 Is anyone else watching On the Couch tonight?? I tuned in, hoping to get a snippet or brief mention of our win on the weekend, but couldn't believe the 7/8 minute intro that brought a premature tear to my eye. This is building beautifully.

Any-one got a link or something so I can watch it.
Have tried looking for something myself and can't find anything.

Hey Fork, just type 'On the couch 17/5/21' into YouTube search, and the show is there in full. Enjoy.

I'm not sure where we can meet for a Demonland gathering (annoying question inserted here: what would be the collective noun for a group of Demonlanders? You know - a murder of crows, a mob of kangaroos, an asylum of Pies fans etc...) but I have a few good places to avoid:

  • The pub with no beer
  • The Salvos in Bourke St
  • The Windsor High Tea rooms

Some petty part of me would love to meet on Gosch's Paddock, walk down the road in huge numbers to the Pies headquarters and throw frozen pies over the fence onto their training track. Or cross the road and throw burnt cards and microwaves onto the Punt Rd oval. 

Yes, it does feel rather pleasant to be a Dees man at the moment.

I’d like to see this as a new culture for our fans. No more self-depreciating behaviour, no acceptance of failure, no more badmouthing our club, no more suggesting that we should have merged. I could get used to this

Tbh we really haven't been fully tested this year. The up coming WB game will be a true insight into where we are at and how excited I will get. At the moment I'm still kinda waiting for it all to fall apart as soon as that first loss occurs, I don't want to feel this way but I just do.

It all evens out in the end, doesn’t it?

In 2013, we had people unbelievably telling us that things weren’t really as bad as they seemed. (Note: It really was)

In 2018, we had some people coming out and saying that the losses to Richmond and Hawthorn were as bad as anything Neeld ever produced (Note: Watch the entire Seven broadcast of 148 and tell me if you think that’s the case), and that Goody’s tenure should be questioned from that moment onwards. 

While there were outliers, the truth about those eras were eventually revealed. As will the truth about this era. 
 

Should we continue to win, there will be no room for conjecture.

The Richmond game was not a disaster we were within a goal or two until a Tiger 5 goal last quarter made the final result look that. 
we had held them to about 8/9 goals at 3/4 time and our defence ( which was under performing like the whole team vs Hawks ) stood up well.

So then we played about a quarter and half of average footy vs Bombers at Marvel then Tommy Mac hit the scoreboard and we didn't look back on a 56 goal win.

Eon every game by big margin till Pies gave us an outside running wake up call on QB.

We started to realise then too many inside mids and bees around the honeypot and  it's taken till this year to solve most of those issues.

Just wanna throw some love Demonland’s way. I have learned SO much from DL. I’ve learned which wine is best paired with Beef Bourguignon, where (apart from Aldi) to buy the finest snow gear. That sort of thing. 

JK. (Sadly not JK) ?

Seriously though, I’m the first to admit I don’t have a ‘footy brain’ and not for want of trying. From a technical perspective I probs know more about cricket than footy. (I guess it doesn’t help that footy rules seemingly change every five minutes.) Truth be known, I’ve learned more in a month from DL than I have in how ever many years from the ‘experts’ in the media. Besides being super-informative DL-ers are infinitely cooler (and funnier) than most of those chumps. And on top of all that, my vocabulary has grown exponentially; for on DL  I’ve come across the odd hapax legomenon. Look it up! It’s Dictionary.com’s word of the day today. ??

I feel like we would be entitled to the entire CBD and would hope for levels of disruption to match Ajax's '95 Champion's League win...

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster. Half an hour before this last game of the opening round was due to comme
