Was going to put this in London Demons group. Mods, maybe merge?

The Deeaspora is up and about. Those of us around the world surely feel for all the Melbourne based crew, not being able to go watch the GF at the G. But also, welcome to our world. Fortunately, we all live in an amazing time in which we can connect, cheer and, hopefully, fall into flabbergasted heaps of joyous rapture wherever we are, together. 

If anybody is in the Netherlands and wants to go through this with fellow tragics, send me a PM. Similarly, wherever you are in the world, use this thread to connect with other Dees fans. [censored] i am so excited, nervous, but also quite sure that this is it, and we are all in this together. Go the Demons and love to my Dad who lives in the US and who peruses these boards. This is what all those rainy, ****ty days at the G watching us getting belted were for.

Thanks AmDamDemon.  I am in the British Virgin Islands.  Pretty sure there are no other Melbourne supporters here (but would love to be proven wrong!).  I will be watching the game in the early hours while on a Zoom with friends and family.  Then planning to spend the day drinking at the beach, win or lose.  If there are any Demons out there, come on down to Cane Garden Bay!

Great post. It is really hard being so far away from all of this, but knowing we are all in it together does make it marginally easier. I hope you find someone in your neck of the woods!

Am based in seattle, so if any seattle based dees pleas reach out...Would love to find someone to share in all of this with!

Love the idea of how far and wide we are spread. Gonna be some tough time zones and some confused neighbours in early hours around the place. The WA twighlight game is perfect for Europe, game starts just before midday, almost like normal. Go Dees

I’ll be watching from Hong Kong!

(Truth be told, I don’t want to watch it at all; would much rather be sedated to 3 hours and enjoy the replay)

I  think I share your feeling to be honest - every time I payed attention live to the game we played this year  we didn't do so well.

You guys in Japan and HK  should swim over here to Taiwan - there's no sharks - the locals swear. ;)

What's the best way to see the game live that the international community recommend?

I'll be watching live at 5.15am in Charlotte, North Carolina.  

I've watched every game live this year, at ridiculous hours, so not gonna change the routine now!

Can't wait.

We’re lucky to have the ABC Australia Channel here which cover some games, but I mainly use the ‘Watch AFL’ app which stream all games and events internationally.

Bonsoir from France.
I don’t think there are other Demon supporters near me, but that hasn’t stopped me from flying the scarf in the car, putting that little membership sticker on the number plate and wearing the MFC cap whenever I go out. Plus I’m wearing the jumper around the house.

Big screen awaits. Just need the cheese platter. 😀

Vive les Démons.

I'm in Paris (south), and I know there are a few others around. Not sure I can face Belushi's or Café Oz, will just watch at home, though I think there's a bar/café somewhere that's doing something as well.

Does wearing a demon hat at Pussers classify  one as a local demon ?

In the Middle East, somewhere very sandy. And there goes a goat in demons gear. Kinda fits. Plenty of Aussies watching at pubs, even a few demons fans among them.

Cheers from Sihanoukville, Cambodia

Hi Dees supporters. I've been a MFC/MCC supporter for over 50 years, and I'm currently stuck and cant get back. (Obvious reasons) 

I'd give anything to be able to get back and see the game or at least with a buch of Dees fans.

At least I bought a few things over to feel a part of it as possible.

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

    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

    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
