  • Podcast: Draft Wrap Up w/Jason Taylor  

Recommended Posts

A lovely morning for GF.  Shame we are not there.  Hoping for a good game of footy.  Share what you are up to and your thoughts on the game (to take our minds off Hogan and Freo for a little while...)

Feel a bit for Dunne.  He did the hard yards with us, didn't choose to leave and didn't mess us around when it was time to go.  Found a niche for himself and has performed well.  Missing out on a career long dream is tough especially has he may not get many more chances.

Not barracking for the Pies tho'...

It’s a funny one this year. It was a lot easier to get into the GF excitement when we were cellar dwellers. Now there’s that pang of ‘so close’..

Go Weagles for 2 reasons: 

- we’d be able to say ‘ah well , we got beaten by the eventual Premiers’.

- under no circumstances will I ever have the ability to barrack for the Filth. 

 

We’ll be there soon, my friends...

The game will be tough to watch. A good time to do some household jobs I have been putting off for a long time.  I might just go for the Magpies to win because last Saturday at halftime my mother in law who lives in Perth called me just to remind me how well WC were playing and lauding their beautiful kicking. Like she never calls me direct unless she normally wants something so obviously a naked example of rubbing it in.  I will be more than happy to offer my sympathies if they lose. The only small positive I can wish for.

Tickets for restricted members go on sale at 11am.   Thought it was a very small queue this morning...proves that no one except pies & eagles supporters care...very different demographic in member this morning

Agree, no enthusiasm or interest in today’s game. Still grieving we came up short.

Well, just saw that ‘ScoMo’ (what sort of [censored] nickname is that anyway??) will be cheering for ‘Perth’ today. 

Kiss of death.

We could have been there but such is life. I will watch over a few beers and a Parma but no emotion. Also don’t care for a close game, I’d be more than happy for a whitewash this year as long as West Coast are the ones washing.

I’ll open a bottle of a cheeky Shiraz, have a cheese board, put on a Mahler symphony and read some Stoic philosophy in Ancient Greek, as all Demon supporters would.

I’m sitting outside gate 1 waiting for my husband to meet me here. So many Pies supporters - I feel dirty. Joffa and the gang on their way over the footbridge chanting ‘Collingwood’. Got my antiseptic hand wash ready.

Just walked past Andrew Gaff who looked surprisingly cheerful. No where near as big a bloke as I thought he would be.

Its going to be a long afternoon....

Early Channel 7 coverage has Oscar MacDonald winning the final of the longest drive off the tee competition they have been running during the season. 292 meters, that’s up there with the tour guys! I think he plays off 1. You wouldn’t pick him as having exceptional hand/eye coordination sometimes on the footy field. 

Well done, won a set of Taylor Mades and the gold jacket.

Worth a watch if you didn’t see it. 

Good man Joffa. Puts all the million dollar trades and billion dollar rights deals into a bit of perspective. 

“Quite a few people out there won’t have eaten very well the last few weeks tucking a few dollars away to pay for a finals ticket.”

Honestly don’t care who wins today but if he’s waving that stupid gold jacket around at half five pm I’ll be happy for him.

Really not that interested but like all Grand Finals I will watch. I hate the filth so I would like to see the cokeheads beat them by 1 point and then see McGuire squirm like a maggot ducking for cover.

Not sure if i can watch it. Still sad and still in a bit of shock actually from last weekend...

 

Dam!

Agreed. I am on my way to the game and am not looking forward to barracking for team that knocked us out of the finals. Support the Pies for the day, no way.

Came out in the MCC ballot so may as well make use of my $695 a year membership. 

Go Eagles 😞😏😴

It will be a good game to watch. Don’t support either.

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    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
