This is all too much. I don’t know what to do now. My mighty Dees are the best team in the league. And by a f****** street. The whole basis of my supporting life is gone, because I’ve followed a team that doesn’t win premierships, for every one of my 56 years. IT’S TOO BL**** MUCH!!!!! BUT I [censored]ING LOVE IT!!!!!

I saw the 1964 Grand Final and have wondered endlessly whether my grandchildren whose houses are today decked out in red and blue would ever see a Melbourne premiership 

 

There is so much to consider and I don’t pretend to be a brilliant analyst 

Better recruiting allied with pruning of the list

A couple of wildcards - Bayley Fritsch 

For me a special mention of the daring coaching tactic of handballing forward into danger trusting in the ability of the attacking player to carry forward the contest whereas for so many years the convention has been to handball backwards (the only team I can recall as successfully countering this in 2021 was Collingwood for whatever reason)

The development through Casey that has given some young ones with talent the experience of this Cup that can be carried forward 

Also  - from today’s game : we are building for the future 

perhaps to create not a one hit wonder but something special and ongoing 

My cup runneth over and our fourteen grandchildren not to mention five children have their faith and loyalty rewarded and they have witnessed a true team triumph (without individualism)

Holy forken sheet.
The Demons just won the forking flag.
And what a way to do it.
Got concerned when Bontempelli got off the chain but then for the midfield to respond like they had me roaring.
And then to kick back and watch party time.
Just surreal.

Since I wrote “game over” in the match day thread we kicked 17 goals to one.

I clearly could see what was about to happen.

I can’t believe it, I just can’t believe it.

A huge shout out to Jayden H, Jonesy, Milkshake, the Weed, Neville J, Majak and all of the others on the list who maintained such strong pressure on all on the  field to justify holding their possie - fair dinkum, this flag would not be flying if not for you.

We've done it all year. The decoy "leads" short and backwards, and then we attack and kick it forward, trusting our boys to win the contest. And by God they did! Over and over!

Great coaching, great trust, great teamwork, great team, great club. GO DEMONS!!!!!!!!

Mate go to the shop and spend some money - it’s there

I can see the dvd version but in this day and age HD is the minimum standard - sorry just a tech head.

 

I’ll pay whatever - no question on that.

Dad and me have done nothing but hug and cry. Seriously this is one of the most emotional moments of my life. Thank you so much demons. Will never ever forget what you did for us today. 
I’ll never have kids and doubt I’ll marry, so this is the best moment of my life. And to enjoy my brothers joy together on Skype. Unbelievable.

More than happy to wear sailor moon buns for a week at work. Don’t worry expect photos btw. 😉

I beg your pardon, WHAT?

    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’

    DEES DOMINATE AT THE KENNEL by Dees in October

Melbourne is heading into its sixth season with great expectations and a degree of external pressure, with most pundits predicting finals and many talking of a Grand Final … and more.   DEMONS DOMINATE AT THE KENNEL   Whatever

    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
