It's the year that brought us more Covid, climate change problems, Trump and the protests in Washington, Putin's continuing belligerence, Xi's continuing belligerence, working and learning from home, Craig Kelly and Clive Palmer, protests and a Melbourne Premiership.

So, all in all, a pretty good year*.

Happy New Year to all. Let 2022 be a repeat of the Year of the Demons

 

*Note: I appreciate that this has been a hard year for many. Please appreciate the tongue in cheek nature of this post.

 

The 2022 flag will be better than 2021 :- lets make this club a powerhouse again! 

This is only the beginning

Agreed. When was the last time we went back-back? 59&60…………….61 years.

Time to fix that.

Long as the attitude is right, these boys are too good for just one. 
i am hoping they thrive on the challenge of being beaten for many years. 
Norm is at Peace now

Let’s hope 2022 is better than last year 🏆

Sorry to be pessimistic radar but  I have my doubts for different reasons, the only upside I can see on the first day of 2022 is another Dee's flag which is not to be sneezed at.

Year of extreme emotions to say the least, thank god the Dees won otherwise I would have literally nothing positive to remember about 2021.

In arguably the most challenging season ever for the AFL competition we were awesome. Could had been a season of attrition but we were head and shoulders above the rest of the competition. Richmond fans might say  2020 was tougher but it was a truncated abbreviated season and we could have won that one too if the season wasn’t shortened.

I ran in to Christian Salem today at JB HI FI and he was really happy that the boys could win a flag for the supporters and they will be going all out to win another this year. Really nice guy and he could probably see how emotional it was for me that they won the flag for us.

Having read Captains Diary since Christmas, I am certain when Gawn's great classic book is properly and understandably made a compulsary text for VCE English students this next year, WJ's treatise will undoubtedly prove a great student resourse.

Being at the unfurling on March 16 will be great. Seeing Maxy lift the Cup on September 24 will top that.

And don't forget the distraction/relief/pleasure afforded by the weekly wins, and the attendant mounting anticipation stretching across the year along the way! 😊

That is one of the best off field highlights ever. The hyperactive assistant coach who is renowned for impulsiveness doesn't even react when it becomes clear we were storming towards the premiership.

I can't get enough of watching that.

Well said.  Tmac's career highlight - delivering the coup de Grace in a highly intelligent peice of shepherding.

    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

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    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
