    Who's going to Perth?

    Anyone know what time the boys will leave hotel to head to ground? We are staying at some hotel and would love to give them send off.

    Who's going to Perth?

    My son and I flew to Perth. Landed last night. Was stoked to see Jonesy and Melksham in foyer of hotel and they took the time for a photo. Has made my sons day, week and year. GO DEES!

    Who's going to Perth?

    I booked flights and accommodation tonight. I'm taking my 11yo son, first time I've forked out a couple grand to go interstate to see them. My son lost faith after the St Kilda game. It took me until the Sydney game to give up hope of finals. But the last 5 weeks, wow. We've been the last 2 weeks and the joy it has brought to the whole family is amazing. Big thanks to the wife for urging me to go. Go Dees!!!

    Casey Demons v Essendon VFL Preliminary Final

    J Smith looking ok, JHK is rubbish. Jeffy not pushing his case.

    Would we take $cully back?

    Only if Jonesy says it is ok!

    Changes v Hawthorn - Semi Final

    I've watched the game a couple of times, Spargo is doing a bit of work off the ball to clear a path for the ball winners. It might be just a small bump or shove here or there, but enough to prevent the opposition tackling the ball winner and help the clearance. It's small stuff but enough to keep Jeffy out.

    Dean Kent, Aaron Vandenberg and Mitch Hannan

    I thought we were done when Hannan and Kent missed easy goals in final quarter, but they were instrumental and vital in last 10 minutes.

    GAMEDAY - Round 19

    The double standards in the umpiring is a friggin joke!

    Changes vs Adelaide

    Feel a bit sorry for Jeffy, he was in the right spots a few times but others didn't give the handball. Should have had 4 goals.

    Season Highlights - VHS

    I have some old VHS tapes that I'm about to throw in the bin. If you're interested I'll happily donate - first in best dressed to any Dees member. Demon Attack - 1994 (Go Jaka's) Hotter than Hell - 1998 (Go Wiz) Dynamic Demons - 2000 (Go Neita and Wiz) Demons - 2002 (pretty lame title - Go Neita's crunch on Luke McCabe) Footy Flashbacks - Melbourne includes rare footage 1960 GF, last qtr of 1998 EF and 1994 QF against Carlton I have no VHS player so it would be illegal for me to copy them to digital format , therefore, I have to dispose of them! Go Dees!

    2017 Post Mortem

    Does anyone remember the episode of The Simpsons where Homer experiences the 5 stages of grief (Elizabeth Kubler Ross) - denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. Well, with enough alcohol - I think I experienced all of them in that in the last 24 hours. Denial - West Coast will lose and we will make the finals. Anger - the loss to Collingwood. Freo falling short. Bargaining - barracking for Adelaide and continuing to believe. Depression - we missed the finals - and my U12's domestic basketball team lost to the bottom side in the last 20 seconds!!! Shitty weekend all round, to be honest. Acceptance - Truth of the matter, we aren't ready. We've improved. Our contested ball was outstanding at times, as too was our scoring. But our defense and concentration levels needs work. The belief that we could do a "Bulldogs 2016" dissipated after we reached the top 4. Maybe it's a result of being young side in a long year or a young side who drank too much of their own bath water. Having the best 22 on the park means nothing if they aren't a cohesive unit. Our best work and wins were without our best 22 on the park. Maybe we jagged a couple wins we shouldn't have (Adelaide and West Coast) and that flattered us - regardless, it wasn't a sustainable and repetitive practice with the team we have - and that showed as the year went on. The result, we aren't ready for finals. I would say that swimming against the tide all year took it's toll - physically and mentally - Gawn's hammy, Jesse's whole year, Jack's foot, Jone's quad, Bugg's suspension in a pivotal game, friggin umpires, Tyson's kicking, Jeffy's set shots, Tmac's kicking (in defense) , being beaten by Collingwood seconds and WCE beating Adelaide by just enough to keep us out . More proof we aren't ready - or maybe fate. Let's hope that the experiences of 2017 and missing by an iota is all for the greater good. Bring on 2018. Over and out!
