Up bright and early and can see Etihad (or whatever it's called now) from our hotel. Wandered down to the Woolshed last night for some over priced craft beer (don't they sell VB in the city anymore) but will go there again today anyway.

I think Bulldogs are about 3 months early as they are going to need an effort of marvel proportions to win this one.

Dee's by 15... Goals.

Jonesey will tear it up.

Gee Josh, everything read well until you mentioned the “green death” and beer in the same sentence!  If you’re looking for a decent beer after the game try Penny Blue off Little Bourke Street.  You will be spoilt for choice mate.

Enjoy the game and Nate’s 250th.

There was a time not so long ago that if you woke up on the morning of a game and your opponent for the day had 13 premiership players, two days extra break and the venue was Etihad Stadium, you would sort of freak out in the expectation of another flogging.

Those days are gone.

Good luck to Nathan Jones - he’s like a good wine that gets better with age and side by side with Jack Viney, should lead the Demons home to victory in his 250th game.

I follow 3 teams; Melbourne Victory, The Australian Cricket Team (with some reservation these days) and the mighty, mighty Dees.  2 of those teams I have come to expect to come out and win most games they play, the other team has messed with my mind for 54 years and leaves me wondering WTF more often than not.  Please boys, keep this wonderful euphoric feeling going for another 16 weeks or so.

My son and I are off to the game today having not been able to get to the last few.  We are fizzing at the bung for another big win by our boys in Red and Blue.

Go Dees!!!

Ugh. Today I’m attending a 3rd birthday party with the family. Starts at 1.00. Goes for 3 hours. It’s at a kids play centre. 

Thankfully the Dad is a Dogs fan. I’m hoping we can hatch a plan to somehow watch the game. Then again, wouldn’t want to spoil his kids’ birthday party by souring his mood! 

Sigh, looks like DLand game Day thread followed by replay tonight again.

You don’t look well mate. You may well be coming down with something. It just wouldn’t be right to potentially cross-infect young children. Best to just stay home.

I expect the pups to come out yapping and snapping at our heels, but I can’t see their hyper-activity lasting for an extended period.  We look to have their measure in most areas, and on form this year, they seem to have few players who are likely to inflict a heap of pain (even if they do get off the leash, which is doubtful because imo we are too disciplined to allow that to happen).  Dee’s by around 7 goals I reckon, and the puppies again licking their wounds in the dog-house.

ps.  In the unlikely event that we do come out ‘flat’ after the Alice and the short break, I’m very confident that our boys will do whatever it takes to find another gear for the Jonesy. That’s what good teams do, and we are a good team now!

Me last week at kiddie performance.  Mrs not pleased.  Watched full replay later.  Mrs forgot quickly enough.  Good plan of action.

    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

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up. That should never have happ
