We’re already talking bodily function in the first ever Demonland GF Match Day thread.

I don’t know why, but this has really hit home for me.

I’ve been posting on here (mostly garbage) since 2005 and my life has changed a lot in that time but Demonland has been a constant throughout.

While most of us are stuck in our homes it has more than been the football community we all need, so thank you @Demonlandfor giving us nuffies somewhere to vent and connect with fellow Melbourne fans.

Thanks Demonland for making the football more enjoyable, Andy, George, & Binman for the podcast - great body of work!

To all the rest of the fans on Demonland, may you end the day Deliriously Happy!!

Keep this piece of play in the back of your mind from the PF, where cats were out and looked sure to kick a goal, Demons chased desperately, and rather than Cats goal, Brayshaw smothers a pressured kick over the boundary line. 
That act of desperation when the game was over exemplifies why we win today! 57 years of joy coming up!

GO DEMONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I never thought I'd see the day of a game day thread on GRAND FINAL DAY. 

I hope everyone enjoys the occasion and we bring it home, very proud of our boys. 

Now time to crack my first beer of many to settle this nerves. GO DEES!

It has been a long, long two weeks but we made it! Today’s the day long suffering Dees fans have been waiting for. Years of lurking on this forum has shown me the despair, the anger and frustration my fellow landers have been through.  Embrace the day, enjoy the ride and let’s hope the Dees [censored] smash em! Go Dees!!!

I saw an interview yesterday where Trac said we hadn't won a premiership since 1967, which made me think. Unlike our scarred supporter base these players aren't weighed down with the baggage of the past and for the most part their knowledge of the Melbourne Football Club dates back only to the time they were drafted and placed in the hands of our fantastic football department. They are young, hungry to win and know no fear.

After believing all year, I was having a bit of an MFCSS panic last night, because as good as we've been, on the day anything could happen.  So I re-watched the first three quarters of the Geelong PF to calm my nerves.  For the past 5 years I've wanted us to finish top 4, to set us up for a genuine crack at the big one.  And now we are here.

Plan to setup a TV in my outdoor entertaining space to watch pre game shows etc while having a few pre game beers to calm the nerves have a bbq and then head upstairs for the big game.  Need to pace myself, because it could get kind of messy if I go too early.  NRL neighbors arn't going need to watch the game to get a score update.

Fellow Demonlanders in the word of Goody The Great - Lets just be us (not sure how that translates to Demonland, but anyways).  Thanks for your comradery.  Strangely, over the years, I have enjoyed the ride and hope to be back here sometime tomorrow morning posting in a delirious half drunk celebratory mood.

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.

Williams yelling out to players to get their hands off hips during drills. Gus looks fine to me. Absolutely., first two mins of match sim and his kicking is exquisite on both sides. He’s moving incredibly well.  Some observations from a match sim drill that lasted about 15-20 mins. The purpose se
