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.


GAMEDAY: Rd 04 vs Adelaide



Recommended Posts

It's Game Day and the Demons have the opportunity to go two from two in their Adelaide Adventure as they face an under the pump Crows who should come out breathing fire as their season hangs by a thread.

Winning two games in Adelaide in 5 days will be an enormous fillip to our season.

The Crows will be trying to regain some pride and credibility in front of their home crowd, so expect early fireworks.

But..... after a tight first half we will  stone the Crows by 3 or 4 goals!

Expect a breakout night from Kozzie.

I’m not too sure about tonight… 5 day break, being in a mini hub for the week, I’m worried about May, Crows backs to the wall. 
Winning tonight will be huge for us. But if we are a bit flat and get rolled I think I’ll understand why

Lots to think about tonight,

5 day break,  crows need a win, Goody back in his hometown, might he want to go back at some stage. I think they will under estimate Windsor and he will have a blinder! MrMay is he right, 

will we be flat ? Hope not and think not. Our work rate is better this year. But if we bleed the first three goals again I might hide under the pillow.

start well and put them away. Kick straight 

go Dee’s

Mentioned in another thread that a South Australian played a very central role in the development of penicillin. The dual flush toilet also emerged from South Australia. Would be poetic if we could send the two local teams' seasons down the drain in the space of one week.

The Port win was huge. We showed a steely resolve not seen since 21. I've been buzzing since Sat night. that win has given me great belief about our chances this year.

i expect a tough battle. Crows have no choice other than full throttle effort. the locals will drive them out of town otherwise. but they have been genuinely putrid so far this season. there whole game style has collapsed. Walker is not right, Thilthorpe out. They can't kick goals.

We'll batten down the hatches and weather the early storm. 

Maxy and our mids will wrestle control and set us on our way. Fritschy BB and JVR with a couple will kick the goals for us.

Dees by 25 points.

Since round 0 our games have been professional,  disciplined and clinical. 

We have a new belief in the way we are playing and have stuck to our task. The camaraderie that was missing in 22,23 is back along with care for our teamates.

They are driven to go 2-0 in Adelaide and will turn it on tonight

Should win, would be disappointed if we don’t. Short break isn’t ideal but it’s the price we pay for popularity that they put us on in prime time instead of hiding us away on the 4:35 Sunday slot like they used to. 

ANB about to get the hardest tag of his life tonight after all the media attention this week. Should be able to burn them off by 3QT with his hard running.

Kozzys is due to kick a bag sooner or later.

I do hope it's tonight.

Jvr to do some damage too.

Crows to get caught who to stop the most...Petty or Bbb.

I do not like the Adelaide Crows.

It isn't so much that I hate them or that they have a high priority in my thoughts. I just don't like them.

Losing to them would feel like watching a slack colleague get an efficiency award for finally doing the basic thing they've been putting off for six months which caused you a whole lot of extra trouble.

I dislike them on the level of a debate about who is supposed to order printer ink.

Let's just get it done so we don't have to think about them again until next year.

    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.
