Delusional demon 82

Revenge is a dish best served cold ....Wish list for season 2018

Recommended Posts

Ok now that we’re in the back end of January , the disarster of round 23 2017 and associated torture is becoming more and more distant each week. Rather than lamenting and self loathing in past failures , like a true demon supporter , I thought best to channel the vitriol to thinking of endeavours that the football club  (or more accurately the players and football department) can now control , that being ....  how they respond in 2018. As supporters we are at the mercy of the how the players and coaches choose to respond , apart from coughing up our hard earned and signing on again in 2018. Accordingly we can only dare to dream and  I’m interest to hear everyone’s wish list to avenge in 2018 

So apart from making finals, clarry winning the Brownlow or the dees doing a bulldogs or Richmond in September  I thought of my top 3 . 

1. Dees finally beat north in Rd 3 with a goal after the siren , brad Scott looses his [censored] in the box , despite north again getting a helping hand from the umps. Dees go 3-0

2. Queens birthday , the dees smash collingwood by 12 goals adding to a 4 game loosing streak for the pies. Bucks under severe pressure again and Taylor Adams is added to the jack viney made me cry thread 

3. A red hot Melbourne side anilhilate west coast by 80 points in rd 22 severely eroding their % and ending their finals aspirations. 

Go dees !

i'll go:

- we win every match on the way to a glorious undefeated season and first run of seven premierships in a row
- we don't just beat north in round 3, we absolutely destroy them - 100+ points please
- we win every match by a minimum of four goals, meaning no mfcss in the final quarter all year

You're kidding yourself DA.  We could be 10 goals up and the usuals will still find something to complain about.

My wishlist is simple - finals.  Anything less and it's a failed season.

It's now or never, really.  The way our list has been built and developed over the last 4 years suggests that finals is the next step.  Granted, it should have been what happened last year but we missed the boat and I'm in no doubt that the players will be using that as a driving force for this year - they won't want to go through that ever again.

I know some will demand more than just finals, and that's okay too, but I think breaking our finals drought and putting to bed further demons (pardon the pun) from our past (that some of our supporter base still can't let go of) will play a massive role in the success we can enjoy in the years to come.

A ten goal plus haul from someone, probably Hogan. It's been a long time since we've had a single player kick a swag of goals in a game.

Only four goals up in the last quarter and I’m staring at probable defeat. The excellent blog ‘Every Day is Sunday’ has a historical number that we have to be ahead by for defeat to be definitely averted. He calls it the Bernie Massey line, no that’s not it, the David Cordner line, nup, the Ragnar Lothbrok line? Whatever it is called and however many it is, 24 points isnt enough for a MFCSS remission. Seven goals perhaps?

To breeze by the Pies claiming a 95pt QB win claiming Buckley’s (coaching) scalp in the process and after a very public media breakdown (eddy) Fat Head fall in his sword.

I'm with you. Belting the Dawks from the first bounce to the final siren!

Perhaps also for Lever to restrict Walker to 0 goals. In Adelaide.

And then for him to fist pump the air on the final siren, followed by belting out the Grand Old Flag with gusto in the sheds following the win on national tv.

Thanks Skuit - that’s it, the Chris Sullivan line. 7 goals plus.

As for revenge I wouldn’t be upset if Melbourne beat GWS in the GF with unfashionable Cam Pedersen breaking a Tom Scully tackle to kick the winning goal.

There is great literary, philosophic and extremely esoteric meaning in these words, and these come from a long way back in a time when most things were quite straight forward, including umpiring, Well said, Dedogtor.

Would be good. I'd rather watch 'The Ghan' than some of our performances in the NT.
