2023 GRAND FINAL


Demonland

Recommended Posts

McStay is a big out for the pies. I don't rate him much but he had been decent in the finals and takes a good defender. Harris Andrews should have a field day and Brisbane forwards will keep Collingwood backs accountable. Midfield battle will be interesting and could go either way. Overall Brisbane more talented and should get it done if they don't get stage fright

At least there will be a fair few lions fans there next week.

I wonder who they'll get to present the cup.

All the ex superstar lions are coaches at other clubs. Maybe Jono Brown. Collingwood no idea. 

Get Mcrae to do it. He will be there anyway!

There will be more Lions fans than some think. The Pies army wont have access to anywhere near enough tickets. The Brisbane and Vic based fans will get their fill.

Literally all the thousands of neutrals at the GF will be hoping for a Pies loss.

Hopefully its a hot day .

Expecting enormous amounts of love from the cheating umpires for the Daicos bros.

I expect all media people present to get on their knees and kiss CEO Gils boots as he enters the dining room for the last time and gorge on a 5 course delight with Grange Hermitage to wash down all the prawns and oysters.

Then F off!

Dont come back.

It’s a bit early in the season, but the ladies are looking very primed

You’re right, we shouldn’t get ahead of ourselves. But it’s more likely than not. 😁

There’s another Grand Final being played this afternoon. The VFL decider at Ikon. And I’ll be there as a diehard Gold Coast Suns supporter, for today anyways. I’ve got my Suns cap and scarf and now I just need to learn the song. 🤭

Agree, think it helps the Bris backs a lot not having a 3rd tall to worry about.

Anyone know any Pies/bears members who can't get tickets? its all over twitter and online news, but I think they just don't understand the tickets don't come for a few days.

It's a horribly unjust system regardless. The selling of barcodes for $5.50 to members from teams that didn't even make the game seems the very definition of extortion.

Lot of Anger on Twitter "X" from Collingwood fans who paid $1000 for Grand Final Guarantee yet did not get a ticket in the ballot. And this years ticketing charge "which it a complete ripoff" was $6 this year.

It's The Pies so who cares but Grand Final Guarantee should mean just that and the extra $6 charge should be illegal. That $6 charge is applied to the four teams in the prelims. 

I take it clubs can only sell so many Grand Final Guarantees a year.

Jeez I'd love to read the fine print on that $1000 GF "guarantee". That sounds ridiculous. I'd muster a [censored], but seeing as it's Collingwood, I am all out of empathy.

I love GF day - a semi religious experience which is planned, and follows the same routine each year.

Sleep in (rare these days), slow coffee and toast, then wonder whether I can be bothered watching any of the AFL breakfasts (I can't be bothered. I never watch them any more, because the new professional feel of them robs them of a great earthy quality the old North Melbourne ones used to have.)

At 11am, gather my massive amount of snacks, drinks (usually Harcourt cider, the best cider in the world)  and laptop, and begin watching all the unnecessary and repetitive rubbish. I have pies and chips for lunch.

The rest of my household are disinterested so I get to watch in in isolation, which I like. In 2021, all the family watched it together.

Will be barracking VERY strongly for the Lions. The filth winning is not an option.

From the Age

"Priority one members paid close to $1000 for a membership that guaranteed them a grand final ticket, but at least 37 of those members missed out when they selected no standing room during the registration process and then were allocated standing room tickets only in the ballot."

So they obviously oversold the guarantee in the sense that they included "standing room". No one would think that a guaranteed ticket included the possibility of standing room

Stinks to high heaven and I hope the ACCC comes down on them like a ton of bricks

    GAMEDAY: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    It's Game Day and it very well could be the last roll of the dice for the Demon's finals aspirations in 2024. A loss to the bottom side would be another embarrassing moment in a cursed year for the Dees whilst a win could be the spark they need to reignite the fire in the belly.

    THE HUNTER by The Oracle

    Something struck me as I sat on the couch watching the tragedy of North Melbourne’s attempt to beat Collingwood unfold on Sunday afternoon at the MCG.    It was three quarter time, the scoreboard had the Pies on 12.7.79, a respectable 63.16% in terms of goal kicking ratio. Meanwhile, the Roos’ 18.2.110 was off the charts at 90.00% shooting accuracy. I was thinking at the same time of Melbourne’s final score only six days before, a woeful 6.15.51 or 28.57% against Collingwood’s 14.5.89

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    PREGAME: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    After two disappointing back to back losses the Demons have the bye in Round 14 and then face perennial cellar dweller North Melbourne at the MCG on Saturday night in Round 15. Who comes in and who goes out?
