

Dees by 27 ! This will include a blinder from Jack Viney and four goals from Kozzie.

 

The Manorial staff all have rather fetching red and blue Bunny outfits for tonight's celebratory after party.

Does anyone know our recent record without May in the side?  I have a mate who always tells me "No May no Melbourne" and has loaded up on Port.  I want to know if there's any truth to it.

I’ve never been to a Power game at Adelaide oval but have a couple of mates who reckon their supporters at home games are the worst in the league. Are there any worse you’ve encountered WCW?

We've banked a couple of regulation wins against ordinary sides which has built confidence and momentum. Port are a step up and will provide a proper examination.

Curtailing butters and rozee is half the battle. Can't give them the freedom of Adelaide Oval this year. If we do we'll pay.

Viney is a champion. He'll put in a big shift on his 200th. Max trac clarry to the fore also. win the midfield battle and limit the amount of ball into our Mayless defence should be the go.

I'm confident as always. 

Dees by 20 points

I believe it's something like 4 - 7 or roughly 37% of games

Same or very similar when both Lever & May are out

When he's in, no surprise it's a big turnaround but i can't recall the exact number that was put up.  If my memory serves me correct it was somewhere between 70% - 80% but don't hold me to it.

We need to start looking for a serious replacement pronto.

I'd be taking a good look at Sam Collins from the Suns if we can prise him out (signed to 2025) but he's not a young fella either so still need a medium term replacement. 

Adams was recruited as such so fingers crossed there and hopefully he will come on in the next few seasons at Casey.

In Torquay but will hopefully be back in Melb for the start and a good TV screen. Go Dees.

Torquay might be a bit  backward.  But surely they have good TV reception  no need to drive to town to see the Dee’s

Without May:

2021 - we beat Hawthorn and Adelaide both at the G but they were bottom 6 sides.

2022 - Lost to Sydney and Collingwood both at the G who were top shelf sides that year.

2023 - beat Dogs at the MCG but lost to Brisbane at the GABBA in the first two rounds.

It’s arguably not good.

Nervous and excited about this game 

Port are better than Hawks and dogs.

A real challenge game on an away ground.

We are good enough but will we?

Yes we bloody will.

In a word… NO.

Sure, Collingwood and Carlton and Essendon supporters are bad, but that’s in Melbourne which makes a huge difference. Port supporters are next level feral when you’re on their turf.They have zero qualms about letting you know how [censored] they think your team is… loudly.

LOL… was just chatting to a Dees supporter who was on my flight. As we parted ways he said, “I’ll see you in the trenches.” 😑

    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.
