Well your good old Uncle Bitter is back after a spell of enforced rehab. ...... and a better man for it no doubt. I'm positively uplifted at the moment.

Very [censored] that the game is in Sydley - the Olympic city as I had big plans for the footy  (and after) today! 

As has been said elsewhere, the filth will come out hard right from the start. I expect they will stay in it until about halfway through the second and then our class should start to tell.

We've suffered some costly losses to the filth at times and now it's time to put the boots in and give Bucks an unhappy send off.

Dees to win by 38 points and sit happily atop the ladder going into the bye.

Good to have you back Uncle.

Lets smash the Pies and go 2 x games clear on top of the ladder for the first time since god knows when...

That’s with GREEN cordial. If Nascent is a cordial connoisseur like myself he’ll know that with RED cordial this ratio is all wrong. Unless you wanna be bouncing off the walls for three days.

1993, 1996, 1999, 2001-2019.

Some of the senior citizens around here may recall if some Queens birthday games actually occurred between the two sides prior to 1990.

The supposedly Queens-birthday game in 2000 when Farmer went nuts with 9 second half goals actually occurred on the Saturday afternoon of the q’Bday weekend of 2000.

My memory is that it was around for a long time before that, at least back to the 1950s. I recall going to the game in the 1970s, and at some point moved away from the QB date (no doubt mirroring our fortunes as a club), probably in the late 70s or 80s. Reviving it sporadically in the 1990s, as above, seems consistent with my memories.

Well we should win but I'm a tad worried with this being Buck's last game and suddenly the team want to send him out a winner. Funny enough if they tried to do that all season he wouldn't be in this situation. 

Glad Langdon is back and Max should be able to dominate the ruck. We should have a good win today. 

To all the lucky demons fans who get to go to the game barrack hard and have fun.

Day’s festivities commenced with a lovely ensemble of asparagus mushroom and zucchini on toasted sour dough, followed by golf with the kids in the front paddock teaching them how to chip into a wheelbarrow - short game makes mo money.

Funnily enough the fact this is Buck’s last game makes me think our guys will take this match more seriously as they know the Pies will come out swinging. Maybe that works in our favor. We won’t be caught off guard like we did against Adelaide. To go into the bye 12-1 sets us up beautifully for a strong tilt at a top 2 finish and guaranteeing ourselves a run of MCG finals*

My ladyfriend (also a Dees' supporter) is bringing round quiche to enjoy during the match. I'll be putting together a simple salad. No cheese platter though. Too fattening.

I bought tea cake for afternoon tea.

As for beverages, I have beer. But was more thinking of a light red, such as temporanillo or pinot noir. 

And, like other posters, I'm suffering from MFCSS. FFS Dees, get off to a good start!!!

Pumping a club with an outgoing coach will add another layer of ruthlessness about the team. 
 

Exterminate.

My tip?

We smash them by 50 plus points.

We will bring the full heat today and give some of their younguns a right fright.

And their two best mids, pendles (did you know he has a basketball background - so much time) and number 22 are slow as so will get caught all day.

Pies will surely look to attack like they did last week given its buck's last game.

If they do our pressure will cause them to turn it over all day. 

If they go slow we will press up and cause turnovers in our front half.

Gawn will have a field day and our three big 3 defenders will love the lack of pies height.

Smashing coming up.

I know that we are a much better team than the pies and we should smash them out of the park but this little voice keeps popping into my head and filling me with dread. Come on you mighty Demons please put my fears to rest, be the hunters, kick straight and show them all that we are the Best.

Go DEES….!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.

She's dipping into the state pork barrelling fund. Yankalilla Bowling Club will just have to wait a little longer for their upgrade.

We are surely the only supporter base in the country who on game day discuss what we are eating and drinking and it’s not VB and a servo pie, but smoked meat and aged whiskey and salad and cheese ?

Stand alone game on national TV.
The boys will take this seriously regardless.
They're enjoying making statements with the football world watching these days.
I know I'm enjoying watching them do it.

    OUR GRAND OLD FLAG by George On The Outer

    When an AFL Grand Final approaches, supporters look for omens to help them foresee how their team will fare in the contest.   Melbourne supporters were, until just before Saturday’s opening bounce, the best in the business at looking for positives to give them hope and direction - a natural feeling after 57 years in the wilderness. So when the Bulldogs’ streamers kept slipping from the handle of the Premiership Cup as Glen Jackovich delivered it to Optus Stadium, they wondered whether it

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    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
