When will Melbourne break these embarrassing records?

On the original list winning at Skilled wasn't mentioned, but I think this really should count as knocking off two hoodoos. That was just awesome.

About half way down there is an entry "Win in Geelong".

Beat St Kilda at Etihad a week after beating the Pies on QB and that is four of the above...

Some are more meaningful than others though.

Beating Geelong down at Mordor would be huge, and of course beating Hawthorn, but Geelong are on a precipice - I would love to push them over...

Did we push them over?

Probably not. But we kicked them in the nuts in front of people that like them - so that'll have to do...

Geez that list would be so much more impressive if we had beaten St Kilda last week. Would have wiped off the Saints and Etihad like we wiped off Geelong in Geelong today.

and back to back wins too... would have been nice.

Guess we will just have to smash Meth Coke up in Darwin in 2 weeks.

lol here is one for the good record list:

"Although the result was a shock, the omens were bad for the Cats leading into the game. Melbourne has not lost when a player on the opposing team is recording his 300th game – having defeated teams including Leigh Matthews, Luke Power and Paul Salmon. The Cats have not won any of their three games when a player has celebrated 300 games."

Could we add "beat a team coached by a Whinge Twin"?

Beating the other one would feel just as good.

Smashing teams is a fair wish for all demon fans, but happy to settle for playing footy like we did against the Cats. Keep doing what we did on Sunday and wins will come. However, with our developing team there will be ups and downs, Seeing the group of talented young kids come through is going to be exciting and a reward for the disappointment of the last 10 years.

How long since we actually won two (or for that matter three) on the trot??

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?

I'm just wondering the last time we won a game when we were favourites. Is that another embarrassing record that needs to be broken?

Granted we wouldn't be favourites too often, but anyone know when was the last time?

    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

    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
