Re 186 ...

https://www.facebook.com/uselessaflstats

Useless AFL Stats post some amusing stuff on Facebook. Something I didn't realise was that the "games played experience" difference in the 186pt loss to Geelong was the 2nd greatest in (UAS recorded) history going back at least to the 90s because there's a game from there in the table.  There's some mitigation there.

Scroll down a bit for the article in question ...

Beat this one!

We have never won a Friday evening encounter against any opposition whilst I've been drunk to the eyeballs!

It has never happened and needs to be rectified quick smart

Not a Melbourne record, but in response to the last post, North are getting perilously close to the top ten of all time consecutive losses. One more loss sees them equal the longest losing streak of the past 30 years (held by the rotting carcase of Fitzroy and the expansion clubs in their early days). 

Any other club and the scrutiny and criticism would be out of this world.

for the good of the AFL, I still think they should go to Tassie (they wont - but they should)

Haven't beaten Sydney at the SCG on a Sunday afternoon since round 4 2006.

Although in fairness we hardly ever play at the venue.

It's very expensive.

Thank you Adam Schneider for your terrible effort returning the footy to Jared Rivers. That 50 metre penalty is tattooed on my mind.

About as good as the time when the ball was gently thrown towards Dangerfield - then he moved his arm out of the way and proceeded to rort a 50…not that I am bitter.

We might have a chance to break this record一"No team have won a premiership from the 4th since year 2000." 

Sydney had their chance in 2006, but lost to WC by 1 point in GF.

New record - price of a ticket to see the Deez at [censored] Cricket Ground = $88.

Not if you’re an interstate member 😁

Clearly it wasn't in 2000 that the premiership was won from 4th position, so it must be some time earlier than that. I have no idea when, though.

Adelaide 1997

Simon Goodwin was playing that day.

Omen?

Another one bites the dust.

 

Apparently Melbourne was that awful in 1981 (the year I was born) that the coach at the time, Ron Barassi, wrote an apology letter to all Melbourne Demons members! 😖

I can't find it at the moment. But I know a copy of the letter exists somewhere online. 🤔

Who would ever think that 40 years later we FINALLY would win a Premiership in 2021!

I was at that game on Anzac weekend  in 2006. Very exciting.! Aaron Davey out- marked three Sydney talls in the square for an important late goal. Cam Bruce kicked the one that put us in front late,.   The ball was near their goals when the siren went.....very nerve-wracking!

That Schneider 50m penalty sickened me, that an umpire could fall for such an underhanded (excuse the pun!) trick.

Poor old Paul Johnson damaged his shoulder in an important sacrificial act, and was never the same again.

That was the only time I've ever been in the rooms after a match. I couldn't believe how exhausted the players all were.

Surely @Supermercado has this if it still exists online.

    CONSISTENCY by The Oracle

    "I think we have got a team that can win a premiership, and if we get in this year, I don't think there is a team that is going to want to play us. This year is not a write-off, I don't concede that. Not at all." — Collingwood President Jeff Browne. I love this sort of optimism from the Magpie President after his club’s eleven goal defeat at the hands of the fast rising Hawks. It’s consistent with the fighting spirit of the club that won last year’s flag.  I only wish I could say the s

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta
