Too busy watching the replays to post.

Watched the last 1.5 quarters again tonight. Never disappoints and we win again and again.

Maybe in a few years when the thrill and excitement wears down a bit.

Giving GF a break - watched Max v Geelong

Loving the rewatching. The umpires seem unusually loud. Maybe I have the wrong sound set up for the DVD. Can’t believe after Bont’s goal, they only kicked one more. He was celebrating like he already had the premiership won 😂

Mrs wanted to watch some crap on the ABC so I sat that out and watched the replay.  Had some quality problems with the videos so watched the 2nd quarter.  With hindsight it was a very good quarter of footy.

What I have realised is that the Dogs midfield kicked most of their goals.  7/10.

Room for defensive improvement next year?

Who was at fault really ?

Defenders or mids?? 

Clarry took care of the Bont and atelier only got one more goal in Party time !!

Johanissen took an unbelievable mark just like Weightmann  did in Round 19!! ( Our last defeat) 

Guess who provide the ladders ??

our tallest in Maxy and smallest in "" Bowser "  

Strange stepladders !! Both one great and another one in the making!!!

I have never seen such a reversal and then complete thrashing, of a team 19 points up half way through a 3rd quarter and let alone in a GF. The domination from that point by us was unbelievable. 16 goals to 1 in the last 28 minutes  of actual playing time. I watch it over and over again and am still stunned. TBH,  I could imagine it being done to us, with my MFCSS, but to win a flag that way, WOW just WOW! Thank you boys, you done us proud.

Reminded me a lot of the 1984 grand final. Though in our one it didn’t look like we were going to come back. Dons always looked like coming back in the 4th

Probably I missed it, but I can't recall any posts discussing what coaching changes (if any) were made in the second half. Any ideas?

Nah, we retained the same coaches for the entire game. (Sorry,  had to!)

Two that have been fairly well documented, which were even better than coaching moves - player driven tactical changes:

1) Oliver claiming direct responsibility for Bont at stoppages

2) Gawn staying out of the ruck when Jackson was on top

I am fairly certain that Clarrie was on Treloar when he kicked his first, ANB was on the Bont when he kicked his last, Viney on the Bont when he took a pack mark (like really), Spargo gave away an head high to Hunter, not sure of the rest....

Clarry shadowed the Bont from third quarter on but no knowledge of the origin of that master stroke.

Might have been a comment from Yze or Chico  or Goody "to keep in touch with the Bont in this half " perhaps OR Clarry giving a peep into his future coaching skills after he retires.

The Gawny "keep Jacko on the ball and I'll continue resting etc. was not a bad move either!

Onscreen this  is the chat between Burgo  and Goody in middle to late Q3 when that message from Gawny was allegedly relayed. 

That's as much as being more aggressive and all players and notably our on ball champions lifting and taking the ball on the forward side of the pack. 

Here starteth the lesson and 16 goals later we  have a precious unbelievable and thoroughly deserved and unforgettable 13th Premiership.!!

That used to be the talk of Monday, the genius/[censored] move (or not) made by the coach.....not any more

Now it seems so much more scripted; most rotations seem to be  at the behest of the performance guru, who might not even be watching the game.

And there seem to be some set rules; if player  X goes off, then player Y takes his position and Z goes....

Or the defensive 6 yelling at Clarrie to 'Stand on the Bont'

You're all giving the Dogs too much credit for their 2nd quarter.

Reckon we simply took the foot off the gas pressure wise and allowed them to do as they pleased.

They went at a silly efficiency rate inside 50 too which wasn't sustainable for four quarters.

I watched the game again yesterday . . . do other people still shout at the tele even though the game was six weeks ago and you've watch it 50 times? My neighbours must be fed up. 

 My 70 odd year Old Man is up to 32 times, he's keeping count but what makes me laugh is every time it was going to be OOB deliberate he was doing the umpires signal and yelling at the telly shaking his head and laughing.

Thanks for those who answered this.  I was aware of the Clarrie and Gawn 'moves'.  I just thought there must have been more than that. And Jontee says there may be even less.

Agree. If we'd kicked straight they wouldn't have got in front. But then we wouldn't have had the stunning unforgettable ten minutes of football and the avalanche that followed.

Why thankyou.  And if at one stage BB was at full back doing goodness knows what, perhaps it is the game style, preparation and the licence the players have been given is of more importance.

I would love to ask Goody what Burgess was saying to him during the 3rd quarter.

It was more than just a comment, as he was talking to him for about a minute.

They were discussing fitness and rotations and Burgo said that the players were fit, rested and ready to go Bang, Bang, Bang.....BANG

Burgo explained it on his podcast with Peter Brukner, Definitely worth a listen. We have lost a gun there...

    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.

    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
