There is no doubt how clever the technology is that shows ads on Demonland that reflect interests, concerns and likely sales opportunities. 

An excellent example is this ad with a picture of my face showing my frown and worry lines that is featuring prominently on my game day thread (best i don't mention the others):

The mind boggles as to what kind of ads bbo recieves!

Really hard to tell what that bit of rain out West will do by the time it gets to the GC (if at all...).  Either way, think it's most likely to be fine most of the time...

Well your the man on the spot,  local knowledge  and all that, still looks like a band of rain but not that much after that, but it can change  Enjoy the game and barrack hard   Go Dees

I’m sure we will find out if it’s raining when we get there. ?

Considering BOMs record I’m sure we all have a chance of being right  

 

if i'm any judge on the speed of the radar (doubtful) rain will hit the gold coast around the 2nd quarter ?

Can’t see us winning this. We smashed Hawthorn who are proving to be a bottom 4 team and young GC side who are inconsistent. Let’s not get carried away. 
Brisbane are the form side in the competition. Their back line will make it hard for our forwards and their mids are as good as ours and use the ball extremely well going forward. 
 

I think we will lose by 5 goals. We are a borderline top 8 team. They are a top 4 team and my flag favorites. 

I might change my tune in 5 hours, but Brisbane have had a pretty easy run so far, beating Adelaide and Freo, out of form GWS and WCE (we got them at the wrong time!) and being smashed by Geelong. All of their wins have been at the Gabba (except GWS ALat Giants Stadium). They did beat the 2nd place PA which sounds good, until you realise PA have basically beaten the same teams: GCS, Freo, Adelaide, Eagles and GWS (and stuck in against Carlton).

It week be interesting  see how they go against us, Collingwood, Richmond, saints and dogs.

Yeah, that rain band seems to be building as it gets closer.  Looks like we might get a bit in next coupla hours.  Hopefully it'll have passed well before game time...

(Since 10am this morning until just a few minutes ago it has been clear and sunny...!)  Starting to cloud up a bit now...

Don't discount the fun in a proper downpour being unleashed if that rain band hits the Gold Coast right as the temperature drops in the evening. Throw in just a little bit of backing up on the spot due to the heat island and one lucky push of wind back in from the coast at the right moment... Fwsooosh and only Gawn's eyebrows will be above the water line.

Tonight's the night, even the weather is going to be epic (as the kids say these days).

MFCSS kicking in strongly. Not confident.

Yes, same here, I’m afraid. I think I shout at the TV either way. I realised last week that I ‘ride’ the team home, if they are winning, much like someone who has bet a $1000 on a horse!

Is this get game day thread or the weather channel?? ?

We are getting very technical on the weather front.

Maybe the local Dees on the Gold Coast heading to the game can give us an update upon arrival and just before the first bounce.

At the end they highlight what a lot of us have been saying about Lockhart, hard running and shutting down options.

That's great vision of his run to cover McEvoy.  Something small but easily missed, and just an example of why they like having him in the side.

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster. Half an hour before this last game of the opening round was due to comme
