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.


To the brave ones...

I hope he didn't drive to the ground. Car would have been trashed if it had one of those little Demon stickers on the number plate!

He does appear to have positioned himself quite selectively, towards one end of the spectrum of their cohort...

Compare and contrast with Bayley's and Ben's backdrops...

Apparently zombies aren't into eating opposition supporters if they're suffering from any kind of viral illness like the flu, covid, chicken pox etc as they know it's not good for their health.

Get well soon lone Demon!

Whatever happened to the "whoo-hoo-hoo" guy at Adelaide Oval? Wasn't he a cameraman or something?

He was a cameraman at Adelaide Oval. One of our own DL-ers has a brother who ran the AV at AO for some time and said that the mystery was no one ever knew if he barracked for the Dees or just let loose with the woo-hoo for S&Gs.

What a great pic and post.

So true.

Those crowd shots sent shivers down my spine.

Not a great advert for Gather round.

Poor man probably had to cheer the team on internally.

On Saturday night I was giving out flags and giant heads etc. before the match. Towards the back of our bay I came across a “mixed marriage” couple, he a Dees man, her a Port gal. I said to him, “What happened here? You dropped the ball in the wifey stakes!” He said, “We’ve been together for 15 years and I’ve spent the whole time trying to convert her, now I’m just giving up.” I said to her, “And you’re fine to sit in a bay full of crazy Dees fans?” She said, “Have you SEEN Port fans??? I feel safer sitting with you guys!” 😂

Also, a family asked if there was any giant heads left. I brought the Chin head to them and said, “this is the last available giant head. But it’s by absolutely NO means the least. Chin is a much loved and respected young player and a future champ of our Club. The dad said, “I know, he’s my nephew.” And if there was any doubt, it was dispelled when I noticed the distinctive familial square jaw, even on the kids! 😁

I was worried for a while after Chin had drop in form last year but he is having a bumper season.

He and Nibbler , Kozzy are a dangerous trio up forward.

Without wanting to count eggs late or hatch chickens early one has to think our change in gameplan makes Kozzy and Chin far more dangerous now we aren't continually cutting the ball off on the wings and banging it back into a packed F50

I know a few Scottish people that would be upset at me if I didn’t mention that Jimmy Barnes and Bon Scott were both born in Scotland.

If you're ever going to a Port V Dees game at AO, do sit in the top few rows of the river stand behind the right of screen goals.

It's half empty and mostly comprises families or 16-20 year olds who are on their phones all game and probably don't even realise they're at the footy.

I won't have that luxury again this Thursday as it's a likely a full house.

I fought Angels lived in heaven, that Barnsey was a Scoot, and Bon Scott's real mame was Bon Mot.

Yep, and I’d add that the addition of BBB has been very important on that front as well.

The reason that lone Dees supporter can comfortably sit among those Port fans is that a South Australian led the practical development of penicillin.

You could almost start a weekly thread - Army tales or the like, I always enjoy your stories of who you met or what you observed from the cheer squad. 

Anyway I’m going to mention this in the Kade thread, but I really feel he’s becoming a ANB 2.0, does so much defensive stuff, I actually worry when he looks like missing with a knee.

    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.
