Just saw this appear on my feed good explanation of what went on at the centre bounce, this kind of stuff I find impossible to pickup in real time.

 

This is great analysis. Thanks

One note. The guy narrating is a bit slow/boring so suggest you increase the speed to 1.5X or 1.75X under settings....

100% it was not written by the fable singers in 1972. 

Hundred and ten percent, Cassie!😉 I read somewhere that it was first sung by the team in 1912, and that Bluey Truscott wrote the '39 verse. I'm thinking they meant 'arranged' or probably 'performed' - 1972 was about the time technology would have allowed 'quality' broadcast at games and the VFL would have been jumping on it and getting 'official' versions for the purpose (such simple days...). I just included the entry verbatim to clarify 'old' was in the written lyrics, not just evident in the recording.

The more I watch it the more Angus stands out. Game of his life. Unflinching, played it like his last game, and when you think any game seriously could be his last, his courage was/is outstanding. 
Just took hits, stood in holes, laid bumps, ran all [censored] day. 
The mark speaks for itself. But I love the angles he runs in on like a cheeky bugger that makes the shot a whole lot easier. 
 

Inspirational stuff. 

Puts to shame all the posters on this site who wanted him gone, said he was no good, and brought him up as trade bait.

But then again, what's new.

Looked through that video, very forensic analysis of the centre square battle. My takes were Gawn just smashed the opposition rucks to set up our take aways in the 4th Q to put the game beyond doubt. In the 3rd Jackson managed to break even in the ruck contests but was able to follow up on the ground to great effect. And Viney was too strong inside for Treloar or Libba and was able to get the ball out to our receivers to devastating effect. And then we had 2 other bull, ball magnets in Tracc and Oliver. No team could stop that combo I believe.

The analyst showed how the dogs tried to counter the onslaught over the last 2 quarters but it was all futile.

Even HRH is celebrating

Damn. There’s no sound on this clip. Just imagine QE2 singing Simply The Best. 
I received this from a friend in Qld and I’ve spent ages trying to work out how to post it on here. I’m halfway there. Just gotta work out why there’s no sound.

Could have been worse....remember when Adelaide sang

I like the idea of us having a rival.

Let's tell it like it is. Our rivalry with Collingwood hasn't really been relevant for 50 to 60 years. Even with us being strong now, the stars haven't aligned to make that rivalry meaningful for the time being due to them rebuilding.

The stuff about the song might be overrated but I do get the feeling there is some mutual dislike there.

Libba was carrying on like a faux tough guy and trash talker for most of the GF. In the round 20 match up, the sledge that Gus laid on Hannan about 'thinking about all those cold winter afternoons down at Casey' was pretty brutal, and Hannan proceeded to push him over. Mayzie also proceeded to iron out Hannan during the GF. Also let's not forget Watts' and Bugg's 'You ready?' Instagram post aimed at Johannisen.

Now the sailor moon buns have long gone someone has asked me at work if I’ve “come down” yet. Not by a long shot. The AFL may be moving on to new news, but to me it’s still all about the 2021 AFL premiership

Think that's just Libba!

That's the first I heard of that Gus sledge, no wonder there was some carry on. Glad we got the last laugh.

But agreed, it will be good to have rival. I didn't like some of the class divide that people tried to build up in the lead to the GF.

"Halfway there" ??? You must be living on a prayer.

Whenever I thought about the GF in the 2weeks prior this is all I could see.
These boys smashing the "bat deeper' Bulldogs mids.
There was no way they were gonna cope with our power outta the middle.

Then I'd think about the backs.
Lever, May, Petty, Rivers, Hibberd were all gonna be too good for Naughton and Weightman.

Then I'd go and think about the forwards.
Brown, Fritta , Pickett, Tmac ...... Gawn.
Easten Wood and his no-name mates were never gonna stop those boys.

Wings .... Langers an Brayshaw relentlessly running up and down the ground.
Gawd ....

Then ANB, Sparrow, Harmes all chiming in.
We was never gonna lose.

My only surprise was the 2nd qtr.
Never saw that coming at all.

Did that really happen? Is this real? Am I dreaming?

I’m SO pleased to hear this! I wasn’t sure if it is ‘normal’ to still be in disbelief 11 days after the fact. At least twice a day I stop and think, ‘bloody hell, we actually won the flag!’ Or ‘WE are the reigning Premiers’ or similar. I don’t know how long this will continue, but I have a feeling it’s not gonna wane anytime soon. ❤️💙

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid

    NARRM BLITZES EARLY by Meggs

    The last time we played the Saints, Pride Round 3 January 2022, it was an arm wrestle for 3 quarters and a Demons highlights package for 1 quarter. Oddly familiar was our outing to Moorabbin on Sunday, except this week we are Narrm and it’s Indigenous Round.   Our highlights package was contained to a first quarter onslaught. Superior work at stoppages and our mids dominant.  We showcased our run and carry and our dynamic forward line.  With Hore, Zanker twice, Bannan, Fitzsimon and Paxy al

    THE CASEY SHOW by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons will play in the VFL Grand Final at Ikon Park next Sunday after overturning their final round loss to the Brisbane Lions Reserves and dominating the Preliminary Final to emerge victorious by 51 points.  And while the distance in standards between the AFL and VFL at finals time is admittedly a wide one and the opposition and conditions different, there were a few Demons on display who excelled to the point where one was left to ask whether they could have made the difference
