After a disappointing 1992 campaign which saw a five year finals streak snapped John Northey left for Richmond and was replaced with ex-Richmond premiership player Neale Balme who had been coaching in the SANFL. He beat out contenders including then Essendon Reserves coach Denis Pagan.

In a tight final ladder the Demons finished 10th, two games out of the finals but only percentage above the 11th and 12th placed teams. The three teams who finished on ten wins for the season then had a lead of six games over the next placed side.

The Reserves won Melbourne's 12th and last premiership in the grade.

At the end of the year the Demons delisted Darren Bennett, Shane Burgmann, Darren Cuthbertson, Brett Evans, Andy Goodwin, Greg Healy, Brett Jeffrey, Rod Keogh, Mathew Mackay, Damon Munt, Michael Pickering, Scott Simister, Steven Stretch and David Taylor.

A purported seven year, $2 million sponsorship deal signed with Tooheys at the end of the year proved controversial as the AFL was sponsored by their rivals Carlton and United.
