I think that West Coast 1990 semi was at Waverley rather than Perth. We beat them in Perth in the 3rd last round.

I could be wrong but I think we went in as favourites in the semi Vs WC but were never in it and may have had a couple of key injuries.

It was, first final played out of Victoria was 1991 at Subi West Coast vs Hawthorn

We actual played West Coast at the Waverley Park where we played our poorest football and had a dreadful record of wins.

By 1/2 time the game was like 2018 we were nowhere WC 10 goals 5 points to MFC 2 goals 8 points we came home well in the last quarter but they won 19 goals 16 points to 15 goals 10 points lost by 30 points.

 

We absolutely couldn't handle WCE switching the ball across the ground. They had perfected a keepings off game and we couldn't touch the ball that day.

There was a copious amount of bathwater drank leading up to that game. 

The Gaz Man basically said in his book that the premise they were working on when deciding to withdraw him was that ‘he would be right in a week after we beat the Eagles’.

Hubris at its finest. 😏

Yes I know. But we were still out of gas. Those 2 Whorethorn games were absolutely full on. They were a serious side at that point 

I think my disappointment  is due to the fact we were given a fair leg up that season, bonus weeks rest, played West Coast in Melbourne when it should have been in Perth. No Jason Dunstall in the finals, it was the year he fractured his skull. We could have beaten anyone it was such an even year.

Yep. I agree. But having been in the crowd and watched those 2 Whorethorn games I was not suprised we went no further. 
They were brutal and i am sure we were still banged up, even after a week off. 
that hit that Greg Healy copped still gets me 30 years later

I've never bothered looking at the stats but do we have the longest running Elimination Final winning streak?

It's currently 2. 2006 and 2018. We lost EFs in 2004 and 2005. Surely not the record holder.

 

Prior to 2004 though I believe we'd never lost an Elimination Final.

If you watch the old replays you will often find one of my favourite commentators Ian Robertson often referring to Melbourne as “the Elimination Final specialists” Great days and great atmosphere created by TV voices like Robbo, Drew, Tim Lane et al. Dare I say unlike our current crop of self indulgent “personalities” who think it is all about them!

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
