GRAND FINAL: Melbourne vs Western Bulldogs

Recommended Posts

In the 3 hours of sleep I managed last night, I dreamt that the Bulldogs reeled our 50 point lead into 2 goals before Dogga kicked an almighty settler and we ran away with it.

My heart rate is steadily rising now. 

I want to it to be over but want to enjoy it.

Glad to know there's so many of us feeling all over the place at the moment!

Starting to have panic attacks. Don’t know how I’ll sleep. Shivering all over my body. This will be a long night…

Ok, I promise I’ll sleep now…

I can’t read anymore articles or listen to any more previews. It’s all been written or said at this stage. It’s time to play but still 22 hours to go. No idea how I’m going to keep my mind occupied in the meantime

I had a dream of Caroline Wilson interviewing David King at the old dilapidated Arden St Ground. I was way, way off.

Sleep well Demonlanders if you can.

Dream of goals galore, meat pies, Kozzie magic, big Max, frankfurts, beer, fair decisions, oliver dancing, Lever marking, Fritta prancing and the drought broken.

Abbey May is awesome and I expected nothing less from 7 than to give her half a song.

She's great! I saw her perform in Melbourne a few years ago. I just hope she doesn't play Cast That Devil Out

I’m hoping for a strong start by us. Then we can apply the shackles on our terms. Very few sides have been able to manage any meaningful catch up footy against us. 

I'm trying to think of games where we've built up a lead and had it reeled back by our opponent. I reckon there are only three:

  1. Hawthorn in Round 18: we had a 27 point lead in the second quarter but they reeled it back, took the lead, and ended with a draw;
  2. Adelaide in Round 10: we had an early 18 point lead, and had a 15 point lead late, but lost both of those;
  3. Sydney in Round 8: we had a 22 point lead in time on in the third, but they cut it back to 3 points

(There was West Coast in Round 21, who brought our 34 point lead back to 9 points, but that was in exceptional circumstances with the lightning so I say it doesn't count)

Pretty much any other time we've had a lead brought back by an opponent, we've ended up kicking away in the end:

  1. Otherwise, Adelaide in Round 22 brought a 28 point lead back to 3 points, but we then kicked away to win by 41
  2. Port in Round 17 brought our 26 point lead back to 9, but we kicked away to win by 31.
  3. Geelong in Round 4 brought our 30 point lead back to 12, but we kicked away to win by 25

I'm strangely relaxed but no doubt will be toey tomorrow and will be getting into the soup around 4pm. Be well and truly ready by 7pm Brissie time. Reckon we will win and win well. Start well or be within a kick or two at half time and we will run all over them. Was 12 years old in 64 and as mentioned before was at the G that day so been a long time for me and allot of you. 

Bring it home guys.

No game to attend in person so put a few $ in the uber eats account and bought a nice bottle of cognac and some high west bourbon-

After a 45 minute walk around moonee ponds  today we were beaten 7 houses to 5 . Click and collect at the party shop and we were away -

adding every members scarf I have from 2011 to now  , we tied them to the front of the house and as the kids noted each year ( and at one point had every scarf on around their necks ) 

if they only knew how it was in the stands for many of those days . 

Can I suggest a stretch on the lounge room floor  - can’t believe how tight I was . Perhaps tomorrow also .

Whiskey has also been a pleasure today .

Many thanks to the demonland podcast crew and for Whispering Jacks GF preview with the conclusion below - I believe - Go Dees . 

‘I expect Melbourne with it’s edge in fitness to, at long last, bring the premiership cup home to the MCG for their long-suffering faithful fans.

If the logic of what’s been written here isn’t enough to convince you, then consider the strange events that have been taking place back in the home of the Melbourne Football Club with a plague, an earthquake (epicentre in the snow country) and rioting in the streets — some are saying that the upheaval taking place bears proof to the fact that Norm Smith’s Curse is about to go up in flames and that come Saturday night it will have finally been lifted off our shoulders.’

The Dogs have won 20 out of 25 first quarters this year.

In the five games they didn't win the first quarter, they are 2-3. The two wins were vs Gold Coast and the semi final vs Brisbane.

The Dogs have been in front at half time 19 out of 25 times.

In the six games they were behind at half time, they are 1-5. The only win was vs Carlton.

(By comparison, we were in front at half time 15 times from our 24 games. In the other 9 games, we had a 5-4 record)

Goodnight Demonland. Sweet Dreams. 

 

If you can sleep any time before about 3am you'll be doing better than me.

Happy Grand Final Eve one and all, and to all a "Go Dees".

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2021 by Whispering Jack

    MUCH ADO ABOUT NOT MUCH The 2021 Free Agency and Trade Periods were billed by Fox Footy as promising a “period like no other and that certainly proved correct but not for the reasons that Network spin suggested when promoting its daily program of news from the trade desk. The truth is that the football public has endured an uneventful and forgettable fortnight unless you perhaps, happen to be a Carlton or a Hawthorn fan. The Blues managed to pick up the biggest name of the trade peri

    CHANGES 2021 by The Oracle

    Part 1: Moving right along … For the first time in aeons, the end of the football season hasn’t felt as if it passed so swiftly. We’re still living the dream of 25 September, 2021 and rightfully so — we were patient, long-suffering and we’ve earned the right to party hard (as long as we’re not infecting the rest of the state as some health authorities contend). But we’ve also come into October which in football terms means that for one segment of the Melbourne Football Club — the recru

    THE APPRENTICE by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne Next Generation Academy prospect Mac Andrew has had a meteoric rise in the eyes of many track watchers who follow the fortunes of football talent at the elite level. So much so that under the AFL's new rules which prohibit clubs from matching bids on their NGA players within the first 20 selections, there’s a widely held perception that Andrew is falling out of the club’s grasp.   Despite being buoyed by the Demons’ drought-breaking premiership, some fans are showing their a

    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 th

    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
