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.

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

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane.

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
