QUIZ - Round 23 Last Two Minutes. Test your memory!

Recommended Posts

In the aftermath of Round 23 and trying to distract myself from the nerves of the impending finals series, I put together this quiz.

At the time, I was thinking, "This will surely be the highlight of the season, what could possibly top this?" (I wasn't allowing myself to think too far ahead).

I was also thinking, come the end of the year, if we'd been bundled out of the finals in some devastating fashion, it would be nice to reflect on this great comeback. And I thought people would have good chance at some tricky questions after likely dozens of viewings - of course, some of that may have been erased by hundreds of viewings of another pivotal few minutes since then!

So, for your entertainment, a 21-question quiz about the minutia of the last two minutes of Round 23.

Test yourself, test you relatives on Christmas. Post your score here!

NOTE: Questions refer to the Channel 7 broadcast and widely circulated information post-match.

Got 10 right in 4 mins 37 secs

I've looked at that sequence more than any other for the season including finals. Thought i would do better. Great questions though. I doubt anyone will get more than 15 without having to refresh they're memory beforehand

I got 12 right in 3mins 55 seconds. I should’ve got 14 except I was going too fast, and twice  hit on the wrong answer. Well, that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it. 😁

Thanks very much DiO.

Alas I did poorly but enjoyed doing it.

Gee that was a ripper of a game despite the umps pinging Gus for insufficient intent which was a howler. I'm so glad that Lever didn't just go the roost which given the clock time many players would have. Cool head is Jake.

The look on Hawkins face when Max marked was fantastic. He was so angry.

I know score wise there have been bigger comebacks but at Kardinia park and the top spot at stake it will go down as one of our best.

10 correct, two of which were rank guesses. Enjoyable quiz, well done. 

(SPOILER AHEAD)

I was going to protest being called incorrect at the collision question when I answered Cameron and Henderson - then I remembered that was earlier in the quarter, and there was one involving Dangerfield and someone at (our) half forward. Amazing all the little details you forget.

14 correct.

To be fair I did rewatch this match about two weeks back. Still lol at Richo getting worked up on commentary “you’re trying to win the game?!”.

“… you’re trying to keep it in.”

Poor Richo had to keep his composure while the rest of us were free to scream blue murder. 😆

Yeah that was a deliberate trick question on my part. Had to celebrate the fact that there were two almost comical collisions like that in the quarter!

  • 2 weeks later...

After over 300 attempts, here are some quiz results.

Average score: 44%

Not surprisingly given it was a trick question, the one that tripped people up the most was "Which two Geelong players collide at a crucial moment?", with many (58.7%) selecting "Cameron and Henderson", which didn't happen in the last 2 minutes, instead of "Dangerfield and Simpson" (14.2%).

An impressive number (22.8%) were able to name the order of players in a key handball chain - I thought this would be much lower!

The highest scoring questions were "Which two people are shown chatting as Gawn prepares to take his kick?" (91.4%) followed by "What does May say to Gawn after he takes the mark?" (88.4%).

I'm putting together an epic Grand Final quiz, which I'll post shortly.

    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

    RISING TO PHOENIX by William from West Perth

    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. This time around they can expect a main

    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

    YIPS by KC from Casey

    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

    NO COMEBACKS by The Oracle

    Q:  How do the Hawks come back after being 32-0 early, leading at every interval and then conceding nine goals in the last quarter to lose to the Swans by 41 points in the comfort and safety of their second home down in Launceston? A:  If they’re playing the Demons at the G off a five-day break, there are no comebacks. They simply won’t come back! That’s the short form preview of the Melbourne v Hawthorn match up at the Home of Football this weekend. That is not to dismiss the you
