Fly The Flag in 2022



Recommended Posts

Last year I waited until we won the PF to put our colours out...didn't want to jinx our GF chances putting them out earlier. 

This year, I'm wondering when to put them out: after this week's QF or wait to see if we make or if we win a PF.  

I'm inclined to wait until we make a PF which could be this week.  What are other DL's planning?

Can't wait to put out my new very large banner:

Defs NOT before a prelim win. 

There’s only one thing sadder than waiting ‘til dark to take down your many, many decorations, all the while crying, after a losing GF. And that’s doing the same after losing a semi or prelim.

Last year waiting till after the PF win gave us two weeks of flag flying because of the pre GF bye. 

Think I'll put them up after we qualify for the PF which could be this week, next week or not at all.

Crazy to wait until GF week, that'll only be 6 days of banner prior to our second flag.

I'm putting my banner up on friday i reckon.  I am preparing for less goodwill from the neighbours this year though. they all got on the board the poor demons last year but it will taper and if we win it again, I am looking forward to the hostility i receive next year!

My wife was dressing up our house last year in grand final week in red and blue for the game, I wasn't interested in any of it for this exact reason. Scars from 1988.

Needless to say, it stayed up for a long, long time afterwards.

My miserable “un-decorating” was on GF night 2000. At the time I was living on a main road, very conspicuous house with so much exposure and flanked on either side by Essendon supporters. In fact, I lived in a neighbouring suburb of Essendon, so they were everywhere. When the traffic slowed to a crawl outside mine, some would yell abuse from their cars. Someone even egged my house! Yep, just another entry on my very, very long list of reasons for hating Essendon.

Bah! A problem for the  hoi polloi WCW. You can avoid mixing with the riff and riff by purchasing a luxurious manor in the splendid isolation of a bucolic rural setting.

And risk having the likes of you as a neighbour? Yeah nah, that’s the hugest bunch of NOPE right there.
I’d sooner live amongst the riff and riff. Whatever that means

So in Sudan we have a vast fleet of white 4WD (sadly Toyotas and not Range Rovers, all of the old MFC stickers I have get stuck on a rear windshield whenever I travel to a new sub office. I was most chuffed when an Essendon supporter from another agency OCHA, was in Damazine and sent me a picture asking 'is this you?'. The other pics are from Finland on the ferry, driving around after the Carlton win with the scarf out the window.

Man around the corner painted this entire fence in Bulldog colours last year. I went round to buy the paper next morning and he had repainted back to white. He must have been up all night. 

Do you reckon he had the white paint ready?

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro

    BOMBED by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne has all but assured itself of a top two finish to the (second) 2022 AFLW season after crushing Essendon by 41 points on Sunday. It now holds a four point lead over third placed Adelaide along with a handy percentage advantage with one round remaining before the finals. The Demons opened kicking with the advantage of the squally wind that often prevails at Casey Fields and for the third week in a row, they kept their opponents scoreless in the opening term.

    DAISY DOES IT by Whispering Jack

    The Gold Coast has been treated to a feast of womens football over the past couple of days. On Friday night, the Brisbane Lions claimed flag favouritism when they knocked the Adelaide Crows off their second placed perch at Metricon Stadium. Then on Saturday evening at the same venue, the Melbourne Demons consolidated their hold on that vacated second spot when, they ruthlessly smashed a finals contender in consecutive weeks, this time the home town favourites, the Suns.    It was a case
