Thanks for that. Whoops. Yep haven't lost a game yet with him in. That's a bloody good list of eight at 21 and younger. All of them very talented players. So its exciting times. I would argue the two to really go to a new level would be Kozzie and Jackson. No surprises there. I hope we can hold on to them. But I have give a shout out to Petty, when poor Adam  went down I was quite worried about losing such a great defender but young Harrison has been awesome .I wouldn't mind seeing him spend some time up forward. I reckon he would be a great at CHf. Have we missed anyone else?

No that’s it, but I hope Bailey Laurie gets a good run injury wise, imagine if he comes in and impacts the same way Bowser has. Still 19 years old so could be another to the list.

Petty was superb but I’d argue he has another level to go to like Dogga and Kozzie. Hard to believe he’s only played 30 games, plays like he belongs and even starting to show a bit of swagger which I love. Tough nut !

Sorry that this video relates to the prelim but its just so funny. Bloke starts off trying to present a balanced analysis of his clubs efforts and then keeps just slamming them, Not too dissimilar to some Dees fans of old.

Surprised I’ve not seen much on here re EASTONWOOD but kudos on a really good career in the end.
Plagued by hamstring injuries, but on his day in his prime he took on the best fwds in the comp and more than held his own (he usually was the biggest or best tall ina very age defence) and is one of two premiership captains at his club. Well done sir.

happy four week anniversary everyone.

Thanks QD! I can use that as my reason for rewatching tonight; I just know at some point my son will say, “you’re watching it AGAIN?!”
Rn I’m paused at just under nine minutes to go in the third. Fritta has just kicked our sixth. Another 15 goals to go! Ahhh, this never gets old.
Aaaand… unpause.

An observation. I didn't truly appreciate how fast Petracca and Oliver are. Time and time again they simply ran away from Dogs players. Bontempelli and Liberatore couldn't catch them.

Also this game proved even more than before both Trac and Clarry are a half second ahead of the opposition which enables them to get the break with both their incredible skills.

They are ONE grabbers don't fumble and run like the wind and are now playing with a real synergy as are many of our on ballers inc. Maxy and Dogga.

They grabbed the game with Jack V who did the Libba thing and got the ball out a number of times.

JV deserves great credit and has been overlooked a little because Trac and Clarry were so good.

Jacks last 7/8 games are as good a block of footy he has played for the team  and great credit to him. Little wonder that the margin ballooned out when so many contributed so well on the biggest stage.

Many played their best games ever or equal to. 

Amazing second half effort from all the team eho clearly love and respect each other and play for ONE reason only A CUP and FLAG for the DEES.

Thsnks MFC for an unforgettable experience which I will never forget or undervalue.

Best footy I have seen the Dees play in the 62 years I have been going to games!!

Wow snd what a day to turn it on.

Lets see if we can win on the G in September in front of our fans in 2022.!!!

I’m the opposite. Since we’re premiers, no one can say anything bad about Melbourne. Not even about the last win we had. Once the season starts, we’re up for any kind of criticism again. I just want to being to of the world for the rest of this year.

Oh I think you will be pleasantly surprised. 2022 will be even better than 2021 IMHO for the Dees. I think the comp will take more than a year to catch us up, in spite of all the bluster we are hearing during the trade period from the likes of the Blues, Magpies, Dons and Cats. We will win more games in 2022 than 2021 and go back to back.

When a team hasn't experienced success in a long time there is always an element of self doubt about whether they are good enough or 'deserve' to be be in finals etc. Even in games when leading and the opposition expected Melbourne to fold on many occasions we obliged.

Now this team know what they can produce is the best in the comp I  am looking forward to this team going to another level.

Not only walking onto the ground in each game with a new confidence but unleashing their new competitive spirit to see how good each player can be. There is nothing holding them back at all. The sky is the limit.

And the fact we did this is such a team-oriented way with everyone playing their roles there will be a greater focus on doing more team things and urging fellow team mates to be the best they can be,

Exciting times for these lads and for us a lifelong followers.

I know. But any loss as insignificant as it is will be a downer compared to know. And a drought-break like this will never happen again (at least not in my lifetime.) I just want to enjoy this a while longer

didn't know where to put this,

I think I heard on the radio that the boxing day test will be capped at 75K.

If the club wants to do anything before Xmas with the fans at the G, I presume it will be capped at 75K, which will probably mean it will be ticketed, and then sell out in a heartbeat

Cant wait to take the pilgramage to the G to see the boys do a lap of honour, I think that's when it will finally sink in for me!!

Yep but just to mix it up a bit, I've been watching the prelim a couple more times because it was just such a sweeter team to smash. I'm not sure Geelong will get over what we did to them this year. Unless they recruit an entire new player group which they should probably do anyway, I think they will be traumatised for a very long time and I look forward to the the next time we meet them. I think Max should be able to wear some sort of superhero cape in our next game against them.

They tried to explain it away with tales of “gastro” but when we finished with the doggies I reckon they had to accept that we were just that bloody good that night.

That contest shouldn't have even happened. 30 seconds earlier Kozzy was strangled 30 metres out from goal ... nothing to see ... play on!! 

I'm not sure whether I have posted this before. Apologies if I have. I have a particular meeting once a month. Football is inevitably discussed. One of the attendees is a Bulldog. At the most recent meeting (a week after the GF), not a word about the Grand Final.

If the Bulldogs had won I would have said to Mr Bulldog "I was disappointed about the result, but congratulations on the win".

I expected nothing else from Mr Bulldog. He is not a quality person. 

 

Ha ha ha major case of sour grapes. 

Winners are grinners and losers can f… off. 

Next time you have a meeting I would bring up the GF with another colleague in front of this [censored]. Live it up and enjoy.

Let’s hope minor elements of the grand final, such as

“who ran past for a handball receive for Melb at the 13 minute mark of the 3rd quarter, on the right half forward flank?”

come up in trivia nights we are at :- otherwise I am starting to judge/doubt myself re the amount of times I have watched the replay.

Am not done yet either. It’s still not boring.

Some how I get fb updates from GFC. They’ve picked up a 30 year old Hawk reject and shunted a 20 something kid to Freo. 
Their fans are loving it. They see it as an honour they’ve made so many Prelims (never mind the losses) 

GFCSS - long may it continue

    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

    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).

    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

    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.

    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 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

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees.

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s
