We’re coming off the back of 2 excellent performances so confidence is sky high. We coasted for a few rounds before that but I don’t want to see us coast today. The pies have been terrible but they’ll lift for Buckley’s last game you’d think. I want to see a full-blooded effort, no prisoners taken. Ultimately wins are all that matters but given the opposition and context I want to see us smash the pies

Hoping all our Sydney brethren can get along to support the team and enjoy a great win over the old enemy

I will be there again bda - hope we can rustle up a good number of very vocal Dees supporters

Going to the SCG for the first time today. Driving from Goulburn, just hope I don't get lost.

I'm not sure that's legal. Make sure you wear a fitted MND beanie.

I'd be more worries about what he's bringing from Wang

Got 3 different pubs booked in 2 hour slots so I can get from the big freeze to the team belting out the song on licenced premises, with a few well timed short stumbles in between….

Home with Magpies husband and Demon dog this afternoon. I have too many memories  (bad ones) of losing on QB and the long silent trip home from the G. 
Go Dees. Let’s get it done.

The standard lifted with my departure in 96.

Had much more fun playing Sunday cricket for the mighty demons!

Any idea what sort of cheque Gladys B  will be writing to us after the game?

Hopefully this is the last of the relocated games this year.

Reported as $300k

First live game in 18 months….

Just popped up the shops in my VFL retro hoodie, picked up a MND beanie for my beautiful fiancé. Before the game I’ll be breaking out the 2021 membership scarf out of its cryovacced packaging for her to wear, I’ll be running a 2014 of similar. Aiming to get to Moore Park about 1, enjoy some lunch then of to the G, the SCG.

Cant beat live footy, missed it so much.

Going well this year too are the Demons.  Just about lock for the flag if season can continue.

By any logical measure of ability, experience, game-plan, form or class, the Dees win this by 8+ goals. Then enter the unknown impact of the Buckley factor to complicate the equation. I’m sticking with the the tangibles over the intangibles, and predicting a comfortable win to the Dees, but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a smidge concerned about the alternative.  MFCSS is alive and well in the DOF household this morning.

The stats say the pies are taller, heavier, older and more games experience than us.

if we win the middle and disrupt their kick to kick setups we will win big.  Can see them running on emotion (like 60/40 green cordial) for a bit.  Gap them early and break their spirit.  Otherwise the flogs will hang in there till early in the third and we put a stamp on it.  Gawn to dominate, Weids to deliver. Go Dees

Im having a debate with a Collingwood supporter friend. How long has the QB match (Melb vs Collingwood) been going for. ie: how long is the tradition?

    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

    FEE-FI-FO-FUM by George on the Outer

    “Fee-fi-fo-fum, without a Full Forward the Premiership can’t be won!” So said the GWS Giants, as they exposed Melbourne’s fatal deficiency with a nine point win at the MCG.  In past weeks Melbourne has been barely able to gloss over the lack of a serious target in front of goal, while others were able to contribute.  But in a near repeat of the game from the previous week, players running up the ground simply had no-one to kick the ball to, when all that was needed was that one tall target.

    MUCH ADO ABOUT EVERYTHING by Whispering Jack

    Let's face it. We Melbourne supporters are a demanding lot. Here we are with our team on top of the ladder with a record of 12 wins and 2 losses, a decent percentage and a fair run home for a team with finals credentials. We have a fit list with lots of in form players, many of who are in contention for All Australian and other high honours, the team’s playing with purpose and cohesion and its VFL affiliate is undefeated and going gangbusters.  Still, we're all walking around with conc

    HIATUS by KC from Casey

    After their five week Covid19 lockdown hiatus, the Casey Demons were fairly scratchy against Essendon VFL for the best part of 2½ quarters on Sunday afternoon but they finally settled down to motor away to a 48 point victory. With 20 AFL affiliated players on the team sheet, the Casey line up looked the strongest team ever put together since linking up with the Demons but the team struggled to score in the early going and managed its first goal to Aaron vandenBerg late in the first term.
