GAMEDAY: Rd 09 vs Hawthorn


Demonland

Recommended Posts

I started going to the footy regularly by myself (ie without parents) in 1979. 

The 80s, 90s and the first 15 years of 2000 and into the  were a nightmare in terms of dees v hawks games.

So many hammeringd. So many games where the hawks seemed to take pleasure in bullying us.

And the hawks fans increasingly were more painfully smug and dismissive.

I remember winning a game against them in i think roos first year as coach.

As is my wont, i was very vocal. Though as is also my wont, good natured and never aggro or looking to get into the hawks fans.

Which didn't stop a hawks fan, who looked like an accountant, getting triggered and responding to me most of the day. Which mostly involved reminding me of the last 30 years.

So it is no surprise that I was increasingly vocal in the expression of my joy as victory looked more and more assured.

When it was clear we were going to win, I might have yelled PERCENTAGE! or some such.

The hawks fan responded with a comment along the lines of that was the dees final and it was a real pity we wouldn't be meeting them in finals any time soon.

Since that point in time the dees and hawks have been going in different directions on the ladder. 

And so I really hope we spliflicate them today. No mercy.

We owe the hawks BIG time.

Dont mind if we save a few petrol tickets for the Game against Port Next Friday night.

Dees by 40 will be just dandy.

....and, as long as you know who is not reported for striking after taking a contested mark, the thread will not reach 87 pages. :)

I feel awkward getting to the ground when it's not our home match. 

It's familiar, but different. 

Like the night i took my 13yo son to Rnd 11, 2011 thinking it was our home game but errr... got to the gate and realised it was the Bombers'.  Doh!

Reckon we were outnumbered about 7 to 1 haha.

Ended up sitting behind the cheer squad at the Punt Rd end and had a cracker of a night sticking it right up that arrogant bunch (the Bombers not the CS!!)

Green had a night out and i thought Moloney played one of his best games i'd witnessed.  Mckenzie pretty good as well.

In the end it was one of the best faux pas i ever made...

Make sure you are rude and offensive to him deever - you might get rid of him.

(Nightmare scenario- grandkids with Hawk leanings! )

Thanks Uncle for that cold shiver down my spine.

Why can't Kayo have a pre game show?

I'm a little disappointed that Frost (150 games) didn't get to join May for the coin toss.

Of course, the risk is that if you gave him the coin he might try to bounce it twice and then land it on the side.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.

    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.
