My grand final dilemma (carn maggots!)

Recommended Posts

Great question for some, others it’s quite simple. West Coast for me, very easy choice. Not happy about either but yeah. As much as I’d love to just not watch it I don’t tend to miss watching Grand Final day. I’ve missed more Melbourne Cups to be honest.

West Coast winning represents the least discomfort personally. Collingwood gives you that ‘not knowing where to look’ feeling and there’s been plenty of that recently, it was quite unbearable watching Richmond win last year personally.

I hope WCE wins so they take the cup and the celebrations back to Perth and we only get 1 day of post GF media, if it's Pies then they'll be reporting on it for weeks here... Sorry Ethan Tremblay

Also I can't stand Eddie McGuire

Each year I go into the ballot for a table at the Grand Final. It is always an ABC table (anyone but Collingwood) and this year it was twelve Demons supporters. After yesterday two have pulled out, partly because of Melbourne’s loss and partly because they simply despise Collingwood. I will be there sporting a West Coast scarf because I still hate Collingwood and I want somebody to beat them! 😈

Collingwood for me.( Never thought I would be ever saying that but the fact is I really hate both with a passion.)  My reasoning is the opposite of most. I live in Perth and if Weagles win I will hear about it for weeks and weeks just lke all my friends in Melbourne will do if Collingwood win.  If Collingwood get home it will hardly be mentioned over here after a couple of days.Maybe be even less. I'm being selfish I know but you have got to live in Perth to experience the Weagles supporters gloating. Strangely enough, If it was Dockers v Collingwood I would have no hesitation in praying for a Fremantle win. They a second rate citizen with the local press. Weagles occupy the sporting pages much much more than their across town rivals. eg 'Eagles defender couldn't train due to blister on his little finger' etc etc. Maybe Weagles and Collingwood played extra time after extra time in the GF both sides will drop with exhaustion and the result declared null and void. Perfect scenario.

Mean spirited I know but I couldn't stand Jeremy Howe being a premiership player.

Leaves a bad taste in my mouth the sooking he did about having to play back with us.

Half hearted efforts were not appreciated by this supporter.

He would be a very handy player for us now playing where Roos identified was his best spot...

Sorry but I’m simply not one of those people that hates a team for all eternity just because they smashed us yesterday. I’d hate about 17 teams if that were the case. I will actually be more angry at them if they don’t get it done against the hated filth.

I also feel more comfortable when losing to a team in the prelim if they go on to win it because then there’s a sense of them being the best team and there was no shame in getting done by them.

If you live in Melbourne and you barrack for Melbourne and are over 20 years of age, the correct team to support is West Coast. You are all idiots if you are supporting Collingwood in this Grand Final. No excuses, now is not a time to be stupid.

I’ve thought about this long and hard, ie which of these teams do I dislike more.

Well I’ll be barricking for one of these teams to lose with a kick after the siren.

Just imagine the tears!

I grew up in an era where it was so customary for colonwood to lose finals, especially grand finals, that they had to invent a new word for the english language to describe it

i look forward to colonwood continuing that fine tradition

You need to show more compassion towards us Western Demon supporters. Life will be unbearable for the next five years.

Truck the Beagles. The 2018 AFL season is dead to me.

With all due respect no. We live in the heartland of the club’s name, we take precedence. You’re just gonna have to take one for the team.

2018 is done and dusted for this MFC member. 

The GF outcome is of zero consequence and care factor.

I was going to go for Colonwood, until I saw that obscene shot of Eddie and Gillon embracing at the end of the PF.  And the lingering sound of Gillon saying that we need Colonwood to succeed.

F them both, even if it means WCE taking the cup.

Collusion and corruption has infiltrated all aspects of our society from politics to sport.

I will never forgive  Colonwood for going the man, and sucking us into trying to retaliate in ‘58.

The better side lost, thanks  to nefarious tactics, at a time when sportsmanship was an expected virtue ( eg when Ray Gabelich clapped Barrass on the victory dais in ‘64..... not like Peter Moore chucking away his runner up medal)

I can’t help wishing the worst for the Mudpies.

I’ll never forget the threatened feeling Demon supporters had at Victoria Park, whereas their supporters enjoyed the lap of luxury at our home ground.

i just can’t help wishing the worst for Colonwood. I’d love to see a big internal split, leading to fundamental administrative destruction. Call it jealousy... I don’t care!   Go Met Coke!!!  Do to them what you did to us. They don’t deserve to be where they are! They’ve done well to overcome injury, but they’ve hardly beaten any good sides( except  an overconfident Richmond, and us), and most of their injured players are back now, just when they need them. 

A pox  on you, Mudpies...Go Met Coke!!!  Inject whatever it is that has given you your three flags, and stomp on the baskets.

This. If we aren't winning IDGAF who wins. Not sure why anyone would even bother watching it. We all already know Mason Cox is American.

I will be at the game. Eagles for me. Then ✈️ To Singapore Sunday and I am very happy to be away from the post GF week news hyperbole.

If the Pies win it would be unbearable for weeks in Melbourne. Especially at work. 

Got some bucket list things to do on my trip which I can control.

The bucket list wish for an MFC  premiership is out of my hands but hopefully we all get that one in the not to distant future.

Cheers all.

    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
