Sadly I don't get to the ammos these days. My eldest grand daughter is into basketball so we go to that every Saturday. The be honest I enjoy that much more than the MFC these days. If it wasn't for the Dees I would have no interest in AFL. 

So life’s good spending time with a loved one while they are doing something they enjoy

I don’t suffer fools old dee, they don’t warrant my time or response. Hope you’re going well and not to disheartened by the current situation we find ourselves in.

I have my health, a roof over my head, a wonderful wife, sons who are turning into fine young men and the family overall are in a good place.

On the footy side of things, what can I say, us older folk have seen this all before, whilst the MFC are currently struggling, it’s not all bad, I have a role that I love and keeps me busy, I occasionally get to watch my boys play and still regularly get to go to the Ammo’s to share good times, talk about old stories and a few beers with good friends. In a nutshell as bad as things may seem there are always positives.

Keep the faith and enjoy your time with family and if you’re still getting along to the Ammo’s smile and enjoy 

Oh god, kill me now. What a load of maudling sh##te

INCORRECT, we are the oldest professional football club in the world.

168 years old.

And we'll be around for another 168 years - long after we are all forgotten.

A proud club, with a proud history, with players who have given their all, even in the many barren years. 

A proud club that deserves respect- least of all from supposed supporters.

 I've had it up to here with posters on this forum taking every opportunity to slag off the mighty dees.

Well said Binman. Totally agree.

  I am so bored by the negativity on this site and general lack of respect shown to fellow DL’s that I find I am no longer enjoying reading the posts on here. Used to luv it, but now find it hard to get enthused to read them. I now resort to looking for favoured posters, but even these are often in battle with others. There are posters on here that I swear only come out of the woodwork when things ain’t so hot, just to sink their boots in. Never hear from them when things are good. I just don’t understand that. [censored] me, it’s just a game.

Don’t worry Neil, you still have my brilliant and wonderfully insightful posts to read.

Don't do that picket. So what if posters disagree with you. It's a broad church here. Plenty of room for dissenting opinions like yours.

Nice one Binman. Many thanks.

We have 2 living hall of farmers. Hassa  83 years old and neitta. Why would they attend.?

Goody in as a player. He's a bit busy.

Glad we didn't turn up. Left more space for Dane swan's associates.

Never explain and never complain is my motto.

Great work by Kate and Pert in not jumping hoops to satisfy some posters on here and lazy media types in general. 

Go Dee's. I have us 8th after this weekend

That's why I stay away from here after every loss, most posters don't have a backbone

Welcome to my world, NC. 😭

btw, you nailed it… there is a group of posters who only rear their sour heads when things aren’t going well. It happens too often to be a coincidence. As the saying goes: Misery Loves Company, and the usual suspects sure luvs them a good ol’ group misery-fest after a loss. These selfsame gloom-mongers call folks like me delusional. But I’d sooner be full of hope and enthusiasm no matter how we’re travelling than to be wallowing in abject wretchedness.

I sometimes wonder who these people barrack for, since it clearly isn’t Melbourne.

This is the greatest football club in the world. We should have a special system to keep ungrateful fans from ever being fans of the Red and Blue. I propose it in the next election .

I don't come on much other than match days and a day or two during the week because of the foam that constantly spews out on these boards. If it's not outlandish sweeping negative statements about how [censored] we are, it's people who whinge about negative behaviour on here before it's even happened which is just as negative. 

You want to go back to the times of just chatting footy? Find a few mates and text them regularly, that's what I've been doing. It's better than running the open gauntlet of garbage here day after day like a soap opera.

How can you say that to @layzie Old Dee? Wasn’t it you who said, just a couple of days ago, that you’d had enough and were taking an extended break from DL? (Mind you, said “extended break” happened to last a good 6 hours!).

Yes I did, funny about that. Good pick up. Some comments I just couldn't  resist. After the shambles of a game like  KB it pays to let your brain settle before moving fingers. I will probably go tonight even though I have less than zero confidence.

Today I went to my grand daughters basket ball game. They won by 1 point. After trailing all game, the opposition led by 1 point with 10 seconds to go all they need to do was maintain position. With 6 seconds to go we stole the ball. Our  girl is a good player but not a good shooter. With all our hearts in our mouths she drove to the ring and straight in.  I have seldom celebrated more with parents etc. nothing the Dees can possibly do tonight will equal that game. By they way they are the Devils!

    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.
