Anyone else feeling sick in the guts

Recommended Posts

Having been a Demons supporter since switching from Carlton under peer pressure from taunting school mates in 1964. I have been living with hope every year that the next year will be the one.

50+ years on and it hasn't changed, however this upcoming season has me feeling more than ever that we can take the next step and really give it a good shake, but I am torn between putting all my emotional energy into a team that has ripped my heart out,or giving it another shot. I guess it's nature's way of  warning my body.

One thing is for certain doc, we’ll finish above that rabble Carlton.

Even though I didn’t think it at the time, it’s possible that 2017 is the year we had to have.

A finals birth is absolutely there for us in 2018. And not a mere position in the 8, we now have the list, the coaching group and the experience to make an impact.

In short, it’s ours to stuff up this year. For some reason, I don’t think we will - I definitely see us playing finals for the first time since 2006.

I hear what you are saying Brian, but there's no way in the world I could keep my emotions in check, even if I wanted to.  Let  it rip Demons!

Yes, but the Hurricanes inept showing yesterday is to blame.

The competition is getting closer every year now the the GWS and Goal Coast concessions are drying up.

We could finish as high as 3rd or as low as 14th, our season won't come down to games or even quarters, it will come down to moments.

Bookmark it.

I'm feeling it too.  Have been thinking there is huge pressure on the team to make finals this year.  As much as I think they are primed and ready to make the next step, the last few years and watching other teams like Carlton and Collinwood and North that were also said to be building over the past decade, but then only falter into mediocrity, tells me it's no certainty.

I'm really looking for this Melbourne team to mature into something solid and dominant beyond MFC teams of the 90s and put a consistent season from start to finish, stitching up a top four position and setting it's self up for a realistic crack at the big prize, rather than scrapping out the last six rounds just to scrape into the top 8.

Will come down to a bit of good discipline  and luck with injuries, if we had those things in our favor last year I still believe we would have been pushing hard for the top 4, so top 8 or epic failure this year, I am slightly reluctant to embrace the hype that loss to Collingwood is still in the back of the mind, but saying that the Collingwood loss is not the reason we missed finals was a combination of things the loss to freo, nth x2 and not burying Brisbane when we had the chance, I just hope the players are hurting as much as us supporters if they are I don’t think they will let it slip this time

Get the mental issues sorted, and this list will smack the bejeezus out of the competition.

 

So, yeah, can't see us winning the big one.

At my school in East Burwood we had a rule. Pick your team by Grade 2. No changes allowed after. But that was 1962.

I'm really looking forward to the next few seasons, this one can't come soon enough.

We finally have a team to support that's in the game.

It's been a long time coming, embrace it, don't fear it...

Spot on rjay, win lose or draw we have a team that can compete with the best, I firmly believe we will play finals this year given a reasonable run of injuries. Even if we don't I am confident we will win more than we lose.

We have come a long way since the days where the only thing to be decided was the size of the loss.

Heads up guys this season is going to be fun.

Sadly I agree dc.

MFC supporters are nothing if not resilient.

Fire up everyone!

Leicester, Cubs, Astros, Cronulla, Bulldogs, Richmond, Philly Eagles... the more these drought-breaking outsiders win championships, the less confident I am that Melbourne will break its drought.
