Has 186 been laid to rest?

Recommended Posts

In the grand final, we outscored the doggies by 93 points in a quarter and a half.

Extrapolate that for a whole game (not real but for comparison purposes) and that rate of outscoring would equate to 248 points.

When it happened to us, we were at the lowest point of our form and ability. OTOH, the doggies were in a GF and streaming until we rose from our lethargy.

I reckon that a 93 margin in a quarter and a half in a GF is enough to cancel out the memory of 186.

GO DEES

As far as I'm concerned.
Everything has been laid to rest.

Apart from my undying hatred for Essenscum, I'm at peace.

completely put to rest. I think the pain we inflicted on Geelong this year as well as winning a flag fully closes that chapter. 

proof in point. when i think of Geelong now , I smile broadly and notice my Geelong friends grimace a little when we talk footy.

Round 23 or the PF is all that’s left in my memory of them. somewhere in a galaxy far far away i hear that the world was once temporarily out of balance re Geelong and Melb but the  equilibrium is now restored.

A Grand Final has gone some way to healing the years of pain :)

Returning serve to the Cats at Skilled Stadium would have me walking on air.

a 3:nil season vs cats and a convincing premiership has heralded the dawn of a new dynasty, the demon renaissance

186 is now passe and has now been relegated to the history of the demon dark ages

long live the dees!

NO, until we beat the [censored] by 187 only then I will be satisfied. 

How about by a kick after the siren after being 7 goals behind at their home ground , to deny them top spot on the ladder at season end?

Unfortunately for us poor MFCSS sufferers the tragedy of 186 cannot be fully put to bed.

However there is some slight relief in that every time we play then I just want to see us hidiously dismember them.

I don't care anymore...it's old news.

We won the 2021 Premiership.

Onward we go...but I think I might have a look at the 3rd Q again tonight.

This was posted at 3Q time of the GF (not prelim), but I can definitely relate to that poster.

Fortunately I like the idea of the once mighty, snobby Cats being a bit passe`. Another couple of margins of the Prelim ilk will do me fine.

If the Cats won that Rnd 23 match they would have finished top right?! They were up by 44 points at 3 qrt time and totally chit the bed to miss top spot… then we’re smashed them to pieces in the Prelim. What a horror show to finish the season let alone against the lowly Dees. 😂🤣😂🤣🥳🤣🥰

And no, no it’s not, ending this old codgers brigade chances in the next few season and belting them for the next 10 years whilst having our players being bored doing so might lay it to rest.

I am no longer haunted by the magnitude of those losses we constantly suffered when we were so poor that anyone could defeat us. I have drawn so much enjoyment and comfort from our current crop of players, coaches and administrators that I have forgiven our players weaknesses and our enemies former strengths, we are a different club now.❤️💙👍👌🤘

Such a shame it wasn’t in front of their insufferable fans.

I’d say it’s a chapter that’s over and done with. Jones and Nev I think we’re the last players on the list to have played that day (I think Gawn was injured that day). 

It will always be in our history, can’t do anything about it except for create better recent history so it just get further forgotten. Beating the Cats 3 times in a year, once after the siren to finish top of the ladder, and another time humiliating them to get into the Grand Final, is certainly a great starting point.

Will NEVER forget that piece of [censored] James Kelly pretending to fall asleep out of boredom while singing their piece of [censored] song having just beaten us. 🤬

    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
