Lynden Dunn 150 games

Recommended Posts

Wanted to make a thread for this, huge achievement during tough period at the club and hands down champion and good bloke.

Works tirelessly in the back half and deserves a pat on the back

Wel done Lynden.

I will be giving this Man a standing ovation tomorrow. Much deserved, looking forward to seeing him run out in the red and blue as our VC with his son.

Let's get the win for him!!!

I remember watching Dunn and Bate when they had both played only a handful of games. Neither came on as I thought they would at the time but Dunn has certainly stuck in there and become a good solid player.

Congrats to him for his hard work.

First player ever to not leave MFC as a free agent. Loyal and dedicated. Always would be one of the first selected each week.

Let's hope the boys play with their heart and soul for Lyndenn as he always does for them and get the win

Never thought he'd get to 150, great clubman.

His consistency and dedication to improve his game has been first class during a period of absolute horror.

Much admiration for the dunny brush.

Deserves a spell from the back half at some point in my opinion, even if just a few games to freshen him up. Couldn't do any worse than the Hulk's last game or Dawes and might even kick a couple.

My bro and I agreed when he ran out for his 100th in that belting against Port that he was the worst 100 gamer ever. The turnaround has been stunning.

All credit to him for putting in the hard work prior to and during season 2014 and turning his career around.

It was on the line and he did the right thing.

Sure 2015 hasn't been as good for him personally but I look forward to this game.

Wel done Lynden.

Yep, well done Lynden, never would have thought he would still be on the list just a few years ago.

But....champion??? Really?!

Id give him good to very good at times, and yes a good bloke I agree with!

I really enjoyed reading the interview with Lynden. Seems like a respectful, grounded guy and hard to believe he is only 28. Feels like he has been around for a lot longer. I wish him all the best for his 150th game and many more wins to come.

What a career turnaround! Went from a struggling utility with a dodgy moustache to being a clean shaven vice captain. Congratulations to Dunny on 150 games! Could be a future 250 gamer for the Dees if he continues playing well in defence.

Watched his first game as a skinny runt of a forward running around like a chicken with his head cut off against the Dockers at the MCG under Danners. Never thought he'd make it. He still kind of hasn't.

Still, he's played 150 more games of footy than me, so...congrats on that one.

Congrats, Lynden. Hopefully you put in a better performance this week. We're gonna need it without Garland. But labelling him a champion is laughable and really shows you up, Olisik.

Very happy for the Club Dunny! Came to the Club as an under-age recruit, and has hung in there through thick and thin. Could never describe him as a "star". But, he's given his all for the team, and has finally found his niche down back, and has been rewarded for his effort and leadership with the VC.

Congratulations on your 150th, Dunny! Just hope you can continue to provide great service, and hang in there long enough to finally play Finals!

Well done Lynden. I just love those big goals you kicked when you played forward. Always a chance from 50 out.

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z

    CROWDOWN by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons open their 2020 season account with a "home" game against the Adelaide Crows at Casey Fields. It’s been more than 5 and half agonising months for the team and supporters who are eager to atone for the disappointing 2019 season which saw the Dees go from Preliminary Finalist to 2nd bottom on the ladder. The preseason campaign has been a hard slog with the addition of respected High Performance Manager Darren Burgess. We caught a glimpse of the gut busting sessions in the Melbourne

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt
