 Predicting Tommy Mac to  kick 5 including the winner in the last 30 seconds would have got you carted  off in a white coat this morning.

How true. But how Sweet it was

We hung tough. Huge, huge result.

We are a top 4 team. I have been following this team for 39 years and we have more talent now than I have ever seen.

i was ther tonight as a perthite. Goddamn those supporters know zero about footy.

Go you Mighty Demons!

Anyone think Viney will get a week?

I thought that initially, but ball was in play and I think he had eyes on it. But who knows with this MRP.

He might miss next week through injury, but not suspension.

He was contesting the ball and it was an accident. Dale Thomas wasn't suspended for doing the same thing.

SHOULD not but probably will - MRP after all need to send a message, and don't really know what that message is  

Had his eyes on the ball in a marking contest clash - no case to answer. 

That shouldn't of even been a free kick. He collected him on the chest in a fair attack on the ball. Was another absolutely ridiculous decision by the umpires on the night.

So that means yes he'll probably get a week from the MRP.

What tonights game shows we never give up, every team that plays as from now on will never think they have beaten us until the game is over, we can win from anywhere

I've watched the Viney/Hurn incident a number of times and I'm afraid he might cop a week or 2. His eyes were on the ball but I think the fact that he jumped and got air and then hit Hurn's head hard with his hip will cost him. Don't think a pirouette will save him this time.

Surely not, he was clearly going for the ball.

The 2nd edition of tomorrows h/sun. the first one had Grundys mark but Tommy's performance was better. Makes me nervous when media people talk about us potentially being a contender. But we are playing pretty good footy. Win next week and it will be on.

Can't even discuss the actual game yet, only how the win felt.

I was at the ground. I brought a ticket through Ticketmaster and some how ended up sitting in an Eagles reserved seating section. I literally could not see another Melbourne supporter. I was by myself. I cheered everything we did and got stared at, people whispered about me, one woman asked her husband if they could move away. I wasn't badly behaved. I was just passionate.

Because those Eagles supporters they don't understand - I fell in love with this footy club in 1987. I was sitting with my old man on the half forward flank when Jimmy ran over the mark and Buckenara kicked the goal in the Prelim. I've sat through horrible horrible performances - multiple 100 point floggings at the G (just 4 years ago). I'd do it all again for that win, and the effort and energy we showed to drag ourselves over the line in that last quarter.

When Tommy Mac kicked the last goal I went bananas. And then when the siren went I went absolutely ballistic. You know those sad people at sporting events going nuts who you think 'calm down mate, maybe you need more going on in your life'? - that was me!

Im pretty sure I looked like the slow mo of Stevie J when he kicked the sealer a couple of weeks back - but in real time.

It was ugly. I don't care. That was an absolute delight.

I love this footy club, and I love that I at least have a place on the internet to share something like this with people who get it.

Go The Dees. I believe. 

Respect brother

With 2.25 to go Viney shrugs a yeo tackle in close like an absolute beast. 

And I was worried he is a bit small when I met him, before he had played a game for us. 

Well I know what is not small about him, his heart, it must be the size of an elephant's.

Inspirational player, fearless like his dad. 

Epitomises our new toughness.

TMac goal. On McGovern. One of the most brutish and hard to beat KP players in the comp.

If his eye was on the ball that should save him, collisions happen in footy if he goes for that it's time to burn down afl house 

The commentators even said, "he had had to go for the contest" none of them seemed to think it was a malicious act just one of desperation. Could be down to the medical report again, but really that shouldn't be stamped out of the game. It was a game defining contest between the captains. 

If you're not allowed to go for it with your sole focus the ball then when can you?

Couldn't really have done any more. TMac still too good.

Fair play to McGovern, not much more he could have done. Can't say the same about the three other West Coast players standing in the goal square watching. Reckon Tommy was stood up in the tackle long enough for at least one of them to arrive and snuff it completely.

Goodwin in his presser hinted that Hogan will be back in a fortnight, in fact it even sounds like he's a tiny chance to play against Sydney.

Nothing in it but two players going for the ball. But Viney plays for Melbourne and will therefore get 2 weeks.

I get that but they also don't like the jumping and making contact with the head. Might come down to the medical report from the Eagles and they might be [censored] at the result.

They don't like you leaving the ground to bump when the player has the ball. 

Viney jumped when the ball was in the air to get it. 

Should come to nothing. 

 

So 5 weeks.

T Mac is a phenomenal full forward. He's overtaken Jesse. I can't wait until they're in the 50 together. Will be raining demon goals.

Don't wanna be that cynical guy but it's hard not to. I'll be surprised if Viney gets through the weekend without being 'sighted'

Seriously, this win was so good it made up for Fremantle, Hawthorn & North and I wasn't even at the game. Adelaide win was massive and surprising, but this one was something else. I am so excited.

What a great gutsy win. What a fantastic atmosphere in the ground when we hit the front. I am now even looking forward to the red eye flight home. Go Dees

One thing I've noticed is that TMac has improved his kicking. 

What a goal.

Helped by the fact he only had eyes for the ball, and Hurn was in mid air as well. So no. You're flat out wrong.

7 weeks.
