'It does break my red and blue heart': How locked-down fans will celebrate the GF (afl.com.au)

God I hate Dan (almost as much as I hate Dazzle), treats us like children with a 9 o clock curfew. The sooner he is tossed out the better. The most lockdown state in the world. Can't get [censored] after a mighty grand final win by my beloved Dees is a bummer I suppose I'll have to do it at home.

Love how you've blocked me but still trying to throw a couple of haymakers. 

I'm literally living rent free in your head.

The above post doesn't change the fact you really are a piece of [censored] stain of a human being and a genuine oxygen thief @WERRIDEE

10 km family bubble introduced, does this change anyones thinking?

Not really. We are still in curfew and its only 5 people from 2 households outdoors if you are both double vaccinated.

Makes no difference for the actual grand final that will start at 7:15pm.

Fulfilling the MFCsupporter sterotype I have spent the first post Qualifying week cocooned away at Dinner Plain ( lodge owned by my Cat supporting neighbour who was not using it.),  with relaxed days skiing the summit, working on technique. The rest of the mountain was sparsely filled with snowboarders scraping and pushing the slush around. The mountain really needs some more snow which is due next Monday. I will by then be engaged in usual maintenance around the property (6acres regional)  and decking out with red and blue to shock the bulls and chooks who will be the only viewers. The week will be low level contact dependent on any restrictions being relaxed. I have a few tasks scheduled this Saturday including listening to Coodabeens, collecting the papers and a relaxed weekend secure in the knowledge we can't lose this weekend.

Next week I will continue to closely monitor demonland revelling in the advice and nformation that is being dispensed about a Grand Final participating team.This is such a rare but exhilarating experience. Contact with the many demon supporting friends and neutrals who are joining in my delight includingthe above neighbour. Knowing that I am not alone is reassuring. 

I am also hoping that restrictions will be relaxed ( I don't think Dan really wanted to impose bans but failure to obtain vaccine  has required this action). My desire would be to enjoy a return to Squash competition where I can be recognised with the same reverence that other grand finalists have received in the past. Then the Coodabeens on Saturday with the Dees as the participants will totally change he content and interaction I have.

ive got the wine sorted for the day and evening, and will distract myself during the week putting together an appropriate menu. Something easily prepared and served, relaxed but focused is what I am aiming for. I am positive and will enjoy the unfolding result. I think this match will be remembered for far longer than if we were at the G.

i will miss the contact with the crowd. One of the panellists on Q&A recently, articulated the emotion of a shared experience (related to the performing arts) far better than I can, but that shared experience will be missed. I hope fervently that we, the supporters, can join and revel in that joined experience of victory, very soon. I would hate to have to wait until next season to congratulate the players and this is why I say the match will be remembered for far longer than a normal game.

It will be a memorable day, it will be a glorious day, it is a new beginning. I will quote Trac who expressed it so well when saying the r23 win putting us on top of the ladder was for all of us supporters and meant "we could wear our colours with pride on Monday". We will be able to wear them with pride for many years to come.

GO DEES

I’m torn.

I am considering going into the local Aussie bar in Nagoya (although I am a confirmed non-drinker these days). This feels like the type of event that I should be surrounded by fellow Antipodeans.

However, I tend to avoid that joint in general. Perhaps a quiet evening at home is in order.

On another note to admin (as this does pizz me off)…

I remember the last time I benignly mentioned my distaste for Jeff Kennett, both politically and in a football sense, I got barraged with abuse I won’t repeat, and basically told I was contemptible for ‘bringing politics into football’.

After the posts were deleted, we were all warned about not ‘making things political’. I personally don’t mind slight political comments in footy threads if they are left at that (I.e. slight), but surely if the standard is we don’t bring partisan talk into footy threads, shouldn’t that apply to everyone? 🤬 Or do we only care when offending comment upsets the sensibilities of certain members of the board, they decide to react disproportionately and start a slanging match? 😡

I'll be in a corporate box at Optus cheering loud enough for all the faithful who are unable to make it.

 

Same as the prelim where I had lost my voice by half time.

Hopefully get a similar outcome. Fingers crossed.

Feel sorry for the members/supporters stuck in lock down but once in a lifetime experience to watch the Dees in a GF in Perth

GO DEE"S!!! GIVE EM HELL!!!!

I'll distract myself during the day with some work and taking the kids to the park.

I'll watch the game with 4 other Demons supporters via MS Teams. We'll shout, cheer, curse, drink and celebrate/commiserate together. It's much better than watching alone

    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
