Raw emotion that all of us could relate to. Hard not to tear up

I've got to agree, this fella's expression is wonderfully raw and expressive. Though(?) - and this has been sitting with me since first viewing, on the night - looking at his mannerisms, I'm thinking it comes from some degree of (and I apologise for the poor choice of words available to me) disability. Others, better experienced to consider this, may have a more informed and nuanced view?

It is one of the images of the night for me.

Love it. Did anyone else notice Oliver’s terrible ball drop on that last goal? Sometimes everything goes right. 😀

Yep, almost came off his shin.  Outside Fritsch first goal the others all went straight through the middle of the goals, even Petracca's dribble kick right through the middle.

I hadn't noticed Daniel's reaction to Oliver's goal before: hands out 'how do we deal with that?!?'...

The doggies were totally gutted.

One can only speculate ( fantasise) about the possible carnage if the quarter went for another 3 or 4 minutes 

It kinda did, we kicked two in the first two minutes of the last meaning we kicked 5 goals in three minutes of play! extraordinary really.

Magnificent 

Spine chilling

Gets me pumped up every time 

very emotional 

when Clarry raises the arm and signals after the goal, that’s when I dared to dream that we’d win 

and we did 🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆 🏆

Oliver is the best player I have seen in my lifetime for the dees. When he raises his arm I knew we were home.

I think that guy kinda represents how just about every Dees supporter was feeling at that point in time. Almost like not knowing how to feel about what was unfolding in front of our very eyes.

My son with his big ol’ psychology degree reckons that that action of putting one’s hands around one’s neck harks back to caveman days as a sort of protection mechanism. Only, in this case it’s not the body (or head) needing protection, but the heart, so to speak. Maybe he’s right. After all, we Demons tragics, more so than any other team’s supporters, have had a need to develop a means of bracing ourselves against the inevitable heartbreak. 
Don’t forget to tune in to next week’s episode of Armchair Psychology… “How to reconcile with the fact that Essendon will always be a thing despite how much you wish they’d burn in hell for all eternity.” 😁

Agreed. Watched it and at the very end Daniel looks to his midfield teammates and asks “how am I going to stop that!!”  He had three players running at him and was helpless to stop our avalanche.  Daniel - the little man who thought he’d take on big Maxy … who’s laughing now !!! Bang bang bang bang. 🏆

Yea, was a look that seemed to say a lot. Mostly it encapsulated the fact that about 15 mins ago they could see a flag looming to it being taken away from them. 

None of us have really seen a last minute of a quarter of footy like that. I think the dogs fans would have had trouble processing it. Suffice it to say, they must have felt this was the end of their 2021 footy dreams. That it just happened so quickly and seemingly out of the dogs players hands would have been quite surreal. If I was a dogs supporters i would have been frustrated giving up a last minute goal (Tracs) but the other two would have seemed very unreal. Im pretty sure it knocked the stuffing out of the dogs players because we scored two more quick ones in the first two of the last that seemed quite easy. 

Im not sure why I was so worried after Bonts third and the dogs 19 point lead. I think it was that they had scored so many goals in a row and we gave up such an early break. But prior to that we certainly had plenty of shots on goal that could have been majors. We were inaccurate, where the dogs snaps (and there were a few) all went through the middle. Despite the 19 points we were at least equal in terms of shots if not more. But the dogs had a lot of luck, including the Lions games with many calls going their way. I think they must have felt a three quarter time it had all gone. On some level the Dogs must have believed we were the better team and that minute was a wake up call to the fact.

Its one thing to win a flag but to win it like that almost makes it worth the wait. But Ill take another next year,

Excerpts from the Bulldog's game days thread on bigfooty. To relive the unfolding horror through their eyes one more time ...

 

Bont's goal:

BONT!!!

Captain!!!

King Marcus

Pressure pressure pressure eventually it gets to everyone

thats the moment right there

Harmes to Fritsch:

Fumble by Baz unfortunately leads to that

Why did Hannan give that handball?

