Maybe I’ve done this correctly (?)

I’m not sure if this works. I hope so, it’s a great read!

It's fantastic, if slightly indulgent reading! Especially if you read the doom and gloom posts during the third quarter which flip on their heads in an instant (I think we all know when that happens - Go Harmesy 😏)!

🙋🏻‍♂️I must confess: I was one of those doom and gloom posters. I was on the front porch, smoking a cigarette and crying. I think I even posted that I was done for the night. 😬

Yep, Go Harmesy! And thanks a bunch Bailey Smith!

Great to see this thread going strong

Fond memories from 2021 but I haven’t looked at a replay or any snippets for a while now. My mind has turned to 2022 and our quest for back-to-back flags. I can’t wait to get back to the G for the games

Go Dees

I’ve got a standing annual bet with a Bulldogs mate on which team finishes higher on the ladder. Been going on for about 7 years and has cost me dearly… but not this time!

It rotates between a keg party or long lunch, and today’s the day! If you live around Nortcote, there is a strong weather warning of smugness 😁

I live in Northcote too. 

Nice day for it !! Have one (or several) for me.

When people watch the replay do you just fast forward to halfway through the 3rd quarter because from then on it's just great viewing or do you watch it from the start and fast forward through the dogs goals? 

When time permits I watch from the start. Watching the Dogs’ goals and seeing them take the lead makes the turning of the tide in the third SO much sweeter. ❤️💙

Still awesome.

I tend to watch from the start.  I never fast forward.

Thank God Bruce did not commentate the 2021 GF. I just heard him in one of the Richmond premierships: "Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, YES YES YES YES!!!!"

As bad as BT is,  at lease there is none of this super-heated crap with a strange agenda.

Most times I just need a quick hit over the slow burn.
Best part is we can pick how quick the hit is.
Time to kill .... Whole game.
Time for the good stuff ...1st, 3rd and last qtr.
Snack before bed ... Last 10mins of the 3rd.
Sheesh it's late, better go to bed .... Last minute and a half of the 3rd.
Sweet dreams baby 👹🏆

Was just reading the game day thread.

It's a fascinating insight to the raw emotion of many of us . Like the granny it's a roller coaster ride.

 

Yeah I read it too.
There's some gold in there 😂

I'm abit disappointed I didn't post during the game for prosterity.
But I was far too wound up.
I didn't watch any of the pre match and even missed the opening bounce.
Didn't get my timing quite right 😥

I didnt post much as I was too stressed. I also really thought we had lost it at the 19 point down mark. 

But I was so excited at the comeback I started banging on the walls and almost put a hole in them.

I watched the first 5 minutes watched them miss a couple of shots, saw the Dogs attack, retreated to my computer to write great litracha. I checked the score at half time and tried to console myself with, Ah, well, they've come a long way. I then checked with about ten minutes to play, nearly fell outa my chair and raced back to the telly....

My Supercoach team name this year.

Nearly went with that myself 😎
Settled on Gawnys Guns.
Running with Gawn, Oliver, Trac, Salem, Sparrow and Dogga so far.
Ran with Lever last year instead of Salem.
Still might get a guernsey.
I'd love a rookie or 2 from the red an blue.

Fair enough. Could be right. No team -winning GF plays together in Game 1 next season so likely soemone will go out.

I watched a few of last season's games this week of significance, esp the big ones like with the cats, Tiges  and bombers.  I saw Hunt break up many attacks and rebound well with Langers. Personally I hope he is on the ground for the flag raising in 5 1/2 weeks time.

I was at Ceres yesterday, the other side of the mighty Merri Creek and again today, although I did at one point cross the border and had a coffee in a little coffee shop near the bottom of beavers road. Pity I didn't read this yesterday, I could do with a good dose of Smugness.

You a Northcote boy or just happen to be there yesterday. I'm an old boy ex Northcote High when Ken Emselle was a prefect at the school and Normie Rowe was a pop idol. Those were the days, now the ovals where we used to kick the footy have been eaten up by buildings.

All are waiting for the end of the game etc. 

NO MORE to be said I presume.

I watched the Dees V Bullies first round game on the weekend and I just can't believe just how good Clarry is, he just seems unstoppable.  Weed played a fairly innocuous game but he did get his hands on the ball, he just could't hold his marks, if he had he would have had five or six goals.

    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

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro

    BOMBED by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne has all but assured itself of a top two finish to the (second) 2022 AFLW season after crushing Essendon by 41 points on Sunday. It now holds a four point lead over third placed Adelaide along with a handy percentage advantage with one round remaining before the finals. The Demons opened kicking with the advantage of the squally wind that often prevails at Casey Fields and for the third week in a row, they kept their opponents scoreless in the opening term.
