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.

In MFCSS world, then, you were both impressively 'out there'!

That was a "Holy Sheet" moment for me, but not a "we are gunna win a flag" moment, because I though the Tiggers were done at that point.

You were more brave than I.

they certainly weren't done at that point....maybe later in the season.....and they threw everything at us

but it was the way we played....the pressure.....the decision making......the structure.....the skills given the conditions

i started to dream ... of great things

So did I.

But that was not the moment when I thought we were the real deal.

Yep that started it for me and then when we dismantled the Dogs and ran over the Lions in successive weeks I thought we were clearly the best team in the comp it was just a matter of us not falling in a heap as we had been want to do through our history.

It felt like a changing of the guard though. Actually I'm rewatching the 2nd half of this match now (I watched the 1st half the other night). Such joy especially because the Tigers looked on top early, their supporters were actually stunned into silence at what they were witnessing. It was beautiful.

It’s also 61 years since we won back to back flags. Frankly, it’s been a long time and I’m sick and tired of waiting.

We've been waiting 65 years for a three-peat! It was only 16 years between our last two.

:lol:

I thought we were the real deal after we beat Brisbane in the middle of the season. Mind you, doubts crept in after GWS, Collingwood, Hawthorn etc…

I wouldn't mind a re-boot of this whole topic to remind us what embarrassing records we still hold. We've got rid of the most embarrassing - the 57 years since the last Premiership - but what else is there? Two immediately come to my mind, neither of which I can see changing in the foreseeable future:

  • largest losing margin in V/AFL history (was it 190 points against Fitzroy...is that right?)
  • having no-one kick 100 goals in a season

What else is left?

This isn’t a record that needs breaking but something I’d love to see us set is largest winning margins on QB vs Pies. 

Also what’s the record for largest losing margin for the Cats at KP, would love for us to take hold of that one.

You can cross this off the list. 

Correct you are . Our 2021 game was originally scheduled on a Saturday, but changed to a Sunday at the very last minute.

I've adjusted our embarrassing record to:

Have never beaten Gold Coast on a Saturday night which is the timeslot we have them in this year.

    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