Felt like we were one goal away from making it bloody hard then

Fritsch again:

And just like that all the hard work is gone

For fu** sake

Ffs

Brown:

Far too easy out of the centre there

Gah

Oh for fu**s sake

What the hell are these guys doing

In three minutes we went from complete control to fighting for it again

We need to get this centre clearance! I’m sounding like a broken record. Geez that Baz fumble is now being paid for dearly

Brayshaw:

FMD Daniel

All that hard work vanishes into nothingness

We're starting to look a bit tired.

Petracca:

I am so done with English SPOIL THE DAMN BALL

That was just too good by Petracca…. He has just been killing us all game

I think we’ve found a way to turn a very good position into a pretty bad one

Reckon we’re in a spot of bother here and it’s through poor execution.

Sad to say it's over. St. Kilda in 2009 is the only team in the AFL era to lose after leading at 3QT in a GF.

5 goals in a row

How are we in this position

Sparrow:

That’s it.. done

Mids getting embarrassed. How easy can these clearances get

Cannot stop them getting it out of the centre

There goes the premiership

Yeah it's over.

Game over fellas.

Oliver:

Eesh

No way ! That’s ridiculous

WTF happened?

Can we play a defensive player in the centre square for crying out loud

Oh, my. Oh, bloody my.

What the actual fu**

The dees are walking straight through us

We can’t come back from that

Well that was a really disappointing end to the year

Was a great year, bad luck fellas

Honestly can’t believe some of those clearance efforts. In a grand final.

Wow

All over just like that..

Have we ever scored 5-6 goals that quickly ourselves? We look done.

That was bloody impressive.

He was running towards goal at a slightly wrong angle  for a right footer. He checksided the ball a bit to get it on target. If he kicked it straight it would have gone for a behind.

You've got me thinking. Which commentator (of any sport) would I like to have heard commentating on the last half of Q3? Maybe Murray Walker from F1 for excitement? or Phil Ligget for precision?

Martin Tyler would’ve been good to listen to. Special voice.

Tracc’s pick up in the middle before Sparrow’s Bomb. 
watch that over and over….

My magic moment is just a little later when Jackson plants a handball so perfectly in Oliver's grasp that he doesn't even need to change his rhythm as he runs towards goal. That is as precise a single piece of play as I have ever seen.

I've been looking for "down the ground" vision of those goals - taken from behind either goal.

Has anyone seen that around?

 

 

Great question! I was hoping by the nature of 'Every Angle' in the title of this thread, that the down the ground vision would have been part of it...alas.

A fascinating thing for me with those comments is how quickly their supporters seemed to concede that they were done. As early as after Trac's goal at which point we were only a couple of goals up.  I only started to relax about 4 goals into the last quarter!

    DISMANTLE by The Oracle

    The Flagmantle dynasty has been in train for less than half a season but on Saturday evening at the MCG its hopes are set to be derailed when it meets the team from Narrm. If you’re still living back in the days before the start of the 2022 AFL season then my opening comment probably makes very little sense. This is because very few people had heard of Narrm at the time and most folk could not then have anticipated the AFL’s early season rise of the Fremantle Dockers whose fans went into r

    THE CALM OF NARRM by George On The Outer

    In a fitting opening to the Doug Nicholls Round, the haunting voice of Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu spread calm around a near empty, misty Docklands stadium. Meanwhile, the Narrm players, quietly warming up pre-game, seemed to take on the same calmness for their upcoming task against North Melbourne.   Sure, this was the top of the ladder premiership side playing the lowly cellar dweller, but this Demons side is now one who just quietly go about their job, and slowly ever so slowly and ca

