POSTGAME: GRAND FINAL vs Western Bulldogs


Demonland

Recommended Posts

I might be a little discombobulated after the epic celebrations in our house. But, I could have sworn, with 5 minutes to go the commentators showed a a tally of the most possessions in a grand final. It has Tracc on 39, equal to Simon Black. I then saw Tracc handball to a teammate and I assumed he had claimed the record. Looking on the stats sheets he is attributed with only 39. Very strange. Also, Gawny’s goal, WtF? Viewed from behind the goals, it was unquestionably the wrong outcome. Also, the umpiring was absolutely appalling. 
Sorry, just had to get that off my chest so I can enjoy the win in its entirety. In 40 plus years of supporting this wonderful bloody team I’ve realised, I’ve never known this feeling. We are the champions. The anxiety of supporting a team that never wins the big dance is lifted and a contentness has settled. It’s most pleasant.

I came to Melbourne in early 1965 from England. On the boat over I experienced my first game of Australian Rules football with a film about the 1964 premiership winning team Melbourne. After my arrival I was taken to a game between Richmond and Melbourne by my brother who was a Melbourne supporter at that time.  I have supported the Demons from this day to this and never thought this day would ever occur. Hallelujah l can now die in peace.

Can't believe the turn around. Was feeling very sullen during the second quarter and was terrible company for my partner who had jumped on the bandwagon in support.

That second half... Speechless. All I could do was stare in disbelief as we slammed on goal after goal. Don't think i was any better company as I was glued to the TV in a somewhat dissociative state. 

I only wish I could have been there to share in the passion and joy of thousands of fans that have been through the pain and suffering that only demons fans would know. But demonland has done a damn good job at bringing us all together, particular through the toughest of recent times.

Thank you @Demonland and everyone else associated in running this site.

We deserve this.

I’ve just started watching the replay, it’s possible I won’t sleep tonight. I would’ve preferred to just watch the second half I guess this will do. I’m still just so happy. 

Congrats to Trac, well deserved Norm Smith. 

Fritta, simply amazing. 

Jackson, this may seem OTT but I thought him taking primary ruck duties in the third quarter changed the game. He is something special. 

Salem, brilliant and cool as ever. 

Max, captain my captain. So much love. 

I could go through the whole list but I’m just going to sit back and enjoy it. What I will say is thanks to this club for bringing it home, would’ve been special to be there but they did it for us. The Perth crowd were fantastic, thanks to everyone there. Some time in the future we will all be together to celebrate this properly, but for now I will just enjoy watching the replay and once again say thank you to everyone.

Finally my 2 sons (25 and 22) have officially forgiven me for making them support Melbourne.

It was a battle during the Neeld years and only the lure of impending MCC membership kept them on board.

But we've got them for ever now.

Did I actually see that or was it the sweetest dream ever? 

i have finally forgiven my dad.... and i'm 41

We did it!!!! I can say this objectively (hiccup) that we were the best premiership team in recent memory. Any time we got challenged, we stood up. What a great team, what a great coaching staff. What fantastic supporters.

I love demonland, I love you all!!!!!!! Best feeling ever!!!!!!!!!!!!

    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.
