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

    GIANT HEADACHE by The Oracle

    It seems so long ago that Melbourne took an unchanged line up into a game on the MCG against the Greater Western Sydney Giants and cleaned them up to the tune of 45 points.  In truth, the event occurred literally half a season ago in the final home and away round of the 2018 season and marked the Demons’ return to the finals with more triumphs to come in the weeks ahead. Of course, back then, it was the Giants who were wracked with injuries as they stumbled into the finals series facing the

    LANDSLIDE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons enjoyed the better of their first half against Port Melbourne on Saturday but fell away badly after half time to lose by 43 points. The Borough enjoyed the early break with the game’s opening two goals but the Demons took control to go out to an 8 point lead at quarter time, an advantage that it held for most of the second term until a late goal to the visitors clawed the lead back to a point.  The Casey ruck of Braydon Preuss and Liam Wale-Buxton were on top for most

    SHOULD HAVE ... COULD HAVE by George on the Outer

    West Coast finally put the nail in the Demons 2019 season coffin with a 16 point win, but it was a game that Melbourne should have, could have, but didn’t win. Once again woeful, truly woeful work in the forward line, both kicking for goal and the lazy, cheap efforts of some let the side down. A solitary goal in the final quarter and only 9 goals from 24+ scoring opportunities was the costly difference in the game. The selectors, once again, made a critical error in not selecting

    SCREAM by Whispering Jack

    The Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch painted a number of versions of his famous work “Scream” and, every time my mind goes back to last year’s Preliminary Final at Optus Stadium between Melbourne and the West Coast Eagles, each and every one of them reverberates through my mind as if my head is being pummeled by a sledgehammer.  When I think of that half time scoreboard from that match showing West Coast at 10.9.69 to Melbourne 0.6.6, I feel like the man standing by the railing,

    NOT GAWN IN 60 SECONDS by George on the Outer

    You might recall a regular segment that once featured on the MFC website entitled, “Gawn in 60 Seconds”, in which Maxy would ask the hard questions of his teammates. However, there was no harder question asked than the one asked collectively of the whole team in the last 60 seconds of Saturday’s game against the Gold Coast Suns.  It was either follow me and my example or the Demons’ season, already hanging flimsily by huuua thread, would be truly “Gorn”.  It was at that stage when thos

    BOILOVER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons caused the boilover of the season to date when they took on and beat the undefeated ladder leaders Essendon VFL by 41 points at Windy Hill.  The stunning result which was achieved with a season low of eight AFL-listed players, will surely kickstart the Demons’ ailing season after they lost their last two matches as a result of some poor third quarter fade outs against quality opposition. Casey got off to a great start with a mid-air soccer volley goal from Jimmy Munro

    LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by Whispering Jack

    There would be very few among us who would have thought realistically at the start of the season that by the time Melbourne’s Round 8 trip to the Gold Coast came around, the visitors would not only be languishing in 16th place on the ladder, but also be sitting a game behind their hosts. In fact, had the Suns managed to goal late in their opening game against the Saints which they lost by a mere point, the gap between the two sides would have been even wider. Such has been the humiliation o

    UNDERDOGS by KC from Casey

    Thanks to the large injury list at Melbourne, the Casey Demons went into their fifth round clash with Footscray VFL as the underdogs and despite a courageous showing up to half time after conceding the game’s first four goals, their third quarter fade out saw them fall short against quality opposition for the second time in a week. Casey went into the game with only 9 AFL listers after Declan Keilty was called up to make his debut when Tim Smith was forced to pull out of the Melbourne team

    IN THE PINK by George on The Outer

    A five point victory against the eternal nemesis in Hawthorn, didn’t put the Demons back in the black for the 2019 season ... but rather, it added a touch of pink to their fortunes, now showing some sign of life after an underwhelming start to the year. And pink was the most appropriate colour for the side and the supporters, given this game was the annual “Pink Ladies” match.  And none more so than this proud Demon fan who turned up to add his support to the cause and his team at the same

    EASIER SAID THAN DONE by The Oracle

    There is no way of getting around the fact that Melbourne is the disappointment team of the AFL competition and, because it came into the season as a big top four fancy and now sits stone motherless last with a 1-5 win-loss record, it is fast becoming a laughing stock.  The only way in which the Demons can restore any sense of pride, let alone its rapidly diminishing hopes of making the finals is for it to overcome Hawthorn on Saturday in the replay of last year’s preliminary final.

    POINT CRASH by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons went down by the narrowest of margins to a strong Richmond VFL combination in the Round 4 game at Casey Fields on Saturday after a rushed behind  to the Tigers in the game’s dying moments broke the deadlock. In a low scoring game, Casey took the early ascendency after conceding the first goal and held their lead for most of the first half going into the sheds at the main break with an 8 point lead. The Demons were led in defence by key position players, Oscar McDonald

    THE LAST POST by George on the Outer

    The Last Post sounded out in memory of the fallen around a packed MCG at the Anzac Eve match against Richmond. The silence of the crowd assembled was in tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. But the Last Post was also an appropriate symbol of the finals aspirations now gone for the Melbourne Football club, after a mere six rounds of the 2019 Season.   How far has this team fallen!  From a Preliminary final contestant barely six months ago, to cellar dwelle
