When will Melbourne break these embarrassing records?

We’re on fox sorts. Still not over and want to keep watching and reliving it. I’m exhausted but can’t even phantom sleep. Never seen my dad (or my uncle for that matter.)

He said he never once thought that I was ever, “less devoted” as my brothers being a girl. He told me how happy he was there to share it with him. This has been one of the closest moments ever for us. Mum would have been proud.

Thank you so much boys. Love you so much 🥰

I hope the next premiership is not 57 years away because I wont live to see it.

I have had the great pleasure to see 7 flags in the time I have followed the team from 1952 and this team is not just good but great and hopefully they will do what the Melbourne teams of the 1950's and 1960's did to play in the finals for 11 years from 1954 to 1964 and win multiple premierships.

It was fitting that they won on the ground were in 2018 their premiership hopes were dashed.

Don't worry next year isn't far away

If you think I wasn't taking the P!ss, you missed my point.

Yesterday and even today are some of the most enjoyable moments I can remember barracking for the dees.

Hoping we win a premiership at the G but that one in Perth was a drought breaker for us members and fans.The best game I have seen in my life.

We haven't won one at the G but we will.

So happy to be a Melbourne supporter at the moment.

So I haven't fact checked this, but happy to stand corrected if I have been misled... apparently no premiership team in VFL/AFL history has ever played a single game together after they have won the premiership.  Could we be the first?

love that we've finally crept off 12 flags up to 13.. only a few more and we will be back to the top of the tree.. THEN i will get a MFC neck tattoo. well, maybe not a neck tattoo.. but i'll work out something.

That 13 truly was an unlucky number for us. But it’s done now

3.9 million* people watched the game on TV. Surely that's the biggest audience Melboure has ever played in front of.

*Excluding the billions of overseas viewers that the AFL used to claim would watch the Grand Final because it was being shown in markets with total population in the billions, but with a likely viewing audience of, perhaps, thousands.

This may be in one of the other 3.2 million threads started on Demonland in the last 36 hours, but is our total winning margin of 190 in the three finals a VFL/AFL record?

Here's a random one... the Dee's have never lost a game while I have been in WA....

Year 2000 was in WA last round of H&A (WCE in Perth - Bluey McKennas final game) through to the prelim... I flew back to Melbourne for the Gf!!! 

2021 was in WA from the final H&A game and Flew from Broome to Perth for the GF (watched the Prelim in Derby after doing the Gibb River Road)

Nice to not be on these lists.

It's a shame the Suns are there (maybe they can have a late-season win when we're 3 or 4 games clear on top): a '9' with 'Geelong' next to it, in about 2024, will be nice...

Interested to know at what stage of the season did everyone "know" that we were the real deal, and were a serious shot at a flag.

Would have to go back through my own history, but I reckon I had us as premiership favorites maybe 6 rounds prior to end of regular season.

As a 40+ year negative nancy, that was a bloody good feeling.

    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
