A follow on to the other clip - more enjoyable as more demons 👍

Oh man, this just never gets old. Every time I watch this (and any other post-match footage) it’s like I’m seeing it for the first time. I don’t think I could possibly love this team any more than I already do. ❤️💙

Clarrie said in an interview recently he was pretty sure he was going to the Bombers.

The mere thought of this = 🤮🤮🤮

Until we gazumped them with one of the best examples of trading up in the draft ever seen

Reckon the Hawks trading up to get Lewis at 7 (alongside Roughie & Buddy at the top end) rivals what we did

Josh Mahoney hey?  Left a terrific legacy with just that one acquisition (C Oliver)

But we could assume that the whole football dept. wanted Clarrie (especially Jason Taylor)

It was Gus with his work on the field and that interview with Gary Lyon where he talked about how this was for everyone that really summed it up for me.

He was the one that kept grinding away when the game was in the balance and then summed it up so we'll post match. Heart and Soul.

I even like what Eddy has to say in this video.  His quote that the game became the "Slaughter in the last quarter" was great.

Actually quite like Brad Johnson as a comentator.  At times he says some 'dumb' sounding things, but generally I find that his analysis of footy is intelligent, knows when to lighten the mood and have a laugh, but the thing I like about him most is that he always seems to come across really humble, respectful and not full of himself.

This is striking with just about every post-match interview. The players always acknowledge us supporters. They all seem to ‘get it’ which is incredible since they haven’t lived through the pain felt by so many of us through the decades. Maxy says for him it’s been 11 years and immediately mentions how it’s been so much longer for others. And it’s totally genuine when they say this premiership is for us. It’s actually heartfelt. ❤️💙

Not after Roosy saw his highlights Packages…..

I know an ex AFL listed player - he was coached by one R. Barassi - who lives up Wang way who said at the time Clarrie was drafted  he carried a lot of 'baggage'. I've asked him to elaborate since, and he said it was down to habits and personality traits, his talent was never in question. The lad has certainly come a very long way and I take all of my hats off to him.

I watched the replay today.

One thing i can tell you - dont pick your nose after kicking a goal in the GF.

Just watched it myself. I keep wondering why I was so worried when it was happening 🤣

Just watching back that 3rd with SEN synced. It's a great call, but gee wiz, Healy needs to get his special comments in a little bit faster, he's finishing up right as the ball hits the deck for Petracca dribble, or right when Jackson has gone up for the bounce, leaving Huddo to rapidly get out his call as we're streaming forward. Though Huddo isn't as quick as he once was. I think I preferred when Whately was calling, he really focuses on each possession, gets out it rapidly without being bogged down by a phrase.

Working my way through the season on the Kayo/Foxtel replays.

Up to the WCE game in Perth.

They just jump from the end of Q3 to the start of Q4 and completely miss the drama of the "lightning break." It underscores how important context is historically. Hope someone is archiving full games with extra comments for future generations.

I'd also like to see a closing section that shows all the player votes from different comps including the Brownlow. A pre-game caption showing ins and outs would also help.

These are historical records after all.

PS: Jackson's increasing dominance in the latter half of the season is a joy to watch. He had very  few one on one duels with Naitanui but perhaps next year.

He lived on junk food before he came down to Melbourne

just the other day I watched the Kayo mini of this game. They showed the lightning break - which was mid way through the last quarter

I loved how the ump raised his arms in the air signaling that lightening was interrupting play.

    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.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k
