What is your "Go To" Dees Game Highlights Video



Recommended Posts

Just watched the highlights of  the RD13 game v Essendon in 2014.

I was working on that game and can remember being in disbelief when I realised we could win.

 

But for me personally. The 2016 Hawthorn win. When Stretch jams that bullet through the middle in the last!

This a moment  i absolutely never sick of watching.   

Geelong and Hawthorn finals 2018.

What beats the Melbourne V Bulldogs at the Western Oval when we needed to beat them and Hawthorn needed to beat Geelong for us to make the finals for the first time in 23 years. It was the final round


Finals aside the Jack Watts Queens birthday game is a big highlight.

In terms of turning a corner (it seemed at the time) the Gold Coast game Round 1 2015 was a real lift. We beat up a fancied Suns team and played some really good footy. And I remember we scored our first coast to coast in I don’t know how long. I was in disbelief when Dom Tyson slotted it. The first really enjoyable Saturday afternoon I had spent at the G in ages.

The 2000 final v Carlton where Green and Bruce tore them apart is my favorite.

When I still had my VCR working, it was the 1998 final round vs Richmond.

Melbourne could go top 4 with a win (after finishing last in 1997), Tiges needed to win to make the finals.

Farmer's mark in the opening minutes and then a clinical dismantling of Richmond over 4 quarters.

This was mine for years until the VCR finally tore up the tape.  

Now i go to the Melbourne Geelong Elimination Final and if i just need a quick lift I just search for Hannan running in for the sealing goal

Have to say 98 was amazing.  The backend from the games we beat West Coast at Subiaco, this Richmond game, then the finals smashing Adelaide, St Kilda only to fall to North in the prelim.  Some of the most exciting free flowing football that you will every see

Same. Still have original recordings on IQ of the finals games plus R22 game v WC and R23 v GWS.

If IQ was a cassette tape I'm sure it'll be well worn by now.

There’s a few wins in the last 30 years that stand out and I revisit, but I’d have to say the last quarter of the qualifying final against Carlton in 2000 gave me the biggest buzz at a game that I can remember. 

For individual brilliance, Wiz’s 9 goal second half blitz against the Pies also in 2000 has the most views here I’d say.

Have to agree. The last quarter against Hawthorn in 2016 was a coming of age sort of quarter for us.

We'd gone from losing to Essendon by 147 points and going nowhere as a club to beating the 3 time reigning premiers three years later. We also came close to them in the earlier game that year.

Watts and Tyson kicked some fantastic goals late in that game as well as Stretch.

Jakovich's 11.8 against North in 1991 against the asbestos-laden old Southern Stand demolition site.

Knocking Geelong off at Kardinia Park under Roos. 

Killing off the Hawks' winning streak the year after their 3rd consecutive flag.

First quarter of elimination final in 2018 against the Cats.

Knocking the Pies off at Vic Park in 1991ish.

2000 Qualifying Final vs Carlton.

Round 1 2005 Melbourne v Essendon at the G. This was the Troy Broadbridge memorial match and it's the only match day DVD I've ever bought. Still chokes me up as it did when I saw the match in the flesh. If you've got a spare hour or two, it's on You tube. And we won convincingly. (Pretty bloody good team we had btw when you see them walk out).

With 2 mins to go in our game and holding The Dogs just about every Dees supporter at the ground was glue and listening to the radios as the siren went at Kardinia p[ark and Hawthorn hung on to a 3 point win coming from behind thanks to Dunstall's winning goal.

The Dees supporters at the ground all went ballistic while our game was still in progress it felt by the players of both clubs had stopped and thinking the siren had gone. However the Melbourne boys would have worked it out quickly l believe.

Brings a tear to my eye, 1987.  They did it for Robbie,

    CANCEL CULTURE by Whispering Jack

    I’m not one who likes mixing politics with sport but it should be noted there have been some unusual trends in the world of sport lately. In the US, Major League Baseball announced that it’s moving the 2021 All-Star Game and the 2021 MLB Draft out of Georgia, in response to the state’s new voting law. Over here, there’s a move to force Carlton to change its club song because the original song on which it was based (written in the late 1800s) has “racist connotations”. The Blues maintain the curr

    MOGGIES MASTERED by George on the Outer

    They say that herding cats is an impossible task but not for the Melbourne Demons who through relentless pressure, scored a commanding 25 point victory in Round 4 over Geelong at the MCG. The team that missed the AFL finals only once in the past dozen years were shown up by the new Demons of 2021 who have recorded their first 4-0 opening to the season in 21 years! Melbourne knew what was coming, and it was Geelong who were shown up for their inability to adapt to the 2021 style of foot

