This 1 sticks with me at 14:10 from the boundary during a rampaging comeback during the 2002 semi final.
Had me redlining bigtime.

Great goal but that was such a bitter loss. Amazing game though, probably one of the best we've been involved in.

Hearing you man.
The 2nd and 3rd qrs was some of the best football I've seen us play.
The 1st and last were garbage.
That game was typical MFC in a nutshell.

Just an ordinary home and away game, but I remember him taking a massive pack mark in the goal square against North in 2002 to boot the winner on the siren.

Loved him ever since.

 

or his hanger at Kardinia Park, where Brad Miller literally almost killed Tom Lonergan, who then had a kidney removed, and we snatched a draw from the jaws of victory :(

I think this game was the most exciting, and ultimately the most depressing, game I have ever watched.

I watched it with my now deceased Uncle, and we were both in tears after it.

Sad aside - when I said goodbye to him in hospital many years later, his last ever words to me were ... ‘Go the Dees’.

Some classic commentary. The “sit down Daics”, “ I can’t, I’ve got cramp” still makes me laugh.

Yeah I was gutted too.
Was sure we were headed for the prelim at 3/4 time as we looked unstoppable.
I remember an interview with Trapper Johnson after the match.
Never have you seen a bloke more pleased after losing a final.
He'd played a blinder for 2qrs and stated he had nothing left in the last ...... Typical.

Supremely talented as a player but also very cerebral. 

His positioning in contests and knowing when to jump and when to get front and centre was sublime. He was also able to play a range of positions, half back, midfield and close to goal. 

Would be a good fit and a great mentor to guys like Fritch and Trac

Fritsch seems a close fit to Yze in lots of ways.

Fritsch actually reminds me of Brad Green. Both lovely left footers.

Best quarter of football I have ever seen played by an MFC player.

Just heard Gaz Lyon on SEN saying there might be another assistant leaving the Hawthorn nest,  he was waiting for confirmation before going with it, but 100% he was talking about Yze... i suspect this is very much in play and hopefully happens sooner rather than late.

If it happens cue DLs version of The Life Of Brian's what did the Romans ever do for us sketch: 

'Ok, apart from getting Alan Richardson, Burgess and Yze what did Mahoney ever do for us???'

On Mahoney getting Richardson, i chuckle at the thought of the correlation between the posters bemoaning his appointment on the grounds he was sacked and has an average win loss ratio as senior coach and those who think the Hawks are the gold standard in everything football. You know, the club that just appointed as their Coaching director a sacked senior coach with one of the worst win loss ration in the history of football.

You are not wrong there, just because a person has failed as a senior coach does not lessen the fact that they make excellent assistant and development coaches and at times heads of football departments. There are numerous examples of this.

Correct, and up to 6 clubs explored getting  Richardson on their team, so its a great appointment.

There is a subset of posters who will see this as an elaborate AFL conspiracy to make us think that he was highly sort after and therefore make us pay overs for him.

Lets just wait on this...

Lyon has probably seen the rumour here...hi Gary, and is going through his channels to see if there is any truth to it.

I hope there is.

At least Gary has the right connections to find out if it's on the money.

We should know in the next few days.

Yeah im pretty sure he hasn't got it from here but maybe.. im pretty convinced Yze is a realistic chance to cross to the Dees and like you say, all will be revealed anyway in the coming days.

    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

    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
