Same here mate.. 

Just want to celebrate it with my old man before he departs.

Just give me one more please MFC....

My old man is in his 80's and lives 2,200km away.

After all of the times my brother and i (in our 50's) would [censored] and moan about him making us follow his Demons, the year we finally deliver is destroyed by the Covid drama.

I too am hoping we can salute again. I will even forgo being there in person if I can just sit beside him and cheer the team home together one time before he leaves us.

I get this but nah [censored] it - I want plenty more, not just one. I'm hungry and greedy for success, I want us to win so often and for so long that other clubs despise us out of envy and jealousy. I've been wanting that my whole life and now it's so close I can taste it. Keep 'em coming Demons until we take our rightful place at the top of the pile.

Nope just had his morals, judgements, and philosophy and nothing would change his mind. Staunch to his benefit and detriment…  

Same thing. (In my eyes)

Haven't seen it yet but don't feel I need to relive all the pain ..... Again.
Even during the finals last year.
They couldn't give us anything without highlighting how our history is has been littered with disasters and disappointment.
Just give me an hr and a half of the good stuff.

That was great, I do wish Garry Lyon could stop worrying about being so biased at times and just came out and said that grand final was the most dominant quarter and half ever played in the history of the sport.

I guess Nathan Jones is biased too because he said it was "only" the most dominant minute we played that year.

Unfortunately I missed the documentary due to work commitments.

Hopefully, it will be available on Kayo or even on YouTube?

We really have suffered more than most our football club.

Now, finally, after 57 years of pain, our beloved Melbourne Demons are reigning Premiers! But it still feels a little hollow until we can repeat the glory at the MCG with another Premiership.

Fingers crossed we can achieve this at our spiritual home ground the MCG and as many of us as possible can be there to enjoy it with family and friends.

GO DEMONS IN 2022!!! 🔴🔵👹

Personally I could have done without the history lesson for the first half but I guess it needed context. At least they won’t have to include it all again in next years one.

So I’m watching this with my husband who is a recent arrival to the Melbourne supporting club thanks largely to me refusing to marry him if he didn’t get serious about AFL and Melbourne… when that Geelong loss was shown and then that stat was mentioned, he turns to me and goes “how is it possible to be this bad?”

He has no idea. Bloody bandwagoner!

Mr. and Mrs. Jaded’s wedding vows:

… For richer or poorer

In sickness and in health 

To barrack for Melbourne

’Til death do us part.

You joke like I didn’t mention that he has to barrack for Melbourne in my vows…

My best friends also made a speech in which she said this will only be the happiest day of my life until Melbourne wins a flag. She is correct. A prophet is she.

And she’ll probs also tell you that Melbourne winning a flag will only be the happiest day of your life until you have a baby. Don’t believe it. Take it from me (and Maxy): the flag trumps all. 😁

1000% winning a flag is way better than birthing some life sucking monster.

So bloody cut at Foxtel right now. Out of the house so planned to watch on Foxtel GO using my account. Didn't finish working until 9:30. Turned it on and....and the bloody app doesn't let you watch more than 30 minutes earlier. So i can't watch from the start. I swear, the logic of some of these apps is bizarre. 

Guess I have to wait until it's on demand.

Get rid of Foxtel and spend that money on Kayo. That show (and every other show and game) available live or from the start. I still resent the money but at least with Kayo I am getting exactly what I would have wanted out of Foxtel.

Aside from Jack Viney having a crack at his teammates when he was 18, there was nothing really ground breaking in the doco. It wasn't enjoyable reliving our tragic history post 1964.

I think Garry Lyon used a bit of poetic license when describing Jimmy Stynes running through the mark in the 1987 prelim. Dipper was the Hawthorn player who was unmanned in the forward pocket. I was behind the goals and screaming for someone to pick up Dipper, when Jimmy ran to man him up. And the siren hadn't gone at that stage, as Garry described.  The players who all missed gettable shots at goal, which would have sealed the game, were more at fault than Jimmy. Yeats, Jackson, Eishold and Campbell were the real culprits.

I would have loved to have seen a doco that just related to our entire 2021 season, with behind the scenes footage that included Darren Burgess' training methods. As a sports lover, I find the ESPN 30 for 30 docos fantastic. Unless you are a Dees supporter, this was a pretty average doco to be honest.

Yep, agree. Even with 1987, they skip from slipping into the 5 through to losing the prelim. Those 2 winning finals in 1987 where we belted the roos and then the swans were absolute highlights of the 1980's, but don't fit in with the 57 years of pain narrative.

I know right?

Recently I was at my son’s share-house and his housemate asked me what was the happiest day of my life. I said the 25th of Sept 2021 and explained why (these hipster [censored] aren’t into footy so didn’t know why). 

He says, “but you’ve got three kids, shouldn’t that day be the FOURTH happiest day of your life?” I said, “Uhm…No.” He turns to my son and says, “dude, how does this make you and your brothers feel? Like you’re second-rate?”

My son says, “nah man, we count ourselves lucky to be second on her list. And that’s only coz she lists her football team as a single entity. If she were to individually name each player and the coaching staff we’d be lucky to scrape into her top 50.” 😆

    PREGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    The Demons return to the MCG to take on the Saints in Round 11 on the back of two straight losses in a row. With Jake Lever out with concussion who comes in and who goes out?

    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

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
