 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

Like other clubs they will celebrate at their home base. We could all go out to Casey wirh all the demon fans.

If we all wear dees colours we will be able to spot each other

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...

    DELTA DEMONS by KC from Casey

    There was an ill wind blowing for the home side at Casey Fields on  Saturday but you wouldn’t have noticed if you turned up seven or eight minutes into the second quarter with the scoreboard showing the Casey Demons holding a lead of 7.5.47 to Footscray’s solitary point. Up to that stage, the depleted Dees combination had taken full advantage of the windy conditions and headed by veterans Nathan Jones, Jimmy Munro and Mitch White had came out of the blocks and plundered the Bulldogs’ defence.

    ON THE FLY by George On The Outer

    After spending most of the previous day in the air, flying between Queensland and Victoria, it was hard to imagine the Demons would be at their best.   But this team was on the fly on the field as well and produced a clinical display which saw them record a 98 point win to put aside any questions about the side being out of form.   Certainly, the Suns who have fallen away badly in the second half of the season were their opponents, but with the Demons looking for a confidence boo

    CITIUS, ALTIUS, FORTIUS by The Oracle

    This weekend, the Melbourne Football Club was supposed to embark on a tour that started with what looked like an innocent trip to the country’s sunny Gold Coast. However, the Covid19 pandemic intervened to bring them back home for this week at least. Next week, it’s off to the West Coast but conspiracy theorists are already suggesting that this interstate sojourn could take the team all the way across the country over the next month and indeed, there are cynics who even believe that it could bec

    THE YEAR THE SNOWFLAKES FELL by Whispering Jack

    The snow that fell on the slopes of Victoria’s mountain districts in the winter of 1965 was not considered good enough to satisfy the enthusiasts. The really heavy snow that season came in two waves further north in July and August. The first descended on the national capital where “Pig Iron Bob” still held sway. Snow flurries touched the landscape all the way across the Blue Mountains. The next big snow extended further north up to the hills around Mackay in Queensland. Snowflakes fell inside t

    DEES GIVE DOGS A BONE by George On The Outer

    First place versus second on the ladder promised to be a precursor to what can be expected in the coming finals race.  However, it was the Demons who faltered and gave the Bulldogs a bone to feed their hunger just weeks out from the end of the season. The win also sent the Dogs to the top of the ladder, a position they are unlikely to cede in the coming weeks, given their fixture. While Melbourne may now struggle to keep a spot in the top four with its draw and will likely depend on the res

    THE WORM WILL TURN by The Oracle

    When I was asked to preview this game, I wasn’t sure whether it was going to be played in Darwin, on the Gold Coast or the MCG. I had no idea as to the identity of Melbourne’s opponent. This would have made for one hell of an interesting match preview so I’m glad that the AFL managed to reorganize its fixture to enable a game … any game at all … to proceed in Round 19. We’ll worry about the Gold Coast Suns or whoever they put us up against when the weekend’s done and dusted and if and when

    DRAWN AND DEEFLATED by George on the Outer

    1st v 17th ... it would seem a sure one way contest between the Hawks and the Demons but it was not to be with the game finishing in a draw, the only positive being the Demons still retain their top spot on the ladder. Melbourne was taught a football lesson by Al Clarkson, who with limited resources, just instructed his players to scrap, fight and surge the ball forward.  It stifled the Melbourne free flowing style of play and denied them the opportunities they could normally expect.

    PINK RAIN by Whispering Jack

    There is no certainty about life under a pandemic. You wake up one morning without a care in the world; the sun’s shining and it’s a beautiful day. An hour later, everything’s up in the air, the entire state is on high alert and the apartment complex next door’s in lockdown. The simple decision you had to make about buying a ticket to the footy at the weekend suddenly might get put on the back burner. There are other things in life to prioritise and on top of that, they’re predicting rain for th

    COR BLIMEY by KC from Casey

    In years to come, the old timers will talk in wonderment about the “Avalon Avalanche” that hit Werribee’s Avalon Airport Oval on a mild winter’s afternoon at about ten minutes after the halfway mark of the game between the local Tigers and their cross town rivals, the Demons from Casey. At that moment in time, the game was poised as if on a knifepoint. Up until the main interval, it had been the visiting team which had maintained the lead from the start but it had struggled to entirely asse

    POWER FAILURE by George on the Outer

    South Australians should be well familiar with the damage that storms can do to the power supply.  But Port Power forgot those lessons on Thursday night football as they watched the Melbourne storm descend upon them from across the border and ruin their hopes of a top four placing. Just as equally, the win to the Demons cemented their spot in the top two and sent out the message that a team who had been going around in circles for the past couple of weeks, has in fact, turned into a cyclone

    CASEY SUFFER FIRST DEFEAT IN TWO YEARS

    The circumstances were a little unusual last Saturday night as KC from Casey was unavailable to report on the Casey Dees due to work commitments. On the ground things were somewhat unusual as well given that, although there was a game to be won on the night, preparations were also being made for the forthcoming Thursday night clash against Port Adelaide with Ben Brown rested for large slabs of the evening. It turned out perhaps, to be a stroke of genius for Melbourne with Brown making a strong c

    WEATHERING THE STORM by Mel Rundle

    The magic of Melbourne’s magnificent start to 2021 is beginning to wear off. In its past six matches it lost to three teams that were outside the eight, out of form —  teams which it had very little trouble bearing last year. This week, the temperature is turned up even higher with the hard fought spot in the top four at risk. The really ominous factor about the Demons’ upcoming Thursday night meeting with Port Adelaide this week is that it is due to take place at the very place where its dec
