Recommended Posts

I just love my footy club.  Finally, I can say it with pride and real belief.  Dad, I hope we can do it for you.  If we do, I'll make sure the fridge is stocked with Abbotsford lager.  By the way, can you please have a word with the big fella up there, to make sure he smiles upon us for the rest of the year and tell him to have a word to Norm and let him know it is ok to let go of the curse..... finally

From the Bulldog Bigfooty. Sounds like a reasonable doggie:
 

 

Melbourne were absolutely first rate. That was a benchmark win and kudos to them.

We aren’t that far away though and I’d really love to see us go round 2 against them with Dunkley and Treloar back in the team. They might still roll us though. Reminded me of Geelong at their best. Hard and skilled and Gawn is a deadset superhero.

In the end we probably could have won by more. Some ump decisions kept Dogs closer than they should have been.

And the Bont’s a great player but was shown up tonight. You wouldn’t know it though by the 7 commentary with Richo surprisingly the worst offender.

But I no complain. Go Dees!!

In my best BT impression, 

"Gee they could have used the Bont the tonight."

Take a bow James Harmes, finally back to being the tagger he is meant to be!

Back to his 2019 form ....Statistically 2nd best for the year that season.

I would love to see us play them at the G with Viney. See ya in September.

Lion would not have been out of place, great soundtrack tonight, Tool and Pumpkins!

Bit of Fatboy Slim for good measure.

Said the same to my wife after the game.  Dad and I had reserved seats, gf tix etc for 22 years together and whilst a premiership will be the best I’ll always regret we never got to share one together.

Lol loved how we dropped one game by one point last week and the people suggesting that our season was over.

A great win. All game we never look threatened and led all night. Clarry, Harmes, Sparrow, what can I say? Brilliant. Gawn improving too.

A lazy last quarter where we only scored one point, but a great game to watch. We proved we can beat the top teams. Bring on Brisbane.

Surely Footscray are no longer premiership favourites. Top of the ladder back where we belong ??

Some of us know Pennant. My only post on the game day thread was stop Libba and we are a chance and Harmes was the obvious one. Thought Harmes was great.

Yes Redleg Harmes was excellent thought the Demonland whipping boy Melksham did some good work on Macrae the first half

Only one goal between Pickett, ANB and Spargo but all were superb tonight.

Immense pressure from start to finish.

All contributed - interestingly I thought that it was far from Jackson's best game ... didn't do much in the ruck ... but he will be back.

I don’t think Langdon being subbed out was for [censored] and giggles, the doctor has to believe the player has an injury that will rule him out for the next 12 days, if the player recovers before that he can play, but only “IF” the AFL sign off on the player playing. The doctor also has to write a medical certificate for the player by the next working day and submit it to the AFL. A stupid risk to take for [censored] and giggles. ??‍♂️

 

Surely it would be just plain stupid to roll the dice using. a medical sub in the last 5 minutes when the game was over ... could have rested him just with a rotation (assuming any remaining).

Yeah but it’s the CLUB doctor. Not an independent one. 

Yes, but still a Doctor, I assume that they could get in trouble from the medical board if it was found out they signed off for sh1ts and giggles? We know clubs bend the rule, I just wouldn’t want to give the AFL a chance to rule that we breached it and not allow Langdon to play next week if he’s not injured, especially considering it was only for the last minute, Sparrow didn’t even touch the ball. I really don’t trust the AFL when it comes to us. ?

Ahhh Goodwin and his belief of winning from the contest out is the game style that only stacks up in finals...

Plan A.

Yet another brilliantly planned coaching performance. Time to extend his contract

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid

    NARRM BLITZES EARLY by Meggs

    The last time we played the Saints, Pride Round 3 January 2022, it was an arm wrestle for 3 quarters and a Demons highlights package for 1 quarter. Oddly familiar was our outing to Moorabbin on Sunday, except this week we are Narrm and it’s Indigenous Round.   Our highlights package was contained to a first quarter onslaught. Superior work at stoppages and our mids dominant.  We showcased our run and carry and our dynamic forward line.  With Hore, Zanker twice, Bannan, Fitzsimon and Paxy al

    THE CASEY SHOW by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons will play in the VFL Grand Final at Ikon Park next Sunday after overturning their final round loss to the Brisbane Lions Reserves and dominating the Preliminary Final to emerge victorious by 51 points.  And while the distance in standards between the AFL and VFL at finals time is admittedly a wide one and the opposition and conditions different, there were a few Demons on display who excelled to the point where one was left to ask whether they could have made the difference
