Well boys and girls the big day is upon us. Hell yeah. Dreamt that Viney and Jackson poleaxed Libba in a double tackle. 
Woke up very calm and confident. Think there’s a lot more ways we when than they do. 
Enjoy your day fellow demonlanders wherever ye may be. This is our day, I can feel it. GO Dees

'88 and 2000 I was just hoping .

This time it's belief based in reality and ability.

Our opponents deserve to be playing in a GF.

Bring it on.

Can now reveal under Freedom of information legislation (thank you Premier McGowan) on AFL Grand Final morning. That your Top End correspondents have managed to ‘negotiate’ the WA frontier and have been ‘embedded’ in the Demons campaign here in Perth.

We will endeavour as representatives of demon land to be on our ‘best’ behaviour all day and honour the traditional proprieties but there are no guarantees after the siren🚨
 

Just to give you folks back in the demon heartland some local colour.

Former captain Gary Lyon is ensconced in the Crown Casino Towers, a little too rich for us humble folk down here at ground zero in an air b&b.

We have ‘co-mingled’ as much as is possible with the troops and can report team morale is high and the preparation for ‘battle’ is at an absolute optimum.

The locals are ‘abuzz’ with the prospect of a Perth based Grand Final. With a perceptible groundswell of support for the red and the blue. 

The local media coverage with Ben Cousins redemption prominent, the Nik Nat and Nat show is in full swing. As expected the eagles and dockers don’t seem to disappear with seemingly acres of column space devoted to their post-season trivia. Just inside the back pages. 

Of the local demonland identities? 


We are on the lookout for a vintage Ford Mustang on high revs, screaming about the Swan river escarpment. But alas no sightings as yet, besides the public transport infrastructure has improved significantly since our last visit. 

When we bravely stood on the terraces at Subiaco to barrack on Robbie Flower resplendent in the Big White V.

Pennant St Dee and Chook are indubitably out there and will be in attendance. Although we are reliably informed DannyZ up early for breakfast  has apparently choked on his porridge.

The last two weeks might have dragged but in reality this season has flown by in these difficult times for a lot of people. It’s extremely difficult not to think about the result later on tonight and there’s a touch of sadness that this is the final game of the year already.

Only because if you take a few deep breaths and just appreciate how good the club has been this season and the joy they’ve given us the last 6 months you might realise you don’t want this feeling to end. Extremely proud of everyone involved at the MFC on their efforts to make a lifelong dream come true by bringing the Cup back home. They’ve given themselves every possible chance to achieve this dream and I believe they are very capable of handling the occasion to make this a reality. 
 

Believe!

Absolutely. Yesterday I watched the Road to the Grand Final video the club put up. So many moments that I’d forgotten along the way. Just the right amount of non-play related footage. Packed MCG. Empty MCG. Jones being chaired off. Tommo’s injury. Brown’s first game. Bowey’s first game. Stuck on the tarmac in Brisbane. The whole picture was painted. I started bawling my eyes out.

I haven’t had anywhere near enough sleep to cope with what’s to come today. My emotions heighten when I’m tired. Wish my tear ducts luck today, they’re going to need it either way I think.

Absolutely churning in my stomach, 88 and 00 wasn’t like this maybe it’s the reality that we are favourites, or maybe age.

So proud of this club, we will have the majority of support, I have handed out countless scarves, tee shirts, hats, flags and jumpers for friends and family to wear at the game or GF parties.  I could have given three times as much away the support for us has been that big in Perth and the requests I received.

The boys have embraced being here and their time out of quarantine has seen Perth people adopt them. I’m still pinching myself for so long from 2004 to 2017 Perth was a place we didn’t win in and we were pitied.

Now we may finally break the drought here, why not, we broke the 12 year finals drought here when we won in round 22 of 2018.

It’s game day and there’s been a lot of pain to get here but despite years of scarring making me believe it would never actually happen (even at halftime in the Prelim) I have woken today thinking it’s time.

 I want the boys to win for Jonesy, Nev, Jimmy, RDB, Sean, The Rev, Bails, Robbie, themselves and for those supporters no longer with us. But most of all I want a win for those of us who never gave up and endured the pain of this journey. You have all earned the right to enjoy this, I feel for those of you who through no fault of your own can’t be there, but I hope the boys do it for you and make you proud.

It’s our day let’s go Dees

Any chance the AAMI roadside assist tracker could break down today!

Sh*te! And the ‘Bont’ was meant to pick up Naughton, Smith and Weightman from Teddy’s hairdressing salon!

    BLINK OF AN EYE by The Oracle

    In the year 2022, we learned that the fine between ultimate success in sport and failure can be measured in the blink of an eye. The Melbourne Football Club began the year where it had left off in 2021 - as the powerhouse of the AFL men’s competition.  They steamed towards the halfway mark of the season taking all before them until their winning streak of ten in a row (17 overall since the latter part of the premiership season) came to a crushing end with consecutive losses at the hands of

    CHANGES 2022 Part 03 by The Oracle

    Part Three - Comparing apples with pomegranates by The Oracle One of the truly pointless exercises after each year’s draft is the game over which club “won” the period in question. The reality is that there is no winner or loser at the time and it’s only years further down the track when a full assessment of how the picks turn out can be made, that the winning hand is revealed. And the draft results cannot be considered in isolation; you need to look at where each club stood before the

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then