    UNDER MY SKIN by The Oracle

    The story goes that there’s a certain player from Geelong who has been seen in Moorabool Street crooning the old Sinatra classic, “I’ve got you under my skin.” His name is O’Connor and he’s been tasked to achieve one thing on Sunday by his coach, Chris Scott: to get under the skin of a Demon midfielder on Sunday and thereby tag him out of the big contest at the G. The idea behind the tactic is to not only blunt one of the team’s most destructive weapons but to distract them all from producing th

    MAX IN SPACE

    Demon skipper Max Gawn is one big unit at 208cm and lately he’s been standing even taller. We already know that he’s unstoppable in the air when going for a mark but with three consecutive victories to open the season, you might say that he has his head in the clouds.  And that is literally true thanks to a fan at Demonland.com who recently arranged for our big ruckman to go even further than the clouds but way beyond to the edge of space and into the stratosphere.

    CAPITAL PUNISHMENT by George on the Outer

    A 34-point win in the nation’s capital has seen the Demons kill the Giants hopes early in the 2021 season. It wasn’t only the scoreboard, but a succession of injuries to major players for GWS that has put paid to their aspirations. The winning result wasn’t just due to the opposition losing players, but also to the relentless pressure from this 2021 Melbourne side that put them in the winners circle. In past years, a 16 point deficit at the first change combined with a rampant Toby Greene w

    POWER AND THE PASSION by Whispering Jack

    The Demons ran out for their Qualifying Final match against the Fremantle Dockers at Casey Fields as the sounds of Midnight Oils’ “Power and the Passion cascaded over the mainly friendly pro-Melbourne crowd. It was a far cry from the season opener at Carrara in late January where few of their fans were in attendance in high 20’s heat and humidity and silence greeted every score from the slow-starting Demons. They ran away from the lowly Suns, won comfortably in the end and followed that with ano

    BREAK OUT by Whispering Jack

    Despite the chaotic events occurring in Canberra over the past few weeks, one thing is for certain. This weekend’s game at Manuka Oval in the nation’s capital between the GWS Giants and Melbourne will decide which of Scott Morrison or Leon Cameron is the most under the pump at this point in time.  This time twelve months ago, the Giants were coming off a season in which they had played off in a grand final. They opened up their 2020 campaign with a resounding 32-point victory in round 1 aga

    MARVELOUS PRESSURE by George on the Outer

    Is this a new form of Melbourne which has suddenly emerged in 2021?  In the past, whenever the pressure was applied, the team would falter early and as a consequence, it would more often than not, be forced to confront its own self-inflicted failure. But perhaps not so this year. The match at Marvel Stadium against the Saints provided an insight into how creating pressure, actually relieves it on the club, players and coach. Right from the start, Melbourne was there to make a stat

    STUCK IN THE MIDDLE by The Oracle

    Throughout the off season, St Kilda was touted as an improver and a possible challenger for a top four position mainly off the back of another good trade and draft period at the end of last year. Then in Round 1, the undermanned Saints made a shaky start and almost succumbed to the Giants but they managed to come home from a wet and woolly Sydney with the four points intact. For Round 2, they have a couple of handy players returning so they come into the the game at Marvel Stadium choc

    A SCRAPPY, SLOPPY SUCCESS by George on the Outer

    After what seemed like an eternity without Footy in Melbourne, the Demons and their fans produced a scrappy, sloppy yet successful return to the MCG. Yet is was against an interstate team from the furthest reaches of the country, but the 21K fans who made it through the gates, was way below expectations for numbers.  Sure it can’t have helped with all the difficulty that Ticketek imposed just to get a ticket, and since you just couldn’t walk up, perhaps the number wasn’t that surprising.

    UNFINISHED BUSINESS by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has unfinished business with Fremantle after that unexpected loss in their previous clash at Cazaly’s Stadium in Cairns cost it a place in last year’s finals campaign.   Back then, the tired Demons spluttered listlessly through the humid conditions in tropical far North Queensland playing in and losing two games in the space of four days and against two lowly clubs. The end result was much more than an embarrassment for the club given what was at stake at th

    PRACTICE PUMMELLING by George on the Outer

    Was this a practice for what lay ahead for the Demons in 2021 or was it an outcome to expect because it was used as a true practice game? Those of us on the outside will never know, but a 39 point loss to the Western Bulldogs was a pummelling in anyone’s language. We can draw some consolation from the players that Melbourne put on the field, with Toby Bedford, Jake Bowey, Kade Chandler, James Jordon and Tom Sparrow each getting a guernsey whereas they probably would not normally be in the f
