What is your "Go To" Dees Game Highlights Video

Surely the 2006 elimination final against the saints us right up there. I remember thinking this game was the making of Brock McLean and we had the next Nathan Buckley on our hands.

Nathan Carroll bringing down G-Train which completely turned the game that night also.

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

That last quarter was thing of beauty if you’re a fan of Yze, Trapper and McLean at their best. Will always remember Pickett’s goal in the third quarter that gave us all the momentum.

Unfortunately a false dawn. We were beaten by Freo the next week and complete rubbish for the next 10 years before a revival of sorts in 2016-2018.

An often missed game 1998 at Princes Park V Carlton round 4 , first game for Nathan Brown who was insanely brave for a skinny 17 year old that day, great comeback and first proof we were a real chance of making finals after the disaster of 97.

I can’t recall the year but one of the best games I have ever see was a final vs Adelaide at the MCG, travis Johnstone was unbelievably good but was pretty much cooked at 3/4 time as he wasn’t that fit. 

Would be number 1 if we'd won. Was a great standard, but the result was horrible after coming from 7 goals down to lead by 5 goals and then lose still..... 2002

Johnstone was well held that night until the last quarter where he was absolutely sublime with some of his forward entries. What we would kill to have someone in the current Melbourne side with that kind of outside skill set.

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,

Follow up to that the first 2 finals vs Nth and Sydney, found them on VhS in a box  but dont have a player any more

2002.

We were down by 8 goals at qtr time but somehow managed to kick a combined 14.7.91 in the middle 2 qtrs.

We were out of petrol by 3 qtr time.

Travis was always a big game player and had a great record in finals matches. That 2002 semi final against Adelaide he kicked four goals from a wing and carried a team on his back for 3 quarters. One of the best games by a demon in my life time. Shame his teammates couldn’t go with him and get the job done that night.

I was at the match down the visitors end right behind the goals. I remember Robbie marking and kicking truly from not far out, which if I remember vaguely was an important moment, and then nearly getting my head knocked off for celebrating too exuberantly after the siren by [censored] off Doggies fans.

One of the most bizarre games I've ever seen by the Dees.

28 points up at 3 qtr time and choked.

That Final vs Adelaide was a ripper, even for a game we lost (still gutted).

But I will never forget the elation of the first two finals in 1987. Fell into the finals and absolutely smashed the more fancied Kangaroos and Swans off the park.

that's when we needed a trapper that could put in more than two quarters of effort at a time

as a then resident of adelaide i was not a happy camper

top five that spring to mind that i was at:

  • 2000 qualifying final comeback against caaaaarlton - bit that gives me the most joy these days when watching the replay is hearing blight get shirty about the ox raising the ball over his head running into goal in, i think, the second quarter and hearing the old misery guts actively barracking for carlton as we stormed home...had fab spot right on the wing, was a glorious afternoon
  • 2018 elimination final against the puddy tatts - beating geelong with their holy trinity all playing after falling agonisingly short against them not once but twice during the season was a glorious thing to happen, plus i got to take my eldest children to the game; prior to this none had been born when the dees last played - let alone won a game - in a finals series
  • 2018 semi-final against poos&wees - after the sheer joy of the week before, i was positively delirious at the end of this game and thought - ha! - sure, we can absolutely take it up to meth coke again (after all, we'd beaten them there four weeks before!) plus i absolutely loathe hawthorn and while they weren't at full strength they are still, probably, my second most detested side after the mob up next...
  • 1991 elimination final against essington - jakovich was being soundly beaten by, i think, alan ezard or shane heard, and then he went absolutely ballistic in the second half to finish with 8 goals as we executed a 10+ goal turnaround to run out easy winners out at arctic park
  • 1990 elimination final against poos&wees - just like in 2018 they were the dominant team of their era but tailing off (albeit they would go on to win the whole shebang all over again in 1991), and we beat then not once but twice in the space of a fortnight with tony campbell and peter rohde doing massive jobs on piggy and the kid

of non-finals encounters, cuthbertson going crazy one anzac day vs the filth was pretty spesh, as was seeing jurrah in full flight against the pear a couple of times, once at footy park and once up in darwin with the crowd right behind us up there for about the first and only time that i can recall

The 2018 finals are definitely a great pick-me-up when needed, but a couple of obscure games that I love watching on YouTube are the 2014 win against Adelaide over there, with Roosy guiding the boys to their first win in SA for a bloody long time. And the other one that still warms my heart to this day was a victory against Carlton in 2005, in the last home game they ever played at Princess Park. John Elliott had continuously labelled us irrelevant, and there was no way that the blue baggers were going to let down the masses of dumb feral Carlton supporters who packed into the stands that day. But they did, and for once, we were the best party-spoilers you could hope to support. Go Dees.

The wins that bring the most joy to my face to watch again are:

- 2000 QF against the Blues

- 2005 against the cats a KP

- 2017 West Coast (TMac match winner!)

- both 2018 finals wins

    A WALK IN THE PAST by Whispering Jack

    On Monday night, the Melbourne Football Club handed out four life memberships. Two of those awards went to men who are long gone. Charles ‘Chubby’ Forrester and James ‘Jas’ Byrne played for the club in the 1870s, even before the Victorian Football Association was formed. The other two are current skipper Max Gawn and swingman Tom McDonald, who almost left the club at the end of the pandemic-affected 2020 season. Some fans might have raised their eyebrows and wondered whether the emphasis on hist

    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

    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
