St Kilda now have the longest premiership drought, not us


Cassiew

Recommended Posts

Just came across this video. I do feel for him, but I will admit that watching it makes me feel even better. All the things he’s saying were the same stuff I was saying for years. Seeing a team win a premiership is like seeing your best friend kiss the guy you like. You give the thumbs up, but deep down you’re thinking “why not me?”

St Kilda supporters all tell the same story of woe. 
At a BBQ,  a colleague started to outline it. My brother in law came over a month later and picked it up where the colleague left off. 
At the following year’s Father/Son camp another Sainter continued where my brother in law had stopped. 
None of them know each other, but the same sad narrative morphed

One of my biggest fears towards the end of the year is that we’d do a stkilda and blow it 

whilst the saints talk about a drought unlike us  until this year, over the past 25 years they’ve had probably at least 4 golden chances to break their drought - realistically this year was our only golden chance and thank [censored] we actually took it !

Yeah ..... Been there.
Was good though.
The envy was strong.

They had a draw in 2010 and had great chance in 2009 were they kicked 9 goals 14 points losing to Geelong 12 goals 8 points, 1997 bad kicking again was their downfall and 1971 where they were 20 points infront at 3/4 time and lost by 7 after Hawthorn kicked 7 goals in the last quarter with Bob Keddie kicking 4 goals.

Their only premiership was in 1966 by 1 point

Not going to dwell on misfortune of others. Except Carlton-Essendon/Richmond/Geelong/ Hawthorn. 
 

Incredibly hard to win but four clubs this century already done “three - peats”. Let’s take it from here and capitalise on our strengths and profile

I'm still spewing for the Saint the ball  bounced the wrong way for Milne. 

But in a way it destroyed Collingwood. They went on to win after the draw and got rid of their premiership coach who the players (brat pack) loved. They have gone downhill since.

I hope the Saints bounce back, just not during our dynasty.

They had a great coach, but they seem to get rid of good coaches in favour of former players. Stupid really

I hope the Hawks go the same way.

They have been unlucky the Saints, have had some absolute champions walk through there doors but little nothing to show for it.

And to think their only flag they won by a point.

For years I used the think that about Footscray. 2 grand finals. One win, one loss that’s that. 96 years and never finished first. Their only premiership was in 1954, before cups were introduced and no tv, so limited footage available. 

Now they have 4 grand finals and two wins. Still sad effort for a team that’s been here since 1925.

Technically, only Brisbane and Hawthorn were three-peats as the other two (Geelong and Richmond) didn't win their three in consecutive years.

And we all know that "technically correct" is the best kind of correct.   :D

As for Melbourne, let's aim higher and go for the "fourplay".  Who knows what that might lead to?

You can hear the grief in his voice. He’s guttered. 
 

After our premiership dynasty is over, I’d love for the Saints to win one… then Carlton will be the club with the longest premiership drought. I know a few Carlton fans that deserve to have that mantle and I’m just the person to remind them of that anytime we talk footy, haha. Payback!

St Kilda get rid of good coaches in favour of former players? Who?

The last St Kilda coach that played for the club was Grant Thomas some 15 years ago now.. since then, none of Ross Lyon, Scott Watters, Alan Richardson or Brett Ratten are former players...

Even back in 2001, Thomas took over because Malcolm Blight was more interested in playing golf than coaching...

What a great video. Fantastic, we are no longer compared to that Rabble. 
Seeing Rod Butters Coked off his box a few years ago in my local Supermarket, summed them up beautifully. 
All those consecutive losses against them, are now inconsequential.

That said Ratts is a good Coach, will they win one soon?

I just want to say thank you so much @Cassiew for finding and sharing this gem. This puts it all into perspective, and I’ve actually spent time in the past contemplating exactly this opposite world - what if St Kilda won one before us. I’d feel exactly like Jakey here. 
 

Ultimately we’re all just supporters with more in common than we have differences.

Yes 1 from 1 in the last 20 years is unbelievable.

Also the usual narrative is that a team needs to fail a few Prelim's or a few previous finals series failures first to harden up or understand what it takes to succeed. Roos in the 90's, as an example.

Dees effort in 2021 even more impressive. Saints had it in 2010 but no chances since , and when other teams supporters see the 2021 PF and GF master classes, many will wonder how on earth their own team is up to it for the next few seasons. (excl. probably Power, Dogs and Lions fans maybe)

    TRAINING: Tuesday 28th May 2024

    Veteran Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin returned to the training track to bring you the following observations from Gosch's Paddock this morning. Beautiful morning for training. The dew has dried, out from AAMI, quiet chatting. Maysie does his heart symbol. 7 in rehab, Turner, Hore, Sestan, BBB, Petty, Spargo and Schache. All in runners. Melky weighted and change of angles work. Salem has his individual program. White cap (no contact), Howes, Woewodin and Sparrow

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th
