First Final

If we do play in Sydney week 1, I suggest jumping in early to get flights. 

All the frequent flyers (me included), will be on the Qantas website trying to score freebies with points. 

The real question is, fly in fly out, or fly in, stay the night so you can drink post match, then fly out? 

Hopefully we win on Sunday and get to play at the G. 

It will be a Night game and fly out option is not on due to airport curfew. Need to stay unless driving back.

Loser standing small ...

As it happens, I'll be in Sydney the weekend of the first finals. Needless to say, if the Demons are playing there, I'll be there (+ 3 offspring... all Demons' supporters).

Dees 80% likely to play Geelong at the G during the day! 

I hate night games!

I'm being selfish but I would much prefer a night game because I'm over in London. Really would prefer not having to wake up at like 5-6am for our first final in over a decade!

Warning THIS IS A RANT.  I have never been to a final before.  My husband (hawks) has been to a zillion finals plus 4 grand finals.  You know what he said when I told him I would be road tripping it to Sydney if we end up having to play there?  "You aren't single anymore, you have a family & kids to look after.  Plus your team is not the only team in the finals (i.e. if you go to Sydney I have to stay home & MIND MY OWN CHILDREN & hence will miss out on seeing my team play finals".  My response "ok ok, we will cross that bridge if it comes to it, stomped out the room & yelled BUT I AM GOING & YOU CAN'T STOP ME....!!!  Bloody selfish poos & wees supporting husband.....  Rant over.  Thanks for listening my fellow demons :-)

Go Deeby, I'm with you on this. When we have won 12 premierships since Hawthorns last I will agree with him. 

NB:- in 1964 Melbourne had won 12 flags - Hawthorn 1

               2017 Melbourne 12 - Hawthorn 13

Toughen up hubby, time to look after your kids, go Deeby!

Your first mistake is marrying a hawks supporter..... 

My missus WAS a norf supporter I told her I would buy her what ever she wanted from tiffany and co to ditch the [censored] jumper and get a dees one. 

She now wears the demons jumper proud up here on the GC every game day with out question. I have also been given the all clear to travel to where ever I need to watch a final this year. 

My problem, I dont want to miss the granny so I dont want to fly to melbourne early just to watch us knock off the cats.

Please tell me the children are little dees???

Tell your hubby this sort of rubbish might have been acceptable when we last won a flag. But not in 2018.

Even if we play the first final in Melbourne you should book a beaut room at the Pullman (the old Hilton), have a slap up meal at some flash restaurant (but not with him - dees fans only) and then before the game a big buffet breakfast before strolling to your premium seat ta the g to watch us smash the Cats.

Get ahead of the game and book a room for the following week and hope we play the hawks and make sure he knows he has to look after the kids (because you are more organised).

Out of interest.... Have we ever played at the Sydney Showgrounds?

I can recall playing GWS at Manuka but cannot say I can recall a Showgrounds game. Mind you GWS v MFC matches were never big on FTA.

Yes, we've had some stinking bad performances out there.

In 2013 we let GWS have their only win of the year, and they steamrolled us in the last to win by 6 goals.

In 2014 they also won by 5 or 6 goals in the wet, however I think we had 1 goal on the board at half time.

Won't change our position on the ladder though, we will finish 5th regardless of margin.

Would be a great confidence booster though !

GWS V Melbourne week 1 (if it happens) may actually be at 3:20pm or 4:20pm Saturday Sep 8 rather than 7:45pm.

The AFL likes to have 2 Saturday games, and a possible schedule could be as follows:

Thursday night - West Coast V Collingwood

Friday night - Richmond V Sydney

Saturday twilight - GWS V Melbourne

Saturday night - Hawthorn V Geelong

If we happen to play GWS at Kebab Stadium, what day will tickets go on sale for MFC members? Is it likely to be sunday night at the conclusion of the game, or more likely to be Monday 9am?

 

Edit: Pointless post. My apologies. I found the info on the AFL site site. Says Tuesday 9am

So it's pretty much Geelong or GWS first game unless something silly happens to Collingwood or Hawks vs syd is a draw?

Would not want to be playing Freo at over there after last week. Expect them to really take it to the filth.

Thank you all for your words of encouragements.  I particularly liked your suggestion Binman about a night at the Pullman.  Yes I should have known better than to marry a hawks supporter.  But hey, can't win everything can you.  Re my kids, no way in hell would they ever wear the horrid brown & yellow.  NEVER EVER EVER.  Enough of those around my neck of the woods.  Enjoy this exciting time demonlanders.  And keep up the (mostly...) brilliant posts.  Roll on the finals!

    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

    A MAN’S ERRAND by KC from Casey

    A young and undermanned Casey Demons were sent out on Saturday to the Swinburne Centre in the shadows of the MCG on a man’s errand against a very experienced Richmond VFL combination which is the clear ladder leader and fielded no less than 18 AFL listed players. It was expected to be a rout and the Tigers made easy work of it in the early stages when they held a 26 point lead by quarter time. To their credit however, the Demons weathered the storm and kept their opponents within the range

    THAT’S FOOTBALL by Whispering Jack

    As the season rolls on towards the finals and the football world witnesses the aftermath of the sacking of the league’s unsuccessful coaches, it’s almost  inevitable that the spotlight will turn firmly upon the complete and utter failure of season 2019 - the Melbourne Football Club.  For a team that finished in fourth place last year and was heavily touted as a premiership contender, the fall from grace has been dramatic. As things stand, the Demons look certain to finish 13 places down on

    THE MOMENT OF TRUTH IS COMING by KC from Casey

    At half time in Sunday’s game at Trevor Barker Beach Oval, things weren’t looking too flash for the flailing finals prospects of the Casey Demons. Key forward Sam Weideman had suffered a concussion in his first contest and, with a few exceptions, the team was playing like a rabble rather than a finals contender. The Demons were 23 points in arrears to the Zebras and their season was headed towards oblivion. It was the skipper Mitch White who spurred his team on by word and by deed - he fini
