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

    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. That stat

    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
