This video is really worth watching. Mali is the designer of this season’s Narrm guernsey and she tells the story of her beloved little brother’s second chance at life which is the inspiration for her design. I watched this vid when it was put on the website about a fortnight ago and today I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Mali and her little brother KC who were at Gosch’s. Regardless of how you feel about the guernsey design, you’ll love it once you’ve heard their story.

Please be the year we square the win/loss ledger for Narrm. Also if we could go back to more goals than points, would also be much appreciated.

Such a lovely story, I hope the club keeps this design for a few years. Or gets Mali to do a series.

There has been a disturbing recent trend on social media with our indigenous members of our community having their identity questioned from the ignorant overseas. Won’t go into more because it isn’t relevant to my next point but I am really proud of the club that they do this and that we just make it a part of this storied club.

The best time to start a tradition is ten years ago, the second best time is today.

I think that’s the saying…

I agree rpfc. Mali is an extremely talented artist and her whole family is mad, mad, mad Melbourne. A ton of love went into that design. 

Mali and KC were interviewed on 360 last night. It was striking how grateful they were to share their story, in particular KC at the end of the interview was so sincere in his thanks to Gerard and Robbo. I saw this for myself on Monday at Gosch’s. I told Mali that when I watched the video how bloody relieved I was to get to the end to discover KC made it through and is now thriving. She said, “Can you do something for me… can you please tell him that?” She called him over (I didn’t realise he was there) and I did just that. What can I say… this kid must hear things like this all the time but he appreciated every word I said. I actually teared up while talking to him and he reached out to hold my hand! What 17yo kid does that??? Massive hugs and gushing about the Dees ensued and it’s a meeting I’ll never forget.

Excited to see two new clubs have adopted their First Nations names!  We've now got Euro-Yroke (St Kilda) and Waalitj Marawar (Weagles).

Proud of the club for starting off this approach ❤💙

I’m gonna make a hobby out of hearing the commentators trying to pronounce ‘Waalitj Marawar’ 😅

    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?

    VOTES: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Last week Captain Max Gawn consolidated his lead over reigning champion Christian Petracca in the Demonland Player of the Year Award. Steven May, Alex Neal-Bullen & Jake Lever make up the Top 5. Your votes for the loss against the Blues. 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

    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.

    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
