Hope you've got some of that fancy Liqueur  on hand picket .

No doubt you'll be quaffing at a furious rate!

Anyone know who the commentary team is?

The call makes such a huge difference to the broadcast, particularly on a year like this with so many committed members unable to attend the game

Hopefully in 20 years we'll still get goose bumps from our "Leo Barry, you star!" moment

Tell them you'll buy the red and blue ones off them at a discounted rate once they lose.

Oh or just shoot all the white ones.

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??

Definitely a Melbourne supporter. Last saw him in the Qantas Lounge in 2018 post preliminary final in Perth.

He was also donned in his MFC scarf on Fox the other day with Mike Sheehan.

Dear AFL

Not a fan of a twilight/night grand final. Please just haver it oat the day. I don't care about the lights at night. 

I've got double nerves today because I will be watching the storm at 4 to hopefully see them get into another grand final. At least that will break up the arvo and waiting until 7:15. 

I just keep thinking how this is it and think can that really happen. We need to take our chance and we need to grab it because it may not come around again for awhile. I keep picturing Maxy holding up the cup my god if we win I think I will be in shock.

can you tell me more Wiz? 

I read that it’s been a last minute deal. Jump onto your AFL Live app and there is a new banner for the live stream. I’ve included a few screen shots below!

Hopefully this works for you!

The light show at the ground will be pretty special tonight at Optus as a new state of the art stadium. Agree in general though. 

As a WA footy fan I love getting to the pub for lunch on grand final for a 12.30 bounce.

The fact that we haven’t seen each other for months, it’s been so emotional. As we hugged, we had tears in our eyes. I doubt it’ll be our last today

Special shout out to all people who couldn’t make it to their loved ones today

Actually had a decent nights sleep, but I’m filled with anxiety and excitement now.

The more I think about it, the more I worry this is really a 50-50 game. I am desperate for us to avoid being the St.Kilda of 09/10.

However, after watching Adem Yze on Fox before it sounds like the boys are nice and relaxed. We’ve played this time slot before, we’ve played a prelim on this ground, we’ve had an extra weeks break.

I haven’t allowed myself to think about after the siren, all my thoughts are on the game and winning that, but geez, imagining Max holding that cup up is just so tantalising!

You have to accept that the dogs finishing outside the top four......travelling to Tassie......then Brisbane and then Adelaide and winning is a pretty good effort. But having them then travel to Perth and winning number four would be highly unlikely. 

I don't think I could handle a close game. All purists of the game would argue of course that's the basis of a good gf to watch. Not for Mfc supporters. Maybe a close one in 2024.

Thanks sue. But I don't trust that advice at all. Everything I've read is about the restrictions. Surely there would be other people in my boat without a TV and laptop alone, and they would cater some information in that direction? 

If you don't have a latop, you could use a browser on your phone with 7plus if desperate.  I see the AFL app has annoucned it is showing the GF. - presumabl they are making it free. and not just for subscribers.

    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
