What is your "Go To" Dees Game Highlights Video



Recommended Posts

The three most memorable are the 1987 finals run where we beat Footscay, then North by 118 points and the Swans by 70-odd. That was peak optimism as a supporter The campaign for the whole season was do it for Robbie after he wanted to retire at the end of 86.

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

All fantastic games you've mentioned.

Interesting that nobody ever talks about our 1988 finals wins. Great wins over West Coast, Collingwood and Carlton. And we were one of the rare clubs in history to win 3 finals in the one year without winning the flag, in 1988.

We are rather good at holding unusual records

For some reason my all time favorite final is the win against Carlton in the 2000 final series, what a game and Malcolm Blights one sided commentary still rankles me. Green and Bruce played crucial cameo's in a solid team win, I can still remember that we were all jumping up and down as the scoreboard chopped and changed in that last quarter...Phew, I was exhausted.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I remember the bounce of the ball in the centre it went slightly angling towards Jeff White and Malcoim Blight, oh  the opposition ruckman unfairly disadvantaged saying did you see the bounce. Spare me Malcolm ! Never ever had a good word for the Dees.

Honestly i am not even exaggerating. He was a Whinger.

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,

Nothing and I say again absolutely nothing can top this game for me!!😁🤩😎

ANNNND the after match party at MINOOTZ RESTAURENT in Collingwood I think was a particularly great night! Players, Wives, Coaches hangers on and associated hangers on partied on in what still remains for me a pivotal moment in time!!

Not sure if this restaurent is still around!!?

I was strangely confident the entire game.  Carlton were well on top in the general play for three quarters but couldn’t put us away.  Daniher’s teams were always very hot and cold and when we switched it on for the last quarter we were hot!

Love the question, these are the first ones that come to mind:

- 2000 Qualifying Final last quarter against Carlton 

- 2005 Rd 21 last quarter against the Bulldogs and Jeff White's winning goal

- 2006 Elimination final against the Saints

- 2016 against the Hawks

- 2017 against the Eagles. Might have been my favourite Sat night ever as a Dees fan

-2018 against the Eagles. I still have this gane recorded in the Foxtel planner and watch that last quarter probably more than anything I've mentioned. One of the best days of my Melb supporting life.

- 2018 finals.

Also, I always had a really special place in my heart for certain pieces of play by us that involved a massive team lifting bump that flattened the opposition that leads to the team kicking a goal straight after (usually from about 15 - 20 years ago). I used to jump through the roof when this would happen. 

The 2 that come to mind are the Neitz one on Mccabe that effectively ended his career. And the Wrecker Whelan one on James Hird in the 2004 down the members wing that led to the Trapper goal.

I remember after Ox's goal early on where he raised the ball he was just sounding off. "I reckon it sucks, I've seen so many games turned because of that shocking behaviour"

The best of/highlights video of Liam Jurrah for me. He was the most talented football player I've ever seen and sometimes I watch it wondering what could have been and what we all missed out on.

The Freo comeback game is also a highlight but that's possibly because it was one of the most fun days at the footy coupled with a bloody fun night.

There's a bunch of good ones but I do love Farmer's nine second half goals against the Pies.

I also have good memories of our 2006 final against the Saints. I was living in Sydney at the time and watched the game with a bunch of other ex-pats (mostly Saints supporters) in a bar in King's Cross.

My cousin and I were outnumbered and being heckled the entire game and then something changed late and we sprung into action. Brock McLean's goal is forever etched in my memory.

Easily one of my best ever moments as a Dees fan. I was only 14 and sat next to a Blues fan who oddly wasn’t too bad and we just had good banter all game. At the end he shook my hand said, wished us luck, and said thanks for back and forth. Don’t think I’ve ever met a good Blues fan since!

Great choice 'soup!  That last 5 minutes was unbelievable, and the outpouring of emotion that followed it will live with me until the day they drape my old red and blue jumper over a pine box.  For an old fart like me, the only possible rival would be the last 5 mins of the 1964 GF vs Collingwood ...... the Froggy Crompton goal and the Ray Gabelich 'drunken' run.  Indelible memories!

Yep. Definitely right up there. Iirc Pederson played a big role in that win as well.

Spot on. Pederson's last 15 minutes were immense. Think he had three shots at goal, clunked some contested marks and helped set up that TMac special.

2000 when the whiz produced a 2nd half display against the pies and kick 9 goals

when tom kicked the goal against west coast

the 2 finals in 98

beating geelong down there when Robbo stepped up

the game against essendon when we ran that fantastic bit of play in the dying moments and salem slotted through the winner

our 2 finals against geelong and hawthorn

I'm sure there are many more.

    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. Were th

    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
