I'm sailing on the river of dreams, somewhere between Nirvana & Ecstacy, anticipating a great Dees victory!

Meanwhile .... Jack Trengove has brought his own footy today, he's up to 13 possessions already, and has added a goal, 21 minutes into Q1. @melbournefc

I thought we all went skiing. go dees

Well I did all my literal sailing weeks ago, and I'm too uncreative to come up with figurative sailing metaphors, so I'm on solid ground and very excited for this game. I can't remember the last time we were so overwhelmingly stronger than the opposition, this is a great opportunity to really add confidence and really get some momentum going. Can't wait!

I'm in San Francisco and will be heading to bed happy tonight after we smash Essundone.  No chance we lose this.

Just as Sailing Demon arrives back on terra firma. Melbourne shortest priced odds for the round. Bizzaro world.

7.13.55 to 10.3.63 with daniher booting 5 straight, including 3 from outside 50. i can just see it happening and it scares the bejesus out of me.

Agree,

he is such a spider that bloke,but hopefully they have learnt from last year and can interrupt his run.

I would like to see Tom Mc (legally) push Daniher around a bit in the first 10 minutes. 

Firstly, for having the temerity to kick so well in the last game and secondly to show him who is boss for the next 10 years!

And a little help from Tom's friends to accidently bump into him a few times early on, won't go astray! 

That is what the Hawks do - take no prisoners.

Edit:   Hope it rains on their silly 'parade'.

Just give them a belting, Dees.  No mucking around.  No allowing them the first clearance and a frustrating first goal to a nobody like Orazio Fantasia.  

Just get in there, push them around and belt the living suitcase out of them so we can go 2-0 and go in with confidence against those soft Shinboners in Round 3.

Dees by 55.

Well, you know they're going to try the same thing with Hogan. But probably not "legally".

And Watts. And Brayshaw, Oliver, Harmes.

The leopard doesn't change its spots. Worsfold was a thug of old and it's their only chance of getting over us.

Give 'em a taste of their own medicine. (And then bury them.)

Big day for our footy club - as much as Essendon will make this all about them and their past / future we need to take the next big step in our own rebuild and win 2 games in a row AND win well against a depleted opposition with all of our players contributing evenly with a stack of goals and highlights so I can watch the replay 4 times in the next week like I did with the Rd 1 win. Go Dees.

I will feel more nervous come game time. In the past melbourne havent been able to cope being the favourites. Today we are. I feared last year Daniher would finally kick straight and he did. But I feel this year we are a different team and obviously we are with the new players. 

It would just be a massive disaster if we drop todays game after our good win last week. Plus could you just imagine the hysteria amongst the essenscum fans. They would be feeling confident today that they have a chance. 

If the right melbourne shows up we should be sitting pretty at 3/4 time and enjoy the last quarter. We need to thrash them today.

If we gift them the win by 8 points, I blame you.

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane. Were th

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
