When will Melbourne break these embarrassing records?

1443 points against is also, by a very long way, the fewest points we've conceded in a 22-game season.

The previous best was 2018, which was 1749.

Also, not including last year's shortened games, this is the first time we've gone through an entire H&A season without conceding 100 points since 1962.

Win the minor premiership

- Last time: 1964 (50 years and counting)

Win a final outside of Victoria

- Last win: Never (2 games, 2 losses)

Well we got the minor premiership, and ironically will probably have an opportunity to know off the interstate final too!

 

I think I read that we've play 87 finals at 9 venues, but only won at 4 of those venues. And of those 4 venues, the only one in current use is the MCG. So any finals wins this year will add to those numbers!

largest score kicked against (I think)

Our record of 36.22.238 v Fitzroy in 1979 (I was there :huh:) was eclipsed in 1992 by Geelong's 37.17.239 v Brisbane Bears. 

That day at VFL Park remains the highest losing margin of 190 points.  Second is 186.

l was so happy when port took off our record for grand final belting.

Cant really see someone kick 100 a year in today’s standards. It’s more a team effort that wins games

I suspect our average losing margin may well be the lowest we've ever recorded in a H&A season. It was 11.875 points per loss. Or, with a tweak of the language, our average margin in games we didn't win (ie, including the draw) was 9.4 points. 

Compare that with Essendon in 2000 where their (ahem) average losing margin was 11 points.

In 2013 anything under a ten goal loss I took as a moral victory. We have come a long way.

To win a game

Yeah, Robbie kicked one at VFL Park about R 14 1987 v StK on cold wet Waverley day. Last time I saw him play. 
Flew OS on the Monday. 
Dees won next 9 straight - until another after siren kick - on TV in UK that night. Before Sky and internet of things

Having won in Round 1 this year, we broke a decade-long record of having not won in the first week of the season.

What other records are in dire need of being broken?

...

Win the minor premiership

- Last time: 1964 (50 years and counting)

We can actually cross off the last two on this now!

Severe lack of vision from the OP not to include "Win a Prelim" or (shock horror) "Win a Premiership" in their list of embarrassing records.

Praha I hope you are adequately shamed in the next couple of weeks as we go on to do both.

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had
