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!

Thanks heaps Wiz. I'm assuming now that I can at least watch it on my phone. Maybe you can also help with my other dilemma? Just moved into a new place and don't have a washing machine yet. Due to being busy, have let the clothes pile up a bit this past week, so all that I have left now is one t-shirt. It's in our red & blue, but has some unfortunate white stripes on it as well.

A) Should I burn it and go directly to the shops for a replacement? B) Take it off and just be half-naked and bare-chested for the game? C) Hand-wash some clothes now and maybe deal with being a bit damp and smelly? or D) stop being superstitious and just get on with life and enjoy our grand final win?

If anyone at the ground picks up the special badges with members surnames on them maybe stick a pic on here to give those members stuck at home a little boost. Never know, someone might see their family name.

Mmm...random stuff to ponder with 4 hours to go...

I quite like Luke as a coach, but when did he become a genius?  What's with THAT narrative in the media? 

Is Goodwin not a marginally better genius? Where's the print on that?

Just rewatched all episodes of "to hell and back" because what else will pass the time...

That moment when Maysie did the final crab walk with kossie and all the boys cheering when they got across the line on the beach. Hit me right in the feels. 

I am not okay today haha 

I remember commenting on here after that, there is a premiership in these boys. Tonight please.

Hey EO . . . he's one of us remember. And anyone that can get Boyd and Schache to play well in finals has got to have something going for him.

Not at all stifling, but I could probably survive without a t-shirt for a couple of hours. If it gets cold I have a blue jumper on stand-by. Wearing the club colours hasn't at all served me well in the past.

There’s something very satisfying about watching Brereton forced into saying positive things about us.

He’s still going on about how reliant we are on Gawn, and he’d rather the Dogs’ game plan, blah blah blah. Can’t be TOO positive. But we’ve made a grand final. He pretty much has to concede, once and for all, that we’re a damn good TEAM.

Interesting the focus on the 'grand final' experience differential between the two teams. Most media outlets are reporting 7-1 in favour of The Bulldogs...

I am surprised they have forgotten this immense occasion, and the exposure to pressure matches that this gave TMac, Nibbler, Gus, Petracca, Fritsch and Harmsey.

I'm an emotional wreck.

I've been so positive all week but I'm on edge atm.

I am so bitter and angry.

Lockdown never, ever again. I am over it officially now. Done.

This isn't living. Sitting at home on a couch, no celebration. No "being". I'm trying to make it a day of celebration but it's tough.

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??

He is mate.

So i just placed an order for the signed gurnesy for $2070 including postage. Im a part-time Aged Care nurse who really cant afford to squander money like that but what the hell.

This is a one-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

I will worry about the money later.

 

GO DEES !!!!

The wait is intolerable.

My mind keeps drifting to what should be happening right now in a "normal" year. It'd be close to half time. We'd all mostly either be at the G, at an MFC arranged event, or with family/friends somewhere.

But it is what it is.

If we lose, I know there will be certain posters who will be upset and their posts will reflect that. But a loss today doesn't erase the joy the club gave us throughout an enormously difficult year. Yes it will hurt, but I hope that Demonland doesn't flip from being the positive, supportive and embracing community it is right now, to a forum clogged with bitterness and anger.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    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.
