    Chris Judd thinks we celebrated too hard.

    Having lived through the euphoria of '87 (and having documented it in various other posts over the years), I still reckon those six weeks and the two finals are the greatest sustained football excitement I have ever experienced. Having said that, the sheer relief, joy and subsequent collective celebration following the siren on Sunday comes a pretty close second. Interestingly, in '87 there was always no tomorrow, with one mistake bursting the dream - and as we know the dream was finally shattered on that day out at Waverley. Today however, there is a "tomorrow" and if Judd's point is that we have gone too hard and got ahead of ourselves, then I think he forgets that we still have one more game before the big stuff starts. We could very easily stuff up on Sunday against GWS, (very MFC!!) but does it really matter? Yes, we are still in with a mathematical chance for top four but does it really matter? Unlike '87, at this moment, I sense that our boys fear no one - they will be happy to play anyone in the 8, anywhere, anytime. The celebrations have been magnificent! As someone has posted earlier, unless you have lived it Mr Judd, you can never have the last 12 years explained to you. At the very least, if we have a downer against GWS - so be it. We are still in it and I am confident that in September we will be having a real crack! How long will it last? 1 week? 2 weeks? Dare to dream everyone! Go Dees. Sorry Mr Judd, I have been inspired by the last 48 hours - the spirit of not only the Dees faithful, but the football world as well. Perhaps there is message for Gill and Hocking as well. Leave the game alone!!

    Flower, then daylight to Jackovic, The Whizz, then daylight to Lyon, Schwarz, Jimmy, Robbo over the last 60 years for me.

    The Incredible Hulk - Jesse Hogan

    Yep, Down on form, and probably sore.......but - he draws a key defender each week, can have a run in the midfiield, and I thought his sublime hanging over the top handball to Tracc with 30 seconds to go was pretty handy!!

    The Hawkins - Fritsch one is symptomatic of a major blight on the game. Once a maggot has paid a free it seems OK for some players to grind a head into the ground, double jumper punch the chest or other physical afterthoughts against the player penalised (or in Fritsch’s case the recipient)of the decision made. Classic Hawkins behaviour.

    Round 17 Non MFC Games

    You can slice it, dice it, boil it, fry it - no matter what spin or half price tickets you put on it - this is just an ordinary game of footy. Off to read my book and mentally prepare for tomorrow afternoon.

    Round 17 Non MFC Games

    As much as I loathe Selwood - Pannell calls “play on” for the spear tackle. Overruled! This clown and his 2 50 metre penalties cost us the 4 points against St Kilda. Don’t worry about ladder position this costs us.

    Pannell already influential.

    Must say, what a fantastic conversation between 3 really interesting and different players. If only the mainstream “boys club” could be like this. Healy doing a brilliant job engaging all panelists in an insightful way. Big tick Fox Footy.

    Not sure about the lack of love for Jones. We absolutely smashed them tonight - everywhere on the ground. It’s just we didn’t convert.

    Dom just cannot find a target, by hand by foot or scrum.
