Who reckons Mcgovern is at half mast a week out thinking of all those interceptions?

He won’t be able to see it below his fat guts, but yeah, he will be.

Farcical really. Call me a grinch, but that level of joy inside the coaches box and on the field is nauseating. No way did we deserve to win that.

Hope this doesn’t keep the scrutiny off our backs.

You are a grinch and I hope you find joy in something

I watched it with my younger brother. We were literally holding each other, trembling, the last minute. In all seriousness, it’s taken me so long to post because we’ve only just let go. My heart is still pounding. 

What a win! It’s usually games like this we throw away. So many games I’ve seen the past few years where we were in front and the other team caught up and managed to steal a win. Its usually the opponents who steal a win like that. Thought it was over when GC kicked that goal, but for once, we stood up where it counted and never gave up. One of the best finishes I’ve ever seen to what was a mostly average game. Great to see Jones back in firm.

Now we’re ordering pizza and going to have celebration drinks.

Go Dees!

 

I’m with you Cassie, I’m surprised at the negativity here, imagine if we had lost! That last 49 seconds showed huge growth with our group, we stole a win, go Dees! Flag’s up 2 weeks in a row

Yes, you’re being a grinch. What you saw from the box was “very pleasant surprise” - if you reckon we all kicked the cat after that last Gold Coast goal, they’d have been  fuming. Coaches are usually competitive beasts, they want to win. Of course they’re going to celebrate when they win when it looked like they wouldn’t with 00:01 on the clock.

did you listen to the call dees ?

Only after we'd won.  I hate listening to the radio without being bale to see whats happening. I sat at the computer checking the scores every now and then. I thought it was going to be a draw and came back to check to see we got the behind. 

But that last passage of play was great and well done to maxy for not only getting the hit out but just bombing it into the forward line and also to harmsy for getting the ball forward and tommy for having the smarts to just get it through and not trying to pick it up. 

The fact we managed to score twice in the last 50 seconds is a miracle. 

Look we are one game and % out of the 8. We are still alive. We won lets bank it and hope we play better next week because we will need to.

Onya coach, me too. I’m honestly shocked to jump on to Demonland to a funeral-like response, I thought I’d be sharing the love with fellow Dees fans. Guess I should know better by now.

finally, another optimist, this website can turn into a dark hole of cynicism when things aren't going our way, but the fact is, we bloody won!!!!!!!! time to celebrate :)

Well I must be the only one who’s stoked. Yes the game was a bucket of pus, but I wasn’t expecting anything but. We’re not contenders this year, we knew that. 

I still like winning above all else, and we did. I jumped through the roof at the end as if it mattered.

Nup, totally with you Nasher. I’ll never be disappointed with a win. Yes there are degrees you can be happy with the performance but come on. 

I was on the verge of a coronary in my living room much like the WC game in Rd 22 and the elation when T-Mac nailed that post. You forget the context of the game in moments like that.

As mentioned before, well aware of our predicament. That can be tomorrow’s problem. For the people that just can’t wait that long maybe 1 hours time’s problem.

Marty Hore is a beauty and l have said it before.  TMAC 3 goals and the winning point he is starting to show form.

One of the worst games of football  but who cares we WON that is what counts.

Goldcoast pushed the Wce away late and lost by 3 goals  so it wasn't going to be a give me game.

I am going to enjoy the weekend although it would have been miserable if we had been beaten. 

Winners are grinners  and loses can please themselves.

We kept going despite several players clearly injured....Gawn, Melksham Hibberd etc.....we were out on our feet. Yes it was horrible, but we never gave up. TMac was interviewed by Jeff White after the game. He said they practiced and practiced all pre season for just such a senario where they were having to score a goal with less than a minute to go. He said it worked just how they wanted it to....and in fact it worked twice.

but you name a team that has won a game down by 6pts with 47s left in the last few years.

Gawn was huge in that last 47s, as was Oliver, Viney, Harmes and sort of Tmac.

centre clearance with a chaos ball around the body...  and a Hunt aerial contest...  and stretch and Harmes break away from the contest,  ball to the goal-square and TMc contests, keeps his feet and gets a slipper onto it...  enough for a WIN.

We're still,  Alive Alive O...  Hose`

Ok boys get it out of the centre as quick as possible, crash a pack and get a handball away to your running team mate, then run inside 50 and kick to your team mate who is standing on his own.

The next bit and I cant stress this enough, drop an uncontested mark.... the opposition will think they've got it, then BANG soccer the ball but not through the goals, straight into the post.

Game.

From flag favorite to beating Gold Coast by a point with 1 second on the clock.

 

All game I as accepting the season was over. So much so that the winning kick was barely greeted with a grunt.

We are still the Dees of the 1970's

    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

    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
