  1. Enough said 55 years will be 56 yrs of failure
  2. It truly became a “Cat Run” with an 80 point win to the home side, an outcome that had us wondering what happened to the Demons of 2018 when they got to a Preliminary final on the basis of their “brand” of contested football? Well that part hasn’t changed any, since the likes of Clayton Oliver can win the ball 44 times in a game including 15 clearances, Angus Brayshaw racks up 33 touches with Jack Viney chipping in for 27 of this own. In the ruck Max Gawn had 53 hitouts on the night, and yet on a wet and continuously raining night the team get beaten by 80 points! The Demons went
  3. I’m going a bit early but I don’t think we can win this one.
  4. How much should we be making out of Melbourne’s opening round loss on its home ground against an unfancied team from interstate in Port Adelaide? The game was barely over before the excuses were coming out that about the lack of preparation of the team, the fact that some players were playing injured or unfit and unable to handle the humidity and the heat, the team’s lack of run and spread, the lack of experience and having too many key players injured or (in the case of Steven May) suspended. The resort to excuses or reasons for failure should not sit well in light of the fact that it w

  7. DEJA VU by George on the Outer It couldn’t possibly happen, could it? It was just like last time. With a 2 point, after the siren loss to Geelong at Goomba stadium, the Demons fans were (once again) experiencing that feeling of Déjà vu that leads to an outbreak of MFCSS. Not just that feeling of losing after heading the Cats by nearly 4 goals into the final quarter, but the feeling that this loss may be just another version of the 2017 season when the Demons failed to make the finals by a kick or 2. For this loss puts Melbourn
  8. Please cast your votes for the best players in today’s game on a 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 basis.
  9. Well some of the players have been gobbing off again in the media prior to a big game against the Cats. Lets hope this time the “talk” can be backed up on the field. It’s time Dees.
  10. ON THE ROAD AGAIN by Whispering Jack The highway to Geelong has long been a well travelled road for Victorians, used for a variety of purposes ranging from trade, commerce and industry, education, leisure and entertainment. One could include sport as part of the last category but, for fans of the Melbourne Football Club, trips down that road have rarely reached any definition of the word "entertainment". Rather, they have often been equated with horror stories ending in long, silent and forlorn wintertime trips back to the city and home. Those days are over now with the Demons on the

  12. There are days when you can't hit the side of a barn door and days when you can't miss. Each of the team's had one of those days today. SLIP, SLIDING AWAY by George on the Outer Geelong dedicated the third round match against Melbourne to the 1980’s and, in doing so, featured some of the worst music to come out of that era with their fans stupidly dancing around to Brian Mannix and other such forgettables. It was cringeworthy but has the desired effect because it provided their opposition with another 80’s song as backdrop- Paul Simon's "Slip Sliding Away". For those born in mor

SLIP, SLIDING AWAY by George on the Outer Geelong dedicated the third round match against Melbourne to the 1980’s and, in doing so, featured some of the worst music to come out of that era with their fans stupidly dancing around to Brian Mannix and other such forgettables. It was cringeworthy but has the desired effect because it provided their opposition with another 80’s song as backdrop- Paul Simon's "Slip Sliding Away". For those born in more recent times, the lyrics of the song include this line:- "You know the nearer your destination, the more it slips slides away”...
  14. HONEYMOON OVER? by The Oracle Any thoughts that Melbourne's transition from perennial also ran to finals contender in 2017 would be smooth and uneventful were extinguished at the weekend with the game against Carlton. Not only did the team make heavy weather of a contest it was expected to win without much trouble (and possibly come out with a significant percentage boost), but it emerged from the second round of the season with a slap in the face from the Match Review Panel with gun recruit Jordan Lewis receiving a three-match suspension and forward Jesse Hogan getting a two week h

  17. A CATASTROPHIC WAY TO SAY "GOODBYE" by George on the Outer Demon supporters were expecting the team that Paul Roos has dragged from the depths of the AFL ladder over a three year period would produce something special in his final game as coach. Well they certainly did, by gifting him an 111 point losing margin ... greater than any loss in his AFL coaching career! What an absolute insult to a great icon of the game, a man who has instilled pride and hope again into the supporters, and has presented the incoming coach, Simon Goodwin with a talented group of youngsters that have

Like the previous we
  19. A bit of an anticlimax this week after the Demons' "19th nervous breakdown" in a must win game against the Blues. There will be no trip down the highway today for me (enough of those dreary rides back into civilization after a loss) but a nice surprise like last year will do me (and Roosy in his last game) fine. At this time of year, it's been usual to look forward to trading and drafting but the circumstances (limited trade bait, no high draft picks) mean that that's out of the question as well. Our Aussie cricketers? Say no more. Not even watching the EPL because it's n
  20. THE PEOPLE SPEAK by the Demonland Crew We asked the fans on Demonland to help with the final match preview for the year. The quantity might not have been great but it's the quality that counts. Thanks folks and thanks to those who contributed to this section during the year. Demon Head "Whatever the result on Sunday, Demon fans will be left wondering whether their glass is half full or half empty after season 2016. On the one hand, they have seen the improvement and development from a young side growing in stature and reaching the double figure mark in wins for the first time i
