The 2016 Grand Final


DemonOX

Recommended Posts

I just want to wish Zak Jones all the best in this weekends GF. 

He is the first of the Jones boys to make to a GF. 

in saying that I am tipping the Bulldogs. 

Would like to see them win it after such a long drought. 

Next on the list to win it would be the Demons.

All the hype about the Bulldogs this week has been insane, it could all end in tears very quickly.

Agreed, they may [play the game before it starts, bit like us in 2000, we looked so good up to the GF and then we just went to pieces.

Hope the Bulies win and then we win the next three like we did in 55, 56 and 57.

Great to see young Jones an important part of the Swans defence. He is a different cat that way he goes about it.

I want the Dogs to win. No question.

I think the Dogs are paving a way for our own set of youngsters. Effort is superior to top draft picks such as the Giants received.

If the Dee's can develop a similar desire to 'do it for their mates' I reckon We'll be in for a few solid years.

I should be happy for the Doggies supporters after their massive drought but I'm not. It's kind of like seeing your mate win tattslotto. Whilst it's fantastic for your mate, what benefit do you actually get out of it? 

I hope Buddy kicks a goal after the siren to win the game as a result of a dubious free kick.

I could've sworn they won the flag last week.

I've never seen such elation and excitement after a game that wasn't a grand final.

I think the Swans are taking a huge risk with McVeigh, could come unstuck for them. Maybe he will pull out before the game.

Along with Mills they could lose this at the selection table.

I guess we will see how it pans out on the day...

Great article on the Jones brothers on the Fox Footy page:

Captain Courageous, Nathan you are a class act and hopefully your day will come soon too.

BA,  I vaguely recall you having a wager on the dogs to be premiers. Is that correct/still on? 

It was correct mate but not it's not still on, I had :

Coleman : Kennedy @ $2.75

RS : Oliver @ $10

Brownlow : Danger @ $9

Flag : Dogs @ $12.50

x $10 outlay = $30,937

 

Would of been nice.

Hindsight is a wonderful thing....

Next year I will take a few each way and mix it up. Need to have at least 3 options for the flag.

BA, I think all clubs have the same salary cap next year. Lions, Suns, Swans and Giants are just left with the academy zones in which is just as much and if not more of an unfair advantage. 

Ok great, was thinking Swans COLA was just about wrapped up but was under the impression Suns and Giants has a couple of years left to run on theirs. Hopefully Brisbane's doesn't go back up.

I think Sydney's is gone (there's probably still contracts in there that use it) but a few years to go for Suns and GWS.

I recon the doggies played their grand final last week.

Be so hard to muster up that kind of desire again.

That said,who knows what their coach has put into their heads.

I really hope they win and it is a game that equals that of last week.

That game showed me how far our team has got to go to rival that kind of determination.

I don't think you can compare this GF with 2000. That Bombers side was absolutely unstoppable and had the greatest season in history.

The difference between the Dogs and Swans quality is a lot smaller than the Dees and Bombers of 2000.

I thought the dogs played their GF, 3 weeks ago, then 2 weeks ago, then last week....

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    POSTGAME: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    Once again inaccuracy and inefficiency going inside 50 rears it's ugly head as the Demons suffered their second loss on the trot and their fourth loss in five games as they go down to the Pies by 38 points on Kings Birthday at the MCG.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    It's Game Day and the Demons are once again faced with a classic 8 point game against a traditional rival on King's Birthday at the MCG. A famous victory will see them reclaim a place in the Top 8 whereas a loss will be another blow for their finals credentials.

    BOILED LOLLIES by The Oracle

    In the space of a month Melbourne has gone from chocolates to boiled lollies in terms of its standing as a candidate for the AFL premiership.  The club faces its moment of truth against a badly bruised up Collingwood at the MCG. A win will give it some respite but even then, it won’t be regarded particularly well being against an opponent carrying the burden of an injured playing list. A loss would be a disaster. The Demons have gone from a six/two win/loss ratio and a strong percentag

    CLEAN HANDS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons headed into town and up Sydney Road to take on the lowly Coburg Lions who have been perennial VFL easy beats and sitting on one win for the season. Last year, Casey beat them in a practice match when resting their AFL listed players. That’s how bad they were. Nobody respected them on Saturday and clearly not the Demons who came to the game with 22 players (ten MFC), but whether they came out to play is another matter because for the most part, their intensity was lacking an
