POSTGAME: GRAND FINAL vs Western Bulldogs


Demonland

Recommended Posts

Well we’ve finally done it!

after years of conjecture, pontification, debate and both doubt and hope we are the Premiers!!!!!

Thats right , the best team in the AFL, the cup is ours and gawny  is All Australian captain and premiership  captain and Trac is a Norm Smith medalist. 
We the long suffering have our flag and I shall sleep well tonight and wake up in the morning with a feeling that no one can ever take away from me.

Go the mighty Dees!!!

I don't give a fig about dynasties, power-clubs, curses, MFCSS, how great Bontempelli is, 186, Neeld, "the benefits of losing", game analysis, mark of the year, goal of the year, recruiting, the trade period, the cricket, Covid, vaccinations, the rise of China, the decline of the US, renewable energy, or any other subject matter.

I am sitting in a quiet lounge room drinking scotch knowing this one simple thing. MFC are 2021 Premiers. 

And to all those Essendon supporters after the 2000 Grand Final - eat my shorts! You are carp and we are the best. 

WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS!!!!

I am so happy.

This team has really helped me get through this godawful year.

Imagine that.  A consistent and dependable Melbourne team, in my lifetime.

❤️💙

Solid win, bank it and then move onto next week. 

In all seriousness. OOOOOHHHHHHHH MYYYYYYYYYY GODDDDDDDDDDDDDD! WE'REEEEEE THE PREMIERSSSSSS!

'ahem'

Some notes from the game

- Petracca. What more can you say? A modern day Demon superstar

- For not the first time this year, our comeback in the third quarter can be attributed to one major change: Playing Jackson in the ruck. This kid was an absolute monster tonight and allowed Maxy to take one of the Dog's key defenders. 

- Fritsch had an absolute shocker of a second quarter but kickstarted our demolition job in the third. Just has that uncanny knack of finding space. An absolute nightmare matchup for opposition defenders. Most goals in a Grand Final since Darren Jarman in 1997! Unreal!

Can we take a moment to acknowledge Jake Bowey? This kid was playing in his SEVENTH AFL match and had 8 touches at 100% efficiency by quarter time. Was a big factor in our great start. Was playing a Weightman for a good portion of the game as well who had no influence whatsoever.

- Bittersweet feeling for James Jordon who sadly (or in some aspects, fortunately) wasn't able to get on the ground tonight as the medical sub. Nethertheless, he still receives his premiership medal and played a key role in getting us here tonight.

- May and Lever were arguably both down on their usual impact but both toiled hard. Neither Naughton or Schache were influential tonight so they played their roles just fine.

- Salem oozes class with whatever he does. I know we tied him down for five years earlier in the season, but is there any chance we can extend that? 

More to come, maybe, dunno, feel like running around the block naked wearing only my Demon scarf before I do anything else.

We did it!

It's surreal but two observations. 

How good was Luke Jackson!

This team was amazingly fit. Kudos to those responsible!

What ended up happening with Darren Burgess' contract? Is he definitely leaving us for Adelaide next season? He has obviously been huge...

Best team all year, and showed the football world on the biggest stage.

 

GO DEMONS!!!

Outanding performance and proved excellence in recovery from the efforts of the 'notably second best' contenders for the flag. Off their game expetation, with exhaustion, limited resolve or capacity, and a missing skilset that drives Premiership contention. As I said earlier, Geelong were one step away from game time;; however, they remain one setp ahead of the Doggies in terms of threats to the MFC .Farken Nice outcome of course; stunning exhsibition of the respone to '... how the helll did they do that? ... from the second Quarter. Great team effort  - but was it all that terribyly difficult?? Class won, full stop.

That is just unbelievable stuff .... but they have done similar things this year - come from behind v Brisbane, round 23 v Old Cats ....never say die.

A very long time since I have believed and trusted a Demon team so much.

12:15 and I finally make it to demonland. Last few hours have been responding to messages from from all the people who know I love the Dees. Even halfway through the third I still thought we'd win, the mental resilience of this team is the complete opposite of what it once was. No need to go early on this and should just enjoy the moment, but I reckon this is the beginning of a DYNASTY!

Good call.  Seemed to avoid all the cameras and interviews after the game but a great story and a massive contribution since he came into the team.  Such poise for someone so young.

8 players aged 19-21 are now premiership players

extraordinary

16 premiership players today are 25 or under.  Salem is 26.  Viney 27.  Gawn at 29 will play another 5 years now we have LJ.  It’s going to be an exciting time to be a dees supporter over the next 4-5 years.

I thought we were gone for all money 5 mins into the third qtr. The greatest second half I’ve ever seen. It still hasn’t sunk in yet. It’s unbelievable ❤️💙

100 points to 7 after the turnaround which must be some sort of record

Were they just teasing?

    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.
