I'm getting edgy. Almost midday here in Perth. Still 5 and a half hours to bounce.

At what point is it OK to crack a beer? Need to settle the nerves but also stay sober enough to find me seat.

I'd say 3pm otherwise you risk being hammered by quarter time like I was before then 2018 prelim

Still in shock this is happening, I’ve been a Dees fan since I was 5 (I just liked the colours) and couldn’t stand Freo or Eagles. 
 

This team has put me through some psychological damage, bullying wearing the Dees kit at footy training and pure heartbreak after games like that loss to Ess in 2013. 
 

But here we are and I am so damn pumped. It’s a beautiful day here in Perth. I can’t wait till first bounce and hopefully the nerves will settle. I’m confident we can get it done. 
 

Feeling for you all back in VIC, but I’ve converted a bunch of WA fans to Red and Blue today. 
 

I’ll be 100% losing my voice today. 
 

Let’s go. 
 

Dees by 22. 

The pro Melbourne vibe in Perth is significant....so the Demon noise will be loud and strong tda.Great weather and lots of excitement

Mine will be at 4, got a couple of 17 year olds so need to set some kind of example. Mind you if we win all bets are off!

I have so many different thoughts going through my head. I fear the dogs will get off to a fast start and we can't catch up, I fear they will target max & our younger players & I fear we won't take our chances. Maybe I'm just reliving 2000. 

On the flip side I'm still saying to myself we are in a grand final & still can't believe it. We just have to start well & take our opportunities. I'd love to see browny kick a bag & kozzie dominate

I’m certain that Rob Sitch is a Demons supporter, but I’m sure I just saw him finish his American News segment on the ABC News channel, shouting “Go Dogs!!”… what’s with that??

I take my hat off to you.  On DL since 2013 and managed such restraint to never post.  Your maiden post today is a beauty.  Thank you.  I literally laughed out loud.  

Very welcome laughter it was, a temporary stay of tears of the many heartfelt posts on here.

Sage advice chook!  

I'd also suggest that od opens one his famous single malts and partakes of an early libation - for medicinal purposes of course.

Just got the word - Jayden not the sub. You'd figure it's JJ.

Got word from where? Considering that the decision isn’t announced until one hour before the game, you must have an inside source?

The dogs woke me up too early after a late night...

Made a big breakfast, then trimmed some branches in the backyard until I felt leaning over on the ladder to get that last branch was pushing my luck on a Demon Grand Final Day. Mowed the lawns, took the dogs for a walk. Went for a ride via the local brewery to pick up a growler of their finest to add to the already overflowing fridge.

On the beers now, game time seems a long way off.

Go Dees!

Arrived at my dads. Never seen him this excited. Yeah even wearing the Halloween nurse costume (thank goodness I wasn’t stopped by police! Dunno how I would have explained that) as I am official a ‘carer.’ 
This could be the best day of our lives or the worst. Just so glad we could be together. Brothers are on Skype. It’s a real family affair ❤️

Yep. I've finally been broken, and woke up with so much resolve. I love them all, and it has given me renewed respect for all the players that haven't quite made it in recent years. Everyone has contributed, in their own way. 

Could even say that about Demonland😎

I've been able to keep myself distracted. Watched the Ryder Cup this morning, went to work for a couple of hours to do some Grand Final Grazing Box deliveries and now I'm home. I went via Nathan Jones house this morning and gave him a freebie as a congratulations on his twins and career. Now I'm going to dominate the races at sandown, have my first beer in 5 weeks and enjoy the arvo

I can't believe we have a Grand Final game day thread! There's a lot happening in the world, and indeed our own state right now (Vic), so it's a bit hard to say what a time to be alive, but stuff it - WHAT A TIME! 

Go Dees! 😍

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had
