Still seems hard to fathom at times, even if I have watched the replay over forty times.

I still, at least once a day, shake my head and marvel at what happened on that sweet, sweet night in September. Maybe it will completely register when round 1 rolls around. Maybe it never will. Regardless, it’s our premiership, and nothing can change that. Nor can anyone take it away. ❤️💙

So deliriously happy about our flag that I made a typo. 😱

My dvd player is getting an absolute flogging (like  vs GCS).

And did you know that the Ch 7 commentators never say Dees have hit the front?  What an opportunity wasted.

And how is this for BT nonsense - The reason why the crowd has so many Dees/Dogs supporters is because they followed these teams b4 the Eagles entered the comp. (Um that was 35 years ago)

Nothing to do with memberships been shared across the country or handouts of team colours.

Hmmnn .... Though I've been to a few neutral Grand Finals and cheered for opposition clubs you wouldn't ever see me in their colours whether they handed them out or not.

At dinner tonight up in Airlie beach in far north qld with my two daughters…..and there was another Dees family!!
The dad was wearing his premiership cap… my 12 year old daughter was in her “give ‘em hell” tshirt and I had my premiership face mask….he walked passed us and yelled go Dees!!!

Loved it 😍 ❤️💙

who would’ve thought that would ever happen in FNQ?!?

Scene: Yesterday; long, rather remote, deserted SW Gippy beach (aka Paradise btw...)

Two dots grow bigger to each other from their respective ends of this picture of isolation (the nice kind...), finally closing to conversation distance, and realisation...

Dees-capped him: 'Great to see another Melbourne supporter!'

Dees-capped me: 'Yes! Hey hey!'

Snappy.

🤦‍♂️

For a break I’m watching one of my favourite three pre covid games. 
2000 QF win v Carlton. 
Green, Bruce and Yze in the last Q. 
 

My other 2 favourites are in 1994 Final when Ox had a day out v Carlton. 
 

And 1988 Prelim at VFL Park when we stopped Carlton going back to back. 
 

Now there’s consequences and penalties for cheating, Carlton have had no success

88 Prelim.

Garry Lyon Torp that went 80 metres.

Pissing down with rain, cold and 5th row from the fence and didn't care.

Please tell me this was done in slow motion, running towards each other with outstretched arms, before twirling around and falling into the sand together, as waves washed over the two of you.

Today I was listening to the 3AW call while in the shed.
Got into the 3rd qtr and Bont just kicked his 3rd.
I think Lloyd stated that the dogs had kicked 8goals to 1 since qtr time.
How often had we got off to a good start over the years to be dominated for the rest of the game.
Man ... No wonder I was in a dark tunnel at the time watching the game live.
"C'mon .... Not in the forkin' Grand Final."

I turned it off.
Will listen to the rest tomoz when I start weeding the yard.
Hope we make a comeback.

Hoping someone can help me, I'm looking for some photos of Christian Salem from the GF and I just can't find any.

Maybe I'm just not looking in the right spot and maybe someone can point me in the right direction.

It can be a single shot, or a shot with a group where he features prominently. Thanks in advance.

Just nicked out to the shed and turned on the radio again for 5mins.
It's now 3/4 time and I've come back inside with chills up my spine.
Mind-blowing game.

    DISMANTLE by The Oracle

    The Flagmantle dynasty has been in train for less than half a season but on Saturday evening at the MCG its hopes are set to be derailed when it meets the team from Narrm. If you’re still living back in the days before the start of the 2022 AFL season then my opening comment probably makes very little sense. This is because very few people had heard of Narrm at the time and most folk could not then have anticipated the AFL’s early season rise of the Fremantle Dockers whose fans went into r

    THE CALM OF NARRM by George On The Outer

    In a fitting opening to the Doug Nicholls Round, the haunting voice of Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu spread calm around a near empty, misty Docklands stadium. Meanwhile, the Narrm players, quietly warming up pre-game, seemed to take on the same calmness for their upcoming task against North Melbourne.   Sure, this was the top of the ladder premiership side playing the lowly cellar dweller, but this Demons side is now one who just quietly go about their job, and slowly ever so slowly and ca

