POSTGAME: Rd 12 vs Brisbane



Recommended Posts


Wow. Biggest in-game challenge for the year, being absolutely on the ropes at half time against the rampaging 7-on-the-trot Lions, and we met it. I thought last week was just about the best win in many, many years but this one might have even topped it.

Tom McDonald remembered at halftime that 18&21 Tom has a lot more fun than 19&20 Tom. 

He is just bloody immense. I didn’t see this resurgence of his coming.

Listen up Dees fans. There will be ups and downs, but don’t EVER write this team off. We are a very good football team.

Nobody wants us to win. Commentators and journalists want to maintain the narrative about our football club - soft, shaky, lazy. But we aren’t any of those things. We are hard and fast. Stick fat, stick together, and never ever doubt this current group.

Go Dees.

I think no-one expects us to win, including many of us until 4 or 5 weeks ago.

Now we do. (Even when we don't if that makes sense.)

I'll write more later, but wow. We are watching a proper football team. I did not see that coming. Now I'm convinced. We're the real deal. 

GO YOU MIGHTY REDLEGS!!!!!!

Spargo doesn’t waste a kick. He doesn’t do the “traditional” small forward magic, but if he gets the ball, it goes to a teammate every time. I’ve come around.

My position on Spargo has been that he "adds value" to the ball. When he gets it he regularly leaves us in a better position that before he got it.

I think 7 score involvements (only 1 during shot) from 14 disposals is evidence of this. He is creative, and scores flow from his possession of the ball.

2018 he was superb at this, 2019 he had a shocker. But he has been good since.

Tom McDonald's conduct after receiving that elbow to the jaw from Dane Zorko was exemplary. He pushed back and Zorko staged a fall. Macca then leaned over the prostate Zorko and told him the time of day. Effen AWESOME. After that the umpire awarded Macca the free kick and reported Zorko. MACCA...UNCOMPROMISING...TOUGH...ALL CLASS. Well done Tom McDonald!

Jeez mate, get a grip. Who cares about the umpires. They’re the same every week, why let it soil the mood?

Well @DemonOX your mum was pleasantly surprised that we were on top of the ladder during the week. Imagine how she’d feel right now smiling down at her boy watching his mighty Dees get the job done. ❤️?

Certainly hope so wcw.

Rivers another who stepped it up in the second half. Started playing in front, took a couple of hugely important marks, and gave us heaps of drive through the middle.

But make no mistake it was Oliver and Trac who turned it for us. Oliver’s drive is immense now that he’s finally kicking it more like we’ve all been hoping he would, but still has those quick hands to create stuff like Tom McDonald’s goal out of nothing. And Trac just holds his feet in the contest when he’s in it but explodes away from it with such power. 

Definitely two of the best 5-6 players in the comp now. I can’t think of anyone other than Dusty I’d rather have, and even then I’d probably prefer these two. 

Our defence also sorted out its [censored] in the second half and May in particular took some great marks. Hibberd really shut Charlie Cameron out all night - he was a non-entity.

Sparrow didn’t do heaps but flushing that goal from outside 50 was magic. 

We are up and rolling. That was a massive, massive win.

HELL YEAH!

We switched on the afterburners and got the job done against serious opposition.

And the best thing is (I think) that there were a handful of players who never got in the game.

We are capable of so much more. IT'S SCARY.

So, have we beaten anyone yet?

This.

When we go, no one can can get near us. Skill, toughness, fitness... an unstoppable force.

Kudos to Charlie Spargo. Probably the best game I have seen him play.

Two things to work on. Kicking for goal and tagging free kicks against. The misses by Kozzie, Weed, even TMac were very frustrating. Harmes, Petty, Hibberd and others need to watch their defensive free kicks...

    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
