The Demons started their season with a camp in Tasmania, and their season with a thumping loss to West Coast Round 1, 1991, but went on to set three of their top five all-time highest scores yet still almost missed the finals.

In a year when at various times Darren Bennett, Darren Cuthbertson and Allen Jakovich were putting opposition defenders to the sword it was remarkable that the first round produced the side's lowest score of the modern era. True to form the Demons backed up the next week with a massive win over a hapless Fitzroy, with Bennett kicking 8.

Cuthbertson, meanwhile, was the toast of the town for three weeks in late April and early May when he snagged 7, 7 and 5 goals in a row in just his fourth match on. He would battle for just six more goals from ten appearances across the rest of the year.

Meanwhile in the reserves an enigmatic young forward was dominating. After an inauspicious debut in the Round 1 Subiaco debacle Allen Jakovich returned for a Round 10 loss in Adelaide. Dropped again after just one goal he returned in Round 14 and would go on to kick 71 goals for the season - winning both the senior and reserves goalkicking. His second half of the home and away season included hauls of 11, two 8's and two 6's.

Despite the heroics of Jakovich the Demons were outside the 8, and with a game extra played, as late as Round 22. However a tough win against Footscray in Round 23 ensured that with a bye in the last round they would make the finals no matter what other results were.

Jakovich's run continued in the finals where he snared 8 against Essendon and he backed up with another four in a losing effort against West Coast the next week.

All the while Jim Stynes was dominating in the ruck on his way to deserved Brownlow Medal favouritism and a big win on the night.

The reserves lost their second consecutive grand final.

The club made a loss of $351,826 for the year.