    NIGHTMARES OF NARRM by Whispering Jack

    Narrm Time has arrived in our city as the Melbourne Football Club takes the name Narrm Football Club as part of the 2022 AFL Sir Doug Nicholls Round. This week will see the reigning premier pay respect to the region the club calls home — the land of the Wurundjeri people and their culture, language and memory. The team will wear its indigenous guernsey designed by Wurundjeri/Dja Dja Wurrung artist Ky-ya Nicholson Ward and what better way to wear it than with a win over North Melbourne Football C

    WESTERN SUNSET by George on the Outer

    It was the top of the table Demons who inflicted their highest ever defeat of the Eagles, thereby ensuring that the sun has finally set on their long dynasty out West.  The final margin was 74 points but it was the final quarter barrage of seven goals which definitively signalled to the meagre West Coast opposition and supporters exactly who was in control.  That was after a similar six goal to one opening quarter, but hey … why not boo and complain about every decision that went aga

    ON THE RAMPAGE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons had it easy on a windy day under sunny skies at the home of the VFL Kangaroos at Arden Street on Sunday. They caught the hapless Roos who were badly depleted by injury on the hop and disposed of them with little trouble. It was the second time in consecutive seasons that Casey inflicted a 100 plus points defeat on the Roos who had no answers for an opponent on the rampage. When the game started, Casey was without three important forward line components in Mitch Brown, Ka

    RISING TO PHOENIX by William from West Perth

    On Sunday, when the Melbourne Football Club returns to the scene of the club’s most famous victory of the 21st Century, the feeling out there on the ground will most certainly be different. The dying moments of the night of 25 September, 2021 at Optus Stadium marked a team rising to the level of a Phoenix, bathing in the cheers and adulation from an adoring crowd in the wake of their premiership victory after so many years of hardship and desolation. This time around they can expect a main

    TO THE SWORD by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons closed off their game against the Southport Sharks with a comfortable 30-point win off the back of a monster six goal opening term in which they put the Southport Sharks to the sword and kept them scoreless.  Despite losing Toby Bedford to AFL medical sub duty, Majak Daw and Bailey Laurie, the Demons still fielded a strong list of 13 MFC players and also managed to blood two more local newcomers in Tyler Edwards and Tom Macrae after adding four debutants last week.

    NO HEAVEN FOR SAINTS by George on the Outer

    Just when St.Kilda thought it was heading toward Saintly Heaven in Season 2022, it was brought crashing to earth quickly by the ruthless Demons machine. It wasn’t a long drawn out process before the Saints discovered how fragile they were. The Demons simply took the game apart in the first quarter piling on four goals against a paltry three  behinds. Even when Membrey was going to score a major right on the ¼ time bell from 15m out in front, he failed to bypass the outstretched hands of Har

    COVID PROOF FENCE by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne fans breathed a sigh of relief last Saturday when their team managed to beat Hawthorn and the Covid19 outbreak that left it without coach Simon Goodwin and five premiership players – Luke Jackson, Kysaiah Pickett, Tom Sparrow, Harrison Petty and Alex Neal-Bullen. The 10-point win was meritorious not just because the Demons overcame the loss of the coach and key players but also due to the way in which they survived the tension surrounding the club in the 72 hours leading up to the

    YIPS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a bout of goal kicking yips and a last quarter Box Hill Hawks comeback to record a thrilling 7 point away from home victory on Sunday. With senior affiliate Melbourne fighting a Covid breakout and some injury concerns to their listed players, Casey turned to youth and called up locals Zac Andrewartha, Matthew Johnson and Harvey Neocleous to join Matt Buntine, a local product who was part of the inaugural GWS Giants list.  The team made a slow start but took co

    DEPLETED NOT DEFEATED by George on the Outer

    With Covid 19 ravaging the club, forcing the absence of five players from last week and some more premiership players still sidelined or returning after isolating, it was certainly a depleted Melbourne side that turned up to front Hawthorn in their Round 7 match up at the MCG. Normally, when a team loses ¼ of its soldiers, you would expect a less than favourable result but after the Hawks opened up a 2 goal lead in the opening minutes (and indeed, it could have been more) the Demon machine

    NO COMEBACKS by The Oracle

    Q:  How do the Hawks come back after being 32-0 early, leading at every interval and then conceding nine goals in the last quarter to lose to the Swans by 41 points in the comfort and safety of their second home down in Launceston? A:  If they’re playing the Demons at the G off a five-day break, there are no comebacks. They simply won’t come back! That’s the short form preview of the Melbourne v Hawthorn match up at the Home of Football this weekend. That is not to dismiss the you
