I’m off to the game this afternoon. I’m very excited. Live footy,!. Could be some pies eaten and beers drunk. I’ll barrack for you southern Demonlanders.  Go Dees!  

The Swans can’t score and our defence is peaking, there’s no way we can lose this game. Sydney by 27.

Garry Lyon: "This is such a Melbourne thing to do." Yep.

Was lying in bed cursing this faruking lockdown and trying to remember A: what day it is and B: what appointment I had after 4pm today. After checking my reminders and a bit of light surfing, I realized we are playing at 4 something or other today. What a strange time to play footy midweek

Alas there will be no smoking meat for Josh today, I'll be farming the pig instead of eating it, but go the Dee's none the less.

Do have a nice big brisket lined up for father's day morning though.

Game day !!! Had forgotten until I saw the thread! 
How many times can Dees supporters think off where we’ve won the difficult game ( aints ),  only to give back any advantage , by losing the supposed easier game?

We won’t want to let our guard down this arvo !!!

I see there's a bit of MFCSS virus still lurking about Uncle.  Nothing a good Shiraz won't flush out!

I'd recommend giving it a fair shake well before the bounce.  Finished the remainder of my Wolf Blass grey off on the weekend PRIOR to the match and it worked a treat... anxiety quashed!

I'm having flashbacks of our loss to them in 2018, but I feel as though we've matured since then.  Plus our back line and overall team defence are in a better spot as well.

Dees by 5 goals.

They are missing a significant amount of good players from that team.

I am a little concerned about Papley. Im not sure who gets the gig but I hope they shut him down.

One day Weid is going to breakout and kick a big bag of yummy goodies. Hope it is today.

Funny time slot. We better win because its not a good look being 3 sheets to the wind b4  5.

 

6 goal margin in our favor which is the same number that Weid kicks as well as the number of comfort franks I eat b4 halftime and the square root of Oliver's possies.

Things to watch for:

Are we running hard enough to defend and reset the zone behind the ball?  This is a key indicator if we are on our game or not.

Are we winning the contest / clearance?  For a team that prides itself on this, we have sucked at this for many weeks now.

Do we have reasonable disposal to advantage, or do we play hot potato?  One works, the other makes me want to spew.

Do we have enough presence forward of the ball to offer a suitable target (s)?

Honestly, if we lose this one, we only have ourselves to blame.  Think it will be 42 points Dees win.

26° at game start and maybe 23° at games end. Humidity is forecast to be 68% which is typical winter conditions up here. 
Breeze blowing to the northern end. It will be a good coin toss for Max to win

We are up against Tour De French Fries highlights, so we are no hope...

    SOUNDS OF SILENCE by Whispering Jack

    This was my first game for points involving the Demons in more than a year and a half and the long march to Carrara turned out to be worthwhile. The game was won in a single withering quarter that was dominated by Melbourne on the back of an outstanding display from Karen Paxman. The four-time All Australian picked up 13 touches for the stanza to set up a five goal to nothing second term after a lacklustre start in which the cleaner, sharper Gold Coast notched up the first two goals of the game

    BRIDESMAIDS AGAIN by Whispering Jack

    Historians of the future will have little difficulty in finding words to define the year 2020. “Covid-19”, “pandemic” and “plague” come readily to mind. The Covid-19 pandemic dominated the year in every aspect of life and it certainly didn’t spare AFL football or the Melbourne Football Club. In the circumstances however, it didn’t treat it as badly as the Spanish Flu epidemic which raged a century earlier from February 1918, through 1919 and into 1920 when it finally petered out in April of

    THE TASMANIAN TIGER by Whispering Jack

    I first saw Ben Brown on a cold Tuesday night in May, 2013 playing for the Werribee Tigers against Queanbeyan in a televised Foxtel Cup game before a sparse crowd at Etihad Stadium. His teammate and former Demon Jordan Gysberts was the star of the side’s 85-point belting of the hapless ACT club but the then 20 year old, 200cm Brown was also a stand out.  Earlier that year, the athletic big man had left his native Tasmania in an effort to make the grade after being overlooked in three drafts

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: The Cure It could be coincidental but since the AFL Free Agency and Trade Period began, the State of Victoria has recorded eight consecutive days of no new active cases and no deaths from Covid19. It might be a little early to announce that a cure for this dreaded virus has been discovered but one thing can be said with some certainty after following the ins and outs of the free agency and trading process — mankind is still a long way off finding a cure for boredom.