    NIGHTMARES OF NARRM by Whispering Jack

    Narrm Time has arrived in our city as the Melbourne Football Club takes the name Narrm Football Club as part of the 2022 AFL Sir Doug Nicholls Round. This week will see the reigning premier pay respect to the region the club calls home — the land of the Wurundjeri people and their culture, language and memory. The team will wear its indigenous guernsey designed by Wurundjeri/Dja Dja Wurrung artist Ky-ya Nicholson Ward and what better way to wear it than with a win over North Melbourne Football C

    WESTERN SUNSET by George on the Outer

    It was the top of the table Demons who inflicted their highest ever defeat of the Eagles, thereby ensuring that the sun has finally set on their long dynasty out West.  The final margin was 74 points but it was the final quarter barrage of seven goals which definitively signalled to the meagre West Coast opposition and supporters exactly who was in control.  That was after a similar six goal to one opening quarter, but hey … why not boo and complain about every decision that went aga

    ON THE RAMPAGE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons had it easy on a windy day under sunny skies at the home of the VFL Kangaroos at Arden Street on Sunday. They caught the hapless Roos who were badly depleted by injury on the hop and disposed of them with little trouble. It was the second time in consecutive seasons that Casey inflicted a 100 plus points defeat on the Roos who had no answers for an opponent on the rampage. When the game started, Casey was without three important forward line components in Mitch Brown, Ka

    On Sunday, when the Melbourne Football Club returns to the scene of the club’s most famous victory of the 21st Century, the feeling out there on the ground will most certainly be different. The dying moments of the night of 25 September, 2021 at Optus Stadium marked a team rising to the level of a Phoenix, bathing in the cheers and adulation from an adoring crowd in the wake of their premiership victory after so many years of hardship and desolation.

    TO THE SWORD by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons closed off their game against the Southport Sharks with a comfortable 30-point win off the back of a monster six goal opening term in which they put the Southport Sharks to the sword and kept them scoreless.  Despite losing Toby Bedford to AFL medical sub duty, Majak Daw and Bailey Laurie, the Demons still fielded a strong list of 13 MFC players and also managed to blood two more local newcomers in Tyler Edwards and Tom Macrae after adding four debutants last week.

    NO HEAVEN FOR SAINTS by George on the Outer

    Just when St.Kilda thought it was heading toward Saintly Heaven in Season 2022, it was brought crashing to earth quickly by the ruthless Demons machine. It wasn’t a long drawn out process before the Saints discovered how fragile they were. The Demons simply took the game apart in the first quarter piling on four goals against a paltry three  behinds. Even when Membrey was going to score a major right on the ¼ time bell from 15m out in front, he failed to bypass the outstretched hands of Har

    COVID PROOF FENCE by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne fans breathed a sigh of relief last Saturday when their team managed to beat Hawthorn and the Covid19 outbreak that left it without coach Simon Goodwin and five premiership players – Luke Jackson, Kysaiah Pickett, Tom Sparrow, Harrison Petty and Alex Neal-Bullen. The 10-point win was meritorious not just because the Demons overcame the loss of the coach and key players but also due to the way in which they survived the tension surrounding the club in the 72 hours leading up to the

    The Casey Demons overcame a bout of goal kicking yips and a last quarter Box Hill Hawks comeback to record a thrilling 7 point away from home victory on Sunday. With senior affiliate Melbourne fighting a Covid breakout and some injury concerns to their listed players, Casey turned to youth and called up locals Zac Andrewartha, Matthew Johnson and Harvey Neocleous to join Matt Buntine, a local product who was part of the inaugural GWS Giants list.  The team made a slow start but took co

    DEPLETED NOT DEFEATED by George on the Outer

    With Covid 19 ravaging the club, forcing the absence of five players from last week and some more premiership players still sidelined or returning after isolating, it was certainly a depleted Melbourne side that turned up to front Hawthorn in their Round 7 match up at the MCG. Normally, when a team loses ¼ of its soldiers, you would expect a less than favourable result but after the Hawks opened up a 2 goal lead in the opening minutes (and indeed, it could have been more) the Demon machine
