I spent a bit of time over west in the past few weeks. My first post Covid trip. They're a weird mob over there, to be sure.

I was chatting last Sat morning with the lady that ran the local cafe, out the side of a caravan parked near the beach, she had her Freo jumper on ready to go to the game. I said the Pies travel ok you know. She replied that her 11 yo daughter had told her that Freo were no good in the wet, as we knocked back a coffee watching a sea of storm clouds roll in. Mum, they need to turn the sprinklers on at training, she had apparently said that very morning. My response (after immediately txting a few mates back east to get onto Collingwood) was to tell her don't worry, you've got Melbourne next week!

The look of utter despondence on her face......priceless.

Go Dees by 25.

Demonland early birds or late night insomniacs? Caught the last rites of last evening’s SCG clash on AFL online. Back on home soil to get the big picture. Maintain the rage Demons let the winning run continue.

We have Fremantle today and the Swans next week.

What happened last time that the Demons played that combination in consecutive games?

Since Cairns we have 32 wins, 1 draw, 4 losses and a premiership!

Off to bed and get rested to watch the Dees while I have my granola and coffee in the morning. Nite all.

Sweet dreams of a Dees win. Then wake up to the real thing! ❤️💙

I'm catching a supporters bus up from the coast. In two minds to take my 6yo, leave at 1.45 - home by 10.30. Big day and I don't know who'll be more emotional! 😀

Let’s all wish Melksy the very best for his 200th!!! Let’s give him the love he deserves! Make some noise for him!

PS: y’all don’t forget to check out the awesome banner today. I broke a fingernail making that thing! And sacrificed a substantial amount of hair since: sticky tape + long hair + static electricity = hair loss. 🤣

Edit: just don’t look too closely. I may or may not have cut a lil chunk outta the K in Melksham. 😬

Nice work WCW

I see today going this way:

freo bring manic pressure and two way running, which we match.

they break first

we come home over the top for a reasonable win.

the game wont be won by the stars, but by the system and skills.  Our pressure will eventually be too much.

If you get your first ‘are we there yet’ at 2:05 you’re in for a long one!

Hopefully we can get a decent crowd, a lot of talk going around that we’re not turning up to games and our lack of support is pathetic supporters coming after a premiership

Interesting stat! Very young talented team

they will be a force in 2 years or so especially if they trade a couple of players in

A few beers pre game at The Duke with some Demon buddies, stroll down to the G and have another beer in the Betty Cuthbert bar, then sit down to watch another Dees win.

Jeez, I love autumn footy at the G

It should be a genuinely good contest and I expect it to be very close all day. 
Langdon is a massive out for us. 
Hopefully the home ground advantage and our ability to never move away from our game style will help us win. 
If we do win, Bowey is tied for all time wins from debut.

    JUNGLE KINGS by George On The Outer

    The top of the table Brisbane Lions came into their game against Melbourne thinking they were kings of the AFL Jungle. However, by game’s end they were shown to be toothless, as the rampant Demons gave them a lesson about the exact level you have to be at to justify that mantle.  The first quarter saw Brisbane squander some easy chances in front of goal, which kept Melbourne within striking distance and, as a result, the Lions led by a mere goal. Of course, it could have been so much d

    A STEP FORWARD? by The Oracle

    The winds of change have blown through the Melbourne Football Club over the past month or so as the team previously known for applying relentless pressure on opponents dramatically fell from its pedestal to a low not seen for some three years. This is a team that had the luxury of going through last season with one of the healthiest lists in the competition. And that health was not only reflected in a weekly injury list that revealed very few key players missing, but importantly, even fewer

    HUMBLE PIE by George on the Outer

    Seventeen wins in a row followed by a trio of losses.  The invincible Demon juggernaut was simply humbled by the Pies in that third loss, as once again they gave up an early three goal plus lead, to be over-run in the end. Is it loading? Perhaps. Is it the loss of players? Perhaps More likely, they are a combination of the two. Certainly, we have seen the side take an early lead in all of these games only to fade as reflected on the scoreboard where Melbourne has been outscored

    EARLY FREEZE by KC from Casey

    If the publicity ahead of Queens Birthday Monday was all about the Big Freeze and the game to follow the pre-game entertainment then the hardy group that braved the country’s cold snap to travel out to the windy plains beyond Cranbourne were given an early taste of what was to come in the Casey's big 52-point win over Collingwood VFL. The day started well with the Demons comprehensively beating the VFLW Magpies in the curtain-raiser elimination final and then their male counterparts donned

    THE CURSE by Norm Smith’s Ghost

    Melbourne’s fortunes took a dramatic turn for the worst on the day the Anthony Albanese was elected as Prime Minister. Since that fateful day, Steven May pinged his hamstring early in the match against the Dockers, Harry Petty came off the ground in consecutive games feeling the worse for wear, it was revealed that Tom McDonald’s foot was in messy shape, the Herald Sun exclusively reported that two years ago, Demon committee members exchanged emails critical of the team after it lost a game by 5

    BANGED UP by George On The Outer

    Melbourne v Sydney. City v City. Two top eight sides fighting for finals spots.  Sydney having beaten the Demons in ten of their last twelve encounters.    In what would turn out to be one of the most hotly contested games for the club in 2022, the physical damage to players was probably the deciding factor in the end.   Once again, Melbourne lost Tom McDonald pre-game to a yet unspecified foot injury.  More importantly was how much his work up the ground and bullocking influ

    TEN by KC from Casey

    The slippery surface of the MCG was a minor detail for the Casey Demons as they waltzed away from the Sydney Swans to record their tenth win on end in their Saturday afternoon curtain raiser. The Demons conceded the first goal of the game before recording the next three (two to Sam Weideman) to hold a 16 point lead at the first break before the Swans pegged that back to a mere three points at half time. Casey dominated the third term with four goals to nil and thereafter the Swans’ resistan

    THE COMEBACK by Whispering Jack

    How will Melbourne react to losing a game after such a long time since tasting defeat? That question is on everybody’s lips after the complete collapse of the team in the second half against Fremantle last week. When Bayley Fritsch missed his shot at goal 23 minutes into the second term, the Demons were 30 points ahead but from that point onward they were comprehensively overwhelmed as their structures fell apart all over the park. Unlike what occurred on a number of occasions during their

    SURVIVAL MODE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons managed to survive a day of challenges that in many ways mirrored their AFL counterpart Narrm from the previous day but Casey emerged undefeated from their Round 10 encounter with Frankston at Skybus Stadium. Like the Demon seniors they were undermanned and lost players due to late withdrawals, went through an arm wrestle in the first quarters, took over the game in the second to set up a big lead before a late goal gave hope to their opponent and limped through a last half

    DEES-MANTLED by George On The Outer

    Well the streak has finally ended, but in the worst possible way, when Fremantle absolutely dismantled Melbourne to record an emphatic 38 point win. This ended the 17 game winning streak of the Demons, but worse to report was that Melbourne led the game by nearly 5 goals in the second quarter, before the Dockers banged through 10 straight goals. In fact they kicked 13 goals to 1 from that point just before half time. So what happened?  Melbourne aren’t accustomed

    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
