We won the Premiership after missing the final the previous year. Surely that’s rare. Does anyone know when that last happened?

Would be Richmond in 2017 wouldn’t it?

I’d also like to know who was the most recent losing GF team to kick 6 goals in a quarter and yet still lose like the Dogs did last night.

Unfortunately all the players who played even 1 game this year could not get some sort of reward for their dedication and effort for the club.

Jones Gawn and Viney lived all the bad and only Gawn and Viney get to enjoy the feeling of joy of a premiership player for the MFC

Wonderful team. Wonderful club.  They didn't choke (unlike this sad pathetic demons supporter who walked out of the TV room at half time. Too much MFCSS).   

Yesterday I was one of a very small group on this planet who remembered where they stood on that day we last won the flag.  I was 8 years old, stuck in a kitchen in Surrey Hills, gutted when Gabelich put the dreaded Pies in front,  then stunned when we hit the front and held on (thank you Neil Crompton).

Today,  I'm just one of millions around the world who have lived the dream.  To misquote Kevin Costner from Field of Dreams...'This isn't Iowa.  This is heaven.'

Wow!!!!!!

Congrats all enjoy it.

Special thanks to the planning years ago, when we told Alan Richardson he would come to us while he was Saints Coach and he gratefully took McCartin in the draft leaving us the Norm Smith medallist. Premierships are planned years before.

We smashed the other contenders each game.

Unbelievable, we are back.

Go Dees.

My God Mr Leg we have been through a lot of crap this last 57 years. How sweet is this morning. To be honest I am a bit Flat this morning  after half a century of losing I am well equipped to handle it. Winning is a whole new ball game! 

I see there is an event in Perth today with the team. To the Supporters in Perth enjoy guys we will get our chance next year!!!!

Well, I woke up Sunday morning
With no way to hold my head that didn't hurt
And the beer I had for breakfast wasn't bad
So I had one more for dessert.

 

I feel I need some Johnny cash to keep the session going.

Theme song Verse 2 rewrite:

Oh the team played fine to win 12 previous flags,

We’re demons that no one can lick, 

And you’ll find us there at the final bell,

with the spirit of 2021!!!!

... and we all know the rest of the song.

GO DEES!!!💙❤️

I woke up very emotional this morning. 

I can't believe it - WE WON THE PREMIERSHIP!!!! 

I was so lucky to have been able to attend at Optus - it's something that I will cherish forever. 

I love this club - and boy did you test me over the last 15 years. But you really did deliver, like you said you would all those years ago.

What an amazing accomplishment by this group, and to those whom set it up along the way. 

Thank you, Dees. Thank you so so much

All last week I didn't like hearing people say, 'All I want to see is a good game.'

You know what? They were right. I think we saw a very, very good game.

Three goals in 50 seconds before 3Q time is good football

Morning Green Demon. Sean was a Glaswegian although he was scouted from County Kerry where he played Gaelic football. His nickname at the club was haggis. 

Yes, a Scot for sure. A former team-mate of mine (cricket, a game he loved) and fortunate enough to re-connect and become good friends about 4-years before he passed. Ripping bloke with a strong moral compass.

One of my most memorable and emotional moments was a 30-minute conversation at Sean's wake with his mother (Peggy), telling her of how proud he was of her - Sean spoke of her often. Peggy spoke of how bittersweet the last 6-months of Sean's life were, knowing he was going to pass but getting to spend more time with him...remembering that our game took her son to the other side of the world when he was still a very young man.

Peggy's parting words "promise you will never forget my son".

Peggy Wight...promise kept!

    DEMONS TO PACK A PUNCH FOR PRIDE by Meggs

    It’s AFLW Pride Week this round.  A celebration of people from all walks of life coming together, being respected, loved and accepted.  Since inception, the AFLW has been a benchmark when it comes to inclusivity and a safe workplace.  This legacy was a gift from the games’ founders of which Melbourne FC was proudly one.  Former Dee, T-Rex Cunningham, has designed this week’s Demons Pride guernsey, in recognition and support of the LGBTIQA+ community.  Tegan’s jumper design highlights the red and

    2 UP FOR THE RED & THE BLUE by Dees in October

    Once again, the Demons took the show on the road, this time for their first game at Punt Road Oval. A flurry of outs due to Covid protocols saw five forced changes, and the match shaped up as a test of depth, with a train-on player being the second emergency. Of course, many of the returning players themselves were only left out of Round 1 due to Covid protocols, such is the merry-go-round on which we all find ourselves. The Tigers faced similar issues, including a crucial defensive pillar in D’

    THE NEW IMMORTALS by Whispering Jack

    The moment Bayley Fritsch slotted through his fifth goal after accepting a pass from Charlie Spargo early in the final quarter of the Grand Final, the result was a given. The Demons were six goals in front and the Bulldogs were spent; the drought was over. The game itself managed to roll on with goals coming seemingly on endless rotation and when it was stopped by the final siren (the mercy rule doesn’t apply in the AFL), the scoreboard had Melbourne in front by 74 points. The sun rose on the fo

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2021 by Whispering Jack

    MUCH ADO ABOUT NOT MUCH The 2021 Free Agency and Trade Periods were billed by Fox Footy as promising a “period like no other and that certainly proved correct but not for the reasons that Network spin suggested when promoting its daily program of news from the trade desk. The truth is that the football public has endured an uneventful and forgettable fortnight unless you perhaps, happen to be a Carlton or a Hawthorn fan. The Blues managed to pick up the biggest name of the trade peri

    CHANGES 2021 by The Oracle

    Part 1: Moving right along … For the first time in aeons, the end of the football season hasn’t felt as if it passed so swiftly. We’re still living the dream of 25 September, 2021 and rightfully so — we were patient, long-suffering and we’ve earned the right to party hard (as long as we’re not infecting the rest of the state as some health authorities contend). But we’ve also come into October which in football terms means that for one segment of the Melbourne Football Club — the recru

    THE APPRENTICE by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne Next Generation Academy prospect Mac Andrew has had a meteoric rise in the eyes of many track watchers who follow the fortunes of football talent at the elite level. So much so that under the AFL's new rules which prohibit clubs from matching bids on their NGA players within the first 20 selections, there’s a widely held perception that Andrew is falling out of the club’s grasp.   Despite being buoyed by the Demons’ drought-breaking premiership, some fans are showing their a

    OUR GRAND OLD FLAG by George On The Outer

    When an AFL Grand Final approaches, supporters look for omens to help them foresee how their team will fare in the contest.   Melbourne supporters were, until just before Saturday’s opening bounce, the best in the business at looking for positives to give them hope and direction - a natural feeling after 57 years in the wilderness. So when the Bulldogs’ streamers kept slipping from the handle of the Premiership Cup as Glen Jackovich delivered it to Optus Stadium, they wondered whether it

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition th