    CHANGES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: A very strange year Things might have been somewhat hairy when the 1919 football season opened up in the wake of the ending of a world war and in the middle of a pandemic that took millions of lives but it’s difficult to imagine a more unusual football season than the one that ended a week or so ago. For starters, the footy is supposed to finish on that one day in September on the MCG in mild spring weather; not deep into October at the Gabba amid warnings of tropical storms and h

    A- Alice Springs. Happy hunting ground.     B- Backline. Finally found the non-leaking version.   C- Cairns & Covid. How a season was ruined.    D- Demonland. Mental Health facility run by the inmates.   E- The grade you get when you don’t make F- F- Finals. What are they? G- Goals. Lack of them. Need a forward who can kick them….lots! H- Hub. Where players got to live with people you can’t stand. I- Injuries. Miracle cure provided by Dr. Burgess.

    WASH, RINSE, SPIN, REPEAT! by George On The Outer

    Although the Demons got over the line in their must win final round game against the hapless Bombers, they ensured it was Groundhog Day for their supporters who well remember what happened three years ago (although, this time they at least enjoyed the success of victory). Melbourne had its customary start dominating play and having plenty of chances in front of goal, only to find itself down on the scoreboard at the first change. Inaccurate kicking, particularly from set shots would have pu

    THE LUCK OF THE DRAW by Whispering Jack

    The long awaited clash between Melbourne and Essendon is almost upon us. Thirty-seven rounds of AFL football have passed by since the two clubs met on a balmy early April night last year in a game that produced a high scoring shootout at the MCG with the Bombers prevailing by 18 points. It was their only meeting for 2019 and happened at a time when the pandemic was something on the far distant horizon. Several months later when the 2019 season ended, the AFL issued the first of its fixtures

    THERE’S STILL A HEARTBEAT by George on the Outer

    When bottom side Adelaide scrapped together a win over the Giants last week, a tiny glimmer of hope opened up for the Demons’ finals chances. The patient was in intensive care but not quite finished — there was a faint pulse, a heart beating ever so slightly but was it enough when two more wins and other results were needed to fall their way? The first step was the resuscitation of a team that had lost its last two matches against sides then sitting fifteenth and sixteenth on the ladder. On

    THE FINAL HUMILIATION by The Oracle

    On Sunday, the Melbourne Football Club that won three consecutive games by in excess of 50 points last month returns to the Gabba, the scene of the last of those victories which was a 56 point drubbing of Collingwood. The Demons got off to a good start and won every quarter with a ruthless and powerful brand of football. They kicked 16 goals that day, their accuracy in front of goal a tribute to the skills the put on display throughout the afternoon and evening. In the four matches playe

    GIVEN THE OLD HEAVE HO’ by George on the Outer

    Fremantle gave Melbourne the old heave ho’ from playing finals in 2020, in conditions that the Demons yet again failed to handle.   With the whole season on the line and the need to win to stay in contention for finals, what the fans saw was much the same as they have been witnessing so many times before — a complete debacle and capitulation against a side that sat 15th on the ladder before the game.     Promises made after the loss to the 16th placed Sydney Swans were rendered h

    GETTING THE HEAVE HO by Bananabender

    The ute barely made it up to Cairns in time for us to check into the motel, fling a cane toad out the bathroom. and head over to Cazaly’s Stadium where we took up our position on the wing. There, we saw a completely different Melbourne to the one we watched on the screen only a few nights earlier from Alice Springs. This lot wore similar colours and Maxy dominated the ruck but the similarities ended there - the Demons were simply dreadful against the Swans. They started sluggishly, were spe
