Run home to Finals - 2018

Recommended Posts

Well you can lock Hawthorn in for another finals spot. Such an easy run home.  

Geelong as usual with two gifts in the final two rounds - at home to Freo and  Gold Coast.

The AFL really love to look after the Cats and Hawks.  Sickening.

Hmmm.

Chokes.

The MFC

Hmmmm

🤔

I know but can't we just dream of playing in September for once instead of just assuming the absolute worst is going to happen (again)!?

The Swans suddenly looking vulnerable. 

And we play them in round 21...  the stakes will be huge.

Its well overdue, a serious ravalry/hatred between Melbourne and Sydney

Potential that has just sat here, both clubs have never really pursued it hard, maybe we were just not strong enough before. 

Everything else between Melbourne and Sydney is dead serious

Step up Demons. Create another Marquee game. 

Use our name

The obvious answer is YES.

However the MFC has such a long tradition of failure it is very difficult to not expect the worst.

Sad? Yes but understandable.

I was 17 when I saw us win our Grand Final in 1964.

I didn't think I'd reach 71 without us winning another!

The EH Holden had just been released along with “A Hard Day’s Night”

and some people call me impatient for some real success

We can tell.

Me? I was a spritely teen the last time the dees played finals. Now I'm staring down the barrel of 30 and I still hold that Chopper Carroll takedown on Fraser Gherig as my most loved footy moment.

Same same. Was with the cheer squad in "T" section and lost my voice for quite a while after the match. Stayed at the G overnight and got home late Sunday.

30 was a good year. They went fast after 30 though, be ready. 

The only constant each year has been the failing of the MFC, with some different excuse!!!! :)

You could stay inside the stadium back then or did they shunt you into the carpark?

my dad and his mates would often end up at one of the players houses after a GF and literally go from house to house for about 5 days!

I have us playing the Hawks (6v7) if we can snag one against Geelong (And of course beat WB/GCS/ADEL/GWS)

Can't wait to get one back against that mullet haired Stratton [censored].

Ben McEvoy out for at six weeks with a fractured cheek bone. Won’t help the Hawks chances.

I remember 2000.....

Queue tickets, banter, 4.00am BBQs at the 'G

Trying to avoid the Ch 7 camera after pulling a sickie

Will Brucey get up?

Is the Whiz okay? 

Can Stevie Powell kick straight...

Then the [censored] game

I think we are roughly the same age. To me your not being impatient it is just the reality.
